    Dudley UK Crinoids ID

    Hello, I wanted to ask for help identifying these crinoid fossils from Dudley of UK. They are all quite small (UK penny is 2cm across) and I think mostly partials. 1. Just a partial calyx I think, the section around the base where the stem attaches 2. I can't really tell if these are three arms or three stems, and if the former they may not be attached to a calyx. 3. 4. Another small partial loose calyx?

    Preparing Crinoids

    Hello fellow fossil fanatics, I recently found some great crinoid fossils, and I was wondering if any of you had recommendations regarding how they would be best prepared. Both fossils are in two pieces, and I bought Krazy glue today to fuse the pieces together. Since I have never done this before, is there any particular technique which allows for the best bonding? Should I separate the pieces, apply the glue, then reattach? Or should I try to have the glue seep into the seam between the pieces without separating them? The rocks both seem to be very full of

    Type of geodized fossil?

    This was found on one of my recent hikes in a creek bed in south-central Indiana (Monroe County). Geodes are very common finds as well as crinoid columnals and horn coral but this is the first find of this type. So I would think it is some type of geodized fossil but would like the experts' opinions. The first 3 photos (taken in natural sunlight) are "side" views and the 4th shows the "bottom". What do you guys think? Thanks in advance for your feedback.
  4. Hi everyone Newbie here from Sussex in the UK I love beachcombing and I am always looking for fossils although I have never found one. But today I found this unusual imprint on a stone on a pebble beach in Bexhil on sea in East Sussex, UK Any ideas what it could be? Thank you so much Tasza
  5. Six weeks ago, I found this crinoid stem with a broken calyx peeking out of the matrix. Today, I used a Dremel to expose more of the stem . As I look at the specimen after cleaning it a bit, I now am wondering if there might be a slight chance of anything substantial hiding in the rock that might be worth a professional prepper going at. Your thoughts will allow me to make a decision. Thanks for any advice. Mike

    Scyphocrinites elegans

    From the album: My collection in progress

    Scyphocrinites elegans Zenker 1883 Location: Boutschrafin, Erfoud, Morocco Age: 420 Mya (Pridoli, Silurian) Measurements: 20x12 cm (plate) Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Echinodermata Subphylum: Crinozoa Class: Crinoidea Subclass: Camerata Order: Monobathrida Family: Scyphocrinitidae
  7. Hi! Looking for help with IDs & also What is this type of fossil called (counter-impression? cast?). Specimen from Crane Hill, Alabama. Thanks for looking Pics 1-plate overview- several potential invertebrates? 2- Potential invertebrate? Some of my newbie guesses: Trilobite (side view) Eurypterid- can’t find definitive info about if locale only had the giant type Crinoid (eg saggital view) Bryzoan Gooseneck barnacle- not sure when these appeared 3- same critter, different angle 4-other invertebrates

    Crinoids, packstone, brachyzoans?

    Found these while having a stroll on the beach on the southwestern tip of lake Michigan, in Illinois just south of the Wisconsin border. I am about as novice as you can get, and found this site while trying to figure out what these are... I'm pretty confident that the rings are crinoid stems, unsure about everything else. Hope the pictures are good enough, hard to photograph small things with a phone camera. Mostly curious about the spike shape on this one The smaller one here is the backside of the one above I don't know if these two are fossils, they look
  9. This past weekend I had to cancel a collecting trip due to ominous weather, so I instead made an impromptu trip to northern Kentucky to do some Ordovician collecting for a couple days. I really love this area and would spend a week down there if I could. This trip I decided to focus on the Kope and Fairview formations, two of the older formations in the greater Cincinnati area. The first day was mostly driving and not much collecting due to rain. But I did briefly stop at a spot where I found a pocket of Ectenocrinus crinoids on my last trip. I checked to see if any more had weathe
  10. FINALLY getting around to posting about my first time ever fossil hunting in Oklahoma! Went on an extended weekend with the Paleontological Society of Austin to a variety of locales in Central OK - places I have heard about, read about and dreamed about going! I finally made it! And it was so very worth the drive, even if I did end up with a stupid cold the last two days (the drive home was a little....weird. Cold "fugue" makes for interesting driving- I really don't remember much of it, which is either good or bad....) But the FOSSILS! I've never hunted the Ordovician and Siluria
  11. Echinoderm identification help please! Polished cross-section in the Kimmswick Limestone (Late Ordovician: Katian; Missouri, USA) used as facing stone at Missouri Botanical Garden. Possibly the paracrinoid Implicaticystis (once known as Comarocystites)? Specimen is ~25 mm across.
  12. My wife and I traveled up to western upstate NY this past weekend for Penn Dixie's annual dig with the experts event. This was our first visit to the park and we were happy to finally use up the tickets we had originally purchased for the 2020 dig. The event was sold out both days and the staff seemed happy to be back in normal operations. The weather was perfect, with bright sunny skies and temps in the 50s to 60s day 1 and 60s to low 70s day 2. Lots of folks digging: We didn't find anything crazy good, but didn't get blanked with a mix o

    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
  14. My grandson sent me photos of his little haul from today on his beach He is nearly 8 and loves checking his local beach. He has compared what he found with photos in his kid’s books of fossils. He’s wondered if these are trilobites and crinoids all- the last 2 photos are the same find. He has been asked to show some of his fossils in a special exhibition in the Laing Art gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne called “These are Our Treasures “ which will coincide with the display of the Lindisfarne Gospels. He feels quite excited by this!

    Waldron Crinoid

    In the little bits of matrix I have from the Waldron Shale of the Illinois Basin of SW Indiana, I have recently found this specimen. I'm fairly sure it's a crinoid, may even be two or three in this piece, a sort of mini mortality plate. Anyone have any idea which genus of crinoid it could be please? A second calyx to the upper right of the first, perhaps? This looks like another calyx, located just under the first but aligned in the same direction :

    Fossil Crinoid?

    Any idea what this specimen is? (US Quarter is 24.26mm or 2.426cm) It was gifted to me, without any location information.

    Interesting stones or maybe fossils?

    I’m really new to fossil identification but my nearly eight year old grandson’s recent passion has sparked my interest and we have been going through some of my beach stone pick ups I’ve always picked up interesting looking (or interesting feeling)stones and what I thought were shells- turns out I have quite a few fossils. The flint photos below were found on Whitstable Beach in Kent England. I joked and called them witches fingers but now I’m wondering… are there crinoids on the surface or just marks. The second stone I can remember one of the grandkids giving to me as it looked li
  18. A couple months ago I found a new spot in the Liberty Formation (Late Ordovician) in southeast Indiana. The Liberty is most famous for the butter shale layer producing thousands of Flexicalymene minuens trilobites, well exposed at the large roadcut near St. Leon. This new site is in the Lower Liberty (below the trilobite shale), which is exposed at St. Leon but is mostly covered by talus and thus difficult to hunt there. I was able to visit this site again last week, and I think it will become a regular spot for me whenever I can travel to the Cincinnati area. Figured I'd share some of my favo
  19. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek, I came across a very nice crinoid stem fossil. Here is a photo:
  20. Hi, this rock was found in a construction site in Bexar county, Texas. I think there are mostly mollusk shells, but I’m also really curious about the little tube things, which I’m guessing might be crinoids? Thank you for your help!
  21. Hi, I have just purchased this Crinoid fossil cluster and I can't make out what the card that came with it says. I was hoping someone could hopefully help? I have it down as saying, Zenacrinus bairdi, Liberty formation, Leaves creek, Ohio, Ordovian period. Thank you (hopefully!)

    Some Kentucky finds.

    I went to a locale in Kentucky I'd heard about and did some hunting for blastoids, which I had never looked for before. After about an hour I came away with a bunch of crinoid pieces, some brachiopods, some random bryozoan pieces, a few horn corals, what may be a gastropod, and a bunch of blastoids of at least two different species. On to the pictures. I also included some random odds-n-ends at the bottom. A pile of fossils. Some of the more interesting crinoids. The three on top have some pyrite encrustation. The four on the bottom are interestin
