    Isle of Wight Bone

    My daughter and I have just returned from the Isle of Wight, we hunted a couple of times around Yarmouth and Bouldnor where the beaches are full of Oligocene material. We found lots of pieces of croc, turtle and sturgeon as well as a small fish vert. We also found this which I think is the distal end of a mammal humerus. While I don’t think Pleistocene can be ruled out, the bone is heavy and feels fully mineralised. Tapping it with a spoon sounds like hitting rock as opposed to bone and it feels a lot more like rock than any of the ice age bones in our collection. I have read that as well

    Ischyromys? (rodentia)

    I am looking for confirmation of the identity of this rodent jaw from the White River Group of NW Nebraska. I am thinking Ischyromys. Thoughts? Scale is mm. Occlusal view enlarged and not to scale. @jpc, @Fruitbat, @Nimravis

    Twin Beach-Washington

    Weather was pretty decent Monday-Tuesday, so I thought a trip back out to the Peninsula would be nice. Twin Beach is good place to find marine Oligocene fossils. I read a paper recently that proposes that the fossils here may have been part of a 300+ meter deep sea shelf community that was slowly uplifted. Callianopsis clallamensis ghost shrimp claws, extremely common here. Regret cracking this one, would have looked really good prepped. Many of the shrimp fossils have calcite crystals that have formed inside them.

    Kekenodon redescribed

    For those interested in early cetacean evolution, the long-awaited redescription of the late Oligocene cetacean Kekenodon is finally out: Corrie, J. E., & Fordyce, R. E., 2022. A redescription and re-evaluation of Kekenodon onamata (Mammalia: Cetacea), a late-surviving archaeocete from the Late Oligocene of New Zealand.

    3 toed horse incisor or deer incisor?

    This tooth was found in northeast in a spring fed creek. It is very sticky and I believe it is fossilized. I don't have a way to take scaled pics at the moment. I promise not to bug yall with my posts for awhile.

    Some Oreodont Bones

    I had recently received a couple unprepped oreodont limb bones from @snolly50 and have started prepping them. Here's a pic of my workstation There's been a lot of repair in these bones that I had to do. The bone on the left I'm pretty sure is a humerus. Here's some more pictures of that one Then there's this other bone that I'm working on repairing and prepping, I think this might be a femur? Then I have this piece that looks like the end of the tibia and fibula with some tarsals. And last I have this unidentified limb bone end, about 3 inches long

    Mystery Bones

    By some vast, cosmic alignment of karma, snolly has become the possessor of a horde of material, deaccessioned from a museum's abundance. Information is scant, but "Oligocene" and "Nebraska" are offered as clues. The foil wrapped specimens had apparently lain in benign neglect for a a generous span, the bone rests in pieces with sheets of dried, peeling consolidant and crumbling matrix. The specimens appear to be limb bones and Oreodont is the donor that presents as likely. At present, snolly is leisurely joining the puzzle pieces and removing old consolidant (white glue?) and mat

    Is this Poebrotherium or Oreodont jaw?

    Hi folks! I just get this mandible from a guy sold as unpreped. He found it in South Dakota. Because it still cover in matrix as some section so I would like to as you if this is a Poebrotherium camel jaw or it belong to Oreodont? I can’t identify between both of these species because the tooth look very similar of herbivore animal. Thank you.

    A Ghost Shrimp Claw (Yet Again)

    I've been on a ghost shrimp claw kick lately, working through the concretions that I collected over Presidents Day weekend (February 21st for all you non-Americans). This one came out pretty nice! Species is Callianopsis clallamensis from Washington State. Prepped with a Dremel 290.
  23. Location: where fossiliferous exposures are found in streambanks and in cuts on highways, logging roads, and railways. The type area of the formation is along the Nehalem River near Pittsburg, Oreg., where a highway cut affords a good exposure of its lower part. Exposures of the Pittsburg Bluff Formation are relatively scarce; they are interrupted by broad areas of thick soil cover and dense vegetation. The formation is cut by minor visible faults, and there may be others that are not visible, so the mapping is uncertain in some places. The Pittsburg Bluff Formation conform
  24. This Cliff Face Is Packed With Fossilized Whale Remains Devon Bidal, (Hakai Magazine) Smithsonian Magazine, February 18, 2022 Yours, Paul H.
  25. Looking on the web for ID, I found Stichocorys delemontensis which is a Miocene animal, while this specimen is from the Pittsburg Bluff which is Oligocene. Shape is similar I think. Again this are from a 5 mpx camera and this is about as good as the image gets @ 800X. subject is almost centered in image.
