Yesterday I received received a PM from Rich @stats to see if I wanted to go collecting with him on Mazon Creek, but I told him that I had to pass since I was going to the zoo with my grandson AJ. Now, if I was just going with my wife to the zoo, I would have been on the creek right now collecting- It was a great day, with great weather and there is no better way to spend a Sunday that with my son and his family. Here are a bunch of pictures of the exhibits, it was great for everyone. Here is a picture of me and AJ. And now a picture of my son Alex and wife Izzy + AJ. Now on with the other pics.
I found this last Saturday in Brookfield, Madison County, New York. It’s pretty beat up but there are some features that can still be made out. I was wondering if it might be a bellacartwrightia rather than a greenops, which was my original thought. According to Karl A. Wilson’s Field Guide to the Devonian Fossils of New York, one way to tell the difference is the number of lenses in the eye in a vertical row. For greenops there is maximum of 6. This trilobite has 7 in some places. A picture of the eye, showing a vertical row of 7 lenses. A top view of the trilobite A side view A view of the pygidium Thanks for looking
