Return of the Rostroconch Fossil

 

Recently, I got an email from Erik about a fossil he had found in the Louisville area. It turns out it was a Hippocardia cuneus (Conrad, 1840) rostroconch fossil. It was found in the Jeffersonville Limestone of Jefferson County, Kentucky USA. The fossil dates to the Middle Devonian Period.


 

What makes this find more unique is that Erik contacted me in March 2010 with a picture of another rostroconch fossil his son had found. He told me it was found it about the same spot as the first one found about 14 years ago. Amazing! Thanks to Erik for the images and letting me know about this nice fossil find.
