A couple of unknown items from Penn Dixie

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

Last weekend I attended Penn Dixie's Dig with the Experts event on the Sunday, and I found a couple of fossils that I'd like help identifying, if possible.  The fossils are mid-Devonian in age.

 

Thanks so much for your help!

Item #1 - photo of the entire rock and a close-up.

Item #2 - photo of the entire rock and a close-up.  Perhaps a crinoid bit?

Hey Monica, 

The first one may be a Styliolina spica.

The second item probably needs to be prepped out some, to figure out what it is. :headscratch:

Thanks, Tim!  I always assumed that tentaculitids all had ribbing but now I realize that I was wrong!  I wonder if this is a possible genus for similar specimens found at Hungry Hollow here in Ontario (since it's about the same age as the rocks at Penn Dixie).  Hmmm...

 

Thanks for your help - you rock! :SlapHands:

I'm cautiously going for a barrel shaped crinoid columnal on the second - there look to be crenellations at the top and bottom. I've found similar looking Carboniferous ones, complete with tubercles.

I noticed the crenelations, too, which is why I also thought it belonged to a crinoid.  Thanks for chiming in! :)
