  1. Hi guys, This is my first posting on the forum, constructive criticism is appreciated. Each year, when the water level in the lake is lowered in late fall, I go there in search of crinoids The first set of photos shows one of my better finds of 2017. This small slab (approximately 9 x 12 inches) had partially eroded from the shore. I was more than pleased to see all crinoids exposed along the weathered edge. Hopefully, there are some nice ones hidden in the center. Last year, while walking up a watershed near the lake, I found a

    What makes square holes

    Hello, I pulled a large rock out of the ground a few weeks ago and I'm now cleaning up some of the small rocks that broke off as it came up. This one caught my eye cause it's got a trilobite but after cleaning I noticed all of these rectangular holes on the side. The lines on the rule are 16th inch. Any suggestions on what would've created rectangular holes like this? Thanks for looking!

    Amazing Arizona Adventure

    I found one of my most interesting and productive fossil sites ever east of Phoenix near Superior, Arizona in late November. The hill contained outcrops of the Devonian Martin Formation and the Mississippian Escabrosa Formation which is roughly the same age as the Redwall Limestone found further north. My first interesting find was several Pachyphyllum corals with very small corallites. The “craters” within the corallites averages just under 2 mm which suggested that these were the P. nevadense species which is not common in the Payson area further to the north. The c

    Is this bryozoan or just rock

    Hello again, I found these 2 rocks this morning on my property. Redwall limestone, Mooney falls member, Arizona, Mississippian. I think the tiny branch looking thing might be bryozoan and I don't know if the bumpy rock is anything at all. What do you guys think, are these just weathered rocks?
  5. Mother Nature graced us locally with another temperate day so I had time to squeeze in a long exploration into some hidden canyons that comprise a large subset of the local Mississippian formation known as 'Lake Valley' To get to the canyons of interest I walked through Silurian-Devonian exposures but I did not stop to explore for anything. Here was my first view toward the hidden Lake Valley Formation canyons. You can see deformation from the mud mounding. More to follow.

    Crinoid like

    Hello and thanks for looking. I found these on my property in NW Arizona. It's Mississippian, Mooney falls member of the redwall limestone. I found the little pill like fossil a few days ago and then the column today. These are not like the tons of Crinoid fossils I've found nearby and I can't seem to find anything that matches online. I'm sure some of you will know immediately what it is. Please help if you have and ideas. Thanks
  7. Fossil found in marine limestone deposit Ut. About 9” long. Formation from Mississippian according to USFS.

    Michigan Fossil ID

    This was found at Millennium Park near Grand Rapids, MI. I'm thinking Bryozoan?...but does anyone have an idea of species?
  11. Hello. I have still been going through boxes of mostly cave mineral from a large estate sale purchase, mostly consisting of cave minerals. The tags that remain are not attached to the pieces and usually scattered among many boxes. This amazing plate I found recently and believe I finally found the label. I just need justification. I haven't found any other plates like this one. It's stunning in person!

    Is This A Stromatoporoid?

    Hello, I found this rock in Alabama (Mississippian/Tuscumbia Limestone) and have been trying to figure out what is all over it. After searching the forum and the internet, the closest match I could find is it possibly being a stromatoporoid, showing mamelons? If not, can anyone tell me what it might be? (My husband says it looks like melted plastic to him. I’m really hoping he isn’t correct. Lol) Thanks!
  13. Presumably, having been tumbled along the robustness of the Knob Creek's quartz bearing country rock of the Hoosier National Forest in the Bartlettsville (North Lawrence Co.) IN area, the tip of the Crown (Calyx) of this large Crinoid appears to have been sheered off at some point to give the observer a view (in crossection) of the inside of calyx which reveals absolutely nothing but Silica replacement of all internal parts. This sample is of the Harrodsburg Formation in the Sanders Group, Lower Middle Mississippian Time.

    Hash Plate I.D. Request

    Hi, I’m hoping someone will let me know which type of fossils are in this rock. I found it in Alabama. (Mississippian/Tuscumbia Limestone) Thanks!
  16. Sometimes, when you go on a fossil hunt, you find more than just fossils. Some friends and I traveled to southeastern Iowa in Spring '18 to scour the Mississippian for fossils, but while there, we noticed that many of the homes that we drove by sported geodes in their front yards. Intrigued, we decided to investigate for ourselves. As it turns out, the area is well-known for its geodes (Iowa's state rock is the geode), so we promptly decided that we had to collect some for ourselves. We eventually found a privately owned piece of property where we could fill a bucket with geodes fo
  17. Hi again! Two more ID requests - this time they're from the Bangor Limestone in Alabama, USA (Lower Carboniferous, Mississippian). Specimen #1: An orthoconic nautiloid - could it be Brachycycloceras sp.? Specimen #2: A blastoid - Pentremites sp.? Thanks for your help! Monica

    Identification Request

    While out fossil hunting in Alabama (Mississippian/Tuscumbia Limestone) earlier this week, I found a hash plate full of crinoid stem segments which also has a small fossil on it which I cannot identify. Is it a bryozoan?

    Syringopora cf. ramulosa

    A very common genus, ranging from Ordovician to Upper Carboniferous to ?Permian. This specimen shows good internal detail of the narrow corallites (1.2 - 1.5 mm), including septal spines which are not diagnostic and may not always be present (this may be preservational). The long, infundibuliform (funnel shaped) tabulae are characteristic and show in some of the longitudinal sections. Scale bar 1 cm long.
  20. My fossil hunting friend came across this object in a creek in eastern Missouri. At first glance this ~1 cm diameter ball with stout spikes would seem to be some sort of camerate crinoid, but the spikes cover the entire surface, with no apparent place to put arms, column, mouth, or anus. (Side note: That must be the crinoid folksong community's version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.") From there my fallback would be coral, or perhaps sponge, but the complete coverage around the whole sphere (see attached video) has me a bit baffled. The creek flows through mostly Meramecian

    The Crinoid Road Cut

    I don't get to go out fossil hunting as much as I would like these days, but I was able to sneak out to a local road cut for a few hours the other morning. It was the day before my birthday after all! A great excuse for me to convince the wife to watch the kiddos for a few hours. This particular road cut is dated to the Mississippian and is full of crinoids! I was literally walking over them. They were everywhere! Upon closer inspection I found that there were a couple of layers that were mainly composed of crinoids. This large slab was laying on the ground in front of the cut.
  23. I found this while searching for fossils in Alabama this week. Can anyone identify it for me? (Mississippian/Tuscumbia Limestone)
  24. I am wondering which type of fossil I found. Is it a type of sponge? (Tuscumbia Limestone/Mississippian)
