  1. Hey all! Hopefully the pics are decent enough. I found this odd looking rock at my feet while out fishing in a creek in South Eastern British Columbia in the East Kootenays region. Any insight or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  2. I was recently given a tooth collection a relative of mine has built up over the years and somebody on reddit said that I should come here to verify my ceratosaurus tooth, as he said it is hard to identify one. If anybody could check this out, it would be appreciated.

  4. Russian Trilobite

    Just bought some fossils from someone who stopped collecting. There are some trilobites but one is without a label. Can anyone id this one? Thanks
  5. Scute or Spur ??

    New member. I am wondering what kind of fossil this is. The fossil is almost exactly 1 inch (2.54 cm) wide and the same long and one half inch high. It came from a beach near Jensen Beach.
  6. Hello everyone, Yesterday I was able to go to an exposure of the Kalkberg formation to do some fossil hunting. It was a great trip and I was able to bring back some neat fossils. Most I have been able to ID, although I will post them later for confirmation. But I cannot say the same thing for a few of them as I am really confused as to what they may be. Here is the first, after looking through the Linsley PDF the only thing I found that was somewhat similar is the trilobite Oinochoe pustulosus but I am not sure that this is it. As always, any help is appreciated. Thank you.
  7. Jurassic brachiopod ID

    Perhaps could somebody help to ID these bajocian brachiopods found last week in a Vendée quarry? Thanks the first on matrix,i think it could be Sphaeroidothyris with a not usual shape
  8. Ostracod?

    I recently collected at an exposure of the Rochester and McKenzie Formations in Maryland. The ostracod typical of these formations is Kloedinella. While I did find a lot of those ostracods, I also found these two fossils. My initial guess is that they are of a different ostracod, Leperditia. I tried to Google to identify if Leperditia can be found in these Formations but I did not have much luck answering that question. What do you all think? Any help is greatly appreciated.

  14. Please assist ID several finds

    Hi all, just got into fossils as a hobby, please see my introduction message i just posted. As a MD i have some knowledge on bone structure and shape, ofcourse not perfect with animals. I’ve several fossils found by my dad over the last 20y and myself last months. Literally in the backyard. (<< Town in Holland aka the Netherlands, Europe>>) Crucial in this is area is used for sand mining. This has resulted in a large lake, with depts up to 100meter (200+ft i believe. The water is fed by an old river, called ‘oude ijssel’. I will split this in batches, to keep things orderly. thank you so much A: Egg? Was one piece but dropped it. B: vertebrae of what? Looks like bone to me, the verbebrea part. With clear distinction to what i believe is soft tisseu with skin ( 1 side)

  18. Unknown Tooth

    Sorry for poor image quality, this photo was taken through a microscope in order to get a visible picture. its only 1.5mm/0.06in long. This stunning little tooth was found in Bristol near the seven bridge, a long with a cluster of other teeth & bone, in supposedly 210 miliion year old rock were an ocean used to be.

  23. Fossil skin?

    Hi. First time poster here. I found this in my rock beds surrounding our foundation. We did not order these rocks, so I'm not 100% certain where it might have come from. I'm in central Illinois. I'm really just interested in knowing what it is. Thanks for any help!
  24. ID needed

    Hello! Help please to idenify this fossils. Scale - mm. Western Ukraine, Miocene. Thanks in advance!
  25. I know bone fragment ID's are usually left at just that "bone fragments," but I've seen some pretty amazing ID's here lately and this is my favorite little puzzle. It was found on Edisto beach which harbors Pleistocene mammals mixed with Miocene and Holocene aquatic creatures. More info on the location (including a list of mammals) can be found here: https://markgelbart.wordpress.com/2010/05/25/the-edisto-beach-fossil-site/ It's completely hollow and has what appears to be healed over bite marks. Even if it can't be ID'd, if anyone can confirm or deny if the markings are really bite marks I'd be over the moon. Furthermore, the bottom is concave. I have a photo of the bottom too if you need it, but I ran out of room for this post
