    Not exactly earth-shattering news but an interesting Devonian period nautiloid has been found during the excation of the foundations of the State University of New York's new science building. Certainly an appropriate location!

    And from the Geneseo weekly news:

    More images of another specimen of Spyroceras are available here.

    :mrgreen: I don't want to appear envious but why is it nothing like that appears when I'm lifting turnips for lunch ?
    though I have found some fossil festooned chalk nodules & partial echinoid remains but not enough to retire on.
