Hello
         Our museum has had this fossil handed in for id.
It was found at Thrumrait, Oman and I'm thinking it's a brachiopod but if anyone can add further information I'd be grateful.  Scale is in cm. Thanks.

Hi,

It's not a brachiopod, it's a steinkern (internal mould) of a bivalve. Difficult to go much further unless someone knows the locality well.

Interesting, thank you, I've never heard of a steinkern until today !
