  1. Hi all just bought this Silurian Eurypterid Balteurypterus head cephalon wasn’t overly expensive thought it looked cool and it’s from a trusted seller just wanted everyone’s opinion on it
  2. Hi everyone - My wife and I were thinking about going eurypterid hunting this weekend or next if the weather cooperates. I was wondering if anyone is willing to share any public sites found around the Buffalo area (I know the Williamsville member is exposed in many places around Buffalo). Of course, we would not share this info anyone. Also, if anyone will be out at a site - we could even meet you there. I have a geology background but know very little about this area. Thanks! Pete

  5. Sorry, the quarter was all I could find for a scale reference. My 8 year old spotted this in an area with lots of small Devonian fossils (crinoids, etc.). I thought this looked a bit like a portion of a eurypterid, but I am very inexperienced, and would not be surprised to find that I am waaaaaay off base. Any help with an ID would be very much appreciated! Thanks!

  7. Hello all! As I’ve been taking a closer look at some of the rocks from my previous fossil hunt on August 22, I have been finding some pretty cool fossils that I overlooked at first. I am going to show some of the more interesting ones on this post. Enjoy! ~ Owen

  16. Hi Forum members, Yesterday I went to a spot in Herkimer County in search of Eurypterids! This spot exposed the Fiddlers Green Formation of the Upper Silurian Bertie Group. I had never found a Eurypterid so I was excited to go, and I had heard this was a productive spot. I got there and the first rock I looked at had an exploded eurypterid on it! There were eurypterid bits and pieces all over the place. Eurypterids seemed to be much more abundant at this spot than I thought they would be! I only got to stay there for a half an hour but managed to track down a few nice finds. The rock at this locality is hard like concrete and is pretty much impossible to split (especially the freshly weathered out material). All of my finds came from surface collecting in the weathered out rocks. Thanks for looking! Owen
  17. Hey how’s it going, just have two small things I’m curious about and figured someone would be able to put me on the right track. I’m not very familiar with this sliver of time and it’s a bit of a mystery to me. Both of these were found at different locations, but are Fiddler’s Green Upper Silurian “waterlime”. The first was found near some Eurypterid bits (on different plates) but it was surface collection effectively, and found in a large pile (little chance of recovering the rest of it and couldn’t find any at the time). The second is from the same strata but in a location a decent distance away. I did find that with some elbow grease, but found nothing else besides plenty of salt hoppers. Both localities are in western NY. The first measures out at ~6cm/2.25in and the second is a bit under 2cm/~0.5in. I can provide anything else that is needed (scale, better quality pictures, etc.) and would really appreciate any help I could be given. Even some reference material that I could use would be really helpful. Thanks! Here is the first: Here is the second: Edit: had to fix my pictures and formatting, accidentally uploaded too many pictures.
  18. The museum I work for has been doing a series of short video segments called Fossil Fridays. I am working on one about Devonian marine animals. I can cover sharks, conodonts, acanthodian fish, coral, sponges, and trilos. I do not have any fossils of Eurypterids and would love to include them. I am hoping a TFF member might be willing to provide a short 20-30 second video clip of a sea scorpion. We would credit the fossil as yours and we only need location information in addition to the video. If you think you might be interested in helping us out, please send a PM.
  19. Looking into going up to the Shawangunk formation near the Delaware River gap, looking for any fossils but would most like to find a eurypterid. My problem is I can’t find exactly where the fossiliferous parts are. I know it’s a long shot but has anyone hunted this formation before.
  20. I live in jersey near Philadelphia and I was hoping to find eurypterid fossils but the only stop I can find is Lang’s quarry which is over 5 hours away and cost a ton to hunt. I am wonder if anyone has found evidence of eurypterids in Pennsylvania , Maryland, or southern New York. If you have any pictures I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Noel.

  22. A Eurypterid in San Diego?

    Found this artifact in Black's Beach, San Diego. Looks like a 6-ft scorpion. A Eurypterid maybe? I video and 3D scanned the find and sent it to The Nat and ROM (Toronto). Waiting for a response. Here are a few pictures. This ditch is likely to have been dug by the recent rains. Compare the size to my wrist watch: Closer look: Wavefront .obj file: Hit me up for high-res images, obj file, video, etc. Thanks!
  23. Hey everyone! I finally had a day to go out and enjoy a Saturday fossil hunting with no time limit!! I decided to check 2 middle Devonian locations that have yielded nice dipleura specimens in the past. I’m still looking for “that one” specimen....eventually I’ll find one. I didn’t find the trilobite I tasked myself to find but I did find awesome stuff on Saturday . So here is a little trip report from Saturday September 28, 2019 plus some extra stuff I found earlier in the month. I’ll throw it in at the end. I got up really early so I could get to Cole Hill by sunrise. I had 2 sites in mind from the start. My new house is now only 30 minutes away from CHR which was a nice surprise! Early morning view I’ve had some tough outings at Cole Hill. This rock is so hard!!! I’ve tried clearing overburden just to get to more immovable rock. Anytime I get things moving I find something decent so that was the goal. Find rock that moves!! I ended up finding a spot way off the main outcrop and I got to work. I immediately found a plate with 5 cephalons!! It’s not being very photogenic so I took a picture after making them wet. the right shot shows 4 cephalons stacked in between the white scale bars....the left one shows the 5 hidden cephalon that Is under another cephalon. The bottom piece is just a cheek but could continue I’m not sure. Not very photogenic but rare to find an assemblage like that. I was able to find an area with more weathered rock and I found around a dozen cephalons!!! These are the better and bigger ones. I have a few nice juveniles but they are half covered in rock. I liked these 2 a lot. The left one is very 3D (also came in 10 pieces lol) and the right one has all the cephalon margins intact!! some nicer pygidiums I found. I found 7-10 total in various conditions. I found a lot of associated fauna as well!! The Gastropods came from mostly one bedding plane. The same spot I found the cephalon hash plate these were not far behind littered all over. I also found a bunch of bivalves! Way more than I usually do. I collected more on this trip than I have in the past. The rock kept moving and I kept finding!! After I worked the shelf back far enough I decided I wasn’t going to try and find a new spot. 4 hours of collecting and it was time to go to Deep Springs Rd. Even though I didn’t find exactly what I was after I found lots of amazing specimens compared to past trips . Kept my finder crossed that DSR would be as kind. DSR next post.....
  24. Today I stopped at a garage sale at an ESCONI members house, this is the same location of an earlier garage sale that I posted about a couple months ago. @stats Rich was there and he spotted this Eurypterid first and let me but it. I don’t know what I will do with it and I am not sure if $100 was a good deal, but I was happy with it. I believe this piece cane from Rochester, New York. If anyone has any info on it please let me know. I am really thinking about cutting it down to a smaller size and see if there is anything else in the excess matrix. i also picked up some miscellaneous flats of different prices. There were some larger pieces that were identified at coming from Saint Marie’s Cement Company, Bowmanville (Ontario, Canada) - Ordovician. I do not know if this is the correct ID, but here are some pics of some of the stuff after I split them. I got 4 large plates for $5.00. I got a flat of fossils that was identified as coming from the James Dick Cement Company (Brechin, Ontario, Canada). This flat contained various brachiopods, gastropods, etc., I paid $20.00 for the flat and separated out what I wanted and put them into a Plano tackle box. More in next post.
  25. Hi we've found these fossils in buffalo ny and based only on google searches we see resemblance with eurepterids as well as straight shelled nautiloids. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The photos shown are all different fossils I have them labeled a through c to make identification discussions easier. Thankyou in advance, we're learning!
