  1. Could only upload one image within the max upload. I have many many photo's from different angles but not sure how to upload. The tongue appears to be encrusted in a approx 1-2mm thick crytalised substance, with areas breaking off and revealing the white. There is a larger clear crystal at the tip of the 'tongue'. There is also a spherical object, perhaps an eye, adjacent the tongue. Look forward to your responses. Best, Ron
  2. This was a really cool museum. I especially liked their selection of fish and marine reptiles. They also sported a largely complete tyrannosaurus skeleton, an Ammonite five feet tall and four feet wide, and a large completely intact mammoth. Pelagosaurus Typus A Mary Anning Icthyosaur (Two more were present) Plesiosaur Eryops A large fish (One of the Many on display) A perfectly preserved Crinoid The nicest ammonite (My opinion) Perfect spiral pattern And much more that we didn't get photos of........

  4. Surprise!

    I've just found this big bivalve in pliocene level from south of France.
  5. France coast beed?

    Found this on a beach near Sete, France
  6. eifelian fossils

    Hi, yesterday i found my first trilobites. They are from the french Eifelian : - 390 to - 380 Million of Years. Most of them are very fractioned and the rest is worn but i show here the more presentable ones. I guess they are phacopids. One phacopid mentionned in the geologic file is Phacops fecundus degener. But Asteropyge punctata is also mentionned. 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) I also Wonder what are the following specimen ? A)This one, to me, looks like a coral :
  7. ferns

    Hi, everybody, i had the occasion to make an exchange last Sunday and as i don't have a lot of terrestrial plants, i chose those ferns. They are from the Carbonifer of France : - 358 to - 298 MY. I'd be interested with an ID of them. I think there are more than one species. Thank you in advance. 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6)
  8. I was on holidays last week in southern France,Ardéche,really too hot! but few finds in the cretaceous also
  9. Hi all, So after learning of the inaccessibility of the location Lacoste, I was wondering if there was maybe another location nearby. On Fossiel.NET I found the location Carniol, which looks very promising! https://www.fossiel.net/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=148 Anyone got any tips on how to best find fossils and bring them home? How to look, how to take the fossils out, etc? Any tips or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance, Max
  10. Hi all, Currently I am on holidays in the south of France. We were thinking of maybe going tomorrow to the location Lacoste, in the Vaucluse, in France, to hunt for Miocene bivalves. This is the location where all those amazing giant white scallops (which you often see for sale at exhilarating prices) come from! Anyone got any tips regarding the hunting there? As in how to find the best fossils, how to extract them properly, etc? If we do end up going, I will, of course, make a trip report on this forum I'll be tagging the French fossil hunters, perhaps you guys have already been here and wouldn't mind sharing some tips/feedback @fifbrindacier @Coco @caterpillar Thanks in advance! Best regards, Max
  11. hi from France my first post ..... I've found this scapula (i thought it was?) in a french burdigalien (inferior miocéne) site (Cestas 33 Gironde France) I thought it was from a sea mammal animal , but the very light bone structure make me think that it could be a (very) big bird coracoid bone (like pelagornis?) So your feelings??? (sorry for my poor english..)

  14. Are these all oysters?

    Hey, these pieces were found in the Normandy, France at the Falaises des Vaches Noir near Houlgate. I was wondering if these are all oysters and oysters pieces or if theres also something different?
  15. Yesterday my girlfriend and I made a fieldtrip to the Northern French coast. The tides were ideal to search for the whole day in the late cretaceous chalk deposits of Cap Blanc Nez. The start was a bit slow, not a lot of fossils to be seen, but when going further up the beach the first ammonites started to apear. the result of the day where a few decent ammonites ( schloenbachia varians and Mantelliceras sp. ), a few shark teeth: Natalie found most of them and she found a spectacular cowshark teeth, the first one I ever saw from there. My find of the day was a small but complete Cymatoceras ( Nautilus )
  16. Hello everyone, If there is one of you a collector of brachiopods. I have some brachiopods to exchange (see photos below). Precise fossil finds are provided with the shipments. I still have some other fossils to exchange. I'll put the pictures later. I am mainly looking for brachiopods from any time and the whole geographical area. Please pay attention to postal charges for international shipments. Although for few parcels it is not too high. We must keep in mind. That I live in Switzerland. If you are interested in letting me know. Best regards. Here is the list: Dictyothyropsis runcinata, Middle Oxfordian, Canton Aargau, Switzerland Argovithyris biremsdorfensis, Middle Oxfordian, Canton Aargau, Switzerland Zittelina orbis, Middle Oxfordian, Canton Aargau, Switzerland Digonella divionensis, Lower Callovian, Department of Côte-d'Or, France ( To finish cleaning) Musculina sanctaecrucis, Hauterivien, Canton Neuchâtel, Switzerland
  17. I’ve been looking through Miocene matrix from France from two sites lately. I’m posting a few pictures of what I have been finding. Note the gem jars are 1.75 inches in diameter for size reference. Site 1 I have not found many fossils in the matrix from this site. However, I did find lower teeth from two species that I don’t find on the East Coast of the United States where I usually collect. What I found in total: Centrophorus aff. granulosus 3 mm X 3 mm Deania aff. calceus 2 mm X 1.5 mm Site 2 I found many more specimens in the matrix from this site. Cookie Cutter (Isistius) teeth are very common in the matrix although most specimens are missing the roots. Cookie Cutter (Isistius triangulus ) specimens: The rest of what I found: Marco Sr.
  18. French Miocene shells

    Hi all, Here are 11 different shells, bivalves and gastropods, that I would like to be able to ID down to species level. I got them in a little bag full of these little shells, . I have a decent idea of the genus of most, but I'm lost as to when it comes to species. The shells are all from Ferriere-Larcon, Loire, France. It says on the label that they are from the "Falun de Pontelivien" ("falun" translates to "shelly", as in "shelly layer", referring to the main components of the layer: fossil shells), and that they are from the Serravallian stage of the Miocene (approx 12 mya). These are just 11 of the different species, from about an estimate of 40 different ones. These are the ones I am most interested in IDing for now. But, if you maybe have a document or so with a list or plates of all the possible species from this location/formation, that would be even better! In case better pictures are needed, let me know. Thanks in advance for the help, Max #1: Cardita sp (species... ?)
  19. siphonia multioculata ?

    I went back from Touraine (about 200 km South from Paris) and i found those two sponges which i think might be siphoniae multioculatae, but i'm not expert at all. They're quite flat. Each square is half a centimeter. What do you think ? 1) 2)
  20. During april i and a friend had the oportunity to spend a few days hunting in cretaceous of Normandy, hunting for echinoids. Day one : We drove from brittany through Le Havre to Saint Jouin de Bruneval and Antifer Cape. (3 hours and a half) We let the car on the beach parking lot and hiked south on the peeble shore looking for fossils in the boulders on the beach. The cliff is cenomanian with a bit of albian at the bottom. You have to look carefully on rocks surface for the familliar spherical shape. I found about 20 urchins but thats about it. No shark tooth, just a poorly preserved ammonite (mantelliceras) and a few rhynchonellas At some point we noticed tide was coming back faster than expected, most likely because of the wind pushing the water back. We had to quicken the pace, and made our way through the slippery covered with algae rocks. We finally managed our way back to the car and took the road to Fécamp where we had booked an hotel for the next 2 nights. some finds of the day : Crassiholaster subglobosus : Crassiholaster subglobosus : Cyclothyris difformis : See the all hunt gallery here http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/gallery/album/2849-haute-normandie-april-2018/ or on my flickr : https://flic.kr/s/aHsmiwWft6
