Hi both of these shells are from the red/coralline crag at Ramsholt, Suffolk

I believe the first example is of Aequipecten opercularis and the second larger shell may be Pecten maximus. The later however does not appear in British Caenozoic fossils

I would appreciate it if anyone can confirm these ID's or suggest otherwise

Thanks

Amazing compared to my scallop. Found in the midlands. Click image for larger version - Name: image.jpg, Views: 13, Size: 582.99 KB

Thanks Rob
Gandolf, you have odd shaped scallops!😯
Seriously though do you have an ID for it and where's it from?
