  1. Hello dear fellow forum members, I just acquired this nice specimen of a carpoid, sold as Dendrocystites barrandei from the Czech republic which I have no reason to doubt. My first carpoid, yay! Fascinating group. I wonder about the starfish-like impression to the right of the carpoid though, is that an early "classic" echinoderm? Best regards, J
  2. Lagynocystis pyramidalis was first described and figured by Barrande 1887 under the name Anomalocystites pyramidalis. Taxonomy from Parsley, 2000. Lagynocystis pyramidalis (Barrande) from the marine Lower Ordovician of Bohemia, has features which suggest that it is ancestral, or nearly so, to living cephalochordates such as amphioxus (Branchiostoma). Diagnosis from Parsley 2000, p. 258: "Ankyroid with asymmetrical theca. M‘l—M'5 well developed: MI—M3 shortened and reduced in size: M4 and M5 absent; large CS plate. M‘5 protuberant, hollow.

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.
  4. Originally the fish was described by Agassiz in 1833 under the name Palaeoniscus vratislaviensis. Taxonomy from Štamberg 2021. Diagnosis of Paramblypterus vratislaviensis from Štamberg 2021, p. 77:”. Small fish usually ranging from 100 to 120 mm, exceptionally to 150 mm. The frontal is 3.5 times longer than wide and 2.5 times longer than the length of the parietal. The anterior margin of the frontal is concave medially, interfrontal suture only slightly undulated and without folds, the sculpture on the frontal consists of ridges parallel with the posterior margin of the bone.

The systematic position of the family Ellipsocephalidae remains a subject of discussion.

  6. Does anyone know what amphibian this is? I acquired it as a Letoverpeton moravicum from the Bacov Formation of Moravia, Czech Republic As I understand, Letoverpeton was synonymized with Discosauricus. However, this doesn't look like the typical Discosauricus to me. I am not familiar with amphibians from the Czech Republic, so I would appreciate any help in identifying them, thank you

  9. Hello, someone I know is going to Prague soon. He asked me if I knew any spots in/near Prague for hunting for fossils. I didn't know any, and a quick internet search didn't give me any more information. I was wondering if any of the people on here know what it means Thanks in advance!

    Fossil wood and crinoid?

    Hi guys! Yesterday I visited Koneprusy (Devon) in the Czech Republic and found some fossils. It was first time finding fossils But I´m not sure about these two.. I think the first one is crinoid (photo #1). Second one looks like a fossil wood (photos #2-4) to me, but I´ve never found one so it might be just some kind of mineral. I don´t know. Thanks for your help P.S.: Ruller is in centimeters.

    Acantholomina minuta Silurian Trilobite SITE LOCATION: Kopaninské formation, Kosov near Beroun, Czech Republic TIME PERIOD: Silurian (about 420 million years) Data: Odontopleurida is an order of very spinose trilobites closely related to the trilobites of the order Lichida. Some experts group the Odontopleurid families, Odontopleuridae and Damesellidae, within Lichida. Odontopleurids tend to have convex, bar-shaped cephalons, and lobed, knob-shaped glabella that extend to, or almost to the anterior margin. Many, if not almost all odontopleurids have long spines that are derived
