4-3-21 Re due at the Pennsylvanian Roadcut in Oglesby, Illinois


Recommended Posts

Nimravis

Since the weather was beautiful this morning after I did some rowing and grocery shopping,  I decided to hit the Oglesby Road cut again.

 

This cut exposes the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone Member of the Bond Formation. This was another great day, I found another Petalodus tooth today, it is nice, but not as nice as the one I found last Sunday.

I found a lot of huge brachiopods today after they popped out of the matrix.

 

The exposure-

This is really a great place to collect, especially after the Winter freeze.

I was just reading as you tagged me. Seems like I need to get back there before you scoop up all the Petalodus! Great finds as usual.

These are not Juresania. The 11th photo is different, probably Antiquatonia portlockiana. Brachiopod is probably Echinaria or  Echinochonchus sp in rest of photos.

Correct spelling is Linoproductus. I see you have misspelled it that way in the Forum several times. Maybe an admin can correct the past misspellings.

 

Bivalve is probably Wilkingia terminale.

Thanks much- if I did it once, I would have spelled it that way again.

You barely gave me a chance to get out there! :P Haha, just kidding, it’s awesome you could get out again and find another excellent tooth. You also got a nice collection of very large brachiopods, and bivalves are relatively rare there so that’s a quality find too.

I got bored and I could tell someone was out there since my visit last Sunday, I thought that maybe you had stopped out there.
