  1. Coral or bone?

    Found in Cincinnati, Ohio during a parking lot excavation. I know very little about fossils. This is some sort of organic material. Porous, agatized with a bone fragment that looks like a tooth (last photo) in one of the holes. Please advise, Thank you.
  2. Coral

    I've not been able to find a comparable coral to this guy. I'm pretty sure it's coral, anyway. Lol Any of you know what it is? Devonian, Sylvania, Ohio. Thanks!
  3. Pecten?

    Might I be on the right track with pecten for this guy? Or would it be another brachiopod? Devonian from Sylvania, Ohio. Any insights? Thanks!
  4. In search of the elusive isotelus

    For the month of March I will be in Ohio working and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction to find some Ohio trilobites. Even partial large isotelus and flexis are fine. Maybe an Ohio crinoid as well. I hope someone can help and maybe even meet up and we can collect together!

  6. Hypostome Identified

    Hello! I just came across almost a complete hypostome and a larger wing of the mouth line on a smaller hash plate. Didn't know it until I broke down the matrix. The more I chip away at the plate the more minor trilobite pieces I am finding...which is not unusual. Is there any suggestions on how to categorize and store these??? Sorry for the snarge picture.... Still need lighting in my new manpad.
  7. Silica Shale

    Date: Jan. 5, 2019 Location: Paulding, OH Formation: Silica Shale Time Period: Middle Devonian (Givetian) Species collected: *Bethanyphyllum or Heliophyllum *Cystiphylloides americanum *Aulopora microbuccinata *Stropheodonta demissa *Stropheodonta sp. *Megastrophia concava *Pseudoatrypa devoniana *Athyris sp. *Orthospirifer cooper *Mucrospirifer sp. *Limoptera macroptera *Eldredgeops rana @Nimravis
  8. Ohio Trilobites

    I was given these two trilobites from my uncle in Michigan, and he found them locally in Ohio about 11 years ago. I was thinking they are flexicalymene but I am not certain since I am new to identification. Thanks in advance! The smaller one is almost exactly 0.5" long (back of matrix shown), the wider one almost 1.5".

  10. Strange fossils in Ohio Rock

    Hey, I was fossils hunting in Ohio and found some pretty neat stuff, but one Rock in particular had some strange fossils in it, it almost looks like a little trilobite plus some other stuff.
  11. Unknown Vertebra section Ohio

    Hello, I would Like to share a photo of what I think Is a vertebra section . I would like to Know what this could be from. It was found In Ohio in the early 60"s. Thanks for looking. I find it quite unique piece .
  12. Mystery Star

    I am a mineral and fossil collector and an amateur astronomer and my email is rocksnstars, so rocks collected that include a star shape are special. Most of the ones I have are the crinoid stems with star-shaped centers. This is the first time I've seen anything like this. I believe I have met the requirements of providing a good photo with a scale, and I know the period is Late Ordivician. I tagged Ohio because I think that is where it is from, but it is possibly Indiana, however BOTH sites are the SAME period and well known. I collected the two places the same day, and unfortunately during the drive home to Maine and the unloading, some of the specimens got mixed up and this was one of them. The Ohio location is the spillway at Caesar Creek State Park, Waynesville, Ohio, US. The Indiana one is Whitewater River Gorge, Richmond, Indiana, US. (Each mark is 1 mm, so the "1" on the scale is 10 mm, perhaps standard.)

  14. Found in the woods in Fairborn Ohio.
  15. Fun in Southern Ohio!

    Howdy All! Been a couple of months since I have posted anything. Work has kept me more than busy with travel. BUT, I wanted to share a quick day trip to my dig site yesterday in northern Cincinnati. I explored far left into the hillside I am excavating to see on the surface what Gastropods, Brachiopods and Bryzoa I could see and I was happily surprised that I found the mother-load! This area of my site was covered by a lot of growth and the runoff of water was less than in other areas I have been digging. I have attached a couple of pics and some real quick finds I cleaned up last night... sorry about the pic quality, I do not own a fancy camera. I love when I am lined up with conference calls and I can enjoy my hobby why listening to statistical analysis (actually mostly ignoring). I will try to save more pics in the comment sections. One specimen has me confused. I found a number of trilobite pieces throughout my day and collected around 25 hash plates with several in them. I have yet to clean them up. But pictured below (if it lets me) is what appears to be the bottom portion of a trilobite but I'm unsure.
  16. Is this Ohio creek find a fossil?

    I found this in a creek, and would like to know if it is even a fossil. The creek is in southern Ohio, in the mountains on the glacial boundary. The river Teays ran through this location. I usually just have a look if passing creeks and don't know a lot about fossils yet, though I've found crinoids and brachipods in the same spot, and other fossils. There are a lot of interesting geofacts. I couldn't find any pictures online that look like this for anything mississipian. This one is 145 grams. (I guess the ruler is all inches, I thought one side was centi as I didn't pay close attention until I added them, sorry.)

Peel Department of Earth Sciences (Palaeobiology), Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden GFF ,2018, Vol. 140, No. 3, 249–253 A new look at Pleurotomaria perlata Hall, 1852 (Gastropoda) from the Silurian of Laurentia peelgastropmollusilurpaleozoic at Pleurotomaria perlata Hall 1852 Gastropodan of Laurentia.pdf about 1,1 MB HIGHLY RECOMMENDED brief discusions on /comparisons with : Liospira,Pycnotrochus
  18. A very interesting article on the discovery of Dunkleosteus and other placoderms and marine sharks of the Devonian recovered from the Cleveland Metro parks and Chagrin Valley of Ohio: https://clevelandhistorical.org/items/show/728
  19. I found these today in a box of fossils from my collection that I had in the 1970's. Other fossils in the box were mainly trilobites, crinoids and brachiopods. At one time, I had several thousand fossils, primarily from Ohio, Alaska and Utah. I personally collected 100% of the collection, so these fossils most likely came from oneof these states. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  20. Nice haul of brachs from Georgetown todày. The Bellevue and Corryville are exposed are this this road cut. Rafinesquina sp., Hebertella occidentalis ,Vinlandostrophia ponderosa, Vinlandostrophia laticosta and V. cypha. Ordovician about 445m years old. They are all available for trade.
  21. This was the first plate I actually discovered from my dig site two years ago. Recently, I brought it back out of storage for review. The dry view or the wet view is pretty neat. Let me know your thoughts.
  22. Matrix Identifcation

    Howdy! I'm having a heck of a time identifying the matrix surrounding the fossils I'm finding in my dig site. I'm using vinegar but it is weak. I'm considering using CLR on some practice stone plates but I could use some guidance.
  23. Hi everyone, It has been a while since I've posted here as Family matters require changes in Priorities. I spend my fossil time at the Ohio Fossil Collector site on FB. A Friend has posted a recent find of hers from North Canton Ohio. This would be a Pennsylvanian age if it is not a Glacial Erratic from the North. The Central Fern/Fan like piece is the troublemaker. I have checked and not found anything close to this Fossil. I have checked Fossils of Ohio; nothing. I have google searched Fossil Corals of Ohio, Fan type corals but I do not think they were around yet. Searched the Bryozoa's, nothing. The stem area of this resembles an Aulopora, but none that I know of resemble the Fern like growth of this Fossil. It is covering a Coral under it. I don't see any patterns that would suggest a Crinoid. The growth pattern is interesting. It has a central core stem. Then branches out forming the fern-like pattern. The one photo enlarges well and shows all of it. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  24. Silica Formation Clam

    I've been finding some interesting clam fragments at Paulding, Ohio (Silica Fm., Middle Devonian) with original shell and a conspicuous sharp angle along the dorsal side of the shells. They are coming from the limestone layers of the formation (not the shale). Finally, I got one complete enough that I might be able to get an ID. It's about 3/4 complete, but unfortunately it's missing the anterior end, including the umbo. I've tried to illustrate the shape via some photos with reconstructions (red line) of what's missing. It's hard to illustrate the 3D qualities with photos. I'm thinking this is Mytilarca cordata. Looking for confirmation from those familiar with clams of Silica Formation or other Devonian formations of same age. The shell (what remains of it) is about 6cm in length. @crinus
  25. Caesar Creek Spillway

    So I plan on going to the Caesar Creek Spillway (hope I spelled it right) in the next coming weeks, any tips on where to find trilobites there? should I go a little farther than people usually go and hope for luck or anything? Thanks -Forest
