  1. While heading to visit family in southern Indiana, I decided to leave a day early to do a bit of collecting in the Cincinnatian. The first stop was, as usual, St. Leon, to look for the famous Flexicalymene rollers. In the past, I've usually found 2-4 per visit, but was quite lucky this time, walking away with 10 rollers and my first prone. Here are a couple in situ shots. After a couple hours at St. Leon, I headed towards my hotel. As it turned out, it was just down the road from Trammel Fossil Park. I had not been here before. It ex

    Our Great I-80 Road Trip

    Greetings, all! After exploring outcrops and spoils piles from Quebec down to Florida, we are heading west from Delaware to Crawford, Nebraska and back this fall. Planning to stop by Sylvania, OH and Clear Lake, IA. Probably Richmond, IN. Any other suggestions? Thoughts on these three?
  3. Hello TFF friends, I recently recieved some Ordovician Brachiopods from Ohio and would love some help with getting IDs for them, First up are two Lingulid Brachiopods from the Waynesville Formation: I have not been able to find much on the brachiopods from this formation, the brachiopods also look slightly different so I am not sure if that indicates some kind of different species or these are just differences between individuals. Both are about 1.5 cm in length Next up are two rhynchonellids, these two are preserved together and are about 2 cm in width, perhaps Lep
  4. I purchased a couple of buckets of fossil/rocks from a friend who found them in the Ohio/Indiana area...which he told me was Ordovician and Silurian. Unfortunatly I've lost the paper that described where this section of fossil/rock came from. At first I thought it was a Crinoid...upon further inspection I noticed that there were patterns along with the ridges. So, I scribed it out of the rock. I noticed that one end was slightly larger than the other and that it was on the "Oval" side. There is a bit of pyritisation...especially inside the small end. So, I'm not really sure ...but I
  5. Hello everyone, I have been wondering about this for a bit but only now that I atually have one of these in my collections have I decided to ask this, All of the P. bownockeri I have seen have been pyritized and I wanted to ask why this is, I do not know of any other brachiopods like this because while there are some I have seen preserved in pyrite they are from areas where the rest of the fossils are also pyritized, from what I have seen its mostly just this species that is commonly found fully pyritized from this formation. The only thing I can think of is maybe they are found
  6. My son found this in our rock bed landscaping. We live with the Dayton, Ohio region.

    Tooth, Claw, or Tusk??

    We found this piece in our creek located in Licking County, Ohio. We’ve been wondering what it was from for a several years now and have never found the answer. it is very light weight. Hopefully someone here can assist us!

    Devonian bone bit - fish tooth?

    This little bone chip is from the Dundee Limestone (Middle Devonian) of Ohio. I find a lot of bone fragments in these rocks, but this one seems different. In particular, along one edge there look like there might be serrations, so maybe a tooth fragment? It measures approximately 1cm at the largest dimension. Thanks for any input.
  9. I found this specimen in the Silica Shale (Middle Devonian) of Ohio this past weekend. It measures approximately 2cm at the widest point. I have not come across anything like it before. I'm getting a fish vibe but I'm not certain. Any thoughts? Front Back

    NE Ohio Fossil ID Help Needed

    I recently found this fossil while walking in a shale creek bed in Cuyahoga County, Ohio (Northeast Ohio just south of Cleveland). The area is late Devonian - early Mississippian. The piece is approximately 11cm x 7cm (4.25in x 2.75in). Any help in identifying it would be greatly appreciated.

    A lucky Devonian find

    This past weekend I was able to hunt in the Middle Devonian Silica Shale in Ohio for a couple of hours. I found a lot of great things, but I think this took the cake for me. It was my first good find of the day, and the only specimen I've found in 5+ trips to this site. I don't have my Silica Shale book with me right now, but I believe it to be Hyperoblastus reimanni. In situ Cleaned up

    Possible Walnut fossil?

  13. Becky Benfer

    This is weird....

    I have no idea what this is. Any ideas? I really don’t want to break it open unless you guys suggest I do so. I think I found it in a field - my area is north central Ohio. It’s heavy and not brittle at all. Feels smooth but kind of like dry mud or clay. I don’t think it’s a rock but I need your help please. Thank you.

    ADAM'S SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelg

    Possible coral with trilobite?

    Hi there! I recently purchased an awesome Flexicalymene trilobite. After unwrapping it, there was a bonus surprise fossil! I didn't think too much of it prior to buying, and just thought it was a matrix blob from the seller's photo. But I'm pleasantly surprised! My first thought was that it was a piece of coral or some type of ocean plant. The info card that came with the trilobite states that it was found in Mt Orab, Ohio, USA in the Arnheim formation. Wondering if any of you cool cats would be able to identify what it is? I'm just curious and interested
  16. Hello, I am an amateur fossil hunter whos level of knowledge is pretty limited. I love going out and hunting but my ability to identify and prep what I find is quite limited. I found this cephalopod fossil near Cincinnati Ohio a couple of years ago and it is by far my best find ever. I'm typically fine picking at or grinding away with a Dremel trying to prep my finds as they are usually small bits. Nothing I'm worried about ruining. This is something different and I'm pretty apprehensive about working on it. I read there isn't much harm in gluing it back together and I attempter this. It looks
  17. Hello, I've been recently fascinated by large isotelus trilobites. Does anyone on here own one and would like to show and talk about it, I would if I owned one but I don't see that happening anytime soon haha. This is the largest I've seen for sale so far that would've been 8 inches, would be nice to be able to find one but I don't have that luxury.
  18. I'm working up a series of fossil field guides for various formations. I'd like to provide a visual indicator of which fossils are rare, which are common, and which are abundant, without getting in the way of the visual layout of the fossils & identifying information. The complete set of categories I am working with is {Abundant, Common, Rare, Very Rare, Common to Abundant, Rare to Abundant, Rare to Common, Present, and Questionable}. Has anyone seen a good way that a field guide of any kind has provided such a visual indicator as a page-wide element of visual layout? Attached is my first

    Devonian Glacial Grooves, Kelley's Island

    Hello everyone, I was hesitant to make this post because I have to give up my secret treasure-trove of marine fossils, but I guess you Ohioans deserve to know. When we went to Cleveland, we stopped at Kelley's Island to go to the beach. Being a fossil-hunter, I started sifting through sand for rocks. I found some, and carefully examined each one. I got all kinds of fossils, about 10-15 in all. That was surprising enough. But then we went to 2 more beaches, and found some real beauties! I am not going to specify exactly where the best trove is, but just search all of them and I guar

    Reptile heads or rocks?

    So over the last few years I've collected different rocks, fossils, and anything else I find that i think is unique. Eventually, I go through them and have a closer look. I'm sure my eyes are making things up, but, hey, why go om wondering when I can just ask?? I have some rocks here some found in Indiana and some in Ohio and I'm wondering if they are reptile heads of some sort(I'm assuming that's a thing people actually find lol) If you tell me they are rocks, I will believe they are rocks and will appreciate the knowledge. Thank you in advance! You guys rock(yes, pun intended)! Oh, and the

    Anyone know what this might be?

    I found this while camping in Ohio and after getting home and cleaning it up, it looks to have some type of fossil. Maybe coral or slug? I'm really not sure. These pictures are with a micro camera.
  22. I graduated college back in May, and since my graduate program did not start until September, I was fortunate to have quite a bit of time this summer to explore further away from home. I've been slowly prepping and cataloging over the past couple months, and figured I would share some of my favorite finds that I haven't shared yet. First up is dump piles of Silica Shale (Middle Devonian) in Paulding, OH. My university was not far from here, so this is really where I started fossil hunting. I've been here quite a few times, so most of what I found I already had in

    Flowrock with a fossil

    I think I finally found a fossil within a piece of flowrock!?!?!? Found in the same area as the other flowrock pieces in N central Ohio, in a river. Nothing superb but I’m excited! Looks like a shell to me- right? Thanks!

    What in the world?

    Found in N central Ohio- it’s so oddly shaped and full of weird pieces. Maybe a conglomerate?? The bottom right area has a different, small dotted look. Could it consist of a fossil? Thanks for your help!
  25. Hi- this is such a large piece and it looks like tree bark or wood , but it’s a rock. Could it be petrified wood or plant root? ( I keep finding small pieces like this as well.) Found in N central Ohio, river. If the location wasn’t known would you think it may be one of those ? Just curious. I guess I’m asking what to look for because I drag tooooo many “ rocks” home, Thanks again for all help .
