While walking around my campsite I found some quarried stone filled with brachiopods and maybe some sort of ichnofossil?

I might need some help on some identification...

Suspected Rhinocaris:

Not sure about this one. I think it may be an Echinocaris? I'm sure a more experienced member can confirm.

Some total unknowns:

Yup. Echinocaris  punctata. And Rhinocaris columbina  for the previous one.

 

Your unknowns are a squish-out, (shell filled with mud, then was crushed, causing the mud to "squish out", and cover the shell)  and a crinoid stem imprint. 

Nice finds and report. :)

That's really interesting. Didn't know squish-outs existed.

Great finds!  The Glyptotomaria and Mucrospirifer are especially beautiful :wub:

Very nice finds. I agree with Fossildude19s Ids. The phyllocarid and Rhinocaris are your most impressive specimens. Congratulations. DSR is always a worthwhile stop.

Glad you had a wonderful trip upstate! Watkins Glen is beautiful. I've never looked for fossils in that area because I wasn't paying attention to fossils the times I've been, but now when I see lots of rock I'm like :drool:. I'm fortunate to live about 1/2 hour from DSR and I love it there. You found a great variety!

It looks like you had a wonderful family get-together, and your fossil-hunting finds were excellent!  I've always enjoyed DSR.  You did well!
