Fossil Plate? Collection From Uncle

Another specimen given to me by my uncle over 30 years ago. Never really looked at these until recently.

 

Any insight would be great! I have no idea.

 

Thanks!'

I think I've seen this somewhere else already.

Its not the same one as a little earlier. Actually, they may have been found together and from the same find- but in separate pieces when I got them.

This looks to have a lot of bryozoan in it. Maybe the mate to the piece mentioned in your other ID thread? At the least, I suspect it was found in the same location.

These images resemble dolomite from the Brassfield Fm., which is exposed in outcrops near Dayton, OH (west-central Ohio). Rocks from this dolomite contain (among other things) abundant bryozoans and brachiopods similar to those pictured above, and they have a characteristic pinkish tint. Did your uncle ever go collecting near there?

Hello Elasmohunter,

 

I am not sure where he came up with all this stuff. It was around 30 years ago, and I was about 9-10 at the time.

 

I asked my dad about this, and he has no idea either. He lived in the Davenport, Iowa area his whole life.

 

It's never simple :-(

 

Thanks,

 

Dan
