    Fish from Brazil - Species?

    Hi gang, I attended the east coast mineral and fossil show this weekend and picked up a neat fish from Brazil for my collection. The dealer couldn’t remember the ID. It doesn’t appear to be Vinctifer Comptoni which is really the only fish I’m familiar with from that region. Can anyone help me with an ID? Thanks!
  3. Hi forum ! Many thanks for accepting me and very glad to join Please help ID this fish. I have no any knowledge in fossils weight of rock 1795 gr. Length of rock 330 mm, width 109 mm, height 33mm, length of fish 287 mm ( without the possible horn with horn approx. 295 mm ) , height 82 mm. Please notice in the photo of the rock that I have poured water on it, the fish seems to have some kind of a horn in front of its head. Possible Creataceous period ? Origin: My father in merchant navy had bought it in Brazil
  4. I`m looking for the id of this fossil fish from the santana formation brazil. It`s around 60cm long. Thanks
  5. Scientists campaign for the return of fossils from Ubirajara jubatus, the new Brazilian dinosaur –Science, ksuadmin. The Sentinel, University of Kansas, January 14, 2021 The paper, which has been "removed temporarily," is: Smyth, R.S., Martill, D.M., Frey, E., Rivera-Sylva, H.E. and Lenz, N., 2020. A maned theropod dinosaur from Gondwana with elaborate integumentary structures. Cretaceous Research, p.104686. There might be even more controversy: [dinosaur] The name 'Ubirajara' is not available - Dinosaur Mailing List You
  6. I recently inherited this fossil fish from my stepdad, who traded a pair of moccasins for it at a rock show in the 80s. The seller claimed it was from the Green River formation, but given the matrix, color, and three dimensionality I highly doubt that. A quick Google search leads me to believe it’s probably from the Santana formation in Brazil and possibly a Rhacolepis buccalis? I’m a geology student but living in invertebrate country I can’t say I know a lot about fish identification I’m happy to add more pictures as needed or provide what little info I can. Thanks in advance!

    New Abelisaurid from Brazil

    The attached paper describes a new Abelisaurid from the lower Cretaceous of Brazil: Spectrovenator ragei . Its a good paper to keep as a reference source when trying to identify material from other geographic areas like Morocco http://sciencepress.mnhn.fr/fr/periodiques/comptes-rendus-palevol/19/6

  10. I saw this while I was searching for Crato Formation fish for sale and I found this turtle that sold quite awhile ago online. On closer inspection it looks carved and painted on, but I wanted to see what everyone else thought!

    Show Me Your Best Fossils From Brazil!

    Brazil has some of the most incredible fossils in the world, and I feel not enough appreciation is given, especially to the fish of the Crato Formation! I have briefly been obsessed with the fossils from Brazil as I purchased my first and only fish from there, a small Dastilbe! With the import ban these fish are becoming rarer and rarer I would love to see what some of the older people got while the market was still open! I would also be interested in seeing the isolated teeth from the Spinosaurid from Crato!

    Fossilized Fish - Brazil

    Members, during a trip to Brazil almost 20 years ago, I purchased this composit of 4 different fossilized fish. The fossils of the fish look authentic and I tried to take photos to demonstate the relief of each fish. But I beleive they were "arranged" into this one piece. Not sure if and how getting 4 fossils into one piece is done. I am more interested in knowing if the fish are indeed authentic and what the individual species of each are? Also, is it possible to gague what period they are from? I am hoping someone will tell me that I did not haul this 10 lb piece

    Brazil Mystery Fossil -verts?

    Hello all. Any insight on this unidentified fossil, originally from Brazil (old collection). I'm presuming the Santana Formation, given that the matrix looks so similar to some insect specimens I've seen. It appears to be a string of small vertebra --- but beyond that, I have no clue what the heck I might be looking at. Please see images, which includes extreme close-ups. [P.S., this is the 1st of 5 specimens that I'm posting for ID today; I deeply appreciate any insight that you can provide]. With gratitude, Ryan

    Unknown Fish IDs

    I am currently going through some of the fossils I bought when I was a kid. The fossils I am looking to potentially have ID’d are a few fish fossils that I bought from a couple museum gift shops. For this reason, I do not have much info on them which I realize could hurt my chances of getting them ID’d. I thought I would give it a shot and see if anyone recognized these fish. 1.

  20. Good morning folks. I have what I believe is Vinctifer (Gar) species fossil fish. It was listed only as "Fossil fish, Brazil" and was located in Brazil. My research reflects it's from the Cretaceous, Santana Formation, Brazil. The fish appears to be "belly up". I carefully removed some matrix to see if the hidden portion was sill there, but gave up as the matrix is too hard. It will be glued back. Am I off base with the ID? Help please.
  21. Hi everyone! I've been looking at this fossil and have been interested in acquiring it, but I wanted to post some photos and see what you think. Is it real of fake? Thanks for your time!

    is it a Dinosaur Egg ?

    Hi all, Dear experts, first of all I would like to acknowledge to everyone that keeps the Fossil forum alive ! It's awesome. Secondly, I would like to share with you what I have here, I took this egg shape rock ( at least I think it is a rock) back in Brazil, Peruibe close to Jureia Ecological State- when I was kayaking in 1989-1990 ....since them I've been carrying it with me and I always thought if someone could tell me if it is a dinosaur egg or just a rock. If someone can give me an expert opinion I would really appreciate. Thank you,
