    Peski Cyclocrinus stem fragments

    From the album: Late Jurassic echinoderms of European Russia

    Numerous in Callovian and Oxfordian, Some can be quite large (3 cm and more). Calyx is unknown. Moscow Oblast, Peski quarry
  2. 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
  3. While heading to visit family in southern Indiana, I decided to leave a day early to do a bit of collecting in the Cincinnatian. The first stop was, as usual, St. Leon, to look for the famous Flexicalymene rollers. In the past, I've usually found 2-4 per visit, but was quite lucky this time, walking away with 10 rollers and my first prone. Here are a couple in situ shots. After a couple hours at St. Leon, I headed towards my hotel. As it turned out, it was just down the road from Trammel Fossil Park. I had not been here before. It ex
  4. Found these yesterday. Getting them out of the rock was a job. I was wore out afterward. https://imgur.com/a/wWGIEst I believe they are Phanocrinus.

    Morocco crinoid

    From the album: Morroco Fossils

    Scyphocrinites elegans crinoid Upper Silurian 420 Million Years old Boutschrafin, Erfoud, Morocco
  6. bcfossilcollector


    I’m looking for some information regarding this crinoid. It looks typical of the fossil crinoids I’ve seen from Morocco but I’d really appreciate a more learned perspective. A family member is thinking of acquiring this specimen. Only photo I have unfortunately. Thanks. @Tidgy's Dad
  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. Today I went on an online expedition. I got up at 8:00 am on my last day of vacation and found some really nice souvenirs. A few need repair, but overall they are really good finds. I did not have to travel overseas to find them either. Next week it is back to work work. I have another week off sometime later. I am looking at going to bring tools and overnight near Kincardine and some Bruce Peninsula for a color trip. expedition. I will start with the Comura

    Smooth Crinoid?

    I found this piece on the Missouri River outside of Kansas City. There were Carboniferous fossils in the same area. It looks like a crinoid stem, except it’s smooth? Also, the broken ends don’t show any sort of star pattern. I was curious, any ideas?
  10. As a late Father's Day gift and early Birthday present (I turn 39 tomorrow ) I spent 4 hours Saturday morning in the Glen Dean Limestone. A Carboniferous (Mississippian) formation. As usual, I was channeling my inner mountain goat and scrambling around a Central Kentucky roadcut. As I pulled up to the road cut my heart sank. Grass had grown on the exposure. If memory serves, the last time I was here was in the middle of September of last year and the exposure was bare. Most finds are small so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find much. Luckily my fear and apprehension was

    Just a couple crinoids

  12. I have this crinoid columnal that is 1/2 inch in diameter. It is the largest that I have come across. It made me wonder how large they get and since as a former coworker used to say "inquiring minds have to know" I poked around on the internet a bit. I came across a picture posted from Texas of 3/4 inch ones and read about some as large as an inch. Since I know that some stems have gotten over 100 feet in length 1 inch diameter columnals don't seem that big. How wide can they get? How wide have FF members found? Patti

    Just a little pebble

    Calling this a Picasso pebble, it's like a tiny work of art and I have no idea how to refer to this type of fossilization but it's very cool. Anyway, really curious what the two columns are that appear to be joined, the gravels it came from are mostly Eagle Ford but include QAL, a little Woodbine, and older.
  14. 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

    Beat Up Crinoid Crown???

    I picked up this crinoid filled matrix to put in the children's fossil pit. But as I examined it, I am "imagining" a crinoid crown, albeit, disarticulated. Any thoughts? Am I seeing things? Wishful thinking? Thanks Mike

    Crinoid stem fragments

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    Crinoid stem fragments. I divided them into two groups based on differences in shapes of basic stems. But it look like both groups have come from the same family based on internal structures so far less variety in family tree for that section of Devonian but I'm guessing at least three species are represented in this photo. Uncommon.

    First Fossil Hunt

    A few weeks back, I happened to accidentally find a fossil while out trail running - my first ever! I found this forum to get help identifying what it was, and figured that would be the end of it. But it turns out that the trail I have been running on for 20 years has lots of fossils, and now I can't stop seeing them! I have been reading this forum and following up with other resources to try to educate myself a little. My mother-in-law was super interested when I showed her a couple that I had picked up, so we decided to go back out there for our very first newbie fossil hunt. My MIL, i

    Texas Pennsylvanian - Crinoid?

    I found this little critter in some Pennsylvanian micro matrix I brought home. I am guessing it's an odd crinoid but it is also not like any I've come across. Any info will be appreciated! Size 1/4 inch

    Part of a crinoid calyx?

    Now, I have never seen one of these before. But… it feels like a crinoid piece of some sort. Only two of the rounded edges are visible, but I believe there are six sides to this. It reminds me of a connecting joint piece for a puzzle kit. Found it after cracking open this Coldwater Shale packstone from South Haven, Michigan.

    Toronto (Upper Ordovician) Fossil ID

    Hey everyone! I found my first fossil last weekend in a creek near the Don River in midtown Toronto. From my knowledge reading through this forum, it seems to be packed with crinoid stem fossils. I’d really appreciate a confirmation, to learn more about the age of the fossil and maybe even the species.

    Very well preserved crinoid

    Very well preserved crinoid cross in the internal body sutures in the bone and even some skin or tissues between the sections
  22. So I am driving on RT. 47 which leads to Vernonia and Mist, Oregon and a road cut that looks very similar to the Keasey locations I have been picking talus and for the first time it appears dry (seems to be a seep at the the top). In Oregon unless on private or in special circumstances BLM land you can not dig, you have to surface troll. I found a safe parking space and then crossed the road to enter the ditch. Once again close to traffic but people on this somewhat used road either slowed or pulled over, except for the truck who stopped and gave me directions to "a secret" place:), now that's

    Dunnicrinus sp. Columnals

    From the album: C&D Canal Micro Fossils

  24. Total fossil newbie here. A few weeks ago while running, I randomly noticed a weird rock that I thought might be a fossil, and some nice folks here helped me ID it as crinoidal sandstone with a few brachiopod impressions. I figured it was a one-time thing, but when I ran the same route today, I could help but keep an eye out and was shocked to find , now that my brain is primed to see them, that the ground in that area is just littered with crinoids and brachiopods. I've been running right over them on almost a weekly basis for a couple of decades without ever noticing. I know these are pr
  25. I think the first post I made here was about Partridge Point. I'm still not a fossil expert, but I thought this video I made might be useful for someone thinking about visiting this spot. It gives a good idea of the types of fossils that you can find. Maybe someone can help me identify a couple things I wasn't sure about.
