    Frustrating Turonian vertebra

    This vert was found in 91 million year old Eagle Ford strata, and while I assume it can only be fish at this point, it doesn't match any of the fish verts I compared it to ( Enchodus, Xiphactinus, Protoshyraena and Pachyrhizodus (I'm not even sure Pachyrhizodus and Protosphyraena were around in the Turonian, were they?) My thoughts below - please teach me otherwise if wrong: I don't think shark due to the thick, bony processes Not Mosasaur or Plesiosaur The placement of the processes is similar to Ichthyosaur, but that would be extremely unlikely for this time
  2. ThePhysicist

    Coniasaurus tooth

    From the album: Squamates

    A small tooth from a small aquatic reptile that lived during the Turonian of North TX. They are small, squat teeth with textured enamel, and possess only an indistinct distal carina (no mesial carina).

    Cretaceous Fish Tooth

    Please identify this tooth Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Tyniec, Cracow). Length: 8mm

    Cretaceous Shark Tooth?

    Anybody can identify this Tooth? Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Tyniec, Cracow). I think it's a Shark Tooth, or other fish but I don't know which exactly.
  5. A week ago my friend Diego (@fossilesdecapblancnez) sent me a message that he'd found a big lewesiceras peramplum (lower turonian, grand blanc nez formation). This is the ammonite in situ. He decided to leave it alone and come back with me a week later to extract it and carry it of the beach since it's huge. So that makes it yesterday. He arrived a bit early after high tide but luckily the ammonite was still there as the site is frequently collected. As you can see the pebbles moved quite a lot in a weeks time. It's good and bad, lots of erosion but a
  6. I would like to share this document: Vertebrates_GosauGroupofGams_2019.pdf Cretaceous Research, 2019, 7 MB The Alpine Gosau (Upper Cretaceous) is not particularly famous for its vertebrate remains. But when you process about 1000 kg of sediment, you will see, that there was indeed "something" with a backbone around in that area during that time . Franz Bernhard
  7. The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils. For many years now, I have scoured its Late Cretaceous shales and sandstones in search of ammonites. Somewhere along the way, my fascination with the ornament grew into an investigation of its enviornment. Last week at the New Mexico Geologic Society's Spring meeting (program), I made my first venture into the world of paleontological science. With the help of Dr. Spencer Lucas of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, I presented a poster/abstract (Foley & Lucas 2017.pdf) exhibiting my ideas. I r
  8. I've enjoyed many trip reports that @Manticocerasman made about the chalk cliffs at Cap Blanc-Nez that I decided to make one myself. A big tide, warm sunny weather and the summer season approaching... I only like one of those 3, a big tide The goal was to visit the albian gault layers if they were visible, but they were covered with sand. I've collected some of cenomanian fauna already thus I decided to visit the turonian boulders. Hunting in the turonian is not easy, it can be hours before you see something and everything has odd shapes that could be something. Th

    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.
  10. Found this beauty recently in a middle turonian exposure of the Eagle Ford formation in Texas. Knowing the age, (91 million years) I'm able to rule out quite a few options, but I'm still stuck between P. anonymous, P. mammilaris, and the Ptychodus that Shawn Hamm will describe this year, which has also been found at this location. I don't think it's decurrens or marginalis, but I'm not great at Ptychodus ID yet so perhaps they're still options. It's much larger than the P. anonymous teeth I've found, and being (perhaps) a posterior or lateral file tooth, I'm unsure of how to ID mam

    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.

    Kuji Amber (Tamagawa Fm., ~91.05-85.2 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    “Kuji Amber” Hirono, Iwate Prefecture, Japan Tamagawa Fm. (Kuji Group) ~91.05-85.2 Ma Total Weight: 1.3g Longest Specimen: 10mm Lighting: Longwave UV Entry five of ten, detailing various rare ambers from European, Asian, and North American localities. Studies on this amber, and Japanese ambers in general, are especially fascinating from a pharmaceutical point of view. In early 2012, a particular diterpenoid was extracted from Kuji amber that has been shown to possess powerful anti-allerge

  14. 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

    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.
  16. 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.

    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
  19. From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    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

  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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.
