New York Devonian Penn Dixie Matrix Finds


Recommended Posts

JamieLynn

 Finally getting around to posting some of my New York Devonian  Penn Dixie matrix finds! So much neat crinoid stuff, the occasional trilo bit and some other goodies!  Someday, I hope to visit and maybe find some "Big" stuff! 

 

The CRINOIDS.....so many amazing shapes. I love Crinoid Geometry:

(all are around 2-5 mm)

The Trilo Bits: (2-5mm) probably Eldredgeops 

A friend was trying to type in Pygidium and it auto corrected to Pudgy Idiom.....so yeah. That's what they are now.

Plus this nice sized one (5mm) in situ with a crinoid!

Micros are so much fun!

 

I think your "Spyroceras" is actually a Tentaculites.  Superficially similar but a very different sort of an animal.

I agree with Don - Tentaculites

I also think that's Tentaculites. 

What lovely pictures, I adore some of those crinoid columnals. :b_love1:

Nice photography.  The variety and geometry of the crinoids is amazing.  They maybe under appreciated fossils but they are just so neat to me.

Lovely little things! And another great thing about them is that they don't take up very much space :)

I am constantly amazed at crinoid bits and pieces...the biological architecture is just so diverse!
