While organizing today, I came across this Composita I collected a while ago in the Pennsylvanian of Illinois. I noticed it had something encrusting it, which was surprising since brachs from this site never seem to have any encrusting organisms. Whatever it is, it is not preserved super well, but it almost looks like a tiny productid brachiopod? Never seen anything like it. Any thoughts? @Tidgy's Dad
From the album: Fossildude's Middle Devonian Hamilton Group FossilsBrevicoceras casteri, with an example of Hederella filiformis. According to their 2008 paper, "Morphologies and Affinities of Hederelloid "Bryozoans" ", Paul D. Taylor and Mark A. Wilson "... interpret hederelloids as colonial, phoronid-like invertebrates, with retractable lophophores." Thanks to Scott (piranha) for the paper listed above. Middle Devonian, Moscow Formation, Hamilton Group. Deep Springs Road, Lebanon, NY. Generously gifted to my by Darktooth (Dave)
