  1. Fossil id

    Does anyone know what this is? I found it in Beltzville State Park, Pa, Devonian period. I’ve been told it could be snake skin, a type of Bryozoan and a certain type of tree. It’s lightweight and the bumps are very pronounced. Thank you!
  2. Possible Huge Bryozoan/Anthozoan

    Hello all! I was hunting for fossils in Owingsville, KY on a road cut that contains the Drakes Formation (Late Ordovician). Plenty of brachiopods, small bryozoans, cephalopods and other common Ordovician fossils found. I happened upon this piece, at first just thinking it was geologic with some bryozoan encrusting/deposited within the rock. I almost left it behind but couldn't help but wonder if it was all one piece and that it may truly be an example of large bryozoan or coral. I was curious as to what you all think, whether it be one of the two, mostly geologic or what have you.
  3. Today I was out collecting in Lawrenceburg, Indiana for several hours, accompanying me was some rainfall. This will be a picture heavy post and I will show various fossils that I found and many pieces that I left in the field. I will start out with trilobite parts of Flexicalymene and Isotelus. I did find my first ever complete trilobite, at least I think it is my first, and also my largest piece of an Isotelus that I have ever found. Now the pieces- Next post will be Bryozoan-
  4. Fossils on the lake

    Hey guys! I’m currently out fishing on a lake (Champaign County, IL) and I noticed a bunch of fossils strewn about the rocks on the shore. I don’t think the rocks are from here, so I don’t know if I could give any geologic info unfortunately. If you could help me figure out what I’ve got, I’d really appreciate it! I’ll add more as I find more. Thanks! #1
  5. Bryozoan? From the Banjaard

    Hi everyone, Here's a cool little thing I found on the Banjaard beach (Zeeland, Netherlands) last month. I believe it's a type of bryozoan? If so, what species? Apart from the mollusks, the invertebrates are really not my strong point... The age of this thing is probably (anywhere in the) Pleistocene, but possibly older (up to Eocene). It might be modern too... The most common sediments at this location are Eemian (warm interglacial stage in the late Pleistocene) in age. This specimen was found in a bed of lots of tiny Lacuna vincta shells, if that helps. Thanks in advance, Max
  6. Day One ; Locality Three. Midelt 19th February 2019 The Berber nomads are hospitable, generous and very tough : The snow disappears soon after you get onto the High Plains between the Middle and High Atlas ranges. Here are the High Atlas looming in the distance : As one approaches the town of Midelt, the layered geology of what is mostly Dogger, the old name for the Middle Jurassic, still used here, becomes clear : Midelt is full of fossil shops, however most of the fossils, including a kazillion trilobites, actually come from elsewhere. Jurassic ammonites may be from here, and many of the small cut and polished ammonites are from around here, but Midelt is most famous for its minerals, vanadinite especially. Also lead ores, barite and flourite. Top Tip : Don't buy fossils in Midelt unless it's a cut and polished small ammonite you want. Minerals, yes, many are beautiful and very cheap. Hmm, this looks interesting................. "Stop the car!"
  7. Devonian of NY

    Been taking some pictures of fossil finds the last couple weeks and decided to share. These are from our last couple trips.
  8. A return: Tales of my uncle's truck travels

    Again, it's been a while. Today I've been at my Mom's memorial service, as she passed away in the past week, effectively leaving me without parents. It's been really hard for me to feel good about much anything recently, so here's something else to think about for a change: After the service, my uncle Austin came to me to say he found a fossil. Usually he just jokingly comes to me with a chunk of basalt, saying it's an "alien bone" This time was different, though. He presented me with this: There's a good number of bryozoans, I think a few crinoid sections, and a piece of brachiopod or two on all sides of this piece. What I'm wondering is what formation/age it would be. Austin said he'd found it at a truck stop somewhere in Utah or California, so that could be a clue. Anyone from that area know what formation this may be from?
  9. Bryozoan for further ID

    I've been trying to narrow down the ID for bryozoans I've been finding. I'm not sure if they're weathering out of the Bennett shale or from further up. I have collected about 15 of these over the years and found a nice one several days ago. They are characterized by rounded form with flattish uneven bases. Spacing between monticules is about 1 cm regardless of specimen size. The below example is about 8 cm wide at base and 5 cm tall. I can't find it right now so can only show photos. I'll put a link below to my more recent find. All help appreciated!
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.)
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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.
