  1. 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 about. Seeing that the sand pile was rather small, it forced me to focus on just that little pile. Which is great, because therefore I actually started looking much more closely, and hereby also collecting tiny micro-fossils! Lots of gastropods, which is awesome because these are not as common as bivalves in these sediments. I namely found a complete yet puny Anomia ephippium, some very small Cerastoderma's, and also the ones attached. I would love to be able to bring these down to species level. So I am asking for your help! The Hague, Netherlands (from North Sea sediments) Eem Formation Eemian, Pleistocene; 120'000 y Thanks in advance, Max #1: Looks a little bit like Macoma balthica, but still a bit different... Very likely from the Tellinidae
  2. Lower jaw part ID

    Hi! My friend found this in the Netherlands,it's lower jaw but he wants to know from which animal is it.Maybe a deer ? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
  3. QUAT glacai The Scheldt estuary trawl crowd might find this useful,perhaps About 5-10 mB each,source: JGSL,jan 2018 issue
  4. Zdravo! Can anyone tell me which species of shark is this.It is found in the Netherlands (Losser).My friend found this but he doesn't know how to determine which species is it. Help and thanks!
  5. Horse tooth?

    Zdravo! Can anyone tell me is this a horse tooth or maybe a bison tooth? I got this from my friend from the Netherlands.Also species name of this animal?
  6. An afternoon on the Zandmotor

    Hi all, So on Tuesday afternoon, I was lucky enough to only have a half day of school. Seeing that the weather was nice, and that I had nothing else to do except go home, I decided to take the bus in the other direction, so to Kijkduin, in order to do some fossil hunting! I bought a sandwich and a chocolate bar at the Shell gas station, and set out on the beach. From the beach of Kijkduin I walked south, so towards the Zandmotor, while of course looking for fossils. View of the beach (mind that the sea is on the right side, on the left side it's just a small lagoon), with the haven of Rotterdam in the background. View of the beach with Kijkduin, and then Scheveningen, in the background. (Sorry for the blurriness...)
  7. Shark tooth from Zeeland

    Hi all, I bought this small tooth at the market of Middelburg (Netherlands). It's from somewhere in Zeeland (south-west Netherlands). The age is either Eocene (rare) or Mio-Pliocene. The sellers didn't know from which beach exactly in Zeeland it is from, which is a shame, but doesn't matter too much because basically all the teeth from Zeeland are from the same sediments. What species do you guys think this is? I know it is quite worn, but I think the condition is still good enough to make a good ID out of it. No signs of serrations. One big cusp, and the sign of a small one on the other side. If any more pictures are needed, let me know! Thanks in advance for your replies! Max
  8. Hi all, So last Saturday (10 March 2018) came a much awaited day by quite a few Dutch fossil-lovers: the fossil fair of Ede! As always, it was a fantastic event. Granted, not as big as the Tucson show, but then again this fair does aim to have a bit less of a commercial side and more of a scientific approach to fossils (well, the fossil buying and selling is still the biggest part of the fair). Therefore, in addition to the fossil-selling stands, some organizations and museums were also there! Such as: the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, the WTKG (Werkgroep Tertiare en Kwartaire Geologie), the WPZ (Werkgroep Pleistocene Zoogdieren), the BVP (Belgische Vereniging voor Paleontologie), Geo-Oss, and others. It was fun to talk again with the people I had seen last year, as many were there again this year. I also had the opportunity to talk to people to whom I haven't talked before. It's always so awesome to talk to other fossil-lovers, because each person has different specific interests and a new story to tell! Towards the end of the day, I went to the lecture by a young scientist from the Vrije Universiteit Brussels about the evolution of the iguandonts in Europe during the Cretaceous. Very interesting! I picked up a bunch of cool small fossils, all at very low prices, so in total I didn't spend too much money. I did come home with a bag full of things! I managed to get many completely new things that I didn't have before, in order to bring more variety to my collection also. So it was definitely a great day: new fossil-contacts, new fossils and lots of information and fun! I met with Tijn @Hunter0811 and others too, it was fun to meet you guys! I believe that @LordTrilobite and @Spinosaurus were there too, but I, unfortunately, didn't meet them. Olof and Max, I'd be glad to see your pictures of the fair! Thanks for taking a look! Max
  9. Bivalve from the Zandmotor

    Hi all, Found this on the Zandmotor, Netherlands. Most likely from the Eem Formation, Eemian, Pleistocene; 120'000 years old. Though most of it is not there, enough of it is present (such as the umbo, and one full side (which allows us to see what the general shape and size would be)) to be identified. I am thinking that it may be Politiapes ruditapes, but that is a wild guess. What do you guys think it is? Thanks in advance! Max
  10. Ostrea, but what species?

    Hi all, What species of Ostrea do you think this is? My first thought was O. edulis, but I am wondering if it maybe isn't O. ventilabrum after all. In fact, how exactly can you differentiate the two different species? It was found on the Zandmotor, Netherlands. Most of the shells found here are (apart from modern) from the Eem Formation, Eemian, Pleistocene; 120'000 years old. And it would be this old if it is an O. edulis (which is a very common species). But maybe it is the rarer Eocene O. ventilabrum? I know that they do occur here too, but I never know how to tell them apart from O. edulis. Looking forward to hearing your answers! Max
  11. (Modern) bivalve from the North Sea

    Hi all, I found this modern bivalve at the beach of Wassenaar (Netherlands) some time ago. What species is it? I am anticipating your answers with enthusiasm! Max
  12. Rough cockle

    This is a nice rough cockle from the Zandmotor. Quite a common species.
  13. Sunset shell

    This very nice and rare sunset shell was found in an extension of the Rotterdam airport, known as the Maasvlakte 2. One of the favorite bivalves of my collection Another name of this species is Psammobia fervensis, but this name is no longer accepted.
  14. Surf clam

    A surf clam from the Zandmotor. These are incredibly common and pretty much litter the beach. Edit: I used to think that these were Mactra plistoneerlandica, aka Mactra stultorum plistoneerlandica, but didn't realize my mistake till recently.
  15. Anomia bivalve

    An Anomia ephippium, found in a sandbank in the city of The Hague. This is technically an ex-situ find, because the city itself isn't really a location for finding fossils. The real location would be the Zandmotor or the North Sea; the bivalve here was brought with sands imported from the North Sea. This species is recognizable from the three muscle scars, the pearly shine and the weird little white thing in the hinge area (3rd picture).
  16. Hi all, So this little bone piece was found at the beach of Wassenaar, Netherlands; it’s from the late Pleistocene, 40’000 years old. I got two questions on this one: Is it possible to say anything more about this bone fragment (eg what animal/what part of the skeleton)? In the last picture, are those predation marks? I can take better pictures if needed. Thanks in advance for your help! Max
  17. Fish bone?

    Hi all, Found this (I think) fish bone at Wassenaar, Netherlands. From the late Pleistocene, some 40’000 years old. Is it indeed a fossil fish bone? If so, what kind of fish? And what part of the animal would it be? Looking forward to your suggestions! Max
  18. Big bone piece!

    Hi all, Last weekend, on the beach of Wassenaar, not far from the Zandmotor, I found several things. Surprisingly a lot more than I expected (I usually never hunt here), but I think that there was a big storm which brought lots of new fossils and other things to the shore. This is was one of them: a big piece of bone. It looks like it’s the end section of a limb of some kind. I can’t tell whether it’s modern or fossil... The looks of it scream modern, but somehow the burn test seems to say it’s fossil... Note: if it is indeed fossil, it’s likely from the late Pleistocene, about 40’000 years old. Well, what animal do you guys think this bone piece came from? What part of the skeleton would it represent? And would you say it’s fossil or modern? Looking forward to your answers! Max
  19. So apparently one of the rare Archaeopteryx fossils, the Haarlem specimen in Holland to be precise, turns out to be not an Archaeopteryx at all but a more primitive featured dinosaur closely related to the Chinese Anchiornis. This specimen from Bavaria, Germany was found (in 1855) well before Archaeopteryx was described and was originally misidentified as a Pterosaur. Only later was it identified as a feathered Archaeopteryx, which now it turns out might also not be completely accurate. With it now being described as an Anchiornithid, that makes it the only species of this group outside China. The Haarlem specimen has been named Ostromia crassipes. Open access paper https://bmcevolbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12862-017-1076-y A number of years ago I made a drawing of this specimen, I suppose I need to update it now My drawing, which also shows what remains are actually present on this specimen.
  20. Carpet shell

    This is a nice fossil of the carpet shell. At first, this species, Venerupis senescens, was used as a guide fossil for the Eemian, the last interglacial age (so whenever paleontologists would find this species in a new location, they would know that they all the other fossils of the location are also Eemian). But this was later proven to be wrong.
  21. Which formation?

    Hi all, I have a question for you guys... But I wouldn't be too surprised if you don't know the answer. Well, as a few of you know, my local hunting spot is the Zandmotor, a beach extension in the south of The Hague. You can find some of my finds here: Well, I find many bivalves and gastropods here, that are from the Eemian stage of the Pleistocene (130'000 - 115'000 years ago). Those shells (like the other fossils found on the Zandmotor) are from pits in the North Sea. Those pits are very rich in fossils, and when boats come to bring the sand onto the beach, the fossils are taken along. So the shells here are the same as those found in Maasvlakte 2 or in Hoek van Holland (two other fossil hotspots similar to the Zandmotor), just like on any Zuid-Holland beach. And I was wondering, does anyone know what formation these shells are from? I know that here in the collections, putting in "Pleistocene sediments" is good enough, but I would like to know if this is really the formation they are in. Thanks in advance for your help! Best regards, Max
  22. Hi all, I have been having trouble finding a good guide to use in order to ID fossil seashells (mainly gastropods and bivalves) of the Neogene-Quaternary of Western Europe (mainly Belgium/Netherlands). So, I'm turning to you guys: does anyone of you have a nice up-to-date website/online paper that I could use in order to help me ID all of my different seashells? Preferable with clear photos/drawings of the different species. Thanks in advance! Max
  23. Scaphopod
