    Trace fossil or nothing?

    Found in Kentucky along AA Highway, Ordovician, Kope formation. I took it because it looked like a weird eyeball thing. I didn't think it was a fossil, just a weird rock, until I cleaned it off and found a bunch of trilobite bits on it. So that had me wondering if it was a trace fossil or if there might be something inside if I chipped away at the shape. Honestly I'm kinda itching to see if there is anything inside it. As it sorta, to my untrained eye, looks like something fell into the water about an eon ago and got covered up. However I don't want to take the Dremel t

    Is this coral or sponge?

    My neice just pulled this out of the creek at my mom's near Ashland Kentucky. I know the area to be Carboniferous. I think it's a coral, but I'm still too much of an amateur to know for sure. Any help would be appreciated by myself and my neice.

    Help with plant fossil ID

    This was found in Eastern Kentucky in the creek behind my house. Carboniferous. I think it might be astertophyllites. Is this correct?

    KY Creek bed

    I am finding many of these at our farm in Versailles KY. I am finding them near a creek and about 1/2 mile from KY River. I am interested to see what ideas people may have for their identity. There are 2 pictured above. Thank you!

    Need help identifying

    Found this fossil in my yard. I am located at the southern edge of the Cincinnati arch in Madison county Kentucky. Most of the rocks are Ordovician Limestone in this area. Can anyone tell me about this fossil?

    Indiana or KY fossils?

    Not an ID question (yet) but does anyone know if/where we can hunt fossils in Indiana or KY? Say off i65 or on the way to Smokey mountains? I’ve heard road cuts are good, but are they legal to hunt? What about quarries? Thanks
  7. RiseOfTheExtinct

    KY trilobite

    Alrighty. Havent been around much as I havent been doing a lot of fossil stuff of late. But, I was going through stuff I piled up on the porch from my KY/OH trip last year and came across this. I honestly dont remember finding it. You would think I would as it is only the second trilobite anything from that trip. Its not marked from OH, so I am presuming I got in KY. What particular bug would this be?
  9. Hi All, hoping you can tell me what these may be from. Found near Hamilton, KY. I have included multiple pictures with a ruler as well. Let me know if you have any questions. Found on a creek.

    Plant ID needed from Kentucky

    Hello everyone, I have a small collection that I picked up on a trip to Kentucky...the area around hazard. I think its the Breathitt formation. Pennsylvanian period. I have been in the process of Identifying them. I think I have a decent lock on some of them, but could use a little help on a few. I should add some more photos of 3 and 4. Let me know if you need anything specific (close up on a certain area, or what have you).

    Ordovician cephalopod

    So, found this interesting piece on my trip this past weekend. It is from KY. Upper Ordivician and could be a couple different formations. I dont know how to tell them apart. But the two main ones I know of are the Fairview and the Bellevue. Obviously, I know its a cephalopod. And I am sure an exact species is not likely. But can anyone give me a genus?

    ID help

    I found this in a Southcentral KY branch about 100 yds down from where a spring was bubbling up out of the ground. Looked this morning for about an hr or so on help IDing it but had no luck. This thing is almost same size as a small can of soup and looks to be perfectly round with no tapering. Anyone in the know?

    Ammonite or uncanny lookalike?

    I took another trip to the creek by my house today since the water had finally gone down. I found a few fossils, some that I could easily identify as Artisia (one of the most-common fossils here), but there were a couple other oddities as well that may or may not be fossils (though I'm not going to be posting most of them). This was the main thing that caught my eye: I know this area isn't a "true marine deposit," but this thing's resemblance to some polished ammonite fossils that my dad got me last Christmas is uncanny. Is it actually an ammonite (or related species) or just a suggestive r
  17. I saw this in a mudslide next to my house and immediately thought Trilobite (though I highly doubt that's what it actually is since I've been told this area isn't a "true marine deposit"). It may actually be a rounded-off Artisia (maybe even Calamites) or just something geological. It's only 2.5cm long. I didn't take pictures of the other side because I didn't see much going on, but let me know if you need one. Help is appreciated as usual!

    More stuff... help!

    Thanks for all the help so far, guys! I feel that I'm slowly getting better at IDing fossils. Here's some new stuff (well, some of it I've had for a while and just never took pics to ID them). A. This one was actually my very first find. I noticed the cylinder-like shape sticking out of the driveway and dug it up. I'm nearly certain that it's a fossilized tree (or tree-like plant), but it doesn't have a distinct texture like the others I've found. Any ideas? It's about 8.5 cm around. - - - B. I found this one a few days ago in the driveway. The texture (most noticeable on the right) re
