  1. I found these that resembles burrow or root cast in Ellsworth county, Kansas, USA from my previous trip. The formation these came from are most likely Kiowa formation/Kiowa Shale and the age is Albian. Here's the link to my previous trip. I'm just catching up with the prepping and sorting my fossils from my previous trips. I am wondering if it is some sort of ichnofossils. Is it burrow, root cast, or something else? Also, is it possible for it to be from geological origin rather than a true ichnofossil? This one is the largest I found. The center is poorly cemented sandstone and can be easily brushed off with a toothbrush while the outside layer is hard. Notice the winkles around the interior bend. The measurement is in inches (I know I need to get a metric system badly, my apologies!)

  18. Fusulinid?

    Looking for ID help. I originally thought the fossils were triticites because I found some chert with definite triticites at the same location. But the fossils in the pictured rock are indeed elliptical shaped from the top view (like triticites), but are circular from the side view. The rock is limestone from Pocahontas County, Iowa. The third through sixth photos are microscopic (~40x). The last photo shows a coral located on the underside of the same rock. Fusinilid? corpoloite? ichnofossil? Or what? Your ID info will be appreciated.
  19. The below paper is an interesting reinterpretation of the depositional environment of the Birket Qarun Formation of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Wadi Al-Hitan, also known as either Valley of Whales or Zeuglodon Valley, in the Western Desert of Egypt. The paper is: Gee, C.T., Sander, P.M., Peters, S.E., El-Hennawy, M.T., Antar, M.S.M., Zalmout, I.S. and Gingerich, P.D., Fossil burrow assemblage, not mangrove roots: reinterpretation of the main whale-bearing layer in the late Eocene of Wadi Al-Hitan, Egypt.

  20. Hi all! Yesterday afternoon I visited my local haunt (Etobicoke Creek, Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician) with the kids, and I found a few items that I'd like to show you: Item #1: long crinoid stem - any ideas as to its identity? Item #2: big piece with ichnofossils - item circled in yellow is ichnofossil "a" and item circled in orange is ichnofossil "b" Item #2a: ichnofossil "a" top view Item #2: ichnofossil "b" top view Item #2: ichnofossil "b" side view Item #3 top: two views of a mineral stain that has the shape of a hyolith - what do you think? Item #3 bottom: crinoid columnal impressions (I think!) so it is fossiliferous rock (I think!) so perhaps the specimen above could've been a hyolith??? Thanks as usual for your help! Monica
  21. borings(?) & potential ostracod:)

    hey all! i was going through some of my stuff & found this pretty cool rock- it’s from anticosti island and has many ichnofossils in the top & bottom- i’m thinking they’re borings. on the bottom i noticed a figure vaguely resembling a circle- from what i can tell, it’s an ostracod. opinions & feedback are very much appreciated, & thank you in advance!!
  22. Trace Fossil sites

    Hey everyone I recently heard about a paper on the definition of "Lagerstätte" (see attached); and it did raise an interesting question - "Can a trace fossil site be called a Lagerstätte?" What do you guys think about this? -Christian On_the_definition_of_Lagerstatte.pdf
  23. Eocene Green River Formation ichnofossils

    I would like some help identifying some trace fossils. These are all from the same site from the "Soldier Summit Fossil Track Horizon" area in the Eocene Green River Formation. My grandson and I collected these for his science fair project, so any insight is welcome. Fossil A is obviously a tail feather. It's length is 55mm. Fossil B has shore-bird tracks, but please notice the insect track in the right side. What kind of insect could have made this? Fossil C and D are different sides of the same rock. For side C, I initially thought that this might be bird tracks, but I they don't look anything like the classic pattern in the sample B. Fossil D is covered with fine lines, perhaps some worm tracks? Close-ups E and F zoom in on these tracks. Close-up E shows a mottled pattern on the left, perhaps an alge mat? On the left, a wavy track. I don't know how a worm could create this pattern. Close-up F shows fine lines.
  24. Talpina?

    Flint from southern Poland. Parking lot gravel, age unknown. Would you say it's Talpina?
  25. Toronto creek and river finds

    Hello there! I'm still in the process of deciding which fossils to put in my new display cabinets, so I'm looking for some identification help, if possible. All of the items pictured were found in the Toronto area (Georgian Bay Formation, Upper Ordovician) along creeks or rivers - please help me identify them if you can! Thanks in advance! Monica Picture #1: A trace fossil, but of what? Someone suggested trilobite tracks, but I don't know - what do you think? Perhaps @piranha can have a look... Picture #2: This may or may not be a trace fossil - I only just noticed it today. It vaguely resembles trilobite tracks to me (cruziana), but I'm definitely not sure...
