  1. Mazon Concretion

    Hey all! Just bought this piece at a rock shop here in Chicago. It was sold to me as a shrimp, the shop owner was pretty confident in this, but I'm pretty sure it's a fern instead. Not disappointed since I just appreciate the composition here, it's a super pretty one, kind of off-beat. Can anybody help ID the exact fauna? Thanks so much!
  2. Corolla NC Shrimp?

    Corolla NC beach. I danced and jumped for joy, no regrets. Shrimp? Age? Anything you can figure out? I am blown away, as we get crab pieces, coral and sea Robin skull plates .. but nothing like this in 30 years.
  3. Callianassid burrows

    @GeschWhat @Carl It has been cold, but the shrimp (callianassid) coprolite burrows I find have been relatively plentiful (more than decent sized shark teeth) with recent strong north winds and low tides. One puzzle to me is the variation in diameter of the burrows. Carl, our expert, believes the coprolites just sank and deposited in burrows (at another site I have found a few steinkerns with similar, sparser deposits. ) All of the burrows I have found on the Rapp beach have been cylindrical, or possibly pieces of cylinders (of course, this could be bias in my collecting, but I examine lots of stuff!) Usually the coprolite deposits are thicker on one side (the bottom?) of the burrow. If the burrows are truly made by the callianassids (Carl says no, others may argue) I expect the coprolites in the big burrows to be bigger than those in the smaller burrows. I have collected enough to get a tentative answer, but need to align by brightness for comparison photos (some burrows and coprolites are very light, some are dark). Here is what I have collected so far:

  5. Mazon ID Help

    Having trouble making an ID on this one, unmarked in an old collection. I'm hoping that someone will recognize it instantly! My guess: Acanthotelson.
  6. Shrimp?

    I’m not sure what I’m looking at is it a fossil? Is it a Deteriorated fossil. If it is a fossil, how should I proceed? Posting other pics in comments.
  7. Once a year i head for the East Yorkshire coast to Reighton beach which is North west of the Flamborough heritage coast UK, as you walk south on this beach it becomes Speeton Sands (beach) this is where you can find the Lower Cretaceous shrimp Meyeria ornata. This is the one i found this year it is a bit one sided so this is a photo of it's best side. Meyeria ornata Cheers John
  8. A few weeks ago, I posted asking for advice on splitting fish for Green River. Your advice helped me out A TON, so thank you for that . I ended up leaving with a shrimp, crawdad, 3 Pharo's, 8 Amphiplagas, both species of Hypsiprisca, and many more. But by sheer luck, we ended up finding a bird, which means, we're going back to Wyoming for a CT scan.(And for more splitting) According to Arvid, the bird appears to be a new species, slightly dis-articulated, but it still has it's skull. I'll post pictures of our finds when I get a chance, but I wanted to thank everyone that gave me advice.
  9. Advice For Getting a Shrimp Prepped?

    I found a shrimp at the American Quarry of the Greenriver Formation, and was wondering if someone knew of somebody that has done this kind of work before so I can get it prepped. Thanks in advance!
  10. Mazon Creek Fossils - ID Help

    Hi everyone - I need some help identifying a few of the Mazon Creek fossils my father and I found over the last two years. I will first apologize for the blurriness of the images, I must have had something on my lens. But, I can take more if necessary (just not today!). Here's the link to the images: https://imgur.com/a/yRaND6K I have three plants, something that's just parallel lines, and something that looks like a shrimp. Any help would be appreciated!
  11. Was out near Canyon Lake today and found these oddities. I think my expectations are overreaching my reality, but I sure would like these to be something other than just something boring, like worm burrows.....sorry worm burrows, no disrespect. Any help is appreciated! Crab Claws? Shrimp? Brittle Star Arms? Seriously...I know these are probably worm burrows, but hey, a girl can hope..... t
  12. I was given this around Christmas. It had a gray "dusty" coating. Upon cleaning/prepping it now looks like this. Here's what makes me question it's authenticity...notice the gray matter down the middle and at the tip. Your thoughts?
  13. Please help with id and how to proceed.

    Hello to all fellow fossil lovers. Ok I found this at the Lincoln formation in porter wa. At first I tried to relieve it from its cast by striking it with a hammer. Then I soaked it In Vinager and chipped away at it. I decided that I would ruin it if I continued. I froze it and thawed about 4 times. The end fell off as you can see. Is this a lobster or shrimp? How do I finish exposing it?
  14. The Palaeocast podcast released a very interesting episode on Decapods with Dr Carrie Schweitzer of Kent State University. http://www.palaeocast.com/decapods/
  15. Shrimp

    Check out these neat little shrimp I just prepped out. Little more clean up and they will be done. Shout out to RBJ for supplying the fossils.
  16. fossils i need to get id for

    You already read the title so lets start: (all of these were bought) Brittlestar? No idea what species this could be. Fossil shrimp, possibly carponanus? Fossil fish found behind shrimp fossil. possibly Knightia? Fossil leaf. again no idea what this type of leaf.
  17. Two Mazon Shrimp or Shrimp and Molt?

    Hi all, Can someone tell me whether I'm looking at a shrimp that was in the process of molting? Thanks! ~Paul
  18. Successful Freeze Thaw 2

    One of my freezer concretions split to reveal this ghostly image. I believe it is a shrimp and was wondering if anyone knew what kind it might be. I was pleasantly surprised to find it as the top and bottom of the rock had broken off and didn't have any fossil inside. I put it back in the freezer anyway since it appeared to have another layer to split. I am starting to wonder if I should get some of my rejects out of my garden border where I have been putting them.
  19. Holiday finds

    Found this perfect Speeton Shrimp in the first 5 mins of my holiday ! then a new find for me is this Lobster which i need to put a name to yet both finds are from Speeton on the Yorkshire coast UK. Meyeria Ornata (Speeton Shrimp) Lobster and the Meyeria Ornata Cheers John
  20. As I was putting together labels with photos containing microscopic images of inclusions in coprolites, I came across something that I may have misidentified as a fish tail and vertebrae in a very small coprolite. After looking at it again, the tail looks more like a shrimp or crawfish tail than that of a fish. What I thought were fish vertebrae, look more like crustacean arm joints/elements. Can anyone please confirm this for me? Thanks a bunch! Formation: Oxford Clay (Jurassic - Callovian) Location: Orton Pit, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England
  21. Lebanon Shrimp or Lobster?

    This was labeled to be a Carpopenaeus sp. shrimp from Lebanon. I had a sneaking suspicion that it may not actually be a shrimp, but perhaps a lobster because of what appears to be claws so I purchased it. I was looking for second opinions on this fossil and will try to update with a closer look when it comes in (shipping is overseas and will take a while though).
  22. Squashed Mazon Creek Crustacean?

    This is another piece from the Mazon Creek Chowder Flats site, it was shattered into quite a few pieces, but I was able to reassemble it. However, I can't tell what it is. I am certain it is some kind of crustacean, based on the texture and color of the shell and the presence of a long segmented antenna. But it seems to be rather flattened, and I can't make out many other details. There does appear to a segmented piece extending from the top edge of the blob to the edge of the nodule, but I can't make out any clear segments or limbs. The shape is reminiscent of Mamayocaris, perhaps just a poorly preserved one? The only other Essex Fauna crustacean that seems to roughly match the squat shape is the rare Dithyrocaris.
  23. Carbon Film Plant/Arthopod?

    Does anyone know what this fossil is? It might be a pseudo fossil. It was found in Liberty, MO, USA. Pennsylvanian. Fossils found near it include crinoids, shells, and other marine life.
  24. Ever hear of the Fiji Mermaid?

    I found this Kallidecthes richardsoni Saturday at Mazon. It's preserved in the "life position" which is rare. But also it's tail is turned and fanned out from the dorsal side, which gives this quite the "fiji mermaid" look. This was my best find of the day (that was open) and my best example of this species so far. Also there is an eye stalk present which is a bit strange. I didn't think this species had eye stalks. Jack @fiddlehead have you seen eye stalks in this species before? And have you ever seen this tail fan preservation before?
