  1. Hello everyone! I had a fun a really fun trip last weekend with some friends, including @Jeffrey P. We hit a fern ferns spots I've found over the years, and got access to another spot I never explored.. overall, it was a good trip with good friends. Here are my favorite finds...

    Plants of Red Hill

    From the album: Catskill Formation PA fossils

    Plants from Red Hill, including Archaeopteris, Rhacophyton, and Ozinachsonia

    Hyneria and Limnomis hash

    From the album: Catskill Formation PA fossils

    Hash of Hyneria and Limnomis bones from Red Hill, April 15, 2022
  4. From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    A nice, three inch long Wanneria walcottana that I found surface collecting next to dean. He went home with the negative
  5. cameronsfossilcollection

    Red Olenellus thompsoni

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    Beautiful red Olenellus thompsoni that I purchased online.
  6. cameronsfossilcollection

    Olenellus getzi

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    Purchased this Olenellus getzi online. From the original Getz farm site where thousands of Olenellids and a few Radiodonts were found. Small for the species at an inch and a half long.
  7. cameronsfossilcollection

    Ventral Olenellus thompsoni

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    A ventrally preserved, complete Olenellus thompsoni. Needs to be prepped out by someone else haha. I managed to get the entire body out with only one nick, but those thoracic spines are too much for me!
  8. cameronsfossilcollection

    A puny Olenellus (Paedumias) yorkensis

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    A puny Olenellus (Paedumias) yorkensis that I split out at home. The rest of the bug lays buried under the rock until I send it to someone who doesn’t destroy fossils when they prep em.
  9. cameronsfossilcollection

    Larval Olenellus plate. Look close!

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    Another meraspid Olenellus plate. Look at the fused eyes!
  10. cameronsfossilcollection

    Heartbreaker Olenellus thompsoni

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    Another heartbreaker. I think this is an Olenellus thompsoni. Would’ve been gorgeous with the other half, maybe we’ll find it in the future.
  11. cameronsfossilcollection

    Fair Olenellus thompsoni

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    A nice Olenellus thompsoni(??) that was partially weathered. Still has its axial spine though!
  12. cameronsfossilcollection

    Rock covered in larval Olenellid cephalons. Look closely!

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    One of my favorite finds. This rock is covered in larval Olenellid molts. I wonder if we hit a nursery of some kind?
  13. cameronsfossilcollection

    Partial Olenellus thompsoni(?)

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    A heartbreaker. Olenellus of some kind.
  14. cameronsfossilcollection

    Kinzers multi plate!

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    A cool plate, Olenellus (Paedumias) yorkensis cephalon as well as an O. thompsoni cephalon. I’m convinced that yellow mark may be a sponge.
  15. cameronsfossilcollection

    My three inch Wanneria walcottana!

    From the album: My Kinzers Formation Fossil Collection

    The best Wanneria walcottana we found. Three inches from the tip of the cephalon to the last thoracic spine.
  16. Hello! Newbie here with a love for fossils. I have a very small collection and only casually hunt for them. Anyways, I was on a trip to Forest County, Pennsylvania this past weekend. I was cruising a creek channel looking for trout in the Allegheny NF when this caught my eye. My gut feeling was this looks like a piece of wood, but it's very dense, it does feel heavy like a piece of stone. There's a lot of sandstone in this creek valley, but this feels much heavier than that. Bark-like striations and some is flaking off like a sedimentary or mica flavor of rock. It's flat on one side with a sma
  17. Hello, I wanted to ask about the old elusive trilobite, Olenellus. I heard on a topic on here about Elbrook Formation Olenellus near Chambersburg. I was wondering if anybody knows where a good roadcut or something would be? I know how difficult it is to find suitable PA Cambrian sites. I have been to Locust Lane and found some worm traces or rust deposits but no Olenellus. I have left Locust Lane in the dust, and so I want another roadcut of some possible worth. If anyone has any pointers whatsoever then help would be appreciated. Even if a site not in Chambersburg is mentioned, such as

    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:
  19. 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
  22. 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
