Oxinpes Foraminifera Fossil

Images taken from microscope of the foraminiferan fossil. This fossil was identified as an Oxinpes. It was found in the Beechwood Limestone just below the New Albany Shale. That layer dates to the Devonian Period. The locality was Clark County Indiana USA. This was a picture I took over 10 years ago from one of Dr. Conkins microscope slides. It was never used in publication and was a demonstration on how to use Adobe Photoshop to stack the microscope images, add the scale, and print directly to make a copy ready page for printing.
