    Adam's Early / Lower Devonian

    The Devonian period is known as "The Age of Fish", but could also be known as "The Age of Brachiopods." In the Early / Lower Devonian, brachiopods reached the height of their diversity towards its end in the Emsian. We see the ancestral groups occurring, lingulids, craniids, orthids, protorthids, pentamerids, rhynchonellids and strophomenids, as well as the later successful groups we have seen before such as atrypids, athyrids and orthotetids, plus the rise of spiriferids, spiriferinids and productids and the beginning of the terebratulids. By the end of the Devonian , several of these g

    Cephalopod or not?

    I’ve had this forever, I think I found it in Middle TN. I initially thought it was a cephalopod, but I know more now, and I don’t see any septum(s). What say ye? Thanks!

    Iowa Devonian Trip

    A couple months ago I took a trip to collect in the Middle Devonian of Iowa. It was a pretty good trip. I found some nice stuff and chatted with some very nice folks. Here are a couple of my finds. A partial ptyctodont tooth plate A neat sponge. I believe the genus is Astraeospongia but please correct me if I'm wrong. I was told these are rare from this area. A partial nautiloid And a partial Eldredgeops norwoodensis

    Unknown fossils from the Coburn Formation

    Recently I went fossil hunting along a road cut revealing some of the Coburn Formation, latest Ordovician. I was stunned to find that so much of the ecosystem was made up of only Trilobites and Cephalopods. I found trilobites such as Isotelus and Cryptolithus (First picture). My find of the day was a large, very heavy plate of rock that preserves different parts of large Isotelus gigas from multiple individuals, and the circular cross-section of a small cephalopod (Second picture). However, I'm having trouble identifying these cephalopods. In the very few that preserve the outer sell, faint s
  5. I had brought home a piece of Galena/ Ordovician matrix that had some unidentifiable critters hidden in the rock. Time was taken to extract what I am sure is a cephalopod from the matrix. Haven hunted this formation for years, I can honestly say this is the first cephalopod found exhibiting its curved features discovered by me. Attempts to ID the fossil have been fruitless, so I am asking for help! The fossil fractured during its prep revealing what I see as a siphuncle. Here is the repaired specimen:

    Cephalopod Shell Color!

    Hello all! Recently I have been obsessed with cephalopods and realized there is a real lack of reconstructions of the color patterns on extinct nautiloids and ammonites! This led me to compile a list of known fossil color patterns on cephalopods. After a year of on and off research, I found about 90 species of cephalopods retaining official or undescribed, original patterning on their shells. These are the first 15 species on my list. The color markings are based both on descriptions and photographs of the fossil material. The shades of the markings are based on the fossils, bu

    Graf Iowa Score

    State: Iowa Location: Graf Period: Ordovician Cruised over to Iowa for the first time in years last weekend. I went to observe and scout the famous cephalopod beds in Graf. I have to say, it was everything I had hoped it would be. The wall in which the RC was located upon, was a few hundred meters in length, and contained a few layers, dominated by dolostone, limestone and towards the bottom, phosphatic shales. I ended up finding graptolites too, which I wanted to say were Orthograptus? However I didn't bother to keep any. These were most of my finds, minus the plate
  8. Last weekend I had the opportunity to collect in a quarry in southern Wisconsin. It appeared to cut through the Upper Ordovician Platteville, Decorah, and Galena Formations, although only the Platteville rocks were accessible. It was not the most productive trip but it was a new spot for me and I had a good time. Here's a site shot plus a couple photos of large hash plates I did not collect. The quarry was swarming with these baby frogs – I easily saw several hundred. Here are the finds I kept. Eoleperditia fabulites - gia

    Middle Devonian cephalopod prep.

    Last weekend we made a fieldtrip with the “CGH” ( Cercle geologique du Hainaut ) to the quarry “La Couvinoise” , the quarry happens to be in Couvin :p Here the deposits are middle Devonian: Eifelian and Givetian, so a bit older than the locations we usually prospect. The best part for the fossils are the Eifelian deposits, but sadly those layers are no longer in exploitation. However, due to the drought and the low water level we had access to a small but promising scree pile. Here we found a fragmented nautiloid, but the centre of the specimen seemed to be still in the matrix.

    Cephalopod?

    Hello, I’m not very good at this but I was looking for frogs with the kids and found this. I think it is a cephalopod. I found it near Lion’s Head, Ontario, Canada. It is 14-15” in length. Please let me know if this is what it is and approximate age range. Thanks, Matt

    Gastropod and cephalopod?

    Found on a railroad track with other Paleozoic fossils
  12. I recently went to the famous St. Leon roadcut for the third time. The previous two times were more exploratory with few good finds to speak of, especially in regards to trilobites. I had a much more fruitful time this trip, including 2 complete rollers and 2 and a half prone flexis (my sister found a gorgeous one). I also came across this plate, where I saw the fossil in the bottom middle that is the subject of this post. At first I thought it was part of a coiled cephalopod, which I hadn't found at this site before. The other fossil, that I'm fairly certain to be a ce

    Cephalopod ?

    I found these Ordovician fossils in the Nicolet River formation, could it be cephalopod related?
  14. I just made new ID posters for Hamilton Group Cephaloods - one for Nautiloids and Bactritoids, and one for ammonoids. The reconstructions are either new or updated for accuracy. Color patterns on the first picture are based on close relatives. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know - I want these to be as useful as possible.
  15. Yesterday I finally made it out to one of my favorite hunting spots after (almost exactly) a year away. This road cut in La Salle County Illinois had been visited earlier this year (I believe) by @Nimravis, @aek and @connorp, but I really wanted a crack at it before summer fully kicked in. As I had been warned, it was already heavily overgrown, with poison ivy located intermittently across the slope. There were also mosquitoes in the shady areas and wasps in the sunny ones. However, with some delicate maneuvering I was able to avoid most of the hazards, with only some mosquito bit

    A tiny orthoconic cephalopod from New York

    Hi everyone! I just got back from a trip to Penn Dixie Fossil Park near Buffalo, New York, and found some pyritized cephalopod fossils. Penn Dixie has rocks form the Givetian of the Devonian from the Hamilton Group. A young ammonoid is easily identified as Tornoceras uniangulare, but the other orthoconic fossils are harder to ID. I am pretty sure the small but more complete one is a Bactrites, because the siphuncle appears to be almost ventral, the distance between the septa, and the slightly slanted suture (after looking at Ludwigia's). The preserved shell is very smooth and couldn't be from
  17. I think it looks shockingly similar to charnia. Maybe a cephalopod, snail, or plant? What could it be?
  18. One of my friends has a Whitfieldoceras specimen from the Ordovician of Wisconsin. He asked me if I knew anything more about it. I didn't and didn't see much online. Does it have a record outside the Ordovician? Is it found elsewhere in the U.S./the world? I have the same question about Beloitoceras. He has one of those from the same site. I think I have one from a Minnesota site somewhere but couldn't find it. Is it known from elsewhere and did it survive beyond the Ordovician? Thanks, Jess

    Pseudocenoceras

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    In southern munsterland basin it is sometimes possible to dig in cenomanian sediments. Fossils are rare, but sometimes real beauties like this fine, 4 cm "big" Nautiloide Pseudocenoceras
  20. Hi guys, I bought this ammonite at antique store, It measures 25 CM. Could anyone help me ID the fossil? Baja California, México. It could be pachydiscus? Thank you! Best regards!

    Went on a little "Easter Egg Hunt" with my folks, found some excellent fossils. day was hot but I enjoyed it. I have provided my best ID, but please feel free to correct if you can identify it further! it helps with my labeling system for sure. this lizard was good luck right next to where my mom was standing i noticed this beauty sticking out of the rock further excavation revealed this possible horn coral? eldredgeops rana heads trilobite glabellar fold ( possibly Odontocephalus?)

    Upper Ordovician cephalopod

    From the album: Camille's fossils - Georgian Bay Formation

    Field collection by Camille Martin, April 4, 2022 The fossil offers a bit of an interior view of the cephalopod.

  23. Hello, would appreciate help with a fossil ID. Location found - Fergus Falls, MN. All rock pieces are from one larger piece that I broke apart. I removed some matrix with a Dremel tool to reveal more detail, but the "body" of these creatures were left untouched and are smooth in texture. The first six images of larger specimen has unique features on both sides. The smaller additional specimen along with the separate unfinished rocks seem to be the same creature, just more of them.

    Micro Bacculite?

    This is from Duck Creek formation in Tarrant county, not familiar with fossils from there so not sure what this is, looks very similar to a bacculite to me except for ridge running the length of it. Half cm long.
