Is this one a piece of some fossil creature?
augustus posted a topic in Fossil IDToday, I found one small piece of fossil-like thing in a sandstone rock. I found it in a valley, where there is one small river with rocks which contain many brachiopods, coral, favosites fossils. But this one is different, it is in one piece of soft sandstone rock, others are in harder rocks. Western boarder of the great basin of Sichuan, China. petal_20221129_222903.mp4
London Ontario Favosite?
amaanthawer posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, I found this fossil along the Thames River in London Ontario. The area I'm in is part of the Dundee Formation which is Devonian. Can anyone identify/confirm if this is a Favosite coral? Thank you!
A nice favosite but I'm not entirely sure what the other one is if anyone could help me out
MeAmLikeRocks posted a topic in Fossil IDI got this at a beach in petoskey same as my last post and I'm fairly certain these are two corals, a favosite and one other that I'm not sure of.
Is this a kind of favosite? (Georgian Bay Formation, Ontario)

Help needed to ID corals
PaleoOrdo posted a topic in Fossil IDI would like to start present some of my coral finds, or what I believe are corals. The first are from Tyrifjord lake area in Norway, I am uncertain of the formation, but I believe it is Ordovician of age. Although one paleontologist told me that the area has Silurian sandstones of Early Silurian age, a geological map I found also includes some Ordovician outcrops. These I presume are favosite corals. Is it possible ID their order, genus or species? Their sizes are about 10-12 cm long. I am not sure these are sandstones or limestones. First rock: Second rock:
Another Fossil ID
moodorf posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this today. I think it's a really weathered tabulate coral fossil, but what I'm curious about is, I've never found one so weathered that the top of the tabulae are not visible anymore/gone. the fossil in the back is the most weathered coral fossil I've found thus far, and even that one has the open ends of the tabula still intact/identifiable. Also weird is, that brown-ish part of the rock has something sparkling in it. like, little lines? It's weird, I've never seen lines on a rock quite like this. I'm assuming the brown is iron oxide

Favosite coral structures?
DawnOfADream posted a topic in Fossil IDHello everyone! Today I finally received a fish mortality plate (Pic 1) I had bid on a long time ago. Oddly though it turns out I had bid on multiple items and found this block of what appears to be fossil shells with coral structures at the bottom. After some googling I think it might be favosite? Any help is appreciated as I know little about fossil shells and corals. Unfortunately the providence is unknown, as no information was provided. Pic 1- Leptolepsis fish plate. Something appears to have been applied to the specimen and gone terribly wrong. If anyone has any adv

Big Favosite Coral with a Suprise
minnbuckeye posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsLast Autumn, I found a large favosite coral embedded in quite a bit of matrix. It measured 24cm by 13 cm, which is large for the location it was found in. It was only a coral, but I put quite a few hours into prepping this piece. Finally done!!!!
Is this a favosite?
copacetic posted a topic in Fossil IDI honestly can't say where this fossil came from. As a natural collector of many different things, there are lots of odd items in my house. Since my 7 year old has some interest in fossils and rocks, I've gathered up what I had and put it with her playground finds. In trying to ID our finds, I assumed this was a favosite, but it's not exactly like most pictured on the internet. The tabulae (? the divisions in each tube) aren't very evenly spaced, nor are they flat. The first view seems to show unusual little compartments with tiny openings, but I think the wearing of the fossil is

Eastonian posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this fossil imprint (that's probably not the right terminology) on a rock last month in northern Michigan. It measures 2" x 2", and in places there seems to be a honeycomb pattern. What's with the tubular piece?
