  1. I posted a topic - Middle Devonian of Livingston County New York - recently and decided to include the other shelves in the display case. Also a fellow member requested to see more in the room so its their fault I had many more Oligocene fossils at one time and this is what I kept over the years (either I found it or it means something to me). Im sure there will be questions for me. Thanks, Mikeymig
  2. My wife and I found these small jaw fragments in W. Nebraska earlier this month. Not sure of the ID's. Each is about 3 cm long. Help is appreciated! Jaw 1 Jaw 2 Jaw 3 Jaw 4 Jaw 5
  3. Strange Marks on Shell?

    This shell was found in-situ in a late Oligocene formation. The site represents a shallow tropical near-shore environment in what is now the Gulf of Mexico. What is strange to me is the unusual marking on it that I have not been able to determine the identity of. I want to say that it is a bite mark from something, but I really have no idea as this is really not my area of expertise. Edit: I am not referring to the borehole produced by a predatory snail, but the scratch marks near it. I figured that it would at least make for an interesting conversation. The shell measures about 2" across.

  6. Mesohippus bairdi formation?

    Hi guys, I recently acquired a piece of fossil Mesohippus teeth that apparently originated from the White River Badlands of South Dakota. The fossil however does not contain any info about what formation it came from. Does anyone have any idea as to what formation it could have come from?
  7. Hi all, For my birthday (some days ago, the 16th) I got a fantastic fossil fish from my sister! Behold, a Dapalis macrurus from the location Céreste (France). It’s from the Rupelian stage of the Oligocene (30 my). Now I was just wondering if anyone knew which formation this fish comes from? I’d love to have that info! Best regards, Max
  8. Looking for ID help.

    Hello! We took a short trip to Summerville yesterday & had a good haul. This is the item we are most interested in knowing more about if anyone can help. Thanks!
  9. unknown teeth

  10. Hi, I've just got back from one of my collecting trips to Bouldnor Cliff and picked up an odd mammal tooth crown that I was hoping I may be able to get some help with. The specimen constitutes part of the crown and the roots of an as of yet unidentified tooth (possibly molar?). What struck me about it upon picking it up is that the morphology of the tooth and it's roots do not resemble the usual (and common) dental material from Bothriodont anthracotheres which constitute the vast majority of mammal finds from the upper Hamstead Mbr. I've compared it to the Bothriodon teeth and jaws in my collection and can't find a match with either upper, lower or anterior dentition. The specimen (although partial) is also considerably bigger than the anthracothere teeth, so all in all I feel fairly secure in eliminating them as a possibility. I was wondering if it's possible this may be a piece of entelodont tooth. The Entelodontidae are represented in the upper Hamstead Mbr. by Entelodon magnum, although the material is restricted to isolated teeth and very rare. Unfortunately the occlusal surface is missing which makes it impossible to determine whether the tooth was bunodont or not, however the crown does seem to be quite "bulbous" at it's boundary with the roots, which is a feature I've seen in some entelodont teeth before. That said I don't want to rush to conclusions. If anyone has an experience with entelodont teeth or material and is able to help it would be much appreciated, as this would be a particularly exciting find! Thank you, Theo 1.

  21. Oreodont skull prep

    So I bought a partial oreodont skull (Merycoidodon culbertsoni) from an auction site and i'm using it to break in my new air compressor. Here are some before and after pics. I had expected the skull to be fragile and the teeth to be pretty solid, considering how robust teeth are, but I found the opposite to be true. I've had to repair a few of the teeth as I went. They have a tendency to break apart. Luckily nothing too serious. The skull itself seems indestructible by comparison. Overall i'm very happy with how she's turning out so far.
