  1. Bringing Fossils to Life

    Unknown fossils from the Coburn Formation

    Recently I went fossil hunting along a road cut revealing some of the Coburn Formation, latest Ordovician. I was stunned to find that so much of the ecosystem was made up of only Trilobites and Cephalopods. I found trilobites such as Isotelus and Cryptolithus (First picture). My find of the day was a large, very heavy plate of rock that preserves different parts of large Isotelus gigas from multiple individuals, and the circular cross-section of a small cephalopod (Second picture). However, I'm having trouble identifying these cephalopods. In the very few that preserve the outer sell, faint s

    Cryptolithus bellulus

    From the album: Nautiloid’s Trilobite Collection

    This is a nice specimen of C. bellulus from the Upper Ordovician Reedsville Fm. of Pennsylvania. Acquired from an old collection.

  3. Hey everyone, Thought I’d share a recent acquisition of mine with you all! This is an extremely rare odontopleurid called Diacanthaspis sp. from the closed Ordovician locality at Swatara gap. These trilobites were not often found at the trilobite beds at Swatara Gap but rather in the echinoderm beds. One publications states that in 100 hours of digging one could expect one articulated specimen. It is probably the 7th 8th most rare trilobite species at Swatara behind Proteus and Platylichas.

    UK Trinucleid Trilo

    Normally I try to only buy fossils with adequate identification but a while back I impulse bought this small trinuclid from the UK. based on my research it doesn't mach lloydolithus or salterolithus, so I'm inclined to say cryptolithus. What do you guys think?

    Cryptolithus cephalon

    From the album: Fossils of the Upper Ordovician Lorraine Group in New York

    Cryptolithus lorrainensis Upper Ordovician Lorraine Gr. Whetstone Gulf Fm. Jefferson County, New York Collected 11/11/19
  9. Last fall I went on a fossil hunting trip to a creek in Adams, NY. Along this creek were exposures of the Whetstone Gulf and Pulaski formations. There were many different layers, each with different fauna. Some layers were barren, while others had many species. Some of the most common fossils were cryptolithus and triarthrus trilobites, as well as brachiopods, bivalves, gastropods, ostracods, and straight shelled nautiloids. Some layers contained pyrite and some of the fossils in these layers were partially pyritized. (Including some of the trilobites!!).

    Trilobite tail, or not?

    I found this Cryptolithus in the Late Ordovician, Viola Springs Formation of Carter County Oklahoma. Can someone tell me if it is C.fittsi which I see on a fauna list for the site or another species? I'm also wondering if the segmented strand below it is part of the tail or something else?

    Fossiling on the Ides of March

    It’s been quite some time since my last post here on the forum – more than two years! I missed the forum and it’s good to be back. This last week was spring break for some colleges in Pennsylvania, mine included. Thursday we saw beautiful sunny weather, warm enough to shed the heavy winter coats we’ve been wearing for months. Checking weather forecasts, I was pleased to find that Friday would be similarly warm – sunny and mid sixties to seventies! Perfect fossiling weather! I seized the opportunity. I knew these unseasonably warm temps could be gone as soon as they had arrived and didn’t
