The fossil hash is dominated by gastropod steinkerns, bryozoan
steinkerns and cyclocystoid plates. Less common are pelecypod steinkerns,
annelid worm tube steinkerns and brachiopod steinkerns.
Cyclora minuta and other gastropods.
I'm not sure of the genera of these bryozoans, but the preservation is
unique because the zoecia are preserved as rods rather than as
Worm Tube Steinkerns
Internal molds of the annelid worm tube, Cornulites.
Nuculites, Cycloconcha and/or Lyrodesma.
Zygospira is the only brachiopod recognizable as a steinkern in this
Crinoid columnals and fragments are abundant.
Cyclocystoid plates are unusually abundant. Most of them are Zygocycloides.
