    Ostrea alifera var. pediformis Craigin

    This is a Cretaceous oyster that I found in Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. The oyster has traces of a yellowish calcite-cemented sandstone found in the upper part of the Arcadia Park Formation of the Eagle Ford Group. "Pediformis" in the name, Ostrea alifera var. pediformis, means foot-shaped or pediform because the oyster looks like a foot or boot. In Hill 1898, the author eliminated the Ostrea alifera Cragin, and Ostrea alifera var. pediformis Cragin names because he considered them to be Ostrea lugubris Conrad. I disagree with Hill's decision because my oyste
  2. I have found a few of these oyster shells near the top of the upper Glen Rose. This is about the only real fossil I find in the area I can look. Hope that it's identifiable. There is an Edwards (Fort Terrett) cap on the hill I find these on. I don't believe they are washing down from there but it is possible. All I have found have very flat bases with an obvious wedge shape to them. Only found what I assume are the bases, never a top. First post on here so don't be too brutal.

    Fossil or Modern Oyster?

    So I’ve been out of commission for some time due to back surgery. Just starting to work my way back into my favorite hobby. While cutting the grass on my property I found a recently exposed chert outcropping. After doing a little digging I found these two shells that were in a small area along with some chert, chert with agatized coral, and some beautiful colored chert. I have a small freshwater creek that runs through my property and this was within maybe 20 feet of it. They look like fossils, but I’ve been wrong before. Thanks in advance and I look forward to starting to plan my next

    Mystery Oyster content

    So, I found a large complete Oyster at Poricy Park, NJ and was cleaning it as gentle as I could as it is very fragile but after a while of running warm water over it the two halves separated in it was nothing but hardened mud, silt or clay of some sort. But inside to one edge of the shell against the bottom half was something hard, not round but triangular in shape with about 1/2” sides. This was the only thing found within the two halves except for the very fine sediment. Opinions?? Thank you.

    Zigzag 'toothed' oyster

    Hi everyone, Collected this fossil a while ago in or around Cap Gris-Nez, France, and was curious about what it exactly it is. it's about 8.5 cm. Thanks in advance.
  8. Thanks for any help putting species IDs on these marine fossils from Magoito Beach, Portugal. My best guesses are as follows: 1-12) Oysters, unsure of species 13-20) Clams, original material and steinkerns. 13, 16 and 19 are quite "tall", others rather flat. 21, 22) ?? Possibly a coral? Or crinoid fragments or a trace fossil? 23, 24) smaller oyster pieces 25) a mussel? 26-29) gastropods 30) shark tooth - possibly goblin shark? Sadly fragmented, but has distinctive pair of lobes at the root midline 31) ?? intriguing paddle-shaped structure with a distinctive mid-line

    Curious Oyster?

    Someone else mentioned finding oyster fossils in the SF East Bay area CA, What you you guys think of this one? Area is a creek bed draining a diverse ranging from Miocene to Jurassic and in between. Thanks in advance for lending your experience and knowledge to hep me I.D. fossils.
  10. Hi all, not sure if anyone can help with this. A long time ago (like 35 plus years) I went on a fossil hunt. I was little but believe it was somewhere in New York. We went for a hike in palisades on the same day. We picked these oyster shells and were under the impression ever since that they’re fossilized. They are hard and heavy. I would value any input anyone may have about them. Thanks in advance.

    A rare Saturday Hunt

    Went hunting with a friend yesterday on the Peace River. Saturday is unusual for me because of increased river traffic on the weekends. Since I can hunt any weekday, I tend to avoid weekends. We were prospecting, looking for gravel. As always interesting finds: Not too many , but interesting .. One location had agatized shell: I guess this might be the equivalent of a RucksPit Calcite Clam, but this half bivalve is pretty complete and clearly an oyster. I am not positive on the creation process but think I ought to name it a silicafied Oyster. I would like to find more of thi

  13. •Petrified Oyster With Crystalized Pearl• Found Santa Fe Trail Kansas City Missouri, Fossil Oyster Blister Pearl, What's it Called Proper? Info?
  14. Found in Grayson formation Tarrant co, have searched and searched and finally came across Pseudoperna congesta, if that's not what it is I give up . Can't tell what they were attached to, assuming it's a mineral encrusting them? Or are they encrusting the mineral? My guess is it's some form of iron oxide, perhaps magnetite? Scale is cm.
  15. Looking for some help on this shell specimen. It was part of a large rock and mineral collection I acquired not long ago but unlike the rocks and minerals this was not labeled, so I have no location info to offer. Thx in advance.
  16. Hi guys, I bought this fossil in a fossil store as trigonia, seems to me More líke a crassostraea fossil or oyster fossil. I bought It at baja California, México.
