  1. Mystery hypostome in need of ID

    Hello everyone! So I was cleaning off a rock today and on it I found this tiny hypostome. I was wondering if anybody has an idea of what species this may have come from. This rock came from a site in North-Central NY that exposes the Ordovician Trenton Group. Thanks for looking!
  2. Greetings everybody! While I was on my fishing trip last weekend I took some time to look for fossils. I collected at a couple of creeks exposing the Middle Ordovician Trenton Group in North-Central NY. I found lots of trilo-bits and other goodies! Enjoy
  3. Hi everyone, an interesting fossil was found near Montague NY, most likely Glenerie Formation. Can this be the tail section of a Trilobite? Can anyone help with species ID if possible? Thanks to all that can help
  4. Paleoniscoid fishes

    Here’s a upper Devonian paleoniscoid fish I found in 18 mile creek - Erie county,NY this spring. seems to be similar to fish found in younger stratigraphy Linton deposits from Ohio area. Been hard to find any specific info on Devonian fish found in New York, perhaps a rare find? Has anyone found anything similar in western NY?
  5. Creek Bug

    Creek Bug Eldredgeops rana (Trilobite) Middle Devonian, Moscow formation New York I found this trilobite in Sept. 2019 and never shared it. Or did I Anyway, I was hiking in a stream going from one location to another and found this trilobite after my girlfriend stepped on it Not her fault really. She's busy looking out for spiders, webs to spiders, and giant web wrapping people up spiders. I saw the telltale black of the trilobites exo and knew what it was (note the algae staining on the matrix). This site isn't a place where we go to collect bugs. This is our fossil coral location with the occasional trilobite. The bugs at this site tend to be on the big side and this is no exception. Your average complete Eldredgeops from NY is around an inch. If this bug was outstretched, it would be 3.1" or 78.74mm. I cleaned it up a little but the matrix that is still on the trilobite is very hard. My main focus was, is there a pygidium or not, so that had to be dug out. I think the coolest thing about this specimen is that it survived millions of years and who knows how long as a waterworn cobble in a stream after some cute girl steps on it. Happy Collecting
  6. Yesterday, Tim (Fossildude19) and myself met at our usual meeting spot and with Tim driving and his downloads playing, we headed north to a planned rendezvous with the New York Paleontological Society's outing at Cobleskill Stone Products just outside Schoharie, N.Y. The weather was gorgeous- perfect really, sunny mid-50s. Fall colors were in full swing. We drove through the northern edge of the Catskills, arriving early at our rendezvous, the parking lot at the Cobleskill Stone Company. It was my first time there since 2013. I went on two previous NY Paleontological Society outings to this site, access tightly restricted. I had wanted to return, but every year there always seemed to be a conflict. One year I recall there was a planned Fossil Forum gathering at DSR on the same day. There were many reasons I wanted to return: The quarry had the best exposure of the Kalkberg Formation I've ever encountered. The Kalkberg is Lower Devonian, part of the Helderberg Group. Marine fossils are especially abundant and well preserved. The biodiversity is exceptional. There are many species of brachiopods, plus corals, nautiloids, bryozoans, the sponge, Hindia, and trilobites. Since the quarry is infrequently hunted, many specimens can be found exposed, even weathered clean right out of the limestone. Many of my best Kalkberg fossils are from there. I was excited to be there. It is always a pleasure to be out collecting with Tim. It was his first time at this quarry. Here are a couple pictures of the quarry. Notice the bright fall colors in the background.
  7. Possible Trilobite?

    While hiking some park trails yesterday we came across a limestone embankment that was significantly eroded. Lots of Bracciopods, but we found one different one. Located in Saugerties, NY. Is this a part of a trilobite?

  9. Last week started normally, and ended with me driving from NYC to the Finger Lakes, the chauffeur for my fiance and her maid of honor for a half-week getaway (after 6 months of lockdown). With no plans of my own, I read a little about the area and saw mention of trilobites being found. My dad has a trilobite on the mantle when I was growing up, so I read further and saw many were found in a stream bed near where we were staying, and all of a sudden I was making plans to go fossil hunting. Luckily I found this forum and other resources in my quick search and learned the stream in question is on private property. I identified a number of public that looked similar/nearby on google maps terrain, and decided to look there. I made a few outings myself while they did their thing, and we all made a few stops along our drive and looked together a couple times. It was my first time, and it started slow. At one road stop my fiance found what might have been coral? Then I found a worm-looking thing at a roadside waterfall, but it cracked when i picked it up again. It was when I/we went to Clark Gully and Bare Hill Unique Area near Lake Canandaigua, and Kashong Creek near Lake Seneca that we really found some neat things (which I'll start posting below). I know very little about fossils but have ordered a book and started reading through this forum and other resources to learn more about what I found. I know the area is known for Devonian fossils, so I'm working from the assumption that these are from around then. In the meantime, I've given them all a gentle cleaning; I tried scrubbing gently with both dish soap and vinegar, the former seems to work better, but I'm trying to be as careful as possible to not damage anything until I know what I am doing. These first three fossils we found at Kashong in the stream bed. We found lots of amalgamations of shell imprints/other things, but these 3 really stood out. The first one you can really see the difference from before and after cleaning, in terms of the detail. Im afraid to do much more, and am open to any suggestions as I post some more! (Before cleaning) (After cleaning) Front view, before cleaning (Before cleaning) (After very, very gentle cleaning) (After cleaning) Thanks to this forum for helping me quickly brush up on the basics and find these guys, it was really fun!

  12. Not another dinosaur egg....

    I found this in Nyack, NY near the water, close to where fossils have been discovered before. It looks as though it has some of the characteristics often discussed in this forum in regards to fossilized eg gs. Please forgive me if this is another river stone...
  13. My son and I got our first trip looking for fossils in! We checked out a road cut exposing some Lower Devionian rocks and found a chunk of rock that looked like it came loose with the recent rains we had. There were a ton of Brachiopods in it. We didn't really dig around in the rocks or split anything. We really were just looking on the surface, but I want to learn more about actually finding fossils that are not just loose. We also checked out the rock formations in our backyard, which we only found 1 really tiny Brachiopod in it, despite a lot of searching what was visible on the surface! Lots to learn and we are looking forward to it! The formation in the photo is the one in our backyard. I am not sure how to search it yet thoughtfully though. I am also not sure of the geology of this area yet and we are searching for more information on it. Overall, we had a blast!
  14. Sorry, the quarter was all I could find for a scale reference. My 8 year old spotted this in an area with lots of small Devonian fossils (crinoids, etc.). I thought this looked a bit like a portion of a eurypterid, but I am very inexperienced, and would not be surprised to find that I am waaaaaay off base. Any help with an ID would be very much appreciated! Thanks!
  15. Central New York

    I’ve been out hunting three times since my first trip a few weeks ago. Today my whole family spent a few hours at DSR. It took a long time, but I finally found my first complete trilobite!
  16. Hi y'all, I went to the AMNH literally days before NY (and the world) shut down. There definitely seemed to be less people than I presumed was usual. Despite spending just a couple of hours there, I can say it's my favorite museum. Unlike many museums, most of the specimens on display are complete or mostly actual fossils. I really want to go back to take my time and comb through the entire museum. I wish I took more pictures - guess I was too busy admiring it all. You can tour the museum yourself on Google Earth (the link should drop you right into the Saurichian hall). I realize there are several other topics about the AMNH, but I figured I could contribute some new/more views of the same specimens or at least a couple of new things. Façade:
  17. Possible crinoid? We’re new to this!

    Hi there, thanks for your help. My son, eight years old, found this great rock while out on a hike in Central new York. We are trying to identify if it is an imprint, and some basic search is seem to point to a crinoid imprint. Can anyone give us more information about this? Thank you!
  18. Greetings forum members! I was looking through the last rocks from my latest fossil hunt and I found this interesting piece. Its a partial Pterygotid body segment! I had broken it and I thought I had thrown it back but apparently I kept like 80% of it. I glued it back together as best I could last night and was looking more closely when I found something interesting. I’m not completely sure but I have a hunch that the one end of this fossil might have predation marks from a larger Pterygotid. Could this be true or did it just break weird when it was molted? I was wondering if anybody on the forum could help me out with this. Thanks for looking! Owen
  19. New York Devonian Trip

    Hey everyone, Just last week I took a camping trip to Watkins Glenn with my family. While there, I took advantage of the wonderful exposures prevalent in central NY and took to collect a plethora of Devonian age fossils. The first two days of the trip were solely dedicated took hiking and camping activities such as visiting the deep gorges present in the finger lakes area. You can see the steep walls of shale exposed along the gorge.

  24. Hey all. I'm in my last year of high school in brooklyn and I am extremely passionate about paleontology, but I don't know which school in NYC would be able to cater to my aspirations. There are a couple of cunys with geology but I cannot find any with programs in paleontology.
