  1. I am not sure if this counts as an official fossil hunting trip, since I just went to my regular beach down the road, but I figure that I am lucky to live near a location where I can find fossils I love. This has been a quiet holiday, so I spent a good part of Christmas Eve at Fort Clinch beach on Amelia Island, Florida, and found these 15 Chesapecten and a few shark's teeth., the nicest of which is a Carcharias taurus with very clear cusps. The grid in the picture is 1 inch / 2.54 cm. At 4"x4" (10 cm x 10 cm), the Chesapecten in the center is in the best condition of the larger ones I've f

    Chesapecten Bivalves SW FL

    I have recently expanded my fossil hunting to collecting and hunting different shells. Growing up in Florida I found it pretty easy to just overlook them and not take notice to how fascinating each one is. I recently found a nectar spot in Nokomis and one in Northport Florida that has quite a few different Scallop fossils. my issue is, I have been looking around on internet and on this page to identify them. There is so much information on this web site I can’t say enough how thankful I am for it. I have also found a study by the Florida Museum of Natural History about different species of

    Chesapecten jeffersonius

    As a graduate of the University of Virginia, I thought it would be cool to add to my collection a fossil named after the founder of the university, Thomas Jefferson. I was disappointed to read that one of the best places to find Chesapecten jeffersonius shells - Chippokes Plantation State Park - no longer allows you to collect the shells there. I had also read that Chesapecten sp. shells can be found at York River State Park, but that Chesapecten jeffersonius unfortunately cannot be found there. Is that true? Are there other sites in Virginia where you can find Chesapecten jeffersonius? With t
  4. OK. I spent Sat on the James River collecting. It wasnt a great tooth trip, only found one sand shark. But its NICE. LOL I did, of course, find plenty of Chesapectens. Jeffersonius is my favorite, so I snagged a LOT of them. I also picked up a number of Madisonius. I think. Thats the first question. These ARE Madisonius, yes?

    First Thought is Whale Rib Parts

    I guess my first thoughts are whale bones. I have found some vertebra and a phalanx down the creek last week. These were buried in the creek wall and I believe in the Yorktown Formation. They are very heavy and have a solid “ring” to them when they touch. They’re on an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper for size reference!

    Unopened Chesapecten Shell ID?

    We were in the creek today and found this Chesapecten Shell that is still closed. We’ve never found one of these with both sides, unopened. Can anyone ID the type of Chesapecten? Is it Madisonious? Thank You!

    Pearl?

    This is embedded in the interior of a Chesapecten shell, pearl or no? It is about 1.5 mm and the shell about 5 inch width. Hunter

    Never identified a fossil before!

    Hello, I am very new to this. I am a bio teacher with no experience in paleontology but I have to teach it! I recently found an intact top and bottom scallop shell off the James River, in Surry county, Virginia. I know it belongs to the Chesapecten genus, but not sure what species it is. Some friends have tried to help but I don’t understand what they are talking about. Possibly found in either the Yorktown formation or Eastover formation. Please help!

    Matoaka Beach - 12-02-18

    Took a trip to Matoaka Beach for the first time today. Alot of bivalves, barnacles, couple pieces of coral, and one snail. Here's a pic! No sharks teeth but I will keep trying! IMG_1322.HEIC
  10. So I've been looking around at the pile in the garage, trying to get rid of some of the junk and taking some photos that I thought you all might be interested in. I think some of you may have picked on my fascination with earbones...If you dont have that fascination keep scrolling....Well, here's one partial example with multiple views that was a little more different than most but I think its a whale bulla. Its preservation is a little different and there is an extra cavity where normally you would have solid bone...just my guess anyways. Also another shot of it on the very left

    James River Weekend - VA

    Mrs. SA2, @MikeR & I guided a trip for 12 along the lower James River in Virginia this weekend. Started out with very iffy weather Saturday morning with 2 foot swells and white caps from an unfriendly westerly wind. She and I were both quite busy tending our boats even when on the beach so we didn't get many photos. Mike was busy helping the folks with IDs and stratigraphy, so he didn't get many either. There were some taken though. Later in the day we did find a very nice, large Eastover Formation slough (upper Miocene). @Fossil-Hound Mrs. SA2 said she "had the feeling" as we
  12. So 2018 has been on a roller coaster of sorts. The east coast was hit with a prolonged cold snap to start the year which froze all the beaches up and most of the Chesapeake Bay too. So there was no hunting at all for the first week and a half of the year. The weather finally broke and i hit the beach i was luck enough to find a nice 2" meg/chub and the tripmaker was a pathological hubbell megalodon i was super stoked. Then the cold came back and once again the beaches froze right back up, so I was back off the beach again. The weather broke and all the ice went away and i hit the beach yesterd

    Dug these out yesterday

    First time i was ever able to dig out the whole shells. Top and bottom on both. Very exciting. Sorry for the "non-technical" terms. I can't seem so upload any more pictures. Just this one. Im new and clueless. Thanks

    Chesapecten santamaria

    From the album: Calvert Cliffs

    Extremely rare C. santamaria gifted from an associate in Maryland.

    Chesapecten madisonius

    These pectens are very common in the Rushmere Member of the Yorktown Formation in cuts and bluffs along certain portions of the Tar River in North Carolina. Many are extremely worn and even crumble to pieces when handles. Specimens with double valves are not uncommon. This specimen is in exceptional shape. The final picture of the 3 specimens is to illustrate the growth of the species. They are all double valves, and range from 1 /4 inch long to 5 5/8 inch long.

    Calvert Cliffs

    Had a phenomenal trip down at Calvert Cliffs on Wednesday with my three month old daughter strapped to my chest. This trip makes up for my failed attempts in March where the sandbars where at an all time high and made it difficult to find anything. The sandbars pushed up from the storms a few months back even helped me to get to some hard to reach locations. Here's some finds and a scouting report for May of the cliffs. Also recovered a nearly perfect decently sized Ecphora gardenae that is still undergoing some preparation work. I'll take a picture of that and post it later along wi

    Chesapecten

    A small specimen of this species, but a nice one. They get quite a bit larger. I have one pushing 160 mm wide but it is in poor shape.
  21. This might prove very easy for more advanced fossil collectors to answer. In 2004, the floodwaters from Hurricane Gaston swept away a large amount of soil and clay from an existing stream near the backyard of our suburban house near Mechanicsville, Virginia, exposing a clay bed littered with numerous fossils. The turritella you see in the picture occurs the most frequently of all our finds, and the small clam fossils are a close second. We've recently started to find more of the kind of scallop fossil in the image, which we guessed was a chesapecten jeffersonius, Virginia's state fossil. I fou
  22. I have some shells I collected from the cliffs off the Tar River that I would greatly appreciate some ID assistance on. I got into books and websites and see they are Chesapecten and probably mostly Jeffersonius... but there are some features I don't know enough about to feel 100% in my research - I hope these photos will be clear enough but I can provide more if not. Any assistance/direction would be great! I have several so I will just number them and hopefully that will make replies easier. 1.
  23. Hello! Has anyone collected from the Windmill Point Member of the St. Marys Formation in Maryland or Virginia? I've collected the Chesapecten scallops for years and would LOVE to find a Chesapecten santamaria and finally fill that major gap in my collection. C. santamaria is common in these exposures but I don't know of any on public property - are there? Has anyone collected on private property - if so would you mind sharing contact info of the person/organization involved? Thanks so much!
  24. Does anyone have a copy/working link to T.G. Gibson's Miocene and Pliocene Pectinidae from the Lee Creek Mine and Adjacent areas? It's paper from C.E Ray's 1987 Geology and Paleontology of the Lee Creek Mine, North Carolina. If so, would you so kindly share with me? According to Lyle Campbell's Pliocene Molluscs from the Yorktown and Chowan River Formations in Virginia, there's some good info and lots of pics of Chesapecten septenarius. Thanks!
