  2. Cretaceous NJ ID help (crustacean and tooth/spine)

    I just wanted to give an update on this post, I sent the crustacean away to decapod expert Rodney Feldmann and he is convinced this is a rare New jersey lobster, known as Linuparus! It's always exciting to find a species you previously haven't in New jersey! Thanks to all who helped on this and have a great weekend! -Frank
  3. Shark Teeth Trades

    It was a great experience to trade with you
  4. Shark Teeth Trades

    My final trade from this post is complete. In exchange for some Maryland fossils, @will stevenson sent me a plethora of shark teeth and invertebrate fossils from the UK, Belgium, Kazakhstan, and Morocco, including many many extras. Thanks so much, @will stevenson!
  5. Identification help

    Or even if it is a fragment of a femur ?
  6. Nice bird bone from the Zandmotor

    Yeah this is why I'm keeping the date relatively open. And yes your bone appears to be from the same sediments! Mine doesn't have any iron incrustations, but sure seems to have the same preservation. Nice specimen by the way!
  7. 9-20-20 Trip to my little slice of badlands

    Great finds, except for the one that rattles......
  8. Here are some more detailed photographs of some of the finds from Resteigne. The first one in probably my favorite find of the day, which is the block with the Trilobite Pygidium. But besides the Trilo, the block also includes some Brachiopods and some kind of minerals (Pyrite?). The Trilobite pygidium Spinatrypa sp. Brachiopod (not sure on the species yet) One of my other favorite finds is the block of Devonian sea floor with many Brachiopods, Crinoïd stems & Bryozoans. I know some of the Brachiopods are definiatly Spinatrypa sp. but I don't know about the others. Some Spinatrypa sp.
  9. Paratodus benedeni tooth?

    Thank you Troodon, Parotodus benedeni was finaly added to my collection

    Ditto to Jeff's comments!! Looks like the environment is a little drier than the rivers of Florida. I did fly into Denver this summer to go to a Veterinary Conference in Wyoming. But due to Covid, I refrained from contacting you. Hopefully the vaccine AND masks will allow normalcy next year. Keep up the great finds. Mike
  11. Whitby area find; bone?

    I think it's Gyrosteus (giant sturgeon type fish) rather than reptile (happy to be proved wrong though!), hyomandibular or ceratohyal bone from the gill area. Pieces crop up there quite often and have that characteristic coarse texture. Nice chunk!
  12. Identification help

    Thank you Rockwood. Sadly I have no idea where it was found and I know this prohibits a real identification. However, given the size of it is anyone able to give me an idea of what it might be the femur of?
  13. Today
  14. what do you collect? (or keep)

    I collect anything when I’m on the field as I can trade it with people but the only things I keep are vertebrates echinoids ammonites and crustaceans with a main focus on sharks teeth
  15. Trilobite Contest

    Much closer guesses but no cigar!
  16. The first photo's will follow soon! I have just photographed the first bunch of items from Resteigne and I am currently rescaling them so I can upload them to the forum. I'll probably also start a separate topic in the ID section of the forum as I am not entirely within my element to ID certain pieces, especially the corals. Very nice finds, I always love the details on corals once they are polished! My girlfriend has some polishing equipments and she was thinking on cutting and polishing some of the finds as well Thank you, it is indeed only a 1 hour drive away. I normally planned on visiting Barvaux on the same day as we went to resteigne but we ended up spending a lot more time in this quarry than anticipated leaving no time to stop at Barvaux So I have planned a visit to Barvaux and Marche-en-Famenne somewhere in the next few weeks
  17. Paratodus benedeni tooth?

    Nice tooth, BTW thats Parotodus with an o
  18. Nigerien fossil id

  19. ESCONI's Braceville Shaft Mine Trip 9-19-20

    I was thinking the same thing Adam! Still, good on you Ralph @Nimravisfor the large donation of fossils for the folks to find, and thanks for the great photos and report! Looks like a great time was had by all!
  20. Whitby area find; bone?

    Possibly a plesiosaur humerus/femur distal end fragment. Nice find
  21. Whitby area find; bone?

    Just found this at the base of a scree slope somewhere between Runswick Bay and Sandsend (too excited to wait until I’m home to take pictures with a ruler, sorry ) Pretty sure it looks like bone of some sort; can anyone confirm this and maybe identify it? Thanks for looking

  25. 9-20-20 Trip to my little slice of badlands

    Those are some great finds Josh! Love the rattlesnake pics too
  26. Seed or something else?

    Hi, was on a road trip a few weeks ago for work and stopped at a spot where rocks had been excavated along the road. These rocks where full of partial leaf imprints and stems, alongside Trilobites and bivalves. The first pic is of a few partials I found, second pic has the fossil in question and a stem or leaf of sorts. I am not sure of the age as I'm still trying to piece together how there are leaves with the devonian fossilsI'm guessing that the the rocks are from different layers, the fauna bieng middle to late devonian while the Flora is permian in age. Anyway, will not be getting a chance to go out there anytime soon again. What do you think the spherical fossil could be? Thanks
  27. Help identifying fossil - possible petosky?

    There are many mural pores, and tabulae showing in the longitudinal section, so I agree with @Tidgy's Dad that it's a favositid, with what looks like a lot of recrystallisation that obscures a lot of the detail. Mural pores Tabulae
