    Shells ID

    Hi Forum, i'd like to ask you identification of these shells from omhden quarry. I'll try to guess by myself using the Holzmaden Museum speciments photos i took when i visit it as reference, maybe i can get some of them good 1. Pseudomytiloides dubius 2. Pseudomytiloides dubius 3. Pseudomytiloides dubius 4. Plagiostoma punctatum 5. Pseudomytiloides dubius 6. Ammonite apticus (cornaptychus sanguinolarius) Thanks a lot Paolo
  2. L.S., I recently purchased an old collection of plant fossils. The boxes also contained an odd couple of non-plants, which I would like to offer up for trade. Ideally, I would like to get some plant fossils in return. Photos below, with scale in centimetres at bottom. Disclaimer: The information below is "as received". I cannot guarantee provenance/identifications are 100% correct since these pieces come from an old collection, plus marine beasties are not really my cup of tea... Kind regards, Tim Specimen A: Large plate with several ammonites

  7. A new paper is available online that you may find interesting: Regalado Fernández, O.R., and Werneburg, I., 2022. A new massopodan sauropodomorph from Trossingen Formation (Germany) hidden as ' Plateosaurus' for 100 years in the historical Tübingen collection. Vertebrate Zoology 72: 771–822. doi:10.3897/vz.72.e86348. In case anyone's aware, the holotype of Tuebingosaurus maierfritzorum was found in 1922 and referred to the nominal species 'Gresslyosaurus plieningeri' by German paleontologist Friedrich von Huene. This specimen, which was long catalogued as GPIT IV but now bears the new ca

    Another unknown from the Piesberg

    L.S., Specimen in the photographs below was found in the Upper Carboniferous (Westphalian D) of the Piesberg, near Osnabrück, Germany. Scale on last photo is approximate. To me this looks like the rear end of some segmented animal. Any idea what it could be? Thanks, Tim
  9. I found this rock and it looks a bit weird, does anyone have any idea what it is? Found in a village on the ground, in Germany, 7-8 cm.
  10. Hello everyone, I would like to know what this Fossil might be. I thought it looked a bit similar to a whale hearing bone, but not as much that I could be certain. The Fossil was found in the north of Germany, near the Baltic sea. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you very much in advance. Greetings Lukas
  11. Hi, more fossils from my collection. The first two pictures are of a pyritized Ammonite from Buttenheim, Germany and is from the Jurassic. The next two are of a pyritized Ammonite from the Volga River, Russia and is Jurassic. The next picture is of Marston Marble. The second to last and the final is Beringiaphyllum cupanoides from the Fort Union Formation in Montana.

    pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)

    From the album: Holzmaden

    This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ... Some more pictures:

    Psiloceras planorbis

    the oldest jurassic ammonites you can find in Germany are Psiloceras. Its the earliest Ammonit in the Jurassic ever. A very "boring one", no or less fine ribs, no spikes... But great and not easy to find. This nice slab comes from northwestern Germany, Horn-Bad Meinberg. from a road construction in the 80th of last century

    One of the rarer fishes is Platysomus gibbosus. Today it is nearly impossible to find a complete one, if you have luck you´ll get parts of this up to 25 cm long fish. This one was around 18 cm and in perfect condition

    From the album: "Kupferschiefer", Fossils from the black permain shales

    The reason why it is called "Kupferschiefer" (that means something like "copper shale" is the presence of copper and pyrite. Some of the fishes have pyrit scales and bones, but they are rare today. Could only be found many years ago in the time of mining, deep in the mountain. This is one of these fishes with part of the scales and skull pyritized.
