I was prepping out a shell (it may seem stupid but I don't trust myself with other things) in a piece of matrix given to me by @Rocky Stoner (thx for the stones!) and this little dotted piece caught my eye. Could it be a frag of a trilobite, or is it the usual suspects. I am btw not referring to the obvious bryozoan, but the shiny piece with four holes.

Sorry but I do not see it.

A picture that's A LOT less blurry will help. Right now, I'm just seeing colors, lines and circles. Take the picture from further away, and then zoom in. Also, could you maybe circle what you think is the 'trilobit"?

Looks like a bryozoan to me.

I can see,through squinted eyes*,something remotely akin to a trinucleid fringe,or is that the "obvious bryozoan"?

*and with my imagination in gentle overdrive

Like the others said,encircling the object of interest is always a good idea

Here is it encircled, I know the thing above it is bryozoan. I can't get a great picture with a iPad, even with a magnifying glass.

Ha, I forgot trilobite is trilo bit with an e, I meant bit as in piece, and I used trilo as a shortened version. The pun was not intended:D

It's the thing with the four holes in the middle, I remember finding something kind of similar a while back and the thread had lots of suggestions but no IDs were definitive. Slight majority on that one said eldregeops, this on is smaller and slightly different though.

Looks like a crinoid calyx print. Definitely not trilobit.

The "holes" are spine attachment points.

Okay, I'm still happy. I don't have many caliyces in my collection.

Is it just me, or did anyone else see what he was talking about in the first photo? :headscratch:

 

Hmmm, I don't know about crinoid calyx. Maybe. My first guess was that it was the inside of a chonetid brachiopod.

I can see brach, not too many chonetids in this stuff though (again this is from eastern W.V.)

Actually, "trilobit" is often used on this forum to mean "piece of a trilobite". It is a pun, in some sort of way, but it's really common (here). I actually put trilobit in quotation marks because I wasn't seeing any; as in the supposedly piece of trilobite.
