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!
Went on the field trip with the NYPS to Madison County today. We went to 2 sites today. The first one was DSR and the second one was a new locality in Brookfield, NY. It was basically untouched and there were greenops everywhere ( but I’ll talk about that in a later post because this one’s all about the phyllocarids). I managed to find 5 or so partial Rhinocaris carapaces at DSR. None of them with telsons or anything fancy like that. At the second spot though, I got lucky! Along with 7 more Rhinocaris partials I found an Echinocaris with both valves and part of the Telson! Definitely one of my best finds ever.
