  1. hello! I went fossil hunting a few hours ago and while doing so I came across a phosphatic nodule that was naturally opened most likely due to freeze thawing Formation: Muncie Creek Shale nevertheless I was wondering if someone could confirm if this is a Campodus sp. tooth as I am assuming it is since it resembles my other Campodus teeth and also wanted to see if anyone can help me remove the the mud from this tooth without damaging the fossil inside by giving advice/Tips I do not have any prep tools Without further delay h

    These teeth are commonly associated with labyrinthodonts, but the base clearly doesn't support that.

    Lee Creek Matrix Under A Microscope

    Hi. For Father's Day my kids got me an electic microscope. I have been picking through Lee Creek matrix that I purchased to get me through quarantine. I am really not familiar with smaller teeth so it would be greatly appreciated if anyone can confirm my ID. Enjoy the pics. For all the Dad's, I hope you had a great Father's day! This tooth is 2-3mm. I thought it was small tooth sand tiger but the root seems rather large. I have been all through Elasmo.com and I cannot find a match. The next 2 teeth cusps and the blade remind me of a mackerel but the root d

    Ramanessin Brook ID

    Hello everybody, does anybody know what these fossils are? Found in ramanessin Brook NJ. I think they are teeth from fish. Possibly some are sawfish? One is a jaw fragment? Thank you to all that can help
  5. I purchase some matrix and it came a little different than I am use to. It was labeld "Gardner Lacality Peace River FL" and came in unprepped. This was an experience trying to break up the matrix. Not knowing exactly what I was doing, I soaked it in warm water and broke it down the best I could into different size matrix. I need something a little stronger for the other half of the clumps to break down. Everything is a unidentifiable and not complete, but I wanted to post pictures because the colors are so amazing to me. Everything is 1-3MM. As I find more items I will add to this p

    Micro Matrix

    I have been spending the past covid months going through Lee Creek matix. I dont know what I would have done without it. I have found hundreds of things and still have a ton to go through. Since I post pictures last I took the advice given and purchased an aultrasonic cleaner. WOW, what a difference it makes. Thanks for the input on that @MarcoSr @Al Dente @ClearLake @CocoAnyway here are 10 unique finds that I need some guidence on. I appreciate any feedback! 1. Is this a fish tooth? To me it looks more reptilian. Dare I say Croc tooth. I know its not but I am still searc

    Fish teeth?

    I always find a lot of these when looking for small shark teeth at Douglas Point, MD. I’m guessing they are fish teeth. If not, might toss them.

    Lee Creek ID help

    Hi. Here are some cool finds from the past week after going through the Lee Creek matrix. I feel pretty confident in most of my IDs. Couple of them I have no idea. Thanks for any feedback! Much appreciated in advance! Enjoy the pictures. 1. I believe this is a catshark tooth - scyliorhinus 2. Tope shark - Galeorhinus 3. I have found a couple of these teeth that are identical to this heart shaped tooth. 4. Hardnose Shark - Carcharhinus macloti 5. I thought this was Dogfish Shark but the more i look a

Unfortunately not in One piece. I was fortunate to find almost all of the pieces, including the tip, but do not know what adhesive to use Never the less I would like to know what species this is from! I have found various prehistoric fish parts from the rock Pile this has come from, Such as teeth from Eugeneodontida and Cartilage. The tip

    Rhaetic fossil

    Collected in 1994 in Cropwell Bishop Nottinghamshire UK, some Rhaetic pyrite layer pieces from a Gypsum mine. Packed full of bivalves, fish teeth and coprolites. Focusing on this particular find, would anyone know what it may be (1st picture) 1mm scale.

  13. Hey Hi Y'all, I have been searching some very fine (nano) matrix from Shark Tooth Hill. The matrix went through the window screen but not the "grease splatter" screen. I have not taken any pictures with My scope yet, but thought I would show a "teaser" to peak some interest... My finds so far. Largest pieces are about 1 millimeter.

    My Aurora Pile

    Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, the VERY generous @AshHendrick gave a portion of his Aurora pile, straight from the mine! I put it around a wood frame in my yard, and have hunted it for hours almost every day. This will be an ongoing thread, I will prob not update every day, but at least weekly. This is the pile. It's bigger than it looks in this pic (about 5.5 x 5.5 feet [a little less than 2 meters i think]) What I do is I sift into the bucket, so I don't go through it twice. I dump it somewhere else. Day 1 Coral Fish vert
  15. I often hear collectors identify a certain type of fish tooth as "either wahoo or barracuda", but I have never seen any photos, articles, books, etc. that show how to tell the difference between the two types of teeth. I know that there are positional variations, but beyond that, are many of the teeth very similar for both species, making them easy to misidentify? Or is there a way to easily distinguish between them? I am referring to specimens collected in the Oligocene beds of S.C. if that helps any. Photos or illustrations would be helpful.

    what is this fossil

    Dear friends, I found this fossil in the desert near my city, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Can you kindly help me to identify it for my collection? It is 14 mm long and 8 mm high. I found many sizes. Thank you, very much.
  17. Does anybody recognize this? I'm guessing a dermal denticle, but the elongated shape is unusual to me. Other microfauna in the matrix includes shark(cladodont) teeth, fish teeth, gastropods, goniatites, crinoid and echinoid plates and spines, ostracods, brachiopods, bryozoan, and conodonts. For scale field of view= ~1cm. Magnification 20X Magnification 40X
  18. Hi all, As we continue to wash, sieve and go through one teaspoon at a time our gravels from the sides of giant ant hill mounds from the Twowells Tongue of the Dakota, we are finding some very exciting microfossils! As you recall, we found ourselves on the top of a large rounded hilltop a few months back with very rare limestone on its cap. Most sediment from this formation is either a yellow sandstone, or shale. The Ants did all the work - They brought up pieces of material from the depths of the usual stuff, mostly small gravel pieces and sand. But mixed in has been a plethor

    FISH PHARYNGEAL TOOTH-PLATES

    From the album: TEETH & JAWS

    Here is a group of fish pharyngeal tooth-plates from a Plio-Pleistocene site in the Santa Fe River. Both freshwater and saltwater fish may have these plates, and both sorts of fossil fish are to be found in the river. More than one species may be represented in this group.

    Nj Cretaceous Teeth

    These were all found in the downstream parts of Big Brook in Monmouth County NJ. I'm quite certain that the one on the left is an Enchodus and am wondering if all three are.
  22. In addition to a growing count of cookiecutter shark teeth (and the usual common variety of tiny shark teeth from my recent batch of cookiecutter shark micro-matrix, I've found a few other potentially noteworthy items that I'll present here for show-and-tell and possibly a bit of help with some of the IDs. First up are a collection of small bits that are either coprolitic or geologic. I've found several of these and so I've saved them while I try to determine if they are indeed trace fossils from the back side of some animal that made a unique contribution to my micro-matrix or, instead, if t
  23. Not to long ago, forum member Caldigger sent me a box of Shark Tooth Hill bonebed material. I finally finished going through it and photographing them today. I only took pictures of the best ones, and I have a lot of other partials. I managed to take these pictures with an extremely simple setup: I cut a hole in the bottom of a clear plastic cup, stuck the bottom of my microscope's lens through it, and voila Feel free to correct me in any wrong identifications. Here are some Squalus to start us off: I think they are S. occidentalis. Here are some basking shark teeth, Cetorhinus: Ca

    Microfossils From Englewood, Florida

    Recently I traded with another forum member, jcbshark. In exchange for my fossils he sent some gravel from his local river. This river is rich in cookie cutter shark teeth, which I am pretty sure are rare in most places. Anyway, I searched the material and found a lot of nice shark and fish teeth, including four complete cookie cutters and two crowns. I also found what looks like a piece of a ray barb. I hope you like these pictures, 'cause I had to take like a million to get these ones. at least you can see these! most of them ended up looking either like tiny smudge on the camera lens, or
