  1. Deb and I came back from three half-days at the Penn Dixie site with an ok mix of finds despite some weather and site challenges. This is usually an ideal time for us to get out and collect as Monday was our Thanksgiving, and my university has implemented a new Fall Reading Break. However, not everything went according to plan! This trip report will mostly be in situ pictures (when we had time to take them, or it was not too rainy to risk it), and a few preliminary shots of what was found. So, story mode first... Day 1 We arrived around 1 pm and left before sunset. The site itself is vastly different from when we were on the big TFF dig back in April. After the Digging with the Experts, a lot of overburden seemed to have been dumped on areas we had been working. About 5 or more feet of the stuff, actually. Usually one will find a spot where a bench has been started, and that becomes the starting point for expansion. Not so much this time around as it more meant starting a bench from scratch at the right spot where the trilobite layer is. I found an entry point about a foot and half wide and we got to work moving about a foot or more of overburden. I then starting carving out slabs and placing them on the piles of debris we were scooping up (I'm glad I did as Day 2 will make clear). There was a slightly higher proportion of Greenops bits at this spot as I suspected from the general area we had covered last year. Pictured here are some slabs. The first one with my rock hammer dangling was resting on a very smooth inclined layer that ran about 4-5 feet wide and about 3 feet deep. The bottom half of that slab is about a foot and the top tapered part is only about a few inches. The one I pulled out the next day was a real monster at about 2.5x larger and about 400 lbs, and it took a heck of a lot of energy and several tries to wrestle it into an upright position. My back was pretty sore after that! The other slab pictured has some promise as there are some trilobite parts showing. Ultimately, I was in search of a trilobite party, and the stuff at the base of the inclined layer seemed to hold a bit of promise for a multi-plate. (cont)
  2. Devonian fish bone?

    Cleaning devonian rocks I've found this. It could be a fish bone or maybe orthoceras? Is a small fragment. What do you think? Regards.

  4. Lake Ontario ID

    Today I went Orthoceras hunting on the shore of Lake Ontario. I found a rock that clearly has some fossil activity going on but I cannot figure it out. I am unsure if it is just a strangely configured algae fossil (just different than I normally find). P.s. please disregard my bunny pajamas lol

  16. Eldredgeops rana

    All I can say to this fine specimen is "Wow!" @Malcolmt thank you so much for restoring and preparing this prone Eldredgeops rana. Here is a before and after.
  17. Brought back a stone with a fault line on it from the shore of southern Lake Huron. Broke it open with a chisel and hammer to reveal an ultra thin shell like fossil. I wonder if someone can help me identify it.
  18. Drotops Megalomanicus

    Drotops Megalomanicus found it mislabeled and under priced at the mall today at a random booth, was a very unexpected pleasure measures somewhere around 5.3-5.4 inches, the condition is not to bad.
  19. Yukon Phyllocarids

    Anyone intimately familiar with Phyllocarid morphology? This slab is from a lower Devonian formation in the northern Yukon Territory. These things were giants ... The well preserved Telson (tail-spike) piece is 10" long, the feeler/antennae assembly alone is 18" long ... In life the critter was likely a good meter in length. What I'm not certain about is the 8" long arm-like appendage at top, as well as a small armor like plate nearby. Over the years have found many complete trident shaped telsons and antennae but not much in the way of other body parts.
  20. Hexagonaria coral?

  21. Mahantango Bryozoan

    Hi folks. Still searching for a complete trilobite. The "Bit" count is over 80 now .... still hopeful though. Anyway, I cracked open this densely populated plate of bryozoans. Several species were throughout this chunk. I saved this split as it is probably the best (size) example of this particular species that I have found here so far. Kind regards,
  22. Devonian Fish

    Good afternoon. This fish and mold with neither head or tail comes from the same group of concretions that yielded the Devonian trilobite Eldredgeia. The specimen is a body of 29 mm in length and 15 mm at its widest part. The lack of head complicates the ID. I believe it is a small type of cephalaspis such as Pattenaspis, Mimetaspis o Diademaspis, but I am looking for help to ID it. I would appreciate any help I can get Thank you,
  23. Greenops widderensis

    Acquired from @PaleoPat during a recent trade. This trilobite is originally from Arkona and is uncommon.
  24. Is This New York Trilobite Id'able?

    Hello, this trilobite was found in rock from somewhere upstate new york. It was an interesting shape different from what I have found before but it is very worn to tell exactly what it is to my knowledge, is it to broken up to id? If not I'll let the new york trilobite experts here take this one. The trilo measures a little over an inch.
  25. Fossil ID help

    I found this fossil imprint (that's probably not the right terminology) on a rock last month in northern Michigan. It measures 2" x 2", and in places there seems to be a honeycomb pattern. What's with the tubular piece?
