    Trilobite Genal Spine?

    I was able to get out and hunt a new Ordovician spot today. A full trip report is coming, but I’m too curious about this one to wait. In the field I grabbed this thinking it was a large trilobite genal spine. After getting it home and doing some quick cleaning and research, I am less convinced. I’m not even sure that any trilobite from this time period/formation would have spines this size (still researching). From a quick glance at a Kentucky Geological Map it looks like I was in the Grant Lake Limestone (Upper Ordovician). I’m probably way off base here. T
  2. I recently acquired some fossils that were said to have been from the Breathitt Formation of Leslie County, Kentucky. The majority of the specimens were smaller slabs of rock with fern/horsetail fossils (Neuropteris, Sphenopteris, Macroneruopteris, Alethopteris and Calamites). However, two of the specimens that i received were quite large and I am struggling to come up with an identification for them. Specimen #1 - The rounded fossil measures 27.5 cm (10.8 inches) wide and is 7 cm (2.8 inches) at its thickest point. (second specimen will be in second post due to

    Nautiloid ID

    Hello all, I found this nautiloid fragment in the Kope Formation out of the Cincinnatian series in Northern Kentucky. Suspecting this to either be an Endocerid due to the size or perhaps even a coiled nauitoid due to the curvature in the camerae towards the end with the siphuncle sticking out and the general shape of the specimen, unfortunately not preserving detail towards the other end. I was thinking it could be Characteroceras due to them being found in the Kope, but it seems to be too big. Seems like this guy died, sank to the bottom and preserved the side that planted in the

    Lonely Bivalve Steinkern

    I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have any idea what this bivalve steinkern may be? It was found in the Upper Ordovician (drakes formation) of Kentucky. Brachiopods are overly abundant in many of the areas that I hunt, but bivalves seem to be scarce, or I am too used to seeing brachs to pick out the bivalves. Anyway, this is the one and only bivalve that I have found, besides a few possible fragments. I know it can be near impossible to identify any steinkern, but does the shape, size, or provenance give anyone an idea as to what this may be? It just looks so lonely o

    Need Help Identifying Fossil

    Currently located in Fleming co. Kentucky. This area is known for its large limestone deposits and is very fossil-rich. I found this piece while walking along a small creek. I have been searching this creek for roughly 4 months and have found large quantities of Horn, stem/branch and brain coral with scattered amounts of cephalopods. This is the first time I have come across a piece like this in this creek and needed help identifying it as my other resources have turned up empty. The whole rock is 10cm/4 but the fossil is 5cm /2.25 inches. Any thoughts, comments, and ideas would be much apprec

    First of many

    This is one of many fossils I have that range from marine fossils of ordovician or silurian to plant fossils in paleolithic era. Some are likely common to those with much experience, but a few Ive not been able to see even one near the same. Any help or even a point to the right path is greatly appreciated. PS, these arent enough I know but Im limited by size & technical skill apparently.

    A Longer and Muddier Stop

    I took a much needed break this morning and went fossil hunting for a couple of hours. I decided that I wanted to go back to the same water eroded hill that I made a quick stop at the other day. It rained last night, so the place was a muddy mess, but I had a good time and it took my mind off of things. It's supposed to rain here for the next 2-3 days. Can't wait to see what else is revealed afterwards. I'll stop in again. Preferably after it dries out for a couple of days. Here are pictures of the hillside that I have been working. The red clay is littered with rocks and fossils

    A Quick Stop

    With all of the recent field trip reports being posted I have been that I haven't been able to get out there yet myself. The weather has been warmer than usual, but it’s also been rainy. Today I had very little time, but on my way home from giving my father-in-law a helping hand, I was able to make a quick stop at a local Mississippian site that is 5 minutes from my house. I believe it is St. Louis Limestone, but need to verify. I was only at the site for 20 minutes or so, but I picked up a handful of things. I didn’t get any pictures from the field as I was in a rush, but
  9. How’s everyone doing this evening! I had to replace my water main and after having it excavated I realized I might be on a goldmine of fossils, I’m new to this for the most part and trying to figure it all out. I believe I may even have some truly amazing. I believe a lot is coral, along with possible walnuts or something, and maybe some other beautiful fossils. I wanna get everyone’s opinion before I worry about that other thing so I don’t sound/look like a complete dummy. Also found several geodes and some agated coral geodes I believe. Thank you! these aren’t even close to a small portion o

  11. I though maybe the invert folks would get a kick out of these two limestone slabs. I picked them up several years ago when driving home from Kentucky along the AA highway. I cleaned them up a bit, but with the soda rig that @Gizmo loaned me. I don't really know what the critters are, but they look neat.
  12. Monday morning was dreary here in Central Kentucky. The sky was cloudy grey, and the rain was sputtering off and on. I didn't let that dampen my spirits though. I had planned to go fossil hunting and nothing was going to ruin my day! I grabbed my hunting gear, a cup of coffee, dropped my daughter off at daycare, and headed out. I arrived at the Upper Ordovician (Drakes Formation) spot that I had found this year. The last time I visited this place I didn't have time to really enjoy myself. It was more of a smash and grab. A rush to see if anything was actually there and to gr
  13. The KYANA Geological Society is hosting their annual mineral, gem, and fossil show next weekend (Nov. 22-24). I attended last year and it is a small, but fun event. I’m not sure which day I will be there, but I plan to take the family. Just passing along the information in case anyone is in the Louisville area and would like to attend. If you can’t make it, don’t worry, I will come back with a full trip report. http://www.kyanageo.org/showflier.htm
  14. This is an old article from August of 2018 regarding fossils found in the Louisville and surrounding areas. Not anything new, but I thought it was an interesting read from a newbies perspective. It could be informative for new fossil enthusiast in Louisville/Kentucky. https://www.louisville.com/content/fossils-under-our-feet
  15. Hi! I'm very new to fossil finding and lucked across some fossil-filled rocks in central Kentucky a few weeks ago. I found these rocks in the median of I-75 in Kentucky, just before exit 87 (south of Richmond KY), where they had eroded off a sheer rock face that had been blasted out decades ago to make way for the expressway. I'm not sure what kind of rock the shells are encased in, and the only tools i have at my disposal are not particularly well suited for the job (a generic 5/8" masonry chisel, a nail hammer, and a dremel with various carbide cutting bits). I'm working on getting some too

    Tristate Trilobite Hunt

    Hi all, This week I'm heading to the tristate area (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky) for a trilobite hunting trip. It's unusual for me insofar as it's being run by my university. Usually I do my own recon, but since I don't really know where I'll be going (I assume we'll be visiting fairly well known localities), I was wondering if ya'll could help me out. I'm trying to figure which sites are famous in the area, and which layers to look in at those sites etc. I'd appreciate any info or advice! I'll be sure to return the favor by posting a full trip report when I get back.

    Limpet looking fossil

    Hello everyone, requesting help with a fossil ID. New member and very new to fossils, daughter has shown lots of interest in fossils and wants to be a paleontologist for about a year. I try and continue to encourage it and we go to different creek beds here in Kentucky along the Tennessee boarder. We typically find lots of brachiopods but nothing like these. I think it looks like limpets, but I can’t find anything similar to it online. The University of Kentucky website had some similar sketches of horn coral, but I am not sure. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    fossilized hickory nut?

    I found this what I think to be a fossilized hickory nut that was partially eaten by some animal. I found it in northern Kentucky a couple miles from the Ohio river. If someone could help me out that would be great.
  22. If any one can or would answer a question for me. I am just curious if these trace fossils are of any value?. I will be honest this is something precious to me and my younger brother that found it. It's going to be in our family for many generations to come. This is special and priceless for many reading. The first being we found it on our family property that's been our family for generation. It was located at the very creek our 15 siblings and us have played in and spent all of our Sumner day's in since we was bigg enough to sit in water. This is a special place for our family.

    Good spots for finding fossils in Kentucky

    Okay so I am a noob basically in fossil hunting. I am more of a living animal guy but minerals and especially fossils are a side passion that I would absolutely love to get more into. I have my own mediocre collection. My proudest piece is a trilobite which I bought for $5. I can’t really afford to buy all my fossils plus finding them is always fun. I have a decent collection of corals. Anyways now that I got the background out of the way. I need advice on where to look in Ky. Mainly the Jackson Purchase area as that’s where I’m located and currently limited to. I find most of my corals at the
