  1. 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
  2. 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

    Devonian fieldtrip with a view

    Last Saturday we went on a new fieldtrip on one of our favorite hunting spots for Devonian fossils. Not a lot of fossils were found and the only large goniatite, although pretty at first sight turned out to be a nightmare to prep with little to no preservation further down in the nodule. On the other hand we had verry sunny day with nice views over the area and the first flowers taking advantage of the sunlight on the older scree piles. We also brought home a few small nodules with tornoceras fossils , they will take a while to prepp before we will see if they were worthwhile.

    double goniatite fun

    It has been a while since I've found a decent sized goniatite on my favorite huntingspot, since the good deposits are no longer accesible. But recently I did find a specimen in a recent buldozer track. sadly the specimen has taken a hit from the vehicle moving over it. The extra bonus on the other hand was that there was a 2nd specimen right next to the 1st one. I've rarely seen 2 Manticoceras sp. from this size on the same matrix, so I was very happy with this one On top of that the preparation went realy smooth
  5. Here are two upper Carboniferous Gastrioceras listeri Goniatites from the Lancashire coalfield (UK) which I have in my collection. I would be very interested to see other people’s Carboniferous Goniatites. Thanks, Daniel

    ID of goniatites / ammonoids

    The Namurian cyclothems in West Clare, Ireland originate in an environment of delta systems which deposited sediments in an offshore basin (Clare Basin) and are referred to as the Central Clare Group. There are five cyclothems comprising marine bands (conventionally considered to form the ‘base’ of each cyclothem) and upwards coarsening fine-grained and sandstone sediments. The five cyclothems are named (from oldest to youngest): Tullig, Kilkee, Doonlicky, Cyclothem IV, and Cyclothem V. The marine bands contain - among other fossils - index fossils in the form of ammonoids (goniati

    Devonian cephalopod prepwork

    I have acces to a more powerfull compressor since last week, so the past few days we have been quite bussy prepping lots of fossils. Those are some of my late devonian fossils I have prepped, this is my favorite one to start with, not only does it have 2 cinds of goniatites but I found it at adifferent location than the one I usualy prospect. Manticoseras sp and Tornoceras sp. Late Devonian ( Frasnian ) Nismes ( Belgium The next pictures ar all from my usual location near Chimay ( Belgium) (can you spot the int
  8. I found these Goniatites in the British coal measures. Would anyone like to prepare these for me in return for some fossils? I have many fossil types available. Please note, the inner whorls of these Goniatites are almost impossible to prep, so it would be best just to expose the outer whorl. I am not sure how well these will prep, but I have decided it’s worth a try to see how they will turn out. Thanks, Daniel
  9. This saturday Natalie and I went on a fossil hunting trip to my favorite huntingspot in the hope to find a few devonian cephalopods. The weather conditions were cold but sunny to cloudy and the rain of the last week removed the dust from the rocks (although making the place muddy ) Not a lot had changed since our last visit, no expansion in the quarry or new scree piles so it didn't look verry prommising. But with a little perseverence we did get our haul of goniatites and orthocones. most came from the upper parts of the quarry so the were a bit wethered, although Natalie foun

    Into the Devonian reefs

    Last weekend we went to a fieldtrip with the BVP ( Belgian Associaton for Paleontology ) to my favorite quarry We had the opportunity again to prospect the frasnian deposits around this fossil reef. There hasn’t been a lot of activity in the quarry since last time, so the finds were less frequent than normal, but we still did find a decent haul of fossils, mainly cephalopods. The great weather conditions and the good company made this a very fine fieldtrip and ended with a visit to a local tavern for a few refreshments. (pictures by anthonie Hellemond (c) )

    Goniatites sp. (Haan 1825)

    From the album: Slices

    14x6cm. From Winterberg quarry near Bad Grund in Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany. The stratigraphy is interesting. Although the micrite sediments in which they and other fauna were found are early carbiniferous, they were deposited in a tectonic fissure within the local devonian reef limestone, which made for a bit of riddle work when they were first discovered.

    Goniatites sp. (Haan 1825)

    From the album: Slices

    6x5cm. Slices at two different angles. From Winterberg quarry near Bad Grund in Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany. The stratigraphy is interesting. Although the micrite sediments in which they and other fauna were found are early carbiniferous, they were deposited in a tectonic fissure within the local devonian reef limestone, which made for a bit of riddle work when they were first discovered.

    4cm. A slice through the middle of a goniatite from Winterberg quarry near Bad Grund in Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany. The stratigraphy is interesting. Although the micrite sediments in which they and other fauna were found are early carbiniferous, they were deposited in a tectonic fissure within the local devonian reef limestone, which made for a bit of riddle work when they were first discovered. Below is another one of them.
  14. It has been a while since we went to my favorite hunting spot near Chimay in Belgium, so I was realy eager to go back when we got there we had a little surprise, the whole back of the quarry was transformed in a motor cicle trail, apparantly this sunday there wil be a race and a lot of the bikers were prospecting the trail on foot in preparation of the race. luckily this didnt hinder us on our search, and this opend even opportunities since they dug through some of the stoone piles to make the trail thus revieling new material to go through, although we were careful no
  15. Day Two ; Locality One (or Six if you include Day One) Black Sahara, South of Erfoud 20th February 2019 Well this is where things really get interesting, so stick with this thread as there are dozens of photos of fossils coming up. Looks at the tags if you want clues. I was up bright and early and wandered out at about 7 am to watch the sun rise over the still mighty Erg Chebbi dunes. And as night's candles were burnt out and jocund day stood tiptoe over the misty duney tops, the chaps came to join me and managed lots of photos. Here's one, if you w
  16. Today we had a field trip with the "Lithos" geology club at my favorite hunting spot. Although the day started with freezing temperatures, the sun quickly rose the temperatures during t morning and gave us a beautiful day. the last time I visited the quarry the finds were disapointing due to the lack of activity in the quarry, but today we were lucky and the past week a new acces road was being dug to the side of the quarry, straight through the Matagne slate. It didnt take long before I found my first fossils, at first a few halve goniatites, but after a while a

    Goniatite ID

    I found these two when I was a child in Orange County, NY. Does anyone have an ID? From what I can tell, they're Goniatites. I can post more pictures if these aren't clear enough. Thanks! Here are the pictures. For some reason, it's not letting me upload them here. https://imgur.com/a/tRRAfi1#BtnFMPp
  20. Last saturday my girlfriend and I went back to the south of Belgium to go hunt for my favorite fossils. On the way there we saw a new road under construction where cretaceous chalk was visible. We made a quick stop to chek it out, but we only found 2 bellemnite fragments. So we hit the road again to the devonian rocks. The weather was quite good for this time of the year, so it was no suprise to see some fellow fossil and mineral hunters on the site. Some new heaps on the side of the field got my attention. Here I made my first good find of the day. A goniat

    From the album: MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Goniatites Fossil SITE LOCATION: Morocco TIME PERIOD: Middle Devonian to Permian - (390-139 million years ago) Data: Goniatids, informally Goniatites, are ammonoid cephalopods that form the Order Goniatiida, derived from the more primitive Anarcestida during the Middle Devonian some 390 million years ago. Goniatites (goniatitida) survived the Late Devonian extinction to flourish during the Carboniferous and Permian only to become extinct at the end of the Permian some 139 million years later. All goniatites possessed an external shell, which is divided internally into chambers
