  1. The photos below show two juvenile/hatchling ichthyosaurus species from Yunnan, China. They are from two different localities but are close by. As they look quite different, are they different species? And any idea what species they are?

    Anomalocaris from Yunnan?

    Hello, I just got this supposed Anomalocaris fossil from Yunnan of China, Cambrian in age. It's about 1.5cm length, and I belive a section from the end of an appendage. I was wondering if someone could determine a more specific species ID for it? Hopefully my phone's camera is enough to show the details. The specimen has quite clear preservation of the ventral spines, as well as their auxiliary spines coming off the front and back, and based on that I am thinking something like Anomalocaris kunmingensis (https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Anomalocaris-kunmingensis-sp-nov-from-the-
  3. Take a look at this Asialepidotes shingyiensis from Yunnan, China. It is a very nice fish. But do you see what's the problem?
  4. Alternative combination: Alalcomenaeus illecebrosus. Taxonomy from Liu Yu et al. 2007. Diagnosis for Leanchoilia illecebrosa Hou 1987 from Liu Yu et al. 2007, p. 264: "A species of Leanchoilia with rami of ʻgreat appendageʼ with poorly visible distinction between shaft and filament, and with a single hook on the outermost ramus. Body comparatively slim. Rostrum pointed anteriorly, not extended into a snout. Tail piece dagger-shaped."

    Cyclopygid trilobites

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    A really cool piece of three Cyclopyge? These trilobites were thought to be pelagic.
  6. cameronsfossilcollection

    Ampyxina sp.

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    Possibly A. bellatula. Gifted to me through a secret Santa trade with Chris Koemp (@Kompsfossilsnminerals)
  7. cameronsfossilcollection

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    Decently preserved Asaphid that I purchased from Marc Haensel a while back.
  9. cameronsfossilcollection


    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    I’ve heard lots of suggestions, from Tentaculites to a fragment of a larger organism - I’m not sure what this is.
  10. cameronsfossilcollection

    Unknown Brachiopod

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    Cool brach!

  13. cameronsfossilcollection

    Unknown Trilobite

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    Not sure on the ID for this bug. As stated earlier, these guys are formally undescribed - though I’m sure there’s a genus out there that matches this blind trilobite.
  14. cameronsfossilcollection

    Phillipsinella sp. cephalon

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    The head of the Phillipsinella. See other images for the body.

    The body of my Phillipsinella.
  16. cameronsfossilcollection

    Phillipsinella sp.

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    Possibly my least common Pupiao trilobite, I can’t find much information online regarding this genus. If anyone has an articulated example of this Asaphid, please share it in with me!
  17. cameronsfossilcollection

    Nileus sp.

    From the album: Pupiao Formation Collection

    Possibly Nileus armadillo, but I can’t be sure as, previously mentioned, bugs from this formation are formally undescribed.

    Unidentified Trinucleiid Trilobite

    An uncommon find in the Pupiao, apparently.

    Bathycheilus-like trilobite I purchased from Marc Haensel a while back.
  21. Although originally described as an alga, F. gyrata is now regarded by some authors as a coprolite (e.g., Steiner et al. 2005). Taxonomy from GBIF.org. Description and remarks by Chen and Zhou 1997., p. 88 : "Thread cylindrical, unbranchial, with a uniform, flattened width of 1.2mm and a preserved length of at least 20cm. Surface bears a tightly and helically coiled structure. Remarks: This is the most abundant alga in the Chengjiang biota. Most of the thread are preserved within a microturbidite mud layer and show irregular twisting, indicating that the thread was extremely flexible. Spec
  22. This piece of incomplete fossil is from Yunnan, China. Same locality with Keichousarus, Triassic Formation. Any idea what is that? It looks like there are broken bones.

    Lower Cambrian trilobite help!

    Hi there! In my excitement to open a box of fossils gifted to me, I mixed up a couple of labels - hopefully someone out there can help me fix my mix-up @piranha The labels are Paleolenus lanlenoisi and Yunnanocephalus yunnanensis - both from the Lower Cambrian of Yunnan, China. Photo #1: Photo #2: Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    Isoxys paradoxus Hou 1987

    Vannier et al. 2006 assume that Tuzoia and the also Cambrian genus Isoxys are possibly representatives of the class Thylacocephala. Emmended diagnosis for the genus Isoxys by Garcia-Bellido 2009, p. 1224: ”Arthropod with one pair of cephalic appendages and a uniform series of at least 13 pairs of biramous appendages. Long, narrow body covered almostentirely by a bivalved, very thin unmineralized carapace. Prominent, stalked, spherical to pear-shaped lateral eyes protrude beyond the anterior margin of the carapace. Each valve armed with prominent cardinal spines. Dorsal outline straight or

    Found with Keichousaurus

    This piece is found along with Keichousaurus in Yunnan, China. That is, it’s Triassic. Any idea what is that? The “spines” measure about 10cm in length.
