Strophodonta demissa, Petrocrania hamiltoniae, Aulopora microbuccinata, Atactotoechus typicus, Hederella filiformis, Hederella concinnoides Silica formation David Thompson

Submitted on 2008-05-12 by David Thompson

Location (approximate): Milan, Washtenaw, MI

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: This brachiopod, Strophodonta demissa, has an inarticulate brachiopod, Petrocrania hamiltoniae, on it and on that inarticulate there is the tabulate coral, Aulopora microbuccinata., but not on the big brachiopod (?). In addition there are two Bryozoans on the brachiopods; Atactotoechus cf. typicus (a trepostome bryozoan) covers the side opposite the Inarticulate and Hederella filiformis (cyclostome bryozoan) on the base. Also Hederella concinnoides on the reverse and also on the inarticulate.

Submitter notes: This shows the thin layer on the bottom of the larger G. nodocostata, Although the previous photos identified the location of the Bivalves as Milan in Washtenaw county, this larger was found at Sylvania in Ohio. The bivalve is 2 1/4' long by 2' wide ( 5.5 X 5 cm).

Submitter notes: This example of Platyceras rarispinum from the Widder beds at Arkona, Ontario was the first gastropod that I found ever. It is also a nice example of the species.The snail is 1 3/4'(3.5 cm) high and wide.

Rhinocaris ehlersi Silica formation David Thompson

Submitted on 2008-06-09 by David Thompson

Location (approximate): Sylvania, Lucas, OH

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: There are four species of these large 'shrimp-like' animals in the Silica formation. This is an unusual picture as it shows this species from the top with both lateral plates, the axial ridge and prora with the rostrum broken off. This type of preservation is rare, normally only one of the lateral plates shows with the animal on its side. These show incredible iridescent colors when wet and just exposed but turn dull when dry.

Herbertocaris wideneri Silica formation David Thompson

Submitted on 2008-06-09 by David Thompson

Location (approximate): Sylvania, Lucas, OH

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: This is the second of the four species of Phyllocarid from the Silica. Unlike the previous photos, this species has clear patterns of lines in its lateral plates and tail pieces or somites. Also this shows one of the paired gastric teeth or mandibles used by Phyllocarids to eat their prey as shrimp and lobsters do today.

Dithyrocaris neptuni Silica formation David Thompson

Submitted on 2008-06-09 by David Thompson

Location (approximate): Milan, Washtenaw, MI

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: This believed to be the lateral plate of the third species of Phyllocarid from the Silica and shows a bit of the lateral ridge that is not present in other species of Phyllocarid from this formation. Due to the fragmented nature of the specimen however, this could also be part of one of the other species found in the Silica.

Taxa present: Dithyrocaris neptuni
