  1. Georgia fossils By Thomas Thurman Georgia Trilobites 14J: Georgiaites, Tektites from Georgia. By Thomas Thurman Related publications: Harris, R. S., 2009, Upper Eocene Impact Stratigraphy of the Georgia Coastal Plain. Department of Geosciences, Georgia State University. Georgia Geological Society Guidebook, Volume 29, pgs 25-34, 2009 Georgia Geological Society guidebooks Harris, R.S., 2003, March.

  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.

    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?
  6. I was wondering if anyone had a good list on different species found in the Conasauga Formation? I've found a few references to trilobites, but I was especially curious about non-trilobite species such as brachiopods, sponges, non-trilobite arhtropods, etc.
  7. My grandson sent me photos of his little haul from today on his beach He is nearly 8 and loves checking his local beach. He has compared what he found with photos in his kid’s books of fossils. He’s wondered if these are trilobites and crinoids all- the last 2 photos are the same find. He has been asked to show some of his fossils in a special exhibition in the Laing Art gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne called “These are Our Treasures “ which will coincide with the display of the Lindisfarne Gospels. He feels quite excited by this!
  8. I was able to take another trip to the Leighton Formation today! It's been a while since I've been able to visit (months and months), but I've finally been able to. Unfortunately, during the winter the place is completely covered in snow and ice. Not really the best collecting conditions... My last trip there was in August of last year, and the spring has been very busy. Today it was time. It was supposed to be overcast with a chance of rain, but it came out sunny and bright. Absolutely beautiful day out. The collecting was very g
  9. Hello! I saw this Dicaranarus monstrosus fossil online, I want to know if it's authentic or not. Thank you for any help!
  10. Hello all! I'm looking to do some more fossil hunting this summer and I would love to find a good spot for trilobites. I am in western Maryland, and am willing to travel up to 2 hours. Most of the sites I've searched so far have been largely dominated by brachiopods and crinoids (which are still cool), but I really would love to find other species. If anyone has a good site which has trilobites (or anything else super cool) please let me know!! Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! PS: I understand wanting to keep your spot secret, so if you don't want to

    Out & About

    I've been out quite a bit this season, but still haven't had my "wow" trip-maker yet. Due to various situations, most of my digging has been very local, with one away trip to Quebec. For local sites, I've been prospecting new spots and doing due diligence on old ones, too. Around me is Devonian, and more particularly the ugly portions of the Devonian of Ontario that are parsimonious, tough, sometimes lacking in bedding planes, occasionally blank or cherty, and generally displaying fossils as they might appear after being thoroughly whipped in a Ninja blender. But, hey, it's always

    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
  13. An article published today has identified evidence of mating claspers on trilobites from the Burgess Shale. The best analogy would be to current day horseshoe crabs. The significance the authors cited is that it shows sexual dimorphism (males and females of the same species look different) was already well developed in the Cambrian. Their conclusion was based on morphological analysis of the limbs under the 7th thoracic and 1st pygidial segments, which differ from the others and do not reflect feeding adaptations. The theory is that the only explanation is that they have been modified as clasp
  14. Hello FF! I’ve recently taken home some neat fossils from the Waldron Shale in southern Indiana. I’m new to taking fossil collecting seriously, and thus have little experience in trying to properly prep them. For some, the surrounding matrix often crumbles when I take so much as a dental pick to them, though a toothbrush and soapy water hardly yield results after scrubbing for a while. For others, I can hardly get anything to work (such as the large trilobite mold below). The tools I have present are a dental pick, a toothbrush, water (and dish detergent), a small chisel, a hammer, and a jug o

    DSR Trip

    Today I had the pleasure of fossil hunting Deep Springs Road with @Dean Ruocco, Alan Lang, Cynthia, and Marcus. This was my first trip to hunt in NY, while I was hoping for a Dipleura, I was able to see a nice big one be found (I will let Dean post it) Additionally I had some fun take homes that are not too common for my PA honeyhole. The day mostly consisted of Dean, Marcus, and Myself cutting in a bench and working it hard. Cynthia was wearing down some of our spoil piles and providing insight into what exactly we were looking at. Alan was generous letting us use his t

    Haragan Formation Trilobites

    Anybody know the species of these two trilobites?
  17. 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.
  18. Booking a family trip to northern Arkansas! Finding a trilobite is on my daughter and my “dream come true!” list! Any recommended destinations or places to look would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  19. I am going to be in Missouri for a few days and I am looking for places to hunt for trilobites. Thanks in advance.
  20. Hi everyone Coming from Maryland and going to have a few days near Oklahoma City over the next week and am looking for a few sites to do some collecting and make some video lessons for my Elementary age students. I had a successful few dAys near lake texoma in early Covid and would like to find a few other spots if someone could help me out. Ideally I’d like to find a decent trilobite area and someone who could show me around and be willing to talk to the camera for my students’ though just pointing me to a formation and a general area would also help. Also interested in Amonites a

  22. Took another trip to the Mahantango (Devonian) over the weekend. Went with @Dean Ruocco While my haul was not too terrific, I did manage to grab some stuff to use as trade pieces / donor pieces. Dean did manage to get some nice trilobites but I will let him post those Brachiopod plate: Normally I would leave this as they are a dime a dozen at my locality but figured I would grab this to give to a friend who is trying to get some material to use in a display cabinet at the college he teaches at. Trilobites: Again not the best stuff but alwa
  23. Hey everyone! So recently I purchased some unprepared Moroccan trilobites. I am having a very hard time preparing them and am making a lot of mistakes. And I was just wondering if these maybe are not the best for practice for a beginner, or is it just me? Thanks, @fossilhunter21
