Samurai posted a topic in Fossil IDHello! 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
Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Probably apart of the Raytown limestone member Found this weird fossil on my latest fossil hunting trip, I personally believe it to be some sort of Amminoid since the pattern seems to extend away from the shell and not towards it, but I have only found Nautiloids in the area ( Only 2 spiral shaped specimens that do not look like this and 3 cone shaped.) If anyone can Identify if this is a an Ammonoid or something else I would love to know more! the middle Section with the weird ball like pattern in the middle and what I assume are gas chambers around it
