  1. Hello everyone, When I joined the forum I shared a few of my Buffalo, New York trilobites but only my rare Pseudodechenella rowi trilobites. I said I was eventually share some other trilobites so here I am haha. The winter has kinda been a bummer recently in upstate New York but we just had a freak warm day recently. In the future I want to share my Eldredgeops collection, brachs, cephalopods, plant specimens but I’m not going to rush it. In this post I’m going to share some of my Greenops sp. that I have collected exclusively from the wanakah shale on the Lake Erie shore south of Buffalo, New York. I think I may have an example of Greenops barberi and Greenops grabaui in my collection but I guess I’m not 100% confident in the ID. These 4 are probably my best specimens I’ve managed. For reasons most likely related to environment they are not common and they do not like to preserve well. I would consider them pretty rare actually. Ill follow up with a few more photos of some “lower shelf” specimens I’ve found lol.
  2. Hey everyone, Ive had this odd fossil for years and I do not know what it is. It’s from the Hamilton group, more specifically the lower Wanakah shale, Lake Erie shore Buffalo New York. I have a pic from a great publication I bought (got it in the mail today!) that shows a really great close up of the stratigraphic interval I found it in (Miller year?) it came from one of the 4 trilo beds, I think the top one. I rediscovered it while going through and organizing some old fossils. Now that I’ve joined the forum I have access to more resources! This fossil is 19mm (.75in) long....the length matches the diameter of a US penny. It appears segmented (4 segments) and I actually had to glue 2 segments back together. Each end segments have a peak of some sort. One end has a tall single peak and the other end has a segment with a double peak (but much smaller peaks than the tall single peak on the opposite side). The middle segments are more rounded. The fossil itself seems like remains you would see with trilobites.....that black colored exoskeleton remain on one side and shale on the other but I don’t think it’s a trilo. It just seems like it persevered in a similar way so I think it’s the remains of something “hard” made of calcium carbonate but idk what. I cant even guess.....I only had Grabau’s geology of 18 mile creek book for reference and I don’t see a match. Maybe I just don’t have the access to the paper/book describing this or I do and don’t know it. My guesses (not confident guesses lol) consist of.....conodont? Placoderm? Coprolite? Lump of nothing? Tooth of some kind? Thanks for reading and thank you to anyone that tries to ID this! Al

  9. I was barely recovered from the Brechin, Ontario trip the weekend before when I headed out to the Buffalo area, an annual pilgrimage July 4th weekend for the past four years. Usually the highlight of the weekend is the planned meet up with Tim (Fossildude19) to do a bit of fossil collecting together. Others often join us, but this year it was just the two of us. Weather was perfect and we hit our favorite spot; Smokes Creek, a Windom Shale, Moscow Formation, Middle Devonian Hamilton Group site. This is Tim doing what he enjoys most- breaking rocks:
