  1. Hi there, I believe I found a brachiopod fossil (pedicle valve). I'm hoping for some help identifying it more specifically - family, genus, or species? It was buried a few feet deep on an eroding, sandy hillside about 30 meters above sea level. The hill is about 2 kilometers from an inlet around the Puget Sound region of Washington state (glacial till). Please see attached photos. It looks like there might be other shells fossilized within the cavity. Please let me know if you need more info/different angle photos. Thank you in advance for any help!
  2. So today I went on my first trip with the Paleontological Society of Austin to the Brownwood area to visit a couple of Paleozoic sites. It was a blast and just what I needed after a busy week. However, I'm not gonna go too far into the details because I plan on writing up a trip report soon. I think I found some pretty cool stuff . Instead, I'm writing this topic because I am simply too anxious to wait on hearing an answer to this question I have. Our first stop was along a roadcut that was situated within the Pennsylvanian Adams Branch Limestone (Canyon Group) and Strawn Group. O

    Help IDing Permian Age Fossil

    Found this really weird fossil the other day while hunting for brachiopods. It comes from Permian limestone marine/coastal deposits in Dona Ana County, NM near Hatch. The area is a brecciated limestone field. I've collected coral, brachiopods, crinoids, gastropods, and echinoderm fossils from here before, but they aren't always the best preserved. This rock contains fusulinids, she'll fragments, crinoid bits, and echinoderm spines but I have no idea what the large... interesting looking.... fossil is. It appears to have some enamel left on bits of it, so

    Is this a keeper ?

    I couldn't quite bring myself to toss this out without checking. Is this something good ? I think it's from the Silurian Hardwood Mountain formation, but honestly I hadn't been treating it as very important.
  6. So a couple of weeks ago, I, along with my younger brother, decided to embark on our first field trip with the Dallas Paleontological Society. The destination was Moss Creek, a decently sized waterway on private property that feeds into the NSR. Just like in the main river, we were seeking a red layer exposure of the Ozan Fm (though I read that this red layer is different from the one at the river). This site is famous for its abundance of marine microfossils, namely shark/fish teeth. One of the people on the trip was a researcher (Shawn Hamm) who is currently finishing up a paper on this very

    Tooth Looking Fossil Find

    I found this very tooth shaped fossil on the coast of Noosa in QLD. Not sure if this actually is anything as I don't know much about dossils at all. Would be very interested to know if anyone has seen anything similar!
  8. Hi, I’ve recently been searching through some sifted gravel from a creek. I’ve been looking for microfossils, which I’ve had plenty of luck finding. All sorts of marine Cretaceous invertebrate micros are abundant in the creek gravel, as well as the occasional micro shark/fish tooth, scale, and bone fragment. I encountered a tooth that stood out from anything I’ve found so far. It has a conical shape, and is recurved. Something about this tooth seems very reptile-like. Almost looks like a tiny version of a crocodile or mosasaur tooth. The tooth measures 1 millimeter in length. I tried
  9. I had heard that C and D canal site had new dumps. I had heard that the C and D site was going to be covered over, I had heard that it was removed/recycled. I went out last week to look. There are fewer dunes, and evidence of tractors and trucks, however there is still plenty of unchanged of material. It remains a harvest of belemnites and very little else.

    Aurora NC finds

    My wife and I made our way down to North Carolina for the Aurora Fossil Museum's Fossil Festival last weekend. Overall it was a pretty productive trip and we came away with well over 1000 shark teeth, some nice shells, lots of ray teeth, some shark, fish and cetacean verts, small cetacean teeth and a bucket of coral pieces. We heard many of the regulars say that the tailings weren't as productive as other years, but I saw quite a few nice specimens being collected. A few of the larger teeth, most of ours were damaged, but some of the colors are great: Lots of s

    Canine Tip

    I was out a week ago, hunting the Peace River, not finding much. Basically little shark teeth (Lemons, Tigers, Dusky, occasional Sand Tiger). I have hunted this location a number of times and the only mammal fossils I have found besides marine Dolphin are chips of Rhino tooth. I have an open cut on my leg and about to travel for a couple of weeks, so my hunting opportunities are seriously curtailed. Time to look at and identify fossils I found a week ago. Now this is the Peace River, and that means mostly float fossils, So when I initially picked this out of the screen, I thought

    another cretaceous marine unknown

    Help will be greatly appreciated in understanding this bone that I found. It looked like a large piece of turtle shell when I found it. Like most at this site it is poorly preserved and broke in to several pieces as I went to pick it up. I thought it was turtle plastron (common in the area) until I washed it and saw significant texture. Now I dont know what it is at all. Too much texture for turtle, too little for croc. Any help to identify what it is, (or even what it isnt) will be well received.
  13. Hello! I found this rock on the beach in Romania (Eastern Europe, Black Sea). It is about 12 cm long. It looks like pumice but it's actually heavy, doesn't feel like pumice at all. There are a lot of holes in it and when you look closely, you can see little seashells in the holes. In another hole, you can see something that looks like scales (You can see this in the last picture, but sometimes the order of the pictures gets messed up) Any idea what all these things could be? Also, is it a fossil or is it modern? Thank you!
  14. Hello! I found two pieces of Limestone in a forest in Germany. I broke them in half and there are some markings in them. Picture 1-2 shows grey lines. To my amateur eyes, this looks like some sort of plant or grass. Is it anything or is it purely geological? Picture 3-4 No idea what this is. Help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Damaged Plesiosaur Tooth

    First of all hiiiii this is my first post on this forum Soo, I live in germany and am doing some vacation on the beach rn. I found a guy selling gems and fossils. I bought this lil specimen. After I bought it he said its the most rare thing in his inventory lol. According to the guy the tooth is from a plesiosaur, unknown if there is more in the matrix(Atleast there are some shells but thats not the point of this post anyways.). All I got about where its from was "south brazil". Facts list: >Plesiosaur tooth presumably >partially damaged >From (

    Fish species ID

    Hello! Can anyone help me identify what fish species these three specimens are? Location is unknown. The first two smaller ones are about 5-7 cm. The larger one is 27 cm. Thank you! Let me know if you need any more additional info.

    What am I looking at?

    A friend brought me a gift from their travels. All I know is that it is from Al-khoud, in Oman. I dont know anything else and google didnt offer much. It looks to me to be a collection of 2 sizes of bivalves, and some larger shell pieces. Any and all help will be appreciated

    I Don't See This In My Field Guide

    I just have so many questions, thanks for your patience. Found these two pieces in what, I think, is Brush Creek Limestone; they're definitely Pennsylvanian Period and from Allegheny County, PA. The first one is 3 cm x 1 cm, the second is about 2.5 cm long.

    Devonian? Fossil Id Needed

    I recently found a fossil in my backyard and I’m not sure what it could be. I live in a place where the bedrock dates back to the Devonian. Hopefully this will be the only fossil id that I’ll ever do. Front Back Left Right Top Bottom If you notice in the front, top, and right images, there is a brachiopod mold, which means the fossil was either from the shoreline or from underwater. I also think that, at this point, the fossil comes from the lower Devonian.

    Pennsylvanian Marine Fossil?

    Howdy! Chiseled this out of a rock today. I thought it was a coral at first, but not quite sure now. The final picture is a cross section of the inside. Thanks in advance.
  21. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found f

    NC Miocene micros

    Went through about half a pint of the sifted matrix I brought home from Aurora. There were shark teeth as I had expected, way more urchin spines than I would have guessed and some small coral like pieces I'm not sure exactly what they are. Nice sample including the pieces in the top left I am trying to identify: Tried taking pic with clip on micro lens for the phone:
  23. Hi all, I was looking over some finds from Sunset Beach when I reexamined this and thought it looked organic. Sticks to my tongue, feels relatively heavy. Is this a fossil bone? Sunset Beach is awesome and I definitely recommend the visit, especially before the shipwreck is fully lost to the sea. Fossils seem really rare there, but the colorful quartz and minerals polished by waves make up for it.
