  1. Pretty shells

    I know brachipod and bivalves are common and many people often overlook them, but I figured i'd share some of mine i found this past month that I enjoy. A lot of them take on a white or orange color. 1 Has some bryozoans as well I believe.
  2. Pleuromya ? (Jurassic bivalve)

    Hi, I have found this piece in a well-known jurassic site where brachs abound (Late Pliensbachian/early Toarcian, Tenuicostatum biozone, Iberian-Pyrennes basin) My guess is genus Pleuromya. At species level, Pleuromya rotundata is mentioned in the zone, but I find nothing about it (I fear of an invalid or junior species). It looks like Pleuromya uniformis, of whitch @Ludwigia and @nala have posted some pictures.
  3. Last weekend we made a trip to my favorite Devonian hunting spot. As usual we found a few goniatites, but apart from this we found a lot of smaller fossils like brachiopods, crinoids and even a bivalve. and a few other nice surprises. The small bivalve: glyptohallicardia sp. 2 valves and pyritised, only a few mm wide with bot halves preserved. a very nice crinoid calyx a tiny brachiopod ( Lingula ) One of the best finds of the day was a fish tooth, I’m still unsure on the species, but I think something in the area of a Euchondrocephalid like Helodus. It the my oldest tooth in my collection Still, I did find an even better fossil , I’ll let you speculate on what this might be, but for now it is packed in the trunk of my car and I’m going to drop it off to the local institute Halfway on the way back home we spotted a construction site with a little bit of chalk coming out of the ground, we stopped for a prospection and came back with a few incomplete echinoids and 2 belemnites . So it is always worth to stop at an interesting looking spot
  4. Jurassic / Cretaceous Oregon fossil?

    Hey, I posted my trip to California from Washington yesterday. I have now looked through my rocks and noticed that one of these rocks are different from the rest. I took a picture of the Buchia Bivalve in the first image, to show that it has a different shape and markings than the bivalves I found there. If anyone can give me a genus that would be great. Is this another shell or something more? Thanks guys
  5. Exogyra vs Gryphaea

    I'm studying fossils and I'm having a difficult time understanding the visual(and structural) differences between Exogyra and Gryphaea. Any insights would be very much appreciated!
  6. Cretaceous bivalve?

    Hi all, I've been spending time walking the beach at Compton, Isle of Wight, UK. I came across this fossil when I was sat down after walking 2 miles and finding nothing! I've not cleaned it up yet. All of the beach is of the cretaceous era, and was found at the Western end of the beach. I've found various Aptian age finds nearby previously. I've looked online,but nothing I've seen has the very symmetrical shape and close together ridges that this has. I'd appreciate any help with this! Many thanks, Steve.
  7. Hi all, I recently made a trip out to Wilson Clay Pit in Brownwood, Texas with my local paleo society. I've found several recognizable things, and a few I need some help identifying. I apologize in advance to @erose who gave me an idea on one bivalve that I failed to write down, and thereafter promptly forgot! I think the tooth is Petalodus sp., just need confirmation. I'd love a genus for the clams, and I have no idea at all what the small plate-shaped fossil is. Thanks!

  14. Kansas Bivalve

    I recently found these 2 brachiopods in the Pennsylvanian of eastern Kansas, I don’t really know my brachiopods. So could someone tell me what kinds are these? Thanks!
  15. Monotis?

    Hi there. Found this rock a few months back, assuming for the moment that it's a monotis sp which are pretty common to Triassic marine sediments here in NZ. Any other opinions would be appreciated.
  16. Hi everyone, My last hunt of 2018 was incredible. And quite surprising too! For Xmas, we went to Middelburg in Zeeland to visit my mother's family, which is always a huge load of fun for me because I get to hang out with all my cousins, that I don't see very often. Anyways, one of the days, they all wanted to do a big walk on one of the beaches. At first they wanted to go to Dishoek, but I managed to convince them to go to the Banjaard instead. Once arrived, we split into 2 groups: one was my mother, my eldest cousin (18), my 2nd-youngest cousin (6), and I. All the rest went to the other group. The other group just walked, but our little group did something much more interesting... You guessed it: fossil hunting! As soon as we got onto the beach, we almost immediately found our first fish vertebra, but after that we seemed to have hit a small dry spell for nothing really worthy was being found. A few common fossil bivalves here and there, but nothing more. For my two cousins, it was their first time fossil hunting, and we had to give them a few examples to show them what to look for. I told them to focus on the fish vertebrae, because these were the easiest to recognize. The smaller one also did a lot of shell-hunting on her own, always picking up the most colorful ones and saying this one was Mama shell, this one Papa shell, this one Sister, etc until she made one giant family of orange shells Then after about an hour or two of hunting with rather little success, we finally hit these little shell banks on the beach. And there, BINGO! Gastropod after gastropod, we couldn't stop finding an incredible amount of them. On the Dutch shores, fossil (and modern too) gastropods are generally much less common than fossil bivalves. So the amount we found here was very surprising!

  18. Help ID Bilvalve (?) Fossil

    Hello, I'm new and know next to nothing about fossils. Found in the Texas Hill Country in the bed of the Frio River. The picture doesn't show, but the shell sparkles. The opposite side of the rock (not pictured) shows only rock, no shell. Thanks in advance for any info.
  19. fossil ID please.

    Hi everyone I have a shell fossil that I would like identified if possible. I believe this is some sort of bivalve but I cant figure out what species. When I Google it in get so many different kinds. This one is cool because it has a bit of blue on the shell. I found it in alberta while walking along the red deer river.

  22. Florida Fossil Bivalve Seashell, Need ID

    Hi everyone, I found this fossilized seashell in Tarpon, Florida on a fossilized shell trail. Original formation unknown. It looks almost complete and has great ornamentation and detail. It has 2 boreholes that penetrated just the surface of the shell. It is approximately 1 3/4" x 1 3/4". Can you ID it? Many thanks in advance.
  23. Identity of Fossils ?
