  1. Eleganticeras

    Ammonite sandwich

    I picked up a small loose cobble from the shore at Ravenscar, Robin Hood's Bay. It could be locally derived or from the glacial till, but I'm left with this issue... The ammonite, sandwiched between two pecten like bivalves is almost completely covered. It's the bivalve that I mostly need help with. The ammonite has ribs that curve forward at the venter but don't reach the keel. The keel is eroded, but is narrow and without lateral grooves. Comparing it with a Grammoceras I have, I think it's that. If so, its upper Lias. Looking in the Palass guide, the most similar bivalve mat

    Micro Scallop

    The treasure of the Reedy Point Spoils is in the micros! This is one of over 100 micros I collected in one day just surface collecting after the spoils area was freshly cleared of vegetation -- and freshly cleared of much of the remaining matrix. Of all of those micro fossils, this is the only one of this species and very possibly the only one I have found in 16 years of collecting at that site. The Reedy Point Spoils is a 220+ acre dredge deposit from the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. The matrix is a combination of material from the Mt Laurel and Navesink Formations, which are no
  3. Hello everyone! A rather successful day today! Following this article concerning Concavus concavus, I managed to find 5 possible outcrops using Google Earth. Out of those 5, 1st and last were productive. 1st one had mostly ostrea within conglomerate rock. In situ photo and finds, all of them ostrea of various condition. The last section was AMAZING. This picture is taken on a vertical cliff and this is on top of me. So much death in one pic. The rest of the pictures are finds. Some bivalves with both valves preserved, concavus. Unfo

    Florida Fossil Bivalve Resources?

    Greetings all. I moved to Amelia Island, Florida in 2018 and fell in love with the fossil pectens I found on the beach. I find shark teeth too, but usually by accident as I'm looking for fossil shells. At first I thought they were Chesapecten jeffersonius but realized that they are a bunch of different species. I have bought every book and studied every blurry scanned PDF of a good old scientific paper, but I just haven't been able to find a definitive source on how to ID them. Does anyone know a good Chesepecten ID resource? It'd be really awesome to learn more about how I can ID them.

    Pectinidae ID Resources?

    Hello there, I'm a newbie, but already very excited to see the wealth of info on this forum. I am new to collecting fossils; we moved to Amelia Island in 2018 and I started finding pectens (is it correct to call them pectens when referring to them generally?) and got hooked. I've found several hundred on the beach at Fernandina Beach, Florida. I've attached a few samples and hope that someone (MikeR?) can point me to resources which help distinguish pectens in order to ID them. The books I've found don't go deeply enough, or only list a couple. Although there are some great PDFs out the
  6. I'm looking for pecten bivalves for my collection. I prefer material from Europe, middle miocene, Paratethys area.

    Pecten styriacus (Hilber 1879)

    From the album: Gastropods and Bivalves Worldwide

    2.5cm. Florianer Schichten Middle Miocene From Bramberg, Styria, Austria Thanks to Franz Bernhard
  8. There are 5 pectinoida (scallops) that can be found in the Mazon Creek deposit. Aside from Aviculopecten mazonensis, all are uncommon to rare. Dunbarella striata is commonly found in Pennsylvanian aged black shales but fairly rare in the Mazon Creek deposit. Like all Mazon scallops, they are only found in the Essex (marine) portion of the deposit. It has a relatively round shell compared to the much more common Aviculopecten. I actually collected this first specimen on March 1st 2020 (opening day for collecting). It just split open this evening and is the largest examp

    Chlamys decemnarius

    From the Pliocene Yorktown Formation Zone 2 Rushmere Member. An uncommon find at this particular site. Geology and Paleontology of the Lee Creek Mine, North Carolina, II MIOCENE AND PLIOCENE PECTINIDAE (BIVALVIA) FROM THE LEE CREEK MINE AND ADJACENT AREAS, by Thomas G. Gibson
  10. Hello, I'm offering some Pecten scallop shells, personally collected eroding out of an embankment on the Bogue Sound, which is the body of water between the Island, very famous beach Atlantic City as well as the popular tourist town, Emerald Isle, and mainland NC. I found a lone shark tooth and a ray tooth along with coral in the same layer as these shells, so I know these are fossils. I am not 100% sure, but I think this is Yorktown formation. I am willing to trade or sell. I'm interested in any fossils. This is not all the shells from there. I have many more. I also have a few with co
  11. For awhile now, I have been trying to pin down this scallop. I think it is an argopecten, possibly comparilis, or evergladesensis, but the images I can find on line of those, seem to show ribs that are rounded on top. These shells have very flat ribs, with a very slight indentation running down the center of each. The shells are offset a bit. I found them in the northern most edge of ochopee member of the Tamiami formation, along with euvola hemicyclica, and a really lovely little urchin test, the exact name of which I don't recall as I sit here typing. I have a collection of 30 different siz
  12. Chlamys lattisimus, miocene, south Austria if you interesting for trade please contact me! posible all kind of trade and also posible to get more.
  13. Im looking some nice , big, common fossils from miocene period like Pectens, Conus.... something similar like you can see from photos.
  14. Im looking Miocene fossils ( Pannonian sea). If anyone have something for trade please contact me via personal message. Thanks,

    Chesapecten madisonius

    These pectens are very common in the Rushmere Member of the Yorktown Formation in cuts and bluffs along certain portions of the Tar River in North Carolina. Many are extremely worn and even crumble to pieces when handles. Specimens with double valves are not uncommon. This specimen is in exceptional shape. The final picture of the 3 specimens is to illustrate the growth of the species. They are all double valves, and range from 1 /4 inch long to 5 5/8 inch long.
  16. I have a lot of Pectens for trade, if anyone interesting please contact me.

    Pecten Sp 1

    From the album: Eocene Bivalves of New Jersey

    Pecten sp Manasquan Formation Eocene Monmouth County, NJ This is relatively common but is often fragmentary. Weller only gives Pecten sp as present in the unit while Whitfield doesn't recognize any Pecten. Pecten kneiskerni is present in the slightly younger Shark River Formation and I am tempted to assign that to these older specimens.

    Pecten Sp 3

    From the album: Eocene Bivalves of New Jersey

    Pecten sp Manasquan Formation Eocene Monmouth County, NJ This is relatively common but is often fragmentary. Weller only gives Pecten sp as present in the unit while Whitfield doesn't recognize any Pecten. Pecten kneiskerni is present in the slightly younger Shark River Formation and I am tempted to assign that to these older specimens. This particular specimen looks less like a typical Pecten than the others.
