  1. Samurai

    Neuropteris sp. Leaf

    From the album: Missouri Plant Fossils

    Roughly 2.3 cm Long
  2. This appears to me to be a somewhat smashed axial lobe of a Ameura missouriensis, and the first one I have found with the thorax. I found it in the Winterset Limestone Member of the Pennsylvanian, Kansas City Group, near Kansas City, Missouri. Does this ID seem right to you folks? Actually, the thing I want to do is exclude the (highly remote, I know) possibility of an eurypterid. I'm not sure if there is much more to prep as the fossil just disappears into the matrix. Russ

    Pennsylvanian trilobite ID

    I was going through my trilobite pygidiums and cephalons from the Winterset of the Pennsylvanian Kansas City group and I found this cephalon that seems different from the others I have. In particular, the genal spine seems curved. In the photos you can see both the internal mold and, in the other half of the split, the inside of the shell. I assume the pygidium beside it is belongs to the same creature, but I could be wrong. Any help with the ID will be appreciated. Russ
  4. In praise of my faithful old walking stick and why I carry it fossil hunting: · To clear cobs’ webs from my path · To serve as a third leg on slopes and uneven ground · To clack on boulders advising the residents (especially snakes) that I am about · To extend to a friend helping him get up that last few feet of cliff · To probe among stones where I’m leery of putting my hand · To hold aside the leafy foe – poison ivy · Or the spiny foe · To help carry my bag of rocky treasures, suspended fro
  5. This specimen is from the Pennsylvanian subsystem, Kansas City group, and probably the Winterset member. I say probably because I collected it several years ago and I'm not sure. If it is not from Winterset, then it is from a some other nearby member in the Kansas City Group. It seems that the only arthropods in the Winterset are trilobytes, so I'm thinking that this is not arthropod, even though it has that superficial appearance. Can you folks help me identify it?
  6. I collected this specimen earlier today from the Pennsylvanian, Kansas City group, Winterset limestone near Kansas City. When I split the rock, I was delighted to see the delicate preservation. Am I correct that this is an internal mold of a fan bryozoan? Russ Here is the right side. Here are both sides. Here is the left side. An here is another view of the right.
  7. I found this in the Winterset Limestone of the Pennsylvanian system, Kansas City group near Raytown, MO. The matrix was quite oolithic. You may notice from the pictures that I had some trouble reassembling and gluing it after it fell apart, and it may be missing a bit of the small end. It looks to me like an internal mold of an evolutely coiled cephalopod. It is about 2 cm x 1.5 cm. Any ID help will be appreciated.

    Small items on a brachiopod shell

    In the Winterset Limestone of the Kansas City Group (Pennsylvanian) there is a section that is thick with Composita brachiopods. On one of these I found the tiny (around 1 mm) items in the pictures. Any help with their identification would be appreciated. Russ
  9. This item is from the Winterset Limestone of the Kansas City Group in the Pennsylvanian subsystem. The two pictures below show the two exposed faces of the fossil. The first picture shows the circular face, the second shows the triangular/conical face. I could not find a way to take a picture that would show the entire fossil. The fossil is about 6 cm tall and 6 cm at the base (the circular face) and appears to me to form a geometric cone-shape that is spiraled. The circular face is concave and I have excavated some of the matrix from the center area. I'm interested in doing some further

    Pennsylvanian tooth

    This tooth is from the Winterset Limestone Member, Kansas City Group, of the Pennsylvanian Subsystem. Any help with an ID will be appreciated. Russ
  11. I have found a number of these items in the Pennsylvanian, Kansas City group, Winterset Limestone member in southern Kansas City. Any help in giving an ID will be appreciated. These items are quit common, so the local collectors have likely seen them. The longest I have found is about three inches and the thickness ranges from ½ to 1 ½ inches. Many of them have a core (usually white) that seems to run the length of the item.

    What are these tiny fossils?

    I could use some help with the ID for these tiny fossils. I found them in the Pennsylvanian Subsystem, the Kansas City Group, at the top of the Winterset L.S. Member and at another site in the Kansas City Group that I cannot identify (I don’t know what it is). Most of the specimens I have found were in fist-size nodules of tan/yellowish limestone. These specimens are all around 1 cm in size and the tiny nodes/spines are 1 mm or so. After having seen dozens of these specimens, I have observed that most of them consist of a round disc about 1 cm in size with the tiny “spines” pointin

    Pennsylvanian Calamites?

    This specimen was a surprise to me. At first glance, because of the delicate fibrous appearance and the wood color, I thought it was a modern piece of wood embedded in the middle of a boulder. Closer examination, however, revealed what you see in the pictures. This specimen is from the Winterset Limestone Member in the Kansas City Group, Pennsylvanian subsystem. It is about 1 cm long with a short branch off to the side. The specimen is split in half laterally and the pictures show the two halves that fit together. There were various brachiopods and half of a nice four-inch involutely coiled na

    Pennsylvanian gastropod?

    This specimen is from the Winterset Limestone Member in the Kansas City Group, Pennsylvanian Subsystem. It is somewhat fragile (I broke off two small pieces and then repaired it), so I have not be able to remove it from its matrix. The fossil is about 2x1 cm. There are small brachiopods and a bit of fan bryozoan on the rock as well. I have not seen any other fossils like this one in the area. It might be a gastropod, but the “base” of the fossil seems oblong, as though it came to a point (but is now broken) and the fossil does not really look spiral (although it is hard to tell). There are two
  15. Here are some Pennsylvanian gastropods I found years ago that are mostly free of matrix, which is unusual around these parts: Winterset Limestone Jackson County, Missouri They include Hypselentoma, Knightites, and one other that is too tiny to id. Because they are so pristine, I suspected that they were silicified. A scratch on a glass bottle confirmed it. The next thing that came to mind is that if I could find the limestone bed from which they came, I could extract some more with acid. I had returned to the exposure in the pas
