The best gastropod award goes to these two specimens of the ornate monoplacophoran, Phragmolites dyeri. found by Cindy. Nice!

Click here to see Cindy's photos of the other great fossils she found in the trip that day!

 Second place goes to this large internal mold of a gastropod. What appears to be rock at the base is actually another whorl of the snail shell.

Here are two more kinds of Gastropods we found: The monoplacophoran Sinuites and a spired gastropod, maybe Lophospira.

Here is double specimen, a high spired snail, maybe Paupospira, next to a short spired one, probably a platycerid.

Lots of other gastropod internal molds were found, like the one shown below.

This next gastropod has some nice low spires. It could be a Liospira.

Not many Cephalopods were found. None coiled as in previous trips. Here's a picture of a small fragment. It's still not a bad specimen. 

Group Portraits.

Here are the pictures of some of the collections that members gathered that day. Enjoy.
