    Vectis formation fossils

    Hi guys, got some fossils from yaverland and whale chine, IOW they are berriasian vectis formation, and I was wondering if you could help me identify them 1. croc or ichthyosaur tooth? 2. hybodont spine, is a species I’d possible? 3. fish spine? 4. pterosaur tooth
  2. I picked up this pair of flattened cones from the wealden clay at Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, uk last weekend. I couln’t find a similar hexagonal pattern from photos online or in the books I have on the area. Given the size and shape (roughly 3cm), I was wondering if they may be araucarian? The area is barremian. It’s also in very soft clay, so I’m currently trying to dry it slowly wrapped in damp tissue before adding paraloid with acetone to stabilise it. If a better method is advisable, I would really appreciate any advise. Thanks in adva
  3. Just published a paper that describe a new dromaeosaurid, Vectiraptor greeni from the Barremian Wessex Formation of the Isle of Wight. Very cool Paper is paywalled but looks like its just vertebrae and partial sacrum that were discovered. Posted it to get in on record since we have many collectors that have material from this locality. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667121003712
  4. Hi guys, I was considering purchasing the attached vertebra as a Christmas gift, however, I'm aware that identifying partial material down to the genus level can be tricky. I would really appreciate any opinions as to the identity of this vert, it's labelled as Baryonyx sp. indent and measures 8.9x10x10 cm collected from the Wessex Formation, Isle of Wight, England. From my own reading around on the forum and online (see attached figure from https://www.researchgate.net/publication/285762094_A_new_specimen_of_the_theropod_dinosaur_Baryonyx_from_the_early_Cretaceous_of_Portugal
  5. Hi, Found in the shingle in the mid tidal part of Woodside beach (Just West of Wooton Creek/Fishbourne, see arrow on map image). Not your typical Isle of Wight fossil hunting location but happened to be killing time before the ferry and always have my eyes down. Geology is Bembridge Limestone formation and Bembridge Marls. I remember there was a wave cut bed of soft grey clay/mud exposed a few meters away to the east which extended north into the sea (Trying to stop kids getting it all over their shoes...). Any help identifying this would be appreciated it has a quite distin
  6. An overlooked fossil turned out to be a new herbivorous dinosaur with an oddly shaped nose Brighstoneus simmondsi has a big lump around the nostrils, like a chunky alligator. By Philip Kieffer, Popular Science, November 10, 2021 The open access paper is: McDonald, A.T., Barrett, P.M. and Chapman, S.D., 2010. A new basal iguanodont (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) from the Wealden (Lower Cretaceous) of England. Zootaxa, 2569(1), pp.1-43. Researchgate PDF Yours, Paul H.
  7. Last month my boyfriend and I went on our first ever trip to the Isle of Wight. We stayed for four full days and managed to squeeze in a fossil trip each day. On the first day we met up with one of my friends who was staying on the island with her boyfriend who is an 'islander'. We decided to visit the popular Compton Bay, an interesting and well known cretaceous site famous for dinosaur remains. When we arrived the tide was quite high and I didn't realise just how long it takes to go down (several hours, for future reference), but we were able to get onto the beach and walk a some

    Compton Bay Bony Bits Pebble

    Hello, I picked this pebble up from the beach at Compton Bay on the Isle of Wight, this area is Lower Cretaceous. The pebble looks like it’s full of bony bits, but I have no idea what they might be from and it might prove too difficult to tell. If anyone has some insight I’d be delighted to hear it. Scale accidentally in inches rather than cm in this photo Close up photos taken with microscope attachment to my phone.
  9. Hi everyone, I’ve just returned from a trip to Rocken End, Isle of Wight with some Cretaceous chalk ammonites in hand. This chalk is incredibly delicate to the point where handling is almost scary. I have the smaller things soaking in water to desalinate but I’m worried about these two items. The whole ammonite is the nicest and biggest we found (with a little ammo that already looks cracked…) and so delicate I’m worried that soaking it will destroy it? The larger block contains at least one nice ammonite and potentially more, I don’t know whether to prep it

    Fossil brachiopods, shanklin greensand

    Hi guys, found these brachiopods in the aptian old walpen chine member of the ferruginous sands of the lower greensand at shanklin, Isle of Wight, I was wondering if you could help me ID them if anyone can get a decent number of them, they will receive a few as a reward 1. rhyonachellid of some sort 2. a seperate species or just squashed ? 3. slightly more circular 4. digonella? 5. nice preservation on this lamellibrach! 6. more circular again! thanks for your help

    Interesting shape. What is it?

    Found this on beach. Was blacker when wet. The knobbly bit drew my eye. Once home and cleaned I could see there is a smoother black core running through it. Is this some sort of bone? Any ideas anyone? Thanks

    Some Isle of Wight fossils

    Hi guys, I have a few bits and bobs I would really appreciate help with identifying, let me know if you need better photos of anything thanks for your help lets start with some Oligocene stuff from Yarmouth, 1. Some kind of skull element, what from though? 2. This is very weird, it does remind me of a tiny croc scute though 3. Some kind of ankle bone? and some from the lower greensand of whale chine, Isle of Wight, it is a coral, but not the usual holycites elegans, a book I read mentions a very rare mushroom shaped coral, like this ma

    Wealden vertebra

    Hello Can anyone help me ID this vert please? It was found in Brook Bay, Isle of Wight. Any ideas on what it might have come from would be much appreciated.

    Hi, is it a tooth or is it flint?!

    Hi all, I run a rock and fossil shop in the UK and I had a customer come in and tell me about finding a tooth on holiday in the Isle of Wight in the 1970's he has now emailed me a few pictures over, I was wondering if anyone could help me to help him? I am inclined to think it is flint but I don't want to say that yet as he has fond memories of finding it and its not nice to squash them. So any pointers would be great. He found it in Alum bay

    North Isle of Wight bone

    I found this a while back near Nodes Point (North Wight). It's hard like glass on the outside so quite sure it's fossilised. It's got an interesting curve to it. Someone suggested it could be turtle and as it happens, I've found turtle shell nearby on a different occasion, but very similar colour. Any ideas?

    Iguanodon vert

    Hello, Finally found a decent Iggy vert. But if someone can give it a quick glance, that would be super. It matches other Iguanodon verts I've seen sold--but always the chance those sellers are mistaken. It is from Brook Bay. 11cm wide, 13 cm high, 8 cm long. Hope this checks out as Iguanodontid. But it also looks a bit like some plesiosaur verts I've seen. Thanks
  17. Hi, I found this reptile vertebra awhile ago at Yaverland on the isle of Wight, any idea what kind of reptile it is from?

    Fossil ID please

    Hello, I found this on Brighstone beach today. Is it anything? It looks like bones to me and they show on both sides. But I'm probably wrong! I think it's iron stone. Thanking you in advance.

    Is this a fossil please?

    Hello, I found this on the beach at Brighstone, Isle of Wight, UK. It's renowned for fossil finds. I often find interesting stones and would love to know what they are.
  20. I have here a dinosaur bone from Isle of Wight, England. It's from the Wessex Formation, Cretaceous in age. It's around 1.5" x 1.5" How much credibility is there to the claim that this is a dinosaur vertebra? And if that's what it is, could be be narrowed down? Thank you, Bellamy

    Caudal vertebra or phalanx?

    Collected at Bouldnor on the Isle of Wight, and is about 33 million years old (Bouldnor Formation). This site produces a variety of mammals, turtles, crocodilians, birds, lizards, fish and amphibians. I am torn between labelling this a small caudal vertebra or phalanx. One end is unfortunately broken while the other is concave, with a rounded socket-like face to it. Measures 17mm long.

    Bird Pelvis Fragment?

    After having another look at one of my bone fragments from the Bouldnor Formation (Isle of Wight, UK), the closest match i have been able to find is a bird acetabulum, as circled in the diagram below. But i am not an expert on avian anatomy. Can anyone else offer any insight? @Auspex Specimen is approx. 33 million years old. The Bouldnor Formation on the Isle of Wight produces a wide variety of mammals, turtles, crocodilians, birds, fish, lizards and amphibians. Measures 29 mm at its longest. The 'socket' which i think may be the acetabulum is 12.5mm in diameter.

    Dynasaur egg?

    Isle of Wight is these fossil egg?
  24. I was hoping someone could give some suggestions what this could be. I found it at Hanover point, Compton/brook last week. Wealden Cretaceous. Terrestrial. It had clearly been in the water for a long time and was covered in all sorts of sea life which has now mostly been removed. initially I thought it could be a large piece of dinosaur bone, but now it’s been cleaned I can’t figure out what it is. Any ideas what it could be?

    Isle of Wight Lizard Vertebra?

    This was found today in the shingle at Fort Victoria on the Isle of Wight and the geology is Solent Group so Late Eocene to Early Oligocene. I am aware that lizard jaws have been found here as well as snake vertebrae but this does not look like snake to me so wondered if it might be lizard? Any help to identify would be very much appreciated. Cheers Martyn
