  1. Hope this isn’t inappropriate for this forum. For everyone who was following my excavations, Dr Klein presented his findings. Dr Lucas is coming back later this year to pick up a few more tons of my tracks.
  2. Hi everyone! I'm new to fossil hunting and I found a few interesting rocks underneath Sea Cliff Bridge near Wollongong in Australia. There was a lot of coal in the area for context. I will attach some photos of the rocks I found, I'm particularly interested in the small white (quartz??) lines intersecting the black part of the stone. Any help would be hugely appreciated! Thanks

    Tail of a Triassic Marine Reptile

    Here is a tail of a marine reptile from the Triassic period. It was found at Fuyuan, Yunnan Province of China, at the same strata with Keichosaurus. Does it look like the tail of Yungguisaurus liae or Placodus inexpectatus? It is 56cm in length.
  4. 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

    Preservation of colour in fossil shells

    Hi all, Some time ago I found this shell in (what I believe to be) the French Upper Muschelkalk (Triassic). Now I'm not into shells myself, but to judge from the remains of operculum on the underside of it, the specimen concerns an oyster. Most strikingly, however, the shell has a pattern of darker-coloured lines that do not correspond to any three-dimensional/elevational differences on the shell surface - which is, in fact, entirely flat. I haven't seen this on a fossil shell before. Now when doing a Google search for my response on whether it would be possible for cru

    Amphibian bones

    Been searching my upper level recently- Shinarump Formation, late Triassic. Finding some decent bone pieces. Most likely amphibian, particularly Metoposaurus.

  14. Hi everyone, First time posting here so please forgive any dodgy formatting. I found this bivalve shell in the Upper Triassic limestone beds at Aust Cliff, Gloucestershire, UK. I posted this on Reddit and only one person managed to have a guess at a Ctenostreon bivalve genus, but they are not sure. The spines on the edge of the shell seem a bit too evenly-spaced out in my opinion. (By the way, the grooves surrounding the shell are from where I've engraved the fossil a little. I don't have the equipment to fully extract it, so I have no idea what the outside
  15. The Mesozoic is an area that is sorely lacking in my collection. I don't know why, but I just never got around to collecting in it. I never fell in love with dinosaurs or mososaurs like a lot of other people. That was until fairly recently, when I finally took it upon myself to diversify my collection and get to know better my area's (and in some ways own backyard!) geology and paleontology. I set out to discover more about Maryland's Mesozoic Park. I guess it would be best to start off from the beginning. I started the journey not knowing what I'd find, but knowing w

  18. Hey all, I am really interested in finding some of the southeastern PA track fossils. I realize it is a huge stretch to ask for a locality but figure it is worth a shot to see if anyone wants to share information over PMs regarding locations or other useful information on this area. Thanks in advance!
  19. I have collected quite a few interesting fossils from the Redonda formation, and I will be posting to this thread as I take photos. Two very large vertebrae to start- likely belonging to the Phytosaur Redondasaurus.
  20. I have gone through all of my Redonda formation teeth, and think these ones are likely theropod, possible Coelophysis. Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Tooth 1: 7mm long, serrations ~8/mm along middle of posterior edge.
  21. Going through some rocks collected in one of the triassic basins of the Newark supergroup in Virginia, and this popped out. Length is 5/8 inch, width is 1/8 inch. It looks toothy to me… any ideas?
  22. Last week I stumbled upon a deposit that might be yielding a bit more. Several bone fragments, a vertebrae (I think), lots of boney plate material, and a small tarsal bone. I have collected this area for years an never found as much in one spot as I did last week. Going back with proper tools for looking further. Wish me luck.

    Bull Canyon Theropod?

    Hi y'all, found this partial tooth in micromatrix from the Triassic-aged Bull Canyon formation. Serration density looks to be 9-10 / mm on the dc. Could it be dinosaurian?

    Triassic Cephalopods fro Epidaurs

    Hi Guys, I'm taking advantage of this period of staying at home to recheck and better identify the fossils from my collection. Someone can tell me the genus and species of these triassic fossils of Epidaurus. Thanks in advance and please stay home if you can !!
