  1. TNDevonian

    Dicranurus spine?

    This is from the Devonian Birdsong shale in Parsons, TN USA. It is a solid spine resting across a Dalmanites retusus tail molt. I can’t think of anything with this slender taper and length other than a rare-for-Tennessee, Dicranurus spine. Is this a correct assumption?
  2. I'm currently working on a simulation of extinct biomes, i'm slowly learning how to make everything as realistic as possible for realtime 3d simulation. I would like to start with plants recreated from some Silurian, lower devonian and upper devonian, and slowly working to recreating the biomes in the areas where they lived and later i'l like to add animals aswell. All my research is made with google i'm not a professional in archeology or 3d art, some of the models are very simple and unpolished for now and will be updated. The project is in the early stages
  3. when visiting the region of Erfoud in Morocco we got some years ago a very unusual starfish. Devonian chalk, perhaps the layers with Cupressocrinites? Do not exactly know. It looks like Helianthaster, but there has nothing been published about starfishes like this one. What do you think? Does anyone know this starfish or has new literature about them? Size is around 10 - 12 cm (original diameter)
  4. Hi all, It has been a while and I haven't been particularly active on the forum lately as I've been quite busy, recently though I had some time available and due to fairly nice weather decided I'd go check out a new fossil site in eastern NY, which is probably the closest Paleozoic site to me. I was initially made aware of this site by @Fossildude19 who gifted me some fossils from here this summer and the unusual preservation as well as interesting fauna made me very interested. Big thank you to Tim for those wonderful pieces as well as informing me about the location. The locat
  5. Crinoid stem segments from arkona Ontario.
  6. It has been a while since I’ve posted some goniatites. The expansion of the quarry where I look for them is nearing to the end, and most of the good layers are gone. but sometimes we still find some neat specimens. this one was found a month ago. I used potassium hydroxide for the prepp of this one. The chemical reaction worked realy well on this specimen. Manticoceras sp. Late Devonian, Frasnian Belgium.
  7. ScottBlooded


    Hope everyone is doing well. Found this in the Needmore Formation so earlyish Devonian in age. My guess was some kind of bryozoan but looking at the texture up close I wasn’t sure. I’m not necessarily a bryozoan guy so I don’t have any frame of reference. If that is what it ends up being, does anyone know the genus/species? As always, I’m very grateful for your time.
  8. After a two year hiatus a fifth trilobite has recently been named in my honor. This time the Great German Trilobitologist: Ulrich Flick has bestowed Chotecops morrisoni upon yours truly. The holotype for C. morrisoni was discovered in the Devonian (lower Eifelian) Günterod Limestone of Günterod, Germany. In 1971 Professor Ivo Chlupáč established the new taxon Chotecops named for the type locality of the Chotec Limestone of the Czech Republic. Most fossil aficionados are familiar with Chotecops ferdinandi originating from the roofing tiles of the Hunsrück Slate: a classic trilobite that evokes

    More Fish Parts Uncovered

    On Nov 2nd, I posted this fish tooth for identification ( Onychodus sigmoides). Since then a few other "fishy" pieces have been uncovered. Does anything ring a bell with you concerning these two unknowns. 1. This broken specimen is 2.2 cm in length. 2. This is 3.9cm long

    Iowa Devonian Trip

    A couple months ago I took a trip to collect in the Middle Devonian of Iowa. It was a pretty good trip. I found some nice stuff and chatted with some very nice folks. Here are a couple of my finds. A partial ptyctodont tooth plate A neat sponge. I believe the genus is Astraeospongia but please correct me if I'm wrong. I was told these are rare from this area. A partial nautiloid And a partial Eldredgeops norwoodensis
  11. this is a strange one, coming from devonian deposits from morocco. I have seen this long time ago, but forgot the name. And could not find it in the LEBRUN-Book Size is approx. 3 cm Found it in a box today and think, it will be necessary to do a little work on it next winter. For my opinion everything is original
  12. Ive got some business in Coralville, Iowa so I did a walk along the river whilst I had some time to kill. Fossil corals everywhere which is no surprise as that’s where the name comes from. Here’s two. The walk along the Iowa River was really peaceful. I didn’t see a soul.
  13. Hello everyone, I recently received a lot of 3 brachiopods from Spain. Here they are with their original labels that they were listed with and that I received them with: The issue is that when I began to do a bit more research on these species, specifically Hexarhytis the paper that comes up shows and describes a completely different brachiopod. Looking up the other Athyrid the results I got were much closer but still not exactly like the brachiopod I have, but since I got more results for this search I could now do a bit of looking into the closely related taxa whic

  15. TNDevonian

    Unknown Devonian mollusk

    I have 11 specimens of this, and all of them are incomplete. I am posting an example that shows the salient features that apply to all. This is from the lower Devonian Birdsong Shale member of the Ross formation in Parsons, Tennessee. All specimens are 30~50 mm ovals consisting of growth rings only, and any hinge area is missing from all. The rings have no radial features or ornamentation. They are very shallowly concave and seemingly have no prominent apex The growth rings center from what appears to be a muscle scar, and the outer ring is always slightly thicker and wider. The shell is quite
  16. I love to show a really really nice fossil from our collection. Small stone (8 cm long) with two rare Acantharges mbareki from morocco / l´Ougnate, Devonian. Very special is to see both side. One is from the top, the other from the bottom, showing the hypostom (I think its the Hypostom, round but position fits) both are approx. 1.5 cm long enjoy
  17. From the album: Trilobites from Morocco and Rest of the world

    another Acantharges mbareki from l´Ougnate, Devonian. Rare to see the bottom side with special hypostom, size is approx. 1.5 cm
  18. From the album: Trilobites from Morocco and Rest of the world

    A nice and rare devonian Trilobite is the first one in this Album. It is Acantharges mbareki from l´Ougnate, size is approx. 1.5 cm, small but fine one

    Devonian Fish Tooth to ID

    This tooth was a pleasant surprise on a day of few fossils. It's ID remains a mystery to me.
  20. Over the last month or so, I've managed to get out to a few places. Although I can't say I've made stellar finds, I made out okay. In order of geologic sequence, I'll start off with the Ordovician. I have a spot in the Cobourg/Lindsay Fm that is typically very high energy, and so complete trilobite specimens are scarce. A few Isotelus parts, a Pseudogygites latimarginatus pygidium, a Ceraurinus marginatus glabella, and what may turn out to be a complete Flexicalymene senaria prone (to be determined after prep).
  21. Last weekend our club got together in a quarry. The leader said it was primarily for mineral collection and explained few if any fossils are found in this Devonian material. He was absolutely correct and I was equally disappointed! Our club hunts typically produce both minerals and fossils. But not this quarry. Here is what I scraped up: Not too impressive for 8 hours of exploration. I did manage to also find a trilobite cephalon that I donated to a member that found a pygidium. Anyways, the minerals, unlike the fossils were plentiful, varied
  22. I came across this for sale, not a fossil vendor so no information on it. Looks to be about 10cm across. I can make our scales, eye sockets, faint limbs - almost like a little Lizard / Thorny Devil. Any thoughts?
  23. It's been a long while since I've posted on here. I haven't been able to collect much lately, but I recently went out to some new haunts and came back with some pretty intriguing stuff I'll hopefully get to follow up on later. I'll start off with an interesting discovery I've had recently. The outcrop exposes rocks stretching from the upper(?) Brallier Formation to the middle(?) Foreknobs Formation. Although I tried searching in the past for brittle star trace fossils, I was mostly unsuccessful in this regard, and over time my interest in it shifted to the much more fossiliferous

    Port Huron, Michigan trip

    I drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix
