CRETACEOUS EPIFAUNA

Oysters attached to an echinoid shell

  

80 million years old

Upper Chalk (Cretaceous period)

  

Epifauna is the name given to animals that live attached to hard surfaces such as rocks and shells. Epifauna include oysters, sponges and barnacles.

  

This is a good example of fossil epifauna where oysters have attached themselves to the shell of an echinoid, or sea urchin, on the floor of the Chalk Sea.

  

This specimen is from an old teaching collection and no further details are known. It is presented in a plastic display box.
