Can somebody help identify this and give me an idea how old it is? I found it on a dirt road about a mile from the Potomac River in Western Maryland, and about 1000 feet up on a ridge. I can see 8 arms (one is hard to see, along the edge), so I am thinking this is the arms of an octopus, or something related to it. But the arms are rather short, and they seem to radiate out like a sea anenome, so maybe not. This is my first ever fossil find.
Hey friends I took a little walk at lunchtime today cracking shale along the way. Found this in the split of a piece of the harder gray/black/blue shale that doesn't have many fossils in it .... that I have found, anyway. Is it a crinoid ? from the calyx up ? Very interesting tentacles ... or whatever they're called. Its quite small. The calyx (if that's what it is) is about 5mm diameter. Could this be prepped out ? Looks like it would all be there, but quite delicate and tricky to expose. Thanks for looking
