  1. Hello. I have still been going through boxes of mostly cave mineral from a large estate sale purchase, mostly consisting of cave minerals. The tags that remain are not attached to the pieces and usually scattered among many boxes. This amazing plate I found recently and believe I finally found the label. I just need justification. I haven't found any other plates like this one. It's stunning in person!
  2. Encope tamiamiensis

    The sample image here was collected directly from a Drag Line operator's windrow in a lime rock mine in Southern FL just outside of Naples around the Sable Palm area of the Big Cypress swamp of the Everglades in 1997. The specimen has been completely removed from the limestone petrol (lime rock low density ls) matrix. What is interesting is the general shape of the specimen and how this 5 million year old specimen differs from the present day specimen at the same general location. I am guessing the seas of which the archaic specimens existed in were more challenging to exist in general as the specimen appears more elongate than present day specimen possibly for navigational purpose in higher energy seas than say today. Consequently the respiratory flower on top seems to be larger than today's comparable specimen as a direct consequence in the different morphology.
  3. Hi, here is a bunch of tiny beauties from Texas (Lake Bridgeport). If somebody can help ID the gastropods at 1:40 and a crinoid at 4:20, it would be much appreciated.
  4. Hey everyone - It's Christian. For the past few months, I was inactive on TFF as I had a lot of schoolwork.. But now, I've got a lot more time on my hands - which means that I can get back to all things fossil related This of course includes making preparations for my 3rd Møns Klint Fossil Excavation (MKFE - the fieldwork aspect of my Møns Klint Fossil Research Program). I'll be going for 2 weeks, in mid-August - I'm really excited! As I said in a post from a few months ago, the collection policy of this MKFE is essentially the same as last time's (cephalopod, crustacean, echinoderm and vertebrate material). This time, though, there'll be a bigger focus on articulated and/or associated material - eroded sea urchin spines and belemnite fragments are getting too numerous... On the first days of the field trip, I'll have to do quite a bit of prospecting for new sites to work at, because there's a chance that the landslide spoil heap from last year has most likely been washed away by the waves. I'm already having some ideas of particular projects for this field trip, which include a comprehensive collection of washout microfossils - to determine relative abundances of various faunal groups. Another project is the in-depth analysis of fossil material from different layers of chalk - which I hope will yield some zone fossils. Of course, I'm still hoping to find a lil' mosasaur tooth I'll also use this field trip as an opportunity to donate to the GeoCenter Møns Klint some of the fossils I found during the 2nd MKFE. I'll keep you guys posted! Stay tuned I'm so excited to getting back there! -Christian

    Found this in Southeast Indiana, was wondering if it's Crinoid arms? It's a small rock but alot going on, just curious. Thank you!

  9. Hey everyone, I'm back from my second Møns Klint Fossil Excavation - it was absolutely fantastic! For the majority of 2 weeks, I was down at the chalk cliffs of Møn; and recovered quite a sizable quantity of (mostly echinoderm) good-quality fossil material. All of it is still safely stowed away in ice cream boxes and kitchen paper "field jackets", but I can not wait to getting down to preparing all those fossils. Unfortunately, I did not manage to rediscover the "Echinoderm Quarry", but I did on the other hand have the chance to work on some new, very fossiliferous sites. Along with extensive fieldwork, I also got the privilege of analysing the MK Thoracosaurine jaw fossil, and meeting the Director and the Fossil Guide of the GeoCenter Møns Klint. I'll give detailed and illustrated accounts of all that happened* during this successful field session in the next few days... Stay tuned *Except, of course, for my studies of the MK Thoracosaurine - that'll have to wait until after the paper has been published (IF it does end up being published)
  10. Camptostroma in the Mail

    So excited when this echinoderm I bought online arrived today! It is Camptostroma roddyi specimen from a private property at Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, from the Kinzer Formation. I dont know much about this enigmatic Cambrian echinoderm nor the formation it came from but I cant wait to add this to my small collection of echinoderms.
  11. Florida part 3

    Many, many times people new (and old) to fossil hunting post on TFF asking for advise about where to collect. Constantly, advise to join a local fossil club is given to them. This is always a great recommendation. But what I would like to point out is to forget the word "local". My experience is that every location that I have ever vacationed at since the fossil hunting bug hit me has had a fossil club. And every time I have contacted a non local club, they are more than happy to include you in their activities/ hunts. So, yes, by all means, JOIN your local club, but also take full advantage of other clubs when venturing outside of your area. I took advantage of the Tampa Bay Fossil Club's hospitality while in Florida by attending a field trip with them. They were very gracious hosts and were willing to educate me, being a novice to their type of collecting. We were to enter the Cemex Quarry in Center Hill at 8 am. Not sure where the heck Center Hill was, I left plenty early and was the first to arrive and was greeted by this site. A nice way to start the day. Cemex was nice enough to deposit plenty of new rock for us to pick through. I believe this is Ocala limestone. Going was initially tough for most. Unfortunately, this new material was very powdery making it extremely hard to see the echinoderms lurking within. Once a rain washes the fines away, someone will find its treasures, but not for most of us. I did discover that if I split the harder "concretions" in this new material, they contained wonderful plates of scallops, but no echinoderms. My wife adores scallop collecting at the beach, so I brought her some ancient ones to add to her finds.

  17. Are These Crinoid Plates?

    Please excuse my lack of knowledge yet on many types of fossils, but are these Crinoid plates? These were found (in abundance) in Post oak creek and Choctaw creek in Grayson Co. Texas. I think it is from the Woodbine group, but please correct me on which group or formation of a group if I'm wrong. I'm still wet behind the ears on formations. I really need to get that geography book..
