HARDER and Harder to obtain fossils from this private quarry in Middleport, New York

Conularids are conical-shaped, extinct marine invertebrates that are considered Jellyfish. Today Jellyfish have no hard structures but in the past they had hard cone-shaped structures. They are found in Silurian through Middle and Upper Paleozoic marine outcrops around the world. The exoskeleton is characterized by numerous, closely spaced, horizontal ridges. Most specimens are small but some reached lengths of nearly 12 inches.

The Conularid is 1 inch long by 3/4 at it’s widest. It sits on gray matrix 3 3/4 by 3 1/2 inches. There is also a FENESTELLA bryozoan on the plate.
