Lovely phyllocarid! :wub: :wub:  I'm envious!  Stopping in at DSR has become a regular thing on my trips between Ontario and Georgia, but I have yet to score an Echinocaris, let alone one that nice.  One of these days it'll happen.

You know it's not normal to get this excited by a clam, don't you Jeff?  ;)   This is why I'm so grateful to have found TFF and friends like you and Tim. I'm glad you had an enjoyable and successful expotition.

That phyllocarid is just like the one I got from DSR in May!! Wow. What an amazing find Jeff!! Stunning 

 

Funny thing is I went to Briggs and DSR on a super short 3 hour hunt on Sunday the 30th haha. I was also at penn Dixie and ran into James the day before on Saturday. I did 90 minutes at each spot on sunday. found a really really quality greenops from Briggs rd. I was going to do a very short post showing the best few finds from the weekend. just hard to find time lol. 

 

Those greenops are really nice as well!! 3 in one day! My best is only 2. What an amazing day!

How wonderful Jeff. Looks like we'll  have to hit those spots with you so keep us in mind.

Am also going to try that technique of going into the bushes and emerge to find stuff, on my next outing here.  Gordon

Except on this forum. It's like a dating site for people who are into clams. You know who you are! Yeah, me too. :D:default_clap2:

Thanks Don. I already have a number of specimens of phyllocarids I collected back in 2014-2015 at DSR. I haven't found any recently until now so I'm pretty stoked. What have you been finding at DSR?

Hi Gordon. Thanks for the positive commentary. You definitely have to check out DSR someday. Also try picking up a rock and throwing it down to break it. That technique has worked well for me on my last two trips.

Thanks Tony. This made up for the past two trips I was skunked on trilobites though I did find other interesting stuff. Still looking to collect some Triassic ammonites this fall in Nevada.

My Middle Devonian and Cretaceous bivalves are certainly one of the highlights of my collection. Glad to see there are at least a few others who are into that.

Lots of nice bivalves and brachiopods, a few gastropods, hyolithids and some straight-shelled nautiloids, a complete Greenops and an Eldredgeops lacking the pygidium, and one rhinocarid phyllocarid.  I've only been able to stop by a couple of times and only for an hour or two as I am always behind schedule to be in Ottawa or else it's late in the day and I'm dealing with fading daylight.  One of these days I'll have to time things to meet up with Forum folks for a more extended stay.
