    mantelliceras dixoni

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    In lower Cenomanian the strange Ammonite "Mantelliceras" occurs. When you go to "Teutoburger Wald Area" in the north and north-east they are grey and compressed. I will post some over time. In the south, Haarstrang-Region and Ruhrgebiet, they can be very very nice, like this unusual white Mantelliceras dixoni, size is around 6 cm

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    the most common ammonit in the westfalian cenomanian is Schloenbachia varians. Mostly around 4 - 6 cm in diameter, like the shown one. But..., normally really not as good as this one

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    In southern munsterland basin it is sometimes possible to dig in cenomanian sediments. Fossils are rare, but sometimes real beauties like this fine, 4 cm "big" Nautiloide Pseudocenoceras

    Enchodus Jaw

    Last weekend we have been to the coast of France to look for fossils in the chalk. We found the usual ammonites, but I also saw some fish remains sticking out of a boulder. At first I thought to leave it since it looked very brittle. Natalie convinced me to take my time to try to extract it. She put some paraloid on it in the field and I removed the fossil with a knife. At home she consolidated the matrix and prepped the piece. She sure was right to take the fossil home , it turned out to be a really nice Enchodus Jaw. (moral of the story, always listen to the missus

    Hunstanton Cretaceous mysteries

    Mostly my finds from Hunstanton are readily intelligible, but these are some I'm struggling with. Red rock: Hunstanton Formation, Cretaceous, Albian Stage White rock: Ferriby Chalk Formation, Cretaceous, Cenomanian Stage The first are two mysteries from the Hunstanton Formation. As always, any help is greatly appreciated!

    Cenomanian fossils

    Hi everyone, I am not a specialist in paleontology, I would like some help in identifying these 3 stones. I found them in clay from a marine environment dating from the Cenomanian... It seems to me that there is a bivalve, a vermiform fossil (?) and one resembling a degraded bone. I do not know well the paleontological discoveries of my region, I just know that there was the discovery of a vertebra of a marine reptile and the tooth of a sauropod. Thanks a lot for your help

    Ferriby Chalk piece - tubercle?

    Hunstanton, Ferriby Chalk, Cretaceous, Cenomanian. When I found this piece I was looking for echinoids, so saw it and thought tubercle. I've kept it with my Ferriby echinoids, but I'm not convinced that's what this is, there's nothing about it to me that looks echinoid except for this little tubercle like shape. Beside it is another similar ring. If it's part of a test, something really bad happened to it, it must be a broken folded test. But I was wondering if I was always on the wrong track with the idea it was echinoderm related. Any assistance is greatly appreciated
  10. Hello forum members! With the new Coronavirus raging across the world, I thought it would be nice to start some kind of advent calendar, using my own Squalicorax collection. Everyday I will post one or multiple Squalicorax teeth from one location. Let's see what ends sooner, my collection or the virus outbreak. I will start with the oldest tooth from the Albian substage and end with the teeth from the uppermost substage; the Maastrichtian. The first one is the oldest and also one of the smallest teeth in my collection. Unfortunately it is so sma

Suture is extremely simplified consisting of rounded, narrow lobes and wide rounded saddles. Cross section is variable from compressed to slightly inflated. Venter is variable from wide to narrow trapezoidal or simply rounded and in some species ornamented by fine crenulations. Sculpture is variable, too, ranging from smooth, unornamented forms to flexuous and ventrally ornamented forms. d’Orbig
  13. During the Christmas holiday we had the opportunity to go on 2 field trips to the north of France. 1st one was just after Christmas when we visited the Turonian part of the cliffs. Here we found a couple of nice ammonites ( Mammites nodosoides and a realy nice Fagesia catinus ) and a big flint echinoid. (with @Natalie81 and @Euhoplites) The second trip was last weekend, but we had no luck with the weather this time and we had heavy rainfall for most of the day. Also lots of competition that day. Not a lot of fossils to be found that day: a small flint echi

    Ammonite ID (central texas)

    Hey y'all, here's an ammonite I found in what I'm fairly sure is a small, unmapped Eagle Ford outcrop. I'm hoping to use it as an index fossil, as the target species that I'm hoping this outcrop will produce occurs in the late cenomanian/early turonian Bouldin Flags member of the Eagle Ford formation. I find that the written descriptions that I've read about the bouldin flags geology are inadequate for my understanding, as it seems colors, shades, and degree of textures are up to the interpretation of the reader. Maybe I'm just overthinking that though. Hopefully this ammo helps.

    New trip to the chalk of France

    Last Saturday, Natalie and I went for a trip to the chalk cliffs in Northern France. We got there early and we were surprised at the parking by a friend who happened to have the same idea as us . @Euhoplites So now we were 3 to hit the beach. We were quite lucky with the weather, at least dry, and not to cold for this time of the year. We did get a decent haul to, a few ammonites, a se urchin, a realy nice nautiloid. Natalie also found some pretty shark teeth. The best find for me that day was a rare and very well preserved ammonite Hyphoplites falcatus. Enjoy th

    Charentes Amber (Fouras Peninsula, ~100.5-98 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    Select specimens of Charentes amber, 5.5g in total weight (far right specimen is 2.9g, 20x19x16mm); these are the more attractive specimens of a 45.5g lot, while most are opaque with a light yellow-beige coloration; some have transparent layers alongside translucent and opaque layers, and one specimen has a marcasite inclusion near its center. This material is extremely fragile and low-fractile, crumbling quite easily. Since 2005 the original site on Fouras for this amber has since been developed, and is no longer accessible; what few exposures do remain yield very little material (this is als

    SAPINDOPSIS ANHOURYI. cenomanian. En Nammoura, Libanon
  18. The Kem Kem Beds are full of poorly understood Dinosaurs but the isolated material that wind up in collections are beautiful. The Beds consist of three formations: Ifezouane, Aoufous and Akrabou. I believe the first one is your primary Dinosaur producing layer in the Cenomanian age. The teeth that we see bombarding us at shows and online give us clues to the spectacular dinosaurs that roamed that region. Claws give us another perspective and by associating them to other regions we obtain more hints of what they looked like. A Dinosaur that no one needs introduction is Spinosaurus. I

    Texas fossil shell

    I'm visiting family in San Antonio, Texas, and have been doing a little fossil hunting as well, including in a nearby creek. Based on a local geologic map, I believe this creek mostly exposes the Edwards Group (Albian age), though there appear to be some younger (Cenomanian age) rocks from the Del Rio Formation mixed in as well, based on an Ilymatogyra arietina shell that I found a couple of days ago. This creek isn't very fossiliferous. In about 3 hours of searching, I've only found a single I. arietina and a few small shell impressions in rocks. However, today, I also found the rock below an

    Kem Kem Vertebrae ID Thread

    So, lets figure out vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds. As many of you know the Kem Kem beds has a pretty enigmatic palaeo fauna. There is some literature about it, but not a whole lot. Some of it is behind a paywall and much information is pretty scattered. So I got this idea that maybe we could combine our knowledge and information to collectively get a better picture of which bone belongs to which animal, in this case, vertebrae. I know some of you have some fantastic specimens in your collections, if we combine these in this thread we might be able to see some patterns. We probabl
  21. Hello all, Last Saturday our geology club went on a field trip to the Breckweg limestone quarry in Rheine, Germany. Although my main interest lies with minerals, I found a nice fossil. I have been trying to identify it, but unfortunately without any succes. I hope you can help me out. According to the information I received, the limestone found at the quarry is from the Cenomanian. Thanks in advance!
  22. Some interesting paleontology news online: https://www.ktnv.com/news/nevadas-first-dinosaur-discovery-revealed-in-henderson https://www.fox5vegas.com/news/local/dinosaur-discovery-nevada-species-name-fossil-revealed/article_cd6e905c-1cfe-11ec-90c6-ab3978a19f6c.html Nevada is often associated with casinos, mining, Hoover Dam, and top-secret military bases (e.g. Area 51 and the Tonopah Air Base), but the discovery of "Nevadadromeus" from the Cenomanian-age Willow Tank Formation provides a new window into dinosaur distribution in the western US during the Albian-Cenomanian i
  23. Hi everyone, Last week after getting lots of recommendations from people I spend a couple of days at Cap Blanc Nez in France to look for some fossils. And while it wasn't to most bountyfull hunt I did have a lot of fun and I was very pleased with the little finds that I managed to do. We had very nice weather, it was sunny and the temperature was just perfect for fossil hunting, and the cliffs and beach (and landscape overall) were absolutely stunning. The fossils in Cap Blanc Nez date back to the Cretaceous and there are deposits from the Turonian, Cenoma

  25. We know for many formations how would look like back to their age. We know for Morrison, Hell Creek, Elrhaz and many more. But, what about Kem Kem? Was a tropical forest with many rivers like the some million years older Elrhaz in Niger, was a environment like the modern north Africa with some dry regions and some regions with big rivers? Sure has many freshwater because we know aquatic predators like spinosaurids and crocodiles, lungfish etc. But, we can have a more accurate image?
