New York Pelecypod



This fossil appears to be a pelecypod, not sure about its name though.  It was found in the Hamilton Group of Rensselaerville, New York.  Animal existed in the Middle Devonian Period.

Thanks to Stan and Phil for the fossil.

I'm thinking that may be a Modiomorpha concentrica as similar shells can be found in the Windom shale near Tully, NY.
