Last week my friends and I stopped by Mineral Wells in Texas to do some fossil hunting and it was really fun! However, I'm not familiar with this type of fauna and I was wondering if anybody could help ID them for me.

The first group are bryozoans and they have this really cool texture on them. How easy is it to identify them to genus or species level? The second one on the first row was also really interesting.

Howdy folks, I found this fossil in the West TX Permian Basin near the town on Mertzon in Irion County, USA. It looks to be in a limey fine sandstone (possibly a very poor quality chert) and I found it in a dry riverbed.

I don't like modifying fossils if I don't have to, but I've had multiple fall apart already.
