  1. Thats new to me.

    Nassoviocrinus costatus (Goldring 1954) I posted recently about our latest fossil hunt in the Devonian of NY and showed you all the little crinoid we found. Whenever I find one of these ancient echinoderms that Im not familiar with, I show it to my friend George McIntosh of the RMSC. I sent some pics to George and he told me that it looks like Nassoviocrinus costatus. I never heard of that crinoid before so I had to look it up and learn a little. However, Index Fossils of NA was published in 1944 and this crinoid was described in 1954 and the internet shows very little about it (mostly publications by George ). I also couldn't find anything in the Treatise about it. If you have any information about this crinoid, I would appreciate it (especially photos). I have plans on getting this prepped and I will post the pics to this thread instead of starting another/separate post about it. I think its awesome that you can collect at the same locality for years and years yet still discover something new and exciting. Happy Collecting
  2. Need Crinoid refrence

    I have some beautiful crinoid stem cross-section impressions from the Devonian Mahantango in PA (runs from NY to VA) and have been searching all morning to find a good reference book that won't cost me $100 just to open the cover and see if it's adequate to the task at hand. Winifred Goldring seems to have done the definitive works, but she didn't include any cross sections! Can anybody point me in the right direction?
  3. Did I find a Devonian fish scale?

    A find at Tully NY the other day was bizarre compared with the usual stuff. Looks like a fish scale to my eye. Image was first hit on Google for images of “Devonian fish scales”. Example D and E look similar.
  4. Spring of 2020 We took advantage of the time off and the break in weather to hunt one of our favorite streams here in Western New York. This was just a spring scouting mission to see what was exposed after the ice and snow has melted. Some of the more interesting finds were a crinoid crown (very rare for this locality) possibly Logocrinus, Spinocyrtia granulosa open with both valves, Orthospirifer marcyi, a large Megastrophia concava cleaned by nature with epibionts, and 3 small nearly complete Greenops. We also found many small Favosites coral colonies, large Heliophyllum corals, and 8 different species of brachiopods. Happy Collecting!
  5. I spent yesterday trying out a location along the southwest corner of Tug Hill Plateau in Oswego County NY. There is a road cut exposure that is very weathered. Lots of crumbly mud- and silt-stone, interspersed with sandstone. I couldn’t get very low on the exposure because the river that the highway crosses was high, no shelf or margin of error to climb down. On the Rockd app, this is supposed to be late Ordovician Pulaski and Whetstone gulf, and I wanted to find trilobites. I think I found one fragile flexicalymene, Prasopora (chocolate drop bryozoan), and a big orthocone. Very few trilobite remains in any layer I examined. I hope to return this summer when the water of the river is low...
  6. Having struck out over an hour, I decided to turn over “just one more” slab, and bam! Nearly had a heart attack!
  7. Hi, I am doing an emergency Fossiling trip to Western New York State. My entire family is very high risk for corona, and I am just leaving my college, where there were a few cases of it. Although I technically Do not need to quarantine, I am planning to spend at least a week alone before I go home to make sure I am asymptotic. That being said I will be spending the week hunting the shakes of New York State. I have been to deep springs and I just wanted to make sure that it is still viable. I am also possibly going to go to penn Dixie, but my main goal is to isolate and get some quality fossil hunting done. Any possible fossil hunting spots would be much appreciated in that area or the area of penn Dixie, if they are spots that are not densely populated
  8. Plant or animal ID request

    I purchased a clump of rocks from a seller stating "rocks from NY fossil beds". I prepped the "rocks" and found some trilobite pieces and this. Is this a plant or animal?
  9. Leicester Pyrite Member. This layer between the Windom and the Geneseo black shale represents a sea of death. I find very few types of fossils in this hard to process layer of solid pyrite. Well preserved cephalopods and Placoderm armor (Placodermi is a class of armored prehistoric fish) are the most common fossils found. This very thin horizon can be easily found in the outcrop if you just look for rust dripping down and staining the grey shales below this pyrite layer. Every year or two, a piece of Leicester Pyrite will fall from its position high up in the outcrop and slide down to the creeks edge. It takes a lot of work to process the pyrite for fossils. Every blow with your hammer delivers the strong smell of sulfur and a ton of sparks. The reward for all this patience and hard work are fossils preserved in brilliant fools gold. This unit is also the only rocks in my area that routinely contain the armor of Placoderm fish.

  10. I met a teacher recently who showed me this trilobite that she found many years ago in western NY. It's probably Devonian, since other rocks she collected nearby contain apparent Phacops (Eldredgeops) tails. I know it would help a lot to have the head exposed, but before she pays for it to be prepped, she is wondering if anyone can ID it based on the exposed portion. I'm no a trilobite expert, but based on the tail I am wondering if it could be a proeitid such as Pseudodechenella, which I understand is pretty rare. Can anyone confirm that or offer other suggestions? Thanks!
  11. Ichnofossil?

    Found in the southern Adirondacks.. Northeastern Lake George. At about 600-700 feet above sea level. The stone itself measures about 12x14 cm.
  12. Hello all! We are planning a trip (with a stop in Pennsylvania) to New York this May to hunt for Trilobites and could use lots of advice. We live in North Carolina, so it is a bit of a haul and we are new to trilobite hunting and to rock splitting fossil hunting generally. I'll lay out the tentative itinerary first and then ask a few specific questions. Any recommendations on the itinerary (additions or places to skip on a limited trip) are, of course, more than welcome! Tuesday Day 0: Drive to Danville, PA and check into a hotel Wednesday Day 1: Visit the Montour Preserve fossil pit ; drive to Buffalo, NY Thursday Day 2: Visit 18 Mile Creek Friday. Day 3: Visit Penn Dixie Quarry (1) Saturday Day 4: Visit Penn Dixie Quarry (2) Sunday Day 5: Drive back to NC The big questions we have (apart from whether this itinerary seems like a good first trip for ambitious new trilobite hunters) are: What tools should we bring? I know safety glasses, chisel and geologic hammer, but what about larger picks, prybars, hammers, shovels, gloves, etc? I've read about people "digging out" an area at Penn Dixie; what is required for that? And what is involved? Is there any rhyme or reason to the pieces you choose to split? What do you look for in a spot? Is there anywhere else "nearby" (within a few hours of anywhere on the route) that we should check out? What am I forgetting to ask? Thank you so much in advance for your help! This forum has been a great planning resource for me and I find more great threads to lurk on every day! Philip
  13. Trilobite ID help

    Hello everyone. Can anyone tell me what type of Trilobite this is? All I know about this fossil is it came from New York in a batch of unprepped fossils.
  14. Last hunt of the year!

    Here in Central New York, we have had the pleasure of fairly decent weather, for the past week. The temperature has been high enough to melt most of the snow. Today I needed to get the boys out of the house. I decided to go to Deep Springs and do a hunt while the boys shot their BB guns. We only stayed for about 1 and a half hours. It was nice to be out there. I dont think that i have been on a hunt anywhere since September? I was being picky about what i was bringing home. Some trilo bits and pieces along with a few other things. First up a Dipleura cephalon.
  15. Hello everyone, looking for some help in IDing this fossil. We think it's a tooth embedded in a jawbone, found in a Western New York riverbank. Thanks!
  16. Oldest Forest in the World

    Gilboa, NY no longer the oldest Forest. It is now in Cairo, NY about 40km away https://m.phys.org/news/2019-12-scientists-uncover-world-oldest-forest.html
  17. Hello All! I am new here, recommended to visit this site, for help Identifying what I found, by someone named The Fossil Guy, who I found on Facebook by following the site Fossilera. My name is Hollie and I am from Long Island, New York. The object in question that I need help identifying was found by myself about ten years ago on the north shore of Long Island in a town called Lloyd Harbor and on the beach. Long Island was formed by a glacier 13,000 ago and is a terminal moraine. The north shore beaches are very rocky with large glacial rocks everywhere and the south shore beaches are all sand. I was told by the fossil guy that my piece is an imprint of a mollusk or worm in sandstone. I am hopeful you all can give me an idea to what it may be. Thank you and happy holidays!!
  18. Hello, I received this trilobite a long ago that I thought was a Parahomalonotus trilobite when I initially got it, recently someone let me know this maybe actually a Dipleura Dekayi, I definitely have my suspicions this would be the case because the surrounding shale matrix is very unusual for Morocco. What do you guys think?
  19. I picked up this nice Eldredgeops rana trilobite mortality plate couple days ago. From the Middle Devonian windom shale western NY. so much going on in this plate it’s hard to capture it all and pictures don’t do it justice.
  20. Hi guys! Haven't made any posts in a while but as I was going through some finds from Penn Dixie recently I have come across a few more fossils I would like to ID. The first few are what I believe to be Pelycopods but I have no further info on them. 1. Part and Counterpart 2. Part and Counterpart, found in the same piece of shale very close to number 1 3. Smaller one among some horn corals 4. A larger one, this one is thicker than the rest and is very different in texture. I have a few more pictures but I don't have space so I will include them below, Thank you guys for any help, Misha.
  21. While Hiking a creek in Upstate New York (Binghamton) I came across this unique find, looks different than anything I have came across before. Looks as if it's composed of several types of minerals along with different types of fossils. Seems to be very dense, with no loose or flaking material. I'm very interested in the main body where it looks as if the material is twisting and curling and gives it a fluid type of look. I am asking the community to please help me identify what this may be composed of and from what era. Thank you. - Dan
  22. Penn dixie never disappoints!

    Penn Dixie never disappoints Hubby and I went last Saturday and I got loads of goodies. I find it rather interesting how all of these trilobites came from the same small area but the way they sit is so different. I would be curious to find out About the conditions that cause the "hugging" trilobites. It's hard to see because I need to be cleaned but each little group has a couple of them , mostly belly to belly. I'm trying to clean them useing an etching pen and a soft brush but pieces keep breaking off and I'm not sure how to do it without them crumbling.
