5-2-21 Oglesby, Illinois Pennsylvanian Roadcut

After seeing @connorp Fossil of the month entry that came from this location, I decided to stop out at this roadcut for a couple hours today. The weather was perfect, high 70’s and like almost every other trip, I had the place to myself. 
 

This cut exposes the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone Member of the Bond Formation and never disappoints, that is if you are looking for brachiopods. Unfortunately, this time I did not find and shark teeth, like I did on my last two recent trips.

I did find one of my largest Echinoconchus brachiopods that I have ever found.

The other usual suspects were also found- Wilkingia terminalis Bivalve, and the following other brachiopods- Lindoproductus cora, Antiquatonia portlockiana, Composita argentia and Neospirifer, an inarticulate brachiopod. I also found a few pieces with nice crystallization.
