  1. July 23,2019 Its been so hot working outside all week that today's fossil hunt in 70 degree temps felt cool. It was quiet in the stream (besides the sound of wildlife) when I got there in the AM and stayed that way all day. I didnt want to disturb the scene with me pounding on rocks so I surface collected and covered a large area of the stream. Along the sides of the stream are glacial erratic boulders, stones, and gravel. The tabulate corals (Chonostegites clappi, Favosites winchelli, Favosites sp.) I pictured in this post were found among these glacial rocks. In one gully off the stream I noticed a large boulder of Waterlime. I have found parts of Eurypterids in these displaced Silurian rocks before. Today I found a partial Eurypterid on one of these boulders but had to leave it where I found it. Too big and way too far to haul back. Happy Collecting, Mikeymig
  2. ID references for Eurypterids

    Hello all! I'm looking for recommendations on good resources to help me identify a ton of material that I recently acquired from the Sojka eurypterid collection. I believe it is all from the Bertie Waterlime, but I can't be entirely sure. Some of the pieces have collection numbers, but I don't have access to the collection records. I am guessing that any of the collection records went with the rest of the collection to the Yale Peabody, but I can't imagine that I would honestly be able to match up the information without a lot of time and access. There's a lot of assorted material and lots of bits and pieces to ID. I figure that this will give me a good opportunity to learn a ton about a new subject! Thanks! - J
  3. I didnt know where to post this? Its not prepped. It was just found, but sadly, not by me. I just wanted to show this to folks. Too cool not too. If its in the wrong place, please move it. Thanks. My best buddy goes to England every year to metal detect. He met my other buddy, Al Lang, whilst on one of those trips and they became freinds. I was just sent these photos this morning. Really really cool. I only wish that I could prep something like this. Supposed to be 19 Eurypterids on it. Just Wow!!! RB

  5. My new Eurypterids

    Good evening to all. Have a few interesting things, quite rare for Ukraine... I found it by myself. Sincerely yours
  6. My collection

    Hello to everyone. I'm from Ukraine and here are some of my fossils. Description Ichthyosaur’s tooth (Platypterygius or Pervushovisaurus). Additional Information Continent: Europe Country: Ukraine Region: Donetsk region Era: Mesozoic Period: Cenomanian Age: 100.5 ± 0.4 million years
  7. Devonian Fossil ID please.

    Hi all, I am back with a few more questions. I've found some interesting fossils on the bedding planes of my Devonian cores and I need some help to have an idea of what they are or what they might be. There are overall 9 images as you will see in my replies. I would appreciate if you can help me to figure these out. Cheers Korhan
  8. Ny Eurypterids

    Hello. I was wondering about what eurypterid fossils can be found in New York, specifically near Saratoga Springs as I have family in the area and I was hoping to go collecting in the area when I head up there. If you plan on going collecting soon then good luck and have a wonderful day.
  9. Well I spent a wonderful day (perfect weather , not too hot not too cold and no rain) at the Eurypterid quarry today with two fellow collectors from the US and Quarryman Dave from the forum here. I was supposed to be hosting a member of the forum and his girl friend but unfortunately they had to cancel at the last minute. Too bad they might have had a very productive day based on how many eurypterids were found today.. One of the collectors from the US (he is a regular comes up about once a month) found a lovely 6 inch eurpterid with both paddles 1 walking leg and a balancing leg unfortunately the telson (bottom spine of tail) was missing. Non the less a great specimen. Note to self... he found it in a pit I abandoned a few weeks ago about 6 inches from where I was digging. He found it one layer below the layer I had been finding them in. Unfortunately, Quarryman Dave as hard as he tried just doesn't quite seem to have the knack for getting the eurypterids to bite for him. He actually split a lot of rock today............... Maybe he is using the wrong bait...... Not a total loss though he did get a very good geology lesson from a real expert and he found a partial head of a horseshoe crab. I have not found even a part of a horseshoe crab yet. (they are quite small only a a couple inches long at this location). While Dave was there I found this double plate that has a complete ventral view eurypterid at the top although the head is detached and positioned just above the body. The second eurypterid below the first one is a dorsal view and it is also missing the telson but on closer inspection the telson from it is up to the left of the top eurypterid (the one there anyway is the correct size for this one. The first one has its telson attached.. Dave is going to be ##### at me, I found two more complete after he left. He could only stay till about 1:30. The first one is about 7 inches long. I do not have a picture at this point it came out in about a dozen pieces and will require some intensive care. I will have the superglue out for sure tommorow. The 4rth one of the day is a real gem. Actually it is kind of amazing that I even saw it. It may turn out to be may favorite eurypterid that I have collected , haven't quite decided yet. For sure it is staying in my collection. It is the smallest eurypterid I have ever seen come out of the Williamsville "A" layer of the Bertie waterlime. Here are two pictures of the positive and negative with an american dime as a point of reference. This one is smaller than the tiny ones Pleecan and I sometimes find in the Fiddlers Green formation. All in all a very good day I would say (4 eurypterids) Mike and D. it was a real shame you could not make it. The offer to join me for a day of eurypterid collecting is open anytime you can reschedule. For that matter if anyone from the forum wants join me for a day just PM me. Just know there are days that we go home skunked. Just ask Quarryman Dave who has yet to find one in quite a number of visits or Pleecan.
  10. Fiddlers Green Formation of the Bertie Group Eurypterids Thank you to many of the members at the Niagara Peninsula Geological Society for helping me find and giving me several Eurypterid specimens from the Fiddlers Green Formation of the Bertie Group on July 6th, 2012. This was one of the first exciting fossil collecting trips I have been on, as most of my collecting just comes from the Kingston area or Prince Edward County. Here are several of th samples collected that day, most of them kindly given to me by NPGS members. I'll post the larger heads that I collected over at the Williamsville Formation of the Bertie Group sometime soon. Thank you NPGS Member, Corey Lablans More photos of the Eurypterid fossils check out: http://clfossilsandminerals.blogspot.ca/2012/07/eurypterids-by-corey-lablans.html
