  1. I was hiking with my dad, a little Southwest of Syracuse, and came across a rock. On one side it almost looks like rings from a tree. On another side it has crinoids and some sort of shells. I was wondering if this might be fossilized wood? Thanks!
  2. From the album: Eurypterid Fossils

    When the Eurypterid bearing strata weather and crack conchoidally, two nearly identical fossils are produced when the rock splits through the fossil itself.

    Is this a fossil?

    This is a specimen I found in Ulster County, New York. A non-expert told me it is simply a chunk of concrete and that the flat, brown anomaly in the center is a leaf that got trapped inside it before it hardened. It is specifically the "leaf" which is of interest to me as I find it to somewhat resemble an invertebrate fossil.

  10. The fossil bryozoa colony I found on April 6th turned out to be a pocket of individual colonies. I've posted about this find in the past month. Happy Collecting. Atactotoechus fruticosus Fossil Bryozoa Colony Moscow Formation, Middle Devonian (380 million years) New York State It's very difficult to find complete/near complete colonies of Devonian bryozoans that also look great in a display case. These Atactotoechus fruticosus bryozoan colonies are from a newly (4/2022) discovered pocket of around two dozen individual colonies. This Bryo
  11. 2022 Fossil Collecting Season Our season started out great with a warm 63 degree day here in New York State. We often don't dig on our first collecting trip of the season Its more of a surface collecting trip just to scout out the area and see what winter has exposed for us. I had my geology hammer of course but no mini sledge, chisels, or pry bars. One of my favorite things to find in early spring are colonies of Bryozoa (Atactotoechus frutiosus). You have to collect every little piece of the colony and reassemble them back it home. This will take anywhere from an hour to many hou

    Bottlecap-shaped Paleozoic Fossil

    Can someone please identify this fossil for me? I found it in Broome County, New York and I believe it to date from the Paleozoic era as I found it in association with bivalve fossils which means the fossil in question is likely a marine species and New York was underwater during the Paleozoic.

  15. I have located a good prospective area to fossil hunt, and it is in a state forest in New York State. To ensure that fossil hunting is allowed, I checked the website: https://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/44115.html The second rule states: "Groups of more than 20 people and certain activities such as weddings, filmmaking, research, etc., are required to get a Temporary Revocable Permit (TRP) from the DEC land manager. Please allow a few days for a TRP to be reviewed and approved after submission." Clicking on the "certain activities" link and scrolling through, I fou
  16. On Tuesday this week, myself and some of my family spontaneously decided to get out and drive to some interesting places in New York state to enjoy the day. We visited some beautiful locations like these two waterfalls: On our journey, we ended up around Gilboa, which is the location where one of the earliest known fossil forests was discovered with amazing plant and animal life, some of these fossils are exhibited outside near the town hall. This, being one of the many locations I had wanted to visit for years, was an opportunity I could not pass up, so while driving th
  17. Hello, I've been recently fascinated by large isotelus trilobites. Does anyone on here own one and would like to show and talk about it, I would if I owned one but I don't see that happening anytime soon haha. This is the largest I've seen for sale so far that would've been 8 inches, would be nice to be able to find one but I don't have that luxury.

    Deep Springs Road

    Yesterday I was finally able to take another trip to DSR, ending my nearly 5 months of fossil cabin fever. While it wasn't as ground-breaking as my last trip, where my father and I found an 8 inch Dipleura and a complete Crinoid, this trip was still really fun. We checked out some different areas than usual and it definitely paid off. Starting off with some of the oddities: A gastropod I've never seen or heard of before today, Promatis (patulis?) This is the second largest bivalve I've found at DSR I didn't notice these brachiopods

    Fossil Sites Near Kingston NY

    Hello all, I am going to be traveling to Northwestern CT to spend Thanksgiving with my family and this summer I found some Devonian era fossils near there that had been brought from upstate NY. Currently I have no commitments on Friday and my family is not using the car so I was planning to go and check out the sites along route 209 in Kingston NY and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this site and any tips about where to look and just general information about this location. Also, are the road cutouts the best place to go fossil hunting in the area or are there additional near

    Penn Dixie, NY fossil identification

    I found this fossil at the Penn Dixie site in Western NY (near the creek running through the center) . I've been all over their website, but I can't find anything that looks like this. Sorry the photo isn't larger, my microscope camera isn't set up yet. I think it has 5 part radial symmetry. The lines on the stumpy 'arms' are raised ridges that are small at the tips and get longer as they go towards the center of the beastie. The fossil is .35 Inches from the tip of one stubby leg to the approximate center. I have seen others at this site, but not often. I would rate this type of fossil i

    Bryozoan or man made?

    I've been looking at this and the pattern is very intriguing and seems too perfect to come from a masonry mold of some kind. I thought it may be a type of encrusting Bryozoan somewhat similar to some shown by Paul D. Taylora,*, Dennis P. Gordonb. Alcide d’Orbigny’s work on Recent and fossil bryozoans. C. R. Palevol 1 (2002) 533–547. (numbered photo from paper included) I failed to find any that contained a similar repeating rectangular type pattern of zooid aperture so I do not know if it is a bryozoan. Can you point me in the right direction before I spend more hours staring at what mi
  22. I have an urgent request! I found this beautiful coral today (my very first of this type!) in ice cold water. It was stable and not flaking when I picked it up. After a couple hours of drying at room temperature, it's become extremely brittle and is falling apart. I've placed it in cold, filtered water, and placed it in the refrigerator hoping to stabilize it until I can find out how to possibly treat it. Is what I've done the right thing? I have no idea what the matrix is, I suspect a type of shale, maybe limestone but can't handle it at all right now. Thank you! Sorry about the bad photos,

    Sponge or wishful thinking?

    Hi all! I found this egg shaped, non-magnetic, stone on the shoreline of Cayuga Lake in New York. It has a sandy, gritty texture and seems heavy for it's size. Being in an area where I find glacial deposits & till, identifying fossils and stones can be an adventure. Could this possibly be a very worn fossilized sponge or just another variety of interesting "holy rollers" washed up on shore. I find quite an assortment here. Please excuse the plant debris (small whitish fibers), I didn't want to scrub it too harshly.
