  1. In my collection (about 30 fossils in total, but it's always expanding!) there is only one fossil of terrestrial reptile (but I'm saving some money to get another one soon!) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Species: Mycterosaurus longiceps Size: 1 cm x 5 mm Age: 280-275 mya (Lower Permian, Kungurian) Origin: USA, Oklahoma --> Dolese Brothers Quarry --> Richard's Spur About this fossil: one of the smallest ones in my collection, it is a partially complete caudal vertebra of Mycterosaurus longiceps. It is missing only a small pi

    Is this anything? in Oklahoma

    Found this in a big boulder along a creek in eastern Oklahoma. Is this a fossil, and if so...what is it? Thanks for your help!

    Lake Texoma, round 2.

    Alright folks, just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of our fateful trip... but if your in a TLDR mood.... Fossils get real heavy, real fast, and we found a lot. I had a rare full weekend off work, so my son and I went back to hunt the lake Texoma shoreline for a 2 day exploration. We started off in the same beach we found last time (that I dubbed "Echinoid Beach"), but construction had changed everything and made it much harder to hunt. The worst part is that last time we left a small pile when moving everything back to the truck. I knew where it was, but when we a

    Spiked Ordovician Arc fro OK

    One of the great things about hash plates is how much there is to see when you focus in close. I learned another great thing when I noticed a crack in this one from the marine, Viola formation of Pontotoc County Oklahoma. When I finally decided to bust it open it was like taking a whole new fossil hunt from the comfort of home. Most of it is the usual brachiopods and bryozoans but this caught my eye once I got a really close look. The scale is millimetres so this thing is tiny. I have no clue what it could be so help me out if you can.

    Ft Gibson Dam Plant Fossil

    Hi, I am having trouble identifying what appears to be a plant fossil. I found it recently at Ft. Gibson Dam in Oklahoma. The most tell-tale markings are in the lower right hand corner of the attached photo. Any I.D. will be much appreciated. Also does anyone know the formation? Pitkin Ls, from the Mississippian is at the dam, but my ROCKD app had the formation as Atoka, which is Pennsylvanian. Thanks to PetrolPete for guiding me to this site.

    Permian Wellington fm Teeth

    Hey all. I recently got back from a trip to the Wellington formation in Oklahoma, and I ended up with approximately 40 teeth. (Most of which were Xenacanthus teeth) I ended up with quite a few bits and pieces I couldn’t identify. To avoid overly cluttering one thread, I will post others later. These three are shown next to cm measurement, and are from the Wellington formation near Waurika Oklahoma. I will provide more photos as needed, it has been overcast and dark so the lighting has been more difficult. Thank you for your time!

    Hunton Group Road Intersections

    Attached is a KML file that is the result of mashing the OpenStreetMap road data for Oklahoma up against the Hunton Group polygons from the USGS geological map for Oklahoma. I exported the lines from the roads where there was an intersection between the two. Some of the roads from the OSM data aren't accurate, and others are phantom roads or inaccessible trails. But overall, I think it's accurate enough to be useful. Hopefully others will find it useful too. Please let me know if there are other fossiliferous formations in the state for which you would like to have this type of mashup.
  10. This Roadcut is well known and is located a few miles south of Sulphur, Ok and the Chickasaw National Recreation Area. This cut exposes both the Bromide and Viola formations (from what I can gather) of the Ordovician. It has 3 levels on the East side, and 2 levels on the west side. Here is a pan shot of the East Cut - North bound lanes. This is the better side in most cases (unless your after coral and bryozoans then you might want to start on the west side.) The SOUTH END of the cut has all of the fossils. Ive yet to find anything in the light grey shale that covers 80% of the cu
  11. Earlier this month I got the opportunity to return to one of my Permian fossil sites that I haven't visited since around April. The site is located in McClain County in central Oklahoma south of OKC. According to a geological map the majority of the area consists of the Wellington Formation, however the bottom of the exposed area is shown to be apart of the Stillwater Formation. According to scientific publications the only fossil producing layer is mentioned as belonging to the Wolfcamp (296.4 to 268 Ma) particularly the Gearyan strata. I've spent multiple trips earlier this year searching th

    Unknown Fossil

    Hello, I'm new here and this is my first post. I found the fossil at work today laying in the gravel. I'm not sure if it came in on a dump truck load of gravel or was unearthed 4 years ago during the construction of the impoundment ponds. Regardless it was found in northeastern Oklahoma approximately 45 miles directly south of Tulsa. The only thing I can tell you about it other than what the pictures show is the smell. It had the smell of oil shale after I rinsed the dirt from it. I tried to meet the requirements for photos but I have no ruler that measures in MM nor do
  13. Hello, Just purchased some Permian matrix bags from Richards Spur, OK and the Texas Red Beds. I have a few items I'm wondering if anyone can help me ID. I do have some guesses for a few of them. Using a dime for scale. Red Beds Going to guess Eryops skull fragment on this one. I think these might be fragments of Orthacanthus spines. Partial vert? This one is so small I really can't capture any distinct detail in the photo. Most small teeth fragments in this matrix were the broken tips of Orthacanthus teet
  14. Traveling from Minnesota to Texas next week Take I35-W down and roughly following the Mississippi back up. Any recommendations for fossil or paleo related Museums to visit or fossil hunting trips/locales along this loop? I am mostly interested in vertebrate fossil hunting but would really be up for any good suggestions.

  17. Buried in Stone: Shores of area lakes, rivers ideal for digging up fossils By Brian D. King, Tahlequah Daily, Oklahoma Yours, Paul H.
  18. I found this broken nodule in an outcrop of Pennsylvanian shale in Northeast Oklahoma. I’m wondering if the fossil could be the upper part of a skull? Other common fossils from this site include fragmentary fish remains (e.g., teeth, spines, dermal denticles, and coprolites from sharks and other fishes), as well as invertebrate remains from ammonites, gastropods, bivalves, brachiopods, corals, and conularia. If this is a skull, would you guess it to be from a fish, amphibian, or reptile? I don’t see any traces of teeth in the nodule, but I can provide closer views of areas that might be o
  19. From MD, visiting OKC for another week. Had a great day at Lake Texoma last weekend and looking to spend a few more days around Thanksgiving hunting with a local or with local wisdom. Could us a little help getting a little more off the beaten path where less broken fossils are more likely. I guess you'd call me an experienced newbie. Elementary science teacher by day, love to hunt fossils by the days I'm not teaching. Would love to find some more ammonites, do a nice trilobite hunt, or whatever is within a "reasonable" drive for a day or two trip. Any favorite spots or formations with c

    Found in western Oklahoma, was on a well site so could have come from a quarry in northwest Oklahoma. It is very very light. Any identification help would be greatly appreciated.
