turtlefoot posted a topic in Fossil IDI am assuming that this feature is just geology, but I would like a second opinion on this if possible. My eyes do wonders at seeing what I want to see instead of what is actually there. Thank you. This was found in Douglas County, Missouri, USA in the Roubidoux Formation. The feature in question measures 84x31mm. The host rock is 20x12.5cm. It was found near a seasonal creek bed where gastropods, rugose coral and crinoids have been found. Numerous trace fossils have been found in the area also. Thank you for your time and help.
turtlefoot posted a topic in Fossil IDI am really trying to learn my common invertebrate fossils. Can someone, once again, confirm my tenative identification, or correct me? I really appreciate it. The fossil in question is this oval fossil. After doing some research my guess is it is a crinoid of some sort. I am guessing that the little "nipple" in the center of the oval is where the normal hole is, but why does it have a line disecting the oval into two distinct parts? If it is not a crinoid, can someone please tell me what I am looking at, and where I went wrong on my identification? Thanks, Doug
