  1. Inclusions in paving slabs

    I have just gotten back from a two week holiday in Majorca, Spain. We stayed in a self catering apartment. The area around the swimming pool was paved with what looks like sandstone slabs to me. There were shell fragments in all of them. Most were very indistinct, but there was a little detail in in some. No idea where these slabs would have been sourced from. Are these actually fossils??
  2. Can you ID this one?

    Hello again friends. I've found this while hiking at about 1800 m. a.s.l. in Santiago-Pontones (Jaen, Spain), in a place which I believe is quaternary. I've not been able to find it in the local literature. Now I only have this picture (I have more but they are dark and not useful), the rock is limestone and is wet, the fossil is conic, I'll post more pictures if necessary. The ruler is in cm. Thank you.
  3. Help me ID this

    I found this near a river in La Matea (Jaen, Spain) the zone is predominantly mesozoic and the rock is limestone. I'm not sure if it's a fossil or some kind of formation. I have two similar specimen, is like a cylinder that goes from one side to the other of the rock, in one of the images I've partially removed some of the rock. Thank you.
  4. New Spinosaurid from Spain

    A new Spinosaurid has been described from Spain's, Arcillas de Morella Formation (upper Barremian) , Vallibonavenatrix cani. Since this Spinosaurid has affinities to those in North Africa and may assist us in identifying material from Morocco. Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667119301302
  5. Majorca - Spain

    Hi, I am off to Majorca, Spain next week. Is one allowed to collect fossils ? If so, can anyone suggest sites. Thanks

  9. Help identifyng these ammonite species

    Hi, I found these ammonite specimens in the Oxfordian Ammonitico Rosso facies from the Baleriac Islands, Spain. I know that the preservation state is quite poor but I would like to get some help identifyng the genus and species. I am not familiar with ammonite description but here you have a very basic description of what I see: Specimen 1: No ribs, oxycone/discocone, involut, carinate? Specimen 2 (Taramelliceras sp?): two pair of ribs (primary and secondary), oxycone/discocone, involut Specimen 3: No ribs, discocone, carinate? Specimen 1
  10. Found on northern Spain Beach

    I found this bone while walking a beach in northern Spain back in January. It is about 5" (12.5 CM) long. The smaller end is somewhat rounded off but it doesn't look broken. In other words, I don't think the bone was much longer than it is now. Does anyone have any idea what it is? I have been told it might be a calcaneum from an ice age artiodactyl? Agree? Thank you in advance for your help. Rich
  11. A number of possible trilobite eggs from the Middle Ordovician Sueve Formation of the Cantabrian Zone were found and studied, during the construction of a tunnel in northern Spain. They found many pyrite spheres which they believe to be eggs from members of the pliomeridae family of trilobites. They also found different post-embryonic stages of calymenacean trilobites. I do not know as much as I would like to about trilobites, but I found the idea of fossilized trilobite eggs interesting. Does anyone know if trilobite eggs have been found before? I left links to the paper below! Thank you for reading. https://scholar.google.com/scholar?as_ylo=2019&q=trilobite+&hl=en&as_sdt=0,33&as_vis=1#d=gs_qabs&u=%23p%3D8GgXRgHLIFUJ https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=12qNDwAAQBAJ&oi=fnd&pg=PA23&dq=info:8GgXRgHLIFUJ:scholar.google.com/&ots=ndL4Yvl33A&sig=77hwzzM82cT_-YA_qeGIEKx1Z5Q#v=onepage&q&f=false

  14. Plant trunk cortex for ID

    I want to submit for identification the specimen below. It came from the Carboniferous of Leon, Spain, labeled as tree trunk cortex. There are no other informations available. Any thought of what might be exactly, or a more precise ID will be welcomed. Thank you.
  15. Hey, i found this rock in the river, cost of north spain. Theh found some cuaternarian sable teeth and rhino teeth near here, could this be a mamooth tooth??
  16. No idea about what this is.

    Recently re discovered a bunch of these things that we got from the Canary Islands. They were all washed up on the beaches and they do not look stricktly geological to me and looks kind of like some kind of modern calcified organism or trace of one. I stumbled upon a book at some point, I believe it was called Darwin's Fossils that said these were some kind of remains of algae that have fossilized, but when I looked that up there was no evidence I could find supporting this claim, maybe someone else knows what these things could be? Any new insight is appreciated, Thank you.
  17. MIOCENE ISLAND

    I should have posted this long ago, but am going to do it now, in the hope that then it is behind me and then I can look forward to future adventures. Due to ill health from 2012, finances and responsibilities, I have been unable to do any personal collecting except for this one wonderful trip which reminded me that I've still got it in me. In October 2016 wifey and I were relaxing in a bar on Tarifa beach, the southernmost point in mainland Europe, located at the south-western corner of Spain, opposite Tangier, the two Pillars of Hercules that are the entrance to the Mediterranean from the Atlantic. I noticed an island connected to the mainland by a man made causeway. it had a lighthouse on and some ruins, so I thought that being only a little distance, I'd go and explore. Here is the location, to the left of the picture is the Mediterranean, to the right, the Atlantic. There are no more location pics, I'm afraid, as wifey can't be prised away from bars very easily and she has the camera phone, but the island was closed to visitors without a guide or permit as it's a place for protected birds, the lighthouse and Napoleonic fortress ruins. But to the left of the causeway was a small beach with exposed rocks and even a little notice board explaining that the rocks were a Miocene oyster bed 5 to 10 million years old. My interest was aroused so I clambered about the beach and found the fossils in the next post. Very pleased with myself, I was, especially as I had no tools and the rock was really seriously hard. Had to use other bits of rock as hammer and chisels. And my breathing held out pretty well. I can still do this! Life's Good.
  18. fossil worms?

    First of all thank you for accepting me as a member. I have a fossil that I hope catches your attention. I think they are Miocene worms. They belong to the Vallès-Penedés. What is strange is that they are in such good condition, I think they are unique. I await your opinion.
  19. Almerarhynchia virgiliana

    New genus and new species first described by Dr. Sebastian Calzada Badia in: C a l z a d a , S., 1974. Almerarhynchia n. gen. virgiliana n. sp. del Maastrichtiense de Figols, Prepireneo catalan. Acta Geológica Hispanica, 9 (3): 92-97. http://digital.csic.es/handle/10261/7365. ID of the specimen confirmed by Dr. Calzada.
  20. Hello. Good evening to everyone from my favorite Forum! Unfortunately I do not have the slightest intimacy with coral fossils, so I do not know if they are fake or whether they are true, whether they are common or whether they are rare. Precisely because of my complete ignorance of the matter, I have resolved, please, to ask for your help. So I basically have 2 questions: 01 - Are they real? 02 - The seller describes as fossil corals of the species PLASCOMILLIA VIDALI, from the Late Cretaceous (SANTONIENSE), discovered in Lerida, Spain, aged 83 to 87 million years. Is this information correct? Are these 3 corals: Coral - 1 Coral - 2 Coral - 3 @Tidgy's Dad

  23. Eocene Fossilized wood?

    Hello everyone, I went to a fossil hunting trip in Alicante, Spain and I found this weird shaped rock. I dont know if it could be fossilized wood or just a funny shaped rock. It's from the eocene and the place around it was full of nummulites. You could also find some echinoids and gastropods but more rarely. Thanks for your help!
  24. New Nothosaur from Spain

    Just got this paper from ResearchGate.. A new Spanish nothosauroid (Paludidraco multidentatus); published 2 days ago. Thought the marine reptile fans might want a copy Cranial remains of the holotype and paratype specimens here's the paper : Paludidraco_paper.pdf hope you like it! -Christian
  25. Jellyfish?

    Supposed to be from the Cretaceous, found in Mota del Cuevo (Spain). I think it may be a jellyfish... on a shell... Note the soft-looking round brownish double structure on the center. Between the two structures it looks transparent white. Underneath there is a shell. On top there is a stick-structure with another round structure of a different kind I think. What is it? Thank you!
