  1. Hello FF members: I’m going out to visit Penn Dixie and go on a field trip with PRI in a couple weeks, and I was wondering whether anyone might be willing to point me to an additional collecting site or two roughly between Syracuse and Buffalo. I’m mostly interested in brachiopods, mollusks, and microfossils, but that’s not a hard limit. Don’t want to steal anyone’s honey hole, but I remember from (many) years back that there were sometimes creek or road cuts that could afford a few hours of leisurely collecting. I’m happy to trade issues of Fossil News magazine if that’s of any in
  2. Spent a few hours earlier today fossil hunting Ordovician strata in the Jefferson National Forest near New Castle, Virginia in Craig County for the first time. Was well rewarded with several plates covered in brachiopod compression fossils. Also found what I think is some sort of burrow. Also found an odd fossil that I can’t identify, I will post it in the ID forum later with a higher resolution microscope pic and a scale, but for now I will post what I have..
  3. The weather was promising, the husband wanted a good place to hike, and the dog had cabin fever. So I loaded them, along with my gear, into the truck and drove down to Crystal Lake to hunt around in the Madison limestone while the husband and the dog went for a romp in the Big Snowy Mountains. On the dirt road to the area, we drove past a mama black bear and her cub, hanging out only about 30 feet from the road. To avoid aggravating either, we didn't slow down to take pictures, but my husband was pretty "bear"-anoid about running into them again Well, the mountains weren't s

    Crinoid? Cephalopod? Other marine life?

    Hello all, and thanks for being here! I am looking for an ID on these fossils for my own gratification! My focus is in archaeology, so I come across fossils often during surface collection adventures! A little about the location: These were found in Nancy, Kentucky, USA on a partially man made flood-control lake called Lake Cumberland (Cumberland river basin/Cumberland plateau). The banks are rich with small to medium chert concretions, fossiliferous sedimentary stones, and small to medium iron inclusions. Preservation of these specimens are, generally, fair to good.

    Anazyga recurvirosta (brachiopods) Upper Ordovician Verulam Formation James Dick Quarry Brechin, Ontario
  6. Today I took a trip to a new outcrop of the Leighton Formation! My main interest in this new outcrop is to find the source of my original material. The first outcrop I visited actually turned out to be an erratic. When I first visited there in February the ground was completely frozen. I found a large piece of shale sticking out of the ground, which I proceeded to split, but the rock itself did not come out. This rock yielded about 50 pounds of material on the first trip. When I returned in June I excavated around the supposed outcrop, and found that it was in a fact
  7. After seeing @connorp Fossil of the month entry that came from this location, I decided to stop out at this roadcut for a couple hours today. The weather was perfect, high 70’s and like almost every other trip, I had the place to myself. This cut exposes the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone Member of the Bond Formation and never disappoints, that is if you are looking for brachiopods. Unfortunately, this time I did not find and shark teeth, like I did on my last two recent trips. I did find one of my largest Echinoconchus brachiopods tha
  8. Today I stopped to stretch my back and did about 10 minutes of collecting near Whites Creek, Tennessee- I believe that this might be Richmond Group Ordovician. I would be looking for a little help on some IDs, I believe @Peat Burns, @Herb And @Tidgy's Dad might be able to help out. Here are some of my finds- Brachiopods- Gastropods- Bryozoan- I believe that the smaller pieces are Constellatia Florida. Hash Plates-
  9. Hello everyone. I have come across these in my collection and could someone gives me info at all. Possibly just the common name and maybe a rough time period.
  10. Mainefossils

    Rhynchotrema sp?

    I am unsure on the identification of this brachiopod. It is from the Leighton Formation, Maine; which is Silurian, Pridoli. According to Maine's Paleozoic Record (an excellent book that lists all the fauna and flora found in formations across Maine), there are only two Rhynchonellid genera in this formation, Camarotoechia and Rhynchotrema. It does not look like a Camarotoechia, but I cannot find many references for the internal mold of Rhynchotrema brachiopods. I would appreciate any references you have on this genus, as well as any advice on the identification of it (@Tidgy's Dad

    Brachiopod id

    This is another fossil from the Silurian Leighton Fm, Maine. It is an excellently preserved internal and external mold of a brachiopod. It is similar to the Salopina species that I am constantly finding in this formation, but this brachiopod's valve is more strongly curved, instead of almost flat. It also has less numerous striae, and they almost reach the median process. As well as this, the dental plate is thinner and curves inward more strongly, and the ctenophoridium is wider. Any help on its identification would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of it (internal mold on the le
  12. I had the opportunity to visit another Silurian site in the northern Georgia/southern Tennessee area. This is now the third such site I've visited, but the first in the Rockwood Formation as opposed to the Red Mountain Formation. As far as I can tell there's very little different between the two lithologically and paleontologically, with the Rockwood and Red Mountain occupying pretty much the same stratigraphic position. The difference seems to be that the TGS prefers to use the term "Rockwood" to describe it's Niagaran Silurian system and the GGS and AGS prefer the term "Red Mountain", mostly
  13. Hello TFF friends, I recently recieved some Ordovician Brachiopods from Ohio and would love some help with getting IDs for them, First up are two Lingulid Brachiopods from the Waynesville Formation: I have not been able to find much on the brachiopods from this formation, the brachiopods also look slightly different so I am not sure if that indicates some kind of different species or these are just differences between individuals. Both are about 1.5 cm in length Next up are two rhynchonellids, these two are preserved together and are about 2 cm in width, perhaps Lep

    I found these 5/10/21 around Elko Nevada Nevada in an area rich with coral and Brachiopods. Any help identifying theses so appreciated! Ty!
  15. Just wanted to post some pics of my finds from 2020 I have a Silurian roadcut in Davidson county, a Devonian spot in Parsons, and I hunt the roadcuts that line hwy 840 in middle Tennessee. I am Brand new to this forum, and I'm looking for new collecting spots I can trade locals! Visit my page on here to see more of my finds!
  16. I would appreciate some help identifying some of my latest finds. Since I am in Southern Indiana, I know many of my finds are silicified or geodized and I kind of know what some of them are but I want to be sure. I apologize if this post seems to be a bombardment of pictures that I am asking help identifying but I didn't want to post too many separate posts. Hopefully I've correctly uploaded pictures & if I am doing anything incorrectly please give me advise. First are what look to be turtle shells or are they just geodes moonlighting as turtle shells?

  21. Who want to help me ? I would be happy to offer brachiopods from France ,but also various nice Echinoids or carboniferous plants in exchange of new species i still not have .
  22. I had the opportunity to collect in the Red Mountain Formation recently, and considering the seeming lack of accessible sites in the area (RIP Tibb's Bridge) I thought it'd be good to show some of my finds here and say there is some stuff out there. At first I thought the site was in the Mississippian Lavender or Floyd Shales, which was my initial reason for venturing out to it as I didn't have the opportunity to collect in marine Mississippian units closer to home. I can say now with almost 100% certainty it's actually within the Red Mountain Formation, an early Silurian unit that is also a p
  23. This all started over a year ago. I was selected as Member of the Month and a couple of TFF members from Texas invited me down to the big state to collect. I primarily collect in my home region, the northeast, but I've taken fossil forays to New Mexico, Kentucky, and Germany and was willing to consider a trip to Texas and the opportunity to visit some classic fossil sites and collect fossils that are outside my usual focus. I began planning this about ten months ago, contacted potential fossil collecting partners and did my own research on fossil sites, geology, and the types of fossils I woul
  24. Hello everyone, I recently received a lot of 3 brachiopods from Spain. Here they are with their original labels that they were listed with and that I received them with: The issue is that when I began to do a bit more research on these species, specifically Hexarhytis the paper that comes up shows and describes a completely different brachiopod. Looking up the other Athyrid the results I got were much closer but still not exactly like the brachiopod I have, but since I got more results for this search I could now do a bit of looking into the closely related taxa whic
