Belated trip report: Rickard Hill Rd. 5/31/20


Recommended Posts

I know this trip happened a while ago, but I’ve been pretty busy as of late finishing up the school year and such and haven’t had a chance to make a trip report. Hopefully y’all find this interesting.

The current name combination is: Dalmanites pleuroptyx

 

According to Lespérance & Bourque: 

D. pleuroptyx is excluded from the Synphoriinae because it lacks fused 2P and 3P lateral glabellar lobes.

Nice finds! Thank you for including the scientific names, I appreciate that. My favorite fossil among this assortment is the Discomyorthis oblata. How common is this fossil in your area?

Thanks:D and Discomyorthis oblata are one of the more common brachiopods at this site, but they are often found as single valves. Most of the time they are broken due to how thin they are.

Nice stuff!  I'm sure that Adam @Tidgy's Dad would like to have a look-see since he's such a fan of brachiopods :)

Nice finds.  It looks like that Actinopteria could be glued back together?

Thanks! And unfortunately, I lost a couple of the pieces to that bivalve, so it won’t fit together.
