Hey Gordon, 

Glad to see you got out for a hunt. 

Very cool finds - the pustulose one is most likely an Eldredgeops  sp. cephalon.

Thanks for posting these.

Very cool looking fauna, Gordon. Congratulations. Thanks for posting it. I'd like to check that out sometime. Can't decide if it's Middle or Upper Devonian. Have to do more research on those finds. Trilobites, I know are rare in the Upper Devonian of New York, Any other stuff from there?
