Got Bones?

New Spiral shell Found, Identification Please?

Got Bones?

Hello fellow TFF Members!

Just yesterday evening I was searching a small creek bed in Homewood, IL when I stumbled upon these two interesting finds. I am wondering if some expert could help identify them and/or tell me if there is any way of cleaning the majority of dirt off them, perhaps even tell me if I should prep them at all, because there is a strange fossil in one of the two that goes inside the limestone. Thanks!

Last picture is a crinoid stalk.

 

The others look like gastropods, likely a Paleozygopleura or a relative or Cyclonema.

 

Thank you very much for the reply!

Most likely not Paleozygopleura. That is a high spired gastropod from the Devonian. :unsure:

The gastropod pictured has a much lower, wider profile. Cyclonema could be a candidate.
