    Calymene trilobite ID

    These are more trilobite segments, and one cephalon, from the Leighton Formation, Maine, silurian. I believe them to be the new species of Calymene trilobite that I found earlier, but am unsure. The first pictures are of the first specimen, numbers 1 and 2 being of the cephalon, and the third of a thorax segment that was underneath the cephalon (you can see the edges of it in picture 2): The next pictures are of new specimens. Number one and two are of a cephalon. Unfortunately, I was unaware of its existence until after it came out in multiple piece
  2. 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

    ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg
  4. I received some Waldron Shale trilos for prep today. As always I made a brief examination of the matrix in search of any other fossils. I came across these, that I think may be cross sections of bugs? I should clarify that I have 0 experience with such cross sections. If they were, I'd assume the smaller one is the standard C. breviceps but the larger is curious. It's about 1.75 in/4.5 cm across and appears to have tubercles. What do you guys think, am I way off base or have I found something interesting?
  5. Greetings everybody! While I was on my fishing trip last weekend I took some time to look for fossils. I collected at a couple of creeks exposing the Middle Ordovician Trenton Group in North-Central NY. I found lots of trilo-bits and other goodies! Enjoy
  6. I found these 2 specimens (molds unprepped) of the trilobite Calymene celebra, the official Wisconsin state fossil, in the Silurian of Wisconsin.

    Help with some trilobite IDs

    Hi. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify these trilobites. Thanks for your help. The first two are Moroccan trilobites. I think they belong to the genus Calymene, but I am not sure. I have an ID card that says they are from the Ktaoua Group, Anti-Atlas Region, Morocco, Upper Ordovician. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks. This is another trilobite from Morocco. I think it is Proteus sp., but would like confirmation. My ID card says its from Ofaten, Morocco and is Middle Devonian in age. Is it correct? Last, I have some trilobite

    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

    Local trip

    This morning I made a trip to a local spot. Wenlockian. Gravicalymene celebra, measures 4cm This one was difficult to work with, as dolostone always is. Ommokris obex cephalon, which turned out to be partial, and a small ventral calymene. The arrow points to the tongue-like protuberance which I was able to extract in one piece and glue back on, giving this trilobite a gargoylesque appearance. And last but not least, a mystery find...
  13. I recently found a nice Calymene tuberculata trilobite on my vacation to Gotland. I’m currently in the process of preparing it and wonder what coating I should use? Is it possible to give it a slightly wet look while not making it look glossy and artificial? I’m considering some kind of vax-based product. Any tips?

    Huge calymenid cephalon!

    I've been finding some very large calymenid cephala from my usual Liston Creek limestone spot. Today, i found the biggest one I've ever seen. Ive also noticed the rostrum is elongated in many of the ones ive found lately. They look quite a bit different from the calymenids I usually find at this spot. I need some help with the ID since I havent seen any like this before.

    Calymene trilobite

    I think this is, or WAS a Calymene trilobite. Damaged due to bad prep & poor workmanship. A few grooves on the back that shouldn't be there & I think some of it is missing, but it was cheap. No idea where it came from exactly. Cheap labor equals cheap fossils I guess.
  16. So I bought a Trilobite Fossil a few years ago in a museum. But it's gathering some rust. Is this bad? If so what should I do about it?
  17. It was 50 degrees on Sunday so I decided to get out to the Silurian Sugar Run formation to look for some trilobites. I checked out some out small outcrops that I've never investigated before, but no luck. It was starting to get late so went to an old spot that I haven't been to in a long time. The rocks in this formation are very difficult to break open and generally need a sledge hammer, so the best method is to look for "promising-looking" rocks and bring them home to break open. This is what I found: Tiny Calymene Gravicalymene celebra

    New York Trilobites

    I was just curious as to if anyone knows how to get in touch with someone about possibly being able to dig at Walcott as a guest, as it’s a private quarry, or if someone else knows where to find the gold bugs with appendages. I am hoping someone can point me to where there is isotelus or Ceraurus as it’s my favorite Trilos. Any help is appreciated. Even if you know a guy that knows a guy that knows a worker there lol. Thank you, and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Moroccan Calymene/Flexicalymene doubt

    Are Calymene (those putative specimens from the pictures, existing by thousands at quarry's), a described genera to Morocco or in fact what we got are Flexicalymene. And what species are they? Thanks in advance for your help. Miguel

    More of a reccy really

    As the title says, more of a reccy for later in the year when I hope to meet Nick @Barerootbonsai again for a hunt. I went away to shoot several images for a cd cover/book for a quirky band http://ironbootscrapers.com/ using one of the Victorian methods of photography I practice. On the journey back back I decided to spend an hour at Wren's Nest in Dudley, West Midlands, UK https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wren's_Nest Wren's Nest is a productive Silurian site, particularly for corals such as favosites and rugosa. Here's a fine looking chap at th
  22. Hello forum! So about a week ago, a couple friends and I went out to the Mazonia-Braidwood Fish and Wildlife Area in Illinois to do some amateur fossil hunting (first time for all of us). I was so excited when, at our first site, I found a pair of trilobites on the same rock and a few feet away there was the top half of the rock with their impressions. First of all, I love trilobites. I'm currently reading the book by Richard Fortey, Trilobite: Eyewitness to Evolution, and I hope to be able to study them somewhere along in my educational career. So far, I've identified these little guys as

    Slab O Calymene

    Last summer my father spotted a slab of Calymene celebra from Grafton, IL Milwaukee, WI in a small shop in a small town in Northern Minnesota. A while later I went to the shop and took a look at it. After a bit of discussion we purchased the slab with the intention to prep it a little better. In the store, the slab had 11 trilobites exposed. There looked to be quite a bit of matrix that could be chiseled down and there was a possibility of exposing more trilobites. My father started chiseling away excess matrix in search for more bugs, and more bugs were found. The total as of right no
