  1. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Hi all, newbie here. This is my collection of marine fossils from the South Downs (West Sussex), Abbey Wood, and Lyme Regis (plus a couple of bought pieces). I hope you enjoy

    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.
  13. Can anyone identify this object found last year on the shore at Lyme Regis? Thanks and warm regards.
  14. Cool fossil found over a century ago redescribed. A "squid-like" creature hunted a fish and both were fossilized. https://scitechdaily.com/200-million-year-old-squid-like-creature-attack-captured-in-ancient-fossil/amp/
  15. I was recently skimming through one of William Buckland's papers (in Geology and mineralogy considered with reference to natural theology). In the paper, he discussed (and illustrated) a squid fossil that had been found by Mary Anning, in the Lias/Jurassic of Lyme Regis in 1828 (see pic below). Would anyone happen to know in what museum this fossil currently is? Taken from Buckland (1837), plate 44'', fig. 1.

    Fossil found in UK, Lyme Regis

    Hi, I found what i believe to be a fossilised piece of wood in rock on a beach in Lyme Regis UK about 20 years ago when i was kid. Can anyone shed some light on what it actually is age, correct name etc? Thanks https://photos.app.goo.gl/Prm9ryyr5RJzttRT9

    ammonite identification

    Hi, my son and I have a large collection of fossils, some of which we found ourselves on the Jurassic coast of England. As we are now mostly confined to our houses here we were hoping to better document our collection and we were hoping to put the correct names to them all. To start I was hoping that someone could help us out by identifying which ammonites these are. They were all found in Lyme Regis and they are all preserved in iron pyrite. Thanks.

    Lyme Ammonite prep thread

    I have decided to do a live prep thread on a Dorset ammonite. The ammonite is roughly a foot across and is embedded in a big bit of matrix. I am exposing the ammonite using very basic tools, so fingers crossed I will post regular updates

    Prepping tips

    Hello everyone, I recently found an ammonite in a nodule I collected at Monmouth Beach a few years back and am thinking of prepping it. It seems to be some kind of deathbed as there are (or were ) 3 ammonites in the rock and it seems to go through the entire nodule. However, I’m stuck with a rotary multitool and have close to 0 prepping experience with it . The only things I know are to turn the speed down when prepping near the fossil and turn it up when removing rock. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  20. So i managed to acquire this lovely cluster of ammonites, but the largest, and most impressive one, is stuck right in the middle. I’m not sure if I should even attempt to try and get it out, seeing how many ammonites there are around it. Does it seem like a good idea? If so, how should i go about it?
  21. I've got got back from a 6 day trip with fellow forum member @DanJeavs We've both had some brilliant finds, here are some of mine. I've made a video showing some of them. We were lucky our trip timed perfectly with a storm which made conditions pretty good. Hope you enjoy.

    Ammonite ID (Lyme Regis)

    Hi everyone, I found this ammonite recently on the beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth in England and was hoping someone might be able to tell me what species or genus this is? It is from the Charmouth Mudstone Formation, and is about 190 million years old. If additional photos are required i can get more. The diameter of the ammonite is approx. 6 cm. Thank you!
  24. They were found in Lyme Regis, a Jurassic area. Could anyone try and identify them? Also, does anyone have any tips on how I could make them look better?
  25. Hi everyone! Last week I went camping for 3 days with my cousin and her parents in Lyme Regis (first time on the jurassic coast) and managed to persuade them to join me in a little fossil hunting! On the first day we went to Lyme Regis beach and to cut a long story short, we had no luck. all I found was half of a compressed ammonite in the shale which I then realised I lost when we got back to the campsite! I wasn't bothered though as the shale is so crumbly that it would not have lasted very long anyway. We did however have a really nice time on the beach and saw lots
