    Unknown nodules

    I found a large area with a layer of nodules and broke open a couple hundred. I know what the denticles are and I think the teeth are campodus but everything else is unknown. Any id's are appreciated thanks

    What are these, eggs?

    I found these while digging in red clay on the banks of the crooked creek that runs primarily through bollinger county. In the same location that I have been finding many smithville snail fossils. They are egg shaped and fairly brittle. All were in the same spot in the clay. Can anyone help me identify them. Are they fossils, if so what?

    Nodules in Redwall Limestone, Central AZ

    The photo shows several nodules embedded in Redwall Limestone (Mississippian) along highway 89a west of Jerome, Arizona. Also in this layer are crinoids, brachiopods and solitary rugose corals. I think I've read about these in the dim, dusty past, and I seem to recall that they are not fossils, but some other geological phenomenon. Any help?
  4. I recently found several fossil plant impressions inside nodules from Indiana coal mine spoil dumps. It is Pennsylvanian age approximately 300 mya. Please help identify the specimens to genus, and species if possible. Thanks!

  8. These are some of my favourite Horseshoe crabs i have collected from the two opencasts in Derbyshire UK.that i have hunted in over the years. (some are in negative form) they range in size from 10mm to 40mm. Thank- you for looking at many years and hours of collecting. John

    Greenland Fish Nodules

    Just got in some nodules from Greenland courtesy of our good friend @holdinghistory. Never dealt with these before. Do I freeze/thaw these? What would be the best course of action for opening these little fishies up?

    Pit spoil

    Went looking on a old pit spoil that is slowly giving up it's nodules,the site is in the British coal measures of Derbyshire as with Mazon Creek it is well overgrown but the nodules here are not easy to find ....Yet! These are 2 nodules from the spoil that i'm sure will one day give up it's treasures. Asterophyllites sp Lycopsids Cheers John
  12. I just went to the Floyd county Conasauga at a roadside site mentioned in https://www.researchgate.net/publication/264495630_Taxonomy_and_biostratigraphic_significance_of_some_Middle_Cambrian_Trilobites_from_the_Conasauga_Formation_in_western_Georgia (partly guided by a few locals). After searching, we found tons of nodules, and only a few exposed Trilo parts. It was only near the end of the trip that I realized that at this site, I might need to split the nodules open to find much in them. So I took a few decent sized ones with me to figure out what to do with them after I attempted to split

    Mazon Creek area nodules

    Hi everyone! Today I have something different to show you all: Mazon Creek area nodules that have opened for me via the freeze-thaw method!!! These unopened nodules were acquired from @deutscheben after I asked him if he wouldn't mind sending me some since I wanted to try my luck at opening them myself. He generously sent me 18 unopened nodules, all of which have gone through the freeze-thaw cycle I don't know how many times and so far only 3 have opened up. I'd like a little help in identifying what they are - thanks in advance!!! I believe they are from the Pennsylvanian peri
  14. Herein I plan to post pics of my modest collection of Mazon Creek fossils, but first a question. I found this nice little map in a paper by LoBue (2010) of the general Mazon Creek area, showing the location of the numbered mines/pits. Could any of you who know the area and the fossils explain in a nutshell which areas produce the Essex Fauna and which produce the Braidwood Fauna (or flora - maybe I should say 'Biota')? I know Pit 11 is the main source of Essex fauna (Essexella etc.), but is it the only place Essex fauna occur, and those other pits produce only Braidwood biota? Are they re
  15. On my holiday trip from Ohio back to Minnesota, I thought of taking some time and searching the Braidwood area for fossils. I overnighted in the area, jumped out of bed at the crack of dawn with anticipation and headed to the Mazonia-Braidwood State Fish and Wildlife Area. Unfortunately, the park was gated off and access was only allowed for hunting (animal) purposes. On top of this, light snow began to fall making it hard to see anything on the ground. I did manage to look under some trees outside of the gated area and found what looked like a few nodules. It is common knowledge to open thes

    Small Pinnules

    In a previous post i showed some finds from the British Coal Measures of Derbyshire , this is a small nodule from there it measures 21mm long x 12mm wide and the longest pinnule is just 4mm . I have tried to show it's size in these 4 pictures. and just so you don't get bored looking at the same fossil here is a.... Asterophyllites Equisetiformis Cheers John

    What are these things?

    A friend of mine(yes, it really is a friend, not just me lol)apparently got these in a box of stuff, and they were labeled as being from mosasaurs. He asked if they were coprolites, but i don't know exactly how they were described. I told him no, I don't think any coprolites would be so smooth, even, and without any imperfections(I'm sure there are some like that out there, but that must be pretty rare. A random group of coprolites aren't going to all be like that, I'd imagine). I told him I don't really know and that id ask, but my best guess would be either gastroliths, or nodules. I don't t

    Marine fossil ID

    Well, here’s another that we found today on the James River in Virginia. It’s 2.5 inches. At least I know this one isn’t asphalt!
  20. I dont know if this is the appropriate place to ask but I thought I would go to the source to ask. Looking for people that have some crab from NZ that they wouldn't mind working a deal. trade or sell. PM me if you or someone you know can help. It's one of the fossils I'm looking to add to the collection and since I love to prep it should be a win win.
  21. I recently bought a few collections/accumulations of Mazon Creek fossils. One of them seems to have been a collection of all fauna. After sorting out all the pecopteris ferns and such, I am left with a pile of what seems to be mostly fauna. I am not very familiar with them and don't have very much time right now to figure out the classifications. So I thought maybe someone here would like to work out some sort of trade in exchange for ID'ing these nodules for me? There are shrimp, worms, maybe a few more unusual plants, and stuff I have no idea on. I think I have about 50 nodules. PM me if you

    Pennsylvanian Nodules

    We went up to Terre Haute, IN for a wedding this past weekend. I was looking forward to us being able to actually hunt for some fossils of our own as I had read online about Fowler Park/Griffin Bike Park and its nodules. I decided to check out the park rules after we got up there and lo and behold, Vigo County doesn't allow fossil collecting. I didn't want to set a bad example for my daughter so we refrained, much to our dismay. On the way home we stopped at an antique mall and happened to find someone selling jars of split nodules! So, we didn't come home empty-handed after all. B

    Are these IDs correct?

    I just got all these fossils in bulk and was wondering if these IDs are correct. Sorry for the long post. The IDs came mixed up so please correct me if you see any that are wrong. All collected in Yorkshire. Hildoceras Bifrons with shell structure showing? Hildoceras Bifrons on a small nodule Hildoceras Bifrons with some pyrite. Arnioceras Block Catacoeloceras Grammoceras Large Repaired Pseudoloceras Pos and Neg X2 Eleganticeras

    Mazon Creek ID help

    Hey Everyone! Happy new year! A nodule from South Pit 11 Mazonia area split and can't figure out what it is? Millipede? Shrimp tale? I have the Wittrey book I've been looking through and I see similar features on multiple animals from his pictures. Thanks for your help!

    Just Geologic or fossils

    I have some nodules I found already opened that have rounded raised or flat curved lines that go against the rest of the directional patterns of the nodule. They seem to be found in oblong or curved shaped nodules. I didn't know if these were actually fossils or just geologic formations. Again, I am afraid to get rid of anything for fear of rejecting an actual fossil in ignorance.
