    Southern Wisconsin Lake Michigan fossils

    Does anyone have an ID for these?I think the first may be a bryozoan?

    Coalified wood?

    Found this larger chunk of rock (too hard to be modern charcoal) while sifting for microfossils. It has a metallic look to it and is fairly brittle. It was found on bradford beach on Lake Michigan and was likely eroded out of the mid Devonian Milwaukee formation which is known for its coalified trees and giant fungi. this looks like a lot of coalified wood I’ve seen pictures of, but I’m pretty new when it comes to plant fossils so this might just be mineral. Thanks!

    Devonian worm burrows or organ pipe coral?

    Found two of these fossils now. Both on beaches that are probably Devonian in age. One is from SW Wisconsin on Lake Michigan and the other is in the Lower peninsula of Michigan from the shores of Lake Huron. Organ pipe coral or some sort of burrow trace fossil? Thanks!

    ID Assistance

    Hi! Just wanting to see if I can get any IDs on my recent finds from Lake Michigan. Thanks for any help. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
  5. I've had these fossils for years now, but I never could figure out what they exactly were. The first image is of what looks like a fern and the second I'm not sure of (both found on the Lake Michigan shoreline in Illinois). The 4 following pictures are of 2 fossils found on the Ohio River near Louisville, Kentucky on the Indiana side of the river. One looks very clam like, while the other looks more like what I am assuming is a crinoid? I can make out a small stem and small circular patterns on the opposing end. The last 2 pictures I am the most unsure of. It looks similar to the

    Crinoids, packstone, brachyzoans?

    Found these while having a stroll on the beach on the southwestern tip of lake Michigan, in Illinois just south of the Wisconsin border. I am about as novice as you can get, and found this site while trying to figure out what these are... I'm pretty confident that the rings are crinoid stems, unsure about everything else. Hope the pictures are good enough, hard to photograph small things with a phone camera. Mostly curious about the spike shape on this one The smaller one here is the backside of the one above I don't know if these two are fossils, they look

    Vertebrae fossil Door County, WI

    My son found, what looks to us to be, a backbone in the rock, in the shallow water of a beach in Door County, WI. The first picture is the fossil in question, the others are other things we found interesting but less convinced they are fossils. I would estimate it to be about 15 to 18 inches in length. Any idea what it could be? Thanks in advance for your time.

    Lake Michigan Fossil

    At first glance, on the beach, I thought this was a pink Petoskey stone / Hexagonaria, but there are no visible bands or gills. Any thoughts?

    Brachiopod

    Last week we took a ride to Lake Michigan to do a short search before the weather turned bad. The previous day had strong winds with large waves and I thought we might find some interesting things. We found plenty of Favosites, Halysites, and Rugose corrals as well as some of the other usual finds. The one unusual find was what I believe to be an internal mold of a Pentamerus oblongus brachiopod. I don't find many brachiopods and as such I'm not 100% sure on my ID. Please confirm or correct. Thanks in advance. Jim

    Weird Thing from Lake Michigan... HELP

    Hello, everyone! This is my first post here (and I actually joined this forum for help with this, though you all seem like a fun bunch and I'd like to stick around). So, I found this thing on a Lake Michigan beach last Thursday (near the Point Betsie Lighthouse). I have never found anything like it, yet it seems so familiar... it's just asymmetrical enough to be throwing my guesses off. It has a little hole and was once hollow, and is now filled with tiny sand-grain-sized crystals. Honestly it reminds me of part of a crab claw, but I have no idea. Please share your knowledge!
  13. Hello! I have been lurking on this Forum for a while because I was very busy lately and still is! I found few fossils and I thought it might be trilobits- pieces of trilobite and also something else that I thought it seems 'fishy' and somewhat resemble a fish spine. These fossils are not found in situ but the bedrocks are Silurian. If they are trilobites, it would be my first time found one! I found this on the beach of Lake Erie, just east of Toledo, Ohio two weeks ago. Approximately half centimeter. Yesterday, I found this fossil on the

    Subsurface Lake Michigan salt deposits

    Looking for information on the subsurface salt deposits under Lake Michigan, between Manistee and Ludington, primarily as to their age. I have some (limited) access to core samples from the wells, and while I've seen some beautiful halite crystals, I've wondered what sorts of fossils I might find. I'm told the cores, taken in 1989, are from ~2500ft. I can't find anymore information than that. Maps and stratigraphic charts for that area are too large of scale, and too generalized. Anyone have information?

    I found this beauty on lake Michigan. But I have no idea what it is, can you help me identify what I found?

    Goniatite in Coldwater Shale

    Hey everyone. I’m looking for more information on Goniatites found in the Mississippian Coldwater Shale. I found this little guy today after cracking open another packstone (second to last photo shows the host stone) I picked up in South Haven, Michigan, along the shores of Lake Michigan. Any insights you could toss my way would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for your time!

    9 Possible Fossils?

    More Lake Michigan - Long Beach, IN finds. #1 - just a rock? #3,5 - horn corals? #4 - favosite? #8,9 - more coral? Sorry about the photo quality/quarter as a size reference. It was the best I could do for now. Thanks for your input

    What's this?

    I found this on the shore of Lake Michigan in Long Beach, Indiana– just south of the Michigan border. I have no clue what I am looking at. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

    Lake Michigan Help Please

    Greetings all! Recently pulled this from south shore Lake Michigan near the Mack Straights. Curious as to what the fossilized material is inside the upper shell half which is approximately 2.5cm across. Any ideas? Bonus points if you can identify the shell too Thank you!

    Newbie Lake Michigan fossils

    Hi everyone, I just got to spend a couple days looking for fossils at Lake Michigan and came across a few that I couldn't identify. In addition to loads of Petroskey stones and Charlevoix stones, I came across the attached rock. Any thoughts on what may have been captured here? The stone is about 4 inches across at the longest (top to bottom in the figure). Location: Charlevoix, Michigan.

    Cephalopod fossil?

    Relevant info first: This was found in Petoskey Michigan while looking for Petoskey stones. It was found in partially buried in sand. It is quite large and rather heavy. As pictured in picture 5, there is some sort of opening at the end? I can't get a very good picture of the inside, it's hard to get light where i need it and take a picture. the hole looks to maybe be about a 1/2 mm deep, and less than that wide. I took to reddit, albeit with less detailed photos and was told it was a straight shelled nautiloid cephalopod from the paleozoic, and that it was a brevicone, which I'm hoping someon

    Lake Michigan Fossil or Not

    Hello again! I received another trade today and was told this was a fossil found at Lake Michigan. I'm not entirely sure it's actually a fossil and I definitely don't know what it is if it does happen to be a fossil. I couldn't capture it with the camera but when I rotate it there are tiny glittery areas on some of the surface.
