Kurufossils posted a topic in Fossil IDToday on a hunt in the lower devonian of new york, I found on of the most unusual piece and I can't decide if its bryzoan or possible placoderm.
I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else to compare this to. Any thoughts on this piece will be greatly appreciated as I've never come across anything like it at the site.
I found this fossil in NYS near a creek in Hillsdale. Any ideas on what it is?, It has defined grooves, curved shape like it's half of the bottom of a mushroom. Searched the web but saw nothing like it. Please let me know if you have any tips for me. Thanks. -mike
