    Need help identifying

    Please help me identify this fossil for my daughter.

    Trilobite ID- Ameura missouriensis?

    Been on a bit of a bug hunt lately. After a lot of effort, I found a layer with trilobites. After some research, it seems the 3 types of trilobite genus available in Pennsylvanian aged rocks around this area are Ameura, Anisopyge, and Ditomopyge. Ameura missouriensis is reported from the Deer Creek Formation and looks like the closest match. I just wanted to get some second opinions and see what others thought as well. Enrolled, but missing cheeks Isolated cephalon

    Shark tooth type?

    Was told this is a tooth of a shark or fish. Any idea what type? It was found in Northwest Missouri.
  4. Please help me identify this item. Found part way up a wooded hill side in northern Missouri.

    Is this petrified wood

    Found this in my grandmas yard, 20 miles south of Springfield MO. If this is petrified wood, how should I properly clean it? Thank you
  6. Hello! My fiancé and I are located in Missouri. We have never found anything like this before and think it might be amber? We did several “at home” tests on it. It passed the acetone and the high percent isopropyl alcohol test. It did not get sticky or tacky. It is very light and we believed it to be a chunk of plastic at first. This is what it looks like under UV light. I can’t tell if it’s glowing or not? Any input is appreciated! Thank you!

    Unidentified 2mm Cladodont Tooth

    From the album: Chondrichthyan Teeth From The Pennsylvanian Period

    Found in the Muncie Creek Phosphatic nodules sadly I do not have the other half, if it is found I will upload it to the comments or post it separately
  8. Location: Missouri Period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola Limestone (Muncie Creek Shale Member) Hello once again! Today I have a fossil tooth that I happened to have seen while going through my old phosphatic nodules from Muncie Creek and was wondering if anyone could identify it further than a Cladodont tooth. I have googled images of Cladodont teeth and believe it to possible be a tooth belonging to Falcatidae, but what do you think? It resembles a few of these teeth on the chart below in size and form, hence why i'm mak
  9. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Found this very small tooth like structure and was wondering if anyone could confirm if it is a tooth or not. Normally I can identify teeth if they are large enough, but this specimen is very small. I have found teeth before in these concretions but much larger such as a possible Symmorium or Glikmanius along with a tooth from a member of Eugeneodontida. Here are some images I edited that might make some details more clea

    Tooth ID

    Found this on a sandbar in Mississippi River near St. Charles Missouri, after the main channel was dredged. Appears to be a tooth but not like a canine type tooth. I was thinking shark tooth, maybe a native american trade piece. Any help would be greatly appreciated in identifying it.
  11. I arrived in Texas yesterday for my mom's funeral. As I drove through Missouri and Oklahoma, I was amazed at the roadside geology (I've never traveled this route before.) I didn't have time to stop on the way here, but I may on my drive back to Michigan. I'm curious as to what to expect to find, if I get the chance to do a little hunting.
  12. discovered this in SW MO in a heavily timbered area buried roughly 10” deep. It measures 9 1/2” in length. If someone has some thoughts of what it could be I would love to hear your ideas.
  13. I recently found what appears to me as a fossil of some sort along the Sag River in Missouri. Was needing help identifying, thanks in advance!

    Central Missouri Palm Wood?

    I was recently given the opportunity to hunt at a place in Central Missouri where the owner said they have been finding Petrified Wood for generations. Once I came across it and begin to study it further, I became curious. I have been told by several geologists and a few seasoned rock hounds, that it is petrified Palm, but I have also been told it was absolutely not and was coral. Would love some advice and explanation if possible. I love to learn and want to be better educated on this material. I have attached some rough and some from the same location that has been tumbled. Thank you a
  15. What do you think? I was digging in a pile of stones that were dumped in a low drainage area behind a business. Consequently I don’t know the origin, but I presume they are from the Missouri region. There were a lot of coral and clam fossils in the pile. The rock pictured has an imprint that looks like some sort of annelid. At first I thought crinoid, but I’ve never seen a crinoid impression like this.
  16. Hey y'all. I dont have the faintest idea what I have here. Im fairly certain its an egg. And Im fairly certain it's a fossil. Im also fairly certain my friend shouldnt have cut it in half. But if he didn't, I wouldn't be fairly certain its an egg, so..c'est al vie. Any insight, thoughts, questions, or direction would be greatly appreciated, as my recent googling of the phrase 'red fossil egg in missouri' turned up nothing related.

    Preserved plant fossil dna ?

    I have been hunting fossils in Missouri where several events have occurred such as thermal events, ocean floor, flood, meteor’s, earthquake, etc:. Because of this it’s left rocks and fossils kind of mixed bastardized specimens. This fossil here seams to be in quartz and retained it’s color that I was wondering if there was a chance that the dna inside was still viable ?

    Fossil Id please

    Found this in a river bed in Branson Missouri. It weighs 1lb 2.3 oz and is about 4”x4”. It caught my eye because it looked like quartz at first. Looks a little different than most pictures of fossilized turtle shells I found on the web. Any thoughts appreciated.
  19. Fossilhunter134

    Is this a piece of coral

    I found this fossil in a creek bed in central Missouri and thought it looked a lot like coral. Just wanted a more experienced fossil hunters expertise on Id. It’s a 14 centimeters long, 5 inches.

    Fossil or rock

    Help us please my son found this in a creek in Missouri and it has porous holes and sticks to tongue like bone but not sure if it’s a fossil or bone. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Missouri Fossil

    Images have the sharpness and definition turned up to hopefully see more detail. I wish I could say the formation but the map I was looking at was particularly large and I just couldn't really tell. All I can say is that all of the possible formations were from the ordovician period. The first rock is 2.54 centimeters wide, and the second is 19.05 centimeters wide. I was thinking that it was a coral maybe? The shape reminds me of brain coral, but I also haven't seen any coral fossils like this one so I don't know. Sorry if the photos are bad, I took them on
  22. I found this yesterday in northwestern part of Missouri near the Grand River. It looks like possibly the bottom part of a reptiles head? I think this is limestone but I'm not positive. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
  23. Hardly anybody ever talks about the Cambrian fossils of the southern midcontinent (USA). They're super-underappreciated. Show us what you've got! Here's one to start us off: Thorax and pygidium of a trilobite, possibly Orygmaspis, typically referred to as "Orygmaspis cf. Orygmaspis llanoensis" but probably a different species altogether. Note the two pairs of macropleural spines marking the final thoracic segments. Davis Formation (late Cambrian: Furongian), south side of Highway 8, St. François County, Missouri.
  24. Anyone help id what this is? A young boy found it at Sunrise Beach, Missouri in the Ozarks.
  25. Echinoderm identification help please! Polished cross-section in the Kimmswick Limestone (Late Ordovician: Katian; Missouri, USA) used as facing stone at Missouri Botanical Garden. Possibly the paracrinoid Implicaticystis (once known as Comarocystites)? Specimen is ~25 mm across.
