matgerke posted a topic in Fossil IDI'm not sure whether this is the right forum to ask this, but it's sort of a fossil ID question. I was hunting in a road cut in what I think is the ithaca formation (early upper Devonian), and there were almost no fossils at all -- except for a single very thin layer that was pretty much all fossil (see photo). There were a TON of these big death plates lying around, and absolutely no other fossils that I could find. Weird. I was wondering if anyone had seen this layer and could tell me when it was and how it happened. (Mud slide, maybe?). Alternatively, if someone can identify the brachiopods here, that might help pinpoint the series. Thanks for your help, Matt
Found this in the scree of a road cut in what I think is the Ithaca Formation (early upper Devonian). It's a bunch of overlapping crinoid stems, right? There is a quarter sitting on top of the rock for scale. Thanks in advance, Matt
