  1. Hi All, I am wondering if anyone can assess the authenticity of this Acadoparadoxides from Morocco? From what I can tell there is restoration on the right eye and maybe margin of the cephalon. Beyond that I think it is real. It does appear to be missing one thoracic segment but I am guessing this is taphonomic. I can take more pics as needed. Thanks for the help.
  2. I would like to use photographs of fossils as part of my digital artwork. I do not want to violate any copyright laws if I later sell the artwork. Does anyone know where I can find free-use images of fossils or does anyone mind sharing their personal fossil photographs with me? I will give credit to you for your photography if I decide to use the images in my work. Fossils of any type and from any time period are appreciated. Thank you!

    †Tuzoia sinensis P'an 1957

    Taxonomy from Vannier et al. (2007, p. 458). Vannier et al. 2006 assume that Tuzoia and the also Cambrian genus Isoxys are possibly representatives of the class Thylacocephala. Revised diagnosis for the genus Tuzoia Walcott, 1912 in Vannier et al. (2007, pp. 458–459): “Large bivalved arthropod (valve length up to approx. 180 mm; Chlupác and Kordule, 2002). Carapace thin, nonmineralized, and relatively flexible, folded dorsally (no true articulated hinge) into two hemispherical valves. Valve outline amplete or slightly preplete/postplete (L:H ratio between 1.3 and 1.6). Straight or sl

    I want to define fossil

    The fossil was found near the Mukhavets River, Belarus, Brest. Length ~ 6-7cm (~ 2.5 inch) whole piece. If I registered here, I will be impudent: you can recommend a book (100 -200 pages), an introductory course in fossils.

  7. Morning all, my second post here after the presentation, and hope i'm doing everything right! Here the tricky question: I have received this piece from Chengjiang, more likely from the surrounding areas of the site. I'm pretty familiar with this fauna (have a lot of specimen, sometimes prepared by me) but when I saw this I was thrilled. The overall structure is no longer than 3cm along the curve, and I haven't touch it for any sort of preparation. Before I'll post it on my Instagram, I would to know better what it is. The shape and the "button"- like dots, circled in green

    Adam's Cambrian

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.

    New Cambrian Lagerstatte

    A new lower Cambrian Lagerstatte from China! They surmised this was a nursery, but will doubtless add to our understanding of the Chengjiang and Burgess Shale fauna. Interesting there was no mention of the Cambrian explosion. https://www.livescience.com/cambrian-paleonursery-haiyan-lagerstatte.html
  11. Taxonomy according to Fossilworks.org. Quote from Zhang et al. 2003, p. 447:” The Chengjiang Lagerstätte yields several well-preserved Early Cambrian fossil assemblages (Zhang et al. 2001) from the Yu’anshan Member of the Qiongzhusi Formation in Yunnan Province, South China, consisting of a diverse suite of arthropods (Shu et al. 1995, 1999a; Hou and Bergström 1997; Zhang 1999; Zhang et al. 2000). One of them, small and relatively rare, was only briefly described based on a few specimens (Hou et al. 1991), and repeatedly considered to be a giant protaspis of a naraoiid by many authors (Fo
  12. So, I'm not sure where this rock is from or when, there is cretaceous to Precambrian rock in the area and it's all buried under glacial debris. I've been removing this thing from the rock, the other pictures may be clues as to what this is?
  13. This is(or are) awesome gigantic Cambropallas from Jbel Wawrmast Formation, Morocco. The largest trilobite measures 6.5 inches long. The smaller one may measure 4 inches if complete. I know that there are a lot of fakes and heavily restored specimens for this type of giant trilobite. I can say this is absolutely real, cause I was not able to find any evidence of restoration or carving, and there are a lot of incomplete trilobite pieces in the matrix. These are quite heavy and large pieces, so none of my stands can support these. I should get a pair of new stands to
  14. I’m wondering if anyone has collected at the Spence Gulch site outside Liberty, Idaho, in the last year or so and would be kind enough to give me a status report. I have a chance to go before long, but random internet opinion seems pretty evenly divided between “great place, lots of fossils” and “bad quality rock, lots of work for little reward.” I’d be grateful for any help/info.

    Pre-Cambrian colision

    My next question is a difficult one. There was a colision . In the beginning I was suspecting a fall. Then I suspected a meteor. And I was almost convinced about meteor. Then, today I visited the place for the 3-rd time and I found that some layers are folded. So if there was a meteor, the layers should not be folded. Therefore - it was a simple colision between South and North platforms. ( or it was between Canadian platform with oceanic shelf. ) In such small place I see a very solid bottom - bed rocks - made of sandstone / possible Potsdam/. First layers - almost no life.
  16. May be a bit of an odd question, but I was wondering what horizons or layers are the most fossiliferous in the Conasauga Formation. I've heard about the Tibbs Bridge site (RIP), but that site exposed a calcareous, light-colored shale from the upper part of the Conasauga. From what I read online it seems that most of the trilobite beds are located in the upper shale layers of the formation, but I was wondering if anyone else knew if the other parts of the formation had anything?
  17. The diameter of the dark colored depression is about 1.5 cm. Around this depression there are only very faintly indicated ring-shaped structures with a diameter of about 4 cm. On the slab there is another smaller impression of a second medusa. The Krukowski Quarry near Mosinee, Wisconsin is well known for abundant ichnofossil impressions of Climactichnites and Protichnites together with hundreds of beached jellyfish. Jellyfish impressions up to 70 cm in diameter were found on several bedding layers, so far the largest jellyfish in the fossil record. The largest recent form, the lion's ma

    Cambrian Stromatolite

    Got the itch to collect and study some stromatolites, so I did some searching and feel that I successfully scratched the itch. I found a section of the Cambrian Copper Ridge dolomite that exposes a plethora of stromatolites of various morphologies. Many of them look as if they are straight out of Shark Bay in Australia, with the characteristic domal structure attached to a thinner holdfast on a hard substrate. Stromatolites are formed over a long period of time in tidal zones by colonies of photosynthetic bacteria and/or algae that form sticky layers that trap sediments and concrete them into

  22. Hello, everyone, these fossils were collected from the basal Cambrian in South China, all of which are organic. But I do not know what are they? Does anyone can identify them. Please see the attachments! Many thanks.
  23. This small fossil is from Chengjiang and was labelled as "Anomalocaris mouth" by seller. He's been wrong before and I'm rather skeptical about that interpretation. Any ideas, anyone?

    Cambrian mystery fossil?

    I ordered this plate of trilobites a while back and just recently noticed something peculiar on the side of the rock, i’m pretty sure this is not a trilobite but it still looks somewhat organic, but i’ve got nothing. Any ideas!

    Georgia Cambrian Mystery Trilobite

    When splitting some extra matrix from the Tibbs Bridge Road exposure of the Middle Cambrian Conasauga Formation I came across this trilobite cephalon imprint. It does not seem to match any of the common trilobites found at the site and I could not find a similar example in the various trip reports other members have posted about past visits to the site. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
