Three comments: 

 

first pic, nice!

second pic, holy cows that was a big Isotelus!

 

first pic in crinoids looks like bryozoans. 

 

All great stuff.

Very cool looking finds there. Thanks for sharing. I would have kept some of the bryozoans. The crinoid hash plates were extremely cool. All of these are getting me excited about my upcoming trip to Indiana and Kentucky in two weeks. Congratulations.

It is- though I never got over to St. Leon.

I kept a couple- the rest were too big and some slabs were really big.

That is what I was thinking, I always hope that I will come across a large complete or near complete one.

Wow, that’s a lot of crinoids! Are they just small pockets or is there a layer just chock-full like that?

Every once in a while I come across a thin layer like that, it is never large. I really do like those pieces.

Congrats on your first complete trilo, Ralph!  It's a very nice Flexicalymene roller! :dinothumb::trilosurprise:

Excellent finds and pictures, thank you for sharing. That Isotelus piece is a whopper, and those bryozoans are fascinating- I have only ever found little fragments where I've collected, so it is cool to see something more representative of their structure in life.

Very cool!  I need to get back there.  It's been 4 years since I've been down that way.  Did you stop at the spillway?

 

Cheers,

Rich

I really have fun there and I did not stop at the spillway.

That site is a fossil cornucopia. Almost any one of those brach/bryo/crinoid pieces would be standout specimens in my drawers and worth the effort but for you they are leavers?? :default_faint:

I thought you would be familiar with the movie "Jaws" -- you know the part where he says: "We're gonna need a bigger boat". Time to buy that extended cargo van perhaps?

Correct, there are fossils everywhere and I was looking for smaller pieces but always hope for a monster size Isotelus , but so far no luck.

Some are too big and others I am just not interested in, but do take pictures of some. There were so many pieces that I did not take pictures of, it is a real cornucopia as you say.
