  1. Hiked up to some Devonian Foreknobs Formation exposures yesterday on a mountain in the Jefferson National Forest in Craig County, Virginia. Found some awesome and beautiful ammonoids, cephalopods, and more!!! Now I’ve just gotta find some trilobites and crinoids...lol Some of the better ammonoids I found in some mudstone: Some of the different types of cephalopods along with some brachiopods: And 2 unknowns, not a clue in the world what these are:
  2. I found this piece by "popping" one of the "dishes" on a slab at Lang's Quarry in Ilion, NY several years ago. In this case, there is a bivalve-like fossil which was suggested to me was a cephalopod. Does anyone know the species of this fossil? I'd really like to learn more about it.
  3. Here are three views of a 9 mm "Peritrochia sp." Girty 1909. It was found at the Lost Creek Lake spillway in Jacksboro. This proves that even a broken, partial fossil is worth taking home. In the first position you see the elaborate suture pattern characteristic of these Goniatites on the outermost whorl preserved. Notice the slight horizontal groove near the bottom edge. As it turns to reveal the next whorl below you can see the siphuncle as a vertical line and the outer edge of a septum, or chamber wall, at the bottom. Turning into the innermost whorl the septum comes into view a

  6. I have been working with Mississippian age nautiloids in Kentucky for the past 40 years. Years ago I found two very complete specimens in the Nancy Member of the Borden Formation in a creek east of Morehead, Kentucky. The one was a small but very complete Orthoconic nautiloid of the genus Michelinoceras sp. which is commonly found in that area. The other was found very close to the other and at the time I thought it was another Michelinoceras sp. Recently I was looking at it and saw the shape was much different. Michelinoceras is very conical and the shape is very round to slightly oval w

    I found these photos in marbles coming from the North West of the Red Sea. Can any one help me in identifying them?? They sometimes look like Orthocone, but I´m not so sure! Many thanks in advance!

  10. This is rather alien to me compared to what I usually find as far fossils, esp in this creek which is mix of Eagle Ford and little bit of everything. Thinking it has to be part of an ammonite but can't visualize it since this is straight and flat. Don't usually see any internal structure so just guessing that's what this is. The colors are awesome, is it nacre or opalized?

    From the album: Minnesota Ordovician Decorah Cephalopods

    A large Endoceras proteiforme. From Decorah shale. Only a little section of the shell remains on the lower half. The segmented part are septum and the smooth part are siphuncle.

    Gomphoceras floydensis

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    The one on the right is positive identify as Gomphoceras floydensis. Rare. Middle is more of a single segment and the right one is a different species, currently unidentified. Seem like cephalopods from Rockford Iowa are on the small side and low diversity of species. Hadn't found one trilobite at all so far sigh.

    Nautiloid Cephalopod Ordovician

    Hello guys! Today I visited antother place between Montreal/ Laval, on the North shore of Montreal. Spectacular place, many fossils. But the mostly found is a nautiloid/ cephalopod. I've seen such speciments already, however on this place there were so many of them, can't compare it with other places that I visited. In addition, other specimens before were spread out of their original position. Here I have all in one place, the original place . all specimens #1, #2 , #3 N3 #4

    Help ammonite id

    I dug these two cephalopods a couple months apart at the same place within the Cretaceous of North Texas and did not know if they were an ammonite or nautilus species. I do think they are part of the same genus though. After more research I thought it could be an oxytropidoceras species. Still not sure what genus or species it is but I'm leaning towards a type of ammonite. The place I found these ammonites at, usually has Mariella ammonites and no other type of ammonite. But these two are the only ammonites from the area I've seen besides Mariella species. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think this is a piece of a cephalopod fossil. It was found in northern Manitoba where the Saskatchewan river runs into lake Lake Winnipeg. Can anyone confirm?

    Help with Identification

    Having recently retired, I'm finally going back to try to catalog some of the specimens I've collected over the years, but have so far not been able to identify. The subject specimen was one collected (to the best of my recollection) back in the 1990's while walking on exposed river bed along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River just south of Quebec City. The specimen is a little over 30 mm long and weighs 30 grams. The distinctive features are the rounded end, flap-like feature folded on the end, and circumferential rings. Below are photos with several views, with the oblique view sh

    Oldest Cephalopod Ever

    Tiny creature (not yet named) had a siphuncle 522 million years ago. Ancestor of all those other cephalopods? https://www.livescience.com/ancient-octopus-relative-fossil.html

    Big ol' ammonite chunk

    I found this ammonite chunk a few days ago in my backyard, and I was wandering what species it is. There are some fossil snail imprints and some other small fossil imprints on this ammonite chunk. There is also a swirl or some kind of shape on the side of the ammonite if anyone can identify that.

    Need help identifying

    Hi everyone. I am new to the group and would like to ask for some help in identifying this fossil. To my eyes it looks like a cephalopod but never seen one this big. Can some one help? I found it along Etobicoke creek. Any help would be much appreciated .
  24. Can anyone identify? Spyroceras maybe?
  25. I am having trouble putting a label on this cephalopod from the Upper Pennsylvanian, Graham formation, Finis Shale member, from Jacksboro Texas. The conch is crushed on the anterior end which distorts the apical angle but the intact posterior end shows an angle of around 12º and the cardinal ratio is about 2. My first thought was bactrites but if that is the siphuncle it appears to be very near but not quite in contact with the ventral wall, which I thought was a requirement for the whole subclass. It looks a little like the “doubtful” genus Cylobactrites with the foldlike ribs and m
