  1. Wonder if I can please get an ID on 2 items from the Potomac Group of Maryland. First item is a small item the size of a nickel. Second my imagination wants me to think it’s part of a foot print, which is the more common find from this formation. thanks so much for all insight, Matt

    Reliable sources for Fossil ID

    Hey everyone, More experienced hunters than me, what sources do you use for general knowledge and IDing your finds? I have a brachiopod from the order Spiriferida but I can't find anything online to go any more in depth than that. Is there a specific book or website that I should check out?

    Trilobite Mortality Plate ID

    Hi everyone! I purchased this trilobite mortality plate a few months ago, but I haven't gotten the chance to get an ID yet. All the info I have on it is that it was collected near Tafraoute, Morocco and is from an Ordovician formation. (not sure which one) They are all about an inch and unfortunately most of the heads are not preserved great. I can provide bette r pictures if needed. Thanks!

    Found in Texas

    Please identify.

    Trilobite ID

    I am currently at an auction right now, and I was wondering if anybody can identify this little trilobite? It looks odd to me and I don’t recall seeing one like this before, but I do not know much about trilobites. Any help would be appreciated. If it’s something nice, I might bid on it, it comes with other items as well it’s in the lot.
  8. Found this today at Holden beach. Im not sure what it is but it reminds me of a turtle carapace. It looks like bone to me because of the honeycombing. Please help me ID this.

    Unusual Fin spine ID

    Hello everyone , I have been trying to identify this fossil for a while now, nobody seems to know. This is a fin spine from the upper cretaceous (campanian) of israel. Recovered from phosphorite rich marine deposits. It reminds me of hybodontiformes, but its different as it lacks their characteristic serrations, and by that time period they should have gone extinct in the ocean. Any help would be incredible!!
  10. I had the fortune of collecting at LaFarge quarry back over a decade ago. I didn't find a lot, but took home a 5 gallon bucket of material at the recommendation of another digger to go through for microfossils. Fast forward tp this weekend and I found the bucket of material. It has been drying for this long and is easy to break up. I am just getting started in the material and found a really neat tooth. At first it looked like a Great White tooth to me, but the root doesn't look right. I put under my microscope and found that the tooth appears more conical. The tooth is approximately 3mm in lo
  11. It is around 4 inches and it was advertised as an angustiden tooth. I was wondering if they were correct

    What is it?

    Hello! Help please to identify it. What is it? Max. length 3 mm. Age: Early Eocene. West of Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  13. I've found this one yesterday in the Mishash formation (Campanian-maastrichtian). A friend suggested that its a shark vertebra but I never seen one in that shape. Any help would be great. Thanks. Also, I'll put a picture with scale soon. VID_20221117_162227.mp4
  14. This was found with some shells and stone pushed up on a sand bar by hurricane Nicole. Here are some photos of the object. Looks like maybe an atlas vert, but I don't know. It is a little asymmetrical left to right but the photos probably exaggerates that.
  15. Hey there Fossil Forum. One of my friends found an interesting specimen showing a well preserved (lamellar?) microstructure inside the Beauharnois Fmt limestone (Joliette area, Québec). Beauharnois Fmt is Ordovician. To me, this could very well be some kind of colonial animal (like a bryozoan or graptolith), but I have never seen a similar one where I live so far. The dual branch architecture makes me think of a graptolith, while the somewhat "lamellar" microstructure reminds me of a bryozoan. However, I would not be surprised if it was something entirely different. Any guess? Plea

    Unknown find, any help welcome.

    I'm a complete amateur looking for a little help with something I have not seen before. Found on North Yorkshire coast UK in an area known for ammonite specimens. I have no idea what this is, a shell, a tooth? The ribbed texture seems to wrap around the edge and there are quite a number of areas that have the gold sheen on them.
  17. A few tips for getting better ID's. First, make the object you are trying to get an ID for be the central object of the photo. Not your hand. Put the object on a neutral colored background and photograph it as close up as possible. Then crop your pictures. Using your hand for scale is no good, we don't know how big your hand is. Make sure the photo is well lit and focused. Second, use a scale rule (preferably metric; millimeters and centimeters) we have members from all over the world. The U.S. is about the only country that does not use the metric system Coins for scal
  18. I got some shark teeth and ammonite a couple month ago help me identify it please Shark teeth is from northern part of africa ammonite have no idea about it

    Possible brachiopod or something else?

    Hey everyone, As you can see here I have a piece of shale I broke in half, which revealed this brachiopod like shape. At first I thought it was dust but what's left here can't be brushed away any more. Looks to me like it's too symmetrical to be a natural formation, but I could use some input at to whether it's a fossil or not, thanks!

    Maybe fish?

    I found this rock with this odd shapes in them. They all mostly seem to have similar shaping and I suspect they may be early Ordovician fish. Any thoughts?

    Found it in a rock bed while pulling weeds today and have no skill of ID’ing this, it would be epic if y’all would help me out to figure out what it is,

    Is this a fossilized mollusk? Nut?
  24. This unknown partial jaw and molars came from a box of rocks at a garage sale in Minnesota. Scale is metric. My SWAG is a smaller sized Oreodont?
