  1. Hello! this is one of my weirdest things I have found at this location, I believe it might be a fragment from a fin spine? A piece from an Echinoid? Something else? I would love to know what it is and what species this came from! Some information on the area: Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Most likely from a member of the Iola Limestone What makes this one of the most bizarre fossils I have found is the circular pattern on the fossil itself, as I have not seen anything like this in the area before. backside Pictures in their natural file size: https://imgur.com/a/qUWY0gB
  2. Hello! I found these beautiful scales inside a calcium phosphate nodule from Muncie Creek Shale. I believe this fish regurgitation might have some identifiable scales and I would love to know if anyone can nail down an exact species! Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale The center scale is roughly 9mm long! Concretion with Size reference other half of the concretion other half rotated More images and in their natural size (Not compressed) https://imgur.com/a/pWKw9Vk
  3. Hello! I was recently opening my Muncie Creek Shale nodules and this beautiful collection of scales and bone fragments came out! I believe it is fish regurgitation. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale the middle scale is roughly 9mm long! other half of the concretion Outer view of the Concretion and size reference Images in their natural size (not compressed) https://imgur.com/a/pWKw9Vk
  4. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie creek shale Hello! I was hunting in one of my favorite spots and saw a very weird structure coming out of a Muncie Creek Shale nodule and what I think it could possibly be is a piece of crustacean exoskeleton! If I'm lucky that is! I am not exactly sure why I know its different but it does not look like crushed shells from other brachiopods in the area and looks to be layered horizontally. My personal theories: Weirdly preserved Brachiopod, Crustacean Exoskeleton, Natural formation that I have not seen in the area before or something else entirely. I would love to know any information and would love to use this as a learning experience! Size: 3.4cm Images in their natural sizes (Not compressed): https://imgur.com/a/8c3o4Jd
  5. Hello! I have been cracking open a few more concretions from Muncie Creek and I cracked open this bizarre fossil! I know braincases have been found in these nodules since I have found a braincase of Lawrenciella, and donated a braincase that was found to have parts of the upper jaw! My main reasoning for asking if this is a braincase is that it has a few bizarre structures I have not seen in other concretion fossils. The chance that it is an ordinary bone is very much a possibility. on the left you can see that there are these repeating structures Here is a more zoomed in image. Here is the image zoomed out for refrence. Below are images of the bizarre round patterns that are visible on the fossil Some general info on the area: Location: Missouri Timer period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale member Size refrence:
  6. Hello! I was cracking open some more phosphate nodules from the Muncie creek shale formation and had these stored in my room for a while! I was wondering if anyone could identify these very hard to determine fossils as I cannot tell if they contain bone fragments or if the fossils are from a coprolite! I think the one on the bottom right could be a either bone or coprolitic material More images of the specimen on the left which I believe is either fish excitement or fish vomit, I am unsure as I have found similar fossils to this inside some other nodules. Unsure what this one is as well! Any guess is welcomed! Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation is the Muncie Creek Shale member
  7. From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    Got lucky and found this while cracking open phosphatic nodules!
  8. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Specimen 1: Fish Coprolite? 1.8cm (nodule size) Specimen 2: Coprolite? 2cm (nodule size) Specimen 3: Fish Mandible? (2.6cm) Specimen 4: Coprolite or Maybe Braincase (I think it is very unlikely that it is) 2.8cm Nodule size 1.5cm (fossil size) Specimen 5: (2.9cm) Note: The placement of the fossilized material might be wrong as this was one of my first nodules and the fossilized material fell out. I recovered what I could. (Opened roughly 2 months ago) Specimen 6: Tessellated Cartilage with some Skin impressions ? (2.5cm) Specimine 7: Fish material? Thank you for reading and viewing this, I hope I can better understand these images so I can use them as references in the future!
  9. Location: Missouri Geological time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie creek shale I believe it is some sort of cartilage or fish material but I honestly have no clue.
  10. Concretion 13: Campodus tooth

    From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    One of a few teeth I have from Eugeneodontida
  11. Concretion 8: Possibly Gular Bone

    From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    Close up picture, identifications are welcomed!
  12. Concretion 7: Skin impression?

    From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    I believe the dark brown may indeed be skin while the blue part is cartilage.
  13. From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    One of my larger concretions, I find this one very interesting and plan to dig out the rest of it once I learn how to prep fossils from concretions!
  14. Concretion 6: Fish material

    From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    My best guess is fish material or crustacean material
  15. Concretion 5: Fish Cartilage

    From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    One of my larger concretions and personal favorites
  16. Concretion 4: Unidentified

    From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    I assume this is some sort of bone either from a fish or some sort of other specimen. It could be a spine of some sort but I am extremely doubtful
  17. Concretion 3: Braincase/Skull

    From the album Muncie Creek Shale Nodules

    Currently being donated and Identified. Will update on this specimen if this is a new species and its identification.
