    Cretaceous Micro Brachiopod

    This one is bugging me!!!! I know this is a brachiopod. I found it at the Reedy Point spoils along the C and D Canal in Delaware. It is 1cm in diameter. I have found two of them in the sand but none of them in the books. I have looked in Weller 1907, Wade 1926, Stephenson 1923, Richards 1958 and 64, and Lauginger 1988. I asked the folks at the repository for the Monmouth Amateur Paleontological Society. No dice. Look familiar to anyone?

    Boletechinus Sea Urchin

    This specimen comes from the 1980 dredge spoils of the C and D Canal. The type specimen for this species comes from the Navesink Formation exposure of the same canal, not far away. Known by locals, it was not actually described until 1986. Although not the most common of species at this locality, and almost unknown outside of Delaware, these miniscule urchins were nonetheless plentiful at the Reedy Point spoils. Recent excavation for barrow removed most of the sand where my specimen was found.

    Sabre-Toothed Herring Tooth

    Vertebrate material of any kind is extremely rare at this locality. However, this is the most common vertebrate represented at Reedy Point. Found while sifting through micro matrix collected from an especially prolific, recently exposed spot that will soon be removed by bulldozers.
  4. I_gotta_rock

    Glycymeris Clam Internal Mold

    Glycymeris clams have ridges along the inside edge of the valves that extend past the cardinal area. Internal molds tend to include these teeth, making them very distinctive. As of the time this was posted, this was the only member of the genus listed in the Paleobio Database for the Cretaceous period and it is only listed as being found in NJ. However, Stuart Weller (1907) and Horace G Richards (1958) not only include them in the C and D Canal zone, but identify three different species for the region. This one is the most common and the only one THEY found outside of NJ.

    Gasatropod

    As battered as this is, it is an unusually well-preserved specimen for this locality. Although there are brachiopods and bivalves that preserved as calcium carbonate at this locatlity, most gastropods in the Cretaceous of Delaware are either steinkerns or are preserved as battered phosphate with phosphate in-fill. Gouging appears to have occurred after fossilization since the matrix does not completely fill the gouges. Most shell predation at Reedy Point came from clionia sponges and boring clams. This resembles neither. This was found in loose sand from dredge spoils.

    Iron Hill Museum Fossils

    I recently took a trip to the Iron Hill Museum in Newark, Delaware. (Which has amazing displays by the way. Its small, but fascinating.) There, I bought a small bag of about 10 fossils. I knew what most of them were, but there are a few I am unsure of what they actually are. I was wondering if anyone on the Forum could help me. All I know is that all of the Fossils were found in either Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. 1. This one I was told that this is some kind of bone fragment. 2. This is also another bone fragment. 3. I think this is a bone fragment.
  7. I took advantage of the day off yesterday for Veterans Day to attempt to beat the rain with a quick stop at the Reedy Point spoils piles (Late Cretaceous; Mt. Laurel Formation) from the C&D Canal in Delaware. Unfortunately neither of those things came true - it began to rain about halfway through my visit and I collected there much longer than I expected. This was my first ever visit to the spoils piles since I have found very similar fossils before in Big Brook, which is a much closer drive for me. I didn't quite know what to expect when I arrived. What I thought were going to be large pi

    Tiny Sea Urchin

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    So sweet! This is a very rare Cretaceous echinoid (sea urchin), Boletechinus. They are typically no more than a couple mm in diameter. This one is shown next to a pencil eraser. Most of the ones in the Smithsonian's collection come from sand and silt removed for the creation and maintenance of a canal, which exposed fossils well below the surface. This one comes from New Castle County, Delaware.

    Shell Made its Own Pedistal

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    A Gryphea vomer bivalve made itself at home atop the internal mold of a tiny Baculites ovatus cephalopod. The whole thing is about 3 cm tall. Found in the Cretaceous spoils sands of the C&D Canal, Delaware

    Fossils in pebble

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Fossil sea life embedded in beach pebble, possibly a cross-section of Belemnites americans on the right end, among other things. Found on the beach at Cape Henlopen, Delaware. Someone has suggested Paleozoic era based on the age of pebbles further north at Bowers Beach.

    Shark Tooth

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Odontaspis sp Cretaceous C and D Canal Delaware City, Delaware Mt Laurel Fm.
  14. After finding that dredging had occurred at the C&D Canal earlier this year, I decided to take two trips out to explore the area and collect some of my favorite fossils - Belemnitella americana! I had written the location off in my prior scouts for hunting spots as most resources stated that the site was picked clean after the prior dredging. Thankfully, the renewed piles of spoils were bountiful and I brought back a haul of about 300+ Belemnites including a monster 10cm one and many various bivalves such as oyster and scallops. Not too bad for a noob hunter!
  15. Found on the Delaware coast, in the surf. The segmented columns are irregular, waving independently as opposed to a regular pattern as in a hard coral. They seem to come out of a central stem like a crinoid, but there are so many tendrils, I am doubting that guess. My 7 yo son found it and is dying to learn more about it, so a genus would help a lot. Thanks! Paul

    Why I Love Blacklight!

    Whenever I bring home a new batch of fossils, I pull out my UV rock lamp. Why? Some fossils glow in the dark, but not in a uniform way. Variations in the mineral composition make for a variety of colors, even when the specimen seems fairly uniform in color in daylight. This can make small, hidden details really stand out. Case in point: This afternoon I was putting away some petrified wood I'd collected awhile back. I pulled out my black light to examine them because some of the wood from this site shows a rainbow of color under UV. This one particular piece was mostly orange under

    Fluorescent Silicified Cypress Wood

    From the album: Fluorescent Petrified Wood

    One of Delaware's many mysteries is the petrified wood found near Odessa and Smyrna. The general consensus is that is cypress wood of some kind and it was buried under Pleistocene sediments. However, the origin of the wood and the age have yet to be figured out. Some say Miocene. Others say as old as Cretaceous. There are no other co-occurring fossils in the deposit to give any clues. The photo on the right was taken using a 395 nm UV lamp.

    C & D canal

    I will be heading through the area this upcoming weekend and was wondering if there are any good spots to still check out there near the Reedy Point Bridge or anywhere along the canal up to the Route 13 bridge. Thanks!

    Shark Tooth Identification

    Hello! I recently found this well-worn shark’s tooth on a beach in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The serrated edges of the tooth are worn down but still visible, although it’s difficult to observe in the photos. I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts as to what species the tooth could possibly belong to? Thank you so much! Take care-
