    Could anyone identify this?

    Found today at Wiseman's Bridge beach in Pembrokeshire.
  2. Here is the description of a new welsh theropod Pendraig milnerae. Found in the 1950s in the same fissures as pantydraco, the “new discovery” is a type of coelophysidae and it had laid undiscovered in the drawers of The Natural History Museum in London. https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/10.1098/rsos.210915 We are on a roll with Welsh dinosaurs: Megalosaurus (Zanclodon) cambriensis Pantydraco cauducus Dracoraptor hanigani Pendraig milnerae And not forgetting the Triassic mammal Morganucodon watsoni

    Prepping a Trilobite

    Hi I don’t normally collect trilobites but we spent a few days in mid wales drinking coffee and reading books. We also got a chance to look for trilobites. Here is a partial on a block and whilst having a dig around, I found another one which I’m prepping out.

    Id required please

    Spotted this in a small bay on Anglesey, Wales. There were lots of other small shellfish type fossils mostly in slate rocks, but this one was larger and seems to have vertebrae? Could anyone offer any insight into what this is please? Many thanks.

    Trilobite from Pembrokeshire?

    Hi all, I collected this piece of rock from Saundersfoot beach last week. Because it was loose on the beach, I don't have much indication of formation or age, but I'm aware that the majority of rocks in that area are Carboniferous, and I'm also aware that Carboniferous chert does exist in the Pembrokeshire region. I'm not sure where it could have came from otherwise. The fossil in question is a scoop-shaped, hemispherical mold in chert which features two discontinuous troughs running down its centre. Upon closer inspection, the surface of the mold furthest f

  7. I bought this Trilobite in a collection, all of which were supposedly collected from Guilsfield, Wales. Specimen measures 41x26x4.6MM approx. I don't have too much experience with Trilobites and to me this kind of looks like some of the specimens of Elrathia Kingii I have from Utah. However, I do not believe Elrathia is found in Wales. The closest possible match I can find is Ogyginus corndensis or Ogygiocarella debuchii. I would appreciate any input on this. Thank you, John
  8. Hey everyone, I recently acquired this ichthyosaur vertebra that was originally collected in Penarth, south Wales, UK. What initially struck me was the vertebra's size, since it's by far the biggest one I have of any ichthyosaur: Now, other large ichthyosaur remains have been described from the very same location. The paper is freely available here: https://bioone.org/journals/acta-palaeontologica-polonica/volume-60/issue-4/app.00062.2014/A-Mysterious-Giant-Ichthyosaur-from-the-Lowermost-Jurassic-of-Wales/10.4202/app.00062.2014.full The cliffs at Penarth apparently conta
  9. I found two ichthyosaur ribs and a fern leaf on my local beach, yesterday. Unfortunately for me, they were in a massive slab which probably weighed no less than 25-30kg. At first I tried using my chisel and hammer to try and split up the rock into more manageable chunks but that didn't seem to work. Moreover, the bits of rock were flaking dangerously close to the fossils. I then tried rolling the rock, and this worked for a while until it rolled into a pit where it got stuck. With the tide coming in, I was forced to leave the slab. Now this got me thinking: How do people go about getting big a

    Jurassic Bivalve ID

    Anyone able to help me classify this bivalve. I interpret it as some sort of Infaunal bivalve but could be totally wrong. The specimen was collected at Rhoose point on the Jurassic Heritage Coast Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales from the Blue Lias formation.

    Vertebrae?

    Hi, this fossil i believe was found on Mt. Snowden in Wales, it may be a long shot to identify since its not very unique looking, but worth a shot Definitely some kind of vertebrae, there is another on the other side of the stone that I will attach in the replies, however that one seems to be a deep indent rather than sticking out like the big one, so if anyone could shed some light on that i would be grateful. Thanks!

  14. I am leaving shortly to spend just over a week in England, more specifically in the Liverpool area, and will be taking a day trip along the coast of Wales to Rhyl as well. I've done some basic research and found that Liverpool sits right on top of Triassic bedrock, and Rhyl on top of Permian bedrock. Are there any sites that would be within my realm to visit and collect at? If so, are there any rules and regulations that I, an amateur from outside the country, need to know about before I go? If there are none, are there any noteworthy shops that I may be able to visit where I

    Stone found on beach in Wales

    Hi everyone! I found this yesterday on a pebbley/rocky shore near Solva in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, UK. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? The stone is roughly 15cm x 15cm and was found on the mid shore. Thanks in advance! Hannah
  17. I’m a complete beginner so please forgive my ignorance. I found this on my second time deliberately looking for fossils. Honestly, I’ve no idea if it’s a fossil. I did find some other interesting things too but nothing like this. I’ve researched Penarth and it’s suggested that the formation is early Blue Lias? Or Lias Group and dates to Jurassic period. This was found towards the bottom of a cliff and I do not believe it’s been submerged by the sea. Thanks in advance for any pointers, Nathan
  18. I found this on the foreshore at Penarth beach (rocky) close to cliffs. I assumed it could be a trace fossil of some kind? Somebody on Reddit suggested perhaps Fusulinids, and they certainly resemble those from what I’ve seen, but it doesn’t look to tie in with the age of the rocks at the site.

    Weird fossil

    Hello all I was relooking at a piece I obtained many years ago. It has a beautifel cephalon of Trinucleus fimbriatus, which was the reason I bought it. I noticed this weird, rond fossil in the same piece. I was not a member here then and I didn't found it online. I forgot about the object until today. Now I want to know what it is. Does anyone here has an idea? I thought It might be one of the early development stages of a trilobite. It looked like a protaspis but is way to big (online they say protaspis are less than 1 mm, while this piece is 4mm) It's from the middle

    Dinosaur Footprint Cast?

    Hello, I found this last year during a fossil hunting trip in the Bendricks, South-Wales. I know their are several track ways and some 200+ footprints embedded within the rock around the local areas, however I have not seen a footprint cast from this locality either (that I know of). I have tried finding a contact for the geology department at the national museum based in Cardiff, though it has been unsucessful. Any light you can shed on this would be much appreciated! It may be just a conveniently shaped rock, however it is always worth asking. Apologies for the picture, I've had t

    Dino flesh and skin fossil?

    Hi all, found this fossil, thought it was tree bark or sediment layers until i turned piece over. Looks to be a skin and soft tissue fossil, has small (approx 1mm) scale like bumps on front face, and what appears to be a meeting point to bones, possibly ribs on rear, with a distint layer between resembling a muscle layer. Any thoughts or input would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, B.Davies
