    Pleistocene Canepatch Formation Scallop

    I found this scallop at an exposure of the Middle to Late Pleistocene Canepatch Formation in North Carolina. I have tried in vain to find information on pectens of the Canepatch Formation. I found a single reference placing Carolinapecten eboreus in the Canepatch Formation but I am not totally sure if that matches. I tried to compare the ears of this scallop to images of Carolinapecten eboreus and I was not confident that they matched. Sadly this specimen is heavily water worn in the waves and has lost some of its distinguishing features. I would love to know if anyone is familiar with the pec

    Calvert Cliffs trip 1

    Took my first trip out to Calvert cliffs state park this weekend. Got there as early as I could, which started me at high tide. Beach loaded up with people throughout the day. And from what I saw, nobody else found any teeth. So I consider myself lucky with the hastalis I found. The roots were just barely showing, I think a wave may have just uncovered them. It was a long day round trip from NY but worth it. Also found some scallops.

    Neithea quinquecostata

    From the album: C&D Canal Micro Fossils

  5. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu

    Micro Scallop

    The treasure of the Reedy Point Spoils is in the micros! This is one of over 100 micros I collected in one day just surface collecting after the spoils area was freshly cleared of vegetation -- and freshly cleared of much of the remaining matrix. Of all of those micro fossils, this is the only one of this species and very possibly the only one I have found in 16 years of collecting at that site. The Reedy Point Spoils is a 220+ acre dredge deposit from the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. The matrix is a combination of material from the Mt Laurel and Navesink Formations, which are no

    Scallop i.d.? Unidentified fossil

    Good morning! I was hiking along a park path when I inspected a large boulder and found these two fossils, the first of which is similar to modern day scallop. I didn't have anything to measure with -my apologies, but it was approximately 1 1/4" in height and 1" across. the other object has some faint lines/rays emanating from ~9:00 to 2:00, but not sure it is overlying the underside of another shell, or is part of the fossil. This one is approximately 1 1/2" x 3/4 " Any thoughts and suggestions on i.d.s welcome and encouraged!..... not sure I could remove the scallop intact but thou

    Petrified scallop

    I’ve been around the scalloping industry for over 40 years and this is the only one I’ve seen . it has a flat side , a round side and the hinge area So it is either sand that turned into a rock like a mold or it a petrified scallop ?????

    Bivalve IDs from SC coast

    All of these were found beach combing in Charleston, SC and all were caked with what I believe is limestone. A. Not sure on this one. Thought clam before pulling away some limestone but now thinking oyster? About 5cm wide. B. Scallops, wondering type and age if identifiable About 3 cm tall. C. Was thinking scallop on this one but it doesn’t seem to have the same vertical lines, they’re all horizontal. Roughly 9cm tall. Thank you all in advance! I’ll be posting some corals and

    First attempt!

    Went to Virginia a few months ago and came home with a few Chesapectin nefrens encased in solid rock. This one was only exposed as a ring of shell material in a ball of clay, calcite, iron ,broken shell and who knows what else. Normally I prep things with soft brushes, dental picks, a water pick, and very gentle fingers. That wasn't cutting it this time and I had to get aggressive. I spent 3+ hours with a rotary tool and zero practice. It's no museum piece, but it's not horrible. I could simply collect the same species, from the same member of the same formation, at a much closer

    Scallop

    From the album: Virginia Miocene

    Chesapectin nefrens Westmoland County, VA Choptank Formation Middle Miocene C. nefrens is fairly common in the Choptank Formation, but the level of sculptural detail preserved in this particular specimen just blew me away when I gently brushed off the loose sediment.

    Never identified a fossil before!

    Hello, I am very new to this. I am a bio teacher with no experience in paleontology but I have to teach it! I recently found an intact top and bottom scallop shell off the James River, in Surry county, Virginia. I know it belongs to the Chesapecten genus, but not sure what species it is. Some friends have tried to help but I don’t understand what they are talking about. Possibly found in either the Yorktown formation or Eastover formation. Please help!
  19. Found this amongst some rocks and Agatized Coral at Dunedin Causeway in FL. Can anyone confirm that it's actually a fossil? And not just a modern cement mixer or something?! Pretty sure it is a fossil! Thanks

    Monotis?

    Hi there. Found this rock a few months back, assuming for the moment that it's a monotis sp which are pretty common to Triassic marine sediments here in NZ. Any other opinions would be appreciated.
  21. On my recent trip to the Caloosahatchee (while waiting for the Peace River to descend a bit) a friend and I went to our favorite place, as I recounted on my recent A DAY ON THE CALOOSAHATCHEE post under the Trips section of the forum. Besides the things I can identify, I found what I think is a piece of antler, though it doesn't look like a whitetail deer antler to me, so I hope someone might be able to help ID it. I also found a small delicate scallop I was not able to ID . Over the years I found many kinds of scallops, i seem to recall seeing a similar one once in a post identifyi

    Chesapectin nefrens

    From the album: Calvert Cliffs

    Collected loose on the beach in St. Leonard, Maryland middle Miocene Choptank Formation Drum Cliff Member Chesapectin nefrens is an index fossil for the Drum Cliff Member of the Choptank Formation, meaning that whatever chunk of matrix one may find fallen out of the cliffs, the precise layer is known so that other fossils in the same block can be identified. These are a very common find at St. Leonard and other places, but I particularly liked the coloration on this one!
