Al Tahan posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello fossil folks Just another one of those “Rediscovering New York” posts. This Edition will include my efforts looking for the Trenton group and exploring the Pulaski formation. More Ordovician exploration in the central New York area. This past Saturday me and my good friend Matt did some trout fishing in the Rome area and another town north of Rome. I had scouted these spots for 2 reasons.....trout and trilobites! One location seemed to have Trenton group exposures and another I had already confirmed as the Pulaski formation but wanted to explore it more. Both were located on stretches of the Mohawk River and anyone can go fish/hike these waters. I learned of another Trenton group exposure with trilobites but it’s posted trespassing. Eventually Ill get the courage to do some door knocking in the area to try and find the owners. I guess I don’t know what I would say lol. I wasn’t really in the mood for that so I went to legal stretches of the Mohawk River for this adventure. The goal: 1. Find Trenton group exposures 2. Confirm trilobites from the Pulaski formation 3. Catch trout!!! More to follow....
Just got back from a trip to Forbes, NSW a couple of days ago. Found some great stuff! But after that we checked out a site mentioned very vaguely in an old paper and were pretty successful! The site which is located near Parkes, NSW has Late Ordovician trilobites and other fauna. From what I can gather most of the species from the site are undescribed(?). Anyway, here are a few of my finds, maybe @piranha could help out with some ID's. Oh and I haven't finished prepping these specimens, but I'll post them when I have, although it may be a while since my airscribe has decided to break Crinoid Undescribed calymenid Unidentified trilobite cephalon Another no ID trilobite cephalon. Halfway through prep... continued...
