    Trilobite hypostome ID

    Any idea what species of trilobite this comes from? (Or correct me if I’m wrong in my assumption that it is a trilobite hypostome) Tully, NY
  2. A find at Tully NY the other day was bizarre compared with the usual stuff. Looks like a fish scale to my eye. Image was first hit on Google for images of “Devonian fish scales”. Example D and E look similar.
  3. Having struck out over an hour, I decided to turn over “just one more” slab, and bam! Nearly had a heart attack!

    More unidentified MC fossils

    So we have yet another unidentified mazon creek fossil. I see two possible specimens here but I’m not convinced either are proper fossils or even what they could be. The larger one looks like wood to me, and the smaller one looks darker and oddly shaped. I first thought maybe a flat worn?

    Today I went down to fossil hunt in Tully, New York. I stumbled across this and thought it was a horn coral, but I hadn’t been finding any corals. I had been finding a bunch of crinoids so I was considering a crinoid calyx, but I still had no clue. Any insights are greatly appreciated!!!
  6. UPDATE: August 20, 2013 - A new site for Wattieza - the world's oldest known tree Since posting this, the debate about "orthocone" versus "Devonian tree" has been settled. The Devonian tree experts have weighed in and confirm that these are Devonian tree shoots. They were growing in a swampy shallow marine environment similar to how modern mangroves grow. Since our original discovery - which represents an entirely and previously unknown site for Devonian Wattieza trees - my wife and I have collected more than a dozen separate fossils including some with surrounding substrate, from this sit
  7. I just emailed Secretary of State Jesse White, urging him to consider a Tully Monster/Mazon Creek specialty license plate for Illinois. If you think this is a good idea, please send him a message as well (he's got a great Facebook Page, and you can contact him here: http://www.facebook.com/jesse.white.14203?fref=ts)... Feel free to send him this letter: Dear Secretary White, First, keep up that great work - my family and I are grateful for all you do for Illinois. Also, the Jesse White Tumblers are the highlight of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which we look forward to seeing every
  8. I found this guy in a lump of Tully limestone that had broken and weathered out… the rim was visible above the matrix, so I knew it was a big one, and on the other side it was peeking through, though there was no way to tell for sure it was the same fossil. At home, I tapped lightly on it with the handle of a screwdriver and the matrix slid off. I flaked as much as I felt comfortable off, but the remaining piece sticking out is much harder than the rest was and I have neither the confidence nor the tools to take it off at the moment. But it looks pretty cool to me as is I thought it may hav

    Well Articulated But What Is It?

    My wife found this very well articulated fossil that looks like a bivalve internal - found in the Tully formation (Devonian) in central New York. Would appreciate help with an I.D. This piece is very striking and is going on display in my office. This is how it looks in my office, on the shelf - as you can see, it's a large piece and very artistic:
  10. DEVONIAN BRYOZOAN or PLANT or SOMETHING ELSE? We were searching for trilobites (will post our finds soon) - and were removing large slabs of shale from the substrate at the lowest section of a slope-shaped Devonian shale formation. I cracked open a slab of shale to find this stunning branch-shaped bryozoan - is this a plant or bryozoa or something else? Can anyone tell from the visual clues and morphology? Shown here are the full shale piece with the covering piece also shown, and some closeups - the long main piece is about 14 centimeters long - the accompanying piece on the left is the
  11. WHY ARE THESE DEVONIAN MARINE SHAPED LIKE FERN LEAVES? These fossil marine creatures were found on our trip to our favorite Tully formation site in central New York and they look like Neuropteris leaves, although they have to be a marine creature because they are on a very large (18 inches long) rock covered with marine fossils. Will post more after I clean it up but wanted to get these online so someone can take a crack at identification. We were lucky this trip to find three of these small fossils with very delicate features, preserved in the rock, and this is one of them. There are

    Plant, Creature Or Radial Patterns?

    Devonian Radial Structures from Tully Formation (NY) This is a radial patterned fossil I collected during our 4th of July trip to Tully, NY. Would appreciate input as to whether these radial structures are random, marine creature, or plant. In one closeup, there appears to be some branching. I included full view and closeup images to help with the ID. Since we found some fossils that appear to be Devonian tree shoots in what is mostly a shallow marine environment this could be a creature, or plant, or just a random pattern in the rock. I was hoping some of you could spot some clues to so

    Are These Crinoid Pinnules?

    Are these crinoid pinnules? My wife (the one in our family with the "fossil eye") found this on August 10 on our trip to central New York - we were looking in a very low strata (about 20 feet lower (deeper) than the Devonian "Tully limestone" strata) - this lower strata was a thick (15 foot) layer of very hard blue-grey and orange rock (lots of iron in the shale). There were very few fossils in the layer, a few shells and crinoid stems. We had given ourselves 10 more minutes and I told Nancy, "Let's try to find something really special before we go." A few minutes later she came up to me a
  14. Two Nautiloid/Ammonite Shaped Fossils During our 4th of July fossil trip I was looking for something a bit different and found these two nautiloid shaped fossils. One appears to be a large ammonoid which is poorly defined, and the other is a smaller ammonoid impression in shale. Would appreciate any comments.
  15. 4th of July - Trip Report (sneak preview) Just got back from our 4th of July fossil-fishing trip - will do a full trip report soon but in the meantime here are a few quick pix of our trip. We went to Tully NY and found a few fossils but fairly notable - hopefully getting identified in the Fossil ID section. Nan found 2 trilos at Tully, then we went fossiling and fishing at Lake Cayuga and spent half a day collecting lots of trilobites at a company-owned site where they give permission to collect. Here's a very quick preview: The first pic shows Nan with a trilo found at our normal T
  16. 1. Any ideas what this Red Hill fragment might be? I just discovered this in the red shale from our Red Hill trip in June. This is an odd but well defined fragment from the 361 million year old Devonian site where tetrapods crawled onto land - not sure if this is shell material or part of a Devonian fish - about 1 cm - any ideas? 2. Is this a trilobite or shell? (Devonian/Mahantango/Juniata County PA) - about 5cm long: 3. I previously posted this but since found this oblong shell in a reference book - believe it is the bivalve Nuculites - I identified this bivalve after posting -

    Trilobite Pygidium?

    This is a fossil from our Tully NY trip - is this a trilobite pygidium (tail section)? Would appreciate help confirming this. Thx. By the way, we're still examining our fossils and finding new and unexpected things. We don't have a lot but what we have is fairly dense and sometimes we find that we focused on one side of a rock with a nice fossil but overlooked the other side which had an even nicer find!
  18. This is a "first look" at a few of the interesting specimens we collected last week at our visit to Tully, NY. The owner of the property was kind enough to give us permission to do some collecting so we gave it a concerted effort and these are just a few of the dozens of samples. Here is a list of samples included here (more coming soon) - Note - those items that are tentatively identified/confirmed are updated with the ID: 1. Crinoid and Crinoid Disk - this is a beautifully articulated 7 centimeter long crinoid stem which Nancy found attached to the shale substrate exactly as shown in the
  19. Here are a few perplexing fossils from our recent Tully NY trip. Any suggestions? T1a and b. Some sort of X shaped matrix. T2. A Nautiloid shaped fossil/pattern - about 1 cm in size. T3. Iron filled patterns - plants or corals or...? T4a-c. Something dark lurking in the shale. Maybe a curled up trilobite?
  20. On the way back from Tully NY, we stopped briefly to look at a roadcut about 45 miles south of Tully - the shale is grey and exceptionally hard. Didn't find any distinct smaller fossils, everything seemed indistinct and not well defined - I turned over a block of shale and discovered a "large branching fossil" that is 15 inches long. Part of the main stem is broken off horizontally along the stem. I outlined the shape in image 1.4 with a black broken line. This is our largest fossil to-date and was an unexpected discovery. UPDATE (7/15): The consensus is that this is the filled in "burro
