    Pyncno-Gyra

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Pycnodonte mutibilis and Exogyra cancellata Cretaceous, Reedy Point, Delaware Posted just as a curiosity. I found two shells next to each other in a shovel full of sand. They were broken at the edges and caked in the sand. I twisted them around and they kinda, sorta fit together. I got them home and started to wash the off. I realized right away that the flatter one, washed first, was not the same species as the rounder one. One was a Pycnodonte and the other an Exogyra. Then, I washed off the second one. I don't quite know why because they are both common enough that I

  9. Here are a few of the more interesting items from last Fridays trip to a southeastern N.C. Quarry. I have already posted the C. auriculatus tooth and Plesiosaur vert I found in separate posts. First a very small Hardouinia aequoria echinoid. This echinoid is very uncommon and is from the Cretaceous PeeDee Formation. This one is broken on the top and at 17mm is on the small side. It is differentiated from the much more common Hardouinia mortonis by the shape of the pericproct which is elongated instead of circular. N

    Pycnodonte mutabilis

    This species is one of the most common finds at this location. This particular specimen is actually two individuals. One grew on another. The "stand" for the upright shells is the flat half of another Pycnodonte. These were found in living state in loose sand with mud holding the two pieces of the intact animal together.

    Ostrea alifera var. pediformis Craigin

    This is a Cretaceous oyster that I found in Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. The oyster has traces of a yellowish calcite-cemented sandstone found in the upper part of the Arcadia Park Formation of the Eagle Ford Group. "Pediformis" in the name, Ostrea alifera var. pediformis, means foot-shaped or pediform because the oyster looks like a foot or boot. In Hill 1898, the author eliminated the Ostrea alifera Cragin, and Ostrea alifera var. pediformis Cragin names because he considered them to be Ostrea lugubris Conrad. I disagree with Hill's decision because my oyste

    Post Oak Creek, Texas Oyster

    What is this Cretaceous oyster that I found in Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas? Most oysters in the creek come from a yellowish calcite-cemented sandstone from the Arcadia Park Formation of the Eagle Ford Group. It is about 48mm in length.

    Cameleolopha bellaplicata

    Here are interior and exterior views of both valves of the Cretaceous oyster, Cameleolopha bellaplicata, collected in Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas, The specimen is more oval and elongated that most of the members of its species. The calcite valves with a trace of interior aragonite, mother of pearl, are covered in yellowish calcite cemented sandstone. The larger valve has the remnants of an attached ramose bryozoan that grew on the shell since the muddy Arcadia Park Formation did not provide a great hard ground to grow on. An unidentified domed colonial stone coral species also grow on the
