    Crinoid(?) from the Cotswolds, UK.

    I was just milling about, splitting Cotswold stone, when this caught my eye. In my swimming seas of gastropods, echinoids, crinoids, brachiopods, and bivalves, I've never come across anything like this! If anyone could shed some light, I would be much obliged. Early Oxfordian in ages, found in the Ancholme group. Around it were these fragmented plates of molluscs. It looks like a crushed stem of perhaps a crinoid? If it requires better photos, I can crack out the old camera and take a few! Cheers, Isaac
  2. Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can help me to identify an interesting find. It is a remarkably tooth-like 'rock' that I uncovered while digging my garden in Hampshire, UK, last year. As you can see from the photos, it features striking, alternating stripes of white and bluish-grey around the base. As the 'tooth' narrows, the stripes abruptly stop and the texture becomes plain, though the pointed tip is different again, being white, quite sharp and crystalline in appearance. When I found it, it was covered in a softer, sandstone-like material that I carefully removed with a wire bru

    Lutetian Phalange

    Hi guys, found this in the lutetian earnley formation of Bracklesham bay today and i was wondering if anyone could help me identify it, as bones like this are rare and i havent had any experience identifying them. I find turtle phalange the most likely but crocodilian or even mammalian is a possibility thanks for your help I must add, sorry for the awful photography, my lamp is broken so i needed to use flash
  4. Hi, I've found this really nice small gastropod, it's a golden colour (the photos don't show it well, it's just slightly above the larger bivalve). Last time I found one like it, I carefully brought it inside and put it safely down, the next morning it was broken into pieces, and nothing had knocked it. I don't have anything here to preserve it, is there anything I could do so that it won't break, or to preserve it? Many thanks.

    Odd stone for ID

    Hi helpful people I'm not a fossil hunter but I found a really intriguing looking stone while fishing some time ago. The dug out pattern on one side puts me in mind of seeds in a pod. Pretty sure someone here will know what it is fossil or not. Found in the UK on a gravel pit. Thanks in advance for any help.
  6. Hi, I found this ironstone fossil inside a rock that I split earlier. It was full of some very nice fossils. I was wondering what this could be? It looks like a tooth, as it has many small upward facing points on one edge, but I imagine it is something else as there isn't enamel. Found in Northamptonshire, UK. I believe it is from the early Jurassic. It measures 1.8cm lengthways. Sorry the photos are quite zoomed out, the quality of the picture gets worse the closer I go. Many thanks.

    Tiny tooth from the Cotswolds, UK

    Hi all! Most of you will know me as an invertebrate person, but, recently, I found something that may change my view! I was splitting some Jurassic Cotswold limestone, and I found a tooth. A tiny tiny tooth, which I believe to be a shark(?). In other chunks of the matrix, I found scales, and other hints to vertebrate life. It heavily fluoresces under UV light, and has these gorgeous lines along the flat crown. To the bottom right of the tooth, there is a partial mold of a brachiopod, which is pretty cool! Ancholme Group, Callovian - Oxfordian (166.1 - 157.3 mya). As a sister questio
  8. Hey everyone! I'm currently looking for any teeth from the Oxford Clay, especially those of plesiosaurs and teleosauroid crocs. In exchange, I can offer a variety of crocodile teeth from the Jurassic Tiourarén Formation of Niger like (but not limited to) the ones below.

    UK Sauropod vert?

    Hello, any thoughts on this? Sold as UK Sauropod from Abingdon. I've struck out so much with these, but fingers crossed ... 11 x 12 x 5.5cm Many thanks

    Theropod Vert, UK

    Hi. A second vert I like. From Abingdon, theropod. 6 x 5.9 x 5. Many thanks for the help
  11. I found these as a child in 1983 in Burton Bradstock,Dorset (UK). While there I happened to bump into a collector who quickly looked at them and wrote me a note on his quick guess at identifying them. Can someone take a look and let me know if his estimate was correct, any help identifying them is greatly appreciated. From the Great Oolite Series ~170Mya Ammonite, probably Dactylioceras commune Ammonite, probably Parkinsonia parkinsoni - Bivalves - The ridged, triangular one possibly belongs to the Cardia group, perh
  12. Sadly, this is something I don't have any provenance on. I think its probably from the Inferior Oolite of Dorset or at least South England. It came in a job lot of other Ammonites and I didn't pay it too much attention until I saw a small inclusion - around 3.5MM round. I've taken some photos with my digital 'microscope', and some with my camera too. You can spot the odd fella at the end furthest away from the flat cut base. I'm sure this is nothing; I haven't seen anything quite like it before though. I am curious if anyone has any ideas - I haven't seen anything sim

    Oxford Clay Plesiosaur Tooth

    Hey everyone! I recently got a few marine reptile teeth from various formations in the UK, including this partial plesiosaur tooth from the Oxford Clay. The enamel is only partially preserved, but appears unworn and allows for a good look at the enamel ridges of this section. The curved, rather robust shape of the tooth and the irregular distribution of the pretty prominent enamel ridges made me move away from ichthyosaur or machimosaurid as an ID, and seemed more in line with the many plesiosaurs from this formation. But that's where it got more tricky.

    Help with fossil ID for kids

    Hi, I hope this is ok to post! Whilst out on a walk we came across the attached fossil. Whilst I appreciate it doesn't seem much, its quite distinct and any help to identify it - and help educate the small hands which has been carefully cleaning it - would be very much appreciated. I might have some explaining to do that it isn't a t-rex We are located in Derbyshire, United Kingdom. If anybody has good references for teaching kids (6 year old and 3 year old) about fossils it would be great to have them.
  15. Found these a few months apart on a beach in Suffolk of the UK. I am pretty confident, after a little research, that the first bone here is a partial clavicle, although I have much less confidence about what. I read that they only exist in animals with prehensile forelimbs, so it could be some kind of ape? No marsupial presence in the Doggerland that I've been able to find. And, probably not early human, right? (I'm sorry if that's a silly question. It always crosses my mind.) The second, while extremely worn, I think it may be an antler fragment because it has numerous

    Jurassic Tubular Structure

    Hey all! Throughout my many years collecting from around the Cotswolds, there has always been one constant: these weird, tubular structures. Originally, I thought them to be corals, when I was much younger. More recently, I have IDd them as the ichnofossils of a Serpulidae. If anyone could confirm or disregard this ID, I would be very thankful!

    UK flint microfossil

    This is a sponge(?) microfossil in a fragment of a flint nodule. The flint has been quarried from the south of the British coast, which is mainly Cretaceous strata. It looks slightly like it's an imprint, but, upon further inspection, it is a broken off membrane. Currently (and slightly embarrassingly) I have only whittled it down to Echinodermata... I know, I know, spare me your applause, while my PhD's waiting! More sincerely, if anyone could shed some brighter light upon this, I'd be very grateful!
  18. I am brand new to fossils and this forum.. and just dug a large boulder up in the garden which is full of bedrock like this. Is this a leaf?

    Help with UK Dinosaur/Reptile Vertebra ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID this vertebra found in Gloucester, UK a few years ago. It's from a Jurassic site and I'm pretty sure it's a theropod vertebra but was wondering if anyone on the forum could help out? I have a theropod tooth from the same place which I might post soon in the hope of narrowing down an ID too. Thanks in advance!

    Tooth? In Oxford UK

    Complete newbie. This may not even be a tooth. But there’s been some building work near us (Oxford, UK) and diggers have unearthed lots of unusual rocks. We’ve found plenty of belemnites and now this. Any ideas?

    Fossil hunting in the UK

    Since i am going to the UK next week i stumbled on a website that gives a good overview and might be helpfull for anyone else visiting the UK. The locations shared are all coastal as far as I could tell, but it gives an overview of locations, geologic info, what can be found etc. http://www.discoveringfossils.co.uk/fossil-hunting-locations_of-great-britain/ Best regards
  22. Hi, I've been sorting through some of my Jurassic fossils from Northamptonshire and I've been wondering about these fossils. They are from the Early Jurassic, and I have found many bivalves and belemnites in this area. Could the greyish slightly curved fossil near the top of the image be a coprolite of some sort? It seems to stick to the tongue. There is also the two bits of ironstone with small bumps, which I was wondering if they could be related to bivalves? Lastly there is a slightly curved object that I have no clue what it is. Many thanks.

    Watton Cliff Microfossil ID?

    In October 2020 I went to Watton Cliff for my first foray into microfossil hunting. I have since dissolved some of the matrix I collected in 20% acetic acid and one of the things I found, amongst all of the crinoid pieces is this. I'm not sure what it is but I'm guessing it's part of a fish. Are the rings visible on the reverse side annual growth rings? The sample I collected from Watton Cliff is from a loose sandy layer within the Forest Marble and is Bathonian in age. Thanks for giving it a look, as I sort and take more pictures I may post more of what I've found. Ther
