    What The Fossil?

    Found this in Big Brook, NJ (Late Cretaceous Navesink Fm.). It's about 2.5 cm wide. I don't even know what phylum to put it in. My first thought was bryozoan. There is one very thorough paper on Bryozoa of the Atlantic Coastal Plain, but it has nothing to fit the bill. Looks like sponge with those big holes. Found a picture of Discopora sp. that looks very close, but that genus is not listed in PBDB anywhere in North America. Gabb thought he had something similar from NJ, but it turned out to be a sand concretion. The last picture is the underside of the specimen, which may or may not be a thi
  2. The fossil bryozoa colony I found on April 6th turned out to be a pocket of individual colonies. I've posted about this find in the past month. Happy Collecting. Atactotoechus fruticosus Fossil Bryozoa Colony Moscow Formation, Middle Devonian (380 million years) New York State It's very difficult to find complete/near complete colonies of Devonian bryozoans that also look great in a display case. These Atactotoechus fruticosus bryozoan colonies are from a newly (4/2022) discovered pocket of around two dozen individual colonies. This Bryo
  3. 2022 Fossil Collecting Season Our season started out great with a warm 63 degree day here in New York State. We often don't dig on our first collecting trip of the season Its more of a surface collecting trip just to scout out the area and see what winter has exposed for us. I had my geology hammer of course but no mini sledge, chisels, or pry bars. One of my favorite things to find in early spring are colonies of Bryozoa (Atactotoechus frutiosus). You have to collect every little piece of the colony and reassemble them back it home. This will take anywhere from an hour to many hou

    Toronto Brachiopod And Bryozoan Help

    I found these two fossils from Mimico Creek in Toronto, Canada and they both belong to the Georgian Bay formation, late Ordovician. The first one I believe is a Pseudolingula, but I can't really nail it down to a species level. The other is a bryozoan, and I was thinking of Prasopora. What do you guys think? The brachiopod I found in shale, but the bryozoan in a limestone bed with other bryozoas. The brachiopod: The bryozoa:

    Permian Outcrop in Callahan County

    Howdy folks! I haven’t posted a hunt in a long time, and I got a chance today to go to a very productive location I’ve discovered. This was the first time I’ve had any amount of time to look, so I ended up pleasantly surprised by what I found. Unfortunately, I don’t know the species of brachiopod, but I suspect they might be Pulchratia, though you’re welcome to correct me, I don’t know invertebrates very well yet. The site was created from being a man made pond, where the removed soil was then dumped a ways from the pond and after many years it has eroded down to expose some really nice

    Beltzville State Park, PA

    Beltzville State Park is one of those rare parks where collecting is allowed. The adjacent federal land, owned and operated by the Corps of Engineers to operate the dam there, is accessible ONLY WITH A PERMIT. It is a functioning spillway and there is a gun range for the local police, so you and USACE need to make sure you are safe. With that important disclaimer out of the way, here's the good stuff! Beltzville is a very productive Middle Devonian site which includes the PA State Fossil, the trilobite Eldredgeops rana. Although no one in the group found any definite complete
  9. On July 1st, 2021, I went for the first time to a public, personal site and was very pleased with the results of my fossil excursion. The locale consists of several exposed formations, namely the Liberty formation I was hunting in. In my region of southwestern Ohio, that's known to be one of the best fossil-hunting formations due to its remarkable preservation of particularly fragile Ordovician life, even when compared to the excellent fossil preservation quality of other formations in the area. The thirty-three degrees Celsius heat was rather hot by itself, and as the sun's rays
  10. I wonder what we can see in this limestone with a lot of microorganisms displayed together. Some is obviously coral, but there are more things. The rock is from the Upper Ordovician in the Oslo field in Norway. The size is indicated by the distance between the two blue line being 1 cm. You can enlage the picture a little to see more clearly the smaller things.
  11. Atactotoechus fruticosus (Bryozoa) Kashong member, Moscow formation, Middle Devonian, New York Found 4/09/2021. Size - 6"x 4.2" This turned out better than I thought it would. When I find these bryozoa colonies, I have no idea how complete they are or what they will look like until I start piecing them back together. This colony is missing some pieces but a lot of it was saved from erosion/oblivion. The base of the colony was uneven so I used some modeling clay to help display it in its upright position. The last photo was my attempt to bring the colony

    Substrate?

    There are fossils in the background gray sedimentary, but so much better preserved in brown! Why? Almost like this pile of creatures is on display, a 7 inch blob just laying on top of gray stone. I'm more interested in how these were preserved than what they are.

    bryozoa or brachiopod?

    This is an odd little rock that I found at my son's land in Franklin County today, near Lost Creek (Alabama). I am seeing what I think is an area of bryozoan fossils of some sort on it, but then I saw this tiny little shape that is encased inside of something else. I thought it was a brachiopod at first until I looked up closed with my trusty macro lens and saw teensy dots along the edges. Is this another type of bryozoa? And, if so, why is it encased inside of something? Thanks!! Ramona

    Waccamaw Bryozoan

    A few months back I won an auction from @sixgill pete and part of the lot was a bag of matrix from the Waccamaw Formation in Columbus County North Carolina. The Waccamaw Fm. is a marine sand and shell hash that has been correlated numerous different ways with a varying range of ages applied to it in the past, but as it is currently interpreted, it is Pleistocene in age (Gelasian and Calabrian Stages or Upper Blancan to Irvingtonian if you prefer the NA names) and found in South Carolina and southeastern North Carolina. The bag was chock full of molluscan goodies and I am steadily

    Bryozoan Document Needed

    I am looking for the following document which I can't find online through any of my usual sources (JSTOR, BHL, etc), any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance COOK, P.L. and CHIMONIDES, P.J. (1994), Notes on the family Cupuladriidae (Bryozoa), and on Cupuladria remota sp. n. from the Marquesas Islands. Zoologica Scripta, 23: 251-268.
  16. Hello folks! In Kaliningrad dark and cold time. Even colder on beach. So this last trip report in this season. For first it's search places. This is Svetlogorsk.
  17. I am on a mission to determine if I have different types of fossils in the bottom of our creek bed than I do in the rocks in our yard. This is the first rock I have photographed and I saw a bryozoan fossil I didn't recognize! At least I think it is bryozoan... I have learned not to make assumptions... I recognize the fossils on the right of the photo as fenestellate bryozoans. The portion on the left is what I am not sure about - the honeycomb like part. It has some of the characteristics that I am used to finding in the fenestellate bryozoan fossil rocks, but it also reminds me of the trepos

    The beauty of bryozoa

    I hope this is allowed in the Fossil ID portion of the forum. I have learned so much here that I just want to "give back" for a moment. I am a photographer by trade and I want to share a few photos that show the beauty of bryozoa - trepostome bryozoan fossils in this case (thanks to the help from folks on this forum!) These are not huge and monumental discoveries, but the more I study them, the more I am fascinated by them. The more I learn, the more I NEED to learn. These creatures are beautiful in form, color, and substance. I have no questions in this post - just wanted to say THANKS i
  19. For the Columbus Day weekend my girlfriend planned a three-day trip down to Southwestern Virginia as a birthday present to me. The plan was to do a little sightseeing, go on some hikes, enjoy the fall foliage, and, most importantly, collect some fossils. Unfortunately Hurricane Delta had other plans for us. As the weekend approached it looked like the entire weekend would be soaked with rain. We tried to change our reservations, but we were not allowed to postpone. Not knowing what to expect for the weekend, we made our trip. Sunday was to be my big day of fossil collecting. It was also the da

    Devonian Identification Dilemma

    Recently I have taken interest in fossil hunting after discovering a plethora of fossils from some farmland in Southern Indiana. It is my understanding the fossils are from the Devonian period. My grandsons (5 and 6 years old) and I have collected several specimens I’ve the last couple of months. I have been searching the Internet for weeks trying to correctly identify our finds and just when I think I have something identified —I find other possibilities. I would like to make displays for the grandkids and label our other collections appropriately. I am
