    No clue on this one!

    Hey all! Sorry if the information provided isn’t sufficient, but I’m new here. I’m a wildlife biologist and I do a lot of surveying for snakes in rocky areas. A good friend of mine directed me here to help with a fossil ID, as I come across a lot of interesting fossils in the rocks I turn over and the road cuts I search. Attached is a photo of a fossil imprint in a dolomite outcrop. This would be western St Louis County. If more information is required, please don’t hesitate to ask. thanks!
  2. Hi all, I found this fossil in a creek near St. Louis. Any ideas?

    Fossil ID help

    Found this lying on the side of a ridge in a forest in Wildwood, MO. Any ideas on what it could be?

    Fossilized heart?

    Found in NORTH CENTRAL MISSOURI, USA My mom and my nephew found this "rock" a few years ago. I was telling my mom about this group, she asked me to post this here. She's wondered for years if it could potentially be a Petrified heart, it has what appears to be valves on it. She doesn't know who she would contact to find out if it is a Petrified heart, so if anyone knows who to contact about this, we'd appreciate it. It weighs 1.92lbs. Thought you guys would think it was cool.
  5. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Hello! I happened to come across one odd fossil that I could not recognize Some close ups on the leaves The only thing I could certainly determine it is some sort of Fern but beyond that I am unfamiliar of what species it could belong to My next specimen is a Fern leaf of some sort but due to its poor preservation is hard for me to determine what it is from, any Ideas?
  6. From the album: Missouri Plant Fossils

    If I ever get a microscope ill see if I can post some close ups

    Partial Trilobite?

    I have no information about the origin of this fossil, except to say that it came from a large bag of pea pebbles purchased at a big box store in the St. Charles, Missouri area. The raised ridge in the center made me wonder if it's a trilobite. There's also an interesting "shift" about midway down the ridge that creates an offset of sorts. Maybe that's the result of settling over time? It measures about 0.75 inch long, as shown in one of the photos.
  12. Found in creek in Silex, MO. I find many formations like this around the area. Fossil or geological? Each hole is about 2cm in diameter.
  13. We've been finding these oddball puffy stars in the Late Ordovician (Sandbian) of eastern Missouri (Illinois Basin), in the uppermost part of the Plattin Group (a Platteville equivalent) or possibly the lowermost part of the Decorah Group (Katian). We've been finding a lot of weird fossils in that zone, including articulated cyclocystoids, but these I'm at a loss on. They seem to be calcite and preserve in the same texture and color as other echinoderm material in the same rock. They vary in convexity and in the presence of a central hump or divot, but there never seems to be a lumen that goes
  14. I had some spare time this past weekend, and a fossil hunt sounded nice. Bad weather had made that impossible the previous month. The weather was great out finally, so I went out Sunday (3/7/2021) to good old Truman Lake to look for Burlington Formation crinoids. I mainly just wanted to find and keep nicer, intact crinoids that day. It's a good walk to the crinoid hunting grounds from my car, and there is fossiliferous chert material along the way. I decided to split one chunk of chert, which contained only one single platyceras gastropod steinkern. After finishing work on it, I hi

    Missouri Ozarks fossil

    I found this fossil today in the Missouri Ozarks - we find fossils from the Mississippian period here. It is small: for scale I could probably just fit the tip of my pinky in it. We have lots of brachiopods, bryozoans and crinoid fossils around here but I have never seen this sort of interlocking "spine" (I know its not a spine). Does anybody know what this is a part of?

    Smithville Snails

    I found this rock today in my favorite spot in southeast Missouri. I guess they are Smithville variety. There are several fossils in this rock. That spiral looking one is 4" long!
  17. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola limestone formation Subformation: Muncie Creek Shale Member Hello and happy valentines day ! I was re-examining my old collection of Muncie creek shale nodules and found these peculiar specimens Originally I posted an image of one of my larger heart shaped fossils in my member's albumwhere someone mentioned it could be some sort of bellerophontid gastropod but now that I found a second more complete specimen I think it was time to ask fossil ID to get more eyes and possible identifi

    Campodus Sp. Tooth

    From the album: Chondrichthyan Teeth From The Pennsylvanian Period

    One of my favorites as it has a variety of color, from dark blue to orange and a pale yellowish white
  19. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola limestone formation-) Raytown limestone Member I am certain this tooth belongs to some form of fish belonging to Eugeneodontida but I was unable to knock it down beyond that. From the area I have found various teeth from Petalodus, Deltodus, some from Orodus and a few others I however have no real id on this tooth as I plan to add it to my album as a refrence for the future if I find similar teeth like this one. Length of specimen is 16 mm
  20. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Rockpile containing rocks from the Iola Limestone Formation Hello! I came across this specimen in the dirt surrounding a rockpile where I usually hunt for muncie creek phosphatic nodules and was wondering if anyone could help me get an exact ID on this specimen. I have found one tooth similar to this last year that I had assumed belong to Orodus. backside of this tooth I will note it has similarities to another tooth I have that might belong
  21. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I have been going through some old nodules I had collected from when I first found an area full of these nodules. I happened to find this and was unsure of what it was due to how it was sort of "Shiny" for lack of a better term. I also have some other different phosphatic nodules with similar features and would love to post them here if anyone is interested. I ultimately wish to have some sort of identification for these materials. Some sort of inclusion in thi
