  1. Reptile fossil???

    Hi everyone. Saw this fossil online being labelled as fish or reptile fossil. Very cool and interesting piece but I can’t really see what It could be... I don’t think it is a fish fossil. It is 22cm and weighs just over 1kg. I have no location... sorry. On the 4th picture there is some kind of bone or scale material, don’t really know... What to you think? Anything helps. Thanks! kind regards
  2. Fish

    I was wondering if anyone knew the identification of this fish, and if it is a genuine fossil?
  3. Martinichthys! (Maybe?)

    I found this little guy that's labeled as a Martinichthys rostrum, its 2.4" long and was retrieved from the Niobrara formation. But I'm not 100% sure on the ID, mainly because I know little to nothing about Niobrara fish (but I'm learning something new every day!). Is this an accurate ID? Help would be greatly appreciated!
  4. I recently bought this fish fossil from a seller in France thinking it was 6 cm. I was completely wrong and it is a whopping 15 cm, it is in really bad shape and seems real. The only problem is that the Rock is super light, I was not expecting a rock of this size to be this light. I want to know if it's real and if it is, what species it is. P.S. There are also a lot leaf fossils on it.
  5. Hello. Every once in a while I see these "juvenile Diplomystus" listed on our favorite auction site. The fins seem to match Diplomystus, but it would be great if someone with more GR knowledge than me could shed some light. The little guy is 1" long, tiny
  6. Rhadinichthys

    From the album Carboniferous animals

    Rhadinichthys sp, UK coal measures.
  7. Unidentified fish from Guizhou

    Any idea what kind of fish is this? It is from Guizhou, at the same layer of Keichousaurus. Sorry, that are all the photos I got from the collector.
  8. Fish Vertebrae?

    Would you please help me Id this fossil? Based on what I have seen on this forum, some type of fish Vertebrae.
  9. 12-Foot Devonian Aquatic Predator (Hyneria lindae) Redescribed

    Just saw this published.https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/05/180507153124.htm
  10. Jurassic fish

    This is my most complete fish, and I found it last year. I went fossiling yesterday and found more fish bits, so hopefully it's a good layer of clay for fish. I thought understanding this one might help me with the individual pieces. More experienced people than me pointed out it's probably a skull, and there are vertebrae at one end (right hand side of first image). But I've been looking at fish skulls and I'm still confused. It looks like a snout at one end, which seems wrong. Is this distorted? I thought it might be Aspidorhynchus as that had a long rostrum, but I think it's more likely to be a leptolepis as they are more common. It could just be I dont understand the skull. Any pointers would be appreciated. Jurassic, from the Oxford Clay, Peterborough formation.
  11. Are these fish genuine? Any painting? They are said to be from the Green River Formation.
  12. Dear Fellow Fossil Fanatics, I just had a great day at Big Brook, found some shark teeth but also 3 specimens that I am not sure at all what to make of. Any insights would be awesome! Best, Huttner
  13. Juvenile mioplosus?

    Hello. I did a double take when I saw this Knightia alta for sale. I see this fish has a pair of both dorsal and ventral fins. I'm thinking this may actually be a Mioplosus, but it could also be a priscacara but I'm not really sure. Would anyone have any idea what it is? P.S the picture quality is aweful, but it's the only picture the seller has posted.
  14. A Brazilian Fish

    I have this fossil fish, no location attached (other than green river which I think is wrong) but I am fairly confident it is from a Cretaceous formation of Brazil. Any idea on species? Any info much appreciated. 5 inches long, about an inch and a fourth wide at widest. gonna take a second to get the pictures in
  15. fossil skin

  20. Malagasy Fish Fossils

    All I know is that they may be from Madagascar - any help identifying the type of fish and age would be great. Triassic perhaps? I'm afraid I have no more information. Thank you!
  21. Are both fish on this plate Asialepidotus shingyiensis? The fossil is from Xingyi of Guizhou, China.
  22. Fish skull material?

    All found Myrtle Beach South Carolina as for these last two I'm curious about the alignment of the robin skull plates, would it be something like this? Any ideas or info appreciated!
  23. Fossil Fish head

    I bought this interesting fossil online. It's meant to be a three dimensional fossil fish head. Preserved with mouth wide open. It was collected from the london clay of the isle of sheppey, kent, uk. Is this actually a fish head or just looks like one? If so would it be possible to come up with an ID?
  24. Hi, the two specimens shown below are said to be from the Green River Formation. I am not sure what species they are and if they are painted. Any advice would be much appreciated.
  25. Tiny little fish

    A nice surprise happened last night as I was putting my best fish finds away from a trip to Sseth's quarry in Kemmerer, Wyoming last summer. I accidentally dropped a nice Knightia and while piking up the broken pieces, this is what was hiding inside!!! Almost didn't see I due to the tiny size. Any thoughts to species??
