  1. Fossilized Fish - Brazil

    Members, during a trip to Brazil almost 20 years ago, I purchased this composit of 4 different fossilized fish. The fossils of the fish look authentic and I tried to take photos to demonstate the relief of each fish. But I beleive they were "arranged" into this one piece. Not sure if and how getting 4 fossils into one piece is done. I am more interested in knowing if the fish are indeed authentic and what the individual species of each are? Also, is it possible to gague what period they are from? I am hoping someone will tell me that I did not haul this 10 lb piece back to the US in vain. Thanks in advance. I look forward to any response and hope everyone is safe and well. Respectfully, Dubs
  2. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale Found this very small tooth like structure and was wondering if anyone could confirm if it is a tooth or not. Normally I can identify teeth if they are large enough, but this specimen is very small. I have found teeth before in these concretions but much larger such as a possible Symmorium or Glikmanius along with a tooth from a member of Eugeneodontida. Here are some images I edited that might make some details more clearer:
  3. Wyoming Wonderland

    It has been 10 days since my trip to Wyoming came to a close. I have done a rough cleaning of my finds and will display some of them for you. To begin with, I had a continuing education class in Jackson. The scenery around the Tetons is truly breath taking. But I was eager to depart and begin a fossil hunting adventure with the 3 free days I had left. I love my bald eagles and found this photogenic pair as I departed town. My first stop was NE of Farson in an attempt to find some petrified palm wood. Here is the "road" which brought me to where I thought I should be. No petrified wood was found but I did put a few specimens in my bucket. I believe these are some algal structures??? They littered the butte that I was hunting on. This was not the start that I wanted, but just enjoying the openness of the Wyoming countryside made up for the lack of finds. I finished the day by taking in this sunset before departing. Tomorrow will be a new day and the fossil gods may be kinder, at least I hope. The next site is south of Wamsutter, and the hopeful finds will be "Turritella agate". This Green River Formation (Lamey Member) fresh water snail species is really Elimia tenera, not turritella. I must thank @jpc for directing me there without a hitch. This site appeared on google earth to be a hop, skip, and a jump from the gravel road. It is MANY MANY JUMPS!!! Had he not told me to continue until I saw these hills, I would have experienced my second failure. As you approach the hills, the road forks and the right fork takes you up on top giving you this view. UP top, Elimia are everywhere, for miles and miles!!! Every dark rock in this next photo' foreground contains them. An individual rock typical of what you see in the previous photo:
  4. Devonian Fish?

    This specimen is from Quqing of Yunnan Province, China. Devonian period. Any idea if it is a placodermi?
  5. Bony fish Id

    Help with this would be great. Besides the knightia and rhacolepis
  6. Peace River - Fish Material

    Hi everyone, I have some material from Peace River, Florida, that I think is mostly from fish. I'm a lot better with sharks, while I have some idea what these things are, confirmation would be great. This vert is about 1" - is it too small to be a shark? Would this be a ray tail barb? These look like barracuda teeth to me, though the 2nd and 3rd may simply be broken shark teeth Lastly, I'm not sure if this is even a fossil - 1 1/2":
  7. Hi, Just wanted to check if this fish skull bone from the Kem Kem in Morocco is real or not? I think it is, but I wanted to get opinions about this fossil. Seller states that there is no restoration only a few glued fractures. It is 12cm in length. Thank you.
  8. Pennsylvanian black shale unknown

    I found this while splitting some Middle Pennsylvanian black shale (Carbondale Fm) today in Illinois. It certainly looks fishy, but I haven't seen anything like it before. Any ideas?
  9. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I assume this could be some part of a fish, as I have found other parts of them inside a few of the concretions from the Muncie Creek formation such as cartilage, or it could be some sort of crustacean part but I do not know what this one could be.
  10. Vertebrae question 2

    Hello again are these 3 in fact vertebrae and if so can you tell if fish, ray or shark? as always my apologies for a lousy iPhone 5 and my thank you for your help
  11. Fish Vert ID please

    Hello and thank you in advance. These are two verts which I believe are fish. I am asking for confirmation of that (and if not fish, what?). And if at all possible what kind of fish. The big one is under 1/2 inch long and the small one is 1/4 inch
  12. Isolated Pennsylvanian micro tooth

    I found this teeny tiny tooth when I was smashing some matrix from the Pennsylvanian La Salle Limestone. It’s about 2 mm tall and has a shiny tip and more matte “root”. Since this is a marine deposit my assumption would be that this is a fish tooth, but is it possible to identify it any further? Here it is on the matrix: and here is the tooth itself:

    Fish tooth from Douglas Point, MD. 3mm Not shiny like Drum Fish.
  14. What am I??

    Hi can someone explain to me just what this is or what it might be? It looks to me to be a fossil of some sort. Thanks for your help
  15. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I was cracking Open some Concretions I found and this Came out of one! Unfortunately not in One piece. I was fortunate to find almost all of the pieces, including the tip, but do not know what adhesive to use Never the less I would like to know what species this is from! I have found various prehistoric fish parts from the rock Pile this has come from, Such as teeth from Eugeneodontida and Cartilage. The tip
  16. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian most likely Raytown, Wyandotte Limestone Formation I usually collect a few limestone concretions from a rock pile I go to and a few pieces of what appears to be bone popped out! Unfortunately when it did crack some of the pieces went flying and were unrecoverable While I do not know if it can be identified, I can hope it can somewhat be recognized. In the area I have found fossilized Cartilage through my Concretion cracking adventures and have found teeth from specimen of Eugeneodontida in the area. I also have come across the usual Brachiopods, Crinoid stems, Bryozoans, Rugose corals and petrified wood in the area. I believe this is some sort of fish bone, as to what it was? I have no clue. Below is the left side of the concretion
  17. Dear Experts and Collectors- I am new to your group and I have limited experience with fossils. I have a large number of fossils I have inherited recently and am trying to get identification of the fossils- I have been advised that most of these are from South America. Can someone help with identification and other relevant information? I can also send additional photos if needed. The coin in the photos measures 1.5cm in diameter for scale. This is just a small sampling of the larger collection and I thought I could start with these. Thanks, Scott fossil 1.jfif fossil 2.jfif fossil 3.jfif fossil 4.jfif fossil 5.jfif fossil 6a & 6b.jfif
  18. Diplomystus prep

    Hi all, I recently acquired this large Diplomystus fish from holdinghistory, not cleaned any of this materiel before so it’s been a bit of a steep learning curve, still lots to do but Im enjoying cleaning this. Thanks for looking Regards Neil.
  19. Unknown Fish IDs

    I am currently going through some of the fossils I bought when I was a kid. The fossils I am looking to potentially have ID’d are a few fish fossils that I bought from a couple museum gift shops. For this reason, I do not have much info on them which I realize could hurt my chances of getting them ID’d. I thought I would give it a shot and see if anyone recognized these fish. 1. Fish from Brazil during the Cretaceous 2. Fish of unknown location and age 3. Fish of unknown location and age
  20. Fishing in the Devonian

    Last weekend we were invited by a few friends to joint hem on a fieldtrip in Famennian ( Late Devonian ) deposits in Belgium. They sometimes visit this place specifically to look for Devonian plant material. Although paleobatany is not our cup of tea they convinced us to come along because they had also found fish remains from time to time, so we tagged along in the hope to find some Devonian fish. At first we didn’t find much apart from the plant material, but one of our friends led us to a boulder where he had seen some fish scales on a previous visit. And indeed, after closer inspection we saw a big scale on the surface, but also a fish tooth from a Dipneustes. So once we knew what to look for we checked out different layers with the same correlation as the one where we had the first fish remains. It didn’t take us long after that to find a deposit where we found other fish remains, although the layer was hard to get to we did find some loose rocks from there that we cracked open with good results. Finally we got home with multiple scales from Holoptychi and Tristichopterids, a few Dipneustes teeth and we even found a quite impressive Arthrodire placoderm jaw. Most of this material was really brittle and we had to consolidate most of the specimens before extracting them. I would say not a bad catch for a first try at famennian fish Field pictures: This is an overview of some of the best finds from that day: dipnoi teeth: Tristichopterid: Holoptychius: The placoderm jaw:
  21. Hi everyone, Have been fossil hunting at Achanarras quarry and I have found what I am sure is an complete Dipterus valenciennesi. The only problem is that it is covered in a thin layer of hard stone. I am just wondering if anyone has had any experience with preparing Caithness fish fossils and know what tools are best for the job?
  22. All, Where are the best places to find different types of fossils with in 75 miles of Colorado Springs?
  23. Hi all My kids and I found this tooth in one of the feeder creeks of the NSR in May. Someone said that it could be a worn Protosphyraena tooth. The leading edge is sharp; whereas, the trailing edge is round. It's also mostly compressed and broad-based. Any information or thoughts is much appreciated! Thanks!
  24. I need help identifying this Bone I found after a storm at OBX. The sandal in the picture is a mans size 10.
