An old rock and mollusc fossils.

Geçenlerde memlekette görüntülediğim bir kaya üzerinde yer alan yumuşakça fosilleri.Makilik bir alanda yer alan kıraç bir tarla içindeydi bu kaya. Denizden 300 km kadar içerde, İç Batı Anadolu'da, belki milyonlarca yıl öncesine ait fosilleşmiş deniz yumuşakçalarının kalıntıları...

very interesting photograph of fossil of mollusc. It is a very interesting image for all paleantologists and who love investigation of the past. good work. i love it. keep it up. tfs.

Hello Omer,
I do see what appear to be molluscs and the prominent bodies with concentric structures may well be stromatolites while the outcrop looks like reef detritus. Do you know whether this occurrence has been studied by palaeontologists? The occurrence of molluscs together with cyanobacteria (stromatolites) at their prime could shed some light on the early evolution of the molluscs. A very worthy contribution here.
