Volutis pina casimiri snail is a fossil of a snail of the Volutidae family encrusted by worms and bryozoans (a water invertebrate which formed colonies). The presented form is a kind of a fossilised natural cast, which was created when the softer parts of the organism became pickled.
Snail fossils were found in abundance in rocks of the Cretaceous period in the area of Kazimierz nad Wisłą.
The specimen comes from the collection of the Museum of Geology of the Institute of Geological Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences. It used to be part of the collection of Alojzy Mazurek, the geologist affiliated with the Polish Geological Institute, whose research and rich collection of fauna from the years 1930–1932 helped to solve many issues connected with the development of deposits of the Cretaceous.
