I got permission from my Tooele County to collect and study some of the rocks and fossils on county land in the Oquirrh Mountains (Utah). I’m an environmental science major soon to enter graduate school, not a geologist. So I like to study and collect rocks more as a hobby. The fossils I collect are from 2 separate canyons. The 1st site is high up in elevation on a limestone shale cliff face. This post consists of fossils found at the 1st canyon site. I will post pictures from the 2nd site on a seperate post. I’m trying to ID the fossils, although I have a pretty good idea on what some of them are. I’d appreciate any comments you may have.
Hi Jenny! What’s the age of these? That first one looks like one of the syringoporid or syringophyllid tabulates… probably the latter since it doesn’t appear to have those tubes(stolons?) that connect the corallites
