  1. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found f

    Kasimovian Goniatitid

    I've had this for quite some time, I thought it may have been a gastropod. But I'm now very convinced I have an ammonoid. They are very rare over my way, they didn't like coming into the geologically temporary shallow sea bays that formed. We have many Nautiloids, but not many Goniatitids. I've considered Pennoceras and Mangeroceras. The former is reported from rocks of similar age in Ohio, but the shell ornament has me considering the latter. The growth lines curve back towards the posterior at the dorsal-lateral shoulders. Anyone from the mid-continent (who are swimming in ammono

    I Doubt this is Identifiable, but,

    What do I know? This piece is Pennsylvanian and probably from Brush Creek Limestone. It was found near marine fossils. I have no idea what it is. All help is appreciated.
  4. Hello, found what I think are nautiloids and brachiopods. I found the rock in a stream and I can't say what limestone (maybe brush creek or pine creek), but the area is Glenshaw Formation in northern Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. It's quite difficult for me to get good pictures, let alone good pictures with scale, so I'll tell you that the first two pictures are 2 cm (same organism), the second is 5.5 cm and the largest Nautilus in the last pictures is about 6 cm. All information is appreciated, thanks!

    Pennsylvanian Brachiopod Bi-Valve?

    Howdy! Found this little critter today in Allegheny county, Pennsylvania. It is Pennsylvanian, Glenshaw Formation, probably Brush Creek Limestone. It's a bit different from the ones I'm used to finding and I don't see anything similar in my guides. It is approximately 1.75 cm x 1.25 cm. Even if it can't be ID'd I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me if it's brachiopod or bi-valve. Thanks in advance.

    Carboniferous Bark, Roots, Stems?

    I was rooting around in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, Beaver County yesterday and found some interesting plant fossils. They are Pennsylvanian and out of the Glenshaw Formation. Not sure if they're identifiable or if I would need a microscope to ID. Any help is appreciated.
  7. Howdy! I've been hunting mostly plant fossils in the Pittsburgh area for about two years. This is a sampling of some of my favorite pieces. I hope you enjoy! All are Glenshaw Formation finds. 1. Neuropteris fimbriata 2. Metacoceras 3. Metacoceras 4. Asterophyllites 5. Lepidodendron obovatum 6. Neuropteris Ovata 7. Crenulopteris acadica 8. Brachiopod, Linoproductus? 9.

    Pennsylvanian Fern ID

    Hello! I have a few dozen plant fossils for ID. I'm going to go one at a time, but if you'd like to see them all, please go to the Members Collections section of the site with the link below. There feel free to offer corrections, specifications or confirmations. All are from the Glenshaw Formation. This first fossil looks like Pecopteris arborescens to me. What do you think?

    What is this stuff?

    One of my local spots to fossil hunt has a lot of limestone (I think) with what looks like worms running through it. I see this stuff everywhere and have no idea what it is. The area is definitely Glenshaw Formation and has fossiliferous limestone and shale. Any help is appreciated.
  10. Howdy! Pried what looks like a branch out of some shale today. I was hoping someone could confirm for me that this is petrified wood and possibly ID it. Lots of tree fern leaves and stems in the area. Additionally, the fossil seems unusually heavy. Thanks in advance! Pennsylvanian Glenshaw Formation.
  11. Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules here posting a link. I spent my weekend finally putting my catalog into a proper database, and creating a user interface for it. I used to use Google Sheets, which is pretty great. If I wanted to, I could use them as the source of data, but I decided to create a proper MYSQL database so I can keep relationships across tables, such as the stratigraphy of particular find locations. I have many more improvements coming for it, but it is at least functional right now. Everything from CG-0001 to CG-0161 is from the Glenshaw Formation, Conemaugh Group

    Pennsylvanian Brachiopods

    Howdy! Split some limestone (I think it's Brush Creek) to find dozens of poorly preserved brachiopods and now I need some help IDing. Thanks in advance for any help. @cngodles
  13. I'm chipping away at what I think is brush creek limestone to find what I think is Mooreoceras (first two pics) and Metacoceras. I have no idea what the last fossil is. All help is appreciated, thank you.

    Pennsylvanian Snails and Clams?

    Hello again, I found these tiny specimens today, and I'm not quite sure what they are. If I had to guess, I'd say the spiral shelled creature is Amphiscapha and the more clamish one looks a bit like Kozlowskia without the little side wings. No idea what the last one is. As always, all help is greatly appreciated. Also, sorry about the bad pics, these are quite small specimens.

    Late Pennsylvanian Fish Tooth

    Whatever this fish tooth is, I've never found one before. I had a small sliver showing in a rock and spent over an hour slowly air scribing over it and getting it to this point. I'm hesitant to go much further, as I may break it. I considered Polyacrodus for the shape, but I see none with the pitted pattern that this has. Tired of trying to ID Pennsylvanian fish teeth yet, @connorp? Maybe this is another paver type teeth from a ray, etc. For scale, the length of the tooth in the first photo is 13 mm.

    Five Holes in an Arch

    Found this the other day in what I think is brush creek limestone. The area is Glenshaw Formation, Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian). All help is appreciated.

    Pennsylvanian Marine Fossil?

    Howdy! Chiseled this out of a rock today. I thought it was a coral at first, but not quite sure now. The final picture is a cross section of the inside. Thanks in advance.

    Late Pennsylvanian Stigmaria ?

    I’m thinking this is Stigmaria. Scale bar = 1 cm. Found in the shale below the Brush Creek limestone, a zone with many plants.

    Pentagon shaped piece

    When cleaning up rocks I brought home today, I found this little piece that I didn't originally target. It's pentagon shape makes me believe it's for sure a fossil. I've never found anything like it, so I feel like I'm about to get an education here. Perhaps part of a crinoid? Whatever it is, I don't have the experience, yet. Also noticed the indented hole on the top. Maybe part of it, maybe not. It's way too centered I think to not be part of it. Underside. It is convex with a small raised ridge along the edge. Sideways view of the
  20. I don't expect this one to be easily solvable. I've found nearly two dozen Petalodus teeth over time, so I have a good idea of what the cross section looks like for the tooth material. The white edges with the canals reaching inward. You can't see it will in the photo but there is a calcite grain structure in the center. This piece was oddly shaped and fragile. It's unlike any of the surrounding rock. There are 4 pieces in all, but this one has the best look. The lumps at the bottom edge are raised and textured like the surface of some teeth are. The scale along the bot

    A plant in limestone?

    This one has been sitting in my "interesting but I have no clue" pile for a while. When I found it, I was splitting limestone laying in the stream. I've found that when you split limestone, immediately after splitting you'll get a couple moments of a sharp looking specimen before things start to oxidize. The limestone is a very dark gray, or almost black color. You either see black limestone or white calcite pieces while splitting. I split this particular piece open and right in the middle was a 3-4 cm long, 8 mm wide gold looking rectangle in the middle of the flat broken limeston
  22. Howdy! Just posting some of my finds for ID. Feel free to correct or specify. I can provide dimensions if needed as it's hard to get good pics with a measure of some of these. The first two look like Asterophyllites to me. The third, fourth and fifth, I'd guess Sphenopteroids (the fourth is only 1 cm from top to bottom). The sixth I think is Annularia. The rest I believe are Neuropteroids.

    Pennsylvanian Bone or Just Stone?

    I found this on the bank of a stream near Pittsburgh. It looks to me like bone, but perhaps I'm imagining things. It's rather light and I can tell you the stream is part of the Conemaugh Group, Glenshaw Formation and Pennsylvanian/Carboniferous period. Any help is appreciated. (Last pic has the scale.)

    Antiquatonia maybe? (Brachiopod)

    I think this is the genus Antiquatonia, but I’m looking for some confirmation. I found this back in April, going through my finds and trying to ID. Found in Limestone. Glenshaw Formation (Conemaugh Group)

    Brachiopod, but which one?

    By far the most detailed Brachiopod I’ve found to date. The top impression, which isn’t shown, appeared to have two larger bands running down the center. The small piece in attachment 3 was somewhat of a steinkern or impression below it. Scale line is 1cm. Photos taken with a DSL through a microscope. This came from eroded Limestone.
