    Penn Dixie 5/27-28

    This is a few pictures of a trip to Penn Dixie, the finds of two days. This is a bit of a family tradition now, as we go to the site once a year. Now the finds. All the stuff I managed to get. A bit crushed and twisted, but still nice. Some partials. The one on the left is pretty nicely sized. Group shot of some decent rollers I found surface collecting. A big hunk of pyrite. This one really sparkles, though it’s a bit hard to photograph. I thought this Aulocystis looked pretty nice, so I kept it. A first for me, Palaeozygopleura. I think it’s P. delphico

    Penn Dixie June Trip

    After my most recent field trip where there were at least three other TFF members present, but I didn't know it until afterwards, I wanted to be a bit more proactive for an upcoming trip. Last Fall, my wife and I made our first visit to Penn Dixie and had a great time. It was a very nice day and it was a weekday after the regular season so we were the only people in the quarry for most of the day. The only downside was that the pit and the most trilobite rich rocks were under water. My luck, less than a week after we were there, the society newsletter said they had just pumped out the pit!
  3. I’ll show my collection here. 1. Agnostida This is my only example from this order. Itagnostus interstrictus Wheeler Shale U-dig Quarry, Delta, Millard County, Utah Middle Cambrian Purchased Scale bar is 1 cm.

    Some More Penn-Dixie Stuff

    Some more unidentified stuff. A Rhynchonellid? Not very confident with my brach IDs. Pedicle valve. Brachial valve. Cardinal view Front view. Two specimens of something. Wood, maybe?

    Some Penn Dixie Unidentified

    Some specimens I have that need an ID. Thanks in advance for the help. 1. Phyllocarid bit? From the trilobite beds. 2. Bryozoan. Width around 4 mm. From the Bayview Coral beds. Rhombopora? 3. Another bryozoan. Also from the Bayview. Another Rhombopora? 4. Some kind of Strophomenid brachipod? Again, from the Bayview. 5. Very badly preserved gastropod. From the trilobite beds.

    Penn Dixie and Trenton Group Trip

    Hi all, about 2 weeks ago during my spring break my father and I made the 6 hour trip up to Buffalo NY to collect at Penn Dixie. Our main focus is to bring back blocks for our weathering pile in the back yard, so we worked from around 11am to 5pm moving chunks and transporting them to the car. Here is a photo of me driving a wedge into the huge row of rock we were working on, it was pinned and took probably 30 min and a lot of thinking to break it free. Ill attach photos of some finds from the day below. Disarticulated Eldredgeops and a

    Komp’s Fossil Preps

    Hi all, my good friend @Nautiloidand I have been doing some collecting at a site in the Trenton Group recently and we have been finding what we believe to be Gravicalymene magnotuberculata. The matrix is soft and quite easy to prep, which was a nice surprise. This one was found by my father @Penguin Fiasco Here it was before preparation Bonus headless Triarthrus Beckie appears! All done, now time to clean off the abrasive powder! Here it is after preparation, I am pretty happy with the result. Please excuse the

    Penn Dixie Trip

    I will be spending the day at Penn Dixie Fossil Park for the first time this Friday. If any other members will be there, let me know if you like and we can swap stories, compare finds, etc. Also, if any of our experienced PD members have any tips for the trip, id love to hear them. Feel free to PM if you prefer. I’ll try to post some finds here after the trip if we find anything worthwhile. Thanks!!

    Devonian ID

    I was at Penn Dixie a few weeks ago and had trouble figuring out what a couple of my finds could be. My first thought for this one was a piece of a trilobite, but I’m not 100% sure on that. I don’t know where to start with this one. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    A Trip to Penn Dixie

    I was finally able to get back to Penn Dixie for the first time in a couple years. Between the pandemic and life just getting busy, it had been difficult to find time to do a little fossil hunting. But this past weekend I was able to make a few decent finds. I have a lot of the common fossils found at Penn Dixie so I was trying to limit myself to things I haven’t found before and/or better quality specimens. Here are a few of my finds, some of which I’m not quite sure what they are. A sizable hash plate with a nice bryozoan (my first at this site!) An
  18. At the “Dig with the Experts” earlier this month at Penn Dixie, I found this interesting surface fossil on a block that the on location experts seemed to agree was a placoderm fossil. Approximately 5 inches (12.5cm), it is thin, pigmented and has intermittent perforations or pustules. In an adjacent pile, another more extensive and remarkable set of fossil strips like this presumptive placoderm were found by another rock buster. Anecdotally, it was remarked by staff that these two putative placoderm blocks were excavated from the “same region” of the pit as the apparent Dunkleosteus jaw discov

    A tiny orthoconic cephalopod from New York

    Hi everyone! I just got back from a trip to Penn Dixie Fossil Park near Buffalo, New York, and found some pyritized cephalopod fossils. Penn Dixie has rocks form the Givetian of the Devonian from the Hamilton Group. A young ammonoid is easily identified as Tornoceras uniangulare, but the other orthoconic fossils are harder to ID. I am pretty sure the small but more complete one is a Bactrites, because the siphuncle appears to be almost ventral, the distance between the septa, and the slightly slanted suture (after looking at Ludwigia's). The preserved shell is very smooth and couldn't be from
  20. 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
