The shape combined with the lack of a well defined mold make me think sponge.

Tags say Devonian but I couldn’t tell you the scale.:ighappy:

The tags are great for the search function, but in practice are often not noticed by those considering an ID.
Size (or something internationally recognized for scale), location, and age should be repeated in the body of an ID inquiry. ;)

I agree. Repeating that amount of information isn’t time intensive and helps out those of us with bad eyes or scattered brains or both. I’ve skipped over the tags many times because they’re so unobtrusive. Maybe if they were bright neon colors, I would notice them more often. :default_rofl:

I think the advertising kingdom has desensitized a lot of us to things that are designed to make us take notice.

Perhaps you’re on to something there. It certainly wreaks havoc on my scattered brain. :hearty-laugh: Anyway, I agree with the sponge ID.

Wow! There's a lot going on on that piece! I see a number of brachiopod imprints, some fenestellid bryozoan, and possibly some crinoid parts. The long cast on the right is very intriguing and I'm not sure what it is. If this was found in the Newburgh area it might be lower Devonian Schoharie Limestone (It looks like it to me.) which was carried from the Helderberg Plateau by a glacier. That formation is very rich in a wide variety of nautiloids, so I wouldn't rule out a nautiloid. Do you have more of that kind of rock?

I'm following this...but please help me. Is the area in red what you are asking about?

I think that it is, but I'm unsure of the sponge possibility. :headscratch:
