  1. 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
  2. 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

  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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…
  7. 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
  8. 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

    Trip to Oglesby 10/08/2022

    A few days ago, I went with @Tales From the Shale and another friend on a fossil hunting trip to a Bond Formation Roadcut in Oglesby, Illinois with rocks dating around 307-303 Million years ago, to the Pennsylvanian section of the Carboniferous era. We worked for at least 5 to 6 hours, but it was worth it! This was one of the best fossil hauls I've had in a long time at that location! The true gem of that trip was this Cladodont tooth I discovered by sheer accident!!! The specimen may come from the Shark Gilkmanius, but I'm not too sure?

    Oglesby 10/08/22

    This Saturday I went over to Oglesby again joined this time by fellow user @Joseph Fossil. We hunted for about six hours straight, the trip being the most productive I've had here. I showed him and his friend what to look for when searching for Chondricthyan teeth. Joe collected 2 Cladodont teeth, and we both walked out with two partial Petalodus specimens. Here's a very complete Echinaria. Neospirifir dunbari, they'll look nice when prepped and put back together. An Antiquatonia portlockianus Linoproductus cora A pair
  12. A few weeks ago I went on a fossil hunting trip to Albany County. I was hunting in the New Scotland formation which is lower Devonian in age. It was very quick and easy to collect in and the dry dredging technique was quite useful. The rock was a very thin shaly limestone which could break easily but many of the fossils had been silicified, making it easy to pop them out of the rock. I found many different species of brachiopods, some gastropods, lots of corals and large bryozoa and a few trilobites

    Devonian Brachiopods

    I found lots of these guys while searching in the Hungry Hollow formation near Arkona. Age is Middle/Upper Devonian.
  16. Yesterday I was able to get out to Onondaga County in central NY. While I was there I got a chance to do some fossil hunting at two locations. The first was in Pompey Center, NY near Pratt’s Falls. The second location was a creek in Delphi Falls. The rock at both of these locations was the Skaneateles formation. I was able to get into a different formation at the second spot that was more shaly and had better preservation. This was my first time fossil hunting in the middle Devonian and I was amazed with the number of bivalves I found. (I’ve never found one in the lower Devonian near me). As w
  17. Over labor day weekend my wife and I decided to go camping at Crystal lake in the big snowy mountains near Lewiston Mt. We got there late Friday night to get a camping spot and Saturdays morning we decided to hike to some Ice caves that were 5 miles away. Along which there were ample exporsures of mississipian madison limestone. About a mile in I turned over a rock during a water break and there was my first brachiopod. Now that we knew what were were looking for we kept our eyes peeled and were rewarded with this large hash plate full of brachiopods that I think some are spirifera.
  18. Last summer I posted a trip report about finding some Pennsylvanian black shale in a river bed in East Central Illinois http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/106753-628-illinois-black-shale-trip-w-listracanthus/. I was able to visit the site again once more in the fall last year when the river was running much lower and collect more and larger pieces of the finely bedded and fissile shale. Since then I have been slowly splitting and going through the rocks I brought home, and finding many interesting fish parts- that is definitely the dominant fauna presen

  20. I recently came across a new locality that exposes a calcareous section of the Red Mountain Formation. After braving poison oak, wasp attacks, swarms of gnats, and spiders, I've come out with some spectacularly preserved brachiopods, especially for this formation. I believe Dolerorthis sp.? Resserella sp. Not quite sure, looks like some kind of orthid. Leptaena sp. Another unknown orthid. A really well preserved Lingula sp.
  21. In the summer of 2020 jpc and I had planned to get together in Eastern Wyoming to collect. That trip was unfortunately aborted by the coronavirus outbreak that year. This year, that conversation resumed and a new plan for a three day excursion in June emerged. I decided to make it a two week long car trip, driving all the way from New York, a longer car trip than any I've made in the past 25 years. That would afford me the opportunity to stop at some other sites on the way there and back, plus see some family. Another big reason for driving was an opportunity to visit and collect at the Big Ce
