  1. I am collecting Lebanese fish fossils, but I don’t know what species it is. Does anyone know?
  2. In the last couple of months my son and I have purchased some unprepped Lebanese fossil fishy's. There are four known species of guitarfish from the Lebanese provinces of Hakel and Hajula. Rhinobatos maronita is one of these; this species was fist described in 1866 by Pictet and Humbert. Some purty dang cool stuff but the guy we are buying from does not know how to wrap and send fossils over seas! Our last shipment came in many pieces! Not good. My son is working on him to make it right? Aside from that Im going to do what I can to fix things. First up is one side of what I think is
  3. From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Recent acquisition: Mortality plate of Armigatus brevissimus. There may be another type of fish on here as well. Research is ongoing. Without provenance, unfortunately, there is only guesswork from a similar specimen. Age: 98 Million Years Late Cretaceous (Cenomian) Locality: Hakel, Byblos, Lebanon

    Unknown Fossil Shrimp

    Hi everyone, I just got this Enchelion montium Eel fossil in today, and I was wondering if you could help me ID the shrimp on the back. I'm assuming it's a Carpopenaeus, but I'm not sure. There's also an odd fin-like structure near the shrimp, if anyone has any ideas as to what it belongs to (if it even belongs to anything, that is), I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Hello! Found yesterday, although I'm not even sure what it is. I put rudists in the tag section since someone told me if you don't know what it is, then it's probably a rudist (especially in Lebanon). I would also like to mention that those patterns are not only on one side, rather they're everywhere even on the small pieces that fell off while i separated it from a bigger rock.

  8. Hi everybody! Hope your winter holidays are going well In Italy it's difficult for the lockdown...but we hope for a better 2021! Today i'm kindly asking for help to find an article on Elopiformes fishes that i was not able to find on internet...i started to come closer with this kind of fossil while i was studying the fishes from Lebanon and now i would like to know something more about it...i think this article could be very good!

  9. Crustaceans are a large, diverse group of anthropods which includes the crabs, prawns, lobsters, barnacles and other shelled animals. Perhaps owing to their hard shells and marine lifestyles, crustaceans have a rich and extensive fossil record, extending up to the Cambrian, though they do not appear in abundance until the Carboniferous. They make for attractive and familiar fossils, and are one of my favorite groups to collect. Allow me to present my humble collection.

    Show Us Your Favorite Fishy!

    Well, we've had Brachiopods and Trilobites, so I figured let's give fish a try! I am going to start this off with my Enchodus marchesettii from the Hakel Quarry of Lebanon. Not only is this fossil 100% complete with the only restoration done was repairing the matrix itself, but I received this from one of my good friends on none other than my birthday! This is my favorite fossil in my ENTIRE collection! More will come from the Greenriver side of my collection, I just gotta get my camera fixed

    Fish Aspirations!

    One of the rarest and most unique fossils are aspiration pieces! I have been very lucky in acquiring 2 over the course of collecting, neither are incredibly good, but their rarity alone makes them that much more desirable! I would love to see anyone else's fish with eyes bigger than their stomachs!

    Eurypholis boissieri PICTET 1850

    Characteristic for Eurypholis (meaning "broad scale") are the three large scales directly behind the head. Lit.: A. S. Woodward. 1901. Catalogue of Fossil Fishes in the British Museum (Natural History), Part IV 1-636 P. L. Forey, L. Yi, C. Patterson and C. E. Davis. 2003. Fossil fishes from the Cenomanian (Upper Cretaceous) of Namoura, Lebanon. Journal of Systematic Palaeontology 1(4):227-330.
  13. In my collection I have an Enchodus marchesettii, but in doing more research I am unsure about the relationship it has to other Enchodus, and it's spread as there seem to be very very few specimens, and most are mislabeled Eurypholis or Spaniodon. I am just very interested if anyone has any papers on Lebanon fish.
  14. Hi all, I have a shark fossil from Hakel, Lebanon that is unidentified I presume it is of the Scyliorhinus genus. I was hoping someone would be able to tell me what species it is. It measures approximately 13 inches Thank you
  15. Outdated name: "Urenchelys" germanus HAY, 1903 From Wikipedia: "This genus is interesting as comprising the oldest known eels, which differ from all the tertiary and existing eels in still retaining the caudal fin. Teeth small, bluntly conical, and arranged in numerous series. Slender branchiostegal rays not curving round the opercular apparatus. Vertebrae exceeding 100 in number, the hindermost bearing a pair of expanded hypural bones. Pectoral fins present; dorsal fins arising immediately behind the occiput and extending to the caudal fin, which has stouter rays and is very
  16. Hi everyone, I just ordered this beautifull shark fossil from Lebanon, I saw it passing by on the webshop of one of my favorite fossil dealers and it was love at first sight! Just had to get this when I saw it, really love the preservation on it. The shark was found in Hajula, Byblos, Lebanon and is from the Cretaceous, Cenomanian (98 mya). I was only hoping if someone could tell me which species it might belong to. I am pretty sure it's some kind of catshark or carpetshark, but it turns out there are multiple of these in the Lebanon deposits like Pararhinchodon, Scyliorhinus

    cretaceous Bony fish head?

    Not sure what to say about this find other than it found me. Was trecking @+1500 meters the old goat routes in the anti-mount Lebanon range (very narrow and step on 1 side) and at some point, I saw it lying next to a big rock. Any similar fish fossil kind? I was told that many fossils I found in the area are cretacious...nothing confirmed though.
