A Day In The Life Of A Eurypterid Collector
COLLECTING EURYPTERIDS
Eurypterids.net
Specimens shown on this page were collected MAY 5, 2002, a day in the life of a eurypterid collector. This was a pretty good day collecting eurypterid and associated remains, parts of a phyllocarid, a nice pterygotid pincer, and three cephalopods.

FOSSIL COLLECTORS COLLECTING  AT A SMALL RIDGE OF VERY RESISTANT WILLIAMSVILLE WATERLIME AT A QUARRY NEAR FORT ERIE, ONTARIO, CANADA
I met a wonderful group of enthusiastic fossil collectors June 6, 2003.  A friend and I were busily digging out a layer of waterlime in search of the elusive eurypterid when in came a caravan of cars and vans from the Deleware Valley Fossil Club
