  1. Sites in Ohio

    Hey everyone, I'm touring colleges in Ohio from tomorrow to Tuesday and I wanted to know if there would be any opportunities to go fossil hunting in areas nearby the colleges I'm looking at. I'll be touring them in this order- -Wittenburg University in Springfield, OH -Denison University in Granville, OH -Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, OH -The College of Wooster in Wooster, OH Let me know if there are any good sites that would be accessible in these areas. Thanks, PN
  2. Paulding OH unknown

    I found this thing when I was sorting through the haul from a recent trip to Paulding (Silica Shale, Devonian). I have no idea what it is. Only thing I thought of is some kind of fish bit, really just because it doesn't look like anything else from Paulding that I'm familiar with. Any ideas?
  3. Ordovician Creepy Crawler???

    Hey everyone! I was digging through a hash plate today and came across this figure within. I have yet to see anything with this shape yet. It may be nothing, and by all means call me a noob and idiot but I thought I would ask the experts On your thoughts. Plus I haven’t posted in awhile and I miss all of you! Hahaha
  4. Tooth found in ashville, ohio

    Please help I’d this tooth I found while arrowhead hunting
  5. To celebrate the end of the semester, I decided to finally take the 2 hour trip down to the Paulding Fossil Gardens. The weather sucked as most of you in the Midwest probably noticed, but I managed to get a few hours in between storms. This made everything a bit flooded, but I wasn't too concerned.
  6. Scalarituba

    Nice example of Scalarituba found yesterday as float in NE Ohio. I would like others to confirm my identification. Thank you!
  7. Caesar Creek Fossils

    Hey all! I'm new to the forums and this is my first post so I figured I'd show off my recent finds. I'm just an 18 year old from Michigan and this was my very first time fossil hunting. Seeing as how there isn't good fossil sites in Michigan, the next best place to look would be Ohio, and luckily I live near the border. I had read different opinions of Caesar Creek and was skeptical of whether or not I would find some good fossils out there, but I decided to go since I had to start somewhere. My family of 5 went down there for the weekend and went to the spillway on Friday. Luckily, the freeze-thaw cycle had just ended and it rained over night. We figured this would be the best chance of the year to find some good fossils. We were the only people there all day and hunted for about 4 hours. With 5 people hunting we were able to find a good amount of fossils. We found a lot of brachiopods and bryozoans of course, and then towards the end we started finding more gastropods and horn corals. We were bummed that we hadn't found any trilobites all day when we finally found the sweet spot. About 10 different pieces of Flexicalymene and 3 of those being whole and enrolled. We were pretty stoked to be able to find those and some of them looked really nice. I realize they're just some basic Ordovician marine fossils but everyone has got to start somewhere and I'm happy with the collection I was able to start. Already planning a trip to Fossil Park in Sylvania for early May since it's just an hour from my house. And then looking to possibly go to Calvert Cliffs/Brownies Beach in Maryland during the summer to look for Miocene shark teeth and others in the Chesapeake. Let me know if you see anything wrong with any ID's, that'd be great but other than that enjoy these mediocre pictures I took.

    NORTH COAST FOSSIL CLUB APRIL MEETING Our main speaker will be Nathan Smith who is a volunteer in the Vertebrate Paleontology Department at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. The title of his talk will be "The Mesozoic Extinction". For this month's Collector's Corner you are invited to bring in your Mesozoic/Cretaceous Fossils for showing others and sharing information. The Public is Welcome!!!
  9. Back in May 2017, I brought back some nice fossil plates from Ohio, I believe Ordovician in age. First photo is plate 1. Next photo (of plate 1) shows a close-up of parts of the trilobite Isotelus, next photo - a nautiloid (unknown species), next photo shows valves of the brachiopod Strophomera, along with many bryozoan fossils. Next photo is a close-up of crinoids on plate 3. (Not much on plate 2). And last photo is of quite a few crinoids on plate 4.
  10. Trilobite for the prep table

    Hi all, I found this beauty not too long ago in Pauling Ohio. I am pretty sure it is some type of Eldridge trilobite. Any tips on how to prep it?
  11. 3 Isotelus Trilobites

    Had a great fossil expedition the other day. Found 3 rolled Isotelus trilobites.
  12. Paulding species list

    I recently was in Ohio for a short trip for business. Along the way I stopped at the Paulding fossil site. This had been on my fossil bucket list for a while. I was only there for about two hours. I was finding nice big brachs and horn corals, as well as some nice pieces of trilobites when I was getting ready to leave and I found a large, perfect complete enrolled Phacops. I might post some before and after pictures when I finish cleaning it up. Anyway my reason for this post is that I'm asking if anyone has a link to a website or knows of some other resource that shows the different taxa that can be found in this formation so that I don't have to take a bunch of pictures, post them, wait for people to respond... Funny thing is I think I left a small container of fossils I found behind at the site. But I still have about 5lbs of fossils that made it home, so I'm just writing it off as an offering to the fossil gods.
  13. Coral or bone?

    Found in Cincinnati, Ohio during a parking lot excavation. I know very little about fossils. This is some sort of organic material. Porous, agatized with a bone fragment that looks like a tooth (last photo) in one of the holes. Please advise, Thank you.
  14. Coral

    I've not been able to find a comparable coral to this guy. I'm pretty sure it's coral, anyway. Lol Any of you know what it is? Devonian, Sylvania, Ohio. Thanks!
  15. Pecten?

    Might I be on the right track with pecten for this guy? Or would it be another brachiopod? Devonian from Sylvania, Ohio. Any insights? Thanks!
  16. In search of the elusive isotelus

    For the month of March I will be in Ohio working and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction to find some Ohio trilobites. Even partial large isotelus and flexis are fine. Maybe an Ohio crinoid as well. I hope someone can help and maybe even meet up and we can collect together!

  18. Hypostome Identified

    Hello! I just came across almost a complete hypostome and a larger wing of the mouth line on a smaller hash plate. Didn't know it until I broke down the matrix. The more I chip away at the plate the more minor trilobite pieces I am finding...which is not unusual. Is there any suggestions on how to categorize and store these??? Sorry for the snarge picture.... Still need lighting in my new manpad.

  20. Ohio Trilobites

    I was given these two trilobites from my uncle in Michigan, and he found them locally in Ohio about 11 years ago. I was thinking they are flexicalymene but I am not certain since I am new to identification. Thanks in advance! The smaller one is almost exactly 0.5" long (back of matrix shown), the wider one almost 1.5".

  22. Strange fossils in Ohio Rock

    Hey, I was fossils hunting in Ohio and found some pretty neat stuff, but one Rock in particular had some strange fossils in it, it almost looks like a little trilobite plus some other stuff.
  23. Unknown Vertebra section Ohio

    Hello, I would Like to share a photo of what I think Is a vertebra section . I would like to Know what this could be from. It was found In Ohio in the early 60"s. Thanks for looking. I find it quite unique piece .
  24. Mystery Star

    I am a mineral and fossil collector and an amateur astronomer and my email is rocksnstars, so rocks collected that include a star shape are special. Most of the ones I have are the crinoid stems with star-shaped centers. This is the first time I've seen anything like this. I believe I have met the requirements of providing a good photo with a scale, and I know the period is Late Ordivician. I tagged Ohio because I think that is where it is from, but it is possibly Indiana, however BOTH sites are the SAME period and well known. I collected the two places the same day, and unfortunately during the drive home to Maine and the unloading, some of the specimens got mixed up and this was one of them. The Ohio location is the spillway at Caesar Creek State Park, Waynesville, Ohio, US. The Indiana one is Whitewater River Gorge, Richmond, Indiana, US. (Each mark is 1 mm, so the "1" on the scale is 10 mm, perhaps standard.)
