Ichno Fossils

Recommended Posts

Went fossil collecting today, it was too beautiful to be in front of a computer working! Found a number of Ichno Fossils consisting of Arborichnus Repetita (small horseshoe crab resting traces) and what could be trilobite tracks? Comments and identification are welcomed. Carboniferous Period/Pottsville Formation/Alabama USA

Arborichnus Repetita resting trace to the left, not sure what the trace is to the right?

Lower portion, appears to be a party of AR resting traces and the larger tracks could be that of trilobites?

Yep Ric, it was a nice day down here too! Fossil hunting for traces or critters or plants would have been much more appealing than pulling weeds. :) Thanks for the photos--great stuff! Regards, Chris

:wub: , as always with your ichnos!

I don't know what made the larger tracks; could have been trilos, I suppose, but they are not the typical cruziana usually ascribed to them.

Thanks Chaz, I saw this pic on this site which looks like those larger tracks... they may have been guessing as well???? http://petrifiedwoodmuseum.org/tracefossils.htm

It would be nice to know what made them, already have several others that look like the ones found today.

I would guess those are trilo tracks just based on what I've seen on ebay... You may know the ones I'm talking about - if not, do a search, they're on there regularly.

Anyway, great stuff, you always have interesting things to show!
