  1. Imagine working for a year in a small college science department and there was a room you vaguely knew was there but didn’t have the keys to and never saw anyone going in or out. Then one day, campus grounds workers open the door, and you inquire what is going on. You discover it is an old earth science storage room (earth science hadn’t been taught there in many years) and everything is to be discarded the next day into the dumpster to make room for some new purpose. It’s a room about 15 feet by 20feet packed with boxes on shelves filling the space up to the ceiling. It is a dusty disordered
  2. Today I stopped to stretch my back and did about 10 minutes of collecting near Whites Creek, Tennessee- I believe that this might be Richmond Group Ordovician. I would be looking for a little help on some IDs, I believe @Peat Burns, @Herb And @Tidgy's Dad might be able to help out. Here are some of my finds- Brachiopods- Gastropods- Bryozoan- I believe that the smaller pieces are Constellatia Florida. Hash Plates-

    Gastropods from Algeria

    Hello! I would like to share with you these photos of a fossil rock, laying in the bed of the river M'zi, in Laghouat city, Algeria, North-west Africa. Gastropods probably nerinea , known in this area from upper Cenomanian. Absolutly no idea about genus. Thank you.

    Several fossils with original shell

    This little rock is from Eagle Ford, since it was cracked I broke it open to be surprised by all the fossils in it and that I saw shiny things with color. Definitely not what I'm used to seeing! I assuming most of these have original shell, there are gastropods that are different colors, and also bivalves with different color, different sub order? Several heteromorph ammonites I think, and some kind of worm. Curious what the shiny multicolored area is, a couple unknowns, dendrite I think, and last one I'm not sure about, scaphite maybe? Appreciate any help!

    Floydia gigantea

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    Floydia gigantea. Much more common than Westerna gigantea. Whorls greatly enlarges in size and tend to be more oval shaped and flattened. Strongly resembles some modern top shells. There's a few other giant gastropods but I still need to check more in the near future. I was surprised seeing this good sized well preserved specimen in the middle sitting out in the open.

    Bensbergia pulchra

    From the album: Lime Creek Devonian Rockford Iowa

    Bensbergia pulchra Rare - only had found two so far. Very distinct whorls, more like some modern gastropods like tulip snails.

  10. Hello, I have been going through some fossils that I bought a while back. I came across this agatized snail from Morocco. I’ve tried to find more information on these agatized snails, but have been unable to find much. Some sellers online say that they come from Assa, Morocco, while others say they come from the Dakhla region. I’m also wondering what species this little guy belongs to, and a more precise age for these gastropods, although I’m pretty sure they are Eocene. Does anyone have any information regarding these agatized snails?
  11. Last summer I became interested in collecting mollusks from the Chicago area rather by accident. I happened to find some shells in a dug up wastepile. I contacted the Prairie Research Institute and it turned out a geologist there was interested in C14 dating them for a surficial geologic mapping project he was working on. I then became obsessed with finding more from different points around the city. I was able to find 5 other localities and these samples were also donated. These are are freshwater aquatic mollusks from the Tolleston shoreline of ancestral Lake Michigan. Overall it was fascina

  13. This all started over a year ago. I was selected as Member of the Month and a couple of TFF members from Texas invited me down to the big state to collect. I primarily collect in my home region, the northeast, but I've taken fossil forays to New Mexico, Kentucky, and Germany and was willing to consider a trip to Texas and the opportunity to visit some classic fossil sites and collect fossils that are outside my usual focus. I began planning this about ten months ago, contacted potential fossil collecting partners and did my own research on fossil sites, geology, and the types of fossils I woul
  14. Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules here posting a link. I spent my weekend finally putting my catalog into a proper database, and creating a user interface for it. I used to use Google Sheets, which is pretty great. If I wanted to, I could use them as the source of data, but I decided to create a proper MYSQL database so I can keep relationships across tables, such as the stratigraphy of particular find locations. I have many more improvements coming for it, but it is at least functional right now. Everything from CG-0001 to CG-0161 is from the Glenshaw Formation, Conemaugh Group

  16. Texas Springtime is my favorite - we haven't had much rain, but the weather is....typical Texas. 60 one day and 90 the next. But I find my tolerance for random temperatures is way better when I am out fossil hunting! So here are some finds from recent excursions. Plus a few shots along the way..... Some local Longhorns. As I head out of my neighborhood, these critters are sometimes out enjoying the Texas sunshine The fossiling started with a nice trip out with Erich Rose to a Glen Rose spot - first thing I spot is something i've never found in our Central Texas f
  17. found in Lebanon Not found in any specific formation but, according to the geo map i have, the rocks are late Cretaceous(albian-vraconian) lots of gastropods, bivalves and brachiopods around. i want to say its some sort of ammonite, but as far as known fossils here ammonites arent some of them. the ridges on it seem to be connected to each other like a puzzle would be (image 3). also the fossil tapers(image 1). this is all the information i have. Note: To my knowledge no Ammonites have been recorded in Lebanon Thanks for your help guys!
  18. On a recent trip to the Wutach Valley I discovered a pile of fossils on a slope by the side of the road which had obviously been disposed by somebody who didn't want them any more. Among other things was a small piece of matrix chock-a-block full of various gastropod species. They all look somehow familiar to me, but I can't for the life of me figure out where they are from, what stratigraphical formation they belong to or what their names are. Does any one have any suggestions?

    Ifrane, Morocco.

    Hi, gang. Some of you may remember the Southern Morocco trip I took in February. One of the places visited was quite near to me, about 70 km, lovely Swiss style mountain town called Ifrane where I found some Middle Jurassic brachiopods and echinoids. See http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93193-ifrane-middle-atlas-morocco/&tab=comments#comment-1026671 A friend offered to drive me up there for the day so off we went I decided to check some outcrops on the other side of the road this time so went and had a peek.Sorry, no photos this time as wifey did
  20. This chunk of rock and several others were in the local creek next to the railroad track. It appears these rocks were brought in for railroad erosion control next to the small creek runs parallels to the railroad track. Also darker in color than surrounding chalk limestones, and full of gastropods normally not found in this area. Are these Cretaceous gastropods?

    Gastropod ID

    Fossil Forum, I have recently uncovered the external mold of a gastropod. I am thinking that it is Platyschisma helicites, but am unsure. The main problem is that I am unaware of the formation it is from. I found it right next to an outcrop of the Leighton Formation, but the fauna and the matrix does not match it. It might be from the Edmunds Formation, but I am unsure of this too. Either way, they are both Silurian. Any help on its ID would be appreciated. Here are some pictures of it:

    Very long needle like cephalopod?

    There is so much going on on this rock not sure I captured it all. Found in park east of DFW airport, North Texas Eagle Ford. Most interesting is the long object running down center of rock, almost the whole length. Have not been able to find anything similar. Not sure what else is there other than snails, ammonite, bacculites, maybe worms and tiny turritella looking gastropod? Appreciate any ID !
  23. Despite the shortest and most mild winter I've experienced in North Dakota (getting out this early is rare) it still feels like it has been an eternity since I got out. Thankfully I finally got a hold of enough landowners to warrant a trip to the Fox Hills Formation and celebrate the spring weather. While most of the later sites I visited were a bust the first site of the morning was excellent and contained fauna not often found in the Fox Hills Formation in North Dakota. 3 new species for me in fact. This site represents a brackish transition area of the top of the Fox Hills Forma

    Florida Unknowns Part 1

    Having returned last week from a nice visit with my son in Florida, it was time to examine the fossils that I snuck home with. Eventually, I will make a trip report, but I need to identifying my unknowns first. So Here goes, and I might as well tag @MikeR right off the bat! The next unknown appears to be sponge like. In fact the largest one ACTUALLY FLOATS in water. So these are very light weight. I couldn't find sponges in the Tamiami, so maybe my formation is incorrect. The rubbl
  25. My girlfriend, Valerie and I were visiting my aunt in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is 90 and lives in a senior residence. I wasn't planning to go fossil hunting or even thinking about fossils. However, on our last night there, we were walking in the neighborhood to burn off a few calories when I spotted a number of fossil shells in front of an apartment complex. We spent about half an hour searching the shells for complete ones in good condition- found over twenty species. Valerie got into it too and found some excellent specimens. After that we began spotting fossil shells everywhere. It's a
