  1. Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules here posting a link. I spent my weekend finally putting my catalog into a proper database, and creating a user interface for it. I used to use Google Sheets, which is pretty great. If I wanted to, I could use them as the source of data, but I decided to create a proper MYSQL database so I can keep relationships across tables, such as the stratigraphy of particular find locations. I have many more improvements coming for it, but it is at least functional right now. Everything from CG-0001 to CG-0161 is from the Glenshaw Formation, Conemaugh Group
  2. I've had these for close to 20 years now and have shown some of them before but figured it was time to do a proper job of looking for info. (If I did before, I can't find the topic) I know nothing about these, either ID or location. They were part of a batch of fossils I received from an old rockhound couple in Nanaimo, which wasn't too carefully curated (a common problem with rockhounds/casual fossil collectors). Looking for info on the mystery items from that lot is what brought me to the Forum in the first place more than 10 years ago. I know Riley's Canyon, Utah has red corals, b
  3. Is anyone familiar with the Paleozoic formations on Bear Mountain, just northwest of Silver City, New Mexico? I have collected there a couple of times but am unsure as to which formation I was sampling. My first guess is that it is the Andrecito Member of the Lake Valley Limestone (Mississippian (Early Osage) but I know that there are also fossils found in the underlying Devonian Percha Shale, especially east of Silver City. There are a variety of brachiopods, bryozoans, rugose corals, and some crinoid bits. The photos show one of the larger brachiopods. Do you recognize it? Thanks.

    Colonial Rugose Coral ID

    This colonial rugose coral was found in Clarksville, TN and was sent to me just a few days ago and i’m not very well versed in Cnidarian classification, any ideas on a species?

    What the heck is this?

    I don’t know where it was found or how old was it is. I found it at one of the cave the mounds sleuthing sites in Dane county Wisconsin, its about 3cm long and looks a bit like coral.

    Eurypterid ID help

    I was given this Eurypterid fossil a while back and I was looking to see if anyone had any ideas towards a species, i’ve got no idea where it came from other than somewhere in the New England/Canada area. Someone has told me it looks like an Adelophthalamus but id like some more opinions. Thank you

    Cephalopod fossil?

    Relevant info first: This was found in Petoskey Michigan while looking for Petoskey stones. It was found in partially buried in sand. It is quite large and rather heavy. As pictured in picture 5, there is some sort of opening at the end? I can't get a very good picture of the inside, it's hard to get light where i need it and take a picture. the hole looks to maybe be about a 1/2 mm deep, and less than that wide. I took to reddit, albeit with less detailed photos and was told it was a straight shelled nautiloid cephalopod from the paleozoic, and that it was a brevicone, which I'm hoping someon

    The heck is this?

    Some sort of badly damaged arthropod? Do not know where it was found. Wavy lined one is around 2 cm in length Thicker one which looks like a head shield is around 1 cm in diameter and one in a half cm in length
  13. Hi, Recently acquired "Earth before the dinosaurs" book by Alain Beneteau. Published by Indiana University Press. Very comprehensive and well illustrated position. There are not too many books regarding paleozoic vertebrates. It gives good sense how the life looked like in the late paleozoic time. How much diversified early amphibians and mammals-like reptiles were. It is more a popular science book, but a good one. Tom
  14. 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

    Bunch of Brachiopods to ID

    Hello everyone! I recently received a package from @connorp filled with wonderful brachiopods! I am not exactly sure as to what the IDs for some of them are so I thought I would ask here Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you 1. Silica shale. These look like Atrypa sp. but I am not sure what species are present in this formation. 3 cm wide 2. Same formation. Stropheodonta? 2 cm wide 3. This is from the Ordovician Liberty Formation. Rhynchonellid not sure what genus or species 1.5 cm wide 4. Some kind of strophomenid from the Mifflin Mem

    Eurypterid walking legs

    I have one simple question, How do we know eurypterid walking legs are legs? I find eurypterids to be one of the strangest Paleozoic creatures and while looking at some pictures of them I noticed how similar eurypterid walking legs and wobbegong mouths are. I have not seen yet just a single eurypterid walking leg fossilized alone. Any help would be appreciated thanks in advance
  18. Here are some finds from a late August to early September long loop road trip, fossil hunting through Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana and Kentucky. I'll appreciate detailed specimen identification help. First photo shows brachiopods & a trilobite from the Devonian Silica Shale Formation near Sylvania, northwestern Ohio.

    Calling Palebotanists!

    Ya know, I'm great at plant identification if it's currently growing in my region. Dive back to the Paleozoic and I can tell Calamites from Cordaites, but that's about my limit without a book in hand. So far, I've had 8 and I still don't know what this is! I'm pondering the frond-like object running diagonally across the center of the picture. It looks like a fruiting body from Cordaites, but it lacks the sporophyll. It also resembles Corynepteris angustissima, but the only illustration I can find lacks sufficient detail. This came from a mid-late Pennsylvanian Lewellyn Formation e
