  9. Penn Dixie Round 1

    This year I pulled the trigger on heading to Penn Dixie for the Dig With the Experts weekend! Definitely would highly recommend . I drove up from Boston to the Buffalo area on Thursday and spent the day Friday digging with @Malcolmt and @JamesAndTheFossilPeach. It was a blast! Thanks again guys for giving me a lay of the land. Credit to @JamesAndTheFossilPeach for the find of the day with a giant Eldredgeops (pic below). Saturday and Sunday were spent looking for trilobites in the roped off Dig With the Experts section of excavated shale with some success. Monday I drove back to Boston, and stopped to stretch my legs in Glenerie, NY to walk a stretch of road looking for Devonian brachiopods and gastropods. Got a couple! All in all, a great trip... although I'm nice and sore . Here are my takeaways from the weekend. I tried to get a bit of the entire Penn Dixie Ecosystem keeping at least one of everything and as many trilobites as I could find. I wish I took more pictures Saturday and Sunday, but I was too busy splitting shale . Cheers, Barret

  15. I found this in a rock wall about 5 feet above lake level. The face of this finding was obviously different than the surrounding shale. I noticed the radial array of "cells" and ones that could be seen end-on. The structure was about 10+ inches in diameter. I was able to gently get it out of the wall (with some real effort) but it split in half upon removal. What is this?
  16. Silurian trilobite?

    My daughter found this on our trip last Monday. She has an eye for trilobites and we thought that's what it was. After looking at it closer today, I'm wondering if it is actually crinoid? It's the only one we found like it... Any and all feedback appreciated! Thanks in advance.
  17. Silurian ID help

    Hey guys!!! We took a trip to the Buffalo area for a night and drove to a Silurian age spot that I've never been to before, prior to heading back... So I know I have a trilo-butt near the circled area, but I'm wondering the the circled fossil is trilo as well? Figuring shell but wanted to check. I know the second picture isn't that clear but the larger black area I thought someone may recognize as something? Probably a long shot... lol It just looks a bit different from what I have seen so far. Thanks in advance!
  18. When I was cleaning up scraps of shale from my prep floor today, I saw parts of trilobites on some of the pieces of shale. The rock was collected recently and a complete Eldredgeops was removed. This shale is Middle Devonian in age and is very hard (almost like limestone). Trilobites in this layer are well preserved and 3D. The trilo parts I found were the cephalon of a small Pseudodechenella, pygidium of a Greenops, and the eye of a Dipleura. I spotted the Dipleura as just a small piece of exoskeleton in the side of the shale. I knew it was a piece of Dipleura shell, and I knew it was just a piece, but I was curious. The fossil was lying on a crack in the shale that I easily split open with a small chisel. When the eye popped out of the matrix I thought it was pretty funny and said to my girlfriend "well i'll be darned".
  19. This collecting trip was more of a scouting expedition than an actual dig. After the snow and ice have melted, its fun to get out and see whats newly exposed/uncovered. Today we found the usual cast of characters like horn corals, tabulate corals, brachiopods, gastropods, pelecypods, and trilobites. I was mad at myself for not having faith in a trilobite fossil that I found on this trip. It was barely visible in the rock I found it in and I thought it would be incomplete just on how it looked. I started to remove the matrix (hard limey shale) with a hammer and small chisel. The bug popped out of the rock complete and fell on the floor. The trilobite landed on its glabella and some of its shell broke off. I think I found all the pieces but I should have been more careful. After all these years of collecting I should know better. I promised myself to make up for it and that I would find a killer bug this season with some new sites that I have lined up Thanks and Happy Collecting mikeymig
  20. Anomaly from Penn Dixie

    Came across something interesting today while excavating the Bay View Coral bed at the site. First thought was a hypostome from a Dipleura dekayi. It is not. There are symmetrical sutures in it, which are pretty interesting. Wondering if anyone has some literature on Devonian fishes from the Hamilton. The only thing I can think of is placoderm. It's about 1mm thick and 4-5cm across. Sorry for the poor photo, I took it in situ with my phone.
  21. Syracuse New York area?

    Have to come to Syracuse for family emergency. Hoping to get a little free time once things settle and would love to see what fossils might be found in area. Thanks for help Steve Friend (visiting from Alaska)
  22. Hey friends, Hope you're all well. I recently went to New York for the first time and throughly enjoyed what the city had to offer, however one of the stand out days was definitely a trip to the American Museum of Natural History. I won't bombard you with thousands of picture but I will post a few of my favourites Also a question, annoyingly I was on limited time and wasn't able to make the last slot of the "Meet T-Rex: The Ultimate Predator", has anybody done the tour and is it worth doing? I was gutted I missed it and would like to hear what others thought of it. I'm sure most of you know the I.Ds but i'll list a few of them just incase. So here's a few pics from my journey This specimen is AMNH 5027 and it was excavated in 1908 by Barnum Brown in Montana. Interestingly enough this specimen also provided the first complete skull of Tyrannosaurus rex. Not an alien, a pano that went a little wrong, it's hard to fit these guys in.
  23. Hey everyone! I am about to be on a business trip for the next week so I made sure to try out a new location this past weekend. I went fossil hunting on Saturday and Sunday. Both days! I doubt I’ll get to do a double header like that for a while. Once summer hits I’ll have to figure out a way to fit in all these outdoor activities lol. I went to DSR to play for a little on Saturday morning. I only had until 11:30am to hunt, I had to help wedding planning with the fiancé. I only stayed at DSR for a little and gave myself enough time to go to Briggs rd for a first time hunt. Ive never been to Briggs rd but I’ve seen some trips posted by Dave @Darktooth and the location was very close to DSR. It was a site I was told to visit if I wanted to find Eldredgeops. Greenops are the more common trilobite at DSR and Eldredgeops is the more common trilobite at Briggs rd. I must say...very interesting site. Not very “pretty” as far as roadside quarries go, but she’s a beauty I tell ya haha. I’ll follow with pictures of Saturday’s DSR and Briggs rd finds after the text. I took my nephew out fossil hunting on Sunday cause he’s been pretty aware of my activities lately lol. I took him, my sister and brother in law to DSR and Briggs rd on Sunday. I went to the diamond mine last year with my nephew and we didn’t do so hot so I needed him to take home something this time! We sure my nephew Dylan went home with some nice trilobite material. I gave him a nice folded over greenops from DSR and my brother in law found a killer Eldredgeops at Briggs rd. So Dylan was a happy kid with some nice fossils. Ok time to show pictures. Trying to find a way to streamline this process lol. First Saturday’s take homes
  24. Picked up a few goodies

    Just want others opinions if I got a good deal picking up all these the other day...
  25. Bivalve shell imprint in rock

    At Lake Erie this morning I was walking along the shore and found this rock, which has an imprint of a bivalve shell in it. I was looking through the collections of bivalves on this site and it seems similar to a cockle shell, but I was hoping someone a bit more knowledgeable than I am might help me to correctly identify it. I tried to get the best detail of it that I could, and I also have pictures showing size as well as ones showing other sides of the rock, in case that might help with identification. If you would like additional angles/pictures, just ask. Thank you in advance for any help!
