Fossil Crassostrea gigas reef at the middle Pleistocene Shimosa Group in Kasumigaura Town, Ibaraki

This exposure of the reef is extended for about 5m in height and 70m in width. Indigenous shells of Crassostrea are observed in gregarious vertical position called relay strategy which dead shells of earlier generations offer the basis for the attachment of later generations. However, almost shells of Crassostrea are concentrated parallel to the bedding by tidal and wave currents.
