  1. Last month in an effort to relieve some of the late summer boredom, I went to Yankeetown to search the spoil islands at the mouth of the river. I was specifically looking for limestone cobbles that might be protecting examples of the large Eocene sand dollar Periarchus floridanus. I've worked these islands a number of times before so my expectations were not high, but I had hoped the high tides since my last visit might have mixed things up a bit. I did find a couple cobbles with edges of sand dollars showing, but with obvious damage. Since I have nothing but extra time on my hands, I took the
  2. While I was looking for sea biscuits in Yankeetown, I found this. At first I thought it was an actual peanut. Lol I tried doing some research on it but can't really find that much information about what it actually is. So I'm hoping y'all will have some more suggestions or details. The closest I've found online is it being a double concretion. It's relatively small compared to similar ones I've found online. It's a little over 3cm long and less than 2cm wide. Not magnetic. Thank you for any and all help!

    Yankeetown Echnoid Hunt

    Last week I had the opportunity to be in Florida so I made my way out to the Withlacoochee bay trail for a little while to look for some loose echnoids. I didn't get any pictures of the finds in situ... poor planning on my part. Here is everything after I got home. They still need to be cleaned up. I believe I saw people soaked them in vinegar and gently use a toothbrush to get the sand and miscellaneous debris off? I also found the tiny 'clam' shell amongst the loose limestone chunks where where I found the echnoids, not su
  4. HI Im not sure if this is the right place to ask. We are going to Yankeetown, Florida for chritmas break and I was wondering if someone could suggest where we could go to do some fossil hunting and what we could look for? It is myself, my wife and two teenage boy, but my wife might not come with us.. We are novice hunters, we have hunted several time in the Peace river, once in South Carolina. We will have a trowel and I made a few sifters. We wont have a boat. I saw someone had hunted Econoids in that area. We have never looked for them but if someone
  5. Although the Peace River stayed diggable through the end of June this year, I made my last trip on the 20th and was looking forward to the clear spring fed waters of the Santa Fe the following week. Heavy rains in North Florida and Georgia spoiled that plan by sending the Santa Fe to flood stage. I hadn't been to the Yankeetown spoil islands in several months and I always enjoy spending a few hours there. I intended to do a quick surface scan for the smaller less common echinoids, but was primarily looking for limestone cobbles that contained the large sand dollar Periarchus floridanus. This l
  6. We are both very inexperienced college kids and have not had a whole lot of luck so far. Just the occasional shark tooth and Seabiscuit. I thought it might be worth while seeing if anyone around here wanted to show us some cool spots. I'm sure we could make it worth your while lol

    Looking for a publication

    I've lost a publication dealing specifically with Yankeetown fossils (Lower Ocala Limestone, Inglis Member) when my hard drive crashed. I can't seem to track it down using what I think are logical search parameters. If anyone can work backwards, it is the document that describes Velates floridans from this site. I'd appreciate the help.
  8. The winter of 2018-2019 was rough on folks from Minnesota, people who normally judge their self esteem on surviving mother nature's cold and snowy fury. So when the time came to depart for my snowbird trip to Florida, I could not have been more excited to go. Here is the local landscape as we left. Then on arrival to the Sunshine State. What a stark contrast. I could never give up my winters for this , as nice as it is to visit. Hunting for fossil treasures in Florida is usually limited to a single day per trip for me. But

    Yankeetown, FL Echinoid Hunting!

    Hey guys! Here's something a little different from me... Echinoid Hunting! This was an extremely fun and productive fossil hunt, finding some of the oldest fossils Florida has to offer. In this video you even get a tour of my fossil-filled vehicle, which could have been a whole video in itself hahaha! You may also notice a quality change. We got some sweet new gear! Give the video a watch if you're interested and have some time!
  10. In an effort to do something while the Peace and the Santa Fe decline from flood stage, I went back to Yankeetown to look for echinoids without any real expectations. Tide was low and the wind was strong out of the east so the water level was very low. Screening was pretty much out of the question without serious back strain, so I spent a few hours on hands and knees looking between all the footprints for something that holiday week hunters may have missed. I brought home nice examples of several of the more common species including Eupatagus antillarium ( only 5 examples which, I think, shows
  11. I took a quick trip to Yankeetown, FL this week because, although I've been there a number of times, it is one of the few locations I know of that isn't under water this year. I screen sifted for a couple hours and got some nice examples of echinoids already in my collection. I'm paying more attention to these sand dollars and sea biscuits since the variety in my collection is growing and my contribution to the Univ. of FL Museum really piqued my interest. I was hoping I could get proper species names for the specimens in the following photos. These would be from Ocala Limestone, Inglis Format
  12. As I eluded to in a separate posting, my wife and I recently joined the FPS (Florida Paleontological Society) and joined them for their fall field trip and meeting in the High Springs area of north central Florida. It was a 320 mile drive (one way) but well worth the effort. It also gave us lots of time to listen to a stash of podcasts to pass the time on the long drive. During the field trip to Haile Quarry I found my first Eupatagus antillarum (on my fossil bucket list for a few years) and several other nice smaller echinoids. During the FPS meeting in the evening Jack (Shellseeker) introduc
