  1. Location: Missouri Period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola Limestone (Muncie Creek Shale Member or Raytown limestone member) Hello! I happened to take a trip to my usual fossil hunting spots in search of another tooth that was stuck in a rock I planned to dig out but found this delicate one before it and took it home. Sadly this was missing most of its pieces but I thought it could be identified. I couldn't really think of anything it most resembles as it does not look like my Campodus teeth or Petalodus teeth. That's mostly why I posted it here but it very well coul
  2. Location: Missouri Period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola Limestone (Muncie Creek Shale Member) Hello! I have happened to come across a strange structure while attempting to retrieve a fossil from a limestone rock. While breaking the stone around this nodule the force was enough to separate 2/3rds of the fossil leaving the other section still in a massive slab of limestone that will need more time to dig out Nevertheless here is the structure in question Rotated: 1 of the 2 pieces I was abl
  3. Location: Missouri Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Time Period: Pennsylvanian I have found many things in the phosphatic nodules from the Muncie Creek Shale formation ranging from scales, bones, coprolites and in some cases braincases or skull material however I have found very little of braincases and I was curious if someone could identify what they either belong to or in case of specimen #1 if it is indeed a braincase I was also wondering if someone could possibly link me to some material relating to Pennsylvanian period braincases as It

  6. hello! I went fossil hunting a few hours ago and while doing so I came across a phosphatic nodule that was naturally opened most likely due to freeze thawing Formation: Muncie Creek Shale nevertheless I was wondering if someone could confirm if this is a Campodus sp. tooth as I am assuming it is since it resembles my other Campodus teeth and also wanted to see if anyone can help me remove the the mud from this tooth without damaging the fossil inside by giving advice/Tips I do not have any prep tools Without further delay h

    Concretion #23: Fish Braincase (11 mm)

    From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    I contacted someone who I had sent my prior braincase too and they have been busy since the pandemic started hence it stays in my collection till im either contacted again or if someone else does other half: Other pictures:
  8. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I have found fish coprolites before but I am not sure what this is as I am not an expert in coprolite identification. It is possible its something else entirely or simply nothing. https://postimg.cc/svXtnbQT https://postimg.cc/MnfgwRYR https://postimg.cc/2q4JbDMS https://postimg.cc/dZ0SxT1h

    From time to time you can find these little guys in these phosphate concretions as well as some pretty cool stuff
  11. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Hello! I have opened this structure a long time ago and I always wondered what it could be since it seemed like bone. I have other small sized bony structures, most that I assume are coprolites of some sort and I would love to know what this is!

  12. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Hello! I found this quite some time ago and did not know what sort of fish material it could be. I am fairly certain it's something fishy as I have found plenty of chondrichthyan teeth, body parts, bones and a few fish coprolites during my nodule cracking adventures.

    Fish Spine Fossil? ( Missouri )

    Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I was cracking Phosphatic concretions and this baby popped out! I was excited and thought I should share and ask what it is! I believe it is a cartilaginous fish spine, but I have little knowledge in such topics. Ps Information on good glue to glue together the cracked piece is welcomed!
  16. From the album: Muncie Creek Shale Phosphatic Nodules

    I previously posted this onto fossil Id and unfortunately no one could come up with a good identification but I was told there were some skull fragments in this piece from the user Jdp Any Ids are Very much welcomed I suspect this is fish coprolite or fish regurgitation
  17. Hello! this is one of my weirdest things I have found at this location, I believe it might be a fragment from a fin spine? A piece from an Echinoid? Something else? I would love to know what it is and what species this came from! Some information on the area: Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Most likely from a member of the Iola Limestone What makes this one of the most bizarre fossils I have found is the circular pattern on the fossil itself, as I have not seen anything like this in the area before.
  18. Hello! I was recently opening my Muncie Creek Shale nodules and this beautiful collection of scales and bone fragments came out! I believe it is fish regurgitation. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale the middle scale is roughly 9mm long! other half of the concretion Outer view of the Concretion and size reference Images in their natural size (not compressed) https://imgur.com/a/pWKw9Vk
  19. Hello! I found these beautiful scales inside a calcium phosphate nodule from Muncie Creek Shale. I believe this fish regurgitation might have some identifiable scales and I would love to know if anyone can nail down an exact species! Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale The center scale is roughly 9mm long! Concretion with Size reference other half of the concretion other half rotated More images and in their natural size (Not compressed) https://imgur.com/a
  20. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie creek shale Hello! I was hunting in one of my favorite spots and saw a very weird structure coming out of a Muncie Creek Shale nodule and what I think it could possibly be is a piece of crustacean exoskeleton! If I'm lucky that is! I am not exactly sure why I know its different but it does not look like crushed shells from other brachiopods in the area and looks to be layered horizontally. My personal theories: Weirdly preserved Brachiopod, Crustacean Exoske
  21. Hello! I have been cracking open a few more concretions from Muncie Creek and I cracked open this bizarre fossil! I know braincases have been found in these nodules since I have found a braincase of Lawrenciella, and donated a braincase that was found to have parts of the upper jaw! My main reasoning for asking if this is a braincase is that it has a few bizarre structures I have not seen in other concretion fossils. The chance that it is an ordinary bone is very much a possibility. on the left you can see that there are these repeating structures Here is a m
  22. Hello! I was cracking open some more phosphate nodules from the Muncie creek shale formation and had these stored in my room for a while! I was wondering if anyone could identify these very hard to determine fossils as I cannot tell if they contain bone fragments or if the fossils are from a coprolite! I think the one on the bottom right could be a either bone or coprolitic material More images of the specimen on the left which I believe is either fish excitement or fish vomit, I am unsure as I have found similar fossils to this inside some other nodules.
