    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
  2. 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?
  3. 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?
  4. 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!

    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 !
  7. 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
  9. 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

    Literature on fossils

    Fossil forum, Good morning. I have been looking for literature on the following for a while now, and have not been successful. I was wondering if anyone already had information on the following, or can direct me to a place where I can look for it myself. Brachiopods, specifically Lingulids (classification and identification) Salopina genus ( classification and identification), this genus was moved from Orthis, for further clarification Rhychonellida (classification and identification, at least to the genus level). Camarotoechia genus (classificat

    Fossils in Lebanon

    Greetings! I've been collecting marine fossils ever since I could remember. However, only recently have I started reading and researching about these fossils. I started researching for the correct rocks to break open in hope of finding new fossils (ammonites, fish fossils, etc..) instead of my usual findings (gastropods, clams, rarely urchins). I took some advice from you guys and began looking for a good book that might help on which rocks to look for (keepings in mind Lebanon is mostly early-middle cretaceous and Jurassic) I've used this map to find my way to Jurassic
  12. Icy? Well, compared to some areas in the US or Moscow, it had only a few degrees below zero (Celsius) last Sunday. The nights had about -10°C, the days about -2°C. This period lastet from last Friday to Monday. No snow at all and very, very dry air. The last two days we had about 0°C during the night and +10°C maximum during the day. Still very dry. So without any snow and clear, but "cold" weather, I checked out a few Miocene sites around St. Josef in western Styria, Austria. I have made a detailed report about the area more then a year ago here: Rocks and fossils wer
  13. Dear collectors! I'm curious If someone interesting for my collection of Mollusc, mainly gastropods and bivalves from tertiary of Europe. I have more than 1000 specimens! I'm open-minded and accept all offers! I am interested in quality fossils and NOT quantity!
  14. 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

    Whiskey Bridge Gastropod?

    Hi Everyone. I found this gastropod at Whiskey Bridge, near Bryan, Texas two years ago which so far I've been unable to identify. Whiskey Bridge is a marine Eocene site, Crockett Formation, Stone City Member. The specimen is between a half and three quarters of an inch. Thanks. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    off the CA coast

    A firend of me sent me this pic of cobble stone he picked up on the seashore. The only thing I could tell are the gastropods. What else are there? Possible ID and age?
  17. Cold day in the desert but a ton of fun with some great finds! Thank you @PFOOLEY for the wisdom. These all were found in the Carlile formation in Sandoval County, New Mexico.

    Waccamaw Gastropods II

    I have been working through a bag of matrix that I received from @sixgill pete from the Waccamaw Formation (Pleistocene) of North Carolina. Earlier I showed a couple of interesting bryozoans that I picked from the matrix (Waccamaw Bryozoan) and the first group of gastropods (Waccamaw Gastropods I). From the 1 quart bag of matrix, I pulled out over 60 different species of gastropods and am up to about 45 species of bivalves! This post represents the second group of gastropods that I have some identification questions about. Again, these are all very small, most are only a few mm's. I appre

    Waccamaw Gastropods I

    I have been working through a bag of matrix that I received from @sixgill pete from the Waccamaw Formation (Pleistocene) of North Carolina. Earlier I showed a couple of interesting bryozoans that I picked from the matrix (Waccamaw Bryozoan) and now I am finishing up on the gastropods. From the 1 quart bag of matrix, I pulled out over 60 different species of gastropods! The biggest ones were a couple of Olive shells at about 2 inches tall as well as about a half dozen other gastropods that are big enough to easily view with the naked eye, but by far the vast majority of the shells are quite
  22. So I found this fossil skull... Kidding! Anyway, back digging in the needmore formation outside Winchester VA and I’ve started finding a lot (like in one small part of the exposure, a whole lot) of these sorts of shells. Initial thought was some kind of ammonite. Searched for mid Devonian and got agoniatites vanuxemi but I don’t get any hits in this formation/location. Still looks right though, although I guess it could be some kind of gastropod? Mostly a little over 5 cm at the largest. Also, they’re generally the same color/consistency, save for this one very colorful specimen (very dis

    Rio Puerco fossil finds

    Went out to Windmill Site in the Rio Puerco Valley today(11/27). It was very cold but very worth it. Found some ammonite pieces, a few oyster shells, and a lot of teeth. We are unsure who the teeth belonged to. Can anyone help us identify these finds? Thank you in advance. Beautiful day in New Mexico.
  24. This weekend I visited again a late ordovicium site north of Oslo, as I now know is the katian period (that applies to the earlier posts on this website which I then, mistakenly, thought was middle ordovicium). First, for the first time I found two graptolites in a limestone, and first time in this site, I m not sure but I think it is graptolites, but it seems so. Next, I found this stone which, I believe, includes an Gompoceras Nautiloid (the brown in the middle) and some nice gastropods. The size of the Nautiloid is about 4,5 cm. And then this small gastro

    Back to the Ohio Valley

    Hi Everyone, I took a 2 week trip to the Ohio Valley, arriving back in New York about a week ago. It was primarily a family visit since many of my relatives now reside in the Elizabethtown, KY area. However, the Ohio Valley, as some of you know, is very rich in Paleozoic fossils and I just had to make a few stops on my way there and back as well as between family engagements. I will try to share enough to give you all a gist of it: It was a long day's drive from the northern suburbs of New York City to Richmond, Indiana where I spent the first night. The next day I was headed down State R
