  1. Hey everyone! Happy to finally be making another entry. Over the last couple of weeks I've been reading Richard Fortey's "Trilobite" and thus itching to get back into the field and see some for myself. Driving from New York to Chicago I decided to make a pit stop at Ohio's Paulding Community Fossil Garden and try my luck at finding some eldredgeops fossils. Here's what the garden looks like when you arrive: You're basically wading through fossils step after step. Here's the best of what I found, excluding some nice surface-collected brachiopods I've been handing out to friends here in Chicago. I have a few questions about what I've found, if anybody could give me their input it would be very much appreciated!! A lot of little bits. Crushed Eldredgeops rana cephalon about 1.75" wide. What I assume is a juvenile Eldredgeops rana? Size is about that of a dime. Tried to get to the surrounding shale using a pin vise but yielded scarce results. I'd be really grateful for any suggestions from more experienced preppers! Small, nickel sized brachiopod with something that looks to be stuck onto it! Anybody encounter this before?? I would attempt to prep off some of this muck but I don't want to risk damaging anything. Is a pin vise enough? A brush and some sort of solution maybe? Thanks for looking! I'm in Chicago as I write this, and just this morning paid a visit to the legendary Dave's Down To Earth Rock Shop in Evanston. There are walls littered with incredible stones, ancient tools and fossils. Everywhere. Imagine my surprise when encountering a familiar face.

  9. Penn Dixie Round 1

    This year I pulled the trigger on heading to Penn Dixie for the Dig With the Experts weekend! Definitely would highly recommend . I drove up from Boston to the Buffalo area on Thursday and spent the day Friday digging with @Malcolmt and @JamesAndTheFossilPeach. It was a blast! Thanks again guys for giving me a lay of the land. Credit to @JamesAndTheFossilPeach for the find of the day with a giant Eldredgeops (pic below). Saturday and Sunday were spent looking for trilobites in the roped off Dig With the Experts section of excavated shale with some success. Monday I drove back to Boston, and stopped to stretch my legs in Glenerie, NY to walk a stretch of road looking for Devonian brachiopods and gastropods. Got a couple! All in all, a great trip... although I'm nice and sore . Here are my takeaways from the weekend. I tried to get a bit of the entire Penn Dixie Ecosystem keeping at least one of everything and as many trilobites as I could find. I wish I took more pictures Saturday and Sunday, but I was too busy splitting shale . Cheers, Barret

  13. It this Trilobite Eldredgeops Rana?

    I got this from the same estate I got everything else. This came to me with no information. From the little I've learned this is a Trilobite Eldredgeops Rana? Am I right? If not, what is it? It is 3 mm long. Thank you, everyone and Merry Christmas!

  17. Eldredgeops

    I have a couple of Eldredgeops that need to be cleaned so I decided to purchase this pristine specimen with a neighboring Eldredgeops head (cephalon) poking out so I would have something to go off of. Really fine specimen with pyrite on the tip of the nose.
  18. Better Late Than Never

    Yep! This is a few months late, but I figure better late than never! I had to retake and resize these photos today. So here they are. I arrived in town Thursday so that I could rest(11 hour drive) and hit a few places before the dig on Saturday. I hunted Friday at a spot I was told about last time I was in the area but, the weather and other issues did not allow it at the time. This site was beautiful with shale walls here and there with large concretions protruding out. I was told the concretions are where the complete trilobites were, but were extremely hard. Well, this was an understatement lol. I forgot my 5lb sledge in the truck and my little 22oz Eastwing was no match for these concretions so I moved on. I walked up stream where I found an area that had these little guys eroding out everywhere. (All measurements are in cm.) I packed some up and moved on. A little ways down, I found a small outcrop of shale exposed along the creek. I split a few pieces with nothing inside and then on my last piece of shale I revealed this. The other half fragmented and fell into the creek. I saw what was there and looked down and realized my other pieces were gone. My first complete Greenops sp. would have to wait. I packed up my trilobit and moved on. I walked for about 30 minutes without finding a thing, but I could hear what sounded like a faint on going roar. I kept walking and came upon this. It wasn't what I was looking for, but I did enjoy it and stayed there soaking it in.
  19. This 4th of July weekend, I made the annual pilgrimage to upstate Western New York, for our annual get together with family at Rushford Lake. We left on July 2nd, around 5:30 am. My family arrived at around 11:30 am, after a 6 hour trip from Connecticut. I took the rest of the day to relax, and rest up for the trip coming up the next day, July 3rd. As usual, I was granted 6 hours to fossil hunt a bit further north and west, near Buffalo, New York. I was planning to meet up with some of my Forum friends, ... Jeffrey P, Xonenine, and Lissa318. I was the first to show up at our site of the day. After leaving Rushford at around 5:05 am, and the obligatory rest stop for coffee, I arrived around 6:30 am, ... not too anxious. After securing permission for our hunt, I waited for our group to show up. I soon got a text from Carmine saying they were running a bit late, but would be there shortly. Jeffrey P showed up next, at a little after 7:00 am. He and I headed out into the creek, and made our way to a productive site we had collected before. Some shots of the creek.: Due to the lack of rain, the creek level was quite low, which made for an easy wade through the stream, and easily accessible productive layers. The water was refreshingly cold. Jeff and I got to the area, and started in. Finds were slow in coming to us. We were finding lots of trilobite bits. We kept at it, and were gradually rewarded with some complete trilobites. Carmine and Lissa showed up, and joined us. After hellos, and showing our finds so far, we got back too it. Jeff and Carmine, hard at work. Carmine and Melissa: CONTINUED...
