Devonian oddity

Recommended Posts

Kane

Just got back and am beat from a day at Arkona. This one is a bit strange. Just when I think I've seen every odd pattern, ichnofossil, mineralization, and concretion type in the Widder shale, I get a curveball. Or should I say a snowflake?. :P

 

specs: Mid Devonian (Widder Fm). Arkona, Ontario. About an inch. 

 

I can't seem to find it, so this pic was taken in the field. I might have lost it. :(

I dont know my Devonian from a hole in the ground, but it does look interesting.  Im gunna call it a 'thing-a-majiggy'.   :)

Looks like an algae to me, shame you can't find it.

Fossil softball?

Or maybe one of the Hederella species?

It seems to have a good deal of 3D relief which would me make me doubt small Devonian plant. Could it be a very regular chondrites trace fossil?

I was going to suggest ichnofossil. The Hederella suggestion seems good as well. Hope you find it

Upon finding out what hederella is, I now agree with that, seeing as it seems to be attached to something as they usually are.

Thanks, all! I hadn't considered hederella at all, but it very much seems to be the case. :fistbump:

Raise your hand if you probably have a bunch and didn't know it. :)

Hederella looks like a very good call. Nice one @FossilDAWG

Congrats! Very cool find. Even if you lost track of it, you got to find it and photograph it.
