Found this today on a beach in Panama, Central America. The shell is clear but on the reverse I am not sure if this is another fossil imprint or not. It looks a bit prawn-like to me! Thanks and I have lots more fossils and assorted stuff from this area waiting for identification.

The first one is a bivalve imprint but I cannot tell you what species. The other one I can't see enough detail to give yo any help.
