  1. Found this mineralized bone at Big Brook Nj and on researching it, it looks very similar to photos of both Plesiosaur and Mosasaur vertebrae. About 1-3/4" long. Any help greatly appreciated!
  2. I have another one for Id. If there is one. Pareidolia? Lol Def looks like something to me but I have no idea! Can't find anything like it other than possibly a Trilobite? Also a Centipede Arthropleura? Maybe a stretch but it's the closest thing I can find to it. I found it in Centralia Pa. and was not in the shale, was in the ground. It's about 2" long and the areas are raised and the pattern seems intentional if that makes sense. Thanks for any help!

    4 very strange brachiopods

    Perhaps somebody have seen these very strange shape before?(i saw a lot of brachiopods before but never like those before)the very big problem is I can't say the stage ,the location, the label will be "Known unto God "
  4. Hello, I am new to the forum. I found this on the beach in Delaware USA, last week and found a similar one in the past few years. I don’t have knowledge of fossils, but this looked like one to my inexperienced eye. Any help identifying what it is, is appreciated!
  5. Came across this piece on the internet. While I doubt it's entirely fake. Something is not right with this one, I just don't know what

    Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else
  7. On a recent trip to the Wutach Valley I discovered a pile of fossils on a slope by the side of the road which had obviously been disposed by somebody who didn't want them any more. Among other things was a small piece of matrix chock-a-block full of various gastropod species. They all look somehow familiar to me, but I can't for the life of me figure out where they are from, what stratigraphical formation they belong to or what their names are. Does any one have any suggestions?

    Ecphora Species Help

    I recently found this Ecphora in an exposure of the Late Pliocene Yorktown Formation, Rushmere Member in Virginia. I was really excited to find it. Sadly the final whorl is missing but I will take a 98% complete Ecphora any day. Ward lists Ecphora quadricostata as the only Ecphora from the Yorktown Formation. This may be Ecphora quadricostata but the ribs are not as prominent at the opening so I was not sure. I know that there are many Ecphora experts on here so before I put down the wrong identification I thought I might as well check with others. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    ID: coral, basalt or fossilized plant?

    Please help me ID this columnar, botryoidal (?) burgundy and camouflage fan? Purchased from an estate sale in Tacoma, Wa. Very brittle material, hardness varies 6/7. 5” x 5” 2.5 lbs. thank you!!
  13. Hello everyone and thanks ahead of time for any help you can give me. I've researched this fossil I found in Big Brook NJ extensively and cannot find anything listed like it or close to anything I've seen anyone find. It's about 3/4" and completely cone shaped. Not flat on any side. The lines do not appear to spiral. Any help greatly appreciated!!
  14. 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

    Deep Spring Road ID's?

    So still going thru items from my Deep Spring Road quarry dig 2 years ago. The ruler marks are mm. Below are a few items I'm looking for ideas on. First 2 are bryozones I think, 3rd is ????, it consists of the negative which is the tan imprint on the upper left and the positive which is flipped up to the right.

    I might have one this time!

    Fingers crossed, I think there's a real fossil in this mess! I accidentally chipped the part I think is a fossil, bone or shell maybe, with my tile nippers trying to chip away the bigger rocks in the conglomerate-- the nippers are for sherd crafts ONLY from now on! However, the pattern of lines in the part in question is as it was when I found it in the lower canal along the Delaware river near Pt. Pleasant, PA. My husband, King of Pareidolia, thinks it's a turtle. I'm not going to see things I can't hypothesize on, I'm here instead.
  19. Hello everyone, can you help me identifying this mandible fragment, I'm unsure of what it can be, maybe Raccoon or a mustelid. I'm sure some Florida expert can determine much better than me what this can be

    Fossil Sand Dollar ID

    I have had this piece in my collection and just sitting on a shelf for a very long time. I was wondering if anyone recognizes it and can provide a name, location and age? Thanks
  21. Hello everyone, I'm new to this so I don't have much experience IDing teeth. I found a few shark teeth at Calvert Cliffs in MD and I was easily able to identify most of them by comparing them to some photo guides online, but this one didn't seem to quite match up to any standard examples I could find. It's just over a centimeter, very symmetrical except where a top corner is broken off, and has pretty clear little serrations. Hopefully an easy one for someone who knows more than I do! Thanks!

    Found this in Belgium

    It’s a little bit hard to see but my guess is coral. It has flowery designs with stripes on it

    Odd stone for ID

    Hi helpful people I'm not a fossil hunter but I found a really intriguing looking stone while fishing some time ago. The dug out pattern on one side puts me in mind of seeds in a pod. Pretty sure someone here will know what it is fossil or not. Found in the UK on a gravel pit. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Fossil Tooth (some sort of shark?)

    Not too long ago I got some sort of tooth from a seller at a show. She inherited it from a family member (her mother, if memory serves) and believed it to be a megalodon tooth, but she doesn't specialize in fossils in the slightest, and it doesn't 100% look like the megalodon teeth I've seen before, plus I don't think she did extensive research because if it is indeed a megalodon tooth then I think I bought it for quite the steal. I've bought from her before, and I trust that she's not being maliciously dishonest, but I definitely want a more expert opinion. I'm certainly new to this realm and

    Georgia Cambrian Mystery Trilobite

    When splitting some extra matrix from the Tibbs Bridge Road exposure of the Middle Cambrian Conasauga Formation I came across this trilobite cephalon imprint. It does not seem to match any of the common trilobites found at the site and I could not find a similar example in the various trip reports other members have posted about past visits to the site. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
