  1. Strange tracks on a Ordovician matrix from Normandy,partial trilobite?
  2. Hi everyone! Last week we went on a weekend trip with our fossil club the BVP to go on a fossil hunt to the jurassic clay cliffs "Falaises de Vaches Noires" between Houlgate & Villers-Sur-Mer in Normandy, France. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/68 The famous cliffs of Vaches Noires date back to the Jurassic period, and span both the Callovian & Oxfordian stages (166 - 157 mya) and the Cretaceous period spanning the Cenomanian (100 - 94 mya). Back in the jurassic this area was a rich marine environment and fossils that can be found here are man

    Bathonian Luc-sur-Mer

    Hi, i recently went in Normandy and on the site of Luc-sur-Mer, i found those items and wonder what they really are. Their size is between two and three centimeters. 1 2 3 i think this one is a coral.
  4. G'day, I found the following specimen among the stones while walking on the beach of Mesnil-Val (Criel-sur-Mer, Seine-Maritime, France) at low tide, below the cliff. Although I do not know much about the geology of this location, I have heard that you can find fossils here. Nonetheless, this piece was more likely left by the sea, I think. Neither do I know what it is, nor how old it is. Due to the inner structure I am thinking of a partial mammal bone, but it might be the wrong direction. Not sure how exactly a washed up recent bone looks like. This specimen is worn on the outer sur
  5. Hi! Total newbie here so sorry for the noob questions We made a trip to France (Normandy) near Cap Blanc and found some fossils. I've tried looking online to identify them but as I don't have any knowledge about it it's looking for a needle in a haystack... Can someone help me with the identification with these 2. I'm not sure the tube-like stone is even a fossil or not just some bead we found from someone's necklace... :') It's hollow all the way through. Thanks in advance!

    Normandy cliff

    Hi, I was recently in Normandy, I found this along the cliff between Omaha Beach and Arromanches. I know the rock in the area is Jurassic. I have no idea what that stone could be. It has a maximum thickness of 4 mm. Thank you
  9. WOW a eureka moment..... a publication using specimens in private collections...so It can be done and should be done. My hats off the the authors and hopefully it sets off a new standard for publications. One of the authors is well known paleontologist Eric Buffetaut Abstract: Dinosaur remains found at the Vaches Noires cliffs (Calvados, Normandy) have usually been discovered by amateur palaeontologists. The bones come from carcasses which drifted away from a nearby land (Armorican Massif) during the upper Callovian and lower Oxfordian. Most of these bones belong t
  10. G'day everyone, maybe someone can help me with the identification of a fossil. Recently I was on vacation in France and had the opportunity to visit the famous Falaises des Vaches Noires at Villers-sur-Mer (Calvados, Normandy). While searching the beach at low tide I found many fossils of invertebrates, but at the end of it a loose bone, too, on the foreshore. So it is most likely from the Marnes de Dives formation (Callovian), but I cannot say for sure, of course (the Marnes de Villers is overlying). As far as I know vertebrate fossils from there are represented by marine rept

    Steneosaurus revised

    A new fossil crocodylomorph-related paper is now available online: Johnson, M. M., Young, M. T., and Brusatte, S. L. (2020). Emptying the wastebasket: a historical and taxonomic revision of the Jurassic crocodylomorph Steneosaurus. Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society 189 (2): 428–448. https://doi.org/10.1093%2Fzoolinnean%2Fzlaa027 Michela Johnson and colleagues restrict Steneosaurus to the type species S. rostromajor, and make the teleosauroid snout MNHN 8900 the S. rostromajor lectotype (the skull fragment MNHN 8753 was later recognized as belonging to the metrio
  12. Hello together, I am tidying up a bit and came across this piece between the flower pots on my windowsill. I can not remember buying it, and I can not remember finding it. As I do not often find vertebrate fossils (as this appears to me to be) I would remember finding it. So maybe it was a bonus add on to something I bought, or my fiancé found it without being impressed much, in which case it would be from the coast of Normandy or Bretagne. Could also have been from a box of Chilean whale vertebrae, I also found a penguin humerus among those. My first guess is some kin
  13. Initially, this summer we had planned to spend a week in the eastern part of France, but despite there was no official lockdown at the time and since the area had been badly strike by the pandemy, we decided to postpone that trip. Instead we organised a 4 days trip along the cliffs of Normandy. The first day we aimed to "Cap de La Hève " near Le Havre. The rocks are from the cenomanian We didnt find that much, but all in all we still managed to grab a few nice echinoids and brachiopods. Some samples of the very small Discoides subuculus (1 cm for the biggest) :

    Help with id on this 15 cm bone

    Hello, i post here again to see if someone could help me identifying this bone I found at the beach called Les Roches noires in France. It's a 4 km long beach with a sliding coastline with sedimentary deposits. The bone is heavy and past the "burn-test", in this area I think its Jurassic-Cretaceous layers but I'm not sure, anyway this bone obviously seems more recent than that. I found it jamed in between two rocks near the clay deposits. Thanks in advance,

  17. Hello everyone, Does anybody know what this might be? Found in a stream in the forest in the region of calvados, Normandy,France. I have never found anything like this. U cant really see the details of the thing sticking out of the spongelike matrix in the pics cause my camera is not the best. But here we go:
  18. Hello everyone, During this time of pandemic lockdown (since March 17 here in france) I take a walk in the forest sometimes since I cant go to the beach to search for fossils, im in the area of calvados about 7 km from the coast and these are some of the things I found the other day walking along a dried river in the forest. I believe no.1 is a piece of petrified wood, it's heavy and have very well preserved details that look like wood. The other pieces I'm not sure, they are all heavy like rock and in some of them you can see rock. But I have no idea what they are.

  20. Hi there, I'm working at the moment on cataloguing my collection. 98% or so has been self collected over the years. Lately i've cataloguing my fossils from "les Vaches noires" cliffs in normandy / France. Im not finished yet, but i think i should share. So heres my flickr galery "les Vaches Noires " : https://flic.kr/s/aHsmKUCQse i hope you will enjoy.
  21. Last Weekend, i went to visit my first fossils show in Rouen Normandy,the topic was Dinosaurs and Libanese fossils,many normandy and French fossils also!

    Ammonites from northern France

    I bought a group of ammonites recently and they were described as coming from the Brittany coast of northern France. I don't know a lot about fossil sites along the French coast but after a little digging I came to the conclusion these probably came from sites nearer Normandy. I asked the seller for further information but sadly the person who collected them has passed away. I thought I'd post a few pics here in the hope that someone might be able narrow down the locality a little further. Thanks in advance for any help!
