  13. Utah's Oldest Dinosaur Fossil

    Found this in the Forums Facebook pages its a paper that describes a sacrum from the Chinle formation of Utah. The Dinosaur Triassic record in Utah is pretty slim and this discovery helps increase their knowledge base. We've recently had posts on Triassic teeth and although this paper does not help us in that area it provides more information on late Triassic dinosaurs of the American west. https://www.utahgeology.org/openjournal/index.php/GIW/article/view/22

  15. From the album alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Size is 40cm x 18cm. Austrotrachyceras austriacum MOJS. (ribbed with nodes, 4cm diameter) on the left lower half, Joannites sp., Arcestes gaytani, Megaphyllites sp., Mojsvarites agenor(on top), small Sirenites sp. and several orthocone Nautiloids and bivalves.
  16. From the album alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Small slab (15cm x 11cm) showing a fauna from the Triassic/Carnian/ lower Julian zone of Trachyceras aon. The biggest black Syringoceras(Nautilus) measures about 4cm. Ammonoids on the slab are Celtites cf. steindachneri MOJS.(ribbed), Sphingites sp., Lobites elipticus, Sirenotrachyceras sp., Monophyllites sp., Arcestes sp., Asklepioceras sp.
  17. From the album alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Cladiscites cf. striatissimus (MOJS.) 5cm, and Tropites subbullatus(HAUER)4cm. Old slab from the historical Raschberg location of Mojsisovics.
  18. Cochloceras suessi

    From the album alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Block with several Cochloceras suessi MOJS., a heteromorph ammonoid of the late Triassic Rhaetian stage. The size of the gastropod shaped ammonoids is 3-4cm. Other visible ammonoids are Arcestes sp. and Megaphyllites sp.
  19. Tropites fauna

    From the album alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Upper Carnian/Tuvalian ammonoid fauna from the historical location/ditch on Vordersandling. The shown ammonoids come from a small lense that was found by me several years ago. No coarser ribbed Projuvavites was found only Juvavites bacchus MOJS. Therefore I range this fauna to the dilleri Zone. Tropites aff. subbullatus, Paratropites sp., Discotropites sp., Megaphyllites sp., Sandlingites cf. oribasus and Arcestes sp.
  20. Triassic Tooth

    This is my first post, so please bear with me. I found this tooth this summer in the Rendonda formation in Quay county New Mexico. This should date it to the late Triassic, 202-204 mya. The area where it was found contains almost exclusively Phytosaur fossils, but I am 99% certain that this one is not. It measures about 2.5 cm in length and has one edge with fine serrations. Based on the general shape and serrations, I am guessing some sort of theropod, however I do not know enough about other crocodilian species such as Postosuchus to rule something like that out. Any help would be appreciated, and if you need more pictures/information, feel free to let me know!
  21. Monophyllites simonyi (HAUER)

    From the album alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Monophyllites simonyi (HAUER) from the Hallstatt limestone of Austria. Size is 8 cm. Found in the upper part of the austriacum zone.
  22. Trachyceras cf. hekubae MOJS.

    From the album alpine triassic Ammonoids

    Trachyceras cf. hekubae MOJS. from Triassic/Carnian/Austriacum Zone, Hallstatt limestone of Austria. Diameter is about 9cm. Below is a fragment of Neoprotrachyceras thous (DITTMAR). This ammonoid and the orange colour of the rock indicates the austriacum zone.
