Hey everyone, Happy new year! I was thinking about doing a top 10 similar to Paleo Neals post (awesome post by the way!) but I’ve struggled to find the time to go through 10 of my best finds and share them. I’m also curious what everyone else found in 2019! So slight change...I’ll share a few of my favorite finds from 2019 and I invite people from the forum to share some of their memorable finds from 2019. I’d love to see how everyone did! I’ll do 1 find from the Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian for 3 total. I could do more but I’ll keep it to these 3. I’ll start Ordovician I found this gravicalymene last year at a spot I now have permission to visit. The Ordovician rock of New York can be incredibly prolific but literally everything is private. Looking forward to sharing my finds from this site in 2020. Isotelus and Triarthrus are at this location too. It’s one of my “best” finds because of the possibilities on the horizon! now the Silurian This is my best eurypterid find of 2019 by leaps and bounds. Amazing little juvenile with a paddle and 4 walking legs. I doubt it but it’s possible a right paddle exists. Let’s hope I can keep finding these critters in 2020. lastly the Devonian I found this in April during the Forum group hunt at a now closed location (Briggs rd). It had big Eldredgeops there but now it is being developed on. This had split right through the trilobite and had a bunch in the counterpart. I had to tease out the trilo from the counter part and glue. Proud of this nice 2+ inch beast. In 2020 I’m going to see if I can find a new spot for Eldredgeops. Kinda sad about the loss of this location for collecting. Lets see your best finds from 2019!!! Al
