  1. First Greenops Prep

    I've recently attempted to start preparing the fossils I collected in upstate NY. With a lot of trial and error and some nicked specimens, I have started to get used to my primitive preparation set-up consisting of a nail, a sewing needle and a hammer. Here's a disarticulated greenops which was great practice: On a side note, I've noticed that freshly exposed shell is a nice black. Would anyone know how to get that back?
  2. New York Devonian Trip

    Hey everyone, Just last week I took a camping trip to Watkins Glenn with my family. While there, I took advantage of the wonderful exposures prevalent in central NY and took to collect a plethora of Devonian age fossils. The first two days of the trip were solely dedicated took hiking and camping activities such as visiting the deep gorges present in the finger lakes area. You can see the steep walls of shale exposed along the gorge.

  5. Here are the best prep results from a trade with Misha. Second & 3rd images: Back row, left specimen, Greenops boothi. In front of it, cephalon of Eldredgeops rana. Front specimen, pygidium (will try to identify later). Second row: brachiopods, one on left, Spinatrypta spinosa (renamed, will add new name to thread later on). The rest, thorax assemblages. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any of them to fit together. First image: rugose horn corals, other side of Spinatrypta brach. I will add the finest specimen in a reply to this post. Ran out of photo room. I w.

  17. Rare heliophyllum delicatum fossil

    rare heliophyllum delicatum fossil found in upstate NY. In living position and preserved nicely for being over 350 million years old!
  18. Tim (Fossildude19) and I got together Monday the 1st for the third time this year to head up to Central New York, an over three and a half hour trip from Southeastern New York where I live. The weather was bright, sunny, and warm in sharp contrast with our last trip there in early May for the TFF gathering when it was cold and raining. Instead of going straight to Deep Springs Road Quarry, both our favorite collecting site, we decided to stop first at Briggs Road Quarry, a somewhat smaller quarry with a slightly older Middle Devonian marine fauna- the Upper Ludlowville Formation. Some excellent fossils have been found there recently and Tim and I decided we would try our luck. As typical of my experiences there we found a large number of partial Eldredgeops trilobites. I believe Tim found one complete roller. I brought this one piece back with a few partials. However, my best find there was this phyllocarid; Echinocaris punctata, the first phyllocarid I ever found at Briggs Road.
  19. It seems like an eternity since the last time I was able to go fossilhunting. Yesterday the weather was great, so I decided it was time to get back out there. My two youngest and myself stopped first at Briggs Road to try our luck finding some trilos. I was amazed to find the sight just as it was left back on April 27th when everyone left from the group hunt. I took advantage of the spot where @Al Tahan scored his Eldredgeops. The sun had worked its magic and made the matrix pretty workable. It didnt take long before I found a nice trilo. I haven't taken measurement yet but it is a decent size Eldredgeops, or one but the head is covered with matrix. The thorax and pygidium popped off during extraction but I bit of glue and some prep should fix that. We all found trilo bits and pieces with a couple possible whole ones. The sun was radiating off the pit enough that it felt like an oven for the hour and a half we were there. After leaving Briggs, we headed over to Deep Springs to see what goodies we could score. I saw alot of digging which probably took place during the other half off the group hunt. I really wasnt in the mood for serious digging myself so I resigned to surface scan and shale splitting I was rewarded with some brachs and a nice gastropod.there were many different types of fossils present but I decided to be picky. I only kept a few that I felt were worthy. At one point while surface scanning I saw a familiar sight. It was a negative off a large fish scale, like the one Al had found recently. It was still attached to the host rock so I broke of the chunk and brought it home thinking If it matches the one Al has I would give it to him. We stayed for about an hour and a half there and then it was time to head home the heat was getting to us and the boys were tired. While we were getting ready to leave, we were approached by a gentleman on a tractor. I thought I may be the owner of the property, but as it turned out he was a guy who works for the owner. His name is Mark. He asked if the boys enjoyed themselves and we talked for about a half hour about all sorts of things. He told me about the owner, who he was, and where he lived. He stated that they are amazed that with all of the people who come to hunt the property, they never find trash. That is one of the reasons the owner is more than happy to let people hunt it. We also talked about hunting, fishing, Bee keeping, and of course fossils. I showed him some of our finds and explained what they were. He seemed like a really nice guy. It was a great way to end the trip. I am going to post pics but it may take awhile as some need to be resized. I haven't quite figured out the camera on my new phone. But for now I will leave you with this pic. This is what happens when a bald guy forgoes the sunscreen and only wears a baseball cap. This is also how i looked last night when i went out for dinner and then drinks.
