Trilobite Sites Near Western Maryland
crimsonfossils posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello all! I'm looking to do some more fossil hunting this summer and I would love to find a good spot for trilobites.

Fossil Sites near Blacksburg VA

Any ideas as to what genus it belongs to? Hmmmm this was clearer
