  1. Bringing Fossils to Life

    Bone ID

    For the longest time I have puzzled over this strange bone. At first of course I thought it was a "Hynerpton scute," because I have a memory of finding it somewhat near where the holotype was found and no papers picture them, so I couldn't compare. Recently I've doubted its identity as I've researched Ichthyostega scales and scutes, but have no idea of what it actually is. Any ideas? On the imprint nearest to the camera a texture can be seen, shiny smooth with little circular rounded bumps that are the negatives of pores. Size a little less than 1.5 cm from end to end.
  2. Bringing Fossils to Life

    What kind of Jawbone?

    A few months ago I found this bone at Red Hill before I learned of the need for a permit but didn't grasp its significance. Later I realized it was a jawbone section with four small teeth in it. Unfortunately I dropped it and the end of the most complete tooth fell off, but not before I was able to take pictures. I have not tried to finalize preparation for fear of destroying the remaining teeth. I can't see any sutures, at least not in the place they would be for a tetrapodomorph, and the teeth look more like Hyneria anyway. However, all Hyneria jawbones I've seen have two rows of teeth, a s
  3. Took the long trip to Red Hill for the second time today, my first attempt was fun but I found absolutely nothing and was totally confounded by the site in terms of where to look and what even to look for. This time I returned after a lot of reading and watching and did much better and (I think) found my very first Paleozoic vertebrate fossils! Curious if anyone experienced with the site could tell me about these and if anyone has any collecting (or preparation!) tips for the site. Also if anyone is planning any trips this season I'd love to tag along! First find was broken sadly,

    Hash of Hyneria and Limnomis bones from Red Hill, April 15, 2022
  20. So here is my 2021 summary of my collecting trips to the late Devonian Catskill formation of Pennsylvania. I have been collecting for the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia for the past few years. A Tristichopterid skull collected at the Cogan House exit on RT15 in the 2019 season was just described as a new species of Eusthenodon in JVP, Daeschler et. al.. Very exciting! All three trips to PA this year included Red Hill. While the forestry department was very limiting on the use of power tools, they seem to not care too much if people collect with hand tools. The problem is mos

    Red Hill Fossil Hunting

    On August 15 I went to Red Hill near North Bend, PA, with my parents, grandparents, and aunt along with my friend. The weather was not much better than now. It was searing hot. Our first stop was the North Bend Municipal Building, which housed the Red Hill Fossil Display. We met the discoverer of one of the earliest amphibians ever, Densignathus, named Douglas Rowe. He led us back to Red Hill, and we started to fossil hunt. I was determined to carry on the hunt for a good transitional fossil, like Hynerpeton. I immediately found a nice-sized Hyneria scale. After hunting for

    Devonian placoderm?

    Hi all! I pulled this fossil out of Red Hill, a Devonian site in central Pennsylvania. I thought it looks like it could possibly be part of a placoderm but I’d love to get some help with further identification. Thanks in advance!

    Red Hill Matrix

    Hi everyone! I have what I was told is Red Hill matrix that has been sitting on my porch for a very long time now... Anyone familiar with this matrix that can help me out? I am wondering if it does in fact look like Red Hill and the best way to break the matrix down? Some are very large chunks that have too much quartz to dissolve I think but here are some of the smaller pieces. As you can see there's a lot of shells in there... lol Any feedback appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    Devonian fish scales

    With not a lot of new material to obsess with (broken arm) I have been going through old specimens to see if there are unfinished prepping and ID needed. Here is a set of scales/scale impressions collected in 2014 at Red Hill, late devonian (Famennian) site in Pennsylvania. Found in the shallow channel margin (red sediments) with what has been ID'd as a couple scapulocoracoids of the acanthodian, Gyracanthus (plus a fin spine). They are almost certainly sarcopterygian but not sure what clade. Has anyone, Archie? seen similar scales. Thought they might be Holoptychius but they don't look like t
