  12. Took another trip to the Mahantango (Devonian) over the weekend. Went with @Dean Ruocco While my haul was not too terrific, I did manage to grab some stuff to use as trade pieces / donor pieces. Dean did manage to get some nice trilobites but I will let him post those Brachiopod plate: Normally I would leave this as they are a dime a dozen at my locality but figured I would grab this to give to a friend who is trying to get some material to use in a display cabinet at the college he teaches at. Trilobites: Again not the best stuff but alwa

  14. Since we both had the day off, my daughter and I spent a couple of hours at the Deer Lake site (Schuylkill County PA). It was a beautiful sunny day in the mid 50s! A good start to this years fossiling adventures...
  15. Hey all, Decided to hit the Mahantango today. This spot has historically produced a complete trilobite during my hunting. While my collecting has become more selective as I have to try to keep storage in mind, I did pick up a few examples that I wanted to share. This I believe is a Platyceras? While I am getting more selective on keeping heads, I particularly liked this association of a head and pygidium. I do not believe these are the same specimen as the size and angles would be off but it did make me think of the rough sediments and po

    Asteropygine fossil

    On December 4 my mom and I traveled to the well-known Seven Stars Quarry of Seven Stars, PA a second time (#1 in a post soon!), and our goal was to find more trilobites and cephalopods. This locality is Middle Devonian Mahantango Formation shale, full of a bounty of species. We had found many Dipleura and Greenops on our previous trip, as well as the cephalopods Michelinoceras and Bactrites. Many trilobites that I found were pyritized, the golden Greenops and red Dipleura. But surprisingly, Eldredgeops is absent from the site! Nearly every Mahantango locality includes Eldred
  19. Hello all, yesterday I led a trip to the Montour Fossil Pit with several other Swarthmore students as one last fun thing to do before final season begins and everyone gets consumed by work. We had 5 people in total including myself there and we had quite a good time. Currently I am in the process of receiving images of everyone’s finds and several students want their stuff ID’d so I have a post for that under the proper section to get their questions answered but I thought everyone would enjoy a more general trip-report style post, I will update this post with other people’s finds as they come

    Montour Fossil Pit ID’s

    Hello, as I mentioned in a recent post, today I led a group with several students from my college to the Montour Fossil Pit and Preserve. All of the members found fossils and several of them want to have their fossils ID’d. These images come from one such member who wants to have her fossils ID’d. I think I know what some of them are and there are others I have no ideas about. Here are my guesses: 1.) Some sort of Bivalve probably Cypricardella? 2.) Very Large Strophodonta 3.) Some sort of brachiopods, I d

    Beltzville State Park, PA

    Beltzville State Park is one of those rare parks where collecting is allowed. The adjacent federal land, owned and operated by the Corps of Engineers to operate the dam there, is accessible ONLY WITH A PERMIT. It is a functioning spillway and there is a gun range for the local police, so you and USACE need to make sure you are safe. With that important disclaimer out of the way, here's the good stuff! Beltzville is a very productive Middle Devonian site which includes the PA State Fossil, the trilobite Eldredgeops rana. Although no one in the group found any definite complete

    Mahantango Mystery

    Hello all, My daughter and I were cracking open some Mahantango Formation rocks left over from our fossiling trips last summer, and found this... ? Any ideas what it might be? Found Schuylkill County, Central Pennsylvania Thanks! Tom
  23. Hello everyone! Last summer when going on a trip to PA I stopped by a site where some Mahantango formation material was found, The finds weren't anything too spectacular or plentiful but it was still a nice place to stop by. While there I picked up quite a few concretions just to see if anything is in them, and for a few months they stayed outside to weather and break down a bit. Most of them were completely devoid of anything but one did reveal this interesting little fossil. The whole thing is about 2 cm long and 2mm in width, it has some neat branching to it.
  24. Inspired by a post last week by @I_gotta_rock, I decided to take a bit of an impromptu trek out to Centralia to add some of the famous white fern plates of the Lewellyn formation to my collection. I say impromptu because I was told I needed some pretty good rock climbing gear to be safe at the site, I ordered some pretty nice rock climbing gear too, still decided to go take a peek before everything arrived leading to one heck of an adventure that still has me smiling from ear to ear. We got our stuff ready to head out bright and early when I immediately hit my first snag, last wee

    Unknown something

    Really not sure what I have here, it definitely stands out from the surrounding matrix. I found this chunk at the Rockville Quarry site north of Harrisburg PA. There are some brachiopods in the surrounding matrix.
