    Identification needed

    Looking to possibly identify the fossil directly below the 1 inch mark of the measuring tape in the first photo. Any possibly insight would be appreciated. Other fossils on this specimen include coral, bivalves, etc.
  2. First fossil? ever found from hitting rocks with hammer... I’m afraid to try to expose any more of it. Any ideas as to what it could be. First pics with ruler for scale and then without for better detail. I found it along Monster lake in an area where the sides had very recently eroded to expose lots of coal.

    Pit 11 Essexella

    Just wanting to confirm that this is a jellyfish.
  4. Hi! My son (10) has been very interested in Mazon Creek fossils for years, and has been asking to go down and try to hunt for fossils there. He’s quite serious, knows a lot about Mazon Creek for a kid, and has experience with both all-day hiking and moderately successful fossil-hunting. Is there any chance that someone does (or would do) a guided trip there? I would feel so much better trying the trip if we had more expert help. I know he can handle a long day in the sun hunting - but I honestly don’t have the skill to be 100% sure of what I’m doing, and I certainly don’t know exactly where to

    Pit 11 Spider ?

    Any chance this is a spider?
  6. Hello- I am hoping to get some help with id for this concretion recently found at braidwood, pit 11. It was found already opened, unfortunately we couldn’t locate the other 1/2 of the fossil. looking at my literature, I am wondering if this is a roach? Thanks for any help with the id of this fossil! -tom

    help with ID- Mazon Creek

    Hello- I am posting for the first time on this site, it's been a great resource for comparing some concretions I've found over the past few years. I've been taking my son on these collecting adventures, and we seem to find at least one nice specimen per trip- although it sometimes take a few months for them to crack open! We found this concretion in Braidwood area, pit 11. It had already split but still together. I have some similar looking shrimp but not 100% sure what this is because the overall form looks a little different, so hoping to get some help
  8. Another find in Pit 11 of Mazonia-Braidwood complex. Found already open on the ground. I was unable to find the other half. It looks a bit like the images of Neuropteris fimbriata and Cyclopteris trichomanoides in Jack Wittry's "The Mazon Creek Fossil Flora."

    Mazonia-Braidwood Vertebrae

    Pretty sure these are amphibian vertebrae. Found in Pit 11 in the Mazonia-Braidwood complex.

    Mazon Creek Unknown

    Probably not anything that is able to be ID’d but the “eye” spots make me wonder if it is something worthwhile.

    Unknown Mazon Pit 11

    I found this half nodule in the southern area of Pit 11 several years ago. I was told by someone at a fossil show it is likely a piece of seaweed. He described it as it being a wavy leaf similar in appearance to a lasagna noodle. Any information about it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  12. Pretty sure this is some sort of animal with a notochord but not sure. My fossil friends so far have suggested early amphibian, lamprey, or shark. Given that its from the Francis Shale of Mazon Creek I would think it unlikely to be an amphibian however. I specialize in Neoaves so this is a bit out of my expertise, but I'm pretty sure I've found something amazing!

    Mazon Creek Pit 11

    Next weekend we will be in Marblehead, Ohio visiting my sisters. I had hoped to stop at St Paul, Indiana on the way to look for some fossils. Unfortunately the quarry does not allow visitors at this point due to Covid. My thought then was to consider Mazon. About a month ago, a post was made similar to this one. It was suggested not to visit due to the ticks and other creepy crawlers. Are the critters still a problem??? Does covid close this park too?? I am all ears to suggestions. Thanks!! If this is not a good choice, there is always the go to Paulding, Ohio!!!! Mike
  14. Archisymplectes is an enigmatic worm from the Essex portion of the Mazon Creek Deposit. It is always preserved as just a color difference within the concretion. Specimens are nondescript preserving a basic worm shaped body without segmentation or any other obvious structures. Some specimens preserve an everted proboscis. This proboscis is what led the original author to classify it as a Nemertean or ribbon worm. There are no clear Nemerteans known in the fossil record however there are possible candidates dating As far back as the Cambrian. Ribbon worms are fascin
  15. On March first, I decided to rent a car and drive south. I'm finishing school in Chicago in May and am preparing to move west, so I really had no time to waste collecting Illinois. I hit three spots - one limestone road cut and one shale road cut in Oglesby, IL and the Mazon pits on the way back up to the city. I'm grateful to a few members for their posts and message replies regarding the road cuts, I couldn't have done this trip without them. I took off at 7 AM towards Oglesby. Here's the map, if you look at Oglesby on Google maps the location here should come together:

    Mazon Creek ID

    Hey Folks. I’m fairly positive this is a partial tullymonster. Found it yesterday, 3/7/20 in Mazonia south unit. Thanks in advance for any confirming comments.

    Mazon Creek Collecting Forms

    I have been looking into getting started collecting at Pit 11 in Mazon Creek within the Braidwood-Mazon State Park. I know that there are some forms I need to complete to collect at the site. From what I’ve found, the form isn’t even on the park’s website anymore and neither is the report that the form alludes to. Are these forms still valid? Where can I find them? Are there any other rules that I need to know?

    Mazon concretion IDs...

    Hey guys, I braved the creek yesterday on the first day of hunting season at Mazon. It was a thrilling first time getting to hunt there. These of the surface finds were pretty interesting looking and were among many duds, so I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas as to their classifications. The rest of the lot is in the freezer so look for my thread on that in a bit More concretions in the following posts: Thanks for looking!

    Thrifting..

    The fossil addict in me would really appreciate IDs on the following from the thrift store down the block: Mazon concretion, I thought it to be a crab at first glance but you tell me: And then this, which I couldn't peg for a mineral or some kind of fossilized pollen..... Really don't know what to think. It's about 0.5" square. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks for taking a look.

    Mazon Concretion

    Hey all! Just bought this piece at a rock shop here in Chicago. It was sold to me as a shrimp, the shop owner was pretty confident in this, but I'm pretty sure it's a fern instead. Not disappointed since I just appreciate the composition here, it's a super pretty one, kind of off-beat. Can anybody help ID the exact fauna? Thanks so much!
  21. Hello, I’ve noticed something odd with some of my mazon creek fossils that I haven’t looked at in a long time. Some of them seem to have small spots developing on them that I could swear weren’t there, say, 10 years ago. Anyone have any idea what these little circles are? There are 4 on the left Tully monster right above the white paint. And 1 on the right Tully just off the lower left edge of the body. And the white paint is a whole different issue... Open to any suggestions on how to remove that too... was thinking about rubbing alcohol. And then here is a shark egg cas

    Mazon Creek Fossil

    To those of you who are serious collectors, this is probably not thought of as an outstanding specimen, but as I'm primarily a mineral collector, I was thrilled to find this piece! I believe it's a section of Calamites, with what I consider some amazing crystallization of calcite and sphalerite.

    Mazon ID Help

    I am thinking that this is a Drevotella proteana, with, but not necessarily attached to, a Palaeolima retifera.
