  1. 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.
  2. Anyone help id what this is? A young boy found it at Sunrise Beach, Missouri in the Ozarks.
  3. 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.

    What in the world is this

    What is this? Found in Raytown, MO.
  5. Grimpuppy

    Fossilized mushroom?

    I recently ordered some decorative stones for my garden when one of them happen to catch my eye. Is this a petrified mushroom it is hard like a rock but has very defined gills.
  6. It wraps all the way around or quite possibly just goes all of the way through? I am not sure but it is pretty! Any help you all have is amazing!
  7. Beautifulxlie

    Unknown fossil?

    I found this while visiting Missouri over Easter. I’m hopping someone could lead me in the right direction to finding out what this could be.
  8. These pictures are all the same rock just different angles for texture and visual show, I haven't found anything else in the rest of the item, just the lump ( which my husband has dubbed.. the klingon mini crater)
  9. Samurai

    Bellerophon gastropod

    From the album: Missouri Ammonoids, Nautiloids and Gastropods

    Found in the Iola formation, not sure which member as it's from a large rockpile (maybe Raytown limestone member?)
  10. This is yet another strange looking rock/bone, from the decorative river rock around my pool. I tried to catch the best parts of the detailed areas, which to me resemble the porous look of a bone. What do ya'll think?
  11. I did find this item on the river bank of the Mississippi river, in a tiny cove right smack between Alton, IL and St. Louis county, MO. No digging required, I was just trolling the embankment. Do you think it is bone? All the photos are the same item, just different angles and close ups.

    Found this while mushroom hunting

    I found this on top of the ground while mushroom hunting. I have collected arrowheads, fossils, and other odd/cool looking rocks for a number of years but have never seen anything like it before. I found it a few miles south east of Calhoun,Missouri close to Henry county road NE 300, and a few yards from Tebo creek. I appreciate any help identifying what it is and approximately how old.
  13. After finding more time to survey my property. I have noticed many rocks with fossils, trying to be careful with the terminology that I am not aware. I have 35 years of finding Indian artifacts; arrowheads, grinding stones, bird points from the area of my hometown. But no experience with fossils at the location that I have recently moved in. Current Location: Eureka, Missouri. Jefferson County. Shelf Rock, halfway up a steep hill in a narrow valley. Rocky Terrain mixed with Clay below the topsoil. I have found layers of shelf rock, with multiple layers of
  14. Hey Folks, went hunting last Saturday with my wife and Granddaughter looking for Trilobites. My wife just killed it with 2 large Isotelus Trilobites and a super rare DOUBLE Isotelus slab! Me??? They don't call me Empty Pockets for nothing! YouTube video here: Prepped pics are at the end of the video.

    What is this?

    I found this in a creek bed in the Ozarks. I have found multiple Ordovician fossils. I was just wondering if anyone has seen something like this or if it is just a weird rock formation.

    Backyard find - I've seen this here before?

    So there is this nifty oddity, I found it in my backyard pool decor rock bed. The first photo is the entire thing. Then i show them separately. I am sorry that I used the penny this time for size, I found my square for the next time.. I saw someone else post a fossil like this one; however, I am a newbie and I have not figured out how to look for other photos yet.

    Help identify please roubidoux formation ?

    Found these in a road cut of old 66 today, my wife and I are regular rock hounds and just getting to know the area

    Nodule #7: Skin impression?

    From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    I believe the dark brown may indeed be skin while the blue part is cartilage.

    Nodule #5: Fish Cartilage

    From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    One of my larger concretions and personal favorites
  20. From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    This concretion came out in multiple parts and I was able to salvage the tip. I will restore this specimen and prep it in the future!
  21. From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    The second half of the cartilage pterygiophores When breaking the concretion most of the internal structure was unfortunately damaged
  22. Samurai

    Nodule #6: Fish material

    From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    My best guess is fish material or crustacean material
  23. Samurai

    Nodule #4: Unidentified

    From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    I assume this is some sort of bone either from a fish or some sort of other specimen. It could be a spine of some sort but I am extremely doubtful
