    Carboniferous Eurypterid

    Hi I am Wondering if anyone could give this fossil an ID the seller called it “Carboniferous Eurypterid” and it was from Knob Noster, Missouri they said it could be Adelophthalmus what do you guys think?

  6. Hello Everyone!! I recently spent a week with Allan Lang collecting eurypterids. Me and Allan have been good friends for a couple of years, he is kind enough to invite me up to dig with him! We found many things over the course of the week some of the highlights were a Proscorpius, a few complete specimens of Acutiramus, and many Eurypterus. Ill attach some photos below. We spent most of the time splitting massive chunks of waterlime from the Phelps member of the fiddlers green formation. It can be very dangerous at times due to the weight and size of the rock, but often many complete eurypte
  7. I live in jersey near Philadelphia and I was hoping to find eurypterid fossils but the only stop I can find is Lang’s quarry which is over 5 hours away and cost a ton to hunt. I am wonder if anyone has found evidence of eurypterids in Pennsylvania , Maryland, or southern New York. If you have any pictures I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Noel.

  9. Hey everyone, today I found a new locality!! This locality is in the famous Shawangunk formation and it produces rare eurypterids. I have found Shawangunk material at a few localities but its interesting to compare the abundance of fauna at different localities. This new locality (like the others) primarily produces Parahughmilleria, However, 2 odd specimens were also found. One really reminds me of the invalid species Dolichopterus otisius. It is likely Nanahugmilleria clarkei. The other specimen is much more odd to me it could be Hughmilleria shawangunk but it could also be Kiaeropterus otis
  10. Hello everyone! Today I acquired a specimen that is of a rarity that's nearly unparalleled. The specimen in question is the cuticle of a Eurypterid from the famous, classic, and closed Ordovician locality at Swatara Gap. I believe it is undescribed and I can tell its a eurypterid for sure by the scaling pattern on the cuticle. Eurypterids aren't unheard of at Swatara Gap but I have never seen a specimen or even known about a specimen other then the one I have. They are extremely rare and were probably over looked by collectors due to not knowing what they were. I acquired the eury

    Eurypterid In Siderite Nodule

    Hi All, Here is a Eurypterid in a Pennsylvanian age siderite nodule from Indiana. I'm hoping someone can point me towards a family, maybe even genus, ID for the specimen. I know the images don't show many of the fine features but I'm hoping the overall shape is distinctive. Also, I'm just starting to wade through Eurypterid PDFs now but if anyone can recommend a good review manuscript for the group I'd be grateful. Thanks for your consideration. Here are the two halves of the nodule:
  12. A few days ago I spent the day collecting eurypterids with my good buddy Allan Lang. Firstly id like to thank Allan for his kindness towards me and his mentorship toward me, I'm very grateful towards him hes helped me a substantial amount and its always good seeing him. Anyway we probably found about a dozen good eurypterids as well as some neat associated fauna. Ill attach some photos below of some specimens we found! Top to bottom. Dolichopterus jewetti Undet cuticle, Prehaps the weathered carapace of Buffalopterus or Acutiramus. (Allan was generous enough to give this to me a

    Fossil ID? Eurypterid?

    Found this literally right on the summit of Pen y fan in south wales in a scree pile. Have had a bit of a research and everywhere says fossils are very rare in this type of old red sandstone... does anybody have any ideas? Its about 3cmx3cm. Well aware it could just be a rock... Cheers!
