  1. Any kid friendly sites near Indianapolis Area? Will travel back to Wisconsin from South Carolina. Look to stretch our legs and my boys 6 and 4 years old loves to hunting fossils. Road cuts is out of question unless have parking lot. I don't want to put kids in harm. Maybe dry creek bed? Heard that we can find crinoid stems. Will be in that area not this weekend but next weekend. Thank you.
  2. Last weekend, since the weather was supposed to be nice and my wife was out of town, I decided to get out and collect from three Pennsylvanian sites in Illinois and Indiana. On Friday, I took the day off work and headed down to the former Chieftain no.20 mine site south of Terre Haute, in what is now the Griffin Bike Park. It was an overcast day with a slight drizzle and I had the park all to myself. I found a nice assortment of nodules, including a few split ones with ferns- the one on the left, although preserved in three pieces, is my biggest one yet from this site. The best find didn't come until I cleaned them after I got home, though. What I thought was a slim fern pinnule turned out to be a millipede, my first! No Myriapoda have been reported from this site, and the preservation is not perfect, so I am not sure what the ID would be for this one. The next day I met up with my dad and enjoyed an outrageously beautiful day at Mazonia-Braidwood in northern Illinois collecting Mazon Creek nodules. I was glad I brought sunscreen! None of the split nodules I found had anything spectacular, just a few nice Essexella, but we found a good assortment of concretions and got to explore a portion of the park I had not been to before. I was also able to educate some folks we met in the parking lot who were visiting from Missouri about what to look for when collecting fossils in the park and shared some of my extra split nodules to make sure they didn't go home empty-handed. It's always a pleasure seeing other fossil collectors in the park.
  3. Given all of the trauma, paranoia, panic, and birdseed in the news, I though news fluff about fossils is in order. Students search for sea-creature fossils off roadcut in Indiana By Julie Havlak, The Collegain, April 6, 2017 http://hillsdalecollegian.com/2017/04/students-search-sea-creature-fossils-off-roadcut-indiana/ Also, some cute cat pictures are needed to rest the sole: Emergency Kittens https://twitter.com/EmrgencyKittens Yours, Paul H.
  4. This is a trip to St. Leon, Indiana (Late Ordovician), that I took on Tuesday the 28th. Weather was cloudy, 66 deg. F. Conditions were wet and muddy, but a lot of fresh material had weathered out and was exposed from the winter. More or less typical finds. The complete Ambonychia steinkern was the trip-maker for me. Here is a view of the roadcut.

    Isotelus maxiumus or I. gigas (juv.) (Trilobita) Late Ordovician: Waynesville or Liberty Formation St. Leon, Indiana, USA This is several views of an enrolled juvenile. It is complete except for the missing genal spines, and the exoskeleton is intact. The dark brown areas are pyritization.

  12. Short trip to St. Leon Indiana yielded 5 trilobites. 3 complete enrolled including one that is fairly but for St. Leon and probably the largest one I have found complete at at. Leon.1 complete prone trilo and 1 mostly complete prone. 4 of the 5 were typical tiny St. Leon Trilobites.

  20. Hi all, I was going to wait to post this trip report after I had time to wade through the brachiopod literature and put a name on the brachiopods. But, if I do that, this will be a history report (if some of you are inclined to save me some time and know the identity, please chime in ). This is a trip taken to Sulphur, IN, on March 16, 2017. The fossils come from the Big Clifty Formation (sensu lato) and some specifically from the Indian Springs Shale member of the Big Clifty Formation. The cut exposes Late Mississippian: Early and Middle Chesterian deposits. I forgot to take photos of the exposure, but there are plenty on the web. Here are the fruits of this particular trip: Zaphrentites spinulosa (Cnidaria: Anthozoa: Rugosa) Connularia sp. fragment (Incertae sedis; Cnidaria: Scyphozoa?)
  21. These are Carboniferous fossils preserved within sideritic concretions found near Terre Haute Indiana.They were collected from the Busseron Sandstone Member of the Shelburn Formation, in shales above the coal seam Coal (No. 7) and are dated from the Middle Pennsylvanian, which correlates with the Westphalian D. Macroneuroptis are common at the location that I collect but this is the first Trifolate Macroneuropteris that I've found.When it first split only one of the ovoid shaped basal pinnules was exposed. A tap of the hammer exposed the second basal pinnule and I secured it with a little glue. Unfortunately the apex of this leaf is missing but I was still happy to have found it.
  22. Here are a couple of small nodules that I photographed last weekend.Even after observing the photos I’m still stumped.They were found near Terre Haute Indiana.They were collected from the Busseron Sandstone Member of the Shelburn Formation, in shales above the coal seams of the Dugger Formation and are dated from the Middle Pennsylvanian, which correlates with the Westphalian D. The first one looks a little sphenophyllumish. The second may be an isolated sporangium from a cone bract,a seed or maybe just a pyrite deposit Just thought I’d let the collective brain of the Fossil Forum have a look.Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  23. Does anyone know what this is? To me it resembles a tooth of some sort. I found it in Indiana years ago and have just been going through some old finds.
  24. This is a fragment of shark tooth (?) I collected yesterday. Hoping someone will recognize the unique texture and be able to associate it with a known taxon. This is from the Big Clifty Formation in Indiana (Mississippian: Chesterian). Ruler increments in photo are 0.5 mm.
  25. I will be visiting The University of Notre Dame for a few days in May and would love to get a Quick Fossil trip or 2 in while in the area.. SO i am looking for recommendations of spots to go within about 1 hour of South Bend. Ill be traveling light so Heavy digging is out. Thanks!
