Hi
I collected these recently on the foreshore from the coralline/red crag at Ramsholt, Suffolk.

I believe they are all the same with possible ID's being; Astarte obiquata, Astarte omalii or Astarte mitabilia.

Your help and advice are appreciated

I think the last two shells on the second row are Astarte omalii after looking at some pictures online of other Astarte omalii shells and the last one on the first row might also be Astarte omalii too. I think the rest are Astarte mitabilia after also looking at some pictures online of Astarte mitabilia shells. You've certainly got some nice finds there! I hope this helps.
