    Devonian Hamilton trip

    Hi everyone, Just figured I would post a quick trip report for cole hill rd NY. I set out about 9am on Sunday about 80 degrees F , I brought plenty of water knowing it was supposed to be 97 that day. Found my spot around 10:30 or so parked my truck , started scanning the shale pit. Within 5 minutes I was finding a lot more than I expected. Kicked around about an hour found some shade picked at some shale slabs I had collected. I’m used to hot and humid weather actually I prefer it over the alternative any day. So noticed I’m starting to sweat better head over to the truck get some water.
  3. Hello Everyone, Took a trip to Rickard hill rd July 22 nd one of the better collecting days . Hot but just cannot stop enjoy the pictures. not cleaned yet as collected.
  4. My wife and I traveled up to western upstate NY this past weekend for Penn Dixie's annual dig with the experts event. This was our first visit to the park and we were happy to finally use up the tickets we had originally purchased for the 2020 dig. The event was sold out both days and the staff seemed happy to be back in normal operations. The weather was perfect, with bright sunny skies and temps in the 50s to 60s day 1 and 60s to low 70s day 2. Lots of folks digging: We didn't find anything crazy good, but didn't get blanked with a mix o

  6. Hi all, not sure if anyone can help with this. A long time ago (like 35 plus years) I went on a fossil hunt. I was little but believe it was somewhere in New York. We went for a hike in palisades on the same day. We picked these oyster shells and were under the impression ever since that they’re fossilized. They are hard and heavy. I would value any input anyone may have about them. Thanks in advance.

    NY Middle Devonian ID Help

    Today I finished searching through some matrix a friend sent me from the Alden Pyrite Beds (Middle Devonian; Ludlowville Formation, Ledyard Shale). I found a bunch of cool Tornoceras goniatites, several Ambocoelia brachiopods, and even a tiny enrolled Greenops and Eldredgeops. I also found a couple fossils that I have not been able to identify yet. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what they could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1- 3mm in size #2- 1cm in size- looks like some type of Nuculid (note the teeth)

    no idea what so ever

    I have no idea. Suggestions have been: Crinoid Caylx or ‘gumdrop’ bryozoan starting to grow a branch. Probably growing on a brachiopod or something. Sorry forgot....found at Devonian, Penn Dixie, Hamburg, NY.

    Id help - coral rugosa?

    Found these at Salt Point beach of Cayuga lake. Are these rugosa corals? The length range is from 0.5 cm to 2.5 cm. Thank you!
  19. Just as the title reads, if you look closely you can see several small clams in this but no idea what to make of the mini B-2 in there. Any ideas? This was Ilion NY btw.

    Middle Devonian Brachiopod ID Help

    This past Sunday I found this brachiopod along with several others at an exposure of the Moscow Formation (Middle Devonian) in Western NY. I looked through Linsley and Wilson without much success at identifying it. It is likely an immature specimen, which always makes figuring out an identification hard. I would love to hear your thoughts. Any help is greatly appreciated! Also, while I have your attention, I could use some help differentiating Spinatrypa spinosa and Pseudoatrypa devoniana. Spinatrypa spinosa? Pse

    unknown fossil

    Found this in a creek bed, middle devonian, near King Ferry, NY. Was wondering what it could be? It makes a circle. Looks to be a little chert also. Thanks Greg
  22. grg1109


    Could this be an imprint from a Nautiloid Spyroceras nuntium in Sand stone? (1st photo). 2nd photo is opposite side. 3rd photo = much smaller (I believe mud mold. Why I ask is that it seems very large compared to the ones I've found...and to make sure of the id. I forgot to add: Middle Devonian, Cayuga Lake, King Ferry, NY. Thanks Greg

    NY Lower Devonian Brachiopod Help

    About 10 days ago @Jeffrey P and I collected at an exposure near his house that is full of Lower Devonian brachiopods. I was amazed by the diversity of brachiopods at the site. But what makes this site so special also makes it tough to identify everything. I did my best to identify many of my finds, but I am a bit stumped on several others. A lot of the sketches in Linsley's plates are starting to look alike. I could really use some help, even if it is a guess on the family or genus. Please let me know what you think. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you! #1- Spirinella modes

    Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else

    This Bivalve is from the Middle Devonian, near Seneca Lake in NYS. Could this be Modiella pygmaea? Thanks Greg
