    Vertebra Queensland

    Looking through my usual matrix I came across this partial vertebra that has me stumped. Both sections were sitting together in the matrix so assume they are part of the same vertebra. Definitely not fish so some type of reptile ? Hopping the process end is diagnostic enough to determine species. Second piece in post below Mike

    Pterosaur vertebra?

    Seller says it is probably a pterosaur vertebrae as it is the right size and was found next to a pterosaur tooth. Is it? Found in KemKem Morocco. (Ruler is in CM)

    Help with Laos tooth ID (Spinosaurid?)

    Hi! I have a tooth from the Gres Superieurs formation of Laos and I'm struggling with the ID. The person I acquired the tooth from suggested it was an undescribed spinosaurid - possibly Baryonychinae - due to the striations in the enamel. I'm not sure though, so I was hoping someone with more knowledge of teeth from Loas might be able to help me out. My first thoughts upon seeing the tooth were that it was likely to be a Pterosaur or fish tooth. It's certainly not Ichthyovenator as it's far too narrow. It's 0.88 inches long. Thanks in advance for any help! IMG
  4. How does one reliably differentiate Moroccan Pterosaur teeth from similarly elongated fish teeth? Are there any grooves, striations etc I should be looking out for under a loupe? (Image credit: AJ Plai, http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php...)
  5. I love to start a thread to show what you can see with "black light", or as we say in Germany, blue light / UV-Light. I love to use it in preparation, you see finest bones, parts of crustaceen and many other things only by using blue light, and not without. First I show a pic of a small pterosaur-wing from Solnhofen I am just preparing. I did it with blue light, you see why... Without it could be that you destroy bones or scratch them, but with..., you know when you have to stop! Show us your results, I love to see what you see under black-light
  6. Here some photos of my new model : Anurognathus ammoni This tiny pterosaur sometimes called "frog face" was about 35 cm wingspan . I was highly inspired from Qilong artwork for the skull. :p Enjoy !

    Pterosaur bone ?

    Hello again, I also found this bone, both ends are missing, but it seems hollow and the "split" in the end looks characteristic. A couple of years ago I found a pterosaur bone at this same location (Helmsdale, Scotland, late Jurassic, marine sediments): http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/97935-tiny-bone-from-scotland/ I wonder if this is pterosaur as well. I noticed the same "split end" on pterosaur bones, for instance the tibiotarsus. What do you think? Regards, Niels

    Pterosaur tooth?

    Hey all, Just got these teeth and was wondering if you guys can ID a species to them? Here are the deets… Age: Late Cretaceous. Locality:- Fluvial sandstone deposits, Kem Kem Formation. West of Hamada du Guir. Errachidia Province. MOROCCO. They were labelled as coloborhynchus moroccensis but I thought the coloborhynchus was only found in UK.I’m not really familiar with Moroccan locality to this detail other than the “Kem Kem beds” so maybe my locality provided narrows the ID possibilities? they sort of look like sirrocopteryx/ coloborhynchus tee
  9. Pterosaur material is always something I’m interested in adding to my collection through purchases, so this following piece is something that’s been on my wishlist for a while now. The seller labels this fossil an Alcione humerus from the Khouribga phosphates in Morocco, which seems reasonable to me as the bone compares well to the genus’ holotype. But because this wouldn’t be a cheap purchase and because of the questionable authenticity of many Moroccan fossils, I thought it would be wise to see if there are any red flags with this bone. Specifically, I’m wondering if

    Yixian Chinese Pterosaur

    Hello, I have been offered a Chinese pterosaur tooth--from Yixian Formation, Liaoning, China. There are a lot of toothed pterosaurs from there, so I guess narrowing down an actual species will be difficult. But I wish to make sure that it looks pterosaur rather than being something else. Unfortunately the matrix was split and reglued, so it has a repair down the middle. It is 2cm long. Seller is in Taiwan, so export of the fossil is ok.

    unambigous Pterosaur feathers?

    This looks as if someone finally found well preserved feathers of the branched type on a Pterosaur! https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-022-04622-3

    pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)

    From the album: Holzmaden

    This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ... Some more pictures:

    Potential Pterosaur tooth

    Hello all I found this tooth in cretaceous marine material in NW Queensland. This tooth is extremely fragile and had a bit of a disaster during the prep of the tooth as it basically exploded into 6 bits which was extremely disappointing. I was able to repair it however as you can see this was not done perfectly. I did at first assume this was fish however i noted the root structure did not appear to be fish. There was an example of a very similar tooth found in NW Queensland that was ID as Pterosaur which is why I think this is what it maybe, if

    Please ID these!

    I am pretty sure these are claws, but I am not at all sure. The first one had a tip ,like the drawn lines indicate, but some jerk broke it off. Doesn’t down the shaft on the last one look like Fluking?

    Pterosaur Wyoming

    Hello, Found on internet an Pterosaur tooth from Albany County, Wyoming - USA, Morrison Formation. What do you other people tink about it. Is it Pterosaur? And what about the species? It is named Pteranodon, but that cant be right.
  18. Hi Community, I am not quite sure what my latest addition to my fossil collection really is. Kryptodrakon? Kunpengopterus antipollicatus? Confuciusornis? (But there is no tail and no indication of feathers) Monkeydactyl”? Please help me in identifying what it really is. Size: 12" by 10" Many thanks, Peter

    My pterosaur collection

    Figured I'd start a thread to post my pterosaur collection in, since they are my favorites. This first lot are all from China, Yixian Formation.
  22. Hi! I was wondering if this fossil Pterosaur is real. This is a Pterosaur bone from Khouribga, Morocco, species name is Alcione elainus and is from the upper Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) Anyone that can tell me if this is faked or restored in any way?

    Pterosaur bone id [Alcione sp.?]

    Hi there, I'm looking to add a pterosaur bone to my collection and I think I've found one, but would like confirmation from some of the more knowledgeable people on here, if possible . I'm told it is an Alcione sp. limb bone (nyctosaurid). 9.4 inches long. Bone looks hollow on the inside. Location is Oued Zem, Morocco - Ouled Abdoun Basin (Maastrichtian - Phosphate beds). Have you seen something similar? Is this a pterosaur ulna? Thanks!
