    Ichthyosaur from Yunnan

    This is an unprepped ichthyosaur from Luoping, Yunnnan Province of China. It measures 70cm in length. Any idea which species is that? And the completeness of the fossil?
  2. After a few conversations with forum members I thought it would be useful to share some Russian papers which have probably never been translated into English, thus are not known (at least in detail) internationally. I picked 5 of the best Russian-only articles I had found which are NOT limited to local aspects and descriptions (there are quite of few of this kind) but suit any person interested in marine reptiles and give some general knowledge on the subject. The authors are our most prominent specialists. Translation into English or any other language can be made with https://translate.googl
  3. Hi all! I was finally able to visit the Volga site thanks to a water level/ good weather window. The journey was mostly a success, I got a better understanding of the site, used new means of transportation and examined more of the shoreline. Among the finds were two dozens of marine reptile verts and bone fragments and LOTS of ammonites and other mollusks. Unfortunately the river level was not low enough, 1m higher than during my 1st trip, 0,5m lower than in the 2nd. But it was at least possible to walk the shore. There's still a lot more to do, but now I have a pretty clear idea how to m
  4. Hi, I'm considering this partial ichthyosaur jaw with 5 teeth (3 in a natural position and 2 others that have been displaced--one is on top and one is on the backside) from Jurassic (Tithonian) deposits in Tartarstan, Russia. The seller, who is also the finder/preparer, has identified this as Undorosaurus and noted that there is repair to the last tooth at the end, which broke and has been glued back together, and some holes that he filled in on that tooth--these are shown in the second photo with the red line (repaired break) and circles (filled in holes), as drawn by seller--but

    Ichthyosaur or pliosaur tooth?

    Hello all I acquired this tooth recently. It's those famous russian deposits that produce ichthyosaur and pliosaur remains. I bought it as an ichthyosaur tooth, but could it be it's pliosaur? I've noticed rootef ichthyosaur teeth have a bit different root, like a pronged root. But I'm hardly an expert so I'd greatly appreciate feedback from others
  6. I have just seen this for sale and while it could potentially be a nice addition to my daughter’s ichthyosaur collection, the attempted prep is a bit off putting. The seller says it’s on ‘calcite beef’. How difficult would it be to just tidy up those air scribe marks? I don’t see the need for any further exposure, just a bit of tidying. Do forum rules allow me to ask what the appropriate cost of getting this done professionally would be if I didn’t fancy attempting it? Thank you for looking
  7. Hi, I am interested in this. Sold here, seller says its ok to have a second pair of eyes look it over. From Holzmaden. Slab is 50cm. Jaw is 14cm. Seller thinks jaw has been added. My main concern is have the vertebra been added too? Thanks

    Whitby area Vertebra

    Braved the cold today to have a long walk around Runswick Bay and beyond. Best find was this vertebra, found in a slab of ammonites. Needs a little more prep to get the shale off. Any idea if it’s Ichthyosaur or something else?
  9. Hi all! Following the first topic I'll show you another fossil layer in that same location, Epivirgatites nikitini ammonite zone. It's the lowest of the three layers in Fili Park, relates to the middle Tithonian (Volgian, upper Jurassic) and is known for big ammonites and vertebrate remains. It's the last remaining accessible site in the region where you can count on finding Jurassic vertebrates. The finds are stable, but small, scarce and involve sifting.
  10. New 'sea dragon' species discovered by amateur fossil hunter off English coast By Jack Guy, CNN, December 10, 2020 The open access paper is: Jacobs, M.L. and Martill, D.M., 2020. A new ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur from the Upper Jurassic (Early Tithonian) Kimmeridge Clay of Dorset, UK, with implications for Late Jurassic ichthyosaur diversity. Plos one, 15(12), p.e0241700. Yours, Paul H.
  11. I visted Aust Cliff on the River Severn, Gloucestershire UK back in Feburary and managed to find a large block of the 'Rhaetic Bone Bed' . Lots of bone fragments, fish teeth, even a shark fin spine! But my best finds are a paddle bone and large tooth. (Still got plenty more rock pieces to break open and search for more, so a long term project...) However i would like to I.D this Ichthyosaur in particular. Does anyone know about the early ichthyosaurs from the late Triassic? Age: 208 - 201mya (Late Triassic: Rhaetian) - Aust Cliff Paddle bone - humerus?

    Unidentified bone

    I recently bought a bit of a job lot of things online just to get an ichthyosaur tooth for my daughter’s collection. Along with the tooth, an ichthyosaur bone and some acrodus teeth was this. The seller stated that it is from the Rhaetic bone bed in Somerset and is triassic. It looks a lot like the other ichthyosaur bone in the lot, but is anyone able to identify it? Thank you for looking
  13. Hello all- With a five day weekend and some pretty good weather (for late November), and the honey-dos done it was time for a day in the field. I went to a new part of a ranch that I have only been to several times. Previous finds include an ichthyosaur snout and two plesiosaur verts. The goal was Jurassic ichthyosaur bones. But this place has a series of fossiliferous horizons to explore. Other targets included articulated Jurassic crinoids, pterodactyl tracks, and small dinosaur bones. I say small bones because it was a mile and a half (2.5 km) walk to the bottom of the hill with
  14. Hey guys, I just posted a video where I find some huge verts from an Ichthyosaur (towards the end of the video) They're the biggest articulated backbones that i've found!

    Ichthyosaur Paddle

    Hey guys, I just posted a video where i find the 3rd joining piece to a big partial ichthyosaur paddle that i've found afew months back. Also some other ammonites and other interesting bits along the way. Hopefully you enjoy.
  16. Hey everyone, I recently acquired this ichthyosaur vertebra that was originally collected in Penarth, south Wales, UK. What initially struck me was the vertebra's size, since it's by far the biggest one I have of any ichthyosaur: Now, other large ichthyosaur remains have been described from the very same location. The paper is freely available here: https://bioone.org/journals/acta-palaeontologica-polonica/volume-60/issue-4/app.00062.2014/A-Mysterious-Giant-Ichthyosaur-from-the-Lowermost-Jurassic-of-Wales/10.4202/app.00062.2014.full The cliffs at Penarth apparently conta

    Ichthyosaur vertrebra

    From the album: Holzmaden

    A 3.7 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the Posidonia shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Here two more pictures: And a bad picture of the unprepped vertebra: The stone was extremely hard so the prep work was very difficult.
  18. This looks authentic to me but I wanted to be sure. The fossils in the background of these photos kind of raised some red flags for me, especially the air holes in the trilobite mortality plate on the left. Ichthyosaur bones on a fossil plate, origin is listed as Posidonia Shale Formation, Holzmaden, Germany. Thanks friends!

    Whitby area find; bone?

    Just found this at the base of a scree slope somewhere between Runswick Bay and Sandsend (too excited to wait until I’m home to take pictures with a ruler, sorry ) Pretty sure it looks like bone of some sort; can anyone confirm this and maybe identify it? Thanks for looking
  20. I thought some of you may find this interesting. This is an Ichthyosaur paddle digit that looks like there could be a tooth hole in the middle. This could have happened during life or after it had died and then been scavenged on the seabed. Of course there could be another explanation that it has been crushed during fossilisation, but this doesnt look like the usual crushed type specimins i’ve found. Wondered what your thoughts are? Found in Whitby, Yorkshire. Normal looking side Bitten? Side

    Whitby find - bone/wood?

    Just found this on a morning stroll on a beach near Whitby, North Yorkshire, UK. Thought at best it may be a piece of reptile bone, maybe a piece of wood if not. Saw some nice plant material too, we were going to pick the larger pieces up on our return trip but the incoming tide made us decide against it. Thanks for looking

    Ichthyosaur vertebrae

    I bought this ichthyosaur vertebrae several years ago. The website write that the vertebrae is from Brachypterygius. Do you know if it is true? AGE Middle Jurassic LOCATION Weymouth Harbour, Dorest, England FORMATION Kimmeridge Clay SIZE 3.2" wide, 1.2" tall

    Out of place shaped rock/fossil?

    Hey all, I'll jump right into some details about this recent rock/fossil find. Backstory: Taking a quick break from driving and stopped along a shale riverbank (I'll include pics) to look at potential fishing spots and to flip some floating shale for signs of fossils. My subconscious picks out this rather rough "puck" shaped specimen and screams to me "Pick it up!" First thought, column vertebrae of some kind. The reason my eye caught this rock was it's round shape against all the sharp edges of shale that is was loosely lying in. Location: North Eastern BC, Tumbler Ridge, Wa
  24. Hello, new to posting on the forum and fairly new to fossil hunting. Found these very nice marine reptile vertabrae near Osmington Mills, Dorset. All found close together washed out of the Kimmeridgian Clay I think... Age: Oxfordian/Kimmeridgian? 163 - 152mya (both rock types there but I believe the clay cliffs above the beach are Kimmeridgian. Can anyone confirm I have 2 different types (Plesiosaur & Ichthyosaur)? Also any guesses at what species they are likely to be or is it not possible to narrow down from a more generic Ichthyosaurus sp./ Plesiosaurus sp. ?

    Ichthyosaur Collection

    Hi Here’s another fossil I found over Christmas. These bones are pretty rare and are the articulated ischium and pubis from an ichthyosaur. No prep involved apart from cutting the block to size and applying a thin coat of varnish to increase the contrast between the bone and matrix. The fossil is from the Hettangian of Penarth. The block before:
