  1. All, I have got a strange looking osteostracan fish from Stjordalen Fm, Spitzbergen. It is Emsian. It is not identified but generally belongs to the elongated type of osteostarcan fish from that locality. As you can see it shows that a part of the exterior headshield layer is missing showing probably a viscelar/internal structures. Maybe it is an effect of predation or just a mechanical damage during formation of the fossil. Nevertheless, it is interesting. Pictures are not of the best quality but some internal structures seem to be visible. It is a strange looking one. Any comments or suggestions are very welcomed. Thanks, Tomasz
  2. Hi everyone! I've been looking at this fossil and have been interested in acquiring it, but I wanted to post some photos and see what you think. Is it real of fake? Thanks for your time!
  3. Kansas City Mystery Pennsylvanian Tooth?

    Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.
  4. Devonian Fish Scales New York?

    I found this odd piece in a grey shale layer in a place with devonian age matrix and fossils from new york with various layers from flakier layers compact with fossils to harder layers like this gray shale layer that this one thats not as compact with fossils as the other ones. I am unaware of devonian fish remains from new york and I usually do not notice odd minerals in the grey shale layer so this this piece baffles me, these small shiny "scales" sort of reminds me of how the devonian fish fossils of the old red sandstone of the uk kinda preserve but other than that I have no idea what else to compare this to. Any thoughts on this piece will be greatly appreciated as I've never come across anything like it at the site.
  5. I recently came across this very old paper (1899) that discusses an unconformity in the Silurian limestone of Illinois, in which a small lens of Devonian rock was found. The matrix was particularly packed with a variety of fish teeth, including two new species. I, along with the author, found this quite interesting as the nearest Devonian outcrop is 80 miles away in Milwaukee – the Devonian is just not well represented at all in Illinois. In fact, this is the first time I've heard of Devonian fossils coming from Illinois, although the paper indicates that there were outcrops in Illinois to the west, although by over 100 miles. The paper is not super specific on the location of the quarry in question, although it is within 30 minutes of my house. That said, this is a discovery over a century old, so the quarry is certainly filled in by now. Hope some Illinois residents find this interesting. Just goes to show that significant finds can occur in the most random of places. elmhurst_devonian.pdf
  6. Green River Fish Amia Head???

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a second opinion on this piece, a fish head from the green river fauna, while I believe it maybe Amia due to comparisons I'm not to confident, any help/guidance is and will be appreciated.
  7. Bought a fossil online. Wanted to know if it is real or not. I'm a new member, so ignore my lack of knowledge on these things.
  8. fossil found

    I found this fossil on my property at top of Laurelas Grade in Hidden Hills off Carmel Valley Rd. state of Calif. It appears to be some kind of fish. Can anyone give any more information on what this could be? Entire size of rock is approx 6" wide. I have found lots of mollusk type fossils but never a fish. thanks kathleen
  9. Fish 11.JPG

    From the album 1925 Body & Trace Fossil Collection - Ocean

    These three fish specimens are a little harder to see in the pictures but if you tilt the fossils just right you can see the outlines much better. These were only labeled "fish" so I have not researched the species of fish found thus far in Argentina. Out of context you would really have to look hard to see the fossils. Please let me know if I should shoot these a bit differently?

  20. Fish Fossil (Knightia) Structure ID

    Can anyone identify these structures protruding from the top and bottom of the fish?
  21. Hello, I hardly know anything about fossil identification but was given these fossils a while back and thought I ought to know what they actually are. They look fairly common and from research, they look most like an ammonite and a fish fossil maybe but I'm not sure. Any help would be much appreciated and pictures of both fossils are attached. Thanks, Harry
  22. Miocene find from Turkey

  23. Hi Fossil and rock hounds, I found this strange looking piece when looking through my shark teeth. Found it on Manasota Key beach, Florida. I thought it was some vertebrae bone but than I saw 2 barnacles in what might be a grouping of shells. It also has pockets of limestone and small black bones or rocks cemented in some of the pockets and has some weight to it. It is about 2x2". Posted 5 photos of different angles. Has anybody ever seen anything like this? What is it? Thanks All.
  24. Fish Fossil Manasota Key?

    Hi Fossil Finders, I found this on the beach at Manasota Key, Florida along with whale bones and sharks teeth. Front and back photo below. I looked in my book at it looks similar to the pufferfish or porcupine fish mouth plate. Would you agree? Thanks in advance!
