  1. Found close to Paderborn, Germany (Erwitte-Formation) alongside with some echinoids (most likely Micraster cortestudinarium),an ammonite and countless Inoceramidae clams. Marly Limestone Formation of the lower Coniacium or upper Turonium. I was wondering if it could be some kind of petrified drift wood, palm or root?

    age of Marl?

    I went on a very pleasant hike last weekend on the Island Creek Trail in the Croatan National Forest near Pollocksville, NC. In one spot along the creek the embankment is layered with about 15 feet of fossil shells. Trying to get an idea of the age of these deposits. Pleistocene? Miocene?

    faecal ? By who ?

    Hi everybody. I stumbled upon those photos on another forum and i wondered about what are they, and about how and "who" made those alignaments of aptychi. They've been found in Valanginian marls, Saynoceras verrucosum zone. Concerning what and how, the authors of that article Double alignments of ammonoid aptychi from the Lower Cretaceous of Southeast France proposed several hypothesis : a possible bottom current ; regurgitalites of an ammonoid eater ; stomachal residues ; cololites. But their best hypothesis is cylindrical coprolites that separated in two parts just after the animal defe

    Two Texas DFW Cretaceous Nautilus

    When I was visiting my parents for Christmas, there was a surprise for me in my favorite local creek bed, and it wasn't just how cold the water was! I've found plenty of ammos there, but these are my first two nautilus. I tried to find out what they are, but I pretty much got redirected to ammo IDs. I was also wondering if it's worth buying the HGMS ID books. I'm curious, but don't really want to spend the money. These were found in a marl layer, but I'm not really sure which one. Grayson Marl I believe. Found in Tarrant County. Are they cymatoceras? Cracked one is about 2" diameter,

    Planorbis freshwater gastropods?

    Found this mortality plate in the thin compact layer between neogene conglomerates and marl, above the flysch, at Milia beach in Alonissos island, Greece. According to a paper regarding the neogene in Alonissos [ http://sciencepress.mnhn.fr/sites/default/files/articles/pdf/g2019v41a3.pdf ] findings from marl deposits in an abandoned lignite quarry near Votsi village include Planorbis freshwater gastropods. Have I also found planorbis gastropods? Am I looking at Miocene or Pliocene fossils? As always any suggestions are much appreciated!

    ID this ?dino?

    ·Big Brook, NJ, USA ·Panned fr brook bottom w marl+ ·Miocene form. overlaps Late Cretaceous? .Attach: images of 2 fossils .(found pre-2020) I assume these (3+1) fossils may be from the "same" species, two diff. animals? No outstanding horizontal/diagonal "veins" from the prominent central ridges. Rookie request to ID b4 summer trip to c Dr. Parris, NJ St. Museum, Trenton. Thx
  7. Okay, for all my friends who asked how I breakdown the matrix and look at it, this is how I breakdown the Martin Marietta Cretaceous marl type matrix. The Matrix I work, is from Martin Marietta Cement Quarry 5-8 inch thick phosphate pebble layer. 1. It starts with placing about 20 pounds or fill 1/2 of a 5 gallon bucket with the raw matrix. 2. Then I add about 4 bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide, to cover the matrix completely. Let this set for at least 24 hours. Then, it will be broken apart enough to sift. 3. I Sift it 5 different sizes. 1/2", 1/4", 1/8", 1/16", and 1mm. What falls

    Isle of Sheppey finds

    Hi fellow fossil hunters! I'm pretty new at this identifying finds even though I've been collecting since I was learning to walk. My recent trip to Isle of Sheppey produced some great finds but I have no idea what most of them are - help! And added the sponges in for good measure!

    Star-shaped microfossil

    Hi, having a bit of trouble identifying this microfossil. It was found in a marl formation of late Bartonian in age in the southern Spanish Pyrenees (the Oliana Anticline). The marl is rich in nummlitoid formainifera, however, this does not appear like the others. It could possibly be the cross section through an echinoderm spine?? Any suggests are much appreciated! (photo taken with x10 magnification)

    Upper Edisto River?

    got a question for South Carolina fossilers but first I wanna show off my newly assembled fossiling claw with some good old South Carolina sharks teeth. the Edisto river tooketh my previous claw, 2 weeks back. will be doing some more fossil diving soon and i just had to have a new "claw" (come to think of it, i hope to find a prehistoric claw) question: i will soon be motoring "up" the Edisto river in search of gravel / fossil beds. AeroMike and I found a great gravel bed last season but it had been already harvested. It was in about 3 feet of water. Long story short - excellent gravel
  15. hello guys, I found these stones which look to be some sort of indian axe head possibly and some sort of tool that looks to have used for scraping hides possibly. Also i found these shark teeth and what look to be be some sort of tooth from a dolphin, or reptile. I am not sure and new to collecting. I also found this really cool piece of coal 3 feet beneath a sand bed which has a fossil in the lower right hand corner. I would love any help indentifying these items. Thank you
  16. any help indentifying any of these items would be much appreciated! thank you in advance
