  5. Red Hill is a site I first went to 10 years ago with my son, Ian who was 10 at the time. It is a very deep road cut into the uppermost part of the Catskill Formation representing a late Fammenian river system that was draining the Acadian mountains to the east and emptying into the inland sea in western PA and OH. It is one of a handful of sites in the world where Devonian tetrapods have been found. The site has fossil layers in both channel margin (red layers) and flood plain (gray-green layers) facies. While it is an active research site and groups go there under the understanding that anyth

  7. Hello, These plates are from the Catskill Formation (Upper Devonian) of Lycoming County, Pennsylvania. I am not very familiar with Devonian fishes, so I have made my guesses based on abundant forms in the area / formation. I am hoping that some of the Devonian fish experts might be able to verify or otherwise identify them. The first composite photo are scales of what I am calling the lobe-fin Holoptychius sp. The second composite photo is armor of what I am tentatively calling Bothriolepis sp. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    From the album: Catskill Formation

    This Jaw was found and extracted from the wall at Red Hill in North Bend, PA by my son Ian (DevonIan Fish). It is similar in size to the jaws he discovered in 2014 which are now in the collections Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia and will be used to re-describe Hyneria.
  10. This summer I went on a trip to Red Hill, the famous freshwater vertebrate locality in Pennsylvania. The fossils found at the site are from the Duncannon Member of the Catskill formation, which is Famennian stage Devonian in age. I was lucky enough to find an area they had recently used a jackhammer to expose new fossils, in which I found loads of great fossils. I ended up with a lot of unidentified fossils, so I need some help with these. I think this is a fish bone: I'm pretty sure this is a megalichthyidid scale. I like how it is colored! Fish chunks. I don't know if these would be i

    Devonian Plants In Bluestone

    I used some quarried "Pennsylvanian Bluestone" for a fountain in our backyard several years ago. I noticed plant fossils in one of the stones but didn't really think about it much until recently with my new interest in fossils. Anyway, I realized that these are likely upper Devonian stones from the Catskill Formation. According to this page on the "bluestone industry", "The sand-size grains that make up bluestone were deposited during the Middle to Upper Devonian Period of the Paleozoic Era, roughly 345 to 370 million years ago." Here's the stone. Probably nothing terribly significant but d
