Two weeks ago, I visited the Carmeuse Calcite Quarry in Rogers City, Michigan (Devonian). I spent an hour trying to dig under and around this specimen. With the help of another, I was able to dislodge it. It weights about 60 pounds and the top surface measures 38 cm x 43 cm. Looks like a Hexagonaria pericarinita, though am not sure.
Looking for help on some fossils found today in Somerset County! In what appears to be Limestone. Photo #1, 2 and 3 are the same rock - A rugose coral (see internal structure.) One member thought Lithostrotion . #4 - At the bottom, looks like a tabulate coral? #5 - Coral?
Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelgill (Skelghyll) in Cumbria, Northern England. It seems to be a tabulate coral, but I can't find any listed for this location, only mentions of small, rare, rugose corals. It has the star shaped corallites of a Heliolitidid, but seems to be tightly packed together like a Favositidid. A couple of species of Palaeofavosites seem to be close and are a bit star-shaped,, but anyone know any better? @TqB@piranha hmm who else? The coral bit, an external mold, is a maximum of 3.5 cm across and each corallite up to 2 mm.
