    Bryozoa help

    Middle Devonian, Seneca Cnty., NYS, Kashong Member(?). When I look at this rock it looks as though there are 3 kinds of Bryozoans. The first photo is of the rock itself...the 2nd photo include lines of what I see as different Bryozoans. The Blue line (3rd photo) shows pronounced verticle lines, Red line (4th photo) shows "elongated" structures and Green line(5th photo) shows square structures. Am I looking at it wrong? Id would be helpful as well as clarification on what I think I see. Thanks Greg

    Stereolasma rectum?

    Found in Kashong Member, Central NYS, Middle Devonian. Is this a Stereolasma rectum or is it too small to tell? Found alone in a small slab. I'm pretty sure it was broken off...but it must have been small to begin with. The tip measures approx. 1/16", it is 1/4" long and the top is approx. 3/16". Thanks Greg

    Coral or Bryozoan

    Middle Devonian, Finger Lakes region, Hamilton Group, both are "branching forms". Today I found what I at first thought was a colonial rugose coral Eridophyllum(1st photo by someone on another forum). The outside appearance looks to me to be very simalar to what I found(3rd photo). However, on closer inspection, I realized that the open ends were quite different. In his you can see septa...on mine the inside of the ends are "grainy"(2nd photo). Also it should be noted that mine has been broken at the upper sections. It's been suggested that mine might actually be Bryazoa. Any thoughts?

    Found from the Middle Devonian, Deep Run member, Finger Lakes Region. A very small "shell". Positive and Negative. Thanks Greg

    Id please

    Found: Tully Limestone, Central NY, Middle Devonian. I'm pretty sure it's a Bryozoan, no, maybe a coral...I don't know? Perhaps Atactotoechus fruticosus? Thanks Greg
  6. I grabbed all these samples over the years from the same rock quarry in western New York, which excavates the Middle Devonian Onondaga Formation. I believe most of these are corals, but I was hoping someone could help specify what type of coral so I can organize them a bit better. I resized the pictures with the provided links to lower the quality, hopefully they are not too big still. Appreciate the help. 1. Two different fossils in this cherty material, on left I believe this is Rugose Coral because visible septa, but on the right above the letter "L" in the coin I am not
  7. This is a photo(color photos in the hand) of the specimen I found. Middle Devonian, Tully Limestone, Central NYS. I was told that it was a Phacopida Asteropygin, non described species, and was sent this other photo (non color) photo. I would like to get the id name straight. This is a quote from the preparer: "Greg trilobite was almost prepared we are another time in lock down... snarge... but in any case let me know if u wanna restoration parts were skin was missed.... i can resto in high quality but i need to find a good metacanthina to copy missed skin or medium quality apoxie and paint
  8. This was found in a bucket of fossils/rocks from the West side of Seneca Lake in Central NYS...Middle Devonian. I asked the guy that gave them to me for identification. At first he said "Eridphyllum subcaspitosum" and then wrote back and told me it could be a Bryozoan. It's a little weird because I see no "vertical striations" as I see in the books and online. The end of the main section as you can see is mangled, it's right branch end is closed, but it's left branch is rounded as is most of the fossil. Also, the bottom is open and round. I explain this as I see nothing in the centers th

    inside mud mold...but of what?

    Found in the Skaneateles Formation, Central NYS, Middle Devonian. This has four sides a pointed end and a broken end. All four sides have "shell grain"? There are "similar" shaped ones under Bi Valves in Wilson's book called Goniophora, but listed as Lower Devonian. There are several pages listed in Linsley's book, but no period mentioned. Thanks Greg

    I found this near Seneca Lake in NYS...Middle Devonian I'm not sure, but I think it is the whole piece shown. There is matrix covering it so, I'm not sure. The only thing that I've come up with is from Linsely's book and it's title is Bryozoan "stick form. Thanks Greg

    What it this?

    This rock is full of surprises for me. It was found near Seneca Lake in NYS, Middle Devonian. I don't know at all what I'm looking at...the only thing I recognize are the ends of Crinoid Stems. Any help is greatly appreciated Greg

    This Bivalve is from the Middle Devonian, near Seneca Lake in NYS. Could this be Modiella pygmaea? Thanks Greg

    This Gastropod is from Middle Devonian, near Seneca Lake in NYS. Could this be a Bembexia sulcomarginata? I purchased the book by Linsely...but, I'm finding a lot of mistakes in it...page references, names and such. Thanks Greg
  14. grg1109

    Id please

    I assumed this was some kind of Gastropod, but now wondering if it is a sponge...may not be either. I can't find a Gastropod which looks likely in Linsley's book, and there are no sponges listed. Searched on the internet and found sponges...but the "squares" look bigger than the ones on this fossil. Photos are of top, edge and underneath. Middle Devonian, Finger Lakes Region of NY, near Seneca Lake. Thanks Greg
  15. Trilobites of the United States from my Paleo Archives Collection (Refer to Attached File) (1) Olenellus clarki and Olenellus fremonti (Early Cambrian), Marble Mts, California (2) Elathria kingii (Middle Cambrian) from Wheeler Amphitheater, Utah (3) Phacops rana milleri (Middle Devonian) of Sylvania Fossil Beds, Ohio (4) Ameura missouriensis (Upper Pennsylvanian), Jemez Springs, New Mexico

    Possible Terataspis piece?

    Hello all! So I’ve been messing around with my collection lately and I came across this piece. It’s from the Onondaga Limestone, probably from Onondaga County. I was wondering if there’s any chance it’s a weathered piece of a Terataspis Grandis? Or if it’s something else entirely. Thanks for the help! Owen

    I found this Gastropod in the same rock as the topic ("no idea what so ever"). Tully Limestone, Cortland Cnty., Central New York, Middle Devonian. This one is a bit different. I think the id is: Platyceras carinatum(from the "Field Guide to Devonian Fossils" page174-175). Am I close? Approx. 29mm or 1 1/8" long X 13mm or 9/16" wide. Thanks Greg
  19. Found in Tully Limestone, Cortland Cnty., Central NY, Middle Devonian I assume this is a juvenile Dipleura dekayi trilobite (approx. 1" across)...Cephalon only. Greg

    no idea what so ever

    I have no idea what this is...but, I've found two of them in the same rock. I've not the slightest idea on even where to start looking. The first is easy to spot(approx 1" X 1/2"), the second has a pin towards it(approx. 3/4"). Thanks Greg
  21. grg1109


    Here's Bivalve(I think). The closest Id I could find is: Pteriomorphia ambonychiacea. But, usually when I think I've id'd something... I'm wrong...what do others think?

    Two Brachiopods

    I have been unable to find these two Brachiopods in my books. I would like to know if anyone can id them for me. I have to add that I "assume" the first is a Brachiopod. I have looked in Lower, Middle and upper Devonian Brachiopods of NY and also Devonian Bivalves of NY. Thanks Greg

    two strange fossils

    I've come across these two fossils...not sure what to make of the "cigar shaped" one(1 5/8" X 5/8")...not a clue where to look for an ID. The second one..."snail shaped"( 5/8")... I guess I should start under "Gastropods". Thanks Greg
  24. grg1109


    This one has really got me. I can't figure out it's orientation. I've looked for id and the closest I can come up with is Viaphacops cristatus. But, not "seeing it...don't know. I think this is the correct direction...with the Trilopod looking up...but on the right side of the photo(on top of this direction) what would be it's back...the edge of the exoskeleton is convex...which doesn't make sense either, as shown in the 2nd photo. Thanks Greg

    cephalopod mold?

    This is a "mud mold" that I found in the creek near King Ferry, NY. Approx. 8 inches long. I've been told its a cephalopod. Thanks Greg
