  1. Hello, I had some time to look at a few more of the rocks from my collection trip into Wisconsin Platteville Grant County 1,2,3 First is a flat creek rock I gave a scrub and I think it has a trilobite cephalon. 4,5,Is a rock that appears to have a trilobites or it coiled be a broken bivalve? It's in a flakey rock so I haven't picked at it much. I included a side picture of the sediments. 6,7 I am pretty sure these are Chondrites? Or something similar? There are also some other bits in it 8 is a bit of hash plate but it has what I assume must be pyrite bits that ar

    Fossil Road Trip - Georgia, Texas

    Both my brother and I celebrated graduations this year - my brother graduated from college and I graduated from law school. In celebration of our graduations, we decided to take a 13-day road trip to see some of the United States after I had taken the bar exam but before I began work. Our journey ultimately took us through Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Dayton and Pittsburgh, before returning home. Our days were jam-packed, with us often not arriving at a hotel until 9/10pm, but along the way we did find some time to make a few quick stops to coll

    Elrathia?

    Hey all, I bought this trilobite from a seller today and was wondering if anyone could help me ID it. I'm pretty sure its from Utah, and I think it's an Elrathia, but I just want to get some other thoughts or opinions. In the bottom left there seems to be part of an agnostid, but I could be wrong. The seller said that they didn't know where it came from unfortunately.
  4. When I got home from work today one of my neighbors called and asked me to come over to his house, when I arrived I saw that he had 3 large containers of fossils, rocks, etc. He reminded me that several years ago I gave 2 of his kids some fossils and that they recently went through them and kept what they wanted and asked me if I wanted the others back, of course I said yes. I cannot tell you what they kept, but I think there were a couple Oreodont upper skulls and probably a couple other cool pieces. Here is the stuff I brought back home. Most of the trilobites I belie

    A few Fossils from recently

    Hello everyone, thanks for letting me join the site! I'm an amateur fossil hunter from Toronto who has made a few expeditions in the past months. I've found a few fossils of interest that I'd like some help identifying. Below are links to photos of the fossils in question on my iNaturalist page, along with some additional details. Thanks all in advance! The following were all found along the Don River in Toronto. 1. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68570190 2. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68573964 3. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/685701

    Does somebody know if the Jince quarry is still open? Greetings, Jasper
  7. Hey guys, I‘ve dug out some ’fossils‘ that I can't say for sure on a hill of Hubei Province,China. According to the local geological document,there’re exposed strata of middle Devonian and lower Permian around this area. There are some rocks with special patterns on it, which looks like trilobite and shellfish. On another rock, I can see a patch of dots, just like a tentacle of starfish. On this hillside, I also found some strange rocks in the shape of ’flat cylinder‘, with irregular patterns on them. I think it may be the remains of some kind of ancient creature.
  8. This is a work in progress, a kind of "master list" of trilobite species found in Ontario according to the available literature. In some cases, stratigraphy and taxonomic names have been modernized. Correlations are added where it is expected that species found in equivalent strata could be found in Ontario rocks. I have not included trilobites from the Hudson/James Bay area as there are a number of species there that still are in need of formal description. There are also a number of uncertainties that require more literature support before they are included here. I'll update this as more res

    4.5 inch Huntoniatonia tail!

    Most of Huntoniatonia trilobite specimens are 1.5 to 2.5 inch long. But this is only a tail from a trilobite of the genus, and it is 4.5 inch long! I have see it on a fossil website. Really monster trilo!
  12. Hey everyone, I just got a small lot of trilobites in the mail and I’m not really sure what I’m dealing with. It wasn’t very pricey for these 5 bugs plus a low grade Moroccan trilo that I know the ID of. So I figure I’ll buy now ask later lol. these 2 seem to be the same trilobite I’m just totally unsure from where. I’m guessing China maybe? pretty sure this is the well known Pseudogygities from Canada...or maybe it’s a similar genus? these almost look like cousins to Olenellus with the body plan. Seems like a Cambri
  13. Hi All, I have recently started my fossil collection, I am still figuring out what I really enjoy and what fits in my budget, but atleast trilobites really got my interest. I have some experience in collecting in general and I decided to buy nice specimens, especially for the common trilobites, rather than starting off with less preserved ones and having to upgrade them in the future. I want to share my first two trilobites: If anyone has any opinions and information about them, please do not hesitate to do so! My knowledge is still small in the fossil world.

    Fossils 2020

    With 2020 over with its now a good time to look back at the year. It was a decent year for fossils. I explored many new spots and was able to meet many new people, 6 feet apart of course. With the diagnosis of tendinitis i was not able to dig much this year but i was able to make the most of it. The first thing found since my last post was this epic bryozoan colony. It came out of the very top of the Wanakah shale and weighs almost 8 pounds. Im unsure of species but I think its pretty cool
  15. Well, since moving to Ottawa, I haven't had the chance to go out fossil hunting. There wasn't a whole lot of info on the web about the geology here. So my wife and I decided to buckle up and find a spot ourselves (without any hammers or chisels). We tend to be very lucky people, but I was surprised by the THOUSANDS of trilobites we came across in a matter of 20 minutes. We were on the shoreline of the Ottawa river, we found a certain type of shale that was just crawling with them. If any lucky soul goes to the spot where we left all the remnants of our hunt, they will sure be having a good day
  16. Hello, I've been recently fascinated by large isotelus trilobites. Does anyone on here own one and would like to show and talk about it, I would if I owned one but I don't see that happening anytime soon haha. This is the largest I've seen for sale so far that would've been 8 inches, would be nice to be able to find one but I don't have that luxury.

    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.
  19. Taking advantage of my time spent home, I finally got a couple of glass display cases to showcase fossil specimens from my collection. Finding ones that were affordable and blended with the style of our home, was challenge, and I took my time choosing. Despite a bit of criticism I receive from some of my fossil collecting friends, I am a generalist collector who doesn't specialize in anything. Having said that, my collection does feature some rare faunas; Devonian and Cretaceous bivalves, Lower and Middle Devonian brachiopods and gastropods, Cretaceous vertebrates, etc. The focus is largely on

    Hoppin Hill MA

    Hello, i’ve just recently found out about the possible trilobites that can be found near Hoppin Hill Massachusetts, does anybody have any information on where exactly these are and if they are available to the public?
  21. I received some Waldron Shale trilos for prep today. As always I made a brief examination of the matrix in search of any other fossils. I came across these, that I think may be cross sections of bugs? I should clarify that I have 0 experience with such cross sections. If they were, I'd assume the smaller one is the standard C. breviceps but the larger is curious. It's about 1.75 in/4.5 cm across and appears to have tubercles. What do you guys think, am I way off base or have I found something interesting?

    Trilobite partials, mid Devonian

    Cephalon partial from the needmore near winchester VA, middle Devonian. Looked familiar so I looked it up in the book I remembered it from and it lists it as unidentified, but resembling Lichas. As I was looking at it I noticed below it an illustration that looked just like a couple of tiny partials (pygidiums) I had saved from the same spot. Book lists these as unidentified too, but was published in 1991 so I was wondering if anyone here had any ideas. I’ve found a lot of damaged cephalon partials like this out there so if I know what the rest of the bug looks like, I can maybe keep myself fr
  25. Greetings everybody! While I was on my fishing trip last weekend I took some time to look for fossils. I collected at a couple of creeks exposing the Middle Ordovician Trenton Group in North-Central NY. I found lots of trilo-bits and other goodies! Enjoy
