  1. fossil quahog

    This amazing bivalve fossil was a gift. The giver had no info to offer. I am curious about what its origins might be - where/when; about how old it might have been when it died (it is 6 inches across and has several hundred growth ridges); and I would like to understand how fossilization can result in what appears to be a set of perfectly intact valves, complete with so much detail - in other words, the shells are much heavier than living shells would be, what has replaced the calcium bicarbonate to make the shells so much heavier?
  2. Dear TFF, Any ideas about more accurate bivalve ID? Thank you, Ricardo
  3. Montana, a shortish faunal review

    EASTON W.H.Easton: Carboniferous Faunas and Formation of Central Montana A study of the stratigraphic and ecologic associations and significance of fossils from the Big Snowy group of Mississippian and Pennsylvanian rocks Geological suvey Proferssional paper n.348/1962 Number of pages 157 PLATE two: stratidistribplate-2.pdf PLATE ONE(correlation/logs) plate-1.pdf to be used with some care with regard to (at least)the taxonomic aspects

    Could it possibly be an astartid? Oxfordian of southern Poland.
  7. I found eight of these huge Cucullaea gigantea fossils yesterday! Anyone fancy a trade? I'm interested in vertebrate material, or really anything that is capable of swimming, flying, or crawling. Matt

  9. Dear The Fossil Forum members, I have those Cnidaria (and a few other unidentified Cnidaria genera) from Camadas de Alcobaça Formation, Kimmeridgian, Portugal. I would be interested in Neogene Bivalvia or Gastropoda. If interested drop me a line please. Kind regards, Ricardo
  10. Cretaceous ID needed

    Two specimens from the Campanian of southern Poland.
  11. Great day in Paulding, Ohio

    First trip of the year today to the "Fossil Gardens" at Paulding, Ohio. This is quarry spoil of mid-Devonian age, Silica Formation. There was not a cloud in the sky, and temps were relatively warm at 43 deg. F. I was the only one there for most of the day, and it was extremely peaceful. What a great day. Here are pics of some of the finds. These are "farm fresh" and haven't even been washed yet, but I did take time to polish some horn corals and get some acetate peels (couldn't wait). A large Cystiphylloides rugose coral.
  12. bivalve in a flint

    This is a flint from Poland. Age: Malm/Cretaceous/Danian. What do you think? Reminds me of Neotrigonia or Pholadomya or a cardiid.
  13. Please help us identify the fossil in the picture. It was found near Fernie, British Columbia, Canada.
  14. Some of it is eroded so makes it a little tricky. I've come up with the following so am humbly requesting anyone who is able to verify or correct. Thanks. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Bivalvia Order: Veneroida Family: Mesodesmatidae Genus: Paphies
  15. Good morning, Would someone have this article to make avaliable? Taxonomie und palaobiogeographie der Bakevelliidae. (Muster, H., 1995. Beringeria 14, 3–161.)
  16. Bivalve ID help request

    Hello, Can someone help identify this Bivalve? It comes from the Gondwnaspis quarry, near mount Issimour, Morocco. I suppose then it is Devonian. This specimen has 3,4 cm. Thanks in advance, Miguel
  17. a pretty bivalvia

    ok location: Ayios athanasios hills, limassol, 8km from shore. i know that Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Bivalvia Order: Pterioida Family: Pectinidae ?? Genus: ?Species: ? But I am also wondering, if it's ok that I will be cleaning the top with a needle, and if I should remove also that bottom coquina matrix? (will i find a pearl hehehe) And can those arc encrusted epibiots also be removed without cracking the shell?
  18. water might be cold today

    Doush's weird and wonderful mollusca ,unknown installment number due to memory loss granicoriu-samaria.pdf
  19. Get a load of this Bivalve!!! I used to find a few of these back in the day. These come from a very private property that was located in the Falore formation in Northern california. I was lucky enough to be privy for collecting. No more of these will ever be collected. Sad. But what a super cool mussel shell!!! And quite HUGE!!! RB

  25. Help with these invert fossils!

    I found these fossils in Polvoeira beach, Portugal. I spent many time trying to identify them and research about the geological formations where they were found....However, I need that someone help me verify if those Id's are correct. So: 1-Found in Sinemurian layers, in Praia da Polvoeira (Polvoeira beach)- My guess it's :very weathered Pachymya sp.
