Hi all, I have been having some trouble with this specimen. It came from a large collection of Mazon pieces I purchased a number of years back from collector Ron Brandt of Normal, Illinois, who self-collected and also purchased several extensive collections from others. Originally it was identified by someone (too far in the past) as an egg sac of some sort, but after some discussion with someone I would consider an expert, a fellow named Dan Damrow, who some of you may know, some doubt has been cast on that identification. I would be interested in any comments or insights you may have. Thanks, Paul
I found this on a rock pile on an upstate (Palmyra area) New York farm. Glacial drumlins run north south. I have no training or experience infossil id but my biology background sees a nut/seed pod or a larvae/cocoon. Teardrop on one end and attachment? on the other. Can you help me id this?
I just found this little guy tonight. It's about 1/2"x1/4" and tappers down. It's overall shape looks like a clam. I have some ideas from Jack's Flora book, but nothing 100%. Any help is appreciated. Thanks for looking. Side shot Top view in matrix Micro shot of top hinge point Micro shot of texture
