    I found an arthropod (probably)

    Hello. I found a fossil quite some time ago, I do not remember the exact location but I found it somewhere in northern Israel. My initial thought was that this is a mantis shrimp fossil but now I don't think it's a mantis shrimp but I do believe it's some kind of an arthropod. I would love to hear any opinion about what this fossil may be and there is a picture with a covid mask for scale.
  2. Went for a bush walk today and found some beautiful track ways. These tracks and trails are part of the early permian, Ecca group, prince Albert formation. I don't really pay much attention to tracks, but these where just out of this world (for me atleast) and was definitely the find of this extremely hot day. These pictures do not do these fossils justice... Zoom in and enjoy.

    Ceratiocaris or Slimonia?

    Hi all. I have this specimen i bought fra a dealer in western europe It's from the Lesmahagow in scotland. I bought it as a Slimonia, but was later advised on facebook that it's in fact a ceratiocaris. What do you guys here think? I'm pretty convinced it's a ceratiocaris. What confuses me is that the dealer is quite experienced and he collected it himself decades ago, and got it id'ed by the museum in Edinburgh
  4. Hey everyone, I’ve been meaning to get this post up for a few days but I’ve been dealing with my poor cat inky (Sweetheart of a cat) who is on her final day of life today. I will have to put her down November 1st. Very sad time as she’s been my companion the last 13 years. I’m sure many can relate. I’ll try to keep the chatter short and just get up as many photos I can for you kind people on the forum to enjoy. I just got back recently from an amazing trip to Utah and Nevada (Oct/11/2020-Oct/18/2020) Where I was camping in the field and trilobite collecting for 6 days s
  5. Hi All. I was unsure where to put this message so hopefully this place is okay. I teach 7th grade Life Science and we are soon starting our coverage of major animal types (arthropods, echinoderms, molluscs, chordtates, etc). I am hoping to put together a teaching collection that can be used each year as we do this. If there are members here who are willing to donate any/all types of durable specimens (harder for young teens to destroy) that could be used to teach students the key features of these phyla. If you are willing and able to share can you please PM me directly. I do appreciate

    What Calymene Species Are These?

    Hello again everyone. These are two of my favorite fossils, both Calymene spp. The first one was owned by my teacher for his biology classroom until he agreed to sell it to me because I had grown to love it. Unfortunately, as you can see, its cephalon is very damaged so that makes it more difficult to tell what it is. I know that it's definitely a Calymene, but I'm wondering which species, if possible to tell. In my own personal research, I found that I believed he most closely resembled a Calymene tristani? but I am very much an amateur and am not sure on that. If anyone could give me some mo
  7. Hey everyone! Back at it again. This time I’ll keep it a little shorter and get to the fossils. I made it back out into the field last weekend and visited DSR and Cole Hill on Sunday 3/29/20 with fellow forum goer @DrDave. Usually we shake hands on our hellos and goodbyes like any two people would. It was odd not giving the usual greetings with a friend and keeping distance during social interaction. Almost feels rude it’s a weird feeling. You almost have to say “sorry I can’t touch you” so you don’t seem rude lol. Unusual times we must adjust to. Anyway. At DSR I have be
  8. I had a rough work week last week with Central New York experiencing major flooding. It forced me to work the weekend and kinda ruined my fossil hunting thoughts. I only worked half a day Saturday 11/02/19 so I took advantage of what little sunlight I had. I had to be home before 5 to go to the mall with my wife to return some soccer shoes.......married life lol. With travel time I figured out I could go to DSR and get 70-80 minutes to fossil hunt! I needed this to de-stress so I went for it . I didn’t get much time but I tried to make it count. I knew I wasn’t going to be doing any
  9. Hey everyone! I finally had a day to go out and enjoy a Saturday fossil hunting with no time limit!! I decided to check 2 middle Devonian locations that have yielded nice dipleura specimens in the past. I’m still looking for “that one” specimen....eventually I’ll find one. I didn’t find the trilobite I tasked myself to find but I did find awesome stuff on Saturday . So here is a little trip report from Saturday September 28, 2019 plus some extra stuff I found earlier in the month. I’ll throw it in at the end. I got up really early so I could get to
  10. Hey everyone! It’s been a crazy busy June, July and beginning of August for me! I just finished moving into my house and I just got married on August 9th so my life has been a tornado. As a result I haven’t been able to comment, participate and keep up with all you fine folks on the forum like I usually do. I was still able to get out collecting here and there and I met up with fellow forum member @DrDave and did some exploring for the lower Devonian eurypterid Erieopterus. I won’t report on that until I have something to share. I think me and Dave found the right ho
  11. Hello everyone! I found this specimen also in a creek on a walk through a local park north of Pittsburgh. Thinking it may be a burrow fossil, but if it is, was wondering if there is an actual scientific name for it, so I know how to file it away accordingly under the proper name. Found the term Cruziana online, and wondering if this would qualify. Does anyone have any opinions? Or, if it is a burrow, is there any way of narrowing down what might have made it i.e. trilobites/arthropods etc? Details: 1) Found in isolation/there were no other similar pieces

    What kind of arthropods are these?

    What do you think these are? Sorry, this is the only picture, and there is literally 0 information, so just your best thoughts from what you see here. I'll update any info if I can.

    Flexicalymene granulosa

    From the album: Urban Fossils of Toronto (Georgian Bay Formation, Lower Member)

    Flexicalymene granulosa, Mimico creek, Toronto, Ontario. Georgian Bay formation, late Ordovician. Complete specimen still embedded in the shale. Will need prep work to be exposed. I found this one at a collapsed cliff of shale at Mimico creek. I found some flexi's this summer at Mimico creek but usually whole specimens start crumbling apart the moment I try removing the matrix around the specimens.

  17. L.S., Last Sunday, I found the specimen shown below on a spoil tip in northern France (Westphalian C, Late Carboniferous). The three photographs were made under different lighting conditions, in an attempt to illustrate the small scale characters of the about 8 mm-long fossil. It appears to be an abdomen (opisthosoma), perhaps of a trigonotarbida spider or some other arthropod. However, since 'beasties' are definitely not my strongsuit, I would really appreciate your suggestions and help to get this little one identified properly. Thanks, Tim

    Bug wings

    I know figuring out the IDs of bug wings can be very difficult, but if anyone on here can help I'd greatly appreciate it! I've found these and some others (that I put somewhere I would definitely remember) near Humboldt, Nebraska in the Indian Cave sandstone member of the Towne Formation which puts their age late Pennsylvanian to early Permian. To be completely honest I've wondered if a couple of them might actually be leaf impressions, but I'll let y'all help me figure that out.

    Books Arthropods Canada

    Book Freebies for someone in Canada. Working my way through clutter. I've boxed up some publications on Trilobites and other arthropods...to give away. Some my doubles, others in 'ok' condition. Various ages. Set of journals on German Devonian/Carboniferous trilobites. Used but decent shape. Some notes in margins. No need to compensate me for postage but I ask that you make a equivalent donation of the postage to your local SPCA or Animal shelter. Likely about $30 postage. Note...I will send these as a group to someone with an 'expressed interes
