  1. Help needed with shark teeth

    Hello, I went out collecting shark teeth at the beach near Knokke (West-Flanders, Belgium). The teeth found in Knokke are from Paleogene and Neogene period. I only took those which I think are still pretty good preserved for determination. I tried myself for putting names on it but I think I'll need help anyway Someone who can help me out with my sharkies? 1) Sylvestrielamia teretidens or Striatolamia macrota? 2) Physogaleus secundus 3) Brachycarcharias lerichei? 4) Sylvestrilamia teretidens? 5) 6) Lamna nasus or Odontaspis hopei? 7) Striatolamia macrota?
  2. It has been a while since we went to my favorite hunting spot near Chimay in Belgium, so I was realy eager to go back when we got there we had a little surprise, the whole back of the quarry was transformed in a motor cicle trail, apparantly this sunday there wil be a race and a lot of the bikers were prospecting the trail on foot in preparation of the race. luckily this didnt hinder us on our search, and this opend even opportunities since they dug through some of the stoone piles to make the trail thus revieling new material to go through, although we were careful not to dammage the trail. my first find was a strange large nodule covered in mud, at first vieuw it looked to be a big goniatite, and since it was found near the car I directly put it in the trunk without giving it further ispection. after looking on the sides of the new tracks we went to the big scree where we usually hunt, the heavy rains from the past few weeks cleared a lot out and we did find a few very well preserved goniatites. On the top of the scree pile Natalie found a huge specimen: a goniatite of around 40cm an not far from it I found a 2nd large one . we had a very sccesful field trip today with great wether conditions ( mabey a little to hot ) and excelent finds. my biggest surprise was when I drove home, I stopped at a self carwash to clean of the mud of the big specimens with a high pressure cleaner. The first mud coverd nodule that I put in the car wasn't a goniatite, but a nodule with 3 nautiloids on it, 2 incomplete, but a big one in the center. A vieuw on the race track: A toad hiding in the rubble. Natalie at the spot where she found the big goniatite: the huge specimen she found: and a 2nd one : A lot of life in the pools in the quarry: A realy nice Manticoceras sp waiting for me more shales and limestone to go through: A stop for water and snacks after the hunt, and of course a lot of local beers on sale "Chimay" beer: the large specimens after the high pressure cleaner: the surprise Nautiloids after the mud was removed: I still have alot of unpacking to do and prepp work in the next few days. I'll post updates in this post.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm very new to everything to do with Fossils, so bear with me. Recently i went to Antwerp, Belgium to look for some shark teeth. I found a few teeth in about 3 hours of siving. Even though most were broken, i'd like to be able to identy atleast the whole ones. I'd gladly appreciate any help i can get! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
  4. With the Belgian Asociation for Paleontology we made an excursion to the quarry at Soignies. The rock exists out of mixing layers of hard limestone and softer claystone. The quarry is rich in carboniferous fauna with corals, brachiopods and two species of trilobites. When entering the quarry we were welcomed by a young peregrine falcon who was flying next to the high stone wall, which was awesome. It was beautiful weather and the quarry contains a variety of fossils. I'm happy I was able to collect a diversity of organisms that represent the Tournaisian periode. I also found more trilobites on this day than in my whole carreer as a fossil hunter... I found exactly two pieces Caninia sp. (Michelin, 1840) Cummingella belisama (HAHN, HAHN & BRAUCCKMANN, 1985) Leptaena analoga (Phillips, 1836) Michelina favosa (Goldfuss, 1826) Calcite? Cummingella belisama (HAHN, HAHN & BRAUCCKMANN, 1985)
  5. Hi everyone! I recently acquired some dolphin & shark teeth, but they weren't ID'd so I was wondering if some of you might be able to help me out if possible. The first are a set of small dolphin teeth found in Hoevenen, Antwerp in Belgium (Miocene, 15 - 10 mya) And I was wondering if they could be ID'd to down to genus? I've read Eurhinodelphis is a common find and that there are quite a few more named and unnamed species to be found there. The other fossils that I hoped to be ID'd are 5 tiny shark teeth from Oosterzele (Lede formation), Belgium (Eocenen, Lutetian, approx. 44 million years old) I've searched this website as they has a database with I believe all the species found there, but I am not confident and skilled enough to ID them properly. http://users.skynet.be/belgiansharkteeth/Lede formation/Oosterzele set.html My best guesses are that the first 3 teeth belong to the same species and the most common at Oosterzele, which are worn down Otodus auriculatus teeth. As for the other teeth I don't really know, so I really would appreciate some help and input. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hello, Yesterday we went on a fieldtrip to the carbinoferous of Soignies Belgium, see other topic: I had the luck on my side and found 2 shark teeth. Helodus and/or Psammodus? So this morning i started the preparation I forgot to take pictures at the start of the prepp of this one There was only a little glimp to see at this one, so i was pleasantly surprised The second one (it's a huge one) i started but not finished yet
  7. Bactrites sp.

    I've been cleaning up a few boxes with devonian fossils from the past few months and came around this nice little fellow. I cleaned him up and gave him a paraloid treatment to preserve the pyrite. It is a complete specimen of a Bactrites sp. from the Matagne shales ( Frasnian, late Devonian ) from Belgium, both phragmocone and body chamber are preserved. They are a little unusual, as the do not belong to the nautiloids as his first appearance might suggest but they have their own subclass and are considered to be the ancestors of the ammonids ( they have a ventral syphuncle like all the ammonoids ) Fragments of them often pop up from the shales, but I rarely find them complete. This one is going in the display cabinets
  8. Devonian cephalopod collection

    I finaly got around putting all my best cephalopods specimens that I collected over the past 4 years in the frasnian of southern Belgium on there place in the cabinets. They all come from the same location. (except an orthocone and a receptaculites from the same age but from a different spot ) most of it has already been posted in individual posts, but this gives an overal vieuw of the part of the collection on display. Enjoy al the Manticoceras, Crickites, Tornoceras, Bactrites, Orthocones and more

    Somniosus Antwerp Belgium
  19. This weekend we had a quick stop near the city of Mons in the south of Belgium. It is not commonly known that in some forrests in this area are ancient quarries of Maastrichtian phosphatic chalk, not all are accessible but with a reasearch on old maps some of them can be found with a little effort you can clear out a spot on the ground and search for a multitude of small fossils. we only stayed 2 hours, but we did find our fair share of tiny but beautiful brachiopods, bryozoans, shark teeth, dentaliums, bellemnite fragments,... . @Tidgy's Dad , you'll like those little critters and even a few teeth and an echinoid spine:
  20. Last weekend we made a trip to my favorite Devonian hunting spot. As usual we found a few goniatites, but apart from this we found a lot of smaller fossils like brachiopods, crinoids and even a bivalve. and a few other nice surprises. The small bivalve: glyptohallicardia sp. 2 valves and pyritised, only a few mm wide with bot halves preserved. a very nice crinoid calyx a tiny brachiopod ( Lingula ) One of the best finds of the day was a fish tooth, I’m still unsure on the species, but I think something in the area of a Euchondrocephalid like Helodus. It the my oldest tooth in my collection Still, I did find an even better fossil , I’ll let you speculate on what this might be, but for now it is packed in the trunk of my car and I’m going to drop it off to the local institute Halfway on the way back home we spotted a construction site with a little bit of chalk coming out of the ground, we stopped for a prospection and came back with a few incomplete echinoids and 2 belemnites . So it is always worth to stop at an interesting looking spot
  21. Some of my best fossils from antwerp

    These are some of my best and biggest teeth from antwerp Show me yours
  22. Carboniferous unknown

    Hell All I was going through some micro-matrix from the quarry in Soignies when I found this tiny object. I'm not sure it's a fossil but I wanted to check and it seems to be too symmetrical to be geologic. The piece is 2,5 mm in size. It's found in marine deposits togheter with crinoid parts, trilobites... It's from the Tournaisian (Carboniferous). What do you all think? Picture one shows one side and the second picture the opposite side. It's round and nearly perfectly symmetrical. Thanks already
  23. Today we had a field trip with the "Lithos" geology club at my favorite hunting spot. Although the day started with freezing temperatures, the sun quickly rose the temperatures during t morning and gave us a beautiful day. the last time I visited the quarry the finds were disapointing due to the lack of activity in the quarry, but today we were lucky and the past week a new acces road was being dug to the side of the quarry, straight through the Matagne slate. It didnt take long before I found my first fossils, at first a few halve goniatites, but after a while a complete large specimen and a nautiloid that I had never seen before at this locaton. we searched further in the quarry where we found the spot where the rest of the slate was dumped, resulting in a couple extra goniatites, one of them was an exquisite specimen and a 2nd nautiloid. Note that al the goniatites this time weren't Manticoceras specimens, but an other Gephuroceratinae: Crickites sp. they differ from the former with a more bulbous shape and large size ( up to 30cm in diameter ) In the afternoon we prospected the usual scree piles at the back of the quarry where we found a multitude of small pyritised cephalopods and I even found a broken nodule with very rare placoderm remains. Natalie also found a large and complete Crickites sp. at this spot This day turned out to be one of my most productive days at this location.
  24. Big manticoceras prepp

    Yet again a Manticoceras prepp my last few preppjobs were very succesful, and inspired by what @Ludwigia did on a larger one that I sent him, I tried to prepp one of my larger Manticoceras specimens. I tried a few new tricks to prepp this one, although the living chamber got dammaged, I decided to remove even more of the living chamber to show more of the inner shell with suture lines. It turned out quite well: Manticoceras sp. diameter 16 cm Frasnian ( late devonian ) Chimay area ( Belgium ) as found: ( top left specimen ) removed from the large chunk of matix: ( and glued back together, not everything went acording to plan ) during prepp: the end result:
  25. Manticoceras sp. (Hyatt 1884)
