  1. Hello everyone! This past Sunday, while I was at the "Dig with the Experts" event at Penn Dixie in Hamburg, NY, I found something a little different from my usual finds. I think it's a gastropod, but I'm not at all sure, so I was hoping for your input. The specimen is about 5mm in diameter, and you can see it in the eight pictures below - thanks in advance for your help! Oh, and the age is mid-Devonian. Monica @DevonianDigger - are these pictures more helpful? Thanks again!
  2. Hungry Hollow epibiont help

    Hello everyone! This past Saturday, Viola and I braved the cold to do some fossil collecting in the south pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario (Mid-Devonian). When I got home and washed up my specimens, I saw something interesting on one of the horn corals - I think it's a brachiopod - am I right? And does anyone know its identity? Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  3. Hungry Hollow fossils!

    Hello all! It's a dreary day, so I'm trying to organize some of my fossils into my new display cabinets, and I was hoping to get some help with identifications. All of the fossils below were found in the south pit of Hungry Hollow near Arkona, Ontario. The age is mid-Devonian. Thanks in advance for all of your help! Monica Photo #1: Definitely a coral, but which one? A type of Favosites, perhaps? Photo #2: Another coral - perhaps Alveolites goldfussi? Photo #3: Still another coral - perhaps Platyaxum frondosum? Photo #4: I have no idea what this brown thing is - help! Photo #5: A trilobite pygidium - can anyone tell which trilo? Photo #6: A brachiopod - no idea which one... Photo #7: Three brachiopods - again, I don't know their identity/ies Photo #8: Two brachiopods - I used to think they were both Devonochonetes scitulus, but up close they appear to look a little different to me - what do you think? Photo #9: The back of the rock from Photo #8 - any idea what those black fragments are?! Photo #10: A pyritized bivalve (thanks, Adam @Tidgy's Dad!) - again, I'm at a loss as to what its identity is Photos #11 and #12: A Mucrospirifer brachiopod, but I'm wondering - is that the lophophore that I see inside of it, or is it just the valve that's been crushed inwards?
  4. Hello everyone! Yesterday, Viola and I were able to visit Hungry Hollow (near Arkona, Ontario), and we had a wonderful time! When we last visited the site back in April, it was cold and cloudy; yesterday, it was hot and sunny, and there were no bugs to bother us, so we were in the South Pit collecting fossils the entire time (about 3.5 hours). Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures, but I blame that on all of the fossils that were calling to me - they wouldn't let me take a break to take pictures! In all seriousness, though, it was a fantastic day out with my little girl - please enjoy the pictures I do have to share with you. Oh, and for those of you that aren't familiar with the rocks at Hungry Hollow - they are Mid-Devonian. Picture #1: Viola just before we headed into the South Pit Picture #2: Viola searching for brachiopods (as usual!) Picture #3: a spiny brachiopod - does anyone know its identity? @Kane Picture #4: a couple of "mommy and baby" Mucrospirifer thedfordensis (I think!) brachiopods - Bob O'Donnell found and gave the one on the right to Viola, while I found and am going to keep the one on the left so we each have one to remember our times together fossil-hunting Picture #5: a gastropod - Platyceras sp. - does anyone know the species name? Picture #6: I found my own Tornoceras sp. - hooray!!! Back in April, Bob found one and gave it to Viola, and I have to admit that I was a little envious because they're so pretty. Well, yesterday I found this specimen, and it's a really pretty shade of purple - I'm in love (Is the species name arkonense, by the way?) Picture #7: A coral with an epibiont on top of it - someone yesterday (I believe his name was Darren - he also gave Viola a bottle of water while we were in the pit - a very nice guy!) told me what it is, but I can't recall what he said. Any ideas? Picture #8: This is probably my favourite hash plate that I found yesterday because there is so much going on - bryozoans, corals, and crinoids - oh my! And perhaps a bit of a trilobite peeking out near the top...? Well that's all for now. I'll likely add more photos after we wash Viola's finds and look through all of our fossils more carefully. Thanks for reading! Monica
  5. Hungry Hollow fossils

    Hi everyone! I'm finally starting to go through some of the things that Viola and I found when we visited Hungry Hollow back in April in preparation of doing a trade, and I was looking for some help with identifying the following items: Item #1, front and back: A tabulate coral perhaps? I think I can see corallites in the "back" photo... (or maybe a bryozoan...) Item #2, front and back: Another tabulate coral? (or perhaps another bryozoan...) Item #3, front and back: A bryozoan? This one looks different - it kind of looks like frilly layers... Thanks in advance! I may end up posting more stuff so keep an eye out for more requests for help!!! Monica
  6. Hi everyone! Well, Viola and I have officially expanded our fossil-hunting area to include Hungry Hollow!!! We joined in on a field trip organized by the Niagara Peninsula Geological Society this past Saturday, April 29th, and we spent 3 fairly cold and windy hours scouring the South Pit for fossils. Luckily, the pit's rocks are incredibly fossiliferous, so we came away with many specimens. Here are a few pictures of our adventure... Picture #1: Viola in the centre of the pit, looking for little things like brachiopods and bactrites: Picture #2: Viola at the side of the pit holding up her favourite solitary rugose coral: Picture #3: Most of our haul for the day: Picture #4: Some nice hash plates from the pit, mostly containing brachiopods and Tentaculites sp.: Picture #5: SO many rugose corals in the pit!!! Picture #6: A bunch of things, including brachiopods (Mucrospirifer arkonensis and others), crinoid bits, bryozoans, corals, smaller hash plates, and my favourites: pyritized bactrites: Picture #7: A pretty star-shaped encrusting bryozoan (Botryllopora socialis) on the side of a rugose coral: Picture #8: Some organisms on a Mucrospirifer arkonensis - perhaps a couple of gastropods or ammonoids, a bit of encrusting bryozoan, as well as a couple of tiny ostracods (maybe): Picture #9: An Eldredgeops rana cephalon (partial): Picture #10: A trilobite pygidium - it's orange and oh-so-cute!!! I have to thank @Bob for showing Viola and I around the pit, and telling us about the fossils that we were finding - he was an amazing help!!! We had such a great time - hopefully we'll be able to visit again soon!!! Monica (and Viola)
  7. Leaving this afternoon to go to White Have PA to see my 1 daughter and baby grandson, and staying the night. Going to look for some quartz crystals at White Haven, that's where she lives. Then in the morning I have to be in East Stroudsburg PA for some business and after that's done I'm going to Beltzville State Park. I've been wanting to go there for the last 2 months or so but it never worked out. Now it does and I'm going fossil hunting. I'm excited about it! Plus while I'm driving I'll be on the lookout for some interesting road cuts. Can't wait! I'll post pics of my finds later in the weekend and let you know how it went.
  8. Need Fossil Id

    I have a fossil that I found that I don't know what it is. I found it in Perry County PA. It's Middle Devonian, limestone & shale mix. The fossil itself is a little bigger than a half dollar. It kind of looks like maybe an anenome, maybe? I would appreciate any and all help. Thank you!
