    From the album: Sketches

    Original from the Early Devonian Emsian deposits at Erfoud, Morocco.
  3. Hello everyone, I recently received a lot of 3 brachiopods from Spain. Here they are with their original labels that they were listed with and that I received them with: The issue is that when I began to do a bit more research on these species, specifically Hexarhytis the paper that comes up shows and describes a completely different brachiopod. Looking up the other Athyrid the results I got were much closer but still not exactly like the brachiopod I have, but since I got more results for this search I could now do a bit of looking into the closely related taxa whic
  4. Roofing slate mining in Bundenbach (Eschenbach-Bocksberg mine) was discontinued in 1999. Taxonomy according to Fossilworks. Diagnosis in Südkamp, 2011: "The large, bowl-shaped cup is composed of three low infrabasals and two uninterrupted circlets of large, five-sided basals and radials. The angustary radial facets are horseshoe-shaped. The basals and radials have a striated surface sculpture (hexagonal concentric lines). The uniserial arms branch isotomously on primibrach three normally and heterotomously higher in the crown. The secundi- and tertibrachs have thorn-shaped pla

    Hollardops mesocristata?

    I just acquired this trilobite over an internet auction house. The seller could give me absolutely no information about it, but I'm pretty sure that this is a Hollardops mesocristata from the late Emsian, Middle Devon. I would just like to ask the experts here on this subject if I am correct in my assumption and if they perhaps might be able to suggest its provenance. It's 6cm. long.
  7. Hi everybody! Today i want to kindly ask you help for the correct ID of this trilobite. My choice is Morocops ovatus but obviously i prefer to listen the ideas of experts (@piranha @Kane @Tidgy's Dad and more). I'm thankful to everyone who want to participate at the topic Here are the info: Origin: Jbel Zguilma (Foum Zguid), near Alnif, Morocco Age: Emsian, Devonian Lenght: 5.5 cm / 2.16 inches The trilobite is not in my hands, the photos are from the seller. Thanks and have a wonderful weekend!
  8. All, I have got a strange looking osteostracan fish from Stjordalen Fm, Spitzbergen. It is Emsian. It is not identified but generally belongs to the elongated type of osteostarcan fish from that locality. As you can see it shows that a part of the exterior headshield layer is missing showing probably a viscelar/internal structures. Maybe it is an effect of predation or just a mechanical damage during formation of the fossil. Nevertheless, it is interesting. Pictures are not of the best quality but some internal structures seem to be visible. It is a strange looking one. Any co

  11. Taxonomy according to Fossilworks.org. Characteristics of the genus according to Südkamp 2017, p. 110: “The cup is cone-shaped. The arms are very long, unbranched and without pinnules. They consist of elongate elements. The anal sac is arm-like. The round stem consists of low elements proximally.” T. elongatus is characterized by arms that can be more than 20 times the height of the cup. Identified by oilshale using Südkamp 2017.
