Ah. Maybe I'll just go with Pseudpecten sp.

I guess identifying fossils down to species is mostly a job for the specialist unless the fossils is particularly distinctive or well-known at some particular locality. And even more difficult from just a photograph.

Thanks anyway.

Can anybody identify the following fossil from Blockley (Lower Jurassic, Pliensbachian I think) -

A pecten I believe, but I've seen it named as Pecten sp., Psuedopecten acuticostata and Chlamys inequivalvis! Positive ID much welcomed!

Hi!

Yes it is a Pseudopecten, but I think that Pseudopecten equivalvis (SOWERBY 1816) is the valid name.

Best wishes
