  1. I believe I got the material from someone on here years ago and I get a chance to go through some from time to time. This is Alafia River stuff from Lithia Florida. It had a note of Oligocene/Miocene for age. One of them is kind of hard to see but right beside the other and I suspect these are internal molds in a piece of coprolite.
  2. Hello and happy New Year! I have visited this region a couple of times, earliest being around 2000 and last time just a few days before the NY Eve. My first visit was limited in Chaeronea, in order to visit the Marble Lion that was erected in honour of the fallen soldiers of Theba, who fought against Philip, father of Alexander the Great. The battle took place in 338BC, technically was a civil war between the city state of Athens and Macedonia. (The Lion) Following the road South of the lion, I found my first rudist on a dirt road. All I can say i
  3. Hello everyone. Proposing a trade of NSR miscellaneous stuff for trade for ammonites. I have mosy verts, gastropods, calcite covered gastropods, calcite covered clams, couplebfish verts, one more tylosaurus tooth, sharks teeth, etc.. Tell me what you want and I'll see if I have it.
  4. Hi Everyone, In the latter half of last month I took a two week trip to Kentucky and Tennessee. My sister, her husband, two of her adult children, and my parents all live in the Elizabethtown/Louisville area and I was able to spend some quality time with them. Fossil collecting was also part of my agenda. Herb, my primary fossil collecting partner in Kentucky and I had a three day trip down to Tennessee planned. Before I went on that expedition, I was out with my brother-in-law driving around central Kentucky. He dropped me off for 20 minutes at the Upper Mississippian site at Wax where
  5. The lower Hunter Valley is underlain predominantly by Permian strata, and encompasses the region around Newcastle, NSW, Australia. It is here that a diverse fossil macrofauna can be found at a disused quarry standing on private property. Mulbring quarry is characterised by excellent exposure of the Permian strata with macrofauna dominated by abundant bryozoans and brachiopods, associated with bivalves, gastropods, and echinoderms. With the weather typically windy this time of year it was no surprise when we hit the black top with a strong westerly wind blowing, fortunately the sun

    Platycerid Gastropods

  7. My wife and I are up in Northern Vermont for the Thanksgiving holiday and were able to take advantage of a beautiful day yesterday by going for a walk in some woods and fields along Lake Champlain. While exploring the shoreline, we came across this rock wall and my wife spotted what looked like a fossil shell. Lo-and-behold, the wall was full of fossils--primarily gastropods I believe. We're not sure where these rocks came from, but the rocks along the lake are Ordivician in age and there's a good chance these came from a similarly-aged rock quarry in the
  8. Hey all! Today I bring you some teeny tiny gastropods! All Inferior Oolite Group, Cotswolds UK. Every formation. There are a few different species that I have described here: Species A: "helter-skelter". A very very loose spiral, resembling a helter skelter... Species B: very neat loose spiraled. Species C: very tight spiral, very common Species D: fascinatingly bumpy textured spiral. Reminds me of a wallpaper! Measurements in cm. Isaac
  9. I recently took a trip to my hometown, San Antonio, Texas, to visit family whom I hadn't seen since before the pandemic. Ever since I caught the fossil bug last year in Maryland, I've been itching to make it back to Texas to explore. This trip's purpose was to catch up with family, but to do so, naturally, I had to catch them up on my new hobby! Two places were easy to add to my itinerary -- both my Mom and Dad have seasonal creeks in their neighborhoods, which I was able to walk. The creeks in my Mom's neighborhood expose Albian rocks from the Edwards Group.
  10. 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
  11. 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.

  19. 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?
  20. 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

  22. 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
  23. 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
