  1. My daughter just picked up this unusual looking nodule on the beach at Lilstock, it split quite easily to expose a tooth shaped item. Could it be a tooth or perhaps some kind of shell? Thanks for looking
  2. Somerset fossil hunters 'need to be better informed' BBC News, July 27, 2021 United Kingdom Fossil Network Yours, Paul H.
  3. Hi all, I am trying to identify this fossil from a photo taken at Blue Anchor, Somerset. It shod be Triassic or Jurassic. At first I thought it might be a marine creature but it, doesn't look like a skeleton, so I thought possibly a large plant? It is perhaps 0.5 to 0.75 metres across. Many thanks.

    Fossil Identifications

    Thanks beforehand. My young granddaughters (8 and 5 yo) have went fossil hunting in their backyard around Lake Cumberland in Kentucky and as I am not experienced in identification and cleaning techniques I appreciate all help given to identify several examples of what we collected.

    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

    Ok first off this "65 million year old" fossil that comes from the "Jurassic" period just shows how ignorant the author is. I had trouble reading any more, but I had no trouble enjoying the pictures of the fossil icthyosaur. https://news.google.com/articles/CAIiEIJqm_wITm06zKsQ0oo0ZOUqGQgEKhAIACoHCAowzuOICzCZ4ocDMPX1qQY?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen

  16. Went out on a hunting trip at the weekend, and came away with quite a few decent finds. These are all in-land finds from locations near Ilminster, and the finds are all from the Toarcian pediod (182-174m years ago). Please forgive me having forgotten most of the names of the ammonites, I'm not great at remembering them. This ammonite, a Dactylioceras of some kind, is covered in clay which is absolutely full of what appear to be trace fossils from worm activity. This isn't uncommon, but I've rarely seen such a vivid example. Close up:
  17. Lovenechinus lacazei (Julien) (most likely this species but I'm not sure if there's really enough diagnostic detail). Lower Carboniferous, probably Tournaisian. Very rare anyway but of especial interest as it is from the Jurassic Doulting Stone (Bajocian, Inferior Oolite) of Somerset, UK. This is a limestone full of Carboniferous detritus, formed when the Jurassic sea was washing up against the Mendip Hills Carboniferous high ground. (Just acquired via a dealer from an old collection that included Carboniferous coral and crinoid fragments from the same loca

  19. I was at Brean Down on the Somerset coast of England last week, and found various fossils on the beach there. From what it appears, most of the samples I have are from the black rock limestone of the Carboniferous period, although others are differently coloured. They may come from other parts of the coast via longshore drift, or from a point higher up in the cliff, where there are mudstones and sandstones from the upper Carboniferous. Some banded samples, although I have the suspicion at least one of them is actually striped flint. Are these some kind of burrow

  22. I went on a jaunt to Somerset yesterday, for a hunt around in the Beacon Limestone. These rocks are Toarcian in age (~174-182m years old). I found many of the usual ammonites, but also a couple of big surprises. First, the usual finds. These harpoceras ammonites are often very well preserved, and usually display their sutures (you'd be lucky to find one with much shell on it). It has iron deposits on it, but a bit of time in the blasting cabinet and it'll be a uniform grey (which is nicer than it sounds). Here's another harpoceras, with a small

    CORAL COLONY

    Now, i found this when i was seven or eight years old, on the cut down to the beach at Kilve in Somerset, South West England. It was buried in a band of blue/ grey clay in the Psiloceras planorbis zone of the Blue Lias , Lower Jurassic. Although i'd found many lovely fossils before this was my first exceptional, "WOW!" find. I still don't know what it is and that was 45 years ago. A colonial coral colony yes, but i don't think it can be Liassic? A derived fossil from the Devonian or Carboniferous seems likely, but which one? And it shows very little signs of having been transported huge distan
