Grammysia nodocostata Silica formation David Thompson

Submitted on 2008-05-13 by David Thompson

Location (approximate): Sylvania, Lucas, OH

Strat unit: Silica formation

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).

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

Protitanicthys rockportensis Silica formation Ken Dobson

Submitted on 2008-10-07 by Ken Dobson

Location (approximate): Milan, Washtenaw, MI

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: This image is of a large plate from the head of a Devonian Fish. The Nuchal plate was at the very back of the top of the head and the notch at the top of the photo would have been the back towards the tail area. U.S. ten cent piece for scale.

Location (approximate): Sylvania, Lucas, OH

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: These three Paraspirifer bownockeri brachiopods show Hederella bryozoa on the bottom fossil and Cornulites worm scars, and the holes made by Clionoides, a boring sponge on the upper left example. From the Ken Dobson Collection.

Orthospirifer cooperi, Petrocrania hamiltonae, Hederella Silica formation Ken Dobson

Submitted on 2008-10-07 by Ken Dobson

Location (approximate): Sylvania, Lucas, OH

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: The muddy bottom of the Devonian seas over Michigan seemed to have few hard places for animals to attach and therefore almost any hard surface was prime real estate. This inarticulate has attached itself to the larger brachiopod for a safe place but this proved a mistake as they died togather. Some small bryozoan also have grown on both.

Orthospirifer cooperi, Platyceras bucculentum Silica formation Ken Dobson

Submitted on 2008-10-07 by Ken Dobson

Location (approximate): Milan, Washtenaw, MI

Strat unit: Silica formation

Submitter notes: This seems to be just a random association between this Platyceras snail and the large brachiopod, Orthospirifer. These are always suspect as the snails are noted to bore into brachiopods to eat their contents as they also did with crinoids.
