  1. 0263C3DD-5794-4D95-9461-FAB9954EBCCC.jpeg

    From the album Lower Devonian Helderberg Group in Eastern NY

    Fenestella crebipora from the New Scotland Formation.
  2. I am studying a tiny area of a fossiliferous limestone rock from our yard and trying to determine the different items in it. The fan shaped item in the lower left corner didn't really look like the fenestella bryozoa that I am used to seeing, so I did a bit of research. I found a page with a similar image and was wondering if I am correct (or even close) in identifying that particular item as a cheilostome? Here is the page I was looking at: https://www.researchgate.net/figure/A-sample-of-bryozoa-sand-sample-number-71-from-a-depth-of-130-m-on-the-Lacepede-Shelf_fig1_238417060. Would the fenestella bryozoa be seen next to the cheilostomes? And what about the little flower like item that is above and to the right of the fan shaped item? It's kind of hard to see - I can circle it if needed. This area covered by this image is approximately 2cm across. That is what caught my eye - how tiny the fan shaped item was. This rock is from Huntsville, AL. Thanks guys and gals!!
  3. I am trying to wrap my head around what these things looked like in "real life" so I can recognize them better. This is a limestone rock with what I think are fenestella bryozoan fossils, found in Huntsville, AL. Mississipian age. This photo is looking down at what I call the "top" of the rock. The next photo will be from the side, looking at the same area but from the "inside" of the rock. Can anyone point me to a site where I might find a diagram of these to better help me understand what they looked like? Thanks! Ramona
  4. This is my first post in the Fossil ID section - I am SO excited to find this resource! A have found a few very helpful folks in other places, but this group is a huge wealth of information! A bit of background - we moved into a house just outside of the city limits of Huntsville, AL, a couple of months ago. After finding a couple of fossils laying around in the yard, I decided to investigate the wooded area at the back of our property a bit more. Whoa!!! There is a creek bed on the property and the closer you walk to the creek the more rocks you have to walk over. Every single rock I picked up had some kind of fossil in it. The sides of the creek have rocks embedded in them, too. It seems like someone may have looked around a bit in the past (found a small pile of rocks) but many (MANY) of these rocks are in their natural state. Most of them, in fact. It seems overwhelming to me, but I have been delving into understanding the treasures I am finding. I don't understand all of the classification systems, but I found a place online that seems to indicate that we are in the Mississipian Age? The rocks which have been identified so far are all limestone, so I am assuming this one is limestone as well. The soil is VERY red (someone called it ochre red?) and some of it always remains on the rocks after I clean them. The fossils that have been identified so far are fenestella, bryzoan, crinoid. And I think the word fossiliferous was also used? I am a photographer by trade and macro photography is my FAVORITE, so I will post plenty of photos. This particular rock is a very small one compared to most of them. It is also harder than the other ones I have worked with - less "crumbly". The first couple of photos are of the top and the bottom of the rock, to get a general idea of the size and shape of it. The rest of the images are close ups of various areas. Any and all input is appreciated! Is it common to find an area like this where rocks such as this one are very abundant? From what I can tell these are all common fossils, but a great springboard for learning! Hints on how to clean and store the rocks appreciated, too, since there are so very many of them? Thanks!! Ramona
  5. Fenestella? Bryozoa of some type?

    Tonight I found a new limestone ledge sitting 6 inches from a stream water level. My father and I started hammering away at the shallow edges and removed a ton of interesting specimens. While there were some nice cephalopods, lots of brachiopods and clams, this piece caught my eye. I’ve read about Bryozoa and I’ve seen similar things on fossil plates. I believe I remember seeing pieces of them in limestone while digging, but never anything big. So, is it a Fenestella? Or something else? I’ve never found one worth showing. I saw a species list for it and it is very long.
  6. Fenestella plebeia

    A small colony surrounded by Archaeocidaris debris. It shows the obverse side , i.e. the side with pores. It is preserved on the top face of a thin limestone lens that was overlain by shale. This is the most common fenestrate bryozoan in this area but the majority of specimens are found in shale and rarely split to show the obverse as it is the "stickier" side due to the pores.
