  1. From the westphalian of Northern France,I would trade these large plates for other fossils i still not have:) A Lepidodendron trunk imprint and a stem
  2. Pixpaleosky web site

    Hi all, i would like to share my website with you ! It tells mainly about my 2 favorites collections: fish fossils from the world and fossils from South East of France. A bit later I will add dinosaur fossils pictures from my collection. This is in french for now but maybe you can translate or tell me if their a solution because google translate for website seems down. Enjoy http://webfossiles.free.fr
  3. What are these fossils?

    Hi! So I am totally a newbie on the subject and would really like to have your help identifying these fossils i found on the beach between Villers-sur-mer and Houlgate in Normandie, Thanks in advance
  4. https://www.france24.com/en/20190727-paleontologists-find-giant-dinosaur-bone-sauropod-france-angeac-charente https://www.theweathernetwork.com/ca/news/article/massive-dino-bone-discovered-in-southwestern-france
  5. Urchin spine

    Hi, several months ago i found a very tiny and rather flat urchin in a block which had two spines. I managed to disengage the urchin, but it is really too tiny for my camera. The spines are bigger and i wondered to what family of urchin they belong (maybe a cidarid ?) I also join the photos of the urchin that was with them (although i don't know if that would help). @Coco @caterpillar ? The smallest spine : The bigger :
  6. Hi everybody. I friend of mine entrusted me with his fossils and minerals because he wants to make tradings against carboniferous items. If you have coal to trade he'd like something with a mineral Inside (he's from the north of France, so he has plenty of coal). Please, PM me your proposals, i'll show him your photos. A : Saint Germain de Joux, department of Ain, Kimmeridgian 1 2 3 4 5 6
  7. Panopea ?

    Hi, i found that pelecypod in the serravallian of my department (Landes), in France. I thought it could be a Panopea. What do you think ? Note : i can't take photos of the other side because it is too fragile to be totally disengaged from its matrix.
  8. Ammonites from northern France

    I bought a group of ammonites recently and they were described as coming from the Brittany coast of northern France. I don't know a lot about fossil sites along the French coast but after a little digging I came to the conclusion these probably came from sites nearer Normandy. I asked the seller for further information but sadly the person who collected them has passed away. I thought I'd post a few pics here in the hope that someone might be able narrow down the locality a little further. Thanks in advance for any help!
  9. Does anyone have a copy of the following paper: MARTIN V. & BUFFETAUT É. 1992. Les iguanodons (Ornithischia – Ornithopoda) du Crétacé inférieur de la region de Saint-Dizier (Haute-Marne). Revue de Paléobiologie 11: 67-96.
  10. French Therapod teeth.

    These are being sold as french therapod teeth from the chevres-richemont quarry. Can anyone ID a certain species and which one is the best? They are all around 1cm.
  11. Magalosaurus vertebrae

    This is being sold as a megalosaurus vertebrae from France. How does it look and I’m pretty sure megalosaurus isn’t from France so is there a chance that this is poekilopleuron? It is Jurassic late tithonian and is from Re, Charente - Maritime, Dept 17, France.
  12. Albian ammonites

    last weekend on our field trip where we usually search for cenomanian ammonites we also found a few phosphate ammonites on the beach that were washed out on the beach from the lower albian layers. most of them were only fragments or encrusted with phosphate, but I managed to prep few of them with very good results: the specimen on the bottom of the picture: Anahoplites planus Hoplites sp. Euhoplites ochetonus
  13. Bone

    Hello, I found a piece of bone on the beach from Cap Blanc Nez in France. There it is mainly cretaceous but pleistoceen can also been found. Or maybe it is recent, I really don't know. Any help would be appreciated!
  14. Found in South of France

    Found two of these similar shaped stones. They both have the resemblance a tooth. Curious if anyone has any insight. They were found in Charente, France. They seem to be possible internal molds of crustacean. I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any information on this. Thank you!
  15. Hi everyone, Last week I went to the French cliff coast between Calais and Bologne Sur Mer. At Petit Blanc Nez, a coast famous for its marcasite and ammonite, I found a remarkable bone that looks like a tail or a foot bone. I compared it with finger bones or foot bones, but the middle bones are to short to be a foot and there are to many bones to be a finger here's a link that leads to the exact location where i found it: https://goo.gl/maps/nSv73i2kYwXwqhij7 Can you help me out? Thank You!
  16. Ammonite

    I just found this guy in some old boxes. I lost the ID card, but if I remember correctly, it came from France. I don’t know ammonites so I have no clue if this could be identified at all without a precise locality.
  17. Jurassic sauropod from France

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

  18. jurassic marine reptile tooth

    Hello, I found this tooth of a marine reptile 2 years ago in the Bathonian ( jurassic ) deposits of Thin le moutier in France. Is there any one who could give me an idea of what kind of reptile it might be? the tooth is 3mm long Thx, Natalie
  19. I was overwhelmed with prep immediately after the 2011 trip my wife and I took to Europe, so I put down some of the more involved prep work until now. Initially I prepped only the flashiest stuff we found. Happy to be all caught up. Prep involved air scribe, dolomite microblast, and coating with a mixture of beeswax and turpentine. Hope you find them as appealing as we do. First, Drügendorf, Germany.
  20. Help needed to ID vertebrae

    Hello everyone, I was wondering what these vertebrae from a Jurassic formation in France (Vimereux) could be from. I was thinking plesiosaur because of the shape but I’m not sure. They are all around 10cm in diameter and these are the only pictures I have. Thank you for any input. Regards
  21. Hi everyone, I have recently acquired this Xipheroceras from an old collection... it comes from the upper sinemurian of Burgundy in France. The genus Xipheroceras is easily recognisable by its spines on the edge of the whorls but would you have any idea for the species? I have not found much information for the moment.. there is Xipheroceras ziphus, trimodum, drudrieseri but I have no idea of which it could be and if these are the only species I know but there are maybe more... thanks in advance for your help!
  22. Dinosaur fossil sites in France?

    Hello, since it is the holiday for me, I was wondering if anyone here knows about dinosaur fossil sites (or sites in Europe near France) that I could visit and be able to collect specimens from. As I know certain sites like Cherves de Cognac are closed, I want to make sure that I go to a site I am positive I can hunt in. Regards, indominus rex
  23. Here is another piece of my dinosaur collection - this time material from Eurasian countries. Unfortunately don't have any Triassic or Early Jurassic material, so let's begin with Middle Jurassic (Bathonian) of Itat formation, Krasnoyarskyi region, Russia. Theropods are the most common dinosaurs from there, yet their teeth rarely exceed 15 mm in length. Here is my largest one - could be from Kileskus aristotocus, an early Proceratosaurid (ancestor of Cretaceous tyrannosaurs) and the only described dinosaur from this location. Here are a bunch of Kileskus teeth I had before There also likely were more theropod species, similar to contemporary Chinese Dashanpu formation - methriacanthosaurids (equivalent to Sinraptor), megalosaurids and ceratosaurs. Some teeth I have or had that could be megalosaurids due to bulkier shape and finer serrations (all around 1 cm). In addition I have some specimens from diverse herbivores - Stegosaurids Long-necked sauropods (Mamenchisauridae), possible embryonic teeth Heterodontosaurid fang tooth, 5 mm (huge for this species!)
  24. Chimaera dental plate?

    Could this be a chimaera or rather Ischyodus dental plate? Upper Jurassic of Boulonnais, North of France.
  25. this evening part 2 of the preppwork on the ammonites we found this weekend: Next up is a Schloenbachia varians of the Cenomanian of Cap blanc Nez in France: work in progres: the end result: the 2nd one of the evening was a Mantelliceras saxbii found by Natalie from the same location: The specimen is a little compressed and I thought that the center wasn't preserved, I was wrong. Work in progres: the end result: both specimens:
