    Imagining a claw core

    Out hunting yesterday. A productive day. Found a couple of whale verts, fish verts, a smallish horse tooth plus a fossil I have only found once previously. I think it is a strange type of tilly bone from a fish that no longer exists. Length at 30 mm. But I will not go down the rat hole trying to identify tilly bones to a species of fish. Let me try a different rat hole. Trying to identify what might be a claw core... The fossil does not seems to be broken anywhere on the sides, curved slightly on one side.. It is 20 mm in Length. I am looking for TFF members k
  2. I had the opportunity in January and February to visit a couple of Miocene and Pliocene deposits in Maryland and Virginia that were full of fossil shells. I ended up picking up a couple of extras in hopes of trading them to help expand another member’s fossil collection and to expand my own collection. I primarily collect plants and sea life but am always looking to add something new to my collection, so if you’re interested, let me know what you have in mind and let’s work out a deal. I can also throw in some other stuff from my trips if you’d like. I would be willing to trade these individua

    Metapodial(?) from Middle Pliocene

    Hi all, I found this washed out of a sandstone wall at a formation dated to the middle Pliocene in Nevada. Someone suggested I post it here but their hunch was that this is a metapodial to some carnivore. The diameter is 1.7 cm, length is 9.6 cm. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
  4. Hi all, I recently found this tooth in a formation dated to the middle Pliocene in Nevada. I believe it belongs to Antilocapridae, possibly a pronghorn. I’m looking to see if any one on here is familiar with western fauna of this period and could give me some more insight. thanks in advance!

    Pliocene Otolith?

    Is anyone good with otoliths? I think, but I am not sure that this is a fish otolith from the Upper Pliocene Jackson Bluff Formation, Leon County, Florida. I apologize for the picture quality but it is as good as I can get from my digital microscope. Approximately 1 cm in length, I would like to know what kind of fish it was from, if possible and if it is an otolith. Thanks Mike

    Interesting Bones

    I went hunting with @minnbuckeye Monday and in another thread discussed a couple of Hipparion horse teeth I found. We found lots of fossils. For example, here are 3 unusual ones. One is an Emmons fish tooth, only the 2nd that I have ever found, another a very rare Osteoderm from Pachyarmatherium_leiseyi, and then an oddly worn dolphin earbone (or at least shaped like a dolphin earbone). In this fossil ID thread, I am not trying to ID any of these. Here is a bone to ID. On all 3 photos, you can see bone on bone wear patterns, which seems to imply this bone is almost

    Minnesota and Florida

    I was out hunting today with @minnbuckeye. He is visiting from Minnesota. It was warm, the sun was shining, we laughed a lot and found some really outstanding fossils... Here is Mike trying to turn a rock into a Meg. Neither of us found a meg on this day. GREAT SMILE. Last time I met with Mike was March 9th , 2018 , I found this.... I am beginning to think Mike is my good luck charm.. Many of you know that Pliocene horses are very high on my priority list. A couple of my finds from today.. Thanks , Mike
  11. This week, work carried me to South Florida once again and as the winter temperatures were a chilly 70oF, an opportunity to do some weekend collecting at one of my favorite quarries. Unlike the famous shell pits in Sarasota where the Pinecrest Member of Tamiami exposes extensive beds of Pliocene shell, this quarry lying within the coral facies (Golden Gate Member) of the Tamiami is composed of not only shell but limestone, sand and corals. I am constantly confounded with this locality's geology as certain faunal elements suggest Lower Pleistocene Caloosahatchee Formation. Published reports

    California Gastropod Identification Help

    I purchased this large gastropod fossil at a rock and mineral show back in 1991. The location is from Capitola, California, USA and I believe that it may be Pliocene in age. Any help in identifying it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Fossil identification

  14. Hey everyone! i was wondering If I could get your opinion on two things with this tooth. 1)does this look like It was found in a BV, golden beach, Etc. location? 2)I had someone suggest that this may be a transitional GW, due to the fact that the serrations are uneven, and get larger, and smaller depending on where you look, even though the serrations don’t seem damaged.

    Cymatophos lindae

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Nassariidae Cymatophos lindae Petuch, 1994 Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: APAC Quarry, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Very large for the genus. Cymatophos is an extinct genus and the only example from North America.

    Calophos wilsoni

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Nassariidae Calophos wilsoni Allmon, 1990 Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Quality Aggregates, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Many workers have assigned this species to C. plicatilis, a Mexican fossil species. Warren Allmon in his pre-PRI career, separated C. wilsoni from C. plicatilis as a larger shell with a greater variability in its spiral structure.

    Calophos nannus

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Neogastropoda Family Nassariidae Calophos nannus Petuch, 1994 Stratigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Quality Aggregates, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: In comparison to C. wilsoni, C. nannus is smaller with more rounded whorls, shorter spiral and faint expression of ribbing. If generic assignment is correct, it is the second described species of Calophos from North America.
