    Madison County Trip W/ Forum Friends

    Hi all, yesterday I met up with @Nautiloid and @Dean Ruocco in Madison County to collect some bugs at DSR and another site nearby. After exchanging some gifts we got to work collecting, you can see some of @Nautiloid’s finds on his post here… Dean and I got to work creating benches in a promising area whilst @Nautiloid checked out an area at the site I had mentioned to him prior to the trip. Straight off the bat we were all finding some decent bugs, here were the only Greenops I found yesterday. I always like

  7. Earlier in the beginning of the year, I was asked by one of my club members to lead our Syracuse club on a field trip to DSR. The member who asked is a longtime member of the Syracuse club as well as one in Pennsylvania, which is were he resides. The plan was I would lead the Syracuse members and he would bring the Pennsylvania members on the same day. We decided on May 7th. I realize that I am a bit late posting this report, so please forgive me. Been busy. It turned out to be a great day weather wise. I brought my youngest son Devin, even though his plan was to look for snakes. We met
  8. Hello everyone, I recently sifted through some more of my leftover Deep Spring Road matrix with a few more ordinary finds but this one really has me stumped. I found a very tiny brachiopod, the diameter of the shell is right around 0.5cm, maybe slightly more, while I have seen some like this the ornamentation of the shell threw me off a bit. For this size I expected it was probably something like Ambocoelia sp. maybe Emanuella sp., or something else similar, but neither of these have the fairly distinct growth lines around the shell seen in this specimen. The closest shell ornam

  12. I was just fossil hunting at the deep springs road site, and I decided to search for fossils in the dry part of the creek (downstream a bit, in the thorny brambles). I found many fossils, but I wondered as I was doing it whether fossil collection there was allowed. I figured that since the owner lets people fossil hunt on that property, and because that area was not cared for (bramble city), that it was okay. However, I stopped on the off chance that it wasn’t allowed in case it could affect any other people hunting on the site. Is fossil hunting there okay? If not, should I return the fossils

    DSR Crinoid (part 2)

    Hi everyone, nearly a month ago I posted this Devonian crinoid I found at Deep Springs Road here for an ID. I finally got it prepped (finished Feb 1st 2022), and it came out really nice! I originally thought it was a Logocrinus, but the more I look at it the less it checks out. I also thought it may have been a Ancyrocrinus, but it also doesn't look right. Does anyone have any ideas on an ID? Edit: the ID Decadocrinus multinosodus has been assigned to this Crinoid by a professional at the RMSC! Before prep After prep

    DSR Trip Part II

    Hello again everyone, sorry for the delay between Part 1 and Part 2. I went through some more material from DSR and I've made some pretty awesome finds. I might have enough specimens for a Part 3, but I still have to go through more material. The same goes for the Penn Dixie part, I've barely touched it yet and still need to photograph the finds. To kick Part 2 off, here is my best DSR find yet! A nearly complete (unfortunately disarticulated) Echinocaris punctata!!! My kitten Indy for scale The Echinocaris has one of the spikes on its t

    My First Trip to DSR and Penn Dixie

    Hello everybody, I recently took a trip out to DSR and Penn Dixie a week ago. The drive was pretty grueling, with 4 hours to DSR then another 2 hours after that to Penn Dixie. I think it was worth it though. Here are some of my finds from DSR. While surface collecting I came across a Greenops pygidium. I didn't think much of it until I looked a bit closer and saw a thorax! At this point I was praying for there to be an intact head, and there it was! Although it's missing a genal spine, it's by far my best personal trilobite find. Possibly my first in situ complete trilo

    DSR Crinoid

    The other day I was splitting some shale I brought back from a trip to DSR and found this awesome crinoid! It's the first complete (arms+ calyx + stem) I've seen from DSR. I'm going to have the stem transferred and then have it air abraded by a friend of mine, hopefully it'll be easier to ID by then. For now, my best guess is probably Gilbertsocrinus spinigerus

    Final trip to DSR for the season

    Yesterday my father and I took a trip out to DSR to collect samples for a school display project I'm making. We made some pretty incredible finds, including the largest trilobite I've ever seen with my own eyes. It was pretty nice at the site, the weather wasn't too cold. We immediately found some cool pieces, including 2 separate Echinocaris phyllocarid specimens (I found one, he found another) here's the Echinocaris I found, while just one valve it's got some incredible detail. here's the Echinocaris my dad found, it's the only juvenile one I

    First trip to DSR

    Hello everyone, Being from CT fossil sites tend to not be too close to my area, especially the Paleozoic ones I am most interested in. As a result of this I don't get to go fossil hunting too often, and today was my first time going to the amazing DSR site after not having hunted for fossils for almost a year. The site was incredible and completely loaded with fossils, the most common probably being Devonchonetes. Unfortunately one of the people I was with couldn't handle the weather and we had to cut the hunt short. Hopefully we will return tomorrow and

    Deep Spring Road ID's?

    So still going thru items from my Deep Spring Road quarry dig 2 years ago. The ruler marks are mm. Below are a few items I'm looking for ideas on. First 2 are bryozones I think, 3rd is ????, it consists of the negative which is the tan imprint on the upper left and the positive which is flipped up to the right.

    Fenestrate bryozoan prep

    Hello all! I found this pretty cool bryozoan back in July and I decided to give it a prep. Its really easy matrix to work with so its good practice for someone like me who’s only done a handful of preps. Like my past preparations, this will all be done manually using mainly safety pins.

    Central New York

    I’ve been out hunting three times since my first trip a few weeks ago. Today my whole family spent a few hours at DSR. It took a long time, but I finally found my first complete trilobite!
  25. Hi fellow forum members! So a while back I went on a field trip with the NYPS to a couple spots in central NY. Both spots were middle Devonian hamilton group. The first spot was Windom shale, and I believe the second spot was Upper Ludlowville. I started working on a trip report but only ended up doing the arthropods. I completely forgot about all of my other fins lol. Now I’m going to show some of my best non-arthropod fossils from the trip. Enjoy!
