  1. Can anyone identify this one for me? I'm really pleased with it!
  2. On 3-18-17, Dallas Paleo Society had a field trip to the Black Cat Mountain quarry in Coal County, Oklahoma. Here are a few of my finds from the trip. The details on the site are as follows: Harangan and Bois D'arc formations. Age: Lower Devonian, approximately 419.2 to 393.3 million years ago. Brachiopods, and what I think may be some form of coral. Other side of the brachiopods, same side of the coral piece. Other side is just bare rock. Crinoid columnal section Brachiopod bits & crinoid columnal section Random broken bits on a hash slab, brachiopod shells at top. Brachiopod, Leptaena sp. Thanks for the ID help, @Kane! (Continued in next reply... )
  3. Hi, i bought this russian trilobite for preparation, done just some ammonite before this. i have a record power engraver and a lot of patience. any good advice on this? here some pic of the specimen that is splitted in 2 parts.

  5. Just picked this and a similar one up this morning. This is a Devonian , Brallier/Harrell formation, raod cut a few blocks from my house. Is this a preserved track and (I know its indistinct) and if so from what kind of critter? Any help is appreciated.
  6. While doing a little fossil presentation to a local "Intro to Geology" class I did it..... Broke both eye stalks off this Asaphus kowalewskii. Any helpful tips from you folks regarding ways to align and hold the pieces while adhesive sets? And......lesson learned about transporting fragile specimens. :-(
  7. Hi all I hope I do not wear out my welcome by keep posting so many questions . Found this years ago in a time before I got hooked on fossil collecting .I think it was in the Brecon Beacons . Is it is part of a trilobite.... or that is really what I was hoping. Thanks to everyone who posted on my last question really all enjoyed all your reposones . Bobby
  8. I’ve been looking through last summer’s Silurian finds and noticed this Trilobite impression on this as yet unidentified coral. Would anyone know if this particular Stromatoporoid could have been soft bodied when alive due to the impression made from the Trilobite? Also any help as to what species of trilobite it could be or any suggestions as to the name of the Stromatoporoid. The Stromatoporoid is from the Wenlock series in Shropshire, UK.
  9. On a recent trip to Vermont I found a piece of mudstone that had some interesting stuff in it....Although very small, the detail of these trilobites is fascinating. I just need some help with ID..... I found the image of a similar looking Ordovician trilobite (Tretaspis Sortita) in a British Palaeozoic text, but not sure if I should cross reference.... Comments by return......please. Thanks
  10. From the album My Collection

    Another shelf in my display case. This shelf features life from the early seas (Though not all of these creatures would have been swimming around at the same time period). Here you'll find my trilobites, eurypterids, crinoids and cephalopods.
  11. Hello, I am actualy working on a 3 D reconstruction of the Trilobite Triarthrus The body and my references as a blueprint :
  12. Hi, i'm doing some practice of fossils prep, like i wrote in the title im looking for some unprepared fossils , better if from uk or europe. if someone got some let me know. thanks!
  13. Hey guys this is my koneprussia that has spines on spines!
  14. I could use some help identifying this trilobite. Thanks in advance!
  15. I'm heading across the ditch for a holiday in April and was hoping to spend a couple of days checking out some fossil sites. Anyone got any suggestions? Would love to find some ammonites and trilobites, also any bone fragments.
  16. Bought a collection and this is one of the handful of items without a label. It is a partial trilobite from NY. Cephlon and thorax. No other details. Had a really hard time getting the camera to focus properly on it. Thank you.
  17. Could use some help identifying this trilobite.
  18. I have been staring at this thing for a while and looking at all of my Paleozoic vertebrate books, but I am officially stumped. It has the color and texture of the typical holocephalan/chondricthyan teeth that I find here, but the morphology is just not matching anything I have seen before. It is possible that it could be a part of a trilobite or some other invert, but I am not very well versed on my invertebrates. Further, the invertebrates are very rarely this color here. Bangor Limestone Mississippian (Late Carboniferous) East TN Size of about 0.75cm @JimB88 @Archie
  19. I bought this Trilobite from Morocco about 11 years ago. I know there are many fakes out there, so I am asking for your opinions. There is a repaired crack through the center of the matrix which made me believe that it was real. You can see the crack in the photo, it goes from the upper left, through the trilobite, and over to center right. If it is real, is the black color natural to this type of trilobite from Morocco or has it been painted?
  20. Found on Lake Superior near Ashland, WI. Trilobite fragment?
  21. Hi Everyone, Somewhat new to fossil collecting. I picked this up for 20$ at a flea market, sold to me by a very old man who didn't know anything about it. Is it real? Any help appreciated.
  22. Hi, I came across this site last week and though it might be a good place to help me identify my latest find. While excavating for an addition on my house, I found these two fossils at about the same time in the same location. The one on the right is a trilobite, however the one on the left is the fossil I’m having trouble identifying. My property is located in southwest Michigan, in an area known for glacial deposits, so it makes it a bit challenging to determine what period the fossil is from since it may have traveled many miles before it was deposited. I have found many fossils on the property (almost every time I dig), but this one has me somewhat stumped. I’m pretty sure the substrate is marshall sandstone. In one of the photos looking at the center axis, it appears to have been agateized. Thanks for your help.
  23. Up to date information about access to the Kinzer formation near Lancaster Pa, please. Expect to be in the area this weekend. Thanks, Gordon
  24. Here is one that has me perplexed. I am always on the lookout for strange and new trilobites, especially from North Africa. I picked this one up in Tucson. At first I thought it may be just a fake, but it was from a trusted friend. After inspecting it under magnification, it is the real deal. It is nearly 4 inches long. It is Devonian in age from Morocco, and I can not find mention of anything in the literature and wondered if anyone out there might have an idea.
  25. Hi, I'm wondering if anybody can provide any insight about this fossil I'm attempting to prep. It's from an abandoned quarry in northern Illinois where I've found lots of Silurian Calymenes, but I'm not sure what this is. I'm paranoid to continue prepping without knowing more.. any ideas?
