  1. Bringing Fossils to Life

    Bone ID

    For the longest time I have puzzled over this strange bone. At first of course I thought it was a "Hynerpton scute," because I have a memory of finding it somewhat near where the holotype was found and no papers picture them, so I couldn't compare. Recently I've doubted its identity as I've researched Ichthyostega scales and scutes, but have no idea of what it actually is. Any ideas? On the imprint nearest to the camera a texture can be seen, shiny smooth with little circular rounded bumps that are the negatives of pores. Size a little less than 1.5 cm from end to end.
  2. Bringing Fossils to Life

    What kind of Jawbone?

    A few months ago I found this bone at Red Hill before I learned of the need for a permit but didn't grasp its significance. Later I realized it was a jawbone section with four small teeth in it. Unfortunately I dropped it and the end of the most complete tooth fell off, but not before I was able to take pictures. I have not tried to finalize preparation for fear of destroying the remaining teeth. I can't see any sutures, at least not in the place they would be for a tetrapodomorph, and the teeth look more like Hyneria anyway. However, all Hyneria jawbones I've seen have two rows of teeth, a s

    Fish plate

    From the album: Misha's Late Devonian Fossils

    Small plate from fish found at Red Hill. My best guess as to the ID would be a Turrisaspis sp. Posterior dorsolateral plate, although I am not sure that that's what I have here as I couldn't really find much to reference. Late Devonian, Catskill Fm., PA.

    Fish Scale?

    Anyone know what this is?? It looks like some sort of fish scale, and it has a chunk of some sort of bone or something attached to it. Anyways, here is main info: Date collected: 11/6/21 Formation: Catskill Member: Duncannon Age: Late Devonian, 365-361 mya What was collected: possible scale attached to a bone? Scale is broken in half. Appearance: scale is ridged, four ridges seen, covered in striations running from left to right. It looks like it is about as thick as half a dime.
  5. I managed to actually take a vacation last weekend and meet up with our very own Tim and Paul to collect Late Devonian verts from PA. I first met up with Paul at Red Hill. When I first arrived at the site I didnt know the person there was him. So I parked and walked into the ditch at the base of the road-cut and immediately spotted a strange form in a piece fallen from above. As it turned out it was a Gyracanthus spine! Gyracanthus sp. Turns out the mystery collector was Paul, who was kind enough to give me a rundown on the site, its geology, and show
  6. This is continuing the first post. The Tioga site is a near shore exposure of the entire Catskill formation. So besides the general Holoptychius and bothriolepis fauna, lungfish have been described from a skull table and tooth plates. Here is a tooth plate from Dipterous fliescheri. A similar plate was described from the Troy, PA area.

    Catskill Fm Plant Material?

    While collecting in the Catskill Formation of Pennsylvania I came across this piece that struck me as a little strange. It is different from other plant material that I have seen/found at the Red Hill site. I ended up bringing it back home just because of how odd it was. Is this perhaps Callixylon? Alternatively it could just be geological. Any help is greatly appreciated. Here is a close-up of the big piece in the middle:
  8. So an interesting summer. As some of you might know, Parks and Recreation came down hard on the Red Hill site while I was working there. At some point, the site had been transferred to Forestry, ya go figure. So there has not been an active permit for some time. But I was homeless and in need of a project so I was able to connect with Prof. Dave Broussard of Lycoming College and shift my focus to the sites along Rt 15 north of Williamsport. Still Catskill although the exposures at Powys Curve are Sherman Creek (Frasian) member instead of the Duncannon (Fammenian). I had collected there with my

    Devonian Catskill Fm unknown

    I was wondering if this is even a fossil or some kind of weird rock formation I found. It’s from NEPA in part of the catskill formation. Let me know what you guys think!! Basically all I’ve ever found there is trace fossils so I wasn’t sure if this is even anything. Thanks all!
  10. From an abandoned blue stone quarry in northeast Pennsylvania . This location has produced archaeopteris leaves. This part of the exposure is Shaly sandstone . The thing that caught my eye has a brownish color instead of the gray of the surrounding rock . Surrounding rock all breaks with angular fractures while this looks rounded. It’s a little weird to my eye because it gets wider going up I expect stumps to be widest at the base . Running across the outcrop the layer. With the possible stump is a two or 3 inches thick and is full of woody Fossils, which makes me wonder if
  11. From a long abandoned bluestone quarry in NE Pennsylvania. Devonian, Catskill formation. Found by my sister-in-law, who was really looking for live birds! Ideas?
