    Lake Texoma Find!

    It’s been a while, but now I’ve got something worth posting about that I’d like identified. :) Took a trip to Lake Texoma yesterday and my husband found this. My guess is some kind of bivalve, but I’m hoping that someone here has a little more knowledge.
  2. Adam86cucv

    Acquired a collection

    Yesterday I received a 30 pound box of various shell, marine fossils, and some other miscellaneous fossils and a few extant bits as well. I will post in the ID section some as not everything has a label. It is a large overwhelming amount to sort through so this will be a bit at a time kind of thread. Please let me know if anything of the id tags are using outdated names or incorrect, etc. First an overall picture the seller had of the lot. Some Brachiopods from Wutach Germany What appears to be clam steinkerns

    California fossil shells

    Found these in a dirt heap construction area near Lomita, San Pedro area does anyone know the exact species etc. ? Last photo is a few other finds including the bivalves. Thanks
  4. Hi everyone, this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found a fossil loaded with brachiopods all over it. Here is a photo :
  5. A bivalve fossil I found at Big Brook yesterday. First one like it I've ever seen, so thought it might be something interesting.

    Maybe fossilized clam super hard

    Ive had this what looks to be a fossilized clam in my yard 30+years , my grandfather brought it home one day, he said he found it while they were dredging in some part of Tampa bay, it's really hard my wet saw cut through granite like butter but this not so much, basically I was wondering if anyone knew what it was and if it might have turned into something cool because I want to cut it in half and put of display, I'd appreciate any shared knowledge thanks.

    Fossils or just shell and rock

    Hey everyone, new here, but hoping I’ve come to the right place! My family just got back from tooth hunting on shark tooth island and found these too and wondered how we could confirm what they are and if they’re just ordinary or could be extraordinary!
  8. hi everyone this is matt again take a look at these clams I found in the creek today here is a few photos
  9. So I was caring for my snapping turtle when I found these 4 rocks in his tank. 3 of them are undeniably fossils. I was wondering if anyone knew what type of fossils they are. One looks to be some sort of clam, one looks to be the tail of something, and the other almost looks like a turtle shell. The rock that looks like a turtle shell has a smooth top, what looks like car tracks under it, and a hole in the middle where a turtles head could go. As you can see by the photos, they are very small, and there's likely much more in my turtles tank. There is a 4th rock that I didn't take photos of tha
  10. Not exactly sure whether this is new information, has already been observed, or if this is just me misinterpreting fossils, but I recently noticed that there are two species of the Coon Creek Formation that look very similar. That being Pterotrigonia thoracica and Trigonia eufaulensis. I noticed while observing a gallery made by @Herb that each species looks very similar, and are almost indistinguishable. Upon observing other examples of each species, I came up with this conclusion: P. thoracica typically has 14-15 ribs on its shell, while T. eufualensis has 16-17. Let me know what you all thi

    Unknown Bivalve, Tarrant Co. Cenomanian, Cretaceous Jan, 2023
  12. I’ve decided to post this one separately. Very unusual composition. If you watch the video, you’ll see that light refracts off of tiny crystals in the center of each segment (which I’ve circled in red in another image). It’s hardly noticeable. The specimen is very smooth and rounded. Another member said in a different post of mine that it could possibly be an inoceramid hinge, though my own research resulted in nothing. I can’t find anything online that remotely resembles my specimen (inoceramid or otherwise). I found it at Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. FullSize

    Found in Hidalgo County NM on the surface, thanks for the help.

    Port Huron, Michigan trip

    I drive 8 hours with a friend to a location he remembers from his childhood as yielding a lot. Oh boy it did. 100% worth the drive. Lake Huron, among the agates, pyrite, yooperlite, has some extraordinary Devonian fossils. All fossils were collected from the beach of his family’s property except for the fenestelid bryozoan, which was found at a gas station on the way there. please enjoy this collection of gastropods, petoskey stones, various tabulate corals, crinoids, stromatoporoids, bivalves, Brachiopods, tenteculites, horn corals, an unidentified agatized fossil in jasper matrix

  17. Hey everyone, Today @Bone Daddy and myself did a little invert fossil hunting. Well, I found this Mercenaria Clam and I’ve never seen one like it. There are millions of these things littered around the site, but none have this layered growth at the opening. Can someone tell me if this a mutation or is it common? I’m not really an invert specialist, but something just seems odd about it. All the ones that I’ve collected or even seen have only one layer of growth that connects at the front. This one has so many, and its fairly heavy, probably weighs 10 pounds. Anyone know clams?
  18. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Take a look at these bivalves I found in the creek today. Here is a photo:

    Wood or Clam?

    I lost my kayak anchor and found a rock to use for the rest of the day. When I was loading back up I noticed the markings on it. I thought it was a piece of petrified wood but once I cleaned it up it kind of looks like a clam. Any ideas? This was found in middle Tennessee.
  20. Thanks for any help putting species IDs on these marine fossils from Magoito Beach, Portugal. My best guesses are as follows: 1-12) Oysters, unsure of species 13-20) Clams, original material and steinkerns. 13, 16 and 19 are quite "tall", others rather flat. 21, 22) ?? Possibly a coral? Or crinoid fragments or a trace fossil? 23, 24) smaller oyster pieces 25) a mussel? 26-29) gastropods 30) shark tooth - possibly goblin shark? Sadly fragmented, but has distinctive pair of lobes at the root midline 31) ?? intriguing paddle-shaped structure with a distinctive mid-line

    Need help identifying please

    Another find from yesterday, it also was found in creek in Muskingum County, Ohio.

    Need help identifying this fossil.

    Found in creek in muskingum county, Ohio. There are a few more in this particular rock. So if you see some and can help with identifying please feel free to do so. Thanks.
  23. My wife and I traveled up to western upstate NY this past weekend for Penn Dixie's annual dig with the experts event. This was our first visit to the park and we were happy to finally use up the tickets we had originally purchased for the 2020 dig. The event was sold out both days and the staff seemed happy to be back in normal operations. The weather was perfect, with bright sunny skies and temps in the 50s to 60s day 1 and 60s to low 70s day 2. Lots of folks digging: We didn't find anything crazy good, but didn't get blanked with a mix o
