  1. A Strange Rhode Island Fern

    I was going through some material from Cory’s Lane, a Carboniferous fossil site in Rhode Island, when I noticed this fern. It didn’t really look like anything else I had and so I came here for some help. I’m very new to identifying fern fossils, so any help is greatly appreciated.
  2. First Fossil Hunting Trip(s)

    A break in the bitter winter cold gave me a bit of spring fever this week. Thursday I had to venture to Newport for an errand and the weather was a balmy 30-ish and sunny, I decided to go check out this location. Tides were favorable for hitting the beach this week and I took advantage. With the major storm that came through recently, I figured there might be some new rock eroded down to search through. Armed with only my brick hammer, goggles and gloves, I scoured through pieces for about an hour. The rocks here were pretty well saturated, and those that did not outright disintegrate trying to split them, only revealed mud and ice between the layers. I tried placing them in sunlight to dry a bit, but finding anything in the field was futile. I grabbed some small slabs that for whatever reason seemed promising and brought them home to split. While carefully splitting at the kitchen table, my 4 year-old took up brush-cleaning duties. It was a fun little project for lil man and I. The haul yielded some potential finds, and a thirst for a return adventure with the kids.
  3. Large Pecopteris sp. Section

    From the album Cory's Lane Fossil Locality

    Large imprint of Pecopteris sp. Found in 2017 at the Cory's Lane fossil locality, Rhode Island.
  4. Unidentified Fern

    Hi All, I'm having a hard time nailing down an exact ID for this large fern imprint I found earlier this month. This imprint is from the Pennsylvanian time period and was found in the Rhode Island Formation. below I've included a list of the possible suspects/known flora from the Rhode Island Formation. It doesn't help that fossils from the Rhode Island Formation are often distorted. This distortion can be seen in the close up image of the pinnules below. The red arrows are pointing to pinnules I believe are the way they should look versus distorted. Anyone have any ideas as to an ID?? Thanks as always!
  5. The Ferns are Growing!

    Well... I seem to be turning into a Rhode Island native at this point. This past weekend I was able to head down to Cory's Lane for an afternoon of digging. Here's my latest find from the Carboniferous period. This fern still needs to be cleaned up a bit and I'm still trying to nail down an exact ID. At just over 3 feet long this is now my biggest and most complete find to date (1-upped myself again). More pics to come once I finish cleaning this guy up. P.S. This was definitely not fun to carry back to the car . I couldn't save the entire second half of this fern as it was partially destroyed when I ripped up the 8 foot slab of rock this fossil was on. I did manage to save the middle section at least!
  6. Large Pecopteris arborescens

    From the album Cory's Lane Fossil Locality

    Large Negative imprint of Pecopteris arborescens. Found in 2017 at Cory's Lane fossil locality, Rhode Island.
  7. In between all of the 4th of July weekend barbecues I was able to make it down to Cory's Lane, Rhode Island for a few hours of shale splitting. The day started out slow with only a few small plant imprints found, but I eventually managed to rip up a 5 foot slab of rock with a larger fern section on one end of it. After cutting the slab down to a little over a foot and a half in length this Pecopteris arborescens manages to go down as the largest fern I've found at this locality! It was a nice start to the long weekend, but the real win was the awesome weather .

  11. Mariopteris?

    Can anyone say what the carboniferous plant in the lower left corner is? The vein preservation is poor, but is this maybe Mariopteris? Found at Cory's Lane, Rhode Island
  12. Cory's Lane Outting

    It's a bit short notice, but I'm planning to do some shale splitting this Sunday 6/11/2017 at Corys Lane. The weather this weekend is looking good and low tide is at an opportune time on Sunday (about 3pm). If anyone is bored you should come say hi .

  22. For anyone who finds themselves up to the challenge of fossil hunting in Massachusetts/New England I have a couple of very informative books to recommend. These books are also relevant for anyone hunting in Connecticut and Rhode Island. Fossils can be hard to find here in Northeastern USA so it pays off to do your homework! I've met both of the authors of these books and they're definitely experts on the local geology/paleontology. Happy Trails! Title: Carboniferous Plant Fossils of North Attleboro, Massachusetts Author: Steve Emma Description: An in depth guide to the Pennsylvanian aged plant fossils that can be found in the Narragansett Bay area. This area includes southern Massachusetts and much of Rhode Island. Title: Windows into the Jurassic World Author: Nicholas G. McDonald Description: An in depth look at the Jurassic aged geology and fossils found in the Connecticut River Valley area which extends from Western Massachusetts down through Connecticut.

  25. Rhode Island Hunting

    I live in Rhode Island where there aren't that many fossil sites. does anyone know of any fossil beds in or close to Rhode Island?
