  1. I found this snail fossil in a gravel road, and was wondering what species it is. I already did some research and I think it might be a species of Anchura, but I'm not sure.It's shell coils and I'm pretty sure the tip of the shell is gone. The shell is just a bit over 2 cm in length.

    Gasatropod

    As battered as this is, it is an unusually well-preserved specimen for this locality. Although there are brachiopods and bivalves that preserved as calcium carbonate at this locatlity, most gastropods in the Cretaceous of Delaware are either steinkerns or are preserved as battered phosphate with phosphate in-fill. Gouging appears to have occurred after fossilization since the matrix does not completely fill the gouges. Most shell predation at Reedy Point came from clionia sponges and boring clams. This resembles neither. This was found in loose sand from dredge spoils.
  3. As I am working my way through the Keasey fm. rocks looking for fossils, I was gathering up the shards and small pieces and I notice a small piece of shell in the deep water piece I was working. Kept it just to check it out. as you can see the gastropod (I think, closest shells with the ribbing and rings are Bruclarkia columbiana and Solenosteira macrospira (does not seem to have been found in the Keasey Fm.)) The rest of the matrix is very hard and the dental picks won't scratch what is left. I think the center shows this is definitely a Gastropod but only a partial shell and one that is rea

    Virginia Turritella ID Help

    On a recent fossil outing, I visited a large shell bed in a creek near Williamsburg, VA that I read to be of the Late Miocene Cobham Bay Member, Eastover Formation. Many of the fossils we found seemed to confirm that this site is Miocene age. We found Chesapecten middlesexensis, Isognomon sp., Glycymeris sp., Ostrea compressirostra, Lirophora sp. However, we also found these three Turritella shell fragments. They measure about 2-3cm in length. I thought these shells looked very similar to the Turritella alticostata posted by @sixgill pete from the Yorktown Fm of NC or the Turritella alumensis
  5. This specimen was found in the Pittsburg Bluff formation (Oligocene) in loosely consolidate sandstone. Due to the large opening and smooth shell I believe it to be a Neverita. Although the location is near the town of Pittsberg Oregon, I can't recommend it for the faint of heart (you are about 4' from the traffic which is mostly log trucks going > 55 MPH). However that being said the talus at the bottom of this formation is a marine invertebrate hunters gold mine. There was one piece of the sandstone that was fairly large (over a meter long) and it and every stone beneath had fossils. Most
  6. 5 days late my scope arrives late yesterday. Put it together before bed time:) I had read here I believe that you could adapt the triocular camera adapter by using a .96" EP holder. I did but I got rid of the AM supplied connector and used a .96 (with electric tape) to 1 1/4" adapter. Using the snout (1 1/4") that came with my Astro 224 camera it works. Downside is very high Power. However when I am not removing tiny Eocene invertebrates the high power images can be useful (although I do have a regular macro setup for bigger finds). Here is how I got the attached 5 image stack. I

    Quartz Snail (Gastropod) Fossil?

    It's been a while since I have been on here. Life got in the way of me looking for rocks and fossils. The property that I have access to hunt in has several seasonal creeks on it. This was found in a dry creek bed. I didn't think a lot about it as these type of "snail" fossils are the main thing that I find. When looking at it closer at home, I realized that the fossil itself seems to be replaced with quartz? The surface has been worn down by weathering and by the creek flow during the spring. I am not sure that the images convey the crystal properly, but the clear, crystal structure is

    Fossilized Snails?

    This is my very first post on The Fossil Forum. I was hoping for some experts to weigh in on what exactly are these fossils. I picked them from a lake shore in Central Texas. Can you please tell me the species? What are the approximate ages for these? Why did they go extinct? Thank you for all of your help. Dubs

    Micro Gastropod

    This came from a bag of mixed micro matrix from the Lee Creek AKA Aurora Mine which was sifted, sifted again and sifted some more. It is a mixture of material from three formations: the Miocene Pungo River Fm., the Pliocene Chowan River Fm., and the Pleistocene James City Fm. After digging through reputable resources covering the area from Maryland down to Florida, the administrators and I have mostly ruled out Miocene as none of the references mention anything similar from that time period. Three names are given for the species from the Pliocene and Pleistocene. Ward and Blackwelder

    Late Carboniferous Gastropod

    Possible ID of Trepospira sphaerulata from a local gastropod expert, but he isn’t sure. Similar ones in a group with original specimen at the right. Left is suspect of being related, but it might be.

    What is this?

    I am a contractor and found this in 2004 in Austin, TX on an empty house lot. Probably boring to yall but was just curious as to what it was. I'm thinking a snail but would like to know the real name of it as I have no knowledge about this kind of thing. Currently being used as a paper weight. The dimensions are 168mm wide 127mm deep 99mm tall. 2.63 kg Thank you for your help! Mark

    Ammonites and gastropods.

    Hello, sorry to be a pain with all these IDs. I thought itd be easier if I just put all of them in one post. All were found in Northamptonshire, UK. Which is mostly Jurassic in age. Sorry there's no scale, I couldn't find my ruler anywhere. I'll have to upload more images below this. Its been quite some time since I've found ammonites. The land had just been rotavated, and aside from the ammonites, I found some Bivalves, and two golf balls buried. Thanks. These are the first two ammonites, I tried to ID them, but they are incomplete, so it was a difficulty, the closest I

    Ammonite or regular gastropod?

    I hunt fossils in gravel from creeks and the likes. According to the geological survey of similar gravel the age ranges from 200-400 million years ago. I was wondering if you guys could tell me if this was an ammonite or some other sea gastropod. I've found countless other types of fossils but this is the only one like this.
  19. It was raining this morning, so my best site was near Yaxley. The fossils really pop there when wet. In one hour of searching I had 13 fragments of ammonite. I thought it was 14, but when washing them realised one was a miffed snail, who is now in the garden. Mostly the ammonites are pyratised, and preserve sutures and ornamentation well. I found 8 crinoid sections, including round ossicles - I normally only find star shaped ones.

    Fossil Ridge Colorado no clue

    Three photos of this strange find. My son and I found this as is on a mountain trail on Fossil Ridge Mountain. I have no idea what this is, I would guess it is some sort of shelled sea creature, a little smaller than a baseball. If someone could enlighten me, my so and I would be grateful. Thanks for looking!

    Tiny shell

    A few months ago I won an auction presented by @RJB. In it was a sand dollar that was encrusted by some coquina, so I worked on getting most of it off. When poking around in the stuff earlier this morning, I found a tiny little shell, just barely over 1/2 mm in size & very fragile. I got a couple pics of it with my dino lite, but to see detail I had to get creative. Had the onboard LEDs turned way down, but it was still washing it out, so I took 1 pic & shut them off. I then used a small LED flashlight with weak batteries & got a couple decent enough pics with some side lighting. H

    Gastropod

    Synonyms: Bembexia planidorsalis Hall 1876, Pleurotomaria planidorsalis Hall 1876 , Pleurotomaria planodorsalis Hall 1876 Although this specimen appears crushed, this gastropod is typically very flat in profile. Thanks to @Jeffrey P for pointing me in the right direction.
