  1. On 3-18-17, Dallas Paleo Society had a field trip to the Black Cat Mountain quarry in Coal County, Oklahoma. Here are a few of my finds from the trip. The details on the site are as follows: Harangan and Bois D'arc formations. Age: Lower Devonian, approximately 419.2 to 393.3 million years ago. Brachiopods, and what I think may be some form of coral. Other side of the brachiopods, same side of the coral piece. Other side is just bare rock. Crinoid columnal section Brachiopod bits & crinoid columnal section Random broken bits on a hash slab, brachiopod shells at top. Brachiopod, Leptaena sp. Thanks for the ID help, @Kane! (Continued in next reply... )
  2. Hey all, I need help identifying these. I don't have a good idea of what they are, so I could really use your guys' help identifying these. Thanks a lot!!!
  3. Hi all, I just need help on confirming this specimen. I think it is a composita (brachiopod) rather than a schizodus (bivalve). There is a depression on the shell's surface going down the middle, but it is hard to see. Thanks again! This was found in NE Kansas.
  4. Hello! I am new to this forum. I enjoy finding fossils, and I can positively identify I have found brachiopods before. In the same location, I often find these volcano-esque sort of fossils; but I have found no literature online or in book form that could delineate what type of fossil this is, etc. Pictured below is a rather extravagant example of the mystery fossil. Thank you, everyone, for looking and extending some help to a beginner!
  5. Is this a brachiopod? I found it here in Albuquerque, my neighborhood has a lot of river rock spread around. The fossil is about 0.5 - 0.75 inches , or 12 - 18 millimeters. Thank you to all who leave a comment.
  6. I have a number of mortality plates that I collected from the middle/upper Devonian Hamilton formation near Ithaca New York. In case the photos aren't clear, it's mostly brachiopod and crinoid hash. Would be interested in trading for any vertebrate material. Or invertebrate that lies outside the Devonian (maybe a similar mortality plate from the Ordovician or Silurian, so I could compare). Anyone interested? Make me an offer. Matt
  7. Brachiopod Punctospirifer scabricosta Carboniferous limestone Treak Cliff Castleton Derbyshire UK Does anyone know what the interesting black feature is in this photo?
  8. I know this is a long shot, but I was hoping someone could identify these two fossils I know almost nothing about. Back in the 1970s and 1980s, my mother owned a lapidary and rock shop in Southern California. Her customers would sometimes give her samples of rocks and fossils they had dug. I believe that is how she got these. When she retired she packed everything up and moved it to her home. I inherited some of it when she passed away. That’s about all I know of them. The brachiopod looks like it might be a Mucrospirifer sp., but I really don’t have any idea about the ammonite. Perhaps something from the Goniatiida order? I know some of you will want to know the rock formations they came from. I’m not a geologist so I don’t really know. I can only tell you I found them in the Cardboard Box member of the Spare Bedroom formation, within the Old House group. (I thought I might apply to register those names with the USGS Geologic Names Committee).
  9. Is there a way to clean pyrite? I have a Athyris spiriferiodes that is trimmed in pyrite that looks better to the eye than the photo shows. I think it will be better if there is a way to clean it

  18. My kids found some fossils near Roanoke, VA - It looks like they are brachiopods and trace fossils from outcrops ranging from the Ordovician to the Mississippian. Can these be more specifically identified besides generic "brachiopods"? Thanks!

  24. Hello everyone! I was hoping to make arrangements for the members of the group to have one more group outing at the site before the winter hits and we're all snowed into hibernation for the year. I don't have a date in mind yet, but would like to open it up to the group to see if, a.) there is anyone interested; and b.) what dates would be of interested to people. I believe the rate would be $5/person for the day. DM me with any questions or suggestions!
