  1. Hi TFF Folks! Hope you’re all well and staying healthy! I began fossil hunting about 5 years ago (and am now past the ultra-newbie stage at this point). I’m the only real fossil hunting enthusiast in my family; I have been able to drag my husband and son with me at times, but my trips are sporadic (I live in southeastern Massachusetts - no local fossil sites around us, so not much opportunity for day trips, unfortunately). Since starting this hobby, I’ve been fossil hunting in New York State (the fossil pit at Cargill Salt Mines, which I understand is sadly now closed, and a few

    The U-Dig Shale Mystery.

    Hi All, Recently I purchased some Shale from U-Dig, UT. The trilobites inside were super swell, but one of the more interesting finds was this...thing... It appears to be a circular mass, with some veins or something radiating from the center. My hopeful brain began to think it could be a jellyfish, though realistically it is highly unlikely, and I've never heard of anything like that being preserved in the shale from U-dig. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I am at an ABSOLUTE loss. Thanks, -Snag

  4. Hey everyone, At first: my apologies that this is the only picture I have. I am looking into buying this lot of minerals and fossils which include the fossils on the attached picture. The scorpions and the centipede however do look very fake to me. Can anyone confirm these to be fake? And what about the trilobites? Thank you all for your time and help.

    Helderberg Group Fossils

    A few years ago I collected with the NYPS at a quarry exposing some Helderberg Group limestone. I failed to label some of my finds. I have a best guess on the trilobites but I was hoping to get some confirmation. I have struggled identifying a few of the brachiopods and a bryozoan and I could use some help with those. Any help is greatly appreciated. #1 - some type of bryozoan but I am not sure which one #2- ??? #3- ??? #4- Paciphacops logani? #5- Odontocephalus sp.?

    Devonian Double Whammy

    I had a great time meeting up at DSR with @mattbsharks today. We shared the site with a family from Sayre, Pennsylvania, and the New York Paleontology Society also paid us a visit. I found some decent stuff but gave away some items to a gentleman from Texas, as it was his first fossilhunt. So I sent him home with some trilobite bits and pieces. We also went over to Briggs Road for a bit. I only stayed for a little while as the sun was getting to hot for my liking. Also got to meet forum member @Nautiloid and his Dad at DSR. When Matt and I got to Briggs we ran into @DrDave. So it was great to

  8. Hi everyone! Hoping you can help me with a mystery. We've lived in our house for 5 years now, but with nothing else to do considering this pandemic, we've been exploring our front stone path a LOT more closely than we did before (especially considering 5 year old daughter's interest in fossils). We have noticed three trilobites (don't know how I missed these in the past - they are clear as daylight) and a couple other interesting things (maybe bryozoans, coral or echinoderms - I admit i can't tell them apart well). All of these new discoveries have me REALLY wondering now about something b

    What Calymene Species Are These?

    Hello again everyone. These are two of my favorite fossils, both Calymene spp. The first one was owned by my teacher for his biology classroom until he agreed to sell it to me because I had grown to love it. Unfortunately, as you can see, its cephalon is very damaged so that makes it more difficult to tell what it is. I know that it's definitely a Calymene, but I'm wondering which species, if possible to tell. In my own personal research, I found that I believed he most closely resembled a Calymene tristani? but I am very much an amateur and am not sure on that. If anyone could give me some mo
  10. I am in NYC for 5 days at the beginning of March, and I intend on taking at least one of those days to go find some fossils somewhere. I have nerded out pretty hard and crossreferenced localities etc and I have basically narrowed it to Big Brook, Shark River, or trilobites. I would love opinions on where the collecting would be best between Shark River and Big Brook (I have a bunch of Miocene shark teeth from California but absolutely nothing from the Cretaceous). I have some trilobites from California (white mountains) but nothing particularly special. Any and all suggestions will be consider
  11. It's been a long while since I've posted on here. I haven't been able to collect much lately, but I recently went out to some new haunts and came back with some pretty intriguing stuff I'll hopefully get to follow up on later. I'll start off with an interesting discovery I've had recently. The outcrop exposes rocks stretching from the upper(?) Brallier Formation to the middle(?) Foreknobs Formation. Although I tried searching in the past for brittle star trace fossils, I was mostly unsuccessful in this regard, and over time my interest in it shifted to the much more fossiliferous

    Has Anyone Found the Cambrian

    Hello Everyone, As someone who grew up in Washington and goes back on occasion when university is out (still haven’t found a crab yet though, they’re elusive) I have a passionate interest in the fossils of my state. I have recently been going through the fossilspot.com list of find spots for Washington and noticed, much to my excitement, that there are some listings for the Cambrian. I didn’t realise we had any Cambrian, I thought it was all a little North and East of Washington. Has anyone ever gone out and tried to find these? I’d be really interested to see if

    Fossil Locations

    I'm looking for some fossil sites that are about an hour to two hours around Blanchard. I'll collect just about anything and really just want to find some spots. I also am a little confused on laws regarding fossil collecting in Oklahoma, so if any one has any info on that I would love to hear.

  16. Sunday was the warmest and most pleasant day so far this spring. I decided on a solo venture up north to Schoharie County, N.Y. My destination was two road cut sites which expose the Lower Devonian Kalkberg Formation, part of the Helderberg group. The primary attractions here are the abundance and diversity of fossils, and very good preservation. The first road cut site is immense and I spent about three hours surface collecting. Most of my finds were brachiopods, some very nice specimens of Leptanena rhomboidalis, Discomyorthis oblata, Meristella, sp., Costistroponella sp., and a variety of R

  18. It was an all day outing on a perfect spring day in Central Upstate New York. Al Tahan and I visited a small private quarry where the Middle Devonian Oatkacreek Formation Mottville Member, part of the Marcellus Shale and the lower Hamilton Group is exposed. It's been about a year since I visited the site which I've been coming to for the past five years and it was Al's first visit. Erosion had broken down almost all of the pieces of shale which covered much of the site on previous visits. However a lot of fossils here, preserved in calcite are weathered free from the matrix and surface collec

    Is this part of a trilobite?

    Hi guys, I am not very good at identifying fossils yet. Its my main goal to find trilobite fossils because I think theyre really neat and I am wondering if these are possibly sections of a trilobite. I dont think there is a lot to go on but I was extremely impressed by the speed and ease that was required to identify my last find (thank you very much Kane!). There are two fossils, one is orange-y and the other is a darker grey and harder to see.
  21. Barely a month had gone by since my last trip to New Mexico and Colorado, but I already had plans for this trip in the works. Primary focus this time, which was a solo trip, was fossil collecting, visiting well known sites that have been on my radar for quite some time. I flew out to Salt Lake City and drove directly to Kemmerer, WY. My first stop there was Fossil Butte National Monument: Here is a view of the visitors center (free admission) and the surrounding barren, but awesome landscape that surrounds it:
  22. First sunny day of the week . Wife and kids getting slowly crazy while I have to deal with a higher than average workload from home. Hum ...time to steal a few hours with the two oldest ones and get back to the Nicollet Fm (ordovician ) nearby. This time Flexys did not make the cut , or none did with all parts intact ( except maybe one found by my eldest) . This Triarthrus Rougensis made my day though , the best (by far ) I found so far . Followed by another promising one later .2 and a half hours well spent! PS: wow , just noticed this is my first post since landing he
  23. Just got back from a trip to Forbes, NSW a couple of days ago. Found some great stuff! But after that we checked out a site mentioned very vaguely in an old paper and were pretty successful! The site which is located near Parkes, NSW has Late Ordovician trilobites and other fauna. From what I can gather most of the species from the site are undescribed(?). Anyway, here are a few of my finds, maybe @piranha could help out with some ID's. Oh and I haven't finished prepping these specimens, but I'll post them when I have, although it may be a while since my airscribe has decided to bre
  24. A while back, @Darktooth and I did a little trading. Somewhere in the mix, he mentioned that his educational outreach (and collection) would benefit from some examples of C. chubutensis. I sent a couple of examples and it seems all that cuspy goodness went to his head. I received a COVID care package from Dave a week or so ago that contained a complete New York fossil trip in a box! I was completely blown away and the objects have given me quite a bit of entertainment. The field-trip-in-a-box was complete with lovely hand written tags, so everything was ready to put right into a large riker bo
