Fossils Found That Day
There were not as many Isotelus trilobites found, as we might
expect. Here's one decent enrolled specimen with some plate fragmentation. It's
still a really nice specimen for surface collecting.
One member was very excited to find this beautiful Isotelus
trilobite specimen! It looks perfectly clean! but...
But... when he turned it over,...
No head. That's the way it is with surface collecting Isotelus. They are most often dug, carefully cleaned and then glued back together.
Here's a fragement of the Isotelus Thorax, that was more often
found that day.
And a Mt Orab field trip report would not be complete without
pictures of some of the Flexicalymene trilobites found. It was predicted that at
least 100 Flexi's would be found. The actual count, although I didn't count, was
around 50 to 75. Just a guess, though.
