The museums journal. 50: 105–107.) As far as I know, four bat genera with a total of 8 species are known from Messel: Palaeochiropteryx tupaiodon and P. spiegeli, Archaeonycteris trigonodon and A. pollex, Trachypteron franzeni, Hassianycteris messelense, H. magna and Hassianycteris? revilliodi.

    Prepped by transfer method (Toombs, Harry & Rixon, A.E. (1950). "The use of plastics in the "transfer method" of preparing fossils". The museums journal. 50: 105–107.) Taxonomy from Fossilworks.org. Since the holotype is apparently lost, a neotype was established by PETERS in 1983. This specimen is a paratype in the publication by PETERS 1983. Mayr 2002, p. 502: "In the original description, WITTICH (1898) considered R. messelensis to be morphologically closest to the painted snipes (Rostratulidae, Charadriiformes), and HOCH (1980) also erroneously redescribed the species as a

  10. Originally described by Schaal 2004 as Eopython fischeri, the snake was transferred to the newly created genus Eoconstrictor by Scanferla and Smith 2020. Taxonomy from Fossilworks.org Emended diagnosis from Scanferla & Smith 2020: "Medium-sized boid snakes, over 2 m in total length, differing from all other snakes in having the following combination of derived features: edentulous premaxilla with bifid vomerine processes; maxilla bearing four labial foramina and 15–18 maxillary teeth; palatine with five teeth and a long maxillary process; 11 pterygoid teeth; dentary with 18–19 te
  11. I have been too busy to get out fossil hunting when I want but there are a few recent times I've been able to get out. I wanted to try and post a small trip report about them. On October 31 I had the opportunity to visit the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Prentiss County, Mississippi. Most people from the area are probably familiar with this old site but I'm a new resident to this part of the South so I wanted to give it a try. It's Late Campanian Demopolis Formation. It was a little cold and rainy but warm enough for someone used to North Dakota. Apparently th

Hello everybody, can you help me with these? #T1: Carcharias sp (?) or Striatolamia Macrota (?) #T2: Otodus Catticus (???) or maybe, Brachycarcharias Lerichei or Hypotodus verticalis (upper lateral) [On the box was written Otodus Catticus, but I don't know if it belongs to Balegem as specie...] #T3: Brachycarcharias Lerichei or Striatolamia Macrota (?) #T4: ???

  17. Hi everyone! Today is received a bunch of unidentified fossil shark teeth found in a now closed sand quarry in Lede Sand, Lede Formation, Balegem, Oosterzele, Belgium (Eocene, Lutetian, 44 mya). I was hoping some of you might help me out with confirming the ID's of the teeth. I have some idea's what the ID might be, but I am not entirely sure about most. Tooth 1 & 2: Definiatly Sandtiger teeth with fine stiations on the crown. That makes me believe that these are probably Striatolamia macrota Tooth 3: Same goes for this one, I also be
  18. Generally, the genus is assigned to the family Amphilemuridae, which according to some researchers is more closely related to today's hedgehogs (Erinaceidae). According to other studies, a closer relationship to the elephant shrews (family Macroscelididae) is also considered for the family. Taxonomy according to Fossilworks. Diagnosis for Pholidocercus hassiacus von Königswald & Storch 1983 (translated from German by oilshale): “A stout, ground-dwelling animal of a good 35 cm total length (head trunk just under 20 cm, tail a good 15 cm).

A few days ago I got to go fossil hunting for the first time in monthswhile it wasn’t the most productive as the beds were covered by sand and not much erosion had taken place but I found enough in some micro matrix I bought home to warrant a trip report The geology of bracklesham bay To the left, the yellow is wittering fm.

    Modern cuttlefish jaw?

    Hi guys, found this a while ago, I assume it is modern as it seems to be too soft to be mineralised but thought it was pretty cool anyway, found in bracklesham bay, it’s definitely some sort of cephalopod jaw so cuttlefish may be the only option
  23. Hi everyone! A couple of weeks ago I aqcuired some microfossil samples, one of which was a sample from the Lede Zand, Lede Formation, Oosterzele, Belgium (Eocene, Lutetian, 44 mya). The sample is very rich in Foraminifera & shell fragments, but I also managed to find a tiny shark tooth. While I already searched at belgiansharkteeth.be I can't seem to find a match, perhaps due to it being so small. So I was wondering if anyone here might be able to help me out, I would be very gratefull. Thank you in advance!

    French lutetian fossils

    Hi guys these teeth are from an old, closed location I’m be in France and I couldn’t find any description of the fauna, they are lutetian, so I have based my ids of some English localities I’m more familiar with 1. I think some type of parotodus? 2.galeocerdo latidens? 3. isurolamna inflata or brachycarcharias lerichei?
