Help me identify these bivalves!
Fossilsupremacy posted a topic in Fossil IDFound some (what i presume are) bivalves on the same hunt i found my ironstone! I decided to post them separately cause i wanna be as active as possible without overcrowding anything. They’re a little over 2 centimeters, my estimate at least (i’m terrible at math and not familiar with the metric system so bare with me-)
Clam burrow, giant worm tube, poss bacculite?
Lone Hunter posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this on the Elm fork of Trinity river bank, Cretaceous Alluvium. I have found clams, baculites, ammonites and crabs there. This slightly resembles a piece of baculite, size suggests clam burrow. Appreciate an ID!
Scapula? Other? Pareidolia?
aper posted a topic in Fossil IDOver the course of 4 trips to an alluvial outcrop in the Denver CO area I found these fossil-like pieces that ended up fitting together. No idea what it is. Would love expertise opinion. I found a fossilized cochlea near here so think it's a fossiliferous area. Also lots of fossil wood in the patch. Tertiary?
Post Oak Creek fossil ID
KimTexan posted a topic in Fossil IDI found these in Post Oak Creek near Sherman city limits. The formation within the creek is Alluvium which is Quaternary, Holocene, Cenozoic (in reverse order) I believe. It is surrounded by Austin chalk which is cretaceous. I have no idea what they are. I’m certain I’ve seen a modern version of this while Scuba diving, but for the life of me I can’t remember what it was or where I saw it. They look a little like a barnacle, but not exactly, maybe a tube worm colony? Please let me know your thoughts.
Is there fossils to Be found in Alluvium?
WhodamanHD posted a topic in Questions & AnswersI just got my hands on a geological map, and near where I live there is Alluvium on river banks. This is Holocene, so pretty young and I understand alluvium is basically soil. Is there fossils possible in this stuff? Or even subfossils? Btw I'm not sure if this is in the right category so mods feel free to move it. Thanks guys!
