  1. New Species Of Fossil Found Along Calvert Cliffs, Calvert County By Calvert Marine Museum, The Bay Net Local Fossil Enthusiasts Discover New Fossils At Calvert Cliffs Calvert Marine Museum, The Southern Maryland Chronicle, January 12, 2022 The paper is: Godfrey, S.J. and Carnevale, G., 2021. A new cobia (Teleostei, Rachycentridae) species from the Miocene St. Marys Formation along Calvert Cliffs, Maryland, USA. Journal of Paleontology, 95(3), pp.630-637. Yours, Paul H.
  2. Yesterday I scouted Calvert Cliffs Beach to see if my friends would be able to join me on a fossil hunt there. As this was only my third lifetime hunt, I'd only been to Matoaka prior, and wanted to see if the path to the Calvert Beach was accessible enough for a friend using a cane and someone more out of shape than I am. That said, I'm not fit myself, so the 3.6-mile hike to and from the beach was not easy. However, it was gorgeous! As many people will tell you online, the cliffs at Calvert Beach are not legally accessible; the state park service has closed off access to them due

    Miocene Bivalve id's

    These fossils were purchased by me from a friend who had received them 30yrs ago. In the box they were in was a paper that read "Miocene, Calvert Cliffs, MD. Though some have argued that they are Florida fossils...I found id's for all but a couple from: "Vokes, H.E., 1957, Miocene fossils of Maryland: Maryland Geological Survey Bulletin 20, 85 p". I was wondering if anyone could id the two left...the single fossil photos? Thanks Greg

    New Bay Mystery

    Hi everyone. I went to Calvert Cliffs last week & found an interesting piece of bone. I have dozens of bone fragments from the Bay, but almost all of them are linear. This one is much more rounded. It is slightly bigger than a quarter. It might be too small to identify, but I thought it was worth sharing. It doesn't look turtle-y to me, but I guess that is a possibility.
  5. I found this bone end along the bay in Maryland last weekend, and wondered if there’s enough there for someone to identify what beast it might have come from. It’s hollow so possibly avian? But not necessarily... Thanks for looking!

    Tiger shark symphyseal tooth?

    I was going through some of my shark teeth from the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) in Maryland, and this Galeocerdo aduncus tooth caught my eye due its somewhat unusual shape (not including the fact that it's broken on one corner). I'm wondering if it might be a symphyseal tooth. From reading past forum posts, it seems like there's a range of Galeocerdo symphyseal shapes, from symphyseals that are pretty symmetrical to ones that are less so (such as mine, if it is one). For those more familiar with these teeth than I am, what do you think?
  7. I’ve never been collecting in the Chesapeake Bay before and am gonna visit the area soon during low tide. Which locality (beach, site) produces a good quantity and diversity of fossils. I’m not fixated on finding big megalodon teeth. I’d love to find a nice *Ecophora* and maybe some dolphin teeth. Species diversity would be nice.

    Help with ID please

    A friend of mine found this bone a little south of Calvert Cliffs state park. Is there any way to tell if it was a land or aquatic mammal?
  9. We decided to take a vacation down to the Solomon's to celebrate our anniversary with a whole bunch of fossil hunting. For our first time out to the area, I'd call the trip a resounding success! We managed to visit the Calvert Cliffs State Park, Matoaka Beach, Cove Point & also attempted to visit Flag Ponds though the park was almost always at capacity. Our goal was to focus on shark's teeth though we wound up finding a larger array of non-shark material instead. Perhaps a reflection of the large influx of new to the hobby collectors focusing heavily on teeth? Overall, my impre
  10. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu

    Shark teeth

    Just trying to get a feel on what people would call these two teeth from Calvert cliffs.
  12. Below is my third artificial tooth set for an extinct shark, this time for the Maryland Miocene tiger/tiger-like shark(s) Galeocerdo aduncus/Physogaleus contortus. This adds to the artificial tooth sets I previously constructed for Striatolamia striata and Hemipristis serra. For this tooth set, I’ve presented G. aduncus and P. contortus as the same species, with the former contributing the upper and the latter the lower teeth in the dentition. The possibility that these species are the same is further discussed in a recent topic started by @WhodamanHD here; I relied on Applegate’s
  13. Following up on the artificial tooth set I recently constructed for the Paleocene sand tiger shark Striatolamia striata, I decided to see if I could put one together for the Miocene snaggletooth, Hemipristis serra, using teeth I've collected along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. I haven't found a great resource for an H. serra dentition, but I consulted a few different sources to get a sense for the arrangement, including Fossilguy.com, J-elasmo (which has a dentition for the extant H. elongata), and various TFF threads. The resulting tooth set is below. While I've fou

    Hammerhead tooth?

    I decided to go through my Carcharhinus teeth, since I have no hammerhead teeth. What do you think about the one on the left?
  17. I was going through my collection and found this tooth in with my Carcharias (Sand Tiger) teeth from Bayfront Park, Calvert Cliffs (Miocene). It doesn't resemble the others and I wondered if it might be something else. It is 7/8 of an inch tall. Thanks.
  18. I have been meaning to post my Calvert Cliffs mystery bones for awhile, and I keep finding more, so I finally took some pics to share. These are all Miocene finds collected on different trips over the last 12 months. I would be grateful for any help with ID.

    Matoaka 2-10-21

    I made it out to Matoaka Beach bright and early this morning on a day off. While I didn’t find a ton in the shark teeth department, I did nab my largest whale vert to date, a large ray dermal denticle, and some other nice Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) finds.

    Matoaka 1-30-21

    I made it out to Matoaka yesterday before today’s snowstorm and had a successful Maryland Miocene hunt, despite a large amount of ice obscuring the shoreline. (I won’t complain about the cold after @RuMert’s trip report yesterday. ) I found an unusually high number of cetacean vertebrae and cookies (epiphyses), several Ecphoras, shark teeth, and some other nice finds. This Carcharodon hastalis tooth was waiting for me when I arrived on the beach. And this cookie was just a few feet away. Off to a good start! Heading north, the ice got progressiv

    My Best Megalodon Tooth Yet!

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here on the forum in what feels like forever. I'd like to be active here again, and thought there was no better way to kick it off than showcasing my meg tooth! Some of you may have already seen the tooth on my Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube, but I wanted to make a post on here as well. I found the tooth last week along Calvert Cliffs. It's approximately 4.1" slant height and in near perfect condition. It even has that iconic Calvert Blue color on the crown that I love so much! I've been dreaming about finding a tooth like this ever since I start
  22. Slow day on the beach, not finding much of anything, when right before I turn around to head back I see a perfect 4” Meg sitting in ankle deep water! Total trip maker!

    Great Day at Matoaka

    Recently, I haven't been having tremendous luck along the Calvert Cliffs, but I headed down to Matoaka Beach again yesterday and was rewarded with one of my best fossil hunts to date! I arrived around 10am, a couple of hours before low tide, and the Chesapeake Bay was as still as I've ever seen it in the year since I started fossil hunting. A little wave action can often be helpful to kick up fossils, so from the top of the cliffs I wasn't expecting much. But as it turned out, the water was extremely clear, which helped me find more submerged fossils than I usually find, and there

    Mystery Bone Fragments?

    So, I know bone fragments are notoriously hard / impossible to fully identify. Unfortunately, they are my favorite things to pick up I am happy with most of my collection remaining unknown, but there are a couple pieces I feel may have more identifying characteristics? I'm very new to identifying fossils so please let me know if its something obvious or if they aren't even bone fragments to begin with! I will describe each piece and then post photos below. 1. Found at Douglas Point, Nanjemoy WMA in Maryland. Less than an inch long, black, grooved, shiny, looks a lot like many of m
  25. Hi all, Something different for today. I discovered this vertebra in the surf at Matoaka Cabins roughly 2 years ago. For those of you that don’t know, the rocks here are Miocene in age and preserve a nearshore marine environment. Cetacean remains are common, but other mammals (esp terrestrial) are not. Originally I thought it was a turtle vert, but now I’ve realized that it’s mammalian and possibly terrestrial in origin. It passed the burn test, by the way. My thought is that it is from a small mammal’s tail, as it closely resembles other mammalian caudal vertebrae. I’ve includ
