Paulding, Ohio (April 2018)

Another great hunt in Paulding, OH.  Weather was windy, rainy, and cold, but neither the fossils nor the avid fossil hunter seemed to mind.  Here are some of the finds.  I have also begun a working species list for the site in the Ohio fossil sites subforum linked here:

Great finds!! So ironic you post Reptaria and Hederella right after I did. Never saw these posted before. Maybe never paid attention until I found some. Anyways, did you happen to leave anything behind as I am going to visit the site on the way to visit relatives over Memorial  Day weekend.

Thanks. Being back in the Devonian after they stopped allowing access to the spoil piles in Sylvania has been facilitated by the new park at Paulding and field trips organized by FUMMP.  Prior to that, I had been operating mostly in your old stomping grounds in the Cincinnatian.

Thanks, Mike. Unless you are what I call a cherry picker, you'll do fine (cherry pickers are those who are just there to find enrolled Eldredgeops).  I find their "middens" where in their search for trilos by breaking rocks, they've left a treasure trove of other goodies.  The frequency  of rollers has gone down.  They need to feather it out or bring in new material.  Regardless, I still find about 0.5 complete enrolled trilobites per trip (i.e. one every other trip).  Bring knee pads and prepare to crawl to get the good stuff. Let us know how you do.:popcorn:

thanks, I added a comment to your list, I guess it might have been in the wrong place, I am sorry if I inadvertantly screwed it up....great job, really helpful to me, btw. I crawled around on my knees in the rain....and cold, since I only had once shot at this while on my last trip to Michigan. Beautiful photography as well.

Thanks, Kane.  The coral peels are fun and it gives me some peace being able to have some level of certainty on the coral IDs.

No problem at all.  Let us know how you do on your upcoming trip there.
