    Pennsylvanian Snails and Clams?

    Hello again, I found these tiny specimens today, and I'm not quite sure what they are. If I had to guess, I'd say the spiral shelled creature is Amphiscapha and the more clamish one looks a bit like Kozlowskia without the little side wings. No idea what the last one is. As always, all help is greatly appreciated. Also, sorry about the bad pics, these are quite small specimens.
  2. Item 1 looks like a pretty large bivalve, but maybe it's just a rock with a cavity or seed pod? Item 2 seems like a fossil to me, and seems to have the right "look" of a fossilized bone. Item 3 was found in the same spot as 1 and 2, a fallen tree next to a creek in Southeastern Mercer County. Item 4 was found farther south in NJ, near the Delaware River in Burlington County. My 10-year old is convinced it's a fossil - the blue rock is very soft, the matrix seems to be reactive to vinegar. As a beginner with a youngster who is obsessed at the moment with finding fossils, I'd love to
  3. Yesterday I finally made it out to one of my favorite hunting spots after (almost exactly) a year away. This road cut in La Salle County Illinois had been visited earlier this year (I believe) by @Nimravis, @aek and @connorp, but I really wanted a crack at it before summer fully kicked in. As I had been warned, it was already heavily overgrown, with poison ivy located intermittently across the slope. There were also mosquitoes in the shady areas and wasps in the sunny ones. However, with some delicate maneuvering I was able to avoid most of the hazards, with only some mosquito bit
  4. This last Sunday, I decided to dedicate the afternoon to scoping out a couple of prospective Woodbine sites and eventually make a return to my Pawpaw/Mainstreet spot from my most recent post. Unfortunately, the two Woodbine sites were complete duds. I left the high ninety degree weather with nothing but a tan. Thankfully, I saved the best site for last, so I was hopeful that my luck could still turn around before the sun left the sky. Things started off not being so productive. It was just rock after rock with the occasional concretion stealing away my attention. I was directing mo

    Orthonota

    Orthonota Juniata County, Pennsylvania
  6. I made a trip to a different spot on the North Sulfur River this morning. I had been to this spot one time last year, but an unforecast rain shower showed up and turned the river into such a muddy mess that I turned around and left without finding anything. With a 100 degree high forecast for today, I didn't figure rain would be a problem. I found some of the usual things you expect to find at NSR, Hamulus worm tubes, a gastropod, a perfectly preserved complete bivalve, some interesting bones, and lots of bacculites. The only bacculite I brought home was the one in this photo, with

    Douglas Point Mollusk

    Interesting shell found at Douglas Point, Maryland which should be Paleocene Aquia Formation. Didn't see an obvious match anywhere online, any ideas?
  8. Found this lovely pair of bivalves in Mimico Creek over the weekend and hoping to get some help on ID. It looks like either Colpomya or Cymatonota, based on images I've seen. Any ideas in this? Camille

    More Lincoln Creek Bivalves

    Hi everybody! I've been in the process of trying to identify the types of mollusks I found on a recent scouting trip out to the Lincoln Creek Formation. I very much don't know what I'm doing regarding identification or preserving, so any tips will help! Regarding the bivalve, I'm wondering what I can tell with the ligaments. I feel I can safely say it's a taxodont, but I don't know where to go from there. I think that this fossil shows the imprint of the inside of the shell, and I think that the outside is well ribbed, but I think that from impressions left near this foss

    help id-ing some Whitby bivalves

    Hi, I have come across a few different bivalves and my googling hasn't come up with much! I think the heavily prepped one that has no matrix might be Dacryomya Ovum? Not sure though as this is from a single image in google! Also any idea what the little babies in the back of the matrix might be? They all came from the same man who picks and preps Whitby stuff himself so pretty sure that is where they are all from. Thank you and fingers crossed! 1

    Bivalve

    Pelecypod Cypricardinia ? Grammysoidea ? Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania
  12. Brought my son out to my new secret spot in Contra Costa County, SF East Bay Area, CA (thankfully NOT within any park boundaries). The spot is a deep creek bed around a border where Eocene (Tdu/Domingene form.) and Early Cretaceous (Kbs) meet. There are lots of nice gastropod fossils in large masses of sandstone, a few brachiopods here and there, but my favorites are the many quite large bivalve fossils and whole oyster fossils we found. Today my son spotted a really nice cluster of large bivalves peaking out the wall of the creek bed, and he found another whole oyster! He was so thrilled.
