Couple of finds

Recommended Posts

BuddingPaleo

I think I may have found my first Devonian bryozoan. (From Sylvania, Ohio.) And I also am not sure if these are shell or plant impressions. The rock that I think has the bryozoan has many nifty whatnots to explore, but that pattern immediately caught my eye. 

I'm not sure if the fan shape on the second rock is plant or shell. And there's a small bit to the left of it that appears to be shell that I haven't started to ID yet. (Pics in second post)

Thanks for any help.

The first one looks like a branching tabulate coral, maybe from the Pachyporidae.

The others are brachiopods. 

Nice.:)

Agreed. Just beneath the 1.5 inch mark in the top photo is a view of the exterior of a piece.

Very interesting fossils! :) The first pic looks like a bivalve or brachiopod mold (imprint). Love the fan pattern. The second pic looks like a cast of a brachiopod. So you have a negative and positive on the same rock, very cool.
