a couple fossils from Texas
yearsago posted a topic in Fossil IDnorth (south, sorry) of Austin Texas, halfway up a small mountain, dug from a pit in the ground. Most of what I got from the pit have been a variety of shell fossils, one coral fossil, and a lot of sandstone with embedded fossils. the shells are easy to id, they look like shells, but I don't know what these things are. a lot of flint in the area too.
Lee Creek unknown
daves64 posted a topic in Fossil IDI recently bought some Lee Creek spoils matrix from @PaleoRon & have been digging through it here & there. This morning among the usual teeth, mouth plates & vertebrae I found this. No idea what it is. Sort of small.. 4 mm x 5 mm in size with one side covered with rings. Any ideas? The backside is just lumpy more than anything.
Wood or Shell?
ARob posted a topic in Fossil IDI found these fragments on the beach in South Carolina (USA) and I can’t seem to find any information about them online. They're approximately 2-2.5 cm thick and feel a bit like metal. Image searches of petrified wood, turtle shell and coral haven’t produced anything similar. Any ideas?

cytros posted a topic in Fossil IDNot sure if this is petrified wood or a concretion due to the dark center on one side. I could use some clarification and input.
South Texas Upper Cretaceous Rings
CraigHyatt posted a topic in Fossil IDThese are from Eagle Pass, TX. This layer is Upper Cretaceous. These look like weathered iron concretions, but for two things: (1) some of them have an ammonite curve to them and (2) some have a series of equidistant radial bumps. I thought it was likely they were concretions, so I just marked them in GPS and left them there. Do you think they are worth more investigation?
Comanche Peak Rings
rwise posted a topic in Fossil ID.are they burrows or something else? Maybe coral? Found in Walnut Clay formation of Comanche Peak, Hood County, TX...about 1.5 inches long Found this in matrix and need help identifying.....found in Walnut Clay formation of Comanche Peak in Hood County....rings are approximately 3/8 of an inch long and are not connected. Lots of gastropods, urchins, and ammonites in the immediate area. At first I thought this was a gastropod, but the "ribs" are not connected at all. Thanks in advance for your help.
ewolff posted a topic in Fossil IDCan anyone ID this fossil by chance? I found it near the town of Llano, TX. It has several concentric rings, but no apparent radial lines. I'm admittedly a bit of a novice, so thank you in advance.
