Absolutely Unbelievable

The edrioasteroids with straight ambulacra and relative large plates, such as the one on the right in the first series of photos, are Cryptogoleus chapmani.  The edrios with large semicircular plates in the outer ring are a different species of Cryptogoleus, I'll have to check some papers to see which one.  As with the last flat, several specimens of Isorophusella incondita are present.  The large marginal plates are absent in Isorophusella, and the ambulacral arms are more strongly curved.

 

The crinoids are likely Arthrocantha carpenteri from the Silica Shale, or maybe Arkona.

 

I have to confess I am quite envious of the material you are gleaning from this "yard sale".  It would take many years to accumulate this from the field, and many of the sites are no longer open to collecting.  In fact, I would say a collector starting today would never be able to duplicate this collection.

Thanks for the info and Id’s- I also agree with you, these would take quite a while to collect if you could even get into the sites. The couple that collected these all of the items from my many different posts on this Garage Sale over the last couple of months, did so over the course of several decades. Thanks again.

@Nimravis Sorry I can't help you with those ammos. They don't look like anything I'm familiar with. Maybe New Mexico? Try PFooley. Or France? Try Caterpillar.

Probably Prionocyclus novimexicanus. They look similar to my Prionocyclus sp. avatar

and these: http://www.ammonoid.com/novimexicanusz.html

Need better close up of these below:

They look sort if like Spenodiscus lenticularis is which has a narrow profile looking down at the keel.

Unbelievable collection those people amassed, and going for fire sale prices. You don't come across a yard sale like that every day. :envy:

That phyllocarid is very interesting.

 

If you ever decide you've got too many edrioasteroids...  :rolleyes:

(I know it's useless but I had to say it!)

...I picked up this flat of ammonites and bivales from an unknown location for $20.00, if anyone knows a possible location please let me know @Ludwigia , @PFOOLEY ....

 

I would have snagged that flat as well. It looks like a Middle Turonian assemblage....Prionocyclus wyomingensis and company. As for location, I am not sure...you can find similar looking matrix with those critters all through the W.I.S. (I would guess SD or WY)

Thanks very much and I was glad to be there to get this flat.

That's a really impressive haul Ralph - especially the phyllocarid!

You're going to need rehab pretty soon. Nice haul. Whose collection is this? Some of it looks familiar as in "I saw that one in person and held it in my hand" familiar.
