    Dinosaur or mammal toe bone?

    This bone was found at Zhucheng, Shandong Province of China. Any idea if it is dionsaurian or mammalian? It looks like a toe bone.

    Bashunosaurus paper

    When I read the recent paper describing the new macronarian sauropod Yuzhoulong qurensis, I surprisingly happened to come upon mention of the name Bashunosaurus in a passage of this paper comparing Yuzhoulong with Bashunosaurus, and that an unnoticed publication by Kuang (2004) buried in the reference section for the Yuzhoulong paper is cited by Dai et al. when distinguishing Yuzhoulong with Bashunosaurus. Although Bashunosaurus kaijiangensis was long considered to be a nomen nudum due to it being mentioned without description in the paper by Ouyang (1989) describing the macronarian sauropod
  4. Is this harpes trilobite real from China. Its from Yunnan. Also, if anyone knows the formation this could have come from it would be nice.
  5. Quite regularly, questions turn up about the authenticity of Keichosaurus fossil specimens. Until now, most, if not all, were natural, but mostly just very poorly prepped. Would you like to show off "real" fakes, casts or replicas of Keichosaurus? I would like to get a feeling for them, at least from pics. If there already exists such a topic somewhere else in the forum, please put a link in this topic. Thank you very much! Franz Bernhard
  6. A new sauropod-related paper: Dai, H., Tan, C., Xiong, C., Ma, Q., Li, N., Yu, H., Wei, Z., Wang, P., Yi, J., Wei, G., You, H., and Ren, X., 2022. New macronarian from the Middle Jurassic of Chongqing, China: phylogenetic and biogeographic implications for neosauropod dinosaur evolution. Royal Society Open Science 9 (11). 220794. doi:10.1098/rsos.220794. While reading the paper by Dai et al. describing Yuzhoulong, I happened to notice that Bashunosaurus kaijiangensis (usually tossed off as a nomen nudum synonymous with Datousaurus) is compared to Yuzhoulong based on an
  7. Here is a small skull of a reptile, about 4cm in length, does it look like Macrocnemus fuyuanensis or is it a marine reptile? Note the very long and slender neck.
  8. This is a tortoise fossil from Hezheng, China. Unlike the other white coloured tortoise fossils, it's black in colour. Is it painted or naturally black in colour due to phosphatization?

    Saurichthys eating a coelacanth?

    Here is a skull of Saurichthys from Yunnan, China with its mouth wide open, you can see there is a small fish at its mouth, look like the Saurichthys was eating the small fish. The small fish, half embedded in matrix, looks like a coelacanth by its tail, any idea if it is a coelacanth or a Gymnoichthys inopinatus?
  10. Hi everyone! Its been a while since I posted. I was waiting for this new piece, arguably the most stunning and most certainly the rarest fossil in my collection. Here we have a Manchurochelys manchoukuoensis fossil from China, acquired from one of my good friends and fellow collectors here in the Netherlands. Now its extremely hard to certify the authenticity of a piece like this, however I can 100% say that all the bones are original. There has been some restoration done, these fossils never come out of the ground in one piece so it doesn't bother me. I tried to s

    Mysterious skeleton fossil from China

    Hi all. As per request on my last post about the dinosaur eggs. Here is my fossil skeleton inside its matrix from Jiangxi, China. Bought it cheap, no clue what it is or what it could be. I can clearly see a skull, and what appears to be a claw or a hand. Nothing to see on the other side, I assume the rest of the skeleton is inside the matrix. Any help wil be appreciated, but I have let alot of knowledgable people look at it and no one was able to give me anything clear.

    My hadrosaur nest

    Hi people! Thanks to all the nice people here I wanted to share the pictures of some of my fossils. I wanted to start with what is currently my proudest and most expensive piece, my 3 egg hadrosaur nest from China. These are not crazy rare, also not museum quality but it was my first show piece that I bought and have been enjoying it everyday. Owning a piece of history, a nest of a creature that lived millions of years ago still makes me happy when I think about it. The eggshell and color on these is super nice compared to most I see at auctions. Let me know what you all think.
  14. This article popped up on my news feed: https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/23/world/dinosaur-egg-fossils-extinction-scn/index.html The paper is apparently paywalled: https://www.pnas.org/doi/abs/10.1073/pnas.2211234119 It seems sensational to claim that dinosaur diversity was low based on analysis of some eggs in one location. I'd like to read the paper myself if someone has a way to access it. My first reactions: How representative are dinosaur egg fossils of dinosaur diversity? Is there taphonomic bias in this locality, which in this context speaks t

    Crystal eggs in China

  16. I recently bought this fossil.. What to think about my Hyphalosaurus lingyuanensis from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning province, China. Has some restoration including a the right side being secured back on not that it damaged. Hope for some I hope for honest answers and opinions. I can have some bad news if that is the case ;).
  17. Hi every! I got this one from an old Chinese medicine store, the owner said they came from Gansu province, China. After I prepared, it turn to be a mammal vertebrae bone but I don’t know exactly the species or at least the family or order. Could anyone help me to have a look about this one? Thank you guys!

    Guizhou Ediacaran?

    Hello, I see these pieces being sold as apparent precambrian Ediacarans from Guizhou, China. My question is, how does one determine if these are even fossils and biological in origin as opposed to just some random smudge or geological oddity? Is anything known about these sorts of specimens? Thank you.

    Paleoart of Keichousaurus

    I've never seriously done paleoart before. I have been wanting to try my hand at it for years but passed on it for one reason or another. Recently I fell in love with looking at fossils of keichousaurus. I also love lizards. So I decided yesterday to just do it. So here are my results. If I messed up on the anatomy in any way, please don't hesitate to let me know.
  21. Hello, I was wondering if these chinese Keichosaurus looked real? How much reconstruction/restoration if any, and how is their condition? Both slabs are about 9 inches long. First looks ok to me, second's body looks a bit weird. Thank you! 1. 2.
  22. A diner discovered 100 million-year-old dinosaur footprints in a restaurant Erika Ryan and Christopher Intagliata, NPR, July 23, 2022 Yours, Paul H.
  23. As the title says, I have this partial skull being offered to me and was wondering if any or all of it looked faked? Those teeth set off my alarm a bit as they look awfully big for ictitherium, or am I incorrect in that assessment?
  24. What do you guys think? Full size dromaeosaurus from East Asia I think. Seems too good to be sold
