    ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg
  2. I have a few shells like the one pictured below from Penn Dixie in New York. All I have for prep are dental picks. Is it possible to clean out the matrix to reveal more of the shell details with basic tools?
  3. Tales From the Shale

    Oglesby Roadcut

    Went to Oglesby Illinois to explore a well known site last weekend. Took me awhile to partially scrub and organize these individual specimens. Some Composita brachiopods? Can't remember for sure. My favorite find (looks better in person) someone must have tried to bash it out of the rock, as it has damage from a hammer, when I had found it in the matrix. I think its a Neospirifer, and quite large at that. Shame it has that shell damage but still great regardless. And then finally these very co

    More Paleozoic finds

    The 1st few may be the strangest rocks I have found. Appreciate any input. Thanks! Rock 5Rock 6 & 7: could these be fossilized tree roots?Rock 7 - external surface Rock 7 - close up of internal side (smooth) side Are the following specimens too weather worn to make a general ID? I know they are pebble-ish, but on some, there are potentially ribs (very worn), etc. I’m wondering about echinoids, ostracods, possible small brachiopods. Potential bivalve?
  5. I'm chipping away at what I think is brush creek limestone to find what I think is Mooreoceras (first two pics) and Metacoceras. I have no idea what the last fossil is. All help is appreciated, thank you.

    La Salle County Brachiopod Unknown

    Here is a brachiopod that I am completely lacking a guess on its identity. The specimen is from the Bond Formation, LaSalle Limestone, Pennsylvanian, found in LaSalle County, Illinois. It is tiny for the formation's other brachiopods.
  7. I found these while on a trek uphill. I’ve posted it on different sites but no one can give a positive ID on my finds. Location is Cebu, Philippines by the way. Always been curious about how the ocean life was here millions of years ago as most studies indicate that the Philippine archipelago was submerged in water. For more angles, click on that imgur link as I have labelled those there.
  8. I collected these brachiopods from the lower Kope Formation (Late Ordovician) in northern Kentucky. I am leaning towards Zygospira modesta but was hoping for a second opinion. @Misha @Tidgy's Dad Thanks for any help.
  9. Decided to take a trip to Deep Springs Road in hopes of finding a complete Dipleura dekayi fossil. I have only ever explored the Devonian shales of Erie county, so the differences in the fossils was really refreshing. I have put some of my interesting specimens below. Also I did find a few pieces of trash that I picked up. Please help keep the site clean if you visit! Thank you for the help identifying these fossils that are new to me. 1. Found within my first 20 minutes at DSR, I never sniffed Dipleura again the rest of the day! 2. A type of gonatite mayb
  10. Day Two ; Locality One (or Six if you include Day One) Black Sahara, South of Erfoud 20th February 2019 Well this is where things really get interesting, so stick with this thread as there are dozens of photos of fossils coming up. Looks at the tags if you want clues. I was up bright and early and wandered out at about 7 am to watch the sun rise over the still mighty Erg Chebbi dunes. And as night's candles were burnt out and jocund day stood tiptoe over the misty duney tops, the chaps came to join me and managed lots of photos. Here's one, if you w
  11. I've been posting identified microfossil fauna I've found at the Middle Devonian site in Paulding, OH on separate thread. However I've found a number of immature(?) brachiopods in my washings that I'd appreciate ideas of their genus / species designation. Tagging @Peat Burns and @ClearLake as they collect at Paulding. I'll post different specimens (there's a few) as I get photos taken. Here is the first photo.
  12. A few years ago, I found a fossilized something on the Beach at Cape Henlopen. It was embedded in quartz. It looked kinda like a belemnite, but the wrong material. I was told by Plax that it was much older than our cretaceous belemnites. I tucked it into a spot on the shelf and wondered about it. Since then I have seen a few posts here and there from folks in NJ finding nice little paleozoic pieces on their side of the bay as well. This summer, I made it a mission to explore the Delaware beaches and see what I could find and how far north they went. I began at the cape and worked m

    Plant fossil? Brachiopod?

    I found these hiking in Odenwald, Germany, where I found other fossils too. Pic 1-2 : no idea what this is. Help is appreciated. Pic 3-5 : is this a brachiopod? Does anyone know what kind? Pic 6: this looks a bit like some plant fossils I saw for sale so I was wondering: is this a plant fossil? Or are they random marks? They aren't coming off if I scrub them.
  14. Day One ; Locality Three. Midelt 19th February 2019 The Berber nomads are hospitable, generous and very tough : The snow disappears soon after you get onto the High Plains between the Middle and High Atlas ranges. Here are the High Atlas looming in the distance : As one approaches the town of Midelt, the layered geology of what is mostly Dogger, the old name for the Middle Jurassic, still used here, becomes clear : Midelt is full of fossil shops, however most of the fossils, including a kazillion trilobites, actually come from elsew

    Pennsylvanian Snails and Clams?

    Hello again, I found these tiny specimens today, and I'm not quite sure what they are. If I had to guess, I'd say the spiral shelled creature is Amphiscapha and the more clamish one looks a bit like Kozlowskia without the little side wings. No idea what the last one is. As always, all help is greatly appreciated. Also, sorry about the bad pics, these are quite small specimens.
  16. My collection is enriched with new pieces from the dear, old Europe. This is a Gryphaea dilatata, the so-called "devil's toenail", from Villers-sur-Mer in Normandy, France:

    Cyrtospirifer verneuilli

    From the album: My collection in progress

    Cyrtospirifer verneuilli Murchinson 1840 Location: Barvaux-sur-Ourthe, Wallonia, Belgium Age: 382 - 372 Mya (Frasnian, Upper Devonian) Measurements: 6,6x3,5 cm Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Brachiopoda Subphylum: Rhynconelliformea Class: Rhynconellata Order: Spiriferida Family: Cyrtospiriferidae
  18. Hello everyone, I am looking to get some more definitive IDs for these finds from the Lower Devonian Kalkberg Formation in NY. I have some idea for what these guys might be but I would like to see other opinions from the forum before I start labeling them. I will post more brachiopods as I take and process pictures, but here are the first few: 1. I believe these are three might be Rhipidomella
  19. Last weekend I had the opportunity to spend a few hours collecting in a quarry in northern Illinois that exposes most of the Galena Group (Late Ordovician). There was lots of fresh rock to hunt through, and it was a good and productive trip. As usual, lots of gastropod molds were found. Hormotoma sp. Liospira sp. Sinuites sp.
  20. Hi everyone! Last saturday we went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to Hotton in the Belgian Ardennes. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/667 There were 2 different locations planned for the day, the first was the "Carrière de Marenne" quarry in Hotton were we spent most of the day. It was my first time at this location, so I didn't have very high expectations but we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the finds which made for a very productive and succesfull trip! Unfortunately like so often I forgot to make pictures inside th

    3 Waldron Shale Brachiopods

    Hello everyone, I recently purchased this plate of brachiopods and bryozoa from the Waldron Shale in Indiana. I received a label with it but to me, the IDs on there do not seem right, so I wanted to ask here for your opinions. Here is the whole piece: I'll start with the ones I think I have identified. First, the brachiopod on the left in these photos: I think this is a Dictyonella reticularia due to the overall shape and the surface ornamentation which looks close to the specimens I have seen in my research. This was the only species listed in a list of fauna I foun
  22. This past weekend I had to cancel a collecting trip due to ominous weather, so I instead made an impromptu trip to northern Kentucky to do some Ordovician collecting for a couple days. I really love this area and would spend a week down there if I could. This trip I decided to focus on the Kope and Fairview formations, two of the older formations in the greater Cincinnati area. The first day was mostly driving and not much collecting due to rain. But I did briefly stop at a spot where I found a pocket of Ectenocrinus crinoids on my last trip. I checked to see if any more had weathe
  23. Following a refreshing swim at the lake with a few friends over the weekend, I decided to take a spur-of-the-moment stop at a construction site I happened to be driving by. The sun was setting, cooling the area and finally making it hospitable despite the recent heat wave. I was not familiar with the exact geology of where I was, but with only an hour and a half of daylight left I decided to not waste too much time and immediately began scouring the dirt. I quickly noticed that the ground was composed of two distinct formations. The higher layer was a grey limestone while the layer
