Hi everyone, recently I took a trip out to upstate New York in search for eurypterid and trilobite fossils. The first spot I took a look at was in Herkimer, where lots of Eurypterids and Stromatolites can be found. Whilst there, I made my best fossil find to date. A partial Eurypterid! After this spectacular find, I made my way up to Utica to check out a spot that I had found multiple Triarthrus beckii heads and pieces, along with a ton of marcasite-diseased cephalopods. Unfortunately when I reached the spot it was completely flooded with water. Oh well...
Found this near Utica, is it a trilobite head? The area has tons of triarthrus heads and nautiloids, but nothing as big as this. Unfortunately this is the best photo I can get at the moment as I stupidly misplaced the possible head. Also included is a fossilized sea shell, if anyone knows what species it belongs to that'd be great.
Hi everyone, I recently took a trip down to New York for fossil and mineral hunting and I found this cephalopod(?) fossil on a Utica road cut. Any ideas on species or if it is a cephalopod? A friend said it could be pyritized, but I'm not sure.
