    A big thanks to Austin Hendy and Jorge Velez-Juarbe for providing an enjoyable and educational field trip to see the Stratigraphy and Paleontology Of the Verdes Peninsula. Here’s a pic of Austin at a nice stop where we got to collect in San Pedro. #fossil

    Jack, on your Causeway Road bivalve without an ID (very nice specimen BTW), I would suggest it’s Rhytimya sp. There is a similar specimen from the Fairmount pictured in “Review of Ordovician Pelecypods”, Pojeta, Plate 16, figure 10. That one is R. mickelboroughi (Whitfield). But your Waynesville or Liberty specimen is probably R. faberi (Miller),…[Read more]

    • Bill,

      I looked at the Ohio Geological Survey VII and there are quite a few Rhytimya sp. I think you are correct with your ID. Thanks. Dalve 1948 is not illustrated. What publication and year is the Pope reference?

    Well, the C5 sequence has an abundant number of Treptoceras duseri. This is an orthocone nautiloid that fits your description and photo. Identification from internal molds like this is not foolproof. Using a photo is even harder. Try having a browse of publication USGS 1066-P and compare photos to your specimen. Here’s a link to the downloadable…[Read more]

    Jack, you are thinking of Geniculograptus typicalis. Here’s a close-up photo of another 3D specimen from our website. http://www.drydredgers.org/fieldtrips/trip200410/large/grapto3.jpg

    There was a point in time when the contents of this book was all I knew about the fossils of Cincinnati Ohio, despite living here all my life. This elementary guide is often the starting point for Cincinnati fossil hunters in obtaining vast knowledge from an growing interest in fossils fueled by the good illustrations, identification keys and…[Read more]

    Tom, if you haven’t already, be sure to reach out to the North Coast Fossil Club. (http://www.ncfclub.org/) They may know of some fossil localities near Toledo.

    Yes he did. Ian emailed me a photo of it. Thanks for following up, Jen.

    Hi Ian. @ian-forsythe
    I failed to find your poster on Sunday at GSA. I was looking forward to seeing it. I was thinking it was going to be shown on Tuesday. Is there any way I can read it? You can reach me at [email protected] Thanks!

    That orthocone nautiloid looks fairly complete end-to-end. I think the wide end looks like part of the living chamber. The smaller, perpendicular specimen is likely to be from a separate animal. That’s a beautiful specimen, Ian. It’s a keeper.

    This is now resolved. See you all at GSA 2018 in Indy!

    I was trying out the new MyFossil Android App with this post from my back yard. I was trying to say in my post that “If you live in Cincinnati Ohio, fossil hunting is as easy as stepping out your back door. It becomes more of a matter of trying to find the best fossil.”

    My apologies for not replying sooner. No reply for me means “I don’t know”. At times, these two were thought to be synonymous. I think that Treptoceras is more common and has a wider range. I’ll have to look dig into some siphuncle photos and see if I can tell the difference. Thanks for asking! @jbauer@matthew-croxton
