June should be a great month for entries--I can't wait to see what will be entered this time. Early rains have swelled the rivers so you won't be seeing any last Peace River entries from us down here in South Florida.

 

 

Cheers.

Shame to hear that there won't be any Peace River entries! Well that forces you to do one thing: go in the quarries/roadcuts/construction sites instead in order to find some awesome invert stuff! (cough cough, bivalves and gastropods, cough cough)

Thank you. It was a definite first for me. I had no idea there was such a thing edrioasteroid until I found this. :)

I think he means edrioasteroid (which it is not).

It's not? I'm sorry. :blush: I must have misunderstood the thread. I thought the underside of image e. I did reach out to a local paleontologist this afternoon to get his thoughts. Do I need to withdraw the entry?

I think since we're still uncertain what this intriguing find may be, we could probably call it an uncertain trace fossil. I can edit it if you wish. :)

Oh, please don't! There is no 'sorry' and no shame if we're all learning from the process. :)

This is why I generally point out mis-steps, rather than edit them: as long as it's correct at the end, the process of getting there is important.

A "STAR SPANGLED" Brachiopod, that would have been a good entry for July! :)

Part-and-counterpart fossils are always very neat; and I think yours has quite a good chance of winning, @Nimravis ;)

I thought you should have entered it when you first posted the little guys reintroduction into the world again.

Quite a bit of soft tissue in that fish. Nice specimen.

I still have some blocks of chalk from my trip to the forest in northern France - who knows, maybe there'll be something FOTM-worthy in there...
