  1. Decorah Shale

    Earlier today, I posted a collection of fossils from the Decorah Shale from NE Iowa. I do have a few questionable ones that I need opinions of. 1. This seems geological but is very odd. Thoughts of what it is are welcome. 2. Bryozoan encrusted gastropod? 3. Is this bryozoan or sponge? 4. This big "glob" sits atop a slab of matrix. I am perplexed.
  2. My last Decorah Shale Trip.

    This will likely be my last trip to the Decorah Shale this season. I thought I would post some finds that were still in the matrix that they were found in. Many fossils of the Decorah are found separated from the rock they were hidden in. I just like fossils in matrix!!! With that said, the first picture is not in matrix. It shows a cephalopod with a Sowerbella brachiopod within it. Someone (I can't remember who) posted a similar item and I had remarked how many cephalopods have other fossils within the body chambers. Here is an example. I hope that person sees this. Secondly, @DMcLY posted a picture of a Strophomena hash plate this week. I think these pictures show the inside of the concave pedicle valve showing the muscle attachment and the exterior surface of it. It may help you visualize what you found. Now the rest are just for enjoyment:
  3. Decorah Shale Trilobite Cephalon???

    Couldn't help myself yesterday and returned to an outcrop of the Decorah Shale, Ordovician in NE Iowa. Found many nice specimens. (Adam, I may need to substitute some of my current finds with what is in your package) Here is something that perplexes me. I thought it was a partial trilobite cephalon/ genial spine but after looking at the species mentioned to occur in the formation, I struck out. Sooooo can anyone provide an identification? Thanks!!!!! Mike
  4. Last week was a tough week as I tried to stay home as much as possible. On top of the Corona situation, a snow storm dumped 9 inches of heavy wet snow on us. The rain/ snow line was only 30 miles south of us so after looking out on the white landscape for days, I was ready to see green grass again. A decision was made to trek south for the day and enjoy spring again, but with no human interaction. I had wanted to look at a road cut that was discovered on Google-earth this winter and thought this would be a great opportunity. So I was up and on my way early the next morning, leaving the snow just as the sun began to peak above the horizon. The drive through this country is always beautiful. Gently rolling hills with an agricultural community that still is mostly "family farm". The road cut that was explored is shown next, exposing the Stewartville member of the Galena Formation, Ordovician. Road cuts that expose this layer are always nice to explore in the spring. The face is very crumbly and it is obvious in the next picture where the new exposures are hopefully revealing a fresh crop of fossils. Next are some photos showing the fossils hidden in the cliff face. One must be careful not to overlook the sloughed rock at the base of the exposure. Not always are the fossils easily extracted as is shown here!! That is why a bottle of superglue is ALWAYS in my pocket. Almost as important as my rock pick.
  5. Fisherite babies??

    Awhile ago, I posted some unknown recepticulites and didn't receive a definitive identification. Since then I cleaned up a fisherite which had a central protrusion on it. My mind went back to the unknowns and I semi convinced myself that these are "baby" fisherites and that the large "sunflower" head comes with age. The unknowns were about the size of the protrusion on this fisherite. Here are pictures of both. For all you wise paleontologists out there, is my theory plausible??? The babies: The adult:
  6. Epibiont????

    Was going to dispose of this brachiopod when I noticed what looked like some sort of epibiont on it. Any thoughts and possible ID??? Thanks, Mike
  7. Ordovician Unknown

    I need help with another specimen that popped out of the Ordovician matrix I was busting up last week. I have NO clue as to what this is, or if it is even a fossil. I have split literally a ton of matrix on this roadcut and have not seen this before:
