  2. brach anatomy

    I found this apparently silicified pedicle valve as an erratic boulder. The age is unknown, but presumably Ordovician or Silurian. Provenance of Baltica (found in Poland, but in gravel parking lot). Any clues on the order? The rest of the shell is hardly preserved. Can you help to verify my anatomical identifications?

  10. Last weekend I collected a few large Callovian Rhynchonellida. I will trade these for Atrypida and/or Spiriferida. Thank you. ps. I have other Brachiopoda species from same spot.
  11. so what brought this on?

    Gaspard Daniele Gaspard Growth stages in Articulate brachiopod shells and their relation to biomineralization in: Brachiopods through time Proceedings of the Second International Brachiopod Congress,Dunedin,New Zealand/1990 edited by D.I.Mckinnon,D.E.Lee,J.D.Campbell recommended? you bet Do not simplistically assume more or less linear relations in the accretionary growth of marine invertebrates!!! I have posted before on the relation between size/shape/ontogeny/life history/ecology( I think)

  13. Great day in Paulding, Ohio

    First trip of the year today to the "Fossil Gardens" at Paulding, Ohio. This is quarry spoil of mid-Devonian age, Silica Formation. There was not a cloud in the sky, and temps were relatively warm at 43 deg. F. I was the only one there for most of the day, and it was extremely peaceful. What a great day. Here are pics of some of the finds. These are "farm fresh" and haven't even been washed yet, but I did take time to polish some horn corals and get some acetate peels (couldn't wait). A large Cystiphylloides rugose coral.

  18. Thanks to @minnbuckeye who gave me a site suggestion to an Iowa Devonian locality when I was on my way to the White River Formation of Nebraska, I was able to satisfy my palaeozoic fix this past June. Here are my finds (scale in photos is cm/mm): Orthospirifer cf. O. cooperi Strophodonta sp. Cranaena sp.

  21. NJ beach brachiopod?

    Years of collecting the strand line in Asbury Park, NJ, have revealed a lot of the rarer elements of the modern shallow marine fauna, as well as of the Cretaceous marine biota whose fossils wash up there. But this month I was astounded to come across this shell, which I believe to be a craniid brachiopod's dorsal valve. Based on its condition I can't be sure whether it's modern, subfossil, or even Cretaceous. It's matrix-free and shows signs of having been encrusted by cheilostome bryozoa. Can someone confirm or refute this ID? Can someone with expertise in the Cretaceous coastal plain comment on the likelihood of this specimen's possible Cretaceous origin? Thanks!
  22. Mineral Wells Fossil Park, TX

    Hello, I am hoping someone familiar with the brachiopods of the Mineral Wells Fossil Park, TX (Late Pennsylvanian) and vicinity, might recognize this taxon. It looks to me like an Athyrididae. Perhaps Cleiothyridina sp.?. @BobWill ? I also have some Punctospirifer cf. P. kentuckiensis from the same site. Here's the specimen in question. Thanks for any help.

  24. Ordovician (St. Leon, IN)

    This is a trip to St. Leon, Indiana (Late Ordovician), that I took on Tuesday the 28th. Weather was cloudy, 66 deg. F. Conditions were wet and muddy, but a lot of fresh material had weathered out and was exposed from the winter. More or less typical finds. The complete Ambonychia steinkern was the trip-maker for me. Here is a view of the roadcut.
