Mississippian Road Cuts in Anna and Vienna, Illinois

Nice spots! Good production/diversity for such a small area. You seem to have a lot of those over there in the Midwest.

Crinoid calyx was my thinking on that too, but someone else will have to give you the name.

Some terrific finds, Ralph! :)

I love the brachiopods and echinoderms, but I have to say, those spiny corals are most intriguing.

I agree Archie, hitting it once a year is about right. This is not a place that you could hunt monthly.

Thanks Al and these two spots are well known and probably get more visits than I think they do.

I believe this is part of a crinoid caylx (?)

Any Help would be appreciated.

Looks like a Eucalyptocrinus calyx, could be off though. Let me know what you think.
