  1. Carbondale PA

    Hello everyone! I am in the process of investigating the fossil site in Carbondale PA but can't seem to find the exact place where to go or any directions, there were some things I saw on the forum but they look like they are on private property. If anybody knows about it new insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Fossil sites around CT

    Hi everyone, I am new to this form and would like to know if there are any fossil sites in the general area around Connecticut. I myself live around Danbury CT and am not sure what places I could visit that are at most 4 hours of driving away from here. I have read about sites in PA like St.Clair and Carbondale but I believe both are closed now. Red Hill is also around that area but I don't know how I would get permission to go there. Also I don't really have a preference on type of fossil plants, fish, invertebrates, everything is welcome. Thank you
  3. Edestus teeth

    From the album Sharks and fish

    The shark relative is genus of eugenodontia holocephalid from the Carboniferous-Pennsylvanian age Anna shale formation, Carbondale group, found in different Illinois coal mines. I dont know(yet)which mine these were found in. This unidentified species is of the "vorax-serratus- crenulatus-heinrichi" or "E. heinrichi group", with the teeth being more of a standard triangular shape, as opposed to being thinner and pointed at a forward angle as in the "E. minor" group http://www.thefossilforum.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=501751
  4. Carbondale, PA

    I took to trip to the Poconos this weekend and stopped by Carbondale for a hunt (thanks Jeffrey P for the info on it)! I think I did well and had a really fun trip. It was a little tricky to get there but definitely worth it! I found several fossils ferns and other plants as well as fossil bark - I'm not 100% done going though them yet, but these are my favorites of the trip. On the last two, I would appreciate any info. on what they may be. Thanks! ..
  5. Fossils to be identified

    Here's some Carbondale (llewellyn formation) finds, any ideas? note: sorry about the oblique angles on some, it's hard to see striations on some without it. Obverse of last one
  6. Weird "7" shaped fossil

    Here's another fossil from Carbondale, shaped like a check, or an L or a 7. Two in fact, I split the rock and it's inside it as well, so its thick. Any ideas?
  7. Sigillaria log?

    Hello everyone, this is another Carbondale find. Tell me what you think, more pictures from different angles can be taken.
  8. Carboniferous plants in need of ID

    Here's the first of my finds from Carbondale. It's a plant of some sort, Pennsylvanian. I have a few, these have positive and negatives, some seem to have a few sprouting from one center. I'm new to this time period, so I'm letting you guys ID this for me. Ones a little broke after the ride back, I guess I'll use some super glue.
  9. Trip to Carbondale

    First of all, thanks to @GordonC for alerting me of the Carbondale sites existence, and secondly Jeff at this site for giving me directions, as well as further information. Okay, so being in the area, about 45 minutes away in lake Wallenpaupack, I decided to take a trip to Carbondale. This trip turned out fantastic, at least I think it did (I've never hunted in Carboniferous stuff, so I may be over excited over what I've found). The information online is sparing, so I'm gonna give a rundown on it here so others can hunt. First you drive to this location . Go between the third and fourth apartment buildings on the right. You will see gravel. Walk behind the dumpster to the brush, about here. Then turn left and walk on the cleared path there. All websites say it's a road, but it's a little to think of driving on. Walk to the end on the path to a clearing, and you will see piles of sediment from the mine. This is what I searched in, it's very fossiliferous. It seems there is a larger hill a little further that's completely made of trainings, but I couldn't find a way to get to it. The actual site I hunted at is here. Go at your own risk, as the place is sketchy, I had one encounter with the local law enforcement. He had no idea of the fossils. The site is Llewellyn formation, late middle to late Pennsylvanian ( which is late Carboniferous). I found lots of logs and calamites and branches and things I have never seen before. Some I'm particularly proud of, and they have put everything else I have collected to shame. I may try for FOTM, but I doubt I'll win, competition just keeps getting tougher and tougher! Y'all will be seeing lots of Carboniferous ID requests from me soon. Here's some pictures of how to get to the site. I didn't take as many as I would have liked because I was excited to find things, to my despair I forgot my bucket, so I was stuck carrying heavy things back to the car. Well, hope this helps people! Happy hunting! Here's one of the piles A smaller one of course
  10. Scale Tree

    Kathleen B. Pigg of the University of Arizona notes that this "stem subsurface pattern that is sometimes called 'rabbit tracks'. The double track you see is probably a result of a pair of air channels that accompany the leaf trace through the cortex. The vertical ribs are produced by an increase of bark through secondary tissue production." The pair of sepicemns in the first image are the positive and negative impressions of the same piece. The second image is a detail from the same specimen.
