Second Site

We moved on to a second site, which was a road cut just a mile or so away. This was a great site for viewing the Arnheim Formation. We found some nice things there, too.

Fossils Found on Site 2

The second site exposed a layer of the Arnheim that has a fairly rare brachiopod. But it's abundant in this thin layer. The name is Retrosirostra carleyi. It looks somewhat like a Hebertella, but the triangular pedicle opening stretches along the pedicle valve. Here are 4 photos of ones found that day. Note in the first picture, the pedicle opening is visible, but, unfortunately, is covered up with debris. A modesty shield! :-)

There were lots of Rafinesquina too.
