Found 19 results

  1. Plant

    I found this in a gravel pit at the south east end of Moose Mt. in Maine. The fossils I find there have been exclusively marine invertebrates so I was trying to see perhaps scaphopod traces. The dark edges were hard to explain until I realized that this is what the plants that I find up in far north eastern Maine look like except in isn't flattened. Ya think ? oops end view pending.
  2. Devonian bivalve

    Found in Maine glacial drift. Most likely Pragian - Emsian aged. Bivalve ? Anything distinctive enough to say more ?
  3. Encrustation

    Found in glacial drift in north western Maine. The rock type is a good match for Tarratine sandstone. Lower Devonian marine delta deposits. I've walked by this fossil so many times it's like an old friend. I had always assumed it to be a bivalve with weathered out pyrite crystals. It was exposed on a small gravel beach as I skied by this morning so I decided to give it a look. I think I have been wrong. What do you think ?
  4. Location: SE Portage County, Central Wisconsin, USA. Geology: South Western advance of Green Bay Glacial Lobe. Former Glacial Lake Oshkosh. Niagara Escarpment Debris. My land. Ordovician onward. Is this a Straparollous? Holopea pyrene? Left some slightly blurry photos in to show cm size. The part in question is about .4 cm deep by 1.5 cm wide. There is also what might be a bivalve to the right of it, and maybe, chain coral. Dunno about what is shown on reverse. Looking for potential ID on all and anything else someone might see. Wondering if I should give this a toilet bowl cleaner (diluted) bath? The “snail” appears to be a quartz replacement. I did initial cleaning in Biz detergent for about 24 hours, repeatedly and several days in Oxyclean. Brushed after each soak with polyester bristle brush. Did not want to destroy the crystals above specimens, so avoided wire brush. Please let me know what you think. I also want to be sure I am using correct tags here. Since my land contains Ordovician onward period, should I just list Ordovician as the period? Also, how many tags are appropriate? Should they just be location found and potential period, or should they contain generic terms such as snail? If anyone else here is using an IPhone SE for photos and knows some ways to set it, I would be appreciative. I have been unable to figure out how to change the settings for photographing specimens. The camera has a mind of it’s own, and focuses on whatever it wants, even though I am doing everything that my provider told me to do to change the settings for macro. She said phone is capable of it, but required my digging into the depths, which I did. When I transfer photos from phone to computer they come up at 72 DPI. I am using Photoshop elements to change resolution and size, which usually causes photos to be blurry. Upon transfer, I have photos that are about 40 Meg. Once I adjust the size, they are down to less than 2 Meg. Then adjust focus and color cast to be as realistic as possible. I have figured out the best time of day for taking photos with my portable photo tent, LED light and natural light through patio doors. Also made a stable phone holder to help prevent blurry photos. Thinking there has to be an easier way, as each photo I post takes about 5-10 minutes total. Sorry, obsessive compulsive newbie here, lol. Thanks for looking and any comments appreciated. If my ID is off, no problem. top 3 3-16-4 3-16-3 3-16-2 3-16-2 3-16-1 3-16-8 3-16-9 3-16-10 3-16-12 3-26-6 shell side1 Fernwood Acres, on Flickr side 2 snail 1c Thank you.
  5. This fossil was dug up fishing recently in Kankakee County, Illinois, where the bedrock is Silurian, but this fossil would have to be Pleistocene. Any help with ID is appreciated. I do not have possession so these are the only photos I have. If you provide an ID, please provide your reasoning. Thanks!
  6. Maine trace

    Seemed like a good time to get this up. It was found in Little Brassua lake in north western Maine (low water, shallow lake). It is from glacial material that is most likely lower Devonian marine sediments.
  7. Fossilized hole

    Is this a burrow ? I'm sort of leaning toward it being a fluid or gas venting feature myself. It was found on the shore of Moosehead Lake just south of where the fossiliferous, upper Silurian, Forks turbidite crosses it. The breaks are likely caused by the thrust of ice as it forms and expands against the shoreline in that spot. Car sized boulders can be displaced several feet by the force. The blue line indicates roughly the position of the hole. It passes all the way through, with a slight bend and constriction in the center.
  8. Devonian shell

    Another shoreline glacial find. Most likely lower Devonian marine delta related. The first shot shows part with scale, and inverted counterpart to the left. The last shot is of the under side of the fractured section in the photo before it.
  9. Pygidium +

    The low angle of sunlight on lakeshore glacial material made this pygidium an easy find, but what is the other thing with it ? The likely age is Pragian- Emsian. One more.
  10. Sponge again

    From lake shore glacial deposits adjacent to the Hurricane Mt. formation. Terms like altered and dynamic are used to describe the formation, but the sponge Diagoniella was used to date the deposits. Could this be an example ?
  11. chaetetid ?

    I've had poor luck with sponge posts in the past. Have I at least got these right ? They are from north eastern Maine. The rocks are likely Silurian/Devonian in age.
  12. small unknown

    Long shot, but the texture might mean something.
  13. roots ?

    First trip of the year. Top rim of the gravel pit. Things here are typically lower Devonian and below. Most of it is marine, but plant fossils are found north of here. The closest I come to recognizing the matrix is the volcanic (ash) west side of the Lobster Lake formation.
  14. Stromatoporoid 2

    Is this one more recognizable ? It occurred to me that a lot of people may not know what the real structure of these is. Figured it wouldn't hurt to make sure I'm not one of them
  15. Stromatoporoid ?

    This was found loose in a gravel bank.
  16. What is this stone and what are the lines??

    Hi all, This is more of a geology question but the attached item is sandstone. I don't think sandstone is known for fossils-us it? Anyway the attached lines in the stone intrigue me. I was told these may be from a glacier. Someone said a plow but where it was found was never plowed but on a Native American site. Anyway , are these grooved fossils, glacial or man made such as abrading?
  17. Shell ID, please help

    I was hammering a large chunk of limestone when this popped out. I dug the original rock out of the ground in southern Macon County, IL. From all of the ISGS information that I've read, I know this particular location lies atop the Shelbyville Moraine. I hope that's enough information for everyone. Thanks, Matt
  18. I looks real, but you can't start a camp fire with this. The species is unknown, but I like to imagine perfect pigmentary replacement.
