Description

Dies sind zwei Exemplare der Süßwassermuschel Carbonicola acuta (SOWERBY), die mit den heutigen Süßwassermuscheln jedoch nicht verwandt sind. Sie lebten in den Flüssen und Sümpfen um die Steinkohlewälder herum; ihre Anreicherung in bestimmten Horizonten zeigt damit Übeflutungsereignisse der Moore an.

Alter: ca. 318 Mio Jahre, ob. Westfal A, ob. Bashkirium, Oberkarbon
Fundort: Zeche Monopol, Kamen-Bergkamen, Kreis Unna
