    Wood Imprint?

    Hi there! I found this here in Central Ohio a few years ago. It's a fairly light rock. As you can see from the photos, it has a few different things going on with it (at least it seems they're separate but perhaps not?). I've searched quite a bit to try and figure out what this is. It appears to be the end of a tree branch or something but I can't seem to find anything that matches up with it so I'm hopeful you lovely people can assist! Thank you!

    Petrified Wood?

    This was found at a gravel pit in Northeast Ohio. 8" long, 2" diameter. Petrified wood? We have 0 knowledge on fossils so any info would be greatly appreciated!

    This was found near Adams Mills, Ohio in woods near a body of water. It floats in water. Any ideas on what this is?

    Possible fossilized leg bone?

    Hi, I found this bone while kayaking this summer on the riverbank of the Greater Miami River in Dayton, Ohio. I have no archaeological background so I hope this is a good place for help in this identification. The bone is 20 inches in length and very dense. Thanks for looking

    Silica Shale Placoderm ID

    Hello everyone, I recently got this Ptyctodont tooth plate from a certain well known auction site and wanted to see if anyone here may know where I could get more info to identify it. I purchased this fossil for really cheap, I'm not sure why but I was the only person to bid on it, not sure if others just didn't recognize it, or nobody was interested. This plate is a large, at least in comparison to my two other 1 cm long Ptyctodus plates from Russia, and is labeled as coming from the Mid Devonian Silica Shale in Paulding OH. I took a look in my book on the Silica Shale and saw that

    Paleozoic Shark Teeth

    Wow. This was one of my favorite hunts I’ve had in a long time. I’ve been looking for Paleozoic sharks teeth for a really long time, and have finally stumbled across them. I took a trip out to southeastern Ohio, and I’m not disappointed to say the least. These sites were really small, but I found a LOT of shark teeth, and fish fossils as well. Here’s the finds: Shark teeth: These sharks teeth are a lot smaller than the ones I find at home, but they’re a whole lot cooler since they’re new. This one is broken. This one’s a really nice sharks tooth. T

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg

    Ohio Glacial Till Fossil

    Hi I’m not knowledgeable in fossils, but I have quite a few I have found while mineral mining. I have come across my first bone fossil on one of our clubs private leases and wanted to share with you all to see if anyone could get me close to an ID. It was found on private property and is obvious it was pushed with glacial till in a creek in north central Ohio. We all usually find marine fossils and this one is not an ordinary find. Thank you all and enjoy the pics. David

    Fossil ID from Lake Erie, OH

    Hi! Could someone help me identify this fossil on a stone found on the shore of Lake Erie, Ohio? Forgot to picture it next to a coin but the rock is about the size of a nickel. First picture is one side, second picture is the other side, same stone.
  11. Need help identifying this pygidium. Is it Flexicalymene granulosa? Lower Miamitown. 3.5mm.
  12. I recently acquired this little lot of Ordovician fossils but the info I received was somewhat lacking and mixed up. I hate to ask this because I feel like I should have gotten all the info to begin with, and having not gotten it, I figured I would have no trouble piecing it together. I think I have gotten past the spelling mistakes and such but I am stuck at this point.... Could anyone check to see if the info I have on these is correct, and maybe narrow down the locations, and tell me which subspecies of Vinlandostrophia is which? I wouldn't be surprised if the original collector is a

    Mystery Crinoids

    Hello, A while ago I bought this small crinoid piece labeled as "Gilbertocrinus sp." coming from Dent, Ohio. The main crown on the front is small at just over 2cm, and there is also one calyx on the backside. I suspect the genus is a typo for Gilbertsocrinus. However it does not resemble any Gilbertsocrinus I know, lacking tegmenal appendages and calyx spines. Instead I was told by a very knowledgeable collector that it resembles Pycnocrinus, an ordovician genus. More importantly, I was told that the locality of Dent, Ohio is Ordovician-aged, no Mississipian or even Devonian. So it
  14. I have no experience identifying fossils/bones, but while hiking near the Olentangy River recently, in Franklin County, Ohio, USA, I noticed what appeared to be a "thumb" consisting of three bones that appeared to have recently been uncovered as the dirt and debris surrounding the area where I noticed it was slightly disturbed. I've taken a series of pictures of it, and it appears to be possibly a thumb-like appendage, but the end bone is triangular and somewhat resembles a shark tooth. Curious if anybody may be able to identify what these bones may belong to, as I haven't the slightest clue.

    Need help identifying this fossil.

    Found in creek in muskingum county, Ohio. There are a few more in this particular rock. So if you see some and can help with identifying please feel free to do so. Thanks.
  17. This morning I drove from my hotel in Lawrenceburg, Indiana into Kentucky for a little collecting (more on that on a separate post), and then I driven into Cincinnati, Ohio to attend the Dry Dredgers GeoFair 2022. This is one show that I have always wanted to attend, but never had the time. This year it worked out well since I was stopping over to do some collecting on my way home from Sanibel Island. I arrived at the show at 10:00 am and there was a huge line waiting to get in, I would guesstimate 125+ people. The show was held at the Sharonvi

    Egg Fossil

    I’m looking to get some info on this. Which I found in central Ohio.
  19. While playing outside with my grandkids I found what I thought were just fossils however discovered they’re snakes. I have quite a few pieces a lot with detailed markings but I’m not sure of species. There’s various sizes and I also found skins, tongues and teeth. Some still have stuff inside of the head. They’re also in different rock/mineral forms. I have many more of various colors, shapes and sized. Thanks for your help

    I found these in my flower beds around my house. I've been noticing some small little fossilized type sea shells that are really tiny in general. I've also found a few other items that I'm really curious about. The first item found looks like a tooth and I'm trying to figure out if it is or not as well as if it is indeed a tooth if it is something that is prehistoric. The other few pictures look like cylindrical rocks that are the same in size and shape. They each have an end on them that looks sort of like they've been clamped and it has a indentation on that end of the rock
  21. 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.

    Caesar Creek Lake Fossil

    Greetings. I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I'm an amateur collector in Ohio who recently visited the Caesar Creek park and came back with a fossil I can't identify. Here is data about the site: Liberty and Whitewater Formations (Camp, Roadside Geology of Ohio, p. 61) Classified Ordovician Limestone and Shale The fossil is just over six centimeters long. It washed out of the formation naturally; I've done minimal preparation. The fossil has a flattened cone shape. One end has a distinct point, the surface is pitted and wrinkled (skin-like), and there
  23. Taxonomy from Lowney 1980. Diagnosis from Lowney 1980, p. 949: "The skull roof is usually ornamented faintly at the lateral borders of the dermopterotics and frontals; the center of the skull roof appears smooth. The maxilla narrows under the orbit and tapers sharply at the anterior end (Text-fig. 3; PI. 2, fig. 4). The nasals are Y-shaped, with a long posterior process. The suboperculum is equal to or larger than the operculum. The lateral line scales remain tall and serrate all the way to the caudal (P1. 1, fig. 5). There are often a few vertebral centra visible anteriorly (Text-fig. 3B
