    Help with ?Fossil Identification

    Hello All! My husband and I are building a home in Central Kentucky (Frankfort) and have been finding a plethora of agate, jasper and geodes. I found some odd looking "rock" that I was puzzled about. It looks a lot like a scapula maybe, is very porous looking under the microscope and is very heavy. When I put my tongue to it, it sticks. The specimen is about 5 inches by 3 inches. Here are the photos: I would greatly appreciate any input anyone has for me. Thank you, Annette
  2. Hello All, I was able to scrounge up a few hours of free time a couple of days ago. I decided to head towards the Bardstown Kentucky area to scout out a couple of spots I had on my list of possible collecting sites. The first 4 stops proved to be fossil barren. Feeling a little bummed I decided to get some lunch and regroup. After the quick bite to eat, I realized I was running out of time, but I figured I had enough for one more stop. I headed to a road cut that exposed Ordovician rock. More specifically the Drakes Formation. I'm not sure which Member of the Drakes Formation yet. Still w

    Gastropod?

    I realize that this is very weathered and would be extremely difficult (and most likely impossible) to put any sort of specific ID on, but I was wondering if anyone thought it might be a gastropod? What is left of one anyway. I picked up the rock because it has a couple of brachiopods on the other side, and only noticed this after I got it home for a closer look. It’s Ordovician from the Drakes Formation near Bardstown Kentucky. Sorry for the lack of scale, but it’s about 1 inch (2.54cm) across.
  4. sLast weekend I took a four day trip to Kentucky to see family; parents, sister, brother-in-law, and nephew. While there arranged to get together with Herb from the Forum to collect Mississippian Age fossils which I hadn't done before. There are no fossiliferous Mississippian Age deposits in New York and the nearest are in Western Pennsylvania hours away, so this looked like a good opportunity to add some marine fossils from that age to my collection. Fortunately where my family lives is in an area of marine Mississippian deposits. On the way to our rendezvous with Herb in E-Town (Elizabethto

    Unknown Kentucky Coral. Ordovician?

    I have this coral and I *think* it came from a batch of material from the Bardstown locality in Kentucky. I think it's Ordovician. It is a ball shape and one side shows a lot more detail than the other. Does anyone know what species this is?
  6. Here is a piece of shale(?) that I believe is from a locality near Bardstown Kentucky and either Devonian or Ordovician deposits. There is nifty-looking trilobite with detailed eyes popping out of the rock matrix. Can anyone verify what type/species of trilobite this is? Thanks!

    Does anyone know what this is?

    Does anyone know what this is? I'll send some info with this post. It looks like an animal as well as a bone. found on a shore of Kentucky Lake It looks like a rodent fossil It looks as if it had an eye socket as well as a body and head. Here are some pics (There's more soon)

    Trilobite Pygdium ID Help

    I've been racking my brain trying to identify these trilobite pygidium. Its my understanding that these all came from a quarry in the Bardstown KY, USA area. Its also my understanding that the site has New Albany Shale and Beechwood Limestone which are members of the Sellersburg Limestone Formation and is Devonian in age. These don't look like anything that I know of that has been found in the area/age of rock. To me they look more like Griffithides Bufo , but that trilobite is found in Mississippian age rock. Any input would be welcome! Far Left: Mi
  9. I found this fossil a couple of years ago while collecting in the Bardstown,. KY area with TFF member Herb. The bedrock was Devonian, I believe Sellersburg Limestone, Beechwood Member. The specimen is just under an inch and a half long. It appears to be some type of crinoid-arms/stem pieces. I am in the process of organizing my specimens and having this properly labeled would great. Any help with the ID would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Fossil ID Mammoth Molar Fragment

    I found and odd rock that from what I see online seems similar to a mammoth Molar perhaps. Or maybe I just want it to be lol. Either way would appreciate any help identifying it or just telling me I found a rock.
  11. I just found the site. I collected as a child but don't know where. I now have a son that is extremely interested in fossils and dinosaurs and want to take him to find fossils the way I did. Can anyone tell me a place where we can legally hunt for them? (In or around Louisville area) I'm open to a guide, if you don't mind being asked every question his inquisitive mind has. I want to share my memory while encouraging his passion. Thank you for any and all help. It's greatly appreciated.

    Kentuckian fossils that sorta resemble teeth?

    I found three of these fossils in a small area at my local creek where I collect fossils. Two of them were found by themselves but one of them is still inside the matrix accompanied by bryozoans and crinoid segments. I have no idea what they are or could be but they resemble teeth. They were found in Crittenden County Kentucky if that helps any.

    Tabulate Coral, Ordovician?

    I scored a couple of big chunks of fossilized coral, and I am curious to learn more about it. It appears to be some form of tabulate coral and I think it comes from Ordovician deposits in Kentucky. That's about all I know about it. Does anyone know what species this is, or if the Ordovician age range is correct? Would something like this be found in or around Bardstown Kentucky? Thanks in advance for any help!

    Silicified crinoid

    I believe i know what this is, though not the species. But it is unusual enough for me to think others might like to see it. It is a silicified crinoid column found in a road cut near wax,ky. I was looking for blastoids, but was very happy finding this.

    Possible Huge Bryozoan/Anthozoan

    Hello all! I was hunting for fossils in Owingsville, KY on a road cut that contains the Drakes Formation (Late Ordovician). Plenty of brachiopods, small bryozoans, cephalopods and other common Ordovician fossils found. I happened upon this piece, at first just thinking it was geologic with some bryozoan encrusting/deposited within the rock. I almost left it behind but couldn't help but wonder if it was all one piece and that it may truly be an example of large bryozoan or coral. I was curious as to what you all think, whether it be one of the two, mostly geologic or what have you.

    Orthocone find

    Wanted to take advantage of the good weather and went to the creek on my farm to see if I could find anything good. The creek is located on a farm in Northern Kentucky, located in a small valley amongst the hills. As soon as I reached the creek and knelt down, I spotted this beautiful specimen and instantly recognized the shape and tapering. I can’t find any septa on it though. I find an abundance of bryozoans, brachiopods and crinoid stems. Few weeks ago, found a fragment of orthocone and had it verified on here. This is only my second and so are pretty rare on our land.

    Creek bed fossil

    I found this fossil a few weeks ago. It was in a creek bed that flows during the wet season but has pools in the dry. I know the creek has sandstone, but it also looks like it has limestone and possibly slate. There is also a lot of rocks containing rust. This fossil appears to be stained with it. I am located in Western Kentucky near Hopkinsville. One side looks like it is ribs. The other side is smooth and one part is unusually round. There are pockets that appear to be filled with sediment that has solidified into rock. I've added pictures from all sides and others

    Kentucky Teeth Fossils

    Can anyone help me identify all these fossilized teeth and other fossils I have?
  19. Hey! I was looking for native artifacts in a neighbourhood creek when I came across what I thought was a somewhat large cephalopod fossil. The creek is in Louisville Kentucky, leading to Floyd’s Fork. From the USGS Mapview, it looks like it’s Ordovician of the Drake’s formation. Either Bardstown member or Saluda Dolomite member. Upon further examination, I saw that the ridges on the sides were angled very steeply. It was very covered by matrix, so I decided to get to work on it with a dremel tool. After getting a significant amount of material off the fossil, I found that the ri

  24. Hello, I am brand new to the forum - I hunt for fossils often, but I am completely stumped here! I found this a few years ago in Slade, KY - inside of the Red River Gorge - in the Red River. I think it looks like a giant centipede, with some sort of antennae at the top, but one experienced fossil friend thinks it might be a cycad cross section. I see legs, a critter.. but he sees a plant. Hopefully one of you experts here can solve this mystery!

    Something coiled

    Is this an ammonite? It's not exactly round, and I don't know if an ammonite would compress like this. It would be cool if my daughter had found one, though!
