Searching for trilobites in Tully, NY

Recommended Posts

Darktooth

Hello from Liverpool N.Y. As Tim has already said complete trilos from that particular site are rare. I have hunted there a few times and have only came away with partials. There are some secret spots somewhere in Tully, but I am not privy to that info. There are better spots out in Madison County.

Congratulations. Some nice finds there. The Rhinocarid is uncommon. The goniatite is cool also. As far as I can tell most of the brachiopods are Mucrospirifer mucronatus. I also see some Devonchonetes in the third photo.

Very nice finds! Like Dave said check out Madison county. It’s very good! Great photos by the way :dinothumb: I wish mine were as clear my lighting isn’t great in my place

Thank you, Al Tahan. I bought this light from Amazon to help me see the fossils I've collected. The circular LED lighting seems to do a nice job illuminating the fossils to photograph them.

 

I almost forgot to mention: It looks like we will be going to Deep Springs Road tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion, everyone :).

Very Nice finds overall! The brachiopod plates are very nice. Too bad about the trilobites, but those pieces of Pygidium are pretty cool!

 

This Mucrospirifer is very intriguing as it looks like it has some epibiont encrusters! I am not entirely able to tell from the picture, but it looks like they are some sort of sponge. Anyone else have any ideas?

Good luck at DSR. I'm sure you'll have a satisfying experience.

Good luck, Paul! ;) 

DSR is smaller, but has more density and variety of finds, it would seem. :) 

 

BTW, I am jealous of your proximity to that site!           :envy:

Thanks thebluecatapilla, Jeffery P, Fossildude19 and Monica.

 

My wife and I went to DSR this past Saturday and found a few trilobite pieces but nothing was complete. It was worth taking the trip and I will probably post some photos of the fossils we found soon.

We can show you the spots to look Paul, if you come during the group trip. ;)

We will definitely try to be there, thank you very much. I would be happy just to sit on the sidelines and watch the people with experience do their thing.
