    Missouri ordovician

    Yesterday I went to get my covid vaccine 4 hours from home near some fossil localities in Missouri that I have long wanted to explore. Unfortunately, pouring rain all day thwarted my plans, but I picked up a few things of interest. Anyway, I'm curious what this is. It almost looks like Styrofoam at first glance. Are these ooids or something else?
  2. Hello, everyone, these fossils were collected from the basal Cambrian in South China, all of which are organic. But I do not know what are they? Does anyone can identify them. Please see the attachments! Many thanks.
  3. Hello TFF, I have been interested in micropalaeontology for a bit, especially after @Shamalama sent me some wonderful micro matrix samples along with slides for micropalaeontology. The tiny organisms like ostracods, conodonts, bryozoans and crinoids are so amazing and getting to see them under the microscope is very special. However, I have been limited in my ability to collect these fossils due to a lack of these slides, I got two from Dave which were beautiful and very helpful but similar ones online cost quite a bit, especially since most were from outside the US. For a while
  4. So I make slides of microfossils from ~ <1mm - 2mm. I use a glue that I make with food grade gum tragacanth and water as was recommended to me when I first started. However, I have always found it a bit annoying to make, get the consistency right and keep properly, especially as I haven't been able to find any definitive guides to this. I'm wondering whether any of you use gum tragacanth as well and have a ratio/recipe/advice for me? Or if anyone has had good success (long lasting, dries clear, secure, fossil safe) with any other type of glue? Thanks!
  5. I did my first microfossil sifting on the sandbars of the Kaw river in Kansas (I posted the trip on the forum ). Anywho, I found this microfossil that reminds me of modern day cowrie in pattern but I'm guessing its a coral? The second I am pretty sure is coral, the third is a worn crinoid segment? and the fourth, ummm I don't have a clue- one side has three parallel ridges- thoughts? Appreciate all the help as always! Bone
  6. I'm offering for trade about half a gallon of microfossil matrix collected from Post Oak Creek, Sherman, TX. It's rich in marine fossils from the Late Cretaceous Interior Seaway (Eagle Ford Group ~ 90 Ma). I cannot guarantee what you will find. I however can comment on what you can find based on my experience with this site. Sawfish oral teeth are very common. You may also find a variety of sharks' teeth, with about 8 genera that I've found so far in similar matrix (Squalicorax, Cretoxyrhina, Cretodus, Cretolamna, Ptychodus, Scapanorhynchus, Hybodus, Cantioscyllium, ...). Reptile teeth are unc
  7. Waited awhile to post this as I was waiting for my Christmas present to organize my findings. Trip was on 11-28-2020. Took my family of 5 plus a friend of my daughters. It was cold and raining the entire time we were there but everyone had a blast. Bought some cheap ponchos, didn’t work. Discovered that once the clay got wet and sticky it made no difference in what we were wearing. The kids ended up taking their shoes off and going barefoot. It was a mess but a lot of fun. Didn’t think microfossils would interest me but they did. Will plan another trip to see what the site looks like dry. Here

    Dinosaur Bone

    From the album: Aguja Formation

    Dinosaurs have a distinct bone structure, with large and well-defined Haversian Systems/Osteons (which look like rings around holes where blood vessels used to be).

    Mammal premolar (2)

    From the album: Aguja Formation

    A very small ( ~ 1 mm in length) mammal/multituberculate premolar. Indeterminate species. I unfortunately broke part of the root after this picture was taken.

    Mammal premolar (1)

    Amber

    From the album: Aguja Formation

    Amber is plentiful in the matrix, appearing as blood-red to orange resinous blobs.

    Crocodilian tooth

    From the album: Aguja Formation

    The largest croc tooth I've found in the first batch of matrix, about 6 mm in length. Indeterminate species.

    Carpet Shark tooth

    From the album: Aguja Formation

    Small shark tooth, may be Cretorectolobus.

    Aguja mammal tooth?

    Found another suspected Cretaceous mammal tooth from the Aguja Fm. I've made my way to the fine matrix. This tooth is about 1 mm in length; I have no idea how I managed to find it. I unfortunately broke part of the root putting it back in the gem case I chose to store it in (after taking the pics). @jpc, what about this one? Feeling slightly more confident...
  15. Hi everyone I think I just found a new hobby With my latest fossil delivery I recieved quite a lot of microfossils & matrix vials as the world of microfossils was something that I have been long interested in. So a 2 weeks ago I finally ordered my first microfossils for which I reserved a special drawer in my archive cabinet. So here is a recapp of what I all got: 3 vials of permian material from Waurika, Oklahoma 1 vial of permian material from The red beds of Archer County, Texas 1 small vial of Conodont rich Mississippian material from the Chappel Limestone fo

    Ptychotrygon sp. Oral Teeth (2)

    From the album: Post Oak Creek

    Nice array of colors. The biggest one here is the largest I've found to date at about 5 mm in its longest dimension.

  18. I am just wondering. Have anyone on here found microfossils from Flowerpot Shale/Formation? The age is Permian. I dug up a few kilograms of micromatrix from this formation in Woodward county, Oklahoma a couple months ago. I'll be using this topic to post any finds as time goes: although it would take me several months or years to go through it completely, depending on how busy I am. I still have three other different micromatrices to go through.

    Harding Sandstone Microfossils

    Back in May or so I got my hands on some micromatrix from the Harding Sandstone, CO, USA. This formation dates back to the Ordovician: ~450-475 mya. It's chock full of some really cool and important fossils. It has some of the earliest vertebrate material, and some of the earliest steps in the evolution of teeth! I hope this is an informative and fun look into an important period in life's history. If you feel I have mischaracterized something or have left out pertinent information, please do speak up! I do also plan to post more pictures as I sort through material. If there's something specif

    Concentrated microfossil matrix from the Harding Sandstone.
  23. I try to identify any fossils on my own before I post it on here, that's how I learn! Anyway, I found these three shark teeth while pre-washing the matrices from Kiowa Formation (Location: Ellsworth county, Kansas. Age: Albian). A couple of them came loose during pre-washing and I found another one still in the matrix. Tooth #1: Is this tooth from Meristodonoides sp.? The views are from front and back of this tooth. Approximately 2mm long. Tooth #2: Is this also from Meristodonoides sp.? Approximately 3mm long. Tooth #3:
