  1. Good Evening, Everyone, A few years ago I had a question about this fossil being a coprolite. I would like to, again, thank everyone willing to help ID these things. Coprolites are outside of my wheelhouse, so hearing from others with more experience is very helpful! I have a new question. I'm attempting to catalog all of my fossils, and I've found a few that are curious. I was thinking that it might be interesting to get some other opinions. The first is below... Is it possible that this is a suggestive geological deception, or
  2. Hi all, I recently made a trip out to Wilson Clay Pit in Brownwood, Texas with my local paleo society. I've found several recognizable things, and a few I need some help identifying. I apologize in advance to @erose who gave me an idea on one bivalve that I failed to write down, and thereafter promptly forgot! I think the tooth is Petalodus sp., just need confirmation. I'd love a genus for the clams, and I have no idea at all what the small plate-shaped fossil is. Thanks!
  3. My beautiful wife scheduled a three night stay at a cabin in a Thousand Trails campground near Lake Texoma. We were to arrive on Sunday and check out on Wednesday. So, I figured that, since I hadn't been fossil hunting in months, I would schedule a trip to central Texas to follow the Texoma trip. I set up a rendezvous point in Fairfield, Texas to meet my dad on that Wednesday, and head off toward Brownwood and Cisco, Texas. I figured that the fossil hunt would begin then. But that's not quite how things played out... My two oldest daughters and I met my wife and youngest daugh

    Texas Pennsylvanian Coprolite?

    On my last visit to the Wilson Clay Pit in central Texas I stumbled across this curious piece. It is approximately 6 cm long and 1.5 cm wide. The surface is irregular and rounded. Near one end, an object about 5 millimeters in length, that looks like a brachiopod or pelecypod is attached. The object looks partially buried in the surface of the piece. The piece is below. The scale is in centimeters. Below is a close-up of the attached object... I can see three possibilities. Its geological (matrix) with an attached bivalve (if it is a bi

    Wilson Clay Pit mystery

    I found this at the Wilson Clay Pit in Brown County, TX. It is Pennsylvanian. I really don't have any idea as to what it could be. Any ideas out there? The hash marks are 1mm.
  6. I found this at the Wilson Clay Pit in July of 2015. I'm not sure what it is. Its quite small, approximately 8 millimeters. It doesn't have the look of a crinoid stem or brachials. Is it from a crinoid? Is it possibly a echinoid spine of some type? It is from the Harpersville Formation, Late Pennsylvanian, Virgilian Stage (288 to 286 MYA). The specimen is below. The scale is in centimeters. Any help is appreciated, as always...

    Wilson Clay Pit Unknown

    On one of our last trips to the Wilson Clay Pit, I found this. I have been unable to identify it with my current resources. It looks like some type of bivalve, but I can't find anything with the same ornamentation. It appears to have spines, most of which have been broken off. The specimen is below. The scale is in centimeters. Hopefully someone can help me identify it. Thanks in advance!!
  8. On our last excursion to the Wilson Clay Pit, I stumbled across this curious specimen. It was mostly covered in matrix and I spent some time cleaning it up. The piece has a curious shape. It has a "V" shape, with one side curved and covered with striations. The other side of the "V" is straight and flat. The two sides of the "V" are connected with a flat plane of material, reminiscent of a scapula. The complete specimen is below. The scale is in centimeters... Below is a close-up of the striated, curved part... The other side of the "V" has a rectangular cross
  9. We visited the Wilson Clay Pit in Coleman County, Texas last April. My dad stumbled across this little guy, which, according to the Color Guide of Pennsylvanian Fossils of North Texas (McKinzie and McLeod) is Pronechinus sp., a rare carboniferous echinoid known only from the Wilson Clay Pit and Diyarbakir Province in Turkey. Here is a link to the specimen found in Turkey. Notice the same double pores on the ambulacral plates as seen in the specimen we found. Scale is in centimeters...
  10. My dad found this unusual specimen at the Wilson Clay Pit. Neither of us have any idea of what it could be. Could it be some type shark cartilage? I have no experience with Paleozoic shark cartilage. The scale is in centimenters... Thanks for any help you can offer... As a side note, here is something else my dad found about a year ago at the Wilson Clay Pit. I thought it was drool-worthy...
