    First visit to Penn-Dixie

    After stopping at the Aurora Fossil Festival Saturday morning and attending a friends retirement festivities in Winston-Salem NC that evening, on Sunday I was up and on the road by 7 in an attempt to make it to Penn-Dixie near Buffalo NY before they closed at 5 so I could meet up with Devoniandigger (Jay). The GPS said it would be a 9 1/2 hr drive so it would be close, and as it happens construction on I-77 and elsewhere extended the drive so I arrived at 7 PM, too late to meet anybody. Fortunately Jay had helped me get a membership, so I felt comfortable walking around and getting the lay o

    Ambocoelia umbonata (Conrad 1842)

    Found as surface float near the top of the Windom exposure, a few feet below the Genundewa Limestone at Penn-Dixie Quarry in Hamburg, NY. A very common fossil in Hamilton Group sediments. Similar to Emanuella praeumbona, distinguished from E. praeumbona by the hinge width; the hinge of A. umbonata spans the width of the valve, while that of E. praeumbona is narrower. A. umbonata has a nearly flat brachial valve, while that of E. praeumbona shows a convex profile. Full-sized specimens of A. umbonata are also not as large as E. praeumbona. Originally designated Orthis um

    Emanuella praeumbona (Hall 1857)

    Found as surface float near the top of the Windom exposure, a few feet below the Genundewa Limestone at Penn-Dixie Quarry in Hamburg, NY. Distinguished from Ambocoelia umbonata by the hinge width; the hinge of A. umbonata spans the width of the valve, while that of E. praeumbona is narrower. E. praeumbona also shows a convex profile to the brachial valve, and grew to a larger size. E. praeumbona is common in the Hamilton Group only within the upper layers of the Windom Member. Originally designated Orthis praeumbona, later assigned to Ambocoelia, then reassigned to Ema
  4. From Indiana Jones... Grail shaped coral from Penn-Dixie King Arthur: Go and tell your master that we have been charged by God with a sacred quest. If he will give us food and shelter for the night, he can join us in our quest for the Holy Grail. French Soldier: Well, I'll ask him, but I don't think he will be very keen. Uh, he's already got one, you see. King Arthur: What? Sir Galahad: He said they've already got one! King Arthur: Are you sure he's got one? French Soldier: Oh yes, it's very nice!
  5. I've been working through some material that my daughters and I collected on Sunday May 28, Digging with the Experts Day. While I feel like I'm pretty new to fossil collecting, this Mucospirifer seems particularly pretty and well preserved, so I thought I'd share(my pinky nail is 1 cm for scale): The original matrix surrounding the specimen is seen above. I assume there is some pyritization creating the gold color.

    #01b Scolecodont

    From the album: Scolecodonts

    #01a Scolecodont

    From the album: Scolecodonts

    This is the first scolecodont I ever found. When i first saw it under the microscope, I thought a passing beetle had dropped a piece of chelicera in my matrix! Only when I saw a second piece, still embedded in a limestone chip, was I certain that I had a fossil. I was correct about this being a chitinous jaw element. I was extremely incorrect about the age, phylum, and preferred living environment of the original owner! Size: Approx. 1 mm Upper Devonian North Evans Limestone Genesee Fm. Penn-Dixie Quarry Hamburg, NY

    Box #01

    From the album: Scolecodonts

    This is the 1st box in my display case, containing 3 scolecodonts. All of these specimens are around 1 mm long. Upper Devonian North Evans Limestone Genesee Fm. Penn-Dixie Quarry Hamburg, NY

    My First Conodont!

    Back in early September, my husband and I went back to Penn-Dixie for another day of fossiling. I was particularly interested in collecting some North Evans limestone to search for microfossils, especially conodonts. Well, I'm not entirely sure that what I collected was North Evans (it might be Genundewa), but I've been slowly dissolving small pieces in vinegar ever since. I've seen lots of tiny weird things, probably foraminifera, with some possible echinoid spines for good measure. Tonight, I found what looks like a conodont to my admittedly inexperienced eye. Here are my 2 best photos (

    Pathological Conodont?!

    I have a few dozen conodonts that I'm in the process of photographing and mounting for storage. Among my collection, I have several Polygnathus linguiformis examples. Last night, I mounted two P. linguiformis on my "Conodonts II" storage card. This one caught my attention: That pale growth on the underside struck me as odd, especially compared to the other P. linguiformis that I handled last night: So I went to look at the P. linguiformis that I'd previously mounted. Here are 3 of the 4 for comparison: I also looked at the page in "Conodonts from the Genesee Formation in Wes

    Mystery From The Windom Shale

    Here's a piece from my Windom Shale (Middle Devonian) that I'd really like to identify. Anyone recognize it? I can think of two possibilities, and I'm not sure where to look to be sure. 1) Fish coprolite 2) Worm #1 seems more likely, somehow... I think this was preserved inside one of the tubular pyrite nodules that are common in this shale. Whatever it is, it's interesting! It's about 1 mm long.
  12. I've been experimenting with breaking down some Windom Shale from Penn-Dixie, and I think I have some ostracods: I have a few other interesting bits, too. Are these echinoid spines, micro-belemnite bits, or something else? And then there's this object: That's a small sampling. I also have found lots of brachiopod pieces, which is not surprising. The shale is rich in macrofossils, especially brachiopods, trilobites, horn corals, and occasional straight cephalopods.

    What Is This Trilobite?

    Found this trilobite on a small slate piece found at penn-dixie. I found a couple of greenops and phachops but the side spines look wrong for a greenops. Its very small this pic is from my digital microscope.
  14. Got home and began inspecting the trilobites found at Penn-Dixie this past weekend. Found this head scratcher on the side of a slab my wife collected. Any ideas on ID?
