  1. Tetradium

    100_9102

    From the album: Bryozoan of Minnesota Ordovician

    Prasopora conoidea - average sizes that makes them noticeable. Sometime in the future I will have to examine closer - but I suspects smaller colonies may exists on harder surfaces than most people thought. From my examinations Prasopora conoidea strongly prefers muddy sediments, as I hadn't found any in carbonate rich rocks. Seem to strongly prefers brachiopods of any sizes as starting point for their colonies though uncommonly occurs on bryozoans as well. Abundant in all layers of Decorah formation.

    100_9100

    From the album: Bryozoan of Minnesota Ordovician

    Prasopora conoidea from Decorah Formation. Those are the largest ones I have found - seemly? (not 100% sure) only in upper Decorah Formation. The middle one is the largest I had found so far.

    St.Leon Bryozoan

    Hello, friends! This bryozoan is tiny, about a mm wide. It seems to be made up of overlapping tubes arranges diagonally across the zooarium. It come from the Southgate Hill road cutting, St. Leon, Indiana and I think is from the Liberty Formation, Cincinnatian, Late Ordovician due to other species found in the same piece of rock. The other species include Xenocrinus baeri, Hebertella occidentalis, Zygospira modesta, Graptodictya perelegans, Bythopora deliculata, Batostoma sp. and Stictopora emacerata. I think. Thank you for looking.

    Unknown fossil

    Fossil forum, I recently found an interesting fossil. I was thinking coral or bryozoan, but was unable to identify it correctly. It is from the Leighton Fm Maine (again), which is Silurian. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of it:

    Strictoporellina cribrosa uncommon Decorah Formation. Least common of the porous frondose types. Pretty solid flat with pores ridden it. No other variability in shapes.

    Some Brachiopod/Bivalves and Coral

    Hello, I have personally collected these far from perfect samples on some hiking trips and from around the field I work in. I have included a Die in each picture that is 2cm³, and have the corresponding number on the die to each specimen/picture. Any help with ID would be cool! Thanks in advance! 1. Stromatolites?

    ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg
  8. I love fossils and I love macro photography! If anyone is interested in having this photo to make a puzzle out of, let me know and I will send you a full res copy of it. This is part of a rock that I found in our backyard in Madison County, Alabama, just a couple of days ago. You could spend a lot of time studying it and finding a wide variety of fossils - mostly bryozoan - so I thought it might make a fun puzzle for these pandemic times. I'm not sure how this works, but I think there is a messaging option here where you could give me your email address so I could send the full resolution pho
  9. I dug this rock up in my back yard today in Madison County, Alabama. I was not surprised to find the typical fenestellate bryozoan fossils that I normally find, but I am puzzled by a couple of things. I will post a some photos to show the bryozoan fossils on the rock and then macro photographs of the parts I have questions about. The pod like structures remind me of some that I found on another rock from TN, but with encrusting bryozoan fossils... The other "thing" looks like some type of stem? Are these structures of the bryozoan colonies? I see one crinoid fossil on here, too, but that
  10. I'm still trying to find an example of a xenomorph for @Rockwood and I ran across this strange scene on my 57 pound rock (yes, we weighed it) from my son's land in Pulaski, TN. I know from what I learned here that the pink part is trepostome bryozoan fossils (I love the coloring, by the way!). It appears to have almost a shell over it, though? And in another place a portion of it is "peeking through" the shell like substance? Is that another type of encrusting bryozoan? If so, would that make this a xenomorph? Thanks! Ramona

    Trip to Big Bay

    The weather is exceptional in southern Ontario, these days. 25 degrees C! That’s 77 degrees Fahrenheit to my US friends and for here in November it is exceptional! We decided it was a great day to go to Big Bay which is situated on Georgian Bay between the Owen Sound and Colpoys Bay a beautiful place down a gravel road; it can be busy in the summer but we knew today it would be quiet. The trip was purposeful because I know it is just full of water washed fossils and I wanted to post pictures of what is there. I wanted to show you all how prolific the Silurian Ocean was. I also included a co

    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
  13. Hi everyone, These unidentified specimens were collected in Union County, Illinois. It's from Mississippian strata, likely the Ste. Genevieve Limestone or St. Louis Limestone. I haven't been able to track down a proper map of this quadrangle yet. The smaller specimens resemble mound bryozoa like Prasopora and the cups of all of them display concentric layers like related bryozoans. There aren't any pores visible so I've been thinking about bisecting one of the smaller specimens to see if any radiating zooecia are visible. What does everyone else think? Does
  14. I had a chance to look for rocks in a new location today and WOO HOO, I found a huge rock that should keep me busy for a while! This baby is filled with tons of interesting things! I am going to start with just a couple of questions that I THINK I may know the answers to. Are these samples of a type of Fenestrate Bryozoan fossil? If not, maybe coral of some type? These were found at the base of a small mountain/hill in Pulaski, TN, where no fossil hunting has been done (yet!). If these are a type of Fenestrate Bryozoan, it looks like they have more of the structure intact than I am used to
  15. I hope, hope, hope that I don't wear out my welcome by asking questions about rocks with Fenestellan Bryozoan fossils in them! That's about all I got around here, but I do get other items IN those rocks that I don't recognize, like this one. Thanks so much to those guys who take the time to read and answer my questions - over and over again, LOL! This is yet another rock that I found in my yard and it is filled with what looks like layers of a variety of fenestellan bryozoan fossils? I have included a photo that shows what I am talking about, so please correct me if I am wrong! There

    Fenestrate bryozoan prep

    Hello all! I found this pretty cool bryozoan back in July and I decided to give it a prep. Its really easy matrix to work with so its good practice for someone like me who’s only done a handful of preps. Like my past preparations, this will all be done manually using mainly safety pins. Fenestella sp. ? Middle Devonian Hamilton Group Moscow Formation Windom Shale DSR, Lebanon, NY Enjoy!

    Coral or bryozoan?

    I found this stone with several circles and some pattern. Could it be a coral or is it a bryozoan? Seems too small for bryozoan. Anybody can help identify it? Size of diameter about 3cm. Late Ordovician.

    strange little curved rock

    I think the curved part of this rock is probably just a coincidence, but since I have never seen anything like it before, I thought I would check. Like a lot of other rocks I find, it seems to have a layer of limestone fenestellan bryozoan fossils encrusted around it (that's about the only way I know to describe it) and lots of tiny impression fossils on the inside of the rock. Can anyone help me figure out the rock's story? What might have caused the curved and layered appearance? Is that just a coincidence? Or is this a particular "thing"? Found in Madison County, Alabama. I will post
  19. I am learning to pick apart the items I find in the limestone fossiliferous rocks from my yard, but I see some things here that I am not familiar with. What is the tubular item at the bottom of the photo? And what are the tiny round black things? They look like poop, LOL! One of them is inside of a crinoid fossil, but it may have fallen there? This was found in Madison County, Alabama. I find fossiliferous limestone mostly with fenestellan bryzoan fossils, crinoids, coral, etc. Thanks! Ramona

    Bryozoan and Horn coral IDs

    Hello everyone, This will be my final ID topic for a while as I am trying to get some labels for a few fossils in my collection. Here are two fossils of marine animals, the first I believe is a bryozoan, I have no idea of the location or age of either but this piece has a strong resemblance to the devonian Fistuliramus and Eridotrypella from Morocco. The second is a very white and chalky horn coral, I am guessing that it is from somewhere in the US as the person I got it from mostly has US fossils. Does anyone recognize the fossilization on this piece? I am trying to identify wh
  21. Found this in our yard in Madison County, AL. We have tons of Fenestellan Bryzoan fossils, crinoids, etc (as you can see in this rock, also). Is this embedded fossil object a more complete bryozoan fossil? It looks like it would easily fall out, but I don't want to mess with it. This is a macro photo - the embedded object is about 3/4 inches long. Thanks! Ramona
  22. I went up to the UP this week doing mostly sightseeing with my friends. They were aware of my predilection for rockhounding so we often made stops to areas that might bear good fossils/agates. In particular I knew there were some 'lagerstatten' in the Stonington Peninsula region of the UP. The most important formation I know of is the 'Big Hill formation' (correct me if I'm wrong). Some links about it here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/308005515_A_new_Lagerstatte_from_the_Late_Ordovician_Big_Hill_Formation_Upper_Peninsula_Michigan https://www.ncbi.

    Helderberg Group Fossils

    A few years ago I collected with the NYPS at a quarry exposing some Helderberg Group limestone. I failed to label some of my finds. I have a best guess on the trilobites but I was hoping to get some confirmation. I have struggled identifying a few of the brachiopods and a bryozoan and I could use some help with those. Any help is greatly appreciated. #1 - some type of bryozoan but I am not sure which one #2- ??? #3- ??? #4- Paciphacops logani? #5- Odontocephalus sp.?
  25. Hi everyone! I found this piece yesterday at my new spot along Etobicoke Creek here in Mississauga, Ontario (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician). It's a bryozoan of some sort with some crinoid stems on it, along with an imprint that I think is either a Cruziana ichnofossil or a weathered crinoid stem imprint - what do you all think? I've boxed the imprint in red. Thanks in advance! Monica Views of the imprint: View of the other side of the rock/bryozoan: Close-up of the bryozoan:
