  1. Ancient southern China fish may have evolved prior to the 'Age of Fish.'

  2. I know, there are fakes everywhere and only a fool would take a chance on a keichousaurus auction. Well, I'm the fool that just did just that very thing. I didn't think I'd win with a $70 bid, but low and behold I am the proud new owner of an as yet to be inspected fossil keich. I thought I'd post it here and see what you all thought of it. When it comes in I will give it the acetone test, the microscope test, the hot pin test and the black light test and will post my impressions If it. To be honest though, it looks decent enough that it could be a good buy and would make a nice shelf neighbour to my Hyphalosaurus... but only if it's real Here's the auction photos...

  7. My grandfather was a medical doctor and a well known entomologist. He was specialized on geometrid moths and described several hundred new species. He even has his own short Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Bastelberger . But I don't know the first thing about insects. That's a bit embarrassing - if he knew that, he would turn over in his grave. So I could need a helping hand. I got several insects from the Middle to Late Jurassic of Daohugou / Inner Mongolia, but I have no clue what they are. Any help to nail down the order or family is greatly appreciated! Thanks Thomas Insect 1: 3cm Insect 2: 2cm

  10. Authors of a recent paper published in Nature--over at Meiofaunal deuterostomes from the basal Cambrian of Shaanxi (China) by Jian Han, Simon Conway Morris, Qiang Ou, Degan Shu, and Hai Huang --describe the earliest, most primitive deuterostomes, which include of course such major groups as vertebrates, echinoderms, and hemichordates (acorn worms and graptolites). They're from China. They're some 540 million years old, earliest Cambrian in geologic age. They had a mouth, but probably no actual anus. The newly discovered creatures have been named Saccorhytus coronarius gen. et sp. nov., from the Early Cambrian Kuanchuanpu Formation, South China. The authors draw a couple of fascinating conclusions (among others): "In Saccorhytus, however, diffusion across the body surface would have met any respiratory needs, suggesting that a transformation to specifically pharyngeal gills was linked to an increase in body size. If Saccorhytus lacked an anus, body openings may have originated to dispose of waste material."
  11. I am interested in this turtle. According to the seller, it is from the Cretaceous of Liaoning, China. What do you think - is it real?
  12. There is a followup article about the Smuggled Ichthyosaurs.

  14. I keep seeing this 'thing' pop up on my online searches, and I tried to ignore it, but... I can't. It's from an auction website, where it has been bid up to around $300. Obviously this would convince most experts, so I thought I should post it so that people could familiarise themselves with the tell-tale signs that it is, in fact, a very clever forgery; primarily, that it looks like it's been designed by a five year old who doesn't understand what skeletons are. The seller informs us that this specimen 'was found in the Liaoning Province, China'. Presumably in a skip (or 'dumpster' if you're American). Enjoy.
  15. Dinosaur egg fossil ID

    Hi I have a fossil dinosaur egg which was found in China. I have no idea of its species. I was thinking maybe a bird like dinosaur or small raptor. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm new to fossil collecting and I have always been wanting a dinosaur egg. I payed quite a bit for this and is genuine. The person I bought it off has had it in his collection for years and said it was part of a clutch found in China. When it was found they weren't sure on the species of dinosaur it was from. Thank you!
  16. Fish ID: "Yangaiïchthys"???

    Hello everyone! I got this pretty cool fish for X-Mas, and even though it looks great displayed on my shelf, it does confuse me a lot. The second picture shows the info given by the seller. I bought it in a small shop in Veere, Zeeland (NL), and the Rhynchodercetis from my avatar comes from this shop too. The info is in Dutch, and it translates to: Fossil fish: Yangaiïchthys River: the Yangay, China Eocene: +/- 50 mya Now the confusing part is, the name Yangaiïchthys doesn't give any results in the images. That's when I started to stress a bit, because it is a Chinese fossil and those are often fakes (just like Moroccan ones such as my mosasaur jaw). The seller tells me it's most probably real, but surely retouched a bit. So did the Chinese make up a new species, and give it to the jolly old man holding that puny shop in Veere? Anyways I would like your thoughts on it: what species it is, is it fake, etc... Best regards, Max
