Brach3 posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionDear all, if Devonian Epizoans (Epibionts) & Pathological Brachiopods (all the periods) are a fascinating group of fossils for you and you want to discuss anything about their paleoecology, please post your photos (specimens) in this thread.
Hello, everybody! I have been sorting through my wenlock limestone material, Middle Silurian and have a couple of personal problematica. I am wondering if any of you brilliant folks could help me out. Here is an object which seems to be an epibiont on a Favosites coral. 5 mm long and about 1.5 mm diameter at the widest. Is it a cornulitid ? Or a single corallite of Aulopora? Something else, maybe? And another one? On a solitary rugose coral. 3 mm x 1 mm. And an example of Aulopora from Wiki to compare : And a cornulitid that looks a bit similar : I would be very grateful for any help. Then there is this. Is it the worm Keilorites? Length 1.9 cm, width 2.5 mm max.
I found this by the side of gravel road so difficult to say formation, but I'll go with upper Pennsylvanian. I think I'm seeing syringopora in the majority of this rock. There's also a small area that looks like aulopora growing on net-like bryozoan. If you can verify any of this, please do. Thanks.
A few weeks ago I complained about a fossil trip that ended with few finds. But after washing the fossils and examining them closely, I actually had a few interesting specimens. The first are these trilobites -- tiny -- but trilobites, nonetheless. The trip was in Paulding, Ohio, Devonian silica shale.
