Here are some more Flexicalymene Trilobites. The small ones are Flexicalymene, from the Liberty Formation and the larger ones are Flexicalymene retrorsa from the Waynesville Formation

It's too bad my picture is out of focus. This is a really nice grouping of more than 10 Rusophycus (Flexicalymene burrows).

And now for the MINERAL FINDS! Here's a nicely formed Pyrite crystal sitting right on top of a shale nodule. For more information on Pyrite and other minerals, contact the Cincinnati Mineral Society, our sister group at http://mineralsociety.org/
