  1. Is this a stromatolite?

    Is this sample from northcentral Indiana a stromatolite? Thanks in advance!
  2. Are these bryozoans?

    Are these two samples (from northcentral IN) bryozoans? The first image is 18 cm x 12 cm; the second is egg-shaped, same dimensions but has a dome. Thanks!
  3. syringopora or organ pipe coral

    I had thought syringopora and organ pipe coral were synonymous. However, I just read otherwise. How do I tell the difference? See attached photo of a fossil that's about 1 in./2.5 cm. I presumed it to be organ pipe coral. Is it? Thx!
  4. Happy New Year all!!! I just want to share some photos of an Eucalyptocrinus Crinoid Holdfast plate I prepped six years ago. It's from the Waldron Shale Formation, Shelby County, Indiana. It's from the Silurian period, 424 million years ago.
  5. Bryozoan guesses

    I occasionally pick up a few bryozoan when hunting for "fossils", but they must have something about them that are intriguing. These two specimens caught my eye and were collected from a road cut in southern Indiana. There is Kope overlain by Belleview, Ordovician. After studying possible bryozoan that match, I am not sure of an ID. So let me know your thoughts. Mike First: Second:
  6. Last week, I was walking along a creek in Indiana close to where nice crinoids are often found. There in the water was what appeared to be a nice crinoid crown. After snatching it out of the cold water, I placed it in a safe place for my drive home. After arriving back in Minnesota, I spent close to an hour trying to identify it. No ID was able to be determined, so I decided to photograph it and ask for help on the Fossil Forum. Here it is, and by the way, I don't need help anymore with an ID. The solution came to me as I was editing my photographs. I must be honest, I photo shopped the last picture as to hide the solution to it's identity. Now the real picture. And yes I am blushing as I post this, knowing I had been fooled and admitting it to the world. I better make an appointment for the Eye Doctor!!
  7. Two Brachiopods to help ID

    After a Thanksgiving visit to Cincinnati, I took the time to explore a few rock cuts on the way back to snowy Minnesota. Here are two curiosities that I found in a creek bed in Indiana. I was in Ordovician, Richmond Formation at the break between Whitewater and Liberty. 1. A tiny brachiopod. 2. Inarticulate brachiopod?? If so, can it be identified?
  8. Help Id'ing Crawfordsville Crinoid

    Hello, I recently unpacked from an old collection this crinoid specimen from Crawfordsville Indiana. I would appreciate any help identifying species. The slab measures 13 x 14 cm, the detail is 7 x 6 cm. Thank you!
  9. until
    Show Flier Show times (Eastern Time Zone): Friday = 10am-5pm Saturday = 10am-5pm Sunday = 12am-4pm Hope to see some TFF folks there!
  10. The KYANA Geological Society is hosting their annual mineral, gem, and fossil show next weekend (Nov. 22-24). I attended last year and it is a small, but fun event. I’m not sure which day I will be there, but I plan to take the family. Just passing along the information in case anyone is in the Louisville area and would like to attend. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, I will come back with a full trip report. http://www.kyanageo.org/showflier.htm
  11. Tristate Trilobite Hunt

    Hi all, This week I'm heading to the tristate area (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky) for a trilobite hunting trip. It's unusual for me insofar as it's being run by my university. Usually I do my own recon, but since I don't really know where I'll be going (I assume we'll be visiting fairly well known localities), I was wondering if ya'll could help me out. I'm trying to figure which sites are famous in the area, and which layers to look in at those sites etc. I'd appreciate any info or advice! I'll be sure to return the favor by posting a full trip report when I get back.
  12. Looks reptilian to me

    1.5” X 1.0” tapers to blunt point. Structures up close with microscope are fantastic. the fractals And repetition scream complex multi cell but I have been duped many times by rock before. I don’t see how this couldn’t be flesh fossilized but hey. Found in southern Indiana, but in commercial river rock.
  13. Egg or fake

    Found in river rock southern Indiana. Fossil or stone?
  14. Indiana Ordovician Bivalve ID

    Over the weekend I found this bivalve while collecting at the St. Leon, Indiana roadcut. I posted it in the Hunting Trip section, but received no ID on this piece, so I figured that I would put it here to see if some Member could give me an ID. I have never found one like this before nor can I find a similar one while checking various web pages. Thanks
  15. encrusted stone

    I plucked this from Cherry Creek in Winona Lake, IN, and am wondering what is encrusting the stone. Thx!
  16. My son found several, hopefully, fossils in Sugar Creek in Turkey Run park in Indiana. He would like to know if they actually are fossils and of what. We are pretty sure the first one is a tooth. But have no clue about the other ones. Tree bark? Some sort of plant? Thank you for any help.
  17. Fossil or cool rock?

    Is this a fossil?
  18. Is this a brachiopod?

    I was wondering if this is a brachiopod. Thx!
  19. Hello. These two specimens were discovered in Southern Indiana in a wooded area with a nearby spring. A tentative ID was given as a Rugosa (horn) coral but someone else thought it could be petrified wood. If it is a horn coral then are these two pieces from a mid-section hence whey the conical property is not apparent? I appreciate any and all feedback.
  20. Concretion associated with limestone

    Hi, I found this concretion near a Bloomington construction site associated with a pile of limestone rip-rap. It was already broken and I didn't find any other pieces in the area. It looks like it might contain a fossil. What do others think and how should I proceed with it?
  21. Quartz fossil

    Hi, I found some interesting rocks in some gravel near downtown Indianapolis. Photo with the ruler is in inches, sorry to the rest of the world. Thanks in advance!
  22. Rock formation or fossil?

    This is a large rock formation I found in forested area near my cabin in Perry County Indiana about 15 miles from the Ohio River. It has what seems like steel plates on the surface of some of the rock formation, which measures about 10 feet by 7 feet and about 3 to 4 feet high. There is a white-ish crystalized substance on the surface of some of the plates which seems very hard, not lichen-like or easily scratched off the surface. It seemed unusual to me, so I cleaned it off and dug it out a bit to reveal more of the surface. Hoping someone might have an idea what this is. I am a new member and very inexperienced in fossil and geology identification. Thanks for any input.
  23. Indiana roadcut legality

    I'm looking to visit a few road cuts in Indiana this month, including St. Leon and a few around Bloomington. I've read differing accounts here about the legality of collecting on roadcuts in Indiana. Would anyone be able to clear it up?
  24. Presumably, having been tumbled along the robustness of the Knob Creek's quartz bearing country rock of the Hoosier National Forest in the Bartlettsville (North Lawrence Co.) IN area, the tip of the Crown (Calyx) of this large Crinoid appears to have been sheered off at some point to give the observer a view (in crossection) of the inside of calyx which reveals absolutely nothing but Silica replacement of all internal parts. This sample is of the Harrodsburg Formation in the Sanders Group, Lower Middle Mississippian Time.
  25. Fossilized Bone?

    I found both of these bones within a foot of each other poking out of the surface of a creek beside my house (I live in North West Indiana). They both seem to pass the burn test and tap test, although this is my first time finding potentially ancient bone, so I'm not certain that they are fossilized. Could anyone more experienced confirm that these are fossilized? Or recommend any other tests?
