This is a nice impression of both shells of a bivalve, highlighting the symmetry about the join. Contrast with Brachipods with symmetry about the centreline of the shell. Bivalves are more common in the sandstone deposits such as at Wasp Head whereas Brachiopods are more common in the siltstones around Ulladulla.
