  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Seller's Mazon IDs

    Can anyone tell me whether this seller has these IDs right? I figured the first one looks like an Achistrum (sea cucumber) to me. The seller has others that I have questions about too but won't post them all. @RCFossils ?
  12. Wenlock Weirdies.

    Hello, everybody! I have been sorting through my wenlock limestone material, Middle Silurian and have a couple of personal problematica. I am wondering if any of you brilliant folks could help me out. Here is an object which seems to be an epibiont on a Favosites coral. 5 mm long and about 1.5 mm diameter at the widest. Is it a cornulitid ? Or a single corallite of Aulopora? Something else, maybe? And another one? On a solitary rugose coral. 3 mm x 1 mm. And an example of Aulopora from Wiki to compare : And a cornulitid that looks a bit similar : I would be very grateful for any help. Then there is this. Is it the worm Keilorites? Length 1.9 cm, width 2.5 mm max.
  13. Small wormlike fossils in hard mineral

    I'm still brand new here, and hoping that help from the ID posts will get me moving in the right direction. We have so many fossils here in Cincinnati and the outlying regions.. Thank you for helping!
  14. Possible Ordovician worm?

    I found this in the layers well above the trilobite bed at the Beecher's Bed Quarry in NY. It appears to be a segmented worm. I welcome opinions. Its about 5 cm long and 2 mm wide. The photos of the ends are taken through a microscope.
  15. 2 ID's

    Found these in eastern NC.
  16. Worm trace?

    All-- On top of the ridge where we have built a home in the Missouri Ozarks, near Rockbridge, about 26 miles north of the Arkansas border, there are many, many fossils. Coral abounds. (Even I can identify coral.) There is a lot of other stuff, too. Here is a sample of that other stuff. I think it is a worm trace (is that the correct nomenclature?). If you have a moment, tell me what you think. It was found 300 feet about the level of a river. It was at some depth between 0 and 10 feet, doubtless closer to the 0 number than the 10 foot number. I discovered it on May 7, 2017. (Maybe I should make another GUESS just to be safe(r)!) Thanks. --Bill
  17. Trace fossil of???

    Trilobite or worm trail? Or something else? Found near red river gorge in Kentucky. Size: 5" x 3.5" x .5"
  18. What part of this is a worm?

    Hello TFF. Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm a newbie and I think I should know as much about my fossils as I can. I have a little mazon creek worm, but I can't tell what part is the worm. Is it the white part?
  19. Flat worm? Tully monster?

    A nice old gentleman gave me a bag of fossils he gathered at Mazon Creek many moons ago. Unfortunately he didn’t bother identifying most of them or even double checking that the rocks actually contained fossils at all. So I’m left to sift through them and figure all that out. Here’s one I’m having trouble with: Now, don’t any of you be getting my hopes up by saying that it’s part of a tully monster, lol.
  20. Mazon Help - Number ten: worm

    Sorry, so small and dark it was difficult to photograph. Worm of some sort?
  21. Mazon Help - Number three: worm?

    Worm? Possibly Paucijaculum samamithion?
  22. Mazon Help - Number two: worm?

    Worm? Possibly Esconites Zelus or Achistrum?
  23. Another Burgess critter - chaetognath

    Not sure if anyone has posted a link to this already... a bit old, too (last Aug.) but new to me: https://phys.org/news/2017-08-scientists-id-tiny-prehistoric-sea.html#nRlv
  24. Petwood with worm and fossil poop?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me identify these strange fossils I found in the atacama desert in South America. I believe 2 of them are seeds of some sort, and petrified wood with what looks to be a worm, and also a weird poo looking chunk. any thoughts? Thanks The seeds? petrified wood with worm? petrified poo
  25. Clam and worm ID

    I found this clam a while back. The one side was pretty clean, but the other side and top were covered with something like mudstone. So I set about cleaning it up a little. I'm an amature wanna be so I didn't do that great of a job, but as I was cleaning off the mudstone like stuff I uncovered at least 3 other critters. I broke the fragile shell of creature # 2 attached to the top, before I realized it was another shell. I thought it was shell fragment in the mudstone. I uncovered creature # 3 a very tiny worm about 1 mm in diameter and maybe 2 cm long. I also uncovered creature # 4 a more robust worm about 6 mm in diameter. I'm not sure how long that one is, because I may have broken him in half before I realized he was there. I think it was wrapped around the clam on the top and side. There may be a 3rd worm down the side as well. I got distracted by something else and never finished cleaning it up. Anyway, can anyone tell me what type of clam this is? Can anyone tell if the worms are different species or is one just younger than the other? I don't think creature #2 is not really identifiable other than maybe a barnacle type or something. I don't know my creatures. I'm new at this.
