ziggycardon posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHi everyone! Today I went on another fossil hunting trip with the fossil club the BVP. https://www.paleontica.org/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=3&language=en We visited the "La Couvinoise" quarry in Couvin, Belgium. The rocks in this quarry are part of the Hanonet Formation which lies at the boundry of the Eifelian & Givetian. But the layers we searched in today where all Givetian in age (387,7 - 382,7 mya), I mainly searched in the Crinoïd & Brachiopod layer. Although I have to admit that we probably visited the quarry at a bad moment, as the yield was quite poo
ziggycardon posted a topic in EuropeHi everyone. I was hoping some of our European members might be able to help me out a little. I am currently at home due to depression, burn-out and severe anxiety attacks all related due to the COVID-19 situation (I work in a essential store and I belong to the risk groups, so after 6 months the stress finally became too much).

Saturday 09/06/2018 the BVP ( read: local paleontology club ) organised a fieldtrip to the quarry of " La Couvinoise" next to the town of Couvin. Here we find Eifelian deposits (former Couvinian ) We had a very nice day with various finds and the whole day we had the background noise of a chorus of green frogs who had made their home in the large pound in the old part af the quarry. The site delivered a multitude of fossil corals and brachiopods and sometimes a gastropod or even a trilobite fragment. the start of the excurtion:
Hi all, As a new member, I would like to share with you all a few pictures I took from an Eifelian limestone I found last sunday near the Couvin area In Belgium. This area is well-know for the abundance of Devonian coral reefs, and it has been studied for many decades. Although I'm quite familiar with the fossils from this area, I found this odd looking specimen in situ. And I have no clue what it could be. Could somebody help me with the Identification? So, long story short: Location: Couvin (Belgium) Age: Devonian Stage: Eifelian Lithology: Limestone Facies: Marine coral reef ID: ?
