  1. For sale is a large bone (50cm or 20 inches) from the Ouled Abdoun Basin in Morocco (phosphate mines). It is listed as a Pterosaur wing bone and i think the id is correct, however i have seen bones from the Ouled Abdoun Basin that have appeared labelled as from the psuedotooth birds (generally Odontopteryx Gigas), and i am not sure how to tell the difference. The biggest problem is that the seller who purchased it from someone else, has the locality listed as the Kem Kem - which is certainly incorrect and because of the incorrect fossil site, i can't know for sure if the fossil came from the Maastrichtian layers of the Ouled Abdoun Basin and i believe the Pterosaurs described from these layers are known primarily from Couche 3. So i guess based on the pictures provided, does anyone familiar with fossils from the locality know if it likely to be Pterosaur. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello everyone so we have this Vertebra here from Taouz, Morocco, KemKem. It's just described as a Dinosaur Vertebrae, no further ID. Really not sure what to make of it. Is it a Franken-Vertebra? Just not good enough prepped? A big cluster of glue and different bone fragments? Just very bad weathered? It is at a reasonable price I'm willing to pay even if it turns out the be just a Franken-Vertebra while I work on it. Just to get some training on prepping. But I would love to hear if it is worth to spend any money on it. And while we're at it: And ID possible? Is it Dinosaur? Maybe Theropod? Or Croc? Or just not possible to ID? Unfortunately there are no other pictures available. Size is 91 mm x 76 mm (3.58 inches x 2.99 inches) Any help is welcome. Thank you!

  4. A new pterosaur-related paper is available online: David M. Martill; Roy Smith; David M. Unwin; Alexander Kao; James McPhee; Nizar Ibrahim (2020). A new tapejarid (Pterosauria, Azhdarchoidea) from the mid-Cretaceous Kem Kem beds of Takmout, southern Morocco. Cretaceous Research. in press: Article 104424. doi:10.1016/j.cretres.2020.104424. Afrotapejara represents the second non-Alanqa azhdarchoid pterosaur from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco, and niche partitioning could explain the presence of more than one azhdarchoid taxon from the Kem Kem Beds.
  5. Thysanopeltis ID

    I bought this large semi disarticulated thysanopeltis trilobite on a bit of a whim. It arrived today and overall I'm quite pleased. I'm wondering if anyone can help point me to a species or can comment on the level of restoration. I believe the majority of the spines on (its) right hand side of the pydium are carved and painted. There's probably more restoration elsewhere (I expected as much when I bought it) but it's hard to tell. Any other opinions would be appreciated. Unfortunately I don't have any locality information, and as it was labeled as a cornuproetus I doubt the seller knows too much about it either.
  6. Hi, Just wanted to ask if this listing is correct in regards to the identification. It is listed as the fossil head of the Anomalocaridid genus Aegirocassis. It is said to be from the Lower Fezouata Formation in Morocco dated about 480mya - so i believe the locality is correct for the species. Thanks in advance!
  7. Need help with ammonite ID

    I was in Moab, Utah last week and stopped in at the Moab Rock Shop. They had lots of fossils so I picked up this nice little ammonite about 17 mm diameter for a few dollars. It was labeled as an Orthosphinctes from the Jurassic of the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, but I'm not convinced. I can't find much online about Orthosphinctes but what I do find shows the whorl cross section as being much more oval in shape. I found the thread below from 2014 but it doesn't seem to have answered the poster's original question of Orthosphinctes vs. Perisphinctes. Can anyone help?
  8. Dinosaur claw: not sure what species

    11/16" Small Dinosaur Claw Fossil Kem Kem Morocco I bought online, but they (and me as now i have it!) aren't sure what species. [seller description removed].
  9. Good morning folks. I am asking for a verification/confirmation of this Stingray Mouth Plate. It was listed as Myliobatis stingray mouth plate from Morocco 50 MYO. Does this look correct?
  10. Peronidella

  11. Tremadictyon

  12. Hello. I saw this trilobite piece on display and was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it. I believe it is fake or heavily composited. Do the trilobites shown come from the same time period? Also, would trilobites and starfish be found together like this? The owner thinks the trilobites are real but have been composited together. Is there any way to verify this? Thanks for any help.
  13. Hello everyone! first time poster here. I wanted to gather some opinions on whether this is a genuine or carved brittle starfish. I found it for sale online and wanted to purchase it for my collector wife (as a surprise). However, I heard/read there are many fake fossils and I don’t have enough confidence to make a call on its authenticity. What do you all think? thanks a lot for the help and advice. -Robert
  14. I haven't been in a position to buy many fossils lately, but I did splash out on this small Halisaurus skull, which I felt was quite unusual. I'm not entirely sure how much of it is present. It looks like most of the front 2/3rds of the skull are mostly present. The visible jaw fragments on the right are confusing, since the teeth are pointing the wrong way. So presumably that got turned around somehow. It's a bit mixed up - also, it 'sinks' in the middle, as if it's been impacted against something (or bitten, but that might be a bit fanciful). There are probably some bones below the visible ones (perhaps a bit of the other jaw) but I'm not holding out hope for much. I like it, though. View from the snout. The visible jaw fragments on the left jaw (the mosasaur's left). With sausage fingers for scale.
  15. Wow three more Pterosaurs from the Kem Kem and all toothed one premaxilla is similar to the English ornithocheirid Ornithocheirus simus. Currently identified as Ornithocheirus cf simus. The other a premaxilla is referred to Coloborhynchus, bearing similarities to C. clavirostris from the Hastings Group of southern England, and C. fluviferox from the Kem Kem beds. Identified as Coloborhynchus sp. A. A mandibular symphysis closely resembles that of Anhanguera piscator from the Romualdo Member of the Santana Formation of Brazil. Identified as Anhanguera cf piscator In total, the Kem Kem pterosaur fauna includes at least nine species, of which three are ornithocheirids. Paywalled but check out the outline to see images of the jaw sections https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667119303258
  16. Here presents probably the first complete lobopodian fossil from Fezouata Formation, it is under describing at the moment. Outline looks very similar to Luolishania + Diania from Chengjiang Biota. Truly amazing creature.
  17. Thelxiope sp.

  18. A type of Paleoscolecid worm, not described yet. Related link: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/299613058_Palaeoscolecid_worms_from_the_Lower_Ordovician_Fezouata_Lagerstatte_Morocco_Palaeoecological_and_palaeogeographical_implications
  19. Thelxiope like creature from Fezouata Shale, described by Peter Van Roy 2013. It looks very similar to the Burgess one: Thelxiope palaeothalassia LINK: https://burgess-shale.rom.on.ca/en/fossil-gallery/view-species.php?id=123

  21. Leanchoilia sp.

    Here presents two Leanchoilia sp. from Morocco: Left one is dorsal view and the second one is later view. It shares almost the same features as the common type.
  22. Plesiosaur verts?

    Please offer any comments as to the ID of this piece. It was acquired years ago from Poland; but it was reportedly quarried at a Cretaceous site, Goulmima, Morocco. The matrix proved to be far too hard for the low powered tools I utilize for prep; so the piece languished in the garage for years. Finally it was shipped to Kris in Tx. Below is the account of his prep travail. As stated, it was labeled "Plesiosaurus, Cretaceous, Goulmima, Morocco." Any conformation or condemnation will be appreciated. I have real trouble visualizing the relationship between the appearance of the "front" and the "back" of the piece. To my eye it is almost as if the "back" represents the imprint of a different string of verts?!? Here is the display side that finally emerged. Here is the "back" side which was partially visible when the piece was received. Thanks for any observations.
  23. Teeth from the priabonian of dakhla morocco

    Hi guys I was in a rush but can take better pics at a later time, so far my tentative IDs are hemipristis Serra and isurus praecursor for right and left of 1st pic but no idea on the others (maybe galeocerdo In the middle though) those id’s were all of the top of my head so no real idea
