  1. So Many Fossils!

    Wow. I recently got back from a trip to visit some family in Buffalo, New York and Canada, Eh?. In Buffalo my Aunt and Uncle have a house on Lake Erie. It never occurred to me to look for fossils on the beach (mostly rocks down there), until this trip. So I went down for about an hour or so and broke a few rocks but mostly just found the fossils lying around. I can tell you, this was the most productive hour of fossil hunting in my life. I could barely go a minute without stumbling on one! I don’t even know what to do with all these. A great expirece overall and my Uncle especially enjoyed seeing all the treasures. So without further a due here we go... (sorry if the pics are a bit blurry my camera is trash) Enjoy! Brachiopods and such
  2. I know this is a bit different than a traditional collecting trip story but... My friends and I have an inside joke that I can accidentally find a fossil anywhere, without any warning. I used to go upstate often, and there were numerous fishing locations with Devonian deposits. As it turned out, the gravel in the parking lot of the cabin we stayed at was from a bluestone quarry that was also fossiliferous. This blue quartzite would follow me around to this day. My best guess is it's from an Ordovician or Devonian deposit from some area north of the Hudson Valley. I have found several different Brachiopods in it, as well as some crinoids and 3 tiny Phacopsid Trilobite fragments. A couple of years ago, I was with a friend at a beach on Long Island. I was collecting shells and rocks, and came across a brachiopod 3 inches wide, right there on the beach. Same bluestone from upstate. Last year, I discovered an urban fishing spot that had recently been renovated has also utilized the same fossiliferous gravel, and I found a few nice brachiopods. More recently, the deposit has hit even closer to me: right on campus, in a new garden, the gravel lining! This has led to my best piece from the deposit yet, even over the phacops: A Brachiopod sitting in the middle of a calcite crystal! If anyone happens to have more information on this deposit, let me know! It shows up quite often around New York, apparently.

  9. Hello there! I visited @Malcolmt yesterday and he was nice enough to clean up some of my stuff from Penn Dixie (mid-Devonian), including the specimen below. I'm not exactly sure what it is, so I was hoping that someone out there will be able to help me with identifying this little guy, which I think is either a gastropod or a ammonoid - what do you think? These are all pictures of the same specimen, just from different angles. And it's pretty small - only 5mm across at its widest point. Maybe @DevonianDigger can help? Thanks for your help! Monica PS - We found a definite gastropod - a Platyceras of some sort - just barely exposed on the side of one rock, but it's kind of twisted and weird-looking, so Malcolm is going to work on it a bit more - after it's done, I'll post pictures of that little guy, too.
  10. Hello everyone, I found this large trilobite pygidium today which is the largest piece of trilobite I have ever found in the area, the pygidium measuring nearly 2 inches long. Judging by the trilobits I usually find I think the area is Devonian as I have trilobits I've previously found I believe are from eldregops and greenops. The problem with this site is it's imported material from somewhere in upstate new york so I'm not 100% percent sure. Though I believe it's devonian I don't know of any species with a pygidium this size personally so would anymore with more expertise help me find an ID of what species this can belong to, I'd love to know since I can't see myself coming across another one of these in the tiny area I get to look in.
