    Grouping of broken brachiopod (?) shells. One shell is removable (see 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th pictures). The interior of this shell shows two strong midline creases and two indentations towards the umbo, which may be muscle attachment areas or points for hinge articulation. Slight costae are evident on the exterior and interior.

    Another shell fragment (7th and 8th pictures) may or may not be related to the other shells on this fossil. The interior of the removable shell The back of the fossil has some possible small crinoid stems and other remains.

    Hi, @jbauer ! I wasn’t able to extract it, so this fossil is still at the site.

    A group of brachiopods; the rock was too hard for extraction.

    @jbauer – I don’t see much that I could definitively identify as bivalves, they mostly seem like brachiopods. Then again, it could be that I’m assuming that I’ll find brachiopods and that’s making me inclined to see brachs. I’ll try to keep a more attentive eye out for bivalves. 😁

    Hi, @jbauer ! Honestly I’m not certain at all, that was just my best guess. Do you think this is more of a bivalve? Thanks! 😁

    • @nathan-newell – I am not sure either! It is so hard to tell with partial shells. It looks like it could be argued either way. Are there many bivalves in the Devonian of that area? In my experience, bivalves don’t preserve as well or as often in the Paleozoic. My bivalve knowledge doesn’t really extend out of the Cincinnatian (where there are only a few common species). 0_o

    I use a book called “Fossil Shark Teeth of the World” by Joe Cocke. It’s not Florida-specific, but maybe it would be helpful. Good luck!

    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.
