    Visiting my place in Cyprus since yesterday and happened to come across some fossils of mollusks. They are abundant on the hills on the outskirts of Nicosia. Don't have any information on top of my head regarding epoch. Will do some more research but posting them here so our experts can shed some more light.

    Looks like bivalves mostly, some kind of Oyster. First pic in the first post, lower right, looks cephalopodan, any more pics of that one.

    Hi Kevin,

    I have collected some of them and I'm cleaning them right now. Will post more pics once they are done.
