    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.
  6. 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
  8. 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
  12. 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!
  13. 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

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

  16. Taxonomy from Prikryl et al. 2014. Diagnosis from Prikryl et al. 2014, p. 694: "This species differ from the other species in the greater number of spines in the first dorsal fin (VIII or IX vs. VI in P. rebeli and VII in P. pietschmanni); by presence of 25 rays (first is probably spinous) in the second dorsalfin vs. I + 23 in P. rebeli and I + 27 in P. pietschmanni; lower number of rays in anal fin (28 rays with unrecognizable spines vs. II + 32 in P. rebeli and II + 40 in P. pietschmanni); and by presence of small teeth on the premaxilla (vs. relatively large teeth in the other species)
  17. Last week I had the chance to go for a short fossil hunting trip to the area called the Polish Jura – famous for limestone formations, which take several fantastic shapes and have their very own names. Here are some instances: The camel The Hercules club The Trolls It’s also the area with numerous stone castles from the 14th and 15th century – the are located along the so-called Trail of the Eagle's Nests Here are some examples: But my main interest were
  18. Taxonomy according to Bieńkowska-Wasiluk et al. 2018. Bieńkowska-Wasiluk et al. 2018, p 75: “Small perch-like fishes, common in the Oligocene of the Outer Carpathians, have been traditionally assigned to the perciform species Serranus budensis (Heckel, 1856) (see Paucă, 1933; Jonet, 1958; Jerzmańska, 1968; Kotlarczyk et al., 2006). This species has also been reported in the Oligocene of the Caucasus and the Upper Rhine Graben (Danil’chenko, 1960; Pharisat, 1991; Micklich, 1998; Pharisat and Micklich, 1998; Prokofiev, 2009; Bannikov, 2010).

    Jurrasic thing

    Hi, i've been organizing my fossils and stumbled upon something i can't name. Can you help me identify this? Oxfordian age, found near Cracow in limestone quarry.
  20. As the winter this year is not very harsh, on Saturday I ventured to a location quite close to my home - I learned about it during the last fossil fair It's a sand pit - well, sort of, as it extracts sand from the bottom of the Vistula River - and according to the fossil seller who told me about it, it is the place where one can find Pleistocene fossils. We were warned to stay clear of the pipes, because of falling stones, but we were allowed to browse the piles of whatever was filtered out from the sand
  21. Hello everyone, I recently received two pieces of brachiopod fossils from Poland, both come from the Eifelian in Grzegorzowice. The first piece contains a number of small productids, I am not sure about the IDs but they do look quite similar to Poloniproductus varians that I have seen come from that area so I am wondering if that is what they are. And the next brachiopod is some kind of Athyrid? I wasn't able to find any similar species from this location. I would appreciate any help with identifying these, Thank you for looking!

    Alternative combinations: Diaphus moravicus and Leuciscus moravicus. Taxonomy according to Fossilworks.org. Description of Oligophus moravicus according to Přikryl et al. 2017, pp. 219-220: “The following description is based on the almost complete specimen Tv 1023a and its counterpart specimen Tv 1023b. They show a preorbital length much shorter than orbit diameter. The head is rounded, with an antero-dorsally oriented mouth. The lower jaw joint is located far posterior to the posterior-most margin of the orbit. The maxillary is slender throughout. There is no indication of a supram
