  16. Hello and Happy New Year to all of my Fossil Friends! Yesterday and today I put in my first 2 hunts of the year. The weather here has been mild and I almost went fishing instead. But the fossil gods were calling to me and I couldn't resist their siren song. I decided to visit a site that I haven't been to for awhile. I am sorry but a have made a New Years resolution to no longer name locations for the world to see. This is a site that I have gone a few times with minimal results. Mainly it is a rather large site and the rock is hard to work. But I knew the potential for nice finds were there.
  17. I recently have been reanalyzing some fossils I found with @Tales From the Shale and another friend on October 8th, 2022 at a Pennsylvanian era roadcut in Oglesby Illinois! One of the specimens I had previously put under a dissecting scope, but was still unsure about its exact ID. I recently took a look at the specimen again a couple days ago and I believe its a partial tooth of a large ctenacanthiform shark. Here is the specimen under a dissecting scope! After a closer look, I noticed the parts of the tooth that could have connect
  18. Hello again everyone, I received an old collection from a married couple who weren't interested in it anymore. Some of the items were purchased in 1905! They got them from the man's father who was Dutch. Unfortunately, many of the fossils did not come with their labels, and the labels I do have are written in Dutch, and in cursive... I would be grateful for any useful information you can provide (id's, locations, ages, etc.). If the photos aren't clear enough just tell me the number so that I can send a better image. 1.Lots of these brachiopods

  20. Hi all, It has been a while and I haven't been particularly active on the forum lately as I've been quite busy, recently though I had some time available and due to fairly nice weather decided I'd go check out a new fossil site in eastern NY, which is probably the closest Paleozoic site to me. I was initially made aware of this site by @Fossildude19 who gifted me some fossils from here this summer and the unusual preservation as well as interesting fauna made me very interested. Big thank you to Tim for those wonderful pieces as well as informing me about the location. The locat
  21. Hi Everyone, Last month I took a trip from New York to Elizabethtown, Kentucky to attend my parents' 70th anniversary. My sister and her husband, two of her adult children, and my parents, both in their 90s have all resettled there. I try to visit them at least once per year, but my parents' 70th wedding anniversary could not be missed. It is a very long trip from the suburbs of New York City to E-Town and a stop along the way was the sensible thing to do, so I spent the night in Harrison, Ohio near the border with Indiana and only 15 minutes from St. Leon, the well known Ordovician roadc
  22. I apologize in advance for the photo quality, and the fact that I did not have a ruler with me when I took the pics. I see these things EVERYWHERE. The ones pictured here are large (6-8”, 15-20cm), in limestone slabs. But I see them in smaller sizes, in rocks that I pick up. The rocks often have recognizable fossils in them, too: cephalopods, brachiopods, crinoids, bryozoans. I am thinking maybe these are internal structures, perhaps of brachiopods? I’m starting to think I am crazy…
  23. Hello everyone, I recently received a lot of 3 brachiopods from Spain. Here they are with their original labels that they were listed with and that I received them with: The issue is that when I began to do a bit more research on these species, specifically Hexarhytis the paper that comes up shows and describes a completely different brachiopod. Looking up the other Athyrid the results I got were much closer but still not exactly like the brachiopod I have, but since I got more results for this search I could now do a bit of looking into the closely related taxa whic
  24. Hello, found what I think are nautiloids and brachiopods. I found the rock in a stream and I can't say what limestone (maybe brush creek or pine creek), but the area is Glenshaw Formation in northern Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. It's quite difficult for me to get good pictures, let alone good pictures with scale, so I'll tell you that the first two pictures are 2 cm (same organism), the second is 5.5 cm and the largest Nautilus in the last pictures is about 6 cm. All information is appreciated, thanks!

    Brachiopod Help

    Hi All, I have a bunch of brachiopods that got separated from their data and was hoping someone here might be able to restore some of it. They are apparently Paleozoic and likely from the US midwest. I see probable productids and maybe rhynconellids in there, but my knowledge of brachiopods is pretty limited. I strongly suspect they are all from one locality. Any help with locality, age, or taxa would be greatly appreciated! Best, Carl
