  1. Hello all. This is a cephalopod that was found by Darktooth Dave on our last outing at Deep Springs Road. (Middle Devonian, Moscow Formation, Hamilton Group, Lebanon, NY. ) He kindly gifted me the slab this was in. While trying to break down the slab, as it was quite huge, (2ft by 2ft, by 3" thick) the darn thing popped out. No other pieces to remove, just the one. This is the first slightly coiled cephalopod of this type that I've seen from there, so I'm struggling with an ID. Not only that, but it has an encrusting example of Hederella filiformis on it. Ultra cool specimen! Thanks again, @Darktooth! I'm guessing this is either a Gomphoceras, or a Cyrtoceras? Anyone have any other thoughts, on genus/species? Thanks for any help, and for looking.
  2. Ordovician - Southern Ontario - ID please?

    Hello. I found this in Mimico Creek in Toronto, Ontario. Could someone please tell me what it might be? I thought maybe some kind of cephalopod, but really have no idea. Thanks! Camille
  3. Managed to get out to a site I haven’t been to before, and found lots of cephalopods and gastropods. I recently got back into geocaching (my husband and I used to geocache as students about 10 years ago, back when you had to use a handheld gps unit. Now you can just use a smartphone.) Anyways, we didn’t collect at this location, since the geocache makes it an excellent learning resource for people who don’t know much about fossils. A few photos attached.
  4. My daughter and I have started fossil hunting and came across this a few weeks ago. Pretty sure the ribbed-item (near the tip of my thumb) is a cephalopod, but unsure what the rest of the white pieces are? Thought they might be pieces of bone, or possibly wood? Not sure? Hoping someone could shed some light. Found this on the Bruce Peninsula (Ontario, Canada), on the Georgian Bay shoreline. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Kristin.
  5. Thedford Area Finds

    Spent a solid six hours in full sun and heat, with biting deer flies, moving rock at my secluded spot. Temps were about 30 C, but closer to 40 with humidity and heat off the rocks. Mostly splitting mid Devonian rock from the Widder Fm. Mostly looking for trilobites, which can be a game of inches... too far up or down in the strata, you get blanks or brachs. First up, a few brachs. These can cluster up in massive beds. The first one was fairly large but I left it there. I did keep the second one as the long tips are fragile and rarely come out whole.
  6. OH Ordovician Cephalopod ID Needed

    Hello all. I would love to know more about this fossil plate cephalopod inprint approximately 6 inches long. Here are some of the details about where it was found... Hueston Woods State Park in Preble County, southwestern Ohio; In the Rock bed along Four Mile Creek under Main Loop Road Bridge; Ordovician period. Found in late Nov. 2017 lying fossil side down among a huge pile of rocks and plates. It was dumb luck that I picked it up and flipped it before moving it to analyze some of the other fossil plates it was covering. Really interested in the full hierarchical level info if it's available. Thanks for your time and input. This noob appreciates it!

  16. It Pays to Look Closely!

    After the MAPS fossil show a few weeks ago, I had an hour to play around in a little rock in the Coralville, Ia area before departing for home. A piece of what I think was a cephalopod caught my eye and I tossed it into my bucket as I continued to scrutinize the shelf of Devonian rock in front of me. A few very nice coral pieces were added to my bucket before hitting the road. I didn't pay too much attention to my finds until yesterday. But as I was getting to put the cephalopod piece into the "fossils for kids" pile, I noticed something on it's surface. Such beauty bestowed to a junk piece of cephalopod! One must take the time to look closely or he/she often misses the diamond in the rough. Enjoy this simple fossil grouping.
  17. Nautiloid Cephalopod?

    Is this a fragment of a nautiloid cephalopod? It is quite large. Found in a limestone quarry. Thanks!
  18. Upper Devonian of NY

    Here are just a few of the fossils I find in the Upper Devonian of New York State. The site I found these specimens at is unpublished and unknown to collectors. Some of the rare things I have found - fish skull, phyllocarid, branchiopods, and perfectly preserved cephalopods. The large orthocone is very rare in this formation and I know of only one that was found according to old publications on this unit. I have found fossil logs several feet long that had to stay in the field. I have to pack food, water, tools, and more a 2-3 miles to the location so I'm limited as to how much I can carry back to my truck. Thanks
  19. Orthocone nautiloids

    I should preface this post by saying that the Paleozoic, marine ecosystems, and invertebrates are not generally my primary expertise, so I apologize if I am wildly off base or asking stupid questions. Sadly, I did not find these specimens myself, and so I do not have any particularly useful information on age or location. They were left in a desk drawer along with a collection of other invertebrate fossils, most (if not all) of which are Paleozoic in age. I have several different specimens of orthocone nautiloids, and I would love to know if anyone can refine that identification further. To make the situation more difficult, the siphuncle is only preserved in one of the specimens so far as I can tell (first set of photos below). For this specimen, the diameter of the nautiloid is ~3.5 cm (depending on exactly where it is measured), the inner diameter visible on top and the diameter of the siphuncle on the bottom are 4 mm, and the outer diameter is 8 mm. Here are the pictures. Thank you in advance for your time and input. Specimen #1: Specimen #2:

  21. Nautiloid or trilobite?

    I'm posting this per the suggestion of @Fossildude19 initially I pegged this as a trilobite, until I saw @electricshaman's nautiloid get identified earlier today. Now I'm not sure. Thoughts?
  22. Jellyfish?

    Unfortunately I don’t have much useful detail to share with you here. I found this in Illinois at the bottom of a bridge filled with slabs of rock blasted from God-knows-what quarry. It other slabs like it contained fragments of brachiopod shells and calymene trilobites. It is about 4 1/2cm in diameter. My best guess was a jellyfish or something similar; a geologist whom I showed it to agreed, but honestly neither of us were at all confident in our assessment. Thoughts?
  23. Heteromorphic Ammonite Left Front View

    From the album james herrmann

    In this front left view I wanted to highlight the waving of the kelp. The challenge was to strongly support the heteromorph while still making the sculpture feel like there was movement and a lightness to the work.
  24. Collection Update

    So, I vanished from the forums for several months while dealing with a new career and some health issues. While I spent most of my time focused on being a new teacher, I couldn't break the bug over the winter season. While I did no collecting of my own, I proceeded to spend a ton of money online purchasing additions to my collection. I am pretty proud of my modest, but growing collection and wanted to show off. Where better than on TFF! This is going to take more than a few posts...
