    Fossilised worms?

    Please forgive what is no doubt a very naive question, but I've just found these 2 pebbles on a beach on the Isle of Man, and knowing nothing at all about fossils I'm wondering what they are. Many thanks

    Strange Worm-like impression on rock

    Hello fellow TFF Members! I am sorry I am not very active lately, but my job slows me down.... ANYWAYS! I was searching a creek bed by future new house in Illinois, and I stumbles across this - (picture below) Could anyone tell me what creature made this impression? I'm assuming a worm-like creature due to its obvious segments.

    Bore holes?

    I am a novice.I live in south western Ohio (Ordovician). I have some acreage and lots of hills and creeks. I have been picking up what look like sedimentary rocks and many are loaded with marine fossils. The photos below show a piece of soft rock (sandstone I think, maybe shale?) with apparent bore holes (photo 1). I whacked this piece along the edge and a chunk popped off and some brown stuff was in between the layers (photo 2, close up photo 3). Are these spots the remains of the critters that made the holes in the surface of the rock or just some brown gunk? Under magnification

    Worm tubes?

    Found this curiously textured Rick yesterday. Upon cleaning it noticed some interesting items embedded in the side of it. Also curious what causes the texture on this type rock. Are they work tubes? Could the white item coming out of the rock be a worm? Found north of Crosbyton, TX.
  5. About a month or so ago, I had a few hours to kill and decided on a whim to go search for the Lecthaylus gregarius in Blue Island, Illinois. I walked down to the river and found the Lockport shale which was really fun and easy to split apart, but all I came across were lots of plates of worms like this one: I wasn't even sure if these were Silurian annelids. In the end, I was unsuccessful in finding Lecthaylus gregarius, however I did find these fossils: If anyone has more info on genus types, etc. would be greatly appreciated!
  6. Went to a new spot along a creek behind an old quarry in Racine County WI. Looked like the area had been pretty well picked over. Lots of broken rock fragments, dug up pieces, etc. Had a great day though and it beat having to go to work that day lol. Not sure of the names of some of the pieces. One thing i have found in large abundance here in Racine and Kenosha Counties is the black lava Igneous rock. Some of them are Obsidian and some are Diorite. In this location there was buckets full of it everywhere. No Trilobites at all though which was my main goal. You never no what you will come acro
  7. Hello Please could you tell me what these marks are on this rock I found on the Northumberland coast? Is this a type of mudstone? Please tell me everything you can about what these marks are, what made them, how, when, etc? Is this a rare or common find? On two of the close-ups you can see that there are longitudinal lines within the markings (if this helps the ID). Also, why are the markings a copper-brown colour? Could they be a result of prehistoric mud worms? Today I found another circle marked rock, but this time the mark is white with no discernible details. Is this the same as the abov

    Mazon Creek - Polychaetes

    Here are the pictures: I am sure on the ID on this one but it was nice to see open after the gift that is winter. Mazopherusa prinosi Fan Worm (this isn't from pit 11 either - it is from the braceville location) Here is another I am fairly confident on: I believe this to be a Plain Worm Astreptoscolex Anasillosus..from Pit 11...Do folks agree? Finally, this one I am confused on...any thoughts? image will be in first reply.

    Anyone Know What These Are?

    Iv had these worm things for quite a while, i found them in a river in the UK, unfortunately i found the fossils broken in 2 in the water but the 2 pieces join together perfectly. Iv been wondering for some time what they are and also what their in as what now is rock must have been some soft substance because they are tunnelling inside what now is rock too, the entire fossil is a V shape, much like if you spread your 2 fingers apart, quite an unusual shape. There has to be over 30 of these things crawling around. Any ideas?

    Mating Devonian Worms?

    Collected this at the Montour Pit (PA) this month - looks like worms mating, which of course begs the question what event froze all of them in time at this moment? Any ideas for identifying these creatures? This had us all intrigued and stumped. Three views show the two halves of the shale plus two closeups. I recently took some closeup images and compiled them into a sheet - this may help the identification process... Devonian Worms_Montour PA_ID V1_by Michael and Nancy Tomczyk.pdf
