Found in blues lias boulder at Dunraven Bay Glamorgan yesterday. About 2 to 3 cms across excluding what appear to be “tentacles” protruding at the bottom. There were a mixture of other fossils in the rock. It was in a rock below the Jurassic cliffs on right hand side of the bay. I have cropped the photo.

Thank you for any help.

It looks like a shattered shell with some fracture marks around it on the rock however I cannot be sure due to the picture quality.

How about it being an Oyster attached to an ammonite shell, where the ammonite has almost entirely been removed by erosion with just a small piece of imprint remaining or, depending on which way the light is coming onto the specimen, with most of the ammonite still buried in the rock?
