    From the album: Hippurites colliciatus Woodward, 1855 from St. Bartholomä, Styria, Austria

    East of Kalchberg, point 25, collected 08/12/2018. Incomplete specimen, shell heavily bored by clionid sponges.
  2. Finally the Judith River Formation has a Tyrannosaurid described from that deposit. Paper describes a transitional species of Daspletosaurus from the Judith River Formation of eastern Montana, Daspletosaurus wilsoni https://peerj.com/articles/14461/ "Significantly further east than classical JRF deposits" "D. wilsoni sp. nov., a stratigraphic and morphological intermediate between D. torosus and D. horneri, is hypothesized to represent a transitional form along an anagenetic lineage linking both previously n
  3. A new hadrosauridae, Malefica deckerti is described in this publication. It's from the Aguja Formation of Texas. This was initially assigned to cf Kritosaurus navajovius in 2002. The holotype appears to be just a partial left maxilla Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667122002804
  4. Took a trip today to one of my new Ozan spots that is rapidly becoming a favorite, despite the headache it is to reach. Although the finds are few and far between, I've always come out with something I haven't seen before. It's definitely been testing my ID skills. I didn't come out with too many things, but I've got a couple I would like to get some informed opinions on. First up is a regular urchin. I've found a few fragments of regular echinoids washed out within a small stretch of creek. Though this is the third I've seen, its the first of this appearance and first to safely ma
  5. Hello all, This weekend another fossil hunt in Cretaceous sediments in the Netherlands (late late Campanian, early Maastrichtian, around 72-66 mya (whole late Maastrichtian) and/or (more specific) 70.8-67/70.8-68 mya). The wetter was good, a bit warm and even sometimes humid. Found some typical Cretaceous fossils. Mainly Belemnites from the species Belemnitella sp. and Belemnella (pachybelemnella) sp. Perhaps some B. (pachybelemnella) obtusa (Schulz, 1979) and one fragment of a sea urchin (Echinocorys sp.). Compared to American sites (for example New Jersey), a re
  6. The first definitive Corythosaurus sp. from the Judith River Formation is described in this paper Paywalled https://anatomypubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ar.25097
  7. More and more dinosaur material is becoming available from the Judith River Formation. I see lots of misidentified material and some with questionable localities that might fit other deposits. I would like to summarize what I believe is currently known and published. If you see any omissions or errors, please let me know. Not a lot of good maps out there to show the formation but here are two. In general, the exposures are in North Central Montana. Horner describes the formation on the western end is near the east end of the Sweetgrass Hills (very thick about 152 meters) and
  8. Year ago two friends of mine found some nice teeth and vertebraes from Squalicorax. As they were found close together - what is very unusual - we decided to write a small paper about it. We came to the solution that the verts and teeth belong to the skull-region of the shark. Finds like this are very rare, not many published till now. Journal was "APH" (www.ap-h.de), founded in Hannover. A nice Paper (now existing 50 Years!), 4 issues a year full of papers about northern germany fossils and more 49-61 (Raquet).pdf
  9. A few months ago I had the opportunity to collect a bunch of matrix from the Cretaceous aged (Campanian) Ozan Formation of North Texas in the "red beds". The larger fraction is rich in sharks teeth and other small macro fauna. After breaking down the matrix, I have put it through a number of sieves to facilitate picking and sorting. I have available lots of very fine matrix that made it through my 60 mesh sieve (so it is all smaller than 250 microns or ~0.25 mm). In this fraction I see lots of forams, some ostracods, and some other very small fossils. I am not really equipped to pick and

    Belemnitella mucronata, Hannover

    Belemnites are common in the upper cretaceous of NW-Germany. One of the nicest one is the upper campanian Belemnitella mucronata. This Belemnit got´s his name "mucronata" from "mucros", the tip at the top. Size is around 8 cm, Hannover
  11. More and more dinosaur material is becoming available from the Two Medicine Formation. I see lots of misidentified material and some with questionable localities that might fit other deposits. I would like to summarize what I believe is currently known and published. If you see any omissions or errors, please let me know Not a lot of good maps out there to show the formation but here are two. The TMF is about 650 meters thick and is the western equivalent of the Judith River Formation. Most of the sediments were deposited in streams, rivers and lakes. It overlies the Virgel
  12. Hello everyone! This is a partial mosasaur jaw with other associated bones i found in the Early-Mid Campanian Woodbury Formation of New Jersey over the summer. One of my best finds to date.

    Strange cretaceous fossil ID

    Hello. Needing help to ID this strange fossil. Found in a quarry i Scania, southern Sweden. Lowermost lower campanian. Sandy biocalcarenites. Nearshore enviroment. The quarry have produced a number of rare, still unidentified fossils both marine and terrestrial. Findings of mosasaurs, marine crocodylomorphs, aquatic birds, flying reptiles, bony fishes, sharks and also neaceratopsian dinosaurs have been made in the quarry. I have sent pictures of this fossil to a local expert at Lunds University but it´s still unidentified. The brown bone seems to end
  14. I would like to share a typical "day off & out" during summer. During summer, I don´t do serious prospecting. Too hot, too green, too much distraction, like blueberries and mushrooms. So, last Sunday (07/03/2022), I mainly explored an area for "fruits" and visited two fossil sites discovered in October 2021. It was hiking-only, no driving between the various "stops". I found lots of blueberries (not fully ripe yet at 900 m asl), but it was much too dry for mushrooms. Nevertheless, I found a few places with a few Cantharellus cibarius: Some of them were even growing on extre

    Fish jaw? ID Campanian Sweden

    Found this bone of what I think is a jaw from a fish. Åsen locality Scania Sweden. Upper lower Campanian. Nearshore/deltaic enviroment. Greensand. Bone is 6 cm long and has a row of small "sockets" for teeth? Fish teeth found on the location is Enchodus, Protosphyraena, Pachyrhizodus... other finds include Tylosaurus, Clidastes, sharks, rays, turtles and chimaerids. Happy for any help on ID.
  16. Fossil snails of the genus Trochactaeon from Kainach near Voitsberg, Styria, Austria (Gosau-Group of Kainach, upper Cretaceous) - Summary of this years prospection Introduction Snails of the extinct genus Trochactaeon (formerly part of the genus Actaeonella) are among the most familiar fossils of the upper Cretaceous Gosau-Group of the Austrian Alps. The rather large size of some species (>10 cm), their intriguing spiral pattern in transverse sections and plenty supply, based on many mass occurrence, make them particularly popular. Some well known occurrences in Austria, di
  17. Identification of theropod teeth from the Two Medicine formation is always a challenge even for the more experienced collector. Sellers whether its a dealer or auction site also struggle with identifications and sometimes just shotgun it. So I decided to put this together as an quick aide in providing you some information. Among the sources used is the reference book Dinosaur Systematics by Ken Carpenter and Phillip Currie... its an excellent reference source. This aide is for the more common teeth collected and sold, not for more obscure theropods. I'm sure mistakes/omissions have been made,

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    One of my mostly loved sponges, Becksia soekelandi. Fragile, thin, hard to prepare. But..., always very cool. Comes from the lower Campanian of Coesfeld, same locality the Coeloptychium comes from. Height around 8 cm

  19. I recently acquired some matrix via trade from @will stevenson. This matrix is from Hallencourt France. Just the second time we gotten to go through the entire process of breaking down matrix to a searchable form. I am still in the process of breaking it down and only have searched probably less than 20%. I wanted to begin the post now as I had a few minutes to write. The material is Early Campanian in age and from the North of France. Unlike my first experience breaking matrix down which was from a location with no publication, there is a publication.

    Baculites scotti

    From the album: Cretaceous Fossils of North America

    Baculites scotti. Found near Wasta, South Dakota, USA. In the Pierre Shale Formation. Upper Cretaceous - Middle Campanian. Approximately 45 mm.
  21. Recently visited the Green Mill Run area in NC and found some fossils that thought would peak some interest but need the help of identification. I know the site can have a bit Cretaceous but also Eocene and Pliocene, so it can make it harder to identify things. The first one I assume might be crocodylian or maybe turtle, not sure. Those thick grooves make me think maybe crocodylian. The second seems like, from looking at the root base, a possible theropod tooth? I thought maybe claw of a turtle, but seeing that thick base makes me think otherwise. Lastly fou

    Goblin Shark Tooth

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Scapanorhyncus texanus (Roemer, 1852) From the Late Cretaceous spoils of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal, Reedy Point, Delaware Microfossil - 7.6 mm Not the best example of a shark tooth, but a rare find for Reedy Point. Most shark teeth were found further west.

    Mandible with teeth

    Hello, I have a specimen of a mandible with teeth for your scrutinization. It was found some years ago in the Campanian St. Bartholomä-Formation of the Gosau-Group of Kainach, Eastern Alps, in Styria, Austria. I am little bit concerned about the bone texture and also the arrangement of the teeth. It seems it could be in urgent need for visiting a really skilled orthodondist. What do you think, does it really need some medical treatment? Many thanks for all your comments! Franz Bernhard

    interesting cretaceous oddity

    It seems that every time I post in the fossil ID lately, it's something my friends found when they were with me - brand new eyes are really good at avoiding the "routine" we get into when hunting, and they produce all sorts of crazy cool finds as a result. Here are some field photos of something I suspect is fish scales - I can ask her for better photos if needed. Ozan formation, mid-campanian of the cretaceous, Texas Here's a side angle I took so that the ridge is more evident: thoughts?
