  1. Apologies in advance for not including an object for scale in the photos; I didn't take the photos for the purpose of identification and have since given the fossil to a young nephew. The fossil is around the size and shape of a typical referee's whistle. The fossil was found in the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Southern Rocky Mountains, in northern New Mexico. Petalodus teeth found in the same area suggest this fossil is also from the Pennsylvanian/Early Permian, or thereabouts. My best guess would be coral, but it would be nice to get confirmation. Thanks.

    Unsure If Turtle

    This was found in the matrix I have been breaking down and looking through. The fossil is from the toolebuc formation from central queensland Australia and is cretaceous albian in age. I just cleaned this fossil up last week from the matrix but had noticed there was something about a month ago when breaking down some larger pieces and had left it to the side. When I found it in two halves I wasn't sure if it was a coprolite or fossil so glued the two halves back and cleaned it up. I suspect it is a turtle vertebra from under the carapace but have been unable to find an example of the vertebra

    Odd Little Feller

    Looking through some micro bits I came across this little oddity. Any ideas ?? It is from the cretaceous of central Queensland in Australia from a marine deposit The scale is in half millimetres. Thanks in advance for looking. Mike

    Please Help! Bone Valley Fossil

    Hi there! I found this bone last weekend in the Bone Valley Formation in Tampa Florida. It's a massive phosphate deposit that's mined by 'Mosaic'. Any fossils in the deposit won't go through the mining machinery, so the miners pull the chunks out and throw them in a separate bone area - which is just chock full of crazy fossils. These are primarily Miocene fossils (both terrestrial and marine)... but some Pleistocene fossils have been found before. This fossil is the only one of my haul that I just can't identify. Even if we can't figure out what animal it belonged to - I'd be happy to know w

    Fossil Or Rock? Please Take A Look

    Hi, I found this in a bag of seashells at an estate sale. I actually bought the bag because of this specimen. I thought it looked very interesting with that perfectly round and smooth hole that runs through it. Is this a rock, a bone, or perhaps coral? Thank You!!

    Miocene Coral& Shells-Matheson's Bay

    today i went fossil hunting at Matheson's bay, it's about an hour or so north of where i live, and the fossils found there are Miocene shells and coral predominantly. apparently it used to be a reef in Miocene times. the rock which yields fossils looks strikingly similar to concrete but on closer inspection is riddled with large shell fragments, plus some whole shells and coral pieces. it was beautiful weather, but high tide almost prevented us from getting any fossils at all. exploration paid off though, after we found a path leading from a field to the rock formations that meant we could acc

    Arizona Bivalve

    This one came from Arizona, near Ash Fork, Yavapai County. Cretaceous... I think... However, the underside looks like something else, almost looks like underside of Turtle Shell.. What do you think?

    Marine Fish Teeth

    These teeth are from an indeterminate sandstone layer within the Late Cretaceous Carlile (Turonian) Shale. Do you have any ideas on which fish they might belong to? ...

    Well Articulated But What Is It?

    My wife found this very well articulated fossil that looks like a bivalve internal - found in the Tully formation (Devonian) in central New York. Would appreciate help with an I.D. This piece is very striking and is going on display in my office. This is how it looks in my office, on the shelf - as you can see, it's a large piece and very artistic:
  13. DEVONIAN BRYOZOAN or PLANT or SOMETHING ELSE? We were searching for trilobites (will post our finds soon) - and were removing large slabs of shale from the substrate at the lowest section of a slope-shaped Devonian shale formation. I cracked open a slab of shale to find this stunning branch-shaped bryozoan - is this a plant or bryozoa or something else? Can anyone tell from the visual clues and morphology? Shown here are the full shale piece with the covering piece also shown, and some closeups - the long main piece is about 14 centimeters long - the accompanying piece on the left is the
  14. WHY ARE THESE DEVONIAN MARINE SHAPED LIKE FERN LEAVES? These fossil marine creatures were found on our trip to our favorite Tully formation site in central New York and they look like Neuropteris leaves, although they have to be a marine creature because they are on a very large (18 inches long) rock covered with marine fossils. Will post more after I clean it up but wanted to get these online so someone can take a crack at identification. We were lucky this trip to find three of these small fossils with very delicate features, preserved in the rock, and this is one of them. There are

    Plant, Creature Or Radial Patterns?

    Devonian Radial Structures from Tully Formation (NY) This is a radial patterned fossil I collected during our 4th of July trip to Tully, NY. Would appreciate input as to whether these radial structures are random, marine creature, or plant. In one closeup, there appears to be some branching. I included full view and closeup images to help with the ID. Since we found some fossils that appear to be Devonian tree shoots in what is mostly a shallow marine environment this could be a creature, or plant, or just a random pattern in the rock. I was hoping some of you could spot some clues to so

    Are These Crinoid Pinnules?

    Are these crinoid pinnules? My wife (the one in our family with the "fossil eye") found this on August 10 on our trip to central New York - we were looking in a very low strata (about 20 feet lower (deeper) than the Devonian "Tully limestone" strata) - this lower strata was a thick (15 foot) layer of very hard blue-grey and orange rock (lots of iron in the shale). There were very few fossils in the layer, a few shells and crinoid stems. We had given ourselves 10 more minutes and I told Nancy, "Let's try to find something really special before we go." A few minutes later she came up to me a

    Id: Seashell?

    Is this a fossil? 290grams, circa 85mm diameter, appears shell-like, but very thick compared to any modern bivalve that I have seen. Was found in foundations of 1910's house in Oxford OX4 90m above sea level, found among clay and gravel/aggregate used in (presumably original) build. I don't know whether item was local to the site. Would love to get any info on this, for personal interest and because 6 year old daughter wants to do a show-and-tell at school! Thanks.

    Another Australian Unknown

    I found this macro jaw while seiving some material from the cretaceous albian marine deposits from central queensland Australia. I have looked at this specimen under a disecting microscope and the teeth are embedded into the jaw though not as visable in photos. The specimen is 5 mm long. Thanks for the input in advance Mike

    Aussie Unknown

    I started seiving again last week and found this amoungst the bits and pieces. It is from central australia and is albian in age . Found in a marine sediment. I will appoligise for the photo in advance but I havent got a macro camera so I have used the macro setting and added some shots from a digital microscope to show some detail. The scale on the grid paper is 1mm and the fossil is symetrical in shape. Thanks Mike
