  9. It Pays to Look Closely!

    After the MAPS fossil show a few weeks ago, I had an hour to play around in a little rock in the Coralville, Ia area before departing for home. A piece of what I think was a cephalopod caught my eye and I tossed it into my bucket as I continued to scrutinize the shelf of Devonian rock in front of me. A few very nice coral pieces were added to my bucket before hitting the road. I didn't pay too much attention to my finds until yesterday. But as I was getting to put the cephalopod piece into the "fossils for kids" pile, I noticed something on it's surface. Such beauty bestowed to a junk piece of cephalopod! One must take the time to look closely or he/she often misses the diamond in the rough. Enjoy this simple fossil grouping.
  10. Nautiloid Cephalopod?

    Is this a fragment of a nautiloid cephalopod? It is quite large. Found in a limestone quarry. Thanks!
  11. Upper Devonian of NY

    Here are just a few of the fossils I find in the Upper Devonian of New York State. The site I found these specimens at is unpublished and unknown to collectors. Some of the rare things I have found - fish skull, phyllocarid, branchiopods, and perfectly preserved cephalopods. The large orthocone is very rare in this formation and I know of only one that was found according to old publications on this unit. I have found fossil logs several feet long that had to stay in the field. I have to pack food, water, tools, and more a 2-3 miles to the location so I'm limited as to how much I can carry back to my truck. Thanks
  12. Orthocone nautiloids

    I should preface this post by saying that the Paleozoic, marine ecosystems, and invertebrates are not generally my primary expertise, so I apologize if I am wildly off base or asking stupid questions. Sadly, I did not find these specimens myself, and so I do not have any particularly useful information on age or location. They were left in a desk drawer along with a collection of other invertebrate fossils, most (if not all) of which are Paleozoic in age. I have several different specimens of orthocone nautiloids, and I would love to know if anyone can refine that identification further. To make the situation more difficult, the siphuncle is only preserved in one of the specimens so far as I can tell (first set of photos below). For this specimen, the diameter of the nautiloid is ~3.5 cm (depending on exactly where it is measured), the inner diameter visible on top and the diameter of the siphuncle on the bottom are 4 mm, and the outer diameter is 8 mm. Here are the pictures. Thank you in advance for your time and input. Specimen #1: Specimen #2:
  13. Beloitoceras.jpg

  14. Nautiloid or trilobite?

    I'm posting this per the suggestion of @Fossildude19 initially I pegged this as a trilobite, until I saw @electricshaman's nautiloid get identified earlier today. Now I'm not sure. Thoughts?
  15. Jellyfish?

    Unfortunately I don’t have much useful detail to share with you here. I found this in Illinois at the bottom of a bridge filled with slabs of rock blasted from God-knows-what quarry. It other slabs like it contained fragments of brachiopod shells and calymene trilobites. It is about 4 1/2cm in diameter. My best guess was a jellyfish or something similar; a geologist whom I showed it to agreed, but honestly neither of us were at all confident in our assessment. Thoughts?
  16. Heteromorphic Ammonite Left Front View

    From the album james herrmann

    In this front left view I wanted to highlight the waving of the kelp. The challenge was to strongly support the heteromorph while still making the sculpture feel like there was movement and a lightness to the work.
  17. Collection Update

    So, I vanished from the forums for several months while dealing with a new career and some health issues. While I spent most of my time focused on being a new teacher, I couldn't break the bug over the winter season. While I did no collecting of my own, I proceeded to spend a ton of money online purchasing additions to my collection. I am pretty proud of my modest, but growing collection and wanted to show off. Where better than on TFF! This is going to take more than a few posts...

  20. Nautilus ID

    Trying to find a definitive identification for this nautiloid? Anyone know of any science-based paper online to refer to the Ma'der region of Morocco during this period of time and the cephalopod fauna? Any info appreciated. Devonian section in the Tafilalt, Ma'der region, Anti-Atlas, Morocco. (Clymenia genus ammonoid? do they get this large and the chamber/whorls are very similar to nautiloids)
  21. Ordovician Cephalopod mystery

    I have found a straight shelled Cephalopod in the ordovician of Russia. Middle ordovician asery level of the Leningrad area. Its different from the usual cephalopods found there. The septa are closely spaced and the siphuncle is small and close to one side of the couch. (Not the centre) From what I can tell it's neither orthoceras nor endoceras. The shell has ribbing on the bodychamber it which is also atypical. I would really appreciate any further insight!!
  22. Cephalopod Shell Color!

    Hello all! Recently I have been obsessed with cephalopods and realized there is a real lack of reconstructions of the color patterns on extinct nautiloids and ammonites! This led me to compile a list of known fossil color patterns on cephalopods. After a year of on and off research, I found about 90 species of cephalopods retaining official or undescribed, original patterning on their shells. These are the first 15 species on my list. The color markings are based both on descriptions and photographs of the fossil material. The shades of the markings are based on the fossils, but also inferred. I Hope you will appreciate my work!
  23. Cen Tex Cephalopod

    I found this a couple weeks ago the same day as the Petalodus that I already posted. It was in Brown County near Lake Brownwood in the Penn deposits. These are pretty common around here but usually about half this long or smaller. Found this before to much of it had eroded away.
  24. Pseudorthoceras???

    I am again going through thing that I have in my collection and came across this little thing and I am thinking that it may be a Pennsylvanian cephalopod, maybe Pseudorthoceras. I do not know the location that it came from and I am guessing that it is Pennsylvanian. Any help would be appreciated.
  25. I'm curious how one can determine whether a cephalopod fossil is an adult or juvenile? I seem to recall hearing from somewhere that if there is a double suture line in the middle of the phragmocone indicates it is an adult. Here are three Beloitoceras specimens I found at different localities. The specimen in the middle has double suture rings. Thanks for any insight.
