Dry Dredgers Field Trip

Maysville, KY

Page 3: Fossils Found: Bryozoans

The bryozoans were also calling out, in colors in contrast with the shale.

The bryozoans were more interesting than usual due to the wide variety on this site. Some really nice examples of the unusual bryozoan, Escharopora hilli. were found. Some are shown below (5 photos).
