    Midlothian Ptychodus

    Found this in some midlothian matrix. Is it possible to tell what species of ptychodus this is from these photos? I originally assumed posterior p. whippeli but I am not great at identifying ptychodus teeth. Any help would be much appreciated. 6mm long
  2. Finally got to visit the Midlothian Quarry in North Texas a few weeks ago. I had made arrangements in August with the Quarry to visit in September, not realizing it was two days after I got back from England, but it worked out GREAT because it's almost a 4 hour drive from my house to Midlothian, so I had to be up at 4:30am....but since I was still basically on England time....that was no problem! Four other members of the HIll Country Fossil Club and I met with Doyle, one of the quarrymen who took us deep into the quarry to our fossil hunting spot. It is so amazing that they open up a working

    Tooth From Midlothian, Tx?

    Found this in the TXI Cement Quarry in Midlothian, TX. It is 1.25 inches tall and about .5 inch at the base of the fossil. This is the ATCO contact between the Eagle Ford Shale and the Austin Chalk formations. Other finds in the area are Cretodus, Pytchodus, Squalicorax and other shark teeth, as well as fish verts. It has pyrite crystals up the middle of the fossil. Thanks for any help with ID

    Prionocyclus bosquensis

    From the album: Prionocyclus bosquensis

    Found in the Cretaceous Arcadia Park Formation from the TXI Quarry in Midlothian, Texas. It is Prionocyclus bosquensis according to Jim Kennedy, Professor Emeritus of Natural History at Oxford. He also first described the species. See his paper describing this and other species: Kennedy, W. J. 1988. Late Cenomanian and Turonian ammonite faunas from northeast and central Texas. Palaeontological Association, Special Papers in Paleontology, 39: 131 pp.
  5. I'm still breaking down shale chunks that I brought home from the Martin Marietta quarry in Midlothian, TX. Site covers the Atco contact between the Eagle Ford shale & the Austin Chalk formations. Lots of micro stuff in there. Here are my latest tiny finds. Scale in all photos is in millimeters. Pycnodont fish tooth. Thanks to Mike Everhart for the ID! Ptychotrygon sp. ray tooth #1 Ptychotrygon sp. ray tooth #2 Vertebra, I suspect fish of some type or other, That's the of
  6. In August, I received an invitation to join a group to hunt fossils and minerals at a cement quarry in Midlothian, Texas on September 10th. It was my very first field trip with a group, and I was extremely excited. I put my dad and my ten-year-old daughter on the list as well, and we figured we'd make a weekend of it. I had to be back on Sunday morning, so we figured we'd leave early Friday morning and squeeze two days out of the trip. After all, its a little bit of a drive to get to Midlothian from Kingwood (220 miles), and we would be passing some great sites that my dad had never visite
  7. Some new finds that I made while breaking down 2 buckets full of rock. Martin Marietta quarry field trip, Dallas Paleo Society, 4-9-16. Mostly shark teeth, with 1 broken fish vert,

    Vert or tooth?

    Found this in the Ash Grove Quarry, in Midlothian, TX .....lots of fish and shark material in the area.....can you help me identify? Specimen is 1/2 inch long and 1/4 inch wide....in limestone matrix...
  9. I found this object partially visible in a chunk of matrix from the Martin Marietta quarry near Midlothian, Texas. (Formerly the TXI quarry.) The site is listed as being basal Atco contact between the Eagle Ford shale & the Austin Chalk. The rock I found this in was Eagle Ford shale. At first I thought it might be a tooth, but on-site tentative ID was possibly brachiopod, but as the ends were buried in matrix, no one could be sure. I do note a "ridge" down one side that LOOKS almost like the worn serrated edge of a tooth, but the broken end of the piece doesn't look like tooth structure.
