    Publication request

    Hi once again Would anyone have access to the following journal article? A palaeoecological review of the lower Gatun Formation (Miocene) of Panama with special emphasis on trophic relationships Matthias Alberti & Sonja Reich Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments volume 98, pages571–591 (2018) As usual thanks a bunch! Mike
  2. Hello, I purchased this specimen a few months ago at an estate sale. No label, no information. The fossil has been split lengthwise, polished, and the interior void space looks to have been filled with a sort of yellowish epoxy. Each half measures approx. 4.75 cm long x 2.5 cm across. Original depth before cutting looks to have been around 2.5 cm. I believe it is a Turritella, in a distinctive layered, calcareous concretion. I was able to find a photo of an almost identical specimen on a college professor's website, but I was unable to get additional information after following

    Turritella incrassata

    From the album: The Mollusca of the Banjaard

    An incomplete specimen of a Pliocene species. This species is easily distinguished from the other Turritella species by its much thicker and better defined ridges. Status: extinct Fossil occurence: uncommon

    Is this Turritella?

    I'm 90% sure these are turritella I collected. Maybe someone knows the species but I doubt it. If these are in fact turritella, let me know.

    Found in Grapevine, TX

    Hello, These fossils were found around Grapevine Lake. I believe the one rock has oyster shells and turritella shells. I'm not an expert by any means, but are the fossils in the other rock ammonite? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks

  9. Hi, I found this external mold shell on Honeymoon beach, Florida USA. It's about 2" long and 3/4" on the widest end. Unfortunately it is broken and worn on the right edge, but I still thought it was a cool find. It's limestone and has about 3 more shell imprints on the flip side (not shown). This was an unusual shape so I made a clay mold to better see the shape (3rd photo)I looked through many seashell books and narrowed it down to Eastern Turritella or Florida Cerith. What do you think?
  10. I found this shell cast on Honeymoon Island, Florida, USA. As you can see from the photos it's a complete shell cast and measures about 4 x 3 1/2 inches. I did some research and found similar pictures that looked like Turritella Shell. Would the Forum agree with this ID?? If so I read that this is an extinct species of fossil sea snail. Is this correct? I appreciate your feedback. Thank you!

    Turritella fossils

    Love these little guys, they are a distinctly different color than the rest of the pitch black fossils I generally find at myrtle beach, and the crystal like lines are dazzling to me. I believe they are in the turritella family but any info is always welcome:)

    Purse State Park 12/22/17

    There are so many testaments to Purse State Park being a fantastic fossil collecting site online, and because of this I thought I’d go there myself and test my luck. I kept on hearing about quantity, and how Purse yields more fossil sharks teeth per trip than just about any other local site. I was blown away when reading that people come home from a single trip with hundreds of teeth, and of decent size and quality too! And so a few days before Christmas, I packed up my gear and made my way across the border and down the Potomac to Purse State Park.The drive there was just fine, and the park i

    Turritella alticostata

    A nice Turritella. Not uncommon at this site, but rarely in such good shape.

    Fossil Snail Sea Shell Turritella plebia St. Mary's formation, in the Calvert Cliffs, of Calvert County, Maryland Miocene Period, 23 million years ago Turritella is a genus of medium-sized sea snails with an operculum, marine gastropod mollusks in the family Turritellidae. They have tightly coiled shells, whose overall shape is basically that of an elongated cone. The name Turritella comes from the Latin word turritus meaning "turreted" or "towered" and the diminutive suffix -ella. The Gastropoda or gastropods, more commonly known as snails and slugs, are a large taxonomic clas

  17. This might prove very easy for more advanced fossil collectors to answer. In 2004, the floodwaters from Hurricane Gaston swept away a large amount of soil and clay from an existing stream near the backyard of our suburban house near Mechanicsville, Virginia, exposing a clay bed littered with numerous fossils. The turritella you see in the picture occurs the most frequently of all our finds, and the small clam fossils are a close second. We've recently started to find more of the kind of scallop fossil in the image, which we guessed was a chesapecten jeffersonius, Virginia's state fossil. I fou
  18. Hi, Had a family break at Waton on the Naze, Essex over the New Year period and spent 5 mornings combing the beach with the wife and kids. It was remarkably unproductive on most days (as well as freezing!) and so our usual haul was very much reduced. This is what we found: Glycymeris and a couple of Turritella - Red Crag A few nice examples of sharks teeth (striatolamia) - London Clay ..and my personal favourite, a piece of whale bone (balaena sp) from the unconformity between the Red Crag and London Clay. Apparently the waxy appearan

    Ray plates, snaggletooth, turritella, and shell assortment.
  20. I have lived in my neighborhood for the last 11 years and have never explored the cliffs along the beaches. I usually head north to one of the parks to look for shark teeth, but after seeing some of the shells on this site I thought I would take a look to see what I could find about 5 minutes away. I seemed to find just a few turritella along the cliffs. I also came upon a crisp $100 bill. Overall not a bad use of an hour.

  22. The linked photos are my first attempt at making thin sections of fossils. I have labelled the presentation as preliminary as I was not confident in grinding a fossil slice to a minimum thickness. The result is the slides are a tad too thick. I will give them a further polish with the 600 grit wheel. The fossil was cut across the short side to produce two middle slices. The other three are chips from the top and bottom of the specimen. There are (to me) obvious fossils in the thin sections, but identifying the Turritella is left as an exercise for the observer. The photos are all stitche

    Conical Gastropod?

    Hello, All: I'm a new member, live in Colorado but, mostly collect fossils on the family ranch in central Texas near Bandera. The rock there is lower Cretaceous limestone. However, I'm mainly interested in some (Edwards Formation?) chert nodules that are scattered here and there all over the ranch. Some of the nodules have fossils. I've looked around the Fossil Forum site and I'm very encouraged. There seems to be lot of expertise, covering many types of fossils. Great. I've been able to identify some of my chert fossils but, not all, not by a long shot. Attached photos show a fossil
