    Very strange Permian tooth... synapsid?

    Hi y'all, I found this strange micro Permian tooth. I haven't seen anything like it. It's from Waurika, OK (Wellington Fm.?, Early Permian), has textured enamel, has a broad crown but is VERY thin/compressed, and shows slight crenelations/serrations? on the edges. It's about 2 mm in height. It's not a fish tooth or scale (otherwise there'd be enameloid on only one side were it a scale), not Orthacanthid "shark" (textured enamel, broad, compressed crown), not amphibian (not conical or labyrinthodont), which leaves reptile or synapsid. Any help to narrow it down further would be very

  3. I have aquired a slab of rock that has a Barasaurus in it. Not sure if thats the correct name or not. Ive taken a close up of what is exposed, circled in white. Im afraid this is the head? Would so much have wanted the head end in the rock instead of the tail end. What do you guys think? Thanks

    Dimetrodon claw

    From the album: Permian

    Just the end of a Dimetrodon terminal phalange (claw). It could be an undescribed synapsid, but it seems to fit the morphology of a small Dimetrodon claw well (namely the sharp "v"-shaped cross section of the flexor tubercle). Length: 4 mm ^ Maddin & Reisz (2007)

    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas

    Two Trilobite Document Requests

    I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a copy of either one of these documents. Hahn, G., Hahn, R. 1996 Die Trilobiten-Taxa des Karbons und Perms: 2. Brachymetopidae. [The Trilobite Taxa of the Carboniferous and Permian: 2. Brachymetopidae.] Courier Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg, 195:1-242 Hahn, G., Hahn, R., Müller, P. 2019 Catalogus Trilobitorum Figuris (Trilobites Carbonici et Permici, IX.

  12. Exactly what the title says, I was wondering which trilobite genera survived into the Carboniferous period. There is this paper, Weller, J. Marvin. “Carboniferous Trilobite Genera.” however I haven't been able to find a free copy online and its 86 years old so a little outdated. . There is also this, https://www.trilobites.info/lasttrilos.htm, from Sam Gon's trilobite website which has all the Trilobite genera of the Permian but obviously doesn't include the ones that went extinct during the Carboniferous. I was going to just search for the time frame for each of the trilobite gen

    Waurika Site Question

    Does anyone know if the Waurika Permian site is still legal to access? I went by there and there are now Posted signs up. However I have heard that some landowners do that so that they can't be held liable. Any ideas?
  15. In a typical Permian (I’m fairly sure) marine trash slab with brachiopods and bryozoans. I don’t have a good scale card handy, but the last image shows the slab with a metric ruler. The specimen in the first image is visible at the top of the slab and it is representative size, ie. 0.8-1cm width/diameter and 2-5cm length. Thanks for any help - I’m very curious about this one.

    One of the rarer fishes is Platysomus gibbosus. Today it is nearly impossible to find a complete one, if you have luck you´ll get parts of this up to 25 cm long fish. This one was around 18 cm and in perfect condition

    From the album: "Kupferschiefer", Fossils from the black permain shales

    The reason why it is called "Kupferschiefer" (that means something like "copper shale" is the presence of copper and pyrite. Some of the fishes have pyrit scales and bones, but they are rare today. Could only be found many years ago in the time of mining, deep in the mountain. This is one of these fishes with part of the scales and skull pyritized.

  21. The lower Hunter Valley is underlain predominantly by Permian strata, and encompasses the region around Newcastle, NSW, Australia. It is here that a diverse fossil macrofauna can be found at a disused quarry standing on private property. Mulbring quarry is characterised by excellent exposure of the Permian strata with macrofauna dominated by abundant bryozoans and brachiopods, associated with bivalves, gastropods, and echinoderms. With the weather typically windy this time of year it was no surprise when we hit the black top with a strong westerly wind blowing, fortunately the sun

    New Mammal Book

    While at a local Barnes & Noble the other day, I saw a book I had heard about last year (published in September). It's "Beasts before Us: The Untold Story of Mammal Origins and Evolution (Bloomsbury Sigma, 2021). I leafed through it and it looks like a good read if you're into the evolution of terrestrial land vertebrates and specifically, synapsids.

    Claws, Bones and Jaws ID Requests

    Looking to get some second opinions on some Permian stuff that I found a few weeks ago. Jefferson county, Waurika Oklahoma. You’ll have to ignore the paint on my hands, I’d been doing some painting prior to these photos. didn’t have a small enough ruler nor a printer, so I just made a small measurement reference. 4x 1/4 inch segments on paper. Claw 1 Most of the claws I’ve found are Trimerorhachis, but this one is definitely an outlier. Claw 2 Likely Trimerorhachis? Claws 3 & 4 Two more, the left is likely Trimerorhachis, bu

    Waurika Permian Fossil or not?

    Going through Permian matrix. We have found many teeth and other identifiable microfossils. I have also found many of these metallic looking dark rocks. Are they bone fragments, or partially melted rocks? Thank you.

    Texas Permian Skull

    All that was on the label for this item was that it’s from the Permian age and from Texas. I don’t have any further info on it. Does anybody know what this is?
