Tales From the Shale posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsIt's been a busy summer out here in Wisconsin, but fortunately I was able to make multiple trips out to Oglesby in Illinois. Here were some of the top finds. Perepristis semicircularis, found on my second trip. The chip on the top was from my unlucky Dremel stroke. The white dots on the left are not damage, but tooth coloration. My first and only connularid, of unknown affinity. I'm pleased to have this despite it being fragmentary. What I believe to be an ameura trilobite pygidium, nicely preserved. Composita argentia found a ton of these, but this
Help with plant fossil ID
Muffinsaurus posted a topic in Fossil IDThis was found in Eastern Kentucky in the creek behind my house. Carboniferous. I think it might be astertophyllites. Is this correct?
Is this coprolite?
Muffinsaurus posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this in the creek behind my house in Eastern Kentucky. It's been raining (and flooding) a lot so tons of rocks are being washed out of the hills. I'm uncertain what era this could be from since I'm not exactly sure where it washed out from. The pictures I'm including show it while it was still in the rock and after I removed it. I thought it was made of metal at first, but it isn't magnetic at all, nor is it soft like lead or aluminum. After looking around online the closest thing I could find to it's shape is fish coprolite. Is this coprolite or just some stran
Fossil found in Ozarks - segments of a cephalopod?
Agassiz posted a topic in Fossil IDI found the following rock and several other highly worn pieces in a creek bed that look to contain fossils of sea worms, etc., Fossils were found southeast of Fayetteville, Arkansas (long 35.68815 x lat -93.74751). Geologic timing - Ordovician? Rock is quite dense, and what was originally shale, is now metamorphic. The "segments", or wider features, measure the same thickness between seams, so i'm guessing this to be from a once living organism. Would love any ideas on this one!
An unknown from the Pennsylvanian, North Canton, Ohio
ZiggieCie posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone, It has been a while since I've posted here as Family matters require changes in Priorities. I spend my fossil time at the Ohio Fossil Collector site on FB. A Friend has posted a recent find of hers from North Canton Ohio. This would be a Pennsylvanian age if it is not a Glacial Erratic from the North. The Central Fern/Fan like piece is the troublemaker. I have checked and not found anything close to this Fossil. I have checked Fossils of Ohio; nothing. I have google searched Fossil Corals of Ohio, Fan type corals but I do not think they were around yet. Searched the Bryozoa's
