  1. 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

    My Best Carboniferous Finds

    Hi all, I’ve posted a few topics on the forum but have yet to show my entire collection, or my best finds. So here goes. A little background on me. I’ve been fossil hunting since I was very young, probably since I was 4 when I found a plant fossil in my backyard. Over the past few years as I have ventured into adulthood I have gotten very interested in the fossils of the Pittsburgh area. I will display my best finds here and periodically update the thread with new finds. As a note, many of the vertebrate fossils I have found are rare and may be important to science. I have been in contact

    Our Great I-80 Road Trip

    Greetings, all! After exploring outcrops and spoils piles from Quebec down to Florida, we are heading west from Delaware to Crawford, Nebraska and back this fall. Planning to stop by Sylvania, OH and Clear Lake, IA. Probably Richmond, IN. Any other suggestions? Thoughts on these three?
  4. I had the opportunity to collect plant fossils in Western Pennsylvania a few weeks ago. Success was had IDing the fern leaves. But I am having difficulty identifying the woody pieces found that are not Calamites. These came from the Glenshaw Formation, Mahoning Shale which is Pennsylvanian. I realize that a decaying swamp is full of twigs that likely are unidentifiable, but there seems to be structure in at least some of these which could lead to some sort of identification. I am hoping those knowledgeable with the Pennsylvanian flora can chime in. 1. Here are some larger pieces

    Fossil ID. Lehighton Pennsylvania

    Yesterday, after a very uneventful couple of hours of searching, I happened upon several fossils in close proximity right as I was about to call it a day. I believe four are horn coral, but would like confirmation, and would also like an ID on the other. One photo shows the four that were similar, and then a few angles of the one in the best condition. There is also one more I believe to be another type of coral. Thanks in advance!
  7. I found this in our backyard in a rock pile. I find many Devonian fossils in the shale lined creeks around Erie, PA. This rock appears to be similar but is extremely heavy and different colored. I can make out fossils but don’t recognize some of the imprints abs it appears folded and is SUPER heavy. For comparison, the rock I found with it, also pictured here is about 3-4x the size but the smaller one weighs 3x as much. No magnetism, but has a burnt spot. Was it perhaps originally a large piece of the lighter fossil plate that someone burned (possibly in a fire pit?) and that is how i

  9. Hello again! I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for places in the north east US (around PA) that I could research? As was suggested to me, I’ve narrowed down the things I’d like to collect. I’m really interested in fossils that.. well look like things. Don’t get me wrong, shells and crinoids are exciting! But I’d be so jazzed to have fish, crustaceans, insects, or plants. Anomalocaris are so rad, though I fully understand that those are hard to find so I’m going to focus on other stuff for now lol. Maybe someday. My dad in particular wanted me to ask if anyone knew of any ea

    Are these tracks??

    My husband purchased this landscaping rock in a pallet from a Bath/Bethlehem, PA area supplier about 20 years ago. Most of the supplier’s stones are from Pennsylvania. I’m guessing this is sandstone??? I’ve been staring at this rock for sometime and before I place it back, I wanted to get some opinions if anyone sees any type of tracks on this rock? I feel like my fingers fit in the specimen very nicely. Can’t tell if I’m seeing 3, 4 or 5 “toes” ? Maybe I’m just an imaginative newbie. Thanking anyone in advance who looks at these photos.

    Plant ID?

    Can anyone identify this plant from Pennsylvania?
  18. I went back to Beltzville recently and found a few more fossils with which I would like help identifying. Last time I found what may have been a partial trilobite, and this time I found another that seems more likely. I also found a fossil that I originally picked up for the crinoid stem, but later noticed a dome with an almost honeycomb-like pattern on it. I am very curious as to what it is. And lastly, what appears almost like a large ring. Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks as always!

    Seeking Eastern PA sites?

    I'd really like to get more into fossil hunting and rock hounding after how much fun I had at the beach. Are there any good sites I can access around Eastern PA? Specifically up to an hour or two of driving distance from Berks County. When I search for sites in PA I usually see suggestions for Central and West PA. I'm not looking to join any groups atm for personal reasons, but I'll take suggestions for when I feel up to it (there's a group in Reading I'm keeping an eye on). Any tips would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Beltzville State Park

    The Delaware Valley Paleontological Society got a permit to explore the restricted area at Beltaville Dam in Lehighton, PA today. The spillway for the dam is immense! The 20-50ish foot walls of the spillway are covered with rubble in swaths of hard blue-black and red stone, soft colorful clay stone, and the occasional bit of tan sandstone. All are from the Upper Devonian Mahantango Formation. The sun was shining, the air was warm and the wind was still. Perfect day for prospecting! Everybody spread out along the walls. There was more than ample room for everybody to claim
  21. This Missourian is headed out to the Late Devonian of western New York state and Pennsylvania this coming week and hoping for a little help from y'all on localities for eurypterids and the sponge Hydnoceras. Are Clarke's (1920) Hydnoceras localities at Brown Hill (near Cohocton, NY) and Irish Hill (near Bath, NY) still productive and accessible? Are Ehlers' (1935) eurypterid localities at Bush Hill (near Smethport, PA)? Or are there other spots I should be checking out? I understand that the Trimmers Rock Formation in the vicinity of Bloomsburg, PA, is also worth a look for eurypterids, but I

    Reptile Skin Fossil?

    Hi all! I have this fossil (at least I'm fairly certain it's a fossil lol) that I've had for a very long time now but I haven't been able to figure out what it is. It came into my possession through some weird means, long story short a classmate of mine from first grade found it out in the middle of our elementary school field (this was about 12-13 years ago) and gave it to me because I was known as the "dinosaur kid". Because it was just sitting in the middle of a grassy field I suspect that it was moved from its original location, possibly by a kid or a construction worker when the school wa
  23. I found this in Casselman River in Rockwood Pennsylvania a few years back just laying in the middle of the river as I was walking through it trying not to slip on the rocks haha! Always thought it was an intriguing & unique find but still to this day I have no idea what it is. No one whom I've showed it to over the years could identify it either. Needless to say, we're not expirenced in fossils none the less! I just stumbled upon this site and thought to myself how great it would be to have it finally identified after all these years (found it in 2014) so I figured I'd post some photos a

    Ordovician fossils in PA

    Hi everyone, I recently remembered the location of swatara Gap in Pennsylvania, I remember reading about it but the problem is that the site was covered up way before I was even in the United States, there is the swatara state park nearby but that has younger Devonian rocks of the mahantango. My question is are there any similar sites with Ordovician rocks anywhere in PA? I am especially interested in the Cryptolithus trilobites and if those can be found anywhere else around here as that would be a wonderful fossil to add to the collection and have the experience of uncovering.

    Placoderm Thoracic Plate?

    My first question as a new member to the forum. Are these two placoderm plates? The serrated edge caught my attention, as well as the hard, bone like feel and color to the fossil. They are very different from the brachiopods, coral, or other Devonian fossils I have found. This came from the Deer Lake area north of Cabelas as was suggested by another fossil forum member.
