  1. I will be receiving soon what looks to be a large youngshunensis trilobite, while I am aware of fakes from china I'm not sure if specimens of this trilobite like this just have real rough prep work done to them or if maybe there is some sort of carving involved. Any knowledgeable feedback to whether its a keeper or not will be greatly appreciated, always wanted to nab one of these.
  2. I've been tardy on making a report on a three-day dig at Penn Dixie with @Malcolmt. We had a real hoot. It all began when Malcolm picked me up from the train station and we sailed through the border as we were lucky to have a Homeland Sec official who recognized Malcolm from the May Dig with the Experts. A border guard who collects fossils? Awesome! We definitely put in our efforts. We joined up with @JamesAndTheFossilPeach and @DevonianDigger to start slabbing out rocks. I can say that our area was not the best as the matrix was brutally hard and not yet subjected to any weatherin

    Local trip

    This morning I made a trip to a local spot. Wenlockian. Gravicalymene celebra, measures 4cm This one was difficult to work with, as dolostone always is. Ommokris obex cephalon, which turned out to be partial, and a small ventral calymene. The arrow points to the tongue-like protuberance which I was able to extract in one piece and glue back on, giving this trilobite a gargoylesque appearance. And last but not least, a mystery find...

    Good spots for finding fossils in Kentucky

    Okay so I am a noob basically in fossil hunting. I am more of a living animal guy but minerals and especially fossils are a side passion that I would absolutely love to get more into. I have my own mediocre collection. My proudest piece is a trilobite which I bought for $5. I can’t really afford to buy all my fossils plus finding them is always fun. I have a decent collection of corals. Anyways now that I got the background out of the way. I need advice on where to look in Ky. Mainly the Jackson Purchase area as that’s where I’m located and currently limited to. I find most of my corals at the
  5. Hi gang, I'm working fervently to prepare a post about the astounding time I had at Fossil Mountain in Utah during my fossil run back in July. (Will take me months to process and identify all these samples from four states.) I found a few partial trilobites at the upper layer of the Lehman formation, but I'm having difficulty identifying them. I freely admit I'm exceedingly weak at trilobites ID. these aren't the best pictures or even the best specimens, but I was there solo and the scree around the cliffs was pretty unstable so I erred in the side of cauti
  6. As my life in college is imminent (I head to Milledgeville Thursday), I wanted to fit in one last pre-college trip to my favorite bug spot (An idea that was really given life when I heard about a Schwimmer paper that got into PALAIOS about what may be the oldest nesting behavior ever discovered (https://www.georgiasfossils.com/new-2b-a-trilobite-nest-in-georgia.html)). I can say with confidence that yesterday scored in the upper tier of my trip list to the site. I arrived later in the day than I usually would (got there around 6:00 or something), and the river was once
  7. Hey everyone! It’s been a crazy busy June, July and beginning of August for me! I just finished moving into my house and I just got married on August 9th so my life has been a tornado. As a result I haven’t been able to comment, participate and keep up with all you fine folks on the forum like I usually do. I was still able to get out collecting here and there and I met up with fellow forum member @DrDave and did some exploring for the lower Devonian eurypterid Erieopterus. I won’t report on that until I have something to share. I think me and Dave found the right ho
  8. Hi all, My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to New York State sometime in September, and although her main motive might be shopping, mine is - you guessed it - fossils! Does anyone know of a place on could find Olenellus or Elliptocephala in New York? I know they can be found around Albany, but I can't find any obvious outcrops... Aside from where to find Lower Cambrian trilobites, any other suggestions regarding great fossil outcrops in eastern New York are much appreciated! Cheers, Marc

    Morrocco Trilobite Identification

    I bought this morrocco Trilobite from an antique shop recently, and I have had a tough time identifying it. I believe the cephalon might be broken, so that complicates matters. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. I have just returned from my first visit to a new fossil locality in the Northern Territory, central Australia. The location is around 400km north-east of Alice Springs along some rough dirt roads and once reached, runs for about 10km along the side of the road. When visiting the location today one finds themselves in the very center of Australia and a landscape of flat desert and scrub land, about as far from the sea as possible. In the middle Cambrian the site was very different and home to a vast shallow sea filled with ancient life. Arriving in the late afternoon we set up camp

    Millard County Hunt

    I’m going to U-Dig, the surrounding area and Cowboy pass in Utah Late September. Let me know if you’d like to go. This is some of what I’ve found there but I have found so much more.
  12. Last week, I made some incredible trips with my kids to the middle Cambrian U-Dig site, the Fossil Lake lagerstatte in Wyoming, and a muddy, rained-out attempt at the Late Cretaceous in Colorado. This was our first time visiting all of these sites - such amazing times! Here are some pics starting with Utah. My best find, a triple carcass Elrathia kingii Fossil Lake, first started splitting slabs in the Green River formation. This is where we were working. A large plate with three Knightias and a Diplomystus. Later we cut the plate do
  13. Tim (Fossildude19) and I got together Monday the 1st for the third time this year to head up to Central New York, an over three and a half hour trip from Southeastern New York where I live. The weather was bright, sunny, and warm in sharp contrast with our last trip there in early May for the TFF gathering when it was cold and raining. Instead of going straight to Deep Springs Road Quarry, both our favorite collecting site, we decided to stop first at Briggs Road Quarry, a somewhat smaller quarry with a slightly older Middle Devonian marine fauna- the Upper Ludlowville Formation. Some excellen

    Some of my collection

    Hello gang, As promised this is where I will share specimens from my personal collection, my grandfather's collection, and the collection that was donated to the university I work for. The latter is interesting as it is literally boxes of rock and fossils, with no information and my university does not have a geology or paleontology department. I'll be updating it every so often. Enjoy! NOTE: Some of the donated items have old school "labels" on them. If you see initials or such that you recognize, please PM me, as I am doing my best to properly catalog the
  15. Hey everyone, This past weekend I was out in Buffalo, NY for my bachelor weekend. My brother planned a fun fishing/hiking/fossil weekend at an air b&b on Lake Erie in wanakah. We had the house from May 30th to June 3rd. Buffalo is like my Mecca. I need to go there at least once a year and get back to my roots where I first starting being fossil crazy. I did some form of fossil hunting every day. I came out to buffalo early and stayed late to get extra time in! One major highlight from the weekend would be 3 pygidiums and a cephalon w/ 3 body segments of the rare pseudodechenell
  16. hafa adai, I'd really like to buy one or two of those detailed trilobites with spines, appendages and all, either Russian or Moroccan. I see prices all over the map, and have observed a few really bad fakes. I'm sure that there are also a lot of really good fakes (hence the wild price differences). Can anyone recommend a checklist/things to look for and/or a reputable dealer (preferably one that doesn't charge mortgage-level prices)? I don't want to keep bothering folks with repeated queries of Is this one good?" "How about this one?" I've read a numbe
  17. The Confusion Range and the House Range sit in Western Utah. The House Range is farther east closer to Delta, Utah than the Confusion Range. Parts of the Confusion Range are basically on the Utah-Nevada border. Both mountain ranges though have spectacular fossils. The House Range is basically all unfaulted Cambrian age layers and fossils pop up in several of the rock layers there. The Confusion Range, though, is broken up by many faults and everything from the Cambrian to the Triassic is present. Here's a short stratigraphy section marked with the layers we visited. We w
  18. Fossil hunt at St Leon Indiana today. One inch square for scale. 8 Flexicalymene. One so small I can't even believe I saw it. Some mini brachiopods, some small horn coral and some gastropods.

    Sites in Ohio

    Hey everyone, I'm touring colleges in Ohio from tomorrow to Tuesday and I wanted to know if there would be any opportunities to go fossil hunting in areas nearby the colleges I'm looking at. I'll be touring them in this order- -Wittenburg University in Springfield, OH -Denison University in Granville, OH -Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, OH -The College of Wooster in Wooster, OH Let me know if there are any good sites that would be accessible in these areas. Thanks, PN
  20. It was a planned family get together at my sister's ranch in Kentucky to celebrate my father's 90th birthday. I was travelling from Southeastern New York by car. Made it to Harrison, Ohio the first day, right on the border with Indiana. Next morning, weather was pleasant and I was out to the famous St. Leon road cut, a place that I've wanted to visit for years. Finally made it there. Spent the entire day. Despite the site's fame, didn't see another collector and except for one brief shower the weather was perfect though a little on the warm side. I explored the entire exposure though the best
  21. Last year I got a call from my friend Gary. I have collected with him a few times and I have volunteered to help him with educational activities that he runs for middle and high schoolers many times over the years. He was wondering if I could go on a paid dig with him to a quarry near Rome, NY famous for triarthrus trilobites with soft tissues preserved. The deal was we each pay a fixed price, but we get to keep up to five trilobites each. Prepping could be provided for an additional fee. Other fossils we find were free to keep, but the dig owner reserved the right to keep exceptionally large

    Orygmaspis spinula trilobites

    You know I'm feeling better when I'm hitting me auction sites again. Just picked up this nice I will death plate with about 14 Orygmaspis spinula trilobites and a couple Kendallina sp. Late Cambrian. Canada. McKay Group Formation British Columbia The trilobites are mostly 1/4 inch. The matrix is 2 1/2 inch by 3 1/2 inch. I'm not sure what it is but I usually prefer multideath plates of trilobites vs single trilobites. I don't always buy on that way because multi displace always cost more.

    Ummm what is it?

    Hi. i recently purchased the “little pile of stuff” in the for sale section. And as I was looking over the slab I’m finding “heads” off of 5 trilobites (you can see one on upper right corner of the picture) and I’m getting more and more excited when I notice a discoloration on the side. So I carefully split it there. At first I’m thinking “oh cool! A leaf!” But as I’m looking at it I notice the strange structures right at the edge..now I’m not so sure anymore. What the heck did I luck into?

    Finding Cambrian Trilobites!

    Hey TFF Members! I was able to do something very different from the normal Florida fossil hunting the other day. On the way up to Michigan for my Mother's wedding I stopped in Northern GA to hunt for Trilobites! I was saying the age wrong throughout the video, I thought they were Devonian. But turns out they are actually Camrian... even better! Hope you can check out the video when you get a chance. I had an amazing time doing this!

    My collection

    Hello all, I recently saw a whole lot of collections on this forum, and they were all beautifel. Now I cleaned up my room (what's a hell of a task to me, I spended 8 hours) and I deceided to take pictures of the nicest part of my fossil and mineral collection. It's by far not as nice as most members here, but I still have decades to get a nice collection . It's a bunch of everything older then the cenozoicum, because I find it hard to choose what group of fossils I want to collect, trilobites or dinosaurs/ reptiles. Dinosaurs are pretty hard to get here without paying high import a
