    Moscow fm wood?

    found in Erie co New York. Are these a fossil or an erratic coal lump? It is very light in weight and has a wood texture
  8. SharkySarah

    Moscow formation gastropod

    I found this gastropod in a stream in Erie. co NY. It is roughly 1 mm tall and 3 mm across. Finding resources online has proven tricky. I'm leaning towards Euryzone or Glyptotomaria but would love an opinion from someone familiar with this formation.
  9. SharkySarah

    A day of Eurypterids

    I’ve been a little dormant in the forum in the last couple year but it’s not for my lack of interest in fossils!! Sometimes it’s just hard to set time aside for everything. I have some fossils I want to donate to the forum and I hope writing it here will help me hold myself accountable to make the time to post them I moved to Frankfort, New York last year which situated me 30 minutes from the well known Lang’s quarry and only 15 minutes from an exposure of the Bertie formation (great place for looking not finding haha…the rock is bulletproof). Moving with a massive fossil collection is something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy!! I’m still not fully unpacked and set up my library display. Anyways, I was able to schedule a day with Al Lang to dig at his quarry. He’s not doing many pay to digs these days. Kinda winding down on those ventures but I have a little back history with Al so he was generous enough to have me over. Pictures incoming!

    Help with identification

    I found this on my 1800’s run down farm we purchased 2 years ago. My mother in law saw it and said it was a petrified egg. I picked it up because I thought it was cool but had no idea it could have been a fossil. any help identifying would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.
  12. Hello and Happy New Year to all of my Fossil Friends! Yesterday and today I put in my first 2 hunts of the year. The weather here has been mild and I almost went fishing instead. But the fossil gods were calling to me and I couldn't resist their siren song. I decided to visit a site that I haven't been to for awhile. I am sorry but a have made a New Years resolution to no longer name locations for the world to see. This is a site that I have gone a few times with minimal results. Mainly it is a rather large site and the rock is hard to work. But I knew the potential for nice finds were there. So, Yesterday I arrived in the afternoon, planning on putting in a few hours. I started off on a lower layer. Now there is multiple layers of shale mixed with slate and limestone. The way this material fractures is rather strange. Which makes recovery of specimens rather tough. So while I found many cool things most where damaged in some way. Crinoids, brachiopods, bivalves, gastropods, nautiloids and trilo Cephalons were fairly common. Some were even pyritized. I must have been there for a couple hours before I decided to explore farther up the slope. I noticed a different color rock closer to the top, but there was really no where to stand. I grabbed a couple loose pieces and started seeing parts of corals and crinoids that were larger then any I have found before. Also partial trilo bits and pieces of Eldregoeps. I looked for a way to get to the very top of the slope and found a way that was not at first obvious. And then bingo! I found a small section that was easier to work and I immediately was rewarded. I started finding abundant amounts of horn coral, large crinoid segments and a nice slab with a horn coral with a trilo right next to it and possibly more. Then I removed a chunk of rock and uncovered a huge tabulate coral about the size of a dinner plate. Unfortunately this specimen was fragile and was broke into a million pieces. But I recovered some of the larger pieces. It started getting dark so I left for home with plants to go back this morning, which I did. Today was much of the same tons of corals but one horn coral was about the size of a grapefruit. This is definitely a different species than I am used to seeing. Most if not all need to be cleaned up and possibly prepped. So I plan on trying to clean up and get the mud off. I will post pics later this evening. It looks like this year has started off with a bang. I hope it is a sign of things to come.

    DSR Trip

    Today I had the pleasure of fossil hunting Deep Springs Road with @Dean Ruocco, Alan Lang, Cynthia, and Marcus. This was my first trip to hunt in NY, while I was hoping for a Dipleura, I was able to see a nice big one be found (I will let Dean post it) Additionally I had some fun take homes that are not too common for my PA honeyhole. The day mostly consisted of Dean, Marcus, and Myself cutting in a bench and working it hard. Cynthia was wearing down some of our spoil piles and providing insight into what exactly we were looking at. Alan was generous letting us use his tools and providing valuable pointers on digging practices. My take homes include: Greenops (Pretty uncommon at my Honeyhole) Eldredgeops (While common in PA, I hear they are uncommon at DSR) Various Bivalves and Brachiopods (I'm always a fan of matrix free shells) Photos of my haul:

    Fish scales from Rhinestreet?

    Here’s some large possible fish scales? from black Rhinestreet shale on the 18 mile creek NY. They are about quarter size each, never found scales that big in the area before. Photo#1 is of the large “scales” photo #2 is the usual fish scale finds from that formation.

  18. My first stop on this east coast trip was to upstate NY. We actually camped at the herkkimer diamond mind in the town of Herkimer, but the euripturid quarry was only about 20 minutes away. This is the only picture I have for now, all my other specimens are in boxes. The calvert cliffs were more fun and relaxing, but this was the most exciting. Once I go through all my boxes and do whatever prep is needed I will show more pictures.

    Hi from New York

    Hi all I am an amateur when it comes to finding fossils. I’ve been interested in them for years but could use all the advice I can get as to how to spot and identify them. Can’t wait to learn and see all the cool finds.
  20. I’m almost done prepping this gastropod I found a couple weeks ago at the roadcut along Rickard Hill Rd. in Schoharie, NY, but I am unsure of the species. It is from the Lower Devonian Kalkberg formation.
