  1. Eastonillaenus goonumblaensis

  2. Just got back from a trip to Forbes, NSW a couple of days ago. Found some great stuff! But after that we checked out a site mentioned very vaguely in an old paper and were pretty successful! The site which is located near Parkes, NSW has Late Ordovician trilobites and other fauna. From what I can gather most of the species from the site are undescribed(?). Anyway, here are a few of my finds, maybe @piranha could help out with some ID's. Oh and I haven't finished prepping these specimens, but I'll post them when I have, although it may be a while since my airscribe has decided to break Crinoid Undescribed calymenid Unidentified trilobite cephalon Another no ID trilobite cephalon. Halfway through prep... continued...
  3. Hello guys. I recently bought this potoroo jaw fragment. It came from naracoorte with permission from the owners at the time . I was just wondering what age it would most likely roughly be and what did potoroos look like at the time. I believe it would be from the pleistocene period, correct? Length of fossil is roughly 1.7cm
  4. Cotton Formation Fauna

    A few things from the Silurian (Llandovery) Cotton Formation near Forbes, NSW Australia. Most of these specimens are currently undescribed, but a paper will be released on them soon. One of my strophomenid brachiopods from the site will be in the paper, so I'll post it when it comes out, since they're a pain to photograph. The rare Aulacopleura pogsoni ....
  5. Was digging around in some boxes and found this specimen... it has a decent number of species on it! Although its nothing compared to another plate found at the site by some friends. We were going to split it but decided not to. Ended up having a couple hundred individual graptolites inside... but anyway! Sorry about the horrible pic as per usual. Early Ordovician (Bendigonian Stage) Bendigonian Formation, near Bendigo, VIC Australia.
  6. Aulacopleura pogsoni

    Paper describing A. pogsoni - https://www.researchgate.net/publication/236011643_Early_Silurian_Llandovery_trilobites_from_the_Cotton_Formation_near_Forbes_New_South_Wales_Australia
  7. L.S., As the title says, I am looking for literature on the cycads and bennettitaleans of Lune River, Tasmania. This Jurassic site is world-famous for its fern fossils, with numerous papers written on them, but it turns out to be quite difficult to find specific information on the other groups of plants that grew there. Hope you can help. Kind regards, Tim
  8. Shark tooth found this morning

    Hello, I was strolling my local beach this morning & was pleasantly surprised to see this little guy sitting at the shoreline. I live in Chelsea, Melbourne, Victoria. Was wondering what kind of shark it’s from, and roughly how old the fossil may be? Thank you in advance!
  9. Is this anything other than a rock?

    Gday all, was wondering if this was an egg or a rock? I found it on a beach in Australia near the border of south Australia and Victoria when I was a kid, I cut it in half and just forgot about it for around 20 years!
  10. Bendigo Graptolite Hunt

    G'day everyone! Today I just returned from a fossil trip to Bendigo with my dad. We collected at two localities: One in the nearby suburb of Bagshot and the other at Spring Gully Reservoir, next to Bendigo. Most of the Bendigo area is aged Ordovician and the only fossils to be found in this area are graptolites and uncommon phyllocarids . We arrived at the Bagshot site at 10:30 and spend 2 hours digging in a small outcrop on the side of a road. The site was dominated by Isograptus victoriae but Isograptus caduceus and Pseudisograptus gracilis could also be found. The graptolites from this locality are preserved as a white or reddish brown marking. We left after 2 hours to go to another locality we had been to before in Spring Gully Reservoir. The graptolites from this site were more common and more diverse. We did not spend as much time at this site but found more graptolites than at Bagshot. @Tidgy's Dad I may need help IDing some of the graptolites. Here are some photos of the trip: Hope you enjoy, Daniel SITE 1 Pesky meat ants (Iridomyrmex purpureus) All over the site and numbered in the thousands Beautiful sea of wattles Isograptus victoriae (Left) and Pseudisograptus gracilis? (Right) Isograptus sp SITE 2 Phyllograptus? ontop of Tetragraptus? Tetragraptus? Paratetragraptus approximatus? Phyllograptus sp Mash of graptolites Unknown
  11. Hello, I might be going on a week long trip to Lismore, NSW soon. Are there any fossil sites/places to look within an hour (any direction) from Lismore?
  12. Revisit To Fossil Beach

    Hello, Last weekend I went back to Fossil Beach with my dad. Fossil Beach is located in Mornington, Victoria, which is approx 70km south of Melbourne. The location is part of the Fyansford Formation which is middle Miocene (10-15 miilion years old). I hadn't been here for a couple of months and was actually planning to go to another location in Bendigo (central Victoria), but we slept in and went here as a "fall back" location Anyway, what a day! There had been a lot of quite heavy rain in the previous weeks and there were so many fossils that had washed out of the exposed clay and onto the beach ...we were just picking them up among the rocks. It was quite warm inland, but at the beach the ocean was covered in thick fog which dropped the temperature right down ...luckily no wind. There were a couple of other group there also. Regards, Daniel Micantapex rhomboidalis Conus sp Gastropods ?? Left: Gastropod ?? Middle: Cowries ....found 5 cowries in a cluster when i lifted a lump of clay. Right: Have never seen these before at Fossil Beach.....any suggestions?? Scaphopods Various bivalves. The far right, bottom row, was a fully intact one with both top and bottom halves joined!! Top Row: Biplex maccoyi Middle Row: ?? Bottom Row: Various corals Columbarium sp.
  13. Mulbring fossil bryozoan?

    Is this a stem shaped bryozoan?

  15. Need some help identifying

    Hello there, I recently found this whilst doing some excavations on the east coast of Australia, unfortunately I couldn’t retrieve the full fossil but am hoping that someone could help me identify what I found, thank you!
  16. Each organism is 5mm in diameter. What is this small cluster?
  17. Australian fossil crinoid?

    This specimen was found amongst shells and bryozoans. I am assuming crinoid but my knowledge on them isnt that good. What are the small little worm looking things next to the stem?
  18. Coral fossils, Wee Jasper NSW.

    Hi Everyone, Found some fossils of what appear to be coral but would just like to get some clarification. Both pieces where found on the Murrumbidgee river near Wee Jasper, NSW. The first specimen has a piece of what I'm assuming is Horn coral but there is another impression next to it that looks like it might be something as well. It is round, 30mm in diameter and textured like a sponge. The second, I'm not really sure, but it may be coral? There are two roughly textured patterns, round, one bigger than the other. First one (smaller) is 35mm radius and second is 65mm radius Any help would be appreciated. Thanks very much, Jed
  19. Is there anywhere to find shark teeth(or other fossils) on the east coast beaches of NSW, Australia?
  20. These are some fossil glossopteris leaves from different beaches around the Newcastle area. The rocks they are found in tend to be very hard to break, but yield lovely fossils. Good luck!
  21. Hello everyone! I have been sorting through my collection and have some bivalve fossils to trade. These 5 million year old oysters come from a roadcutting near Shell Hill, in South Australia. The locality is a large oyster bed with 99% of the fossils being from oysters. The locality is believed to be the only one of its kind above the surface in the Southern Hemisphere. There is more shells than what is seen in the photo. In return I would like some other bivalves or shells from your local area. (I am especially looking for shells from European or Asian countries US states other than Maryland and Florida but am happy to receive anything ) Countries I am especially interested in: Germany Spain Portugal Canada If you are interested, just chuck me a PM. Thanks, Daniel
  22. Shells from NSW

    These are some shells found from a town near Mulbring, NSW. If you go fossil hunting these are what to expect, along with literal bucket loads of bryozoans. Good luck Also if anyone can further identify, go ahead.
  23. This leaf was found in the same location as glossopteris leaves. Is this anything different?
  24. Does anyone know how/where to get permission into mulbring quarry, NSW and if possible any contact information?
  25. Fossil sponge garden?

    These inclusions are in Broome WA Australia sandstone possibly just higher than the famous dino-foot prints. The shape, relative thickness of wall and lumen, the layout and spacing on the platform, and some of the detail on them, all remind me of sponges. Can anyone confirm. If so there is about an acre of them! The longer ones all lie prone or are aligned in the same direction. A fossil sponge garden or cruel geological hoax?
