    GSA 2018 - Trilobite Abstracts

    Catch up on the current trilobite research with the abstracts from the GSA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana - November 4 - 7, 2018. Matthew K. Witte - University of Chicago ON THE PHYLOGENETICS OF THE TRILOBITE FAMILY PHACOPIDAE WITH SYSTEMATIC IMPLICATIONS FOR ELDREDGEOPS (GREEN, 1832). Paper Number 13-6 - Session No: 13 T130. Trilobites belonging to the family Phacopidae are of particular interest partly due to their unique schizochroal eyes. Work by Eldredge documenting cephalic and eye morphology within the Middle Devonian Phacops

    No 2018 Fossil of the Year?

    Maybe I missed it during the festivities and holidays over the changing of the years but did we not have a 2018 Fossil of the Year poll? I could only find the previous year polls when I looked.
  9. Hi everyone, Two weekends (11 november) ago I went to the fossil and mineral fair of Geo-Oss. I had gone two years ago too (I couldn't go last year due to personal reasons). I mostly went to do some chatting around and admiring some of the fossils that were on display. I also picked up a few fossils of course. Unfortunately, I was dumb enough to forget to take pictures of the fair! Sorry... About 60-70% of the stands were mineral stands, but the rest was filled with cool fossils. The main person organizing the fair, whom I got to meet 2 years back and had a great co
  10. 2012 Gathering 2013 Gathering 2014 Gathering 2015 Gathering 2016 Gathering 2017 Gathering 1 2017 Gathering 2 Hi everyone, the Singapore Fossils Collector had our annual meet-up recently. As usual, there was food, laughter and lots of new faces! First up, an overview of my room's collections:
  11. The "Fossil Week" of the 5th International Palaeontological Congress is now complete. IPC-6 will take place in 2022. This quadrennial event did not disappoint with 1000+ abstracts on the latest and greatest in paleontological research. They have to wait 4 years so everyone has enough time to read everything! A cornucopia for everyone... Enjoy! ABSTRACTS IPC5 WEBSITE
  12. My family decided to take a few day trips to Delaware’s beaches this summer. We went to a few, and heeding some posts by @I_gotta_rock, I kept an eye out for fossils. I found a few, but three were good enough to show. No one knows which formation exactly they come from, only that they are Paleozoic. Sounds like a good Thesis to me. Anyway here we are, first a worn coral bit, kinda like a petosky stone. .7 inches
  13. FF member @TyRex23 (Tyler) came down for a full week of hunting the Peace River and it's tributaries last week, so we met for 2 of those days to see what we could find. I don't have pictures of his take, so I hope when he gets organized he'll post some of his better finds. Before he came, I prospected a couple spots in the Zolfo Springs area to ensure he had a chance to get some mammal fossils before we went meg hunting. I thought I had a pretty decent couple spots picked out, but overall I didn't do well although I think Tyler got a couple things. Here's my disappointing take for the day.
  14. This is my fossil collection that i've acquired over the last few years. Some i've found my self but most i've purchased. My collection is not neat and most are not labelled sorry. It's a little crammed because i'm low on space. Firstly this large box is full of various fossils that i've decided to not put on display. Lots of bits and bobs. A large ammonite from Morocco, genuine mosasaur jaw and polished orthoceras. At the center back there is a iguanodon vertebrae. Then furth
  15. I took a rather short trip to Zolfo Springs on the Peace River today to prospect for a trip with a guest on Tuesday. I dug in a nice deep limestone hole for a while and came up with this recent find, which I thought might be coyote, but doesn't match the scull that I have. Anyone have any guesses on what it might be? I'm figuring coyote and dog are out.
  16. These 2 items were the only finds of interest on my trip to the Peace yesterday. I'm assuming the vert is mastodon or mammoth, but the other little item is a stumper. I feel like I've seen it before somewhere, but I can't place it. One wing is broken, but I couldn't toss it back before finding out what it is. I'll post the 2nd view in the reply.
  17. I was wondering if this little bone is distinctive enough to get an ID on. The photos are large and since I upgraded my MacBook to High Sierra I can't find an option to choose a smaller size. I'll post the other picture in the next reply. (hopefully)
  18. The winner of the Feb. 2018 IPFOTM goes to... theIsotelus sp. Trilobite from the Middle Ordovician Carters Limestone/Lower Hermitage Formation of Tennessee! Congrats to @Hal!
  19. Hi all, So last Saturday (10 March 2018) came a much awaited day by quite a few Dutch fossil-lovers: the fossil fair of Ede! As always, it was a fantastic event. Granted, not as big as the Tucson show, but then again this fair does aim to have a bit less of a commercial side and more of a scientific approach to fossils (well, the fossil buying and selling is still the biggest part of the fair). Therefore, in addition to the fossil-selling stands, some organizations and museums were also there! Such as: the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, the WTKG (Werkgroep Tertiare en K
  20. The winner of the Feb. 2018 VFOTM goes to...The Saurodon Fish Jaw from the Cretaceous Atco formation of Dallas, Texas! Congrats to @John S.!
  21. Beautiful day to be out and so much nicer without a wet suit. Couple of interesting things today, this find is my favorite. !/2 gallon Clorox bottle issued from 1940 to 1944. Pretty good shape for being in the river for so long, but I was in a pretty deep hole and it was pretty far down. The next best is another complete Abertella dengleri Echinoid. This one has more matrix on it, but still pretty cool. I'll be asking Roger Portell at UF whether he's interested in another example in their collection. (I should have waited until it dried completely before taking the pi
  22. I had a rather unspectacular trip on the Peace yesterday and I'll blame it on high water from the weekend's rain. Any excuse will do at this point. I did find this rather peculuar tooth that looks like a pre-molar but does not look similar to the cow or bison pre-molars that I have. I originally thought it might be a recent tooth, but now that it's drying, I'm not so sure. I'd appreciate help with an ID.
  23. Once again it's time for the Paradoxides to dust off the top hat and ring in the new year. I'm eagerly looking forward to another great year of spectacular fossil treasures at TFF. Happy New Year 2018!

    Tuscon Show 2018

    Hello, I'm from Canada and looking to attend the Tuscon for the first time in 2018. I'm interested primarily in Dinosaur fossils so I'm hoping someone could let me know the best dates to go and take a look and perhaps a recommendation to the best part of town to book a hotel? Really any information would be helpful. Thanks!
