    Within the Tamiami Formation (Southwest Florida) I find these strange-looking nodules, laces, etc.

    If they’re fossiliferous, I’m thinking they could either be bryozoans or porifers body fossils, or infaunal burrows.

    They could just be diagenetic, but I attached a bunch of photos. I do a lot of collecting from this formation so I’d love an answer.

    Enjoy, hope to hear back from everyone.

    I think these are all secondary carbonates that precipitated on or within these fossils/rocks. @amartin do you think any of these are trace fossils?

    I agree with Victor’s assessment. Chuck (@cferrara), Gail (@gail-fazzina), Paul (@paul-fazzina), and Sue (@scoller) — have you found specimens like this in southwest FL?

    I agree with Victor too. I have seen these features on fossils I have found also.
