  1. Everyone I've encountered on this site has been very helpful, so thank you. However, I'm in need of more help. For the last year I've been collecting real fossils in the field and selling some to pay for more exotic rocks. In a recent post I found that my Solnhofen shrimp is, if not totally, mostly fake. Now I'm quite suspicious of my entire purchased collection and was hoping you could help me identify fakes. The first two pictures are apparently Priscacara, Green River Formation, Eocene; the next two supposedly Asteroidea, Morocco, Ordovician; the last three supposedly Triassic, Arizona petr
  2. I have never seen starfish and matrix like this. Do you think it is real or fake? Thanks in advance!

    What starfish is this?

    This fossil is of Late Ordovician age from the Upper Ktaoua Formation at Erfoud, Morocco. It is quite obviously a starfish, so is in the class Asteroidea. The starfish is about 8.5 cm across. I'd like to know if anyone has a more specific id, ideally the genus but otherwise the family or at least the order.
  4. Sooo....wondering if any of you in the academic field might know if there is a 3D printer fossil starfish "program"? Not sure what they are called....template? File? Anyways, I have seen some but they are not specifically fossil starfish. I would like a fossil starfish, not a modern. Anyways, just thought I'd ask.....

    A Cold Day in the Glen Rose

    Back in the Fall I got permission to visit a small exposure of the Early Albian Glen Rose Formation. Unfortunately the property owner told me that I could only visit on a Friday. We had planned a visit a few times but for some reason or another the plans kept falling through. Today I finally got the chance to visit. Sadly today was one of the coldest days this month. Temperatures hovered in the low 40s with a wind chill factor in the low 30s. After visiting the site I checked out a couple of other spots in the area that I had previously visited. The finds were tough to come by, partly because

    From Morocco. Is it a fossil? Or a work of art?

    Starfish and leaves

    I found a few interesting things at a road cut near Brady TX that I had went to with the Austin Paleontological society. I found a layer that had about 140 starfish and in the same area some of the layers had pieces of petrified wood and what looks like tiny leaves. Any info is appreciated Thanks
  8. I found this worn piece of Berea Sandstone that seems to have once hosted a bunch of brittle stars on the face. How would you calculate the risk:reward ratio wrt splitting it to see if there are pristine brittle star fossils inside, and if so, what's the best method to expose potential fossils without an air scribe and without jeopardizing the brittle stars that are exposed? It's about an inch thick and has a very, very, very slight hint of a fissure near the face. Sorry for the poor pics.

    Mystery fossil from South France

    About 18 years ago, when I was on holiday with my family in the Cevennes in southern France, I found lots of ammonite fossils near a rivier. I also picked up this slap of stone with strange imprints in it. Tracks of a sea creature like a worm or arthropod? On the other side are the imprints of something that looks like a starfish. It has been a mystery for me since the day I found it. Any suggestions/ideas what i can be?

    PA Ordovician Starfish

    For Father's Day Weekend my dad and I drove into Pennsylvania yesterday to collect Ordovician fossils at a location I read about with access to the Salona Formation. With rain in the forecast I was a little worried the trip would be a total wash. Instead, we experienced beating sun, and, having left our hats at home, we quickly began to overheat. My dad also found two snakes while overturning some large rocks. To say the least my dad was ready to leave after an hour. Luckily I was able to convince him that if he wanted to stop he should at least let me poke around for another 30 minutes. While
  16. Saturday dawned a bit chilly, but the sun peeped out from lingering clouds to brighten a stellar day of fossil prospecting in the Ordovician bedrock of central Pennsylvania. We strolled along the limestone ground, like beachcombers peering in shallow shore waters, when my relatively newbie friend exclaimed, "That looks like a starfish!" Bingo...Indeed it was an Asteroidea. I'm guessing it's genus Urasterella, and I wonder how rare is this find. The specimen's longest ray is 1.75 inches (4.45 cm). Photos are the rock slab and a closeup of the mostly complete starfish, as f
  17. Welp. I did it. I got through the last of the fossil boxes. Tons of common stuff and Hundreds of old Ward’s samples to organize and inventory. but the very last specimen in the very last box is worth sharing....

    Aldebarania arenitea

    Found 8 Aug 2013. An extremely rare starfisht, it was 1 of less than 10 complete specimens ever found at that time. It was found in the sand layer of the Rocky Point member of the PeeDee. This layer contains abundant Flemingostrea subspatulata among other oysters along with Hardouinia mortonis and kellumi echinoids. This starfish was invertebrate fossil of the month in 08/2013.

    Brittlestar Fossil Authenticity?

    I purchased a bulk collection of ambers (Baltic and Dominican) from a collector looking for some spare cash. Along with it she included a Geocoma carinata fossil. I admittedly don't know much about fossils. But a few red flags have caught my eye post-purchase not about the amber specimens but the fossil. She is a reputable collector and once owned a store in the area I live in. I guess the first sign is that the information she gave me had the name spelled incorrectly. "Geocoma corinata" I'm a biology student, I get that names can change over time or there are instances of typos but the next b

    Swatara Gap PS Starfish

    I've been collecting at the actual Swatara Gap site since I was a kid and over the years collected most of the trilobites and starfish that were found there. However, there are some starfish that I would like to verify. I've tried literature searches and know there is a 1989 paper on them , but I cannot find it on-line. Hopefully, one of you guys can help with identifying these specimens. Any help would be appreciated/

    Sea stars / starfish?

    Years ago bought some rock boxes from an estate sale in California. Included were some fossils I just don't know anything about. Most had vague or no IDs. The larger of these Sea Stars is approximately 6.5mm across. Gonna post a few here just to see if anything interesting although these have no connection to my collection.

    Starfish

    I got this fossil at an antique shop a while back and I believe they told me it was from Morocco. other than that I have no other information. Is there any way you guys could help me?
  25. I recently bought this from a live auction and thought that it was cool and the price was right. It was listed as a starfish from Kansas. I did some checking and only found one site that mentioned starfish from Kansas and it stated that they were Pennsylvanian in age and I could not find any other info. I was wondering if anyone has any further info on this piece and I was also wondering if these were formed by the starfish resting? Again any info would be appreciated.
