    Tiny, partial brachiopod imprint?

    Yay or nay? 13mm by 7mm stone, imprint itself is only 6mm by 3mm. Found in Doña Ana county, New Mexico.
  2. The Pennsylvanian of Texas is a strange and exciting place. Even though I've been going at this whole fossil hunting thing for about a year and a half, my experience in this age of rock is extremely limited. And yet, many of my most prized specimens have come from such hunts. I've had the pleasure of visiting a few of the more prominent Pennsylvanian sites to be had around Central Texas, but now that I'm back up North, I thought it would be prime time to check out a spot that many have put in good words about. Another local collector, @PaleoPastels, had also been dipping her toes in the Paleoz

    Great Find in my Garage!

    Happy new year! I wanted to show some of the highlights of an unexpected discovery from December 31 last year. I was in my garage when I noticed a pail full of rocks so I decided to try my luck and see what I could find. While I expected to find a crinoid stem at best, about 75% of the rocks ended up having something or another in it! 38 rocks in all ended up being relocated to my room, some have just a few brachiopods or whatever, but some I only have the slightest idea what they are, so any suggestions are much appreciated. Unfortunately I have no idea where any of these came from so there's

    Some kind of brachiopod?

  7. Shale_stack

    Leptaena rhomboidalis?

    Look for a second opinion on this fossil from the Mahantango formation of the Devonian.

    Leptaena sp?

    Is this a Leptaena sp. from the Devonian (Mahantango Fm) of Pennsylvania? Perhaps a L. rhomboidalis?

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg
  15. Day Two ; Locality One (or Six if you include Day One) Black Sahara, South of Erfoud 20th February 2019 Well this is where things really get interesting, so stick with this thread as there are dozens of photos of fossils coming up. Looks at the tags if you want clues. I was up bright and early and wandered out at about 7 am to watch the sun rise over the still mighty Erg Chebbi dunes. And as night's candles were burnt out and jocund day stood tiptoe over the misty duney tops, the chaps came to join me and managed lots of photos. Here's one, if you w
  16. Yesterday, I embarked on my second journey with the Austin Paleo Society to a famous spot: The Wilson Clay Pit. It's the site of a former clay quarry that was used for the production of bricks. Though it is in private hands, the land owners are very kind and allow fossil hunters to collect a diverse range of Pennsylvanian fossils on their property. One of prize finds from the pit is the highly-coveted Petalodus tooth. Some of y'all may remember me wishing to find one on my last trip to the Brownwood area, only to realize we weren't at the right sites to find them. Well, if there was a place to

  18. Today, I found one small piece of fossil-like thing in a sandstone rock. I found it in a valley, where there is one small river with rocks which contain many brachiopods, coral, favosites fossils. But this one is different, it is in one piece of soft sandstone rock, others are in harder rocks. Western boarder of the great basin of Sichuan, China. petal_20221129_222903.mp4
  19. There are few reasons why I would ever wake up at 5 am and begin a two and a half hour drive out to the middle of nowhere. When I saw that the PSoA was heading out to the Brownwood area, I knew it was an opportunity too good to pass up. Everything I had hunted prior might as well have been buried yesterday when compared to the mind-blowing ages of Pennsylvanian and Permian rocks. It's still crazy to think that those formations were roughly three times the age of the oldest stuff I'd seen before. When I peeled out of the parking garage to begin my drive under the stars, I didn't feel an ounce o

    No Geological Information

    Hi, I don't have any information on this specimen since I believe the rock that I found it in is foreign to the area I discovered it. Although I think the rock is from somewhere around the Western Pennsylvania/Eastern Ohio area. It is approximately 2.6 cm by 2 cm. Just hoping someone has some idea what it is. Thanks again.
  21. Tales From the Shale

    NW Alabama

    Formation: Bangor Limestone Age: Mississippian Found this location in a remote area of Alabama recently. I Haven't hunted the Bangor in awhile, so I gave it a shot. A fragmentary calyx. Northern Alabama seems to be teeming with these, as I found 8 others in a nearby locality as well. A complete, but squashed roller of a Kaskia? Fenestrella are found commonly articulated with their fans here. This was the best individual I found. My guess is these are Spyroceras? All of my nautiloids come from the Ordovicia

    Possible brachiopod or something else?

    Hey everyone, As you can see here I have a piece of shale I broke in half, which revealed this brachiopod like shape. At first I thought it was dust but what's left here can't be brushed away any more. Looks to me like it's too symmetrical to be a natural formation, but I could use some input at to whether it's a fossil or not, thanks!
