    Red hill fossil trip

    Some finds from the red hill fossil site. Please note this site is closed to the public and you need a permit from the government to collect here. The fossils are super fragile. I have a Hyneria tooth but it’s drying from being glued. Some of the rocks are green and interesting. Not sure what elements are at play. Hyneria lindae scales Megalichthys mullisoni scales A mystery fossil that came from the same Megalichthys mullisoni body as the scales and tooth

    Keyser Limestone fossil ID

    I recently started researching the Keyser Limestone Formation to try to get identify some fossils I found a few years ago. I was able to make out a few genera but there are limited resources on the Keyser/Tonoloway so I could use some assistance on this one in particular. Bryozoan is my guess. Edit: Found near Altoona, Blair County, PA - Either Pridoli-Lochkovian or strictly Lochkovian. I don't know if Machaeraria whittingtoni (a brachiopod found on the same rock) is found in a certain period of time? I found pictures of it online that were from the Lochkovian in Tennessee.
  3. Hello everyone, I just got back from collecting some fossil sites in Pennsylvania yesterday. Among these was a Catskill Fm. site, while the fishy finds there weren't particularly plentiful, I did manage to find some other interesting stuff. While there I found these rocks which have unevenly spaced lumps scattered across the surface, on the other side the position of the lumps corresponds with round impressions in the rock. I initially thought this may be something like a layer full of concretions but with the dips on the other side of the rock I was wondering if it may be som

    Pennsylvania’s Carboniferous Fauna

    I am seeking info on Pennsylvania’s Carboniferous plant fauna. The ID plates I currently have access to are ok, but lack info beyond ferns. I have been digging a coal hillside in the Llewelyn Formation, and exposed some cool pine cone and seed pod like material (attached), and I’d like to learn species name and background information. 1.Pine cone sides 2.

  5. Hello, I was digging in my garden today and found something that seems to be bone, but seemed heavier than what I would expect bone to be. My first thought was that it's a fossil, but there's a flat side that seems to have been cut by some tool, so I'm guessing that makes it really unlikely to be a fossil, but I wasn't sure. I'd love to even know if anyone knows what animal it came from, and what bone it is. It was found in eastern Pennsylvania, USA; zip code 19343. It's about 9cm long, and weighs 78 grams. One side has a bowl-shaped hole. Thanks for any help in this ID!

    Is this a fossil?

    Another "is this a fossil" question. Found in Slippery Rock Creek, in McConnell's Mill State Park, Pennsylvania. Looks to me like one of those old very old trees with the cross-hatched bark like a pineapple that I recall from my early childhood books. Am I way off? Hoping the links below work. -Steve img 1 img 2

  21. Hello! I was making some thin sections of some material from the Excello shale and found a very large and bizarre structure. Sorry in advance it was too big for my microscope camera to really capture it all, but here is the specimen in question its most likely coated in apatite/phosphate? along with small radiolarian/sponge spicules surrounding it I sent a photo to my professor and he said it could be something new but he would have to see it in person (he is an expert in Radiolarian microfossils) I wanted to post it here and see i

    Eastern PA tetrapods

    I’ve been reading up about fossils in the Eastern PA region and came across a few papers about vertebrate fossils. Are any of these sites still accessible ?
  25. I found some pyritized plants a few days ago and noticed that one looks like a stem with seed pods. The fossil measures 2 cm and is from the Glenshaw Formation of Beaver County Pennsylvania. I'm nearly certain that what looks like a stem is a stem, but what are the three round things seemingly attached? Help is appreciated, thanks.
