  1. Gastropod *fossil*?

    I am going to preface this with a definitive statement. I know nothing about non-Devonian gastropods. I obtained a rather nice shell collection recently with hundreds of really quality shells. As I was sorting through them, I came across this one which would appear to be fossilized. It has a very matte, chalky texture, and shows signs of having spent some degree of time not alive. That being said, I will restate my previous assertion that I know nothing about non-Devonian gastropods. From some cursory research via image search, it would seem to be a Calotrophon. If anyone has any thoughts, that would be super! Thanks in advance! P.S. I apologize for the photo quality. My phone has pretty pathetic depth-of-field at close range. -J
  2. Hi, This is an interesting beach find. It's about 1 1/2" x 1 1/2", Found on Honeymoon Beach, Florida USA. It appears to me a baby Clam Bivalve embedded in a Snail Gastropod Limestone Cast. The clam is about a half of inch at it's widest point and is crystallized. I'm not sure if it is a fossilized shell I'm looking at or a cast of the shell? I've found many snail casts, but not one with another shell in it. Anybody ever see one like this? Thanks for looking!
  3. This past weekend I stopped by Glenerie, NY to look for some Devonian braciopods and gastropods. This was a very cool location as many of the shells, preserved in silica, weather out of the rock complete and ripe for the taking. Thanks @Jeffrey P for suggesting the location! I plan to spend much of this summer exploring the fossil localities of NY and this spot was certainly a great introduction. Here are some of my finds. Brachiopods
  4. Austrotriton sp

    Common shell collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria.
  5. I found this shell cast on Honeymoon Island, Florida, USA. As you can see from the photos it's a complete shell cast and measures about 4 x 3 1/2 inches. I did some research and found similar pictures that looked like Turritella Shell. Would the Forum agree with this ID?? If so I read that this is an extinct species of fossil sea snail. Is this correct? I appreciate your feedback. Thank you!
  6. Baryspira sp Fischer, 1883

    Olive shell collected from Jan Juc Marl. This shell is a large example for this location.
  7. Bathytoma rhomboidalis, Woods, 1879

    Common shell collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria. Also known as Bathytoma rhomboidalis.
  8. Ternivoluta antiscalaris McCoy, 1876

    Common shell collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria.
  9. Volute

    Common shell collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria.
  10. Biplex maccoyi

    Common shell collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria. Also known as Gyrineum maccoyi.
  11. Gastropod

    Collected on my first trip with The New South Wales Fossil Club. Gastropods aren't common from this location so I was pleased to find it.
  12. Three Ordovician Uncertainties

    I have a hunch about these, but I felt it best to get some more seasoned input. The first two are trilobite partials. I'm tempted to call the one on the right just another small Isotelus, but the segmentation doesn't appear quite right. Found in the Lindsay Fm. The second image is a matter of dispute (or so I was told) with one expert stating it is an ammonoid, and another stating it is a gastropod. Found in the Whitby shale. About 5 cm in diameter.
  13. Hello everyone! This past Sunday, while I was at the "Dig with the Experts" event at Penn Dixie in Hamburg, NY, I found something a little different from my usual finds. I think it's a gastropod, but I'm not at all sure, so I was hoping for your input. The specimen is about 5mm in diameter, and you can see it in the eight pictures below - thanks in advance for your help! Oh, and the age is mid-Devonian. Monica @DevonianDigger - are these pictures more helpful? Thanks again!
  14. Just a rock or Gastropod maybe?

    This has an odd shape could just be weathered but thought I’d ask the experts. Found in Ohio in a field. Could it be a gastropod? Maybe? Thanks!
  15. ADAM's SILURIAN

    Hoooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Here we are at last, into Adam's Silurian. Thanks for looking. First up is the Lower Silurian or Llandovery and I begin with a problem. I posted this one incorrectly in Adam's Ordovician as it had got it's label muddled up with an Ordovician Favosites I had that has vanished in the move here, but is being replaced by kind forum member @Herb Anyway, this, I remember now I've found the correct label, is from the greenish Browgill Formation, part of the Stockdale Group from a cutting near Skelgill (Skelghyll) in Cumbria, Northern England. It seems to be a tabulate coral, but I can't find any listed for this location, only mentions of small, rare, rugose corals. It has the star shaped corallites of a Heliolitidid, but seems to be tightly packed together like a Favositidid. A couple of species of Palaeofavosites seem to be close and are a bit star-shaped,, but anyone know any better? @TqB@piranha hmm who else? The coral bit, an external mold, is a maximum of 3.5 cm across and each corallite up to 2 mm.
  16. I went river collecting one weekend in early April this year, the water dropped pretty darn low for this time of year allowing me to get to some spots that usually I can only access June through September. I found more echphora than I've ever come across in a single trip, a couple of them are HUGE and a few were near perfect/complete! Also found my first larger (2 of them!) Welch (or conc? still trying to ID it) from this site along with a great array of other items. My personal favorite from this trip was the echphora with a barnacle attached - I always love to find barnacles attached to bivalves and gastropods and this guy even had some worm tubes attached with it! . PM me if you want some higher quality images to zoom in on - I only had the four photo's and file limit size restricted what I could put that would allow you to really zoom in on each item clearly. Don't ask me WHERE I found these, I will tell you exactly what the title says, Eastern NC on a river.

  21. Ammonite help?

    I found these in a river in SE, Ok. I was hoping someone could give me some info on them. What are the small ones? I was thinking gastropod. There are a few truckloads of those where I found the big ones. Also do big ones like these have any value? I seen big polished ones going for quite a bit, are these polishable? Why do some have defined ridges and arent spiral. I don't know much about them I just spent about 30 mins in a river to find those. Any help would be appreciated!
  22. B-Day gifts.

    Todays me birthday and I thought I would share what the Mrs. got me. I'm not a gift guy as I typically do not accept gifts well even though I do appreciate them. One of the down sides to autism I suppose...I dunno. But a while back I expressed to her I needed some small brushes for removing dirt in the field on small finds and such. She got me 4 sets and I was completely surprised actually. She also got me some agatized gastropods from Morocco that I absolutely love. The brushes work really well and I highly recommend them. So...without further adue.... The brushes! agatized gastopods, Cerithium sp. I typically do not collect Moroccan fossils as they easily faked or the site information is sometimes lost and I feel it takes the context away, but thats just me. I do have a Metacanthina barrandei from Alnif, Morroco that I got from the person who prepped it. It came with before, during and after prep pictures which I absolutely love. Just thought I'd share these with yall. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Best regards, Paul
  23. Turrittela prep

    Just finished up a plate with a few Turrittela and gastropods that was added to a package of trilobites I got from another member.
  24. Hello! Here is an odd gastropod - Is it a "devil's toenail"? I've never seen one like this! Many thanks! DR
  25. Septarian Gastropod

    I found this "septarian gastropod" (Platyceras sp. Mississippian, Edwardsville Formation, Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA) at the MAPS show this past weekend. When I saw it I couldn't say no. It looks like a snail cone overstuffed with gypsum. I've found fossils like this before in the Silurian shales of NY but they weren't this large or nice. Post similar mineral exploding fossils if you want. Thanks
