    Ghost Shrimp Carpus

    What I believe to be a carpus of the major chela of a ghost shrimp. Not an unusual find for me, but this was found near an exposure of Pittsburgh Bluff formation where previously I have only found them in Astoria formation.

    What is this

    I was on the Oregon coast near Newport and found this really odd looking rock. I've scoured the internet and have seen nothing like it. Even the Google image search feature came up with nothing. Help!!!

    Beverly Beach Bivalves

    Recently got back from a trip out to the Oregon coast. It wasn't with the expressed purpose of fossil hunting, but I was in the area, so I spent a couple of hours at Beverly Beach breaking some loose rocks (digging into the Astoria Formation itself is strictly prohibited). A large Pecten with my hand for scale. Too big to keep. A couple of Anadara. A miniscule but well-preserved naticidae, or moon snail. A Katherinella, which I still have to remove from the matrix.

    Is this a fossil?

    Found near John Day
  6. Hello, I found some fossil teeth on a friends ranch in Eastern Oregon and was hoping for some help with ID. The area has been described as Mascall Formation (16 Ma) from the Miocene, however there aren't any detailed geologic maps of the region and I suspect some areas may be closer to the Pliocene. The teeth were found as float material from several places. I think #1 or #2 may be Merychippus or Pliohippus (horses) and #4 may be Equus (horse). #1-3 were all found in the same general area and I am fairly confident it is Mascall Fm (Miocene). However, #4 was found in another area and appears to
  7. I have been an avid collector of Astoria Formation fossils from the Oregon coast for a number of years, and plan on putting up a web page that shows every known invertebrate species from the Newportian stage of the Astoria formation (plus as many vertebrate and plant species as possible). In my collection I am still short by a dozen or so invertebrate species out of the nearly-100 described in the literature, although I have also found a dozen or so that AREN'T in the literature, and plan on describing and naming them if they are indeed "new" species. So I was wondering if there were any fel

    Modern Bone or Fossil?

    Hello! New to the forum here as I have some young fossil enthusiasts at home. We just returned from a trip to E. Oregon where my kids were hunting for fossils in an area known for mammal fossils. Can anyone tell me if they think this is a modern bone or a fossil? It seems to have stone fused in the middle and feels slightly heavier than a regular animal bone.
  9. So, I'm starting a small reference (already have most of the books specifically on Oregon fossils by local authors), and have just added "Microfossils" by Armstrong and Brasier (somewhat expensive book). I've found and downloaded (using my libraries access to academic journals) a couple of thousand pages of research articles on The Keasy (K) and Pittsburg Bluff (PB) formations (as well as those formations that are similar in species). Since the depths of the K and PB formations are from 10,000 feet (or greater) for K, and up to and including shoreline for PB, there are a significant number of

    Petrified wood or bone?

    I have a couple fossils that I thought could were petrified wood. I found them around 15-20 years ago near sunset bay on the Southern Oregon Coast. They were both loose on the ground. My friend thinks that they look more like bone than wood, any thoughts? Thank you

    Agatized bone?

    I picked up this curious, largish piece at an estate sale. I have no formal --or informal! -- fossil knowledge but have always collected interesting rocks and frequently have a few in my pocket. The owner had labeled this item as being from NE-central Oregon and they had mounted it with fence wire to a board. (It obviously struck them as interesting, too.) Judging from other items, the family did some elk hunting. I thought they might know bone when they saw it. Thanks for any help!
  12. We went camping last weekend out at Delintment Lake in eastern Oregon. We went to check out the ammonite fossils. It was a great place! Kids loved it. Here are some of our finds. Interesting area because you could dig in one area and it was really loose compacted clay and in another area less than a mile away it was hard slate type material that really needed some work to get it to split. Naturally the slate material had the more robust ammonites.

    Fossilized finger/toe

    I believe i have found a fossilized toe/finger, you can see in the cross section of what looks to be exactly what you'd expect if you cut a finger off.. You can see the meat of the finger with the bone in the center but you can also see the density/thickness of the bone as well as the bone marrow.. We found it in the Willamette River years ago and thought it was quartz or something until a friend pointed out the resemblance of a finger.. What do you guys think?

    Heliolites Coral ?

    Howdy, I was wondering if anybody could tell me what they think about these rare coral fossils that I find on the Oregon Coast. They are agatized and take a nice polish. Thank You

    Help with ID - found on Oregon coast

    Hi — we are new to this and are wondering about this find…. Our 3rd grader says petrified wood with amber. Grandpa thinks it might be bone. Someone else suggested palm wood. Maybe someone here can help us get a more definite ID? Picts are from an IPAD / IPhone. Found in Southern Oregon on the beach. Thanks everyone…

    Stain or soft body fossil?

    Thanks for looking.... I have put this piece in the junk pile twice, But I keep pulling it out. Found in SW Oregon, Western Cascades, Miocene, Little Buttes Volcanics. Measures about 30mm by 25mm, Here is a link to the site it was found, in fossil hunting trips. The piece was already split open on the ground and I did not look for other pieces, Because it looked like a stain?

    Oregon Coast trip finds.

    We got back recently from a trip to the Oregon coast. We went fossil hunting a bit north of Newport. Here are a few of our finds. We have never hunted on the coast for fossils. It was in very soft matrix and they were loaded with small concretions. We brought a bunch home and cracked them open and found many had shells.

    Visited the Oregon Coast

    I recently visited the coast of Oregon and was able to beach comb along the Oregon coast from about Florence to just a bit north of Newport- an area spanning a short stretch of about the middle coast of Oregon. My sister lives along the coast there and she also loaned me her spare vehicle, "Greg the Van", for my adventures. I was particularly interested to visit Agate Beach located a little north of the Yaquina Bay area for agate and fossil hunting and I found a few interesting things from around there. The trip was planned late and I didn't have time to do a lot of self-education about t
