Finds

The fossil fauna found here is about the same as in Barvaux (Brachiopods, Spirifers). Corals and gastropods are also found. The site is not as rich in fossils though. Spirifer verneuilli, is very rare. Cyrtospirifer verneuilli is more common. The best way to collect is to stay in one place and to look in the dark brown shale layers.

Also lower devonian strata are exposed in the area.

There are 1 photographs of fossils from this location in our Fossil ID System.
