The clam broke in half where the trail was fossilized beneath it.

Nice eye bar on that tully! I still have yet to find one. Hopefully I'll get down there with a canoe soon and hit pit 11.

Wonderful, diverse collection! An arachnid is truly a rare find- I would love to see clearer pictures of that and the shark tooth. The Tully monster is lovely as well.

I'm not sure about the ID on the arachnid- the genus Terpsicroton is based on a single specimen found in the UK, although close relatives of it have been found in the Mazon Creek deposits.

You have some great finds there. Finding a Mazon Creek shark tooth is on my bucket list for sure! Keep em coming!

Some (hopefully) improved pictures of the arachnid.

Thanks for the encouragement and compliments. I'll try to work on improving pics especially the tooth. However, I am having trouble cleaning that one properly, that's why this pic was taken when wet (hence some glare).

The one you called a "cone" in the photos above is a horsetail rush Annularia stellata, that grew up to 10 meters tall. Very nice specimen.

I always had considered this an annularia example, and described it that way in my gallery picture of the same specimen, until I saw this specimen which is described as an end view of a cone.  It's not an academic source, so I guess I should have been more careful.  On that end I'm pretty sure my shrimp identification from when I created this thread is wrong too.MZF15B.jpg

I didn't see the date on the thread when I scrolled up after you posted the new arachnid photo. My bad.

No no no.  Thank you for pointing out any incorrect or debatable content.  I appreciate your knowledge and willingness to share.

What I mean is that had I noticed the date I would have concluded that three years later you know exactly what it is, especially since you are still actively engaged in collecting MC fossils.
