  1. I met a teacher recently who showed me this trilobite that she found many years ago in western NY. It's probably Devonian, since other rocks she collected nearby contain apparent Phacops (Eldredgeops) tails. I know it would help a lot to have the head exposed, but before she pays for it to be prepped, she is wondering if anyone can ID it based on the exposed portion. I'm no a trilobite expert, but based on the tail I am wondering if it could be a proeitid such as Pseudodechenella, which I understand is pretty rare. Can anyone confirm that or offer other suggestions? Thanks!
  2. Ichnofossil?

    Found in the southern Adirondacks.. Northeastern Lake George. At about 600-700 feet above sea level. The stone itself measures about 12x14 cm.
  3. Hello all! We are planning a trip (with a stop in Pennsylvania) to New York this May to hunt for Trilobites and could use lots of advice. We live in North Carolina, so it is a bit of a haul and we are new to trilobite hunting and to rock splitting fossil hunting generally. I'll lay out the tentative itinerary first and then ask a few specific questions. Any recommendations on the itinerary (additions or places to skip on a limited trip) are, of course, more than welcome! Tuesday Day 0: Drive to Danville, PA and check into a hotel Wednesday Day 1: Visit the Montour Preserve fossil pit ; drive to Buffalo, NY Thursday Day 2: Visit 18 Mile Creek Friday. Day 3: Visit Penn Dixie Quarry (1) Saturday Day 4: Visit Penn Dixie Quarry (2) Sunday Day 5: Drive back to NC The big questions we have (apart from whether this itinerary seems like a good first trip for ambitious new trilobite hunters) are: What tools should we bring? I know safety glasses, chisel and geologic hammer, but what about larger picks, prybars, hammers, shovels, gloves, etc? I've read about people "digging out" an area at Penn Dixie; what is required for that? And what is involved? Is there any rhyme or reason to the pieces you choose to split? What do you look for in a spot? Is there anywhere else "nearby" (within a few hours of anywhere on the route) that we should check out? What am I forgetting to ask? Thank you so much in advance for your help! This forum has been a great planning resource for me and I find more great threads to lurk on every day! Philip
  4. Trilobite ID help

    Hello everyone. Can anyone tell me what type of Trilobite this is? All I know about this fossil is it came from New York in a batch of unprepped fossils.
  5. Last hunt of the year!

    Here in Central New York, we have had the pleasure of fairly decent weather, for the past week. The temperature has been high enough to melt most of the snow. Today I needed to get the boys out of the house. I decided to go to Deep Springs and do a hunt while the boys shot their BB guns. We only stayed for about 1 and a half hours. It was nice to be out there. I dont think that i have been on a hunt anywhere since September? I was being picky about what i was bringing home. Some trilo bits and pieces along with a few other things. First up a Dipleura cephalon.
  6. Hello everyone, looking for some help in IDing this fossil. We think it's a tooth embedded in a jawbone, found in a Western New York riverbank. Thanks!
  7. Oldest Forest in the World

    Gilboa, NY no longer the oldest Forest. It is now in Cairo, NY about 40km away https://m.phys.org/news/2019-12-scientists-uncover-world-oldest-forest.html
  8. Hello All! I am new here, recommended to visit this site, for help Identifying what I found, by someone named The Fossil Guy, who I found on Facebook by following the site Fossilera. My name is Hollie and I am from Long Island, New York. The object in question that I need help identifying was found by myself about ten years ago on the north shore of Long Island in a town called Lloyd Harbor and on the beach. Long Island was formed by a glacier 13,000 ago and is a terminal moraine. The north shore beaches are very rocky with large glacial rocks everywhere and the south shore beaches are all sand. I was told by the fossil guy that my piece is an imprint of a mollusk or worm in sandstone. I am hopeful you all can give me an idea to what it may be. Thank you and happy holidays!!
  9. Hello, I received this trilobite a long ago that I thought was a Parahomalonotus trilobite when I initially got it, recently someone let me know this maybe actually a Dipleura Dekayi, I definitely have my suspicions this would be the case because the surrounding shale matrix is very unusual for Morocco. What do you guys think?
  10. I picked up this nice Eldredgeops rana trilobite mortality plate couple days ago. From the Middle Devonian windom shale western NY. so much going on in this plate it’s hard to capture it all and pictures don’t do it justice.
  11. Hi guys! Haven't made any posts in a while but as I was going through some finds from Penn Dixie recently I have come across a few more fossils I would like to ID. The first few are what I believe to be Pelycopods but I have no further info on them. 1. Part and Counterpart 2. Part and Counterpart, found in the same piece of shale very close to number 1 3. Smaller one among some horn corals 4. A larger one, this one is thicker than the rest and is very different in texture. I have a few more pictures but I don't have space so I will include them below, Thank you guys for any help, Misha.
  12. While Hiking a creek in Upstate New York (Binghamton) I came across this unique find, looks different than anything I have came across before. Looks as if it's composed of several types of minerals along with different types of fossils. Seems to be very dense, with no loose or flaking material. I'm very interested in the main body where it looks as if the material is twisting and curling and gives it a fluid type of look. I am asking the community to please help me identify what this may be composed of and from what era. Thank you. - Dan
  13. Penn dixie never disappoints!

    Penn Dixie never disappoints Hubby and I went last Saturday and I got loads of goodies. I find it rather interesting how all of these trilobites came from the same small area but the way they sit is so different. I would be curious to find out About the conditions that cause the "hugging" trilobites. It's hard to see because I need to be cleaned but each little group has a couple of them , mostly belly to belly. I'm trying to clean them useing an etching pen and a soft brush but pieces keep breaking off and I'm not sure how to do it without them crumbling.

  21. Devonian? New Jersey Fossil ID help

    Hello! I found this tiny fossil in Mercer County, New Jersey but I think its a glacier transport from New York. I noticed it had an intricate pattern so I was wondering if anyone knows what it is. Thanks! Frank
  22. Hi all, It's been a while since I posted a trip report but I was feeling like posting last evening as well as testing out my new photography rig. I moved houses two years ago and lost my lovely brick wall backdrop (the exterior of back of the house) which allowed photography in natural light. The new house is all vinyl siding outside and I have more shade so less opportunity for good sunlit pictures. However, one corner inside the house has a bricked area where a wood burning stove used to be so I have decided to set up some lights there. The pics came out ok so let's proceed with the report. I recently went up to the St. Mary's quarry in Bowmanville, Ontario on a scheduled trip with the local Scarborough club and also stopped off at Arkona while in Canada. I did pretty well at Arkona where I found four Eldredgeops trilobites and two Blastoids among other finds. Nucelocrinus elegans from the Hungry Hollow member of the Widder formation. Sorry, no pics of the Trilobites due to some back spasms but I got these pics of a nice Atactotoechus fruiticosus branch also from the Hungry Hollow Member of the Widder formation. Then I went to the St. Mary's quarry on Sunday where I took a tumble down the rock pile and hurt my ribs. Lucky for me my hard hat took the brunt of the impact my head made with the rocks. With nothing broken and still able to move around, I stayed closer to the ground and found this partial, eroded Isoltelus sp. that is inverted and still shows the Hypostome in place. I also found a plate with Graptolites but that was too heavy to hold and photograph last night. I'll post it tomorrow maybe. Finally, I drove home on Monday and stopped off at a place in New York where some of the Kashong Shale member of the Moscow formation is exposed and found these two surprises. A cephalon of a Dipleura dekayi with some of the shell material eroded away. I think the eye is intact and waiting to see again once some rock is removed. And here is a closeup of the shell on top where you can see the stippled pattern where sensory pits used to be. Lastly I found a pygidium that I am not sure of the genera on. Possibly a Basidechenella sp.? So not a bad trip at all, despite the injury. Good news is that I am healing nicely but still have some soreness and muscle spasms. I'm looking forward to my next trip up in the spring and hopefully will avoid the health scares.
  23. 18 mile Creek

    Hello, here are some recent finds from a hike thru 18 mile creek outside Hamburg, NY.
  24. Middle Devonian Fauna

    Here’s some fossils I’m working on from 18 mile creek in Hamburg,NY. They’re in pretty dense hard silica shale. Any ideas on identifying them?
  25. Fossil Identification

    Good morning, I'm a new member to the forum and am excited to learn more about some of the things I've found as well as to learn about what other things are out there to fine in my area; We were away for the weekend in the Catskills (Orange County New York); while walking through the woods near Big Pond we found several of items (as pictured) and have no idea what they are. In the home that we were staying at there were several more of these that had been found y someone else but the homeowner didnt know what they were either. Anyone that has any knowledge about these would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
