Two mystery mini fossils. I’ll include scale photos, with marks at 1/2 mm. I’m on the lookout for Carboniferous Trilobites, and examples I’ve seen are very tiny in this formation, no more than 1/2 inch long.

Scale marks (1/2 mm). I’m curious about the small oval on the bottom of the very first image that contains several small bumps/dots.

If not trilobite, it could be an ostracod.  Some careful prep might be revealing.

The second specimen is an ostracod.
