  1. Hi everyone this is Matt again. Today in the creek I found a fossil slab with a lot of different brachiopods fossils in it. Here is a photo:

    Seven stars PA Hamilton group

    Anyone know if this is the head of a trilobite? I know some big ones are found there. Also what is the third pic. Been there many times and never found these two.
  3. Hey all, Apologies for my hand in the photos, they're the only pics of the fossils I will be able to take for a while. Here are two fossils found at the Topanga Formation, or The Ampitheater, a roadside sandstone and siltstone bed in Topanga Canyon, Southern California housing middle Miocene fossils. The clam was my best find, but I'm not sure of its exact categorization. It measures about 4 inches long and 2.5 inches wide and thick. (10.16 cm x 6.35 cm x 6.35 cm) I had some thoughts based on this list that it may be Chionopsis temb

    North Cascades Mollusk ID

    I recently found clam fossils in a river bed in the North Cascades (NW side of Kittitas County) that I'd love to identify. See attached image. Each fossil is approximately 3.5" long and 3" wide.
  7. hi everyone this is matt again today in the creek I found some neat brachiopods and bivalves fossils here are some photos
  8. We finished our trip to California just over a week ago. We stop at Jalama Beach but found no fish. I only found these 2 fossils but do not know what they are.
  9. Hi all! What a great forum!- so many experts!. This is my collection of "clam shells", and on a previous forum I saw discussion on similar shells between Wilkingia and Allorisma. Only took the two views initially to save MB. Thoughts, feedback and ideas as to species and age? All found on one gravel bar hiking KC, though not on the same dates. Thanks! Bone
  10. Hi all, I have fossils from Singapore's Jurong Formation, aged from late Triassic to early Jurassic (235 - 175 mya). Some were found over 10 years ago by a fossil-digger while others were dug up recently by the two of us. Several specimens have been handed over to our local museum. However, no one really knows what family or genus these bivalves belong to. I was hoping you guys could help. Specimen 0A Specimen 0B Specimen 0B alt view Specimen 0B alt view

    after arriving in Utah I was itching to get out and dig. So I found a spot on google and boy did it pay off. I anyone knows what layer it is or what these are please let me know. I can’t do close up of any of the fossils tomorrow if need be.

    My Aurora Pile

    Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, the VERY generous @AshHendrick gave a portion of his Aurora pile, straight from the mine! I put it around a wood frame in my yard, and have hunted it for hours almost every day. This will be an ongoing thread, I will prob not update every day, but at least weekly. This is the pile. It's bigger than it looks in this pic (about 5.5 x 5.5 feet [a little less than 2 meters i think]) What I do is I sift into the bucket, so I don't go through it twice. I dump it somewhere else.

    Gastropods and little clams

    My eyes are crossing trying to ID these snails and such, and I'm getting mixed times so I can't be right on them. Any help would totally rock. 2 pics each of first three, 3 angles of the fourth and fifth (clams): top, bottom, and seam. I think I got all that right! Lol
  14. Years ago I use to hunt what was called the Scotai Bluffs when I live in Northern California, Eureka. I found hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of clams in those days. 99.9% were not very good. The preservation being not so good, but once in a rare while, and knowing where to look, I did find some very nicely preserved clams, but even these 'good' ones were far and few between! These are known as Clinocardium meekianum. This is one of the very best groupings ive ever found. 3 of these stuck onto a rock. Yes, these are polished but I do have one or two of these really nicely preserv

    Help identifying these shells!

    Can anyone identify these shells that I collected from the Glen Rose Limestone near Spring Branch, Texas. The outcrop is around 110 Ma.

    Glen Rose Formation Fossils

    Hello all, I am working on my thesis covering fossils of the lower Glen Rose Formation. Could anyone possibly help me identify these specimens? These are heart urchins which I suspect to be Epiaster whitei... Could these be heteraster instead? They range from 3 to 5 cm in diameter and are mostly crushed or broken...

    North texas lake

    Our trips all start out as a kayak fishing adventure. We usually end up pulling ashore for a little while and exploring. On this trip we found a lot of these fossil clams. Very cool. I dont know much about them just thought i would share.
  18. I had about an hour and a half to go hunt for fossils today. Someone had been asking to go hunting with me and today was the only time I’d be free to go until after New Years. There has been a lot of construction on highway 75 in McKinney, TX and they took a lot of the rock dug up during construction and dumped it in a field by 75 just north of the county courthouse on the east side of 75. I had seen the piles of construction rock several times and wanted to check out what fossils might be in the McKinney underground. I doubted there would be much of interest, because it’s th

  20. Hello esteemed experts, fellow learners and everyone else. I discovered lately, north of limassol, northwest of Amathus ancient city, 15 miles in, a 3miles by 1mile oval-ish rock formation, 300-400 ft tall, nice views villas and many nice fossils. I am gathering as much as possible, before it gets totally built over (sadly at around 60% now) So. I know what some of them are, or I could research, but why take the joy of sharing island fossils and the group learning opportunity go to waste? I have 50 or more fossils, 100eds of fragments, many concretions suspected to contain goodies,

    Deer Heart Clams

    Found these today on two seperate occasions. Both of them were inside of a rock. I wasn't lucky enough to get them out without damage but I certainly tried. The flint that was wrapped around them was almost impossible to fracture. I used a welders chipping hammer. I don't recommend using one for extracting fossils. These were found on the Dry Frio River near Uvalde, Tx. It used to be the cretacious lower gulf so there is a multitude of marine fossils to find.

    Fossil of a clam ON an oyster?

    What would you call this? Does it count as a fossil if it's not in sediment? Saw this on eBay advertised as "One in a Billion Ultra Rare Find: Clam Shell Fossil Imprint on an Oyster Shell"

  24. Reading back through the TFF archives I've learned a bit about Rucks Pit in retrospect. Apparently, this was once a hot place to go fossicking for fossil clams with dogtooth golden calcite but, as I understand it, the original owner had health issues and sold the property. It seems the grandson (Eddie) has resurrected this locality and there now seems to be an address a couple blocks from the former location where there are piles of material that can be searched. I've read that this location is not as productive as it used to be (a common story of many long time sites) and I'm wondering if any
  25. Thanks for clicking this topic, because I really need your help! I have here several clams (14 in total) that I urgently need to get rid off! They're taking up way too much space in my collection... Here is all the info about them: • Mactra plistoneerlandica • Clam • Zandmotor, Netherlands • Pleistocene; 100'000 y All are in good condition. What you have to send back to me? Easy: anything you want (as long as it's still a recognizable fossil). For me, those shells have no value, because I find plenty of them at my usual hunting location,
