  1. Mainefossils

    Brachiopod id

    This is another fossil from the Silurian Leighton Fm, Maine. It is an excellently preserved internal and external mold of a brachiopod. It is similar to the Salopina species that I am constantly finding in this formation, but this brachiopod's valve is more strongly curved, instead of almost flat. It also has less numerous striae, and they almost reach the median process. As well as this, the dental plate is thinner and curves inward more strongly, and the ctenophoridium is wider. Any help on its identification would be greatly appreciated. Here are some pictures of it (internal mold on the le
  2. I had the opportunity to visit another Silurian site in the northern Georgia/southern Tennessee area. This is now the third such site I've visited, but the first in the Rockwood Formation as opposed to the Red Mountain Formation. As far as I can tell there's very little different between the two lithologically and paleontologically, with the Rockwood and Red Mountain occupying pretty much the same stratigraphic position. The difference seems to be that the TGS prefers to use the term "Rockwood" to describe it's Niagaran Silurian system and the GGS and AGS prefer the term "Red Mountain", mostly
  3. Hello TFF friends, I recently recieved some Ordovician Brachiopods from Ohio and would love some help with getting IDs for them, First up are two Lingulid Brachiopods from the Waynesville Formation: I have not been able to find much on the brachiopods from this formation, the brachiopods also look slightly different so I am not sure if that indicates some kind of different species or these are just differences between individuals. Both are about 1.5 cm in length Next up are two rhynchonellids, these two are preserved together and are about 2 cm in width, perhaps Lep

    Elko Nevada Fossils

    I found these 5/10/21 around Elko Nevada Nevada in an area rich with coral and Brachiopods. Any help identifying theses so appreciated! Ty!
  5. Just wanted to post some pics of my finds from 2020 I have a Silurian roadcut in Davidson county, a Devonian spot in Parsons, and I hunt the roadcuts that line hwy 840 in middle Tennessee. I am Brand new to this forum, and I'm looking for new collecting spots I can trade locals! Visit my page on here to see more of my finds!
  6. I would appreciate some help identifying some of my latest finds. Since I am in Southern Indiana, I know many of my finds are silicified or geodized and I kind of know what some of them are but I want to be sure. I apologize if this post seems to be a bombardment of pictures that I am asking help identifying but I didn't want to post too many separate posts. Hopefully I've correctly uploaded pictures & if I am doing anything incorrectly please give me advise. First are what look to be turtle shells or are they just geodes moonlighting as turtle shells?

  11. Who want to help me ? I would be happy to offer brachiopods from France ,but also various nice Echinoids or carboniferous plants in exchange of new species i still not have .
  12. I had the opportunity to collect in the Red Mountain Formation recently, and considering the seeming lack of accessible sites in the area (RIP Tibb's Bridge) I thought it'd be good to show some of my finds here and say there is some stuff out there. At first I thought the site was in the Mississippian Lavender or Floyd Shales, which was my initial reason for venturing out to it as I didn't have the opportunity to collect in marine Mississippian units closer to home. I can say now with almost 100% certainty it's actually within the Red Mountain Formation, an early Silurian unit that is also a p
  13. This all started over a year ago. I was selected as Member of the Month and a couple of TFF members from Texas invited me down to the big state to collect. I primarily collect in my home region, the northeast, but I've taken fossil forays to New Mexico, Kentucky, and Germany and was willing to consider a trip to Texas and the opportunity to visit some classic fossil sites and collect fossils that are outside my usual focus. I began planning this about ten months ago, contacted potential fossil collecting partners and did my own research on fossil sites, geology, and the types of fossils I woul
  14. After seeing @connorp Fossil of the month entry that came from this location, I decided to stop out at this roadcut for a couple hours today. The weather was perfect, high 70’s and like almost every other trip, I had the place to myself. This cut exposes the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone Member of the Bond Formation and never disappoints, that is if you are looking for brachiopods. Unfortunately, this time I did not find and shark teeth, like I did on my last two recent trips. I did find one of my largest Echinoconchus brachiopods tha
  15. Hello everyone, I recently received a lot of 3 brachiopods from Spain. Here they are with their original labels that they were listed with and that I received them with: The issue is that when I began to do a bit more research on these species, specifically Hexarhytis the paper that comes up shows and describes a completely different brachiopod. Looking up the other Athyrid the results I got were much closer but still not exactly like the brachiopod I have, but since I got more results for this search I could now do a bit of looking into the closely related taxa whic
  16. I bought these brachiopods and didn't think about how they are so small that you could hardly see them when they are on dislpay in my shelf. If anyone knows how to build a magnifying display I would aprecciate it. I have know idea if this is possible but even if it's not I appreciate your responses.

    4 very strange brachiopods

    Perhaps somebody have seen these very strange shape before?(i saw a lot of brachiopods before but never like those before)the very big problem is I can't say the stage ,the location, the label will be "Known unto God "
  18. Hello everyone. I’ve been chiseling apart some of my less than fabulous Mississippian Coldwater Shale packstones that I find in South Haven (MI) on Lake Michigan. Typically, I’ll discover various brachiopods, a few gastropods, various bryozoan, some ostracods, and little bits of flora that look like tiny seaweed. However, recently I opened up a packstone with a very different fossil inside. I have nothing else like it in my collection. A few folks I know have speculated the things I mentioned in the title of this post. The second picture is... I guess I would call it a ca
  19. Last summer I posted a trip report about finding some Pennsylvanian black shale in a river bed in East Central Illinois http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/106753-628-illinois-black-shale-trip-w-listracanthus/. I was able to visit the site again once more in the fall last year when the river was running much lower and collect more and larger pieces of the finely bedded and fissile shale. Since then I have been slowly splitting and going through the rocks I brought home, and finding many interesting fish parts- that is definitely the dominant fauna presen
  20. Since the weather was beautiful this morning after I did some rowing and grocery shopping, I decided to hit the Oglesby Road cut again. This cut exposes the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone Member of the Bond Formation. This was another great day, I found another Petalodus tooth today, it is nice, but not as nice as the one I found last Sunday. I found a lot of huge brachiopods today after they popped out of the matrix. The exposure- Composita argent
  21. Back in Oct. the Dayton Gem and Mineral Society had a field trip to the St Paul Stone Quarry in IN. Waldron shale. I've been slowly prepping my finds (along with other stuff) and finally completed my task. By far the most different piece I've found in a long time....a Rafinesquina-type brach covered in a bryozoan, with a Calymene face sitting on top, surrounded by pyrite. Size = 1.5" W x 1" D x 1" T. A complete, 3/4 prone Calymene. About 1.25" long. Some complete gastropods, all whose brown "shell" is pyrite. Some gastropods that are
  22. A few weeks ago, just when we were inundated with the spring muddy season, I stopped at a site that features Decorah Shale with a little Platteville mixed in. If you haven't collected in the Decorah Shale, let me say it stays MUDDY even in a drought!! The site had been worked over for a finish grade. This means the site will soon be lost to vegetative overgrowth. So I proceeded to collect a 5 gallon bucket of mucky matrix to clean and examine at home, in case the weeds invade quickly. Here are some select finds from that bucket.

    Literature on fossils

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I have been looking for literature on the following for a while now, and have not been successful. I was wondering if anyone already had information on the following, or can direct me to a place where I can look for it myself. Brachiopods, specifically Lingulids (classification and identification) Salopina genus ( classification and identification), this genus was moved from Orthis, for further clarification Rhychonellida (classification and identification, at least to the genus level). Camarotoechia genus (classificat
  24. One of the nice things about being on the team to design a new facility is you can get what you want. All retaking walls and benches are locally quarried Stoner Limestone from Weeping Water, Nebraska. I can’t wait to get my scribe and chisels out...
