  1. Hello, Anyone see any misgivings with this? 15 CM , from south of france. Thanks for the help
  2. Hi everyone, I found this two fossils in Berriasian marl, in the Chartreuse mountains in France. I'm a bit struggling to identify them, I would be happy if somebody in here could help me. Thanks a lot for your help ! Arthur.
  3. We are currently looking for rare rare Ammonites from Courcelles / France like Oxytropidoceras and heteromorph ones could be unprepped but must be complete and (if unprepped) possible to be in great condition after prepp (I know thats always a risk) PM if you like to offer some, thanks

    Coral or not coral ?

    I wondered what could be that little one (about 1 cm), i found last year in the Bathonian of Normandy. A coral, maybe a sponge ? I've took the best photos i could.

    ammonites.fr shuts down

    One of the really best websites about cretaceous and jurassic ammonites has been removed from the net, www.ammonites.fr This was always an inspiration to compare own finds and determine them. I do not really know why, have heard some stories but did not talk to Herve Chatelier, the owner And, when you look with the waybackmachine it is not possible to open former versions... I will miss the website
  12. The item shown below is supposed to be a fragment of Gastornis eggshell, but the texture of the fragment does not look like that of any other fossil eggshell I have ever seen, avian or otherwise. Thanks in advance for any guidance Othniel

    Help with identifying (plant) fossil

    Hello, I found this imprint/mold of what I think is a plant. It was found in France in a dry part of the river Gap. The rock is fragile, I can break it with my hands. Curious to find out your opinions!
  14. I am struggling to find proper information on how to identify different brittlestar genuses, so if anyone has a good resource for that, that would be great as well! Found at place de la Crevasse near Equihen, when splitting open a fallen block of layered, clayey shale. Scale is in cm.

    Ammonites - France

    I have just received these in the post. Didn’t come identified, but wasn’t expensive and took a chance that someone on the Forum might know what Ammonites they were. Info from seller : Callovian, St Laon, Deux Sevres, France
  19. Hi everyone, now that it is a prohibitive time for fossil hunting (at least where I am!) I though it was a good opportunity for a little throwback. This summer I travelled to southern France and I had the chance to visit museums, paleontological heritage sites and, of course, collect fossils. Towards the end of August I met with a friend and we headed to an area that was quite popular among professionals and amateur collectors alike, but we didn't know any exact location. We stopped at a place that looked promising and we asked the owner of the land permission to survey and,
  20. So I bought this end point of a supposed deinotherium tusk from a man in France a while back. Before I purchased I asked how he knew it was deinotherium and not mammoth etc. he gave me an explanation in poor english I didn't quite understand and then said he got it from a palaeontologist in France who's name he quoted (I checked, real palaeontologist). I've attached some pics. What do you think? It's definitely very old ivory of some kind. Thoughts? It's a little over 3 inches long.
  21. As I have been researching large ctenacanthiform sharks from North America, I've been wondering if there are any known globally that are currently unnamed. I definitely know of the large Ctenacanthiformes Saivodus stratus (found in both what is now North America and Great Britain), the large Ctenacanthiform from the Permian Kaibab formation in Arizona, and the 'Texas supershark' (a likely large species of Gilkmanius) from the Pennsylvanian Texas Graham formation (all three as larger or larger than an adult Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias)). But are there any large ctenac

    Recent Calliostoma

    By showing Sara my current shells, I realized that I have a different Calliostoma in my box of C. zizyphinum. It was found in the Côtes d'Armor in northern France. Its difference lies in the fact that some turns are more marked than on the C. zizyphinum. What do you think about that ? @MikeR? From the web : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calliostoma_zizyphinum#/media/File:Calliostoma_zizyphinum_f._laevigata_01.JPG Thanks. Coco

    Cambrian trilobites and creatures

    Hi, i've just used my first binocular yesterday and decided to take a look on the pieces of schist i had collected in La Maurerie, member of the Coulouma formation, Cambrian, Montagne Noire, France. I need help to find out what i saw on them. Firstly, i splitted a piece of schist in two yesterday and found those tiny rounded things that puzzle me a lot. The whole of them form a shape of a little less than a centimeter. I also found that partial cephalon of one centimeter (part and counterpart) and wondered if it was from a Solenopleuridae or Trinucleidae.

    A french theropod tooth

    A guy is selling this tooth, accordingly a theropod from France, found in Cherves-Richemont quarry, Cherves-de-Cognac. It measures 1,5 cm in length. The seller says it is "allosaurid". I've been looking a bit around for some similiar teeth from the area, as well as species, and I find it a bit hard to find some good articles or pictures to cover this, but from what I can make out of it at this point, it may either be Nuthetes, or perhaps a french Neovenator? I had read recently, that they had found teeth in France, resembling the holotype of Neovenator, so that would ma
