  1. I just had the opportunity to purchase a kimberella fossil for a good price but backed out at the last second because the seller was based in Russia and I wasn't sure about the legality surrounding White Sea specimens being imported to Canada where I live. I'm always wary of fossils being sold out of China and Russia. Has anyone purchased White Sea specimens directly from Russia? And what is the legality of them? It's hard to find a direct answer online.
  2. Hello everyone!)) Need help of paleontologists and paleoichthyologists with identification of eocene shark teeth from Russia. I'm not professional, just a fan and rooky, so I choose possible species options for every tooth, according to books and scientific publications which I have. Hope I make right something at least. Be glad and thankful if somebody will help me figure it out)).

  4. My Jurassic Park now heads across the pond to England and Germany. Dinosaur material from these countries is not common like North America and in fact very difficult to obtain. Theropod material is extremely rare and most remains are fragments. Most of my material from England comes from the coast of two areas The Isle of Wight and East Sussex. Material from these area comprises the Wealden Super Group (Hasting+Wealden+Weld Clay) and is early Cretaceous from the Valanginian to Barremian Stage (140-125mya). Yellow - Hasting Group , Green - Weald Clay Red - Wealden Grouip
  5. I recently acquired two Cretaceous lamniform shark teeth that I'm trying to identify. The first one, from Russia, was sold as Cardabiodon sp., but I'm curious if that's correct or if it's something else. The second tooth, from Texas, didn't come with an ID. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! #1 - Cardabiodon? sp. This tooth is from the Cenomanian of Russia and was found near Fedorovka Village, Tambov Region. The tooth measures 28.51 mm on the slant and 14.91 mm at its widest across the root. #2 - Unidentified

    Gastropod from russia

    I found this fossil gastropod on an auction site and I really liked it. But the information is a bit confusing. On the title it states that it is Cretaceous but in the description of the seller it says "Cretaceous-Oxfordian-160 MYA". Oxfordian is a period from the Jurassic, not the Cretaceous. The locality & species (theres 2 species) Location: Kostroma Region Russia Species: Pictavia laevigata & Exelissa quinariia .

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    Two pieces, roughly weighing 7 and 4 grams respectively. Both are mined from the Rivne region of Ukraine's Rivne Oblast, and had a little to no oxidized layer, in comparison to amber mined from the nearby (roughly 50 km) Klesiv Deposit.

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    Roughly 12g specimen of amber mined from the Klesiv Deposit of the Rivne region in the Rivne Oblast of Ukraine. It was originally coated in a 2mm red oxidized crust, typical of this locality. It is believed that the presence of this crust is an indicator that amber from this particular locality underwent little to no re-deposition throughout its diagenesis, and oddly contains the majority of described insect-included Rovno material.

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    19.0g specimen of hand-polished amber from the Rivne region of Ukraine. It contains numerous botanical debris, although I have not observed any definitive insect inclusions. It is what would be termed a "run"; this specimen has over 12 successive layers that would have run down the side of the tree (the depicted piece would be properly-oriented if rotated 90˚).

    Rovno Amber (Mezhigorje Fm., 33.9-28.1 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    83.8g raw amber mined from the Rivne region in Ukraine. The "eye hole" was likely formed when the organic matter (i.e., tree branch) the resin encased, was likely dissolved/washed away during the resin's diagenesis and redeposition (Baltic and most Rovno material is generally believed to have been redeposited).

    Some fossils from Russia

    Hey guys, My name is Alex, I'm from Moscow, Russia. I'm extremely amateur in paleontology so can you please help me to identify some fossils from my collection. I found these fossils about 20 years ago in a small sand quarry 130 km west from Moscow. If you search in google maps the nearest train station is: o.p. 133 km, nearest villlage is Blagoveshchenskoye and Kozino. The fossils were maybe about 2-4 meters deep in the ground (I actually don't remember). The dimension of the first fossil (black one) is 2.4x0.8 cm, the second (grey) is 3.7x2.3 cm. I've always really wanted to know

    Plesiosaur or pliosaur?

    Hi everyone I came across these teeth on our favorite site. It's listed as plesiosaur and ichthyosaur, but could the plesiosaur be a pliosaur tooth? The ridges are quite pronounced.. The teeth in this set were both found in the Seversk Sandstone in Belgorod, Kursk, Russia

    Dolichopodidae indet.

    Taxonomy according to fossilworks.org. Diagnosis according to Sawabi et al., 2018 p. 7: “Small to medium slender flies; body length 1–9 mm; most species with greenish to blue metallic luster, while others dull yellow, brown or black in color. Eyes large and prominent. Antennae aristate. Ocellar bristles and outer vertical bristles well developed in most species. Legs long and slender. Wings clear or patterned with darker areas towards the wing margin; wing venation reduced; three radial veins R1, R2 + 3, R4 + 5 present; posterior basal cell and discoidal cell always fused; anal cell alway
  16. Hello everyone, I recently got some fossils from Russia, some plant remains from Perm Krai where I grew up and a couple of Productid brachiopods from Sverdlovsk Oblast. They are from the Artinskian stage of the Permian period, one is around 2.5cm in width while the other even though incomplete is absolutely gigantic, the largest I have in my collection. I am not great at identifying Productid brachiopods and the Permian is probably the period I have least experience with within the Paleozoic so I have not been able to ID them myself. The large one looks similar to some Reticula

    Almost micro 3

    Hi all! This is another report from Oxfordian quarries in the vicinity of Moscow. Previous 1 (Peski) Previous 2 (Timonino) Peski again. If you read my fossil sites overview, you know that Peski quarry is a unique site where you could find lots of Carboniferous fossils, Middle Jurassic dinosaurs, calcitic Callovian ammonites and very good Oxfordian gastropods. The latter are the most numerous and easier to search for. My trip took place in April and was mostly a success with a good variety of finds
  18. Greetings, Sorry, if slightly off-topic. Found this tooth-like thing near Vladivostok, Russia, 10-20 meters from sea line, among remains of an early iron age culture (800-300 BC). Any help would be much appreciated!
  19. Hi all! You know I visit my favorite Volga river site (Ulyanovsk Oblast) more or less often, but this time I decided to give a try to another well-known Jurassic-Cretaceous site on the Volga river, located in the nearby Samara Oblast (city of Syzran). It's famous for its iridescent ammonites as well as marine reptile finds. I hoped to discover a real alternative to the Ulyanovsk site particularly as the conditions are very similar: surface collecting on river bank. Here the Ulyanovsk site is to the north, Syzran to the south. The latter is home to two distinct locations

    Russian fossil sites

    Hi all In this topic I'll give a brief overview of Russian fossil sites and typical fossils. I focus on the Jurassic as my main field of interest. The method used here is analyzing regional and temporary breakdowns of the number of specimens, shown by amateurs on Russian fossil resources, mainly ammonit.ru (about 40.000 finds). Unfortunately the overview has a inevitable bias towards the sites and fossil types attractive to the largest number of amateurs and downgrades those that are remote, less popular or less productive. The material is presented from an amateur's point of

    Pliosaurs In Russia?

    Does anyone know about the occurrence of Pliosaurs in Russia? I recently acquired a lovely pliosaur tooth from Calvin from this forum, and the information given was: Polyptychodon interruptus Stary Oskol, Russia Upper Cretaceous I am curious because firstly, every single of this type of tooth are said to have came from Stary Oskol of Russia, and secondly they are all consistently listed as species Polyptychodon interruptus. However, I am not aware of any scientific papers or paleontology database listing Polyptychodon as a pliosaur from Russia. Polyptychodon is instead found in England an
  23. I just received this Woolly Mammoth Tooth from Russia and am sharing it with the forum for discussion. It appears to have been coated with a clear substance like poly urethane (At the tip of one root is a solidified drop). The specimen measures approximately 7”x6”x3”
  24. Hi all! Those who follow my reports know I was planning another trip to Ulyanovsk in spring. Well, here is the report, in continuation of 1, 2 and 3. This time I was on the shore for 3 days. In short, the weather was fine, the ice abundant, the competition high and the finds scarce. The trip felt more like an extravagant outing than a productive fossil hunt

    Russian Sand Tigers

    I purchased some shark teeth recently, all or most of which appear to be sand tigers, from Russia and am hoping some folks on here might be able to help me identify them. The information from the seller, who is in Russia but didn't collect these himself, is that these are Cretaceous teeth found in chalk deposits on the banks of the Don River, near Kalach-on-Don, Volgograd region, Russia. He doesn't have any more info or know the exact geologic layer. I haven't been able to find much information from searching online, but using the app Rockd, it does appear that the geology in the a
