  1. Hello, here is the next (second) coral from the Campanian of St. Bartholomä, Styria, Austria. Not much was visible at the outside (I did not even notice it as coral colony!), but on sectioning, the specimen reveald its beauty. Unfortunately, he contrast is rather low. The two polished sections are about 35 mm apart, the first seems to be near the surface of the colony (with a Lithophaga?). The closest match I can find in Baron-Szabo (2014) is Barysmilia irregularis (Reuss, 1854). Three polished surfaces from this work are attached, scale bars are 5.5, 9.5 and 11 mm, respe
  2. Hello, some of you may have noticed my rudist posts from the Gosau basin of Kainach - St. Bartholomä, Styria, Austria. Beside rudists, there are also other fossils, but they are much rarer. During my hunting trips in the Campanian St. Bartholomä formation, I have found ca. 300 rudist specimens (hippuritidae and radiolitidae), but only 12 coral colonies, including two imprints, and no individual coral. I would like to show you one of these coral colonies and would like to ask you for your opinion. I will start with the simplest one. In the literature, only one coral species is de
  3. Heavy rains in Styria, Austria, have overturned many creek beds. So this is a good time for fossil hunting, e.g. for rudists in St. Bartholomä: View of the hunting area from Pleschkogel mountain (1063 m) toward St. Bartholomä with Kreuzegg and Kalchberg, distance about 8 km. Note the conspicuous church of St. Bartholomä, just below Kreuzegg. View is nearly southward, in the far background the Pohorje mountains in Slovenia. Photo taken 07/07/2018.
  4. Hello, just to show off some of my finds of Hippurites from August to October 2017 in the Campanian St. Bartholomä-formation of the Gosau basin of Kainach - St. Bartholomä, Styria, Austria. Upper right: 5x Hippurites colliciatus Woodward, 1855 Lower left: 4x Hippurites nabresinensis Futterer, 1893 If you are interested in field photographs etc., see: https://franzbernhard.lima-city.de/SanktBartholomae_Fossilfunde_Hippuritidae_Teil_3.pdf https://franzbernhard.lima-city.de/SanktBartholomae_Fossilfunde_Hippuritidae_Teil_2.pdf (in german) Franz

    Cretaceous sponges?

    Hello, again I would like to ask for your kind help. I have two sectioned fossils from the Campanian Gosau basin of Kainach, Styria, Austria (St. Bartholomä-Formation). They are accompanied by radiolitid rudists (R), but I don´t think that they are rudists by itself. Could these be some kind of sponges? But I can not see any spicules. Frist specimen is 13.5 cm high, sections are ca. 3 mm apart. Second specimen is 11.5 cm wide, sections are ca. 16 mm apart. There is nothing visible on the wheatered surface, except some Radiolitid fragments. I know this website: http
  6. Hello, this time a very mysterious fossil from the Gosau basin of Kainach, Styria, Austria (Campanium). A piece of limestone full of tubes with diameter up to 7 mm. There seem to be a variation of longidutinal ribs on the outside of the tubes. They are associated with one (lowest left) or two Hippuritids. I think these are serpulid worms, maybe genus Pyrgopolon, maybe something near to P. voigti Jäger, 2004. P. regia and P. macropus don´t fit 100%. What do you think? Problem is, I can not find any reference about serpulids from the Austrian gosau basins - ? Thank you very much f

    Vaccinites vesiculosus?

    Hello! I am currently looking for the rudists of the Upper Cretaceous Gosau basin of Kainach, Styria, Austria, around St. Bartholomae. So far, I have found one determinable specimen. I think, it could be Vaccinites vesiculosus (Woodward 1855). From this area, beside other rudists, Hippurites styriacus Hilber 1902, Hippurites carinthiacus Redlich 1899 and Hippirutes oppeli santoniensis Kühn 1954 are described in the literature, which seem to be all synonyms of V. vesiculosus, according to various sources. The first photo shows the outer surface of the specimen, which is
