Garkersaur posted a topic in Fossil IDI found these fossils beneath a steel rail bridge in Maryland near the 4 locks of the C & O. You can find it. I think they may be Silurian, and are mostly brachiopods, including an adult brachiopod. Observe the fleshy muscle material in the center. Observe the 3 parasite wormy animals at the upper left. I think this was an old Brachiopod near death: It was infected with wormy parasites. Its muscle flesh was infected with a fungus that brought in sulfur in to react with the Iron in the water, creating pyrite which is yellow in the fossil. 400mya, the only yellow mineral was pyrite, Iron + Sulfur. This is how a senior paleozoic brachiopod dies. Observe. Out of respect, I am giving this animal the name Jesse, after my Grandfather. Jesse died of old age and we salute him.
