    Eocene solitary corals

    Hello guys, As a begginer in the world of fossil hunting, I would appreciate your help with identification of several coral specimens I have found in the eocene era fossil site near the town of Vrgorac, Republic of Croatia. My guess, at least for the first specimen (first 4 photos), is that it represent some kind of Pattalophyllia, whilst for the others I honestly have no idea. Also, the last specimen (last 3 photos), looks like some kind of horn coral, which is weird, considering the fact that they went extinct during Permian and especially because it wa

    Possible fossil coral

    Fossil forum, This is another fossil from the Leighton Fm haul. I was thinking coral, because of the external mold of it, but the internal mold has interesting segments. Unfortunately, the internal mold is missing a piece. Here are some pictures (internal mold on the left, external on the right):

    Unknown fossil

    Fossil forum, I recently found an interesting fossil. I was thinking coral or bryozoan, but was unable to identify it correctly. It is from the Leighton Fm Maine (again), which is Silurian. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of it:

    100_8991

    From the album: Corals of Decorah Minnesota

    Lichenaria typa Uncommon and is very specialized into encrusting on bryozoan, either rugosa or praespora. Mostly tiny with the center right the largest.
  5. Tetradium

    100_8992

    From the album: Corals of Decorah Minnesota

    Aulopora trentonese Rarely on horn corals or mostly exposed. Seem to prefer bryozoans with bryozoans mostly covering them so if you see abnormal numbers of large pores on bryozoan there's Aulopora on them. Learned that piece of information from similar Devonian corals of Iowa.

    100_8995

    From the album: Corals of Decorah Minnesota

    Unknown coral species. Cant find any information on Ordovician lookalikes. Very small polyps. Top Left is very light and I almost threw it away but notice the tiny coral structures in it. Generally oval in shapes, rarely lobed. Uncommon to rare.

    What is this?!

    Hey guys and girls. I’m so sorry if this is a common thing, I don’t hit the beaches often. but I just couldn’t wrap my head around what this is. first I assumed coral, then thought maybe the inner part of a sea snail shell? sorry for sounding silly. Just curious and it’s late and this seems to be the only thing I can focus on, hahaha

    Sea fossils id

    Hello! I'm asking for another person who found these fossils in southern Sweden (Kristianstad). There is sites around this region which have fossils from the cretaceous period so Im thinking it is plausible that these also are cretaceous. I've numbered each fossil to make it easier to talk about them and to id what type of fossils they are.

    Bones and sponges? Help?

    Hello Fossil friends! I have a couple fossils(?) I'm going to see if I can get help identifying. I found all of them in the same local area of a river shore in northeastern Kansas, so I'm assuming Pennsylvanian time frame. I have some fossils that are obvious shells and coral, but these I'm not sure and would like your input! If you need more photos or angles, let me know. #1 I think is a fish vertebrae that's slightly flattened. It's about 1 cm x .3 cm.
  12. I'm looking for assistance identifying a large fossil that was in with skids of limestone rockery from the Niagara Escarpment. I have uploaded a series of pictures to Flickr https://flic.kr/s/aHsmTVvrFN and attached one image. It looks like a type of coral. There is lots of texture on the surface. When opened up, it is full of long columns. Thanks.
  13. Found this on the surface in a Brazos River feeder creek near Houston. It was not near any known exposure, but the Brazos itself transport marine Eocene and Paleocene from up north. It also erodes out Pleistocene bone pretty often. The bank of this feeder creek was sandy with clay underneath. One end of the cross section appears to show something organic within. When looking in from the empty end, the cavity wall is rough but doesn't look like bone-porous. Lick test of the outer surface is positive, noticeably, which makes me think this is marine. Overall, the segment is 1" i

    UK Convex Spherical Structure (marine)

    Heya! This is a spherical convex structure found in the South of the England. Unfortunately, as I found it when I was very little, I cannot seem to recall the exact location, and, thus, the age. Originally, as a child, I crudely assumed it to be a mushroom... Ah, the wonders of child's minds... More recently, I conducted a study upon it, and, due to the septa and mouth-like crystalline structure at the top, I identified it as a polyp cup of a Rugosa coral. However, I am still unsure as to what it is. Any input would be greatly appreciated, cheers!

  18. I found this a couple of years ago with no resolution or thoughts on what it might be. It is astoundingly close to circular. 6 feet (1.83 meters) in diameter. Dark brown in color but with color variations. Unfortunately, I did not get any close-ups of the orb itself. It seemed fairly indeterminate as to any pattern such as corals might make. The formation it is in is full of crinoids. The brown orb seems to have a radial pattern. Again too dark to get a decent shot while I was there. I am sort of thinking this may be some sort of reef material? Giant stromat

    Mysterious coral fossil

    This is a coral fossil found in Myloi Gorge, in Rethymno area. I can't identify it, but i know its epoch is Pliocene because in that area were found fish fossils in matrix dated from the Zanclean subepoch( subepoch in Pliocene). Please, can you try to identify it. Thanks.

    Mississippian Coral ID Help

    I found this coral several months ago in the Late Mississippian Mauch Chunk Group of West Virginia. I admit that it is a worn example, but it is the only Carboniferous tabulate coral that I have found so far. My initial guess is Michelinia sp. Is there enough there to make an identification? Any help is greatly appreciated!
