This is my husband’s favorite find of our trip to Penn Dixie. It seems we both favor hash plates. :)

I had hoped to find three trilobites in this little rock. Unfortunately, I broke it while trying to clean it yesterday. :wacko:

Here’s another trilobite I just found in one of my rocks from Penn Dixie.

Another Penn Dixie hash plate and a lovely brachiopod:

What is that long, thin object? @DevonianDigger ?

It is a fossil:P Maybe a cephalopod?

Crinoid stem?? Does it connect to the blob above the trio bit??

My money is on crinoid stem. Could you get a pic of the cross section at the end please? That will solidify the answer promptly!

Until this morning, I hadn’t even noticed that it could be connected. I’m still not certain if it is or not.

That blobby thing looks like a horn coral, so probably not. Still, it may be connected to something underneath those two. Nice finds!

Spectacular finds! I'm glad so many TFF members made this event and added so many great fossil to their collective collections. What a day it must have been. The weather and temps looked like they were  very nice though I did read about a couple of "time outs" due to the threat of lightning so I guess there was unsettled weather in the area. Looking forward to seeing more photos of everybody's finds once they get them cleaned up and have time to take some photos. Some impressive specimens already on display in this thread.

 

:thumbsu:

 

Cheers.

It definitely looks like it is. But it is not. The "blob" is definitely a horn coral. I'm still putting my money on a crinoid. There are some odd-looking ones that come out of the Bay View. They get very water worn even before they come out of the ground in that layer. I'll keep looking to see if I can find a more specific ID.

Based on its size I would think the most likely possibility is the distal end of a crinoid arm. I would not rule out coleolus sp which are also mid devonian of New York

Thanks! Crinoids are my absolute favorite fossil, so I am quite pleased with it. :)

Sorry, I shouldn't have said crinoid stem, I should've just left it at crinoid. Old habits. I would be willing to agree with Malcolm's assessment. Not going to be able to give a species, but the arm is likely.

Here are some of the brachiopods we collected at Penn Dixie, including a pocketful from the Wanakah Shale, which @DevonianDigger gave to me. Thanks again, Jay! :)

Lol, those are only half of the brachiopods we collected. Many are still embedded in hash plates. I’m having a difficult time removing them without breakage. :(
