  1. Hello! Could you please help me id it please? I found it yesterday in the Preveza area in Greece, brought by some strong waves on the shore (Mediterranean/Ionian Sea). Thank you!
  2. I don't remember where i found it but i guess it's from the only place i have ever find fossils (rudist fragments and echinoids). These come from Phthiotis, Greece. I know nothing about fossils so i need your help. This rock has a intense smell just like the other fossils i mentioned. However i don't know if this means that this is a fossil too or that it's just the way the rocks smell at the place where i found it. Could it be also a rudist? The only reason i'm not sure is that the rudist fragments i have found has this wavy shape at their top just like this rudist image As you
  3. A speciment recently found in Argolis region of Greece . Upper Anisian - Carnian acording to the scripts but most probably Carnian (lowermost Upper Triassic)
  4. Unsure of what I have found. Hoping for some help.
  5. Hello everyone! Been almost 2 years since I last visited that site and left in situ a nice multiblock. I was thinking again and again @taj reply and tried to correct that mistake. However, every year the site seems to be less accessible and there are rumors that it's forbidden to search there for fossils due to the proximity of the archeological site of the theater, regardless the fact the outcrop is located within private land. Nevertheless, last Saturday 13/11 we visited the place with a friend. Visited 3 possible outcrops without much results. 1. Carnian exposure

    Greek fossils!

    Not only these are the firsts greek fossils in my collection, but are the only fossils that i have found. I found the fossils in Pikermi - Rafina, Attica (nearly Athens). Total over 4-5 kg (or over 20 specimens). I will post some of these. A huge clam, a vertebra, and some... i don't have idea. Age Pliocene or Miocene. Any help with the ID?

    Permian Crinoids ID

    These Crinoids were found on a small cape, in Bali (GREECE).I know what species of Crinoids lived in that place, but I didn' found images of all those species to identify them. Species of Crinoids: Apographiocrinus nodosus Pindaxocrinus granulosus Moapacrinus sp. Protencrinus baliensis Synbathocrinus cretensis Artichthyocrinus koenigi Age; Asselian Can you help me identify them if it's posible? Thank you. 1,21 23
  8. Hello everyone, i found a flint ball in my field approximately 8 cm diameter, in Corfu island in north-western Greece, around 500 meters from the sea. I opened it and the enterior is like in the photo. Apart from the big cavity at the center, there are also many wholes around with red soil inside. Is the big cavity a fossil sponge? If yes, when is approximately dated? Thank you
  9. In a beach near Galaxidi, in Greece, i found some grey fossils on rocks with layers, just like the stromatolites. I believe that these fossils are members of Francevillian biota, witch includes the earliest multicellular organisms that was found in Gabon. These are the reasons that make me think that these fossils are from the Francevillian biota; 1.The fossils have got the same thickness with these that were found in Gabon; 6 mm. 2. In the past, one part of Eurasia (probably Greece) was next to Gabon in the Paleoproterozoic era, when the Francevillian biota appeared.

    ID request Kythera island

    Hello everyone. I was collecting in an abandoned sand quarry in the Greek island of Kythera. The formation is Tortonian - Zanglean made of various hardness/density sandstone. The upper layer looks like river deposits as it has more round pebbles and its thickness is less than a metre. The main formation exceeds 8m. North of this place (800m) and south of it (1000-1200m) there are confirmed Miocene deposits, terrestrial and river origin. I am clueless with this. 2€ coin = 1inch I thought of mammal tooth but I have no idea of such things. My other

    Ammonites Brachiopods Rudist

    Hi everybody, Dimitris sent me some nice stuff and I'd like your opinion about them. A cretaceous ammonite, maybe protetragonites An Oxfordo-callovian one Rynchonellids from the Trias of the Nechinska bara river That rudist from the Maastritchian of Mont Ptoon, Grèce.
  12. Hello everyone! A rather successful day today! Following this article concerning Concavus concavus, I managed to find 5 possible outcrops using Google Earth. Out of those 5, 1st and last were productive. 1st one had mostly ostrea within conglomerate rock. In situ photo and finds, all of them ostrea of various condition. The last section was AMAZING. This picture is taken on a vertical cliff and this is on top of me. So much death in one pic. The rest of the pictures are finds. Some bivalves with both valves preserved, concavus. Unfo
  13. Found these formations on the limestone of the southernmost shores of Alonissos, Greece (below the aptly named camping Rocks). I took some shots of the formations and collected pebbles from a nearby cove bearing the same characteristics. Any suggestions regarding their origin would be much appreciated, especially since there is little documentation on the island geology (according to the only geological map I could find these are neogene formations, yet there are certain geologists who, after visiting the island, suggest this could be a generalisation).

    Planorbis freshwater gastropods?

    Found this mortality plate in the thin compact layer between neogene conglomerates and marl, above the flysch, at Milia beach in Alonissos island, Greece. According to a paper regarding the neogene in Alonissos [ http://sciencepress.mnhn.fr/sites/default/files/articles/pdf/g2019v41a3.pdf ] findings from marl deposits in an abandoned lignite quarry near Votsi village include Planorbis freshwater gastropods. Have I also found planorbis gastropods? Am I looking at Miocene or Pliocene fossils? As always any suggestions are much appreciated!
  15. This summer, I visited the beautiful island of Kythera. Located in South Greece, on the joint of three seas, it is a very calm place that combines wild nature, delicious traditional food and history. The lore says that Zeus castrated his father, Kronos. His testicles fell in the sea at the shores of the island and from there Aphrodite (Venus) was born. Goddess of love and fertility, she is also connected with sea due to the way of her birth. This is the point where mythology, history and lore meet. Since the ancient people discovered pectinidae, they built a temple dedicated to Aph

    Ammonites Epidaurus Greece

    Hello! I am doing some labelling and archiving so that I do not loose track of my fossils. Most of them, I have managed to narrow down to species, but for these little fellas. Some info: Triassic age Scale bar: 1cm 70% Sturia sp.or 30% Arcestes sp. Date of discovery: 2001 (My first found fossils) Location: 37°36'19"N 23°04'25"E The matrix is what locally call "Epidaurus marble". Same marble was used on the upper part of the Ancient theatre nearby, that's why it is full of cephalopods. I have read THIS and THIS post, plus a publication me

    Ammonite ID

    Found a rather large and partially well preserved ammonite in ammonitico rosso dating early to middle Toarcian in the mountains of Epirus, Greece. Partially preserved because the other side was exposed and totally flattened. I am actually puzzled by the flattened state of the inner whorl as opposed to the outer whorl and center which appear intact. The shine is due to the paralloid-acetone mix i coated the specimen with, to prevent further deterioration. Would appreciate any suggestions to the species.

    Cross section of Clypeaster

    Found what appears to be a cross-section of a Clypeaster fossil in Pliocene sea deposits, on the Greek island of Kythera. The length is 16 cm. Any help and suggestions on the species would be much appreciated!

    fossils from Paxos Greece

    Hi guys I looked up fossils in Paxos and only one result cane up , shell beds in Gaios, I didn’t hunt these I found the flint corals on the northern tip of the island tumbled by the sea and seemingly from a flint band about 1/4 up the cliff. The other were quite erratically found on the coast around the island , I also found a belemnite but due to a lack of hammer and chisel couldn’t remove it. Does anyone know anything about these fossils thanks, will
