  1. Interesting assortment of fossils

    Last year while fossil hunting in a creek in Chenango Forks, New York I came across an interesting looking rock. The rock was primarily made up of gastropods with a few bivalves and brachiopods. It was a very crumbly, silty rock. I believe it is upper Devonian because I’ve only ever found upper Devonian rocks at that creek but I’ve been unable to find anything close to what I found in Karl A. Wilson’s Field Guide to the Devonian Fossils of New York
  2. More Big Brook what?

    Found at big brook they appear to be the same but same what? Thanks again
  3. A rock with a lot of life in it

    Hi! Found this interesting rock on my walk today with a lot of remains. Sone of them I can try to ID (I see lots of crinoids), but there is also new staff. location: Tompkins county, NY, USA period: Devonian size:1-2 cm Rock compositions: shale with layers of remains-rich material Items of interest: On the last picture what are the comb-like structure and two things that remind me of sea acorn? Thank you!
  4. From the album Middle Devonian

    Lingula spatulata Lingulid Brachiopod Middle Devonian Moscow Formation Windom Shale Hamilton Group Deep Springs Road Quarry Earlville, N.Y.
  5. Wowowow I was very surprised to find all this amazing stuff today at my favourite river bank fossils spot of the Etobicoke creek. I managed to snag a whole lot of stuff today, some Orthoconic Nautiloids, Brachipods and what I believe to be the nicest tentaculite I've ever seen!!! The fossils are from the Georgian Bay Formation and they were found in the broken up "rock fields" next to the creek. This is going to be one of my longer posts, so I will have to split them up into section. The full haul, with the typical estwing 22 ounce rock pick (33 cm from bottom of the handle to the top of the hammer end for anyone who doesn't own one). First lets start with the usual: Them cone boys, aka Orthoconic Nautiloids. I believe all of the following to be Treptoceras crebriseptum.
  6. It was an all day outing on a perfect spring day in Central Upstate New York. Al Tahan and I visited a small private quarry where the Middle Devonian Oatkacreek Formation Mottville Member, part of the Marcellus Shale and the lower Hamilton Group is exposed. It's been about a year since I visited the site which I've been coming to for the past five years and it was Al's first visit. Erosion had broken down almost all of the pieces of shale which covered much of the site on previous visits. However a lot of fossils here, preserved in calcite are weathered free from the matrix and surface collecting can be very productive. This is by far the best site I've been to for the gastropod, Bembexia sulcomarginata. There were dozens strewn about the site. I couldn't resist picking up a few adding to my already extensive Bembexia collection. Brachiopods were also plentiful, especially the large spiriferid, Spinocyrtia granulosa (upper right). I couldn't help adding this inflated example to my large collection. Upper left is Mucrospirifer murcronatus, certainly one of the most abundant and distinctive Middle Devonian brachiopods in New York. Lower left is Protoleptostrophia perplana, a Strophomenid.
  7. Rickard Hill Road 5/20/20

    Today I was able to get out to the outcrop along Rickard Hill in Schoharie, New York. I didn’t find a ton of interesting things because I was looking in a more crystalline layer of the Kalkberg formation that had less abundant fossils. I found a handful of nice orthid, spiriferid, and atrypid brachiopods and one fenestellid bryozoan. Next time I go I’m going to try and get into a different, more fossiliferous layer because the crystalline rock is hard to break and when it does it breaks randomly, often damaging the fossils.
  8. Yesterday I was able to get out to Onondaga County in central NY. While I was there I got a chance to do some fossil hunting at two locations. The first was in Pompey Center, NY near Pratt’s Falls. The second location was a creek in Delphi Falls. The rock at both of these locations was the Skaneateles formation. I was able to get into a different formation at the second spot that was more shaly and had better preservation. This was my first time fossil hunting in the middle Devonian and I was amazed with the number of bivalves I found. (I’ve never found one in the lower Devonian near me). As well as bivalves I was able to find a few very well preserved gastropods, some brachiopods, a bunch of ostracods, and what I believe is a partial phyllocarid carapace.
  9. Last weekend I got a chance to do some fossil hunting in a creek in Greene, New York. I am a unsure if the exact formation I was in but I know it was upper Devonian. Brachiopods were quite abundant, especially spiriferid ones. I also found a couple nice bivalves and some bryozoans/corals.
  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
  11. Hi! Please excuse us if we aren’t following decorum with our photo sizes, staging, etc. Since the quarantine has us unexpectedly homeschooling, we took our 5th grader to collect some fossils and though I’m sure they are pretty basic, I’m having a hard time helping her ID all of them. Any info is appreciated, as we are absolute beginners. ☺️ These were collected at a random roadcut in northern PA, another in West Virginia, and also at Beltsville Lake (where we searched all day for a trilobite until I realized I probably don’t even know what the fragments would look like).

  13. Sunday was the warmest and most pleasant day so far this spring. I decided on a solo venture up north to Schoharie County, N.Y. My destination was two road cut sites which expose the Lower Devonian Kalkberg Formation, part of the Helderberg group. The primary attractions here are the abundance and diversity of fossils, and very good preservation. The first road cut site is immense and I spent about three hours surface collecting. Most of my finds were brachiopods, some very nice specimens of Leptanena rhomboidalis, Discomyorthis oblata, Meristella, sp., Costistroponella sp., and a variety of Rhynchonellids. Also found a gastropods internal mold, an Enterolasma strictum, a rogose coral, and a 8 by 7 inch Favosites helderbergiae, a tabulate coral colony.

  19. Brachiopod ID, + Bryozoan?

    Hello all. I'm an amateur fossil hunter, so this might not seem that exciting, but I was really happy to find these four rocks with what I assume are brachiopods in them. These were found on a small, rocky beach in western Michigan (so rocky that most people would probably prefer not to swim). The specimens vary in size quite a bit, with the largest one being about 2 cm (this one is also one of the most well-preserved). In one of the rocks I see some lacy-looking material which I believe is probably a bryozoan frond, but I'm not too sure, so if anyone could confirm that too, I'd appreciate it. In the last few pictures, I wet a couple of the specimens themselves to hopefully make them easier to see. I hope these pics are good enough. If anyone could give me info on what exactly these little guys are, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  20. A few weeks ago, just when we were inundated with the spring muddy season, I stopped at a site that features Decorah Shale with a little Platteville mixed in. If you haven't collected in the Decorah Shale, let me say it stays MUDDY even in a drought!! The site had been worked over for a finish grade. This means the site will soon be lost to vegetative overgrowth. So I proceeded to collect a 5 gallon bucket of mucky matrix to clean and examine at home, in case the weeds invade quickly. Here are some select finds from that bucket.
  21. On this my 79th Birthday, I have a desire to reconnect with some fossils that I found while in high school near my home at the time in Ellwood City Pa. Those fossils are long gone donated to schools. I recall finding a number of brachiopods and what I believed to be a shark tooth (never had it formally ided) If anyone has a collection from the Vanport, I would be delighted to see pictures posted and maybe when life resumes trade for some fossils. The Vanport was used in making Portland cement and there were a number of companies. Later in life I tried to collect again but the quarries I knew were filled in. I tried looking on line to see fossils from the Vanport but I did not have any success. Any information anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated. Stay safe out there.

  23. Spring of 2020 We took advantage of the time off and the break in weather to hunt one of our favorite streams here in Western New York. This was just a spring scouting mission to see what was exposed after the ice and snow has melted. Some of the more interesting finds were a crinoid crown (very rare for this locality) possibly Logocrinus, Spinocyrtia granulosa open with both valves, Orthospirifer marcyi, a large Megastrophia concava cleaned by nature with epibionts, and 3 small nearly complete Greenops. We also found many small Favosites coral colonies, large Heliophyllum corals, and 8 different species of brachiopods. Happy Collecting!
  24. Brachiopods from Germany ID

    it's my 4 days of quarantine and i thought it was time to put a label on few unknow brachiopods bags:) I received these in two bags as a gift with a very strange label inside ,it could be a mix from various sites,i try to make few "Familly"of species,there was also three othe fossils inside a bag.perhaps somebody could help?
  25. US Brachiopods ID

    I received from the states these brachiopods,but no ID and without the site ,perhaps it's a kind of Platystrophia?
