Recent Devonian Fossil Finds

The snow has pretty much melted and it is above freezing so time for a quick jaunt to look for fossils. The Devonian corals are always good to find and some of them made an appearance. This first set of fossils though are crinoid stems with branch remanents. I sometimes wonder if they are holdfasts of some sort.



Here is a fossil of a brachiopod that might be a Brevispirifer.
 These next three images are of the Aulacophyllum horn coral that has a diamond like shape.  Found in the Jeffersonville Limestone of Jefferson County Kentucky.
