  1. Some kind of belemnite?

    I'm guessing it's a squid of some kind, but I didn't think they split diagonally? Pictures to come.
  2. Acrocoelites

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a beautiful 15 cm long Acrocoelites (belemnite) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its special because of its great preservation and because it has an enlarged furrow, which was probably caused by an infection or a bite. One of my best belemnites until now! Two more pictures: The enlarged furrow:
  3. Runswick & Kettleness finds

    Had a walk from Runswick Bay to Kettleness and here’s a few of our finds
  4. Some of my collection

    Hello gang, As promised this is where I will share specimens from my personal collection, my grandfather's collection, and the collection that was donated to the university I work for. The latter is interesting as it is literally boxes of rock and fossils, with no information and my university does not have a geology or paleontology department. I'll be updating it every so often. Enjoy! NOTE: Some of the donated items have old school "labels" on them. If you see initials or such that you recognize, please PM me, as I am doing my best to properly catalog them properly as part of my job!
  5. Hi everyone! After the recommendations of @Manticocerasman, @gigantoraptor & @Joeri_R I joined the BVP (Belgian Association for Paleontology). Today I got my confirmation mail of the membership. I have long been wanting to go out on fossil hunts especially in my own region which consist of cretaceous limestone from the Maastrichtian. Luckily for me the next fossil excursion planned by the BVP is a trip to the Romontbos quarry in Eben-Emael which is only a 20 - 25 minute drive for me. So I did sign up for said excursion but since it's my first ever fossil hunt I want to go prepared and I was wondering if any of you have any tips on what tools and stuff to take with me to the quarry and what tools are best for excavating said limestone. I already know that a safety helmet, safety gloves and a fluorescent jacket are required and that safety glasses and steeltipped working shoes are recommended. I was also planning on taking enough water to stay hydrated, a backpack and a good strong bag to transport excavated fossils and perhaps some matrix to examine later. And I was planning on purchasing this kit from my regular fossil shop. Are there any other tools or items that I should bring? Or does anyone have some tips for an inexperienced beginner? Or is anyone is familiar with the location feel free to share. Thank you in advance and I look forward to my first hunt!
  6. Belemnite Squid Fossil

    Thought I would share this new piece we just got. Belemnite is fossilised squid over 100 million years from Coober Pedy, South Australia. Photos:
  7. Belemnite

    Hi everyone, Attached are pictures of three small fragments of belemnites I found three days ago in Yaxley, Cambridgeshire, UK. In the first picture, two of the belemnites are what I usually find in the lake but one of them looks significantly different. It looks like it is coated in thick white stuff (which I cant identify) which almost makes me believe this may not even be a belemnite fossil. Can anybody tell me what this is please? Is this even belemnite? Thanks, Bong
  8. Edwards Formation Rudist Identification

    A few weeks after my mother found her most recent cidarid in an Edwards formation check dam, I took a few minutes to swing by the same dam to see for myself what else could be found. Within minutes I dug up a cylindrical fossil that for a few weeks puzzled me due to its resemblance to a belemnite phragmocone. Then on Wednesday night I went to the DPS meeting and afterwards met briefly with Professor Andy Gale and showed him this specimen. He identified it as a rudist and immediately corroborated that with another DPS member familiar with rudists. What confused me is that it doesn't look like any of the other rudists that I have found in the Edwards. So far in my research I have found there to be 4 predominant rudist genera in the Edwards, which are listed in the tags. From pictures online I can't seem to definitively match this fragment to any of them, but it at least resembles some caprinid rudists I have seen online that are not from the Edwards. I know there must be many more rudist genera in the Edwards that I am unaware of, so I am hoping anyone more familiar with rudists than me could at least narrow it down to more than just a likely caprinid. The specimen is 3.75 cm long (Fig. 1), 4.2 cm in diameter at its concave end (Fig. 20), and 4.1 cm in diameter at its flat end (Fig. 22). I really know next to nothing about them so any help is appreciated. If anyone wants to compare this with the many other rudists that I have found from these Edwards dams, see the excessive amount of pictures in this thread. Fig. 1. Fig. 2.
  9. Today i carried this battlefield back up the cliff. I’ve been looking for a decent fresh one for a while. Unfortunately they are all quite heavy, like this one! I think a bit of pen work and it will reveal even more! anyone know the species?
  10. Recently I wasnt very active here but I managed to find a couple fossils in the meanwhile. A week ago I planned to visit the Pliensbach near Holzmaden in Germany. The Pliensbach is a type locality for the so called Pliensbachium, a time period in the lower Jurassic. On the way I saw an old pile with some jurassic rocks and stopped there. Luckily I was able to find some fossils there! Here is a picture of the view I had on the top of the pile: Belemnites are very common there but I found two really nice and big ones. Both are about 15 cm long and they seem to be Acrocoelites(?) ( @TqB ). They are one of my best belemnites until! I also found remains of a very rare layer with many sea urchins and sea urchin spines in it. Too bad I wasnt able to find some urchins but I found some cool plates with many spines. At the top of the pile I found some ammonites from the Sinemurian. I like the pyrite on them! The one I am holding is probably an Oxynoticeras and the other one is a Gagaticeras: Here is an overview: And one more detailed picture: Finally I found a piece of Loligosepia aalensis (vampyromorpha) and some fish rests. Here is a picture of the vampyromorpha: Alter my visit at the pile I was at the Pliensbach for a short time but I didn't really found something I can show. Maybe I will post one or two pictures tomorrow. Thanks for watching
  11. Hey folks, so I got a package with some various fossils I want to determine now. They were found between Herznach and Hornussen in Switzerland, so supposed to be Jurassic (Middle Jurassic). Following I have some belemnites. From left to right: 1-2: maybe hibolites and belemnopsis? 3: no idea 4-6: are these even belemnites??! 7: no idea what this is Thanks in advance!
  12. Belemnite Battlefields

    Would anyone have a PDF of the title below please, that I could use for some forthcoming research. Belemnite battlefields PETER DOYLE DAVID I. M. MACDONALD First published: March 1993
  13. Ichtyosaur rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    A kinda interesting combination out of an ammonite, a belemnite and a partial Ichtyosaur rib. It wasn't very difficult to prep but all in all it took about 3 hours. The belemnite is about 10 cm long and the partial rib is about 11 cm long. I found this one last year in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Some more pictures: And the unprepped rib:
  14. Acrocoelites

    From the album Holzmaden

    This one is a 14 cm long Acrocoelites from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Some more pictures: This is one of my favourite Belemnite from there.
  15. Acrocoelites (?)

    From the album Holzmaden

    Another belemnite (perhaps Acrocoelites) with a length of 10 cm from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale).

  22. I have a ton of belemnites lying around, the picture does not include all of them, just a few examples of what I have, there are probably around three more batches like this I just have not found them yet, (I will post pictures when they are found). Since these are not too spectacular I am also not looking for anything serious but if anyone is interested please contact me through this or PM.
  23. South Texas belemnite?

    Hello, first post here, found what I think might be a belemnite? Unsure though. Found in dirt near drainage ditch just outside loop 1604 South side of I35, map says pecan Gap chalk but I'm no good at IDing formations, any help is appreciated. PS I have other fossils I'm unsure of from another area, new thread or here? Thanks, Raymond.
  24. Fossil ID, Kristianstad, Sweden

    Hi, I posted a fossil ID question last week, and today I went back to the very same location and searched for a few hours. I think I found some more fossils, but they look very different from what I am used to find, so I'm not sure even all of them are fossils? Thank you for your time! All the best/ Linus ----- For reference this is the previous fossil ID question with the very detailed sponge -> 1. I'm pretty confident this is a fossil. I also found a belemnite at the same location that I added for reference. It looks round, I don't think it is broken more than the "top". 2. For the record, I didn't crack the stone, It was already cracked. Inside there is something that looks very much like a sponge or very large seed. But I'm puzzled by how the stone looks overall? 3. I'm not sure this is a fossil. But perhaps it is the base of a coral? 4. I'm not sure this is a fossil either... but there were a few samples that had this peculiar look. 5. There were also a few samples of these "sausage fingers", I placed them along with the belemnite for reference..
  25. @TqB Typical fractured belemnite Cylindroteuthis pusozianna guard but with curvature towards the tip, could this be a preservational feature or maby some sort of pathology. From the Lower Oxford Clay, Peterborough formation, Callovian stage.
