    Kimmeridgian marine reptile jaw fragment

    Listed in a sales site is this fossil. It's from the kimmeridgian and measures 3.4 * 4.4 cm long. The seller listed it as a possible marine crocodile, but is it possible it's plesiosaur due to the striations? @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon

    Pliosaur Skull from Morocco?

    Is it a pliosaur skull or something else?
  3. My kiddo and I made a trip to our favorite cretaceous spot in central Texas. We've been hoping to find a certain type of rock with the hopes of finding a coniasaur or other cenomanian or turonian treasures. This trip a found a medium sized slab in about 8 inches of water. The slab showed white shells and was crumbly. I gently overturned it and took a look. I was very surprised to see a pliosaur tooth. I knew it was possible at this site but I didn't expect to find one. Unfortunately, my faithful assist had slipped and fallen in the water and was now shivering so I decide to pack

    Brachauchenius lucasi tooth

    From the album: Proudest finds

    If I am to exclude the articulated finds, this tooth is my vertebrate pride and joy, on par with my Hadrodus tooth
  5. Recently, my good friend Carter ( @Jackito ) found my personal holy grail of Texas Cretaceous sharks - Pseudomegachasma comanchensis While I knew of the existence of the genus here in Texas, I didn't know much about the teeth themselves as I never was really that convinced I'd ever find one. But Carter's find proved it's possible, and what's better... he found it at a site we both knew of! So, we went out together in an effort to find another. What's better is that I had suspicions about that site's age for a while, and the finding of his tooth attests to the late cen

    Pliosaurus tooth?

    Hi everyone, can you tell me what tooth it is? some tell me it's Pliosaur but I don't see many similarities to other pliosaur teeth I've seen around.
  7. Hi, Wanted to get some opinions on this tooth. The tooth is from a Pliosaur with a root attached, what I want to know is if the root belongs to the crown. There is some matrix around part of the crown and extends just past the root which is my main concern. My initial thoughts are that the tooth and the root belong together so I just want to see if everything looks alright! thank you
  8. Finally got the display ready for a large pliosaurus jaw section and tooth fragment (pliosaurus kevani) from Kimmeridgian Clay, Weymouth Bay, Dorset UK Smaller tooth fragment in individual case is Pliosaurus Ferox from Oxford Clay, Peterborough UK 160 million years ago attached close up pictures below thanks for looking! Happy collecting!

    Ichthyosaur or pliosaur?

    Came across this tooth, the location is: Severst Sandstone Formation Volga River Region, Russia Late Jurassic 145 Mya. The striations tells me it's ichthyosaur, but the root looks pliosaur to me, do I'm curious. What do people here think? It's 34 mm long @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon

    Pliosaur tooth?

    This tooth hails from the goulmima, the striations tell me it's pliosaur but I'm not sure. What do people here think? @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon
  11. Hello! Looking for a pliosaur tooth if anyone has, please message me and I can see what I have to trade! Condition and size does not matter, however would prefer a UK pliosaur tooth if possible, thanks!
  12. Hi, I always struggle to tell the difference between a Plesiosaur tooth and an Ichthyosaur tooth. This tooth comes from Goulmima in Morocco (lower Turonian) so I believe it is a Plesiosaur tooth (possibly a Pliosaur tooth), but wanted to confirm it here. The tooth is 4.2cm in length and retains the ridges on the tooth which I think is how you might tell the difference between Plesiosaur and Ichthyosaur. Thank you!

    Pliosaur tooth?

    Pliosaurus Kevani Jaw Section?

    Dredged from the Smallmouth Sands off Weymouth Harbor, Dorset. Specimen is from the Late Jurassic Epoch, Kimmeridgian Age Clay - between 157.3 to 152.1 +/- Ma (million years ago). Specimen has an exposed tooth (root portion) with enamel measuring 4.72 inches in length and 1.67 inches in width (see measurements all taken with digital calipers). Other measurements include 3.38" in specimen width (maxillary bone) Tooth position appears to be tooth #6 from the very tip of the snout, including the two tiny teeth at the terminus. This is based on angle of projection,
  15. I know this pliosaur tooth has been discussed early in another post, but here are more pictures with true colour (I guess) provided by the seller. The true locality of this tooth remains unknown although the seller claimed it was from Oxford Clay Formation, England. Does this tooth belong to Liopleurodon Ferox or Cretaceous pliosaur?

  17. Hi, I was wondering how this tooth looks? I think it is all natural but there is a part around the middle of the crown that could be just the preservation, but would like to get a second opinion on it (there are still striations through it). Thanks!
  18. The seller told me that both teeth belong to Brachauchenius lucasi. What do people here think?

    New longirostrine pliosaur described from the Oxford Clay

    Hi all, Just came across the exciting news that a new pliosaur genus and species has been described from the Callovian stage of the Oxford Clay near Yarnton in Oxfordshire. Dubbed Eardasaurus powelli (Powel's Yarnton lizard), it's a longirostrine thalassophonean pliosaur that is slightly more derived than Peloneustes philarchus (with which it shares numerous anatomical features) and forms a sister taxon to "Pliosaurus", Simolestes, Liopleurodon, Pliosaurus and brachaucheninae. A feature of particular interest in the dentition of this new species is the presence of connecting carina

    Pliosaur or Polycotylid tooth?

    Hi, Just wanted confirmation about whether this tooth from Morocco is Pliosaur or Polycotylid. The crown is somewhat small, but there are still striations on it. I lean towards Pliosaur but I'm not 100% sure at this point. Thank you!

    Pliosaur? From Morocco

    Here is a 7 cm long tooth, claimed to be pliosaur. What do people here think? It's from Morocco, unsure where specifically. @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon
