    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

  5. Hello y’all! On Sunday, my close friend@KompsFossilsNMinerals and I met up once again to do some collecting at La Familia quarry in search of some good trilobites, and as always, we didn’t leave empty handed! We hit a few different sections of the strata, and we managed to have some level of success at every spot we worked.
  6. I found this Upper Devonian nodule containing bones years ago. Of course I don't find too many Devonian vertebrate fossils here in NY so I squirreled it away to get it properly prepared and IDed someday. After doing some recent rearranging of my collection, I decided to bring this fossil out into the light. What I know - #1. Its a vertebrate fossil for sure and it looks to me to be cranium elements. #2. The size is 5.5" x 5.5". #3. It was found in the Cashaqua shale nodule layer. I also find straight and coiled shelled cephalopods, wood, and tiny bivalves in this unit.

    Isotelus gigas

    From the album: Purchased Trilobites of Isotelus2883

    Isotelus gigas from the Walcott Rust quarry. It is nicely inflated, but not very well-preserved. I got it for next to nothing though, so no complaints.

    Fossilized coral?

    Another one I hoped to get some clarity on. Found on the beach in Staten Island, N.Y. Maybe honeycomb fossil but if anyone is familiar with this, I'd love to learn more. Thanks again!
  15. Nautiloid

    Hypodicranotus striatulus

    From the album: Nautiloid’s Trilobite Collection

    Hypodicranotus striatulus I found on February 19, 2023 while collecting at La Familia Quarry. It’s from the Middle Ordovician Trenton Group, and was found in a stratigraphic section where the species has never been documented. Unlike the vast majority of H. striatulus specimens, this one came from a thin bedded shale unit. Because of this, it is more compressed than most specimens, although the detail is still outstanding.

    Is this a bone fossil, and if so, what type?

    I have dozens of native artifacts that are tooled from this material. I'm wondering if it's fossilized bone? I just read to lick the fossil and if it sticks to your tongue, it's bone. I'm embarrassed to talk about licking rocks in my first post, but It is definitely sticking to my tongue, much more than any others I have.

    Fossil id

    I found a fossil a while ago in New York ina Devonian layer. I’m not sure what it is. Can someone help me?
  18. Took a quick road trip to a fossil locality in western New York over the weekend, a bit south of Rochester in the finger lakes region. Amongst the usual fossils I dig up at this locality I found a very well preserved gastropod that was larger than any I have seen in my time collecting. I was hoping someone could help me identify the species. Thank you! Took a field picture in case I destroyed the fossil while trying to grab it. It popped out after a long and slow excavation. After washing the detail is much more visible, including possible predatory

    Crinoid head?

    I am an amateur fossil hunter and collector, and I found this a while ago in Devonian shale, around Rochester New York. At first I thought it was some plant head like crinoid or coral but after I looked online I got stumped and couldn’t find anything like it

  22. I found this fossil in a riverbed in upstate New York. At first I thought it may be a turtle stone or some other form of concretion however when i picked it up it had features that made me think it may be a skull of some kind. It looks as if it has a neck, jaw bones and a mouth. It is really remarkable to look at. It seems to be made of chert and is roughly the size of a cantaloupe and was found along side Crinoid fossils . If anyone has any incite on what this may be it would be greatly appreciated.
  23. Over the last 10 days I have made three trips to an outcrop in NY that exposes some Silurian material. After doing some research on the stratigraphic beds that occur in this unit I decided to head out and give it a shot. As soon as I showed up on the first day I found a negative of a complete Dalmanites sp. trilobite on a large boulder that someone decided to leave behind. I did not see any more than partials and brachiopods for the rest of the first day. I had much more success on the second and third day. Plenty more not pictured such as corals, brachiopods, and trilobite partials. Spent som

    Komp’s Fossil Preps

    Hi all, my good friend @Nautiloidand I have been doing some collecting at a site in the Trenton Group recently and we have been finding what we believe to be Gravicalymene magnotuberculata. The matrix is soft and quite easy to prep, which was a nice surprise. This one was found by my father @Penguin Fiasco Here it was before preparation Bonus headless Triarthrus Beckie appears! All done, now time to clean off the abrasive powder! Here it is after preparation, I am pretty happy with the result. Please excuse the
