  1. World tiniest ornithopod was found in Salas de los Infantes vicinity in Spain and now the research paper is available here: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cretres.2022.105342

    Tiny bone for identification please!

    From huge mammoth bones to tiny fragments. I've got a few bone (I think!) fragments that I would like to identify but they are probably too small. They belonged to a fossil collector here in the UK but I don't know anything other than that. I'll start with the smallest. Many thanks!
  3. I purchased this tiny tooth from The Judith River Formation, North of Havre, MT found on a private ranch close to the border. I am unable to identify the tooth, it appears Thescelosauridae however I don't think Thescelosaurs have been found in Judith River. Measures 0.18" Any idea what this could be?

    Found my first ever microfossils!

    Tiny crinoid columnals. Coming back to the same beach with a sieve tonight.
  5. Found this little I belive incisor. If I had to guess I'd say deer but I could be wrong. Haha. I looked at so many different pictures trying to figure it out but i just cant. Hopefully the pictures are ok. Thanks again!

    Are these fossils?

    My backyard has a large area where it's mainly rocky, meaning you can't really dig. Separating it from the "nice" grassy side of the yard is a hill. My daughter and I have found fossils there of bivalves and snails. I've attached some pictures of what I found today. But my question is regard to these tiny, circular, flat pieces that seem to cover the hill (first 3 pictures). I'm thinking they're a fossil of some kind, but I'm not sure. Can anyone help?

    Tiny Jawbone

    This piece is so small that it's difficult to get a good pic but let me know if you think I should try again. It was found in a creek in Maryland about 20 miles inland from the Calvert Cliffs. Found several fossil shark and ray teeth there. I'm pretty confident this is a jawbone with one tooth still attached but would like to know what it belonged to if anyone has any ideas.

    Maclurites?

    Found this Maclurites in Ordovician rock, just outside of Las Vegas!
  10. Hey Fossil Gang! I was exploring the forest near my dorm and found a small area where the ground had a sparse layer of tiny, white, spiral shells. I'm no expert but they didn't seem like snail shells, I could be wrong. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips for this situation. What should I do? I thought I could start by collecting some of the surface level shells and maybe even dig around a bit. I imagine just the tiny shells would be pretty common but do y'all think there could be greater treasures laying in wait? What sort of basic equipment/tools should I use? Any he
  11. More worm-like fossils, there were several of these things in this boulder. They are mostly very small, their diameter range from 2mm to 0.02mm. Some are hollow, some are sediment and some are preserved as some sort of crystals. I can't find anything on the web that would explain what these things might be. Anyone ever come across anything like these?

    Tiny Fossil

    Hello, I was organizing my fossils I got in Kemmerer, Wyoming, today. I stopped to look at a small Phareodus fossil I had. I noticed something I never noticed before. I took the fossil and put the odd thing I noticed under a magnifier. Picture it attached. I am not going to lie, it is TINY. It has ridges one one side as well as 7 lines coming from the dark part. Any idea what it is? Could it be a plant, or part of a fish? Jared

    Tiny sharp tooth ID please

    Hi there, found these teeth at a landsite in Venice, FL. I believe the three on the left could be barracuda? Is this even remotely close to a correct ID?! Heh. Also, what is the tiny more curved one on the far right from? It has a hole in top like it’s a tooth as well. Thanks for looking - Marie

    Tiny shell

    A few months ago I won an auction presented by @RJB. In it was a sand dollar that was encrusted by some coquina, so I worked on getting most of it off. When poking around in the stuff earlier this morning, I found a tiny little shell, just barely over 1/2 mm in size & very fragile. I got a couple pics of it with my dino lite, but to see detail I had to get creative. Had the onboard LEDs turned way down, but it was still washing it out, so I took 1 pic & shut them off. I then used a small LED flashlight with weak batteries & got a couple decent enough pics with some side lighting. H
  15. I have come across several tiny bivalves and gastropods while digging marine fossils out of sandstone boulders, they range in size from about less than 1mm to about 10mm. I was wondering, do all of these small specimen grow into the larger ones? Also, I can plenty photos of present day small specimen but I can not seem to find many photos of prehistoric small bivalves and gastropods, anyone have any links to tiny prehistoric shells???

    Lyme Regis fossil ID

    Hi! I found this on my recent trip to Lyme Regis, UK. It would be Jurassic in age. Found on the beach, so I can’t say what layer it came from unfortunately. Its striations are quite ornate and beautiful, and I’d love to know what it is! Bottom view
  17. Hi all. Only one of my first few posts on here as I'm primarily a collector. However, this would tie two of my hobbies together. Microscopy and fossils! I've gone through the pinned articles on prepping, cleaning, etc. The one thing I'm still not clear on is retrieval of the matrix as easy as digging a shovel full of dirt, running it through sieves, sorting, and hunting? I'm currently living in Biloxi, MS, so I assume I'll need to travel an hour or two to get out of the marine deposit area that is constantly in and out. Thanks so much!

    tiny shell ID?

    I found this in Washington state, Oligocene era. Its quite small but doesn't have the same horizontal striations of the other bivalves I found. It has vertical striations like a scallop (not that I suggest it is one)

    Thescelosaurus Premaxillary Tooth pt.1

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    I found this on an anthill and initially thought it was a croc/alligator tooth but after closer inspection I believe it's a premax tooth from the ornithopod. Thescelosaurus neglectus Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation

    Coral or shell?

    I bought a "little" package of Lee Creek matrix from @PaleoRon recently. It came in yesterday & I started digging. Lots of teeth & vertebrae so far & I'm barely into it. I found this one thing I'm not sure what it is, but it looks cool. 11 mm in length x 6 mm wide & stuck to a rock. Pics are at 55x magnification showing top, both ends (sort of) & both sides (sort of). Wasn't easy to get some of the pics, but here they are. Not sure if its a coral or shell or just some ordinary oddity.

    Micro fossil?

    I have this rock at least i think its a rock and was looking at it under a microscope ...if this is a fossil its the smallest I have found the white part is only half the size of a grain of rice if that. One pic is of it dry the others wet. its pretty just wish it was larger... has one large flower shaped patter and a couple smaller ones on it a lighter color

    Tiniest Ecphora Ever

    Last week on a trip to the Tar River I brought home several decent sized Ecphora quadricostata along with an assortment of other gastropods and bivalves. This was on the same trip I found the Gannet ulna. While cleaning matrix from one of the larger ecphora's today, I found this teenie tiny ecphora quadricostata. It is 13.6 mm (.53 inch) long and 11.4 mm (.45 inch) wide. Here it is in a standard 4.35 inch by 3.35 inch riker mount.
