  1. Everyone please use an internationally recognised scale in your images. Coins aren’t good enough. How big is s rupee, or a farthing? I dunno. Of course a marmite jar is the same size worldwide Vegimite is NOT internationally recognised. I hope you’re taking notes @Jesuslover340
  2. Good evening all and thanks again for everyone's help and patience with my finds....to that end, here's another one. Stark shale between Winterset and Bethany Falls limestone Pennsylvanian. I'm guessing a fish scale or shark denticle (it appears to be inversely ridged or elevated in deeper layers). I would still like to clean it a little better (the brown-filled divit) but wanted some thoughts prior-it will help me decide how to clean it. Thanks all!! Bone
  3. Looking for conodonts, I found and meticulously cleaned this object-at first I thought insect wing, but then fish scale, then plant, then, nuthin special. Thoughts again appreciated!! What say ye? (Stark shale, between Winterset and Bethany Falls, Pennsylvanian) . Bone
  4. Hello everyone, The Osteolepis macrolepidotus fossil I recently acquired came with a little surprise, It has a a fairly large impression of a cycloid scale with it, I was wondering if it was possible to identify it. I know lungfishes have these types of scales so maybe Dipterus? I am really not sure, I have been trying to look at the scales of fish found there but have not found many good references. The scale is about 1 cm in length. Any help would be appreciated.
  5. Dear Members, three years ago I found a small fossil in the Ames Limestone Formation (Pennsylvanian in age) exposed in Frick Park, Pittsburgh, PA. The Ames Limestone preserves a rich assemblage of marine invertebrate fossils (crinoids, corals, etc.). On the other hand vertebrates are much more rare (as far as I know). Originally only the tip was exposed, then I had a fossil preparator work on it, so that the whole specimen is now visible. Close up of the tip at 20X It is definetely fragmentary, but I don't know what it is. I wo

    Fish scale?

    Hello, I found this fossil a while ago in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I have found many catfish barbs in that area, as well as crocodile fossils, so I am relatively sure that this is a fish scale, however, I cannot find any references online, so I don't know what this scale belongs to. It's attached to a larger piece of bone. (About 1cm in diameter)

    How To Weigh a Dinosaur

    Are these rhizodont fish parts?

    Hello everyone. Few weeks ago I was in Klaipeda district Western Lithuania and found these two fish fossils- scale is about 3 cm diameter, jaw fragment is 1.6 cm length. I think these fossils belong to some species of rhizodont fish, but i am not sure if the species would be more Late Devonian or Carboniferous in age. Please help me to identify the genera of these remains if it is possible, I need to know what the precise age this freshwater limestone boulder belongs to. Best Regards Domas

    I need help with a scale like fossil!

    Hello! I recently went to Grand Ledge, Michigan. This area is part of the Carboniferous, and more specifically the Pennsylvanian period. I found this fossil that appears to be scales. It’s not an imprint either, the scales are elevated. In the surrounding rock there are cordiate fossils and some kind of clam, I found ferns in the area as well. I believe that it was a swamp land way back when these were all alive. An ID on what kind of plant or maybe even fish scales would be awesome! Thank you!

    Lepisosteidae scale in coprolite

    From the album: Coprolites

  16. Going through last year's finds I found a few things that I don't recognize. All are from Pennsylvanian marine limestone. The first few all appear to be fish material of some kind. I find plenty of chondrichthyan teeth, but none of these look like any teeth I've seen, although they may be partials. Possibly some kind of bony fish scale? All images were taken under a microscope, no scale cube but they all are about 1/2" at the widest point. #1) #2)
  17. Hello, I have a Phareodus Fossil. Its one foot long. I found it on August 12th of this year in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Today, I noticed something I would like some input on. I took a look at it and I noticed what looks like a pile of scales in the belly of the Phareodus. I am attaching a picture of both the full fossil and the area I am referring to. (I just noticed a Knightia is in the fossil also) I know Phareodus were carnivorous, and have big teeth, but what do you guys think? Are these scales in the stomach? Its last meal? Jared
  18. I find these items quite regularly in the Cookiecutter Creek micro-matrix. Mostly, these are smaller or partial but this one with a length of 11 mm turned up yesterday and I figured it would be a good specimen to try to use for an identification. I say tooth-like because of the shiny black enamel-like surface covering 3/4 of the item. The shape of these items is pretty consistent with the "topside" being shiny, convex and mostly smooth except for apparent "growth rings" and the "underside" of the item showing more texture on the enameled surface and a concavity on the non-black end. Is t

    Fishes scale (Ukraine) ?

    Hello! Could it be scale? Western Ukraine, Lviv region. Thanks in advance!
  20. Hello, On the internet I found and bought this fossil fish scale from the Kem Kem formation. Unfortunately, I do not know which fish she comes from, as she looks different than any other fish scales from Kem Kem that I know. A box on the sheet is 5x5mm, the scale is ca. 1,7cm long. I hope you can help me with that. Thank you in advance, Jesco
  21. Fish scale, vertebrae, squilla scale, some kind of plants Location: Pohang, south Korea Formation: Duho formation Age: middle miocene
  22. So this material is from the Clayton formation in Arkansas. It is Paleocene in age. We are finding a lot of these flat pieces which I at first thought might be crab shells but now I think they must be scales from armored fish. Sometimes they are very thin and small - these examples are larger ones. If I am correct does anyone know if we can tell which fish they are from? (tape measure in view is in mm) The lone piece is from the same matrix as the others. After cleaning it up I would have guessed it was just a larger piece of armor but while I was removing it both ends broke o

    Printable Photographic Scale?

    Hello, I was wondering, before using a generic one found online, if any forum member designed a printable photografic scale on his own and would like to share it. Thanks, hopefully this is the right section to ask this.
