    Madison County meetup

    Hello all! Today I met up with my good friends @Dean Ruocco and @KompsFossilsNMinerals to collect a couple of Hamilton Group sites in Central NY. The first site we went to was the famous Deep Springs Road site, and then we hit a second location for a little while afterwards. All around it was a good day of collecting, with everyone having success in the trilobite department.

    Madison County Trip W/ Forum Friends

    Hi all, yesterday I met up with @Nautiloid and @Dean Ruocco in Madison County to collect some bugs at DSR and another site nearby. After exchanging some gifts we got to work collecting, you can see some of @Nautiloid’s finds on his post here… Dean and I got to work creating benches in a promising area whilst @Nautiloid checked out an area at the site I had mentioned to him prior to the trip. Straight off the bat we were all finding some decent bugs, here were the only Greenops I found yesterday. I always like

  5. Well took a trip about a week ago ran in to another member of TFF we both did well. I’m holding up on prepping until I get some new bits in. However here is a preview of what I collected think I even scored a whole one time will tell.
  6. I recently stumbled upon this informative gem of an html article discussing modern trilobite lookalikes. Being a trilobite-cephalon myself, I found it fascinating, so I wanted to share it with you all! The article: Trilobite imposters

    Field Collection at St. Leon

    On my eighth trip to the locality, I collected fossils at the famous St. Leon roadcut. Exposed were the Waynesville and Liberty formations, which date to the immense coral reefs of the upper Ordovician, or 450 ±5 MYA. The site was heavily picked, its erosive forces slowed during Indiana's summer heat. My drops of sweat evaporated on the sun-tempered limestone faster than I could count to ten. Despite the setbacks, acquisitions were generous. Best for last. Behold my brachiopods. The top row is Strophomena sp., the top-left sample demonstrating encrusting bryozoan. The second row is

    Fossil Preparation Services?

    Has anyone on here had a good experience with fossil preparation services? I’m not asking for specific companies (as I know this might be a breach of TFF community rules), just wanting to know if anyone has had good results with fossil prep companies in general. I’ve got a couple of nice-ish Devonian trilobite partials in need of prep and am too impatient to prep them myself. Also full air scribe setups are extremely expensive, this isn’t even taking into account that there are no spare rooms in my house for a fossil prep workshop. Meaning, I would either have to build onto the house or build

    Trilobite and shell indentification help NY

    Just started searching for fossils since moving to central New York. These are some finds from Madison County. I was hoping for some help, I know they are trilobites, but not the species. There were also some shells I was curious about. Thanks.
  11. FINALLY getting around to posting about my first time ever fossil hunting in Oklahoma! Went on an extended weekend with the Paleontological Society of Austin to a variety of locales in Central OK - places I have heard about, read about and dreamed about going! I finally made it! And it was so very worth the drive, even if I did end up with a stupid cold the last two days (the drive home was a little....weird. Cold "fugue" makes for interesting driving- I really don't remember much of it, which is either good or bad....) But the FOSSILS! I've never hunted the Ordovician and Siluria

    Nowadaga Triarthrus

    Found these in mid June 2022 in broken up shale on the bank of Nowadaga Creek in east-central New York. The cephalon head was found 1 foot away from that body. To make the image “pop”, I doused a rag with a few drops of mineral oil and gently rubbed it on the shale. Unsure what the actual trilobite species is. Triarthrus eatoni, beckii, other?

Day Two ; Locality Two (or Seven if you include Day One) Prepping and Retail, Erfoud, Morocco. 20th February 2019 Erfoud town itself is famous for its beautiful fossils, its skilled fossil preppers and also for its wide variety of fakes, composites, good and bad repair jobs and utter frankenfossils. A large percentage of fossils from Morocco that are available in shops and on the internet the world over originate from here or pass through the place. Fossils are sent here for prepping from all over the south and then sent from here everywhere in the country and abro

  15. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day
  16. Hardly anybody ever talks about the Cambrian fossils of the southern midcontinent (USA). They're super-underappreciated. Show us what you've got! Here's one to start us off: Thorax and pygidium of a trilobite, possibly Orygmaspis, typically referred to as "Orygmaspis cf. Orygmaspis llanoensis" but probably a different species altogether. Note the two pairs of macropleural spines marking the final thoracic segments. Davis Formation (late Cambrian: Furongian), south side of Highway 8, St. François County, Missouri.

    Hoppin Hill MA

    Hello, i’ve just recently found out about the possible trilobites that can be found near Hoppin Hill Massachusetts, does anybody have any information on where exactly these are and if they are available to the public?
  18. I was wondering if anyone had a good list on different species found in the Conasauga Formation? I've found a few references to trilobites, but I was especially curious about non-trilobite species such as brachiopods, sponges, non-trilobite arhtropods, etc.
  19. My grandson sent me photos of his little haul from today on his beach He is nearly 8 and loves checking his local beach. He has compared what he found with photos in his kid’s books of fossils. He’s wondered if these are trilobites and crinoids all- the last 2 photos are the same find. He has been asked to show some of his fossils in a special exhibition in the Laing Art gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne called “These are Our Treasures “ which will coincide with the display of the Lindisfarne Gospels. He feels quite excited by this!
  20. I was able to take another trip to the Leighton Formation today! It's been a while since I've been able to visit (months and months), but I've finally been able to. Unfortunately, during the winter the place is completely covered in snow and ice. Not really the best collecting conditions... My last trip there was in August of last year, and the spring has been very busy. Today it was time. It was supposed to be overcast with a chance of rain, but it came out sunny and bright. Absolutely beautiful day out. The collecting was very g
  21. Hello! I saw this Dicaranarus monstrosus fossil online, I want to know if it's authentic or not. Thank you for any help!
  22. Hello all! I'm looking to do some more fossil hunting this summer and I would love to find a good spot for trilobites. I am in western Maryland, and am willing to travel up to 2 hours. Most of the sites I've searched so far have been largely dominated by brachiopods and crinoids (which are still cool), but I really would love to find other species. If anyone has a good site which has trilobites (or anything else super cool) please let me know!! Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! PS: I understand wanting to keep your spot secret, so if you don't want to

    Out & About

    I've been out quite a bit this season, but still haven't had my "wow" trip-maker yet. Due to various situations, most of my digging has been very local, with one away trip to Quebec. For local sites, I've been prospecting new spots and doing due diligence on old ones, too. Around me is Devonian, and more particularly the ugly portions of the Devonian of Ontario that are parsimonious, tough, sometimes lacking in bedding planes, occasionally blank or cherty, and generally displaying fossils as they might appear after being thoroughly whipped in a Ninja blender. But, hey, it's always
