  1. Don’t make me regret this...

    My best guess is turtle shell. The top layer of this specimen seems to be keratin... but beyond that I’m clueless. All layers are very crumbly. Specimen has no redeeming aesthetic value, beyond being mysterious and... weird. Found in a spoil pile near Aurora, NC.
  2. Jurassic oddity

    Hi.... Hope everyone is ok and finding some decent fossils.... I'm really struggling identifying what this could be found in lower Jurassic shales from the sinemurian Somerset coast.... It's such a distinct shape I would of thought it might ring a bell to someone.... I'm thinking a carapace segment or bony fish armour plates perhaps... Any help appreciated.... Thanks....
  3. Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you about the crab carapace which I found in 2012. I found it at the Rocky Point Quarry, Rocky Point, North Carolina, USA. This little crab carapace captivated me and I am so thankful to Alex Osso for responding to a trip post I made in 2012. I thought I had a regular little carapace, but with his help and then Don Clements and among several others, the carapace made it's way to George Phillips. Then the research began. I want to thank everyone whom has been a part of this adventure, timeless research, keeping me informed, answering my questions and just taking to needed time to complete the project! Thank you to so many whom also include Barry W. M. van Bakel, Alex Osso, George Phillips, Don N. Clements, Torrey Nyborg, Francisco J. Vega, Trish Weaver, The North Carolina Fossil Club and the manager of the Rocky Point Martin Marietta Quarry, Doug Pope. The crab carapace has been named: Cenocorystes libbyae n. sp. I donated the crab carapace to the Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh, North Carolina. The carapace found by the Mark Mckoy Family is in the article too! Such an amazing find! WOW! Have a wonderful 2019 everyone and happy fossil hunting! I posted a link to the article below, hope it works. If not let me know and I may need a little help from a friend with it. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667118303495?dgcid=coauthor. The article is published by ELSEVIER, Cretaceous Research. The pic below is from the day I found it in 2012. All the best! Happy hunting in 2019! Libby

  6. Mazon Creek Eurypterid Carapace ???

    I have had these two pieces in my collection for a long time- I always have had a hard time tossing them when I come across them in their drawer because they remind me of a Eurypterid carapaces. What do you think? @RCFossils / @Rob Russell / @fossilized6s / @Peat Burns and any others that might have info.
  7. Unidentified Testudine Carapace

    Hi, I've recently been sorting through my freshwater turtle pieces from the Bouldnor Fm. and have come across a couple of fragments that don't resemble the normal finds of Emys and Trionyx. I remember collecting them at the time and thinking how weird they looked but I presumed the markings were the result of damage etc. so didn't give them much thought. Interestingly I've found a reference in a paper from 1890 on the fossil chelonians of the Isle Of Wight that states: "There is a third species of chelonian, the remains of which are comparatively rare, and the outer surface of whose carapace is furrowed in lines, much after the manner of the larger species of recent land tortoises." This accurately describes the pieces I have, but as far as I know no large tortoise (or any tortoise material) has been collected from the Bouldnor Fm. and with the paper being nearly 130 years old I took it with a pinch of salt. I was wondering if anyone would be able to confirm if these pieces are actually from a separate taxa of chelonian or whether the markings could've been caused during diagenesis etc. Thank you, Theo
  8. Eocarpilius carolinensis

    This nice small carapace is one of the more common crabs from the Castle Hayne. This one has much of the original shell intact making it very special.
