Scalaripora variosa, unusual bryozoan

Submitted by: David Thompson
Taxon: Scalaripora variosa
Submit date: 2008-02-24
Location (approximate): Charlevoix, Charlevoix, MI
Stratigraphy: Traverse Formation
Age: Erian (Middle Devonian)
Submitter notes: These three views are of an unusual bryozoan that is rectangular rather then stick-like or encrusting or fan shaped. It seems to be unique to the Devonian of Western Michigan and does not appear in the East I am aware of. These are in matrix but as individual pieces they can be triangular and look almost man-made. these are from the 'Whiskey Creek' formation of the Charlevoix Limestone
