Hi all, This specimen was found in a black shale layer that lays directly and uncomfortably upon the Duquesne Limestone, which is Late Pennsylvanian age. It was found in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. Both the shale and limestone are filled with vertebrate fossils, especially the scales, teeth and spines of paleoniscoid fish. As far as I know there is no species list from the shale but Elonichthys has been reported. I know skull roofs can be very diagnostic so any rough estimates of genus would be very helpful! I apologize for the picture quality, my phone is a brick.
This boundary shows where you can find Ames Limestone. Before, all I had was a 1980 map. Now I've taken their digital data, converted this formation into KML, and created a custom Google map. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1I3uxksnlKUHcGqqAE9fbIUPIkMzWk6cq&usp=sharing I can do others, but for now, this one was the one I wanted the most.
Obviously, the tetrapod is from the Carboniferous Missippian...out by the old airport...does anyone know where that Casselman formation/Conemaugh Group is? Even though the Fedexia was found in 2004, it would be nice to resume some work and see what else is there...any ideas, any interest?
