    Coprolite?

    I have just found this little coprolite? yesterday. This is the second time a coprolite-like fossil has turned up in the shale from the Leighton Fm. I am not really sure on this one, though, due to the presence of crinoid stems. The fossil(s) are from the Leighton Formation, Maine; which is Pridoli, Silurian. The main reason I think it is a coprolite is because of its situation in the shale. The rest of the shale around it is relatively uniform, with no fossils whatsoever. The fossils present in it are one crinoid stem, quite a few ostracods, a very small Orbiculoidea brachiopod,
  2. I have just finished preparing this little fossil. I really have not seen anything like it. It reminds me of a eurypterid head fragment, or something similar, but the ridges on the "internal mold" are perplexing. Also, it is horizontally symmetrical, suggesting a scale or segment. It is from the Leighton Formation, Maine; which is Pridoli, Silurian. The pictures below first show the "internal mold" under raking light, than of it under direct light. The third picture is of the "external mold" under direct light. It does not have any surface detail that would be brought out by rakin

    Eurypterid ID help

    I was given this Eurypterid fossil a while back and I was looking to see if anyone had any ideas towards a species, i’ve got no idea where it came from other than somewhere in the New England/Canada area. Someone has told me it looks like an Adelophthalamus but id like some more opinions. Thank you

    CNY Eurypterid?

    Hello! Recently I’ve had the chance to go fossil hunting for trilobites, in central New York. I’ve been to the hill site in Tully NY, behind the hotel. I was fortunate enough to find a fairly complete Greenops Trilobite, and a few smaller, less complete sections. I spilt open a section of rock, and saw what I thought was part of a large trilobite eye at first. I’m not too familiar with the types of fossils that can be found here, but the texture seemed similar to a small piece of the head of a eurypterid. I’ve never found a eurypterid before, and it’s been on my list for a while, so maybe it’s

    EURYPTERID "CLAW"

    I've often wondered as to the purpose of the tiny "claw" at the very tip of a eurypterid's swimming paddle. It's really very small and I can't imagine what it would be used for. It's not an anomaly as quite a few genera have them. Below are couple of pictures of one of my specimens, and just so you don't think me crazy and seeing things, there is also an illustration showing the feature. Any comments would be welcome. Tom

    Eurypterid walking legs

    I have one simple question, How do we know eurypterid walking legs are legs? I find eurypterids to be one of the strangest Paleozoic creatures and while looking at some pictures of them I noticed how similar eurypterid walking legs and wobbegong mouths are. I have not seen yet just a single eurypterid walking leg fossilized alone. Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance
  7. Hi all just bought this Silurian Eurypterid Balteurypterus head cephalon wasn’t overly expensive thought it looked cool and it’s from a trusted seller just wanted everyone’s opinion on it
  8. Hi everyone - My wife and I were thinking about going eurypterid hunting this weekend or next if the weather cooperates. I was wondering if anyone is willing to share any public sites found around the Buffalo area (I know the Williamsville member is exposed in many places around Buffalo). Of course, we would not share this info anyone. Also, if anyone will be out at a site - we could even meet you there. I have a geology background but know very little about this area. Thanks! Pete

  11. Sorry, the quarter was all I could find for a scale reference. My 8 year old spotted this in an area with lots of small Devonian fossils (crinoids, etc.). I thought this looked a bit like a portion of a eurypterid, but I am very inexperienced, and would not be surprised to find that I am waaaaaay off base. Any help with an ID would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

  13. Hello all! As I’ve been taking a closer look at some of the rocks from my previous fossil hunt on August 22, I have been finding some pretty cool fossils that I overlooked at first. I am going to show some of the more interesting ones on this post. Enjoy! ~ Owen

  20. Hi Forum members, Yesterday I went to a spot in Herkimer County in search of Eurypterids! This spot exposed the Fiddlers Green Formation of the Upper Silurian Bertie Group. I had never found a Eurypterid so I was excited to go, and I had heard this was a productive spot. I got there and the first rock I looked at had an exploded eurypterid on it! There were eurypterid bits and pieces all over the place. Eurypterids seemed to be much more abundant at this spot than I thought they would be! I only got to stay there for a half an hour but managed to trac
  21. Hey how’s it going, just have two small things I’m curious about and figured someone would be able to put me on the right track. I’m not very familiar with this sliver of time and it’s a bit of a mystery to me. Both of these were found at different locations, but are Fiddler’s Green Upper Silurian “waterlime”. The first was found near some Eurypterid bits (on different plates) but it was surface collection effectively, and found in a large pile (little chance of recovering the rest of it and couldn’t find any at the time). The second is from the same strata but in a location a decent d
  22. The museum I work for has been doing a series of short video segments called Fossil Fridays. I am working on one about Devonian marine animals. I can cover sharks, conodonts, acanthodian fish, coral, sponges, and trilos. I do not have any fossils of Eurypterids and would love to include them. I am hoping a TFF member might be willing to provide a short 20-30 second video clip of a sea scorpion. We would credit the fossil as yours and we only need location information in addition to the video. If you think you might be interested in helping us out, please send a PM.
  23. Hey there! I know I know, I've been missing in action for the past few months. Work and Field work kept me busy. But I've now am taking the time to update my blog, and sharing some of my recent adventures. This one is not so much of a fossil hunting trip, but of discovery on fossil history in New Brunswick. A few weekends ago I went for a day trip to Saint John to meet up with my friend Matt at the New Brunswick Museum's Steinhammer Lab. He's currently doing a stint at the research facility and I couldn't resist, desperately wanting to tour this historic place. This building was the or
  24. Looking into going up to the Shawangunk formation near the Delaware River gap, looking for any fossils but would most like to find a eurypterid. My problem is I can’t find exactly where the fossiliferous parts are. I know it’s a long shot but has anyone hunted this formation before.
  25. 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.
