    ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg

    Crinoids, packstone, brachyzoans?

    Found these while having a stroll on the beach on the southwestern tip of lake Michigan, in Illinois just south of the Wisconsin border. I am about as novice as you can get, and found this site while trying to figure out what these are... I'm pretty confident that the rings are crinoid stems, unsure about everything else. Hope the pictures are good enough, hard to photograph small things with a phone camera. Mostly curious about the spike shape on this one The smaller one here is the backside of the one above I don't know if these two are fossils, they look
  3. Hi everyone! Last saturday we went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to Hotton in the Belgian Ardennes. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/667 There were 2 different locations planned for the day, the first was the "Carrière de Marenne" quarry in Hotton were we spent most of the day. It was my first time at this location, so I didn't have very high expectations but we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the finds which made for a very productive and succesfull trip! Unfortunately like so often I forgot to make pictures inside th

  5. Another successful creek walk yesterday and found this huge beauty. I think it may be in the Pachyporidae family, but not sure what species or if it's something else. From what I understand, in my region (Finger Lakes, NY) they are found to the north in Onondaga limestone and were brought south by the glaciers. I never thought I would find anything like this here. Glacial deposits are so cool. The matrix has a pink, blue, gray hue in natural light and I've seen quite a bit of it in recent days.
  6. Hi everyone! Around 2 months ago on the 16th of october 2021 I went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to the stone quarry of Lompret in Belgium. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/654 The rocks in this quarry are Devonian in age and date back to the Frasnian (382.7 million years ago to 372.2 million years ago) with the finds mostly being from both the Neuville and Matagne Formations. According to Tom our excursion leader this quarry exists out of what used to be coral reefs and islands that formed around atolls. The fossils that you can find in this quar
  7. A few old collection specimens of Devon coral that I've acquired over the years. In scarce supply now, the south Devonshire area around Torquay and Teignmouth was once (mainly 19th and early 20th c) the centre of an ornamental "marble" industry. Much of it went into high class interiors (floors, pillars etc.) but there was a large usage of small pieces for ornamental objects (desk furniture, trinket boxes) and also as inlay pieces for magnificent tables. Fossil specimens were also specifically sold as such. It's not a true marble but a range of well compressed, heated and mineralise

  9. A few days ago after searching our creek for fossil specimens I came across this sticking out of the leaves. It turned out to be larger than I expected, but it was getting dark so without a second thought I hastily yanked it from the ground and ran home with it. I cleaned it up a bit - all smug and pleased with my find. Then that evening I had the good fortune to read Robert Boessenecker’s excellent post about field notes. I’ve always thought fossils were awesome, and have collected them casually since I was little. I never put any real effort into learning more
  10. I’ve got quite a handful of Devonian fossils that I’ve found this past week on the shore of Seneca lake in Upstate NY. This post is more of a confirmation of my original thoughts and a hope for a more definitive and exact identification of some of these finds. Thanks for any help in advance! 1– horn coral

    Favosites from Hungry Hollow

    Hi there! I'm currently writing labels for my Devonian fossils, and I was wondering if someone out there can identify the following Favosites coral down to species? It's from the South Pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario, Canada, and it's mid-Devonian in age. Thanks so much! Monica Top: Bottom:

    Arkona 07/06/2019

    As usual I had the urge to go fossil hunting this weekend so I decided to take a trip to Arkona and have a relaxing day of surface collecting. It was calling for rain all week but turned out to be a nice day (aside from the brutal heat and swarming deer flies). Things were looking a little different this year. Spring hit this roadway to one of the pits pretty hard. Critters everywhere so you have to watch your step. There were loads of tiny toads that must have just grown up and left the water. Also found this poor strawberry plant struggli

    Baby, It's Cold Outside

    The hubbub of the holidays is over. The cold, crisp air has descended here in the Mid-Atlantic. The ground is frozen, but I was craving sunshine and the hunt. With blue skies today and the promise of snow tomorrow, I headed to the one place I was reasonably certain wouldn't be completely frozen -- the Delaware Bay. After all, we put salt on the roads here to keep them from freezing. How cold is it this week? Cold enough to freeze salt water! Here and there, exposed spots dotted the beach and the highest part of the bank, above the high tide line, was still exposed. There wer

    Explored several new spots

    I went out and checked a few new to me roadside spots. This first posting is all Surilian - Wills Creek formation in Altoona PA. Bivalves, ostracodes, Spirals (Turnitellia?), Favosites corals in 3 different shapes. The only prep I did was a quick rinse. I'm looking forward to prepping these out and tomorrow I'll post a few from the other spot that I visited

    Hungry Hollow IDs

    After Monica's recent post looking for HH IDs I'm prompted to solve a couple uncertainties of my own from that spot, if anyone can help me... This coral was labeled 'Favosites (poss. alpenensis)'... Can anyone confirm or suggest a better fit? I don't know what all the species of Favosites are at that place but I know there are more than one. Second, I know there are 2 types of Mucrospirifer, one being more elongated than the other. I believe I have some of both here but some seem ambiguous. Are there any surefire distinguishing features of either species other than the (
  19. Hi this is Matt again I have 3 favosites fossils I have found in the creek I wanted to show everyone here are 3 photos
  20. Here are some of my finds. The first two fossils were taken from a cornfield and I believe the third was found in a creek running through that same field. Most of the rocks and fossils I collect come from cornfields, a lot of them have the farm equipment scars to prove it. Anyway, let me know what you think, the underside of that first one has always intrigued me. Thanks, Matt #1 #2 #3

    From the album: Penn_Dixie_Quarry_Blasdell_New_York

    One of the park guides explained that this is a species of coral known as Favosites. It is commonly mistaken for fish scales, and it's nickname is the honeycomb coral. This was the only piece I found that day.

    Jurassic Trilobite!

    April fools! Most of you wouldn't click this thread and check out my cool new Devonian coral so I lied. I know whats the big deal? Its just a coral! Its not like its a Trilobite, Ammonite, or Dinosaur fossil. I have collected fossils for many years and I have a very nice Devonian, Favosites coral collection from New York State that I have assembled. I have found complete specimens tumbled in a stream, mushroom shaped, attached to other corals, the size of a button, and some that weigh over 70 pounds. This specimen I found the day before Easter is the best specimen in my collection to date.
