  1. Take a look at this Asialepidotes shingyiensis from Yunnan, China. It is a very nice fish. But do you see what's the problem?

    Yunnanozoon or something else?

    The longest one is roughly 2cm long. I’ve counted 12 on the rock, which itself is about 5cm long. All I know is that it’s from the Maotianshan shales in China. I was told it’s a Yunnanozoon, but I believe this is incorrect as the person I got it from is often wrong with their identifications.

    Rib of a Triassic Marine Reptile?

    This is found at Yunnan with Keichousaurus. Is it a rib bone of a Triassic marine reptile? It looks a bit too "curved" to me.
  4. How many Myllokunmingia specimens are known to science? I keep on seeing wildly varying numbers, ranging from 1 to close to 100, and I really want to get a straight answer.

    Eggshell ID?

    Hello, Any thoughts on this eggshell? Seller has a lot -- all from Nanyang in China. And sold as a bulk lot. But, of the three close in examples, can anyone ID them? I'm especially interested in the top most one. It has an unusual pattern to it with lots of long lines. There was a thread I had, I think from here, about ID'ing fossil eggshell and the different textures, but I can't find it now. Thanks The one on the right looks to be oviraptor?
  6. I went to a local fossil show and saw some highly priced insects too good to be true. They were. Some were done quite well but my $15 30X loupe (magnifying glass) really made the fakes obvious. I took these pics at the show. Pic 1 is presumably a Neuroptera on matrix. Pic 2 is the same Neuroptera though the loupe and you can see it is an obvious forgery. It has been painted. Pic 3 is an obvious painted insect on a piece with 2 cretaceous Lycoptera fish, raising its selling price at least 50 fold. The abdomen in this case is especially badly done. Pic 4 is a different kind of fake, it is an Od

    Small stubby tooth--crocodile?

    Hi, Any thoughts on this tooth? It is 1cm long, from QingLong City,HeBei Province--northeast Hebei, which is Jehol Biota. I am wondering if it is a type of crocodile tooth? Thanks
  8. Various Suidae, Antelope etc. If anyone can identify individual species, please let me know! Girrafid - I contacted an expert on this and while he couldn't give me an exact species he believed it was: "right lower canine of giraffid. Since canine of fossil giraffids are rarely found, I can only tell from the size that it might belong to Palaeotragus or a Palaeotragus-sized giraffid." Some kind of feline potentially. The seller wasn't exactly sure on species. And finally a big probable Dinocrocuta Gigantea tooth!

    Lower Cambrian trilobite help!

    Hi there! In my excitement to open a box of fossils gifted to me, I mixed up a couple of labels - hopefully someone out there can help me fix my mix-up @piranha The labels are Paleolenus lanlenoisi and Yunnanocephalus yunnanensis - both from the Lower Cambrian of Yunnan, China. Photo #1: Photo #2: Thanks in advance for your help!!!
  10. Just interested in the opinions of these Oviraptor Eggs I saw in a gallery They say they are from Nanxiong China, with minimal restoration. They look real to me especially with all the detailing on the shells and they are very heavy. The gallery seems to be reputable but I wanted to see what people on here thought.

    Yunnan Fossil Bone

    This fossil was from Yunnan, China. Of Triassic formation, same layer as Keichousaurus. It’s 55cm in length. Any idea what it is?

    Lobopodian or not?

    Someone is selling this fossil at auction, saying they don’t know what it is, but it might be a lobopodian. Any ideas?

    A skull--Jeholosaurus?

    Hello, I have been offered a skull--from Ganzhou. Am I correct in that it is a Jeholosaurus skull? Or at least that it is an ornithopod. I checked photos and the overall blunt shape looks similar to Jeholosaurus. I will likely have other photos soon. It also comes with some crushed/badly conditioned bones. Seller himself is unsure of the species. I do see though multiple different skull shapes online which are labelled Jeholosaurus---ones with more elongated snouts, ones with this stubby snouts. Thanks for the help.
  14. What is this thing? It looks like a platypus worm with spines coming out of its head. It’s from the Maotianshan Shale in Yunnan, China. What is it?
  15. The collector who I buy my Chinese pterosaur fossils from gave me some info about Psitaccosaurus fossils since I inquired about one he had. I thought I will share it here in case anybody is considering thinking about buying one. He isn't a commercial seller--a collector who sells fossils he finds and on behalf of fossil collectors, who I hope it doesn't break the rules of discussing sellers to post what he informed me. Think it's useful for people to know "The Psittacosaurus fossil. Please always remember that you get what you pay for. Most Psittacosaurus are chucked together.

    An unusual claw/hand/foot

    Hi Would love some thoughts on this. Not the best condition, but unusual. A fossil hand. 7cm long from.end to tip From a place called Aronqi, Neimemgu Province (Inner Mongolia) Jehol Biota. Arongqi is also called Arun Banner. The long finger is curious. I thought amphibian-- could it be frog foot? Thanks as always

    Xinpusaurus from Guizhou, China?

    Are these two marine reptiles Xinpusaurus? It is from Guanling, Guizhou of the Triassic formation. By the way, there seems to be some vertebral bones inside the body of the bigger one, any idea what is that?
  18. I live in NYC, and it was a real treat to see a street fair pop up on Broadway after all this covid stuff. Looked like the city was finally back to normal, including rock shop tents selling crystals and fossils off the sidewalk. I wish I'd taken a photo of the fossils, but this seller had four Claudiosaurus fossils that were obviously painted onto the matrix with a bit of dremel work to give them dimension. Price tag: a lot. Gotta be careful out there, friends. I've learned to be so wary from you guys, especially @Troodon.
  19. Hello all. Need an opinion on this egg. Its an Dendroolithus egg from Kaoguo formation Xixia Basin Hunan provence China. The seller said its annhadrosaur egg possibly from a saurolophus. The egg is +- 15 cm Thank in advance
  20. Greetings! This is my first share on this forum. I was looking through my collections, and one thing popped my mind was this tooth -- a tooth of Xiongguanlong baomoensis,which i found in 2014 but I could not give a very conclusive identification until earlier this year. I was lucky enough to travel along with a group of scientists into the Gobi desert in Northern China. That day we was traveling in the border zone of three different provinces, basically middle of nowhere. This basin is where most dinosaur from Gansu found -- including X. baomoensis, Auroraceratop rugo
  21. Hi guys I'm new here! Hope to find everybody well! I just want to ask for your feedback around a specimen of Keichousaurus I'm nearly to buy. What do you think? Does it seems real and legit to you? Many thanks for your kind feedback. Cap

    A bird tooth?

    Hello Am I right that these are bird teeth? Yixian, China, Jehol Biota. Dawangzhangzi Bed. I have looked at pictures of Hell Creek bird teeth and they have a similar, triangular shape and two points at the bottom, which makes me think bird. Though, at almost 1cm it seems large for a bird tooth. From what I can see, Yixian birds are much smaller. And this tooth is even larger than Avisaurus. If not a bird, could it be a fish? Though, again nothing described seems to fit.
