  1. PaleoOrdo

    Please help ID these two fossils

    I wonder what the line in this rock could be, to the right of the brachiopod. The line is less than 1 mm in diameter. Also if it is possible ID the genus or family of the braciopod? The age is Mid or Late Ordovician.
  2. Misha

    Punctospirifer kentuckensis

    From the album: Misha's Carboniferous

    A pair of Punctospirifer spiriferid brachiopods from Mineral Wells Fossil Park. Pennsylvanian Mineral Wells Fm.? Mineral Wells, TX. Thank you @Captcrunch227 for sending me these brachiopods
  3. On saturday I went on my first fossil hunting trip of 2021 with the BVP. Normally we would visit my favorite quarry "the Romontbos quarry" in Eben-Emael which is Maastrichtian in age, but due some complications that trip has been posponed till the end of September. Instead we went to the SETIM quarry in Tontelange in Belgian Luxembourg which was quite cool as it supposedly only the 2nd that this quarry allowed fossil hunting so everyone was quite excited. The rocks we hunted in this quarry are Jurassic in age, mainly Hettangian & Sinemurian. The lower levels of the quarr
  4. From the Atrasado Formation in San Diego Canyon, New Mexico. Took a couple of younger friends fossil hunting, and we found a good bed. This one's a real beauty. My photographic equipment is primitive and doesn't do it justice. Graptolites and something else. Not sure what the circular structures are; I don't have the equipment for proper microphotography. There is a very clear echinoderm plate elsewhere in the sample so I'm wondering if these are some kind of echinoderm. They're very clear under the loupe and obviously f
  5. Does anyone have experience with the Middle Ordovician brachiopod faunas of the upper Mississippi Valley? I came across this odd fragment in rocks from a quarry in south-central Wisconsin. To my knowledge they are known in North America only from the Appalachian Basin (Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Quebec, Newfoundland), not the interior basins like the Illinois basin. Has anybody else seen this critter or similar in the Platteville? As far as I am aware, the only species documented from the Platteville that looks anything like this is Megamyonia unicostata, but that h

    Trip to the Texas Permian

    I have been incredibly bad about writing this trip report, so I am glad that I have finally gotten a rainy day to put it together. Back in September, I joined the Paleontological Society of Austin on a field trip to two sites in the "Heart of Texas," one in the Pennsylvanian and one in the Permian. I had never before had the chance to collect in the Permian so I was really excited to go on this trip. @erose did a great job explaining the stratigraphy of the sites and what we should look for. Erich explained that the Permian site was an exposure of the very early Permian Moran Formation. The hi

    Vinlandostrophia amoena

    From the album: Brachiopods of Platteville/Decorah Twin Cities Minnesota

    Largest of the two Vinlandostrophia species in Minnesota Decorah formation. Resembles Dinorthis pectinella strongly. Seem to be fragile as I couldn't find any whole specimens of this uncommon brachiopod.
  8. From the album: Fossil Art

    This picture was taken as is, it was not photoshopped, everything is real in the picture. Only the contrast has been adjusted a little bit. I took this picture at a small beach where the fossils are underwater, so I literarily fish for the fossils. You can read my two articles on the subject by clicking on the following links: The day I went fishing for fossils (part I) The day I went fishing for fossils (part II)
  9. My first post was so popular that I decided to do a second. I went to the same place, and found more many rich and colorful fossils, and got enough material to write to you about it. For those who missed my first post, you will find it HERE As you will see in this article, I combine my two passions, collecting fossils and color photography. I love color, creating black and white photographs of fossils is good for scientific research, when you are a paleontologist and want to record the small details for science and posterity. But for people who are just starting to explore the wor

    November Trip to Wilson Clay Pit

    @JamieLynn's post about the recent PSoA field trip to Wilson Clay Pit reminded me that I was in need of creating my own trip report too. Early last month I made my first ever trip to Wilson Clay Pit in hopes of finding some of the incredible Late Pennsylvanian echinoderm and vertebrate material that I had read so much about. I was a little nervous about visiting (after hearing stories about rattlesnake encounters), so I was fortunate to convince a friend to join me. He must have brought the luck because not only did I find two nearly complete Petalodus teeth and a nearly complete Petalodus cro
  11. Hello! Please help me identify these brachiopod fossils from Morocco. Unfortunately, the age is unknown. Thanks in advance!

    Petrocrania halli

    From the album: Brachiopods of Platteville/Decorah Twin Cities Minnesota

    Outer view. Often encrusted by other animals.

    Petrocrania halli

    From the album: Brachiopods of Platteville/Decorah Twin Cities Minnesota

    Interior view - no hinges - irregular cup shaped.

    ?Petrocrania halli

    From the album: Brachiopods of Platteville/Decorah Twin Cities Minnesota

    Acanthocrania setigera is described as only difference in having spinosa/pillose ornamentals on the outside which is a vague definition to me and is possible invalid name. So I'm just using Petrocrania halli for now. Occurs in mifflin section of Platteville Formation and Decorah Formation. Most common inarticulated brachiopod in Decorah formation.
  15. Tetradium

    Schizocrania sp.

    From the album: Brachiopods of Platteville/Decorah Twin Cities Minnesota

    Rare Inarticulated brachiopod. Author claimed to only found one. Decorah Formation. Rounded with slightly raised edges. Unidentified bryozoan sp. can be seen on a single film covering part of the shell. Have parallel lines going from one end to another.
  16. Hi everyone! Around 2 months ago on the 16th of october 2021 I went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to the stone quarry of Lompret in Belgium. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/654 The rocks in this quarry are Devonian in age and date back to the Frasnian (382.7 million years ago to 372.2 million years ago) with the finds mostly being from both the Neuville and Matagne Formations. According to Tom our excursion leader this quarry exists out of what used to be coral reefs and islands that formed around atolls. The fossils that you can find in this quar
  17. Hi everyone, went on a nice little expedition into West VA over thanksgiving break. tried my hand on checking out the rose hill formation in Waiteville. lovely time out with some beautiful scenery and farms. The sandstone was sparse fossil wise, but I did find three pieces with some interesting stuff to ponder. here are each of the three rocks, labeled Specimens A-C Specimen A looks like it has some simple fossil impression. on first inspection there's some nice Ostracods and a couple brachiopod impressions in the middle. but on closer inspection on the edges I noticed t
  18. Hi all, went on a fossil hunting trip recently and I found some things I'm unsure of. these were found off of Route 60 in the Reedsville formation. My best guess ( assuming this isn't concretion of course) was this may be some sort of horn coral. there was another splinter of rock that looks like it could be a cluster of brachiopods but what kind I have no idea.

    Carboniferous Shells in Shale

    Hi! I was collecting plant fossils and found these shells. They are Pennsylvanian (Carboniferous), Conemaugh Group, Glenshaw Formation. I don't know what they are. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    Caballero Formation

    Don't think I've posted these before. From (as near as I can tell) the Caballero Formation, lower Mississippian. North of Lake Valley, New Mexico. My best guesses are either Cupularostrum or Eumetria. Alas, I'm sometimes lucky if I get the right phylum. Also embarrassed myself with this on this particular trip: I breathlessly identified this as a really spectacular algal mound. Well, no; I had navigated up the wrong canyon, and in this geologically complex area, I wasn't even looking at sedimentary rock. This is spectac
  23. I am going to go to some real sites in eastern New York tomorrow, but I decided to check the rocks by a pond near my grandparents house where I found a couple trilobites and other Devonian fauna this summer. And I found this really nice Platyceras specimen which it turned out had a brachiopod fossil attached near the bottom, where the opening of the shell would be located. I highly doubt that these two organisms are articulated and fossilized together but I thought it was interesting and worth showing here.
