  1. I do not have a lot of experience buying insect fossils and was wondering if this ancestor to the modern dragonfly fossil is real?
  2. This morning a paper was published about a find I made a couple of years ago. Beckemeyer-Engel-2018-Archaemegatptilus (1).pdf
  3. Dragonfly non det and Lycoptera davidii

    From the album Invertebrates

    Dragonfly non det. and Lycoptera davidii Early Cretaceous Liaoning PRC
  4. Hi, please, could you help us with the identification of this fossil? It belongs to the south of Spain. Thanks in advance
  5. Dragonfly wing?

    Hi, this fossil was found in the Fur Formation of Denmark, which 55 million years ago was at the bottom of an ocean. Someone claimed that this fossil was part of a dragonfly wing, but what do you think?
  6. Dragonfly Fossil from Liaoning

    Hi, this is a specimen from Daohugou, Liaoning. Is it a Sinaeschnidia cancellosa?
  7. From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Ephemeropsis trisetalis Dragonfly Larvae fossil Liaoning Province of China Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous 113-145 million years These fossil plates display classic early dragonfly Ephemeropsis trisetalis features in great detail for a fossil of this age. IInsects were one of the first groups to recover from the great Permian mass extinction and show more diversity in the Triassic. One of their early advantages was that some of them had mastered flight and were able to escape from predators, something no other group succeeded in doing for millions of years. From then until today, insects have been increasing in variety and have remained largely unaffected by other global extinctions. The appearance of flowering plants in Cretaceous further stimulated insect evolution as the plants used insects for pollination. The name Palaeoptera has been traditionally applied to those ancestral groups of winged insects (most of them extinct) that lacked the ability to fold the wings back over the abdomen as characterizes the Neoptera. The Diaphanopterodea, which are palaeopteran insects, had independently and uniquely evolved a different wing-folding mechanism. Both mayflies and dragonflies lack any of the smell centers in their brain found in Neoptera. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Palaeoptera Class: Insecta Order: Ephemeroptera Genus: Ephemeropsis Species: trisetalis
  8. Hey all, I came across this thing and wanted Your opinions on whether it is a fake or real fossil. Please let Me know what You think. Thanks, Ynot
  9. Fossil insect from China

    This piece was exposed an a mineral, fossil and gem fair. I believe it's a dragonfly nymph (=inmature). It's very big in comparison with modern dragonfly nymphs: about 8 cm lenght. Piece comes from Liaoning (China) and I think it's middle Jurassic. Any help in ID? Thanks!
  10. First record of the Lower Jurassic dragonfly Protomyrmeleon brunonis Geinitz, 1887 from Charmouth, UK donated to "Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde Stuttgart". Three wings super-imposed, without body. So far only known from Dobbertin in Mecklenburg, Germany. F. E. Geinitz (1887): Beitrag zur Geologie Mecklenburgs. Archiv des Vereins der Freunde der Naturgeschichte in Mecklenburg 41:143-216
  11. Hi all. I'm interested in getting a Solnhofen dragonfly. This one caught my eye due to its unique preservation. I'm concerned about its authenticity though. I'm okay-ish with highlighting, but not if the wings are drawn on. What are your thoughts on this dragonfly here?
  12. Came across these ridiculous fakes this morning. Disturbing how many people are bidding on them. "Mammal Fossil" "Chimera fish fossil" "Butterfly fossil" "Dragonfly Fossil" "Scorpion fossil" on the same slab as "dragonfly" and "fish fossil" on the backside of same slab... Continued...
  13. Hi all, I am interested in acquiring this crinoid from an old shop in Chinatown. The store owner told me he brought it out of China decades ago but does not know the ID. My own amateur guess is Traumatocrinus but can anyone else give some insight on this? Below are a few pictures of the specimen, which measures about 1 ft(12") in length. I will detail the Chinese dragonfly in the next post. Edit: forgot about the measurements!
  14. Ok, hoping I don't keep wasting your time. I'm thinking dragonfly. Maybe worm? Plant? Found in farmer field. Bethlehem PA.
