  1. Doug Von Gausig

    Mississippian fossil, Arizona

    This little thingy was in Mississippian Redwall limestone in central Arizona. It was in a section of the Redwall with very few other fossils. It's about 10mm long and 7mm wide. What do you think?

    Mississippian Isopod?

    I run across these guys frequently in the Mississippian Redwall Limestones around Arizona's Verde Valley. They are generally accompanied by lots of Crinoids and solitary Rugose Corals. They're always this oval shape with segmented structure. They look like an isopod, to me, but could be some other crustacean. Any help out there for the identification of these "bugs?"

    Unidentified Brachiopods

    I've had some difficulty narrowing down the identity on some assorted brachiopods. The diagnostic features may not be preserved but I figured I'd post them here to see if anyone knew. @Tidgy's Dad Any ideas? The first is a single large valve from the Warsaw Formation in Fenton, Missouri (The old Meramec Bridge site). I've been able to track down most species reported from here and identify everything else but this one is harder. The wear doesn't help. The second are a couple o Echinoconchidae valve casts in chert from a creek in Lincoln County, Missouri. It
  4. It's been a long time since I've written a trip report. Not that I wasn't hiking, I was hiking like mad and finding stuff. Just didn't get around to documenting in the latter part of 2020. Too much craziness. A couple of days ago, I went in search of an extremely elusive shale formation, that contains some of the loveliest ferns I have seen. My records show I specifically planned 13 hikes last year trying to find another exposure. That was over 100 miles of fruitless searching. Zero. Zilch. Well, two days ago I found another small exposure. Scenic photos of the journey

    Spiny Fern Glen ID

    During my third trip to a Fern Glen outcropping, I came across this specimen. It doesn't really resemble anything else I've found there. Luckily the "spines" are pretty sturdy, and I didn't break any of them when digging it out. Any ideas?

    Mississippian Coral ID Help

    I found this coral several months ago in the Late Mississippian Mauch Chunk Group of West Virginia. I admit that it is a worn example, but it is the only Carboniferous tabulate coral that I have found so far. My initial guess is Michelinia sp. Is there enough there to make an identification? Any help is greatly appreciated!
  7. Every now and then I find something odd on the ground in the backcountry. Do not feel this is a fossil. At first glance I thought this was just some siliceous ooze with intricate folds. At second glance I noted the broken surfaces were not conchoidal as one would expect with silicate materials. It almost appears like extremely fine-grained basalt on the broken ends Specimen is 1.5" (38mm) long and 1.25" (32mm) wide. Thickness is 3/8" (8-9mm) I'll call this the top view. Primarily very dark black Bottom view has a decided reddish cast

    Wayne's Carboniferous

    When it comes to fossils, I am a generalist by nature. I haven't met a fossil that I didn't like! However, in an attempt to narrow my focus a bit, I have decided to take a cue from Adam ( @Tidgy's Dad ) and start this thread. I hope to showcase some of my collection, but more importantly have a central place to post IDed specimens, information I have found regarding them, and/or ask for help with IDs. Hopefully other's will get enjoyment from seeing the specimens and potentially learn a thing or two. So come along on my journey through the Carboniferous! If you haven't had the plea

    Weird Kentucky Cave Fossil

    This fossil(?) was found on the roof of a cave in the Renault or Ste. Genevieve Limestones in Kentucky. Mississipian period. I apologize for no scale. It is about 6 inches long I talked to some usgs fossil guys but they weren't sure. They thought it could be from an armored fish. It is unlike any fossil I've ever seen. I originally thought it was just chert, but on closer look, it appeared to have bilateral symmetry. It seems like whatever was in there was replaced by the chert. Although, I'm not really familiar with how fossils form. EDIT: the fossil was very much 3D. Th

    Circular Branching fossil

    Could this be a sponge? Note the radial structure and the occasional branching rods. Collected in Missouri, but location and age are unknown. Also, the specimen is sawn to 3/4" thick and the fossil doesn't extend into the sawn area! There is a lot of tiny crinoidal hash in the matrix rock. The light blue grid is one inch.

    An Autumn Road Trip

    In September, the desire to collect the Burlington Formation, Mississippian of Iowa got the best of me, “forced” my truck to make a little road trip down that way. The trip was about 4 hours, necessitating an overnight stay. Covid was running rampant, compelling me to sleep in the back of my pickup and eat out of a cooler full of food instead of motels and restaurants. This left a 64 year old man a bit stiff in the morning. The nice thing about the Burlington, it did not tax my body too much, allowing me hunt my allotted 8 hours with ease. Normally the Burlington is searched for crinoid specim

    Nodules in Redwall Limestone, Central AZ

    The photo shows several nodules embedded in Redwall Limestone (Mississippian) along highway 89a west of Jerome, Arizona. Also in this layer are crinoids, brachiopods and solitary rugose corals. I think I've read about these in the dim, dusty past, and I seem to recall that they are not fossils, but some other geological phenomenon. Any help?
  13. The colder days of late has allowed me to work on the Burlington matrix that I brought home this summer. It has revealed some real treasures, at least for me. But I am stymied on a few finds and look for some opinions of forum members. 1. A few questions on the first piece. My goal was to clean up a large piece of ??? Shark spine? While cleaning, two teeth were uncovered. Here is the "backside" tooth. Now the "front side" tooth Initially just the tip of the tooth was showing, but as I progressed with cleaning, this "moustache" was exposed
  14. It reminds me of a soccer ball but very small. I was thinking some sort of coral that I haven't seen yet in my research. (I am new to this but I did try to research)
  15. SWMOnaturalist

    Wondering what this might be as well

    Wondering if this is some sort of sea-star sponge? From what I researched?
  16. These fossils are fairly common in the Mississippian redwall limestones of central Arizona. I believe they are rugose corals. Is this correct?
  17. It was about a month ago that our Fossil Club was going to meet at a Devonian location in central Iowa. The first cold weather of the season hit just then and required heavy coveralls to stay warm, so my sights were not set too high for this trip. I decided to make it a 2 day hunt and sneak down to SE Iowa the first day. My goal was to attempt to find some shark teeth from the upper Burlington Formation. The teeth from this location are extremely fragile and will turn to powder if touched with anything but kid gloves. This is a lesson that I have learned from multiple times collecting with li
  18. Took a recent collecting trip to a site that preserves stem-tetrapod, anthracosaur (reptile-like amphibian) footprints from the Mississippian subperiod. As seen in the photos, it's fairly common for these to show an overlap of front and back (manus and pes) prints. As part of the agreement for site access, I can't provide any info on geologic formation or location, but it's not the Union Chapel Mine or any other well-known Carboniferious ichnofossil site. Paleontologist Alfred Romer coined the term "Romer's gap" to describe the lack of tetrapod fossils in the earlies Carboniferous Period (r
  19. Its been a long time since I last posted any finds, so I thought I'd show you folks what Ive been finding so far. Ive been out a lot this year, and have done quite a bit of exploring. I haven't taken pics of everything yet but Ill add to this as I do. This past summer I took a trip to west Tennessee to an exposure of the Coffee Sands, a Late Cretaceous formation. I was able to find the site, but unfortunately, I found no fossils there. Luckily there was an exposure of the Lower Devonian Birdsong Shale nearby! This site exposes the 'brachiopod zone' which is the bottom of the format
