    9 Possible Fossils?

    More Lake Michigan - Long Beach, IN finds. #1 - just a rock? #3,5 - horn corals? #4 - favosite? #8,9 - more coral? Sorry about the photo quality/quarter as a size reference. It was the best I could do for now. Thanks for your input

    What's this?

    I found this on the shore of Lake Michigan in Long Beach, Indiana– just south of the Michigan border. I have no clue what I am looking at. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

    What might this be?

    I found these near Indian Creek in Springville, Indiana. I thought the heart shaped one might be a clam type of fossil, but I'm really new to all of this.
  4. Rubykicks

    What kind of fossil is this?

    This was another find from the Bloomington area. It was in the woods a little ways from Indian creek and was covered in moss. I thought it was a geode, but I was soaking it to break down the rock and I realized it was a fossil. Coral of some kind?

    Stigmaria?

    I finally took a picture of this beauty. I believe it is stigmaria, but please correct if I'm wrong! I also have other pieces I'm unsure of and would love feedback from anyone with the time. The first 3 pictures are the same rock Picture 4-6 are the the same Picture 7 and 8 are the same And then the rest are the same.
  6. Last summer I posted a trip report about finding some Pennsylvanian black shale in a river bed in East Central Illinois http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/106753-628-illinois-black-shale-trip-w-listracanthus/. I was able to visit the site again once more in the fall last year when the river was running much lower and collect more and larger pieces of the finely bedded and fissile shale. Since then I have been slowly splitting and going through the rocks I brought home, and finding many interesting fish parts- that is definitely the dominant fauna presen

    Fossil tooth ID

    The other day I found this fossil and I am really wondering what it is, It is about half an inch long. If you need better pictures I may be able to post some more.

    Petrified wood??

    I was creek walking today and found this 15 lb piece of petrified wood. I looked up similar sized pieces but I feel like this may be "extra cool"? I don't know much about fossils but I have a passion for wood formations and this seems to be a knot from the tree with the burl or tumor in tact on the back side. My question is if it were to be sliced would it be more valuable because of the natural swirling of the burl? Or is this even a cool find at all? I'm new here guys haha! Thanks in advance for any input or comments!
  9. After dropping my wife off in Georgia for a couple months, I decided to make a quick stop at a favorite spot of mine in Lawrenceburg, Indiana and do a little Ordovician collecting. I did not collect much on this visit, but kept a couple of the pieces that are shown below, it was just nice to be outside without a coat and to feel the 67 degree temp. Pictures of the area-

    Fossil?

    Hi there. I posted this a while back thinking it was maybe a turtle egg or something of that sort as it was more globular, but flat on the bottom. As it was thought to be a rock, I have had it in my tumbler, and while it hasn't changed much, it's definitely taken on a more distinct look. I have adjusted the lights and darks in the picture to make it easier to see. Any information would be fantastic.
  11. Today on my way back home I spent a couple hours collecting on the mile long Ordovician roadcut of St. Leon, Indiana. I believe this roadcut exposes the portions of the Saluda and Lower Whitewater formations as well as the entire Liberty and Waynesville formations. No matter how many people collect at this site, there are always fossils to be found. Here are some pictures of the area.
  12. Hello, I am hoping that someone can please help me identify the four species of crinoids on the attached plate? I have numbered them for reference and show close-ups. Thank you in advance!

    Indiana Ordovician Bivalve ID

    Over the weekend I found this bivalve while collecting at the St. Leon, Indiana roadcut. I posted it in the Hunting Trip section, but received no ID on this piece, so I figured that I would put it here to see if some Member could give me an ID. I have never found one like this before nor can I find a similar one while checking various web pages. Thanks

    Bat skull?

    I found this one in indiana. I've only recently cleaned it up and noticed it had a hole that went all the way through and after looking closer I believe it's a tiny skeleton, possibly a bar or mouse. I got a couple of pictures of what may be a brain stem or something, but I'm not sure. This is pretty tiny. The entire thing is about a quarter of an inch?

    Reptile heads or rocks?

    So over the last few years I've collected different rocks, fossils, and anything else I find that i think is unique. Eventually, I go through them and have a closer look. I'm sure my eyes are making things up, but, hey, why go om wondering when I can just ask?? I have some rocks here some found in Indiana and some in Ohio and I'm wondering if they are reptile heads of some sort(I'm assuming that's a thing people actually find lol) If you tell me they are rocks, I will believe they are rocks and will appreciate the knowledge. Thank you in advance! You guys rock(yes, pun intended)! Oh, and the
  17. I graduated college back in May, and since my graduate program did not start until September, I was fortunate to have quite a bit of time this summer to explore further away from home. I've been slowly prepping and cataloging over the past couple months, and figured I would share some of my favorite finds that I haven't shared yet. First up is dump piles of Silica Shale (Middle Devonian) in Paulding, OH. My university was not far from here, so this is really where I started fossil hunting. I've been here quite a few times, so most of what I found I already had in
  18. I tried to post this last night, but my phone was not cooperating. Yesterday was a hot day and I spent about 9 hours outside collecting and going through a lot of water. I first stop and my first location on Monday located in Wilder, Kentucky. This site is very productive and I wanted to stop back and check out another portion of it. Here is a picture of the location- Here are some of my finds- Cryptolithus tessellatus- Flexicalymene meeki- Flexi / Crypto and Isotelus Parts-
  19. Here are some finds from a late August to early September long loop road trip, fossil hunting through Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Kentucky. I'll appreciate detailed specimen identification help. First photo shows brachiopods & a trilobite from the Devonian Silica Shale Formation near Sylvania, northwestern Ohio.

    Back to the Ohio Valley

    Hi Everyone, I took a 2 week trip to the Ohio Valley, arriving back in New York about a week ago. It was primarily a family visit since many of my relatives now reside in the Elizabethtown, KY area. However, the Ohio Valley, as some of you know, is very rich in Paleozoic fossils and I just had to make a few stops on my way there and back as well as between family engagements. I will try to share enough to give you all a gist of it: It was a long day's drive from the northern suburbs of New York City to Richmond, Indiana where I spent the first night. The next day I was headed down State R
  21. I recently found several fossil plant impressions inside nodules from Indiana coal mine spoil dumps. It is Pennsylvanian age approximately 300 mya. Please help identify the specimens to genus, and species if possible. Thanks!
  22. For an extreme example of a wayward marine mammal, look at the below open access paper. Valenzuela-Toro, A.M., Zicos, M.H. and Pyenson, N.D., 2020. Extreme dispersal or human-transport? The enigmatic case of an extralimital freshwater occurrence of a Southern elephant seal from Indiana. PeerJ, 8, p.e9665 Yours, Paul H.
  23. Many roots of the Lepidodendron have been found here cast in fine grained, very hard sandstone. One specimen of bark has been found that is in a repetitive diamond pattern reminiscent of scales on a tropical palm type tree. Another one off specimen is of the interior trunk or wood of the tree--(presumably). All of these specimens are the same type of sandstone. This is definitely Lepidodendron country as no other fossils have been found here to date. Pics of individual specimens will be gladly posted upon request.

    Indiana Brachiopod ID

    Here's a sweet Brachiopod I found yesterday, it's quite interesting and I've only found one other like it, I am unfamiliar with the specific species but I am very interested if anyone could tell me more about it!
  25. I found these several geodized Mississippian marine fossils in southern Indiana. They may not all be hollow with quartz crystals inside, but many are. The fossils usually balloon in size in the geode-forming process. Here's 2 sides of a crinoid calyx...
