My wife and I made our 2nd trip up to Deep Springs Rd on Saturday. Nothing spectacular but figured I would share our finds. Also posted a couple items in the identification forum. Grids are quarter inch. Starting with a mortality plate. I like this one because its a nice flat plate and easy display piece with several different shell types represented:
Got up to DSR for the 2nd time yesterday. Didn't have anything spectacular but will post some finds over in the trip forum. (Deep Springs Rd, Devonian, NY) Had 2 items I can't identify. First up is a 3/4 inch long piece: Second is a rather undefined semi-oval blob. I have both dry and wet views:
Last weekend I had the chance to go to deep spring rd for the first time. It was very ambitious but since @Scylla was going I figured I would just go for it! It was really snowy I’m really excited to be able to study this site further once the site thaws. I saw the literature said the rock exposed shows a clear coarsening up sequence and the fauna changes as well. I really can’t wait to catologue my finds from here! regardless of the weather I still found some goodies. I did find a greenops with the tail tucked underneath. Almost a full prone. I was a fan of the associated fauna here. The cephalopods and bivalves are really nice. I didn’t take home a lot but I liked what I took This greenops can pop up of the chunk of shale seen in the photo but I have it in place. The tail is tucked under attached to the counterpart. Kinda cool to see the potential for this site! This cephalopod was pretty cool. Im not 100% sure if this is a worm burrow or predation marks? Most likely worm burrow? I’m not sure how predation marks would preserve this seems like an internal mold so I’m leaning to the burrow thought. Anyone know for sure? I liked this bivalve a lot! I forgot the name but I will soon have it locked down. I think I’ll be finding many of these this year! It was fun meeting up with gus a fellow forum member. The conditions were kinda hardcore but I can’t complain I still had a blast.
