  3. Hello all- I am in the early stages of planning a fossiling outing to TX and OK in March. Would any of you folks be willing to either point me or take me to sites out there? There are a lot of different fossil in these states and I have been in touch with a few forum members already, but I would appreciate any help any one can offer. I have Waurika and the Wilson Clay Pit o the list already. I imagine I can do NSR solo, but anyone who would be willing to show me around there would be a hero. I don't plan to go as far as Houston but Austin maybe for Whiskey Bridge.... A

    Help to ID Trilobites fron Wheeler Formation

    Hello friends, I need your help to learn a little more, I am not an expert in trilobites, in fact what I own are the Brachiopods, but accommodating my fossils, I found myself very similar and they filled me with doubts, can you could help me distinguish between an interstricted Peronopsis and a Ptychagnostus atavis, both of the Upper Cambrian, of the Wheeler Formation, in House Range, Millard county, Utah. Thank you.

    My first 3D trilobite

    An unidentified species of Paralejurus, dated to the Emsian age of the Devonian. It's from Jebel Oufatene, Morocco. It's also my first 3D trilobite. Of course, I bought it, I don't have any skills in finding fossils and preparing them. They'll hopefully develop in the future though.

    Fossil IDs (if possible)

    I like collecting fossils, but I usually am not sure what my finds are. Please, could you help me identify these fossils? I noted down some possibilities down below. 1 - could be a late Albian ammonite from central Serbia, but I am not entirely sure. Acquired in Serbia. 2 - Found at Southerndown, Wales. Could it be a tree root or something in the region of that? It has a cross-hatched pattern if you look closely. 3 & 4 - A shell I found at Penarth, Wales but I am not entirely sure what it is called. 5 - A bone I found in the mud at Tites Point, Severn, Glouceste
  10. Hey everyone, Several weeks back I posted about a James Hall book I bought on amazon. I also expressed my interest in the original publication “Eurypterids of New York Sate”. @GerryK messaged me and told me he would sell me a set. We got talking and he invited me to Rochester to check out his collection, talk fossils, and pick up the book in person!! This was before Christmas and we both had to wait out the holidays for our meet up. Well I finally went and visited Gerry on Sunday. What a great time! Gerry is a trilobite wizard.....no doubt about it. We sta

    I posted this under member introductions on accident but today me and Devoniandigger got to dig for the first time this year. I had an ok day pulling out 9 rollers and a prone eldredgeops and Devoniandigger walked out with countless rollers, a double with a prone and a roller, and a triple with 2 prones and a roller. All in all great day at the site.

  13. This spring break (March 17th-23rd) my girlfriend and I are planning a trip in Utah, Wyoming, and Colorado. It looks like most of the big dig sites are closed for the season, which was a disappointment for us to see. The tentative plan was to go through Kemmerer from Salt Lake (home,) and hit the digs sites there, go through Vernal to the Quarry and the Prehistoric Museum there, then to Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado with a possibility of hitting Price Utah and the Cleveland Lloyd Quarry on the way back. Without any of the digs open, it seems like we're just trying to find simple thing
  14. Hey everyone! You were all so great when it came to helping me determine what fossils were authentic and worth spending well on. Well, I recently came across an online seller. I purchased a "jaw bone" (authentic teeth, the typical fake jaw set in sand) and noticed they are now selling many more fossils that appear to be complete casts. Is it worth reporting them or could it be that they don't know much about fossils themselves and are being conned by their suppliers? They have 100% positive feedback so I guess their customers don't know what to look for either?
  15. I have been asked by a couple of TFF members if we have personal collecting interests in addition to what we collect for educational purposes. We keep most of our posts about the education side of what we do because 95% of what we collect is for education. We also have legal bits that guide how our own fossils are used in the education program which I covered in a previous piece. To summarize that post, there is a distinct line drawn between fossil that belong to Fossils and Wheels and how they are used. My son and I loan our personal collection for education programs plus we have donated a go

    Trilobites Vireux France

    Hello, I recently accuired these French trilobites from an old collection. They are ID’ed as Phacops latifrons from the lower devonian of Vireux France. Doing some research I suspect that they aren’t called that way anymore. Can someone assist me with the correct name? Thanks!
  17. Hi all, Rather late than never, i managed some time to make a photo galery of my best find of 2018. I mostly hunted trilos, but also manages a few trips for ammonites, echinoids and even graptolithes. The time span is quite wide also : ordovician, silurian, jurassic and cretaceous. I wont post everything (it's been a productive year again) here but you can see it in the galery : or on my flickr galery here : https://flic.kr/s/aHsm9dKo7r Regards
  18. Hello everyone, When I joined the forum I shared a few of my Buffalo, New York trilobites but only my rare Pseudodechenella rowi trilobites. I said I was eventually share some other trilobites so here I am haha. The winter has kinda been a bummer recently in upstate New York but we just had a freak warm day recently. In the future I want to share my Eldredgeops collection, brachs, cephalopods, plant specimens but I’m not going to rush it. In this post I’m going to share some of my Greenops sp. that I have collected exclusively from the wanakah shale on the Lake Erie sh
  19. Five years ago today, we lost a beloved friend of the Fossil Forum, Caleb Scheer. It was a sad day when his father, Al, "Roadcut1", informed the Forum that he died. Caleb was very knowledgeable in the Ordovician trilobites of the Midwest. He took this knowledge to create the website "Midwest Paleo" that illustrates some exquisite trilobites from the Ordovician in the Midwest. On the Forum he would make over a thousand posts, making comments, helping identify fossils and posting pictures of the fossils he collected, especially trilobites. His avatar is a beautiful coiled Cybeloides iowensis he

    Cole Hill 1-8-18

    I decided to try my luck at Cole Hill today after seeing @Calico Jack and @Al Tahan's recent luck. With last night's rain, the roads were a bit slick on the ride out, but not terrible. I arrived around 10 and quickly saw where they had been working. They both said they had only been there for a short time but there sure was fresh rock thrown everywhere. Somebody is fibbing! I decided to work a spot close to where I found my last couple, mostly complete Dipleuras. I wish I had something exciting to report but all I found was a lot of the usual suspects. Cephalons, pygidiums, Bembexia, various

    What are these?

    I was just wondering what the species for the trilobites are but I’m not sure what the 3rd thing is as it looks like an ammonoid or nautiloids from most angles but it doesn’t have an aphycyus it has an operculum so is it a devils tonail thanks

    Trilobite from Udig, Utah

    Hi everyone. I'm new to preparing and don't have the money to get the proper equipment. However, I do have the Harbor freight Air eraser I was recommended by several b people on here. Anyway, I have one of those tiny to segment Trilobite who name I forget for the minute. The matrix he was in broke up, so I've mounted it to another piece of same udig shale before I start work on the Trilobite so I don't have it break n in half. There's a small Gap in the matrix because it's not a perfect fit, but Very close. The glue is holding well and clear , but what can I use as filler for the t

    Holy Rollers

    I sneaked one more trip under the wire for 2018. Last minute finds include 5 whole and 2 half Flexicalamene trilobites, Ordovician, St. Leon, Indiana. This popular site was hit hard recently as evidenced by the stampede of foot and knee pad prints. Last night’s rain wasn’t enough to really shuffle the deck, but a couple diligent hours allowed me to scratch out ample paydirt. No complaints.
  25. I recently received a scotoharpes trilobite from my grandmother for christmas, and was told by a kind member of this forum to share it with everyone! I'm fairly new to fossil collecting- I acquired my first fossil when I was 7 years old, a piece of horned coral, and built up a collection over the years, but the direction I want to take is trilobites! My favorites being the harpetids. Please share your harpes specimens or any other trilobite you are proud of!
