Wrangellian posted a topic in Fossil IDI've had these few pieces in one of my drawers for years and I got looking at them again today. Three of them are clearly some form of Fusulinid or other Foram, the other I think is oolite. I don't remember where I got them but suffice it to say I didn't collect them myself. I guess I don't expect much info to come in about these, but in the off-chance that anyone recognizes the material I'd appreciate knowing about it. They each seem to be quite distinctive so there is hope. The only Fusulinid I know of in B.C. is Yabeina from the Cache Creek area (Marble Canyon), which I've read about in books about BC geology, but I've never collected at that spot so I wouldn't know how to recognize it, if any of my pieces are from there. Otherwise my best guess is they're from somewhere in the US where these things are more readily available.
