  1. Gastropod

    I found this Gastropod in the same rock as the topic ("no idea what so ever"). Tully Limestone, Cortland Cnty., Central New York, Middle Devonian. This one is a bit different. I think the id is: Platyceras carinatum(from the "Field Guide to Devonian Fossils" page174-175). Am I close? Approx. 29mm or 1 1/8" long X 13mm or 9/16" wide. Thanks Greg
  2. Found in Tully Limestone, Cortland Cnty., Central NY, Middle Devonian I assume this is a juvenile Dipleura dekayi trilobite (approx. 1" across)...Cephalon only. Greg
  3. no idea what so ever

    I have no idea what this is...but, I've found two of them in the same rock. I've not the slightest idea on even where to start looking. The first is easy to spot(approx 1" X 1/2"), the second has a pin towards it(approx. 3/4"). Thanks Greg
  4. Bivalve?

    Here's Bivalve(I think). The closest Id I could find is: Pteriomorphia ambonychiacea. But, usually when I think I've id'd something... I'm wrong...what do others think?
  5. Two Brachiopods

    I have been unable to find these two Brachiopods in my books. I would like to know if anyone can id them for me. I have to add that I "assume" the first is a Brachiopod. I have looked in Lower, Middle and upper Devonian Brachiopods of NY and also Devonian Bivalves of NY. Thanks Greg
  6. Cephalon

    This one has really got me. I can't figure out it's orientation. I've looked for id and the closest I can come up with is Viaphacops cristatus. But, not "seeing it...don't know. I think this is the correct direction...with the Trilopod looking up...but on the right side of the photo(on top of this direction) what would be it's back...the edge of the exoskeleton is convex...which doesn't make sense either, as shown in the 2nd photo. Thanks Greg
  7. two strange fossils

    I've come across these two fossils...not sure what to make of the "cigar shaped" one(1 5/8" X 5/8")...not a clue where to look for an ID. The second one..."snail shaped"( 5/8")... I guess I should start under "Gastropods". Thanks Greg
  8. cephalopod mold?

    This is a "mud mold" that I found in the creek near King Ferry, NY. Approx. 8 inches long. I've been told its a cephalopod. Thanks Greg
  9. Fenestrate bryozoan prep

    Hello all! I found this pretty cool bryozoan back in July and I decided to give it a prep. Its really easy matrix to work with so its good practice for someone like me who’s only done a handful of preps. Like my past preparations, this will all be done manually using mainly safety pins. Fenestella sp. ? Middle Devonian Hamilton Group Moscow Formation Windom Shale DSR, Lebanon, NY Enjoy!
  10. What it this?

    Found in the same layer as the Bryozoan. Approx. 2" X 3/16".
  11. Turrilepas nitidulus - armored worm plate

    From the album Fossildude's Middle Devonian Hamilton Group Fossils

    Turrilepas nitidulus - Machaeridian/armored worm plate. Western NY. Middle Devonian, Hamilton Group Windom Shale, Smoke Creek West Seneca, NY.

  12. Coral or Sponge?

    I found this yesterday during my creek walk. It appears to either be a Coral or Sponge atop a Concretion. It also has the "mud" on top which is fairly common...but it's very hard. It was found between the Upper Tully and Lower Tully formation which are both Limestone, between is black shale. The diameter on top is approx. 10"-12" and the reveal of the side is approx. 6". Thanks Greg
  13. Coprolite?

    Any ideas on what this is? It was whole but cracked, all I had to do was to pick it up of the rock it was sitting on. Unfortunately, I either missed a section or dropped it.
  14. Here are some of the cephalopod fossils from my latest fossil hunting trip. Enjoy!
  15. Hi fellow forum members! So a while back I went on a field trip with the NYPS to a couple spots in central NY. Both spots were middle Devonian hamilton group. The first spot was Windom shale, and I believe the second spot was Upper Ludlowville. I started working on a trip report but only ended up doing the arthropods. I completely forgot about all of my other fins lol. Now I’m going to show some of my best non-arthropod fossils from the trip. Enjoy!
  16. Well, it's been a while since I was able to get out and get some hunting in. Between social distancing, yard work, a tricky lower back issue, and the occasional migraine, I hadn't been able to get out except once, since before the pandemic started. Jeffrey P and I had plans for August 2nd to go out, and I was sidelined by a migraine. No fun. We rescheduled to August 9th. On August 8th, the trick back acted up. Uggh. I really did not want to bail again! Did some stretches, and a bit of work on my elliptical on Saturday, and ended up being OK for Sunday morning. So, ... I got up at 4:15 AM. Made some coffee, packed some things, and my gear, and headed off to meet Jeff at our usual meet up spot, an hour away from my home. We both got there at the same time. Said hello, and switched my gear over to Jeff's car. Within minutes, we were off. After about an hour and a half, and a stop for gas and snacks in the small town of Roscoe, NY, we headed up towards Deep Springs Road. I had not been to DSR since last year, and Jeff hadn't been there since the beginning of spring. We were both looking forward to getting out and finding some neat fossils, as we always do when we go to DSR. On the 3.5 hour drive to the site, we caught up, discussed Jeffrey's prodigious finds from his recent trips to the Cretaceous of NJ, listened to a wide variety of music (Thanks Jeff, for turning me on to the Smoke Fairies!) and discussed our lock down experiences during this pandemic. After an hour and 45 minutes, we arrived. The day was beautiful, not overly hot, with a bit of a breeze here and there. We got to work almost immediately. We worked for a bit to free a huge bench Jeff had started the last time he was there. Got it loosened by the end of the day, but no joy with moving it. Someone else will likely enjoy the fruits of our labors. Oh well. I wandered off to do my walk and split thing, finally settling on the lower level in the middle, where I have had good luck with Greenops trilobites, and the enigmatic phyllocarids found at the site. While working that area, I found a few nice Greenops sp. rollers, a few Rhinocaris phyllocarid bits, along with a nice on-edge prone-ish (albeit bit crumpled up) example. I found that specimen shortly after the arrival of @FossilJen and her son. We welcomed them and answered a few questions, showed them a few finds, and I gifted the specimen I had just found to the curious newbies. Hopefully we made a good impression, and have hooked a few more people into the fossil hunting addiction. At this point, I took a break for water and some food. It was hot under the sun! I moved up higher into the quarry, where there was plentiful shade. I'd never worked up there before, but I was finding trilobits and trilobutts, frequently. A few decent things were found, including some plant material, some neat brachiopods, a few bryozoan encrusted gastropods, a tiny Eldredgeops roller, an Echinocaris phyllocarid valve, and a partial Greenops sp prone trilobite. By this time, it was getting late, and we were getting a bit tuckered out. l did a bit more wandering, and came upon this, sitting on the edge of the outcrop on the second level of the quarry, near the middle of the site. This was a partial imprint of a 5.5 or 6 inch prone Dipleura dekayi! There was no way to remove this in one piece, (at least in the time we had left!) so I collected it via photograph. After shaking my head for a bit, we packed up, and got on the road. After a bit of a drive, we stopped at our favorite Scottish restaurant, had dinner, and continued on our way. At around 8:45 PM we arrived at our meet up spot, said our goodbyes, and headed home. I was home by around 10:20 PM. exhausted, but happy to have gotten out and made some decent finds. Photos to follow. Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoy. Continued:
