  1. Hardly anybody ever talks about the Cambrian fossils of the southern midcontinent (USA). They're super-underappreciated. Show us what you've got! Here's one to start us off: Thorax and pygidium of a trilobite, possibly Orygmaspis, typically referred to as "Orygmaspis cf. Orygmaspis llanoensis" but probably a different species altogether. Note the two pairs of macropleural spines marking the final thoracic segments. Davis Formation (late Cambrian: Furongian), south side of Highway 8, St. François County, Missouri.
  2. Well it has finally opened to the public on December 4rth. "The new Dawn of Life Gallery" at The ROM is perhaps the best gallery on the planet covering the earliest life to the emergence of land dwelling creatures. I was fortunate to have a tiny part in the new gallery having prepared a number of the museums specimens and also having donated and sold them some pieces . Here is a tiny taste of what you can see in the new gallery. It will not disappoint.

    Fissiletag's collection

    I started collecting around a year ago and have gained a small collection just wanted to show some the fossils off. Some I've found but most are bought. I will update if I get any new fossils. I can't post all the stuff at once because I need to take all the photos which takes some time. Thank you

    Remove glue from trilobites

    Hello, I have recently acquired three calymenes from Morocco, one of them was broken (or composited), and glued. To hide the glue, it was covered with mud, and after removing the glue I discovered an awful white glue. I tried to dissolve the glue by leaving the fossil in acetone for a whole day, then I left the it in alcohol for another whole day, and nothing happened. I finally soaked it in hot water but another time nothing happened. Does anyone know how to remove it? Thanks!
  6. Hello all, yesterday I led a trip to the Montour Fossil Pit with several other Swarthmore students as one last fun thing to do before final season begins and everyone gets consumed by work. We had 5 people in total including myself there and we had quite a good time. Currently I am in the process of receiving images of everyone’s finds and several students want their stuff ID’d so I have a post for that under the proper section to get their questions answered but I thought everyone would enjoy a more general trip-report style post, I will update this post with other people’s finds as they come

    Mystery Huge Anomalocaris Appendange?

    Hi, I have this mystery piece of what appears to be anomalocarid appendage of sorts. The problem is I did not receive any information with it and it came out of an old collection from Maine, Usa. I'm not to sure what else it could be from the appearance but I am also very uncertain of the exact species. The piece of a very laminated sparkly shale If I had to guess it could've came from either Burgess Shale, Utah, or Nevada but I not sure what locality it could be from so if anyone if familiar with these shales and can tell from the preservation it would be a huge help, thank you and looking fo

    Your "wish list"

    What is your "wish list"? My wish list, i think is this: 1) Morrison fm Sauropod tooth 2) Acrocanthosaurus (I know that is very, very rare and i will never get one) 3) Troodon tooth 4) Suchomimus 5) Ceratosaur tooth 6) Morrison theropod 7) Dimetrodon tooth 8) Tyrannosaurid tooth 9) Acheroraptor 10) Pliosaur tooth I write only about dinosaurs, reptiles and synapsid because if i will add more clade, is very hard to make the list.

  13. I will be visiting family around Christmas in Northern KY and was looking at trying out Trammel Fossil Park. This will be a new type of fossil hunting for me, as I am from SC and used to creek hunting for shark teeth and other sea fossils. Has anyone been to this park and would like to give opinions/advice/ pointers? Thanks for any help! I'm excited to look for some new types of fossils! ~Shannon
  14.

I had to cover the name of the seller from one of the images. Thanks!

    Beltzville State Park, PA

    Beltzville State Park is one of those rare parks where collecting is allowed. The adjacent federal land, owned and operated by the Corps of Engineers to operate the dam there, is accessible ONLY WITH A PERMIT. It is a functioning spillway and there is a gun range for the local police, so you and USACE need to make sure you are safe. With that important disclaimer out of the way, here's the good stuff! Beltzville is a very productive Middle Devonian site which includes the PA State Fossil, the trilobite Eldredgeops rana. Although no one in the group found any definite complete

    Rifle Range Cranbrook Trip Finds

    I embarked on a two day excavation trip in an attempt to find the raptorial appendage of Anomalocaris but only came home with about 300 Olenellus schucherti heads, some worm burrows, Wanneria bodies and heads, three Tuzoia, an inarticulate Brachiopod and some possible hyoliths, sponges and cyanobacteria. I am hoping to head back soon and do a paper on the locality! Here are a handful of my coolest finds!
  17. Hello. I wonder wht genus/species these are. In my opinion, it's Phacops, Drotops, Holladops. I have more questions. How exactly do you tell the difference between Reedops and Phacops?

  23. After a summer-long hiatus, I went out to look for some trilobites the other day. I wasn't finding much but the weather was just right: overcast, threatening rain clouds, periodic drizzle, a nice breeze, etc.. so I lost track of time. After a few hours and not finding much beyond the usual suspects,, I was getting ready to leave. I split one more and this block contained three Cerauromeros hydei cephali and upon taking a closer look seemed to show indications of being complete. Gravicalymenes, brachiopod 1 2 3. This one appears
  24. Hello! I have been lurking on this Forum for a while because I was very busy lately and still is! I found few fossils and I thought it might be trilobits- pieces of trilobite and also something else that I thought it seems 'fishy' and somewhat resemble a fish spine. These fossils are not found in situ but the bedrocks are Silurian. If they are trilobites, it would be my first time found one! I found this on the beach of Lake Erie, just east of Toledo, Ohio two weeks ago. Approximately half centimeter. Yesterday, I found this fossil on the
  25. Greetings everyone! Today I had the very special opportunity to collect in the Whetstone Gulf formation at Martin Quarry. I had a really great time and I just wanted to share some of my finds with you fine fossil forum folks! Enjoy
