In October 2020 I went to Watton Cliff for my first foray into microfossil hunting. I have since dissolved some of the matrix I collected in 20% acetic acid and one of the things I found, amongst all of the crinoid pieces is this. I'm not sure what it is but I'm guessing it's part of a fish. Are the rings visible on the reverse side annual growth rings? The sample I collected from Watton Cliff is from a loose sandy layer within the Forest Marble and is Bathonian in age. Thanks for giving it a look, as I sort and take more pictures I may post more of what I've found. Ther
Hello everyone, Here is a fossil I found earlier which I think is a scute. Am I right? If so, what did it belong to? It was found in the forest marble formation of Dorset, England and is bathonian, Jurassic in age. It measures 2 by 1 cm. in the last photo, it is the bottom right. Also does anyone know what the fish tooth belonged to. (Middle bottom). thanks in advance
