We certainly keep @Ptychodus04 busy. Kris did a great job preparing this crinoid cup with three partial associated arms that I found earlier this month. In honor of his great work and my excitement finding the fossil, I enter it into this month's invertebrate fossil of the month competition. Since I won't receive it back until after the close of the competition, I have stolen Kris's photos of the fossil. I hope he doesn't mind.

Hello! This is my first time entering a Fossil of the Month contest, and I wanted to show off this blue-grey Listrucanthus denticle that was inside a phosphatic nodule.  Most of the ones I have found tend to be yellowish in color and are not as well defined as this specimine. 

 

 

Date of Discovery: November 17, 2021

Scientific/Common name: Listracanthus sp. Denticle

Geologic age or Gelologic formation: Pennsylvanian, Iola Limestone Formation (Muncie Creek Shale Member)

State, Province, or Region Found: Missouri

The orgional split caused it to break into 3 pieces. Detaching the unglued right portion, in my opinon, opens up a new perspective of this denticle and created a more dramatic shot
