  1. Mystery Tree, Bark and Leaves!

    Hi, I found these in the Carbonado Formation Washington State. 42 - 47 million years ago. Eocene under a coal seam. I found this bark of some mysterious looking tree. Around the same rock were tons of leaves, all similar to one species (except one leaf which I will also include). I am hoping people can identify the family of tree for me. I also am posting some strange "cattail" / "horsetail" like stem / leaf because this could possibly be a branch from this tree. disclaimer: I am still trying to figure out my phone. The last photo is more clear, larger and detailed. The only difference was, I held my phone sideways. Maybe this is what I will do in the future. First I will post the bark
  2. A super cool new addition to the Mace Brown Museum in Charleston South Carolina a Dorudon atrox skeleton. Looks like someone we know in the photo @Boesse. Anything you can add about were this specimen is from?
  3. Possible Eocene Horsetail?

    I found this in western Washington in the renton formation 38 million years ago. I don't think this is a horsetail because I don't see super defined nodes. But if anyone knows what this could be let me know.
  4. Eocene Tiny fern like plant ID

    This plant is very small and I have found about 6 specimen. However I can't identify it. It came from the Renton formation in western Washington around 38 million years ago.
  5. Tree Bark from Eocene ID

    I needed help identifying this tree bark. Its about 38 million years old from the Renton Formation in Western Washington State. I can see insect burrow marks but they could also be the details in the tree itself. Its about 12 inches long and 5 ish inches wide
  6. Eocoelopoma sp.

    From the album Isle of Sheppey Eocene

    This is a beautiful example of the Eocoelopoma sp. fish from the Isle of Sheppey in Kent, UK.
  7. Catfish fossil - Astephus antiquus.

    From the album Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Recent acquisition of mis-identified fossil fish. Listed as Knightia eocaena, I knew the head was the wrong shape. A closer look revealed pectoral spines, and a dorsal spine. I knew then that it was a juvenile catfish. This is most likely an Astephus antiquus. Green River Formation. Length 1- 3/4 inches.

  8. Archaeonycteris trigonodon Revilliod, 1917

    From the album Vertebrates

    Archaeonycteris trigonodon Revilliod, 1917 Middle Eocene Lutetian Messel near Darmstadt Hessia Germany As far as I know, four bat genera with a total of 8 species are known from Messel: Palaeochiropteryx tupaiodon and P. spiegeli, Archaeonycteris trigonodon and A. pollex, Trachypteron franzeni, Hassianycteris messelense, H. magna and Hassianycteris? revilliodi. The genus Palaeochiropteryx is the most common and smallest bat from Messel with a wingspan of around 26 to 29cm. Archaeonycteris is much rarer and somewhat larger - the wingspan is about 37cm. The largest bat in Messel is Hassianycteris magna with a wingspan of almost 50cm. Lit.: Revilliod, P. (1917): Fledermäuse aus der Braunkohle von Messel bei Darmstadt.

  9. Campanile giganteum

    Campanile giganteum of the middle Lutetian, from Fleury la Rivière - Paris Basin it measures 47cm
  10. Hi all. Only one of my first few posts on here as I'm primarily a collector. However, this would tie two of my hobbies together. Microscopy and fossils! I've gone through the pinned articles on prepping, cleaning, etc. The one thing I'm still not clear on is retrieval of the matrix as easy as digging a shovel full of dirt, running it through sieves, sorting, and hunting? I'm currently living in Biloxi, MS, so I assume I'll need to travel an hour or two to get out of the marine deposit area that is constantly in and out. Thanks so much! -C
  11. Hey guys I came across this fossil on the internet. I dont think this is necessarily fake, but what are the chances this fossil has had some restoration or frabrication done?
  12. Globidens alabamaensis?

    While collecting at a location in SE Virginia which produces a mixture of material from the Eocene Nanjemoy Formation and late Miocene/early Pliocene Yorktown Formation, I was shocked to find what I believe to be a cretaceous Globidens sp. anterior tooth fragment. My only explanation for this would be that it must have been redeposited into the Eocene beds and finally exposed with rest of the material. The texture is classic Globidens. The only other species with a slightly similar texture found within these formations (though still markedly different), would be Squalodon sp., however if the tooth were more complete it would clearly prove to be hollow with a conical interior consistent with squamates like mosasaurs. The fragment is approximately 7/8" x 1/2". This is the first bit of possibly cretaceous material I have found from these exposures, so it would be quite interesting if the general consensus is a Globidens sp. Your thoughts would be much appreciated! Thanks, Ash

  16. Possible cetacean?

    Hi folks. I found this in a river in south Georgia where there are miocene/eocene fossils. Cetaceans are found here fairly regularly. The flat portion is broken in a weird way, but I'm thinking maybe this is part of a scapula? Thanks very much for looking at it.

  20. Help With Green River Bird Leg

    I purchased a fossil collection several years ago that contained a beautifully preserved bird leg with some feathers preserved. It is was collected in the Green River Formation of Southwestern Wyoming. I know very little about fossil birds and am hoping someone on the Forum might be able to narrow the ID down to what family of bird it might be. Any Help will be greatly appreciated.
  21. Yankeetown, FL Echinoid Hunting!

    Hey guys! Here's something a little different from me... Echinoid Hunting! This was an extremely fun and productive fossil hunt, finding some of the oldest fossils Florida has to offer. In this video you even get a tour of my fossil-filled vehicle, which could have been a whole video in itself hahaha! You may also notice a quality change. We got some sweet new gear! Give the video a watch if you're interested and have some time!
