    Association plate

    This is a Carnian aged natural association of Traumatocrinus crinoids, and either Trachyceras, or Neoprotrachyceras Ammonoids from Guanling Guizhou province China.
  2. found in Lebanon Not found in any specific formation but, according to the geo map i have, the rocks are late Cretaceous(albian-vraconian) lots of gastropods, bivalves and brachiopods around. i want to say its some sort of ammonite, but as far as known fossils here ammonites arent some of them. the ridges on it seem to be connected to each other like a puzzle would be (image 3). also the fossil tapers(image 1). this is all the information i have. Note: To my knowledge no Ammonites have been recorded in Lebanon Thanks for your help guys!

  4. Hello everyone, Some time ago I was talking about a gastropod fossil with an individual online who thought that it was an ammonite, During this conversation one thing was brought up that I have wondered about for a long time but have not actually been able to answer, and that is what exactly do we consider an ammonite? I have always thought that ammonites are the cephalopods with an external shell containing complex sutures which occur throughout the Mesozoic, but people have pointed out that certain sites talk about ammonites going back to the Devonian. I have always thought t
  5. Hi there everyone. I have some pyritized ammonites I believed to be real, but now I'm having second thoughts... The ammonoids from the picture below are both supposed to be pyrite, but why is one so much "golder" than the other? I know it is a natural process, so not every piece will be exactly like the other, but my ammonites are all like the first one, bright gold, and they are all from the same seller. I just wanted to know if they are real. I mean, if that's their real color or if they are treated somehow or painted, etc... Thanks in advance!

    Ladinian hashplate

    From the album: alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Hashplate of Ladinian age. The two smooth shelled ammonoids are inner cores of Gymnites cf. arthaberi(size= 3cm). The ammonoid top left is a Arpadites sp. A fragment of Protrachyceras cf. archelaus (darker brown spiny shell part down right) is evidence for Ladinian/Longobardian time(archelaus zone).

    Started my Season

    Yesterday I started my fossil season 2018. It was the first real warm spring weekend this year. What a good feeling to get out again on such a beautyful day. Fortune was along with me and so I found several Triassic ammonoids. The small ones in the block are of upper Carnian(Tuvalian) age. The black Arcestes are of Norian age. Much snow is still on the higher mountains so it will last longer to start collecting at higher locations this year. regards Andreas

    Are These New Mexican Fossil Eggs ?

    Found these in a cluster, in New Mexico in an arroyo (dried river bed) in an area where many other fossils have been found. It's also a volcanic area. Manly ammonoids have been found. Can you help me identify these? Are they of any value?
  13. From the album: alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Size is 40cm x 18cm. Austrotrachyceras austriacum MOJS. (ribbed with nodes, 4cm diameter) on the left lower half, Joannites sp., Arcestes gaytani, Megaphyllites sp., Mojsvarites agenor(on top), small Sirenites sp. and several orthocone Nautiloids and bivalves.
  14. From the album: alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Small slab (15cm x 11cm) showing a fauna from the Triassic/Carnian/ lower Julian zone of Trachyceras aon. The biggest black Syringoceras(Nautilus) measures about 4cm. Ammonoids on the slab are Celtites cf. steindachneri MOJS.(ribbed), Sphingites sp., Lobites elipticus, Sirenotrachyceras sp., Monophyllites sp., Arcestes sp., Asklepioceras sp.
  15. A mini fossil museum exists within the lobby of the Park Hyatt in Chicago, just off Michigan Avenue. I'm guessing not too many people know about it unless they're guests at the hotel. It's a wonderful display of very large Moroccan trilobites, ammonites and various other fossils from around the world. It is free, of course, because it's in the lobby and a nice diversion if you're ever in the area. Another added bonus is it's open 24 hours.

    From the album: alpine triassic Ammonoids

    This part of a Triassic/Tuvalian ammonoid lense show probably the lower ammonoid zone(Dilleri Zone) of the Upper Carnian/Tuvalian stage. The upper half of the picture show a few Trachysagenites erninceus(ammonoids with stroger nodes) and a Tropites sp. core upon left. The lower part show Spirogmoceras sp., Traskites sp. and Paratropites cf. multecostatus with Isculites heimi(flat variant)

    Season End

    That was probably my last trip this year. I decided to do a prospecting round. Crawl on the ground for six hours. The result was meager. Got some new insights but no good finds. Two Carnian Joannites sp. ammonoids were my find of the day. The Norian ammonoids of this layer I left in field. Nevertheless, it was a nice day. I met several of these yellow-black little guys. Now it is raining and weather forecast reports snow down to 600 meters altitude for tomorrow. regards Andreas

    Triassic ammonoid prep

    Because of the bad weather of the last two weeks I’ve started the prep work of a Upper Triassic/Carnian ammonoid block found on my first trip this year. Status of prep after about 12 hours.
  23. Hi fossils friends, here is a little taphonomic accumulation plate with many Olenekian (lower Triassic) Ammonoids. It comes from the Vikinghøgda Formation - Sassendalen group (Sassendalen valley - Spitsbergen island - Svalbard archipelago - Norway) Most of the Ammonoids are Svalbardiceras spitzbergensis (Freblod, 1930). Associated on the plate is an unidentified orthoconic Nautiloid (never seen this in the associated litterature), a bivalve and a partial Ammonoid from the Hedenstroemiidae family (at the top-left). Size of the plate is 11,5 X 9,5 cm. I prepared it with

    Season start

    Today I started my collecting season. It was a successful day I found several Tuvalian Tropites and Jovites(greenish matrix) alas all a little incomplete. But that doesn't matter because I did it more for stratigraphy. At least I found near this location a Julian Block with ammonoids of the austriacum Zone.(reddish matrix) But it was a very hard work. Two broken chisels (of three) make me nervous on half time because my car was far away.
  25. Hello! I'm back after a long posting absence and I would like to share my recent finds with you (December was a very "fossiliferous" month for me). My new fantastic collecting spot is located near Vila Nova de Ourém. However I can't tell you precisely the age of the layers (even after a very exaustive research).That's why I would like to ask for specific paleobiological/stratigraphic documentation or information about this region. I collected fossils from two layers and I noticed the fauna was quite different, so I suppose they are not the same age. As I don't
