  10. A very small group of us ventured into the wilds of northern PA last weekend, equipped with masks and a permit to poke around a state wildlife preserve with Carboniferous Lewellyn Formation exposures. It was a gorgeous day and the colors of the limestone really shone in the sunlight. As we got there, a pair of permit-less fossil poachers were just leaving. How do I know that they didn't have a permit? Because they absolutely did not follow the rules. Since it is a wildlife preserve, it is important that anyone looking for fossils not leave craterous holes in the ground and replant any plants that were uprooted in the process of digging said holes. They left holes everywhere. Our intrepid permit holder filled in most of the holes so that she could keep getting permits in the future. For this reason, I'm not going to be any more specific about the location. That said, there were so many wonderful plant fossils to find! The site is remarkable for its red, orange and yellow limestone, which makes for some terrific, high-contrast fossils. Many of them had crisp details. What's more, there was quite a variety.
  11. Lower Cambrian Trilobites in South Central PA?

    Hey there everyone. I’m currently up in New York hunting for fossil, and tomorrow I’ll be riding through PA and have been itching to collect at the Kinzers Formation and was wondering if anybody in the forum was familiar with any public access areas to find any Cambrian material? I’ve done a fair amount of reading and it seems like a lot has either been over-collected or is in closed quarries. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
  12. Stigmaria or Young Lycopsid?

    From my collection of St Clair plant material - any ideas? Less than half a centimeter thick, about two inches long.
  13. A Crinoid, but which one?

    It’s a Crinoid column, that’s for sure. Unfortunately I found these in road gravel limestone. It’s not local, I’ve never seen one with the star shape until today. I just happened to see each one while walking today. Top left is 13mm. Bottom right is 16mm. There are 4 stacked, each about 2mm thick. I can get much closer if that helps.
  14. I'm new to all this, and was wondering if you folks can help me. I noticed this lying in a small creek bed in Berks County, PA. Didn't find anything else like it. Is it a fossil of some kind, or just a rock? Thanks!
  15. Found this in some Pennsylvanian aged shale in Ambridge, PA at the well known mahoning exposure. It doesn’t have visible pinnae like the ferns I’ve found in the area, but it could just be a strange preservation. Any ideas - is this just a fern? Thanks!
  16. Late Pennsylvanian Seed Fern

    Hi all, Here’s an interesting plant find. I discovered it in a locality in Western PA known for producing good plant fossils. I’m thinking seed fern, maybe related to Alethopteris somehow but to be honest I’m not sure what the species is. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Stratigraphy: Connelsville Sandstone of the Casselman Formation of the Conemaugh Group. Age-Late Pennsylvanian, ~305 MYA
  17. Hi! Please excuse us if we aren’t following decorum with our photo sizes, staging, etc. Since the quarantine has us unexpectedly homeschooling, we took our 5th grader to collect some fossils and though I’m sure they are pretty basic, I’m having a hard time helping her ID all of them. Any info is appreciated, as we are absolute beginners. ☺️ These were collected at a random roadcut in northern PA, another in West Virginia, and also at Beltsville Lake (where we searched all day for a trilobite until I realized I probably don’t even know what the fragments would look like).
  18. Foray into Foraminifera

    Good morning all!- hope you are all healthy! I found these foraminifera (my first!!!) on April 20, but took my time fishing them out of some limestone, then meticulously cleaning and prepping them. Thanks to Clear Lake for suggesting, in my first post that it looks similar to Ozawainella ciscoensis-really appreciate it! They were all found in winterset limestone in Kansas City. Researching numerous references, I found it is far more complicated identifying them, so I'll send them to someone with more expertise in i.d.s! , and am leaving them as simply Foraminifera. I i.d. them under a dissecting scope, then used 30 gauge needles to loosen them with applications of vinegar, then washed them in alternating vinegar and water, then placed them on blue clay to make them stick in place. The best one has 4 views. Just received my digital microscope and love it!! So simple and easy to use! My previous post stated it measured 458um or so, but I used the wrong objective- all of these are 860-900um in diameter. I went ahead and placed them on the fossil of the month, only because I haven't seen a lot of images on them in the forum (though I'm still looking through ).Thoughts and suggestions appreciated, and thanks for making me feel like a kid again! Hope you enjoy!- The beauty of some things simply cannot be appreciated unless you look closely!!!! Bone
  19. A few Pennsylvanian plants

    Hello everyone, I have recently received these three pieces of Pennsylvanian Flora from Pennsylvania along with some fossils of stigmaria. I have no idea what they may be from and any help is appreciated. The patterns on the first two may be recognizable to someone but I do not have hopes of finding an ID for the last one, I will leave it here just in case. All of the pieces are about 7 cm in length.
  20. I live in jersey near Philadelphia and I was hoping to find eurypterid fossils but the only stop I can find is Lang’s quarry which is over 5 hours away and cost a ton to hunt. I am wonder if anyone has found evidence of eurypterids in Pennsylvania , Maryland, or southern New York. If you have any pictures I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Noel.
  21. Potentially Petrified Wood

    Hello all! I am a new member, and this is my first post. Could I please have some help figuring out if these rocks are petrified wood? Most of them were found in a small Pennsylvanian stream. It looks like they are quartz, crystal quartz, but I am no expert. There should be about two pictures of each rock. Thanks for your help, and I have more pictures of different rocks if needed.
  22. Need Crinoid refrence

    I have some beautiful crinoid stem cross-section impressions from the Devonian Mahantango in PA (runs from NY to VA) and have been searching all morning to find a good reference book that won't cost me $100 just to open the cover and see if it's adequate to the task at hand. Winifred Goldring seems to have done the definitive works, but she didn't include any cross sections! Can anybody point me in the right direction?
  23. Yesterday I traveled to vintage pa in the hopes of finding Cambrian fossils or more specifically Anomalocaris fossils which had been found in a former quarry nearby and in the same formation I was hunting. I went to an outcropping of the kinzers formation that I saw on the Wikipedia Image that I have attached, but after an hour of splitting rocks I didn’t find anything recognizable. I was hoping someone knew if I was doing something wrong or if it was just not a good spot? thanks, Noel
  24. Devonian placoderm?

    Hi all! I pulled this fossil out of Red Hill, a Devonian site in central Pennsylvania. I thought it looks like it could possibly be part of a placoderm but I’d love to get some help with further identification. Thanks in advance!
  25. Bone, tube, or plant?

    I found these at an Oriskany Sandstone exposure in Blair County Pennsylvania that is normally overgrown. There was abundant crinoid & shell material around. There is no internal structure, and the larger specimen seems to show some faint longitudinal striations. ID suggestions appreciated ad. I was thinking Mud tube, filled burrow, cephalopod /shell cast, or plant bits. I couldn't find any similar pictures in my resources.
