  1. Tidgy's Dad

    Adam's Ordovician.

    A nice Dictyonema flabelliforme dendroid graptolite from Oslo Fields in Norway. It's Tremadoc, Lower Ordovician in age and is thus maybe around 480 mya. Another angle :
  2. At the end of August this year I travelled to Larvik in southern Norway to visit "Norges stein og mineralmesse". On my drive from Nässjö in Småland to Strömstad in Bohuslän i took a short detour to visit Taberg. Taberg is a huge iron ore mountain consisting of Titanomagnetite-Ovlivinite which is only found in Taberg, Sweden and Rhode island, U.S.A. The ore body was created 1.2 billion years ago and has survived both a number of ice ages as well as several attempts of mining. Today the mountain is protected by law and during winter the old mine shafts house

    What is this?

    lI found this rock in a quarry, at Hadeland in Norway, Katian-Ordovician age, but cannot figure out what is is. Any one have an idea? A piece fell off and then we can see a very smooth surfce inside (black part).
  5. Tidgy's Dad

    Adam's Cambrian

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.
  6. PaleoOrdo

    What is this?

    Last summer I found this big rock in the Kalvsjøen formation, from the Katian period in the Late Ordovician. I wonder what kind of animal it is. The size of the whole rock is about 50 cm long.
  7. Only two weeks ago, when i was out rock hunting on the south western coast of Norway, I found two rocks with fossils inside them. In Norway, fossils are only found in Oslo, Trondheim and on the northern part of Norway. The only fossils found in the west are in Ritlandskratere, an ancient meteor crater, four hours away from where i found mine. The fossils are some brachiopods and clams, a trilobite tail, a belemnite fragment and a belemnite phragmocone. There could maybe be some new species or sub species. I am waiting for the response of the Natural History
  8. Near the shores of the south-eastern Randsfjorden in Norway is a loaction with an Early Silurian outcrop. Last summer I found some gastropods and this nautiloid in a road-cut on a rock which seems to be sandstone, of very hard material. It seems to be an orthocone, although very slightly bended with the siphuncle visible on the top cross-section, placed in a semi-central position. Could it be possible find out which order and family it belongs to? I guess it is not an endoceras, because the siphuncle is not very large. The lenght of the speciemen is about 12cm.
  9. PaleoOrdo

    Nautiloid or trilobite?

    I wonder if this fossile is a trilobite or a nautiloid, from Late Ordovician in the Oslo-field, Norway.
  10. PaleoOrdo

    Please help ID these two fossils

    I wonder what the line in this rock could be, to the right of the brachiopod. The line is less than 1 mm in diameter. Also if it is possible ID the genus or family of the braciopod? The age is Mid or Late Ordovician.
  11. Happy new year to all members! Today I would like to present some of my finds of tabulate corals. I am grateful if anyone can help to identify the family, genus or species. First I will present corals from the Kalvsjøen formation, late Ordovician in Hadeland, Norway. I think rock 3-8 have the same species. Rock 1 and 2 are most puzzling so I present those first. I see several kinds of corals in them and not only corals. Can you also see the nautiloid? Next, some rocks which I believe have the same kind of coral: Rock

    Help needed to ID corals

    I would like to start present some of my coral finds, or what I believe are corals. The first are from Tyrifjord lake area in Norway, I am uncertain of the formation, but I believe it is Ordovician of age. Although one paleontologist told me that the area has Silurian sandstones of Early Silurian age, a geological map I found also includes some Ordovician outcrops. These I presume are favosite corals. Is it possible ID their order, genus or species? Their sizes are about 10-12 cm long. I am not sure these are sandstones or limestones. First rock: Second rock:

    What is this?

    My father was very found of nature and had an eye for valuable thing which he found in nature. In my home hometown area in Sogn, Norway, near the great Jostedal glacier, is rarely fossiles to find, becauce the glacier came out of this area, called "The home of Glacier" (Breheimen), many times in the past, to cover a great part of Europe during the ice-ages the last 2.3 million years. Here the nature is very much beautifully shaped with by the movement of the glaciers, and more movements than in other places. That is why the ancient sediments are removed and fossils are rare. However, it can be
  14. Hi all! I found this rock with many fairly well preserved plant fossils in it. It's from the Kvamshest-basin in western Norway, deposited about 380 ish Mya. Does anyone here know what kind of plants they are?
  15. PaleoOrdo

    What are these bullet-forms?

    Last summer I visited Helgøya, a place north in the Oslo-field, and found this rock at a site I believe is middle or late ordovician. No other well preserved fossils was possible to find at the site. It is very fragile, so didn't break up the whole rock, but some parts fell of which have clear patterns. It seems the whole rock have some kind of bullet forms inside. Anyone have an idea which kind of animal it is? Pic.1 Pic. 1 Pict. 2: Pic.3 Pic. 4 Pic. 5 Pic. 6: Pic. 7:
  16. PaleoOrdo

    What can this be?

    In Hadeland, Norway, I found this two fossils, about the same size and in the same rock. Anyone have any idea what it is? The age is Upper Ordovician, in the Kalvsjøen formation. It is dykes in the area, but not exactly where I found the rock. Then here is the other side of the rock:
  17. Last autom I found two nautiloids in Hadeland, Oslo-field, in another a little older formation than the other nautiloids I have found in the area, but also Katian, Upper Ordovicium; Kjørven formation (a. 447-448 my). I waited until now to present it, because I used some time to identify the right formation. The first one I thought first that it is an orthocerid nautiloid, but it seems (if I am right) to be a discosorid, because it has bullettes and possibly thick connecting rings and relativ broad or oval shaped siphuncle near the ventral margin of the conch. Its shape, although a mature part

    Is this a fossilized vertebra?

    Hi im a mineral hunter, and my whife picked up this little thing, first i was thinking it was some kind of slag, but after closer inspection it seem to have kind of a organic shape and is non magnetic with lots of small pores. Can this be a fossilized thing?

    Need help for ID

    At the site near Slemmestad where I have found many graptolite, I came over this trilobite. It is a few cm long, a part of the thorax. Is it possible to identify which family it is? It maybe can help me to narrow the id of the formation's age there (Bødalen).

    Strange forms

    My friend found this stone on our last fossil hounting tour. Do anyone have an idea what it can be? it is from MIDDLE ORDOVICIUM, Norway. The size is about 3cm long. Could it be a coral? Martin
  21. I foud this fossil 4 days ago. Anyone know if this is a coral and which species or genus? Martin
  22. Annonymus

    Is this a coral?

    My grandma found this very weird rock with holes in it then gave it to me. I suspect that it may be a coral but i dont know so can anyone help me out?
  23. "A petrified rectum of a norway whiffle bird." It came with a card I no longer have. The card describes it as a fossil. I do have a picture of the card and will upload it as well as a picture of the item. The name Ruben Shafer is on the card with what I assume to be a date next to it 1962.

    Trilobites in Norway

    This year's second hunt was successful, considering the snow. There is still a bit of snow covering some places. I was still lucky enough to find some ok fossils. The area where I found these trilobites is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad (i`ve showed pictured from the area before). The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The trilobites fossils I found are about 420 million years old I believe. I foun
