  1. Hello - I found some fossils on an afternoon walk at my parents' property in upstate New York today. They were in a creek bed. The land is undeveloped (i.e. no paved roads or electricity). They aren't as exciting as lots of stuff on here. I am not necessarily seeking species ID. I am seeking: - clarification on what geological era they were formed in, if possible - whether it is more likely that these fossils originated locally or were transported by glaciers - is that fossilized nacre (cool!!!)? - is it possible that something more interesting is concealed insi

    Final trip to DSR for the season

    Yesterday my father and I took a trip out to DSR to collect samples for a school display project I'm making. We made some pretty incredible finds, including the largest trilobite I've ever seen with my own eyes. It was pretty nice at the site, the weather wasn't too cold. We immediately found some cool pieces, including 2 separate Echinocaris phyllocarid specimens (I found one, he found another) here's the Echinocaris I found, while just one valve it's got some incredible detail. here's the Echinocaris my dad found, it's the only juvenile one I
  3. Hey everyone, been a little MIA recently. Work/life balance has gotten a little out of whack. Looking forward to sharing some of my 2021 finds soon! anyway I’m revisiting this fossil I found in Western New York roughly 2 years ago. at first when I shared the find I asked some opinions and most said cephalopod. I knew it probably wasn’t that but I didn’t really explore it further. this is from the Wanakah shale of the ludlowville formation in the Hamilton group of WNY. Middle Devonian in age. this “seems” like a spine? I don’t really know.

    Lockport NY Fossil ID

    On a recent trip to Lockport, NY, I found some fossils that I would like help identifying. For those familiar with Lockport, these were found in an outcropping of sedimentary strata along a walkway down stairs from the Pine St. bridge over the Erie Canal locks, leading to the Erie Canal museum. At first glance, I though these might be crinoid stem sections, but on closer examination they don't have any internal structure. I'm not sure if they could be worm tubes, coral, or something else. At 25X magnification, the matrix appears polycrystalline, and I'm guessing it may be some type of sand
  5. so i was wondering were can you exactly find a sea scorpian can a fossil like that be around a lake like ontario? ive really been eger to find one. but i lack a huge amount of paleontalogical experiance. i am also excited to get to know this community.
  6. I am going to go to some real sites in eastern New York tomorrow, but I decided to check the rocks by a pond near my grandparents house where I found a couple trilobites and other Devonian fauna this summer. And I found this really nice Platyceras specimen which it turned out had a brachiopod fossil attached near the bottom, where the opening of the shell would be located. I highly doubt that these two organisms are articulated and fossilized together but I thought it was interesting and worth showing here.
  7. JFollowing the advice of some of the people on the forum here I spent part of yesterday afternoon collecting fossils near Kingston NY on the road cutouts on route 9W I was able to get quite a few decent hash plates consisting of Devonian Brachiopods. Unfortunately, I am not yet familiar enough with the area to identify these to the genus or species level (the only brachiopods I know how to ID are Laptaena because they are my favorites and sadly none of these are them). I also found what I think might be a trilobite tale but I think it could also just as easily be more brachiopods, and one foss

    Fossil Sites Near Kingston NY

    Hello all, I am going to be traveling to Northwestern CT to spend Thanksgiving with my family and this summer I found some Devonian era fossils near there that had been brought from upstate NY. Currently I have no commitments on Friday and my family is not using the car so I was planning to go and check out the sites along route 209 in Kingston NY and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this site and any tips about where to look and just general information about this location. Also, are the road cutouts the best place to go fossil hunting in the area or are there additional near

    A fossil footprint of....what?

    Found in glacial till, slumping sandy bank of stream, top of the ground. Land on western side of Seneca Lake, Schuyler County, New York. What is the best likely candidate for having made this footprint? Matrix is tan sandstone. I didn't know if black and white would help or not. My equipment is limited plus no sunshine right now.

    RT 209 Kingston NY

    So reading through some old posts and seeing @Jeffrey P finds, I decided to get out today and take a trip to the Dave Elliot outcrops. After digging through what Jeff left behind I decided to take a look around that area. I’ll post more as I get them prepped but here’s a few to get started. Largest intact Horn Coral I have ever found.

    Heart shaped cross-section?

    I found this rock on a Lake Ontario beach in New York. I'm primarily curious about the heart-shaped outlines. Thanks!
  23. Have some Mid Devonian brachiopod or bivalve shells that I am not sure about, tried to do some research on my own on what I found. Hoping to get some ID confirmation or help here. Greatly appreciate the help. 7 pictures below: 1. Bivalve Shell? Moscow Formation I believe 2. Brachiopod Shell, never found another like this one? Windom Shale from Livingston Co. Wondering the difference between these two spirifers: 3. 4. 5. Rhipidomella? 6. or is this Rhipidomella?
