    Hello guys, I would like to know your opinion about the ID of the Asaphidae ssp. I have currently in stock. Thanks in advance for your always precious help. Best wishes, Miguel a) From Zagora
  3. Hello, is there in Morocco any other species of Onnia? Or just Onniasuperba? Those ones in the pictures are from Blekos. Thanks in advance, Miguel
  4. Hello friends, here I am with my first fossil of dinosaur: this is a spinosaurs tooth, or rather, I purchased it as spinosaurus tooth. Do you confirm this identification? The declared provenance is Kem Kem Morocco and it is estimated to be 95 million years old. So what do you think of this fossil? Thank you Alessio
  5. Is this a Zeliskella?

    Hello, found this one and it seems a Zelliskella. What do you think? 5,1 cm @piranha Miguel

  7. Timezirte trilobites

    This is a interesting piece with two specimens (a complete Kettneraspis aff. pigra and an unidentified one) fossilized facing ventrally with respect to one another. Two questions: 1) What period is this matrix?; 2) What species is the incomplete one? Dimensons of cranidium plus first thoraxic segments at the pictures: 1,3 x 1,9 cm Thanks in advance for your opinions. Miguel
  8. Flexicalymene, Gravicalymene?... Thanks in advance for your help. Miguel

  10. 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
  11. 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

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

    Morocco, Trilobite. bought as part of a lot of fossils. thank you
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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).
  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. Halisaurus arambourgi jaw

  21. From the album Trilobites

    Taxonomy: Flexicalymene ouzregui (two specimens) Age: Ordovician Location: Anti-Atlas Mtns, Morocco Source: Purchased
  22. 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
