  1. rocket

    Scaphites obliquus

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    unique and lovely are heteromorph ammonites like Scaphites. This small but great one comes from middle cenomanian of southern germany, housed in the collection of a friend of mine
  2. rocket

    Scaphites cf. diana

    From the album: Westphalian cretaceous fossils

    a very nice and rare Scaphites cf. diana from upper middle santonian of Gelsenkirchen-Buer. One of the most perfect diana I have ever seen, around 4 cm
  3. rocket


    fine uncoiled Ammonite Aegocrioceras bicarinatum from the tonstein-pit Resse near Hannover. Lower cretaceous, hauterivian. Small ammonit, 5 cm diameter. Phragmocon is pyritized, living chamber partial calcited. Aegocrioceras is a very various ammonit, from tightly curled up to strange and very twisted shapes. I will post some next time

  4. Hello, Does this association of Didymoceras cheyennense and Baculites compressus seem legitimate? Any restoration/reconstruction going on, or composite of multiple individuals, especially on the Didymoceras? Dimensions are 22cm x 14cm x 14cm, and listed as of Lower Cretaceous age and from the Pierre Shale of South Dakota. Also, if you had to pick one heteromorph ammonite specimen, would you personally purchase this for your collection (i.e. is it a good example of Didymoceras cheyennense)? I realize this is just a part of the inner whorls. Complete Didymoceras in gene

    ID Ammonite?

    Hello, Anyone know what species this is (and if it's legit)? The seller simply calls it a heteromorph from Germany, late Cretaceous ~ 60mya and measures about 10.8 cm long.
  6. Hello, I'm considering purchasing between 3 heteromorph ammonites. I wanted to ask if they are authentic, and whether it seems like there is any restoration or carving going on. Also, if there's any one that looks to be in particularly bad condition. Here is #1. Presumably Nostoceras: #2, also Nostoceras, appears upside-down in matrix with turricone still embedded. Perhaps I can prep that myself? And #3, listed as Acrioceras tabarelli:
  7. Hello, new member here. I just purchased this heteromorph ammonite from what's considered a reputable website but I've started to get concerned on the authenticity of this specimen due to the heterogeneous coloration (some places dark, some places light). Is there a chance there's some fake pieces as a composite or perhaps heavy restoration? Also it was listed as eubostrychoceras indopacificum, but it looks different from photos of other such specimens. It seems more like a Nostoceras malagasyense, but perhaps I'm just mistaken?

    Nostoceras draconis

    From the album: C&D Canal Micro Fossils

  9. Some more find from Carniol my attempt at id based on http://le-coin-a-fossiles.fr/Gargasien.html first Baculites sp. some of my favourite finds Is further id possible?
  10. Hi All, Over a year ago I found this in situ NSR - Ozan formation Late Cretaceous; Gulfian Series. It's the only one I've found like this in both size and fossilization. I'm terrible with ammonite identifications and would love to put a name to this little specimen and an opinion on if this might be a heteromorphic ammonite? Might it be a Scaphites sp? Thanks! Suture lines:

    Oxybeloceras sp.

    From the album: C&D Canal Micro Fossils

  12. These heteromorph ammonites were found in the middle East in a senonian outcrop. In a limestone but the fossils are made of flint and removed by acid. the pieces are 3-4 centimetres long and are three different individuals. Can you please help me ID them?

    T. peramplum #1

    From the album: Fauna and Flora of the Austin Group in Texas

    This specimen is the largest of its genus in my collection, and the largest known to me in any collection. It measures about 7 cm in height, and 4.3 cm in diameter. It retains its tubercles in the most mature whorl sections that are preserved well enough to tell. The specimen is quite crushed.

  21. Almost 2 weeks ago I went with a small group from the rockhound club up to the Vancouver Island Paleontology Museum and the Courtenay & District Museum to see their fossils. Weather was too crummy to do an actual collecting field trip at any place! I guess it's OK to post pics here. I won't post anybody's face. The lighting and some of the display cases themselves presented problems for photography at both places, besides which it was kind of a whirlwind tour, so these shots are the best I could do. I'd say the poor lighting was the worst thing about both places, but we're dealin

    Unknown Ammonites

    Ralph @Nimravis generously gave me these Ammonites. I think he bought them at a garage sale. There was no data with them. I have zero experience with ammonites. I am hoping someone will be able to put a genus name on one or more of them or even venture a guess as to from where they may have come and what time period. Does that matrix / assemblage look familiar to anyone? One appears to be a heteromorph. I think I see Inoceramus in there. Maybe Cretaceous? Texas? They are all the same color (differences in color between the pieces in the photos is due to different lighting). Sc

    Ammonite in Hokkaido

    Name: Hyphantoceras venustum Location: Obira, Hokkaido, Japan Age: Santonian of Late Cretaceous Description: A heteromorph ammonite found in North Japan. This species is very rare. It has four rows of tubercles. A completely preserved species are unknown.
