    Castle Hayne ID Help

    I am hoping to get help identifying some invertebrates that I found in the Eocene Castle Hayne Limestone. Most are bivalve internal molds. I have seen the first colloquially called a sponge, but I am not sure that identification is correct. The only reference with plates I could find online for the Castle Hayne was Kellum's Professional Paper 143 from 1926, but it is dated and most descriptions only included a genus. If you know of another reference that is better, please let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1 #2 #3

    Blochius longirostris Volta 1796

    Taxonomy according to fossilworks.org. Emended family diagnosis according to Fierstine and Monsch, 2009, p. 129: "Praemaxillaries joined into a pointed rostrum. Shape througout length unknown, but one seemingly round cross-section reported below. Rostrum usually longer than the lower jaw (when rostrum and lower jaws are nearly equal in length, the distal rostrum may not have been preserved). Twenty-four elongate vertebrae without neural spines (except for the last few caudals). Two vertebrae in caudal complex. Height of dorsal fin greater than greatest depth of body. " Emended specie
  6. Hello again to all of you guys , I´m in a huge need oh help to ID some mollusks of south central Chile. Currently these are storaged in the vault of a local university. I know taht the fossils in the images are not in the best conditions, but the outcrop itself sadly has been seriously reworked by a bulldozer machinery (they may be a little bit flattened). At least to a family or genus level ID should be nice considering how they actually are. The beds should be of the Miocene to Pliocene. But also theres a very minor chance of being from the middle to upper Eocene. Th
  7. Well my little Eocene Castle Hayne Formation pit has coughed up another amazing Hexanchus agassizi tooth. That is 3 very nice rooted ones in about 4 months. Here it is. I also found this really nice Macrorhyzodus americana the same day Here is a sampling of other teeth and such from there. These are not from the same day, I have not cleaned the rest of the finds from that day yet.

    Horse Metapodial

    A presumed horse metapodial from the Eocene sediments of the Big Horn Basin (Wyoming). Post some other things from here as well, but was wondering if anyone could narrow down this ID. Thanks!
  9. Dr. Stephen Godfrey, the Curator of Paleontology at the Calvert Marine Museum, has a special interest in bones and coprolites with bite marks. I recently found the below fish coprolite (20 mm length) with bite marks in the Eocene, Nanjemoy Formation of Virginia and donated it to the Calvert Marine Museum. Some bite marks are infilled with Pyrite. It is by far the nicest example of a fish coprolite with bite marks that I’ve seen from the Eocene, Nanjemoy Formation of Virginia (I’ve collected over 50,000 fish coprolites (shark, ray and bony fish) from the Nanjemoy Formation over the last 25
  10. Here are some pics of a tooth I found. I originally thought it might be a eocene sea cow tusk piece. I sent some pics to @Boesse and he believed it to be a ta first premolar of an archeocete whale. So wow! The same day I found the last Hexanchus I also found this fragment of an archeocete tooth. This pit has been amazing!! Also here is a very cool stingray barb. It is the part where it attaches to the body of the ray.
  11. OK folks, from my new found Eocene pit. Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. Some sawfish, Pristis lathami verts and rostral spines. And a possible piece of dorsal spine. Verts, including one huge one measuring in at 1.48 inch or 37.6 MM. more verts and rostral spines; the possible piece of dorsal spine is under the row of 4 verts across the top the longest spine measures in at 3.20 inch or 81.4 mm Seen this guy still in full velvet on my way to the pit one day.
  12. Two limb bone fragments from the Eocene deposits in the Big Horn Basin. Mammalian, but don't know anything more beyond that. Would really appreciate help!

    Interesting Florissant Fossil

    Hello, Another Unidentified Florissant Object, some sort of attachment on a monocot/reed/stick. Maybe the attachment is an insect egg, or a larva, or just a seed of some kind. You can definitely see they are connected. Maybe you guys can help figure this one out, if it's unidentifiable I totally understand. @piranha @Top Trilo @Rockwood @Tetradium @LabRatKing, y'all have helped me in previous topics. Thanks!

  15. I found this a few years ago at isle of sheppy and have had it sitting in a cabinet for a while. I believe it is some kind of ear bone but not 100% would anyone be able to identify it
  16. Hi, I recenty acquired a bulk of shark teeth found on the beaches of Cadzand, The Netherlands. I think there are around 200 - 300 shark, ray and fish teeth in the bag ranging in age from the Eocene up to the Plio/Pleistocene. A large chunk of the teeth are common species like C. hastalis, Brachycarcharias lerichei & Striatolamia macrota teeth. But there are a few I am not sure about and some I don't even a clue about, so I was hoping some people here might help me out confirm my ID. Thank you in advance! All the ray teeth in the bunch
  17. Hi everyone. It has been a while since I have made a post. Between some health issues and all the RAIN we have had here in NC this summer, the trips have been few. Not to mention all of the quarries still being closed due to covid. Recently I was granted permission to search a small, private agricultural limestone marl quarry. It is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. Now before anyone asks, no I will not say where or nor will I be bringing anyone to it. It is very small and my permission is very tentative. I have to get permission each time I go. It is a smorgasbor

    Advice on find

    Hello all, Bit of advice needed related to a find from yesterday Geo location: Beltinge, Herne Bay, UK Site location: loose on foreshore, on matrix Age/formation: Eocene/Paleocene from either Upnor or Thanet formations most likely First thought was turtle shell, but realized at home it was way too thin? Only other ideas were a piece of gastropod shell. Any thoughts welcome.

  20. I found the below partial jaw with two molars several years ago in the Eocene Nanjemoy Formation of Virginia and donated it to the Smithsonian Institution. Dr. Ken Rose studied the jaw and wrote a paper on it which was just published on-line by the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. With Covid it took a bit longer to get the paper on this jaw written and published. Here is the paper citation: Kenneth D. Rose, Jonathan M. G. Perry, Kristen A. Prufrock & Robert E.

    Eocoelopoma fish skull

    From the album: Some of my best Sheppey fossils

    The newest addition to my fish family. This is another beautiful example of the fish Eocoelopoma.
  22. Hey! I recently found these shark teeth fossils in Harleyville, SC. They come from Eocene strata. As best I can tell, I think they are Isurus praecursor and Brachycarcharias, but I’m no expert in identifying Eocene shark teeth...can someone either confirm or correct this? Thanks!!

    Fish scale fossils in flint.

    While flint knapping, I found some fish scales inside the flint. The flint was a nodule inside a miocene conglomerate in northern Israel. The flint is most likely to be Eocene flint that rolled its way from a distance. Specimen A is one centimeter long, B is 5 mm and specimen C is aprox 2 mm. I hope some of you can help me identify the fish species or families. Thank you!

    Harleyville Eocene shark teeth

    Hi, so I recently dug up these shark teeth in Harleyville, South Carolina, and was wondering if anyone could help me ID them? I haven’t found much online in the way of Eocene shark teeth ID info...could they be a mix of Isurus praecursor and C. auriculitis? Also I’m assuming the bone fragment is from an archaeocete whale and the round thing is a musket ball. Thanks!
