  1. Hey everyone, I need your help! I recently bought a mystery box with some ambers and i got this one with...something inside. So I took my microscope and took some photos (don't remember the magnification but i think 80-100x) and...still didn't know what it could be! Help please? Age of the amber: 49 mya (Middle Eocene) Origin: Lithuania (sorry for eventual bad photos, my microscope isn't that good)

    ID Baltic Amber Insect Inclusion?

    Hello, I recently purchased this piece of Baltic amber with an insect inclusion. Don't have it in hand yet so can't do the more exhaustive tests, but I was wondering if someone could help identify the insect inclusion, and at least visually assess if it seems legit? Regarding ID I'm thinking it might be a Caddisfly, as it is quite large (~1cm) and seems to have 2 pairs of hairy wings and very long antennae. Regarding authenticity I don't see any visual red flags, and it also doesn't seem to be an inclusion fabricated in real amber as afaik there would be faint swirls ar
  4. Hey guys, this is my first post to this forum and I’m excited to be here. I am an amateur but I have come a long way when it comes to fossil hunting and I have a pretty large collection of quality fossils. I found this piece in the Appalachian coal fields of Eastern Kentucky, mixed in with other fossils from the Pennsylvanian. To me it appears to be some sort of invertebrate fossil but it is preserved in a type of sandstone and as far as I could guess I would imagine that an earthworm-like specimen would be too delicate to be preserved to this detail. It is definitely weathered by the rain and

    Petrified wood find in Houston

    Just joined and this is my first post. I’m hoping to learn more about this find in northwest Houston. It was on a site with imported fill material, so it could have come from a different area nearby and at a different depth. It was encased in white/light gray clay with many 1-2mm round river pebbles embedded in the “bark”. I’m interested to know mostly if the outer section being different than the inner section is a normal formation, and additional information will be appreciated. Thanks.
  6. I am considering buying this fossil is it real & what is it? the seller said it was Balteurypterus tetragonopthalmus but i cant find anything called that. any ideas of what it actually is?

    Hi all. Wanted to post this tooth I got a while back for opinions. Seems quite a bit chunkier than the other nano's I have so figured it never hurts to verify. Tried following @Troodon's great guide but still new to this. Tip is cracked off so hard to tell exactly how big it was. Looking at the bottom view you can see a slight pinch on one side forming but you can't feel one on the other side when touching it. Feels flat. Hell Creek Garfield County, MT CBL 18.44 CBW 10.53 CH 33.19 (based on broken tip length) CH/CBL Ratio 1.79 Den

  10. These fossils were in a bag of shark teeth from morroco What are they, they don't look like any kind of shark tooth I've seen before The white pieces don't look like broken root to me Thanks

    Help identifiying these fossils

    Hi everyone! Recently I purchased some Aurora, North Carolina micro matrix from the Aurora, North Carolina Fossil Museum. I am having trouble Identifying the shark teeth because they are posteriors and it is not very easy to find good pics of posterior shark teeth. The last tooth is not a shark tooth but not sure if it is a dolphin or if it is a whale tooth? And I am not sure if the second to last tooth is a shark tooth or if it is a fish tooth? Thanks in advance! -@fossilhunter21

    What is this ammonite piece?

    Anyone know what species of ammonite this is? I see those suture patterns so it does seem like some sort of ammonite. Seems to be about 2 in long. Since it has an open coil is it a possible heteromorph (or just a broken homomorph)?
  15. Sorry for another post, hopefully last authenticity check Got some sort of leaf fossil and an ammonite of some kind Are they real, and could I have an ID and age if they are
  16. Trilobite, is it real and an ID I can't see much eye detail but I do not see any air bubbles or anything It's small about 0.75 inches

    Waco Pit ID Help

    Although the primary draw of the Waco Research Pit (Cretaceous; Del Rio Formation) is its tiny micromorph ammonites, I have also found a number of other fauna at the site, including these bivalves. These are the last fossils from the Waco Pit that I have not yet been able to identify. I was hoping that someone with more familiarity with the site or bivalves of the Texas Cretaceous might know what they are. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1- ??? #2- Striarca washitensis? #3- ??? #4- ???

    OK Pennsylvanian Goniatite

    I found this goniatite at an exposure of the Sausbee Formation (Early Pennsylvanian; Morrowian) in Oklahoma. I have tried in vain to identify it to even a genus level. I was wondering if anyone knew what this goniatite is. The only identifying mark that I could see on the fossil was a single band on the underside, as seen in the third photo. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
  20. Hello can anyone give an id on this trilobite . And is it real and how much restauration it has got .thanks

    Interesting find in Southwest NJ

    So I have decided to do some exploration digs in my area (Salem County) just because there isn’t much mentioned for spots and it’s not more than 1 hour in any direction for me to search. Found an area with a little help from some other individuals and the ROCKD app that put me on the Vincentown formation and had a slight success. Mostly found coral but did come up with this. Possible spike or claw? It is roughly 1 and 1/2” long. Just trying to see what it could be as not much is found in my area as of late.

    What is this shell?

    Seller lists this as a pyritized nautilus/cephalopod from the devonian, but no other info. Any idea what this could be? A belemnite phragmocone maybe? Thanks.

    Dino gembone ID?

    Hello, Could I get some help identifying this gembone piece? Seller listed it as "gembone dino" with no other info. Dimensions are roughly 5cm cross section, 7cm long. I realize this may be difficult to ID exactly, so perhaps even just an assessment of authenticity as a dinosaur gembone would be helpful. Thanks!

    Moroccan shark tooth with cusps ID

    This fossil shark tooth is from a bulk fossil shark tooth purchase. It was probably the most complete tooth and I took note of it because of it's cusps. It is Late Cretaceous to Eocene in age from the Oulad Abdoun Basin, Morocco.

    Texas Permian Brachiopods ID Help

    Over the weekend I joined the Dallas Paleo Society on a field trip to two road cuts near Cisco exposing the Early Permian Camp Colorado Limestone and Watts Creek Shale. The Camp Colorado Limestone had many more brachiopods and I have been able to identify everything to a genus level except for these two. Does anyone know what these are? I initially thought that the second was Derbyia sp. but it seems a little different than the other chunks of Derbyia I found. Perhaps it is a juvenile Derbyia? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1 #2
