Strange fossil from the Kalkberg formation


Nautiloid

Recommended Posts

I found this fossil last weekend at the road cut along Rickard Hill Road in Schoharie, New York. It is from the Lower Devonian Kalkberg formation. The surface has no texture at all. The fossil has a thickness of about 1mm. Originally I thought it was less than 2 inches long and wide but I was able to prep out the rest of the fossil due to the softness of the matrix.  It is about 3 inches wide and long.

If I had to guess, I would go with a goniatite.

Hmmm... you might be right. I could see it being some sort of goniatite or gastropod. :zzzzscratchchin:

I agree, with goniatite. Probably some kind of Tornoceratid.
