    Hello! Help please to identify this tooth. In my opinioin it is not Dasyatis, but I dont know which Genus it is... Radius ~ 1 mm. Middle Miocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    Bizarre Hell Creek Denticle?

    Hi all. I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything on the forum, but now that I'm back from college I'm planning on being more active. Today I wanted to post this odd fossil I found this past summer at a Hell Creek formation microsite in eastern Montana. I've never seen anything quite like it before, but my guess is that it's some odd denticle from a cartilaginous fish of some variety OR alternatively it could just be an odd fish tooth (maybe pharyngeal?). It measures about 4 mm from base to tip and a little bit over 1 mm at its widest. Any input would be appreciated. -Noel
  3. Hello! Help please to identify a genus. I didnt found before such teeth... I saw some teeth on the ealsmo.com with some similarity (planktivorous rays) but they have others crown... Length: 5 mm. Age: Middle Miocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    Ray Dermal Scutes

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    The top two are ray dermal scutes, they are like scales embedded in the skin of the ray. Ignore the bottom two.

    Ray Spine

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These are fragments of stingray tail spines, usually assigned to the genus Dasyatis.
  7. ClearLake

    Pteromylaeus sp.

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    Another tooth of a ray from the family Myliobatidae.
  8. ClearLake

    Rhinoptera sp.

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    This is a lateral tooth from the ray genus Rhinoptera.
  9. ClearLake

    "Myliobatis"

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These ray teeth are often assigned to the genus Myliobatis but other authors dispute this designation. They are certainly some ember of the family Myliobatidae.
  10. ClearLake

    Rhinoptera sp.

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These ray teeth are best identified by there profile shape.
  11. ClearLake

    Aetobatus sp.

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These ray teeth fit together to form a broad, flat crushing dental plate. The lowers have a distinctive V shape and the uppers have rounded, slightly swept back ends.
  12. ClearLake

    Dasyatis sp.

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    Stingray teeth that are most commonly assigned to the genus Dasyatis.
  13. Well, I know I said my last post on these tiny fossils would be my last, but I was wrong. Everyone was very helpful with the previous questions (as usual) so I'm back with a couple more tiny teeth out of the Gainesville Creek matrix that is generally Miocene aged Hawthorn Fm. All of these are pretty small, most just a few mm's across. You can see previous posts here for other info or ID's: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/119097-gainesville-shark-teeth-question/&tab=comments#comment-1305867 http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/114209-north-florid
  14. Took the relatively short trip down to Purse State Park last weekend and had quite a bit of success! Best find was certainly a fairly large chuck of what I think is turtle shell, along with a very much alive turtle that rested with us for our lunch before returning to the water. The dream of finding anything marine mammal or a somewhat complete ray plate remains for next time!

    Ray Tooth

    From the album: A.C.'s Cretaceous New Jersey

    Brachyrhizodus wichitaensis (Roemer) Left Ramanessin Brook, Right Big Brook
  16. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey

    Unknown ray

    Here is another Cabezon taxa that I am having a hard time identifying. Is it Pseudohypolophus? Rhombodus? Myladephus? Something else? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Randy

    Vertebrae clarification

    Hello, below are photos of some verts I found at Big Brook Park in Marlboro NJ. (Late cretaceous, Mount Laurel formation). I thought they were both ray verts, upon taking another look however I noticed there are some slight differences in their build. I wanted to see if anyone had any clarification for me. I've checked the usual sites, njfossils.net and njfossils.com, but I think I don't know how to interpret different features. I took photos of each face (anterior, posterior),and tops and bottoms (dorsal/ventral sides). Both were found, to my knowledge, in the Mount Laurel format

    Unknown Teeth from Peace River, Florida

    I have two unknown fossils one being a tooth and the other I believe is a ray mouthplate/jaw bone. Sorry about the photo quality on the mouth plate it had a strange shape. Thanks
  20. Some of my fossil hunting trips take place at home breaking down and looking through matrix obtained from collectors worldwide. This matrix came from the Cretaceous (Campanian) of Hallencourt France. Most of the nicer specimens that I found in this matrix were in the 1.5mm to 4 or 5mm size range. Almost all of the larger teeth were damaged (missing roots, broken root lobes, crown damage). The matrix is a very hard chalk which requires a pick ax or jack hammer to get the matrix from the formation which adds to the tooth damage. I am posting below pictures of a small number of the nicer and more

    Dental plate - Eagle Ray?

    I found this yesterday on a fla beach. Appears to be fossilized dental plate from a ray. Can anyone help me verify the ID and estimate the age. Im guessing based on internet photos.

    Ray tooth?

    Hello! Help please to identify this fossil. I think that it is tooth of some Ray. May be, Torpedo..? On a second photo - together with a male Dasyatis. Max. radius - 1,5 mm. Middle Miocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    ID help please

    Recovered the below bone from the Peace River a few weeks ago and put it aside thinking it was a partial bird bone or small reptile. On closer examination I can see serrations running along the length of the two sides. This now has me thinking Ray barb. The specimen is 26mm long by 10mm at the wide joint end. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
  24. In February, I sifted at the shoreline on Caspersen Beach and Venice Beach, Florida. Finds include: (left) a crab claw & 2 ray tail barbs..... plus a variety of small shark teeth and ray mouth plates.
  25. My question is exactly in the title, Can you identify ray teeth without locality info? I got some as a gift a long time ago and have no information on location and age and was wondering if its possible to identify to genus or even family
