  1. From the album Carboniferous from PA.

    Ditomopyge decurtata (trilobite pygidium on Trepospira gastropod) Pennsylvanian Period Ames Limestone Mundys Corner, PA.
  2. Gastropod from Jacksboro Texas

    Polly M. is the fieldtrip leader for the Dallas Paleontological Society. She found this Pennsylvanian Period snail and we don't know it's name.
  3. On Memorial Day weekend in 2015, my dad and I took a fossil hunting trip to Brownwood, Texas. One of our destinations was the Wilson Clay Pits. We discovered lots of great pieces, which I will eventually get around to posting. But one specimen has been floating in the back of my mind, and I would like some help in identifying it. At first, I thought it looked like a shark tooth, with the three sharp points. But then I decided that it might be some sort of crinoid calyx plate. Still, I have never seen a crinoid calyx plate with the three spines. Looking at examples of Peripristis sp. make me lean back toward a shark tooth. I anyone has a suggestion, I would be very grateful... Daniel
  4. Arthropod, Crustacean?

    I have done quite a few searches and read crustacean papers but I cannot reach a conclusion. It was suggested that it may be an arthropod, maybe crustacean. Does anyone think that this looks likely for arthropod? It was in a nodule. It is from the Pennsylvanian Period. Thanks for looking!
  5. Small Jaw With Teeth?

    I don't trust my vision with this one. I think I see a few small round teeth on the lower part. Pennsylvanian Period, Texas Thanks!
  6. Soft Bodied Fossil?

    I am not even sure it's a fossil but it's shape doesn't seem random to me. I have never found any soft bodied fossils before that I am aware of so I am not sure.. Pennsylvanian Period, Texas (Images are of both sides of the nodule)..
  7. Carboniferous Jaw With Teeth

    I have been hoping to find a jaw with teeth for so long. I have a scrap pile while I put matrix pieces that have nothing interesting in them. I decided to hammer open some of the scraps.. It to great delight and surprise I could see what looked like teeth with my loupe but still could not tell until I took pics. The size of these teeth is very frustrating as it is so hard to try to get pics that are half way clear.. Here are the best of the shots. I am hoping it can be identified.. My theory is this jaw is the same type of fish as one of the heads I've found. The last shot is on the negative side. Thanks!
  8. Unknown

    I was going through some fossil containers that I haven't looked at in a long time. This came from a fossil hunt in 2009 and I noticed a tiny nodule I had picked up. I opened it the other day.. It is Pennsylvanian (upper carboniferous) and from Palo Pinto County, Texas.. At first I thought it might be a hackle fracture but once I took pics I could tell it wasn't. I am hoping someone might know.
  9. Borers Of Some Type

    This was from a trip to one of my sites a few days ago.. It was the first time I have had a police officer stop in years and I have to say was the most friendly one I have ever met.. Keep in mind he had seen my car and no person. I was sitting on a rock taking a break because it was extremely hot. I had on wrecked clothes, a wet towel around my neck, my collecting ziplock bag at my feet.. Next to me were empty beer bottles and a huge bottle of whiskey (not mine). I must have presented quite the picture.. He was checking to see if I was ok and didn't even ask me what I was doing but I did offer the information.. We talked for a few minutes and he just mentioned how hot it was and if I needed anything just call. So here's a shout out to all the friendly, helpful officers out there!! This fossil looks like it was taken over by some kind of borer. I was just wondering if it was possible to ID what kind of critters these were.. I find this kind of thing peaks my interest.. It looks like the host was some type of shell. Here are the images
  10. Unknown Bone

    This is a small bone that I found recently.. It is from the Pennsylvanian Period, Texas. I was really excited when it first opened because I thought those were teeth in the center but they are not. They seem to be fused together.. I thought someone might recognize it from something they have found.. I think it is part of a fish. The first shot is for size only with all the other shots through my loupe.. This shot is the negative side The rest are different views of the positive side
  11. Possible Sponge?

    This is what I think might be sponge but I am not certain. I am basing it on the area where the white material isn't present but where it once was.. I know I have seen the area under the white before but cannot remember where.. Any help would be appreciated.
  12. Thanks to trip leaders Polly and North Sulphur River King... Jacksboro is in the Upper Pennsylvanian, lower Graham Formation.. My best finds were two great Orodus teeth, a shark spine and a mystery tooth.. If anyone can ID the round mystery tooth it would be much appreciated.. The tooth below is the one that I could use help with.. That's a penny underneath
