    I can’t identify exactly what these are? Found them in Barton Creek near Austin. They look like a gastropod but haven’t seen any with the rears this out to the edge. Also the other pointy ones are even about the center while this one is near the back end.

    Ammonite or Gastropod ?

    Hi friends, I went to Aruma formation area (Campanian-Maastrichrtian) to the North of Riyadh city and found this small fossil , 26mm long by22mm What could it be?
  3. Here in Norway is snowing now, so it is not the best time for fossilhunting. But there is another hunting we can do: to look for small things in rocks already found. This is much easier if you take photos of the rocks and then scann them for the details. That is what I did today and I found several things, among them a small orthocone nautiloid. What I wish to show, however, is some unknown animals, which I hope someone can help me identify or suggest a possiblility. I will start, in this corona-time, with a greeting from the Late Ordovician formation in Norway, just before the End Ordovician

    Gastropod ID

    Found in the Mount Laurel formation at the C&D canal in Delaware. Any idea on the genus?
  5. Aloha, I just got myself a cristmas present, not that old, but to beautiful to resist. A fossil shell from Florida, encrusted in barnacles. I havent got it yet, so here are two pics from the seller. Who can tell me a species or even two? And an age, or is it all holocene? Best regards, J

    Coprolite, gastropod, or other?

    Found this in creek, Eagle Ford, at first thought it was part of gastropod but after closer inspection it started looking more like coprolite now I'm undecided so I will leave it up to the TFF court.
  7. Hello! Please help me identify the gastropod fossils that came to me from Morocco. Unfortunately, the age is unknown. Thanks in advance!

    ??? large gastropods

    Hi friends, I went to Aruma formation area (Campanian-Maastrichrtian) to the Norht of Riyadh city and found this gasrtropod, it is large , 16cm long by 9cm what sp. Is it?
  9. I am going to go to some real sites in eastern New York tomorrow, but I decided to check the rocks by a pond near my grandparents house where I found a couple trilobites and other Devonian fauna this summer. And I found this really nice Platyceras specimen which it turned out had a brachiopod fossil attached near the bottom, where the opening of the shell would be located. I highly doubt that these two organisms are articulated and fossilized together but I thought it was interesting and worth showing here.
  10. JFollowing the advice of some of the people on the forum here I spent part of yesterday afternoon collecting fossils near Kingston NY on the road cutouts on route 9W I was able to get quite a few decent hash plates consisting of Devonian Brachiopods. Unfortunately, I am not yet familiar enough with the area to identify these to the genus or species level (the only brachiopods I know how to ID are Laptaena because they are my favorites and sadly none of these are them). I also found what I think might be a trilobite tale but I think it could also just as easily be more brachiopods, and one foss
  11. Well, it has been a while since a post on the Silurian Leighton Fm. Had to make a trip due to family matters, and once I got back had a lot of work to do. I finally got into a position to start splitting and prepping more shale, and found this new little guy. I am torn between an operculum of a gastropod, and an inarticulate brachiopod. My main argument for an operculum is because of the shape - the only inarticulate brachiopods in this formation are Orbiculoidea and Pholidops. Unfortunately, I cannot find any reliable papers on the brachiopod Pholidops, it looks very similar but

    I found this in the front yard of a house in Oakland, California. The owners are having there property landscaped. Just a muddy blob yesterday. Well folks any ideas?

    Brachiopods and a Gastropod for ID

    I was just labeling and filing some summer finds from the Solon member/ Cedar Valley Formation/ Devonian of central Iowa. These 4 items have me a little confused, so I am reaching out for knowledge! 1. . 2. 3. 4.

    ID please, Trogir, Croatia

    Found it near Trogir, Croatia, karst terrain, what couldit be? about 7 cm long Thanks!
  15. I was recently near Decorah, which is in northern Iowa and near the border with Minnesota. The predominant bedrock there is the Galena Formation. It is chiefly limestone with some interbedded shale. I was there only one full day and had other things to do (other than look for fossils, that is, if you can believe it). I did visit one road-cut along highway 52. I am not geologically informed enough to know what member of the formation was exposed at the road cut, so the closest I can get to dating it is to say that it’s upper Ordovician. The road cut was not a place I’ll vis

    Gastropod from russia

    I found this fossil gastropod on an auction site and I really liked it. But the information is a bit confusing. On the title it states that it is Cretaceous but in the description of the seller it says "Cretaceous-Oxfordian-160 MYA". Oxfordian is a period from the Jurassic, not the Cretaceous. The locality & species (theres 2 species) Location: Kostroma Region Russia Species: Pictavia laevigata & Exelissa quinariia .
