  1. These are so hard find in the Peace River. I've only found one echinoid and small chunks of sand dollars in 20+ years then kabóom 4 echinoids and 2 complete sand dollars. The sand dollar maybe Melitta Carolinas I'm sure I did not spell that correctly. As soon I manufacture some extra time these and more are gong to FLMNH.
  2. I'm really enjoying tinkering with my phone photography skills, and this composure of a February Tetragramma is probably my best image I've made with this technique so far. It still doesn't have the same clarity as a proper camera would show (immediately evident when you zoom in), but I think it still makes a nice first impression.
  3. For whatever reason, I used to completely dismiss the Austin chalk as a formation of any interest. I viewed it almost through the same lens that I view the Edwards formation, as if it was some barren uninteresting hinderance that gets in the way of cooler formations. Accidentally finding a large Parapuzosia ammonite in it once changed that a bit, but for the most part I still ignored it... Turns out I was just looking in the wrong places, and had very little understanding of its members. @LSCHNELLE recently explained a lot of it better to me, and so equipped with new knowledge I de

    Holden beach Echinoids and fish skull cap

    Hi all, does anyone know anything about these echinoids? All are approximately 4-6cm in diameter. They came up with the sediments dredged at Holden beach. My best guess is they’re Eocene Castle Hayne since that formation is out towards the coast and is well known for its echinoids. Also, what’s the best way to clean these guys up? They’re in a lithified sand but with enough force you can sort of break some chunks of it off, so it’s not super resilient like some limestones. edit: I believe they’re Hardouinia spp., that’s what they look like online. Someone said they might be PeeDee,

    Echinoid finds (image)

    I found all 20 of these in about 2 hours at just one spot! Yesterday was my lucky day! I honestly should have thrown quite a few of them back but several of them are real beauties!
  7. During the Christmas holiday we had the opportunity to go on 2 field trips to the north of France. 1st one was just after Christmas when we visited the Turonian part of the cliffs. Here we found a couple of nice ammonites ( Mammites nodosoides and a realy nice Fagesia catinus ) and a big flint echinoid. (with @Natalie81 and @Euhoplites) The second trip was last weekend, but we had no luck with the weather this time and we had heavy rainfall for most of the day. Also lots of competition that day. Not a lot of fossils to be found that day: a small flint echi

    Christmas Gifts

    Here a couple things that I received from my wife- first off, a few beautiful echinoids that were purchased from @Harry Pristis back in September- really love these pieces. A book that I have been wanting for a while. A cool adjustable light that hangs around your neck. It has two different powers and will be great for collecting, taking pictures or Cindy things I drop- lol. And what kid does not want a remote control dinosaur that walks, lights up, roars and even blows out water v

    Rotuloidea/Heliophora

    Hello, I bought these fossils as Rotuloidea fimbriata, from the Pliocene of Morocco; yesterday I saw some photos of Heliophora orbicularis, and now I have doubts about what species they are. Any ideas? 1.- 2.- Thanks!

    North Florida Fun!

    My wife and I returned from a great trip to north Florida about a week and a half ago, but I finally have time to post a trip report now that our Easter visitors (our kids) have left and headed back to their homes. Fair warning, if you are looking for some great tale of finds on the Peace River, this is not the post for you! Probably one of the few posts on the Forum from a trip to Florida that does NOT include the Peace –. This was not solely a fossil trip, but rather a sight-seeing trip with some fossils stops included, I try to include as many stops as possible but it is always a delica
  11. This has been a very busy week for me and my fossil addiction. I was out to the Peace River on Tuesday, attended the Lee County , Florida Fossil Club meeting Thursday, went to the Friday night dinner preceding the FPS meeting and was fortunate to be part of those FPS members who went on a field trip to a Pliocene-Pleistocene Shell Pit in Charlotte County, Florida. I know at least 4 other FPS and TFF members who also participated in this Outstanding Field trip. 1) I have volunteered to write_up this field trip for the next FPS Newsletter. I will do that and when complete, wil
  12. Last sunday October 24th I decided to visit the old Andil clay quarry at Liesberg in Switzerland, just over two hours driving from where I live, to see what fossils I might find there. Now a nature reserve where collecting is tolerated as long as the natural parts are not disturbed, the deposits at this quarry, mined for cement production between 1934 and 1980, date to the Upper Callovian and Lower to Middle Oxfordian (source). It is thus stratigraphically - though not petrologically - comparable to the geology of Vaches Noires in Normandy, with which I'm much more familiar, albeit with the in
  13. I recently took a trip to my hometown, San Antonio, Texas, to visit family whom I hadn't seen since before the pandemic. Ever since I caught the fossil bug last year in Maryland, I've been itching to make it back to Texas to explore. This trip's purpose was to catch up with family, but to do so, naturally, I had to catch them up on my new hobby! Two places were easy to add to my itinerary -- both my Mom and Dad have seasonal creeks in their neighborhoods, which I was able to walk. The creeks in my Mom's neighborhood expose Albian rocks from the Edwards Group.
  14. Hi, I was hoping that someone would be able to tell me if the smaller echinoid is a juvenile Corystus dysasteroides or possibly another species. Both specimens were collected from the Jan Juc marl, late oligocene (Janjukian), Victoria, Australia. Thanks.
  15. Does anyone have Collector's Guide to Texas Cretaceous Echinoids by William Morgan? I'm guessing it is a lot less dated than the old HGMS one and was thinking about picking up a copy so I was curious what those who have read it think of it. I also welcome any other good recommendations for Cretaceous echinoid references. Until my power returns in Louisiana I'm going to be collecting in North Texas and I've already come across some nice (to me) echinoids so I'm in need of reference material.
  16. Summertime is here in Texas and that means if you want to go fossil hunting and not get heatstroke....you better go early in the morning! My Grandmother would say "Spring has sprung, Fall has fell, Summer is here and it's hot as usual". I am fortunate that the Glen Rose Formation is close to where I live, so that is my best hunting in Summer! I hit up four different spots recently (one with the Paleontological Society as our monthly field trip) and found some nice new things and some nice not-new things! A few "new" finds: My Favorite : Associated Starfish Ossicles! It m
  17. It's been quite a while since I found any echinoids that I haven't found before - that's the problem with being a "sophomore" hunter...I've found all the basic stuff (but am always happy to find a better quality one, of course) but finding something that is not in my collection is getting harder and harder! I am going to have to start ranging further afield to find them.....sounds like time for some road trips! So I was quite happy this month when I made a couple of trips to Austin and managed to find TWO new to me echies! Both are a bit water worn, being tumbled in a creek
  18. Although the Peace River stayed diggable through the end of June this year, I made my last trip on the 20th and was looking forward to the clear spring fed waters of the Santa Fe the following week. Heavy rains in North Florida and Georgia spoiled that plan by sending the Santa Fe to flood stage. I hadn't been to the Yankeetown spoil islands in several months and I always enjoy spending a few hours there. I intended to do a quick surface scan for the smaller less common echinoids, but was primarily looking for limestone cobbles that contained the large sand dollar Periarchus floridanus. This l
  19. I am, admittedly, not much of a creek hunter. I prefer a road cut any day to slogging around in knee deep water and mud to find the fossils. But sometimes you gotta get out of your comfort zone! And it was WELL WORTH IT!!! My friend was kind enough to share one of his local spots - we've had some good rains in Texas recently and he thought it might be producing some more heteromorph ammonites. He has collected some amazing big and well preserved Mariellas there and I have been DYING to find a good one. All that I have found in my local creeks have been so water worn as to be practically unrec
  20. Went back to my little gold mine today and was again amazed by the variety of things found. Previously I thought I was in Eagle Ford, but it is in Woodbine, with ravine that cuts down to Grayson as was explained to me in first post from this local. Everything was dried out except bottom of ravine, from the looks of things I think a natural spring is involved. So found some more Mariella ammonites, one with part of a scallop maybe?, and a Hemiaster, another Texigryphaea with some shell, I believe a little bacculite, an Echnodus tooth?, unknown clams, a Trigonia, and crawling on hands and knees

  22. Texas has had SO MUCH RAIN in the last month! Mushrooms are growing where there are normally NOT mushrooms growing- but that means it has been a bonanza for fossil hunting, needless to say! If you don't mind the mud..... We have had some epic storms, too. 2+ inch hail, crazy lightning, a few tornado scares and amazing clouds. Hail from my house...my poor car. (That's a quarter for scale - 25mm) But EVERYTHING is green and the wildflowers are gorgeous this year! Havn't found anything NEW, but did a couple of nicer examples, which a
  23. I've driven by this field for years with a big ravine in the distance and decided to check it out since it wasn't fenced or posted and glad I did. The ravine was a good 30-40 yards long, probably 10ft+ at deep end and around 5ft wide, as I got closer the dirt changed to grey clay mud with little vegetation, the surface was sandy and rocky. First thing I saw was the large Echinoid, then peices of what I thought were ammonites until I found a more intact one, then I thought Turritella but didn't quite fit. Had a heck of a time trying to ID them and finally ran across Turrilites, I think that's w
  24. Texas Springtime is my favorite - we haven't had much rain, but the weather is....typical Texas. 60 one day and 90 the next. But I find my tolerance for random temperatures is way better when I am out fossil hunting! So here are some finds from recent excursions. Plus a few shots along the way..... Some local Longhorns. As I head out of my neighborhood, these critters are sometimes out enjoying the Texas sunshine The fossiling started with a nice trip out with Erich Rose to a Glen Rose spot - first thing I spot is something i've never found in our Central Texas f
  25. Today I stopped at home to grab something for work and I found a box waiting for me. It was a box that contained the winnings of the recent auction that John @Sacha put up to benefit the forum. I absolutely love everything that was included in this package. John has gotten me into a love of echinoids and Florida coral. I even have gone through my collection of Fossils and picked out all of the other echinoids that I have acquired over the years, and now I’m going to place them all into one area. The fossils that I received from John will always remain in my collection, and I was
