Potomac River find

Recommended Posts

Ropterus

Found this surface collecting on the Potomac yesterday. Its not complete unfortunately, and I haven't been able to find what it could be, so I appreciate any help with this. Other than this, my daughter found a small gastropod and we found quite a few teeth, but nothing to brag about.

Crustacean tail?

I wouldn't rule out ironstone. It's a frequent fossil mimic.

Thanks for your input Craig and Rockwood. So far, I haven't been able to find anything else online that looks similar. The "fossil" part is raised about 1/4" and it is flat underneath.
