    One of a kind fossil from MA

    Last week on Fossil Friday, the Museum of Natural History and Planetarium in Roger Williams Park added the fossil I found from my post last time and still proud about it because they said on their Facebook page that its only one they have in the collection . Because its the first of its kind I discovered around New England until I find more fossils around that site in North Atteborough just waiting to be discovered with a story to tell. Museum Page Last Week
  2. I have another one for Id. If there is one. Pareidolia? Lol Def looks like something to me but I have no idea! Can't find anything like it other than possibly a Trilobite? Also a Centipede Arthropleura? Maybe a stretch but it's the closest thing I can find to it. I found it in Centralia Pa. and was not in the shale, was in the ground. It's about 2" long and the areas are raised and the pattern seems intentional if that makes sense. Thanks for any help!

    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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Hello everyone! I've been inspired by so many good Mazon Creek topics in this forum, I thought I would start my own. I'll post my own finds, which so far don't include anything as exotic as a Tully Monster, but maybe I'll get lucky on page 134 or so... I have to credit my kids with getting me interested in fossil collecting. I was always interested in rocks and fossils but when my 10 year old son had his dinosaur phase it really sparked my interest again. I wondered if an ordinary person like me could go out and find fossils? So I Googled fossil collecting and found out that not on

    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

  9. L.S., Hope someone here may have seen something similar before. The photographs below (apologies for the poor quality, made with phone) show about 18 mm-long structures, roughly oblong in outline and with a "dent" (in lieu of a better description). Their surface is quite shiny. The specimens come from the Pennsylvanian (probably Westphalian B or C) of Northern France. Anyone an idea what these might be? I have looked in the literature for similar seeds or cone bracts perhaps, but without success. Kind regards, Tim

    Mazon creek purchase (again)

    Hi everyone I recently spied this mazon creek nodule on an online auction site and stuck in a cheeky bid as I thought it looked interesting. Listed as "unidentified worm from Mason creek" Perhaps preservation is too poor for a positive ID however if anyone has any thoughts as to ID please mention. Total length of feature around 3cm.

    Seven-sided crinoid stem?

    This is an enlargment of a photograph I took a while back, where only later did I spot the odd fossil. Apologies for the low quality. I'm curious about the star-shaped object with seven corners. This is from the Madera Group in the Jemez Mountains of New Mexico, which is a Pennsylvanian carbonate shelf formation with abundant crinoids, brachiopods, and bryozoans. I've heard of star-shaped crinoid stem segments with five points, but not seven before. Any ideas?
  13. I’ve been to an outcrop on a cut highway ramp three times over the past three days. First two times I gathered rocks and broke them up at home. This time I stuck around and searched. This outcrop has a prominent exposure of the Pine Creek limestone. In the shale immediately above that, I found my first fossilized plant/tree tap root. 13oz Estwing pick for scale. I was able to recover it. It’s about 12 pieces. The top portion has a quartz looking center. I plan on taking some photos and then trying to piece it back together with some paraloid.

  15. Hello, everyone, I could use some help with this odd little tabulate coral I found yesterday in an old gravel pit in southwest Michigan. I can't guess at a formation or age since it's glacial debris, but the things I find range from possible Ordovician (rarely) all the way to lower Mississippian. I think it must be either Devonian or lower Carboniferous. When I first picked it up, I thought it was just another type of Favosites, given the corallite shapes and what turned out to be large mural pores (towards the left) when enlarged: (EDIT: TqB has suggested parasite trac

    Brachiopod from Bear Gulch - ID?

    Does anyone have any idea what kind of brachiopod this could be? I'm sure we can't identify the species, but maybe the family or even the genus? Carboniferous Serpukhovian Bear Gulch Montana
  17. Hello all, Here are a few Diplichnites incertipies specimens that I found on a 2019 expedition in Nova Scotia. It is illegal to collect fossils in NS without a permit, however all the fossils found at this site (see large arthropluera tracks and tetrapod footprints in prior posts) have been brought to the local museums attention. Stay tuned for more! I hope you enjoy, FossilsNS

    Carboniferous seed

    From my last hunt in the Westphalien of Northern France,the stem seems to grow from the seed(Trigonocarpus)but i think the seed probably fall on a Alethopteris stem,very strange An Idea?
