    Humerus or femur seareptile

    Hello everyone. I am sorting out some old finds in this lockdown period. This one was found in the Boulonnais area, North of France. Upper Jurassic, mainly marine sediments. I have always assumed this is a humerus or femur of a sea reptile with missing joints. Plio- or plesiosaurus. There is a big muscle attachment. Can anyone confirm or not? Regards, Niels
  2. Who want to help me ? I would be happy to offer brachiopods from France ,but also various nice Echinoids or carboniferous plants in exchange of new species i still not have .
  3. I made today a new hunt in the Carboniferous of Northern France before the new lockdown . Nice Eusphenopteris Cordaites seeds Neuropteris Calamites stem A nice Pecopteris I Found also a Devonian Rock with a lot of Pelecypods But my target was Carboniferous plants ,a big Lepidodendron Nice Sigillaria NICE EUSPHENOPTERIS

    Steneosaurus revised

    A new fossil crocodylomorph-related paper is now available online: Johnson, M. M., Young, M. T., and Brusatte, S. L. (2020). Emptying the wastebasket: a historical and taxonomic revision of the Jurassic crocodylomorph Steneosaurus. Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society 189 (2): 428–448. https://doi.org/10.1093%2Fzoolinnean%2Fzlaa027 Michela Johnson and colleagues restrict Steneosaurus to the type species S. rostromajor, and make the teleosauroid snout MNHN 8900 the S. rostromajor lectotype (the skull fragment MNHN 8753 was later recognized as belonging to the metrio
  5. L.S., Hope someone here may have seen something similar before. The photographs below (apologies for the poor quality, made with phone) show about 18 mm-long structures, roughly oblong in outline and with a "dent" (in lieu of a better description). Their surface is quite shiny. The specimens come from the Pennsylvanian (probably Westphalian B or C) of Northern France. Anyone an idea what these might be? I have looked in the literature for similar seeds or cone bracts perhaps, but without success. Kind regards, Tim

    Some old finds prepped !

    Hi, After a few month's of being busy with other stuff, this weekend i finally found some time to do some prepping again. Since i now have an abrader i started working on some older finds. Most of these were found in La Verpilliere in France. Hope you like 'm....
  8. Hi everyone, I'm looking for an area close to Strasbourg in the Alsace, not more than about two hours' drive away, that offers both nice forest walks and easily accessible fossiling sites (or palaeontological museum) where a family with young children could go to find some fossils over the Easter holidays. Please feel free to PM me with details. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi everyone, now that it is a prohibitive time for fossil hunting (at least where I am!) I though it was a good opportunity for a little throwback. This summer I travelled to southern France and I had the chance to visit museums, paleontological heritage sites and, of course, collect fossils. Towards the end of August I met with a friend and we headed to an area that was quite popular among professionals and amateur collectors alike, but we didn't know any exact location. We stopped at a place that looked promising and we asked the owner of the land permission to survey and,

    Carboniferous seed

    From my last hunt in the Westphalien of Northern France,the stem seems to grow from the seed(Trigonocarpus)but i think the seed probably fall on a Alethopteris stem,very strange An Idea?
  11. Hello, i have this little piece of fossil (2-3 cm) that i have no idea what it can be. Its from falaises des vaches noires in France which is Cretaceous/Jurassic area. There are mostly marine fossiles here. I was thinking fishbone fragment or plant? If anyone could help me i would really appreciate it.

    2nd mystery

    The 2nd mystery fossil is also from the southern part of France. It's a black fossil, slightly curved with 10 ammonite like "lobes". To me it always looked like a part of a heteromorph ammonite. It measures 4 x 2,5 cm.
  13. I went yesterday on my fav sites to find new good carboniferous fossils,the weather was great and i made few good finds At first ,i find two very nice and not easy to find Trigonocarpus(most of the times ,it's hard to find one!) I found also a nice Sphenopteris plate(nice colors) And a Neuropteris plate A Lonchopteris sample Probably a very unusual Crossotheca crépini zeiller plate But my best find was

    French Spinosaurids?

    I’m wondering what everyone’s thoughts are on Spinosaurids in France? Is it possible that they were present in France? I’ve seen the subject show up a few times here before and was wondering what everyone’s thoughts were. Especially since Camarillasaurus has been confirmed a Spinosaurid, it helps support it as Camarillasaurus is the second species of Spinosaurid from Spain meaning they were clearly prevalent there, but it’s from Northeast Spain, not to far from France.

    Canine Tooth - France

    Hi, I have here a tooth, Neolithic (6,500 - 12,000 years old). It is described as indeterminate canine from Voulgézac, France. It is 4 cm in length. Is there any way to say which species it could be from? Thank you, Bellamy
  18. Hello together, I am tidying up a bit and came across this piece between the flower pots on my windowsill. I can not remember buying it, and I can not remember finding it. As I do not often find vertebrate fossils (as this appears to me to be) I would remember finding it. So maybe it was a bonus add on to something I bought, or my fiancé found it without being impressed much, in which case it would be from the coast of Normandy or Bretagne. Could also have been from a box of Chilean whale vertebrae, I also found a penguin humerus among those. My first guess is some kin
  19. Hi all, Last part of my finds of the year. In autumn, between lockdown 1 & and lockdown 2, we managed another 3 days hunts. First day was spent in our usual trilobites spot, which happened to be on the way to our main destination this time. You have already seen in my first part some of the trilos we did find on that day, which was a rather good one for me. Day two was spent in Nanteuil quarry not far from Niort. the quarry got mostly bajocian and aalenian. the aalenian is on the "ground of the quarry" and was mostly drown at that time of year. So Bajocian

    croc tooth

    Hello, Found this tiny tooth of about 1 x 1 cm in marine Jurassic sediment in the Boulonnais. North of France. Could this be a marine crocodile tooth, such as machimosaurus? Regards, Niels

  23. It has been to long since we posted a fieldtrip, but the curent worldwide situation did hamper our fossil hunts. A few days before Chritmas the situation in France changed and we could again go to the beaches in the North for fossil hunts. The 24th we went to the "Grand Blanc Nez" to prospect the turonian boulders en hopfully score a few big ammonites. This time we were als prepared for big finds: we took a handcart with us, because the previous time we had trouble to bring a couple of ammonites back to the car due to their weight ( 2 km on foot with more than 30 kg of ammonites
  24. Initially, this summer we had planned to spend a week in the eastern part of France, but despite there was no official lockdown at the time and since the area had been badly strike by the pandemy, we decided to postpone that trip. Instead we organised a 4 days trip along the cliffs of Normandy. The first day we aimed to "Cap de La Hève " near Le Havre. The rocks are from the cenomanian We didnt find that much, but all in all we still managed to grab a few nice echinoids and brachiopods. Some samples of the very small Discoides subuculus (1 cm for the biggest) :
  25. Despite the pandemy and various restrictions which occured, it happened we managed to make quite a few trips. i did, in my opinion, numerous good finds, specially in the trilobites department. So this post shows the nicest trilo i found in 2020. We visited 3 different sites with various luck. The first noticable trilo of the year was found a few days only before the first lockdown. It was a very happy split, you can see on the pictures the chisel was very close. So here it is : Ectillaenus giganteus Later, in the e
