Hi,

here is a bunch of tiny beauties from Texas (Lake Bridgeport).

If somebody can help ID the gastropods at 1:40 and a crinoid at 4:20, it would be much appreciated.

Collecting without leaving the den, I love it!   :P

 

I can so relate.  Not much in the way of fossils here (other than the crabs), so I buy matrix to pick through.

Can I ask where you get your matrix from?

If you mean the gastropods on the left at 1:20 they are one of the Pseudozygopleura species. I don't know what that is the tweezers are on. Anything you find at 4:20 can be uncertain...but an axillary ray plate by itself is hard to match with it's owner. Nice assortment. It looks like material I find at the spillway.

Thanks to everybody who replied!

BobWill: thanks for identification of the gastropod from the video.

RandyW: the matrix was collected not too far from the dam at Lake Bridgeport.

Somewhere around here 33.232166, -97.831624

but long-long time ago. I do not know what happened to that place since then.

It's still there and still good for collecting. I found out the "private" road is maintained by the Water District so don't let the local residents that use it run you out. A steep slope like that will likely always produce for us.
