Ancient Life in Kansas Rocks, part 9 of 27
A piece of limestone on the right side of the photograph (slightly enlarged) contains both a fusulinid and a fragment of the lacy type of bryozoans termed fenestellids, another specimen of which is on the right side of the photo. Fenestellids grew in colonies of fan-shaped fronds cemented to an object on the bottom of the sea. (Beil Limestone, Upper Pennsylvanian)
