Site 2
Inarticulate Brachiopods

The inarticulate brachiopods found at site 2 included the not-so-common Schizocrania filosa.

...as well as the inarticulate brachiopod Trematis millepunctata.


There were a large assortment of snails at the second site too.

There was at least one Cyrtolites found. This is a Monoplacophoran.(below)

Since this site exposed the Arnheim Formation, there were layers with millions of tiny snails called Cyclora, preserved in a yellow-brown phosphate. These layers are loaded with other microfossils, including Cyclocystoid plates.
