    Spiked Gastropod from Alpena, Michigan

    Sorry I don’t have clearer photos or anything in here for scale. This is freshly pulled from a ditch in Alpena, Michigan and we’re still out in the field. I had no idea Michigan had spiked gastropods. Any help on an ID would be most appreciated.

    Field Collection at St. Leon

    On my eighth trip to the locality, I collected fossils at the famous St. Leon roadcut. Exposed were the Waynesville and Liberty formations, which date to the immense coral reefs of the upper Ordovician, or 450 ±5 MYA. The site was heavily picked, its erosive forces slowed during Indiana's summer heat. My drops of sweat evaporated on the sun-tempered limestone faster than I could count to ten. Despite the setbacks, acquisitions were generous. Best for last. Behold my brachiopods. The top row is Strophomena sp., the top-left sample demonstrating encrusting bryozoan. The second row is

    Gastropod and cephalopod?

    Bellerophontid from Bridgeport

    I found this in Texas, near Lake Bridgeport, in the Jasper Creek Formation, Canyon Group, Missouri Series, Pennsylvanian Sub-period. The flared lip, think shell and absence of obvious sutures or septa tell me it is more likely to be a Bellerophontid gastropod than a cephalopod. The open umbilicus and the large size is making a firm ID difficult. Any ideas?
  6. Vestavia Hills, AL (Ordovician to Mississippian) I found these very odd rocks exposed by recent flooding. i wondered about a tree root mold or burrow for the first one, but figured low chance of identifying. Just in case, I did a vinegar soak to remove more of the mud. Today, I saw a tiny little spiral shell. Is it a fossil? (vs a modern snail that got trapped in this sediment). Any thoughts about the overall shape of the rock? Since it was found nearby, I’m including a pic of the other weird rock. I considered part of a horseshoe crab or trilobite molt, but I can thin

    Unidentified Gastropod

  8. I found these while on a trek uphill. I’ve posted it on different sites but no one can give a positive ID on my finds. Location is Cebu, Philippines by the way. Always been curious about how the ocean life was here millions of years ago as most studies indicate that the Philippine archipelago was submerged in water. For more angles, click on that imgur link as I have labelled those there.
  9. Day Two ; Locality One (or Six if you include Day One) Black Sahara, South of Erfoud 20th February 2019 Well this is where things really get interesting, so stick with this thread as there are dozens of photos of fossils coming up. Looks at the tags if you want clues. I was up bright and early and wandered out at about 7 am to watch the sun rise over the still mighty Erg Chebbi dunes. And as night's candles were burnt out and jocund day stood tiptoe over the misty duney tops, the chaps came to join me and managed lots of photos. Here's one, if you w
  10. I made a trip to a different spot on the North Sulfur River this morning. I had been to this spot one time last year, but an unforecast rain shower showed up and turned the river into such a muddy mess that I turned around and left without finding anything. With a 100 degree high forecast for today, I didn't figure rain would be a problem. I found some of the usual things you expect to find at NSR, Hamulus worm tubes, a gastropod, a perfectly preserved complete bivalve, some interesting bones, and lots of bacculites. The only bacculite I brought home was the one in this photo, with

    Gastropod id?

    Found at fossil & prairie park in Rockford, IA. Any ideas about a species? Also am I correct that it looks like a coral or maybe an encrusting sponge was growing on top of it? Thanks in advance.

    New Gastropod for Me

    I stumbled onto this cute tiny gastropod from the Galena/Ordovician in Minnesota but am having difficulty with its identification. Strophostylus textiles is listed as a possiblity in Minnesota Fossils and Fossiliferous Rocks by Robert Sloan. What do you think?? Mike

    Alpena Michigan fossil finds

    Some finds from our most recent fossil finding expedition to Alpena Michigan. Anyone know species possibly of these two? One with spikes and one without?
  14. Last weekend I had the opportunity to spend a few hours collecting in a quarry in northern Illinois that exposes most of the Galena Group (Late Ordovician). There was lots of fresh rock to hunt through, and it was a good and productive trip. As usual, lots of gastropod molds were found. Hormotoma sp. Liospira sp. Sinuites sp.

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg

    Gastropod? Mollusk? Or?

    Our 3rd grader found this on a beach in Coos County, OR. Her first impression is that this is a snail fossil. We’re wondering 1) what is this and 2) if this is an internal mold? There’s also an impression on one side of the matrix that looks like a separate cast. But we’re really not sure… we are having a difficult time visualizing what’s going on here. When you look closely at the spiral it does appear to have shell in there. We’ve googled a ton and compared pictures of different spiral fossils, but still aren’t sure. Thanks for any info!
