    Eocene solitary corals

    Hello guys, As a begginer in the world of fossil hunting, I would appreciate your help with identification of several coral specimens I have found in the eocene era fossil site near the town of Vrgorac, Republic of Croatia. My guess, at least for the first specimen (first 4 photos), is that it represent some kind of Pattalophyllia, whilst for the others I honestly have no idea. Also, the last specimen (last 3 photos), looks like some kind of horn coral, which is weird, considering the fact that they went extinct during Permian and especially because it wa

    Green river formation fish

    Micro Stone City shark teeth

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to id some very small shark teeth for an independent research paper I'm writing and am a little unsure on my ids. I took some photos of some typical specimens and was hoping to get some feedback. The scale bar is mm. I put what I think the species is with each group of photos. Any feedback and tips for differentiating these species would be greatly appreciated.
  4. I am at a loss with this one. Kind of a crimped texture (reminds me of an empenada edge) on the edge. It most reminds me of an ostreid bivalve, but I'm not used to the invertebrate material at this Monmouth County, New Jersey Eocene/Miocene site having this texture. Could be a tooth of some sort, but nothing like I have seen before. Hopefully the photos are good enough to have a few new ideas added to the mix.
  5. I'll be honest, I've put off writing this trip report for far too long. Between work, school and general procrastination I have delayed this post for over 7 months. Perhaps there's a silver lining to me writing this in the middle of winter, it could act as a nice break from the grey & cold conditions many of us are facing this season. Hopefully you all enjoy a dose of warmth from a trip which I enjoyed greatly. Ok ready? Let's go. My morning started around 4:30, ungodly hours for me generally, but I woke up excited for what lay ahead. Less than a half hour later we were on our w
  6. Hi hoping for a bit of help with a couple of shark teeth finds from the Eocene (42mya), Bracklesham group in Whitecliffe Bay on the Isle of Wight. I don't often find shark teeth so not sure about the ID so hope someone on here can help. Walking back to the car I found a vertebra in the sand washed out from the cliff, (cliffs are Bembridge Marls / Solent Group or early Oligocene - about 34mya) my initial thought was turtle but something about the shape is making me think lizard so again would appreciate any help with the ID. (Grid in the photographs is 5mm square). If other views would help pl

    Eocene era stromatolite

    Hi guys. As a begginer in the world of fossil hunting, I would very much apppreciate your opinion about this specimen. It was found in the eocene era site, near the town of Vrgorac, Republic of Croatia and I presume it is some kind of stromatolite. Thank you in advance.

    Eocene era stromatolite 2

    Hello guys. Recently I have posted couple of pictures of possible stromatolites specimen I have found. I visited the same location today and I have found a couple of more specimens which look like some kind of stromatolites. Any help would be appreciated.

    Annilids?

    Hello! Here are several photos of a fossilized colony of some sort of worm, or so it appears to me. Please excuse the remnants of clear nail polish I used years ago to increase contrast before I knew better. I came across this in Santa Paula canyon about 2 miles northwest of highway 150 where it turns west at Thomas Aquinas College, Santa Paula, CA. It had washed down decades ago from probably a Matilija Formation exposure. The matrix grain seems quite fine and the rock is very heavy. Although I've been up and down the creek countless times, I've never seen the source bed. Eocene oysters, clam

    Show us your chimaeroids

    Hi guys, I thought I’d start a thread for what is in my opinion, one of the most under appreciated group of marine vertebrate fossils. Anyway, to provide some info on these ratfish and why I find them so interesting, primarily I am drawn in by their rarity. Unlike sharks, that shed their teeth on a regular basis, these fish have one set for life! Anyway, enough talk, more fossils, I will start with some very uncommon jurassic ones, if anyone has any, please add to the thread
  13. This tooth was collected from one of the Monmouth County, NJ, mixed Miocene/Eocene sites. The curved shape makes me want this to be a Parotodus benedeni, but it could just be a weirdo Odontaspis, Carcharias, or one of the other more common types of sharks. Would love to hear what you all think.
  14. Found this on the surface in a Brazos River feeder creek near Houston. It was not near any known exposure, but the Brazos itself transport marine Eocene and Paleocene from up north. It also erodes out Pleistocene bone pretty often. The bank of this feeder creek was sandy with clay underneath. One end of the cross section appears to show something organic within. When looking in from the empty end, the cavity wall is rough but doesn't look like bone-porous. Lick test of the outer surface is positive, noticeably, which makes me think this is marine. Overall, the segment is 1" i

    Florissant Leaf- Cedrelospermum?

    Hi everyone, I wanted to confirm the identity of one of the leaves I found in Florissant, CO back in 2017. At one point or another I saw the genus Cedrelospermum pop up on here or instagram associated with a leaf which caught my eye in its similarity to my own. I would be interested in seeing your opinions. compared to images I found elsewhere online

    NJ Eocene Spine? Jaw?

    Found this little thing a few years ago in a stream where Eocene Manasquan Formation is exposed (although I can't entirely rule out Kirkwood Fm). The four possibilities that I see are 1) ray tail spine barb, 2) fish fin spine, 3) crab claw pincer, or 4) jaw. This doesn't look like any of the ray barbs or crustacean pincers that I have collected so I am leaning towards 2 or 4. While the color/texture looks similar to the Eocene material from this site, it could be modern. What do y'all think?

    Fossil gastropod ID

    Hi there folks, I would like to get identified this internal model of a gasteropod from the Possagno marl formation, upper Eocene, NE Italy (specimen max dimension is 11 cm). Amaurellina angustata is my best guess but I'm definitely not sure. Thanks for the help, Daniele

    Mioplosus labracoides

    From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Mioplosus labracoides from the Green River Formation. No provenance on location, unfortunately. Inexpensive auction find.

  19. I went out on a fossil hunt last Thursday to one of the streams I like to hunt at. It was only around 28 degrees F when I arrived so I didn't have the highest hopes. I ended up having my best day both quality and quantity wise! I found my first New Jersey hemi as well as my first tiger shark tooth. Also found a really nice sized sand tiger as well as one that would have been a monster if it was whole. Hope you guys enjoy!!

    Another trip in mammal land

  21. Hi everyone, yesterday I recieved a lot of shark teeth, 20 of which came from the Egem Clay, Tielt Formation, Egem, Belgium that date back to the Ypresian, Eocene. The teeth are very small sized so I tried a macro lens to take pictures (I apologize for the not always clear images), and I believe most belong to Physogaleus secundus. But I wanted to share my thoughts on the ID's of the teeth and see what your imput would be as I am not an expect on Eocene shark teeth. Tooth 1: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 2: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 3: P
  22. My youngest son found this many years ago. When he found it, (lifting big slabs of rock) it was very appearent that is was going to fall apart. I picked up my little 2oz bottle of super glue and was going to glue it up so that it had a better chance of making the trip home? Well, that didnt work so good. I put the tip of the bottle, ( I use those little needle tips) where I wanted to put glue. It wasnt comeing out so I squeezed harder. Big mistake! The tip popped off and the glue came out like a river! Frigin glue everywhere!!! Anyways, the kid was snoopin in some boxes and totes
  23. Hi everyone! Today is received a bunch of unidentified fossil shark teeth found in a now closed sand quarry in Lede Sand, Lede Formation, Balegem, Oosterzele, Belgium (Eocene, Lutetian, 44 mya). I was hoping some of you might help me out with confirming the ID's of the teeth. I have some idea's what the ID might be, but I am not entirely sure about most. Tooth 1 & 2: Definiatly Sandtiger teeth with fine stiations on the crown. That makes me believe that these are probably Striatolamia macrota Tooth 3: Same goes for this one, I also be
  24. Hey all! Between an ill-timed conference, election month, the pandemic, online teaching, and a few other issues, I was way too stressed out and busy to be on here regularly since October. Also, in mid November we began digging up a small basilosaurid whale in Harleyville, SC - very likely to be the most completely known specimen of the dwarf basilosaurid Chrysocetus, and perhaps the most important basilosaurid discovery in North America of my lifetime. I did manage to write a blog post about our fieldwork, so as an apology for being AWOL and only getting back to identifying cetacea

    What would you do?

    So I have found a significant "load" of mostly bivalves in a very deep water mudstone. This mudstone is very hard, when it fractures it is a lot like obsidian, extremely sharp and extremely hard. The specimen in this image is 3 x 5mm. The calcium shell has very little identifiable structures, yet the cast part seems "fair" crisp. If the shell was removed perhaps shell parts would be shown in the cast for ID. Would you remove the shell (if so how? acidic acid?). Any ideas on how to soften this mudstone, it is as hard but not as brittle as any shale I have seen. G picks don't see to do anything
