  1. Hello together. on a past Holiday I stumbled upon an interesting place at the coast of southern Portugal. On top of the cliffs there was something that looked like desert pavement to me, including ventifacts, not typical for the modern climate of the region, so maybe a re-opened facies? About 2-3 meters below that in a gully we found a lot of coral fragments looking like remnants of a fossil reef. Sadly I did not have a camera with me and can only show you some samples I picked up. Can someone give me an ID for the corals and an age estimate? Geological map shows spots of q
  2. Hello, I'm curious if someone can help with this find. We went to look at the dinosaur footprints in Praia Grande, in Colares Portugal. While at the beach we found this possible fossil. I'm really wondering if someone can confirm if it is a bone? I did the lick test and it did seem to have some stick to it. Thank you for your time!

  15. I recently purchased a Theropoda indet. tooth from the Lourinhã Formation of Lourinhã, Portugal. I wasn't expecting much initially since it looked like an incomplete tooth and the seller tends to go the safe route with their IDs if it's too vague. But, the serration count was similar to that of the Marshosaurus-like megalosaurid teeth based on @Troodon's guide on the dinosaurs of Portugal. Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but I wanted to see if anyone else had some input before I slap that good old theropoda indet. label on the display. The distal serrations is split d

    Ordovician bryozoa +X?

    Hello dear fellow forum members, I just aquired a nice little hashplate (if I can call it that?) from Portugal. The information given is the following: Ralfina lusitanica and Helopora sp., upper Ordivician (hírnantian fauna) Queixoperra Member of Cabeço do Peão Formation, Amendoa-Maçao Portugal. What caught my eye is the rib-like structure on the right/ top right. I am not saying these are ribs, just describing the shape. Does anyone have any idea what this might be? Thanks and Aloha, J
