  1. This weather has got me a bad case of cabin fever, my normal fossil hunting ground along the Whitewater River in Southeast Indiana is flooded. Went out in my back yard today to look thru the two truck loads of leach line gravel I bought for landscaping, the quarry is only about a 1/4 mile away. Found this odd ball, thin layers of crystal like formations on both sides, has hollow cavities and some brachiopod fossils that are a red color. Just curious as to how it formed, wish I could get closer photos of the brachiopods, will try again tomorrow with some daylight....if the sun ever shines again LOL.
  2. Cephalopod ID

    Hey guys, I am fairly certain that this is a straight-shelled nautiloid cephlapod but this one is different from others I find. I find a lot of fragments from cephlapods in Cincinnati with only a few segments. This one seems like the whole shell, though it is 7.5 centimeters in length. Also one side has a bunch of holes which I am curious about. Any more info on this specimen would be much appreciated. Found in a creek so it has probably been weathered a lot. These next pictures are the top and bottom, (i dont know why they are flipped to the left)
  3. Scolecodont?

    While prepping a Platystrophia ponderosa just now, I came across this little guy. I'm thinking Scolecodont. Thoughts? Stratigraphic context in tags. Scale in mm.
  4. Rugose Coral

    All, I went fossil hunting at a new site a little north of downtown Nashville and hit paydirt with these large pieces of rock; they are absolutely packed full of rugose coral
  5. I decided to take the day off of work today because it was supposed to be in the mid 40's and I figured I could whack open some Mazon Creek concretions. I was very nice out, but I figured that my time would be better spent cutting down matrix on a number of pieces that I collected recently from 3 different time periods (Pennsylvanian, Mississippian and Ordovician). I did not get everything cut down, but it was a good start, here is the aftermath. Pennsylvanian- Sometimes things just pop out of the matrix like the two beauties Ordovician- Mississippian-
  6. Five years ago today, we lost a beloved friend of the Fossil Forum, Caleb Scheer. It was a sad day when his father, Al, "Roadcut1", informed the Forum that he died. Caleb was very knowledgeable in the Ordovician trilobites of the Midwest. He took this knowledge to create the website "Midwest Paleo" that illustrates some exquisite trilobites from the Ordovician in the Midwest. On the Forum he would make over a thousand posts, making comments, helping identify fossils and posting pictures of the fossils he collected, especially trilobites. His avatar is a beautiful coiled Cybeloides iowensis he collected from the Maquoketa formation. Last year after MAPS, I visited Al to do some field work collecting Ordovician trilobites. While there, we visited the cemetery where Caleb is. On his head stone, the family had the image of a Ceraurus trilobite put on it. An appropriate way to remember his love of trilobites. I am currently working with two others on the revision of Ceraurus. We will be honoring Caleb by describing and naming a new species of Ceraurus after him that he collected from the Mifflin Member of the Platteville Formation.
  7. I love ichnofossils, for what they tell us that physical remains cannot. Here is a brilliant example: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/12/181213131251.htm

  20. Possible Amplexus?

    Found in Southeast Indiana on the Whitewater River. I find a bunch of Grewingkia but this coral looks different, has a deeper chalice and wider at the top compared to the length. Thanks guys!
  21. I found this along the Whitewater River in Southeast Indiana and trying to id looking at my book. I'm a newbie and trying my hand at prepping using a needle vise, but the more I uncover the more I find. Wondering if you could shed some light on what all is in this "rock". Thanks so much, meanwhile I'll keep pecking away and try to clean this up a little more!
  22. About molting...

    Edited : back then i wrongly ided the specimen. Not a Neseuretus, rather a colpocoryphe. That's always happening to me when processing older stuff... Hi all, Now and then we read topics about trilobites molting. While processing my trilos and entering them to my database, i noticed i never posted this one on TFF (or anywhere by the way). Some might find this one interesting (i do). So, here it is :Colpocoryphe rouaulti 's molting : you can see it got 2 bodies, the main one (old one) on the right and the new one attached to the head part.
  23. I have these two Pseudogygites latimarginatus trilobites from Craigleith, Ontario that I would like to trade for fossil shark teeth. I’m looking for anything interesting, let me know what you have. Thanks for looking!
  24. Sorry guys I'm back with more Brachiopods. Usually the ones I find are embedded in matrix but these are nice ones, found near the Whitewater River. I've been going thru my ID book and wonder if my stab at identification is right or wrong, I learn either way. Once again thanks again for your help! Using the fourth photo with the shells right side up and with a ruler. Top left and middle are they Rafinesquina? Top right is that Holtedahlina? Bottom left Platystrophia? Bottom right Plaesiomys?
  25. I've found a blob me thinks. Came across this on the Whitewater River, Southeast Indiana. What the heck do you think is in this? I see a Leptaena.
