A hand lens, on this site, is an essential tool for finding all kinds of interesting fossils. This rock (below) had a number of Ostracodes on it!

Bryozoans

A common Bryozoan found encrusting the rock surfaces on this site, is Aspidopora (two pics below). PA245080.JPG PA245084.JPG

Another bryozoan commonly found on this site is Prasapora simulatrix, seen as cone shaped bryos below. Be sure to check be circular bottom sides of these bryozoans for the rare and prized Ontopleurid trilobite, Meadowtownella (formerly Primaspis).
