Fossils Found at Site 2

Bivalves (clams)

There were a lot more clams found at the second site, than at the first. The two common types were Ambonychia and Caritodens, both shown in the next shot. The second and third shot are Ambonychia, cast and an internal molds, respectively. Note the surface features and the dark brown coloring.

Another common bivalve found was Modiolopsis.


Just as with the first site, only fragments of Flexicalymene and Isotelus were found. But on some rocks, both trilobite fragments were found in great abundance. On the rock below, we see an Isotelus hypostome in the lower left corner.


Cyclonema with shell features were abundant here, as shown in the next two pictures. In the first picture, the snails are mostly rested on top for the photograph, but one is on the surface of a slab. In the second photo, they are both attached to the rock.

Cephalopods were more common at the second site, too. Some showed the internal features, such as the Siphuncle (first pic).

Some of the Cephalopods showed internal details of the external chambers.

Most were just internal molds.
