  1. A follow-up/continuation of my previous post, here are some of the fossil invertebrates from the Pleistocene Waimanalo Formation of Oahu, Hawaii, USA. First the echinoids. I haven't speciated these yet
  2. Several months ago I took a summer vacation to road trip through several states while collecting fossils along the way. I’ve finally managed to organize, clean, and photograph my finds and figured I’d share some pictures and info about my trip here. My first stop was Venice, Florida. I started with some sifting at the beach and was able to collect a variety of teeth and other fossils. Here’s a sunset at Venice Beach: And the finds: I had good luck with finding a bunch of nice burr fish mouth plates

    Holden Beach Diversity Of Fossils

    Recently got back from a trip on Holden Beach, and just WOW. Words can't describe the uniqueness of being able to find Mosasaur teeth next to Megalodon teeth. The recent Hurricane brought in many new fossils and I had quite good luck. Here are some photos of the trip, I will post a picture showing all of my best finds shortly, but for now enjoy! First, here are some of the Squalicorax pristodontus teeth I collected. These were relatively common.
  4. So this trip report is a little late in coming, but it's because the week before last was a lot to process! Just saying it was amazing would be an understatement. The Sunday before last I found the Xiphactinus with @Jared C that I've already posted about (and plan to provide an update on as soon as I'm done writing this). On Tuesday I had a job interview at the Waco Mammoth Site, and on Wednesday I got the job! Then I spent the weekend in Glen Rose, joining other volunteers from the Dallas Paleontological Society in helping Glen Kuban clean and map the dinosaur trackways recently uncovered by
  5. With time running out before the start of the school year, I decided to spread my attention across three DFW formations to get a little taste of what each has to offer. Instead of shooting out a handful of smaller topics, I've decided to combine my trips into a single larger post. I wouldn't say any individual find is a jaw-dropper or museum-worthy, but they, all together, give a nice glimpse into what each formation can yield. In order from oldest to youngest: Goodland This adventure took place in Oliver Creek with the Dallas Paleo Society. It's a regular s

    More Paleozoic finds

    The 1st few may be the strangest rocks I have found. Appreciate any input. Thanks! Rock 5Rock 6 & 7: could these be fossilized tree roots?Rock 7 - external surface Rock 7 - close up of internal side (smooth) side Are the following specimens too weather worn to make a general ID? I know they are pebble-ish, but on some, there are potentially ribs (very worn), etc. I’m wondering about echinoids, ostracods, possible small brachiopods. Potential bivalve?

    Catoma Creek finds

    Recently went to Catoma Creek on my way through Montgomery and these are some of the better finds. I was hoping someone could help me out out with IDing everything since I’m not from the region. Let me know if you need more pictures. Thanks!
  8. Finally getting round to identifying some finds from over the years at different sections of Big Brook, NJ. I'm going to try and post them in separate topics. The white sea urchin spine is distinctive, but what are these other things? They have similar dots in lines, but the lines are much more spread apart. See that they have pointed ends and one has a wider end. They are about 2-4mm in diameter. Also, any idea or pointers as to what species the Sea Urchin spine could be? I haven't found an easy identification guide on the web yet.
  9. Our Moroccan trip from 19th-23rd February 2019. Day One; Locality One IFRANE Here we are near Ifrane, a village built by the French in the 1930's in a Swiss chalet style so there are pointy roofs instead of the usual traditional flat roofs of Moroccan buildings. This is wifey and Anouar, a Moroccan tour guide, old friend and one time student of English, his brother, our driver Abdullah, is taking the photo. Anouar paid for the trip, accommodation and food in return for me teaching him a little about the fossils, crystals and minerals that we encountered. The trip w
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  16. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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
