    Silurian or Devonian

    Hello guys! Please assist for dating of such rocks. I suspect it is Silurian, but it could be also later Devonian. I find plenty of these here like pieces of rocks. Gray-blue - in color, very hard. It is lile a cement, but harder than cement. And it has lot of organic materials inside - mostli marine plants or animal. The diameter of the stems is 3-4 cm and more. N.1 N.2 N.3 N.4 N.5 N.6 N.7 N.8 N.9 N.10 - here we see som
  2. I would like to use photographs of fossils as part of my digital artwork. I do not want to violate any copyright laws if I later sell the artwork. Does anyone know where I can find free-use images of fossils or does anyone mind sharing their personal fossil photographs with me? I will give credit to you for your photography if I decide to use the images in my work. Fossils of any type and from any time period are appreciated. Thank you!
  3. I starting photographing some of the micro shark remains we’ve found in our matrix searches. I’m taking a break from fossils for awhile and from TFF so I wanted to get some of these posted. The ID’s are educated guesses based on publications I’ve read. I’m open to other suggestions. This originally started as a way to add some Devonian shark material but has really been a fantastic learning experience too. We’ve added some fossils to the collection for sure and some hard to find early shark genera. The knowledge gained is the big thing and it has been super fun. Few c

    Devonian bone bit - fish tooth?

    This little bone chip is from the Dundee Limestone (Middle Devonian) of Ohio. I find a lot of bone fragments in these rocks, but this one seems different. In particular, along one edge there look like there might be serrations, so maybe a tooth fragment? It measures approximately 1cm at the largest dimension. Thanks for any input.
  5. I would like help identifying these fossils, all found at Beltzville State Park.

    From the album: Middle Devonian

  8. Hello everyone, I am looking to get some more definitive IDs for these finds from the Lower Devonian Kalkberg Formation in NY. I have some idea for what these guys might be but I would like to see other opinions from the forum before I start labeling them. I will post more brachiopods as I take and process pictures, but here are the first few: 1. I believe these are three might be Rhipidomella
  9. I will trade these fossils for one well preserved European goniatite or European triassic ammonite (specimen with 5 to 8 cm preferentially) because that kind of specimen is lack in my teaching collection. Note the Anorthopygus orbicularis is not a common species and, apart the incomplete test, has an exceptional detailed preservation, rarely seen. Best regards, Ricardo Traded
  10. 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

    Devonian Fossil?

    I found this fossil??? on the Creek Trail at World’s End State Park in northern Pennsylvania. They are 3” and 2” in length. It doesn’t seem to fit with the other Devonian fossils I found. Were there plants at that time? Also does anyone know what type of rock this is? Have I been fooled and it’s just marks from chisels? There is also one very similar to this in the small museum in that area. I think it was a scout project and labeled “Unidentified”
  12. I found this specimen in the Silica Shale (Middle Devonian) of Ohio this past weekend. It measures approximately 2cm at the widest point. I have not come across anything like it before. I'm getting a fish vibe but I'm not certain. Any thoughts? Front Back
  13. I think the first post I made here was about Partridge Point. I'm still not a fossil expert, but I thought this video I made might be useful for someone thinking about visiting this spot. It gives a good idea of the types of fossils that you can find. Maybe someone can help me identify a couple things I wasn't sure about.

    A lucky Devonian find

    This past weekend I was able to hunt in the Middle Devonian Silica Shale in Ohio for a couple of hours. I found a lot of great things, but I think this took the cake for me. It was my first good find of the day, and the only specimen I've found in 5+ trips to this site. I don't have my Silica Shale book with me right now, but I believe it to be Hyperoblastus reimanni. In situ Cleaned up
  15. Atactotoechus fruticosus (Bryozoa) Kashong member, Moscow formation, Middle Devonian, New York Found 4/09/2021. Size - 6"x 4.2" This turned out better than I thought it would. When I find these bryozoa colonies, I have no idea how complete they are or what they will look like until I start piecing them back together. This colony is missing some pieces but a lot of it was saved from erosion/oblivion. The base of the colony was uneven so I used some modeling clay to help display it in its upright position. The last photo was my attempt to bring the colony

    Placoderm Thoracic Plate?

    My first question as a new member to the forum. Are these two placoderm plates? The serrated edge caught my attention, as well as the hard, bone like feel and color to the fossil. They are very different from the brachiopods, coral, or other Devonian fossils I have found. This came from the Deer Lake area north of Cabelas as was suggested by another fossil forum member.

    Collection

    Hi all, after seeing all these nice collections from other members I also want to share the collection of my father and I with you. The collections is of various time periods and sites. We started collecting in 2009 close to home in a quarry nearby Maastricht called 't Rooth (sadly this quarry is close for visitors since 2016). From there on we started visiting other quarries and the collection started too grew massively. We frequently visited the ENCI, Winterswijk and Solnhofen. I will start off with some of the display cabinets

    Devonian, Carboniferous, quartz, limestone

    I have this big and heavy chunk of rock, found lying on the riverbed of lots of loose rocks, with almost every rock having some sort of fossil in them. My rock stands out from the general rock population. It has lots of quartz, some kind of shells, yellow sand in holes and crevises, and some articulated small bone looking things. At close look you see interesting textures. At first I imagined I was seeing some starfish and coral, but I can't make it out. I am a total amateur with just a pile of books and the internet. Anyone?
  21. I just took my Phyllocarids out of storage and put them back on display in the collection room. All of these extinct crustaceans were found in New York State. Two of the specimens have their complete mandibles (jaws) and all three Devonian Phyllocarids have their telsons (tails). The Silurian Phyllocarid from the Pittsford Black Shale is extremely rare. These are rare fossils and complete specimens are absent in most collections. They have been in boxes for a few years now and it didnt feel right keeping them in the dark. Most people that view my collection don't understand or find them intere

    Marine ID help

    Hey everyone so I have recently been fossicking around Yass, NSW, Australia and have come across a seemingly common formation in the devonian group both in limestone and just shale and mustone, It occurs alongside corals and bivalves (in that case i'm assuming it's marine)and is sometimes in large colonies such as the ones pictured, as well as independednt from one another. Does anyone have any ideas as wo what this may be. Thanks in advanced
  23. Phyllocarid Collecting trip 4/9/2021 Devonian N.Y. A beautiful Echinocaris punctata (Hall) with mandibles and antenna. This is as found unprepped and awesome. You can see the complete mandibles under the carapace, attached pyritized brachiopods, and a first for me, pyritized antenna. Happy collecting!
  24. Hello everyone, Some time ago I was talking about a gastropod fossil with an individual online who thought that it was an ammonite, During this conversation one thing was brought up that I have wondered about for a long time but have not actually been able to answer, and that is what exactly do we consider an ammonite? I have always thought that ammonites are the cephalopods with an external shell containing complex sutures which occur throughout the Mesozoic, but people have pointed out that certain sites talk about ammonites going back to the Devonian. I have always thought t
  25. Several days ago I ventured to a Devonian desert locality near Superior, Arizona. I found the largest fossilized coral colony that I have ever found: 2 ft across. A giant Iowaphyllum nisbeti coral was covered over it’s entire length with several inches of a stromatoporoid sponge. I should have taken a photo, but it was not very photogenic; it looked like a white ledge in cross section. First photo is a piece of light colored Iowaphyllum nisbeti coral covered with a medium gray calcitic stromatoporoid coral that is about 8 inches across. The top of the coral is pointed up.
