    Name that Devonian hypostome!

    Hey sorry to bug everyone again so soon but I wound up having time for an outing today to my usual site and found this trilobite hypostome. Needmore formation, Devonian (emsian-eifelian) in WV. When I discovered a new species out here, the only two parts I couldn’t get a good representation of were the hypostome and the eye (found many eyes but they’re always crushed, must be a very thin/delicate structure). So I’m always on the lookout for both, but I have no knowledge at all of whose hypostome looks like what. I feel like if I can narrow down the list a little it’ll make it easier (for insta
  2. Hey everyone, hope you’re all doing well. I was on a walk the other day in a local nature preserve with my son when I stumbled across some fossiliferous stones in a pile. These contained mostly brachiopods, but one in particular had crinoids stems and another structure I wasn’t certain on. I’m not familiar with this place, looking up the area puts it somewhere in the Ordovician (either the conococheague, Stonehenge or stoufferstown formations) but these stones had been deliberately placed in a pile so I can’t say for certain if they came from the location or were brought in. So I have 2 q

    Marine reptile bones from US

    Hello, I have some fossil bones. Is it possible if I ask expert to help me to identify this? Thank you very much Mosasauroidea? North Sulphur River, Texas

    Adam's Early / Lower Devonian

    The Devonian period is known as "The Age of Fish", but could also be known as "The Age of Brachiopods." In the Early / Lower Devonian, brachiopods reached the height of their diversity towards its end in the Emsian. We see the ancestral groups occurring, lingulids, craniids, orthids, protorthids, pentamerids, rhynchonellids and strophomenids, as well as the later successful groups we have seen before such as atrypids, athyrids and orthotetids, plus the rise of spiriferids, spiriferinids and productids and the beginning of the terebratulids. By the end of the Devonian , several of these g
  5. Hi all. I very recently got back into paleontology and archeology. I would absolutely love to be able to look for my own fossils, but I’m having a very hard time finding up-to-date information on any public fossil site in the state of Delaware. I heard about the Canal and Pollock farm, but I can’t find any directions to the farm, and I heard the canal no longer has accessible fossils. any help regarding the subject would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Iwanted to know if the dark color is natural or not on this Agatized Coral Oligocene Withlacoochee river Tampa Bay Florida USA
  7. L.S., Hopefully the collective knowledge of TFF community will once again prove able to identify something that has stumped me. This time I need your help with these curious stem fragments! A good friend of mine purchased these at a mineral show on the US mainland. The specimens potentially originate from Kane County, Utah, but this provenance is far from bulletproof. It is quite likely, however, that they come from somewhere within the USA. The stems exhibit a hollow centre, with a ribbed internal surface (pith structure?). None of the specimens show nodes or other signs of axial

    Struthiomimus or ornithomimus claws?

    Hello! I have these 3 claws. The big one was identified as strutiomimus but I don't know the id of the other 2... The small hand claw has restoration on the base (not very good restored) They are from Garfield county. Thank you so much!!
  9. I found this while looking around at some dug up rocks in olney Illinois, and to me and my mother it looks like a fossil. I would like some help identifying it

    Green River Formation Fish?

    Hello, Is this a Knightia eocaena? It's from the Green River Fm. of Wyoming, USA, and measures ~8.5 cm long. Thanks.

    Postage advice UK to USA.

    I have had a bit of a weird issue occur. I have shipped to the US without issue a fair few times but lately I have run into some problems with prohibited goods. So I shipped a Mammoth Molar an Ammonite and a stand and the parcel got held up as I didn't declare the stand and mini Ammonite, fair enough no worries, I spoke with Fedex and they said I used a third party (parcel2go) so I must go through them as the agent. Nice and easy to fix and had to re state the contents of the parcel as a Woolly Mammoth molar fossil, and an Ammonite and a stand, all good sorted and done. I have
  12. I am looking for a couple of nice Rudists. Preferably complete or nearly complete. I will trade for just one if it is near museum quality. I have a 3 inch Aldebarania arenitea starfish that is missing a leg, but still a rare find. Its from the Peedee Form. in Rocky Point NC. It has a lot of detail visible and some light matrix which can be removed. If interested I am flexible and would like to see your offers. Inside the US only please.

    How Much Is It Worth?

    I have this dinosaur egg and it has these cool textures and in the picture it tells you it size and it’s weight, and it has no embryo inside, so can someone tell me how much this monster is worth

    Daspletosaurus tooth?

    Hello, a quick question. I bought this tooth as Daspletosaurus tooth 2 1/8. it was found in the Judith river formation (exactly?) is it conceivable that it is also a Gorgosaurus tooth? Or is it even possible to determine exactly? I would be very happy about your opinion. Best wishes.

  21. I recently purchased a rather large ammonite via auction from a seller in Singapore. It got held up in customs and I just received a notice of detention asking for documentation to prove it is legal. I wasn't aware that there is any law prohibiting import of fossils of extinct species from that region. Am I mistaken, or does customs just not know what they're doing?
  22. Echinoderm identification help please! Polished cross-section in the Kimmswick Limestone (Late Ordovician: Katian; Missouri, USA) used as facing stone at Missouri Botanical Garden. Possibly the paracrinoid Implicaticystis (once known as Comarocystites)? Specimen is ~25 mm across.
  23. Is it a "Turritella Agate" - chertified fossiliferous lacustrine limestone in the Eocene of Wyoming, USA.or a sample from Brazil or Madagascar?

    Newbie but old rockhound

    Hello, I have been fascinated with rocks and have studied their forms my own my whole life but have no formal training so I am looking here for some guidance on some of the things I see and find. I will be learning from seeing what is posted and discussed here. Most of my current knowledge centers around ancient rock tools so this is a new area for me. I found wht I believe to be a mineralized vertebrae yesterday in Delaware on the beach. It is dense (ie heavier than it appears to be) nothing else similar to it on the beaches as far as rock type or shape. Curious what, if anything, might be de

    A plant in limestone?

    This one has been sitting in my "interesting but I have no clue" pile for a while. When I found it, I was splitting limestone laying in the stream. I've found that when you split limestone, immediately after splitting you'll get a couple moments of a sharp looking specimen before things start to oxidize. The limestone is a very dark gray, or almost black color. You either see black limestone or white calcite pieces while splitting. I split this particular piece open and right in the middle was a 3-4 cm long, 8 mm wide gold looking rectangle in the middle of the flat broken limeston
