  1. A new paper by Chase Brownstein published today describes two new taxa from the Merchantville Formation of Delaware and New Jersey. A new tyrannosauroid of which metatarsal material was previously described here: https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.4123 this time a new recovered vert was collected from the same locality likely belonging to the same individual. This thorough analysis of metatarsalian material has given the prescedent to return the tyrannosaur family known as Dryptosauridae which includes Dryptosaurus aquilunguis and the Merchantville taxon. Also described is a new H

    Phymosoma sp from the C and D Canal in Delaware. Late Cretaceous
  6. Hello, I will be visiting Delaware next week and was looking for fossil sites to visit. I have already decided to visit Reedy Point on the C & D canal, but when visiting the Delaware Geological Survey's webpage about fossil sites I found mention of the state sand and gravel pit, which the webpage claims has plant impressions from the Pleistocene and can be found just south of Middletown on route 896. I tried looking online for information about this site and was only able to find this map with the site marked as number 4, but it does not give an exact location. Furthermore, the description

    Pearl Oyster with Bud

    This is a very rare find at this site. Although two members of the genus have been reported along the C and D Canal, this is the only one I've found at Reedy Point in 17 years of collecting there! PLEASE NOTE: It is possible that this was carried there during frequent human activity - perhaps in a tire tread from a vehicle that came from another site along the canal. This specimen has a 4mm pearl bud near the hinge on the interior side of the valve. Because there are more than one species of Pteria at the canal and this shell is heavily worn, I am refrainin

    Criss cross lined fossil?

    Found this on the beach in Lewes, DE. It's 3cm long, 0.5cm thick and 2cm at the wider end. The lines are raised. Curious if it is some sort of plant fossil. Thanks for any help in identifying!

    Radius lined fossil?

    My son found this on the beach in Lewes, Delaware. It is a little over 1.5 cm long and 1 cm both wide and deep. Maybe it's a cool rock but it sort of seems shell like on the side. Appreciate any help!

    Batoid Vertebrae

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Vertebrae from either a stingray or skate. Found in close proximity to each other at a site where such things are rare, so probably from the same animal. L:arger one is about 3cm wide. Found at Reedy Point, C and D Canal, Delaware. Maastrichtian.

    Fused Oysters

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Two Exogyra cancellata shells from the Cretaceous spoils of Reedy Point, Delaware. Although Exogyras typically detached themselves from their anchorage while still very small - about 2-3 cm - these two animals continued to live and grow together. The lower valve is about 10 cm on the long axis.

    belemnite patho

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Belemnitella americana from the Maastrtichian of Delaware. This one is strangely rounded and scarred. Looks like something bit it and it lived long enough to heal over.

    Cretaceous Micro Brachiopod

    This one is bugging me!!!! I know this is a brachiopod. I found it at the Reedy Point spoils along the C and D Canal in Delaware. It is 1cm in diameter. I have found two of them in the sand but none of them in the books. I have looked in Weller 1907, Wade 1926, Stephenson 1923, Richards 1958 and 64, and Lauginger 1988. I asked the folks at the repository for the Monmouth Amateur Paleontological Society. No dice. Look familiar to anyone?

    Boletechinus Sea Urchin

    This specimen comes from the 1980 dredge spoils of the C and D Canal. The type specimen for this species comes from the Navesink Formation exposure of the same canal, not far away. Known by locals, it was not actually described until 1986. Although not the most common of species at this locality, and almost unknown outside of Delaware, these miniscule urchins were nonetheless plentiful at the Reedy Point spoils. Recent excavation for barrow removed most of the sand where my specimen was found.

    Sabre-Toothed Herring Tooth

    Vertebrate material of any kind is extremely rare at this locality. However, this is the most common vertebrate represented at Reedy Point. Found while sifting through micro matrix collected from an especially prolific, recently exposed spot that will soon be removed by bulldozers.

    Glycymeris Clam Internal Mold

    Glycymeris clams have ridges along the inside edge of the valves that extend past the cardinal area. Internal molds tend to include these teeth, making them very distinctive. As of the time this was posted, this was the only member of the genus listed in the Paleobio Database for the Cretaceous period and it is only listed as being found in NJ. However, Stuart Weller (1907) and Horace G Richards (1958) not only include them in the C and D Canal zone, but identify three different species for the region. This one is the most common and the only one THEY found outside of NJ.

    Gasatropod

    As battered as this is, it is an unusually well-preserved specimen for this locality. Although there are brachiopods and bivalves that preserved as calcium carbonate at this locatlity, most gastropods in the Cretaceous of Delaware are either steinkerns or are preserved as battered phosphate with phosphate in-fill. Gouging appears to have occurred after fossilization since the matrix does not completely fill the gouges. Most shell predation at Reedy Point came from clionia sponges and boring clams. This resembles neither. This was found in loose sand from dredge spoils.

    Micro Scallop

    The treasure of the Reedy Point Spoils is in the micros! This is one of over 100 micros I collected in one day just surface collecting after the spoils area was freshly cleared of vegetation -- and freshly cleared of much of the remaining matrix. Of all of those micro fossils, this is the only one of this species and very possibly the only one I have found in 16 years of collecting at that site. The Reedy Point Spoils is a 220+ acre dredge deposit from the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. The matrix is a combination of material from the Mt Laurel and Navesink Formations, which are no

    Iron Hill Museum Fossils

    I recently took a trip to the Iron Hill Museum in Newark, Delaware. (Which has amazing displays by the way. Its small, but fascinating.) There, I bought a small bag of about 10 fossils. I knew what most of them were, but there are a few I am unsure of what they actually are. I was wondering if anyone on the Forum could help me. All I know is that all of the Fossils were found in either Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. 1. This one I was told that this is some kind of bone fragment. 2. This is also another bone fragment. 3. I think this is a bone fragment.
  25. I took advantage of the day off yesterday for Veterans Day to attempt to beat the rain with a quick stop at the Reedy Point spoils piles (Late Cretaceous; Mt. Laurel Formation) from the C&D Canal in Delaware. Unfortunately neither of those things came true - it began to rain about halfway through my visit and I collected there much longer than I expected. This was my first ever visit to the spoils piles since I have found very similar fossils before in Big Brook, which is a much closer drive for me. I didn't quite know what to expect when I arrived. What I thought were going to be large pi
