    Preservation of colour in fossil shells

    Hi all, Some time ago I found this shell in (what I believe to be) the French Upper Muschelkalk (Triassic). Now I'm not into shells myself, but to judge from the remains of operculum on the underside of it, the specimen concerns an oyster. Most strikingly, however, the shell has a pattern of darker-coloured lines that do not correspond to any three-dimensional/elevational differences on the shell surface - which is, in fact, entirely flat. I haven't seen this on a fossil shell before. Now when doing a Google search for my response on whether it would be possible for cru
  2. Hi there, I would like any help on identifying this potential fossil I found. It was found in West Midlands of England, UK. I don't live near the ocean however this was found amongst a pathway covered in pre-destructed rocks so it may explain the displacement. As you can see, it appears quite mollusc-like and it has tiny bristles on the right hand side, almost saw-toothed at the edge. It also can be seen with a bottom layer with appears on the left hand side of the rock. It is striped and has red speckles at the edge. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm quite inexperience

    Jurassic Bivalve ID

    Anyone able to help me classify this bivalve. I interpret it as some sort of Infaunal bivalve but could be totally wrong. The specimen was collected at Rhoose point on the Jurassic Heritage Coast Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales from the Blue Lias formation.
  4. Hi guys! Haven't made any posts in a while but as I was going through some finds from Penn Dixie recently I have come across a few more fossils I would like to ID. The first few are what I believe to be Pelycopods but I have no further info on them. 1. Part and Counterpart 2. Part and Counterpart, found in the same piece of shale very close to number 1 3. Smaller one among some horn corals 4. A larger one, this one is thicker than the rest and is very different in texture. I have a few more pictures but I don't have space so I will inc

    Mollusc? Found on a river outcrop

    Hello everyone! Today, on my way back from Jurassic hunting, I stopped on a small river I had seen the other time. The location is this 43.297077, 23.397995 Picture shown on google is either irrelevant to exact location or something I have not seen. Anyway, the location as per Rockd is Early Cretaceous. I cannot find a geological map for the exact location. The closest known to me is Maastrichtian, 30km SW. In the area around, there are confirmed Eocene formations as well. The site is characterised by dark shales, which are very loose and easy to split ev
  6. Not much of a story, but I thought I'd record it anyway - this is the place that really got me started - in these rocks I found a bone, and a contact at the Canterbury Museum identified it as a whale rib - at least 12mya. From there I was hooked and that was 10 years ago. We dont come out here much, last time tinbum broke the powersteering on my 4wd doing doughnuts on the beach when he was 10 LOL. This is Pegasus bay, and Amberley rocks is the North end, the other is in Christchurch. Anyway - into the shell layers.. Closeup of

  11. Hey! I was looking for native artifacts in a neighbourhood creek when I came across what I thought was a somewhat large cephalopod fossil. The creek is in Louisville Kentucky, leading to Floyd’s Fork. From the USGS Mapview, it looks like it’s Ordovician of the Drake’s formation. Either Bardstown member or Saluda Dolomite member. Upon further examination, I saw that the ridges on the sides were angled very steeply. It was very covered by matrix, so I decided to get to work on it with a dremel tool. After getting a significant amount of material off the fossil, I found that the ri
  12. Hello everyone, I hope you are all well! does anyone recognise this? Is it something oldish or is it a relatively new species? It was found in a stream in Surrey in England (Great Britain) near the Wealdon Clay areas. The second image is 6 pictures but normal exposure (bar The ultraviolet one) on the left and then with an x-ray filter on the right of the black dots down the middle. The first image is both sides , except for I cut and paste the picture on ; it’s not two separate ones. and excuse the metric system ruler! Kind regards

    Gastropod Rescue

    Here is a nice little gastropod cluster on the matrix that was rescued from a construction site along Reynard Way in San Diego. I think they are in the family Naticidae and are possibly Polinices galianor. Anyone have any thoughts? I'd love to nail it down more specifically if possible. Naticidae "Reynard Way" ~3-1.5Mya Pliocene to Early Pleistocene San Diego Formation San Diego County, CA Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Gastropoda -- Subclass: Caenogastropoda Order: Littorinimorpha Family: Naticidae

  20. I found eight of these huge Cucullaea gigantea fossils yesterday! Anyone fancy a trade? I'm interested in vertebrate material, or really anything that is capable of swimming, flying, or crawling. Matt
  21. If I can get a scientific name for this specimen it would be greatly appreciated.

    Strange paleocene mollusc

    What is this strange mollusc? I found it in a creek in the Acquia Formation in Maryland, just outside of DC. In case the photos don't make it clear, this appears to be cylindrical, with a flat base, opening up to a flower-like, open crown. Any thoughts on what it is or how to prep it? Thanks, Matt

    Ammonite ID

    I found this fossil kind of out of place at a hobby store and the only identification it had was "Madagascar Ammonite". I know it's no fun that I bought it and didn't dig it up myself but any further information on what kind of ammonite it was and when it lived would be much appreciated. I tried to be as detailed as possible in the picture to make up for the lack of info. Also, what's up with the iridescence? Is it special?

    Weird late Cretaceous shell

    I've recently went for another dig at my local Maastrichtean marine locality, and the haul was pretty nice. I've managed to identify most of the things I've found... except for this thing, which I'm absolutely clueless as to what it could be. While it was still inside the rock, I thought it was some kind of small echinoid, but it's obviously not that. It doesn't look like a bivalve or gastropod either. It is approximately 2.5cm long. Exact info Age: Maastrichtian Rock lithology: limestone Geologic formation: Čerevićki potok fm.(Sphaerulites solutus beds) Environ
  25. Found a shoreline on the Missouri River in southeastern South Dakota with some mollusc fossils. There were lots like the one on the left, but only one I could find like the one on the right. Can anyone identify these? They'd be from the Cretaceous period, right? The fossil on the right is the size of a quarter. The ones on the left range from softball to golf ball.
