    Preserving Subfossil Seeds

    Hello Everyone, I recently went on a trip to Norfolk (I'll do a trip report soon) and collected some bulk samples from the West Runton Freshwater Bed, a famous Pleistocene deposit. I've been washing the first batch of it today and found several small seeds (~1-4mm) which I currently have in a small jar of water as a few started to split when they began to dry. I was wondering if anyone could advise me on how to preserve and stabilise the seeds. My goal is to be able to try micro mounting them to take pictures and see how many species there are, I've counted at least 6
  2. 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

    C&D Canal Unknown Micros

    I found these tiny fossils amongst some micros collected at the C&D Canal (Late Cretaceous; Mount Laurel Formation). I am fairly certain that #2 is a sea star ossicle. I am less certain about #1 and #3. They remind me a little bit of crinoid pieces and I have found crinoid material at the site. Both have a subtle pore-like pattern on them that is reminiscent of the surface texture of some crinoid dorsal cups I collected in the Pennsylvanian of Texas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. #1- the big one in the middle is 5mm #2- 3mm
  4. Just as the title asks. What are the oldest known micro fossils and from when. What examples are available to see? My other ask is where can I find clear examples of algae ( oldest) and other fungi or alike filaments? My finds with algae and fungi are what seem to be sporulating nodes from fungi while the algae forms in chains like 6's stacked alternating direction. I say fungi because they appear to show clamp connections through the hypha and asexual sporulation without a fruiting body. The interesting thing of some of those connections cross to what appear to be other fungi that
  5. I have been fossil hunting in the Monmouth County, NJ area for quite a few trips now, and I have accumulated a good amount of fossils I haven’t been able to ID. Here are some of them: Note: feel free to ask for more angles; I didn’t want to post too many images. 1 inch for scale Found in Ramanessin - no idea what it is Found in both brooks - 5 in middle look to be same species; I believe far-right is pycnodont or hadrodus Left - found in Ramanessin; think its coral Right - found in Big Brook; thought it was coral when I found it but I’m now leaning to

    Moss Creek Trip

    Went on a trip with Dallas Paleo Society to a Moss Creek site on private land. just ran a small batch of the matrix that I brought back. These are the "bigs", size reference is about 4 pieces per inch. Just finished this batch yesterday and haven't had a chance to do any id work yet. Variety of shark teeth Fish teeth Vertebra Cool and unique teeth Completely unknown More cool and unique (at least to me) Any help is appreciated as always! Hope you enjoy!

    Teeth or scales?

    Micro Claw-Lance fm.

    Hi everyone! I came across this little piece as I was sorting through some of the anthill matrix I brought back from Wyoming's Lance formation. When I first found it, I must not have recognized it as a partial claw as it ended up alongside other odds and ends (fragments of bone, gar scales & other misc. fossils) at the bottom of a pill bottle where I had deposited all of my pickings. This week, however, I emptied that pill bottle to see what was inside in order to organize all the micros I found from this locality (which will get its own post eventually). It's evident to me that this is a

    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:

    Silurian mystery fragment

    Any idea what this could be? Very tiny..about 2mm. Silurian , crab orchard.

    Lost and Gone Forever :C

    I have discovered the main draw back of Micro Matrix fossil hunting. Accidently tipping over the container you are putting your tiny finds in. Even though I have wood floors, I was unable to find the tiny perfectly preserved crab claw WITH BOTH PINCERS. I hope your night is going better than mine. Pity Party at my house.

    Tooth ID Help

    Hope everyone is doing well. I miss being in a creek or on the beach, but all in due time. Every night I have been relaxing going through different types of matrix. Last week I started seperating ray teeth from Bakersfield matrix that I went through last week. I believe the these are three shark teeth that are not ray teeth. All measurements are in MM. Any feedback (as always) is much appreciated!! 1. This tooth has a little white nub sticking out. I was thinking something pathological like a smoothhound? 2. I am pretty confident this is a smoothound, mus

    Aurora Micro Matrix

    I was recently gifted some micro matrix from Aurora, North Carolina for Christmas and have been looking for tiny goodies. It is in single digit Fahrenheit temperature and it’s too dusty to search inside so can’t look today but I can hopefully receive some shark teeth IDs. There are some other unknowns but I haven’t photographed them yet and will wait to post until I am finished searching. I never knew ruining your neck could be so addictive. if you need more photos, I can get some. 1. Very strange and I have no idea 2. One of the bigger pieces and inco
  16. I looked through the non-shark tooth finds and there was a lot I didn’t know. Hopefully some of this can be identified. 1. Dolphin teeth, can they be further identified? I’m not sure if all these are cetacean but at least some are. @Boesse I’d appreciate your input. 2. a large tooth, is it a big fish or something else? 3. An image of more fish teeth, all appear to be from the same type. 4. This variety of fish teeth is much more narrow. 5. the last fish tooth variety, flat and broad. 6. I have a fee

    White River fm. Mini Claw

    Hi everyone! I found this claw while anthill hunting on the White River formation of northeastern Colorado. It's about 6 mm in length and 4 mm tall. Honestly I'm not certain that it's a fossil, but if it is I'm really excited to have found it. My first guess is that it's a small bird, but it could very well be mammalian or reptilian. Any input is appreciated.

    Microfossils

    Hello just wanted to show you guys this pebble I found from a jurrasic coast in Oman. does anyone know what the spiky shell at the bottom is? thank you for your time.!
  19. Hey all! Today I bring you some teeny tiny gastropods! All Inferior Oolite Group, Cotswolds UK. Every formation. There are a few different species that I have described here: Species A: "helter-skelter". A very very loose spiral, resembling a helter skelter... Species B: very neat loose spiraled. Species C: very tight spiral, very common Species D: fascinatingly bumpy textured spiral. Reminds me of a wallpaper! Measurements in cm. Isaac

    Pareidolia

    Micro fossils seem to provide a lot of opportunities to experience pareidolia. I find the need to temper my excitement. Though, this gastropod fragment provided more laughs than excitement. My granddaughter will keep this one, after all she once had her own pet baby dragon.

    Is this a ostracod?

    Aurora Mine spoil pile find for ID

    Ancient Bones has been searching a box of matrix from the Aurora Mine spoil pile in North Carolina and found this specimen. She sends her finds to me for photographing, but we are not sure how to label this one. My first thought is fish teeth in a fragment of jawbone. We are hoping that someone will be able to pin it down. @Al Dente @MarcoSr Thanks for looking.
