  4. The temps are hovering just above 0°C. right now and there were snow showers predicted yesterday. Nevertheles, my wife noticed that I was beginning to show symptoms of cabin fever, so she just mentioned casually that I could take off if I felt like it. So I did. The Wutach is no place to hang out if snow is on the way, so I thought I'd take a chance with the Danube Valley again. There was a bit of snow in between, but just light sleet showers which were really no bother and none of it stayed on the ground, so digging was no problem. I didn't fancy the idea of bailing out the hole in the divisu

    ø 18cm. divisum zone Early Kimmeridgian Lacunosamergel Formation Lochen Subformation Sponge facies Found in the Upper Danube Valley With epizoan tube worms, sponges and a small attached ammonite.
  11. Maybe some of you remember way back a few years ago when I started reporting on my adventures in the ditch at the side of the road in the Upper Danube Valley. At that time I was excavating the Kimmeridgian divisum zone, but after a couple of years the digs got so close to the cliffs that it was time to leave it in peace. Since then I've been digging in the hypselocylum zone, which is deeper and far enough away from the cliff to be completely safe to work. There is however still one safe spot in the divisum zone that I keep walking past and thinking that I should have a go at it someday, but it

  13. I visited the Kimmeridgian ditch again this week and just finished prepping the finds. I didn't do too badly this time, I'd say. Parataxioceras sp. & Ataxioceras hypselocylum on matrix. 16x12cm. Involuticeras involuta with a Pseudolimea sp. bivalve ø7cm. Laevaptychus obliquus with a small Glochiceras sp., an even smaller and pyritized Aspidoceras sp. and a sponge. 7x7cm. Two more Laevaptychus obliquus, parts of the jaw from Aspidoceras ammonites. Both are 5cm. long. Taramelliceras compsum. ø7cm.
  14. It's become a regular habit for me to visit the site in the Kimmeridgian in the ditch at the side of the road at least once a month. For one thing, it's less than an hour's drive away and it's also relatively easy to work for an old codger like myself. No forging through the woods, clambering uphill and breaking hard rock. All I have to do is get out of the car and mosey a couple of hundred yards down the road and into the ditch. The marley limestone is easy to take apart, and as long as the hypselocylum zone is giving up its offerings, I'll be happy to keep on visiting it regularly. You just

    Late Jurassic finds

    I spent another day at the Kimmeridgian site in the Upper Danube Valley near Beuron the other day. I had taken my camera along in order to take some shots, but I ended up making so many good finds that I forgot to get it out. Sorry bout that. One great thing about this location is that the finds are easy and quick to prep, so at least I can show you some of the finds. Aspidoceras sp. Ataxioceras (Parataxioceras) lothari Ataxioceras (Parataxioceras) planulatum Taramelliceras (Metahaploceras) nodosiusculum and Glochiceras sp
  16. I hadn't gotten out to look for fossils for a couple of weeks due to commission work and other things, so I was beginning to itch so much that I spent the day yesterday digging away in my favorite ditch in the Upper Danube Valley where I've been working at prying up bits of the Kimmeridgian hypselocylum zone. It was a nice sunny day and relatively warm for the middle of winter, so it was quite an enjoyable experience, although my old bones were starting to ache a bit at the end of the day. Here are the things I've sorted out for the collection. Streblites tenuilobatus. 7.5cm.
  17. Monday was the last time that I did a split shift before I'm headed off to full retirement at the end of the year, so as usual, I took advantage of the hours in between and headed off to the Kimmeridgian site in the ditch in the upper Danube Valley. Found a few nice things again this time. Well, winter is closing in, so I probably won't be back there again until the springtime now, but it won't be going away, since I seem to be the only collector that's interested in it. Lots of sponge amongst those ammos this time.

    Biking for Fossils

    Over the years I've posted quite a few reports on my finds from the ditch in the Kimmeridgian in the upper Danube valley. Although it's over 40 miles away, I decided it was time to take a tour down there on my (battery powered) bike. It was a great trip, although I'm of course pretty tuckered out today. The site, or at least the exposures I was working, is pretty well cleaned out by now, but there is still a chance of finding another exposure in the next lower zone by moving on down the ditch and picking away. I have found a bit on the odd visit over the last year or so, but not all that much,

    Liostrea roemeri (Quenstedt 1843)

    Branching sponge

    I took a short trip to the ditch in the Kimmeridgian the other day between shifts and spent a couple of hours digging away, this time to practically no avail. On the way up the ditch back to the car, however, I noticed something which had slipped down from above recently. A good portion of the branching sponge, Cylindrophyma milleporata. It's now residing on the floor in my display room.
  22. From the album: Sponges

    17x16x13cm. Branching sponge. From the Kimmeridgian in the upper Danube valley.
  23. The snow had melted back enough in the lowlands that I could venture out to the Danube Valley yesterday in order to try my luck again in the infamous ditch at the side of the road. There was an awful lot of slipped-down overburden to clear out of the way and it also took a while chipping away at the exposure, so my battery was on the wane before I finally found a little pocket with a few retrievable fossils just before darkness set in. Most of what I found wandered into the trade or sell box, but this one here is reserved for my collection. Discosphinctoides sp. 10cm.

    Back in the ditch

    In contrast to the present below freezing temps in my homeland, things over here in southern Germany are comparatively balmy at the moment. At least it's well above freezing, there's no more snow below 3000 feet and it only rains sometimes. So I took another trip out to my favorite ditch in the Danube Valley and did a bit of digging to see if I could uncover some more of the not-so-easy-to-reach early Kimmeridgian hypselocelum zone at the site. After an hour or so of scratching away at the overburden, I managed to expose some of it and came away with a few finds. The finds are not quite as spe
