Clueless... Help?

Recommended Posts

First I want to thank you guys so much! I have been able to identify 99% of the fossils I have been finding! Now, that isn't to say that I may be overlooking a lot of fossils by ignorance, but I am definitely improving thanks to The Fossil Forum and all the great members who have taken the time to help identify the fossils I have posted. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

So, here we go, this may take a couple of posts. I'm trying to get better with the camera, but struggling with closeups :)

Ordovician

Galena Formation, probably Stewartville Member

Note very bottom uniformally rounded "node"

Note upper left hand corner is the bottom of the unknown, maybe fossil :)

This is a very interesting "rock". The whole thing could be a mass of fossils. I say this because right above the round thing, which does not look like a brach or bivalve to me, is a tiny crinoid maybe, and towards the top I see about the same thing. Inbetween is an area with a lot of unique "bumps". I wish I was better with the camera is there is a lot going on here :)

Right is a crinoid. But what is going on with the left one? I've seen a lot of ceph impressions and this just doesn't look like them. Same area and time, I'm guessing :)

Don't have a clue. Does not look like any of the reps (sunflower coral) I've seen. Again, lots of little "bumps".

Heavily fossilized rock, but none are familiar to me :)

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance! Bev :)

The more I learn, I realize the less I know.

First two photos may be of a couple of snails conglomerated together. Third photo looks like a brach fragment. Fourth probably a bryozoan, possibly a coral. Lastn photos are bryozoans.
