    • Hi @Alex-Buchanan! I’m looking for resources that might help us narrow down the ID. Do you know how old this is? https://www.macrostrat.org can help! Also, for the eMuseum, we can only accept individual fossils, not multiples. Can you edit the photos so they’re of only a single specimen? Thanks, Sam

    • Thanks Samantha! I don’t have the exact location on a map, but I think I’ve found it on macrostat – Ludlow to Lochovian (427.4 to 410.8 Ma) fossiliferous shale, mudstone, siltstone, black shale, limestone, quartz-lithium sandstone.

    • There are quite a few incomplete and not completely exposed fossils. I don’t have one with face, back, and tail available to help identification. Would it help if it’s just a single rock (even if there are

    • Even if there are multiple fossils in that one rock?

      • Hi, if there are multiple specimens in a rock measure and photograph each one separately if you can. You can digitally add a circle around which specimen you are referring to in the gallery to make it clear. This enables paleontologists studying the specimens to decipher which one the entry is referring to.
