  6. I have up for offer this little fella. He's not perfect, but he's a cute little ~2cm prone Eldredgeops rana with a nice little coral in association. He's got something weird going on on the right portion of his cephalon into the first few pleurae, but has really nice color and a great personality. I prepped him out to a degree, but I don't want to risk losing any more of his already damaged glabella. I'm offering him up in trade for another equally disrupted trilobite. Message me with any interest!
  7. I went back to Deep Springs rd last weekend. It was my 2nd time there. I couldn’t sit around on my Saturday off and do nothing lol. Fishing season doesn’t start till April 1st so March puts me in this odd limbo of waiting for the fun to begin. Now that I know how to get to DSR no problem and I live so close I will probably visit several times this year. It’s a really fun site for diversity. I want to see how much I can find and catalogue. Perhaps in the future I will make a little personal reference guide for DSR. Anyway. Pretty sure I found my first phyllocarid carapace this past weekend. It’s not much but I find it to be pretty cool. I have a phyllocarid mandible I found in the wanakah shale in Buffalo so it’s fun to try and find more of the animal. This is the part and counterpart of the larger specimen. I only have a scale on 1 but they are the same specimen. This is the smaller one I found with a scale. Im a big fan of these goniatites that come from DSR. I got a decent one last trip.
  8. Cannot ID fossil. Buffalo, New York

    Hello everyone! Thanks again to everyone who helped ID my last fossil (phyllocarid mandible) that had me confused. The weather is horrible in New York so I’m indoor fossil hunting haha (organizing old finds). I have another fossil here that I am pretty much stumped on as well. I’ve had it for several years....it’s something unknown to me. This came from Buffalo area in New York. I sadly don’t remember all the specifics of this find other than I most likely collected this from the Tichenor Limestone. I know for sure it’s from the Hamilton Group of western New York. Interesting looking “exoskeleton” type of fossil. Small only about 20-22mm (.75-.8 inches) give or take. Odd V shaped specimen and I don’t know if that’s the morphology or if it’s something folded...the would be “hinge” or “point” is gone to give me a clue. It has really nice orderly lines running along it and a “knob” on the longer side. Almost like an armor plate or somthing. I thought maybe plant material but it seems like preserved “hard parts” to me. I included a picture of the back of the limestone as it has a possible associated fossil also unknown to me....also “exoskeleton like” in appearance. I wish I knew more exact specifics of how and when I collected it but I hope the information I gave and pictures will be enough. Thanks, Al
  9. Hey everyone, Ive had this odd fossil for years and I do not know what it is. It’s from the Hamilton group, more specifically the lower Wanakah shale, Lake Erie shore Buffalo New York. I have a pic from a great publication I bought (got it in the mail today!) that shows a really great close up of the stratigraphic interval I found it in (Miller year?) it came from one of the 4 trilo beds, I think the top one. I rediscovered it while going through and organizing some old fossils. Now that I’ve joined the forum I have access to more resources! This fossil is 19mm (.75in) long....the length matches the diameter of a US penny. It appears segmented (4 segments) and I actually had to glue 2 segments back together. Each end segments have a peak of some sort. One end has a tall single peak and the other end has a segment with a double peak (but much smaller peaks than the tall single peak on the opposite side). The middle segments are more rounded. The fossil itself seems like remains you would see with trilobites.....that black colored exoskeleton remain on one side and shale on the other but I don’t think it’s a trilo. It just seems like it persevered in a similar way so I think it’s the remains of something “hard” made of calcium carbonate but idk what. I cant even guess.....I only had Grabau’s geology of 18 mile creek book for reference and I don’t see a match. Maybe I just don’t have the access to the paper/book describing this or I do and don’t know it. My guesses (not confident guesses lol) consist of.....conodont? Placoderm? Coprolite? Lump of nothing? Tooth of some kind? Thanks for reading and thank you to anyone that tries to ID this! Al
  10. My exploration/presentation of possible (I believe probable) siphuncle preservation in Michelinoceras that I found at smokes creek in Buffalo, New York. Enjoy! In the Hamilton group found in western New York (Wanakah shale, Windom Shale) you can find 2 straight shell nautilods known as Spyroceras and Michelinoceras. Both can be found throughout the Hamilton group but there is one particular bed at the base of the Wanakah shale on top of the Ledyard shale that has a high representation of Michelinoceras. The “Mt Vernon Bed” (seen in photo) is a very hard and concretionary calcareous shale with abundant cephalopods, Gastropods and some extra fauna mixed in. You can find this bed at smokes creek and rush creek behind Penn-Dixie in Buffalo, New York The scientist in me likes to collect type (exemplary) specimens...something represantive of the species I can refer to. Once I have a great specimen I’ll only collect other “type” (exemplary) quality specimens or rare “oddities”. I recently found some rare oddities stored away that I collected of Michelinoceras a few years ago. I decided to put some study time into them cause I never really looked at them hard. After some research and observation I think I know what I’m seeing and I’m going to share my thoughts but I would love to hear from some cephalopod experts! Pic 1 : stratigraphic setting Pic 2: type (exemplary) specimen typical of Mt Vernon bed. Pic 3: 2 large supplementary type (exemplary) specimens I have. The complete specimen actually shows very faint sipluncle evidence at the bottom of the picture. Pic 4: Bombshell specimen that allowed me to link and ID the specimen in picture 5 as a Michelinoceras. Pic 5: Partial Michelinoceras showing this same oddity seen in picture 3 and 4. I am going to follow up with more up close pictures and a few words/ evidence on what I think it is.
