    Adam's Early / Lower Devonian

    The Devonian period is known as "The Age of Fish", but could also be known as "The Age of Brachiopods." In the Early / Lower Devonian, brachiopods reached the height of their diversity towards its end in the Emsian. We see the ancestral groups occurring, lingulids, craniids, orthids, protorthids, pentamerids, rhynchonellids and strophomenids, as well as the later successful groups we have seen before such as atrypids, athyrids and orthotetids, plus the rise of spiriferids, spiriferinids and productids and the beginning of the terebratulids. By the end of the Devonian , several of these g

    Komp’s Fossil Preps

    Hi all, my good friend @Nautiloidand I have been doing some collecting at a site in the Trenton Group recently and we have been finding what we believe to be Gravicalymene magnotuberculata. The matrix is soft and quite easy to prep, which was a nice surprise. This one was found by my father @Penguin Fiasco Here it was before preparation Bonus headless Triarthrus Beckie appears! All done, now time to clean off the abrasive powder! Here it is after preparation, I am pretty happy with the result. Please excuse the

    Hi all, I found what I presume to be an Isotelus in the Trenton Group of NY yesterday. I posted the trilobite online and someone was saying that it is not an Isotelus based on how the trilobite looks Micropygous, and that they think it is a Proetid (even though the cephalon looks like an Isotelus’?) The trilobite I found looks to be in the Meraspis stage. Can anyone help clarify if this is an Isotelus, or what it could be if it isn’t? Here are some photos of the trilobite… Photo taken with my digital microscope Pygidium
  4. Hello everyone, This weekend on Sunday my family and I made a short trip out to Central NY to do some fossil hunting. I was planning on doing this on my actual birthday which was on Monday but due to the weather we decided to do it earlier. As a result the trip ended up being more spontaneous, shorter than expected but still very enjoyable. The first stop was DSR, this was my second time at the quarry and although I didn't get as diverse of a selection of fossils this time (probably just being more picky), I got some nice specimens of a few new species as well as ones I already had.

    Uncovered this artifact while clearing stumps from one of the hillside in my back yard. The site is close to Long Island Sound but is +/- 150' above sea level. The artifact seems to resemble the head of a serpent or an aquatic animal. The photos illustrate what might be an eye socket, the crown of a head, a small fang and a nostril. Would appreciate any and all comments that might help identify the item.

    Hey all, new here so sorry if this isn’t the way to do this…is anyone able to help identify what animal this may have come from. It was found on a small portion of beach below a cliff with a lot of erosion in WNY south of Buffalo. Not sure if it came from soil or lake…either way it seems on the heavier side and I’m thinking it might be a phalange from a deer figured I’d see if anyone could help confirm or come up with a different ID
  9. Paula (Seneca20) found this complete and near perfect Ammonoid (Manticoceras) during our hike/fossil hunt on Sunday 8/21/2022. She goes "oh hey, there's this thing" It was the find of the day, of course I'm not sure if I should clean it up or leave as is. I think it looks kinda cool half buried in a nodule. The shell of the cephalopod is in great condition. Something that rarely happens in this formation. Good job Paula!
  10. I found this Upper Devonian nodule containing bones years ago. Of course I don't find too many Devonian vertebrate fossils here in NY so I squirreled it away to get it properly prepared and IDed someday. After doing some recent rearranging of my collection, I decided to bring this fossil out into the light. What I know - #1. Its a vertebrate fossil for sure and it looks to me to be cranium elements. #2. The size is 5.5" x 5.5". #3. It was found in the Cashaqua shale nodule layer. I also find straight and coiled shelled cephalopods, wood, and tiny bivalves in this unit.
  11. I just finished cleaning this Heliophyllum confluens (Colonial Rugose Coral) Middle Devonian, Hamilton Group, Jaycox Member. Western New York. 6" x 4" x 4.5" and its covered in epibionts. Most I know - 1. Brachiopod (Petrocrania hamiltoniae) 2. Bryozoa (Lichenalia stellata) 3. Crinoid Holdfast 4. Bryozoa? Coral?_________? 5. Coral (Pleurodictyum) 6. Crinoid Holdfast? Bryozoa (Fenestrate) Holdfast? Any help with numbers 4. and 6. is appreciated.

    Dipleura dekayi

    Curled Dipleura dekayi sitting on a slab with an enrolled Eldredgeops rana. Apparently, the Eldredgeops was added to this Dipleura to create this "association" piece.
  13. I live in jersey near Philadelphia and I was hoping to find eurypterid fossils but the only stop I can find is Lang’s quarry which is over 5 hours away and cost a ton to hunt. I am wonder if anyone has found evidence of eurypterids in Pennsylvania , Maryland, or southern New York. If you have any pictures I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Noel.

  15. Good evening folks. I am working on curating my middle Devonian collection using the field guide book by K.A. Wilson. It is very helpful and has saved me tons of time, highly recommend. I am posting below a few of the fossils that I could not quite figure out using the book and was hoping for help. A few of these may be unsolved repeats from past posts. I realize this may be a lot so very much appreciated in advance. 1. Locality Livingston County Two pieces of the same broken fossil 2. Deep Springs 3. Deep Springs
