    I was combing a beach on the southern shore of Lake Ontario for fossils when I found these. The surrounding rocks are Ordovician and contain mainly crinoids and branching corals. I found these two in the water a few feet off of the shore. They look like cephalopods to me, based on the segmentation and shape, and I have seen a nautiloid fossil that was found there a few days ago, but I don't know what kind of cephalopod specifically. I thought the first one might be a crinoid stem except that it tapers off slightly.
  2. Found on the Delaware coast, in the surf. The segmented columns are irregular, waving independently as opposed to a regular pattern as in a hard coral. They seem to come out of a central stem like a crinoid, but there are so many tendrils, I am doubting that guess. My 7 yo son found it and is dying to learn more about it, so a genus would help a lot. Thanks! Paul
  3. Hi all - complete newbie here. Just wondering could anyone provide identification of this fossil creature. Source: a stone in a loose open dry wall typical of farms in the west of Ireland Location: Athenry area, County Galway, Ireland Notable feature: there is a one cm deep depression above the segmented component Many thanks in advance. https://postimg.cc/y3R0H6RW EDIT: Image posted here so it will remain long after the off-site link goes dead. -Ken

    Hi, these were found in limestone shale in a canyon in Western Montana. Do you think these are crinoid columns, some kind of annelid, or other? Thanks!

    Part of a segmented fossil?

    Greetings! I found this fossil on Sunday in Bradenton, Fl (Manatee County) It is 1.5”/38 mm long, 1.5” wide and .5” thick. It appears to be broken on 3 edges. I tried to photograph it on white background but some pics where I am holding it turned out sharper. Some of the things I found nearby were horse teeth, chunks of meg teeth, tiger shark and hemipristis teeth and the most massive Florida horse conch and mollusks I’ve ever seen. I’ve been trying to learn the age and specific formations that I hunt in but it’s been confusing to me. Is it possible that I’m in the peace river formati
  6. Hi friends, I have several of these fossils. I think they look like some sort of worm fossil but can't find anything on the internet similar for comparison. I really don't think it is trilobite tracks because it is deeper. Sorry, I could only get 2 of my pictures to upload. Thanks so much, I would really appreciate any info.

    What is this fossil

    I found this years ago - ran across it in a box recently. It is kind of a medium grain sandstone, my collection recollection is that it would have been in Pennsylvanian strata, a thin (maybe 10 inch) sandstone overlying a small coal layer. I always recalled it as a bit of a mystery. It was before the internet - so we were all a lot slower and dumber then. I always assumed it was some type of a trace fossil - a filled in burrow? BUT - the main thinner segmented tube presents a faint flattened oval or crushed tube when looking at the end. Hard to get a picture of that. Also - it appears to lay

    Found in Kent County, Maryland near Worton. I have no idea what made the impression. The rock's girth is about that of a soda can top.
  9. My son and I found both sides of this split rock on a steeply wooded slope in southwestern PA (near Wexford PA). I think it is a fossil but not certain. It looks like a segmented worm or possibly plant structure. If straightened out, it would measure 4-5 inches, depending on which surface. 0.25 inch wide. Looking for any information or ideas. First find in this area.

    Possible Fossil?

    Hi All! I found this interesting piece of rock near my house in Alpine, Wyoming. I was at approximately 7000ft elevation in the Snake River Range when I found it. I don't know what era the rock here is from. Fossil Butte National Monument is about 100 miles south of here with fossils from the Eocene if that helps. Thanks for looking, Steve.

    Texas Cretaceous Mystery

    This slab is a piece of a larger rock with lots of these fossils. You can also see them on the edge of the slab in cross-section. I hesitate to make any guesses on this one, it's like nothing I've seen. The hash marks are mm. From another place on the slab

    Orthocone Identification [SOLVED]

    Found this fossil in a creek in middle Tennessee. I originally thought it was a crinoid column, until user ynot pointed out that it was more than likely an orthocone shell. Judging from where it was found, it seems to be from the Ordovician. So now my question is: what species of orthocone do you think it is? Note the size (5 1/2" long, 2" wide) and the segmented pattern. Thanks for the help!

    Trout River find

    This is an image of a fossil discovered by my daughter at Trout River. Previously she has uncovered crinoid calyxes (calyxi?), corals, and shells. This seems a little too large for a crinoid stem since it measures about 1" top to bottom in the picture. Anyone able to id this? She would greatly appreciate any information.
  14. Hello, This fossil was found in Europe, northern Poland to be exact. Does anybody know what is it? Thanks, Diana
  15. I cut a slab off a nice looking peice of rock to see if there was cabbing material ins ide and found a small wormlike fossil along with a few unidentifyable pces of other things incased in sedimentary deposite then silified afterwards I assume. The "worm" is 20mm long aproximately unknown age of rock but this area ; Thompson Okanogan region, of BC has a very mixed up geology; there are even islands that used to be off the coast of California buried here somewhere. I'd be interested to know if there is any discription of things like this or someone can say what it is. Thanks Lloyd
