  1. Hi guys! This is a continuation of a previous post focusing just on the sponges. These fossils are from the Capitan Formation, which is Permian Period, Guadalupian Epoch, Capitanian Stage. Because these fossils are in the park, no collecting was allowed, and I can't provide additional images. Any confirmations about the identification or suggestions about a more specific identification are welcome. This trilobite is the only fossil out of these images that was actually found in Carlsbad Caverns, right behind the elevator. Can I get more specific on an ID? Cross section of rugose coral? Sponge? Bryozoan. Acanthocladia? Bryozoan? Crinoid.
  2. Hi guys! I don't post here often, but I'm a PhD student in geology, currently working on tropical Paleogene palynology. I'm taking an unrelated class on the Permian Basin and I am working on identifying some of the fossils our class saw in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. I'm not a sponge expert, and I was hoping someone on the forum might be able to confirm or correct my identifications. I might make a follow-up post on the non-sponge fossils we saw on the trip. A bit of background, these pictures were taken in the field with a metric scale, the scale has been cropped out of the pictures and a 5 mm scale bar is added. No fossil collecting was allowed on this trip so I won't be able to provide additional images. The fossils are from the Capitan Formation, which is Permian Period, Guadalupian Epoch, Capitanian Stage. The global stage name is actually named after the nearby El Capitan peak. Amblysiphonella? Archaeolithoporella?
  3. Strange fossils in Ohio Rock

    Hey, I was fossils hunting in Ohio and found some pretty neat stuff, but one Rock in particular had some strange fossils in it, it almost looks like a little trilobite plus some other stuff.
  4. Identification Request

    Here is another rock from a middle Tennessee creek. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) It is full of tiny brachiopods, bryozoan bits and maybe a few other fossils. I would like to have the area circled in red identified.
  5. I found this little rock in a creek in middle Tennessee. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone & Warsaw Limestone) I know there is a brachiopod and bryozoan in it, but am wondering if the area circled in red (last picture) is also a brachiopod, or something els?
  6. Bryozoan? Paleozoic/Mississippian?

    Can anyone help me indentify what these are? I’ve found them on a few of the rocks we’ve found, but haven’t been able to figure it out so far. They were found on a bluff in Boone County, MO, in the same area rife with the Crinoids we’ve been finding. I’m thinking from the Paleozoic/Mississippian Era? These are the clearest pictures I could get tonight but, if more are needed, I’m happy to take some in natural light tomorrow. Thanks in advance for your help!
  7. Confirmation of Id

    Found this today, I used to call these coral but I think they're actually bryozoa. Am I correct? Sorry I forgot scale its about 1.5 by 2 inches.
  8. ID Request

    I found several rocks/fossils in the creek bordering my property in middle Tennessee today. (Mississippian, St. Louis Limestone and Warsaw Limestone) My favorite is a little one which has a few tiny fossils in it. I am particularly hoping to have the area circled in red in one of the pictures identified.
  9. Bryozoa Colony

    I have found a few of these over the years, but it was only recently that I looked closely enough to see that they were not broken bits of the fossil barnacles clusters that litter the beach. The shape, color and texture are actually quite different from the barnacles at this location. This one was excavated from a chunk of landslide material that also contained index fossils of the Drum Cliff Member.
  10. I found two chunks of limestone from Madison group possibly lodgpole or Mission Canyon member. Take from upper belt Creek in Montana. At first I thought this was a coral. Is this a Bryozoan?
  11. I found this on hilltop in Wreford Formation. I've never seen this before and at first I thought it was Acanthocladia. It's not. Has anyone seen this type before? Lower Permian, Wreford formation, Kansas. 904 bryozoan.bmp
  12. ADAM's SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelgill (Skelghyll) in Cumbria, Northern England. It seems to be a tabulate coral, but I can't find any listed for this location, only mentions of small, rare, rugose corals. It has the star shaped corallites of a Heliolitidid, but seems to be tightly packed together like a Favositidid. A couple of species of Palaeofavosites seem to be close and are a bit star-shaped,, but anyone know any better? @TqB@piranha hmm who else? The coral bit, an external mold, is a maximum of 3.5 cm across and each corallite up to 2 mm.
  13. Bryozoan, and trilo piece?

    Found at lake Champlain in Vermont, Ordovician-Iberville formation. I’m assuming the first bit is another type o bryozoan I’ve yet to have seen, and the second piece you can only faintly see the symmetrical counter part so I traced it to give a good idea of shape, is it some lining of a trilobite? Any information/ideas are welcome! 1.) 2.)
  14. Bryozoa?

    Any ideas on this guys? I guess it's some type of bryozoa/bryozoan (dunno if it's one beast or lots of 'em) It's like an undulating mat. The 'mat' varies in thickness from, I guess, 2mm -5mm. The round things are in relief not indented. Era: Silurian Location: Wrens Nest, Dudley, UK @TqB
  15. Ordovician bryozoan

    I pulled this one out of a creek bed a couple weeks ago but cant narrow it down. Any ideas? Its from the Georgian Bay fm (Upper Ordovician) Forgot to add: the specimen is ~5cm/2 inches in length
  16. All specimens come from the Devonian aged Arkona formation. 1. Echinoderm, possibly a blastoid Tried taking another pic...still not quite sharp 2. Unknown, possibly bryozoans (remainds me a bit of Evactinopora) 3. Unknown, probably the inner structure of ostracods With these being the outer shell: 4. I posted these about a month ago but I don't think we figured it out. Now I am pretty sure they are scaphopods.
  17. This November there were 2 days on the beach when I found over 336 various sizes of gastropods covered with at least 2 different types of bryozoa. I have found similar gastropods covered with coral from the Pliocene in Florida. These fascinate me (hardly of any interest to others on the beach whose focus is shark teeth) because they have a story: the gastropod dies; a hermit crab occupies the dead shell; bryozoa attaches itself to the shell and begins to cover it. I had found maybe 5 of these gastropods at the high tide mark prior to these two days. It was in low tide areas that i found the 336 (previously I had searched the same areas and found none. After the 2 days I did not find anymore even in other areas of the beach some distance away. I am aware that id of bryozoa is difficult but perhaps someone can recognize the "bumpy" pimply variety in the picture. But more importantly, I am looking for confirmation that these are indeed fossil (beach finds) and any idea as to their age? I also found about 15 small individual bryozoan colonies.
  18. Please help with ID of sponges, corals and bryozoans

    Dear Guys, I collected some interesting specimens in Jurassic- Early Cenozoic erratics like sponges, bryozoans and hexacorals and also two primitive Ordovician sponges. The sponge pieces are 3-8 mm length (In yellowish limestone on sponge has very interesting skeleton growth outside). The size of coral in greenish gray limestone is 9 mm diameter, in the white limestone- 7 mm diameter. The bryozoans are from 7 mm to 1 cm length, they web shaped. Please help with ID of these fossils if you could. Best Regards Domas 1. Late Jurassic sponges in my opinion. 2. Early Cretaceous (?) sponges. 3. Late Cretaceous- Paleocene sponges I think.
  19. I collected this specimen earlier today from the Pennsylvanian, Kansas City group, Winterset limestone near Kansas City. When I split the rock, I was delighted to see the delicate preservation. Am I correct that this is an internal mold of a fan bryozoan? Russ Here is the right side. Here are both sides. Here is the left side. An here is another view of the right.
  20. Another trip to Wrens Nest

    Had a great day out with Candace and Nick @thelivingdead531 @Barerootbonsai Friday 20th. Here are a few of my finds, I’ll post the hash plates when I’ve photographed them. We all got a great variety of finds, here are some of mine. I’m sure Nick and Candace will add to this thread.
  21. Fall Break in Sulphur

    Hi! This teacher is spending the last day of Fall Break Christmas shopping - fossils for my students! Found a few beauties for teacher, too... I think this may be part of a trilobite... thoughts? More pics in comments of other mystery finds as I find them! Thanks in advance!
  22. Mahantango Bryozoan

    Hi folks. Still searching for a complete trilobite. The "Bit" count is over 80 now .... still hopeful though. Anyway, I cracked open this densely populated plate of bryozoans. Several species were throughout this chunk. I saved this split as it is probably the best (size) example of this particular species that I have found here so far. Kind regards,
  23. Hi rock heads Last weekend I was teaching in London which gave me the opportunity to break the journey up by stopping off 2/3 of the way home to Manchester at Wrens Nest. Wrens Nest is situated in Dudley, a town close to Birmingham in the West Midlands, UK. Wrens Nest is the best and productive Silurian site in the UK. Here's two maps of the location Not often you find a site of this size and quality bang in the middle of a large town! There are are three options for parking, the actual car park (which was locked as a UK public holiday. Or The Caves pub next to Wrens Nest. Or the road. After a two minute walk I was in the national park. No hammers are allowed or needed! Here's the Silurian sea bed. It's cordoned off as there are regular rock slides revealing another layer of sea bed. Cool huh?
  24. Bryozoan Seabed Plate

    Found this large Bryozoan Seabed plate north of Milwaukee, WI a while back. I noticed an imprint that almost looks like a footprint of some sort. Curious to hear from group on potential dinosaur footprint. Probably unlikely given size 2-3/4 long but thought I would ask
  25. Tabulate Coral

    From the album Beltzville State Park

    Pleurodictyum americanum Devonian Manhatango Formation Beltzville State Park, Beltzville, PA Thank you to @fossildude19 for the ID!
