    Pleistocene (?) bone ID

    I found this bone in the river, possibly from Pleistocene (bone color + some kind of subfossil procceses) and what is that? I made a research, and this is smillair to nothing, maybe somebody knows what is that possibly.
  2. Here's a little bivalve mollusc from Kowala, Poland, of Late Devonian (Famenian) age. Can anyone identify this to some more precise category than "bivalve mollusc"? This bivalve is about 1.6 cm wide.
  3. Hi, I have been recently to a Cretaceous quarry in Kazimierz and I found these. I believe this one is some sort of a sponge - can anyone confirm or correct this assumption? This one too, I guess. I also found two specimens like this - they look like some kind of bivalve. Can anyone help ID those? I will appreciate any clues as whay these might be. Kasia
  4. Hi, I come from Poland. I love Baltic amber and inclusions are my great passion. On my blog "Planeta Fordon" I posted my specimens which I donated to researchers or to the Polish Museum of Evolution in Krakow. My blog is here https://planeta-fordon.blogspot.com/ A few inclusions are still unidentified, Can you suggest what they are ? I will be very grateful. Number 154 https://planeta-fordon.blogspot.com/2020/11/inkluzja-nr-154.html Number 67 https://planeta-fordon.blogspot.com/2020/07/inkluzzja-nr-67.html?fbclid=IwAR0qwfuDHZZAPFnoxJ6bwXWn446EFYdG5RTK
  5. I was told the rib could belong to some Pleistocene horse or a young mammoth. There were also proposals that the vertebra belonged to the steppe bison or the woolly rhinoceros. They both were found in Eastern Lesser Poland. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

    Black bone from river (Vistula)

    Hi guys! Just Found it in a riverside (Vistula) where currents are opposite to the direction of the river's flow. Photo taken after rinsing and removing the stone that got stuck in the hole. I wonder how old the bone can be and what animal it belonged to? Location: Toruń, Poland

    Cretaceous Fish (Shark) Tooth

    Please identify this tooth Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Górka Pychowicka, Cracow). This rock is amazing, on left there's Ptychodus decurrens tooth too.

    tooth / bone piece?

    Hi This is bone or tooth piece? Age:Cretacoeus Location: Górka Pychowicka , Kraków , Southern Poland
  10. Hi everyone! I have just returned from a fieldschool to Poland which was organized by the BVP (Belgium Society for Paleontology) in association with the Universities of Opole and Gdansk. The fieldschool started on the 9th july and ended on july 17. The first 2-3 days of the trip took place in the historic city of Gdansk which lies by the Baltic Sea where the main focus was on Baltic Amber. This included lectures, workshops, a small museum tour and some trips to the beach in search for amber. For the 2nd part of the trip we travelled to the south towards Opole and more s

    Adam's Late / Upper Silurian

    The thread http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/84678-adams-silurian/ was getting rather enormous, so I have decided to leave that one to deal with the Llandovery and Wenlock and put my specimens from the Late / Upper Silurian here, though I don't have a great deal of material from the Ludlow and Pridoli yet. However, I do still have some jolly nice specimens to show off here. Here are my other collection threads for the Cambrian and Ordovician ; http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/78887-adams-cambrian/&tab=comments#comment-832018 and : http://www.

    Cretaceous Shark Tooth?

    Anybody can identify this Tooth? Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Tyniec, Cracow). I think it's a Shark Tooth, or other fish but I don't know which exactly.

    Fish scale in limestone?

    Is this a fish scale? Or just a concretion? It's 14.5mm in length. Glacial erratic limestone, found near Jeziorsko, Łódzkie, Poland.
  16. Hi! I made new display cabinet for my fossils picked for about 3 years now, just wanted to take you for a tour through my neighboring areas of interest Most of them are just boring ammonites but I recently acquired some new specimens like that big chunk of nautilus or some wood from a new discovered place, they're from Bathonian level. It's getting interesting

    Is it a fossil seed ?

    Hello to everybody This is my first post and I'm new here but I would like to kindly ask you about the object I've found in Poland. Is it a Cycad fossil or Bennettital fosil or maybe non of them are ? Diameter - 32mm Height 31 mm. Best regards Tomasz
  18. A break from the usual dinosaurs, I am quite interested in this as it is an oddity. It is apparently a cro-magnon femur. From the site of a gravel pit along the former San River in Poland. I am waiting to hear the measurements from seller, but my questions are thus A - Is it actually real B - Is it actually legal Like, selling/buying a bone from a cro-magnon/early human seems like something that shouldn't be legal. Seller is in Europe, would I have any issues exporting it to the UK?

    Repropca sabbai (Pauca, 1929)

    This species was originally described by Pauca 1929 as Properca sabbae; In the newer literature the spelling P. sabbai is used alternatively. The genus Properca was established by Sauvage for two species from France. Based on morphological differences, Bannikov created in 1991 the new genus Repropca and transferred Properca sabbai to this genus. Diagnosis for the genus Repropca from Bannikov 1991, p. 116: "Perooids with moderately elongated body and single dorsal fin, notched at boundary between rigid and soft parts. Spinous part of dorsal fin higher and longer than soft part, containing

    Coral or sponge?

    Hi guys! I was in the Warsaw Geological Museum and there I came across this specimen which reminded me of Tabulate coral, but it was signed as a "sponge"... The sponge from the "maastrichtian age", when Tabulata already was extinct. I couldn't be more confused. This one still looks like coral to me. What do you think?

    Holosteus mariae (Menner 1948)

    Menner described this species, under the generic name of Pavlovichthys, from the Lower Khadum deposits of the Caucasus. Taxonomy from paleobiodb.org. Diagnosis for the genus Holosteus from Danil'chenko 1960 p. 40: “Body length about 8-12 times the height; head length 2-3 times body height. Snout long, conical. Lower jaw articulated with quadrate in front of the orbit, and bearing sharp flat teeth: small anteriorly, larger in the posterior region. Premaxilla long, thin, fringing the entire length of the jaw. Vertebrae 70-90. Ribs thin, long. Trunk vertebrae with bifurcated neurapophy
  22. Since I’m asking about one fish, I might as well ask about another. Again, @Fossildude19 Tim I would love your opinion on this one. Of course, everyone’s opinions are welcome. Here is an Antigonia sp. fish from Poland, age is Oligocene. Fish measures 18mm in length. First photos are direct screenshots. Next two photos have been enhanced with a magnifier from my photo app. Thanks in advance again!
  23. Hey everyone! I’m not sure I’m ready to pull the trigger on this fish, so I’d love some opinions. @Fossildude19 Tim, I would really love your opinion on this. I know it’s probably not the best quality, but it’s within my price range with the possibility of getting another fish too. Here we have an Argyropelecus cosmovicii that is 28mm in length. All that is listed for location is Poland, and age is Oligocene. Here are the first pictures that were screenshot from the seller’s photos. The next two photos I tried to enhance a bit with a magnifier in my
  24. Taxonomy from Fossilworks.com Diagnosis from Danil'chenko 1960, p. 29: "Trunk height equal to length of 24-26 midlength vertebrae. Ventral profile of body rises sharply, almost at right angle at beginning of caudal region, where the body height decreases to approximately one half. Body height in vertical with anterior ray of anal fin corresponding to only 35-40% of the maximum body height and equal to the length of 10-11 vertebrae. Maximum body height 1.5 times head length; latter equal to the length of 15-16 anterior vertebrae. Mouth slit oblique, forming angle of 50-60° with the longitu
