    Acquired a collection

    Yesterday I received a 30 pound box of various shell, marine fossils, and some other miscellaneous fossils and a few extant bits as well. I will post in the ID section some as not everything has a label. It is a large overwhelming amount to sort through so this will be a bit at a time kind of thread. Please let me know if anything of the id tags are using outdated names or incorrect, etc. First an overall picture the seller had of the lot. Some Brachiopods from Wutach Germany What appears to be clam steinkerns

    Second trip, help IDing please

    Had time after a good rain for round two in my green belt. Since I have a better idea of what to look for I definitely found more. some I know, and some I don’t. I am happy to take close ups or videos if you want/need a closer look. Also, wanted to mention I am waiting on a copy of “A Field Guide to Fossils of Texas” by: C. Finley. thank for your time

    Help IDing several fossils

    Good day- my first time out fossil hunting I went behind my house in a green belt. New construction and rain uncovered a bunch of stuff in the creek bed. It’s hard to believe I found these right in my own back yard honestly. Some of it I can ID some of it I can’t tell what it is or if it is a fossil. Any help and info would be great appreciated! Thank you in advance also, I’m not extremely tech savvy, so I thank you for your patients as I navigate this site

    Yankeetown Echnoid Hunt

    Last week I had the opportunity to be in Florida so I made my way out to the Withlacoochee bay trail for a little while to look for some loose echnoids. I didn't get any pictures of the finds in situ... poor planning on my part. Here is everything after I got home. They still need to be cleaned up. I believe I saw people soaked them in vinegar and gently use a toothbrush to get the sand and miscellaneous debris off? I also found the tiny 'clam' shell amongst the loose limestone chunks where where I found the echnoids, not su
  5. So once again the question of what species are valid and which are not has come up. In particular I am trying to sort out the species Tetragramma taffi versus T. malbosii. William Morgan in his book on Cretaceous Echinoids of Texas (2016) suggests that T. taffi are just mature T. malbosii. Those of us who have found large T. taffis will see a big difference (or is it just that they are in deed "big"?). T. malbosii is well known in Europe and I have seen many postings of them that look just like what we find here in Texas. But I have yet to see an obvious T. "taffi" from anywhere

    Echinothuria (?*) mccallae Thompson

    From the album: Texas Echinoids, ERose

    These plates show up in the echinoid marker bed of Unit 2, Lower Member, Glen Rose Formation, Trinity Group (Albian) of Comal County, Texas. They were brought to my attention by JohnJ of the FF and I sent images to Andrew Smith at the BNHM. Smith confirmed/identified them as being in the FAMILY Echinothuriidae. Subsequently Bill Thompson named them Echinothuria mcallae after Linda McCall who had placed specimens in the Non-vertebrate Lab Collection at the University of Texas. Note: there are no known associations of these plates that come anywhere close to a complete specimen. I consider Tho

  9. From the album: Double Duty

    Here is a microscopic view of the possible feeding trace. This to a YouTube video shows how the mouth parts of a modern urchin move while they eat. Age: Jurassic - Kimmeridgian Formation: Solnhofen Limestone (Plattenkalk) Location: Eichstätt, Bavaria, Germany

  10. From the album: Double Duty

    Although this isn't really a fossil within a fossil, it is a trace fossil next to another trace fossil. In the circled area just above a rather substantial pile of coprolite, is what is thought to be a feeding trace left by a sea urchin. Long, stringy coprolites such as those show are classified Lumbricaria intestinum, which comes from the Latin word lumbricus, meaning "earthworm." They are thought to have originated from cephalopods including squid, ammonites, and cuddlefish. The modern octopus produces similar fecal extrusions. Age: Jurassic - Kimmeridgian Formation: Solnhofen Limestone

    Echnoid, found in western palm beach county
  12. Went out hunting with my wife today. Found what I believe this is fossilized / crystallized echnoid.. Perhaps another one next to in the matrix. Comparing to my wife's Meloechinus I noticed some similarities. See second image that follows. Top View Side View - Seems like a side view of an Meloechinus? Anyone have any opinions.
