  1. Sparrowbush Star

    This partial found yesterday, Sparrowbush NY , Berme Rd. Cheers, G
  2. Full circle

    Hello everyone! Regrettably, it has been a while since I contributed in any significant way on the forum. I’ve found myself busier than expected, and I haven’t been fossiling as much as I’d like to. Anywho, I got out on a hunt today that was special for me. I came to this forum two years ago. I had just been on a field trip with the same geology teacher who’d led my mother and my aunts and uncles on field trips. I had a blast and learned that fossil hunting could actually be done in Maryland by normal people, a fact which now seems so obvious to me. I had been hooked, and now I needed to identify some strange finds. So I came here, and from here I was able to learn many things from many people, and I was propelled into a world I now can hardly see myself without, the paleontological one. Now, two years later, I had the chance to volunteer and help out at the very same field trip with the very same teacher! Though none of the students seem to have gotten hooked quite like I did, they all took home a fossil or two, learned quite a bit, and had a good time. That was a good thing to see. I’ll definitely be volunteering next year! Here’s some pictures I took of myself taking a nostalgic walk through some fossil/geological sites (privacy concerns prevent me from showing any with other people), please excuse my ineptitude at smiling for photos:
  3. Mahantango Formation Sparrowbush NY; Is there enough detail to ID? Looks somewhat like Dalmanites boothi. @piranha Thanks, Gordon Size: it will fit under a dime.
  4. Mahantango ID request

    This from the Mahantango Fm. near Sparrowbush NY, middle Devonian. Thank you. G
  5. Hello to everyone, I was trying to put together a plan for a spring or summer trip hunting fossils. I am particularly interested in the animals of mahantango formation and would like to know if anyone is familiar with some public locations that allow people to hunt for the fossils from that formation, or at least do not prohibit this. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.
  6. Mahantango Identification Help

    I found this yesterday at the Montour Fossil Pit, it unfortunately didn’t want to come out even close to one piece but I’ve been looking and cannot figure out what it is. Maybe someone else can identify easily??
  7. Mahantango Star

    These found yesterday on a fossil hike near Sparrowbush NY. Mahantango Formation, Middle Devonian. ID or literature reference appreciated. Gordon
  8. Crinoid ? good condition ?

    Hey friends I took a little walk at lunchtime today cracking shale along the way. Found this in the split of a piece of the harder gray/black/blue shale that doesn't have many fossils in it .... that I have found, anyway. Is it a crinoid ? from the calyx up ? Very interesting tentacles ... or whatever they're called. Its quite small. The calyx (if that's what it is) is about 5mm diameter. Could this be prepped out ? Looks like it would all be there, but quite delicate and tricky to expose. Thanks for looking
  9. Had another successful trip yesterday to Montour. It’s only my second time going but I really enjoy this place. Figured I’d share my finds with all of you! Partial stem? Clam that was still in the rock, this one actually was nice compared to what I normally find 4 small Pleurodictyum I found, top right is still pretty well encased A really nice shell, possibly oyster?
  10. Possible squid from Montour Fossil Pit

    I found this yesterday in my searches at the Montour fossil pit in Danville pa. I think it is a squid but wouldn’t mind help identifying it. The third picture is the opposite side of the rock. Thanks everyone!
  11. Fossil ID request

    Wondering what these might be not exactly certain. Poking around in an outcrop of the Mahantango. Thanks!
  12. More trilo-bits

    Still just finding bits. Two pygidia in one piece, and a small cephalon. This entire area must have been a shell pile like you see at the beach today. You know, the ones you have to walk around when bare footed. Nothing but shells, bits n' pieces. Cheers.
  13. orthoceras, goniatite and ? ? ? ?

    Hi everyone. Picked these up yesterday in my garden. The orthoceras orthocone are familiar as is the piece of a goniatite (3rd one here so far) but am wondering what the larger piece is ? It is very smooth, and has the same color, texture and symmetry as the goniatites but is much thinner in proportion. Pictured is both sides and a longitudinal view to hopefully show the symmetry and relatively thin profile. Does it look familiar to any of you ? Thanks.
  14. Dipleura Cephalon ?

    Hi folks. I cracked into some very nice bryozoans today. Mostly the fenestella (?) and also see this item that looks like the upturned nose of a dipleura. Do you see the same ? Will post some pics of the bryozoans in the general section. Thanks.
  15. Bryozoans

    Here are a few pics of the bryozoans I cracked into today. Experimenting with the camera, hope they come out OK. (will delete some if necessary) You may see more detail by saving and zooming in ..... not sure. Thanks for looking, Enjoy.
  16. Trilobite thorax ?

    Hello folks ! Tis the season to go digging. fa la la la ................. I haven't posted for a spell, but have checked in on occasion. There is a small area of my yard where grass won't grow, just weeds with bare ground in between. This item was lying on the surface. I've ridden the mower over it for 26 years now and finally looked down at the right moment. Looks like it might be the thorax of a trilobite, but am not sure. Is it recognizable to any of you ? Thanks.
  17. Trilobite thorax ?

    Hi again ! This broke out in a difficult way. Maybe the next one will split in a more desirable fashion. Both of these pieces are from the same chunk of matrix, but are 2 different animals. Almost certain of this because they will not "plug" into one another. Could be the same one tho I guess. Anyway, is there enough of it there to ID it ? (them ? ) Thanks for looking,
  18. Horn Coral

    Hi folks. I cleaned up the horn coral that I posted a pic of earlier. (was wondering if I could find it easily, then realized all I had to do was look for my watch. The missing Timex was much easier to spot. ) Here is pics of it. It is the largest of the many I have found here. Regards,
  19. Fossil rich matrix

    Just a post to show what this garden patch is made of. This is a typical bucket full of chunks turned up by the plow last year. This patch will be finally tilled this year and seeded over. (might come back later, tho) I guess this is called mudstone as it is just a solid glob of fossils. Here are some pics of one of the chunks before, and after splitting. Very busy in there and quite difficult to get it to split where you want, partly due to being exposed (partially) for a year. Working on the new plow, hope to bust up a new patch in the coming week. Regards.
  20. Hi Folks. Anxious for the rain to quit so I can start digging again. Took a walk through the garden patches and picked these up today after several nice "rinsing" rains". I hope to find more of the bryozoan plates, maybe more larger ones. Maybe you can see more than one variety in the attached pics. More to come .... I'm hoping. Kind regards,
  21. Trilobite ID Help

    Hey everyone, found this trilobite today and was wondering if an ID on the species level is possible. Just some background information, this was found at Beltzville Lake in Carbon Co PA. I believe this to be the Devonian Mahantango Formation. Thanks in advance for all the advice!
  22. Nautiloid? Mahantango

    My first guess is straight nautiloid. What do you all think?
  23. Mahantango Bryozoan

    Hi folks. Still searching for a complete trilobite. The "Bit" count is over 80 now .... still hopeful though. Anyway, I cracked open this densely populated plate of bryozoans. Several species were throughout this chunk. I saved this split as it is probably the best (size) example of this particular species that I have found here so far. Kind regards,
  24. Trilobite cephalon and pygidium

    Hi folks. At first glance, I labeled this cephalon an Eldredgeops but it doesn't compare well with other examples in the area behind the eye where the "dimples" are. There is also a sort of "horn" projecting from the upper rear portion of the eye. Just not certain about this one. Could just be deformation ? Then the nice size greenops pygidium. Wow, I'd love to find a complete one this size ! Thanks, Regards.
  25. More from Montour trip

    My 6 year old son and I found lots of fossils just looking through the rubble on the surface yesterday during our first ever trip to the site yesterday. We've identified many of the bivalves we found, and found both crinoid stem cross sections and profiles. We're stumped by a few, however, and would like some help.
