Hi Folks-

Here are some more already opened concretions from a recent Pit 11 trip.

Let me know if you disagree with any of my IDs.

1) Priapulites konecrniorum

I cannot make out much detail on #1 but I am pretty certain it is not priapulites. My guess is either a trail or possibly a poorly preserved Fossundecima. I would agree that #2 might be a piece of a Tully but it may also just be the way the concretion weathered once split. I think # 3 is just mineralization. I agree with the shrimp molt. I believe #5 is a partial coprinoscolex.

Definately a promising start.
