    Pterosaur bone?

    Just purchased this bone fragment that was sold as from an Azhdarchid pterosaur. I know it's not complete and it has a few repairs, but is it possible to tell if it's indeed from a Pterosaur. And if so, what part of the body might it be from? Wing bone? Toe bone? Locality: Kem Kem Beds, Morocco, El Begaa Bone size: 156 x 11 x 7 mm Weight: 14 g

    Another Kem Kem Pterosaur

    Unbelievable pterosaur diversity in this part of North Africa. This paper describes a unique small, long-beaked pterosaur from the Kem Kem Group of Morocco. Does not appear to be named. Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667120303293
  3. Hello together, I am proud to present another one of @lormouths beautiful skeletons I have the pleasure to assemble. At first I intended to build it in the nice quadrupedal position from "Dragons of the air" 1901, but it seems that the shoulder girdle doesnt allow it, especially the right arm that is held closely to the torso. Of course it could be depending on cartilage, but atl east looking at Laurents detailed replica bones, it looks wrong to put it in that pose. I missed the opportunity to take a foto of the neatly packed set of bones I found in my christmas parcel. Tha
  4. Hi, I have been offered this Pterosaur bone that looks possibly like a Pterosaur metatarsal but even after getting more photos of the fossil, I am not too sure if there has been work done to it, and this is why I want to post it here and get some opinions before doing anything else. I have some small concerns about the joint part. It comes from the Kem Kem. Thanks and I hope the photos are sufficient to determine how real it is!

    Someone help me

    I purchased this claw and the seller had it as pterosaur BUT also said it could be anzu oviraptor but he felt confident it was pterosaur. It was found in Hellcreek, I really know nothing about fossils,and the photos i am attaching are from the listing. I am happy either way no matter what it ends up being. And thank you for any knowledge you guys can provide. Also the size was 0.39in

    Rare Find For NSR!

    I had a good hunt at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a nice variety and possibly the first Pterosaur limb bone ever found at NSR.

    Azhdarchid dentary bone?

    I trust this specimen pretty well, but I just want to be sure. The seller says it is an azhdarchid dentary bone found in kem kem.

    Pterosaur or Fish Tooth? Pawpaw Fm

    Took another trip out to explore the other half of the Pawpaw site about a week ago and came away with some great finds I will be posting soon. Most of the things I brought back weren't too hard to pin an ID on. This little guy has been giving me some trouble though. I know that pterosaur teeth are found in the Pawpaw a bit more often than other formations around here. This preconception may be clouding my judgement a bit, but I have a suspicion that this could be a pterosaur instead of a fish tooth (enchodus). I haven't found many teeth in the Pawpaw so far, so I'm not well acquainted with ho

    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
  14. 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...)
  15. 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
  16. 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
  19. 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?

    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:
