  5. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found this one, which looks like tree bark with some particular marks. I have found several well preserved fossils at the same quarry but I will upload the pictures later. I have been looking for information about this one in particular but I haven't found out what type of tree it is, has anybody seen this before? Thank you very much!
  6. Marine Cretaceous fossil help ID

    Hello everyone! I found this fossil in Valencia, Spain. It's from the lower cretaceous but I cant be more accurate. I dont know what it is but I assume it's some kind of bivalve or gastropod but cant find the specie. I recorded a video and uploaded on youtube, hope u can see it well, if not let me know and I will try to show you better. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
  7. Annularia Sphenophylloides

    From the album Plants

    Annularia Sphenophylloides from the Upper Carboniferous of Spain.
  8. Vertebrate findings or geology??

    Hi I have currently had some trouble indentifying some ichnofossils from this middle miocnen place, but I have ended up facing a big dilemma... There are some pieces which do not have bony structure, at least on their surface , but I cannot identify with any ichnofossils type(pupal chambers, burrowings, galleries...). I have started to think actually whether or not I am facing vertebrate bones, although it has always been my last idea in mind. The facies is continental and there have been findings of turtles, mastodonts and some equids nearby. I do not want to related these pieces with them but I jaut dont think geology can erode in these forms so many rocks in a 10 square meters area... I post now some photos, and thanks in advance
  9. Dinosaur Eggshell ID

    I traded some fossils for a bunch of European dinosaur eggshells a few years back, a mix from France and Spain. However, I stupidly misplaced the labels for these two sets of eggshells and now have no idea which site they came from (they appear to be from two different sites, judging by the colouration). I know it's a long shot, but if anyone with an interest in European dinosaur eggshells could shed some light on where these eggshells came from, it would be much appreciated. All are around 2mm tick.
  10. Shark teeth n3

    Hi again, everybody ! I bring you another tooth, this I found in Spain, specifically near Seville, far from the sea. I think Isurus but I am not expert opinions? measures 8x6 cm
  11. Unidentified galleries

    Hi everyone! I'm having some trouble classifying some ichnofossils which date back to the middle Miocene. They come from lacustrine/low-energy continental waters. If it helps, I've already identified some other ichnofossils in the area such as Celliforma, Planolites, Psilonichnus, Scoyenia, Palaeophycus, Teisseirei, Camborygma... This first photos are gallery "dead ends" which from my point of view share many caracteristics and should be a recognised ichnogenera. They show striation lines in the ventral part, some kind of "leg dragging" This second set seems like pupation chambers to me. They share some characters with Rebuffoichnus but I don't know for sure what it may be

  13. Ammonite or something else?

    Hi I found this the other day in a jurassic/cretaceous formation in valencia (spain) but I,m not sure if it's a worn out ammonite or something else. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! it came from inside a rock like this one, as you can see there are pseudogrammoceras and other marine fossils:
  14. Ammonites ID

    Hello everyone! I found this ammonite yesterday in Valencia, Spain (as far as I know the strata in that mountain are Jurassic/Cretaceous). I would appreciate any help on identifying what kind of ammonite it is and if anyone could tell me what's the mineral shown on its surface. Thanks for your help!
  15. Fossil or just rock?

    Hi everyone, Althought I,m a big fan of paleontology I,m still new in this world and sometimes I,m not sure about what I find. I go fossil hunting to a mountain in Valencia, Spain, where I usually find some kinds of ammonites and belemnites. As far as I know the strats in that mountain are jurassic/cretaceous. The other day I found this but I,m not sure if it's a fossil or just a weird rock formation. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!
  16. Hello! This is something really stange I found a few time ago which had a really strange structure which I couldn't explain as a sedimentary one. I've always had it as a simple pseudofossil, but a few days ago I found another exact structure, although a little bit more fragmentary. They are quite unusual, al least for me. What is clear to me is that in case they are fossils, they are fragments of bone. On one side they show a lineal pattern of holes, not really deep, where I think teeth were placed. One the other side they show a really characteristic pattern of triangle like holes, which I have supposed to be a really strong anchor point for muscles. I think they could be fragments of pterygoid bones from some kind of snakes, because it's the only way these two pieces make any sense to me. The patterns of the structures of both pieces are exactly the same, but I'm afraid my camera's depth perception is not good enogh in order to show that... Measurements in mm.
  17. Mysterious molar

    Hello, I'm new in this forum I'd like to start up with a question about a molar teeth I hope some of you could answer I found this tooth in middle Miocene strata, and I don't know what it is. The first thing I thought was that it was just a simple tooth from a present animal, but I can't math my tooth with wolfs, foxes nor dogs. I thought then about it being Miocene old and I wonder if it could be Amphicyon or Hemicyon, which I know that have been found in a nearby locality. I can't found enogh material on the internet to clarify this, so a little help would be awesome. I think it is a milk tooth because the root nor any signal of it has been preserved. Thanks in advance!
  18. Worn echinoid from Spain?

    Hi all, Some time ago I made a post asking about what the fossil my friend had found was. Now he gave it to me (because he doesn't have a passion for it), which of course I was really glad with. Anyways, by surprise he gave me a second one too. It's also from a beach near Sevilla (Spain); I'm thinking that it's another worn echinoid. Am I right? Best regards, Max
  19. ID needed: Rock found near Sevilla

    Hi everyone, A friend of mine found this on a beach near Sevilla, Spain. It does seem like there is something... Anyone have a clue what it could be? Thanks! Max
