  5. Another new Strophodus-related paper is out, if anyone's aware: Sharma, A., and Singh, S., 2021. A small assemblage of marine hybodont sharks from the Bathonian of the Jaisalmer Basin, India. Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie - Abhandlungen 301 (3): 317–333. doi:10.1127/njgpa/2021/1014. This year's publication of a paper describing a new Asteracanthus specimen showed that the synonymy of Strophodus with Asteracanthus was incorrect and arbitrary, and it's a coincidence that Strophodus indicus is of the same age (Bathonian) as the Strophodus type species, S. i

    India's youngest paleontologist

    This Chennai girl is India's youngest paleontologist and she's collected 136 fossils in four years. We speak to Aswatha Biju, who embraced paleontology at the age of 10. Today, she delivers lectures on the subject to her peers and adults too Bidushi Das, Edex Live, India 12-Yo Chennai Girl With 79 Fossil Specimens Is India’s Youngest Palaeontologist! What started as a fascination for Aswatha Biju after seeing a picture of an ammonite fossil in encyclopedia soon turned into a passion that had no plans of dying done. The Better India. Yours,
  7. I found many fossils recently while on a vacation. These were found on a beach in coastal Maharashtra, India. The beach was also full of banded agates and quartz. There are many more, but I didn't want to present too many and get confused. I think the red and white tubes and chips are agatized coral. The flat bigger pieces look like poor quality petoskey stones and the brown ring and tube looks line fossilized crinoid stem segments in mudstone. But I can be completely wrong about these. Please help me ID these finds 20210402_123443.heic 20210402_124
  8. A new paper is out online: Nesbitt, S. J.; Stocker, M. R.; Chatterjee, S.; Horner, J. R., & Goodwin, M. B., 2021. A remarkable group of thick‐headed Triassic Period archosauromorphs with a wide, possibly Pangean distribution. Journal of Anatomy In press. doi:10.1111/joa.13414. I remember the "Triassic pachycephalosaur" from India that was discussed at a number of vertebrate paleontology symposia by Sankar Chatterjee, but the description of this form as Kranosaura reinforces my opinion about the "Triassic pachycephalosaur" being a Triopticus relative. The paper also

    Possible osteoderm

    Hi, recovered these from conglomerate horizon in jurassic strata near jaisalmer, Rajasthan, India. My guess is they are osteoderm of some sort. Looking for some more educated opinions.

    Help IDing (coral?)

    Hello, This was found in Ariyalur, India, the deposits are Cretaceous age marine sedimentary deposits. The specimen itself appears to be some sort of branching coral, but I am unable to find any suitable references of collected specimens that look like this. It was found alongside ammonites, sea urchin fossils etc. I am a little puzzled by how "neat" it looks. I'm not looking for a specific identification necessarily, but a general pointer in the right direction would be appreciated. The piece is roughly 6 inches long/ 3-4 inches deep and has lots of interlo
  12. I found these Jurassic fossils in the Jaisalmer Basin, Thar Desert, India. Belemnites (left), brachiopods of various sizes (center), ammonite fragments (top) & 3 small whole ammonites (lower right). Quarter coin shows scale.
  13. I have a question, have any dinosaurs been found in Kothapalli, Maharashtra, India?
  14. Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I am taking time during the lock down to have a declutter and I came across this small ammonite in two halves I purchased in India some years ago. I have no clue about its authenticity but I seem to remember the seller telling me it came from a riverbed in Nepal. Let me know what you think, I believe it is a lovely little object - perhaps a paperweight if nothing else! It was bought in a not particularly touristic town in Karnataka state, in a shop selling religious artefacts - take from that what you will.
  15. Greetings kind people, Hope you are having a lovely day today! After weeks of research I decided to purchase my first set of fossils. But I'm worried about the rules and regulations here. Is it illegal to buy and import fossils here? Also I remember someone telling me importing antiques and minerals to India are extremely costly. All I need to know is, if someone from India has purchased from an international website and shipped it to India. Did it arrive safe? Was it super expensive to import? Did you have to face any legal penalties?

    Anyone have any idea what this wood is

    I recently purchase this from a seller who claimed it was fossil wood from India, have you guys heard of Indian fossil wood and it more looks like some type of palm, maybe calamities, but I’m not really sure thanks for looking note how mineralised it is I don’t know what it is though as it is very heavy

  19. Have anyone ever brought fossils into or out of India? I am headed there for a few days to give paleontology lessons, and I'll be using my own ammonites, spino teeth, dino bones etc as part of the lessons. Google search didn't show anything about fossils being illegal to be brought in/out, but thought I should still check here. I've emailed their customs already but they are slow to respond. I am guessing that they too are scratching their heads as they've never had anyone ask such a question. That, or they are unwilling to commit an answer.
  20. Hey guys, Found a rock on the beach and it has a bulge, it feels like something is there inside, could it be a fossil?

    Found a tooth on the beach

    I found a tooth on the beach, but I am unable to identify the animal to which it belonged to. It has a width of about 1.5inches, so it is fairly large. Anyone who tries to identify it, your help will be much appreciated.

    Indian Vertebrate Paleontology

    I noticed that in the wide world of vertebrate paleontology, not a lot of attention is given to India, despite some rather good Mesozoic (notably Triassic) vertebrate sites. I thought it would be nice to share this with the other TFF members, to promote a bit the advances in Indian vertebrate paleo: https://www.researchgate.net/project/Mesozoic-Microvertebrates Some of the papers have the full text available. What do you people think? -Christian
  23. Any chance someone knows what these are? They are most probably Holocene-aged (last 12,000 years). They come from a dry playa lake setting (inland) in India - the Thar Desert. Size is about 1mm wide, and 1.5+mm long... there is a funny raised hollow insert. Would love to get some tips!
