    Pleura ? Eldredgeops ?

    Devonian, Mahantango fm., Eastern WV. (average size thumb) Not much here to go on. I barely saw the edge of it so I dug it out ... just to see that it went nowhere. By comparing photos, it looks like a single pleura from an eldredgeops trilobite. Am I close ? If it is, its the first one I've seen here among quite a number of cephalons and pygidia. Been very busy with work, hope to get a chance to look around a bit toward the weekend. Cheers.

    Trilobite Trio

    Hi group, I think this is another greenops pygidium. If it is, this make a Trilo-Trio, all three species found within inches of one another. The Eldredgeops was peeking out of a natural fracture and looked like it might possibly be more than just a cephalon ..... but, no luck. Only had about ten minutes to look today, hope to get a chance to look more tomorrow. Devonian, Mahantango from eastern WV. Kind regards.
  3. Hi folks, just back from vacation. Realizing more what to look for, I found 5 more pygidia today as well as this little beauty which was in a piece of shale beside the road at the end of my driveway. I picked it up on my way back from the mailbox as it looked promising. This is trilobite (bit) #15 and replaces #7 as my new favorite. I really dig those eyes ! Just one eye was exposed and there was plenty of matrix there to contain the entire trilobite, but sadly after taking great care (and time) to scratch down to the body, there was only a cephalon. I was so hoping this was a complete on

    @DevonianDigger found this beauty before @Kane could get to it! @Kaneworked hard to dig this slab out but @DevonianDigger cracked the slab open before he could! Hence the new phrase (after his name) is: You've been Jayed! @DevonianDigger didn't even know it was from his pile. What a find!
  6. I just spent the past few days digging up some neat Devonian-era fossils from the Penn Dixie Hamburg, New York site and have two Greenops and 10 Eldredgeops that need prepped. Would anyone out there be willing to prepare these fossils for either a fee or for some of the spoils? I have a lot of high quality Eldredgeops, cephalopods, bryozoans, and crinoids that I could give up in exchange for the fossil preparations. I also have a bunch of shark teeth from Calvert Cliffs along with some neat shells (Turitella and Ecphora). Send me a personal message if you're up to the task or respond if you ha

    Blasdell/Hamburg NY Part 2

    Found some amazing stuff today with @Kane @ischua @DevonianDigger @Fossildude19 and @drobare We hauled some serious rock and had somewhat of an assembly line going with splitting and processing the pieces. It was a really solid day all around and everyone walked away with some sweet finds. The following is a sample of some of the cool stuff I've found. The rest is packed away. The first is a large cephalon and will look good despite not having a body and then there's a Spyroceras cephalopod that might benefit from some very gentle prep work. I really like cephalopods because of all the neat c
  8. So, in my previous post, "Day One In The New Workshop", I had posted a pic of a plate that I had hoped would be an Eldredgeops rana mass mortality plate. I decided to do some work on it to see if there were any more than the two hiding in the matrix. Apparently the rest of the trilobites opted for the blue pill. Turns out there was just the two, one enrolled, one prone, and neither 100% complete. There was also a nice little piece of what would appear to be Streptelasma ungula coral. I have been asked several times to "blog" about my prep work a

    First Day In The New Workshop

    Just spent the first morning in the new workshop playing with some bugs. Thought I would share day 1 progress. Eldredgeops rana after first prep session. Greenops boothi after some basic prep. Missing the cranidium and left librigena unfortunately. Tiny little Eldredgeops rana, with another little cephalon in association. Thinking this one has the potential to be a nice multi. Usually when I find these tiny little fellas this close together it's a mass mortality.

    Penn Dixie 11/2/2016

    Hit up the site again today with @ischua, found a lot of trilobites. Mike was lucky enough to land a plate with two complete, prone Eldredgeops rana overlapping. Gorgeous piece, hoping he'll post pics when he's able. In the meantime, I started to prep out some of my completes that I found including this fella, which I am very proud of: I know, I know... doesn't seem all that impressive of a prep job... That is until you see this: Still could use a little more work but I need a finer abrasive first. Also, needs a c

    E. rana 9/2016

    I was posting these pictures in a previous thread from my first cephalon that I prepped myself. I started this little guy as a practice piece until I suddenly discovered he had a complete body hiding in the rock. I've been uploading pictures step-by-step as I work on it. Figured I would share them as a separate topic.

    First Prepped Trilo-bit

    Have a nice ~2cm wide E. rana cephalon from the Penn Dixie site (~42.778860, ~-78.832180) that I collected earlier this summer. I have been practicing prepping trilo-bits and wanted to share my first "finished" result. There are still a few tiny places where I could've probably gotten a little more of the matrix out, but I went for 'better safe than sorry' given my low-grade equipment. Open to advice and/or suggestions!

    Penn Dixie Site - May 2016

    Here is a smattering of my finds from May 2016 up until last week! Good season already! I don't own an air eraser yet so I haven't done any detail prep work on anything yet. Small enrolled Eldredgeops
  15. I have been meaning to do this little experiment for some time. Normally an essentially complete trilobite from Penn Dixie in upstate New York will take me about 30 to 40 minutes to prep. Prepping one of these is relatively easy and generally gives decent results. The dark black trilo against the grey matrix always comes out nice.These trilos (eldredgeops) are about as common as I can collect and I probably have hundreds in buckets that might get prepped someday. So for the experiment I took a trilobite that was essentially complete and substantially covered with matrix. This was an extremely
