    Yeah, it’s pretty cool. The author covers not only well-known and spectacular sites, but also random, small sites like this one. I got a couple of other good leads besides this one, so it was worth it for me. 😁

    Paleo selfie! Here I am, in the field… if you consider the parking lot of a motel “in the field”. I got a lead from the book “101 American Fossil Sites You’ve Gotta See” that there were graptolites here, and it turns out there were a few. Check out my fossils for pics! Fossils can pop up in the most everyday of places.

    • Someone recommended to us that “101 American Fossil Sites You’ve Got to See” book, but we haven’t had a chance to check it out. Is it a good read?

    A group of graptolites exposed on strata that’s been repositioned vertically. The graptolites could not be easily extracted so they were left in place.

    This amazing fossil was labeled ‘various compressed plant stems’ at the Virginia Museum of Natural History. #fossil

    Two brachiopod molds, the larger one with broken bits of shell still attached. The dimensions refer to the smaller brachiopod, the other is 2.1cm x 3.0cm

    Brachiopod molds in hard shale. The removable half of the mold fits with the better-defined heart-shaped brachiopod. The other mold may be another heart-shaped brachiopod, and deeper in the rock it opens up into a smaller (possible) brachiopod mold.

    Yeah, I think you’re right. I updated the order based on your recommendation. Thanks for the help!

    I don’t think there are any bryozoans on this piece. I looked a little more closely, and I updated with a few more pictures of fossils I found. On the reverse side is this interesting critter:

    I don’t think it’s a bryozoan; I want to say it’s a crinoid, with a little stem to the left, but maybe I’m just projecting a crinoid shape onto it.

    I think you’re right, it looks a lot like some of the brachiopods here:
