Nice finds! That Fenestella is pretty neat! There is a site in Australia where every slab you pick up is covered in it :)

Thanks Don and you are correct about the size. This location tends to have Blastoids of that size and a short distance to the West near Anna, Illinois usually has them smaller. I am always hoping to find a hash plate with a Blastoid in it, but so far no luck.

Fantastic finds. I only have 2 blastoids in my collection, and my biggest one is still dwarfed by yours. Amazing preservation too! :envy:

Great finds! And they're not all that heavy to lug home :)

I love it all, especially that last hash plate containing the two Archimedes bryozoans - very nice! :dinothumb:

I do find some pretty hash Plates at that site, but not at the Anna site a short distance away.

Is it an optical illusion or are those blastoids huge? Congratulations on some excellent finds.
