    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas
  2. Yesterday, I embarked on my second journey with the Austin Paleo Society to a famous spot: The Wilson Clay Pit. It's the site of a former clay quarry that was used for the production of bricks. Though it is in private hands, the land owners are very kind and allow fossil hunters to collect a diverse range of Pennsylvanian fossils on their property. One of prize finds from the pit is the highly-coveted Petalodus tooth. Some of y'all may remember me wishing to find one on my last trip to the Brownwood area, only to realize we weren't at the right sites to find them. Well, if there was a place to
  3. I heard from a friend that someone recently posted a bryozoan I found here but I missed seeing it and I can't find it so they may have been mistaken. However, that reminded me that I had only posted it on Facebook so I thought you might like seeing it here too. I'm pretty sure it is a Tabulipora carbonaria which must have been named by a lumper since it appears in such a wide variety of forms. It can be branching, encrusting or massive. The latter is how you describe one than is self-encrusting, forming a sub-hemispherical mound, much like a stromatolite. This is one of the branchi

    Cladodont Tooth

    From the album: Chondrichthyan Teeth From The Pennsylvanian Period

    Not exactly sure what cladodont this one belongs too. Less than 10mm due to missing the tip.

    Second opinion on Eugeneodont fish tooth

    Was fortunate to find an interesting tooth a few months back. I didn't find it soon enough though. The elements had taken their toll and cracked it as well as splitting it into two pieces. After extraction and clean up, I thought it compared well to Campodus/ Agassizodus. Any thoughts?
  6. There are few reasons why I would ever wake up at 5 am and begin a two and a half hour drive out to the middle of nowhere. When I saw that the PSoA was heading out to the Brownwood area, I knew it was an opportunity too good to pass up. Everything I had hunted prior might as well have been buried yesterday when compared to the mind-blowing ages of Pennsylvanian and Permian rocks. It's still crazy to think that those formations were roughly three times the age of the oldest stuff I'd seen before. When I peeled out of the parking garage to begin my drive under the stars, I didn't feel an ounce o
  7. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found f

    Is this a fossil

    I found this in a run off area among sandstone and limestone rocks. I’ve seen plenty of squashed frogs and that is what this looked like to me. This was in an area noted as Pennsylvanian series, Graham formation. I tend to see faces in everything, so I was hoping to get help in identifying this. Any opinions are appreciated.

    Mazon Creek Collection

    I'll update this thread with my Mazon Collection over the next few weeks. With some good weather out yesterday, I managed to get my first fossil hunt in for the season and will post a report in this topic. I will be moving this upcoming summer which will put me even further from Mazon Creek so I have purchased a few pieces to fill in the genus/species I haven't found yet and will mention if I purchased a fossil. I still hold out hope to find some of these pieces I purchased eventually but will realistically be difficult if I only can make 1 trip a year. Fauna Tullimo

    Two Nautiloid Steinkerns?

    Hello, Could I get some help identifying these two nautiloid steinkerns? Unfortunately no precise age/locality info on them but I think they might be from the Pennsylvanian or Permian of Kansas or Texas. They are both around 8-9cm wide. 1. 2. Referring to this: http://inyo2.coffeecup.com/kansasfossils/kansasfossils.html I think #1. might be Metacoceras and #2. might be Liroceras. @Missourian I believe you are referenced in that post and you seem to be experienced in this fauna? Thanks

    Pennsylvanian/Permian crinoids

    Hello, I have a whole bunch of unidentified crinoids I'd like some help identifying. From my guess on the species and the fact that there were all together (as well as the other specimens that came with it), my guess is that these are Pennsylvanian or Permian-aged crinoids from Texas or Kansas. I'm hoping narrowing down the ID would better pinpoint the provenance for them. Here goes. The calyxes all range from 1-2 cm wide. I did attempt to ID them, using resources including this by the forum's @Missourian: #1-#4 I think are all of the sam

    Mazon Creek - fern or wing?

    I spotted this on the outside of a concretion this week while sorting some buckets. It looks to me like it is possibly a wing, but it's pretty water worn so it could also just be a suggestively worn fern pinnule. I was hoping for a second opinion. @Nimravis @stats @deutscheben @RCFossils @Mark Kmiecik @flipper559 Thanks. A couple shots under a microscope.

    Mazon Creek unknown

    This concretion opened up tonight. I'm not entirely sure what it is. I thought it might be a cross section of a small bone, but I could also seeing it being some weird pyrite formation - the site that this was collected at produces a lot of those. Any thoughts? A couple shots under a microscope.

    Mollusk in a phosphatic concretion

    Phosphatic concretion, Muncie Creek Shale, Kasimovian/Missourian Stage, Pennsylvanian Kansas City metro, KS/MO, USA I'm pretty sure this is a mollusk. The fine striations remind me of those on some Poterioceras: Any ideas?

    I Doubt this is Identifiable, but,

    What do I know? This piece is Pennsylvanian and probably from Brush Creek Limestone. It was found near marine fossils. I have no idea what it is. All help is appreciated.
  16. I collected this fern from the Middle Pennsylvanian of eastern Illinois. It is not a form I recognize. Do any of the plant enthusiasts here have any thoughts?

    Mazon Creek Coelacanth scale

    I had this concretion open today. I immediately noticed what I believe is a coelacanth scale, but on closer inspection there looks to be some other bits that might be related. Any thoughts? @jdp @RCFossils
  18. Hello, found what I think are nautiloids and brachiopods. I found the rock in a stream and I can't say what limestone (maybe brush creek or pine creek), but the area is Glenshaw Formation in northern Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. It's quite difficult for me to get good pictures, let alone good pictures with scale, so I'll tell you that the first two pictures are 2 cm (same organism), the second is 5.5 cm and the largest Nautilus in the last pictures is about 6 cm. All information is appreciated, thanks!

    Trilobite ID- Ameura missouriensis?

    Been on a bit of a bug hunt lately. After a lot of effort, I found a layer with trilobites. After some research, it seems the 3 types of trilobite genus available in Pennsylvanian aged rocks around this area are Ameura, Anisopyge, and Ditomopyge. Ameura missouriensis is reported from the Deer Creek Formation and looks like the closest match. I just wanted to get some second opinions and see what others thought as well. Enrolled, but missing cheeks Isolated cephalon

    Any Chance Dating These Crinoids?

    I was searching around a local stream when I found some limestone with dozens of crinoid stems. I can't say what the formation is as I think they rolled down a hillside which had foreign limestone blocks to prevent erosion. If they are native, they would be Pennsylvanian Glenshaw Formation. Each of them has stellate lumens and many have a pinkish hue. Can anyone tell me what variety of crinoid and is it possible to discern the period? Thanks.

    Cladodont tooth- Saivodus?

    I was pulling out a few slabs to work on and ended up finding a big Cladodont tooth. It split cleanly in 3 pieces. It appears it would fit back perfect, and be preparable. The piece with most of where the root is, is either missing or concealed inside rock still possibly hiding cusplets. The tooth looks like it would measure about 3.5-4cm in length if fully exposed. Unfortunately, I lack the tools and probable skill to prepare this any further. I was still curious if anyone was more familiar with Cladodont teeth, as this definitely is not like the last one, a Glikmanius tooth. Saivodus is one
  22. On Saturday I went fossil hunting with @Tales From the Shale in Utica, LaSalle County, Illinois! We drove for some time looking for roadcuts when we discovered an abandoned clay pit not too far away from the town itself. I learned later its rocks date to the Pennsylvanian period of the Carboniferous era. There were also a bunch of nodules there too, but mostly it was stark shale and Excello shale. We opened the shale rocks up and we found a massive amount of small fossil imprints. But we also found some likely Chondrichthyan spines which I was wondering if anyone could ID the genera?
  23. This came from the Late Pennsylvanian, Jacksboro LImestone of the Graham formation near Jacksboro, Texas. At first I thought it was Shansiella but the flat bottom and huge umbilicus doesn't fit. It is 4 cm across and 3 cm high with the tip of the apex probably missing.

    Pennsylvanian Brachiopod Bi-Valve?

    Howdy! Found this little critter today in Allegheny county, Pennsylvania. It is Pennsylvanian, Glenshaw Formation, probably Brush Creek Limestone. It's a bit different from the ones I'm used to finding and I don't see anything similar in my guides. It is approximately 1.75 cm x 1.25 cm. Even if it can't be ID'd I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me if it's brachiopod or bi-valve. Thanks in advance.
