  1. Phyllocarid Collection

    My phyllocarid collection to date. Includes Echinocaris sp. and Rhinocaris sp.
  2. Fossilized or no?

    I know that the first crab claw shown is fossilized the center has become stone and the edges where it was broken grey and black, but the second set of pictures I will post is of a claw that leaves me not so sure! It is hard as rock no doubt but the center is hollow and the edges more white which leads me to doubt. Opinions are welcome!
  3. What is this fossil?

    My son found this unique fossil in our creek bed. Anyone know what this is? Thanks for your help!
  4. Hello everyone, I'm from Belgium and currently tasked with securing a secondary fossil collection owned by the grandfather of my husband. We are emptying an attic, and securing quite a number of fossils. Many of them already have an ID, some of them however lack one. Apologies in advance for the poor quality of pictures, there is little to no light/electricity inside the rooms we need to vacate, so picture quality will be appalling at first. I am aiming for a basic ID here, if possible I might be able to provide more detailed pictures once the fossils have been properly packed and moved. #1 : Could this be a dinosaur egg? #2: vertebrae of different sizes + plate of petrified wood in the background. Looking for possible ID on these vertebrae. #3: Petrified wood, which type? #4 : Small crustacean? #5: Fossilized shell from morocco? #6: Partial fossilized jaw? #7: Belemnoidea, the two in the front? (they seem to be very large).

  6. Crustacean pincer

    I'm pretty dang sure this is a crustacean pincer. I'm wondering if I can get any other information about it. Also whether or not it is a rare find. I've hunted fossils in Austin since I was a kid but mostly just picking up the many many oysters, brachiopods, etc that are a dime a dozen around here, with the occasional "big find" (sea urchin, etc). I've never seen anything like this, but a little research at least shows that are known to occur. I found this in NW Austin, specifically in Great Hills park on the edge of a stream bed. The area is limestone. I'm finally getting around to actually learning the names of fossils/rocks/ets that I've seen my whole life. So I *think* this is Glen Rose limestone, but don't hold me to it! The limestone there is marly (new word for me!) and very clayey.

  12. Crustacean? Fossil from Somerset, UK

    My wife found this yesterday in the Marlstone of the Beacon Limestone formation in Somerset, UK. I think it must be a piece of crustacean (I believe an extremely rare, and perhaps even unheard of find in these beds). Can anyone please verify or disprove my tentative ID?
  13. On occasion, a paleo-pen pal emails me a few images of unusual material (I would consider most of what's sent "unusual," anyhow) he's pulled out of various places. Latest example is in the photograph, below. It's a slab of shale from a lower Ordovician section of the Palmetto Formation, Nevada, that contains carapaces (original phosphatic shell substance preserved intact, by the way) of the curious, extinct, bi-valved phyllocarid crustacean called Caryocaris. The critter seems restricted worldwide to strata of early to mid Ordovician geologic age (a handful of examples assigned to the Silurian are apparently problematic)--sometimes occurring in "graptolitic shale facies." I'd never even heard of these things until I received this image. Had to do some research, indeed. Not something most folks see everyday, I'm thinking.
  14. Crab pincer

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A crab pincer found on the Zandmotor (Cancer pagurus).
  15. Yearly trip to Troyes - 2016

    Hello all, As each year i made my trip to Troyes and her albian layers in Champagne. On the first day, we decided to head to a first exposure on the bank o the lake. We didnt find much : a few small ammonites, gastropods, bivalves and corals ..... also a few crab fragments, but definitly not much to brag about.... Most of the spot was covered by a layer of dead waterweed, hiding everything. After a quick meal we decided to head to spot 2, another spot by the lake. At second spot, it was even worst : the whole exposure was buried under dry weed. Since there was not much reason to keep on we decided to call it for the day ....with a very very poor loot. On second day i headed alone to our third spot, harder to reach. After a quite long walk in the mud, i reached the exposure. That one was totally free from weed. The spot was very rich. 90 % of the stuff i collected were crustacean parts. Actually the only intersting stuff... but very interesting As a teaser, here come a group view of a part of the etyus martini carapaces i found. The most abundant crustacean of the day. Stopping it for today, to be followed a trip in the numerous species of crustaceans i was able to find.... See you soon
