Page 6: Other Fossils Found That Day

Here are some of the interesting fossils found that day that did not win awards but are in every way interesting and exciting.

This is the glabella (face plate) of the trilobite Flexicalymene meeki

Here we have what we often call "dumb bells" (above). It's the trace fossil of a worm looking from the underside of a rock. The worm was making a track that shows it poking out to the surface of the ocean floor in two places! The scientific name is Diplocraterion

Lots of the Brachiopod, Rafinesquina, were found (below).

Interestingly, many of the Cephalopods, Brachiopods and other shells, were filled in with calcite crystals, making mini-geodes. Here's one that was found in the center of a rock.

And lastly, here are just a few of the Dry Dredgers that made this trip possible! Thanks to everyone who participated! It was, for the third year running, a big success.

Hope you enjoyed the photos as much as we enjoyed the fun! See you next year!
