Found 9 results

  1. Platyceras "spirale", a Lower Devonian gastropod from the Glenerie Limestone exposed in a roadcut along Route 9W between Kingston and Saugerties, NY. These three preserved in silica are the only examples I have.
  2. This Brachiopod Bites

    My only complete speciman of Camarotoechia dryope, a Lower Devonian brachiopod from the Glenerie Limestone exposed along Route 9W between Kingston and Saugerties, NY. Both valves are attached and still open and close. DO NOT FEED!!!
  3. Last Wednesday was a sweltering 94 degree high humidity day. I had an appointment in the area and couldn't help checking out a favorite site; the Dave Elliot bed on Route 209 just west of Kingston, NY. The bed is highly fossiliferous silty sandstone, just a few inches thick in an exposure that's 30 to 40 feet high. The bed is Middle Devonian age with tiny bivalves and cephalopods dominant. I spent a total of three hours chipping away hunks of rock from the crumbly cliff and had my best day there so far: seven complete or nearly complete goniatite ammonoids, Tornoceras mesopleuron. a three and a half inch nearly complete straight-shelled nautiloid, Michelinoceras sp.?, five Eumetabolotoechia brachiopods (normally I just find one or two per day), a tiny spiriferoid brachiopod (unidentified) I've never found at this site before, bivalves, Nuculites sp.?, the twig of a fossil plant, and two other unidentified fossils. The day was well worth it, despite the heat. The unidentified fossils I'll show Dr. Bartholomew, professor of paleontology and stratigraphy at the State University near where I live. Dr. Bartholomew is doing an extensive study of the Dave Elliot Bed in eastern New York. The Dave Elliot fauna here in Kingston is similar to the fossils from Hannacroix Ravine except that brachiopods are rarer at Hannacroix. The presence of well preserved fossil plants in marine sediments would suggest the presence of a nearby river that carried their remains from some terrestrial habitat. The absence of corals and relatively low species diversity also suggests the water contained a large ammount of sediment making it hospitable to only those creatures who could adapt to this cloudy environment. Finding fossils, especially cephalopods, and speculating on what the prehistoric environment was like is a great source of fascination for me. I try to get there whenever I have a chance. Less than a mile north of here, also on Route 209 is another even older Middle Devonian fossil bed that produces abundant spiriferoid brachiopods and rugose corals, and about a mile and half west is a site where spirifers and occasional bivales and cephalopods can be found.
  4. Coelospira concava, a Lower Devonian brachiopod preserved in silica, from the Glenerie Limestone exposed in a roadcut along Route 9W north of Kingston, NY.
  5. Meristella laevis, a Lower Devonian brachiopod from the Glenerie Limestone exposed in a roadcut along Route 9W north of Kingston, NY. The one in my hand includes both valves.
  6. Leptaena rhomborialis, a Lower Devonian brachiopod preserved in silica, from the Glenerie Limestone exposed in a roadcut along Route 9W north of Kingston, NY.
  7. Rhipidomella oblata, a Lower Devonian brachiopod preserved in silica from the Glenerie Limestone exposed in a roadcut along Route 9W north of Kingston, NY
  8. Acrospirifer arreutus, a Lower Devonian brachiopod preserved in silica, very abundant in the Glenerie Limestone exposed in a roadcut along Route 9W north of Kingston, NY.
  9. Examples of Leptocoelia flabellites, a Lower Devonian brachiopod preserved in silica. Very abundant in the Glenerie Limestone exposed in roadcut along 9W north of Kingston, NY. Most specimens had weathered completely from the rock. A number include both valves.
