  1. oddball Pennsylvanian ?alga

    Anyone seen this species or similar? Found in Pennsylvanian spoil piles of central Illinois (near Peoria). Is it part of some kind of alga? Not my find and not my specimen, so these photos are basically what we have to go on. More broadly, can anyone here recommend a Treatise-style taxonomic book detailing known algal heads / macroalgae in the fossil record? Thanks.
  2. Weird Neogene/Pleistocene Tooth

    I found this the other day in a bag of Aurora micro matrix. It's only about 3 mm long. Could be Miocene, Pliocene or Pleistocene as all three run through the mine and the matrix is thoroughly sifted together during mining operations. There appears to be a root and possibly two tips broken off?
  3. Sometimes, it's not a rock !!!

    Whenever I am hunting , I tend to consider everything a fossil. So when you are with me, I am constantly coming over asking "Is this a rock?" or Do you think it is coprolite? Is that enamel? and I know a LOT about Florida fossil shapes. So right after, a companion said that this was a rock, I picked up something that might be a rock concretion. However, once again I am skeptical and will ask @Boesse to help me differentiate marine mammal from rock. So other TFF members can chime in with opinions. Rock or fossil? It is a littleover 2 inches in length
  4. While spending the holiday weekend at Lake Almanor, I decided to take an afternoon trip out to Taylorsville, California to look for some fossils. According to a geologic map I found, this site is located within the Jurassic hardgrave sandstone. I’m not very familiar with Jurassic marine invertebrates so I’m not able to identify any of my finds. But I figured it might be interesting to some to show some fossils from an out of the way site in Northern California.
  5. Mollusk ID Requested

    All, I found this fossil in a shale deposit of Pennsylvanian age in Northeastern Oklahoma. The shale is probably Chanute formation and contains other marine fossils. I would appreciate any help with ID. Best wishes.
  6. More Devonian marines.

    So I went on another scouting mission today. New spot is looking like it will be amazing when I spend a day there. Only spent about an hour looking for fossils and found some interesting stuff. Also my first trilobite Cephalon!!! So stoked!! It has a chip on the front and I think the other eye could be in the matrix. The matrix is a lot harder than what I have found fossils in before, also seems like the fossils are much better preserved.
  7. Hi all My kids and I found this tooth in one of the feeder creeks of the NSR in May. Someone said that it could be a worn Protosphyraena tooth. The leading edge is sharp; whereas, the trailing edge is round. It's also mostly compressed and broad-based. Any information or thoughts is much appreciated! Thanks!
  8. Fossil ID please

    Found in abandoned Longhorn limestone quarry in NE San Antonio, TX. For scale: my thumbnail is 18mm Please help identify. Many thanks!
  9. Marine fossil ID please

    Any ideas on these two fossils? Found at a local pit just outside of my town, marine deposits near Karoo basin.
  10. Folks, I found this fossil mollusk from a shale deposit in Northeastern Oklahoma. The shale is of Pennsylvanian age (probably Chanute formation), and contains other marine fossils. I would appreciate any help with ID. Best wishes.
  11. unknown shell

    I find the ribbing of this shell peculiar. Do you recognize this taxon? Oxfordian of Poland. Associated finds include: sponges, brachiopods & bivalves.
  12. Unknown Marine Fossil from China

    This is a piece of fossil from Yunnan, China. It is from Devonian. The pieces measures 12x10cm. Any idea what it is? Thanks.
  13. HI. Folks! I'm going nutz behind my mask--and I have a trip to Miss. and Ala. scheduled.... never been to either state, and wondered if anyone can suggest areas for a legal hunt or two while I'm there? I'd appreciate any tips, particularly with specific directions. Thanks! Barby
  14. Fish Spine or Jaw bone Maybe?

    I have found several of these fossils over the last few months and would love some help identifying them. Most are small, less than 1 inch long and difficult for me to photograph with any real detail. But the last one I found is much larger by comparison. It's just a fragment but it's about an inch and a half long and 1/2 inch wide. They all taper from one end to the other and they all have raised bumps down one edge and a deep groove along the other edge. The flat sides are textured. They were all found in a creek in Southwest Alabama, US alongside Eocene shark, ray and sawfish teeth. Suggestions so far include silurid spine, stingray barb, fish jawbone, and a piece of Noah's Ark. I have not been able to find matching examples of any of them. Any other ideas, or pictures to confirm one of the previous suggestions? I posted some videos I shot if that helps. Not sure if it's permissible to link to them here so apologies if not... Thanks!
  15. Possible fossilised nautilus

    Hi All! I found this possible nautilus fossil shell on the beach. It has nacre and also is quite fossilised on the ends. Any help with ID would be very appreciated. Thankyou!
  16. Marine reptile rib

    I more than likely buy this fossil anyway because of its very low price--unless somebody spots something wrong, like it being two seperate bones stuck together But I figured I'd see if anyone can narrow down more what it's from. It's labelled as unidentified marine reptile rib from the Taouz Morocco. The seller says possible plesiosaur, mosasaur or crocodile. It is 9cm long. Probably very difficult to identify closer, really. It's a long shot, but hey, anyone has a better idea and can narrow it down so I can label it more precisely than "marine reptile rib" that would be great. Thanks very much.
  17. Mcmaker's showcase

    Hello everyone. I wanted to share with you my fossils collection. I started fossils hunting in my area back in the june 2019 and that's what I collected and preparated since then. First of all, my favourite belemnites. I donated one of the largest rostrum (7 intact inches, on the second photo) to the Jurassic Museum in my country, feels good So, let's get started, that's one of twelve full shelves, this one is especially for belemnites
  18. New Pliocene bone

    Hi to everyone!, I found this bone in pliocene marine sediments in Spain, but I'm unable to identify it. Any guesses? Thanks!
  19. Folks, These photos are from a small section of shale I picked up in Northeastern Oklahoma. The shale contains marine fossils of Pennsylvanian age. I have questions about a couple of the labeled objects. I’m thinking the center one may be a brachiopod (or possibly a bryzoan--it's hard to tell because of the crinoid plate resting above it). The one on the right looks to me like a bryzoan. However, I’m a novice at identification so I’d appreciate any opinions. The putative bryzoan appears to have grown on the crinoid stem. Best wishes.
  20. I've always been fascinated by the Cretaceous sea and its myriad of terrifying carnivores, many that would've made Jaws look meek. After watching BBC's Sea Monsters, I made it my goal to compile a box of sea monster fossils. I started this journey 10 years ago, and finally completed the box recently. Allow me to present my Predators of the Cretaceous Sea collection, and take you on a journey to the most dangerous sea of all times. The box measures 20.25 inches long. Inside are 24 unique predator fossils. I will introduce them from left to right, top to bottom: Rhombodus binkhorsti Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Severn Formation Locality: Bowie, Maryland, USA Size: 1 meters Diet: Molluscs and crustaceans art by Nobu Tamura --------------- Polyptychodon interruptus Age: 105.3 - 94.3 mya | Cretaceous Formation: Stoilensky Quarry stratigraphic unit Locality: Stary-Oskol, Belgorod Oblast, Russia Size: Maybe 7 meters (This is a tooth taxon so size is not confirmed) Diet: Anything it could catch Note: If you consider Polytychodon a nomen dubium, then this is a Pliosauridae indet. art by Mark Witton ----------------- Prognathodon giganteus Age: 70.6 - 66 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Ouled Abdoun Basin Locality: Khouribga Phosphate Deposits, Morocco Size: 10-14 meters Diet: Everything art by SYSTEM(ZBrushCentral) --------------- Coloborhynchinae indet. Age: 99.7 - 94.3 mya | late Cretaceous Formation: Kem Kem Beds Locality: Southeast Morocco Size: 7 meters (high estimate) Diet: Fish and cephalopods
  21. This fossil was found on a Gold Coast beach in 2019. I'm thinking Pliocene as it's like most of my beach fossil finds. It's a curiosity as it has some crystals inside the carapace. Any thoughts on this? Thankyou!
  22. Hi All! Could you please help me to ID this specimen that was found 2019, Miami Beach, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia. I'm hoping it is turtle coprolite from the pliocene. I have other pieces if that would help. Thank in advance!
