  1. Underwater finding

    Hi, i found this underwater in greece, any suggestion of what is it?
  2. Ammonites Epidaurus Greece

    Hello! I am doing some labelling and archiving so that I do not loose track of my fossils. Most of them, I have managed to narrow down to species, but for these little fellas. Some info: Triassic age Scale bar: 1cm 70% Sturia sp.or 30% Arcestes sp. Date of discovery: 2001 (My first found fossils) Location: 37°36'19"N 23°04'25"E The matrix is what locally call "Epidaurus marble". Same marble was used on the upper part of the Ancient theatre nearby, that's why it is full of cephalopods. I have read THIS and THIS post, plus a publication mentioned on the second post so I am between Sturia and Arcestes, mostly balanced towards Sturia. I compared against many photos, but I believe this made up my mind: Currently, this outcrop is not exposed. Used to be a small quarry either for marble or for fossil extraction. Has been covered with soil more than a decade and transformed into an olive oil plantation. Confirmed in person 12/2019. I know my chances are too thin since the samples are two small, but if someone is experienced to Hallstat phase, I would appreciate some advice. Wouldn't bother so much, but these are my firsts and hold deep sentimental value. Thanks in advance!
  3. ID please of marine fosill

    I would highly appreciate your opinion about this formation . Marine , Pliocene or Pleistocene age, Greece . Could be algae , bryozoa ?
  4. Ammonite ID

    Found a rather large and partially well preserved ammonite in ammonitico rosso dating early to middle Toarcian in the mountains of Epirus, Greece. Partially preserved because the other side was exposed and totally flattened. I am actually puzzled by the flattened state of the inner whorl as opposed to the outer whorl and center which appear intact. The shine is due to the paralloid-acetone mix i coated the specimen with, to prevent further deterioration. Would appreciate any suggestions to the species.
  5. Skull identification ?

    Does anyone knows from what animal is this ? from Greece. It is heavy
  6. Pliocene Greece sponges ?

    Among marine fossils of Pliocene , ostrea , cardium etc. Any possibility for sponges ?
  7. Any idea of the type of this marine invertebrate ? Most probably marine worms and Pleistocenic but any sugestion welcome.
  8. Theese are from Evia island Greece an Upper Miocene site with fossils. Any idea what can be the oblong ones ? The cones are freshwater gastropods that can be seen. there is also round and some arced ones. Some have hole in the centre some not . The size also varies a lot from 1 cm to 10 cm
  9. Cross section of Clypeaster

    Found what appears to be a cross-section of a Clypeaster fossil in Pliocene sea deposits, on the Greek island of Kythera. The length is 16 cm. Any help and suggestions on the species would be much appreciated!
  10. fossils from Paxos Greece

    Hi guys I looked up fossils in Paxos and only one result cane up , shell beds in Gaios, I didn’t hunt these I found the flint corals on the northern tip of the island tumbled by the sea and seemingly from a flint band about 1/4 up the cliff. The other were quite erratically found on the coast around the island , I also found a belemnite but due to a lack of hammer and chisel couldn’t remove it. Does anyone know anything about these fossils thanks, will
  11. Dinosaurs in Greece

    Because i live in Greece i wanted to know if any fossils of large extinct animals (like dinosaurs or big mammals) have been found in Greece because when i search it i get no valid results so could you help me?
  12. Found these imprints in the island of Rhodes (Greece). The age of the cediment according to geological maps of the area is upper Pliocene to lower Pleistocene. The units on the scale are cm. I wonder if my assumptions about pine cones are correct (even considered cycad cones) having read about pine cone specimens being found on the island. Would be really happy if someone could pinpoint the species from the shape of indentations - in the first image which is the most detailed there appears to be a small hole in the center of what I suppose are the cone scales. This can also be seen in the second image, though the structure is in worse shape probably due to being exposed for a long time.
  13. Belemnite or Ammonite?

    Need help identifying the following fragment. Took it out of the limestone in the locality Theokafta of the Argolis Peninsula, near the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus (Greece, eastern Peloponnesus). The limestone contains condensed ammonoid beds of the Hallstatt facies (Triassic: Anisian–Ladinian). Since I've never seen an ammonite with a cigar shaped ending and the belemnite fossils I've see so far are bullet shaped, I would really appreciate your opinion on the matter! The size is 5cm and diameter 1,5 to 2cm.
  14. Ammonites - Epidaurus

    Need help identifying the following ammonites. Found these fragments in limestone, in the locality Theokafta of the Argolis Peninsula, near the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus (Greece, eastern Peloponnesus). The limestone contains condensed ammonoid beds of the Hallstatt facies (Triassic: Anisian–Ladinian). The size of A is about 8 cm and B is about 6cm (which woyld probably make it about 10-12cm if complete). Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
  15. Triassic fossil

    Need help identifying the following fossil. Found this fragment in the limestone in the locality Theokafta of the Argolis Peninsula, near the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus (Greece, eastern Peloponnesus). The limestone contains condensed ammonoid beds of the Hallstatt facies (Triassic: Anisian–Ladinian). The size of the fragment is about 1,5 cm. Any suggestion would be much appreciated!
  16. Some kind of Echinoderm?

    Need help to identify the following fossil. It was found in Milos, preserved in volcanoclastic sediment and diatomite. Data from a study in the area suggest late pliocene to early pleistocene. Looks like an echinoderma, but unlike any I've ever seen, since it's test appears to have layers and no apparent mouth (unless it's on the bottom part). I have even considered it being a cystoid or some coral, but I haven't had any luck researching my theories. Units on the pic with the ruler are cm and size is about 4.5cm. Any suggestion would be much appreceated!
  17. Fossils?

    While I was searching on the beach for fossils I found these 2 weird looking objects. The small one almost looks like a piece of skin, with scales. And the other one looks maybe like a small sea urgin inside a stone. Anyone knows if they are fossils?
  18. Hello all, I am currently on Holiday in Greece and then on the islands Zakynthos and Kefalonia. I was wondering if anyone knows if there are things to find here. I searched on the internet but only found that there are some fossils on the top of the highest mountain in Kefalonia. But that is closed at this time in summer to prevent forest fires. Anyone else knows any locations?
  19. Fossil?

    So I’m so eager to find some kind of fossil that at this moment everything looks like a fossil to me. But today on the beach i found this weird formed object about 50 cm deep. Anyone has any idea if this is a stone or a fossil? It is also very light, not stone like at all... found this on Zakynthos, Greece on a beach close to Banana Beach about 30 mins away from the capital.
  20. What kind of bone?

  24. Fossils in Athens, Greece

    Hey everyone! I was wondering if anyone knows of any shops in Athens that sell fossils or if there are collecting sites that I’m able to visit (assuming it’s ok to take them back home). We’re spending our Christmas holiday in Athens and I would love a little fossil souvenir from there if possible. Thanks!
