    Camarotoechia brachiopod

    I finished prepping this specimen recently, an unidentified Camarotoechia brachiopod. It exhibits an uncommon/rare orange coloration; only about 1/100 of Camarotoechia brachiopods show it. This one, though, unfortunately has some compression damage on the right side, and some of the ridges have pieces missing. The pictures below first show the pre-prep photo (which I finally remembered to take), and the post-prep. Thanks everyone for reading!

    Lingula sp.

    From the album: Late Jurassic brachiopods of European Russia

    Moscow Oblast, Bronnitsy, Late Oxfordian, Am. serratum zone
  3. I have just found this microfossil. It is unfortunately incomplete, but the general shape is still discernible. I have two ideas for this specimen, a fish scale or an inarticulate brachiopod. Of these possibilities, I think that inarticulate brachiopod is more probable. The shape, "growth rings", and slight depression in the top lead me to this conclusion. On the other hand, its size, color, and the absence of such brachiopods from this formation, lead me towards fish scale. I am uncertain on both, and could use some help with this one. The specimen is the from the Leighton Formati

    Salopina Brachiopod

    I have just finished preparing this nice pair of brachiopods. I am pretty certain that they are of the genus Salopina, but am not totally positive. The genus is marked as one of the most common brachiopods found in the Leighton Fm, as well as being considered a defining characteristic of this formation. Even though they are so common, I really never tire of them. The way these brachiopods were preserved, though, is rather interesting. @DPS Ammonite kindly acquainted me with the fact that these specimens are not internal molds, as I (pretty sillily) first thought. It s
  5. Hello everyone, I recently received two pieces of brachiopod fossils from Poland, both come from the Eifelian in Grzegorzowice. The first piece contains a number of small productids, I am not sure about the IDs but they do look quite similar to Poloniproductus varians that I have seen come from that area so I am wondering if that is what they are. And the next brachiopod is some kind of Athyrid? I wasn't able to find any similar species from this location. I would appreciate any help with identifying these, Thank you for looking!
  6. I finally had a chance to organize my fossils from my last excursion to Iowa. The following 5 fossils are new to me and I struck out trying to identify them. Hence the need for some assistance. They are from the Burlington Limestone/ Mississippian of SE Iowa. 1. This appears to be in the shape of a crinoid cup. It is large and fits Cactocrinus imperator which is suppose to have a smooth surface in the Burlington. 2. The left side is broke away. Reminds me of a bellerophon like fossil but can find no mention. 3. There are lots of shark teeth in
  7. I'm new to fossil hunting but am having fun with what I've done so far. To date, I've mostly gotten stuff from the shores of the Mississippi, so original location and period aren't possible. I want to do some day trips to find better specimins. I've found crinoid stems, a brachiopod, and some that I haven't identified yet. I really want to find some intact specimins, particularly trilobites, ammonites, and blastoids. What are locations within maybe 3 hours of the Quad Cities? If anyone wants to join, I'd be glad for the company and newbie tips. TIA
  8. Hello! So I found these three fossils and was curious to know about them... one i think is to be a bryozoan branch the tooth i believe to be a cow tooth not sure how old it may be and the last one is a type of small brachiopod its super tiny but again I don't know much about fossils yet but I am ready to learn more ! So if any one knows anything about these fossils that'd be a great help! First 6 pictures are from the riverbed and the last two are from the beach in Lübeck,Germany Thanks!
  9. Hello everyone, A couple of weeks ago while looking through the pdf Devonian Paleontology of NY by Linsley I stumbled upon a very interesting looking brachiopod, This is an athyrid that belongs to the genus Pentagonia which is apparently found in the Mid Devonian of New York. I was immdiatley quite intrigued by this as I have never heard of it and love athyrids especially with interesting and unique shapes such as this one, so wanted to find out what formations these could be in as I would be really interested in finding some, but upon looking the genus and both species up I didn't g
  10. Hi guys Fairly new to this. Went to an abandoned sand stone quarry near me. Found loads of brachiopods and some criniod stems. But best of all this big clam. It might be hard to tell but theres a big brachiopod under that rock. Please can you share some tips for getting it out safely. Done as much as i feel comfy doing with my fossil hammer and chisel.
  11. Hi, just wanted to show you prep of a quite nice preserved Lacunosella cracoviensis - endemic specie of my Jurassic area prepped with a Engraver and a little bit of vinegar for surface cleaning. Started as a 20 pounds chunk

    Unknown fossil

    Hi All Fairly new to this. I went fossil hunting with my boy on a beach known for carboniferous fossils. We found a ton of brachiopod specimens but also found this. It may be another brachiopod specimen as there is also a brach mold fossil on the other side. But wondered if it might be something different? If its even a fossil at all.
  13. Hello everyone, I recently got some fossils from Russia, some plant remains from Perm Krai where I grew up and a couple of Productid brachiopods from Sverdlovsk Oblast. They are from the Artinskian stage of the Permian period, one is around 2.5cm in width while the other even though incomplete is absolutely gigantic, the largest I have in my collection. I am not great at identifying Productid brachiopods and the Permian is probably the period I have least experience with within the Paleozoic so I have not been able to ID them myself. The large one looks similar to some Reticula
  14. Just washed off couple pounds of dried mud on my shoes from my outing yesterday to Grayson spot. Was delighted to find another fossil! I have not been able to ID it, first I thought deer heart clam but I see the hinge, is this a Brachiopod?
  15. Hello everyone! I recently purchased two fossils, they were both sold to me as Ordovician the crinoid being from Wisconsin and the brachiopod from Illinois. @connorp has told me in a different thread that the dolomites of the region also preserve Silurian fossils and that these look much more like that. Doing a quick Google search I did find something that looks very similar to the crinoid I have, but I don't know enough about these animals or the area they come from to be certain of the ID. Here is the crinoid in question: To me this calyx looked quite similar t
  16. When I break open brachiopod packstones from South Haven (MI), I usually find three types of tiny to small fragile brachiopod shells more often than any others. These are from the Mississippian Coldwater Shale formation. I’ve been having a private discussion with a fellow forum member, and we’ve come to the conclusion that these are likely all from the same brachiopod. The largest shell in the first photo always bows inward. The shell in the second photo always bows outward. We suspect those are opposite sides of the same half because of the V on the one side and t
  17. I recently collected a few fossils from Schoharie County in upstate NY. Among them are the pictured. I am hoping someone can tell me in detail exactly what I have, in as much detail as possible. I apologize in advance, as usual, but I am still learning and am trying to get as mush specific detail as I can. The first was hard to effectively photograph, but appears plant-like. It is hard to make out, but the pattern continues in a circle. I've included two photos, one with my hand for scale. Coral perhaps? The second has several things, but I am interested primarily in the lower right side

    Middle Devonian Brachiopod ID Help

    This past Sunday I found this brachiopod along with several others at an exposure of the Moscow Formation (Middle Devonian) in Western NY. I looked through Linsley and Wilson without much success at identifying it. It is likely an immature specimen, which always makes figuring out an identification hard. I would love to hear your thoughts. Any help is greatly appreciated! Also, while I have your attention, I could use some help differentiating Spinatrypa spinosa and Pseudoatrypa devoniana. Spinatrypa spinosa? Pse
  19. From the Atrasado Formation in San Diego Canyon, New Mexico. Took a couple of younger friends fossil hunting, and we found a good bed. This one's a real beauty. My photographic equipment is primitive and doesn't do it justice. Graptolites and something else. Not sure what the circular structures are; I don't have the equipment for proper microphotography. There is a very clear echinoderm plate elsewhere in the sample so I'm wondering if these are some kind of echinoderm. They're very clear under the loupe and obviously f

    Upper Devonian Brachiopod ID

    Hello guys Found this Brachiopod in the Upper Devonian of Marhouma, Ougarta ranges, Algeria. any idea on the ID? p.s~ Sorry for the low quality pic!
  21. Hello everyone, I have been wondering about this for a bit but only now that I atually have one of these in my collections have I decided to ask this, All of the P. bownockeri I have seen have been pyritized and I wanted to ask why this is, I do not know of any other brachiopods like this because while there are some I have seen preserved in pyrite they are from areas where the rest of the fossils are also pyritized, from what I have seen its mostly just this species that is commonly found fully pyritized from this formation. The only thing I can think of is maybe they are found
  22. From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    Left is my entire collection of Nervostrophia rockfordensis. Uncommon, much larger and flatter than the right which is Nervostrophia camerata of which is very abundant and only some are shown here. Nervostrophia camerata is variable in shapes, either having a wing projective that is very distinct from other brachiopods or lacking it entirely.
  23. Tetradium

    Devonoproductus walcotti

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    Devonoproductus walcotti This is is my first of the Productid branch of the brachiopod family tree as none exists in Ordovician. Typically both halves separated. This one is unusual for a brachiopod to me in having two very different textures on separated shell halves. The bottom half is very inflated and easily confused with Nervostrophia. Uncommon. Scattered prickly projective appear on the bottom half while the top part is concave and have many longitude ridges, making me thought it was a clam species.
  24. Tetradium

    Cryptonella sp

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    Cryptonella sp. Classic lamp brachiopod. Uncommon and easily overlooked due to its tiny size.
  25. Tetradium

    Strophonelloides sp

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    Strophonelloides sp. Rare - very distinct, resembles Rafinesquina from Ordovician. Fragile as heck too. Even this one in hard shale had cracks and is deformed.
