Found this specimen in Central Florida in a phosphate mine amongst many other fossils. By the color as seen in the picture, it is a mustard yellow/brown and solid. Can you help me identify this please? Thank you!

Central Florida Fossil
by: Doug

Briana,

Which phosphate mine were you collecting in? Central Florida has many rich fossil areas. I cannot identify your specimen but I did find a fossil on this page:

On page 45 it shows fossils common to that area the body section of the crab is very similar to your fossil.
