  1. This weekend I was able to spend a couple hours breaking rock at one of my favorite Pennsylvanian sites. This site exposes the lowest units of the Carbondale Formation, from the top down: Mecca Quarry Shale (MQS), Francis Creek Shale, Colchester No. 2 Coal, paleosol. At various times both the St. Peter Sandstone and Platteville Group (both Ordovician) have been exposed at the bottom of the pits (they were not visible this trip), representing a major unconformity in the area. The concretions from the Francis Creek Shale (i.e. Mazon Creek fossils) are not productive here - my area of focus was i

    Pennsylvanian unknown

    I found this fossil last year in the Mecca Quarry Shale (Pennsylvanian) of Illinois. I posted it previously but no definitive answer. I got a new digital microscope recently and decided to snap a few photos of this specimen up close. Hopefully they might help, though I still have no idea what it is. Thoughts?

    Carbondale PA

    Hello everyone! I am in the process of investigating the fossil site in Carbondale PA but can't seem to find the exact place where to go or any directions, there were some things I saw on the forum but they look like they are on private property. If anybody knows about it new insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Fossil sites around CT

    Hi everyone, I am new to this form and would like to know if there are any fossil sites in the general area around Connecticut. I myself live around Danbury CT and am not sure what places I could visit that are at most 4 hours of driving away from here. I have read about sites in PA like St.Clair and Carbondale but I believe both are closed now. Red Hill is also around that area but I don't know how I would get permission to go there. Also I don't really have a preference on type of fossil plants, fish, invertebrates, everything is welcome. Thank you

    Edestus teeth

    From the album: Sharks and fish

    The shark relative is genus of eugenodontia holocephalid from the Carboniferous-Pennsylvanian age Anna shale formation, Carbondale group, found in different Illinois coal mines. I dont know(yet)which mine these were found in. This unidentified species is of the "vorax-serratus- crenulatus-heinrichi" or "E. heinrichi group", with the teeth being more of a standard triangular shape, as opposed to being thinner and pointed at a forward angle as in the "E. minor" group http://www.thefossilforum.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=50175

    Carbondale, PA

    I took to trip to the Poconos this weekend and stopped by Carbondale for a hunt (thanks Jeffrey P for the info on it)! I think I did well and had a really fun trip. It was a little tricky to get there but definitely worth it! I found several fossils ferns and other plants as well as fossil bark - I'm not 100% done going though them yet, but these are my favorites of the trip. On the last two, I would appreciate any info. on what they may be. Thanks! ..

    Trip to Carbondale

    First of all, thanks to @GordonC for alerting me of the Carbondale sites existence, and secondly Jeff at this site for giving me directions, as well as further information. Okay, so being in the area, about 45 minutes away in lake Wallenpaupack, I decided to take a trip to Carbondale. This trip turned out fantastic, at least I think it did (I've never hunted in Carboniferous stuff, so I may be over excited over what I've found). The information online is sparing, so I'm gonna give a rundown on it here so others can hunt. First you drive to this location . Go between the third and fourth apartm

    Weird "7" shaped fossil

    Here's another fossil from Carbondale, shaped like a check, or an L or a 7. Two in fact, I split the rock and it's inside it as well, so its thick. Any ideas?

    Fossils to be identified

    Here's some Carbondale (llewellyn formation) finds, any ideas? note: sorry about the oblique angles on some, it's hard to see striations on some without it. Obverse of last one

    Carboniferous plants in need of ID

    Here's the first of my finds from Carbondale. It's a plant of some sort, Pennsylvanian. I have a few, these have positive and negatives, some seem to have a few sprouting from one center. I'm new to this time period, so I'm letting you guys ID this for me. Ones a little broke after the ride back, I guess I'll use some super glue.

    Greetings from Carbondale!

    This week we found ourselves headed for Carbon County, PA and looked up some places to go hunting. St. Clair was out, but there were some references to Carbondale here and there. As the name suggests, Carbondale was a coal mining town. There are active and inactive areas all over town, much of it fossiliferous. The most popular spot seems to be the one we went to, a tailings pile next to an apartment complex off of Westside Rd. The land status is unknown, but there were was nothing posted, so we ventured in as many have done before us. Our directions said to follow the gravel path
