Hi guys, I found this fossil plate in a woodland near me, I've identified some of the fossils including star crinoids, petrified wood and a partial shark fin? Would like identification of as much as possible on this plate though if possible please, thanks a lot.

Hi

From the photos of the slab you have found I think you have already sorted out as much of an ID as is possible, sometimes it is not possible to get a more specific ID from worn fragments. Sorry.

Hello, this lump has also a lot of bivalves in it and with the crinoid bits it looks a lot like some upper Pliensbachien material I know of.
A bit later I saw the map and concluded that upper Pliensbachien is well possible.

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hi, I'd never thought of looking there. Have you tried the old railway cutting? I've had a look in Swinescaif quarry but couldn't reach the interesting areas far too dangerous.
