  1. corals

    Hi everybody, last week i found some corals and i need your help to try to identify them because i'm no expert at all. For those who can't visualize the tags like me, it is the cenomanian from south-west of France. Thanks in advance. 1)
  2. Rudist or other bivalve ?

    Among my founds i have Rynchostreonae, Pycnodonts, and also Rudists : a Polyconites, some Sphaerulites and some pieces of Ichthyosarcolites. But i wonder about this piece. Is it a Rudist, an Oyster, or something else ?
  3. Sponge or else ? 1

    Hi, in my recent founds i have some items that look like sponges, but i need help to try to ID them. I begin with this one. Its little holes make me think it could be some kind of sponge, if so, a branched one. But in reality, i have no idea of what else it could be. The scale is in centimeters.
  4. Sponge or else ? 2

    I present you this tiny thing that sticks on an oyster shell. I believe it has great chances to be a sponge, what do you think ?
  5. Hi, last week i was in holidays in the department of Charentes Maritimes, in a place where you have kilometers of uncovered seabed and where the nearest isle is reachable by foot when the tide is low.
  6. The Kem Kem Beds are full of poorly understood Dinosaurs but the isolated material that wind up in collections are beautiful. The Beds consist of three formations: Ifezouane, Aoufous and Akrabou. I believe the first one is your primary Dinosaur producing layer in the Cenomanian age. The teeth that we see bombarding us at shows and online give us clues to the spectacular dinosaurs that roamed that region. Claws give us another perspective and by associating them to other regions we obtain more hints of what they looked like. A Dinosaur that no one needs introduction is Spinosaurus. I happen to have a beautiful hand and two foot claws. A small hand claw also appears to be that of an infant Spinosaurs or another related species. Another Dinosaur that collectors are familiar with is Carcharodontosaurus. I cannot say definitively that this is a hand claw from one but it closely resembles those found in South America.

  8. Rhynchodercetis sp

    From the album North Africa

    Given to me as a gift, this is Rhynchodercetis from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco; possibly R. yovanovitchi, although I cannot make a definitive identification. The specimen is complete, although the state of preservation is not superb; the skull, vertebra,ribs, and rays in the fins are all visible, but not in fine detail.
  9. Unknown Ammonite

    A couple of years ago, while on a romp through the Rio Puerco Valley, I found this ammonite. Since then, I have attempted to find a proper i.d. for this specimen through literature and documentation of New Mexico's Late Cretaceous ammonites. With very little luck, the closest resemblance were ammonites in the subfamily Puzosiinae, which are not documented from New Mexico. Today I decided to show the curator and the ammonite researcher at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. Good news...they did not know what it was! ...pretty exciting. Anyhoo, I have donated it to be studied but figured I would post it here as well. Unknown ammonite from the Late Cretaceous (Cenomanian) Paguate Mbr. of the Dakota Formation - New Mexico, USA. I doubt they'll be jumping on this right after lunch, but I will let ya'll know the results as I do. Happy hunting, -P.
  10. A trip to Haute Normandie cretaceous cliffs ( The plasterers' balad ) - Part 1 During three days we travelled along the Haute Normandie coast. The area we ventured in is cretaceous : cenomanian (-99 MA), turonian (-93 MA) and coniacian (-89 MA), following the west to east dip. Day 1 : Antifer We met in Saint-Jouin de Bruneval, on the beach parking lot next to the oil terminal. We started the trip at 9 am, so we could hike quite far before the tide would stop us. Sky was shiny and quite fast the temperature started to rise. We mostly spent the morning looking for fossils in cenomanian boulders and chalcedonies among the peebles. We let the tide lock us and made a break for a picnic and a nap. Once the tide let us, we started again to look for fossils, under a scorching heat. At about 6 pm we made our way back to the cars. The beach which was empty in the morning was now overcrowded. We mostly found some irregular echinoids : crassiholaster and catopygus (some with a really nice preservation), some brachiopods, some bivalves (most fragile) (including nice rastellum) and 2 shark teeth. Here's a geoligical presentation of the area (in french unfortunately) http://craies.crihan.fr/?page_id=13478 Some of my finds on that day : heres a link a my flickr galery for the whole trip : https://www.flickr.com/photos/48637020@N06/albums/72157682540354264 Crassiholaster subglobosus Crassiholaster subglobosus Crassiholaster subglobosus with a smal bivalve print Catopygus colombarius more to come soon...

    Indet. Bivalve from Saint-Jouin de Bruneval, Normandy - Cretaceous - Cenomanian
  17. Hello everyone! Details of an outcrop of the Ifezouane Fm (Upper Cretaceous- Lower Cenomanian) in southern Morocco. This outcrop is very close to the border with Algeria. Sandstones and gravels have very well defined sedimentary structures, mainly cross stratification. Are a clear indicator of the current regime that possessed those ancient and enormous systems of braided rivers. In one of the photos you can also see one of the artificial tunnels excavated by local miners in search of large vertebrates, quite abundant! However, this type of sediment, deposited in a relatively high energy ...., accumulated the remains of many animals dragged by the current, also eroded and disarticulated. That is why it is very common to find isolated teeth and bones. But rarely articulated. The red color of a sediment that is seen in one of the photos is not Cretaceous! It is a recent breach deposited above the Cretaceous that lies at the foot of the slope. Greetings Juan
  18. Hello everyone! Today I'm fighting with this special piece !. I have been doing a lot of comparisons with other similar remains, but unfortunately there is very little published. It comes from the Cenomanian stage, of the Cretaceous region of KemKem (South of Morocco). Concretely of the red sandstones of the Aoufous Formation. Of the basal levels, really difficult to differentiate from the Ifezouane Formation (with much more sandy nature than the clays of the Aoufous Formation). I forgot the scale at pictures! Sorry! It measures long: 32mm = 1.25 Inch It looks a lot like pterosaur cervical vertebrae. It has some very special characteristics! I would like anyone who wishes to contribute with their opinion. Help is always welcome!
  19. Hi all! Here I share with you a couple of jewels that I discovered a few months ago working on the yellow sandstones of the basal levels of the Ifezouane Formation (Upper Cretaceous Cenomanian of South of Morocco). The truth is that it was a huge surprise !. These are two scapulae, right and left of the same individual. But individual of what? I was astonished to recognize the absolute rarity of its characteristics. It has a very developed proximal epiphysis and with great articulation surface. Distal area is beautifully ornate! The autapomorphies are really rare !. It had been a long time since I had encountered something similar! Now I have begun to look for bibliography on similar remains to begin the first comparisons, but it is being complicated task .... I also enclosed a photo of the level at which I dug it !, fine-grained sandstones lenticularly interleaved (like patches) within gray marls. Any opinions? Thanks!
  20. 2 Dino bones Kem kem

    Hey everyone .. during too busy X-mas days and NY plans ...fossils can't be too far away Would anyone have an ID of these two bones from the Tegana formation from morocco around Erfoud/Taouz, they would be Cenomanian in age... thanks in advance! d
  21. Hi guys, I have bought some undetermined dinosaur teeth from Morocco. I know determination is very difficult with maroc Theropod teeth, but I am curious what your opinions are. The teeth are found in the Tegana formation from the Kem Kem deposits. Note: I know that the fossil in the right top is a chew plate from a generic fish. Kind regards,
  22. ichthyosaur diversity

    https://peerj.com/articles/2604.pdf
  23. 1" x 3", top and side view. The back is unremarkable, but I can post more views if needed. Any help is much appreciated, as always.
  24. The rock it's imbedded in is approx. 1" x 2". Cretaceous, Eagle Ford. It would be plausible to find one in this area, I'm just not 100% convinced and thought you guys might have an opinion. Thanks for any help.
  25. Any idea if this is bone or shell? What might this be? Any help is very much appreciated. About 3/4" square. Thanks!
