  1. Hi, after almost 2 years I have reworked my Archaeopteryx skeleton model also shown on this board: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/110891-archaeopteryx-skeleton-model/ On the first version, I wasn't happy with the stability and the external metal support. Also, the dynamic pose made it large and difficult to find space for. So I decided to give the new version a more relaxed, upright posture and to run an iron rod through the spine instead of below it. I also reworked some details and found that the skull was scaled a bit too large compared to most specimen
  2. A priceless fossil destroyed in WWII has resurfaced in an unusual way Ashley Strickland, November 4, 2022 "The original fossil was highly significant in being the very first complete skeleton of any prehistoric reptile fossil ever found at the time,..." The open access paper is: Lomax, D.R. and Massare, J.A., 2022. Rediscovery of two casts of the historically important ‘Proteo-saurus’, the first complete ichthyosaur skeleton.

  3. Hi My wife and I have just returned from a relaxing week on the Yorkshire coast, walking and looking for ammonites. We didn’t find much but what we did find were pretty rare. First some scenic pics: The last is Whitby Abbey which features in Dracula. First ammonite, an Asteroceras multi block. Second, a androgynoceras multi block Third Paltechioceras (extremely rare and needs glueing back together and prepping)
  4. Hi everyone! Last week we went on a weekend trip with our fossil club the BVP to go on a fossil hunt to the jurassic clay cliffs "Falaises de Vaches Noires" between Houlgate & Villers-Sur-Mer in Normandy, France. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/68 The famous cliffs of Vaches Noires date back to the Jurassic period, and span both the Callovian & Oxfordian stages (166 - 157 mya) and the Cretaceous period spanning the Cenomanian (100 - 94 mya). Back in the jurassic this area was a rich marine environment and fossils that can be found here are man

    Big shell?

    Hi Forum, I'm asking you help to identify this speciment. Is it a big shell? or I am confusing a big portion of an ammonite? the piece is about 15cm. It was collected in the Omhden quarry (DE, next to the famous Holzmaden quarry) in the pictures you can find positive and negative plates Thanks a lot Paolo

The latest Chronostratigraphic Chart from the ICS. https://stratigraphy.org/news/143 Numeric Ages altered: 2022/10 - Jurassic: numeric ages of all stages updated to comply to GTS2020 - by request of SCJS (Angela Coe) Tithonian 149.2 +/- 0.7 Ma (was: 152.1 +/- 0.9 Ma ) Kimmeridgian 154.8 +/- 0.8 Ma (was: 157.3 +/- 1.0 Ma ) Oxfordian 161.5 +/- 1.0 Ma (was: 163.5 +/- 1.0 Ma ) Callovian 165.3 +/-1.1 Ma (was: 166.1 +/- 1.2 Ma ) Bathonian 168.2 +/- 1.2 Ma (was: 168.3 +/- 1.3 Ma ) Bajocian 170.9 +/- 0.8 Ma (was: 170.3 +/- 1.4 Ma ) Aalenia
  7. L.S., I recently purchased an old collection of plant fossils. The boxes also contained an odd couple of non-plants, which I would like to offer up for trade. Ideally, I would like to get some plant fossils in return. Photos below, with scale in centimetres at bottom. Disclaimer: The information below is "as received". I cannot guarantee provenance/identifications are 100% correct since these pieces come from an old collection, plus marine beasties are not really my cup of tea... Kind regards, Tim Specimen A: Large plate with several ammonites

    Looking for info on Temnodontosaurus eurycephalus

    Probably one of the most enigmatic species of Temnodontosaurus is Temnodontosaurus eurycephalus, owing to only one skull ever having been found. This particular species is often described as a snub-nosed temnodontosaur with massive teeth and heavy jaw muscles that it probably used to hunt other ichthyosaurs (and other marine reptiles). Its holotype is currently held by the Natural History Museum in London, with the below being some images of it, taken off of Wikipedia: My interest with it, at present, lies with its dentition, with the morphology of its teeth. For I've
  9. Taxonomy from Schweigert et al. 1998. Description by Schweigert et al. 1998, p. 28 (translated from German by oilshale):"Muensteria vermicularis Sternberg alias Epitrachys rugosus (Eulers) is an elongated, gradually widening structure with a rough, granular surface. Usually it is not strictly straight but slightly curved. Particularly characteristic is a fine striation or wrinkling running transverse to the longitudinal axis. This striation gradually disappears on the broader end, so that it is only dimly discernible in the rock, if at all." References: Sternberg, K. M. (1833): Versuch e

    ammonites.fr shuts down

    One of the really best websites about cretaceous and jurassic ammonites has been removed from the net, www.ammonites.fr This was always an inspiration to compare own finds and determine them. I do not really know why, have heard some stories but did not talk to Herve Chatelier, the owner And, when you look with the waybackmachine it is not possible to open former versions... I will miss the website
