    Ganolepis gracilis Woodward, 1893

    Taxonomy from Poplin & Lund 2000. Description for the genus from Woodward 1893, p 286: "Trunk elegantly fusiform, more or less elongated. Mandibular suspensorium oblique, and dentition compromising conspicuous well-spaced conical laniaries; external head and opercular bones completely ornamented with striations, vermiculating rugae, and dots of ganoine. Fins small, without fulcra, and the rays delicate, distally bifurcated. Dorsal and anal fins triangular, the former opposed to the space between the pelvic and anal fins; upper caudal lobe slender and the caudal fin forked. Scales
  2. Hey all, I'm hoping that one of you has access to a page that's missing from the online pdf version of USGS Professional Paper 203: James Williams' 1943 STRATIGRAPHY AND FAUNA OF THE LOUISIANA LIMESTONE OF MISSOURI. The missing page is Plate 9. I have everything else, so if you happen to have access to a hardcopy version, just scan the plate and post it here, thanks so much!

    Irish Waulsortian Limestone Fossil

    Complete newbie with a bunch of new fossils so brace yourselves. The fossil was found in east Clare (Ireland) Waulsotian limestone. This rock is dated Tournaisian - Lower Visean, and is a mix of solid limestone & a brittle lime mud. (Id'd using geological survey maps) "Waulsortian limestone is extensively developed in Ireland, and it represents a phase of submarine bank development during the Tournaisian (Mississippian, Carboniferous). These carbonate buildups are rich in (now lithified) lime mud, contain a shelly marine fossil fauna and generally lack any sign

  5. Greetings, all! I am currently writing a thesis involving fossils from the Burlington Limestone near its type section along the Illinois/Iowa border. To demonstrate the diversity of the crinoidal remains from the limestone (over 400 species have been described from the Burlington alone!), I am looking for photographs of articulated crinoids. Do any of you have any that you would like to let me include in my thesis? If possible, I would like high-res images of crinoids identified to genus or species with a scale bar/ruler present in the image as well as the collection/locality info. I can'

    Carboniferous unknown

    Hell All I was going through some micro-matrix from the quarry in Soignies when I found this tiny object. I'm not sure it's a fossil but I wanted to check and it seems to be too symmetrical to be geologic. The piece is 2,5 mm in size. It's found in marine deposits togheter with crinoid parts, trilobites... It's from the Tournaisian (Carboniferous). What do you all think? Picture one shows one side and the second picture the opposite side. It's round and nearly perfectly symmetrical. Thanks already

    Crinoids in epoxy

    This is more a piece of artwork than a prep job. In my area they excavate Belgian blue hardstone and is used a lot in buildings. This is a durable crinoidic limestone from the early carboniferous ( Tournaisian ). I've colected multiple times in one of those quarries, and in some layers you can find countles crinoid stems. Now I had the idea to use a discarded piece of this crinoidic limestone and make a hole in the middle , I filled up the hole with transparant epoxy in multimple layers and between each layer I droped a few of the crinoid stem's that can be found i
  9. A nice Spring day and a return one of my favourite areas. Headed out to the Eastern slopes west of Calgary. Begins with a 45 minute bicycle ride along Canyon Creek. Then the physically hard part...an hour or so climbing through the forested lower slopes to get above the tree line. Then another 4 hours diligently scrambling around exploring the area (yellow circle on photo). Although the yellow circle looks small its the size of a couple soccer pitches. Fossils are from under the cliffs. Cliffs have fossil layers but too precarious to access.

  12. Last week I got a written permission from a quarry nearby that allowed me to visit the location, and I was allowed to bring a few extra people. So I a friend and his wife where going to join me on the field trip, they are particularly interested in trilobites and this might be one of the best spots in Belgium to find some, although complete specimens are still hard to find. The rendez vous point was the parking of the quarry, so I left early in the morning in not so great weather conditions: gray clouds, rain and lots of wind. I got to the place at 9 AM and waited a while for my 2 friends.
