  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Did I bring home poo?

    So I went and had a great day out at Penn Dixie ( Devonian) this weekend. I brought home a lot of fossils I'll be happy to clean up and put on the shelf. Thankfully, My level of incompetence is quite apparent to anyone that sees me struggle, young man took pity on me and helped me ( I don't know if I'm allowed to tag him in the post). After a long day of fossil collecting, Walking back carrying back a bag that was far too heavy for me, Sweaty ,tired and dehydrated. I wander from the path to look at something that has caught my eye. It shines, it calls to me. What is it?! I pick it up and put it in my pocket. In my car it goes and to a safe little spot where all my top fossil of the day go. And there it sits in its place of honor for the 3 hour drive home. When I get home the nice little Box comes inside where open it to find all my beautiful little trilobites sitting and this, this fossil, rock , poo? Do I pick up and drive home 151 miles with a bit of sun dried poo?
  4. I've been tardy on making a report on a three-day dig at Penn Dixie with @Malcolmt. We had a real hoot. It all began when Malcolm picked me up from the train station and we sailed through the border as we were lucky to have a Homeland Sec official who recognized Malcolm from the May Dig with the Experts. A border guard who collects fossils? Awesome! We definitely put in our efforts. We joined up with @JamesAndTheFossilPeach and @DevonianDigger to start slabbing out rocks. I can say that our area was not the best as the matrix was brutally hard and not yet subjected to any weathering, which meant slabs would shatter more than split. That aside, it is amazing they still let us crazy canucks in as we carted out about two buckets each of trilobites. Malcolm found a lovely Bellacartwrightia, and I found a double Greenops. We loaded up on the usual complete Eldredgeops rana, prone, enrolled, and semi-prone.
  5. Penn Dixie Greenops

    Decided to tackle prepping this greenops today that I found at Penn Dixie a few weeks back. Part of the cephalon broke off in the negative, but the glue job worked OK. There is still some digging needed to expose the right cheek and pleural tips but they should (hopefully) be there. A fold along that side buried them deep in the matrix. Not a perfect bug but my best greenops found so far
  6. Penn Dixie, Disappointed

    I recently became a member of the HNHS (Hamburg Natural History Society), and took my first trip out there since the spring. I had some success there, and came away with a couple complete specimens, although they are very rare. This time, the grounds were so picked over and depleted that I considered it a waste of time. The only exposed beds were completely monopolized, and the people were quite rude when I tried to set up nearby, asking me to find somewhere else to dig. On top of this, one of my favorite places to go, has been cordoned off now. (The small tributary that feeds into Rush Creek) This has always been my favorite spot to dig, and all of the complete specimens I have came from that area. When I asked the staff about this, they stated safety concerns, saying that the layers of limestone that overlay the shale might fall. (Isn't this always a risk when hunting in a cliff?) The piles of scree that were dug earlier in the year are nothing but rubble now. I guess what I'm seeking is somewhere where fresh rockfalls are accessible, and I know that with the privatization of the lakeshore, anywhere, there is precious little left to us. Thanks for any help you can offer, Derek
  7. Penn Dixie E. rana injury?

    Not exactly an ID but I can't think of a better place to post this. Here is an E. rana I found this week at Penn Dixie. Prep started on the right lobe which was exposed on the side of a block (fourth pleura is damaged due to being exposed). It was looking like a near perfect bug, nicely inflated and complete aside from the small chip. When I made my way around to the other side I found more damaged pleura. This was a surprise as the entire middle and left lobes were buried under significant matrix. Could this be an injury that killed/happened during the trilobite's lifetime?

  17. Penn Dixie stuff

    Hello everyone! I'm here once again to ask for some identification help as I continue to work on my fossil area display. Today I have a few items from Penn Dixie (Hamburg, NY, mid-Devonian) for you to look at. But before I show the photos, I was wondering about the formation that we find fossils in at Penn Dixie - is it all Moscow Formation? Okay, now on to the photos... Specimen #1: A Platyceras gastropod, but I'm not sure of the species: Specimen #2: A horn coral on the same rock as the Platyceras - is it Stereolasma rectum or Amplexiphylum hamiltoniae? Specimen #3: I've posted this one before, asking if it was a goniatite or a gastropod, but I'm starting to think it's a gastropod with some of the middle missing - perhaps Naticonema lineata or Euomphalus laxus? Specimen #4: A brachiopod and horn coral on the same rock as the goniatite/gastropod specimen - is the brachiopod Athyris spiriferoides? And is the horn coral Stereolasma rectum or Amplexiphylum hamiltoniae? Specimen #5: An unknown piece of something on the same rock as the goniatite/gastropod and the brachiopod - any ideas? Thanks in advance! Monica
  18. Unknown from Penn Dixie

    Hi all, here is another find from Penn Dixie not sure what it is maybe a bivalve or brachiopod. Also the outer layer used to be a very thin calcite, most flaked off but a bit is still left. Thank you.
  19. Unknown from Penn Dixie

    I found this on a plate of trilobites and pelycopods, it is around 8mm in diameter and I have no Idea about what it could be. Any help is appreciated, Thank you.
  20. Penn Dixie Crinoid

    Does anyone know what part of the crinoid this element is? Is there enough there to assign a genus? It is 6-sided, and each side has a concavity. Pictured are top, bottom, and one side view. Scale in mm. Location & geological context in tags.
  21. Penn Dixie this weekend

    This weekend we're taking a long weekend up to the Niagara Falls NY area. We're going to be doing the typical tourist stops plus a visit to Penn Dixie. . Based on the weather forecast I would assume to be there at opening time to avoid the afternoon heat and possibility of thunderstorms. I don't know yet if we're going to be there on Saturday or Sunday. Is there any tips or suggestions for first timers to Penn Dixie? We have a rock hammer, mason's hammer, an engineer hammer and several cold chisels. Also on a totally unrelated note any restaurants in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area that anyone would recommend for the family. Thanks for any information and I will post a field report early next week.
  22. Devonian finds

    Here are a few finds from my first trip to Penn Dixie not sure exactly what these are. The first is a spiriferid brachiopod but I would like to confirm that what is on it is a crinoid holdfast or is it something else?
  23. It's taken me a while to post this, but my boyfriend and I took another trip to Penn Dixie on the Fourth of July! For those who have been to Penn Dixie I'm sure you know it's impossible even for a total newbie to leave empty handed. I didn't get anything super amazing like some of the full trilos th at I've seen other people post, but I did get what I went in hoping to find - gastropods!!! I THOUGHT that I found 2 - the large one and the good spiral one. But when I started washing the mud off them last night I discovered two others on the other side of some chunks that we had kept for their trilo fragments! They aren't perfect, but I'm so happy because all I've wanted to find since I started going to Penn Dixie was a snail It has a little bit to do with my love for David Attenborough shows and learning that we are currently in the Golden Age of the Snail which makes me unreasonably happy. I'll try to get some more pictures tonight of everything we found to help illustrate how many fossils you can leave Penn Dixie with - even when your boyfriend is making you be more selective and says you can't keep everything! I took a picture right after I found the third gastropod (the smaller not spirally one - I know the name is in the Penn Dixie guidebook but I can't think of it right now) Realized I jumped the gun by taking a picture of the three when I found this guy! He's definitely not as great as the other spirally one, but I might try to extract him better at some point! Not even the best trilobite pieces we found, but the only ones I have pictures of at the moment!
  24. I found this small pygidium while prepping some Penn Dixie material. Not sure whether it’s Greenops or Bellacartwrightia. Any thoughts? @Fossil-Hound @DevonianDigger Hope you don’t mind the tags.
  25. I had the pleasure of attending the recent Penn Dixie Dig With The Experts and had the opportunity to catch up with some old collecting friends and make some new ones. As one of the people helping out collectors and cutting a heck of a lot of bugs out of rock for people I had the opportunity to see most of the really awesome bugs found that weekend. Without a doubt this one found by Scylla's son was one of the best and one of the rarest finds to be had a Penn. Gus and his son were kind enough to trust me with their prize find. The bug was damaged a bit and split between two sides of the matrix. I will look at repairing some of this at the end of the prep. Regardless this is a huge bela and has remarkable preservation. This is being prepped with relatively low PSI dolomite / sodium bicarbonate mix with some minimal scribing using a Pferd MST-31 with fine stylus. At the point of this picture I have already trimmed down the counter part to make it ready for reassembly. Reassembly was by super thin cyano acrylate clamped for 24 hours
