  1. Madison County, NY ID Help

    Several years ago I took a trip to Madison County to collect at the various Middle Devonian locales: Deep Springs Road, Cole Hill Road, Briggs Road. I am working back now through what I found and was hoping to get some help with an identification or confirming an identification. Thank you so much! #1 - Spinocyrtia granulosa? #2 - Spinocyrtia granulosa? #3- Crinoid pieces? #4- ??? #5- Modiomorpha concentrica? #6- ??? #7- Grammysioidea arcuata? #8- Actinodesma erectum? #9- Actinodesma erectum? #10- Actinodesma erectum? #11- Actinodesma erectum? #12- Actinodesma erectum? #13- Actinodesma erectum? #14- Actinodesma erectum?
  2. ID rock inclusions

    Found this rock (upstate NY, Tompkins county). Main rock seems to be shale, but what are the black inclusions in it? The rock on the last picture is different. Is that print from an organism, or just a rock structure? Thanks!
  3. Help ID - NY, Devonian, bones?

    Hi! Found today a rock containing what seems to me fossilized objects. Location: creek near Ithaca, Tompkins county, USA (Devonian period?) Size of the objects: 5-10 cm (didn’t have a ruler with me for more precise measurement) thank you! Wood or bones? can this be fish remains?
  4. Help ID - shell imprints, NY

    Hi! I found some rocks with shell imprints in a creek in Tompkins county, NY, USA. I understand that the fossils found there are usually from Devonian period. My guess is that it is a brachiopod. If yes, is there a way to out more precisely what kind, and to narrow its age? I have a very sketchy knowledge about the subject so any help is appreciated. Thanks! 1.
  5. Today on a hunt in the lower devonian of new york, I found on of the most unusual piece and I can't decide if its bryzoan or possible placoderm.
  6. Today on a hunt I found on of the most unusual trilobite pygidiums I've ever seen from new york and cannot find anything out there to compare it to. Unfortunately the site is imported material from an unknown quarry upstate so all I do know is that its from the Devonian of New York based on other material found there, unfortunately I cannot attach a formation to this one. Also its also fragile and a very partial piece thats unpreped, I think its a ventral display. This maybe a head scratcher so maybe the trilobite experts here can help weigh in on what this can possibly be.
  7. Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else to compare this to. Any thoughts on this piece will be greatly appreciated as I've never come across anything like it at the site.
  8. Found this in a creek bed. Looks like sandstone. Not sure what it could be. Any help would be appreciated. In Western NY. Chautauqua county.
  9. Plant? Sea bed?

    I purchased this fossil about 15 years ago because of the low cost. But the low cost came with a complete lack of information, except "found in either NY or VT in the late 60s to early 70s". I originally bought it for the sea floor side but when I received it I was intrigued with the reverse side. So...….. I removed some matrix and found what looks like a plant. Is this a plant? Can it be identified? Is it a portion of sea bed?Puzzled.....
  10. prep on crinoids

    I'm going to try to get 2 photos in--not good at that! I do appreciate all the helpful responses;and yes, I do know that crinoids are not plants--I thought the flared top was called a "crinoid bloom". If it isn't, then what is the proper name ? Thanks! Barb ATT00001.txt
  11. Last summer, I took a trip to North and South Lake campgrounds for a casual camping trip. While there, I snooped around my camp site and found these nodules filled with shells. What I was wondering was if these fossils actually came from the site I was at or if the rocks were imported to outline the camping grounds. North and South Lake campgrounds is here: The fossils look like this: Thank you for your time.
  12. Deep Springs Road (first trip)

    I made my first trip out to DSR today and, with some helpful tips from some kind people on the forum, I was able to find the site and know what to look for. Its a nice little spot. Near the road, easy to get to, and quiet. I didn't find anything exceptional, but I thought I would post pics of my favorites for anyone looking up the spot. Thank you to the owners of the site for let everyone come and enjoy it.
  13. I've been tardy on making a report on a three-day dig at Penn Dixie with @Malcolmt. We had a real hoot. It all began when Malcolm picked me up from the train station and we sailed through the border as we were lucky to have a Homeland Sec official who recognized Malcolm from the May Dig with the Experts. A border guard who collects fossils? Awesome! We definitely put in our efforts. We joined up with @JamesAndTheFossilPeach and @DevonianDigger to start slabbing out rocks. I can say that our area was not the best as the matrix was brutally hard and not yet subjected to any weathering, which meant slabs would shatter more than split. That aside, it is amazing they still let us crazy canucks in as we carted out about two buckets each of trilobites. Malcolm found a lovely Bellacartwrightia, and I found a double Greenops. We loaded up on the usual complete Eldredgeops rana, prone, enrolled, and semi-prone.
  14. Hi! I'm planning a trip to Briggs road earlville soon. As a result, I would really appreciate advice on where and how to dig at the site. Am I allowed to take off slabs of material or do I have to go through the material on the ground? If so, is there a specific spot I should dig? Thank you for your time.
  15. fossil from upstate ny

    a friend of mine found this fossil in upstate ny. my best guess is that it’s some sort of coral, but i’d love to hear other opinions! it’s about 10 inches by 7 inches by 6 inches. thanks in advance!!
  16. Penn Dixie this weekend

    This weekend we're taking a long weekend up to the Niagara Falls NY area. We're going to be doing the typical tourist stops plus a visit to Penn Dixie. . Based on the weather forecast I would assume to be there at opening time to avoid the afternoon heat and possibility of thunderstorms. I don't know yet if we're going to be there on Saturday or Sunday. Is there any tips or suggestions for first timers to Penn Dixie? We have a rock hammer, mason's hammer, an engineer hammer and several cold chisels. Also on a totally unrelated note any restaurants in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area that anyone would recommend for the family. Thanks for any information and I will post a field report early next week.
  17. Hi all! I'm a hobby hunter who normally visits Penn Dixie near Buffalo NY for my fossils where they tell me what everything is if I can't ID it myself. But my mom went for a hike recently in our creek (Groveland, Livingston County, NY, USA) and came back with these three fossils. At least, we're pretty sure they're fossils! I'm sorry that the measurements are in inches, my mom doesn't have anything with metric measurements on it. Each square is 1inch (~2.5cm) I tried to give her the best instructions to take pictures like the pinned post, and this is what I got lol. I'm going to attach them each to separate messages so they don't get all jumbled. Here's the first one:
  18. My wife and I made our 2nd trip up to Deep Springs Rd on Saturday. Nothing spectacular but figured I would share our finds. Also posted a couple items in the identification forum. Grids are quarter inch. Starting with a mortality plate. I like this one because its a nice flat plate and easy display piece with several different shell types represented:
  19. Couple unknowns from DSR

    Got up to DSR for the 2nd time yesterday. Didn't have anything spectacular but will post some finds over in the trip forum. (Deep Springs Rd, Devonian, NY) Had 2 items I can't identify. First up is a 3/4 inch long piece: Second is a rather undefined semi-oval blob. I have both dry and wet views:
  20. Helderberg Marine Fossil ID

    I collected today in an exposure of the Helderberg Group in NY. The Helderberg Group is Lower Devonian, and rich in marine fossils. We found this in the mine and could not come up with any kind of ID. It is possibly part of a horned coral? Or a brachiopod? Please let me know your thoughts. I can also provide more photos if necessary, I tried to capture the different angles. It is an interesting thing.
  21. Alien footprint lol??

    What is that impression? Coral?
  22. Possible crinoid?

    This was another interesting thing I found as a kid in my backyard. There are a few of these on the rock. And theyre definitely not bolts. It is not threading. They are layered rings.
  23. Need help identifying.

    I have multiple finds just like this one. Walking on stone walls as a kid I would see these often. But never as heavily concentrated as this one. I have no idea about this other than my area is known for devonian period fossils. I've ordered a rock pick and hammer online so I can start cracking more rocks open
  24. future trip to port jervis NY

    I'm looking to get a group hunt. I have family in the address but never hunted it before. Anyone want to go?
  25. Good morning! I have been puzzling over this piece of what I believe to be a type of rugose coral, a little over an inch across at its widest, 1.5 inches tall but a fragment of a whole. The closest thing I could find might be ketophyllum perhaps? It was found on the western edge of the Otisco Valley in central/western NY state, between Skaneateles and Otisco lakes. The layers if the area I am know of are is Ordovician/Silurian/Devonian, i am not certain as to its original bedding plane location as it was a post thunderstorm erosion find, all sorts of fresh material came down the gorge, but i think it came from above the “famous” layer of Staghorn coral that emerges on the east side of Skaneateles lake. It popped right out of the shale I split and is almost graphite in appearance, the "stump" nodes that look like broken off appendages and the vertical pattern (vs the typical horizontal growth bands in the common staghorn corals) make it very different from anything I have found in the area, it almost looks soft-bodied, realizing how unlikely that is. I love the detail in this piece, it looks like there may be preserved damage/healing that occurred in life but I may be reading too much into that thought. Additional angles attached, just quick ipad shots but they may be helpful. No visible septa on either end, nothing radial or even patterned, although it looks like there may have been an internal, central structure. Thank you! It may have come down from the Devonian Otisco Member of the Ludlowville Formations (Upper Hamilton Group)?
