These tiny teeth (?) have me stumped, as did a bit of the Cabezon fauna I am working on. This site has been very helpful in identifying some of the rarer fossils, and I am asking for your help once again. At first glance, I thought these four dots were fungal or some other type of current plant material, but examining them under a microscope I am pretty convinced these have enameloid structures. Any idea of what they could be from? I am assuming some form of teleost at this time. Thanks for all of the help, past, present, and future!
Hey all! This small jaw fragment was in the thousands of fossils pulled out of anthills. I am assuming it is a teleost. Other than several species of sharks, rays, and sawfish, there are pycnodonts, enchodus, and Protosphyraena. This looks like nothing I've found yet. Any ideas?
Hey everyone Hope you're all doing well! While looking through unprepped/untouched blocks of chalk from last year's fieldwork session in the Late Cretaceous of Møns Klint (Denmark), I found one block that showed a little trace of fish bone. I scraped a bit around it with some dental tools, and managed to reveal the whole fossil. And I'm having quite some trouble identifying it... Could anyone help me? I've included pics and details of the specimen below. Pics: Note especially the 'ridges' in the upper half of the fossil Full detai
Hello everyone! I made the better pictures of teleost scales (cycloid and ctenoid type) found in flintstone erratics of South Lithuania, Varena district. Please help me to find out which taxons are visible in this collection, maybe you even know an expert on this? I identified some specimens as I think but to me it is difficult to determine especially scale from lateral line. Please ehlp with ID if you have experience with these remains. Best Regards Domas
