Missouri Conulariids

Missouri Conulariids

Hello! Here are some of Missouri's Conulariids I have collected in the past.

Conulariids are as of right now classified as Jellyfish but have had uncertain affinities in the past, they would attach themselves to a surface and feed on suspended matter in the water column and some possible predation. Interestingly enough they can be associated with calcium phosphate pearls and can have body damage from cartilagenous fish that would eat them along with other hard shelled invertebrates. Please enjoy these weird cnidarians!

 

All specimens I have found so far belong to Paraconularia and are Pennsylvanian in age. 

 

Location: Missouri

Stratigraphy: Iola Formation (Paola Limestone member and Muncie Creek Shale member)
