  1. Dear Fossilforum members, I was wondering if the echinoid on this piece of matrix is indeed a Gauthieria radiata and if so, does that appoint this fossil to the lower, middle or upper Turonian? The shark tooth is a Squalicorax falcatus and the piece was found in the Ardennes departement of France. I know the age of a few locations nearby, but the age of the location where this piece is from is nowhere to be found in literature. I also am not sure if I may say where it was (it took a lot of questioning to find out where it can from haha). Therefore I hope that the echinoid perh
  2. Hi there, I'm looking at possibly buying another saurpod egg. The seller identified it as a hypselosaurus priscus egg, Provence basin france. From the last post I did not on eggs I understand eggs are specifically attributed to hypselosaurus anymore? I'm looking for a museum quality piece as my other egg examples are just decent. Please give me your thoughts and let me know if you require more photos Thank you!

    France Fossil ID

    A guy that I work with in France brought some fossils to work one day that his grandfather had passed down. He was wondering what they are. I told him I could post them on here and try find out. He said they were probably all found in the area northwest of Bordeaux by his grandfather many years ago. Some where around Royan. #1 #2 #3 #4

    Marine reptile teeth from Nancy

    Hi everyone, I got offered this pair of marine reptile teeth as those of ichthyosaurs, but am having a hard time making my mind up about their identification. I'd therefore like to ask for your opinions. The teeth were found during works around Nancy back in 2004, and, based on other ichthyosaur finds from the region, likely dates the Toarcian stage of the Early Jurassic (though, from what I can tell, Oxfordian marine deposits are also accessible in the area). This makes them roughly the same age as material from the Posidonia Shale/Holzmaden and Whitby, bu
  6. I found this thing as a 10 year old in France. It is definitely one of my better findings on the flint coast there. I think it's an urchin but I don't have much knowledge about urchin and like fossils. Could anyone help me specifically what it is?
  7. Hello guys... the three dolls here come from a Miocene (Langhien) site in France. First identification was "Trivia Coccinella" (but I onestly haven't found it anywhere). Could they be Trivia Dimitiatoaffinis? I'm using this website for a help (http://www.nmr-pics.nl/).. it looks that Trivia (or Niveria) Dimitiatoaffinis could be the most plausible choice (considering period and location). I found an evenience also here (https://www.paleontica.org/id_system/fossil_id_search.php?zoek=47-0765): it looks quite similar... what do you think?:) thank you all G

    Steneosaurus revised

    A new fossil crocodylomorph-related paper is now available online: Johnson, M. M., Young, M. T., and Brusatte, S. L. (2020). Emptying the wastebasket: a historical and taxonomic revision of the Jurassic crocodylomorph Steneosaurus. Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society 189 (2): 428–448. https://doi.org/10.1093%2Fzoolinnean%2Fzlaa027 Michela Johnson and colleagues restrict Steneosaurus to the type species S. rostromajor, and make the teleosauroid snout MNHN 8900 the S. rostromajor lectotype (the skull fragment MNHN 8753 was later recognized as belonging to the metrio

    What is this?

    Hi, i have this worn rock that i found in Calvados, Cretaceous or jurassic sediments. I was thinking it was a weathered echinoid at first but it does not really look like it. Any idea?

  11. Hi everybody, with @caterpillarwe went fossil hunting in several sites those past weeks. At the end of March he showed me two quarries in the Maestritchian. So here we went, in the beautiful country of Comminges (photos from the net). A land occupied by during the Romans time. Here, the ruins of the therms of Lugdunum covenarum. Behind you can see the little village of Saint-Bertrand de Comminges houses a Cathedral that make the village looking even smallest. A country with typical traditions, dances and costumes Here is the
  12. For the last week before confinement contrainsts, I decide to go to the southwest coast of Atlantic Ocean to find fossils I begin to the coast near Biarritz and eocene level. But it's difficult to dig here because there is a lot of constructions I've just found a level with fossil wood. But I think it's pliocene level I go to the south by the beach. The sea is high and I prospect on isolated blocks. I see a rarety. A bit of Cidaris. The first I see in this eocene level I continue and arrive at a geological point. T

    Humerus or femur seareptile

    Hello everyone. I am sorting out some old finds in this lockdown period. This one was found in the Boulonnais area, North of France. Upper Jurassic, mainly marine sediments. I have always assumed this is a humerus or femur of a sea reptile with missing joints. Plio- or plesiosaurus. There is a big muscle attachment. Can anyone confirm or not? Regards, Niels
  14. I made today a new hunt in the Carboniferous of Northern France before the new lockdown . Nice Eusphenopteris Cordaites seeds Neuropteris Calamites stem A nice Pecopteris I Found also a Devonian Rock with a lot of Pelecypods But my target was Carboniferous plants ,a big Lepidodendron Nice Sigillaria NICE EUSPHENOPTERIS
  15. L.S., Hope someone here may have seen something similar before. The photographs below (apologies for the poor quality, made with phone) show about 18 mm-long structures, roughly oblong in outline and with a "dent" (in lieu of a better description). Their surface is quite shiny. The specimens come from the Pennsylvanian (probably Westphalian B or C) of Northern France. Anyone an idea what these might be? I have looked in the literature for similar seeds or cone bracts perhaps, but without success. Kind regards, Tim

  18. Hi everyone, I'm looking for an area close to Strasbourg in the Alsace, not more than about two hours' drive away, that offers both nice forest walks and easily accessible fossiling sites (or palaeontological museum) where a family with young children could go to find some fossils over the Easter holidays. Please feel free to PM me with details. Thanks in advance!
  19. Hi everyone, now that it is a prohibitive time for fossil hunting (at least where I am!) I though it was a good opportunity for a little throwback. This summer I travelled to southern France and I had the chance to visit museums, paleontological heritage sites and, of course, collect fossils. Towards the end of August I met with a friend and we headed to an area that was quite popular among professionals and amateur collectors alike, but we didn't know any exact location. We stopped at a place that looked promising and we asked the owner of the land permission to survey and,

    Carboniferous seed

    From my last hunt in the Westphalien of Northern France,the stem seems to grow from the seed(Trigonocarpus)but i think the seed probably fall on a Alethopteris stem,very strange An Idea?
  21. Hello, i have this little piece of fossil (2-3 cm) that i have no idea what it can be. Its from falaises des vaches noires in France which is Cretaceous/Jurassic area. There are mostly marine fossiles here. I was thinking fishbone fragment or plant? If anyone could help me i would really appreciate it.

    2nd mystery

    The 2nd mystery fossil is also from the southern part of France. It's a black fossil, slightly curved with 10 ammonite like "lobes". To me it always looked like a part of a heteromorph ammonite. It measures 4 x 2,5 cm.
  23. I went yesterday on my fav sites to find new good carboniferous fossils,the weather was great and i made few good finds At first ,i find two very nice and not easy to find Trigonocarpus(most of the times ,it's hard to find one!) I found also a nice Sphenopteris plate(nice colors) And a Neuropteris plate A Lonchopteris sample Probably a very unusual Crossotheca crépini zeiller plate But my best find was

    French Spinosaurids?

    I’m wondering what everyone’s thoughts are on Spinosaurids in France? Is it possible that they were present in France? I’ve seen the subject show up a few times here before and was wondering what everyone’s thoughts were. Especially since Camarillasaurus has been confirmed a Spinosaurid, it helps support it as Camarillasaurus is the second species of Spinosaurid from Spain meaning they were clearly prevalent there, but it’s from Northeast Spain, not to far from France.
