  1. Some examples of hyperdeveloped corallites in genera belonging to the Stylophoridae family. Certain specialists have come to describe them as aberrant or anomalous. In my modest opinion overdeveloped is a more appropriate qualifier. I hope you find them interesting or at least curious. Cheers.

  2. Castle Hayne fm Mystery Fossil

    I found this mystery fossil at the Castle Hayne Quarry near Wilmington, North Carolina over 15 years ago. It was in limestone of the Eocene age Castle Hayne Fm. It consists of parallel shallow indentations that have grayish looking coatings in the bottom of them. I have had suggestions that it was a plant impression, soft coral, and bryozoan. I don't know what fossil forum to have it identified when nobody is sure if it's plant or animal. Any suggestions? The long direction of the specimen is about 3 inches by two or two and a half inches. 7.5 cm by 6 cm
  3. Is this a fossil? First post :)

    I’m lucky enough to live within walking distance to lots of fossils at Maslin Beach South Australia. The sites in this area are in coastal cliffs of limestone from the Eocene to Oligocene. I’ve found quite a lot of actual marine fossils here but this one I’m not sure about so it would be fun to get an answer from experts! I found this specimen in an exposed cliff face. It looks a lot like bone to me but I guess it could be a really interesting rock Thanks! Aarosaur

    From the album Fossil Crabs

    A very nice Pulalius vulgaris from the Eocene Lincoln Creek Formation in Washington
  5. True or fake? And what species is it? I have this rare fish from the US Eocene. It has color and a lacquer applied. The rock is authentic and I have passed a flame over the fish and it does not melt, it is not resin. But I still have doubts.
  6. Fossil tooth - Green River Formation, WY

    I found this tooth while prepping some of my fossils from the American Fossil quarry near Kemmerer, WY. This is actually in the same plate as a partial stingray that I've been trying to piece back together! I didn't even know the tooth was there until today, weeks after our trip to the quarry! It is very hard, shiny, and completely 3-dimensional. Has some ridges running longitudinally from the base (visible in picture), but these fade out and the top half is very smooth. No serrations. 1cm long, 2-3mm wide. Some quick googling makes me think Crocodile Tooth - there is a picture on FossilsForSale.com that is pretty much identical, and is listed as a crocodile.
  7. Please ID?

    Found on sep. 26. 2020 in Split Croatia, on marl site, and I don't have idea what it could be? Appreciate your suggestions, Thanks
  8. My youngest son had to go to Denver to pick up a piece of equipment for his business, and like me, he decided to go the round about way and do some fossil hunting along the way. Him and his buddy went to Bonanza and spent 3 days looking and digging around. It took them awhile, he said they didnt find much of anything the first day, just wasting time digging holes, but then ran into a layer that had some decent stuff in it and kept following that layer for about 30 or 40 feet. They also found some insects and one very cool flower. I wish I took a photo of that. I will post more as i get some of this stuff prepped out. RB Here is a cute little leaf. If you look closely you can see where I prepped out the tips of three places and then I prepped out the stem. Came out purty dang good! It still has to be cut with the water saw but just about done. I will be posting more but have to prep it out first.
  9. End of Year Hunt

    Rains started in ernest today, river hunts will probably be on hold until Spring. Hit another site yesterday in hopes of finding some cetacean goodies or anything worthy of packing out. Found a fish nodule, Aturia fragment with nice color, clams and enough glendonite to cover my neighbors driveway.
  10. Isle of Wight Lizard Vertebra?

    This was found today in the shingle at Fort Victoria on the Isle of Wight and the geology is Solent Group so Late Eocene to Early Oligocene. I am aware that lizard jaws have been found here as well as snake vertebrae but this does not look like snake to me so wondered if it might be lizard? Any help to identify would be very much appreciated. Cheers Martyn
  11. Florissant Fossil Quarry - Colorado

    Well, I'm in my new habitat out here in Colorado, and while I miss dearly a good paddle on the river and my fossil hunts in the mud and sand, I had to make a trip out to our local spot at the Florissant Fossil Quarry. The kids seemed to dig smashing shale (it lasted about an hour), and the technique actually yielded our first decent leaf fossil. The shale smasher .. in disguise !! Dad, wanted to take a lighter approach and we did come home with a large bag of shale and some plant and insect specimens. I'll post some of those in this thread, eventually when I scan them. Splitting the shale you will often come upon Reaaaaly tiny insects that my failing vision has a hard time catching. This winged insect (a mosquito ?!) had bits on each side of the rock so I scanned and composited him in Photoshop. Didn't turn out too bad. I'll let you know what else I find. Raw Scans: Composite: Cheers, Brett

  13. River worn or digested?

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this tooth... first, I was wondering if anyone could I.D it, it appears to have a cusp, so I’d say no to megalodon, so I’d guess either an Angustidens or Auriculatus... second, I was wondering if you guys think this is just a worn tooth that was in the river for a while, or if it was digested, I saw one for sale that looked similar and said it was digested, so it got me wondering, and I figured it was worth it to at least check on the forum. TIA!
  14. Florissant insects.

    Nothing has been said in the Colorado section for almost a year now so lets kick it back up. A little over a week ago I posted some pictures of florissant stuff in the I.D. section. I got a lot of good help and then for the ones we couldn't figure out I tried searching for some that are similar but there's not many different photos online from florissant. I was wondering if anyone could help or if someone knew the florissant formation really well.
  15. Amelia Island, FL Vertebra

    Anyone provide help with an ID on this vertebra? Try as I might, as a serious amateur I've hit the limits of my abilities and could use the collective wisdom. Assumption is that this is a vertebra. Found on the beach on Amelia Island, Florida. I find fossils there routinely and live there part of the year. I find this Forum invaluable to gain knowledge.

  17. Florissant I.Ds

    At Florissant Colorado (dated to the Eocene) my family and I found these fossils and I would like to I D them to know what I found. I didn’t have a 12 inch/30 centimeter ruler so I used my six inch to make a ruler on a piece of paper it is accurate I promise. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
  18. Another bone from the Brazos River

    My boss was at it again and he and his wife found another collection of bone, teeth,fossilized wood, and turtle shell along the banks of the Brazos River, TX. Attached a few pictures and I have it at my desk currently so would be happy to take more/or better shots. Portion had broken off (that's why he gave it to me yay!) which I might try and reattach. I've seen some similar on the site, but
  19. green river fish fossil Knightia?

    16cm long, looks like some kind of Nightia nut I am not sure.
  20. Way back in 2012 I found some blue crocodile bones in southwestern Wyoming and showed you folks some of them. I started prepping them back then and put them down for other projects. This spring as Covid19 kept me at home for a few weeks, I continued prepping this stuff. I wish I could tell you guys how many hours I have on this, but I am afraid to add them up. The first photo shows what this looked like at the end of 2012, until earlier this year. and as of today, it is done. I can ID most of these bones, except the long wide one on the top left of the block. I love the blue colors on these. In the nextfew days I will try to provide you guys with a key yo these bones, but if y'all want to try to ID them... the challenge has been set. (Note, some are turtle bones). This one is my favorite... cool bone, exceptional coloring... a cervical rib.
  21. Hi everyone. I just ordered a cast of a Adapis parisiensis to add to my Eocene display. But after searching for some info on Adapis I have learned that they are apparently extensively studied, but hardly any of the information is available on the internet. So I was wondering if anyone here could help me narrow down some of the very sparse information that is available. I have learned that they are found in the Quercy Phosphorites Formation and in the Paris Basin. But especially on the case of the Paris Basin I really can't find anything on the exact locations where fossils of these early primates were found. Regarding the age of these fossils, I have found that they are from the Ludian stage, which is a European stage that falls in the Priabonian. I know the Priabonian lasted from 37,8 mya to 33,9 mya, but I can't seem to narrow down the exact age of the Ludian. I hope some of you might be able to help me out with some of these questions. Thank you in advance!
  22. A number of Eocene bony fish specimens from Virginia that I collected and donated to the Smithsonian are described in an article by Dr. Robert E. Weems “ADDITIONS TO THE BONY FISH FAUNA FROM THE EARLY EOCENE NANJEMOY FORMATION OF MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA (U.S.A)” published in The Mosasaur Volume XI June 2020. I collected and donated the following specimens shown in the below figures: 4D thru 4F: 5A, 5C, 5D, 5E: 6A, 6B, 6G, 6H : 7B: 8A, 8B: Marco Sr.
  23. I need some help with some I.D.'s. These were both found in some matrix I collected recently in Craven County N.C. The exposure is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, ?Comfort member. The site produces a few shark and fish teeth, crab claws, echinoids and starfish ossicles. It is a limestone / bryozoan hash. It is possible of course that this stuff is recent or even possibly Pleistocene as I have found pieces of mastodon teeth very close by. First is a small mammal tooth, 4mm long by 2.2 mm wide. Next is a small jaw piece with teeth. I first thought fish, then was thinking lizard. But I really have no idea. The entire section is 10.6 mm long. the teeth are very very small.
  24. Flora of the Clarno Formation

    Hello fossil friends! I'm a bit late getting to this, I've had some personal complications. Late last month I had the absolute pleasure of going on my first fossil hunt! I'm calling on your assistance for some IDs as I'm extremely new to this part of the fossil world. From my research I was hunting in the oligocene/eocene volcanic deposits of the Clarno Formation. Here are some of our finds, curious if any of you recognize these or can point me to some good literature. Unfortunately I have very little knowledge of fossil flora in general. One of our common finds were these robust orange fern pinna, which from my research I believe may be Dioon sp, or saccoloma Gardneri We also found a few of these, which seem to also be fern pinna, they are lighter in coloration and seem to have a higher density of pinnules so I believe it's a different species. Not sure about this one
  25. Hello my friends ! I just wanted do share pics of superb. male Jumping Spider ( Salticidae ) that i had. It is not often to see so amazing, colorful and well preserved eyes of jumpers so a little showing off I will upload more photos in comments. Cheers from Poland !
