  1. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found f
  2. Hi. The geological info for this find is: Pennsylvanian (Carboniferous), Conemaugh Group, Glenshaw Formation. I've been digging at an outcrop near a local stream and finding a lot of pecopteroids, neuropteroids, calamites, some sphenopteroids and possibly lepidodendron/stigmaria, sigillaria and cordaites. Recently the rain washed away the dirt at the base of this outcrop. Cutting away the rock at the base I found at least a dozen instances of these somewhat cylindrical and flat-topped and flat-bottomed rocks sitting one on top of the other. The first picture shows a cavity from which I removed

    Unusual Carboniferous Plant Fossil

    Howdy! This specimen comes from the Pennsylvanian Period, Conemaugh Group, Glenshaw Formation, in the Mason Shales below Brush Creek Limestone. The area has a lot of Pecopteroids, Neuropteroids and Calamites. However, I've been informed that it is not Calamites. I should also note that this piece was part of a larger fossil cast that was crumbling apart when I found it, and unfortunately, I was unable to save the rest of it. The last picture is the back side. All help is appreciated and thanks in advance!

    Tully Monster?

    Hi all, I've had this Mazon Creek fossil in my collection for a few years now. It is labelled as a Tully Monster, and seems to match up with other Tully Monster fossils I've seen on the forum and online, but I am by no means an expert, so I would appreciate any help with confirming the ID!

    Mazon Creek - Leaf or wing?

    Here's a new find from the I&M trip last weekend. The nodule was full of indeterminate plant fragments, and I almost tossed it until this one small bit (~1cm in length) caught my eye. Maybe a wing fragment or am I being hopeful? The texture is much different than what I've seen in plants, but that's a bit hard to capture in pictures. I can try to get better pictures tomorrow in the sun if needed. As usual, any thoughts are much appreciated.
  6. I'm seeking this obscure but important paper on Pennsylvanian floras. If you have access to a copy, please consider sharing it. Thanks!

    Fossil Sites in Western PA?

    Greetings, I’ve recently gotten back into prospecting fossils and I’m looking for some suggestions on sites to visit in western Pennsylvania. I frequently visit Ambridge PA to find fern and Calamite fossils from the Mahoning fm and would like to find more. I also would like to find fossils of early Permian (tetrapods, plants, or invertebrates). I hear that Washington county (south of Pittsburgh) has some great spots and would like to know if it were true. I also would like to show some of my findings from Ambridge as well. Note: I’d like this to be suggested places not j

    Mazon Creek Rhacophyllum

    Here are two interesting Mazon Creek flora nodules that popped yesterday. I believe they are both assigned to Rhacophyllum. If so, I am excited, I have not come across this "genus" before. Rhacophyllum cornutum Rhacophyllum fucoideum I am pretty confident on the IDs but confirmation is always great. I am quite interested however in the second specimen. It appears that there is a root-like structure emanating from the central base. I cannot find many images of R. fucoideum online so I am not sure if this is significant or not. As usual, any though

    My Best Carboniferous Finds

    Hi all, I’ve posted a few topics on the forum but have yet to show my entire collection, or my best finds. So here goes. A little background on me. I’ve been fossil hunting since I was very young, probably since I was 4 when I found a plant fossil in my backyard. Over the past few years as I have ventured into adulthood I have gotten very interested in the fossils of the Pittsburgh area. I will display my best finds here and periodically update the thread with new finds. As a note, many of the vertebrate fossils I have found are rare and may be important to science. I have been in contact

    Large imprint found in limestone

    I found this huge cylinder imprint when I was out fossil hunting, it was too big to take with me, so I just took some pictures. I was curious about it, I’m not sure if I’ve seen anything similar before? Found on the Missouri River outside Kansas City. Could it be a cast? Or just a rock structure? There looks to be a pattern imprint left behind. About 1-1.5 feet long. Sorry for the pics, I couldn’t take the specimen home as it was huge.

    Salthill Quarry, UK

    About a week ago my boyfriends' parents and uncle came to visit us in Lancaster and on Monday I had the pleasure of entertaining them for the day while my boyfriend was pulled away unexpectedly by work. With the prospect of a beautiful drive (and of course, selfishly, some fossils) I decided to take them to Salthill Quarry. It's an interesting site as it's an old limestone quarry that has been turned into a nature reserve, in the middle of an industrial park. Whilst walking we all thought we could smell bakery goods and were getting hungry, I looked this up later and found a pet fo

    Found along Lake Erie

    Hi everyone, new member here. We went camping at Rock Point provincial park here in Ontario and we were amazed with the amount of fossils along the beach. From what I’ve read, the fossils are from a 350 million old reef but couldn’t figure out how to identify some of the items we found. The first one looks like a conical shell, the second almost looks like a pill bug? And finally, the last is possibly the cross section of a plant? Hoping someone here can help satisfy the curiosity of a first time fossil finder! Thanks!!
  15. Hey all, I'm hoping that one of you has access to a page that's missing from the online pdf version of USGS Professional Paper 203: James Williams' 1943 STRATIGRAPHY AND FAUNA OF THE LOUISIANA LIMESTONE OF MISSOURI. The missing page is Plate 9. I have everything else, so if you happen to have access to a hardcopy version, just scan the plate and post it here, thanks so much!

    Interesting piece? Coral?

    I found this piece outside Kansas City Missouri on the Missouri River. Does anyone have an idea what it could be, looks sort of like coral, haven’t come across this before.
  17. This concretion opened today. I cannot decide if it a poorly preserved syncarid or more hopefully a partial centipede (Mazoscolopendra?). Any thoughts? @RCFossils @Nimravis @flipper559 @bigred97
  18. Carboniferous vertebrates fossils, for example fish and tetrapod teeth, i think are incredible very rare, also Devonian vertebrates are not common fossils, but sure not so rare as Carboniferous, for example the Devonian fish Osteolepis are common. If you have any Carboniferous or Devonian vertebrate material, post photos!

    Mazon Creek Collection

    I'll update this thread with my Mazon Collection over the next few weeks. With some good weather out yesterday, I managed to get my first fossil hunt in for the season and will post a report in this topic. I will be moving this upcoming summer which will put me even further from Mazon Creek so I have purchased a few pieces to fill in the genus/species I haven't found yet and will mention if I purchased a fossil. I still hold out hope to find some of these pieces I purchased eventually but will realistically be difficult if I only can make 1 trip a year. Fauna Tullimo

    Blue Beach, Nova Scotia - Texture

    Loose on the cobble near the mudflats/water at Blue Beach, Nova Scotia. Just wondering if this is textured rock or any kind of fossil. Thanks for your help with this. Cheers
  22. Hi all, this strange piece came with a batch of edestus fossils that were found in a coal mine in Illinois. Have no idea what it could be, the front seems to be coated in black coal mostly while the back has what appears to be ridges. All I know about the location is it was found in a coal mine along with some edestus teeth that is Carboniferous in age. Hoping with some help to get to the bottom of this mystery.

    Interesting fossil, any ideas?

    I found this piece on the Missouri River outside of Kansas City, MO. I haven’t really come across something exactly like this, any ideas? coral? Some kind of segmented worm?

    Blue Beach, Nova Scotia - Trace?

    Loose on the cobble at Blue Beach, Nova Scotia. I believe this is a trace fossil. Just wondering if anyone can recommend some resources on how to interpret trace fossils? Thanks for your help with this.
