Just joint and wanted to get my first entry in. This middle Pennsylvanian concretion from Mazon Creek, was discovered in 2015 in pit 2, in an area I call Ivy Ridge thanks to all the Poison Ivy in the area. The finger near the top right should be where the shark emerged. I did not find this shark egg case variety posted. I hope this helps in future identification. Eventually I will be getting the measurement blocks. Shark Egg Case Phylum: Chordata Class: Chondrichthyes Palaeoxyris multiplicatum Horseshoe crab Phylum: Arthopoda Superclass: Chelicerata Class: Merostomata Order: Xiphosura Euproops danae
GeschWhat posted a topic in Fossil IDHi all, I just acquired this interesting specimen that was identified by the seller as Helicodromites mobilis. However, when trying to verify this, the images and description I've been able to find really don't seem to match. The whorls on this are flat and attached to the core. To me, it looks more like a cast of a shark egg case. Are any of you familiar with H. mobilis? Thoughts? Thanks for taking a look!
