Two unknown associated fossils with Zoophycos

Recommended Posts

Okay, I know these two pics will look pretty indeterminate, but would anyone be able to get me past cephalopod and gastropod and into an area where I can research and expand my knowledge.

 

Both these were found in the Mississippian, Lake Valley Formation, Andrecito Member (early Osagean). Clear association to Zoophycos with which these were found.

Found this trace depression where a spiral gastropod have been. Note zoophycos traces around it

Snails

Associations like this are rarely indicative.

Even though rusty in appearance, I was going to propose Solenospira due to shape, size and time association with mid-Mississipian. Did not find Solenospira associated to local formations though

I agree that all 3 are gastropods.

I don't see cephalopod there, but I can see the spiralling character in each of the specimens. :)
