  2. I went in my fav sites to look after new carboniferous plants
  3. Not a Clue.

    This specimen came to me via Sophie @fifbrindacier, @Coco and Santa. It is from the Eifelian, Middle Devonian of Col d'Aubisque, France and was labelled Calceola sandalina, which it clearly isn't, but may be a coral. Any ideas, anyone? It is sort of rectangular, widening upwards, but concave on each of the four sides. No signs of horizontal growth lines. Thank you, Adam. Reverse. 'Narrow' sides : Bottom - narrow end : Top - wide end :
  4. Hey folks... Here is a question that came up today at work. Did anyone find fossils in all the rock that was brought to the surface when the Chunnel was being built? Did any of you folks in southern UK and northern France get to have a look at these rocks? Thanks
  5. A new fieldtrip to the coast of northern France this Saturday. In the morning we prospected the beaches with Jurassic deposits whit a few friends. Not an easy place to look for fossils, but Natalie fond a large Ichthyosaur vert and I found a neat little echinoid in the shingle. At noon our local friends hat to go, so Natalie and I made a stop a little more up North on our way home. We went to the beaches at the chalky Cretaceous cliffs. Here we had a lot of luck, the sea had cleaned up the cliff falls that had occurred a few weeks back. In a short amount of time we managed to find around 6 complete Acanthoceras ammonites scattered on the beach. Time to hit the prep table again The jurassic ( Titonian ) site: The Cretaceous ( Cenomanian )site Prepping pictures will follow
  6. French trilobites ID needed!

    Hello and Happy New Year to all! Hope you all had a great time I saw these two interesting trilobite positive and negative from the Montagne Noire in France. I would be interesting in knowing their species and if they are rare/hold any value if possible (without giving numbers of course) Unfortunately 2 out of the 3 pictures are very poor quality. Hope you can still tell. Number one could be some kind of Psychopyge sp. ??? Curious to know your thoughts. Kind regards.
  7. Acanthoceras prepparation

    On our Christmas fossil hunting trip Natalie found a nice Acanthoceras rothamagense in a loose boulder on the beach, All we had to do is reduce the size of the boulder to make it fit in the backpack. A few days ago I removed a large chunk of exces matrix with a powertool. Today I took the time to prepp the whole ammonite. this is the result after 4 to 5 hours of prepwork: The final result: Acanthoceras rothamagense Upper Cenomanian Cap-Blanc-Nez ( France ) 20cm in diameter

  10. a christmas fossil trip

    Like last year Natalie and I spent 4 days on a fossil hunting trip on a few different locations on the northern coast of France. Each day a different location. The stormy weather conditions made the beaches realy favorable foor fossil hunting as lots of specimens could be found loose on the beaches. We started Saturday with Turonian sea urchins, sunday Kimmeridge clay and limestone, monday turonian ammonites and the last day mostly cenomanian fossils. Highlights of the trip were a few large ammonites ( Lewisceras and Acanthoceras ) and a rare tooth of a marine reptile from the Kimmeridge deposits.

  13. Dino eggs prospecting

    Last Week-end I went in the area of Aix en Provence in South of France. i wanted to find some clues of dinosaur eggs for further digging next spring. I wealked in the red badlands of the region, with nice sun and landscapes. I finally found eggshells fragments, coming from destroyed eggs because of the rain. I also spotted a few eggs in section. Enjoy the pictures ! CAN YOU SPOT THE SHELLS ? HALF EGG ABOUT 20 CM IN THE STONE
  14. Geology club excursion to the coast of France This weekend we had a 2 day excursion to the northern coast of France. First up were the Cenomanian cliffs in that area, although the use of tools was limited we were allowed to collect in the boulders laying on the beach. The stormy weather had done a great job at providing fresh material, and lots of fossils could be picked up on the beach. The 2nd day we went a few kilometers to the south were late Jurassic cliffs are exposed. There were no restrictions on collecting here, although we stayed away from the cliffs for obvious safety reasons. The fossils were sparser than on the previous location, but with a little effort we found bivalves and gastropod steinkerns , ammonites and evan a few very nice echinoids. pictures from saturday: pictures from sunday:
  15. Airabrading at last....

    So for several years i knew that getting better prepresults would have to include a air abrader. With my Junair silent compressor this was problematic as there is not enough airflow, so these last years i was limited to pen work.... A few month’s ago my beloved Junair got a leak in the tank, repair was not very cheap, so i upgraded to a much more powerful compressor, not silent but workable....I also bought a very old Renfert abrader, very cheap, which after replacing the filter set started to work very fine.... So here’s some prep results with this setup. At last i was able to prep a few of my finds from my 2012 trip to the Lafarge quarry at Belmont, France. Allthough i ‘m really happy with the results so far, it’s a very slow process, even with the replaced filterset on the Renfert. Some matrix is just too problematic for this Renfert machine. I’m not sure why, maybe it’s not effective enough, or maybe it’s because the unit is limited to 6 bar, so i cannot push it more..... At the moment i’m waiting my custom build Eckhard Petersen abrader, this unit should cover it. So i hope for more and better pix in the future....
  16. It was a Sunny day and we went to the Portlandian beach of Wimereux,northern France Many pelecypods internal mold
  17. Recognize this bone structure?

    Does anyone recognize these grooves on the outside of this bone fragment? This was found in upper Jurassic sediments in North of France, mainly marine but terrestrial is possible. I have never seen this structure before on the outside of a bone.
  18. I went today for a new carboniferous hunt,a lot of water but no rain,very nice day! A carboniferous heart?
  19. Miocene shells

    Hi, I have been through my shells collection from the Miocene of South East France: And a few of the shells are still not identified @FranzBernhard @Coco A ? B ? C the left one maybe MOERELLA and right LINGA ? D ? E: CLAVATULA ? F ? G?
  20. 2 ammonites

    Hi all, i need help to identify correctly those two ammonites. The first, i think an Hoplites and even maybe an Hoplites (Hoplites) benettionis var. devisensis ? I have no indication on its location and age. The second one is from the Jurassic of Jard sur Mer in the Vendée department. I think it could be an Oxycerites orbis, or, at least, an Oppelidae.
  21. French Meg tooth

    Hi, I just brought this shark tooth. It was labelled as shown in the first picture, can anyone see any restoration or any other problems.
  22. Hi guys what do you think of this dinosaur egg? It misses quite a lot off egg shell right? It comes from an old collection and is found in the Aix-en-Provence, Bouches-du-Rhône, Provence in France. Often sold as Hypselosaurus egg. Approximately 25 cm. I know these eggs are quite rare but I am doubting.
  23. Theropod claw from France?

    Hi is this a theropod claw from France? it is 6 mm long.

  25. Hi all, I have been more or less away from the forum for the last few monthes. Life has been hectic. And if i still managed to go on the field quite a lot, i did have any time left for the rest (writing, taking photos, processing stuff, labelling etc). Nevertheless, i finally manage a quick photo session. As an appetizer, what is prolly the best piece for quite some time. A double trilo, Eodalmanitina sp, one preserved with his caudal spine. So 2 rocks as a starter . I had to sacrifice part of the 2 counterprints, to unveil the opposite trilo... Regards.
