  1. what kind of worm trails are these ?

    hi this is matt again today in the creek I found a fossil full of worm trails does anyone know what they are ?
  2. Trace Fossils from Miocene Potomac

    Hi, longtime lurker first time poster here. I was wondering if you guys can help me ID this concretion my family found years ago near Calvert. I believe it might be a trace fossil of some kind, possibly a burrow or tunnel. I have found similar types at Westmoreland State Park. I can upload pictures from different angles if needed. Any suggestions of what it could be?
  3. Tree roots and a Worm?

    Found this rock today hiking with the kids. Never really been much into fossils but man this was interesting. Started thinking about how old it might be and if there's anything else that I'm not seeing due to my lack of knowledge. Came across this site so thought I would post it . Found in Niagara Bruce Trail in Ontario Canada...Rock was probably 14"-16 by 10" by 8" deep.
  4. 518 mya in the Cambrian period, a worm like creature named Facivermis ("torch worm") adapted to a tube dwelling lifestyle that lost it's need for it's lower limbs. This article describes how Facivermis is the earliest known animal to lose body parts ('secondary loss'). They also place Facivermis as a Lobopodian. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/02/200227114446.htm The journal article can be found here for anyone interested (open access) - https://www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(20)30119-6?_returnURL=https%3A%2F%2Flinkinghub.elsevier.com%2Fretrieve%2Fpii%2FS0960982220301196%3Fshowall%3Dtrue
  5. Acquired one in 2018, which I believe it should be a Calvapilosa kroegeri, or the 'armored worm'. Any ideas on this ID? Related link: https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/feb/06/newly-discovered-slug-looks-like-a-hairy-toe-and-could-reveal-the-ancestry-of-molluscs-calvapiloa-kroegeri

  7. Worm Fossil

    I have a couple of what appear to be worm fossils - can anyone shed any light on them? Found inside a slate/stone slab that I split. Northern UK about 3.5 inches long
  8. Fish Poo ?

    Can anyone tell me if this a fish coprolite ? Its from SE North Carolina, mostly cretaceous but some eocene mixed in. Peedee form. and Castle Hayne form. The wormy pattern is flat not round like the worms I am use to seeing. Its 1 cm long. Any ideas ? Thanks.
  9. Crinoid stem or segmented worm?

    This is not a fossil that I am familiar with, but I have done some research and it looks a bit like a crinoid stem? The segments seem fatter than the stems I saw online, but that was as close as I came... Could it be a bryozoan segment? I didn't see any of those online that matched it, either... Found in Huntsville, AL, where I usually find fossiliferous limestone with crinoids and fenestellen bryozoan fossils. Thanks! Ramona
  10. More unidentified MC fossils

    So we have yet another unidentified mazon creek fossil. I see two possible specimens here but I’m not convinced either are proper fossils or even what they could be. The larger one looks like wood to me, and the smaller one looks darker and oddly shaped. I first thought maybe a flat worn?
  11. I have read that land worm fossil are extremely rare but how about marine worm fossils? Are marine worm fossils as rare as land worms and has anyone every seen photos or heard of a marine worm that might have a calcium-like outer shell?? Thanks
  12. Scalarituba

    Nice example of Scalarituba found yesterday as float in NE Ohio. I would like others to confirm my identification. Thank you!
  13. Worm tube

    Hi guys I was just wondering what this is as I recently received as an extra of something that I bought and I have no idea what it is and no information whatsoever, worm tube?
  14. Dear TFF Members, today this piece arrived from a seller, who unfortunately didn't know either the correct ID of the fossils, or the age - the only thing he knew in respect of the specimen was that it comes from the South of England. He suggested it's a water worm, but I would like a more precise ID. On the front of the rock - apart from the potential "worm" - there are also numerous trilobite tails. And on the back - an imprint of a snail? ammonite? , two parts of something that looks like shell and a chain of something? Absolutely no idea, what it could be . Please help me Front of specimen: With a flash: Close-ups of trilobites' tails:
  15. Tube in rock ID?

    Snow is just melting but in the mean time I've split open one of the larger rocks I took home and discovered a new little guy. Probably a twig. If not it could be a tube worm. You can see brachiopods around on this rock, I do know it was a shallow Eocene ocean 50 million years ago. So let me know what you all think. Maybe its just a stick or maybe something more interesting Thanks for you time - John
  16. Unknown Chengjiang Microfossils

    I was splitting a piece of shale from one of the formations that holds the Chengjiang biota, and found quite a few of these small things. They're no more than 2 mm in length and to the naked eye, look like small red lines. The pictures below were taken at 4x magnification (first picture above is one specimen, latter three are another specimen). First thought was some segmented worm, but I'm not super convinced. Any ideas?
  17. worm?? or???

    found this small stone with what seems to be a worm on it ... is there such thing as a worm fossil? I have heard of worm castings but this is different. the last three pics are a closer view. gravel load from brazos river west of houston texas
  18. Hi friends, I have several of these fossils. I think they look like some sort of worm fossil but can't find anything on the internet similar for comparison. I really don't think it is trilobite tracks because it is deeper. Sorry, I could only get 2 of my pictures to upload. Thanks so much, I would really appreciate any info.
  19. The Great Dancing Worms

    I found this newspaper article linked to the Wikipedia page about the Tully Monster. A fascinating tale about the discovery of extant Tully Monsters, dangerous creatures that like to dance and share milk. Enjoy. https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1499&dat=19680618&id=jRkqAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ESgEAAAAIBAJ&pg=5277,5081896
  20. screw-shaped, chamberless cephalopod?

    Hey! I was looking for native artifacts in a neighbourhood creek when I came across what I thought was a somewhat large cephalopod fossil. The creek is in Louisville Kentucky, leading to Floyd’s Fork. From the USGS Mapview, it looks like it’s Ordovician of the Drake’s formation. Either Bardstown member or Saluda Dolomite member. Upon further examination, I saw that the ridges on the sides were angled very steeply. It was very covered by matrix, so I decided to get to work on it with a dremel tool. After getting a significant amount of material off the fossil, I found that the ridges along the side were not in fact bilaterally symmetrical, and rather that these ridges went down the length of it, spiraling like they would on a screw. It is hollow, partially filled in with some softer, red stone and crystallized on the inside. From what I can tell, it has a curve to it reminding me of cyrtoconic(?) cephalopods. I read somewhere that cephalopods are bilaterally symmetrical, so I decided to post this here since I now don’t have any better guesses on what it is. My only other thoughts are that shark coprolites can be spiral shaped, and that it seems too smooth and hollowed to be a horn coral. My heads buzzing about this. Mum said it could be a unicorn horn . Due to upload limits, I will be adding a couple more photos below. I could not find any other fragments of the fossil besides this one section.

  23. Mississippian Worm? Missouri

    From the Mississippian time period. Found in Boone County, MO in a creek bed. It measures approximately 1/2 an inch. I may be reaching to think it’s a worm, but I’m new to identifying my own fossil finds, so please don’t make fun! Included are two photos, with and without flash. Thanks in advance for your help.
  24. Worm like fossils, crinoids?

    I found what look like worm fossils among a bunch of crinoid fossils and a few shells. Could you explain what these are? They seem much larger than the crinoid fossils. Seems like one end of the worm and the other end. I found smaller ones of one end, like knob ends.
