  1. Hi everyone! I would like to know your opinions on the following Psittacosaurus mongoliensis specimen. Found in Liaoning, China. Size about 20cm long and ~1kg heavy. I see there's quite a lot of glue/consolidant here. I know some are carved and many are composites but I would like to know your opinions. Is this real or fake? Your input is highly appreciated. Cheers!

    Lycoptera davidi

    From the album: My collection in progress

    Lycoptera davidi Sauvage 1880 Location: Western Liaoning, China Age: 150 Mya (Upper Jurassic) Measurements: matrix 13x6 cm, fish 7,5 cm long Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Subphylum: Vertebrata Superclass: Osteichthyes Class: Actinopterygii Superorder: Osteoglossomorpha Order: Lycopteriformes Family: Lycopteridae
  3. This fossil is from Liaoning, China. It looks very strange, with a very big head and sharp teeth, not sure if it is a dinosaur or mammal. And whether it is genuine or fake. Any idea?
  4. Taxonomy from Fossilworks.com Diagnosis for the genus and species from Shen Yan-bin et al. 1998, p. 3. “ Carapace with shallow smooth ‘optical‘ grooves and smoothly rounded lateral margins extending laterally to third thoracomere, with second thoracomere exposed via a medio-dorsal indentation; pleomeres 1-5 large, well developed and setose, with large, sub-equal, sub-rectangular protopod, ovoid endopod and ovoid, two-segmented exopod; subtriangular telson with pair of short, medial terminal spines; well-developed setose uropods with rectangular protopod, large, ovoid endopod and exopod of

    Dinosaur claw?

    I bought a dinosaur claw from Liaoning. I guess it is a Psittacosaurus claw. Do you have any opinions?
  6. Quetzalcoatlus

    Mecoptera, Bittacidae

    Dear forum, I've visited recently the magnific endless expositions of the Naturistorisches Museum Wien (Vienna natural history museum). Almost all fossils were identified here, but there are some that don't. Usually I don't photograph the latter ones but this one was exciting for me as it belongs to a group of insects (still extant) that I like a lot. The fossil come from Liaoning, China. Size is about the same than modern-day Bittacus. Any suggestion of genus and species, please? Thanks!
  7. Quetzalcoatlus


    Again an insect photographed in Naturistorisches Museum Wien (Vienna natural history museum), only indentified as "Coleoptera" in the tag. This one also comes from Liaoning, China. Notice the short antennae and strong granulation in elytra. By general shape this could be maybe a Buprestidae but it's very tentative. They also reminds me a bit the living Melyris (Melyridae). Size is about 12-15 mm lenght. Any help please? Thanks!
  8. Quetzalcoatlus


    Another unidentified insect photographed at Vienna natural history museum, and also coming from Liaoning. General appareance reminds me a lot of Novaboilus multifurcatus, but the thickness of legs and proportions looks like slightly different and I don't know if there are any similar species. Anyway it must be related and probably it's in the family Prophalangopsidae too. Any insight, please? Thanks!
  9. Here is an insect fossil I got lately. It is from the Liaoning province in China. I'll like to know what kind of insect this is. Thanks.
  10. This Sinrapter is from Liaoning, China. It looks like it has been preserved very well. Any idea if it is a genuine one?
  11. Haven't had time to post here lately, but I carved out a slot so here we go. In April of last year (2019), I had a chance to visit China. When I was in Beijing, one of my goals was to see the feathered dinos. I visited two museums that had them. One was the Geological Museum of China. The other (The Beijing Museum of Natural History) will be the subject of another post. I took hundreds of pictures there, but I can't post them all here. I have selected some of the better ones, focusing on the feathered critters. You'll have to excuse the lighting and quality
  12. This is a brood of psittacosaurus. It measures about 45cm in length for the matrix. It is from Liaoning Province of China. Do you think it is genuine?
  13. Hi all, I have several sauropod teeth from the Yixian Formation of Liaoning that I need help identifying. This is Tooth 1 - White Length: 44 mm Formation: Jianshangou Beds of Yixian Formation Locality: Chaomidianzi, Sihetun, Beipiao, Liaoning Province I believe this is a Dongbeititan dongi tooth as this tooth has the morphology of titanosauriform teeth, and Dongbeititan is the only titanosauriform from that locality as far as I know. The formation is based off the locality of Chaomidianzi (my source was confident of that locality

  15. The specimen below is said to be a Caudipteryx, not sure if it's a C. zoui or C. dongi. Is it a genuine one? Or a very good replica?
  16. From Liaoning if China, Pterodactyl and Caudipteryx, do they look genuine?
  17. This is said to be Jeholosaurus limb from Liaoning of Early Cretaceous Formation. Is it genuine? It seems the limb is incomplete with missing claws?
  18. Hi everyone, I am currently thinking about buying this Psittacosaurus femur, as it would be a nice and a bit of a rarer addition to my dinosaur collection. The piece is said to have been found in the Yixian Formation, Liaoning Province, China and it measures 14,5 cm And while it looks like a genuine and okay bone to me (with perhaps some composite elements like the little protruding part which is typical of Psittacosaurs) I am not really an expert on Chinese dinosaur fossils. The bone looks like the femur on the replica skeleton I own, but I am not 100 % sur

    Ikechosaurus from China?

    Is this specimen an Ikechosaurus? It is from Liaoning, China. And there seems to be two skulls at the anterior part, possibly a dislocated lower jaw and skull?

    Mysterious Skull from Liaoning

    Hi, this skull is from Liaoning, China in Yixian, early Cretaceous. Any idea what it is? Whether it is reptilian or mammalian species?

    Dinosaur tooth from China

    This tooth is from Beipiu, Liaoning. Any idea which dinosaur is it? And how about its condition?
  22. I saw this Psittacosaurus fossil on the Internet fossil owner says this fossil buy from Liaoning Something seems really odd about it is this fossil real? I would truly appreciate any response to my question
  23. Crazyhen

    Primitive mammal?

    This clutch is said to be found in Beipiu of Liaoning, China. It is said to be the primitive mammal of Triconodontidae. You can see the presence of individuals of different sizes. Any idea which species is that?
