  1. Hi everyone a little help would be great with the ID of this trilobite it’s from morroco I bought a couple of them that were unprepared and incomplete to practice prep work on as I’ve only just started so any help would be great thanks.
  2. Hello all I found this here in San Antonio Texas (29.5089535, – 98.4185643) Near salado creek it’s measures out to 2” x 1 3/4” x 1 1/4” can’t figure out what it is Any help would be much appreciated thank you very kindly
  3. Hiya everyone thinking of buying this trilobite says it’s a Morrocops granulops and it’s uncommon - any help would be great
  4. Hello! This is a very worn, very eroded ornithischian vertebra from the Lance Formation of Wyoming. It was in three pieces that I recently glued back together, I found all the pieces wrapped in foil together in the box I brought back from the trip. It’s from my trip there this summer, though I don’t remember collecting this specific bone. My immediate thought based on size and shape is Thescelosaurus, though I have seen some small Hadrosaur verts that look kind of like this one. I just hope it isn’t too worn/eroded that no guesses at an ID can be made! Thanks!
  5. Fossil seeds, or roots?

    Hello, I picked up several strange "buds" in the desert this morning. I usually find small petrified wood chunks (possibly acacia) at this spot, but I have never seen this before. They really do look like seeds (like stretched walnuts). Found in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates). I think it is Miocene in age. (The first 3 look more like the familiar wood, except that they have weird small bumps on them.)
  6. Hiya everyone had a trip to strawberry wood in Scotland in the pentcaitland area never had long and only found on thing it looks like a cephalopod to me but I might be wrong a help with id would be great
  7. Unknown NJ Triassic Partial Something?

    This here is a very odd partial fossilized something from the Upper Triassic Lockatong Formation of New Jersey. Not to sure what to make of it, it has a dark core atop with whiteish suggestive shapes. Not sure if this is bone, coprolite, plant or what not. Interested in hearing other opinions.
  8. Pecopteris Species ID Help

    I am nearly finished with my review and reevaluation of all of my plant and fern findings from the Late Pennsylvanian Llewellyn Formation of Pennsylvania. I think that I have been fairly successful at identifying everything with their proper genus and species using the guide "Fossil Plants From the Anthracite Coal Fields of Eastern Pennsylvania." My hope is use this information with some nice photographs to put together an album under the Member Collection tab. However, one of the last things I need to review are my Pecopteris (or former Pecopteris) finds. I was wondering if any of the members with greater knowledge in paleobotany (@paleoflor @fiddlehead) might be able to verify my suspicions or offer an identification suggestion. It is possible that the ferns did not preserve enough to make a species identification feasible. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you! #1- Pecopteris lepidorachis??? - Pinnulets on lefthand side measure ~7mm; pinnulets on righthand side measure ~1cm #2- Pecopteris lepidorachis??? - Pinnulets measure ~6-8mm #3- Left: Pecopteris lepidorachis??? - Pinnulets measure ~7mm Right: Pecopteris miltoni??? - Pinnulets measure ~1.4cm #4- Pecopteris cistii??? - Pinnulets measure ~5mm #5- Pecopteris miltoni??? - Pinnulets measure ~8-9mm #6- Pecopteris miltoni??? - Pinnulets measure ~1cm #7- Acitheca polymorpha??? - Pinnulets measure ~9mm #8- Pecopteris arborescens??? - Pinnulets measure ~4mm #9- ??? - Pinnulets measure ~6mm #10- Pecopteris miltoni??? - Pinnulets measure ~1.5-2cm #11- Lobatopteris lamuriana??? - Pinnulets measure ~1.3cm #12- Lobatopteris lamuriana??? - Pinnulets measure ~1cm #13- Pecopteris miltoni??? - Pinnulets measure ~7mm
  9. Mississippian Coral ID Help

    I found this coral several months ago in the Late Mississippian Mauch Chunk Group of West Virginia. I admit that it is a worn example, but it is the only Carboniferous tabulate coral that I have found so far. My initial guess is Michelinia sp. Is there enough there to make an identification? Any help is greatly appreciated!

  11. Lake Michigan Fossil or Not

    Hello again! I received another trade today and was told this was a fossil found at Lake Michigan. I'm not entirely sure it's actually a fossil and I definitely don't know what it is if it does happen to be a fossil. I couldn't capture it with the camera but when I rotate it there are tiny glittery areas on some of the surface.

    Horse humerus?
  16. Clarification

    San Antonio, Tx I just pulled up this piece, which at first I thought maybe it was a mud crack. Its stinks like sea water, hardened on the outside and sounds like porcelain when you tap it. Then below it, the material is very sensitive. Which makes sense to me. Why would it sound like glass?
  17. Odd texturing

    San Antonio, Tx This one had an odd coloring and texture. Looks like shell and sediment.

  20. Simple marine fossil ID assistance please

    Hello! These aren't my pictures but I was given permission to post them to hopefully get an ID. I think #1 is crinoid stem, and #3 I was thinking some kind of brachiopod possibly? Thanks in advance!

  25. I found this at low tide on Manasota Key, Florida. We've collected shark teeth and other small fossils here for years, but this is a mystery for us! When we first picked it up at the high water line, it was black, but dried to a lighter gray over the course of a week. I asked locals and got guesses from a tortoise shell (it seems too thick?) to a megladon tooth (the v in the center is pointing the wrong direction, I think). The pictures are FRONT - Height & Width (with ruler), BACK view (no ruler), right edge showing holes and front , left side (with ruler) showing thickness. The gray color is accurate, the brown color is not- I used a flash on those photos to show the ruler.
