Dipleura?

Recommended Posts

emmag15

My friend found this piece in Upstate New York. My best guess is that it’s the back half a Dipleura trilobite. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!!

Looks like it to me, but a few better pics would help. Maybe of other angles too.

I’ll be able to physically hold it tomorrow so I’ll get better pictures then!

You always hear " upstate New York this" and "upstate New York that" but do you ever hear someone refer to "downstate New York"? :zzzzscratchchin:

I agree Doren, it is just like in Chicago, there are tons of pigeons, though in my whole life,  I have never seen a baby pigeon.

Actually yes...New York  City and Long Island. But it always seemed weird that EVERTHING else was considered "upstate".  Hudson Valley, Adirondacks, Catskills, Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, Mohawk Valley, etc...

As a resident of “Upstate” New York... I can confidently say that this map is accurate.:thumbsu::heartylaugh:

So basically anything north of the "big city" is upstate. :P

Doesn't anyone have a text tool in their image-editing software? It's much easier and cleaner when you do! :headscratch:

 Using the tools at our disposal to most easily accomplish our task?! Lol. Are you new to the internet?

Just giving you a hard time, but still wondering why these tools don't have a text tool...

Yeah, though it was just "the city" to me. The place I was born. Outside of a few counties where people commuted into the city, I always thought of the rest of New York as upstate. A place for skiing, hiking or camping, and a place I always prefered to the city. It took me a long time to consider even Boston a city. I eventually came to see that the rest of the universe didn't really revolve around "the" city. And now I wish I had spent more time hunting fossils in New Jersey and "upstate." Still time to make up for it though. I'm still looking for that fist-sized Dipleura at DSR. Nice find, Rachel.

Much nicer! And it wasn't hard to do, otherwise you wouldn't have bothered, right? ;)  I guess I've never looked at a county map of NY state before, but I notice that each of the 5 boroughs are also counties, but some of them have different names, eg. Staten Island is Richmond County. Ya learn something new every day, it's true.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who's responsible for diversions from a thread's intended topic, it's usually a big dogpile! :tiphat:

The designer part of me appreciates this...but I didn't post the map...I just made the comment that opened things up...dogpile? Really?  He he.

This is really late, but I was able to see the fossil in person and it was absolutely stunning!!  They said there was more there but they pulled on it and it just came off... tragic :(
