    What's left of rugose coral?

    I have zero experience with corals, so just going by pictures I've seen on this guess. This was in creek with Alluvium/ Eagle Ford mix, I spent about an hour prepping it to expose the top and smooth side of what was a mound with vague outline. Hope I didn't screw it up too much!
  2. I grabbed all these samples over the years from the same rock quarry in western New York, which excavates the Middle Devonian Onondaga Formation. I believe most of these are corals, but I was hoping someone could help specify what type of coral so I can organize them a bit better. I resized the pictures with the provided links to lower the quality, hopefully they are not too big still. Appreciate the help. 1. Two different fossils in this cherty material, on left I believe this is Rugose Coral because visible septa, but on the right above the letter "L" in the coin I am not

    Colonial Rugose Coral ID

    This colonial rugose coral was found in Clarksville, TN and was sent to me just a few days ago and i’m not very well versed in Cnidarian classification, any ideas on a species?

    ID backyard fossil

    Back yard find, along w/ other coral types. Clay soil w/ broken limestone, common in San Antonio. The lower portion has a few clear coral-type cells, Opposite end, usually w/ radial pattern in rugosa, is smoothed oval dome. Can't find similar type in variety of fossil sites online.

    Found this in Belgium

    It’s a little bit hard to see but my guess is coral. It has flowery designs with stripes on it
  8. Today I stopped at home to grab something for work and I found a box waiting for me. It was a box that contained the winnings of the recent auction that John @Sacha put up to benefit the forum. I absolutely love everything that was included in this package. John has gotten me into a love of echinoids and Florida coral. I even have gone through my collection of Fossils and picked out all of the other echinoids that I have acquired over the years, and now I’m going to place them all into one area. The fossils that I received from John will always remain in my collection, and I was
  9. Found in WNY (Brocton) on land, in the woods , about 4 miles away from the shoreline of lake erie.

    Fossil or just a weird rock?

    So I found this today not sure if its a fossil or just a weird rock, I can get more pics if needed but I am at a loss ... Thank you in advance
  11. I figured I would share little bit with you guys of some of my favorites out of my collection , the Trilobites I found probably 20 years ago near Grafton Illinois while I was actually geode hunting , The corals ( I'm pretty sure they are corals) were found in Gravois creek in St.Louis ( its chock full of them) .
  12. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Ttoday in the creek I found this rock full of coral fossils. Here is 2 photos:

    Matrix stone with tabulate coral

    The fossils in this stone are probably Thamnopora sp., a tabulate coral common in the Verde Valley of Arizona. Normally it appears in dolomite from the late Devonian (Frasnian), This specimen was picked up way outside the normal range, in an ancient riverbed, where rocks generally come from the Martin and Redwall limestone beds to the west. What's weird (to me) is that this stone matrix is impervious to HCl. No reaction at all, as if it's chalcedony, but it doesn't look or feel like chert or any other chalcedony I'm familiar with. Does anyone have an idea what this stone may be an

    Eocene solitary corals

    Hello guys, As a begginer in the world of fossil hunting, I would appreciate your help with identification of several coral specimens I have found in the eocene era fossil site near the town of Vrgorac, Republic of Croatia. My guess, at least for the first specimen (first 4 photos), is that it represent some kind of Pattalophyllia, whilst for the others I honestly have no idea. Also, the last specimen (last 3 photos), looks like some kind of horn coral, which is weird, considering the fact that they went extinct during Permian and especially because it wa

    fossil id

    Hello looking to identify thi8s coral found in Ottawa, Ontario
  16. Lise found the first blastoid of the year at Arkona, during last weeks spectacular warm spell. She also found the first Petoskey stone, though there was very little of Lake Huron’s shoreline free of snow and ice. I, however, found a stromatoporoid. An interesting piece, from a chunk of armour stone, quarried from somewhere or other. A spectacular ice nugget was also found.
  17. So, springs a happenin and I had two opportunities to float the Kaw river, a shallow, shifting sand bar river meandering through central Kansas to western Missouri where it connects to the Missouri river. My first trip a couple weeks ago focused on the macro pleistocene fossils, a bison ulna, astralagus, phalanges, ribs, metatarsals, busted scapula, calcaneous, and various vertebral bodies , some chert flakes from early hominids, pieces of fossil wood, etc. The
  18. I believe might be a coral or sponge of some sort any ideas? Found around smithville Tennessee
  19. Some fun finds here in Tennessee Devonian /Ordivician area. Just north of Hendersonville TN. Found in creeks, rivers, and streams.
  20. I did my first microfossil sifting on the sandbars of the Kaw river in Kansas (I posted the trip on the forum ). Anywho, I found this microfossil that reminds me of modern day cowrie in pattern but I'm guessing its a coral? The second I am pretty sure is coral, the third is a worn crinoid segment? and the fourth, ummm I don't have a clue- one side has three parallel ridges- thoughts? Appreciate all the help as always!

    Possible fossil coral

    Fossil forum, This is another fossil from the Leighton Fm haul. I was thinking coral, because of the external mold of it, but the internal mold has interesting segments. Unfortunately, the internal mold is missing a piece. Here are some pictures (internal mold on the left, external on the right):

    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:

    100_8991

    From the album: Corals of Decorah Minnesota

    Lichenaria typa Uncommon and is very specialized into encrusting on bryozoan, either rugosa or praespora. Mostly tiny with the center right the largest.
  24. Tetradium

    100_8992

    From the album: Corals of Decorah Minnesota

    Aulopora trentonese Rarely on horn corals or mostly exposed. Seem to prefer bryozoans with bryozoans mostly covering them so if you see abnormal numbers of large pores on bryozoan there's Aulopora on them. Learned that piece of information from similar Devonian corals of Iowa.
  25. Tetradium

    100_8995

    From the album: Corals of Decorah Minnesota

    Unknown coral species. Cant find any information on Ordovician lookalikes. Very small polyps. Top Left is very light and I almost threw it away but notice the tiny coral structures in it. Generally oval in shapes, rarely lobed. Uncommon to rare.
