    Permian Age Fossil?

    Hi there everyone! Ive got a tricky one today. I came across this listing for a “Trimerorhachis fossil” and I was wondering If y’all would be able to help me properly identify the specimen and possibly identify from what part of the body it comes from. The seller specifies that it was found in the Ryan Formation near Waurika, Oklahoma and claims that the bones belong to a member of the family Trimerorhachidae. Permian fossils are personally some of my favorites, but I’m not completely able to distinguish what this fossil could be. My only guess is that it coul

    Salamander fossil?

    Could this be a genuine salamander fossil?

    Cenozoic salamander

    This has bugged me for years. It's a small amphibian or reptile ( 8cm long) found at Fossil OR at the high school site. The strata is tuffaceous siltstone famous for leaf impressions. It's part of the John Day formation, oligocene in age. I have read that salamanders are occasionally found there but cannot find any more information as to species or anatomy. I was even wondering if it could be a snake with vestigial femurs. I'm hoping that someone can provide me some specifics so I can finally finish cataloging this specimen.
  4. This is a track of a Carboniferous era salamander from the Union Chapel Mine in Alabama. I forgot the species, but I was told they could get five feet long. I didn't find this track, a member of the Alabama Paleontology Society found it and gave it to me during our visit the mine. I did find one of these, mine isn't as nice looking.

    Hi I found this on a walk today, I’m not a fossil hunter but thought it looked interesting. Can anyone give me some idea of when it was formed and what it is? It measures approximately 10” or 26cm long when measured round the rock. Thanks
  6. A new exciting paper regarding early lissamphibian evolution is available online: Rainer R. Schoch; Ralf Werneburg; Sebastian Voigt (2020). A Triassic stem-salamander from Kyrgyzstan and the origin of salamanders. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 117. doi:10.1073/pnas.2001424117. https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2020/05/05/2001424117 For a long time, a bonafide salamander from the Triassic remained elusive in the fossil record, although the recent description of Chinlestegophis has helped shed light on early caecilian evo

  8. I have for trade miocene salamanders from Bosnia. The images are of lower quality, since they are also more accessible for exchange. I also have other specimens, better quality or natural untreated. My interest are megalodon ( Charcarodon) teeth, miocene fossils ( echinoids, crabs, big gastropod,bivalves) all kind of interesting specimens. Im also interesting for fossils which I could use for compare with european fossils. If you have something interesting please contact me.Thanks!

    Merritt Island Matrix - Fused tail?

    I was digging around in Sacha's wonderful Merritt Island matrix the other day and found this. First let me apologize for the fuzziness of some of the images. My curiosity over-road my patience. Because of the ball and socket, I'm thinking this is a salamander caudal vertebra? If that is correct, would this be a vertebra that would break in an effort to avoid predators? Or could this be where the tail grew back? Mind you, these are just guesses. Perhaps it's not even from a salamander. I will try to get better photos, but this little bugger is so small, I'm having a hard time getting clear imag

  12. Here is a Melanerpeton humbergense. I acquired this lower Permian branchiosaurid recently from a well-known dealer in the Netherlands. I had been eyeing this specimen for some time and decided now would be a good time as ever to pull the trigger on it. Even with some bone missing it was a nice price for a nice creature that probably would have been about 12 centimeters long in life or close to it. Much of the fun of fossils for me is to find and read as much material on them as I can. The most prominent recent paper on Melanerpeton is TIMELESS DESIGN: COLORED PATTERN OF SKIN IN EAR

    Greater siren verts?

    Hi all, Last weekend at the fossil fair in Ede I bought a big box full of great fossils, but i need your help with some of them. Here are some verts, and the seller said they were greater siren verts (Siren lacertina). Is that true, or are they from another animal? They were found in Florida (US), but no exact location was given. They are apparently Pleistocene in age; and were collected in 2011. I made closeups of the most complete one. Thanks for your help!
