  2. Hi! I’m still trying to identify one fossil from a particular unit of Pleistocene/Early Holocene lacustrine silt from my hometown of Saskatoon, but I figured I would look away from it for a bit to try and identify another fossil from the same unit I’ve been unable to classify. I have two specimens, both apparently of the same species. They are both approximately 0.5 millimetres across. They are perfectly circular, with lines radiating from the centre and rings of alternating colours (possibly representing growth lines). One specimen is photographed dorsally, showing its circular shape, the ot

  6. I collected this brachiopod showing part of the brachidium yesterday - quite rare to see in this area. It's partially silicified and I was thinking of perhaps etching it out a little further. It's also a good geopetal example, with sediment in the bottom (graded if you look closely), the remaining void above being filled with calcite that has helped preserve the brachidium. On checking my photos, I realised that there were some nice clear foraminifera, about 1mm across, which I haven't really noticed much before from this limestone. These photos are just of the rough surface,
  7. This is my first "new topic" post to the FF, so I hope I'm doing this correctly. If you have a microscope or equivalent and a current or potential interest in micro-fossils, you might enjoy collecting at the following historic locality: Mississippian Salem Limestone, about 5 miles east of Salem, Indiana off Rt. 160; Spergen (Spurgeon) Hill, railroad cut (Manon RR) paralleling S. Harristown Rd, 0.75 mi north of Rt. 160; south end of Trackside Road; approximately 140 meters S of Harristown, Washington Co., Indiana; diminuitive fauna; Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates: 16S 585024.

    Local Railcut

    Went out to a railcut that slices through upper Racine formation. This locality is only 10 minutes from my house. I almost never visit it because of scarcity of fossils, however I was reading a paper that mentioned forams in chert and decided to take another look. Here you can see the beds dipping gently to the east. This is interreef strata. Closeby is/was a huge reef, now filled with garbage. Here is a chert nodule to be sliced up. Also, found a silicified coral and packed in my bag. Disturbed this guys slumber. Silicified Favosites

    Fossil ID- Echinoderm Madreporite?

    I had collected some fossils from Spring Branch, Texas from what I think is the Glen Rose fm near Canyon Lake and I'm wondering what all these little discs are. For some reason I thought they were called foraminifera but in looking on-line, I think that's not accurate. I'm not sure where I heard that these are called foraminifera. Perhaps someone told me that or, more likely, I misremembered something I read somewhere. In looking at Uncle Siphuncle's very, very, very helpful (Thank you. It's a must read!) pinned Comprehensive Guide heading this forum, it seems these little discs are calle

    Fusulinids?

    Found this stone in Dallas area creek, are these fusulinids? They are supposed to be abundant in limestone in Texas, you can faintly see rings in them like a slice of onion.
  12. So I make slides of microfossils from ~ <1mm - 2mm. I use a glue that I make with food grade gum tragacanth and water as was recommended to me when I first started. However, I have always found it a bit annoying to make, get the consistency right and keep properly, especially as I haven't been able to find any definitive guides to this. I'm wondering whether any of you use gum tragacanth as well and have a ratio/recipe/advice for me? Or if anyone has had good success (long lasting, dries clear, secure, fossil safe) with any other type of glue? Thanks!
  13. Upper Campanian foraminifera from Northern Germany. We found in the quarry of Laegerdorf near Hamburg. We think it is a Lituola. What's your opinion ? It is agglutinated and the specimens have such areal, multiple openings. See more of our finds at https://foraminifera.eu/loc.php?locality=Laegerdorf+Neue+Heidestrasse
  14. Hi everyone I think I just found a new hobby With my latest fossil delivery I recieved quite a lot of microfossils & matrix vials as the world of microfossils was something that I have been long interested in. So a 2 weeks ago I finally ordered my first microfossils for which I reserved a special drawer in my archive cabinet. So here is a recapp of what I all got: 3 vials of permian material from Waurika, Oklahoma 1 vial of permian material from The red beds of Archer County, Texas 1 small vial of Conodont rich Mississippian material from the Chappel Limestone fo

    Mystery micro(ish)-fossils

    Hi all, Need some help with this ID! I found this fossil years ago on a beach in eastern North Carolina and it's been a mystery to me since. The best answer I could come up with is that these might be some kind of foraminifera (maybe of the fusulinid variety, though these don't seem to have the tapering at either end), but I'm not sure how to go about researching other possibilities. My camera has a tough time with close-up pics, so this is probably as much resolution as I can get. Thanks in advance for the help!
