With the Belgian Asociation for Paleontology we made an excursion to the quarry at Soignies. The rock exists out of mixing layers of hard limestone and softer claystone. The quarry is rich in carboniferous fauna with corals, brachiopods and two species of trilobites. When entering the quarry we were welcomed by a young peregrine falcon who was flying next to the high stone wall, which was awesome. It was beautiful weather and the quarry contains a variety of fossils. I'm happy I was able to collect a diversity of organisms that represent the Tournaisian periode. I also found more trilobites on this day than in my whole carreer as a fossil hunter... I found exactly two pieces Caninia sp. (Michelin, 1840) Cummingella belisama (HAHN, HAHN & BRAUCCKMANN, 1985) Leptaena analoga (Phillips, 1836) Michelina favosa (Goldfuss, 1826) Calcite? Cummingella belisama (HAHN, HAHN & BRAUCCKMANN, 1985)
Hello, Yesterday we went on a fieldtrip to the carbinoferous of Soignies Belgium, see other topic: I had the luck on my side and found 2 shark teeth. Helodus and/or Psammodus? So this morning i started the preparation I forgot to take pictures at the start of the prepp of this one There was only a little glimp to see at this one, so i was pleasantly surprised The second one (it's a huge one) i started but not finished yet
Today we had a fieldtrip organised by our local paleontology club to one of the quarries of Soignies in Belgium. Here they exploit the dense limestone full with crinoid particles. Althought the weather forcast predicted rain, we had a very beautyful and dry day Natalie made her best find after 10 minutes in the quarry, she spotted a huge Helodus sp. tooth in the rubble. the rest of the prospection that day delivered a few trilobite parts, isolated pygidiums and cephalons for us, but a few lucky collectors did fint complete specimens. We had also the oportunity to meet an other TFF member @gigantoraptor
Hell All I was going through some micro-matrix from the quarry in Soignies when I found this tiny object. I'm not sure it's a fossil but I wanted to check and it seems to be too symmetrical to be geologic. The piece is 2,5 mm in size. It's found in marine deposits togheter with crinoid parts, trilobites... It's from the Tournaisian (Carboniferous). What do you all think? Picture one shows one side and the second picture the opposite side. It's round and nearly perfectly symmetrical. Thanks already
