Everyone knows associated fossils, specifically of associated bones (bones that come from the same creature). I was wondering what association among fossils extend to. Can 2 individual echinoids found in close proximity in the same layer be considered associated?
It was during my spring break 2 weeks ago that I first heard about the PAG. (Paleontology Association of Georgia) It was only started January last year, and have a few dozen members now. I'm definitely going to try and join in by the next meeting, May 5th. Any other Georgians interested? https://paleoassocga.weebly.com/
In the field, I always seem to pocket neat associations. Two from the last month have been a platyceras affixed to a horn coral, and a tiny brachiopod pressed against the end piece of an orthocone nautiloid. While going through my little pile of dusty high-spired gastropods from last weekend's Brechin trip, I rubbed at the larger one and found a cute, full prone Flexicalymene there. Not a spectacular (re)discovery, but pretty cool nonetheless.
