  1. Beak with 2 rows of teeth

    found this about 15yrs ago never been able to find another on the web , maybe you can tell me what it is ( its definitely a beak with two rows of teeth and clearly a tongue in the center)
  2. Silurian Fossil Needs ID

    This is a fossil I collected at the Long Pond Road Site along the Erie Canal in Greece, New York. It is from the middle Silurian Rochester shale. Some interesting perpendicular lines can be seen along the edge of it. I have looked for other fossils similar to this one and have found nothing. The American dime is 1.8cm in diameter.
  3. Silurian Invertebrate Needs ID

    These are two fossils of the same species collected at the Long Pond Road Site along the Erie Canal in Greece, New York. They are from the middle Silurian Rochester shale. These were collected last winter, and I have since been unable to identify them. Both are no greater than 3cm in length. Some interesting fine detail is visible on the first specimen. The American dime is 1.8cm in diameter.
  4. My son wants to know...

    My son (9 years old) collects rocks and found this "rock" in a stream near our house. We are located in the Tug Hill Region of New York State. The area has shale starting about 45 cm below the sod layer. I have looked and cannot determine what they are, but there seems to be some Ordovician fossils. Thanks for the info!! Levi and Logan (son)
  5. Hiya! I got some New York Devonian matrix (Penn Dixie) and would appreciate some help (or confirmation!) with the ID's of a few thingies. Thanks!! 1. Is this a fish tooth perhaps? Size 1/8 inch 2.Is this a Trilobite cephalon? Size 1/8 inch 3. I thought this was a coral, but saw on the Penn Dixie site something that looked like it but it said it was a Fish Plate? Size 1/4 inch 4. Not sure what this is....probably part of a crinoid? Size 1/8 inch 5. Not sure at all. Flat plate Size 1/8 inch 6. Coral Trachypora perhaps? or is it Bryozoan? Size 1/8 inch Thanks for any info!!

  10. Hello all: Attached is a picture of what I believe is a fossilized skull that I found sitting in the grass on top of the soil in Fort Greene Park, located in Brooklyn, New York City (in the area known of Brooklyn known as Fort Greene). The fossil is approximately 1 and 1/2 inches long. I struggled to decide which photos to add. What you cannot see in the attached photos is the other side of the fossil, which preserved quite distinctly nasal cavities. I'm a lawyer, and I do not have any background in paleontology, though I did take geology 101 in college, and I've since never stopped searching for cool rocks. This, I think, ranks as one of the coolest. It looks more reptilian to me from the front, but from the other side, which you cant see in the picture, and is essentially the inside of the skull, it sort of resembles a bird. I do understand birds evolved from reptiles/ dinosaurs. This fossil strikes me as belonging to something in between. Please help me ID this fossil. Your time and expertise are greatly appreciated. Thank you! Regards, Jordan Lieber.
  11. Mystery hypostome in need of ID

    Hello everyone! So I was cleaning off a rock today and on it I found this tiny hypostome. I was wondering if anybody has an idea of what species this may have come from. This rock came from a site in North-Central NY that exposes the Ordovician Trenton Group. Thanks for looking!
  12. Greetings everybody! While I was on my fishing trip last weekend I took some time to look for fossils. I collected at a couple of creeks exposing the Middle Ordovician Trenton Group in North-Central NY. I found lots of trilo-bits and other goodies! Enjoy
  13. Hi everyone, an interesting fossil was found near Montague NY, most likely Glenerie Formation. Can this be the tail section of a Trilobite? Can anyone help with species ID if possible? Thanks to all that can help
  14. Paleoniscoid fishes

    Here’s a upper Devonian paleoniscoid fish I found in 18 mile creek - Erie county,NY this spring. seems to be similar to fish found in younger stratigraphy Linton deposits from Ohio area. Been hard to find any specific info on Devonian fish found in New York, perhaps a rare find? Has anyone found anything similar in western NY?
  15. Creek Bug

    Creek Bug Eldredgeops rana (Trilobite) Middle Devonian, Moscow formation New York I found this trilobite in Sept. 2019 and never shared it. Or did I Anyway, I was hiking in a stream going from one location to another and found this trilobite after my girlfriend stepped on it Not her fault really. She's busy looking out for spiders, webs to spiders, and giant web wrapping people up spiders. I saw the telltale black of the trilobites exo and knew what it was (note the algae staining on the matrix). This site isn't a place where we go to collect bugs. This is our fossil coral location with the occasional trilobite. The bugs at this site tend to be on the big side and this is no exception. Your average complete Eldredgeops from NY is around an inch. If this bug was outstretched, it would be 3.1" or 78.74mm. I cleaned it up a little but the matrix that is still on the trilobite is very hard. My main focus was, is there a pygidium or not, so that had to be dug out. I think the coolest thing about this specimen is that it survived millions of years and who knows how long as a waterworn cobble in a stream after some cute girl steps on it. Happy Collecting
  16. Yesterday, Tim (Fossildude19) and myself met at our usual meeting spot and with Tim driving and his downloads playing, we headed north to a planned rendezvous with the New York Paleontological Society's outing at Cobleskill Stone Products just outside Schoharie, N.Y. The weather was gorgeous- perfect really, sunny mid-50s. Fall colors were in full swing. We drove through the northern edge of the Catskills, arriving early at our rendezvous, the parking lot at the Cobleskill Stone Company. It was my first time there since 2013. I went on two previous NY Paleontological Society outings to this site, access tightly restricted. I had wanted to return, but every year there always seemed to be a conflict. One year I recall there was a planned Fossil Forum gathering at DSR on the same day. There were many reasons I wanted to return: The quarry had the best exposure of the Kalkberg Formation I've ever encountered. The Kalkberg is Lower Devonian, part of the Helderberg Group. Marine fossils are especially abundant and well preserved. The biodiversity is exceptional. There are many species of brachiopods, plus corals, nautiloids, bryozoans, the sponge, Hindia, and trilobites. Since the quarry is infrequently hunted, many specimens can be found exposed, even weathered clean right out of the limestone. Many of my best Kalkberg fossils are from there. I was excited to be there. It is always a pleasure to be out collecting with Tim. It was his first time at this quarry. Here are a couple pictures of the quarry. Notice the bright fall colors in the background.
  17. Possible Trilobite?

    While hiking some park trails yesterday we came across a limestone embankment that was significantly eroded. Lots of Bracciopods, but we found one different one. Located in Saugerties, NY. Is this a part of a trilobite?

  19. Last week started normally, and ended with me driving from NYC to the Finger Lakes, the chauffeur for my fiance and her maid of honor for a half-week getaway (after 6 months of lockdown). With no plans of my own, I read a little about the area and saw mention of trilobites being found. My dad has a trilobite on the mantle when I was growing up, so I read further and saw many were found in a stream bed near where we were staying, and all of a sudden I was making plans to go fossil hunting. Luckily I found this forum and other resources in my quick search and learned the stream in question is on private property. I identified a number of public that looked similar/nearby on google maps terrain, and decided to look there. I made a few outings myself while they did their thing, and we all made a few stops along our drive and looked together a couple times. It was my first time, and it started slow. At one road stop my fiance found what might have been coral? Then I found a worm-looking thing at a roadside waterfall, but it cracked when i picked it up again. It was when I/we went to Clark Gully and Bare Hill Unique Area near Lake Canandaigua, and Kashong Creek near Lake Seneca that we really found some neat things (which I'll start posting below). I know very little about fossils but have ordered a book and started reading through this forum and other resources to learn more about what I found. I know the area is known for Devonian fossils, so I'm working from the assumption that these are from around then. In the meantime, I've given them all a gentle cleaning; I tried scrubbing gently with both dish soap and vinegar, the former seems to work better, but I'm trying to be as careful as possible to not damage anything until I know what I am doing. These first three fossils we found at Kashong in the stream bed. We found lots of amalgamations of shell imprints/other things, but these 3 really stood out. The first one you can really see the difference from before and after cleaning, in terms of the detail. Im afraid to do much more, and am open to any suggestions as I post some more! (Before cleaning) (After cleaning) Front view, before cleaning (Before cleaning) (After very, very gentle cleaning) (After cleaning) Thanks to this forum for helping me quickly brush up on the basics and find these guys, it was really fun!

  22. Not another dinosaur egg....

    I found this in Nyack, NY near the water, close to where fossils have been discovered before. It looks as though it has some of the characteristics often discussed in this forum in regards to fossilized eg gs. Please forgive me if this is another river stone...
  23. My son and I got our first trip looking for fossils in! We checked out a road cut exposing some Lower Devionian rocks and found a chunk of rock that looked like it came loose with the recent rains we had. There were a ton of Brachiopods in it. We didn't really dig around in the rocks or split anything. We really were just looking on the surface, but I want to learn more about actually finding fossils that are not just loose. We also checked out the rock formations in our backyard, which we only found 1 really tiny Brachiopod in it, despite a lot of searching what was visible on the surface! Lots to learn and we are looking forward to it! The formation in the photo is the one in our backyard. I am not sure how to search it yet thoughtfully though. I am also not sure of the geology of this area yet and we are searching for more information on it. Overall, we had a blast!
  24. Sorry, the quarter was all I could find for a scale reference. My 8 year old spotted this in an area with lots of small Devonian fossils (crinoids, etc.). I thought this looked a bit like a portion of a eurypterid, but I am very inexperienced, and would not be surprised to find that I am waaaaaay off base. Any help with an ID would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
  25. Central New York

    I’ve been out hunting three times since my first trip a few weeks ago. Today my whole family spent a few hours at DSR. It took a long time, but I finally found my first complete trilobite!
