  1. Last summer I became interested in collecting mollusks from the Chicago area rather by accident. I happened to find some shells in a dug up wastepile. I contacted the Prairie Research Institute and it turned out a geologist there was interested in C14 dating them for a surficial geologic mapping project he was working on. I then became obsessed with finding more from different points around the city. I was able to find 5 other localities and these samples were also donated. These are are freshwater aquatic mollusks from the Tolleston shoreline of ancestral Lake Michigan. Overall it was fascina
  2. I recently came across a cool-looking piece with three different shells close together in a matrix, but despite my attempt to Google some pointers while I was pondering if I wanted it or not, I'm simply not trained up enough to determine if fossils are real. There's some parts that some articles were talking about that make me think it could be real, and others that make me think not so much... I have a feeling the matrix maybe isn't the original, but I'm hoping perhaps the shells themselves are still fossilized? But I'm really not sure -- anyways, the pictures I took are below. I hope they gi
  3. I have 6 weeks of sabbatical starting in Jan. I booked pre-Covid and was due to explore SE Asia. Rather than rebooking, I decided to go fossil hunting instead, and now I am having a great time planning how to explore the fossils of Florida. I live on Amelia Island, and will dedicate some time to really scouting the local area for some sites that look like they have fossil potential (based upon Google Earth and old PDFs) because it'd be really awesome to have some more local spots to hunt. In addition, I am planning a loop around Florida, from Amelia Island to: Gaines
  4. Corals Fossil found in a base camo when I climbed mountain at an elevation of 3200 metres, to ID~ The corals looks like Liangshanophyllum or waagenophyllum but not quick match the character of Tetracoralla~ Also some Mollusks, maybe Amphineura?
  5. The fall hunting season has arrived in Alaska and I had an epic trip last week through the 40 Mile River country and on to the north slope of the Brooks Range. This will be a multiple post picture essay as the pictures show better than words what Alaska has to offer when the weather is nice. The first picture shows where I ended up for several days between the Saddlerochit Mountains to the north and the pictured Shublik Mountains to the south. This was a hunting trip that turned more into a camping trip with a rifle and then paleo adventure as I started to recognize the unique geologic feature
  6. Greetings! I spent my career as a research paleontologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (Menlo Park, California) and the California Academy of Sciences (San Francisco), specializing in Cenozoic marine mollusks of the North Pacific and Arctic oceans. My summer fieldwork for 34 years was in Alaska, Siberia and northern Canada up toward the North Pole. Several times I had the indescribable thrill of being the first collector, perhaps the first human being, to visit a remote fossil site, reached by bush plane or helicopter. I was often dropped off to spend the day alone at remote sit
  7. Just thought I'd share some finds from a first time trip to the Venice area. First, some beach fossils collected over two days. Miocene- Pliocene-Pleistocene Epochs Equus sp. tooth , stingray teeth, assorted shark teeth, some corals and Dugong bone fragment. I checked out a construction site pile that was spilling over into a parking lot and found some amazingly preserved Pleistocene mollusks. It's pretty incredible to be able to find modern shells at the beach and then compare to fossils found a few miles inland.
  8. I had posted a poster of Florida shells of mine earlier but could not zoom in enough so I am posting individual fossil shells in hopes of getting correct identifications or adding to photo database. I am new to this so please gently guide me if I am not following a proper procedure or posting in an incorrect place. I have many high quality photos but am not sure where to put them. I can't seem to create a gallery for myself. Help Please? Thanks, Scott

    How to ID Fossils

    So I've been collecting fossils for a few years now, i have a bunch of ammonites, sea urchins, mollusks and plants but I have no idea where can i learn what exact species they are. I'm wandering if there is any books or sites to which you can point me so I can gather some knowledge . I know there is an ID section in this site but I want to be able to tell what species I have found, myself. By the way I'm from Europe.
  10. I tend to think of Rock and Minerals as a magazine as opposed to a journal, but since I can't get through its paid firewall, I am curious if anyone has a PDF of the following: Donovan, Stephen K. & D. T. L. Littlewood (1993) Late Cenozoic Reef Mollusk Faunas from Jamaica. Rocks & Minerals Vol. 68(4): 226-231. Thanks Mike

  12. I visited a small Paleozoic (Silurian) coral reef in Indiana the other day. No earth-shattering, jaw-dropping discoveries, but it's an interesting spot with dolomitized fossils. Here's a google earth view of the center of the reef. A nice mollusk, if anyone knows what species, let me know. It shattered when I tried to extract it, but I was able to glue it back together as you can see here. Sphaerexochus romingeri cephalon After extraction.. I believe this is a Platyceras:
  13. Here are two coiled marine mollusks from an Upper Pennsylvanian site near Brownwood, Texas I collected in September. Not sure if these are gastropods, goniatites, or nautiloids. Two views of the first one and three views of the second. Thanks for any help with the IDs.

    Please ID mollusks

    Please ID species. Found it in Algarve, Portugal (miocene, I guess). I would also ask you to please advise me how to preserve it. Shall I varnish it? Thank you.

    Bunch of micro-mollusks

    Hi all, A handful of days ago there was a sand pile right in my neighborhood. Not sure why it was there, probably someone was making constructions to their house, but in any case I was happy. That's because that kind of sand comes straight from the North Sea, which is full of Eemian fossil sediments! So I took a little plastic bag and spent an hour or two looking in that pile of sand for fossils. The very common Eemian bivalves came up abundantly (so species like Mactra plistoneerlandica, Cerastoderma edule, C. glaucum, Macoma balthica, etc), but that is not what I was too excited
  17. I am currently providing fossils for a project involving an advanced earth science class. In talking with the instructors, a few questions came up that I could not answer. 1. What caused brachiopods to crash and then pelecypods to flourish? 2. Are present day scallops pelecypods even though they look more like brachiopods?

    James River Weekend - VA

    Mrs. SA2, @MikeR & I guided a trip for 12 along the lower James River in Virginia this weekend. Started out with very iffy weather Saturday morning with 2 foot swells and white caps from an unfriendly westerly wind. She and I were both quite busy tending our boats even when on the beach so we didn't get many photos. Mike was busy helping the folks with IDs and stratigraphy, so he didn't get many either. There were some taken though. Later in the day we did find a very nice, large Eastover Formation slough (upper Miocene). @Fossil-Hound Mrs. SA2 said she "had the feeling" as we
  19. Thought I would share a few things that I collected during a short trip into the Waccamaw Formation in south eastern North Carolina on Saturday. We only spent about 2 and a half hours at the site but some really nice items were found. First a Melitta cf.M. aclinensis. Usually the sand dollars are found only as isolated pieces at this location, occasionally a whole one is found on matrix that is crushed and broken. However I found this complete unbroken one on matrix and another person found a complete unbroken one without matrix. I have started prepping this one out since the pic, it is c
  20. This past weekend Dozer Operator and I made a trip to a favorite locality near Lake Okeechobee which exposes both the Lower Pleistocene Caloosahatchee and the Middle Pleistocene Bermont Formations. Hurricane Mathew had grazed the Florida Peninsula the previous week so we were optimistic that the prodigious rains would have washed the sediments revealing marine goodies as well as some terrestrial vertebrate material. Jonathan came away with some nice horse teeth and I picked more Siphocypraea than I can ever use. My finds of the day included a pair of rare Morum oniscus from the Bermont and

    Marine Jurassic Finds

    Been diggin again,this is what i have come up with this time. I have read that they are termed generally as "Mollusks".It states bivalves and ammonites fall within this general term. Are they both of the same family?? thanks.

    Mystery Mollusk / Cephalopod Fossils ?

    Unfortunately I have no location/formation info about this fossil at all, but I'm hoping someone will recognize these. The largest of the three is on the left, about 4 cm. wide. The one on the right is about 3.5 cm. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help!!

    Bivalves From Deer Lake

    Here are three large bivalve internals from our recent Deer Lake trip - I think some of the details are especially interesting - not sure what the ID would be for this but there are quite a few of these at the site, which is Mahantango: BIVALVE 1 - assume the closeup is a preserved pedicle: BIVALVE 2 - note the detail of the scalloped section along the edge in the second photo BIVALVE 3 This is the underside of a third bivalve internal - note the interesting structures/patterns:
