    Wisconsin Trilobites?

    Hey all! I'm new to this site, but I've been interested in fossils all my life. I kind of joined this forum on a whim since I've been doing a lot of internet surfing recently. I'm on a quest of sorts to try and find any trilobite remains in my state, (I live in Green Bay, WI) but I'm not having much luck. I've been all over the internet looking for any known collecting sites in Wisconsin. I'm well aware of places like Fossil Park in Sylvania, Ohio, and I'd absolutely love to have a chance to visit Penn-Dixie in northwest New York, but I don't really have the time, so I've been trying to f
  2. Hello! I got a few bags of rocks from Home Depot the other week to use for a project, and when I was washing them off I found a couple neat things. Unfortunately the bags were thrown away and the garbage was picked up yesterday so I can't check the bags for the quarry locations, but the bags were purchased in Wisconsin so I would reckon the rocks are from either Wisconsin, Minnesota or Illinois. Here are both next to a tape measure. I'm pretty sure the left one is some kind of brachiopod but I have no idea what the striped one is or if it's even a fossil: A

    Vertebrae fossil Door County, WI

    My son found, what looks to us to be, a backbone in the rock, in the shallow water of a beach in Door County, WI. The first picture is the fossil in question, the others are other things we found interesting but less convinced they are fossils. I would estimate it to be about 15 to 18 inches in length. Any idea what it could be? Thanks in advance for your time.

    Bone On Lake Michigan

    I’m not sure if this is fossilized or not, but I was hoping I might be able to find more info on it here!

    South Central WI ID Help

    Newer to fossils. Been searching the same location for awhile now and it's the first time coming across one like this. Just seems so interesting to me. Maybe it's just a rock? Idk any help is appreciated.

    Stromatoporoid or Stromatolite?

    Need help confirming what I found. This speciman was found in Milwaukee, WI. I found it in some loose landscape rock around the building I work in. Unfortunately I don't have a ruler on me right now but it's about 2 inches long and 3/4 inches wide. Originally I thought it was agate but someone in my rock group on Facebook says it looks to be silicified stromatoporoid. After doing a Google search I came across stromatolites also. So I'm not sure which one it could be. It's a beautiful specimen. What looks to be quartz on the bottom and what I originally thought was agate surrounding it. Any ide
  7. Registration has opened from the 7th International Conference on Trilobites & Their Relatives in Cincinnati, Ohio. This is a four day conference (including a mid-conference field trip), plus pre- and post-conference field trips. The pre-conference field trip is to the Upper Cambrian of Wisconsin, and the post-conference field trip is to the Ordovician-Devonian of New York. The latter looks like it will visit some very enticing spots (unfortunately it is quite expensive!). The mid-conference field trip will visit several classic Cincinnatian sites, including possibly the famous Mt. Orab Tri
  8. Does anyone have experience with the Middle Ordovician brachiopod faunas of the upper Mississippi Valley? I came across this odd fragment in rocks from a quarry in south-central Wisconsin. To my knowledge they are known in North America only from the Appalachian Basin (Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Quebec, Newfoundland), not the interior basins like the Illinois basin. Has anybody else seen this critter or similar in the Platteville? As far as I am aware, the only species documented from the Platteville that looks anything like this is Megamyonia unicostata, but that h

    Lycopod From Wisconsin?

    Brachiopod

    Last week we took a ride to Lake Michigan to do a short search before the weather turned bad. The previous day had strong winds with large waves and I thought we might find some interesting things. We found plenty of Favosites, Halysites, and Rugose corrals as well as some of the other usual finds. The one unusual find was what I believe to be an internal mold of a Pentamerus oblongus brachiopod. I don't find many brachiopods and as such I'm not 100% sure on my ID. Please confirm or correct. Thanks in advance. Jim
  11. 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

    Wisconsin amber?

    I recently found a piece of petrified wood that has amber bubbling on the top and embedded into the piece. I found it in a region where people have told me there is no petrified wood. I know that it is. I have seen quite a few pieces of petrified wood from Arkansas and a few with amber embedded. This was found in Wisconsin in the Mississippi river valley. Any thoughts?

    fossil ID (WI)

    Hey all! I took my little brother out fossil hunting on the lakeshore, I myself am no expert but it's been a lot of fun- we found a number of crinoid and brachiopod fossils and some cool rocks besides. Theres a couple that stumped us though, I've been googling references but nothing looks similar to me. It looked to me like some kind of coral, the second one might just be a rock with some holes in it, but they appear in a fairly regular pattern that intrigued me. Any input is appreciated!

    Any ideas what this could be?

    Found this near a lake in polk county Wisconsin. There seems to be a somewhat unusual pattern on it. Can anybody identify this? I can get more photos and dimensions if needed. Thanks a bunch!
  15. Hello everyone! I recently purchased two fossils, they were both sold to me as Ordovician the crinoid being from Wisconsin and the brachiopod from Illinois. @connorp has told me in a different thread that the dolomites of the region also preserve Silurian fossils and that these look much more like that. Doing a quick Google search I did find something that looks very similar to the crinoid I have, but I don't know enough about these animals or the area they come from to be certain of the ID. Here is the crinoid in question: To me this calyx looked quite similar t

    Help ID'ing "tooth"

    I am new to this forum and have very little knowledge of fossils. I would like to know if this rock that I found several years ago in northwest Wisconsin is a fossil or just an interesting rock. Thank you.

    Wisconsin Fossil

    A while back I found this fossil in Wisconsin, unfortunately I don't remember where exactly I was when I found it. So far I have been unable to easily identify it. It is about 2 inches across, and about an inch tall. I can post more pictures if needed.

    Some really cool fossils from my land!

    My collection of some really cool fossils on the land most of the fossils I have in my collection are bought so it’s always nice to find something actually in the field. Now my main goal with this post is to try to identify the trilobite I found today although it only has the head piece, it clearly shows the eye and part of the gabella. The horn coral which are the sort of conical fossils should help identify the age of the rocks. if anyone else can give an ID on the rest of the fossils that would help thanks. By the way these were all found in Dane County, Wisconsin. (PS) I have no clue what

    Fossil Identification in Western Wisconsin

    *Higher resolution and many more images linked below to Google Drive for a clear view* Fossil: Large limestone rock containing hundreds of marine fossils and with what appears to be a bone roughly 3cm in diameter.

Location: Found 10 miles from the Mississippi River near Ellsworth, Wisconsin USA (Western Wisconsin) in a low valley area that looks like an ancient river bed. Rock Measurements: Roughly 15cm x 28cm My Understanding of Geology and Paleontology: 2/10 *There are
  20. 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
