    I just donated, to the Paleobotany Division of the Yale Peabody Museum, Devonian seeds from southern New York.

    I just attended my first Summer Symposium at the Museum of the Earth, Ithaca, New York where I provided a poster on “Prehistoric Pittsford” and donated a few more flats of eurypterid material from the Tastings Site (Pittsford, N.Y.). The symposium was well attended July 29th and the following day was field trips to area Devonian sites led by Profs. Carlton Brett and Gordon Baird.

     

    • Wow! Thank you for sharing, @samuel-ciurca! Sounds like a great symposium. I bet the field trip was terrific with Carl co-leading. He is such a character! 🙂 If you have any pictures from the field trip, we’d love to see them in the forums.

    SALVAGE PALEONTOLOGY: Many years ago, I collected rare fossil assemblage from the Silurian Maplewood Shale in the Genesee River Gorge at Rochester, New York. The unit is almost impossible to collect from due to rapid decomposition of the shale. But, because of a fresh exposure of the shale, I was able to collect rare (probably new) crinoids, cephalopods, phyllocarid parts, lingulids, etc. These will be donated to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History where they will be available for study.

    Nothing much new – just going through basement fossils from the Maplewood Shale here in Rochester, New York and figuring out how I’m going to get them to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History to get preserved so researchers have access to them for study.

    Nothing much – I’m writing an article on eurypterids for the MAPS Digest 2017. Just started it.
