7.7" Fossil Brachiopod (Rafinesquina) and Bryozoan Plate - Indiana

This is a 7.7" wide plate of fossil brachiopods (Rafinesquina), bryozoans, and trilobite fragments, collected from the Ordovician-aged Waynesville Formation (Blanchester Series) in Franklin County, Indiana. It comes from a new lease we started digging in the summer of 2023.

This specimen is accompanied by a display stand.

Bryozoans are microscopic aquatic invertebrates that live in colonies, forming skeletal structures similar to corals. Each skeletal structure has a form unique to each particular species. The individual byrozoans forming these colonies are filter feeders called zooids, straining nutrients from the surrounding water.
