    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

    Crinoid? Cephalopod? Other marine life?

    Hello all, and thanks for being here! I am looking for an ID on these fossils for my own gratification! My focus is in archaeology, so I come across fossils often during surface collection adventures! A little about the location: These were found in Nancy, Kentucky, USA on a partially man made flood-control lake called Lake Cumberland (Cumberland river basin/Cumberland plateau). The banks are rich with small to medium chert concretions, fossiliferous sedimentary stones, and small to medium iron inclusions. Preservation of these specimens are, generally, fair to good.
  3. Found along the shore of the North Channel at Little Current on Manitoulin Island. Any chance this can be ID'd more specifically? I
  4. Here is a E. rana fossil I found at Penn Dixie the year after I started collected fossils in 2015. It shows clear evidence of having been partly crushed by a horn coral on pleurites 5 through 10 only on the right side. The curvature of the thorax elements support this interpretation as well as demonstrate remarkable flexibility. This is a specific event that must have taken place shortly before, during or after the demise of the trilobite, while it was still malleable to be so contorted. Pardon the poor prep, I used a sewing pin in a pin-vise to clear away matrix. All images are the same speci
  5. I had the opportunity to visit another Silurian site in the northern Georgia/southern Tennessee area. This is now the third such site I've visited, but the first in the Rockwood Formation as opposed to the Red Mountain Formation. As far as I can tell there's very little different between the two lithologically and paleontologically, with the Rockwood and Red Mountain occupying pretty much the same stratigraphic position. The difference seems to be that the TGS prefers to use the term "Rockwood" to describe it's Niagaran Silurian system and the GGS and AGS prefer the term "Red Mountain", mostly

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    For now I'm just generally identify as Homalophyllum. And some people said they have trouble finding horn corals but for some reason as this massive pile shows, they're easy for me! SW corner are some largest and smaller specimens. The larger ones are easier to find and thus are the rarer while one inches and less seem to be the hardest for people to find.

    Payson Arizona corals

    Some more fossils that I acquired from fellow members of the local rockhound club, a couple who spend their Winters down there (except this past Covid year). I've got the location info but not the accurate stratigraphic info nor IDs. These are from two different locations in the Payson area. According to the maps in Gem Trails of Arizona (which the couple used to find the sites), the horn corals are from a spot along a road on the way to 'Agate Mountain', and the colonial types are from Houston Mesa, "right at the top of the hill". I don't know if the two locations are the same formation, or..

    Horn Coral Cross Section?

    Since this large rock is filled with Bryozoan fossils, I went off in a search to study Bryozoans. I ended up back on this group, reading a post where Rockwood identified a photo as a Horn Coral cross section, and it looked very similar to what I have, LOL! So, I am sticking my neck out there and asking if this might be a cross section of Horn Coral? This is an edge of the large rock, so you are seeing two sides of it. (first shots are looking at it from the side, third photo is looking down from the top) I have photographed it from many angles and have studied it a lot. There seem to be s

    The Day of The Echinoderm

    Firstly, a big THANK YOU to @Jeffrey P for hanging out with me for the day! What a knowledgeable, generous, and all around swell guy! If you ever get the opportunity to hunt with Jeff, I highly encourage you to. Jeff and I met at around 8:30 am, and after a quick transfer of his gear to my truck, we were off. We first drove about 45 minutes south to the small town of Wax, to hunt the Upper Mississippian. Specifically to look for blastoids and crinoid calyxes that were known to be found in the area. As it happens, luck was with us! Unfortunately, I didn't take the fiel

    Bryozoan and Horn coral IDs

    Hello everyone, This will be my final ID topic for a while as I am trying to get some labels for a few fossils in my collection. Here are two fossils of marine animals, the first I believe is a bryozoan, I have no idea of the location or age of either but this piece has a strong resemblance to the devonian Fistuliramus and Eridotrypella from Morocco. The second is a very white and chalky horn coral, I am guessing that it is from somewhere in the US as the person I got it from mostly has US fossils. Does anyone recognize the fossilization on this piece? I am trying to identify wh

    Help ID this for my 7 year old?

    Hi everyone! My son found this at the Gardiner boat ramp beach (a very rocky beach) near Sequim, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula. From a quick google search he thinks it might be horn coral. What do you think? And can he sell it for $799.99 and earn enough money to buy the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon? Whole rock is about 70mm across. Please let me know if you have any other questions that would help you hazard a guess. Thank you so much! Beth Stucky
  18. More fun fossils from rocks brought into Oakville.

    Walk near a shopping mall

    Went for a walk in a non-fossil area but got distracted by rocks under a bridge. Lots of unfamiliar corals were there! I figured out which types of rocks were most prolific and started hunting. I think I found the rear portion of a trilobite and a big chunk of a partially intact horn coral. I suppose these are Devonian or Silurian, brought in from elsewhere. I can't really recognize many of the shapes.

    Tooth vs Horn Coral

    Hello. I'm a new member and wondering if anyone can help me identify this item. From my research, I believe it's a tooth vs horn coral, but I've had very little luck identifying otherwise. I discovered this a few days ago in a creek bed in southwestern Ohio. It measures about an inch (or 2.5 cm). In profile, on the backside is a pretty pronounced barb toward the tip. Any ideas??

    Horn coral revisited

    Good morning all! Well, I couldn't find my Unklesbay fossils of MIssouri, so bought another on online. In it, the object I thought was a horn coral ( I posted this earlier) looks pretty similar to what he depicts as Cystophyllum. Thoughts? Does this seem more reasonable? Thanks! Bone
  22. Back in April 2017 I posted pics of what I thought was a unique bryozoan encrusted horn coral.... Since then I have come across more while collecting in SW Ohio that I'd like to share. And, yes, the prep can be extensive. The first one, there is no real top/bottom or side view. It is 7 cm across x 10 cm "tall" This one is 4.5 cm across x 4.5 cm "tall". I believe the bryozoan on the following is Constellaria florida This one is 5.5 cm across and 6 cm "tall" This last one is my favorite. I finished prepping it in early March
