I looked at some more references this morning and now I’m leaning more towards Esconites. Its tricky!

Yes identification of worms, especially ones not exceptionally preserved, can be kind of tricky.

I'll pull out my microscope short to look at the details a little closer.

 

I do believe this one is Esconites though.

Had this piece open up today, maybe a coprolite. Anyone agree or disagree?

Also had a small bivalve open but it’s hard to photograph

I'm leaning towards it being a coprolite. Is it about 2 to 2-1/2 inches long?

Sorry forgot measurements. Yes it is 2 inches exact.

Recently received a ton of Mazon creek fossils as a gift from a family friend that use to hunt for them back in the 80’s to eary 2000’s. Was mostly jellyfish but thought to share some of the interesting pieces.

 

Looks like all the flora pieces were collected in the actual Mazon creek. Some of them are quite large and if anyone can help with ID, that would be appreciated:

 

The other half for this one is more complete but is missing the very tip. Have it currently tucked away.

Also included about 5 totes as well full of concretions. It was almost entirely jellyfish but included a couple worms, coprolite, sea cucumber. Here are some of the really interesting associated pieces:

 

I count 10+ jellyfish on this one
