  1. Hello! Thank you all for taking the time to read this and (hopefully!) help me identify a very interesting find from Saskatoon! I was on a fossil hunting trip to a local exposure of Pleistocene glacial lake sediments in Saskatoon, and I took home a few samples of it to review later. While looking through one piece (the material is silt but breaks like a rock and is somewhat laminated), I saw this very strange shape. Attached are a few images, some simply in situ, others through a microscope. My apologies if the image quality is not ideal, I do not currently have any better equipment. There ar

    Help with identify trilobite

    Hi, I'm geologist from Poland, and I found trilobite fossil at work. Pygidium length and width are about 1,5 cm. It is from glacial aggregate; from Sweden (maybe Gotland). Fossil is from Cambrian - Silurian limenstones (perhaps Ordovician). I can't identify this kind of trilobite. Pygidium is little different. Pleura furrow is double in half or less length. The right pleura is further in limestone, and is longer 2-3 mm. Last axial ring seems like connect with upper axial ring. Thanks for any help and suggestions. Right pleur
  3. WAStatePugetLobe

    Am I crazy? Fish or fluke??

    My only true "questionable" find whether it is something or not. I love learning about geology, that said after we purchased 3 acres on land which was under glacial units (Puget lobe in WA state, possibly Pleistocene) I dug a hole near what would have been a bank however many thousands of years ago (16,500 years ago would have been glacial outwash). I crack rocks open to see mineral composition. This was found slightly above (maybe 1'-2'), what I would label the alluvial line, but I am very much an amateur when it comes to defining specifics. Google fish fossils and

    Partial Tibia ID

    Found on river gravel bar in Sothern Minnesota. I know its a partial tibia - any ideas on species? Sus maybe? Sediments in the area range from cretaceous to holocoen with a good amount of Wisconsin lobe glacial till. Previously we have found bison, mammoth, and ancient horse...

    Petrified wood in this conglomerate?

    Any ideas as to what this might be? Thinking could be wood remnants, maybe petrified or partially so? Northwest PA, lots of glacial debris in area.

    fossil or not

    Found in a gravel pit on the west side of Moosehead lake, Maine. Likely Devonian (some lower) marine. Conularid congregation ? Concretion ?

    Please help ID this little guy

    Hello folks. I'm back after an extended break. I've found some really cool fossils on my land in southern Missouri, Texas county, USA. Just a few miles south of cabool. A seasonal stream flows through my land exposing some cool finds, not to mention- the heavy rains are washing the topsoil away. From the hundreds of artifacts I've collected, this spot must have been an indigenous settlement. My best guess is that this item was in the hands of those early Americans. I can see why, this is my 2nd most favorite of the collection. Please help me identify what this is. Any help would be greatly app
  8. July 23,2019 Its been so hot working outside all week that today's fossil hunt in 70 degree temps felt cool. It was quiet in the stream (besides the sound of wildlife) when I got there in the AM and stayed that way all day. I didnt want to disturb the scene with me pounding on rocks so I surface collected and covered a large area of the stream. Along the sides of the stream are glacial erratic boulders, stones, and gravel. The tabulate corals (Chonostegites clappi, Favosites winchelli, Favosites sp.) I pictured in this post were found among these glacial rocks. In one gully off the stre
  9. Howdy all! I found this and was hoping to put a name to it. This was found in a drainage ditch in South bend Indiana and is glacial till. Thank you for all you do!

    Marine Fossil ID

    Would you be able to ID this for me. It was found in South Bend Indiana so chances are it isn't from around here but dropped off by a glacier a few years back. Also, I wet it down so the features can be better seen. Any ideas? Thank you.

    Sponge ?

    Found in glacial esker near Bingham, Maine. I think there is a rugose coral, and a crinoid fragment near it, but is one of these a sponge or just unidentifiable pieces of mush ?
  12. Rockwood

    Trilobite cephalon ?

    This was found in an esker near Bingham, Maine. Most of the rocks in the line of glacial scour are mid Devonian and below, marine formations. It looks like the left side of a cephalon, labeled as a librigenea in the morphology section on Wiki .

    Marine fossil

    This was found in South Bend Indiana in a storm water ditch. This was probably dropped off by a friendly glacier from up north. It is 6 cm long and 4 cm wide at the top and 3 cm at the bottom.
  14. Rockwood

    Red algae ?

    Had to bring this one home from the gravel pit just in case. Typical finds are Devonian marine, but volcanics are in the mix too. Any chance it's red algae ?

    Marine fossil ID

    Please help identify the fossil below. It was found in glacial till/drift in South Bend, Indiana. Approximately 8cm across and 4cm wide. Please note the hangnails in the third picture. I've never had a manicure but I am now debating. Thank you for your help and understanding.
  16. I was wondering if someone could help me identify this fossil found over the weekend. It was found in South Bend Indiana. Because it was found in Northern Indiana, the fossil isn't from around here and was probably deposited by a glacier from somewhere up north. It is approximately 12 cm at its longest point and about 4 cm wide. Thank you for your help!
  17. Rockwood


    I found this in a gravel pit at the south east end of Moose Mt. in Maine. The fossils I find there have been exclusively marine invertebrates so I was trying to see perhaps scaphopod traces. The dark edges were hard to explain until I realized that this is what the plants that I find up in far north eastern Maine look like except in isn't flattened. Ya think ? oops end view pending.

    Devonian bivalve

    Found in Maine glacial drift. Most likely Pragian - Emsian aged. Bivalve ? Anything distinctive enough to say more ?
  19. Rockwood


    Found in glacial drift in north western Maine. The rock type is a good match for Tarratine sandstone. Lower Devonian marine delta deposits. I've walked by this fossil so many times it's like an old friend. I had always assumed it to be a bivalve with weathered out pyrite crystals. It was exposed on a small gravel beach as I skied by this morning so I decided to give it a look. I think I have been wrong. What do you think ?
  20. Location: SE Portage County, Central Wisconsin, USA. Geology: South Western advance of Green Bay Glacial Lobe. Former Glacial Lake Oshkosh. Niagara Escarpment Debris. My land. Ordovician onward. Is this a Straparollous? Holopea pyrene? Left some slightly blurry photos in to show cm size. The part in question is about .4 cm deep by 1.5 cm wide. There is also what might be a bivalve to the right of it, and maybe, chain coral. Dunno about what is shown on reverse. Looking for potential ID on all and anything else someone might see
  21. This fossil was dug up fishing recently in Kankakee County, Illinois, where the bedrock is Silurian, but this fossil would have to be Pleistocene. Any help with ID is appreciated. I do not have possession so these are the only photos I have. If you provide an ID, please provide your reasoning. Thanks!

    Maine trace

    Seemed like a good time to get this up. It was found in Little Brassua lake in north western Maine (low water, shallow lake). It is from glacial material that is most likely lower Devonian marine sediments.

    Fossilized hole

    Is this a burrow ? I'm sort of leaning toward it being a fluid or gas venting feature myself. It was found on the shore of Moosehead Lake just south of where the fossiliferous, upper Silurian, Forks turbidite crosses it. The breaks are likely caused by the thrust of ice as it forms and expands against the shoreline in that spot. Car sized boulders can be displaced several feet by the force. The blue line indicates roughly the position of the hole. It passes all the way through, with a slight bend and constriction in the center.
  24. Rockwood

    Devonian shell

    Another shoreline glacial find. Most likely lower Devonian marine delta related. The first shot shows part with scale, and inverted counterpart to the left. The last shot is of the under side of the fractured section in the photo before it.
  25. Rockwood

    Pygidium +

    The low angle of sunlight on lakeshore glacial material made this pygidium an easy find, but what is the other thing with it ? The likely age is Pragian- Emsian. One more.
