    what is this sponge or coral ?

    Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek, I found this odd coral or sponge fossil. Does anyone know what one it is ? Here is a photo:

    unknown fossil

    Found this in a creek bed, middle devonian, near King Ferry, NY. Was wondering what it could be? It makes a circle. Looks to be a little chert also. Thanks Greg

    Could this be an imprint from a Nautiloid Spyroceras nuntium in Sand stone? (1st photo). 2nd photo is opposite side. 3rd photo = much smaller (I believe mud mold. Why I ask is that it seems very large compared to the ones I've found...and to make sure of the id. I forgot to add: Middle Devonian, Cayuga Lake, King Ferry, NY. Thanks Greg

    Any one know what this is?

    Found at the Kashong Member, Finger Lakes, NYS, Middle Devonian. I've not seen this before...I'm assuming that it is the "inside" of something. The slab is mostly made up of Bryazoans, a few Crinoid stem pieces. I've added some others to make it more interesting.

    Stereolasma rectum?

    Found in Kashong Member, Central NYS, Middle Devonian. Is this a Stereolasma rectum or is it too small to tell? Found alone in a small slab. I'm pretty sure it was broken off...but it must have been small to begin with. The tip measures approx. 1/16", it is 1/4" long and the top is approx. 3/16". Thanks Greg

    Bryozoa help

    Middle Devonian, Seneca Cnty., NYS, Kashong Member(?). When I look at this rock it looks as though there are 3 kinds of Bryozoans. The first photo is of the rock itself...the 2nd photo include lines of what I see as different Bryozoans. The Blue line (3rd photo) shows pronounced verticle lines, Red line (4th photo) shows "elongated" structures and Green line(5th photo) shows square structures. Am I looking at it wrong? Id would be helpful as well as clarification on what I think I see. Thanks Greg

    Coral or Bryozoan

    Middle Devonian, Finger Lakes region, Hamilton Group, both are "branching forms". Today I found what I at first thought was a colonial rugose coral Eridophyllum(1st photo by someone on another forum). The outside appearance looks to me to be very simalar to what I found(3rd photo). However, on closer inspection, I realized that the open ends were quite different. In his you can see septa...on mine the inside of the ends are "grainy"(2nd photo). Also it should be noted that mine has been broken at the upper sections. It's been suggested that mine might actually be Bryazoa. Any thoughts?

    Found from the Middle Devonian, Deep Run member, Finger Lakes Region. A very small "shell". Positive and Negative. Thanks Greg

    Id please

    Found: Tully Limestone, Central NY, Middle Devonian. I'm pretty sure it's a Bryozoan, no, maybe a coral...I don't know? Perhaps Atactotoechus fruticosus? Thanks Greg
  14. I grabbed all these samples over the years from the same rock quarry in western New York, which excavates the Middle Devonian Onondaga Formation. I believe most of these are corals, but I was hoping someone could help specify what type of coral so I can organize them a bit better. I resized the pictures with the provided links to lower the quality, hopefully they are not too big still. Appreciate the help. 1. Two different fossils in this cherty material, on left I believe this is Rugose Coral because visible septa, but on the right above the letter "L" in the coin I am not
  15. This is a photo(color photos in the hand) of the specimen I found. Middle Devonian, Tully Limestone, Central NYS. I was told that it was a Phacopida Asteropygin, non described species, and was sent this other photo (non color) photo. I would like to get the id name straight. This is a quote from the preparer: "Greg trilobite was almost prepared we are another time in lock down... snarge... but in any case let me know if u wanna restoration parts were skin was missed.... i can resto in high quality but i need to find a good metacanthina to copy missed skin or medium quality apoxie and paint
  16. This was found in a bucket of fossils/rocks from the West side of Seneca Lake in Central NYS...Middle Devonian. I asked the guy that gave them to me for identification. At first he said "Eridphyllum subcaspitosum" and then wrote back and told me it could be a Bryozoan. It's a little weird because I see no "vertical striations" as I see in the books and online. The end of the main section as you can see is mangled, it's right branch end is closed, but it's left branch is rounded as is most of the fossil. Also, the bottom is open and round. I explain this as I see nothing in the centers th

    inside mud mold...but of what?

    Found in the Skaneateles Formation, Central NYS, Middle Devonian. This has four sides a pointed end and a broken end. All four sides have "shell grain"? There are "similar" shaped ones under Bi Valves in Wilson's book called Goniophora, but listed as Lower Devonian. There are several pages listed in Linsley's book, but no period mentioned. Thanks Greg

    I found this near Seneca Lake in NYS...Middle Devonian I'm not sure, but I think it is the whole piece shown. There is matrix covering it so, I'm not sure. The only thing that I've come up with is from Linsely's book and it's title is Bryozoan "stick form. Thanks Greg

    What it this?

    This rock is full of surprises for me. It was found near Seneca Lake in NYS, Middle Devonian. I don't know at all what I'm looking at...the only thing I recognize are the ends of Crinoid Stems. Any help is greatly appreciated Greg

    This Bivalve is from the Middle Devonian, near Seneca Lake in NYS. Could this be Modiella pygmaea? Thanks Greg

    This Gastropod is from Middle Devonian, near Seneca Lake in NYS. Could this be a Bembexia sulcomarginata? I purchased the book by Linsely...but, I'm finding a lot of mistakes in it...page references, names and such. Thanks Greg
  22. grg1109

    Id please

    I assumed this was some kind of Gastropod, but now wondering if it is a sponge...may not be either. I can't find a Gastropod which looks likely in Linsley's book, and there are no sponges listed. Searched on the internet and found sponges...but the "squares" look bigger than the ones on this fossil. Photos are of top, edge and underneath. Middle Devonian, Finger Lakes Region of NY, near Seneca Lake. Thanks Greg

    Possible Terataspis piece?

    Hello all! So I’ve been messing around with my collection lately and I came across this piece. It’s from the Onondaga Limestone, probably from Onondaga County. I was wondering if there’s any chance it’s a weathered piece of a Terataspis Grandis? Or if it’s something else entirely. Thanks for the help! Owen
