    Unknown Fossil ID

    Hello. This is my first post to this forum, so sorry if I get something wrong. I found this rock, among others, in Cooperstown, NY in an exposed hillside. I believe it to be a part of the Moscow Formation. I am completely unsure of what this is. I found many other fossils of things like brachiopods, but this is unlike any of them. There are three of these "things" in total, two next to each other and one at the bottom, not completely there. They're each 1.5 centimeters in length. If someone could ID these for me, I would greatly appreciate it.
  2. Bringing Fossils to Life

    My first trip to Penn Dixie

    I recently went to Penn Dixie for the first time and was not disappointed. Our tour guide first showed us the youngest rocks, then the pyrite. Here I found a tiny juvenile Tornoceras, Bactrites, and out guide showed us that individual septum can be found (see this post). I also found a fragment of a non-pyritized tiny Eldredgeops thorax. I found what HynerpetonHunter says is worm coprolites, and a few tiny brachiopods. Then, we went to the place where phosphate can be found. After that, we stayed a little at the place where fossils from the oldest layer were deposited in the soil, and I found
  3. Earlier in the beginning of the year, I was asked by one of my club members to lead our Syracuse club on a field trip to DSR. The member who asked is a longtime member of the Syracuse club as well as one in Pennsylvania, which is were he resides. The plan was I would lead the Syracuse members and he would bring the Pennsylvania members on the same day. We decided on May 7th. I realize that I am a bit late posting this report, so please forgive me. Been busy. It turned out to be a great day weather wise. I brought my youngest son Devin, even though his plan was to look for snakes. We met

    A tiny orthoconic cephalopod from New York

    Hi everyone! I just got back from a trip to Penn Dixie Fossil Park near Buffalo, New York, and found some pyritized cephalopod fossils. Penn Dixie has rocks form the Givetian of the Devonian from the Hamilton Group. A young ammonoid is easily identified as Tornoceras uniangulare, but the other orthoconic fossils are harder to ID. I am pretty sure the small but more complete one is a Bactrites, because the siphuncle appears to be almost ventral, the distance between the septa, and the slightly slanted suture (after looking at Ludwigia's). The preserved shell is very smooth and couldn't be from

    Port Jervis find

    I found this on a recent trip to the Port Jervis area of New York. The rock that it's embedded in is quite a bit different in color and texture than others in the local area that contained crinoids and brachiopods. I've included photos of 2 other sides of the same rock (photos 2 and 3). Help with identification would be greatly appreciated.

  7. I was hiking with my dad, a little Southwest of Syracuse, and came across a rock. On one side it almost looks like rings from a tree. On another side it has crinoids and some sort of shells. I was wondering if this might be fossilized wood? Thanks!

  9. From the album: Eurypterid Fossils

    When the Eurypterid bearing strata weather and crack conchoidally, two nearly identical fossils are produced when the rock splits through the fossil itself.

    Is this a fossil?

    This is a specimen I found in Ulster County, New York. A non-expert told me it is simply a chunk of concrete and that the flat, brown anomaly in the center is a leaf that got trapped inside it before it hardened. It is specifically the "leaf" which is of interest to me as I find it to somewhat resemble an invertebrate fossil.

  17. The fossil bryozoa colony I found on April 6th turned out to be a pocket of individual colonies. I've posted about this find in the past month. Happy Collecting. Atactotoechus fruticosus Fossil Bryozoa Colony Moscow Formation, Middle Devonian (380 million years) New York State It's very difficult to find complete/near complete colonies of Devonian bryozoans that also look great in a display case. These Atactotoechus fruticosus bryozoan colonies are from a newly (4/2022) discovered pocket of around two dozen individual colonies. This Bryo
  18. 2022 Fossil Collecting Season Our season started out great with a warm 63 degree day here in New York State. We often don't dig on our first collecting trip of the season Its more of a surface collecting trip just to scout out the area and see what winter has exposed for us. I had my geology hammer of course but no mini sledge, chisels, or pry bars. One of my favorite things to find in early spring are colonies of Bryozoa (Atactotoechus frutiosus). You have to collect every little piece of the colony and reassemble them back it home. This will take anywhere from an hour to many hou

    Bottlecap-shaped Paleozoic Fossil

    Can someone please identify this fossil for me? I found it in Broome County, New York and I believe it to date from the Paleozoic era as I found it in association with bivalve fossils which means the fossil in question is likely a marine species and New York was underwater during the Paleozoic.

  22. I have located a good prospective area to fossil hunt, and it is in a state forest in New York State. To ensure that fossil hunting is allowed, I checked the website: https://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/44115.html The second rule states: "Groups of more than 20 people and certain activities such as weddings, filmmaking, research, etc., are required to get a Temporary Revocable Permit (TRP) from the DEC land manager. Please allow a few days for a TRP to be reviewed and approved after submission." Clicking on the "certain activities" link and scrolling through, I fou
  23. On Tuesday this week, myself and some of my family spontaneously decided to get out and drive to some interesting places in New York state to enjoy the day. We visited some beautiful locations like these two waterfalls: On our journey, we ended up around Gilboa, which is the location where one of the earliest known fossil forests was discovered with amazing plant and animal life, some of these fossils are exhibited outside near the town hall. This, being one of the many locations I had wanted to visit for years, was an opportunity I could not pass up, so while driving th
  24. Hello, I've been recently fascinated by large isotelus trilobites. Does anyone on here own one and would like to show and talk about it, I would if I owned one but I don't see that happening anytime soon haha. This is the largest I've seen for sale so far that would've been 8 inches, would be nice to be able to find one but I don't have that luxury.

    Deep Springs Road

    Yesterday I was finally able to take another trip to DSR, ending my nearly 5 months of fossil cabin fever. While it wasn't as ground-breaking as my last trip, where my father and I found an 8 inch Dipleura and a complete Crinoid, this trip was still really fun. We checked out some different areas than usual and it definitely paid off. Starting off with some of the oddities: A gastropod I've never seen or heard of before today, Promatis (patulis?) This is the second largest bivalve I've found at DSR I didn't notice these brachiopods
