  1. Day Two ; Locality Two (or Seven if you include Day One) Prepping and Retail, Erfoud, Morocco. 20th February 2019 Erfoud town itself is famous for its beautiful fossils, its skilled fossil preppers and also for its wide variety of fakes, composites, good and bad repair jobs and utter frankenfossils. A large percentage of fossils from Morocco that are available in shops and on the internet the world over originate from here or pass through the place. Fossils are sent here for prepping from all over the south and then sent from here everywhere in the country and abro

    trilobite species identification

    can anyone help me identify this trilobite? it will soon be mine but it was mislabelled as Morocconites malladoides which it’s certainly isn’t. have been told it might be a Reedops cephalotes
  3. I've recently been looking over the geologic formations in Illinois and I found one that's a bit interesting - it's a Cambrian period outcrop but it seems to be a bit small, only found in parts of Ogle and Lee County, Illinois. http://ebeltz.net/firstfam/1stfam.html https://www.osti.gov/servlets/purl/1202269 https://ilstratwiki.web.illinois.edu/index.php/Cambrian_System I haven't heard of a lot of fossils coming from this area so I'm wondering if anyone's been fossil hunting in that region of Illinois before and how common are Cambrian Fossils fr

    The Daily Fossil Record

    Inspired to act by Jamie‘s @JamieLynn and their “fossil a day” thread. I been thinking about creating a digital visual catalogue of my collection for a long time now . Been very dyslexic this is a difficult task to undertake. After seeing Jamie’s thread I thought one fossil a day will just take a sort time to photograph, collate and post, making this more achievable task . I will also keep a digital copies for my records. Posting on the forum means that other members can see my small collection and help me if needed with incorrect IDs or names that have changed . The forum has been really

  6. Here is a thread to share some of your rarest partials that if whole would've been incredible specimens, but you know how it is sometimes... Yet they still amazing to own a piece of. I will start off by sharing a piece of the tail of a Probolichas Kristiae, an incredibly unique looking rare lichid trilobite from Oklahoma that would've of been incredible if whole of course yet this piece still has amazing detail and I am more that happy to own

    Trilobite ID

    I was hoping someone could identify these two trilobites. I’ve had them as long as I can remember but I never got them ID’d and I’m terrible with trilobites. I have no information on the time period or the location. If higher quality photos are needed I can take them.
  8. It's been a long while since I've posted on here. I haven't been able to collect much lately, but I recently went out to some new haunts and came back with some pretty intriguing stuff I'll hopefully get to follow up on later. I'll start off with an interesting discovery I've had recently. The outcrop exposes rocks stretching from the upper(?) Brallier Formation to the middle(?) Foreknobs Formation. Although I tried searching in the past for brittle star trace fossils, I was mostly unsuccessful in this regard, and over time my interest in it shifted to the much more fossiliferous
  9. Hi all Just a quick question , I have been very interested in the material from Mazon Creek since I won a great auction lot from Ralph that included a few fine specimens . While looking today online I spotted a trilobite pygidium that was labelled Mazon Creek it looks like the right type of siderite concretions but it could be from some where else . So what do we think? I don’t think they was native to Mazon creek but maybe transported there by floods ?
  10. A few weeks ago I went on a fossil hunting trip to Albany County. I was hunting in the New Scotland formation which is lower Devonian in age. It was very quick and easy to collect in and the dry dredging technique was quite useful. The rock was a very thin shaly limestone which could break easily but many of the fossils had been silicified, making it easy to pop them out of the rock. I found many different species of brachiopods, some gastropods, lots of corals and large bryozoa and a few trilobites

    Madison County meetup

    Hello all! Today I met up with my good friends @Dean Ruocco and @KompsFossilsNMinerals to collect a couple of Hamilton Group sites in Central NY. The first site we went to was the famous Deep Springs Road site, and then we hit a second location for a little while afterwards. All around it was a good day of collecting, with everyone having success in the trilobite department.

    Madison County Trip W/ Forum Friends

    Hi all, yesterday I met up with @Nautiloid and @Dean Ruocco in Madison County to collect some bugs at DSR and another site nearby. After exchanging some gifts we got to work collecting, you can see some of @Nautiloid’s finds on his post here… Dean and I got to work creating benches in a promising area whilst @Nautiloid checked out an area at the site I had mentioned to him prior to the trip. Straight off the bat we were all finding some decent bugs, here were the only Greenops I found yesterday. I always like

  15. Well took a trip about a week ago ran in to another member of TFF we both did well. I’m holding up on prepping until I get some new bits in. However here is a preview of what I collected think I even scored a whole one time will tell.
  16. I recently stumbled upon this informative gem of an html article discussing modern trilobite lookalikes. Being a trilobite-cephalon myself, I found it fascinating, so I wanted to share it with you all! The article: Trilobite imposters

    Field Collection at St. Leon

    On my eighth trip to the locality, I collected fossils at the famous St. Leon roadcut. Exposed were the Waynesville and Liberty formations, which date to the immense coral reefs of the upper Ordovician, or 450 ±5 MYA. The site was heavily picked, its erosive forces slowed during Indiana's summer heat. My drops of sweat evaporated on the sun-tempered limestone faster than I could count to ten. Despite the setbacks, acquisitions were generous. Best for last. Behold my brachiopods. The top row is Strophomena sp., the top-left sample demonstrating encrusting bryozoan. The second row is

    Fossil Preparation Services?

    Has anyone on here had a good experience with fossil preparation services? I’m not asking for specific companies (as I know this might be a breach of TFF community rules), just wanting to know if anyone has had good results with fossil prep companies in general. I’ve got a couple of nice-ish Devonian trilobite partials in need of prep and am too impatient to prep them myself. Also full air scribe setups are extremely expensive, this isn’t even taking into account that there are no spare rooms in my house for a fossil prep workshop. Meaning, I would either have to build onto the house or build

    Trilobite and shell indentification help NY

    Just started searching for fossils since moving to central New York. These are some finds from Madison County. I was hoping for some help, I know they are trilobites, but not the species. There were also some shells I was curious about. Thanks.
  21. FINALLY getting around to posting about my first time ever fossil hunting in Oklahoma! Went on an extended weekend with the Paleontological Society of Austin to a variety of locales in Central OK - places I have heard about, read about and dreamed about going! I finally made it! And it was so very worth the drive, even if I did end up with a stupid cold the last two days (the drive home was a little....weird. Cold "fugue" makes for interesting driving- I really don't remember much of it, which is either good or bad....) But the FOSSILS! I've never hunted the Ordovician and Siluria

    Nowadaga Triarthrus

    Found these in mid June 2022 in broken up shale on the bank of Nowadaga Creek in east-central New York. The cephalon head was found 1 foot away from that body. To make the image “pop”, I doused a rag with a few drops of mineral oil and gently rubbed it on the shale. Unsure what the actual trilobite species is. Triarthrus eatoni, beckii, other?
