  1. Tyrannosauripus tooth?

    This is a dinosaur tooth found at Ganzhou of China. Any idea if it is a tooth of Tyrannosauripus? The footprint of Tyrannosauripus has recently been found there.
  2. Plant fossil?

    Hi, this specimen is from Guizhou of China. It is Triassic. Any idea what kind of plant is that? There are not many plant fossils from Guizhou where you all know has a rich collection of of Keichousaurus hui and other Triassic marine reptile fossils instead.
  3. Freshwater plesiosaur material from the Jurassic of China

    Hey everyone Thought I'd share with you this new paper I found on ResearchGate; it basically reports the first discovery of remains of freshwater plesiosaurs from the middle Jurassic of Gansu province (in China). Gao, T., Li, D.-Q., Li, L.-F., and Yang, J.-T. (2019). The first record of freshwater plesiosaurian from the Middle Jurassic of Gansu, NW China, with its implications to the local palaeobiogeography. Journal of Palaeogeography 8:27. Abstract: Plesiosaurs are one of the common groups of aquatic reptiles in the Mesozoic, which mainly lived in marine environments. Freshwater plesiosaurs are rare in the world, especially from the Jurassic. The present paper reports the first freshwater plesiosaur, represented by four isolated teeth from the Middle Jurassic fluviolacustrine strata of Qingtujing area, Jinchang City, Gansu Province, Northwest China. These teeth are considered to come from one individual. The comparative analysis of the corresponding relationship between the body and tooth sizes of the known freshwater plesiosaur shows that Jinchang teeth represent a small-sized plesiosaurian. Based on the adaptive radiation of plesiosaurs and the palaeobiogeographical context, we propose a scenario of a river leading to the Meso-Tethys in the Late Middle Jurassic in Jinchang area, which may have provided a channel for the seasonal migration of plesiosaurs. Keywords: Freshwater plesiosaur, Middle Jurassic, Jinchang, Gansu Province, Palaeobiogeography. Here's the PDF of the article Gao et al2019Freshwater Chinese plesio.pdf Hope you all have a nice day! -Christian
  4. New pterosaur from China

  5. I will be receiving soon what looks to be a large youngshunensis trilobite, while I am aware of fakes from china I'm not sure if specimens of this trilobite like this just have real rough prep work done to them or if maybe there is some sort of carving involved. Any knowledgeable feedback to whether its a keeper or not will be greatly appreciated, always wanted to nab one of these.

  7. Hi I was checking out today the fossils at a fossil and mineral shop and I found another dinosaur egg shell coming from China it was labeled raptor eggshell from China and it also said it was from the Permian period this made me think that it could be fake the owner collects all of the stuff but I was wondering if anybody can help me out with how to indentify a raptor eggshell from China and I don’t have photos thanks.

  9. May I have your view on the authenticity and condition of this egg cluth? It is from Guangdong of China.
  10. What is this?

    I recently bought a collection and everything was marked but this egg. The only info I have on it is that it is from China. Any help is very much appreciated and thanks to everyone in advance
  11. Senile Bovine?

    Just recieved this from a Chinese seller ( might not be originally from there though!) Stated as Pleistocene. Not sure what I am looking at. I have tried comparing with many photos online and can't seem to come up with a good match. Might this be from an "off the normal grid" bovine such as Water Buffalo or oxen or just a very senile animal like bison? Heck, it may not even be bovid at all. There doesn't seem to be a pronounced stylid on the side. Any and all opinions are welcomed.

  13. Hi all, please be careful whenever you purchase Chinese vertebrate fossils or dinosaur eggs, especially turtles and birds. While some of these may look laughably fake, a search on purchase history reveals that these fossils have been sold over and over again. No prize for guessing which auction site these fossils were sold. I notice three devious techniques used by these sellers: 1) Issuing a certificate, claiming it's been examined by experts etc - Certs mean nothing, unless they are provided by actual museums 2) Selling some real fossils - I've been monitoring this seller's listings for years. Every now and then, a real one shows up. His victims may have bought something genuine from him before, and assumed all his listings are good. 3) Selling replicas alongside his fake fossils - By outright proclaiming some of his listings as replicas, this seller creates the impression that he is a responsible seller who would inform people about the true nature of their purchases. "The best lies have an element of truth" Remember, if you aren't absolutely sure of your purchase, post some pics here on TFF. We have experts who would help you if they can. Also, if you need more info about this listings or the seller, feel free to PM me.
  14. Cave Bear???

    Can anyone help me to identify this skull?? It came from China 30 years ago and appears to be a young cave bear but I am not 100% positive. I thought it may be a bear-dog or Hyaenodon type of canid but the snout is too short. A percrocuta was also a thought, but they seem extremely rare. Any information would be gladly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

  20. An online paper is available that will shock you: Wang, J.; Norell, M. A.; Pei, R.; Ye, Y.; Chang, S.-C (2019). Surprisingly young age for the mamenchisaurid sauropods in South China. Cretaceous Research. doi:10.1016/j.cretres.2019.07.006. A late Aptian age for Mamenchisaurus anyuensis and Qijianglong (note that the Penglaizhen Formation that yields the M. anyuensis holotype overlies the Suining Formation) upends knowledge of mamenchisaurid evolution in China because it suggests that mamenchisaurids survived into the Cretaceous. Some workers have suggested that a number of Mamenchisaurus nominal species are not conspecific with M. constructus or M. hochuanensis, so the dating of M anyuensis to the late Aptian is another reason a revision of Mamenchisaurus is long overdue. Does anyone have a preprint of this above-mentioned paper so I can weigh on it in more detail.

  22. Chinese fossil fish nodules

    Went to my property the other day to pick up our camping trailer and couldn't help but go through a couple more boxes in my fossil shed. Found these in a tote with a bunch of Scotia Bluff material. Not sure why they were in that box but made for a nice surprize. Here's the thing, I can not remember the name of these fish, the formation or the age. Nothin. All I know is that I got them from a chinese dealer long ago in Tucson. Any help is appreciated. thank you and I got more in the garage. RB
  23. Machairodus lower jaw?

    Hi everyone! I need help! I Will have this specimens in a few weeks.The biggest one is Machairodus horibilis lower jaw, i hope so. I got these stuff from my friend from China. Also, as u can see there is a lower canine from a Cave Hyena. But it's somehow long and tick for a Hyena canine. I don't know what to think about the lower jaw, it's more similar to canids and Hyenas then to felids. And yes, at the end phalanx of ferret? If someone can help somehow to determine this, that Will help me a lot to know what's the real truth. Thanks guys again! Darko
  24. Carpoid or suggestive fragment?

    I noticed this thing on a plate of hyoliths I received from the Middle Cambrian Zhangxia Fm, Shandong, China. It kind of looks like a carpoid to me, but it may just be a suggestively shaped fragment of some other fossil. Any thoughts?
  25. Notostraca?

    Hey! I recently found this for sale, but I figured it would be good to get an ID and see what you all think before purchasing. It seems to be Notostraca, probably Lepidurus. I seller told me it’s from Yixian Formation (Jurassic), Liaoning, China.
