Belemnites - assorted favourites from my collection
TqB posted a topic in Member CollectionsBelemnites 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
Looking for belemnite species - Jurassic (USA)
Fossilsforever posted a topic in Member Fossil Trades Bulletin BoardHello all, As a belemnite collector, I am looking for the American Jurassic species Pachyteuthis densus (Meek & Hayden, 1858). Does someone have this species and is willing to trade some examples of this particular species? Kind regards, Ruben The Netherlands
Belemnite fossil collection - rikermounts
Fossilsforever posted a topic in Member CollectionsHello all, I bought a collection box (rikermount) for some of my late Cretaceous belemnites (Belemnitella and Belemnella (pachybelemnella) sp.). The fossils are 70-66 million years old (to be more detailed: 70-68 and/or 70-67 mya). Just like other fossils, belemnites can be stored quite well in this kind of vitrine/case. Also good for storing some shark teeth or other fossils like (flat) plant fossils/impressions. Other collectors that have rikermounts with fossils? (perhaps a picture?)
Strange shaped rock with belemnites
Paolo997 posted a topic in Fossil IDHi Forum, always from the Omhden (DE) quarry, i collected this piece. I didn't personally took it from the rocks, but i found it while moving some other already broken rocks to reach new layers. I find it strange because while every other Omhden piece of rock is dark, this has a yellow/brown cover all over it surface, and instead of the 2D shape that almost every Omhden repert or layer has, it has strange 3D bubble shape. it includes lots of belemnites and some shells. In the quarry at first sight i thought at some sort of coprolite but because i am a beginner it can easily be anythi
C and D canal, Delaware
val horn posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI had heard that C and D canal site had new dumps. I had heard that the C and D site was going to be covered over, I had heard that it was removed/recycled. I went out last week to look. There are fewer dunes, and evidence of tractors and trucks, however there is still plenty of unchanged of material. It remains a harvest of belemnites and very little else.
Belemnites from Carniol France - Gargasian
R0b posted a topic in Fossil IDStill more sorting to do but the belemnites are done. I am struggling to understand the differences between the different Neohiboletes. looking at http://le-coin-a-fossiles.fr/Gargasien.html there are three known species also from the topic below there are diplobelenid phragmacones
Cretaceous of Limburg
Fossilsforever posted a topic in Fossil IDHello all, Today I found some very cool (and rare) Cretaceous fossils in Limburg (The Netherlands). Belemnites, one sea urchin (Echinocorys sp.) and 2 rare Phragmocones (from Belemnites) were also found (two on the left corner). And also sharkteeth! Can anyone help me with identifying the shark teeth? (max size is 1 cm). Kind regards, Ruben
(Late) Cretaceous fossils from the Netherlands (Limburg)
Fossilsforever posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello 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,
Sea urchin and other Cretaceous fossils - The Netherlands
Fossilsforever posted a topic in Fossil IDFound 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).
Fantastic cephalopods from Carniol!
Max-fossils posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHey 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
Finally Back to Big Brook
TonyC posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsFinally 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)
Fossilsforever posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello 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 posted a topic in Member CollectionsHello 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
Fossilsforever posted a topic in Paleo Re-creationsHello 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
Planko posted a topic in Fossil IDHello 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
gigantoraptor posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsSo 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
dhiggi posted a topic in Fossil IDFound 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
Fossildude19 posted a gallery image in Members Gallery
From the album: Fossildude's FindsThese 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
Manticocerasman posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsNatalie81 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.

Maastrichtian fieldtrip in Belgium
Manticocerasman posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsToday @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
Manticocerasman posted a topic in Member CollectionsI 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
belemniten posted a gallery image in Members Gallery
From the album: HolzmadenThese 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:
Two neat belemnites from Holzmaden
belemniten posted a topic in Member CollectionsHere 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
Wanted: a lot of mini belemnites - can trade or buy
Fitch1979 posted a topic in Member Fossil Trades Bulletin BoardHey 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!
