  1. Chinese Fish Fossil

    Hi, this small fish is about 8cm in length. It is from Fuyuan, Yunnnan Province of China. Any idea which species is that?
  2. Last week I went back Caithness area of Scotland in the hope of finding some more Devonian fish fossils. I spent 3 fossil hunting at Achanarras and 1 day hunting at Holborn head quarry. The most productive site I went to was Achanarras quarry. I found fossils of 5 different species of fish.
  3. I forgot to post my last North Sulphur River Texas hunt. I found a nice variety of items. The cretaceous fish piece was definitely my find of the day. I had a crop duster buzz me for at least an hour. I found some nice coprolite specimens and a cool reworked artifact.
  4. This is very cheap and has some red flags eg patch of resto in the middle but what do you guys think of the rest
  5. NJ Unknown - fish Mouth plate ?

    Hi everyone, I have this strange fossil from the New Jersey Cretaceous. When I first found it, I thought it was a sponge. Now I am kind of confused about it. It has a lot of “buds” on it that are embedded on a bony(??) “base” that has striations (might be hard to see this in pictures). I am really hoping that it is a fish mouth plate. Another thing is that there appear to be more small “buds” emerging from the bony(??) “base.” I appreciate any input! Let me know if better pics are needed, I’ll try to make them sharper. @non-remanié @Al Dente @MarcoSr @siteseer @Trevor @frankh8147 @Carl
  6. I once in awhile check out the auction sites just to see what is posted. I do buy things once in awhile but very rarely. Today I was checking out some fossil fishes from china. Lots of the common fish, Lycoptera davidi being posted. All looked really good! Too good! I used that magnifier thingy and took a closer look. To me it was painfully obvious that the fins were painted. Buyer beware!!! and good luck RB
  7. Going through last year's finds I found a few things that I don't recognize. All are from Pennsylvanian marine limestone. The first few all appear to be fish material of some kind. I find plenty of chondrichthyan teeth, but none of these look like any teeth I've seen, although they may be partials. Possibly some kind of bony fish scale? All images were taken under a microscope, no scale cube but they all are about 1/2" at the widest point. #1) #2)
  8. Guitar Fish tooth?

    Abbey wood find
  9. My first post of a few fossils from my collection. This is a fish, found in a quarry in Swanage, Dorset, England, where the Intermarine Beds of the Purbeck Group of limestones are exposed, in order to extract building stones. These "Middle Purbeck Beds" are actually the Stair Hole Member of the Durlston Formation of the Purbeck Group, being deposited at Mediterranean latitudes in a vast system of brackish to freshwater lagoons and lakes. The shallow water limestone beds sometimes have dinosaur footprints on their upper surfaces. The photos show the two fish found (after prepping) which have been recently re-named Callipurbeckia (formerly Lepidotes) minor. The larger of the two is 27cm in length.
  10. We went beachcombing at McFaddin Beach near Sabine Pass, Texas yesterday and found some interesting bones as well as a mammal tooth yesterday. I am aware that most of these are likely not fossils but I was still wondering if someone can still tell me what they are.
  11. I ventured a bit into older territory and found a bone unfamiliar to me. Hopefully someone recognizes this. This was in a creek with rocks from a shallow marine/near shore environment. Thanks. Eagle Ford or Woodbine Formation North Central TX 90-95 mya
  12. Long cold hike.

    Long nine hour freezing hike in Northeast Texas. The partial mastodon tooth and tylosaur jaw section with replacement tooth were the highlights of my day. I dated the old soda bottle to the 1950's. The artifacts were a nice bonus.
  13. NJ Cretaceous osteoderm/mouth plate

    Hey everyone, i have this interesting Croc osteoderm/fish mouth plate. I am leaning a lot more towards Croc, but this one looks pretty different than usual because of the dimples being a different shape and arranged in a row; maybe it’s just from a different part of the body. It would also be complete if it’s Croc, which is unusual. Size is about 3/4”. It is definitely not a concretion in case some pics are misleading (some bony structure is still visible on the back of the specimen when looking at it in person). @non-remanié @frankh8147 @Trevor @Plax @Al Dente @MarcoSr Thanks!
  14. This is not a request on a single specific specimen, but rather of a general nature. The "Pesciaia" ("Fish Pond") in Bolca near Verona is easily Italy's largest deposit of fossilised fish and other minor fauna, and fossils from Bolca are present in countless museums and private collections worldwide. The owners maintain their own local museum and actively sell specimens (I bought my first item there as a child, some 65 years ago), although not through the web - nearly unbelievable those days. You can only buy at their shop. Now to the question: has anyone ever encountered a fossil that was claimed to be originating from Bolca, but was then discovered to be a fake? I would not elaborate now and here on the reasons for me wanting to know. Let's say I suspect someone is taking advantage of the owners' lack of familiarity with the digital world.
  15. Pachyrhizodus Found-Thanks

    I’m going to see about picking up another fossil from a nice gentleman I dealed with the other night. He Has what looks like the lower jaw to a fish with narrow pointed teeth. It’s slightly curved and in 3 pieces. Two of the pieces match one does not. Piece only about 6-7” long and teeth about 14”-1/2” tall. Won’t have it in hand till later tonight. Here’s what I need help with, he couldn’t spell the name but could pronounce it it started with PYU payu sounded like packacu something or another. Any idea what fish it could be? Not much to go on but would recognize it if I saw the spelling and the fish.
  16. Hiodon Falcatus?

    I found this Green River fish at the American Fossil quarry about 4 years ago. I think it could be a Hiodon Falcatus, thoughts? Thanks for the help!
  17. Amphiplaga brachyptera?

    I found this Green River fish this fall while at the Warfield quarry. It is too different from a Knightia and the best match I could find is Amphiplaga brachyptera. Thoughts?

  19. Help with ID of fish fossil

    This fossil was given to my 7 year old grandson by a retired friend who said her mother had collected it in New Jersey 50+ years ago. No other information. We’d like to get some basic information about it if possible. Pictures attached. Thank you for your help.
  20. Hi guys I recently bought this as a replica but having seen nothing like it I’ve been wondering about it’s authenticity to me the fish seems like a decent real fossil , however the turtle seems sculpted and the flippers are all off, the rock seems Like real fossiliferous lagersatte rock With fossil remains apparent on the back what do you thinks?
