    A looks like a coral, possibly one of those Petosky Stones. :wink:

    The others, I just can't tell...:oops:

    A - coral or bryozoan?
    C - fossilized/petrified wood?

    no guesses on the others...

    A is a tabulate coral, possibly Favosites.

    B should be Dendrostroma, an idiostromatid stromatoporoid

    C is a horn coral with the outer wall missing

    D, E, and F are calcareous algae stromatolites.

    you gotta love how forest soil reworks fossils. some of my most interesting fossils come from the woods.
