    Maryland Triassic Trace Fossils

    Yesterday I set out to a site that exposed the Gettysburg formation up in Maryland in hopes of finding some Triassic footprints. What I came back with was mostly some trace fossils and burrows, but some of these looked suspiciously like tracks, so I wanted to post them on ID and see if someone with a little more experience could help me out. I’ll also probably send some emails out in hopes of getting someone who’s more experienced with the Triassic formations around PA and Maryland. Anyways here are the potential trackways I really hope to get some light shed on these and learn more about this

    Preservation of colour in fossil shells

    Hi all, Some time ago I found this shell in (what I believe to be) the French Upper Muschelkalk (Triassic). Now I'm not into shells myself, but to judge from the remains of operculum on the underside of it, the specimen concerns an oyster. Most strikingly, however, the shell has a pattern of darker-coloured lines that do not correspond to any three-dimensional/elevational differences on the shell surface - which is, in fact, entirely flat. I haven't seen this on a fossil shell before. Now when doing a Google search for my response on whether it would be possible for cru
  3. I've been fascinated with the Eugeneodontids (the buzz-saw chondrichthyans) and how they managed to practically become the apex predators of most oceanic environments from the Carboniferous to the Permian with famous members like Edestus and Helicoprion. Two genus of this extraordinary group even survived the Permian-Triassic Extinction 252 Million Years ago - Fadenia and Caseodus! http://www.fossilworks.org/cgi-bin/bridge.pl?a=taxonInfo&taxon_no=34456 http://www.fossilworks.org/cgi-bin/bridge.pl?a=taxonInfo&taxon_no=34451 But by the Olenekian stage
  4. Quite regularly, questions turn up about the authenticity of Keichosaurus fossil specimens. Until now, most, if not all, were natural, but mostly just very poorly prepped. Would you like to show off "real" fakes, casts or replicas of Keichosaurus? I would like to get a feeling for them, at least from pics. If there already exists such a topic somewhere else in the forum, please put a link in this topic. Thank you very much! Franz Bernhard

    Triasic Archosaur Tooth

    Loc: https://www.geopark-thueringen.de/entdecken-erleben/nationale-geotope/standard-titel Age: Triassic, Keuper For wchich Archosaur, this tooth belongs? I know that it's hard to say, but maybe somebody can do this
  6. I went on a recent fossil hunt in North Carolina looking for the cow branch formation. I found some fossils. It was a very quick stop, about an hour before I had to leave. I found what I believe is to be a footprint it reminds me of a tremnospondyl but it’s from the cow branch I believe. I also found some shells there, plant material, and pieces of what looked to be good footprint material but I wasn’t there long enough to fully examine. So here’s the finds from yesterday: Total haul: footprint in question: outline of footprint: What specie

    Revueltosaurus teeth

    From the album: Triassic

    Revueltosaurus was a Pseudosuchian, on the branch of the Archosaurs more closely related to the Crocodilians than the Dinosaurs. Despite the serrated teeth, it is thought to have been herbivorous.

    Lungfish tooth plate

    From the album: Triassic

    Lungfish are an ancient group of fish, with swim bladders that evolution co-opted as a kind of "lung," allowing them to breathe air. This may have proven invaluable in a seasonally dry climate in Pangea.

    Coelophysoid? Theropod tooth

    From the album: Triassic

    From the "dawn" of the Dinosaurs, this small tooth represents an early theropod. Unlike the other serrated archosauriform teeth present in the formation, this tooth is ziphodont - thin and labio-lingually compresed - the archetypical tooth form that most theropods adhered to since their beginnings.
  10. I've found this vertebra in a Middle Triassic marine formation in the middle east. it's 29mm long. a friend of mine suggested that it's a reptilian vertebra but I want to know more. I'll appreciate any help you can offer.
  11. Is the fossil site at Union Wash worth going to? I've read that the site's been depleted of fossils. Is that true?

  13. I visted Aust Cliff on the River Severn, Gloucestershire UK back in Feburary and managed to find a large block of the 'Rhaetic Bone Bed' . Lots of bone fragments, fish teeth, even a shark fin spine! But my best finds are a paddle bone and large tooth. (Still got plenty more rock pieces to break open and search for more, so a long term project...) However i would like to I.D this Ichthyosaur in particular. Does anyone know about the early ichthyosaurs from the late Triassic? Age: 208 - 201mya (Late Triassic: Rhaetian) - Aust Cliff Paddle bone - humerus?
  14. Hello, I've had a bit of difficulty getting a possibility of what this bone could have come from. It seems far too large to be from Pachystropheus rhaeticus so could Plesiosaur or Ichthyosaur be a possibility? The bone is broken off around the back. There's quite a lot of other things aside from the bone, which I think some of include a small tooth from Birgeria acuminatus as well as one from Lissodus minimus and a scale which looks like those of Gyrolepis albertii. Thank you
  15. I bought this Keichousaurs recently from the auction site. The pictures were a bit blurry, but I couldn't bring myself to ask for better pictures because of anxieties, so I ordered it so I could take pictures myself. It arrived yesterday and to me it looks real and just very mutilated from the preparation. However, I don't trust my own assessment on such matters due to being very new to collecting. If it is fake I have until the 4th of October to return it. This is why I'm asking. So is this real? (I hope the pictures are good enough, I had to borrow my wife's camera and
  16. A new paper is available online that you may find interesting: Regalado Fernández, O.R., and Werneburg, I., 2022. A new massopodan sauropodomorph from Trossingen Formation (Germany) hidden as ' Plateosaurus' for 100 years in the historical Tübingen collection. Vertebrate Zoology 72: 771–822. doi:10.3897/vz.72.e86348. In case anyone's aware, the holotype of Tuebingosaurus maierfritzorum was found in 1922 and referred to the nominal species 'Gresslyosaurus plieningeri' by German paleontologist Friedrich von Huene. This specimen, which was long catalogued as GPIT IV but now bears the new ca
  17. Hi everyone! I have just returned from a fieldschool to Poland which was organized by the BVP (Belgium Society for Paleontology) in association with the Universities of Opole and Gdansk. The fieldschool started on the 9th july and ended on july 17. The first 2-3 days of the trip took place in the historic city of Gdansk which lies by the Baltic Sea where the main focus was on Baltic Amber. This included lectures, workshops, a small museum tour and some trips to the beach in search for amber. For the 2nd part of the trip we travelled to the south towards Opole and more s
  18. Hello together, its been some time since I posted a model, and there are quite a few unfinished ones in the making. realizing how small Atopodentatus' iconic head was in relation to its body, I decided to rather try and print a lifesize skull than a complete downscaled skeleton. Morphing recent species' skulls has the advantage that you get anatomically looking detail, although on the other hand it is wrong detail. So I would much appreciate feedback when you spot something particularly wrong. @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon? And Atopodentatus took some morphing. Here is how f

    Possible Fossil, Triassic Basin

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the world of fossil hunting, and I think I may have found something. Could someone help me ID this? I don't know if it even is a fossil. It looks like it could be a plant stem or something. It is long and tubular and branches off in places. I found it in a clay pit in the Deep River Basin of Chatham County, NC. The rocks here are said to be from the late Triassic. Any ideas?
  20. PetrosTrilobite


    Hi! I see many teeth in market as revueltosaurus teeth. But I am not sure for the real ID. For example are these teeth from revueltosaurus? What other taxa we find in bull canyon? I know nearly nothing about triassic reptiles.
  21. I've found a fossil in a middle Triassic formation that a friend of mine suggested that It's a shark tooth but I couldn't find anything similar. Maybe some of you can help me with the ID? It's 7mm long. It's pretty flat and if it is indeed a shark tooth I think that the root is missing. Thank you!
