  1. G'day everyone, maybe someone can help me with the identification of a fossil. Recently I was on vacation in France and had the opportunity to visit the famous Falaises des Vaches Noires at Villers-sur-Mer (Calvados, Normandy). While searching the beach at low tide I found many fossils of invertebrates, but at the end of it a loose bone, too, on the foreshore. So it is most likely from the Marnes de Dives formation (Callovian), but I cannot say for sure, of course (the Marnes de Villers is overlying). As far as I know vertebrate fossils from there are represented by marine rept
  2. Hi everyone, My friend bough some of Daohugou fossils for his museum and he asking to help for the ID. The only information that we got these fossils came from Nei Mongols, China. So do you have any idea about these fossil pls help us. Thanks for reading 1.

    Paleo or geo?

    Hello everybody. Yesterday i found this in the layers of hard clay, where fossils i never met before. Above this clays there are sandstones from jurassic, so i decided that this Something are jurassic too. So i need your help with id. Thnx alot.
  7. Upon doing some research on exposures near Great Falls, and from a tip I received from a fellow member of my local prospector's group, I found an exposure just outside of Belt that is somewhat known for its plant fossils. Roadside Geology of Montana has this area of the state marked as early Cretaceous, but the large Jurassic coal seam cutting through the middle of this exposure was apparent as soon as I parked. I scrambled up the loose shale and sandstone to the seam, where I almost immediately began to spot small impressions in the dark-gray shale.
  8. Hovestadt (2018) published a revision of extinct bullhead sharks, erecting three new genera (Procestracion, Palaeoheterodontus, Protoheterodontus) for a number of Mesozoic bullhead sharks from the Jurassic and Late Cretaceous of Europe. However, I have not been able find a full text PDF for this publication, so I wanted to ask if anyone could send me a copy of that publication. Hovestadt, D.C., 2018. Reassessment and revision of the fossil Heterodontidae (Chondrichthyes: Neoselachii) based on tooth morphology of extant taxa. Palaeontos. 30: 1–73.
  9. Hey there! I've been wanting to go to the Hutton Sandstone Formation, Walloon Coal Measures to search for Jurassic aged fossils, specifically in search for dinosaurs such as Rhoetosaurus. The only problem is I can't seem to find anything online on how to get there, and where exactly the formation is. Can I get some help?
  10. On a couple of recent trips to the Whitby coast my daughter and I collected quite a few chunks of a large septarian nodule (or perhaps more than one nodule, though everything was collected in a small area) containing bones. Most of the pieces we found just contain ribs, but one piece contains a couple of larger bones. I’ve had a go at prepping the two best bits, is anyone able to suggest what the bones might have belonged to? Thanks for looking FullSizeRender.mov
  11. Since we’ve had a pretty succesful fossiltrip in Southern Germany last year, visiting the Wutach area again for a few days seemed a more than logical choice since we would be passing Germany on our way back up from Italy to Holland for our summer holidays. Sadly a few days before we arrived it became apparant that the weather predictions were very bad. Allthough the first two days were mostly dry, these daily rain showers were just enough to make everything wet and muddy and thus very slippery which isn’t helpfull in these mountains….. Against all odds we still managed
  12. So over the past few days I was visiting Bozeman from Raleigh North Carolina as I was visiting the MSU campus because I've been accepted to start as a freshman in autumn 2021. And I hope you know what I am trying to major in. I mean you know what forum we're on I don't have to spell it out. Anyway, in that time I managed to spend all day visiting the Museum of the Rockies which is considered one of the Mecca halls for paleontology. Our crazy old boi Jack used to be Prof and curator there before... well you know. My home museum, the NC Museum of Natural Sciences are taxo

    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
  14. On saturday I went on my first fossil hunting trip of 2021 with the BVP. Normally we would visit my favorite quarry "the Romontbos quarry" in Eben-Emael which is Maastrichtian in age, but due some complications that trip has been posponed till the end of September. Instead we went to the SETIM quarry in Tontelange in Belgian Luxembourg which was quite cool as it supposedly only the 2nd that this quarry allowed fossil hunting so everyone was quite excited. The rocks we hunted in this quarry are Jurassic in age, mainly Hettangian & Sinemurian. The lower levels of the quarr

    Marine reptiles of Madagascar

    Hi all, I recently became aware that Madagascar appears to have a fully developed and interesting Mesozoic marine reptile record, yet am not particularly able to find any information on them. The only article I have come across is Bardet and Termier, 1990, "Première description de restes de Plésiosaure provenant de Madagascar (gisement de Berere, Campanien)". However, I've been unable to track this article down. As such, I was wondering whether anybody on TFF might have any information on them. Basically, I'm starting from scratch, so would be very interested in the clades of

    Found this today and I’ve never seen anything like it. The tip was poking out of a lump of Cotswolds stone. 2 cm long, 1cm wide, 4 mm thick.
  17. My daughter just picked up this unusual looking nodule on the beach at Lilstock, it split quite easily to expose a tooth shaped item. Could it be a tooth or perhaps some kind of shell? Thanks for looking

    Fish jaw?

    I found these fossils in Hampton Vale (it's quite a well known and fosiliferous site). The site is Oxford clay and jurassic. When doing wet sifting I found lots of these fossils all about 3 or 4mm and I think they are all fish jaws as they r way too small for rodents. This is the first of a few posts I will be doing for id on some fossils from there. Any help is greatly appreciated :). The pictures are of a few I found. Thanks, Harry

    Help! Marine reptile tooth ID

    I need help with the ID of these teeth. From Jurassic Dorset.
  21. I just posted on some fake fossil insects out of China at a show. It seems only fair that I post on an inexpensive nice find I got at the show from the famous Daohugou site in inner Mongolia in China. They are sold as both positive and negative. Check it out. Just remarkable preservation.

    Lyme Regis Pliosaur teeth?

    I have been advised these teeth belong to an early Pliosaur called Rhomaleosaurus. They come from Lyme Regis. What do people here think? Do they seem good?
  23. Here is a weird fossil that was found amongst corals from late jurassic 150Ma. Is it a mollusc shell, a tooth, a bone? Its my first potentially kool fossil ever!!! I am hoping its a fierce sea creature!

    Navajo Sandstone trace fossil?

    I saw this potential fossil in the Jurassic age Navajo Sandstone in Zion National Park in Utah. I'm sorry that there is only one picture with no scale. I was hurrying down the precarious Angel's Landing trail with a long line of people behind me, so I only had time for a quick picture. The feature is probably about ~12 inches long, and I believe that it is situated on the plane of a cross-bed in a dune structure (example of the cross-bedded sandstone is also pictured). This feature might just be some sort of iron precipitation, but it looked so similar to an invertebrate trace fossil that I am
