I am studying a tiny area of a fossiliferous limestone rock from our yard and trying to determine the different items in it. The fan shaped item in the lower left corner didn't really look like the fenestella bryozoa that I am used to seeing, so I did a bit of research. I found a page with a similar image and was wondering if I am correct (or even close) in identifying that particular item as a cheilostome? Here is the page I was looking at: https://www.researchgate.net/figure/A-sample-of-bryozoa-sand-sample-number-71-from-a-depth-of-130-m-on-the-Lacepede-Shelf_fig1_238417060. Would the fenestella bryozoa be seen next to the cheilostomes? And what about the little flower like item that is above and to the right of the fan shaped item? It's kind of hard to see - I can circle it if needed. This area covered by this image is approximately 2cm across. That is what caught my eye - how tiny the fan shaped item was. This rock is from Huntsville, AL. Thanks guys and gals!!
