Camptonectes auritus from Segenthal, Germany

Camptonectes auritus is a scallop like shell that is found in the Jurassic aged rocks (Bajocian stage) of Segenthal, Germany. I like the faint pattern that is evident on the surface of the shell.

My ID is based on the book "Sengenthal - Ein Eldorado für Fossiliensammler - Die Muscheln des Bajocium von Sengenthal" by Matthias Weissmueller from whom I also purchased this specimen via his E-bay store.
