  1. A couple weeks ago during a collecting trip down to the Cincinnati area, I spent half a day collecting at the big roadcut near Maysville, KY. It's really hard to describe just how big this roadcut is. Pictures don't do it justice, but here's one anyways. For reference, the pine trees are probably 3 meters tall or so. I spent all my time collecting in the Fairview Formation. In the picture above, the contact between the Fairview and the underlying Kope Formation occurs near the first bench. The contact with the overlying Bellevue Limestone is just above the third bench.

    Fossil ID Bluegrass Region Kentucky

    Gone through my fossil collection and have these fossils that not sure what they are they where all found in Bluegrass region of Kentucky. I think the image 1501 is a type of ruquose coral the fossil matix is 1/4 calcite. The other two fossil matrix is limestone.

    Newbie request for identification

    I appreciate any guidance-my interest is for a general definition, as an art major, to integrate it in my work. I'm sure it's obvious to y'all, thank you for having this forum available.
  4. Hi Everyone, I am completely new to identification, but I found this large tooth while walking along a creek today in the northern part of Estill County, Kentucky and I am hoping someone might be able to help me identify it.

    Possible insect wing?

    Hey guys! I apologize in advance as I couldn’t get any measurements. I was packing to move and I have it in a box on a truck on the way to the new house. I found this specimen in the Appalachian coal fields of Eastern Kentucky. At first glance I assumed it was a leaf but as I looked closer it looks astonishingly like a tiny insect wing. The rock contains additional fossils and I excavated the layer this piece came from and found many lepidodendron and calamite fragments. The fossils I have found in this layer are extremely well preserved and extremely fragile so I tried my best to get this pie
  6. Hey guys, this is my first post to this forum and I’m excited to be here. I am an amateur but I have come a long way when it comes to fossil hunting and I have a pretty large collection of quality fossils. I found this piece in the Appalachian coal fields of Eastern Kentucky, mixed in with other fossils from the Pennsylvanian. To me it appears to be some sort of invertebrate fossil but it is preserved in a type of sandstone and as far as I could guess I would imagine that an earthworm-like specimen would be too delicate to be preserved to this detail. It is definitely weathered by the rain and
  7. Visiting family in Kentucky and went to the Maysville Cut for 2 hours yesterday. Found some neat things. I wanted to find a trilobite, but no real luck. I think I may have found a piece of one.

    Rugose Coral from Kentucky

    I purchased this from someone in Kentucky. It was labeled Rugose Coral fossil with no other information. Does anyone know what type of Rugose it is?
  9. Hi Everyone, In the latter half of last month I took a two week trip to Kentucky and Tennessee. My sister, her husband, two of her adult children, and my parents all live in the Elizabethtown/Louisville area and I was able to spend some quality time with them. Fossil collecting was also part of my agenda. Herb, my primary fossil collecting partner in Kentucky and I had a three day trip down to Tennessee planned. Before I went on that expedition, I was out with my brother-in-law driving around central Kentucky. He dropped me off for 20 minutes at the Upper Mississippian site at Wax where

    Kope Formation Trilobite ID

    I found this very fragmentary trilobite cephalon in the Upper Ordovician Kope Formation in Kentucky that I am unsure of. Not much to go on, but I was hoping someone here might recognize it. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Ordovician donut from Maysville

    I found this strange specimen in the Upper Ordovician Fairview Formation outside of Maysville, KY. The thing attached to the donut looks like it could be a crinoid holdfast, but if so I can't recall having seen a similar one from the Cincinnatian. But what might the donut be? A large trace fossil? A strange sedimentary structure? I really have no idea, I've never seen anything similar before.

    REMPC-BR0005

    From the album: Prae's Collection (REMPC)

    REMPC BR0005 Brachiopod - Platystrophia sp. Ordovician Mount Aurburn Formation Maysville, Kentucky, United States
  14. Found this yesterday in Mason County, Kentucky in the general vicinity of Maysville where Ordovician limestone (Bellevue Formation?) is exposed in the roadcuts. Not an expert but hunted enough to immediately appreciate the rarity of the find. After some preliminary research and a tentative identification (Carneyella ulrichi) I seek an expert review and confirmation/correction. These animals seem to be sufficiently rare that a firm ID shouldn't be left up to an avowed un-expert ... who knows little about the differentiating characteristics of edrioasteroids (or even echinoderms) to do more t

    Crinoid? Cephalopod? Other marine life?

    Hello all, and thanks for being here! I am looking for an ID on these fossils for my own gratification! My focus is in archaeology, so I come across fossils often during surface collection adventures! A little about the location: These were found in Nancy, Kentucky, USA on a partially man made flood-control lake called Lake Cumberland (Cumberland river basin/Cumberland plateau). The banks are rich with small to medium chert concretions, fossiliferous sedimentary stones, and small to medium iron inclusions. Preservation of these specimens are, generally, fair to good.
  16. Hello everyone! We recently went on an impromptu rock/fossil hunt in Warren Co., Kentucky. We spent some time at a creek and found some worn/broken geode material, lots of crinoids, one small horn coral, and this little guy. My first thought was horn coral based on the overall appearance and my limited knowledge, but it's obviously flatter than a horn coral and comprised of a translucent-ish material. I wasn't sure if a horn coral could be flattened by geologic processes, but it seemed possible. By chance, I stumbled across a reference to Platyceras here on the forum and suddenly t
  17. I spent Memorial Day morning fossil hunting the Carboniferous in the Salem Limestone (Formation) of Central Kentucky. Hunting the Salem at this particular road cut is a bit of a gamble. There are things to be found here, but good weather, timing, and a bit of luck are needed to have a chance at coming across anything worth writing home about. I have found almost complete Conulariids here, but also watched them crumble in my hands. I didn't bring home bucket loads of fossils this time out, but still, it was a good day. The sun on my face, flowers to smell, and plenty of rocks to break.
  18. As a late Father's Day gift and early Birthday present (I turn 39 tomorrow ) I spent 4 hours Saturday morning in the Glen Dean Limestone. A Carboniferous (Mississippian) formation. As usual, I was channeling my inner mountain goat and scrambling around a Central Kentucky roadcut. As I pulled up to the road cut my heart sank. Grass had grown on the exposure. If memory serves, the last time I was here was in the middle of September of last year and the exposure was bare. Most finds are small so I was worried that I wouldn't be able to find much. Luckily my fear and apprehension was

    Coral/Sponge?

    I was cleaning up my "fossil prep room" and found this specimen I meant to ask about months ago. It was found at the base of a Kentucky road cut that had Kope Formation. It is paper thin and actually popped off of the matrix. I then glued it back on. It seemed to look better associated with the trilobit. I am hoping to ID this as specific as possible since it is quite different from what I have found before. THANKS!!!! Mike

    Any ideas on this fragment from the Silurian Bisher Fm. Kentucky? Measures 1 cm.

    Wayne's Carboniferous

    When it comes to fossils, I am a generalist by nature. I haven't met a fossil that I didn't like! However, in an attempt to narrow my focus a bit, I have decided to take a cue from Adam ( @Tidgy's Dad ) and start this thread. I hope to showcase some of my collection, but more importantly have a central place to post IDed specimens, information I have found regarding them, and/or ask for help with IDs. Hopefully other's will get enjoyment from seeing the specimens and potentially learn a thing or two. So come along on my journey through the Carboniferous! If you haven't had the plea

    Fossil Identifications

    Thanks in advance. This is one of a group of presumptive fossils found in my daughters' backyard by me and my granddaughters'. It appears to be in a St Louis Limestone formation in Bronston near Somerset Kentucky.
  23. Haven't posted here in forever, but can anyone tell me what I've found here? It initially struck me as a plant, but at the same time I can sort of make out what resemble a crayfish head (complete with antennae) and claw. Neat to look at, whatever it is. About 6cm long. Pikeville Formation, eastern KY

    Tube worms maybe?

    Found in a small void deep in red clay and limestone, no idea what it is. Tube worms? Coprolite? Psuedofossil? Any help is greatly appreciated

    Fossil Identifications

    Thanks beforehand. My young granddaughters (8 and 5 yo) have went fossil hunting in their backyard around Lake Cumberland in Kentucky and as I am not experienced in identification and cleaning techniques I appreciate all help given to identify several examples of what we collected.
