  1. So My missus drove me out to Arkona for one last stab at Arkona for 2017. It was cold, but I had to get out and play for one last time. This pic shows the south pit in the morning. A lot was under ice. As I was walking to an already existing bench, this was by my foot. One of many orphaned coral "pies."
  2. Any trilobite sites in Alsace?

    Hello, I am asking the community members who live in or near Alsace, if they know any good trilobite fossil sites because me and a few friends have been planing to do a fossil trip and we want to know whether there are some fossil grounds worth visiting near or in Alsace. best regards, indominus rex
  3. Big Partial Eldredgeops

    From the album Middle Devonian

    Eldredgeops rana (thorax and pygidium) Middle Devonian Upper Ludlowville Formation Hamilton Group Briggs Road Quarry Randolphville, New York This one and 7/8 of an inch long partial specimen is way bigger than any of my other complete or partial specimens of this species. If it had been complete it would have stretch well over two inches.
  4. A mini fossil museum exists within the lobby of the Park Hyatt in Chicago, just off Michigan Avenue. I'm guessing not too many people know about it unless they're guests at the hotel. It's a wonderful display of very large Moroccan trilobites, ammonites and various other fossils from around the world. It is free, of course, because it's in the lobby and a nice diversion if you're ever in the area. Another added bonus is it's open 24 hours.
  5. Can anyone please spare any thoughts about these? You see loads on eBay, spanning from laughable forgeries, to partially real, to entirely real. Not sure about these. My guess would be at least partially real, but I'd be interested in the thoughts of anyone more experienced.
  6. Iowa Quarry

    Last Sunday I had the opportunity to travel to East Central Iowa to collect Devonian fossils. It was a nice foggy morning drive to the quarry. Upon approaching the quarry, there was a house burning down- a odd, surreal scene. At the bottom of the quarry could smell the smoke from the house. No pics of the quarry were permitted which is too bad as it is a geologically fascinating place. Devonian Cedar Valley formation, lower Solon exposed as well as Pennsylvanian karsts. Here are a few of my finds. Hexagonaria Trilobites. Eldredgeops peeking out from the rocks Acleistoceras sp And last, but not least, this nice crystal. Thanks for looking. Cheers
  7. Malvinella buddeae

    From the album Trilobites

    Taxonomy: Malvinella buddeae Age: Lower Devonian (Belen Fm) Location: La Paz, Bolivia Source: Purchased
  8. Today I spent about two hours near Lawrenceburg, Indiana collecting some Ordovician fossils. I had a lot of luck with collecting some great looking complete brachiopods that I believe might be Herbertella, but I am going to ask the experts @Herb and @Peat Burns on this formation and see if they can correct any mistakes or unidentified finds. Rafinesquina ponderosa Platystrophia? It was bryozoan heaven today, as shown by some of the pics below. One piece was extremely large. Trilobites Parts ? Gastropods- "Sinuites" Unknown ? And some very nice small hash plates that are probably my favorite fines of the day.
  9. Today on day 2, I spent about six hours in the on and off rain, near Lawrenceburg, Indiana collecting Ordovician fossils. I found numerous trilobite parts, but nothing complete. Things that believe are parts of trilobites- "Isotelus" fragments. These two pieces were on a very large block that was not feasible to try and move. I figured that I would try and get them out, but unfortunately, I was not successful . Many Cephalopods – Brachiopods- "Platystrophia" "Rafinisquina" Gastropods– Believe these to be "Cyclonema". Bryozoan– Crinoid Stems– How they were found:

  11. Hey everyone, I'm looking for trip suggestions for this December. My wife and I recently had a little time free up and we have flight/hotel points to redeem. We'd prefer somewhere that's not super cold (we're from Colorado) but something that also has some fun things to do besides collecting, like hiking or exploring. I've been considering trips to NC, SC, or the Peace River. I'd love to hear from anyone who would have some suggestions for places where we can vacation and I can get out for a few afternoons to look for cool specimens. I'd be particularly interested in fish/shark tooth locations, but invertebrates would also be cool (especially ammonites, trilobites, etc). Let me know what you guys think - any suggestion is appreciated!

  13. My wife and I just got back from a 1700-mile road trip from our home in Northern California to do some trilobite hunting in Utah and Nevada. It was a 5-day trip, with a total of about 8 hours of digging spread across 2 days, but well worth it. I will give you the highlights here. After driving across California, we spent the first night in Reno, then headed out on Highway 50 toward the U-Dig fossil quarry out of Delta, Utah. We spent the second night in Ely, Nevada. Along the way, we stopped in Austin for lunch and helped the owner of a nearby trading post identify an unknown fish fossil they had for sale (you can read about that here). We got to U-Dig mid-morning of the third day and spent half a day there. The last 20 miles is a drive along a well-maintained dirt road (good enough that with my stock 4WD SUV I could drive 50-55 mph along most of it). Other people on this forum have posted about their experiences at U-Dig, so I won’t spend a lot of time repeating the basics. We were pleased with the support we got from Gene and if you’ve never been there, I would recommend it. This was my second time there (the first was 8 years ago), and my wife’s first time. I have to say we weren’t as successful as on my last visit, but still got a good haul. Most, however, were only molts or partials, we got very few full trilobites. I’ve included some photos below. Lots of prep work still remaining, and I’ll probably split several of the slabs again to see what else I might find. If you go, one word of advice. They will provide you with a chisel-edge rock hammer, a 2-lb sledge and large chisel, and a bucket to hold everything you find. I brought all my own stuff and am glad I did. They show you how to split the shale with the chisel edge of the hammer, but I found that to be a fairly coarse way to do it. I found it much easier to use thin rock-splitting chisels like these. They are cheap, so I’d recommend you take one or two along. The next day we headed out to Caliente, Nevada, to dig at the Oak Springs Trilobite Site just off Highway 93. There is no fee to dig here, which means there is no one to advise you, you’re on your own. This is another Cambrian site with the possibility of finding several species of Olenellus trilobites. We got there just after lunch and spent the afternoon there. The parking area is about a quarter mile from the highway down a good dirt road (but not a 50-mph road!). Most people park there and walk a quarter mile along a developed path to the dig. If you’ve done your homework, though, you’ll know you can continue another short distance and park just at the base of the swale where the trilobites are. That makes it an easy walk, especially if you are carrying a lot of tools. in addition to my tool bag, I was carrying a Harbor Freight pry bar and my brand new Estwing PaleoPick, so I was happy to shorten the walk. You can tell when you are at the site because it is littered with broken pieces of shale and there are potholes all around where people have been digging. We spent the first couple of hours without any luck as I moved from one location to another. Then I moved to yet another location and immediately saw a cephalon so I knew my luck was changing. It turned out to be a mini mother-lode of cephalons but no full trilobites, which apparently are very rare. While we found a few cephalons among the loose pieces of shale, I had much better success digging out larger slabs and splitting them. I haven’t yet gone through them in detail to make good identifications but they look primarily like Olenellus species, which are what you will predominantly find. Some sample photos below. Given that I didn’t have to pay to dig and it took considerable effort to find anything, I have to say this was the more enjoyable day of digging. But if you go, be aware that many people who go there don’t find anything. The day we were there I only saw one other person. (He tagged along with my success to dig nearby.) On the way home, we took Nevada Highway 375, known as “The Extraterrestrial Highway” because it runs close to the infamous Area 51. We stopped in the tiny hamlet of Rachel to visit the Little A’le’Inn, a souvenir shop, diner, and motel. If you get the chance, be sure to stop in. On my last U-Dig adventure I spent a night there, which was quite an experience (you can read about it here). I don’t think it has changed much in the last 8 years except there were more tourists there this time. Overall, we had a great time. Once I sort through everything I will post a few samples for help with identification. The sign along US Highway 6: U-Dig office: Steve digging (friendly dogs belong to another digger): The haul back at home: Elrathia kingii (I think it's a molt): Small Elrathia kingii: Peronopsis (needs more prep):
  14. I am hoping to add some trilobites to my fossil collection. I am especially looking for ones that look cartoonish for lack of a better word. Ones with big bulging eyes and the like, but I am open to all offers. Let me know if you have any and are willing to trade. -Matt
  15. Cambrian oddysey

    Hi everybody!!! How's life my friends ??? It's been a long time Recently I went with my father to look for trilobites in Cambrian sediments. Sadly we didn't found any complete trilo, but we've found other specimens. I Hope you like It

  18. Today I took a quick ride to the small suburb of Evanston, right out side of Chicago. This is the home of Dave's Down To Earth Rock Shop and Prehistoric Life Museum. If memory serves me correct, Dave's has been in Evanston for the past 40+ years and it is a family owned business. Dave's recently moved to it's new home on Main Street and if you every get a chance to be in the Chicago area, this is a must see- you will definitely not be disappointed. From the outside, you would not believe that this store has a museum that houses such a great variety of fossil life and the most extensive collection / variety of Mazon Creek fauna that I have ever seen, including 3 Holotype Mazon Creek fossils named after Dave and his parents who found them. Here are some overview pictures of the Museum. Here are some overview of the various displays.
  19. Drotops Megalomanicus

    Drotops Megalomanicus found it mislabeled and under priced at the mall today at a random booth, was a very unexpected pleasure measures somewhere around 5.3-5.4 inches, the condition is not to bad.
  20. Trade-Europe

    Hi! I would like to exchange these fossils for Miocene material or Mesozoic/Cenozoic echinoids/corals. Unfortunately, I can only trade with european members. 1-Mosasaur teeth;spinosaur tooth;otodus obliquus tooth (if you need more info, please pm me).
  21. Could anyone show me how to tell Eldredgeia venustus from Eldredgeia eocryphaeus in these specimens?
  22. Seven stars pa

    Bugs and more. If anyone can give specifics on what we found it would be great. This was a first time experience for my girlfriend and she found a nice curled bug she worked out of the rock.
  23. S.S. White Airbrasive

    I picked up this Airbrasive model H from a machine shop the other day for a decent price. The shop still had it in production and it seems to have been taken care of pretty well. Can anyone tell me how old it might be? Also looking for a manual if any of you S.S. White users know where I can locate one. Looks like the vibrator has been replaced and everything seems to work on it. I'm thinking the hand piece should be replaced with something else but not quite sure where I want to get that. I typically use dolomite (44u crystal mark) on the shale I collect from the Maquoketa formation of N.E. Iowa. Any advice or tips on this unit would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
  24. Trip to a new (to me) site

    A friend gave me directions to a locality in Huntingdon/Centre County PA. This is a excavation in the Lower Member of the Ordovician Reedsville Shale (possibly now called the Antes Shale). There were lots of Bryzooians, a variety of shells some with pyrite coatings, trilobites, and crinoid stem pieces. Most all of the fossils seemed to be casts/molds. The shale is so fissile that it was difficult to collect anything whole!I can't wait to get back and sped some time doing some actual digging & splitting though Wednesday was a beautiful day to spend in the woods. I probably would have collected more but kept getting distracted by the 3 or 4 kinds of butterflies flitting around. The last two photos show things that I'm not sure what they are. The circled item is on a small plate almost covered with bryzooians.
  25. Is This New York Trilobite Id'able?

    Hello, this trilobite was found in rock from somewhere upstate new york. It was an interesting shape different from what I have found before but it is very worn to tell exactly what it is to my knowledge, is it to broken up to id? If not I'll let the new york trilobite experts here take this one. The trilo measures a little over an inch.
