Lower Silurian To Lower Devonian Vaughn Gulch Limestone

Mazourka Canyon, Inyo County, California

A prospector of Paleozoic paleontology hikes toward richly fossiliferous outcrops of the lower Silurian to lower Devonian Vaughn Gulch Limestone situated near Mazourka Canyon, Inyo County, California. Here can be collected numerous species of excellently preserved, silicified (replaced by the mineral silicon dioxide) corals, crinoid stems, brachiopods, bryozoans, and a remarkable extinct species of dasycladacean algae (green algae) called Verticillopora annulata.
