  1. Hi all, I recently decided to buy the below plesiosaur vertebra after having seen it for a long, long time. It dates to the Callovian of the Oxford Clay and was found at Peterborough. I suspect it may be attributed to Muraenosaurus leedsi, as it comes from a cryptoclidid plesiosaur, but is both larger and more elongate that the typical Oxford Clay Cryptoclidus vertebrae I'm familiar with. Supposedly coming from an old collection, it has a blackened exterior that doesn't cover the entire piece, with the more common buff colour visible underneath. As such, I expecte
  2. In short, I'm trying to figure out exactly what was on the menu: fish or cephalopods. While sorting through some Oxford Clay fish coprolites, I came across this specimen. It was part of a batch purchased years ago. I must have just assumed the inclusions were fish vertebrae, but now I'm not too sure. I know some vertebrae from some fish fry can be hollow, but the texture/material of these inclusions look very different from anything I've seen (including vertebrae in Oxford Clay coprolites). Because of the color and layers, I'm thinking these may be chitinous. That said, I haven't s

    Ichthyosaur paddle digit (Wimereux): hit or miss

    Hi all, Found this stone at Pointe aux Oies in Wimereux two days ago, amongst the pebbles collected next to a shelve down towards sea from the spot where I had found an ichthyosaur vertebra (on matrix) two days before this find. I picked it up because 1) the stone is unusually flat; 2) has exactly the right shape and thickness to it for an ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur paddle bone (see picture below); 3) has certain ornamentation top and bottom; 4) seems to be of a different type of stone than I've generally come across in the area; and 5) has some weight to it. It vaguely reminds me

    Oxford Clay Vertebra

    Hello, I bought this vertebra today at the Oxford Fossil and Mineral Show. The seller did not know what it belonged to, only that it was found in the Oxford Clay in Orton, Peterborough. Any help on what this came from would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

  7. Hi everyone! Took the two hour drive to Kings dyke on Sunday hoping that the new material that had been dumped would produce. For those who are unsure Kings dyke is a nature reserve situated next to a working brick quarry. Every so often they dump a load of the spoil from the quarry in a area that the public are allowed to search in. In the photo below you can see the working quarry in the background and the fenced in fossil area in the foreground. What i would give to be allowed into the main quarry..... This material is absolutely full of Gryphaea 2D ammo
  8. Hey everyone - hope you're all doing all right For the past few days, I was for a short holiday in South England - and while I was in Oxford, I had the chance to see at the Natural History Museum a new, amazing exhibit called Out of the Deep. The display consisted of two remarkable, nearly complete skeletons of marine reptiles - both of them from the ~165-million-year-old Oxford Clay Formation of southern England. One of the skeletons was of a pliosaur (otherwise known as a short-necked plesiosaur) called Peloneustes, which had been discovered in 1994 in Yarnton (Oxfordshire). The
  9. Hello, I am looking for help identifying a specimen collected during field work for my dissertation. The piece was collected from the Lower Oxford Clay (jason zone) in Peterborough, Cambs. I suspect that it is Ischyodus egertoni, but am not positive whatsoever! Any thoughts would be appreciated Cheers, Jacob.

    Plesiosaur and pliosaur teeth

  11. As I was putting together labels with photos containing microscopic images of inclusions in coprolites, I came across something that I may have misidentified as a fish tail and vertebrae in a very small coprolite. After looking at it again, the tail looks more like a shrimp or crawfish tail than that of a fish. What I thought were fish vertebrae, look more like crustacean arm joints/elements. Can anyone please confirm this for me? Thanks a bunch! Formation: Oxford Clay (Jurassic - Callovian) Location: Orton Pit, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England

    Tiny Tooth and something fishy?

    The tiny tooth is Jurassic, from the Oxford Clay at Whittlesey. I think it's marine reptile from its shape, but not sure which one. The second one I found last year, and I'm baffled by it. I think it might be fish. Any suggestions would be very welcome!
  13. This coprolite is from a marine creature that swam in the Jurassic seas that once covered this parts of England. The dark inclusions that can be seen on the surface are Onychites (cephalopod hooks). In April 2016, the University of Minnesota X-ray Computed Tomography Lab scanned the specimen using a X5000 high resolution microCT system with a twin head 225 kV x-ray source and a Dexela area detector (3073 x 3889 pixels). Many of the images shown here are of individual 3D elements/features within the coprolite that were separated/isolated using Blob3D. The taxonomic classification gi

    This is a brief video showing inclusion contained with in a Jurassic marine coprolite thanks to the magic of X-ray computed tomography (aka Micro CT Scan). The coprolite is from the Oxford Clay Formation, Orton Pit, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England. Imagery was provided by the University of Minnesota X-ray Computed Tomography Lab.

    Shark Tooth Id Please

    Hi everyone, hope you're all collecting like mad in the sun. So good to get out there again. One benefit of the weather in the UK is the exposure of fossils. I revisited an old haunt to descover some nice pieces previously hidden under inches of sticky clay and mud. Here's one from today, I think it's a shark tooth but no idea from which shark. Location: Peterborough, Callovian UK Any ID help much apreciated as always Apologies for the poor pics, this is 50mm long and 12mm at its widest thanks so much
