  1. Paulding OH proetid pygidium

    I was working out a trade with a fellow member and they very graciously pointed out that this is not an Eldredgeops pygidium as I thought, but instead a proetid pygidium. From the Silica Shale in Paulding, OH. The only proetid from Paulding my searches turned up is Pseudodechenella. Any thoughts?
  2. Paulding OH unknown

    I found this thing when I was sorting through the haul from a recent trip to Paulding (Silica Shale, Devonian). I have no idea what it is. Only thing I thought of is some kind of fish bit, really just because it doesn't look like anything else from Paulding that I'm familiar with. Any ideas?
  3. To celebrate the end of the semester, I decided to finally take the 2 hour trip down to the Paulding Fossil Gardens. The weather sucked as most of you in the Midwest probably noticed, but I managed to get a few hours in between storms. This made everything a bit flooded, but I wasn't too concerned.
  4. Trilobite for the prep table

    Hi all, I found this beauty not too long ago in Pauling Ohio. I am pretty sure it is some type of Eldridge trilobite. Any tips on how to prep it?
  5. Paulding species list

    I recently was in Ohio for a short trip for business. Along the way I stopped at the Paulding fossil site. This had been on my fossil bucket list for a while. I was only there for about two hours. I was finding nice big brachs and horn corals, as well as some nice pieces of trilobites when I was getting ready to leave and I found a large, perfect complete enrolled Phacops. I might post some before and after pictures when I finish cleaning it up. Anyway my reason for this post is that I'm asking if anyone has a link to a website or knows of some other resource that shows the different taxa that can be found in this formation so that I don't have to take a bunch of pictures, post them, wait for people to respond... Funny thing is I think I left a small container of fossils I found behind at the site. But I still have about 5lbs of fossils that made it home, so I'm just writing it off as an offering to the fossil gods.
  6. Tiny Unknown Devonian

    @Peat Burns, This one is for you. I am staking my reputation (which doesn't mean a lot) on you to be able to ID this Paulding, Ohio unknown. Your info on species of Paulding mounds has been very helpful to me so far. Collected in early January.
  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. 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
  9. I spent the Holiday weekend in Port Clinton, Ohio visiting my relatives. On my drive to there, I made a slight detour so that I could visit the fossil site north of Paulding, Ohio. I must commend La Farge Quarry for their creation and upkeep of the park!!!!! They must, unlike most quarries, realize the treasures that lurk within their rock. The park consists of about 10 rows, 100 feet long of fossiliferous rock they provide for the public's enjoyment. Some of the piles are weathered and some are fresh. Certain species are better found in the weathered rock, others in the fresh. Look at both!! Here is a sampling of what can be found in a few hours of collecting: Brachiopods abound from small to large.
  10. Paulding, Ohio (April 2018)

    Another great hunt in Paulding, OH. Weather was windy, rainy, and cold, but neither the fossils nor the avid fossil hunter seemed to mind. Here are some of the finds. I have also begun a working species list for the site in the Ohio fossil sites subforum linked here: Paulding Species List

  12. Are these crinoid arms?

    Hi. I've spent the winter reviewing my finds from 2017. Here are two images. Initially I thought the radiating arms were those of a brachiopod, but I'm now having my doubts. Could they be crinoid arms? (The specimen in the top image is on the upper left corner.) I failed to include a measurement scale, but the top specimen would be covered by a penny, and the bottom by a nickel. They're tiny. Thoughts? (Paulding, Ohio; Middle Devonian; Silica Shale)
  13. Trilobit, Silica Shale

    This might be a job for @piranha This trilobit looks a little different to me than the typical Eldredgeops. Maybe Dechenella lucasensis? I didn't realize how poor the photo quality was until I cropped it. I can take more photos under the scope if necessary. Silica Shale, middle Devonian (Givetian), Paulding, Ohio. Scale in cm/mm. This one seemed different as well.
  14. Nautiloid camera?

    Is this what I think it is? A camera steinkern of an orthoconic nautiloid? This is from the middle-Devonian Silica Shale of Paulding, Ohio (although because it is quarry spoil, there is a possibility it could be the underlying Dundee Limestone). I don't think I've ever found an orthocone in the Silica Shale, let alone one this large. I hope this is not something that has been intentionally or unintentionally salted in from another site... That really burns me up.
  15. My children have been begging us to spend a couple of holidays with them, so this year we drove from Fl to Michigan for Thanksgiving, and then over to Maine for Christmas. It was way colder than we are used to...so, LOL, last trip to Maine in winter. I had planned to stop in Mich near Alpena to fossil hunt but it was too cold. I did stop at familiar places on the way up/ The Conasuaga river bluff of mudstone, which I am still cracking, but have including one nice image from it. And then I stopped along the road cut north of St Leon, Indiania, and found my first rolled trilobite, a little flex...but also a rolled isotolus, however with a crushed face. I posted those previously, I was so excited. After Michigan, on the way to Maine, I stopped at the La Farge Quarry piles near Paulding. I only stayed briefly there, as it was late in the day, however the next morning my good wife suggested I go back for a couple of hours while she slowly got ready to travel. I jumped at the chance, even though it was only 34 degrees and raining...I thought, "Hey, I'll get there and the fossil gods will stop the rain for me" . True. I got there, chipped out a couple of things...all the shale and rock is quite hard, so I generally only had big chunks of stone. I was taking my changes. I kept looking for trilobites as I know they are common, but not easily found here. At any rate, no trilobites. Once I got back to Florida and started looking over my loot with my 10 x loop, I discovered a couple of trilobite eyes..I have been slowly cleaning them with a pin, but so far it seems like they are either singular, broken off eye pieces, or at best a cephalon, with no complete body. The larger one I posted is so interesting, because the lenses on the top of the eye are missing...there are just round little holes filled, or not with clay. However on the bottom of the eye, the lenses are in place... they even show up glassy looking under my loop. I could look at them for hours. I also found some interesting brachipods in Paulding, I am including images of those, in case anyone can help me i.d. them. They are shaped somewhat like eggs...with a fold about a third of the way in from each edge, and quite deep. I thought the first one I found must have been more circular and had probably been forced into its current shape by nature, however when I found a second one like the first, I began to question that theory. Any help would be great.I may end up posting them in the ID help area as well. Overall it was a great trip, I have much to clean, and am so thoroughly glad I can now sit outside in nice warm temperatures to do it....hey, even 65 degrees is better than the 22 below we endured in Maine.

  19. Paulding (OH) Fossil Gardens

    Thanks to @Fossil-Hound, who recently submitted a trip report to Paulding, Ohio, I was reminded that I had not been there yet and decided to head down there today. As mentioned by Fossil-Hound, this is "spoil" from the LaFarge Quarry which operates just down the road from the site. The quarry has generously set aside some land where they have placed numerous long piles of fossil-rich shale from the Silica Formation (middle Devonian: Givetian). The fossil park is fenced-in, and there is a nice, spatious, gravel parking lot as well as a porta-pot. There is a liability waiver form, but when I was there, there were no more blank ones -- just a whole bunch that had already been filled out and stuffed in the receptacle on the sign. I read everything and looked everywhere regarding rules for using "tools". I saw no rules against using a rock hammer or other tools. Here are a few pictures of the site and parking area (the "smoke" in the background is from the quarry. THey actually blasted once when I was there!):
