  1. Hello all, Found a couple of very nice Cretaceous fossils in Limburg (in water). Age: 72-68 mya/73-68 mya (late late Campanian - early Maastrichtian) and/or around 68 mya (if we only focus on de 'Kalksteen van Vijlen' from the Gulpen Formation). One source says 72.1 (± 0.6) million years ago (late Campanian). Thus 72.1 (± 0.6) million years ago till 68 mya (Kalksteen van Vijlen). One source states that the Vijlen 5 Member (boreholes in Gulpen and Crapoel) have a age of around 69.8-69.3 mya. So its possible that the fossils are also of this age. During this time,
  2. Found these fossils: one sea urchin, belemnites (mainly Belemnella (Pachybelemnella) obtusa (Schulz, 1979) and/or sumensis and Belemnitella cf. minor II (Christensen, 1995) and one oyster (Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806). Could anyone help me to determine the sea urchin? I think Hemiaster aquisgranensis (Schlüter, 1899)? Found in the ground around the Gulpen Formation (Cretaceous, late late Campanian, early Maastrichtian).
  3. Belemnites have been my core interest for decades, starting as an 8 year old kid when I saw and bought the pointy end of a large Cylindroteuthis in a curio shop (I still have it ). This led eventually to being able to research some Lower Jurassic ones for my Ph.D at university. I pursued another career after that (musical instrument repair and restoration) but palaeontology has remained a fairly fanatical interest ever since. Most of my early collection (including nearly all the research stuff) has been lost for various reasons but I've been able to replace much of it and added many new
  4. Hey everyone, So this summer, like most summers, my family went to my grandpa's holiday house in southern France. Seeing that we had many days with nothing planned, I managed to convince them to go fossil hunting one day. At first, I wanted to go to Lacoste, a place known for its echinoids and gorgeous white scallops, but it turns out these quarries are no longer accessible. So instead we went to Carniol, which was a little further away. After only a few hours in the car we arrived at the village of Carniol. "Village" would still be considered being generous: there are no more tha
  5. Finally got out to Big Brook today. If I had 1$ for every belemnite found I’d be a wealthy man. Found some teeth along with Gastropod and mollusk impressions. One item that is toothy but not sharks tooth will need help identifying

    Cretaceous fossils (NL)

    Hello all, Found these really cool fossils (some weeks ago). The fossils are from the Cretaceous period (shallow marine environment covered Limburg - part of the Netherlands). The fossils are from the upper upper Campanian and lower Maastrichtien (73-69 and/or 72-69 and/or 72-68 mya). I and my girlfriend were searching for fossils and walking in a forest when we found two VERY LARGE echinoids (Echinocorys scutata (Leske, 1778). These are really big and the best ones I have in my collection (one is 9 a 10 cm). The other one is also really big, somewhat flatter,

    Mcmaker's showcase

    Hello everyone. I wanted to share with you my fossils collection. I started fossils hunting in my area back in the june 2019 and that's what I collected and preparated since then. First of all, my favourite belemnites. I donated one of the largest rostrum (7 intact inches, on the second photo) to the Jurassic Museum in my country, feels good So, let's get started, that's one of twelve full shelves, this one is especially for belemnites

    Cretaceous sea

    Hello all, One of the many drawings/art works of me. Black pencil and edited with pc. This artwork comes perhaps in a book that will be published in July/August 2021. The Cretaceous sea (Kreidemeer) of Europe (late late Campanian and/or early Maastrichtian, 73-69/73-68 mya). Kind regards and happy fossil hunting! Ruben

    Belemnites?

    Hello everyone. Picked this group of what I believe are belemnites while hunting in the NSR. There are a lot of belemnites castings within the NSR. Mainly small pieces of black or red. Blacks are much more common. Then, like the NSR seems to do, you get something like this that makes me have to come here and bug you folks. All I have done is brushed it with water and a toothbrush. It was found near the Ben Franklin bridge. Here are the questions. Is it a group of belemnites? What species if possible? Do they have the actual shell? By the way the "shell" has almost a coffee sheen to it when wet

    Ardèche 2020: trip report

    So for the last two and a half weeks I’ve been camping in the Ardèche region in southern France. After a long, exhausting trip of 13 hours we finally arrived. We put up the tent, read a book and went to sleep so we would be fit for our first real day of our vacation. At the first day, we did visit the museum I showed in this topic: After that, the real work started. This big pile of rock was just dumped at the edge of the road. After a few minutes we found our first complete ammonite. Spot the ammonite The wh

    Whitby Belemnites

    Found these Belemnites today on a beach in the Whitby area, is it possible to pin the larger one particularly down to an exact species? It’s now the best in my daughter’s collection as it’s got so much of the phragmocone still attached (albeit glued back in places) @TqB ? Thanks for looking

    Big Brook Finds

    From the album: Fossildude's Finds

    These were found in 2008. The vertebra is recent. I don't know what it is from - maybe rabbit? I have read somewhere that recent bones can get stained rather quickly in Big Brook.

    Our fossil hunting holiday trip

    Natalie81 and I are back from our fossil hunting holiday. On the 20th of july we left for a long camping and fossil hunting week in the UK, we took the ferry in Calais to Dover, drove to Porthsmouth and the 2nd ferry to our 1st stop: 5 days on the Isle of wight. the 1st day on the Island, we prospected the beaches on the the south west of the isle where the Wealden cliffs could deliver some dinosaur remains.We had no luck this time. the 2nd day we went to the southern part of the Island where we could find some cenomanian ammonites in the chalk. T
  15. Today @Natalie81 and I went on a field trip with our geology club to the quarry of Eben-Emael In Belgium. We were over 50 participants today an I had the oportunity to meet aan other TFF member @ziggycardon This location is not far from the stratotype in Maastricht in the Netherlands and a multitude of fossils can be found in the marls and chalks. We had a slow start, but after searching through scree piles I found a small and a big sea urchin, and later on a few belemnites. Natalie hadn't got much luck at the start of the prospection, but she did eventually find th

    colorful belemnites

    I wanted to share a few belemnites in my collection, personaly I think they are a bit of an underrated fossil and could use a little more attention. They can be very beautiful and colorful and of course they are cephalopods Belemnites from Eben-Emael ( Belgium ) Maastrichtian: Belemnites from the area of Mons ( Belgium ) Maastrichtian: Belemnites of the area of Mons (Belgium ) Campanian (2 brachiopods infiltrated the picture )

    Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album: Holzmaden

    These are four Ichthyosaur paddle bones and another Ichthyosaur bone from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The Ichthyosaur paddle bones are about 5 cm big so not too small. There are also a lot of belemnites on the plate. Because of them the prep work was kinda time intensive. It took about six hours to reveal everything. Here are some more pictures:
  18. Here are two of my best belemnites I found this year in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale) . I found tons of them this year but mostly they aren't that good preserved. The first one is about 15 cm long and is a relatively new find. I finished the prep yesterday. It's really good preserved and not too short. It should be Acrocoelites because I think I can see three apical furrows. Noticeable is that one of the apical furrows is really big. Maybe @TqB can tell a little bit more about this belmnite? A
  19. Hey everybody, For a school project I'm looking for a ton of mini belemnites (2-4cm things). Quite urgent I would be able to trade for shark teeth, Moroccan dino teeth, trilo's, .. or else buy them. Would any of you have some to trade? Best regards and thanks!
  20. My daughter was recently out in Wyoming for a dig (she's the real paleontologist in the family) and brought back these belemnites. These are out of the Sundance Formation. I'm use to the specimens coming out of Big Brook NJ (Mount Laurel formation). I find it interesting that the specimens coming out of Wyoming generally appear larger (length and girth) than their NJ cousins. Also, the Wyoming specimens are more "rockish" looking while the Big Brook specimens have an amber hue to them. Visually, I would say that for both specimens the Outline is cylindrical and the Profile is symmetrical.
  21. Headed out to Big Brook tomorrow. We have a few hot spots for belemnites and oysters but not so for shark teeth. When we explore this area we always head downstream of the bridge. Is it worth exploring upstream of the bridge? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hi all, So after learning of the inaccessibility of the location Lacoste, I was wondering if there was maybe another location nearby. On Fossiel.NET I found the location Carniol, which looks very promising! https://www.fossiel.net/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=148 Anyone got any tips on how to best find fossils and bring them home? How to look, how to take the fossils out, etc? Any tips or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance, Max
  23. From the album: Cretaceous

    Belemnitella americana (belemnite guards) Choristothyris plicta (brachiopods) Upper Cretaceous Navesink Formation Monmouth Group Upper tributary of Big Brook Colts Neck, N.J. All were collected on 6/18/18
  24. Hit the Big Brook area the other day. It was awfully hot but at least the brook offered some relief. Hardly found any shark teeth (I never do) but Belemnites were plentiful. Lot's of different bivalves as well. Sad to see that people were aggressively digging into the river bank when it's posted not to do so. Once the land owners bring up collapsing river banks due to fossil hunting I wouldn't be surprised if there were more restrictions implemented.

    NJ Belemnites

    Thought I'd share some photos of some belemnites we found in the Big Brook area of NJ. There were a few of us and this is our combined collection.
