Marvejols fossils

Recommended Posts

Hello. 2 years ago i got box with fossils described as Fossiles U.S.W Marvejols. I didn't get any more info about them. 

For me fauna looks Devonian Frasnian. Most of fossil sites in the area are Mesosoic. 

First specimen contains 3 different corals.( Alveolites ,Aulopora and Thamnopora ??)

Hi. I did small investigation here. It's possibly La Serre formation which is also Devonian- Carboniferous boundary. Now main question is , if it's possible that the small 2mm long crustacean claw- like thing is Conodont?

maybe  Brachiopod?

next to it, seems to be crinoids.

Hi. I 've just removed small piece of matrix from fossil on the second pic. That's what I found. Part of trilobite "cheek" with an eye.

It's 15 mm long.Studio_20171230_230903.thumb.jpg.844ac6f8133a44a00755fd4ffc601f37.jpg

Thanks for answers. I love fossils in matrix especially if I get 4 species in one piece. I personally prefer not fully identified fossils in rock than loose  from matrix identified fossil. I think that could be Phacops (Omegops)accipitrinus. Only this one looks similar. http://popups.ulg.ac.be/0037-9395/index.php?id=1730&file=1&pid=1726
