  1. A few weeks ago, just when we were inundated with the spring muddy season, I stopped at a site that features Decorah Shale with a little Platteville mixed in. If you haven't collected in the Decorah Shale, let me say it stays MUDDY even in a drought!! The site had been worked over for a finish grade. This means the site will soon be lost to vegetative overgrowth. So I proceeded to collect a 5 gallon bucket of mucky matrix to clean and examine at home, in case the weeds invade quickly. Here are some select finds from that bucket.

    Literature on fossils

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I have been looking for literature on the following for a while now, and have not been successful. I was wondering if anyone already had information on the following, or can direct me to a place where I can look for it myself. Brachiopods, specifically Lingulids (classification and identification) Salopina genus ( classification and identification), this genus was moved from Orthis, for further clarification Rhychonellida (classification and identification, at least to the genus level). Camarotoechia genus (classificat
  3. One of the nice things about being on the team to design a new facility is you can get what you want. All retaking walls and benches are locally quarried Stoner Limestone from Weeping Water, Nebraska. I can’t wait to get my scribe and chisels out...

    Bunch of Brachiopods to ID

    Hello everyone! I recently received a package from @connorp filled with wonderful brachiopods! I am not exactly sure as to what the IDs for some of them are so I thought I would ask here Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you 1. Silica shale. These look like Atrypa sp. but I am not sure what species are present in this formation. 3 cm wide 2. Same formation. Stropheodonta? 2 cm wide 3. This is from the Ordovician Liberty Formation. Rhynchonellid not sure what genus or species 1.5 cm wide 4. Some kind of strophomenid from the Mifflin Mem
  5. Taking advantage of my time spent home, I finally got a couple of glass display cases to showcase fossil specimens from my collection. Finding ones that were affordable and blended with the style of our home, was challenge, and I took my time choosing. Despite a bit of criticism I receive from some of my fossil collecting friends, I am a generalist collector who doesn't specialize in anything. Having said that, my collection does feature some rare faunas; Devonian and Cretaceous bivalves, Lower and Middle Devonian brachiopods and gastropods, Cretaceous vertebrates, etc. The focus is largely on
  6. Okay gang. Don’t ever do this. Brachs are so common here ( along with crinoid bits) I use them as aquarium gravel... But, here’s what happens when you figure out how to acid prep Kewitz limestone to expose calcite and not loose morphology: I finish these with a week long silicon oil soak to make them shine.
  7. 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 si

    Back to the Ohio Valley

    Hi Everyone, I took a 2 week trip to the Ohio Valley, arriving back in New York about a week ago. It was primarily a family visit since many of my relatives now reside in the Elizabethtown, KY area. However, the Ohio Valley, as some of you know, is very rich in Paleozoic fossils and I just had to make a few stops on my way there and back as well as between family engagements. I will try to share enough to give you all a gist of it: It was a long day's drive from the northern suburbs of New York City to Richmond, Indiana where I spent the first night. The next day I was headed down State R
  9. I found a variety of brachiopods in the Devonian Silica Shale Formation near Sylvania, Ohio, in mid-August. A few are a bit pyritized.

    Brachiopod

    We visited our son at the house he bought outside of Lafayette, Macon County, Tennessee, United States. This limestone with a nice brachiopod and a partially exposed one and others was sitting along the fire pit. No telling where it is actually from or who left it there, but it may well be a local find. Please tell me if I am correct on the type of pod? Richmondian (Upper Ordovician) strata in the Central Basin of Tennessee. Ordovician Period beginning 488.3 million years ago and ending 443.7 million years ago. 1 5/8" w 4.2 cm x 1 1/4 3.2 cm high Brachiopods- Rafinesquina ponde

    I read a lot of fossil hunting reports on here, but I don’t post many. I think it’s primarily because it is usually many, many months after I have gone when I finally get everything cleaned up, ID’d and take photos, etc. It just seems too after the fact to me at that point, haha. But this time, due to a wonderful “tour guide” we had, I wanted to get something posted in a relatively timely fashion. Because of that, I haven’t had time to do a lot of research I need to do on specific ID’s but luckily I’m somewhat familiar with most of what we found to make at least an educated guess.
  12. Hi, my daughter is fossil obsessed and we are heading out to regional NSW for a trip and would love to do some fossil fossicking along the way. We are going to Canowindra, Parkes, Bourke, Broken Hill, and Griffith. If you have any suggestions as to places we could fossick that would be wonderful! thanks
  13. Hi everyone! Today I went on another fossil hunting trip with the fossil club the BVP. https://www.paleontica.org/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=3&language=en We visited the "La Couvinoise" quarry in Couvin, Belgium. The rocks in this quarry are part of the Hanonet Formation which lies at the boundry of the Eifelian & Givetian. But the layers we searched in today where all Givetian in age (387,7 - 382,7 mya), I mainly searched in the Crinoïd & Brachiopod layer. Although I have to admit that we probably visited the quarry at a bad moment, as the yield was quite poo
  14. Hi everyone! Yesterday my girlfriend & I went on a fossil hunting trip to an abandoned quarry in Resteigne in Belgium. https://www.paleontica.org/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=10&language=en I am currently at home for some time due to mental health issues. I am currently dealing with despression and severe anxiety attacks all related to COVID-19, I am in a risk group and work in an essential store and the stress and way that people threat you finally became too much and I simply snapped. I finally decided to go see a doctor and a psychologist to help
  15. 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

    Trip to St. Leon, IN

    Finally made it out to St. Leon, IN while visiting my girlfriend's family in rural Indiana. Here are some cool specimens I found (lots of brachiopods):
  18. Hello everyone, These were all found in St. Claire, PA. Mahantango Formation. Anybody know what these are? #1. Looks like octopus suckers in brown outline. Is it a coral? #2. Crinoid star stems? #3. Cylindrical molds, what are these?

    North Vernon Creek Fossils Finds

    Made my way from NY to IN to visit my girlfriend's family for the week in the small town of North Vernon. Her parent's backyard has a creek running through it and it's full of fossils! Here are some that I found while splashing around a bit:

    What do you think?

    Hey guys, I'm back with another ID question. The fossil I'm trying to identify is in the 1st picture. I think that what I have is a fossilized brachiopod WITHOUT the shell. What do you guys think? It's the same general shape, but the color and textures of this fossil look different than others I've found in the area. The symmetrical textured part in between the two humps, I've never seen before. Pictures 1,2, and 5 show the fossil in question and pictures 3 and 4 show examples of other brachiopods that I've found. The last picture is an example of a brachiopod that was broken
  21. Hi All. I was unsure where to put this message so hopefully this place is okay. I teach 7th grade Life Science and we are soon starting our coverage of major animal types (arthropods, echinoderms, molluscs, chordtates, etc). I am hoping to put together a teaching collection that can be used each year as we do this. If there are members here who are willing to donate any/all types of durable specimens (harder for young teens to destroy) that could be used to teach students the key features of these phyla. If you are willing and able to share can you please PM me directly. I do appreciate
  22. I found these Jurassic fossils in the Jaisalmer Basin, Thar Desert, India. Belemnites (left), brachiopods of various sizes (center), ammonite fragments (top) & 3 small whole ammonites (lower right). Quarter coin shows scale.
