  1. Supplementing the post in “Fossil Hunting Trips” about the Devonian Plabutsch-formation in Styria, Austria (with some background info): http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/90431-some-fossil-hunting-in-the-plabutsch-formation-of-the-palaeozoic-of-graz-styria-austria-devonian-–-eifelian/ I would like to post some more fossil specimens in this thread. More specimens will follow from time to time (hopefully). The first two specimens contain abundant branches of the tabulate coral Striatopora? suessi. Field pics of these specimens are already posted in the hunting trip, but here you can see also their side views, showing the alingment of the individual coral branches. (I don´t know why pics don´t look good here, but if you are zooming in, they are ok).
  2. As there are some polished fossil-rock specimens from this formation in the Christmas auction, I would like to present some background info with (mostly) some field photographs, so I have put this in “Fossil Hunting Trips”. The Palaeozoic of Graz is a thrust sheet within the Eastern Alps, composed of Silurian to Pennsylvanian sediments. It consists of three separate nappes, the most fossiliferous formation is the Plabutsch-formation within the Rannach nappe. This Devonian formation is of Eifelian age (ca. 395 Ma), about 100 m thick and mostly made up of a very dark, gray-blueish to black, fine-grained, thickly bedded limestone. Superficially, it weathers to a medium to light grey color. Geological map of Styria with the Palaeozoic of Graz situated north of Graz. Stratigraphic column of the Rannach nappe of the Palaeozoic of Graz, Plabutsch-formation is Nr. 4. From Hubmann & Gross, 2015. Thicknesses of formations are not to scale! The Plabutsch-formation crops out at various places to the west and north of Graz and more than 100 fossil sites are known within this formation. The most abundant fossils are corals, brachiopods, stromatoporids and crinoid fragments. Other fossils like gastropods, bivalves or trilo-bits are very rare. In a paper from 1975, about 50 coral species are listed, but less than 10 are abundant: Tabulata: Favosites styriacus Penecke, 1894 Pachycanalicula barrandei (Penecke, 1887) Thamnopora boloniensis (Gosselet, 1877) Thamnopora reticulata (Blainville, 1830) Striatiopora? suessi Penecke, 1894 Rugosa: Thamnophyllum stachei Penecke, 1894 Zelophyllia cornuvaccinum (Penecke, 1894) Do you feel that there is something strange with this list? Yes, it is! Most species have their type locality within this formation and were first described by Penecke, except T. boloniensis (T. reticulata was also erected by Penecke as Pachypora orthostachys and later synonymized with an earlier described species). In my opinion, this does not reflect a high degree of endemism, but an urgent need for revision… The most abundant fossil is Favosites styriacus, which can form massive colonies up to 0.5 m in size. Here is an example from Hohe Rannach Mt. (1018 m) north of Graz, photo 05/26/2018, Col-Nr. 4093, length of pocket knife is 9 cm: As most fossils in this formation, it was found in scree and float in a wooded area. Nr. 4093 is waiting near the pocket knife toward the lower right corner… Another Favosites styriacus, north of Fürstenstand Mt. (754 m), northwest of Graz, photo 10/30/2015, not in collection. Tabulae are very well visible, weathering is usually your friend there!
  3. eifelian fossils

    Hi, yesterday i found my first trilobites. They are from the french Eifelian : - 390 to - 380 Million of Years. Most of them are very fractioned and the rest is worn but i show here the more presentable ones. I guess they are phacopids. One phacopid mentionned in the geologic file is Phacops fecundus degener. But Asteropyge punctata is also mentionned. 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) I also Wonder what are the following specimen ? A)This one, to me, looks like a coral :
  4. Eifelian fieldtrip in Couvin

    Saturday 09/06/2018 the BVP ( read: local paleontology club ) organised a fieldtrip to the quarry of " La Couvinoise" next to the town of Couvin. Here we find Eifelian deposits (former Couvinian ) We had a very nice day with various finds and the whole day we had the background noise of a chorus of green frogs who had made their home in the large pound in the old part af the quarry. The site delivered a multitude of fossil corals and brachiopods and sometimes a gastropod or even a trilobite fragment. the start of the excurtion: Lumachelle of Stringocephalus burtuni: the frog pond in the quarry: the bottom of the quarry: some of the finds: large Atrypas: Sieberella: Calceola sandalina: A nice large favosites: And my girlfriend made the find of the day: the cephalon of a phacopid trilobite:
  5. Devonian coral from Resteigne

    Hi all, During my trip to Resteigne, I namely found this coral. Here is the location info: Resteigne quarry, Belgium Jemelle Formation (mostly) Eifelian, middle Devonian; ~ 390 mya Any possibility to name the species do you think? Thanks in advance for your replies! Max
  6. Devonian Coral? From Resteigne

    Hi all, On my trip to Resteigne last weekend, I namely found this thing. At first I thought it was some kind of coral, but others are having their doubts. So now me too! Here is the location info: Resteigne quarry, Belgium Jemelle Formation (mostly) Eifelian, middle Devonian; ~ 390 mya I started prepping it a little bit, and noticed that this matrix was a little bit softer than the other matrix... So maybe this is from another formation. If I remember correctly, this was one of the few finds from the second level (the levels of the quarry are ground, 1st, 2nd and 3rd level. So maybe the different levels indicate a different formation), opposed to the majority of other finds which were from the first level (and have a much harder matrix). So. What do you think it is? Looking forward to your answers! Max
  7. ID requested on Devonian problematica

    Hi all, As a new member, I would like to share with you all a few pictures I took from an Eifelian limestone I found last sunday near the Couvin area In Belgium. This area is well-know for the abundance of Devonian coral reefs, and it has been studied for many decades. Although I'm quite familiar with the fossils from this area, I found this odd looking specimen in situ. And I have no clue what it could be. Could somebody help me with the Identification? So, long story short: Location: Couvin (Belgium) Age: Devonian Stage: Eifelian Lithology: Limestone Facies: Marine coral reef ID: ? I hope some of you might help me with the Identification of this organism (Coral? Graptolith?, Algae? Bryozoan?) Greetings From Belgium Tony
