  24. I thought I would share an exciting Mazon Creek fossil that I collected on March 1st of this year and just split open today. This is an extremely rare legless amphibian named Phlegethontia longissima from Pit 11. For a Mazon Creek fossil collector, this is about as good as it gets. Amphibians are extremely rare in the deposit and most collectors never find one. I have been collecting these fossils for over thirty years and can finally check it off my bucket list. It has been estimated that only one in five hundred thousand Mazon concretions will contain an amphibian. It needs a bit more cleaning and is fairly complete. The ribs, teeth and skin impressions are clear under magnification.
  25. Mazon Creek Identification Challenge

    Hello Fossil Forum friends. It has been quite a while since I posted on the forum and decided to share a find that I recently collected. This specimen was found March 1st 2017 and after three freeze thaw cycles split open last week. Unfortunately the other half shattered into several pieces. I already know what the fossil is and thought it would be a fun challenge for forum members to test out their Mazon Creek identification skills. When I first glanced at it, I thought it was a bit of plant material and almost disgarded it. I will give one hint and state that it is an animal and was collected at Pit 11 which preserves many unusual marine fossils. The concretion measures approximately 2" across. I look forward to hearing members opinions.
