    Pycnodont Type Tooth or Coniasaurus?

    I found this tooth (2.75 mm length) while sorting micro-matrix from Post Oak Creek in Texas (Turonian). I had originally hoped this might be a posterior Coniasaurus tooth based on the more conical tooth type and root but have since found in publications that some Pycnodont tooth forms closely overlap posterior Coniasaurus teeth in general morphology. My guess would now be some kind of less common type of Pycnodont tooth form (the flat types are common in the samples) but I wanted to see what others thought.

    Cardabiodon?

    I recently acquired this nice little tooth from the Carlile Shale of north central Kansas, which I believe is Turonian in age. It looks like Cardabiodon ?venator to me, but I don't have much experience with the genus. What do others think? The tooth measures 27.17 mm along the slant and is 21.66 mm wide.
  3. During the Christmas holiday we had the opportunity to go on 2 field trips to the north of France. 1st one was just after Christmas when we visited the Turonian part of the cliffs. Here we found a couple of nice ammonites ( Mammites nodosoides and a realy nice Fagesia catinus ) and a big flint echinoid. (with @Natalie81 and @Euhoplites) The second trip was last weekend, but we had no luck with the weather this time and we had heavy rainfall for most of the day. Also lots of competition that day. Not a lot of fossils to be found that day: a small flint echi

    Ammonite ID (central texas)

    Hey y'all, here's an ammonite I found in what I'm fairly sure is a small, unmapped Eagle Ford outcrop. I'm hoping to use it as an index fossil, as the target species that I'm hoping this outcrop will produce occurs in the late cenomanian/early turonian Bouldin Flags member of the Eagle Ford formation. I find that the written descriptions that I've read about the bouldin flags geology are inadequate for my understanding, as it seems colors, shades, and degree of textures are up to the interpretation of the reader. Maybe I'm just overthinking that though. Hopefully this ammo helps.

    The Rio Puerco Valley

    The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils...it immediately caught my attention...lit a match...became a place I am always eager to revisit...search...learn about... ...and in roaming it, have learned about myself. Many of my adventures in the Puerco are posted here, here...here and here...and here. From here on out, my excursions will be shared here. May you find happiness in your hunting. -P.

    Cretaceous plant ID, Croatia

    Hello, I found these two plants in platy limestones on Dec.19.2021. in Bojići, near Trogir, Croatia. Geology is late cretaceous-turonian. Can they be identified tro some degree? Thanks
  7. From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    A small 2.5g representation of a 41.1g lot of amber from the old Crossman Clay Pit locality. This amber is mostly unsearched, and a few specimens I have inspected contain some inclusions; preparation will be needed to identify these inclusions, however. Spectroscopic and chemical analyses indicate this amber was produced by distinct, related species within the Cupressaceae family. The material from this lot was collected in the early 1990's by the late Kevin Kropiki; he collected at this locality in association with representatives from the American Museum of Natural History: his significant c

  8. This weekend we had some nice weather for this time of the year , so we went to the beaches in the north of France for a stroll with the dog and hopefully some fossils. It is a 2h drive from were we live, so we got there around 10 o’clock. That’s around the time that the tide was starting to lower again, so we had all day access to the beach. We started our walk in Sangatte, just under Calais. And went south following the Turonian chalk cliffs. After a while we spotted our 1st fossil echinoid between the flint pebbles on the beach. Further South, the retreating tide started to
  9. Hi everyone, Last week after getting lots of recommendations from people I spend a couple of days at Cap Blanc Nez in France to look for some fossils. And while it wasn't to most bountyfull hunt I did have a lot of fun and I was very pleased with the little finds that I managed to do. We had very nice weather, it was sunny and the temperature was just perfect for fossil hunting, and the cliffs and beach (and landscape overall) were absolutely stunning. The fossils in Cap Blanc Nez date back to the Cretaceous and there are deposits from the Turonian, Cenoma
  10. Dear Fossilforum members, I was wondering if the echinoid on this piece of matrix is indeed a Gauthieria radiata and if so, does that appoint this fossil to the lower, middle or upper Turonian? The shark tooth is a Squalicorax falcatus and the piece was found in the Ardennes departement of France. I know the age of a few locations nearby, but the age of the location where this piece is from is nowhere to be found in literature. I also am not sure if I may say where it was (it took a lot of questioning to find out where it can from haha). Therefore I hope that the echinoid perh

    Ancyloceras ( with spikes )?

    I have several Heteromorphs but none have such large protrusions. Are these called horns? I worked on this for an hour trying to expose as much as possible, it's buried in bacculites. Found in shale in north Irving TX, inc. pic of other ammonites found there.

    Levnesovia transoxiana

    Stabilized with Butvar B-76; repaired using an unspecified cyanoacrylate. Identified by Dr. Alexander Averianov as a sacral vertebrae of a juvenile Levnesovia transoxiana. The specimen is either from Dzarakuduk or an excavation near the city of Uchkuduk many years back.

  15. It has been to long since we posted a fieldtrip, but the curent worldwide situation did hamper our fossil hunts. A few days before Chritmas the situation in France changed and we could again go to the beaches in the North for fossil hunts. The 24th we went to the "Grand Blanc Nez" to prospect the turonian boulders en hopfully score a few big ammonites. This time we were als prepared for big finds: we took a handcart with us, because the previous time we had trouble to bring a couple of ammonites back to the car due to their weight ( 2 km on foot with more than 30 kg of ammonites

  19. Hello forum members! With the new Coronavirus raging across the world, I thought it would be nice to start some kind of advent calendar, using my own Squalicorax collection. Everyday I will post one or multiple Squalicorax teeth from one location. Let's see what ends sooner, my collection or the virus outbreak. I will start with the oldest tooth from the Albian substage and end with the teeth from the uppermost substage; the Maastrichtian. The first one is the oldest and also one of the smallest teeth in my collection. Unfortunately it is so sma
  20. Back in July of 2009, I was crawling around an Upper Cretaceous Eagle Ford Formation (late Turonian) site that was exposed by recent excavations. There were many amazingly preserved marcasite / pyrite encrusted ammonites and other fauna to be found. However, one of 'gems' of that site was a beautiful, tiny regular echinoid. I was fascinated with it and I made additional discoveries that I wrote about in an article on The Fossil Forum. (early images) In trying to establish an identification, I checked with several experienced Texas collectors and none of them recognized it. When that h
  21. having been unable to go out a full day to search for fossils for several months due to health problems, thanks to a recent improvement I went yesterday about 100 km from my home to see a site where rudists were found. The first fossil encountered was a huge colony of cone-shaped bryozoans which had fallen and overturned in a depression. (can be 150kg?). I forgot to take my centimeter scale, so in the photos there is my foot, my hand or my fingers .... Then, I found a rock rich in small Exogyra and rare Rhynchonella. Finally, the rudists were there, in a wall (only for the
  22. Hi everybody! Today i wanna show you one of my dearest ammonites...Choffaticeras segne! Making a search by keywords in TFF, i found only three results for this species...so i decided to enlarge the number! Now i present you my Choffaticeras segne: it comes from Goulmima in Morocco, belongs to Turonian (Upper/Late Cretaceous), it is 19cm in height and 1.461kg in weight. This specimen has been polished in both sides, obviously. It's very decorative and it makes its good looking part in my living room. I love its external sutures, how do you call this kind of sutu

  25. Good tides and a promising weather forecast and we were ready to go for a trip to the French coast ( Cap-Blanc-Nez) High tide was set for 8AM, so we left around that same time, getting there when the tide was starting to go down giving us a whole day of opportunities to search. First stop was the beach of the “Grand Blanc Nez” with the Turonian cliffs. Since our last visit there, there have been high tides and multiple parts of the beach were cleared of the sand. The prospection of the loose boulders revealed for me a large Mamites nodosoides and a Morrowites wingi. I was especi
