    no idea what so ever

    I have no idea. Suggestions have been: Crinoid Caylx or ‘gumdrop’ bryozoan starting to grow a branch. Probably growing on a brachiopod or something. Sorry forgot....found at Devonian, Penn Dixie, Hamburg, NY.

    Fossil hunting near Hamburg Germany?

    My son is moving to Hamburg Germany and I was wondering if there were any sites where he can hunt for fossils? He likes fish fossils, but I am hoping he might find his father a few nice shark teeth. Are there fees and permits required? Can he send fossils out of the country? Any fossil shops in or near Hamburg?

    Here’s some fossils I’m working on from 18 mile creek in Hamburg,NY. They’re in pretty dense hard silica shale. Any ideas on identifying them?

    Penn Dixie stuff

    Hello everyone! I'm here once again to ask for some identification help as I continue to work on my fossil area display. Today I have a few items from Penn Dixie (Hamburg, NY, mid-Devonian) for you to look at. But before I show the photos, I was wondering about the formation that we find fossils in at Penn Dixie - is it all Moscow Formation? Okay, now on to the photos... Specimen #1: A Platyceras gastropod, but I'm not sure of the species: Specimen #2: A horn coral on the same rock as the Platyceras - is it Stereolasma rectum or Amplexiph
  5. It's taken me a while to post this, but my boyfriend and I took another trip to Penn Dixie on the Fourth of July! For those who have been to Penn Dixie I'm sure you know it's impossible even for a total newbie to leave empty handed. I didn't get anything super amazing like some of the full trilos th at I've seen other people post, but I did get what I went in hoping to find - gastropods!!! I THOUGHT that I found 2 - the large one and the good spiral one. But when I started washing the mud off them last night I discovered two others on the other side of some chunks that we had kept for their tr

  9. Hello everyone! I'm sorry for the late reply in posting this, but I was busy on the weekend with a course I'm taking, so it took me a few days to get my act together. On Friday, October 12th, 2018, a bunch of TFF members met up at Penn Dixie Fossil Park in Hamburg, New York in order to do some group fossil-hunting for mid-Devonian trilobites and other critters. The members in the pictures that follow are Malcolm @Malcolmt (he's wearing the beige bucket hat), Greg @Greg.Wood (he's in the striped shirt), Ken @digit (he's in the red jacket), Ken's wife Tammy (she's in the

    Penn Dixie Annual Fundraiser

    Hello to all my TFF friends. I'm sorry I haven't been as regular a fixture on the site as I typically am. I am stretched very thin as of late with work. My collecting has been limited to fossils from the mailbox formation. As most of you are aware, in addition to being a teacher and theater professional, I am also one of the lead educators at the Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Reserve in Hamburg, NY. For most fossil enthusiasts, PD represents a sometimes annual pilgrimage to one of the hottest fossil locations in the United States. There I have had the distinct pleasure of meeti

    The Perfect Bug

    Some of my collecting friends often ask why do you keep going back to Penn Dixie its really not a place for hard core collectors. I have no clue how many times I have been to Penn over the years but I never get tired of going. If someone says lets go to Penn Dixie.. my answer is "I'm In". Penn is a spot to go to meet great people who actually get it when it comes to this crazy passion of ours. If you have never been to Penn figure out whats stopping you from going .........and get there.....( tell me or Devonian Digger you are going and we will try to get there as well)
  12. Hello there! I visited @Malcolmt yesterday and he was nice enough to clean up some of my stuff from Penn Dixie (mid-Devonian), including the specimen below. I'm not exactly sure what it is, so I was hoping that someone out there will be able to help me with identifying this little guy, which I think is either a gastropod or a ammonoid - what do you think? These are all pictures of the same specimen, just from different angles. And it's pretty small - only 5mm across at its widest point. Maybe @DevonianDigger can help? Thanks for your help! M

    © 2018 by Jay A. Wollin

  14. Hello, all! So I am cleaning out my workshop to make room for a lot of new material coming in and to prepare for the upcoming season. I have wayyyyyy too much Penn Dixie material. I have, at this point, committed all of my complete bugs away. But I still have quite literally, TONS, of other material. What I am offering is Edlredgeops rana partials, this includes entire prepped bugs that are missing cephalons, stand alone cephalons, pygidiums, large but broken cephalons, half bugs, etc. (Please note, I am not offering any of these as complete. There is the real chance that some of t

    8/5/2017 @ Penn Dixie

    Had a great time at the site today with @minnbuckeye, @ischua and special guest, @fossilcrazy. Things being what they are this season with lots of blank benches, we decided to go nuts on a section of the site that had yet to be worked. I had a great day on Thursday prospecting a new exposure of the Smokes Creek trilobite bed, found many impressive bugs. Figured today would be the perfect day to go nuts on it. A decent number of bugs were found for the day considering the relatively small square footage we covered. Many sentences were started with the words, "If @Kanewere here..."
  17. Today a visitor found what marks the third Pseudodechenella rowi found at Penn Dixie this season. It's a gorgeous example to boot, only missing a chunk of the lateral border on the cephalon and a bit of the genal spine. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't very jealous that I haven't been one of the three people to have found one. What's more impressive is that this guy came out of the piles we've been going over since May and it took this long to find!

    Great Groupon deals for Penn Dixie

    @Fossildude19, please let me know if this is inappropriate to share on the forum. I'm not trying to advertise as an employee of the site, but rather share a good deal with anyone who might be interested in visiting or taking out a membership. As a fossil hunter, I don't typically think to check Groupon for fossil parks, so I figured I would share it for anyone who might be thinking about checking it out as it saves some decent money. https://www.groupon.com/deals/penn-dixie-2
  19. I'm excited to share that I have officially joined the staff at the renowned Penn Dixie site. I've managed to turn my hobby, which has been greatly furthered by knowledge gained from the supportive and generous members of TFF, into a job! I am now an educator at the site and will be travelling to regional schools, museums and events to share the wonders of the site with the general public in addition to working at the site during the spring, summer, and fall! So a giant "thank you!" to all the TFF members who have helped me along in my journey thus far! I look forward to seeing many of you thi

    Penn Dixie is once again OPEN

    The Penn Dixie site has now reopened for members (the regular season has ended and the gates are closed, but members can still sign the log online and come in to dig!) The site was directly in the smoke plume from the large fire last week, but air quality has returned to safe levels and the ash has been removed from the site. As such, members are welcome to once again come hunt while the weather is still beautiful! Happy digging!
  21. DevonianDigger

    Penn Dixie CLOSED until further notice

    Due to the gigantic fire in Lackawana at the former Bethlehem Steel factory, the site has had to close until further notice due to air quality issues. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/11/09/massive-fire-at-former-ny-steel-mill-sparked-by-hot-light-bulb.html Hope anyone in the area is okay, we're 10 miles away and have been watching the smoke all day.
