There were plenty of straight-shelled Nautiloids, as seen in
the pics below. At the second site, a coiled or possibly curved Cephalopod was
found. That picture is found with the fossils from the second site.
Here's a frequently misidentified fossil. It's the ciphuncle
of a Cephalopod. The ciphuncle runs down the middle of the shell. The one in the
picture below looks like a string of beads and is often mistaken for
Ichnofossils (Trace Fossils)
A few kinds of Ichnofossils were found. A few slabs had worm
traces which riddled the surface.
Courtney's video of this field trip, he finds a big slab that is covered
with holes, possibly made by clams or brachiopods.

This site was unusually loaded with large Bryozoan colonies
like the ones pictured below.
Of course there were plenty of ramose (branching) bryozoans too.
