Paleozoic Foraminifera - 350 million years old

Dr. James E. Conkin and Prof. Barbara M. Conkin gave us specimens and images of Paleozoic foraminifera. Now we integrated some of their images of 350 Mio. year old foraminifera from the Lower Mississippian of Missouri and Illinois, USA. It is planned to work on more Paleozoic foraminifera, though the forms are primitive and not that beautiful as modern ones.

We are very grateful to Michael Popp running the Louisville Fossil Blog who arranged this valuable contact to the Conkins.


  1. Very nice! I am glad you were able to help the Conkins publicize their decades of work with the fossilized remains of this very small creatures.
