  1. is this a cephalopod fossil ?

    Hi this is matthew again today in the creek I found a strange looking fossil I think it might be a cephalopod but i'm not sure can anyone be able to tell me what it is ? here is a photo
  2. hi everyone this is matthew again today in the creek 2 sets of different kinds of brachiopod fossils here are 2 photos
  3. two sided rock full of brachiopods

    Hi everyone this is matthew again today in the creek I found a rock that I split apart and the rock was full of brachiopods here is a photo of the fossil
  4. what species of clam is this?

    I found this in Jefferson county, Indiana while walking on the hillside about 200 ft up. There are many creeks and brooks with limestone beds in the valleys around the area that are full of fossil clams like this. The fossils on the hillside are less eroded since they are not in water-filled creeks. Most of the fossils found on the hills are in big limestone plates, and are all smashed together and on top of one another, but sometimes I'll find some individual clams like this one and some coral too. This clam is 2.7 cm wide, 2.1 cm tall, and 1.7 cm thick but I usually find smaller ones and occasionally some larger ones, but this is one of the best preserved ones. They have a very distinct M or W shape on the front. Does anyone know what species this is and if its still around today?
  5. hi everyone this is matt again today I cracked open a rock and found a lot of brachiopod shells in it. it was loaded with shells here is a photo
  6. This "prehistoric clam" was given to my step-daughter with simple verbage that was inappropriate for her class to learn from! If anyone could please identify so that we can gather further research it would be most appreciated! From my own research I have found that: *Brachiopod- shelled fossil *Mercenaria- Clam Taxa-Species name? Lepidocyclus? It was found near Ceasers Creek in Southwestern Ohio. Map reference to Orgenia, Ohio The fellow that passed it along claimed that he could 'hear' a liquid like sound from inside of the shell if he shook it near his ear?! He also demonstrated a 'knocking' on the center top which also gave proof to his 'liquid-filled' claim. I have 'Google Lens' and another photo, of not the same thing but similar, brought me here! Please! Please Help! Thank you for your time in advance!!!
  7. Perfect ashtray

    Found this while picking the pile
  8. California bivalve ID

    Hi everyone, I have recently received this fossil as part of a trade with @Huntonia the bivalve comes from California, but other than that I have no more information. I am guessing it is from somewhere in the cenozoic which is an era that I am not highly familiar with. Any info would be great, Thank you.
  9. Hey all, Apologies for my hand in the photos, they're the only pics of the fossils I will be able to take for a while. Here are two fossils found at the Topanga Formation, or The Ampitheater, a roadside sandstone and siltstone bed in Topanga Canyon, Southern California housing middle Miocene fossils. The clam was my best find, but I'm not sure of its exact categorization. It measures about 4 inches long and 2.5 inches wide and thick. (10.16 cm x 6.35 cm x 6.35 cm) I had some thoughts based on this list that it may be Chionopsis temblorensis (Anderson, 1905), or Saxidomus nuttalli (Conrad, 1837). Also found were these segments which I inadvertently snapped apart, but which revealed some kind of crystallization of the interior. It would be really nice to know what kid of process made that, I tried to start the ID process myself and was unable to find a resolution. Your help is much appreciated, o wise ones. (;
  10. A few weeks ago Mrs R was asking me about TFF. General questions about members and their collections. I did not realise she was fishing for some Christmas gift ideas. I showered her a few of our members collections and she really liked Ralph’s thread “Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!” So yesterday I was very surprised to unwrapped a nice little collection of Mazon Creek fossils . I don’t think there is any rare specimens and unfortunately there was no IDs included. Mazon Creek material is quite rare to pick in the U.K. so she did brilliant and I was very spoiled. I will have to check Ralph’s thread for some IDs. Thanks @Nimravis for inspiring MrsR to purchasing me a wonderful gift . And if anyone has not seen Ralph’s thread it is really interesting a worth spending time looking though it. Cheers Bobby
