    Mediospirifer with visible brachidium Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania
  2. Hi everyone! Last saturday we went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to Hotton in the Belgian Ardennes. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/667 There were 2 different locations planned for the day, the first was the "Carrière de Marenne" quarry in Hotton were we spent most of the day. It was my first time at this location, so I didn't have very high expectations but we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the finds which made for a very productive and succesfull trip! Unfortunately like so often I forgot to make pictures inside th

    Another Mahantango mystery

    Hello all, I noticed something unusual when cleaning this rather large brachiopod steinkern. Frankly I am stumped: what do you guys think? Found in Perry County, Pennsylvania. Mahantango formation. Middle Devonian.

    Adam's Late / Upper Silurian

    The thread http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/84678-adams-silurian/ was getting rather enormous, so I have decided to leave that one to deal with the Llandovery and Wenlock and put my specimens from the Late / Upper Silurian here, though I don't have a great deal of material from the Ludlow and Pridoli yet. However, I do still have some jolly nice specimens to show off here. Here are my other collection threads for the Cambrian and Ordovician ; http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/78887-adams-cambrian/&tab=comments#comment-832018 and : http://www.
  5. Have some Mid Devonian brachiopod or bivalve shells that I am not sure about, tried to do some research on my own on what I found. Hoping to get some ID confirmation or help here. Greatly appreciate the help. 7 pictures below: 1. Bivalve Shell? Moscow Formation I believe 2. Brachiopod Shell, never found another like this one? Windom Shale from Livingston Co. Wondering the difference between these two spirifers: 3. 4. 5. Rhipidomella? 6. or is this Rhipidomella?
  6. The weather was promising, the husband wanted a good place to hike, and the dog had cabin fever. So I loaded them, along with my gear, into the truck and drove down to Crystal Lake to hunt around in the Madison limestone while the husband and the dog went for a romp in the Big Snowy Mountains. On the dirt road to the area, we drove past a mama black bear and her cub, hanging out only about 30 feet from the road. To avoid aggravating either, we didn't slow down to take pictures, but my husband was pretty "bear"-anoid about running into them again Well, the mountains weren't s

    What species of spirifer?

    Greetings! I went on a quick (~60 minute) hunt today on the Iowa River in Iowa City, Iowa. The rocks there are from the Coralville Group of the Cedar Valley Formation (Devonian), mostly limestone and dolomite. I hope to post a brief summary in the Trips forum soon. I didn't find much, but one thing I did get is a large spirifer of some sort. I'm excited about it because it contains both valves, with pretty good preservation of the entire ventral valve and good preservation of one "wing" of the dorsal valve. It measures about 10 cm from tip to tip (sounds better than from cardinal extremity to

    Prospection day in the Ardennes.

    This is a little prospaction day that we have done a month ago. The original thought was to go to Barveaux in the Ardennes, a site renowned for its spirifers and prospect other locations. The first stop was the area of Barveaux itself, but everything was overgrown and hard to access, so we didn't find anything here. We then hit the road to the south and prospected a few outcrops without a lot of success. After a while we passed Marche en Famenne,. Nearby was a industrial area where in the past I've found lots of spiriferids on construction sites, so we

  10. Pinal Geology Museum

    Collection Available

    The Pinal Geology Museum (pinalgeologymuseum.org) in Coolidge Arizona has a fossil collection that it would like to donate to a college, university, or museum. There are over 1000 specimens, they are all cataloged and each one has an index card. Most of the samples are small just a few inches in size with a few larger ones. There are mainly brachiopods and corals, but I have not looked carefully at the collection which is in storage. This collection was mader by a collector over a 70 year time period and it was donated to our museum by his family when he passed away. The whole col

    Typical spirifer litter from the Arkona Fm. They tend to be very fragile, so it is more common to find them in this state.

    Spirifer ID needed!

    Hey everyone, Here is one of my first fossils. My grandparents bought it for me quite a few years ago. The only info I have is this: Spirifer (no species?), found in the Holte de Bison (Belgium). I never heard of that location, and there are no results whatsoever about that location on Google... Do you know what species it is? And maybe you have an idea of where it could have been found (+ age)? Best regards, Max

    Mostly Mediosprifier with maybe the odd Mucrospirifer. Largest ones I've encountered compared to Arkona.

  18. New fieldtrip to the late and mid Devonian in the Ardennes from Belgium. This weekend I went with my friend Anthonie to a last minute field trip. The weather forecast were promising for that Sunday: gray but dry and decent temperatures so this was a possibility to make a last fieldtrip for this year. So Sunday morning I woke up early to leave for the fieldtrip… of course when I looked outside it was pouring. Still, hoping it could only get better I took the highway to Brussels, picked up my friend and we went to the direction of Marche en Famene for our first stop. It took us a one and a

  23. A few years ago I went collecting at my favorite fossil site here in NY. When I got to the main outcrop I soon noticed that there was a large pile of shale the fell away from the cliff. At first glance there were no fossils to be seen until I started splitting the larger pieces of shale. The only fossils I found were well preserved Eldredgeops and nothing else. In fact I found eight complete trilobites in this pile and it took me all day to process everything. After that I tried to repeat my first run at this layer but always come up with very meager results (partial Eldredgeops). Occasionall
