  1. 30E14745-0E18-4527-BF03-9C956B34712B.jpeg

    From the album Lower Devonian Helderberg Group in Eastern NY

    Favosites helderbergiae from the Kalkberg formation.
  2. A few old collection specimens of Devon coral that I've acquired over the years. In scarce supply now, the south Devonshire area around Torquay and Teignmouth was once (mainly 19th and early 20th c) the centre of an ornamental "marble" industry. Much of it went into high class interiors (floors, pillars etc.) but there was a large usage of small pieces for ornamental objects (desk furniture, trinket boxes) and also as inlay pieces for magnificent tables. Fossil specimens were also specifically sold as such. It's not a true marble but a range of well compressed, heated and mineralised limestones that has a range of colours and takes a fine polish. I haven't yet worked out detailed stratigraphy for any of these specimens but they're Middle and Upper Devonian. Apologies for the scratches on some of them - I haven't yet refinished them either. The brass scale is 1cm long. First, a couple of little tablets of Frechastraea sp. 2nd piece: And the only other rugose one so far, a Phillipsastraea sp. that has been fractured and subsequently stylolitised with pink/red veins - this is common in a lot of limestone from the area.
  3. A few days ago after searching our creek for fossil specimens I came across this sticking out of the leaves. It turned out to be larger than I expected, but it was getting dark so without a second thought I hastily yanked it from the ground and ran home with it. I cleaned it up a bit - all smug and pleased with my find. Then that evening I had the good fortune to read Robert Boessenecker’s excellent post about field notes. I’ve always thought fossils were awesome, and have collected them casually since I was little. I never put any real effort into learning more though. In the last few weeks I’ve only just scratched the surface and found myself among you good people because I couldn’t stop wondering what a certain fossil I had found was. You all helped me ID it, and it really started me on this whole fossil thing. Back to the fossil. I slapped myself upside the head and vowed to return to the site the following day. Luckily I knew exactly where it was located and there was the hole from where I had found the fossil so the lesson learned was much less painful than it could have been. 20 inches from the first hole I found this: Then things got interesting... After a few days of careful notes, digging, pictures, and some light prep: In the above picture they are arranged exactly as found. With north straight left of the picture and south straight right. North is also downhill and south is uphill. They were about 7 yards from the creek and I think pieces 1 and 2 were originally exposed by flooding. After some attempts at fitting them together here is the main base: The following picture is what I believe goes on top of the base. However I can’t get it to line up perfectly yet. All the pieces that have fit together fit very well, but since piece 5 was found uphill and behind/south of piece 4 it makes me think pieces 1 and 2 were originally above the base pieces and erosion caused them to be downhill from the buried pieces. Pieces 1, 2, and 5 fit together exactly. 7 could fit on top of 6 but not as perfectly as I can get the others to fit together. A few more detail shots. The only other thing in the excavation that was interesting so far was this specimen which I think may be a piece of Echinoid spine. It was underneath piece 4. I think it may be a species of Favosites, but further research on my part is needed. I’m still working on the stratigraphy of my area. I got lucky because the creek that I found it at is currently about to break its banks and flood the site. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some more pieces of the top section. I know it's a common fossil but I can’t wait to get back out there. I will update as I dig more!
  4. I’ve got quite a handful of Devonian fossils that I’ve found this past week on the shore of Seneca lake in Upstate NY. This post is more of a confirmation of my original thoughts and a hope for a more definitive and exact identification of some of these finds. Thanks for any help in advance! 1– horn coral
  5. Favosites from Hungry Hollow

    Hi there! I'm currently writing labels for my Devonian fossils, and I was wondering if someone out there can identify the following Favosites coral down to species? It's from the South Pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario, Canada, and it's mid-Devonian in age. Thanks so much! Monica Top: Bottom:
  6. Arkona 07/06/2019

    As usual I had the urge to go fossil hunting this weekend so I decided to take a trip to Arkona and have a relaxing day of surface collecting. It was calling for rain all week but turned out to be a nice day (aside from the brutal heat and swarming deer flies). Things were looking a little different this year. Spring hit this roadway to one of the pits pretty hard. Critters everywhere so you have to watch your step. There were loads of tiny toads that must have just grown up and left the water. Also found this poor strawberry plant struggling on top of a hill in poor soil but somehow managed to fruit And now for the fossils... I didn't have any luck finding the blastoid or crinoid I was after but I did take a few things home. Some corals Aulocystis ramosa, Platyaxum frondosum Favosites sp. A brach species I didnt have yet and a large Callipleura Nucleospira concinna, Callipleura nobilis An interesting bryozoan and a cluster of tube worms unknown bryozoan, Spirorbis sp. Gastropods Platyceras bucculentum, Naticonema lineata Possible arthropod trackway? And a new trilo species for me. Beaten up but I'll take it. The cephalon+partial thorax look like Basidechenella Pseudodechenella arkonensis. The pygidium looks like Crassiproetus crassimarginatus (top one was found last year).
  7. From the album Invertebrates

    Orthoceras sp., completely overgrown by Favosites sp. Early Devonian Emsian Bundenbach Germany Length 30cm

  9. ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelgill (Skelghyll) in Cumbria, Northern England. It seems to be a tabulate coral, but I can't find any listed for this location, only mentions of small, rare, rugose corals. It has the star shaped corallites of a Heliolitidid, but seems to be tightly packed together like a Favositidid. A couple of species of Palaeofavosites seem to be close and are a bit star-shaped,, but anyone know any better? @TqB@piranha hmm who else? The coral bit, an external mold, is a maximum of 3.5 cm across and each corallite up to 2 mm.
  10. Baby, It's Cold Outside

    The hubbub of the holidays is over. The cold, crisp air has descended here in the Mid-Atlantic. The ground is frozen, but I was craving sunshine and the hunt. With blue skies today and the promise of snow tomorrow, I headed to the one place I was reasonably certain wouldn't be completely frozen -- the Delaware Bay. After all, we put salt on the roads here to keep them from freezing. How cold is it this week? Cold enough to freeze salt water! Here and there, exposed spots dotted the beach and the highest part of the bank, above the high tide line, was still exposed. There were a few pebbles here and there, but the odds of finding something in such scant gravel wasn't promising. I spent the next hour with a friend, exploring the ice formations with cameras. Still, my beloved beach did not disappoint. I found a couple of little favosites corals in the freezing tide pools and a 3-inch chunk of local petrified wood lying along the trash line. There is something ironic about finding petrified - silicified - wood frozen to the beach sand!
  11. Hungry Hollow IDs

    After Monica's recent post looking for HH IDs I'm prompted to solve a couple uncertainties of my own from that spot, if anyone can help me... This coral was labeled 'Favosites (poss. alpenensis)'... Can anyone confirm or suggest a better fit? I don't know what all the species of Favosites are at that place but I know there are more than one. Second, I know there are 2 types of Mucrospirifer, one being more elongated than the other. I believe I have some of both here but some seem ambiguous. Are there any surefire distinguishing features of either species other than the (possibly variable) elongation?
  12. Explored several new spots

    I went out and checked a few new to me roadside spots. This first posting is all Surilian - Wills Creek formation in Altoona PA. Bivalves, ostracodes, Spirals (Turnitellia?), Favosites corals in 3 different shapes. The only prep I did was a quick rinse. I'm looking forward to prepping these out and tomorrow I'll post a few from the other spot that I visited
  13. Hi this is Matt again I have 3 favosites fossils I have found in the creek I wanted to show everyone here are 3 photos
  14. Here are some of my finds. The first two fossils were taken from a cornfield and I believe the third was found in a creek running through that same field. Most of the rocks and fossils I collect come from cornfields, a lot of them have the farm equipment scars to prove it. Anyway, let me know what you think, the underside of that first one has always intrigued me. Thanks, Matt #1 #2 #3

  17. Favosites-Coral

    From the album Penn_Dixie_Quarry_Blasdell_New_York

    One of the park guides explained that this is a species of coral known as Favosites. It is commonly mistaken for fish scales, and it's nickname is the honeycomb coral. This was the only piece I found that day.
  18. Jurassic Trilobite!

    April fools! Most of you wouldn't click this thread and check out my cool new Devonian coral so I lied. I know whats the big deal? Its just a coral! Its not like its a Trilobite, Ammonite, or Dinosaur fossil. I have collected fossils for many years and I have a very nice Devonian, Favosites coral collection from New York State that I have assembled. I have found complete specimens tumbled in a stream, mushroom shaped, attached to other corals, the size of a button, and some that weigh over 70 pounds. This specimen I found the day before Easter is the best specimen in my collection to date. It is undamaged, unweathered, and super complete. Its shape reminds me of Tuscan bread (very old Tuscan bread) and its about the same size. I was hoping to find some trilobites hiding underneath but all there was is a Bryozoan colony. If you have ever collected or have an affinity towards extinct corals then maybe you to would have been excited as I was when I found this coral lying in a gully on a warm spring day. Mikey
  19. Please see attached pics Thank you Christy
  20. Favosite?

    Hello, I found this rock yesterday which I suspect is a fossil of some kind, but I'm not sure. Some pictures made me think it could be a favosite but I'm not sure. Sorry about the pictures, I couldn't find my good camera.
