  1. Hello, This was a tricky one to photograph as it is is 3mm long and, the shape and wearing of the tooth meant it wouldn't lay flat and the ridges of the tooth are only visible from certain angles. But I hope someone can help with an id. It is very small--3mm long, and a quarter of that is the bit of root attached.
  2. Hello, Another microfossil from Wealden. This is very small, 3mm. Now, it's recurved and looks theropod, but it is notable different than the typical small Nuthetes/raptor type teeth we get from there. It also looks different than croc teeth. It is small, 3mm with the tip missing. The base is largely encased in the matrix, but the little bit that is is exposed suggests it to be slightly oval in shape rather than round. There are no visible serrations. If anyone has any thoughts, that would be great, I plan to take it to a dinosaur museum I will visit soon fo

    Tiny Wealden Ornithopod tooth?

    Now, this was extremely difficult to photograph because of the size and the fact it is still in Matrix so only one side is visible. But I took photos of that side and the top of the tooth. It is 2mm long. So, it was found in the Wadhurst Clay formation layer of the Wealden Group. At the Cliff End bonebed. It looks too small and different shaped to be the Iguanodontids there--Hypselospinus and Barrilium. I can't see any small ornithopods from there, so likely I guess it will be undetermined. But I thought I would post it just in case, or if someone has seen similar. Coul
  4. Listed as a partial tibia and being hollow, possible theropod? Very small--just under 1inch. Is there any other possibilities for such a small, hollow bone? Could it be a type of small reptile for instance? Also, is it Tibia, or another type of bone? Wealden Clay, Hastings Sub Group Thanks for the help

    UK Ankylosaur ungual?

    Hello, any help with this? Advertised as a possible ankylosaur ungual. From Hastings Subbgroup, Wealden Clay, Sussex. Description says the grooves in the bone surface are consistent with thyreophoran unguals. Yet, when I compare the US ankylosaur unguals--I don't see a resemblance at all. Could be a quite worn one? 1.8 inches. Cheers
  6. This cast came from just west of chilton chine on the Isle of Wight. Wealden early Cretaceous. the sandstone it comes from is found all over the beach in blocks and is riddled with foot casts of mainly iguanodons. Sauropods, crocodiles and theropods also known in this location. I have not seen anything similar to this in the area, and given the heavy dinoturbation of this particular sandstone layer I think there is a good chance this is part of a dinosaur or croc tail drag cast. I can’t see how it can be made by anything plant based or geological, but would be ve
  7. I picked up this pair of flattened cones from the wealden clay at Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, uk last weekend. I couln’t find a similar hexagonal pattern from photos online or in the books I have on the area. Given the size and shape (roughly 3cm), I was wondering if they may be araucarian? The area is barremian. It’s also in very soft clay, so I’m currently trying to dry it slowly wrapped in damp tissue before adding paraloid with acetone to stabilise it. If a better method is advisable, I would really appreciate any advise. Thanks in adva
  8. An overlooked fossil turned out to be a new herbivorous dinosaur with an oddly shaped nose Brighstoneus simmondsi has a big lump around the nostrils, like a chunky alligator.

    Compton Bay Bony Bits Pebble

    Hello, I picked this pebble up from the beach at Compton Bay on the Isle of Wight, this area is Lower Cretaceous. The pebble looks like it’s full of bony bits, but I have no idea what they might be from and it might prove too difficult to tell. If anyone has some insight I’d be delighted to hear it. Scale accidentally in inches rather than cm in this photo Close up photos taken with microscope attachment to my phone.

    Pterosaur limb bexhill uk

    Hi tff I can’t see this can be anything other than a pterosaur limb bone? when I first saw it I thought it may be a burrow, and checked in case there was a crustacean sat inside. early Cretaceous, bexhill uk, floodplain. About 20cm apologies photos aren’t great

    Baryonyx jaw? Tooth?

    This fossil is listed as a Baryonyx tooth with possible jaw underneath. What do members here make of it? Is it possible to tell whether it's a jaw or not alongside the tooth? Formation: Wealden formation, Hastings.

    Wealden vertebra

    Hello Can anyone help me ID this vert please? It was found in Brook Bay, Isle of Wight. Any ideas on what it might have come from would be much appreciated.

    Hylaeosaur vertebra?

    I wasn't gonna bother with this cos its pretty waterworn. Hylaeosaur stuff is pretty rare Hylaeosaurus, from Wealden Clay, Hastings. I know it may be difficult to ID this one becausr of the condition as being Hylaeosaurus. But, any help would be great!

    Big Iguanodon Vertebra

    I’ve been sorting out some old fossils during the lockdown and just had a stand made for this big iguanodon vertebra. The stand was made by Friargate Forge in Preston. Before To this It’s hard to photo and prep was really difficult.

    Our fossil hunting holiday trip

    Natalie81 and I are back from our fossil hunting holiday. On the 20th of july we left for a long camping and fossil hunting week in the UK, we took the ferry in Calais to Dover, drove to Porthsmouth and the 2nd ferry to our 1st stop: 5 days on the Isle of wight. the 1st day on the Island, we prospected the beaches on the the south west of the isle where the Wealden cliffs could deliver some dinosaur remains.We had no luck this time. the 2nd day we went to the southern part of the Island where we could find some cenomanian ammonites in the chalk. T
  16. New discovery! Something different this time....very different! I was quite stunned when I first set my eyes upon this one. It's another dino tooth, but it doesn't look Iguanodontian. Look at those long ridges! It has a prominent primary ridge and is coarsely serrated. Around 6 mm across the crown. I have compared it to Iguanodontians including Barilium and hypselospinus and dryosaurids, but it doesn't match any of those. For a start the serrations are course on my dino tooth and on Iguanodontians the denticles go all the way over the tip of the crown and they are much finer in iguanodontians
  17. A fair amount of Cretaceous, Gault clay, Greensand Wealden fossils. They're not my field so I have no idea what they are. All are UK specimens and from Kent or Sussex. There aren't any reliable labels! I'm looking for vertebrates in exchange

    Isle of Wight jaw?

    My nephew spotted this down at Compton bay on the Isle of Wight. Sorry about the poor photos. The area is early Cretaceous wealden. The fossil is about 1.5-2cm long. Not sure what it could be but hoping it could be some sort of jaw. If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated. Many thanks.
  19. Here is one of my latest finds, a very big Lepidotes! I think my heart missed a beat when I first spotted this and turned it over as it was lying on its back! It is a rare three dimensional fish fossil. It's nice to have the pectoral fin preserved. I prepped some of the front teeth out, and they are very large. Still a lot of prep work left to do on this one.

    Dinosaur bone, wealden, uk

    Just wondering if there is enough of this bone to make it identifiable? I assume its the proximal section of a rib, but just checking if it could be part of a fibula or tibia? From the weald clay of sussex UK. Barremian . Thanks in advance. Henry
  21. It is a vertebra for sale as baryonyx, is it?
  22. This is a great fossil forum. A wealth of information. Lots to educate the passionate collector. I want to share a few more of my latest finds with members of this fossil forum. I hope you all enjoy the pics. These are some of my best discoveries made in my Hastings Wealden bonebed collection this past week. First off is this lovely Dromaeosaurid tooth. It took me a few hours, but I managed to prep out both sides. My best find in a while.

    Valdosaurus? tooth

    From the album: Dinosaurs and Reptiles

    A tiny (scale 1 mm) tooth from Wealden beds, Valanginian, Early Cretaceous. Unfortunately, can't get a better quality picture, but it highly resembles small ornithopod teeth.
  25. Firstly, my apologies if I am posting this in the wrong section of the website. I had a lovely morning searching down at Cooden Beach, Sussex uk. Very cold, very early start, setting off in the dark at 6am to get there for sunrise. After 3 hours of fruitless searching, and ready to give up, I came across this hybodus shark skull, showing the first few vertebrae. Cartilage doesn’t fossilise too well here, so looks a bit messy. As pleased as I am with it, I can’t help thinking the remaining section of the nodule was hiding nearby,
