    Swatara rail trail fossils

    I recently came across a fossiliferous exposure along an old rail trail near Swatara State Park, PA. Most of the fossils there were brachiopods, but I also found several interesting fossils I couldn't identify. Fossils in this area are from the Middle Devonian Period, or so I've read. These two appear to be the same species, perhaps at different stages of development: This last one (cast and mold) looks like a tooth, but I suspect it's really some kind of hyolith:
  2. Hi. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the name of this type of Trilobite that I've been finding in the Shriver Formation in Central Pennsylvania? The one picture is of a Cephalon and the rest are mostly the tail ends. Thank you.

    Fish Scale?

    Anyone know what this is?? It looks like some sort of fish scale, and it has a chunk of some sort of bone or something attached to it. Anyways, here is main info: Date collected: 11/6/21 Formation: Catskill Member: Duncannon Age: Late Devonian, 365-361 mya What was collected: possible scale attached to a bone? Scale is broken in half. Appearance: scale is ridged, four ridges seen, covered in striations running from left to right. It looks like it is about as thick as half a dime.

    Beltzville State Park, PA

    Beltzville State Park is one of those rare parks where collecting is allowed. The adjacent federal land, owned and operated by the Corps of Engineers to operate the dam there, is accessible ONLY WITH A PERMIT. It is a functioning spillway and there is a gun range for the local police, so you and USACE need to make sure you are safe. With that important disclaimer out of the way, here's the good stuff! Beltzville is a very productive Middle Devonian site which includes the PA State Fossil, the trilobite Eldredgeops rana. Although no one in the group found any definite complete
  5. Hello TFF friends! During the summer, in August I was able to take a trip to northwestern PA to collect some fossils at various locations. One of them had many different types of trace fossils which I did not collect (something I regret doing as those ichnofossils were quite interesting and beautiful), but I also found this piece, it is a thin sandstone piece containing multiple bivalve steinkern a from 1 to about 2.5cm in length. I am not sure what formation it was, the closest I can think of that is present in the area is Lock Haven but that one mostly has brachiopods and I didn't

    More Pennsylvanian Plants of PA

    A few weeks ago @Jeffrey P and I met up in Eastern Pennsylvania to collect plant material in the Late Pennsylvanian Llewellyn Formation. We started our day at Centralia and then made our way to another site. I have visited Centralia a few times now but Jeff had never been there before. Our hope was to find Jeff a nice Trigonocarpus seed but unfortunately our efforts did not come up with anything. The pickings at Centralia were rather slim. However, we did see in-situ a large segment of Stigmaria ficoides root with rootlets. I ended up only keeping a few finds. The firs

    Pennsylvanian Plant ID Help

    On Saturday I took a trip to collect some Late Pennsylvanian plant material from the Llewellyn Formation of Pennsylvania. I am still working through my finds and identifying everything, but as an initial matter I had a question about two pieces. I have a guess on what they can be and was hoping someone might be able to confirm my suspicions. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you! First, I believe that this fossil preserves the cell structure of a Calamites stem Second, are these the terminal shoots of Asterophyllites? Unfortunately some of it broke in transport b

    Trace Fossil ID

    A little over a month ago my dad and I checked out two exposure of the Mifflintown Formation (Late Silurian) in Western PA. While the sites are known mostly for their brachiopods, we ended up finding a couple of other fossils, including several Favosites niaragensis, Hormotoma, and some trace fossils. While I would normally leave the trace fossils alone, I was really awed by the size and appearance of the burrows. I love the bumpiness of the burrows and randomness of their direction. They are almost a work of art. So I decided to take one home. I am not very good at identifying trace fossils t

    Dragonfly wing or helicopter seed

    From what I've read and pictures I've perused I'm pretty convinced that this is a helicopter seed. Anybody have some insight for me? The venation looks too . . . regular, soI'm undecided. My son found it. I hope the photo does it justice.

  13. Last weekend I took advantage of the warm weather to visit my favorite exposure of the Llewellyn Formation in Eastern Pennsylvania and collect some Late Pennsylvanian plants. I had not been to this site in some time but I was inspired to visit it again by some recent Llewellyn Formation fern finds by @frankh8147. I had the site to myself except for the noise of nearby ATVs and BMX bikes whose riders were also seeking to take advantage of the great weather. Despite temperatures in the fifties, there was still snow on the ground. I spent about 4 hours digging out and splitting large blocks of sh

    Pennsylvanian Plant ID Help

    This past Saturday I collected some Late Pennsylvanian ferns and plants from an exposure of the Llewellyn Formation in Eastern Pennsylvania. I got lucky and found some new things to add to my collection, including the following. I am not quite sure what they are. My guess is that they are associated with a lycopod - possibly the terminal shoot of a lycopod branch where the Cyperites leaves come off. I did find Lepidodendron branches and Cyperites bicarinatus at this site. These fossils are really small - only about 1.5cm to 4cm in length.

    Pennsylvanian Mystery Plant

    After searching through a couple of publications on Pennsylvanian plants, I am a bit stumped on what this plant could be. It is certainly not the classic fern or horsetail that one often collects from the Llewellyn Formation of Eastern Pennsylvania. The preservation is ok - not perfect, but better than some plant material I have collected from this site. I unfortunately broke the piece trying to transport it out of the site. Here is an attempted close-up of the individual leaves and their venation Here is the negative with some more preserved venatio
