Brachiopod? Or USS Enterprise?

From USA, Pennsylvania, Blair County...... Silurian Clinton Group. In profile, this looks conical, with the point down in the sediment rather like a conularid. But viewed from above, it is ROUND.
Hunting the Niagara Escarpment in Hamilton, Ontario
JUAN EMMANUEL posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello guys, Summer is nearing its end so I decided to go and hunt the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario. The exposures I checked out at a creek ranged from the Cataract Group (early Silurian with the Whirlpool formation at its base and it sharply cuts the Queenston formation) all the way to the Clinton Group. Here is a pic of the Manitoulin formation, which is a part of the Cataract Group and is above the Whirlpool sandstone/formation. Above the Manitoulin formation is the mostly shale dominated Cabot Head formation. The Manitoulin and Cabot Head formati
Rochester formation rock with knobby form, could it be anything?
JUAN EMMANUEL posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHello guys, I was out fossil hunting at the Niagara Escarpment of Hamilton, Ontario today and I came across this odd piece of Rochester formation shale (Clinton Group) with a knobby object on it. Could it be anything underneath all that shale or is it just my wishful thinking?? It also got some calcitic bits on the side too.
Lost River, WV Clinton Group Fossils
Megalodoodle posted a topic in Fossil IDHere are some fossils from Lost River, WV. They were found near the Needmore formation roadside quarry. These fossils are not from the Needmore formation, instead they are from the Clinton Group. The Clinton Group, from what I found during my research, is composed of the Keefer and Rose Hill formations.
Location Scouting At Two Hamilton, Ontario Waterfalls
JUAN EMMANUEL posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsYesterday and today I scouted two waterfalls on the Niagara Escarpment in Hamilton, Ontario. I only intended to check on what the winter has eroded away but I ended up finding some small fossils. The first waterfall I visited was the Devil’s Punchbowl. I only visited the lower falls (the one that runs over the Whirlpool Formation) of the Punchbowl as the creek of the fall has yet to dry up from warm weather. I ended up finding some small brachiopods and an orthocone on the Manitoulin Formation of this fall. Wow, I dont think an orthocone has been reported on the Manitoulin Fo
Unknown Pentamerid Brachiopod, Clinton Group
JUAN EMMANUEL posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, can anyone lead me on determining this species of brachiopod? This brachiopod originates from the Reynales Formation, Clinton Group of Hamilton, Ontario from the Niagara Escarpment. A name I found for this shell is Stricklandia canadensis when I was reading a document about the Escarpment, though when I went to the fossiilid.info and the fossilworks websites there is no mention of the species. I began to think this could be a Stricklandia lens. The shell in the centre is approximately 4 cm long.
