    First fossil hunt at Lyme Regis

    Hi all, We are newbies to fossil hunting but my 2 year old & I found some interesting finds today at Lyme Regis. Very excited to find some pyrite ammonites! But not sure what these others might be? The ? Tooth is 1 inch long The sphere is 2 inch The ? bone is 4 inch Also the last two photos are of a tripple ammonite, but what would the best method be for etching it out to see all three together? Any advice greatly appreciated. : ) Thank you Hen

    Belemnites

    Hi guys, I’ve got these 2 belemnites from the sinemurian of Lyme Regis and I was wondering whether it would be possible to put a name on them, thanks 1. 2.

    Is this anything of interest?

    Hi, everyone. Whilst scouring loose stones on Lyme beach this took my interest yesterday (20/04/22) aside from bits of ammonites, etc. I thought it resembled a tooth, so kept it as it seemed a bit too perfect to be random rock. Am I completely wrong and is it worth digging deeper into it? Many thanks for any advice offered.
  4. Hello, I went on a trip to Lyme Regis, U.K. last week and came back with some lovely pyrite ammonites and a small ichthyosaurs vertebrae. However we also found this. I’m not sure it’s a full pyrite piece (6cmx6cm) as there is an impression of an ammonite however there are these pyrite cone shapes. Are these just Echinoids Or have I got really lucky with some shark teeth? (very unlikely I know!). I only came across this last one via the National History Museum fossil app which has a picture of a Hybodus delabechei teeth and it looks very similar from a top down view on to the tooth
  5. HI ! I'm planning a trip to the UK and want to collect the Devon / Jurassic coast area. I've collected extensively in the US but am a newby to this area. I any and all information: lodging or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Chuck
  6. Hello all! My name is Rafa and this is the first time writing in the forum. Instead of posting in the introduction section, I figure it was more entertaining to do it by my first field trip report and finds, in this case to the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. I am sure nothing new to the members of the group as it is a mega famous place, but I had the most amazing weekend taking my first steps into this amazing world and would like to share! About me, I am a Uruguayan living in Munich, Germany since 6-7 years, and with some family in the UK. I am a total beginner

    Not sure if fossil?

    Hello! Indulged my hobby a little this weekend (4-7 Mar) and headed to Lyme Regis for some sunny ammonite hunting. Found this while digging on East Beach there… I’m nowhere near experienced enough to determine if it’s even a fossil at all, but it was such an odd shape and I thought I’d ask! About 1 3/8 inch (3.5cm) across and approx 1 inch (2.5cm) thick. Found 5 March 2022 on East Beach, Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK. See photos below for details. Thank you everyone!
  8. Hi all, A couple of years ago I acquired a lovely pair of plesiosaur propodial bones from Lyme Regis. It was a matched pair of both humerus and femur. Today, when I was looking to make space in my cabinet for a new acquisition I had made, I discovered some odd dust next to the humerus that, on inspection and to my horror turned out to be pyrite bloom! I immediately removed the specimen from the cabinet, checked the other podial and nearby fossils, and used a tooth brush to brush of the most direct traces of pyrite decay. But the question is: what now? How do I ensure the propodial's prese
  9. Hi everyone These two pieces were collected by my boyfriends father and his family about 60 years ago on the Jurassic coast of Charmouth/Lyme Regis. A little while ago he brought them out to show me and said I could keep the ones I liked. I chose these two, but not to keep. My idea was to prep them, reveal the fossils inside and give them to him at Christmas. I used a Dremel with specialised tips and a sewing needle in a pin vice under a microscope. Overall I'm quite happy with how they turned out, not perfect, but I can see my own improvement. The larger s

  11. Hi everyone, I purchased this Lyme Regis specimen a few weeks ago and have been working on it with a pin vice and Dremel (with the proper fossil/rock appropriate tips) and am fairly happy with my progress. I am quite new to prepping and this is the first multi block I have attempted. The rock is not terribly hard for the most part but can be a bit sticky. Yesterday, whilst trying to uncover an ammonite in the corner of the rock, I uncovered another ammonite, and then another, and then a bivalve. The three ammonites are all pretty much on top of each other and I don't k
  12. I’m so new to identifying fossils it hurts, but I love finding & collecting them nonetheless! This one was found on a recent trip to Chippel Bay close to Seven Rock Point in Lyme. I’m not sure what it is though - maybe wood? It’s incredibly delicate and has already flaked quite badly due to transport (as seen in first photo). Black with several gray cracks in it, although there’s white flecks in the cross section. Seems to be barely stuck to some form of shale. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Ichthyosaur vertebra?

    Hi. I'm currently on holiday in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England and I have found this vertebrae on the beech. It's maybe 1.5cm in diameter. I believe it to be ichteosaur but I was wondering if anyone could clarify? Also, it appears to be missing a portion, would this likely have occurred pre or post fossilisation?

    Fossil identification

    Hi, Hope everyone is well? We found this in Lyme Regis yesterday and we are struggling to identify it. From the shape it looks like it could be a kind of fish head, and there looks to be a indent of an eye but we are not sure. Any help would be appreciated and it will make a 7 year old future paleontologist very happy! Thanks Austin
  15. I've spent a fair amount of time now combing the beaches around Lyme Regis and Charmouth in Dorset, England, and thought i would put together a topic that presents all of my marine reptile bone finds (so far) in one place. The fossils here are Early Jurassic in age, approx. 195-190 million years old and come predominantly from the Blue Lias and Charmouth Mudstone formations. I first visited this area in 2013 with the simple goal of finding at least one ichthyosaur vertebra, and now after three subsequent trips in 2014, 2017 and 2019, i've put together a far better assortment of finds than i co
  16. Hello! Found these ammonites (?) in a rock at Lyme Regis today but not sure how (if possible) I could extract them and see if there's more in the rock? Also I'd be interested to know the minerals they are made of if anyone knows. There's also a few sparkly crystal looking bits in the rock. Thanks! Eloise (:

    Identification Lyme Regis

    Hi, I don't think this is a fossil looks like some kind of tooth to me but could be wrong, searched the internet but couldn't find anything like it! Could anyone help identify what it is? I found it in Lyme Regis yesterday. Thanks!

    Marine reptile tooth ID Lyme Regis

    Hi all, Bought this tooth online a while back. It was sold to me as "Ichthyosaurus platyodon" (which I understand to mean Temnodontosaurus platyodon) from Lyme Regis. Likely found by the seller themselves, as I know they occasionally collect fossils there. However, for the following reasons, I'm not sure about this attribution: Overall, the tooth doesn't look like your typical ichthyosaur tooth to me: It has more of an oval rather than round cross-section It's labolingually flattened Messial and distal carinae run the full length of the cr
  19. Hi everyone. Today, I found this on the beach east of Charmouth, Dorset, England whilst digging for iron pyrite ammonites. Curious to know what it might be. It’s shell-like and rippled. Looks quite fragile too, as many from the soft rocks along that stretch of beach tend to me. Any sensible thoughts welcome.
  20. I have just seen this for sale and while it could potentially be a nice addition to my daughter’s ichthyosaur collection, the attempted prep is a bit off putting. The seller says it’s on ‘calcite beef’. How difficult would it be to just tidy up those air scribe marks? I don’t see the need for any further exposure, just a bit of tidying. Do forum rules allow me to ask what the appropriate cost of getting this done professionally would be if I didn’t fancy attempting it? Thank you for looking

    Lyme Regis Brachiopods

    While looking at one of the shells in my collection that i had originally thought was a bivalve, from the stretch of beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, in Dorset (UK), another glance made me realize it is in fact a brachiopod: symmetry in plan view, asymmetrically sized valves in lateral view. So i dug out my British Mesozoic Fossils book and have identified it confidently as Cincta numismalis, which the book lists as occurring within the "Jamesoni Zone" of the Lower Lias at Radstock in Somerset. I am not familiar with the brachiopods of the Lower Lias at Lyme Regis in Dorset, but a

    Hi and Help

    Hi. I’m new to fossil hunting and collecting its a little hobby my 8 year old son enjoys. We came across this on the beach last year and I have no idea how to open it and if it is a ammonite. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
  24. Can anyone identify this object found last year on the shore at Lyme Regis? Thanks and warm regards.
