I realize this is modern, but I thought it was unique enough to share. While ostracods are pretty common in this matrix, this is the first time I've seen one like this. It's not my area of expertise, but this one looks conjoined.
GeschWhat posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI decided to take a break from coprolites and scan through some of Sacha's Merritt Island Matrix. One thing I see a lot are these vine-shaped traces on many of the shells in the matrix. Does anyone know the trace maker? Secondly, I came across this spiky thing. It looks modern. Is it an echinoid spine of some sort? Thanks for looking!
What is the tiny pinecone shaped thing attached to this bit of matrix? It is rock hard and very firmly attached It is too small to get any detail with my camera. The first picture is the best I could do. I used a usb microscope to try to see more detail in the second set of pictures.
