  2. Four specimens presented for discussion. I studied several possibilities and, with a huge risk of error on this tricky ones, I present my hypotheses till now. By now just for the genera, of course. 1st and 2nd pics - Kingaspidoides sp. ? 3th and 4th pics - Kingaspidoides sp. ? 5th and 6th pics - Ornamentaspis sp. ? 7th and 8th pics - Latikingaspis sp. ? (a risky call and Geyer, 1990 don't help as all plates with this genus have just partial cranidia). I found just one photo browsing the web to compare (last attachment). Thanks in advance for your opinions. Miguel
  3. I will not try any guess on this one

    I have no clues, neither information about this one. Any help? Thanks in advance for your opinions
  4. Moroccan Placoparia species

    Hello, Is the Caid El Rami Placoparia's species (like the one at attachment) already known? Thanks in advance for your opinions.
  5. Morocco Trilobite

    Morocco, Trilobite. bought as part of a lot of fossils. thank you
  6. Hi, I've noticed a lot of talk about the different issues with theropod teeth that originate from the Kem Kem beds on this board, and it reminded me that I had a 'Spinosaurus' tooth in my collection. I bought it when I was a kid, and obviously didn't question it's legitimacy or ID in any way. But now that I'm older and have a lot more experience I noticed some features of the tooth that I find slightly dubious. Firstly is the size, it's small, only around 3cm which doesn't compare to some of the enormous teeth in the dentition of Spinosaurus that I've seen. Secondly is the presence of sandy matrix material around the base of the crown which as I've read on here can indicate restoration, and to me looks quite strange. I was wondering if anyone could help confirm if the tooth does appear to be from a Spinosaurid and whether or not it has been restored/composited in anyway. Thanks, Theo
  7. An interesting discovery of early Homo sapiens fossils in Morocco as opposed to just E. Africa: From the CBC: http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/oldest-homo-sapiens-discovered-morocco-1.4147852 Similar, but with some additional information, courtesy of the BBC: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-40194150
  8. I bought this 3.5" Carcharodontosaurus tooth on a certain auction site recently for $650. It looks real (and not a composite) to me, but the color does seem a bit strange in a few places. I'm sure it's just a natural pattern and I'm (slightly) worried over nothing but I have to ask. Does the tooth look dyed to any of you? If so, it was VERY carefully done but this is my first dinosaur tooth and I haven't really seen enough to be completely sure. The seller has 100% positive feedback with a lot of reviews. First three photos are indoors with flash, last two are outside. Indoor photos show the proper color (on my monitor).
  9. Ammonites from Morocco

    Hi all, I got those ammonites from @cheney416 in a blind trade. They come from Morocco, but the exact location is unknown. Apparently they are from the Bajocian stage of the Jurassic; 170 mya), but I can't find any Jurassic locations in Morocco containing ammonites... Does anyone know what species these are, and what location they could come from? Thanks, Max
  10. I'd like to buy these three trilobites on eBay and the auctions ends in less than 30 mins. Here are the photos. Are there any resorations on the, both? The seller says that they are both 100% natural and wants $27 for the first two and $24 for the last one. Is that a fair price? Thanks!
  11. Pterosaur Tooth ID

    Hello, Can somebody help me ID this pterosaur tooth? The seller says it was found in the Kem Kem basin in Morocco. The tooth is about 1 1/2 inches long.
  12. Halisaurus arambourgi jaw

    A partial left dentary (lower jaw) of a small mosasaur. On the side there is a large pathology visible on the bone surface.
  13. From the album Trilobites

    Taxonomy: Flexicalymene ouzregui (two specimens) Age: Ordovician Location: Anti-Atlas Mtns, Morocco Source: Purchased
  14. This is my first post ... patience please. I collect amber with insects under normal circumstances. I have inherited a box of different fossil teeth from a relative. I am told the pieces are from Morocco he brought back in the early 70's. The more I read and research online, the more I hear "fake Moroccan fossils". I have no idea but would like to confirm either way. I have followed several threads on this site researching this. If these are real, how is quality determined? Do I need to clean them up or will I damage them? I find a tremendous range in pricing online. I collect amber and know how to value quality but this is a different thing to me. I assume I need to get past the "fake" issue first. I can see what I think is repair (maybe glue or epoxy) on some of the teeth from being broken but not sure. There are quite a few pieces. Any help would be appreciated thanks B

  16. Hello! Good Night to everyone who participates in my favorite Forum! I present to you the newest member of my collection... It was discovered in Kem Kem, Morocco. Very good condition, although there are natural cracks in the enamel these do not appear to have been glued or restored. But I do not think it's a Rebbachisaurus tooth... What do you think? Thank you all!
  17. Theropod indet.

    From the album Dinosaur teeth

    Theropod indet. Cretaceous (Cenomanian) Kem Kem Beds, Morocco Perfect tooth measuring an inch long. Unsure of what type of theropod it is so if anyone has any ideas I would appreciate any input.
  18. Konservat-Lagerstatt in Northern Africa

    MAR Author&journal credibility:very high i will not post images of the fish here,but they are stunning. Instead I went for the invertebrates Textuallly speaking,this caught my eye: "A few fragments of fern fronds (Fig. 14) were encountered with additional examples seen in fossil dealers’ storehouses in Erfoud on a similar matrix. All are preserved as orange/brown goethite films similar to those encountered in plants from the Crato Formation of Brazil" NB:"After submission of this paper Cavin et al. (2010) published a paper in which the Gara Sbaa locality is discussed in the context of other Moroccan Early Cretaceous vertebrate assemblages, referring to the Gara Sbaa assemblage as the Agoulti assemblage."
  19. Mystery Kem Kem verts

    I'm trying to unravel a Kem Kem turtle mystery at the moment, but in the meantime, I have these two verts that I find myself unable to ID. Which is annoying, because I thought I'd be better able to do so, using the resources of this forum. The first, I suspect to be some kind of croc, but I don't know enough to be sure. I think it's all original - there are several repaired breaks, but I strongly suspect that they are all original bits. I have searched all over, but can't see anything that looks 100% like it, particularly in terms of the neural arch going straight up like that. Please can anyone ID it? It's 6 inches tall, 3.5 inches wide. The second one is pretty big, 6 inches long. I was hoping this would prove to be theropod, but there are no processes evident to help with ID. Thanks
  20. Moroccan Theropod Vertebra

    I'm calling in the Theropod experts for this one! I'm looking for an ID for this vertebrae, or whether the seller's ID is correct, or wishful thinking. The ID/Location information is below and is exactly as it is shown online by the seller. Since there's SoOoOo much conclusive research on Moroccan Theropods this one should be a breeze . Can this vert truly be labeled as anything more than Theropod indet? Currently the seller is labeling this vert as belonging to Rugops Primus. For size reference this vert is 4cm long. I don't own this fossil so I am currently limited to the couple of side view shots provided by the seller. Information: Cretaceous Theropod (Raptor) Tail (Caudal) Vertebra - Rugops primus Tegana Formation, Aptian Kem Kem Basin, Morocco, North Africa Creataceous - 100 Million Years Old
  21. Kem Kem Dinosaur Rib?

    Hi there, I bought this nice dinosaur bone from the Kem Kem basin in Morocco. Just wondering if a rough ID is possible? The seller said it looked like a rib bone but wasn't sure. Is it a theropod or crocodylomorph? It's had some repairs done to it; few gaps filled here and there. All suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you!
  22. Kem Kem IDs

    I've been going through some Kem Kem material and trying to identify some of it, which I know is difficult even for someone that knows what they're doing. I don't, at all, but I am reasonably confident on a few bits - I wondered if anyone would be kind enough to give their opinions on my tentative IDs? 1. First of all, and definitely very tentatively, I was hoping that this was pterosaur. Wishful thinking? It's hollow and splits off in two directions at the end. 2. Secondly, this tooth - I'm daring to dream that it might be... sauropod? It only has a tiny bit of enamel left on it, but I'm going by the heavily blunted shape. Knowing me, it's probably a very poor Spinosaurus. 3 - Fish jaw #1 - I'm not at all sure about this, but it has a row of little 'post holes' that I assumed might be for teeth. But I have no idea. Has all sorts of suggestive shapes and ridges. 4. Fish Jaw #2 - this must be a fish jaw, but can anyone suggest what type of fish? 5 - Mystery tooth - at first I thought this was a scrap of bone, but upon closer examination it is clearly a tooth. The shape seems odd to me, it's very triangular, but I have very little experience with teeth to be fair. One end is very, very slightly (a couple of mm) smaller than the other, but there is no visible curvature on any edge. It needs prepping since it's still covered in matrix on every side, but I was wondering if the triangular shape was suggestive of anything. You can just make out the row of serrations on the photo below, along the top, so it must be theropod. 6. A small limb bone from a theropod maybe? The bone is hollow and oval. Needs more prep really, when my workshop is back in action. 7. Crocodile scute. I know that this is some kind of armour, but where were these plates positioned? Down the back? And were they just below the skin? Took a lot of prep to get it this far! Sorry, I didn't set out to post so many bits. Any conformation/refutation/information appreciated. Paul
  23. Rooted Spinosaurid tooth

    The newest addition to our dinosaur fossil collection from the Kem Kem Beds in Morocco, a rooted Spinosaurid tooth. It is 6 inches in length, and really shows the strength and size of this animal. There is some cool feed wear on the tip as well. This one is for my 7 year old son, and will be in his Easter basket on Sunday morning. Spinosaurus is is favorite dinosaur, and he's going to go bananas! Can't wait to see the look on his face! .
  24. Hi everybody, I moved my attention to this item, the price is around 550 USD. I would like your advice if the tooth is real and if the price is too high. Thank you all Greetings
  25. Misidentified as Carcharocles auriculatus ?

    Hi Guys, Wanted to ping the brain trust. This tooth was listed as a Carcharocles auriculatus from Morocco ...... the serrations look more like a Paleocarcharodon orientalis from Morocco to me. Though I'm not familiar with the morphology or variation in these teeth so I was curious what others thought. It's a bit small so there's that as well. Thanks, Brett
