  1. Just curious on this one? It's more than I thought about spending on a trilo but it looks very cool.
  2. Hello, I've read some topics on this forum about how to recognise fake trilobites. These specimens I received as a gift so I don't know how much was paid for them but I think some parts are 'fake' or composits. I don't even know the names of these cuties. From the second piece I found that the eyes were made of resin (I heated up a needle and scratched a bit).
  3. Unexpected bug

    So I've been collecting the rocks with obvious fossils on my property to make something, like a fossil garden or rock wall along the walkway. I plucked this out of the ground yesterday, rinsed it off and was about to toss it into the pile when I saw that trilobite. All the others I've found are just little white ones so I was very excited to see the condition of this one. If it wasn't for the obvious injury to the axial lobe I think I could've revived him.
  4. Trilobites from China

    Anyone know what species this is? It's a mud trilobite from Hunan province and more specifically in Xiangxi. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I wonder if that slab of rock is part of the Cephalon. Don't know if showing the ventral side is helpful.Posterior view.
  5. Olenellus or Mesonacis?

    From the Eager Fm near Fort Steele, BC, Lower Cambrian. Which one is this? @piranha Sorry for the poor photo, I'll try again if necessary. It is no more than 2cm wide.
  6. Hi, Another trilobite question. Bought this recently and although every sign I've read about these creatures points out it is genuine I just thought to check it with you experts as well.
  7. still learning

    Sorry I haven't been on the forum in a while since I've been working like crazy. After a 71 hour week last week I took a day off. My new job is a driving job around my local area so I make notes of places to revisit to rockhound ( I also do some while on layover time but its hard not to get dirty!). I went back to one today, It is a Bralier Shale (Devonian) exposure. Here's where I need some help. Are the tube things #3 corals or bryozoans? Any id's on the other things would be appreciated. Scale on all is centimeter.
  8. Trilobite ID

    I found it near Byron, IL. Can see gabella.... I need confirmation. My guess is gabricersurus....?!?
  9. Fossil Sites

    Look for places to hunt on hwy 2 from Rockford to Dixo as I'm in area for a day and want to kill time looking for fossils. Any helps would be appreciated. Thanks! Mike. P.s. I'm fine with you want to tag up with me. It'll be nice to have a partner to show me around.
  10. Cambrian Trilobite Unknown

    A few weeks ago, we took a little drive through the rolling hills of SW Wisconsin. I had to occasionally pull over at some road cuts and stretch my legs. While stretching, why not look for fossils! Here is a pygidium that I can't identify from that trip. It is 5 to 10 times larger than other pygidiums that I normally find in the Eau Claire Formation of the Cambrian Period. Any thoughts?
  11. Trilobite Fragment?

    From the Caesar Creek Spillway in Ohio. Much detail was lost in my feeble attempt at prepping. What’s exposed here is probably just under an inch long; it’s pretty small.
  12. As we all know, the trilobites were on their last proverbial legs coming out of the end-Devonian extinctions, their numbers having dwindled to a lone order, Proetida. I haven't seen a lot of talk about these last few survivors of the trilobite lineage, so I wonder how many of us have one of these survivors! I personally don't, but I'm interested to see the forum's contributions!
  13. Is this fossil real or fake ? Please help me
  14. I would have thought this was a faked fossil if I saw it for sale. Line of trilobites indicates social behavior. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/17/science/trilobites-fossils-marching.html
  15. Triarthus eatoni

    Hi. Which reconstruction is correct?
  16. the hunt goes on

    I like DSR. It's peaceful and quite. You get a nice little view. Over all a good spot. I have however been unsuccessful with finding an intact Dipleura! The detail that can been seen on them is fantastic. What amazing little monsters. A quick way to-be driven nuts. I know fossil hunting is a mix of: skill, knowledge, luck and time BUT gosh darn! I will keep trying. This is what I have to show for my effort so far.
  17. Looking for a well know site, believe it's a road cut, in Maysville KY. The site cuts through several formations of the Cincinnatian. From bottom to top, it exposes the Kope, Fairview and Bellevue Formations. Any idea where this is exactly (I.e road intersection, etc?)
  18. Fall Break Fossil Trips

    The next few days are fall break for me, so I'm home from school. I decided to take the day today to explore two sites in Northern Illinois. The first is an outcrop of the Upper Ordovician Maquoketa Group in Kendall County, IL. I learned about this site from a recent trip report posted here, and found it after a little detective work. I was hoping to find Tentaculites oswegoensis, a small conical fossil of unknown affinities which is only found in this area. It only took me a few minutes before I found a few. I only stayed for 20 minutes or so, as Tentaculites is really the only well preserved fossil in these exposures. There were some brachiopod and bryozoan fragments, but nothing noteworthy.
  19. Thaleops? Cephalon?

    Found this one in Bowmanville (Mid Ordovician, Cobourg? Formation) last weekend. My best guess is Thaleops laurentiana cephalon but id like to have a better idea what it is before I attempt any more prep. Have not tried yet but probing with air abrasion looks like it will be difficult since the matrix is full of calcite or some other crystals. @Malcolmt @Kane @Northern Sharks
  20. So I recently purchased a moroccan drotops trilobite, mostly because of its size. It is 5 1/2 inches. It was a impulse purchase and I was not concidering if it might be fake. The reason I think it might not be genuine is the random scratches all around the trilobite on the matrix. I remembered reading that scratches like that are sometimes added to hide signs of it being faked. My original thought when I bought it, was that the scratches could be there from it being quickly prepped. Let me know what you all think! I've attached pictures of it from all angles. Thank you!
  21. Hello friends, nice to meet you. I am from Vietnam, my friends here dont know much about fossil. So can you help me? Can you tell me this is real or fake? It smells very pungent, i dont know why? I see some air balloon... Thank you
  22. Should I trade

    What’s a fair trade for these
  23. Trilobite ID

    I was given this Trilobite as a gift from a friend of mine He went past the same shop where I got my first fossils from (almost a year ago! ), saw a few bits in the window, went in and got me this Was told it is from Morocco, but no further info. I have had a look through my book, and think it's a Flexicalymene Can anyone confirm?
  24. Ordovician Hunt

    Last weekend I made the four hour trip to a spot I prospected back in July, exposing the upper Cobourg Fm near Nottawasaga Bay. The exposure was quite long with a maximum strata height of about 3 metres. Unfortunately, for all the travel and expense, no fabulous finds. The exposure is extremely weathered, and splitting mostly revealed tiny bits or blank muddy/chunky bedding. Still, I collected a flat of items that our local collectors would consider junk, but will make their way into the collections of other more farflung forum members at collecting meet-ups who do not get to collect up here. First up, Isotelus fragments which dominated the rock as very small bits, but occasionally larger partials appeared. The second image is of the wide pygidium with a free-standing section showing the doublure.
  25. Ammonium chloride

    I am having trouble coating this Isotelus plaster cast. This is my first time attempting the ammonium chloride coating method. First I painted the cast with a thin layer of black acrylic (in retrospect, I probably should have used watercolor?). Then made a number of tries to coat the cast with ammonium chloride and was unsuccessful. I tried placing the cast above the smoke, below and directly in front of the flask, nothing worked. I'm wondering if humidity could be an issue? Has anybody tried applying ammonium chloride as a fine liquid spray or magnesium ribbon? Any tips appreciated.
