  1. Hiya! First time posting so please forgive me if I’m doing something incorrectly. I’ve recently gotten into fossils after previously collecting different minerals. I would like verification for two fossils before I go ahead and purchase them.
  2. I bought this piece online and it just looks too good to be true, especially for the price.

    Big Brook NJ Huge Lobster Claw or ???

    Sifting Big Brook today and this came up from a deep dig. It has the look of a Lobster claw or Shrimp claw, which are usually only half inch in length or so. This specimen is roughly 3 inches long and about 1-3/4 in diameter at thickest and 1-inch at thinnest point. Its actually pretty heavy. There's noticeable ridges on each side near the edge and looks like little nubs almost like on lobster claws. Cretaceous era fossils normally in the stream. What could it be?
  4. Hello all, With the start of this month I have gotten back to doing some fossil prep. I am still very much learning but I am happy with how this one turned out. It's a Callianopsis clalamenis nodule from the Pysht formation of Washington State which I found this past January that preserves two sets of feeding and defensive claws as well as some disarticulated shell material. This prep was fun and I am excited to try another shrimp, they are a welcome break from working with very hard pyrite nodules from Yorkshire. Before prep: After about half an hour

    Not sure from Northern NJ brook

    A little perplexed on this one. I’m guessing ghost shrimp claw perhaps? Found near Ramenessin while sifting. Tooth of some sort maybe? I’m open to options but for now thinking claw.
  7. Hi all! Just wanted to share my little collection of trilobites and pals now that I have a small assortment. I hope you enjoy! I’m working up to actually getting out in the field soon, so hopefully a few finds of my own might join these fellers!

    Eagle Ford Decapoda?

    I dug this out of an Eagle Ford group embankment yesterday and wanted to get some thoughts on it. There was a very thin layer containing a few black (phosphate?) pebbles and I dug some out to examine. This one was shaped differently so I took it home to investigate further. As soon as I recognized symmetry I knew I had more than a pebble. I'd love to learn what it might be. 1: 2: Specimen rotated away from ruler 1/4th turn. 3: Specimen rotated away from ruler an additional 1/4th turn. 4: Rotated an additional 1/4th turn.

    Mazon Creek id help

    Hi everyone, I was going through some more of my Mazon creek material and could use some help with ids I have some ideas what these might be, but I'm still pretty inexperienced and would really appreciate some help. Thank you in advance!

    Tiny Chinese fossil needs ID

    I got this little tile over 10 yrs ago when I didn't know anything about fossils and didn't have a loop. All I saw was clams I thought, now I see something but can't remember what it was supposed to be, and brachiopods I think. Appreciate any help on ID and approximate age.

    Unknown Fossil Shrimp

    Hi everyone, I just got this Enchelion montium Eel fossil in today, and I was wondering if you could help me ID the shrimp on the back. I'm assuming it's a Carpopenaeus, but I'm not sure. There's also an odd fin-like structure near the shrimp, if anyone has any ideas as to what it belongs to (if it even belongs to anything, that is), I'd greatly appreciate it.
  12. Although I haven't been beach hunting much this winter (fishing was great until a few weeks ago), I rooted around for my shrimp coprolite burrows. Lately I have been finding less of the cylindrical 1-3" long burrows and more broken pieces. @Carl @GeschWhat are the experts on these things, and lately I've found more of them on the beachs than shark teeth (Covid-19 opened the interest in beach combing so more competition for teeth.) Difficult to get much resolution, even enhancing the contrast, but this is a scan of most of my collection:
  13. Crustaceans are a large, diverse group of anthropods which includes the crabs, prawns, lobsters, barnacles and other shelled animals. Perhaps owing to their hard shells and marine lifestyles, crustaceans have a rich and extensive fossil record, extending up to the Cambrian, though they do not appear in abundance until the Carboniferous. They make for attractive and familiar fossils, and are one of my favorite groups to collect. Allow me to present my humble collection.

    Franken-Arthropod with 5 eyes

    Link to article in Cosmos Magazine
  15. Greetings all. I had forgotten about this piece of shale that I split while at Jalama a couple of weeks back. To my eye it looks like either a land insect, or possible a sea bug, like a shrimp. Then again, it may be nothing. But just in case it's just to the right side of almost nothing, I figured I'd post an image or two. Thanks for any input provided. Cheers. Rats, I forgot the size reference/index. Length is ~15mm. Exploding fish reference thread. Monterey formation in Santa Barbara, CA, USA.

    Belated 2019 Road Trip Fossils

    Last year, to celebrate finishing my undergraduate degree, my girlfriend and I went on a long (9,000+ mile) road trip around the western US and at long last (a little over a year since their discovery) the last of the fossils we found are out of the refrigerator and I’ve finally gotten all of them photographed. Here are some of the highlights and best fossils we found. A rough map of the route of the trip While the trip wasn’t entirely fossil centric we wanted to hunt at a few cool spots along the way. We chose to visit 5 fossil locations, the first of which was

    Shrimp tail?

    Hi, I found this yesterday in the Bois Blanc Formation, and am wondering if it could be a shrimp tail. It looks very similar! Thank you!

    NJ Stream Shrimp or Crab?

    I searched a new stream outside of the normal haunts and found some oddly packed matrix orange brown and granular in coloring, where I found some gastropods I posted last week. This time, I found scattered orange flat pieces that looked like crab arms and when I broke one chunk of matrix open, the flat piece was accompanied by this bottom portion of claw. Anyone have any idea what species this may be? Ghost shrimp? It wasn't in the usual NJ Cretaceous streams so I am not sure what formation it might have been in. @The Jersey Devil (Sorry for some images did the best I could with focus on such

    Fossil ID shrimp?

    Found this in south Sweden. Looks to me like a shrimp of some sort. Anyone recognize what kind? Thanks for the look!!

    Mazon creek arthropods

    I'm wondering if anyone can identify some mazon creek fossils the first 3 I think are shrimp or molts The 4th I was told was a "dragonfly body" I'm not sure what to think about that and am wondering if there is anything identifiable as an insect Finally it's not an arthropod, but just a curious color difference I'd like help with

    Corolla NC Shrimp?

    Corolla NC beach. I danced and jumped for joy, no regrets. Shrimp? Age? Anything you can figure out? I am blown away, as we get crab pieces, coral and sea Robin skull plates .. but nothing like this in 30 years.

    Mazon Concretion

    Hey all! Just bought this piece at a rock shop here in Chicago. It was sold to me as a shrimp, the shop owner was pretty confident in this, but I'm pretty sure it's a fern instead. Not disappointed since I just appreciate the composition here, it's a super pretty one, kind of off-beat. Can anybody help ID the exact fauna? Thanks so much!

    Callianassid burrows

    @GeschWhat @Carl It has been cold, but the shrimp (callianassid) coprolite burrows I find have been relatively plentiful (more than decent sized shark teeth) with recent strong north winds and low tides. One puzzle to me is the variation in diameter of the burrows. Carl, our expert, believes the coprolites just sank and deposited in burrows (at another site I have found a few steinkerns with similar, sparser deposits. ) All of the burrows I have found on the Rapp beach have been cylindrical, or possibly pieces of cylinders (of course, this could be bias in my collecting, but I examine lots
