  1. Hello everyone! Last summer when going on a trip to PA I stopped by a site where some Mahantango formation material was found, The finds weren't anything too spectacular or plentiful but it was still a nice place to stop by. While there I picked up quite a few concretions just to see if anything is in them, and for a few months they stayed outside to weather and break down a bit. Most of them were completely devoid of anything but one did reveal this interesting little fossil. The whole thing is about 2 cm long and 2mm in width, it has some neat branching to it.
  2. Inspired by a post last week by @I_gotta_rock, I decided to take a bit of an impromptu trek out to Centralia to add some of the famous white fern plates of the Lewellyn formation to my collection. I say impromptu because I was told I needed some pretty good rock climbing gear to be safe at the site, I ordered some pretty nice rock climbing gear too, still decided to go take a peek before everything arrived leading to one heck of an adventure that still has me smiling from ear to ear. We got our stuff ready to head out bright and early when I immediately hit my first snag, last wee

    Unknown something

    Really not sure what I have here, it definitely stands out from the surrounding matrix. I found this chunk at the Rockville Quarry site north of Harrisburg PA. There are some brachiopods in the surrounding matrix.
  4. Hello everyone, These were all found in St. Claire, PA. Mahantango Formation. Anybody know what these are? #1. Looks like octopus suckers in brown outline. Is it a coral? #2. Crinoid star stems? #3. Cylindrical molds, what are these?
  5. FossilizedJello

    Mahantango formation clam or armored fish?

    Could it be Zascinaspis heensi or just a clam?

    Gastropod or something similar?

    Hey again, this is a very tiny ~.5cm shell that I found some time ago at the regular road cut at the Lost River exposure of the Mahantango Formation. I would guess it’s a Gastropod or something similar but if it could be narrowed down any further I would be elated. Thanks guys!

    Devonian Marine Plant/ Bryozoan?

    Found at the Lost River roadcut site, never found anything like it since. My initial assumption was that I’d found a marine plant, but the world of fossils is a broad and mysterious place, so I wanted to know what you guys think. Let me know if you need anymore info, and thanks!

    Mystery Fossil from the Lost River - no idea!

    Here with another fossil, and I’m pretty sure this time it’s actually a fossil Distinct striations on a smooth impression in the shale. Just half an inch longways and about .4 inches tall. Found at the regular Lost River cut, Middle Devonian age. Thanks guys!

    Possible fish scale from the Lost River?

    First post, long lurker! I found this fossil a while back at the well known Lost River outcrop on old Route 55 near Wardensville. It’s about an inch tall and across, and has an intricate, almost web-like pattern when you look close enough (my camera has a hard time picking it up!) I thought it may have been some kind of coral or bryozoan - but someone mentioned it may be a Hyneria scale or scale of some similar fashion, and that I should ask here. Any ideas guys? Thanks!

    Another Lost River Mystery Fossil

    This one is very strange guys. I was cleaning my fossils off and had noticed this strange shape - I thought it was dirt until it didn’t wash off. I found this in the Middle-Devonian aged Lost River roadcut near Wardensville. It’s got a thick outline that comes off the shale a little bit, but it shows up pretty bizarre on the camera. Let me know if I need to upload different images. Thanks everyone.

    Ridgeback pygidium

    Hi forum friends. Cleaning out the back of my pick-up, I noticed this pygidium. It looks a lot like the eldredgeops I commonly find here but has a distinctly high ridge along the centerline. Could be just a molt that was "pinched" upward by the sides ? or possibly something different Cheers .... and thanks,

    Need Crinoid refrence

    I have some beautiful crinoid stem cross-section impressions from the Devonian Mahantango in PA (runs from NY to VA) and have been searching all morning to find a good reference book that won't cost me $100 just to open the cover and see if it's adequate to the task at hand. Winifred Goldring seems to have done the definitive works, but she didn't include any cross sections! Can anybody point me in the right direction?
  13. New location, still in Eastern Panhandle WV. One picture has the tip of a pencil so you can see size. The circled part...I am not sure. Are the shells brachiopods? I see some crinoid stem in there. Thank you for your insights.
  14. This was my first time at Beltzville State Park in Pennsylvania, USA. I believe these come the Upper Devonian Mahantango Formation. I saw similar examples in other posts as was hoping to confirm my guesses. Thanks 1. Horn coral? 2. Crinoid stem?- not sure if that’s something to the left of the stem. 3. Rugose coral?

    Devonian Lycopsid?

    I found this interesting fossil in the area of the Beltzville dam in Pennsylvania. Exposures in the area are generally Upper Devonian Mahantango Formation so I was surprised to see what looked to me like a lycopsid plant. The area where I spotted this find was mostly devoid of fossils but there were exposures with usual marine fauna within a few hundred yards. If anyone has any thoughts, I would appreciate it!
  16. Hi folks. This is the first I've seen a line this straight in the shale matrix here. I did not want to break into it until I shared it here for comments. Almost looks like a flattened something, but I have no clue what. Could it just be geological ? Thanks ... as always

    Trilobite part for ID

    Hi folks ! While on a walk to my mailbox, at a quick glance, I noticed the unmistakable shape of this little guy halfway protruding from the shale bank along the road. There is a very thin vein of highly populated matrix that is on my list for future investigatory excavation. Anyone care to provide a positive ID ? (see tags for pertinent info) Thanks so much,
  18. Spent some time earlier poking around at the Devonian aged Mahantango formation at Seven stars and came across some items, the first three pics are the same rock, the tube formation of the first three pics were about twice the size but crumbled away but was able to preserve this much, any help at ids would be great
  19. I received some rough material that is labeled as Mahantango Formation, Middle Devonian : Givetian, McCoy's Ferry, Maryland. The stone has some strange circular impressions on it. I have no idea what these are. Can anyone tell me what these impressions are? Thanks in advance! MikeG

    Full circle

    Hello everyone! Regrettably, it has been a while since I contributed in any significant way on the forum. I’ve found myself busier than expected, and I haven’t been fossiling as much as I’d like to. Anywho, I got out on a hunt today that was special for me. I came to this forum two years ago. I had just been on a field trip with the same geology teacher who’d led my mother and my aunts and uncles on field trips. I had a blast and learned that fossil hunting could actually be done in Maryland by normal people, a fact which now seems so obvious to me. I had been hooked,
  22. Mahantango Formation Sparrowbush NY; Is there enough detail to ID? Looks somewhat like Dalmanites boothi. @piranha Thanks, Gordon Size: it will fit under a dime.

    Mahantango ID request

    This from the Mahantango Fm. near Sparrowbush NY, middle Devonian. Thank you. G
  24. Hello to everyone, I was trying to put together a plan for a spring or summer trip hunting fossils. I am particularly interested in the animals of mahantango formation and would like to know if anyone is familiar with some public locations that allow people to hunt for the fossils from that formation, or at least do not prohibit this. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated, Thank you.

    Mahantango Identification Help

    I found this yesterday at the Montour Fossil Pit, it unfortunately didn’t want to come out even close to one piece but I’ve been looking and cannot figure out what it is. Maybe someone else can identify easily??
