They could just be diagenetic, but I attached a bunch of photos. I do a lot of collecting from this formation so I’d love an answer. Enjoy, hope to hear back from everyone. -Kyle Attachments:You must be logged in to view attached files.

Chuck (@cferrara), Gail (@gail-fazzina), Paul (@paul-fazzina), and Sue (@scoller) — have you found specimens like this in southwest FL?
