Jerea sponge?

Bericht door fifbrindacier » 01 mei 2021, 20:20

Hi, that's a long time since I posted on this forum, so, I hope you're all well despite that COVID pandemy.

I need confirmation or infirmation about the identification of this Cenomanian sponge, found in a cultivated field in the department of Charente. I thought that could be a Jerea, what do you think?

It is 6 centimeters high and 5 wide.

Cenomanien?
Je pense c'est Campanien.

The photo is too blurred to decide whether this is a sponge.
It might also be a simple stone.

Best wishes,
Oliver

@Oliver, although sponges are quite difficult to determine by pictures,
I'm quite sure it's a Jerea clavata

@Tom: No doubt that you are sure, but better pictures would help
the other forum members to compare this fossil with their own finds.
