    Pleistocene Canepatch Formation Scallop

    I found this scallop at an exposure of the Middle to Late Pleistocene Canepatch Formation in North Carolina. I have tried in vain to find information on pectens of the Canepatch Formation. I found a single reference placing Carolinapecten eboreus in the Canepatch Formation but I am not totally sure if that matches. I tried to compare the ears of this scallop to images of Carolinapecten eboreus and I was not confident that they matched. Sadly this specimen is heavily water worn in the waves and has lost some of its distinguishing features. I would love to know if anyone is familiar with the pec

    Castle Hayne ID Help

    I am hoping to get help identifying some invertebrates that I found in the Eocene Castle Hayne Limestone. Most are bivalve internal molds. I have seen the first colloquially called a sponge, but I am not sure that identification is correct. The only reference with plates I could find online for the Castle Hayne was Kellum's Professional Paper 143 from 1926, but it is dated and most descriptions only included a genus. If you know of another reference that is better, please let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1 #2 #3

    Waccamaw Formation Gastropod ID Help

    A couple of weeks ago now I stumped upon several outcrops of the Early Pleistocene Waccamaw Formation in South Carolina. I have been able to identify the various mollusk that I found except for these last three gastropods. Either the resources I have found don't include an example that matches these specimens or it was just too close of a call. I would love to get some opinions on what these might be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1- Petaloconchus sculpturatus? #2- Ilynassa sexdentata? #3- Phrontis sp.?

    Fossil ID request

    Hi, I have a bunch of rocks from all around Alberta, and would really appreciate some help identifying them. I don’t have too much confidence that these are in fact fossils, and am sure most of them will turn out to be oddly shaped rocks. Thank you to everyone to takes the time to look at this post to help me figure this out! These are the “fossils” from my most recent outing with the location written above corresponding images. 1. I found this near the top of the tree line on Longview mountain beside a small steep canyon carved by a stream of meltwater coming down the m
  8. Hello! I'm a new member and I discovered this forum recently. I've already learned so much browsing threads. I'm not sure if it'll be possible, but I was hoping that I could get some help identifying a section of fossil scapula that I came across and was thinking of purchasing. The seller doesn't have much information on it besides it being a Hell Creek find in South Dakota. He thinks it may be from a tyrannosaur. Pictures attached, any thoughts would be great!

    Tooth or no?? Eastern Ohio

    I had found this in east central Ohio, Darke County. It was found on land, but there is a wetland about ¼ mile from where I found this. Not sure if it's a tooth or not and if it is a tooth even what it would be from...but it just seemed more tooth-like than other things I've found...

    Question about tooth position.

    Hiya everyone. Just got another Megalodon for the collection is there any way to know what individual species or where in the mouth the tooth is from? I recently picked up this meg tooth for the collection it’s my largest complete one as of now any help would be great. I know u can sometimes tell where it’s from by the colour and sometimes where in the mouth the tooth would have been.

    Big Hell Creek bone - a bit of a mystery

    So, this bone was collected by me earlier in the summer from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. Upon collecting this bone I had thought that it was a Triceratops (or other Ceratopsid, I suppose) phalanx based on the shape and my memory of seeing pictures online. I was pretty confident in this ID up until a few days ago, and the following are throwing me: 1. This bone seems really big for a Triceratops phalanx. The other examples I can find online are not this large, but then again Triceratops was a pretty big animal and I’ve underestimated its size before. 2. It’s har

    Big Brook, NJ + new member

    Hello and thank you for letting me join your forum. My name is Lindsey and today my family went to Big Brook in NJ for the first time, looking for some shark teeth. We found some interesting things and we've got no idea where to even start with identifying the things we bought home. Can you please point me in the right direction? Thank you in advance for your help and I hope you're all having a great week. Lindsey.

    Unknown Oligocene Shark Tooth

    A few weeks ago I completed a road trip from New Jersey to Texas for work and although Hurricane Ida sadly canceled nearly all of my plans, I was able to sneak in a couple quick fossil collecting stops. One such stop was at an outcrop of the Oligocene Vicksburg Group in Mississippi. I was primarily looking for echinoids- I sadly did not find any- but ended up finding this small shark tooth. I am by no means an expert on shark teeth and have tried in vain to research Oligocene sharks of Mississippi. Does anyone know what shark this tooth is from or of a good resource where I might be able to fi

    Pointy Spiral Shell

    Helotes, Tx Part of this shell was sticking out of a chunk of sediment. I used a water pick to clear the rest of it. In trying to determine what kind of shell it is, I’ve found several that are similar, but none with the shell spiral as tight. The closest thing that I could find is below. This doesn’t seem correct considering my location. Placostylus porphyrostomus is a species of large air-breathing land snail, a pulmonate gastropod mollusk in the family Bothriembryontidae. This species is endemic to New Caledonia.

    Possible petrified wood

    Hi all! Is this petrified wood? I found it while hiking in Jackson Hole, WY. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I’ve posted these pictures around Facebook but haven’t gotten very many responses. Thanks!
  17. Hello to all of you guys, I´m a newbie to the forum, so i would like to before anything, say hi to everyone here And with that already said, i would need some help with the identification of some fossils of Elasmobranchii, that I have seen near the coast of south central Chile. The fossils are 2 teeth and something else that I´m unable to ID correctly (I think maybe a vertebra? or some weird gastropod). The age of the sandstone that contains these should be around the Upper Paleocene. The fisrt tooth I think is from some (I think) sand tiger shark (so
  18. I found almost 75 teeth at Holden beach, just north of north Myrtle, but there are a few I can't identify. By the way the teeth are a little larger than they look in the picture. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Marine fossil ID

    We were walking along the beach to the north shore light house on block island (part of Rhode Island). I picked up several really cool rocks but this one is the best. I think it is a plant fossil but could not find anything close online. It also has sparkly metallic or crystal content throughout. Any ideas what this is?

    Golf ball

    Novice here- we live in Western Colorado where many fossils are found. I found this after a rain storm at the base of a small gulley. It’s the size of a golf ball, there are striations in the dimples which don’t come across well in my photos. I haven’t taken the time to clean it, as I’m not sure the best way and dont want to damage it. Any ID?
  21. Hi, I'm a newbie to this forum and would really appreciate some help identifying a fossil that my son found last week in mid-wales, Upper Gilwern Hill Quarry, Powys. It was found in the same strata of slate with trilobites that the quarry is famous for. multiple photos attached. Many thanks in advance for anyone who can help identify it.
