  9. Yukon Phyllocarids

    Thanks for the comments ... Been trying to respond to some but having some difficulty using this website... The Phyllocarids I've found up there are, apparently, the world's largest. The most famous and complete specimens, from Germany's Hunsruck shale, are only an inch or two in length. Definitely no fish remains at this site. The second most common fossil at that place is Plumaria Plumalina, which used to be called feather coral, but is now generally considered to a hydroid type of creature. These are also unusually large with ind. fronds over a foot in length. Here's a pic of one. There are also more complex and varied forms of what appears to be basically the same thing.
  10. Yukon Phyllocarids

    Anyone intimately familiar with Phyllocarid morphology? This slab is from a lower Devonian formation in the northern Yukon Territory. These things were giants ... The well preserved Telson (tail-spike) piece is 10" long, the feeler/antennae assembly alone is 18" long ... In life the critter was likely a good meter in length. What I'm not certain about is the 8" long arm-like appendage at top, as well as a small armor like plate nearby. Over the years have found many complete trident shaped telsons and antennae but not much in the way of other body parts.

  16. Phyllocarid From The Pittsford Shale

    A very rare Phyllocarid from the Pittsford shale. You can see other Silurian arthropods (Ostracods) scattered on both halves of the Phyllocarid. How good are you with Phyllocarids? I collect Devonian Phyllocarids from New York but this is my first Silurian Phyllocarid. All the research I have done tells me that this is likely Ceratiocaris but I want to be sure. Please chime in. mikey
  17. First Phyllocarid

    I spent the day Friday hunting for Eurypterids. I was pleasantly surprised when I found what I believe to be the tail and last segment of a phyllocarid. Definately looks like the picture in my book "Fossil Ecosystems of North America" This was found in Bertie Dolestone of the Williamsville formation. This is late Silurian in age. Based on the commonest phylocarid in this formation being ceratiocaris acuminata, I suspect that is what I have here. The tail spike appears to be adjsacent to the last segment which is outlined with a black fine sharpie. The tail section itself is 67 millimeters in length. Basically unprepped just a quick dust to get some of the crud off. Here is a close up of the tail Here is a diagram I found
