  6. Need A Little Help Here.

    I'm stuck on this one. It's Paleogene from S.Alabama, Gosport Sand formation. Thanks in advance.
  7. Paleogene Unknown

    I found this on the Alabama river a couple years ago, still trying to ID it. Paleogene, Claiborne group, Lisbon formation. Not a "one -of " obviously. Can't find it in any of my references, any help would be appreciated.
  8. Gastropods

    Can anyone identify these? They were a gift, to add to my collection. There was a card inside that read, "Gastropods from Mexico." So far, I haven't found any matches online. I didn't think to include something for scale, but they're 1.25" to 1.75" in length.
  9. Caloosahatchee Micro Gastropods

    Hi, Just thought I would show some examples of the micro gastropds that are found in the Caloosahatchee fm of Florida. They all come from sieving the contents of larger shells and are between 2 and 8mm. Caecum coronellum Caecum floridanum Caecum imbricatum Cyclostremiscus dartschi Cyclostemiscus sp. Solariorbis funiculus Mioceras sp Kurtziella limonitella margaritifera Cadulus quadridentatus
  10. Okay, I found these in Mississippi Selma Chalk Formation. Gastropods.... not sure what brand/flavor/species... these are the predacious ones aren't they? Naticacea? Please note: lack of polish. Sometimes I behave, and don't give in to the Lapidary Force... Thanks The Mutt
  11. Hi Everyone, Found this poorly preserved Gastropod in a SW Indiana coal mine site. Wondering if it is Pharkodonotus? Thanks for looking, Jed Length 3cm Width 3cm
  12. Whiskey Bridge Gastropod Id Help Needed

    I have been searching through some Whiskey Bridge matrix I received a while back. This stuff is amazing, full of excellently preserved gastropods. It also has a good amount of micro shark, fish and ray teeth. (thats for another post soon) I have found several references online and have ID'd much of what I have found, but there are a few which elude me. I will post my ID'd finds another time. Thanks for any help you can give to Id these 8 specimens. unknown 1 ... 8mm ..... unknown 2 ... 5mm .....
  13. On Sunday, Oct. 27 I decided to hit a site in the Platteville formation in Southwest Wisconsin. I arrived at around 9:30am and the weather had just broadcasts that it was a balmy 32°F/0°C. While being a bit chilly, I came prepared with a coat and gloves which I was very thankful for. My wife was having a baby shower and with a 2hr drive I knew I should be back to help load/unload her haul at 2:00. This left me with only about 2.5hrs of collecting time and limited me to one site. My main goal was trilobites, but I also know someone who is working on the cephalopods of the formation so I kept a keen eye out for those as well. I only found one potential trilobite, but if it turns out to be complete it will be my first of this species which is quite exciting for me. Here come the photos, only one on this post and then the rest in the next two posts... This is my "hopefully" complete trilobite. Calyptaulax plattevillensis
  14. Gastropod Name?

    Found this in the Commanche Peak, Hood Co.,TX. It differs from many Tylostoma in the same area. Can anyone help me id? Swirls at the top are interesting. Thanks in advance for any help.
  15. Gastropod Or Ammonite?

    I am unsure if these are gastropods or ammonites. I am thinking ammonites but just wanted a conformation. Thanks Silurian, Wabash formation btw.
  16. Rio Puerco

    I visited a very cool place over the weekend... ...Cretaceous marine " washes" with a Jurassic background. There were a few ammonites... ...and the largest gastropod I have ever found! It was a good day.

  18. Three Formations, Various Fossils

    Window Formation (New York) / Ashlock Formation (Kentucky) / Black River Formation (Ontario) I have put some names with them but I'm only about 50% sure what they are, some might be right? Would somoneone be able to confirm or correct those that are wrong?

  20. Gastropod

    From the album Illinois Fossils

  21. Athleta Petrosa, Perhapsa?

    I'm no gastropodiatrist, but I think this specimen is Athleta petrosa. It was found in Shoal Creek in Austin, TX, which has everything from Cretaceous to last Thursday, but I suspect this is Eocene. It's not the most pristine gastropod I've ever found, but it has some nice detail on the whorls. What do you think?
  22. Some sort of Brachiopod?

    From the album Backyard Firepit Rock with Surprise

    Thought this could be a clam, but not sure due to the extension of shell. Maybe a brachipod?
