  7. Paulding species list

    I recently was in Ohio for a short trip for business. Along the way I stopped at the Paulding fossil site. This had been on my fossil bucket list for a while. I was only there for about two hours. I was finding nice big brachs and horn corals, as well as some nice pieces of trilobites when I was getting ready to leave and I found a large, perfect complete enrolled Phacops. I might post some before and after pictures when I finish cleaning it up. Anyway my reason for this post is that I'm asking if anyone has a link to a website or knows of some other resource that shows the different taxa that can be found in this formation so that I don't have to take a bunch of pictures, post them, wait for people to respond... Funny thing is I think I left a small container of fossils I found behind at the site. But I still have about 5lbs of fossils that made it home, so I'm just writing it off as an offering to the fossil gods.
  8. ID please

    Could someone please ID this fossil? It was found at Lyme Regis.
  9. Need id on solnhofen fossil

    Found this small piece in Solnhofen. First thought it was just a fish bone but after prepping I don't know anymore. It has some structure on it that I have not seen before on fish bone although the material looks like fish bone. It is rather thin, just about 1 mm thick.
  10. Hey guys, Hello, I discovered this bone in a fossil box about a year ago and bought it for only $ 1.5 because it made me look special somehow. But I do not know to which animal he could belong. For me, however, he resembles a finger bone of a pterosaur. Can you help me maybe? The bone is hollow and 42mm (1,7") in size. Kind regards from Germany!

    Hi all, I will like to seek for advise regard the ID of this ammonites. Does anyone have any info regard the ammonite, the time line of ammonite before extinct?
  12. Am asking obo a friend of mine. I personally have no interest in this item for myself. But thought I would ask here anyway as I couldn't give him an answer. Is the tooth genuine? Is the ID correct? This is the only photo he has sent me.
  13. Fossil Fish ID

    I recently bought this fossilized fish online. I was wondering if anyone could identify the species and perhaps pinpoint the locality/formation. Thanks, Seann
  14. Fossils from Lyme Regis

    Could some please ID these fossils from the classic location, Lyme Regis? The bottom two pictures are from the same fossil and a UV light was used on one of the fossils to help it show up.
  15. what fossil is this?

    it looked to me like a leaf fossil but some people dont agree with this identification. What is your opinion ? I found it in Cyprus
  16. I've been trying my hand at prepping this hash plate that I found on the Whitewater River in Southeast Indiana. Gotta do something when the river is high and the weather sucks!! There is a lot of bits and pieces going on in this one and the color of the fossils are odd compared to the matrix they are in which is really soft. Thought I'd share, what caused this jumble of fossils, and what do you see?
  17. Double trouble

    Somebody brought me a bag of interesting fossils which turned out to be mostly rocks Nothing really interesting there except this two items which I am not sure what they are. I don't have any information about it I only know it was found here in Czech republic. Any ideas what they are?

  19. ID please?

    Could someone please ID this fossil from Charmouth, England? It looks like some sort of crustacean. Two of these were found in the same rock. The other one is being acid prepped.
  20. I've got no clue

    Good day everybody, I've had a pretty hard time figuring out what it is I am looking it so I thought I'd ask around here. The specimens was found in Agua de Medeiros, Portugal and both pieces are about 6 cm wide. The 2 fossils are not from the same creature/plant because I found them apart from eachother but they do seem to be from the same species. Both of them seem pretty weathered so its hard to get a good identifaction on them but I'm curious to see if any of you know anything about what it can be.
  21. ID required please

    I found these two embedded in the same bit of shale on the yorkshire coastline near Kettleness. Im a complete beginner so sorry if they are just rocks. they are both a similar size, 6cm by 4cm (LxW)
  22. Is this a vertebra?

    Id be very grateful for an ID, found loose on the coast of Yorkshire, evidence of a recent cliff fall. Area known for mesozoic finds, ammonites, ichthyosaur finds etc. length just over 6cm, circumference -widest bit- just over 16 cm. If it is bone, like a vertebra, how do i care for it? Thanks.
  23. How does this therapod claw look?

    I saw this therapod claw for sale from the Tegana formation, Morocco. Does any one know what it could be and if it could be a juvenile?
  24. Unknown Brachiopod

    Unknown brachiopod, looking for an ID. Any & all help is appreciated!
