  11. Tooth needing identification

    Hi, Does anyone know what animal this tooth is from? Tooth is from China.
  12. A new ornithischian-related paper is available online: Ning Li, Hui Dai, Chao Tan, Xufeng Hu, Zhaoying Wei, Yu Lin, Guangbiao Wei, Deliang Li, Li Meng, Baoqiao Hao, Hailu You & Guangzhao Peng (2019) A neornithischian dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic Xintiangou Formation of Yunyang, Chongqing, China: the earliest record in Asia, Historical Biology, DOI: 10.1080/08912963.2019.1679129 Agilisaurus, Xiaosaurus, Gongbusaurus, and Hexinlusaurus were thought to be Middle Jurassic, but are now seen as Oxfordian-aged following the paper by Wang et al. (2018). Sanxiasaurus is therefore the oldest neornithischian from the Far East. I was curious to get a copy of this paper so I could examine more details about this new critter.

The other is a juvenile reptile prepared with acid and 16cm hand tools and in dorsal position. Which one do you think is better? position and preparation ... Thank you!!
  16. So this ammonite was listed for less than 4 dollars but I think it's too pretty. The seller didn't post any other photos unfortunately. They are supposedly from morocco but the seller is from china.
  17. Primitive mammal?

    This clutch is said to be found in Beipiu of Liaoning, China. It is said to be the primitive mammal of Triconodontidae. You can see the presence of individuals of different sizes. Any idea which species is that?
  18. Hello to all! I have recently won the rolling auction here on the forum, and one of the items included was a Cambrian panlongia from China. I understand that the two species of Panlongia can be distinguished by the presence of spines along the sides of the thorax but I really can't tell on this piece, so if there is any other way to know which it is I would love to hear it! At the same time the same piece of matrix features something else right next to it, I am not sure what it is, could it be a brachiopod? And when flipped over there is another fossil looking object below it, is this some kind of ichnofossil or something else? Thank you very much, Misha
  19. Tyrannosauripus tooth?

    This is a dinosaur tooth found at Ganzhou of China. Any idea if it is a tooth of Tyrannosauripus? The footprint of Tyrannosauripus has recently been found there.
  20. Plant fossil?

    Hi, this specimen is from Guizhou of China. It is Triassic. Any idea what kind of plant is that? There are not many plant fossils from Guizhou where you all know has a rich collection of of Keichousaurus hui and other Triassic marine reptile fossils instead.
  21. Freshwater plesiosaur material from the Jurassic of China

    Hey everyone Thought I'd share with you this new paper I found on ResearchGate; it basically reports the first discovery of remains of freshwater plesiosaurs from the middle Jurassic of Gansu province (in China). Gao, T., Li, D.-Q., Li, L.-F., and Yang, J.-T. (2019). The first record of freshwater plesiosaurian from the Middle Jurassic of Gansu, NW China, with its implications to the local palaeobiogeography. Journal of Palaeogeography 8:27. Abstract: Plesiosaurs are one of the common groups of aquatic reptiles in the Mesozoic, which mainly lived in marine environments. Freshwater plesiosaurs are rare in the world, especially from the Jurassic. The present paper reports the first freshwater plesiosaur, represented by four isolated teeth from the Middle Jurassic fluviolacustrine strata of Qingtujing area, Jinchang City, Gansu Province, Northwest China. These teeth are considered to come from one individual. The comparative analysis of the corresponding relationship between the body and tooth sizes of the known freshwater plesiosaur shows that Jinchang teeth represent a small-sized plesiosaurian. Based on the adaptive radiation of plesiosaurs and the palaeobiogeographical context, we propose a scenario of a river leading to the Meso-Tethys in the Late Middle Jurassic in Jinchang area, which may have provided a channel for the seasonal migration of plesiosaurs. Keywords: Freshwater plesiosaur, Middle Jurassic, Jinchang, Gansu Province, Palaeobiogeography. Here's the PDF of the article Gao et al2019Freshwater Chinese plesio.pdf Hope you all have a nice day! -Christian
  22. New pterosaur from China

  23. I will be receiving soon what looks to be a large youngshunensis trilobite, while I am aware of fakes from china I'm not sure if specimens of this trilobite like this just have real rough prep work done to them or if maybe there is some sort of carving involved. Any knowledgeable feedback to whether its a keeper or not will be greatly appreciated, always wanted to nab one of these.
