    Magila latimana Muenster 1839

    Taxonomy from Fossilworks.org. The state of preservation of Magila is mostly poor, which becomes understandable when you consider that Magila was a burrowing crustacean living in the ground. Therefore, a more calcified carapace was not necessary. Only the exceptionally wide claws are mostly well preserved. These probably also served for digging. Diagnosis from Garassino & Schweigert 2006, p. 22: “Carapace cylindrical laterally flattened; deep cervical groove strongly directed forward; one or two carinae weak in antennal region; rostrum short and edentate; antennal spine well developed;
  2. Hi Folks, Ran into this little guy 10 mins into our trip to the brooks yesterday, never seen anything like it. I believe this is a Ghost Shrimp but I could use a second set of eyes on it. Additionally, I'm wondering how I should prep the little guy - I believe 95% of the fossil is an internal mold as the fragile black shell appears to be the top layer with much of it being worn away. As such I don't think I can reveal much more by chipping away at the rock. would love to hear some thoughts Pic: In Field Other views

    More shrimp claws

    About a month ago, I took advantage of a 3-day weekend to go out to the Peninsula with my brother and came back with a bag full of concretions. Now I'm just trying to work through them. Been getting a lot of duds or incompletes, but here are the last 2 I did. I'm fairly pleased with this claw! I inflicted a lot of damage on it (I use a Dremel 290 which doesn't quite have the feather touch of an air scribe), but it's very complete, and WOW, the color on this one! This one is pretty big, and I like the patterns you can see on it. However, a commonalit

    Anudda One (Shrimp Claw, That Is)

    Prepped another ghost shrimp claw from Twin Beach last night. I think it turned out pretty well. Unfortunately, the glue I used to reattach some of the little bits of exoskeleton left a bit of residue which you can see in the picture, but I don't think it detracts from the piece all that much.

    Cretaceous shrimp claw

    Hello all, one of ny early 2022 trips has yielded these little beauties. With some help on the IDs a ghost shrimp claw (Mesostylus sp.) And partial Anomoeodus plate.
  7. I'm fairly new to fossil preparation. After a trip to the Olympic Peninsula back in November, I had a ton of concretions and no way to see what was inside. At first a tried splitting them with a hammer, but after busting a perfectly good claw into a million pieces, it was clear that I needed some actual preparatory equipment, either an air scribe or a Dremel 290. I went with the 290, and for the last month I've been working through the concretions. Most of them are duds, either empty or just a small piece of exoskeleton at the center. I unearthed a pretty solid looking defensive claw a few wee
  8. Hi everybody, Boy, it's been a while since I made a post, but then it's been a while since I did any kind of fossil hunting. A friend of mine who I met while volunteering for a nature center invited me out on a camping trip to the Olympic Peninsula. He claimed to know a couple beaches where the concretion game is really good, and he sure wasn't wrong! The weather was mostly terrible; bitter cold and heavy rain punctuated by occasional blue sky, but when you love beachcombing as much as we do, you forget about it! This is the Pysht Formation at Twin Beach. Lots o

    From the album: Huge Big Brook Fossil Collection

    ONLY the brachiopods, ghost shrimp, belemnite phragmacone, crab claws, and snails were collected from big brook
  11. Good morning allow me to first say how much I’ve learned from you folks. Admittedly starting from scratch, by reading your posts and then googling words I’m getting a great education. I never knew what concretion or chert or phragmocone meant. I have a long ways to go but I’m learning today’s question is these two photos. They were found in big brook and the longer is one inch long. Chewed up belemnite or ghost shrimp burrow (wouldn’t be porous?) or what?

    Tear Drop shaped trace fossil

    Hello, first post, so apologies in advance for any unintended transgressions. I found this one in Big Brook, New Jersey among the plethora of trace fossils usually attributed to shrimp, that are usually disregarded by most hunters here. (I personally find them kind of interesting, and have a lot of fun when I bring them home and tell my wife they are "witch's fingers.") Usually the tube is more rounded and longer and yes, "finger-like." This one is tear shaped and flat on one side. I have seen similar shaped fossils online attributed to insects. There is also an old post here of a simila
  13. Me and my brother, shajzer64, both ended up having a day off on the 26th so we ended up heading down to the Cretaceous steams of Monmouth County. It was cold - really cold, but the steams treated us well. I found a large Mosasaur tooth (1.4 inch) with really nice coloration; it is red, yellow, orange and black, a nice ghost shrimp burrow, and my best Ischyodus (ratfish) specimen to date. Shane came up with a nice Xiphactinus tooth, a few nice gastropods, and a very large piece of fossil bone we are going to take to the museum in a few weeks. Overall, it was a tough trip but I'm glad we went fo
