    KemKem Basin Dinosaur Vertebra.

    Hello everyone, I am trying to identify a dinosaur vertebra that comes from the KemKem basins in Morocco. Can you help me ?

    Kem Kem Lamniformes teeth

    I recently picked up 5 Lamniformes teeth from the Kem Kem Beds. 3 are easy ID’s, Leptostyrax. There are 2 that I need a little help with. First one is 2.1 cm. I know both Cenocarcharias and Haimirichia are known from the Kem Kem beds. I have no examples of either in my collection. I didn’t find a lot of examples of Haimirichia so I can really pin it down.

    What species of Ammonita is it?

    Hello everybody: I recently got this nice specimen of Ammonita from Northern Morocco. I am not so sure about the identity, but my guess is that is Hildoceras sp. I wonder if anyone might be inclined to help me to get a proper identification. The person who got it, back in 1995, told me that the specimen is from the Jurassic, but he was not able to provide me a specific name. Perhaps Hildoceras laticosta? Thank you in advance, Best regards, Benifossil2021
  5. I'm making a collection of fossils from khouribga morocco and im buying from multiple sellers. But the problem is they have different information. So like some say its from khouribga, Oulad abdoun basin, Oud zem, Gebirge. So lm not sure what location to write down. And then age some say cretaceous, Eocene, Paleocene are all these ages in the same locaiton/basin? And if so how do i know?
  6. I need help. WHAT IS THIS? It is being sold as a Moroccan mosasaur tooth and jaw section. I suspect the jaw part probably comes from the phosphates and is genuine mosasaur, but is the tooth, spinosaurid? If this is a fake, it is a much higher quality fake than normal. The change in texture at the base of the crown is suspicious, though. I’d like to hear some of your opinions. Thanks.

    Ifrane, Morocco.

    Hi, gang. Some of you may remember the Southern Morocco trip I took in February. One of the places visited was quite near to me, about 70 km, lovely Swiss style mountain town called Ifrane where I found some Middle Jurassic brachiopods and echinoids. See http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93193-ifrane-middle-atlas-morocco/&tab=comments#comment-1026671 A friend offered to drive me up there for the day so off we went I decided to check some outcrops on the other side of the road this time so went and had a peek.Sorry, no photos this time as wifey did

    Anomalocaris Morocco ?

    Can it be a part of an anomalocaris? Ordovician, Fezouata Formation. Morocco Fossil Length 17 cm (7 inches)
  9. hy mosasaurs lovers i looked around on differents americans fossils web sites , and i found ,is nowhere a description or list about different species of mosasaurs from morocco . so I'll try humbly to fix it . feel free to correct me if you see something wrong. the moroccan phosphate history began in 1921 , Moroccan phosphate mines operate three layers of phosphates ,. level 1 : ypresian phosphate bed level 2 : thanetian phosphate bed level 3 ; maestrichian phosphate bed level 4 ; maestrichian grey phosphate only at sidi-chenan quarry
  10. The transcription of the Arab terms and names is often ambiguous. In the literature, the locality is called both Ain el Kerma and Ain Karma. Different spellings can also be found for Jebel Tselfat and Jbel Tselfat. Taxonomy from Encyclopedia of Life, EOL for short. Diagnosis according to Pictet and Humbert 1866, (translated from French by oilshale): Elongated head, ending in a long beak similar to that of Belone. Small skeleton, composed of numerous vertebrae. Short dorsal fin, a little behind the middle of the body and slightly behind the ventrals; pectoral fins that
  11. Just bought these little beauties. Were sold as 'dromaeosauridae sp.' finger bones. Ad also named them deltadromeus. Now, I'm aware of the difficulties with ID'ing Kem Kem theropod but I like buying cheap-ish fossils and then trying to figure out what they really are. Part of the fun I guess. Total length of both bones is ~63mm. Not sure if the arrangement is correct, bones seem to fit well. They're small, which makes me wonder if they're theropod at all. Did look into deltadromeus, found the gualicho shinyae which might be the best reference point it seems. Bones do look like some of the
  12. Hello. I was wondering if I could get some opinions on the authenticity of this Dunkleosteus jaw. The jaw is coming from the Devonian of Morocco. It measures 12" long by 4" tall. The seller indicates that only the tip of the jaw was restored, but I suspect that the restoration may extend further. Thank you for your help. @Mioplosus_Lover24 Care to weigh in? Thanks.

    trilobite help

    Hi all- I am doing some cataloging of fossils here at the office. This came is as a donation a while back and I need help IDing it. They were purchased with no info. These trilobites were in a nodule of sorts. I have seen this sort of preservation from Morocco and Bolivia and maybe Peru. Can anyone help me with genus and country of origin? The photo with my hand in it shows the outside of the nodule, if that helps. Thanks JP

    Carcharondotosaurid Vertebra?

    I have here a 3.3" Vertebra from the Kem Kem of Morocco, identified as Carcharodontosaurid. Before I buy it, I'd like to know how accurate that identification might be. I know how tricky verts can be to narrow down. I'm suspicious for that reason. Thank you, Bellamy

    Hollardops mesocristata?

    I just acquired this trilobite over an internet auction house. The seller could give me absolutely no information about it, but I'm pretty sure that this is a Hollardops mesocristata from the late Emsian, Middle Devon. I would just like to ask the experts here on this subject if I am correct in my assumption and if they perhaps might be able to suggest its provenance. It's 6cm. long.

    Dyrosaurus Phosphaticus

    I recently bought this Dyrosaurus skull, it appears to be a juvenile. It has some nose damage and 4 teeth showing on each side. Not being an expert paleontologist but an amateur, I was thinking the teeth look a lot like mosasaur teeth. Are they related? Sue
  19. Hi everyone, I have a theropod teeth that I need help identifying. This tooth first came from a reseller from Morocco in 2019 (before Talsint teeth flooded the market). He promises this came from a Boulmane digger, and calls it a Jurassic tooth. Irregardless of whether this is a Jurassic tooth or not, the reseller is reliable when it comes to locality I have tried identifying this tooth but all my best guess is that it's a Megalosauridae indet. Here are its info: CH: 26.1 mm CBL: 13.7 mm CBW: 8 mm Distal denticle count: 13/5mm on
  20. Hi, Saw this for sale, was thinking of purchasing it, but wanted to confirm if this is indeed Plesiosaur. it is quite large for a partial paddle at 14 inches in length and from the Goulmima region in Morocco. Thanks.

    A box with Kem Kem stuff

    I just recieved a box with a random assortment of Kem Kem fossils and I was wondering if some of you might help out with some of the ID's 1) A fish scute, Adrianaichthys (Lepidotes) pankowskii would be my guess. 2) Another Adrianaichthys (Lepidotes) pankowskii scale? 3) A small bone, turtle perhaps? 4) Crocodile osteoderm 5) Crocodile osteoderm 6) I often see similar fossil sold as Kem Kem coprolites 7) base of an Onchopristis num

    Moroccan Vertebrae

    I have here three vertebrae from the Kem Kem of Morocco sold as "Dinosaur or Crocodilian." Is there any way to identify which of these they belong to, and if so, can they be narrowed any further? Thank you, Bellamy First one is 1.5" long and 1.5" wide

    An unexpected gift

    A year or so ago a friend of mine was moving to a new job, and he decided to downsize his collection and concentrate on his real interest, elasmobranchs (sharks/rays) and fish. As a result I inherited a number of fossils, including a Moroccan trilobite. It had a few cracks that had been crudely "repaired" with clay. Recently I decided to "restore" it, which means I removed the clay (toothbrush prep) and returned it to it's unaltered state. I initially thought it was one of the common Flexicalymene ouzregui but as I cleaned it up it looked a little bit different from that species, and also
