Devonian Fossil ID’s from Near Kingston NY

Recommended Posts

JFollowing the advice of some of the people on the forum here I spent part of yesterday afternoon collecting fossils near Kingston NY on the road cutouts on route 9W I was able to get quite a few decent hash plates consisting of Devonian Brachiopods. Unfortunately, I am not yet familiar enough with the area to identify these to the genus or species level (the only brachiopods I know how to ID are Laptaena because they are my favorites and sadly none of these are them). I also found what I think might be a trilobite tale but I think it could also just as easily be more brachiopods, and one fossil, the second to last one pictured here I think might be a broken platyceras or similar Gastropod but I am just not sure. Any help with ID’s would be much appreciated. I also have no way to get images with a reference for scale until later today as I am at my grandparents summer house which is basically a cabin in the woods lol with very little in the way of rulers or even coins.

I think so. 

The brachiopods are spirifers.

That is a trilobite pygidium.

For your future trips or any occasion, you can print the paper proposed in the first link of my signature and laminate it. So it will be useful to you on all your outings or elsewhere ;)
