    ROM- Dawn of Life Gallery

    I visited the ROM in Toronto, during the Toronto trip. I’ll just let the images do the talking. Metaspriggina The wall of early spines. Sponges, and other things. A worm. Gogia.
  3. Hi All. I am heading to the NAPC meetings in Michigan in June. Unfortunately the field trips filled up fast. I am hoping to take in a little local fossil collecting in the area if possible while there (anything really). If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear from you. If you live in the area or are attending NAPC and want to organize an informal collecting jaunt I am happy to do that too. Thank you for the help!
  4. As promised, your #ThePaleoCommunityOrganizer update for March 31. (See previous thread here.) After a 12-year(!) hiatus, the Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) has finally rebooted American Paleontologist, the old avocational paleontology standby, as a community newsletter. To do what I can to support this effort, I've signed on as a columnist, with a column called The PaleoCommunity Organizer. It centers the community aspect of our shared avocation and looks at all the ways in which acting as a community can inspire and save avocational paleontology and help it thrive in the 21st century. And, well, it wouldn't be much of a column about community if it were just me talking. A crucial aspect is hearing from y'all, whether that means calling me out on something I missed, or naming a powerful example of something I only just touched on, or reframing the conversation as you see it. The community always knows more than I do. So, community, bring your feedback here to The Fossil Forum, where we can build on each other's ideas and craft a better avocational paleontology world for all of us. Action item for you: In the comments below, I'd love to hear your feedback on the first PaleoCommunity Organizer column, which starts on page 10 of this first issue of the American Paleontologist newsletter. This first installment of the column is called How Fossil Community Got Lost—and How We Get It Back, Part I. So, where to find this first issue, hot off the virtual presses? Right here: https://www.priweb.org/research-and-collections/american-paleontologist My thanks again. You can continue to find links to all these Fossil Forum discussions of PaleoCommunity Organizer columns at the following homepage for The PaleoCommunity Organizer: https://www.priweb.org/research-and-collections/american-paleontologist/pco

    New here!

    I have just joined! I have been an avid collector of interesting things, most of my life, the older the better! I live 10 miles from the Graf (Iowa) site and will be posting interesting things I find on my weekly adventures out there. And around other places here in the Midwest. Glad to be here!
  6. News flash and request for near-future feedback! After a 12-year(!) hiatus, the Paleontological Research Institution (PRI) is about to reboot American Paleontologist, the old avocational paleontology standby, as a community newsletter. To do what I can to support this effort, I've signed on as a columnist, with a column called "The PaleoCommunity Organizer."

So, community, bring your feedback here to The Fossil Forum, where we can build on each other's ideas and craft a better avocational paleontology world for all of us. Action item: Look out for a followup post here on March 31, 2024, when American Paleontologist's first newsletter drops. That's when I'll ask y'all to get the discussion rolling on my column's first entry: "How Fossil Community Got Lost—and How We Get It Back." Stay tuned.

    Fossil Sites in Western PA?

    Greetings, I’ve recently gotten back into prospecting fossils and I’m looking for some suggestions on sites to visit in western Pennsylvania. I frequently visit Ambridge PA to find fern and Calamite fossils from the Mahoning fm and would like to find more. I also would like to find fossils of early Permian (tetrapods, plants, or invertebrates). I hear that Washington county (south of Pittsburgh) has some great spots and would like to know if it were true. I also would like to show some of my findings from Ambridge as well. Note: I’d like this to be suggested places not just western PA but West Virginia and eastern Ohio as well.
  8. As I continue to explore (see my prior thread Earlier today I visited the Upper Freeport Formation south of East Liverpool. These are sandstones associated with the Upper Freeport coal, so we are at the end of the formation. I have been up here repeatedly over the past year but never explored rocks this old in the area. It was snowing for about two hours this morning but I still spotted some cool fossils. Unfortunately while I saw the Upper Freeport coal, I didn’t have the opportunity to collect in it. Here are two separate medium sized impressions of lycopsid trunks. I then moved further into younger sediments, revisiting where Pteroplax was collected (Romer, 1963). This is a well known site in the literature, reported in most of the Ohio Pennsylvanian age invert reports of the latter half of the 20th century. I’ve been here before, though we mistakenly descended to the base of the cut along the rail line which was frustrating. The circumstances of how Pteroplax was collected are interesting. Look the paper up. That unit it was produced from is no longer evident and completely overgrown and slumped but it’s fine because I was here for the Ames limestone. Everything I collected here was typical of what I have seen of the Ames limestone in eastern Ohio so I have omitted pictures. Afterward I moved on to another section that exposes a larger portion of the Glenshaw Formation (the Ames is the terminal Glenshaw transgression, the Upper Freeport coal is below the Glenshaw’s lowest unit). Here are some Pine Creek (Upper Brush Creek) brachiopods. One is a productid and the other is a part and counter part of a spiriferid (?Neospirifer). In the Cambridge limestone, we found this badly preserved snail. Perhaps with some preparation, it can be identified further. It is fairly beat up. At this locality, the Cambridge is very coarse grained and hard. The snail is not exhibiting the typical preservation qualities of other invertebrate fossils found here. In a younger unit, I found this partial Deltodus tooth as well as a possible actinopterygian scale (I have my doubts but friends are certain). Both are hanging out with broken bellerophontid snail pieces. Tomorrow I will be in the Mercer (Pottsville Group) which is older than anything you’ve seen in these two threads. If I find anything worth sharing, I’ll share! In the future I will be updating this thread for the entire month (and maybe the year) instead of starting new threads.
  9. I have taken a great interest in the Carboniferous period lately, but aside from the more well known 3 (Meganeura, arthropleura, and pulmunoscorpius) finding info on other giant "bugs" seems kind of difficult.

  18. Greetings from Oberwil, Switzerland. I'm a new member on thefossilforum.com, but I've been collecting fossils from roadside stops and occasional dedicated outings for nearly 30 years. I'm a chemist by training - I fell in love with making new medicines, and have stuck with it. I find it mind-boggling to relate to the age of the fossils I'm holding...life is far more ancient, far more mysterious, far more marvellous than our imagination can comprehend. I've learned to respect life deeply...this planet is the only one where we know it exists, and has existed, for unimaginably long time. I'm in awe. I'll share some pictures from my collection in the coming days, in hopes of finding out more about where they fit into the grand scheme of life. My favorite fossils are Ordovician (Paleozoic), but I've come across some real stumpers from my trip to Madagascar a few years back; those fossils are almost certainly from the late Mesozoic. I'll be asking for advice on them soon. Ah...I'm now a Swiss citizen, but I was born to German (Swabian) parents who had emigrated to southeastern Tennessee in the early 1960's. Switzerland is home to me now. Best regards Mike

    Are these Orthoceras?

    Tried to find a place where you can supposedly find carboniferous/devonian fauna. I'm either really bad at prospecting or the site has been destroyed since the last reports (probably both). I ended up finding these on a couple of rocks that had been moved next to a house so I don't know their age. Orthoceras are cited from this locality, so maybe?? Could be funny-looking rocks too

    Trilobite pygidium or brachiopod?

    Each square is one centimeter. What is this mould of? Thank you!
  21. SilurianSalamander

    Agatized/silicified cephalopods?

    Are these cephalopods in chert? They appear to be agatized as well. The first two pictures are from a chunk of chert and agate that I split to find what looks like the chambers of a nautiloid cephalopod. Is this a fossil or just some way silica forms? Thanks so much!
  22. Hello, I found this beauty on a popular auction site and the seller seems to think it's a horseshoe crab. There is no geological information with it and the seller isn't even sure if it's real. I was hoping that someone might be able to identify it. Thanks.
  23. This looks similar to some jawless fish bone I’ve seen. Could this be some? Ordovician, Wisconsin, Dane county, Madison.
