    Help id’ing a fossil

    Hey all! Looking for assistance Identifying this fossil. Found in west Texas, Brewster county. Appreciate any suggestions!
  3. I don't remember where i found it but i guess it's from the only place i have ever find fossils (rudist fragments and echinoids). These come from Phthiotis, Greece. I know nothing about fossils so i need your help. This rock has a intense smell just like the other fossils i mentioned. However i don't know if this means that this is a fossil too or that it's just the way the rocks smell at the place where i found it. Could it be also a rudist? The only reason i'm not sure is that the rudist fragments i have found has this wavy shape at their top just like this rudist image As you

    Texas rule ?

    This was found as a clast in what I believe to be undisturbed marl in the bank of the creek which runs between the defunct Arlington Archosaur site and the rail road track at the south end of Euless Maine St.. Other clasts of coalified wood were fairly common there. Do I get to declare this rudist debris ? Using, well, you know, the rule.
  5. Hello, sure I can not beat the lovely pics, scenery and fossils posted recently by @RuMert, but I also had a nice fossil encounter two days ago (10/02/2021). After prospecting for Pb-Zn-Ba with friends from Lower Austria in the area of Peggau, I decided to visit Römaskogel in Kainach again (just 20 km away), especially to take home a big rudist specimen still waiting there. Arriving there, I decided to check out the surroundings of two recently (some weeks ago) found Vaccinites (quite a distance away from the already known occurrences), on the way to that specimen. Just 50 m away fro
  6. Hey ya'll Some finds from a last Sunday. The tooth was found buried in gravel, and was the one result from 2 hours combing a single gravel bar. The day before, that same spot, was extremely productive, funnily enough. That's just how it goes The mammal tooth is small, and may very well be modern, but teeth from various Pleistocene fauna have been found around here that were still white. Just thought it was worth checking. Also, the I'm thinking the rudist piece might be Durania austinensis, based on an ID I got on a similar, larger rudist piece before. Tho
  7. Hello, I would like to ask if someone is able and would like to look up the derivation/meaning of the name of the rudist genus "Vaccinites". It was introduced by Fischer (1887) in this work: It could mean something like "cow horn" (Vacca = cow). But I am not sure and can not find something really definitive with google. Thank you very much for your help! Franz Bernhard
  8. Hello, several weeks ago, I presented a rudist recovery "operation" from the Afling-formation of the Gosau-group of Kainach (Upper Cretaceous): Well, the same day I have discovered the rudist zone featured above, I have also discovered a rudist zone about 100-200 m stratigraphically deeper. It is confined to an about 1 m thick, very dark limestone bed rich in various rudist and echinoid remains. The limestone belongs to the Geistthal-formation, considering the limestone is still located within the sequence with some red clastic rocks, suggesting strong terrestrial influence i
  9. Hello! Having discovered some new rudist occurrences in the lower part of the upper Santonian - lower Campanian clastic-marine Afling-formation at Römaskogel hill near Kainach, western Styria, Austria, about 6 weeks ago. Here I would like to present a very specific visit to one of these sites at 05/15/2021. It was aimed to recover some more parts of already known rudists from the outcrop at site #30. Here we go! Approaching Römaskogel, the hill in the middle. Its 1006 m high, the snowy mountain in the background is the Gleinalpe mountain, nearly 2000 m high:

    Hello! Found yesterday, although I'm not even sure what it is. I put rudists in the tag section since someone told me if you don't know what it is, then it's probably a rudist (especially in Lebanon). I would also like to mention that those patterns are not only on one side, rather they're everywhere even on the small pieces that fell off while i separated it from a bigger rock.
  12. This website looks too professional for me. I single handedly picked up nice specimens back in 2004-2007. I would like to post pics but since I am new to forum , I can not. Do you not realize some of the best fossils are picked up by layman ? At any rate my specimens have been hidden away for the last 10 years. Now the public will be able to view them. I have a vacant corner lot in downtown Bertram , TX where they are being placed around 2 large oak trees. I guess I just wanted to share info so that one day I might be able to post pics. Thank you for your time and hope to participate in the
  13. having been unable to go out a full day to search for fossils for several months due to health problems, thanks to a recent improvement I went yesterday about 100 km from my home to see a site where rudists were found. The first fossil encountered was a huge colony of cone-shaped bryozoans which had fallen and overturned in a depression. (can be 150kg?). I forgot to take my centimeter scale, so in the photos there is my foot, my hand or my fingers .... Then, I found a rock rich in small Exogyra and rare Rhynchonella. Finally, the rudists were there, in a wall (only for the

    Two Urban Fossils

    Hi!! Two mystery fossils on a wall in San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain). Other fossils in the same rock are Neridea. In the first photo, I wonder about the little "cells" that can be seen. Is this coral or something?? Looks different from other corals I've seen, and the shape is so strange! The second photo is a large shell? A rudist? A gastropod? Thanks for your help!!! :-) Elizabeth
