  1. Short NSR Hunt!

    I got in a 3 hr hunt before the rain and flooding. Once the water started coming up I had to make a quick exit but still got wet. I managed to find a few things.
  2. Galena Gastropod ID

    This Ordovician gastropod is like no others that I have found. Any knowledgeable members able to educate me?? Maybe a strange maclurite?? Love the hollow crystalline interior.
  3. I walked in tracks all day hunting but still managed a few finds. I really like the coprolite full of little fish bones and the Pleistocene horse ankle bone. I believe the little fish jaw is Saurodon.
  4. Lake Michigan Gastropod or ???

    I'm trying to identify my fossils to create a hands on fossil unit for classroom use. These 2 are stumping me (will post second photo in reply, can't attach it here). They look kind of like snail shells but aren't sharp enough for me to be sure. They're more imprints.
  5. Tamiami Gastropod help needed

    Hello gang, Looking for some help on what you might think these little guys are...they've been in the garage for years and recently been freed! Spoil finds from Sarasota County, Florida. APAC spoils.. Plio-Pleistocene. I had cut this Strombus in half sometime ago to look at its internal chambering and recently decided to remove the contents. To my surprise there were all kinds of things in there and I've only photographed a small number of them as they are just too small. I am very curious about what the 4 guys are just to the right of the Strombus. I've not seen something like them before. The last 2 photos on the right show a more detailed look of just one of them. The last whorl form/ornamentation that differs from the uppers is throwing me..I thought maybe they were an immature shell maybe something like Scaphella and then thought maybe it could it be a Sincola? I've got some other shells I'll be digging into as well as I'm still looking for some Ecphoras and echinoid parts and other oddities. I've got this other Strombus below that shows at least 4 other gastropod species within that shows more good promise. , I have a Panope, a Spondylus and a maybe a Marvacrassatella? that I want to open also that I've had in the garage patiently waiting there for me to get around to. To get things really moving I need to finish mixing up some butvar/acetone to add to the shells exterior as some of them are pretty flaky..my swirling project to get that stuff to dissolve is trying my patience again. Thanks for the help/looking. Regards, Chris Thanks! Regards, Chris
  6. sorry i dont know much about fossils and i was wondering what this was
  7. Fossil Coating

    This is a gastropod from the Old Port Frm (ridgely sandstone). I know the fossil is a chert cast coated with Beekite rings. Any ideas as to what the black "crinkled/wavy/ridged" coating between the Beekite & the chert might be? The pattern is different from the rings above it. It is shiny black in sunlight. Fun fact: this came from a public park inside my city limits and was perched on a little pillar of dirt after the rain from the weekend!
  8. Hello, here I am again with a gastropod from the "Florianer Schichten" of the Styrian basin, Austria (Miocene - Langhian). Its from my hunting trip at "Höllerkogel-18", St. Josef, from 08/16/2018: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/87561-fossil-hunting-at-höllerkogel-18-st-josef-styria-austria-miocene-langhian-ca-15-ma-08162018/ It seems to be a Roxania species, possibly close to R. utriculus (Brocchi, 1814) or R. lamarckii (Deshayes, 1863)? Hight of the gastro is ca. 12 mm. What do you think? Thanks for your oppinion! Franz Bernhard
  9. Please ID mollusks

    Please ID species. Found it in Algarve, Portugal (miocene, I guess). I would also ask you to please advise me how to preserve it. Shall I varnish it? Thank you.
  10. Hello. I am have little to no experience in collecting, but have always been fascinated by the beauty and the story of "nature" that exists and existed on our planet. Yesterday, I found this little beauty in my back yard while weeding our landscaping areas that are lined with river rock. We live in Indiana and we had this rock delivered about 17 years ago. Hoping to get some insight other than what my novice research is turning up. Thank you in advance for any input.
  11. Part three to my safekeeping series. These are some of my finds from the middle Devonian Mahantango Formation of Maryland. Unlike the other formations I posted about, this one is pretty well known for it's fossil contents, so I will keep the introduction and background brief. For those who don't know the Mahantango is a middle Devonian aged marine shale that's part of the Hamilton Group in Maryland. For the most part it's fauna is dominated by brachiopods, but occasional gastropods, tentaculitids, and other animals show up as well. It was deposited in a shallow inland sea with the depth of the sea varying over time. This is only a small fraction of what I have, but it's some of the best. Image 1: Spiriferid brachiopod, Mucrospirifer mucronatus? Image 2: Some odd fragment (possibly trilobite related?) with a M. mucronatus. Image 3: M. mucronatus.
  12. Hello everyone, I found the following fossils along the cost of Lake Huron in Ontario last weekend, and was hoping I could get some help identifying them. I've tried guessing at what they are, but I'm rather inexperienced with this. I also have no clue as to the time periods, sorry! The first one I assumed was some kind of gastropod
  13. Assorted marine critters

    Good morning, all. Here's a few I've been working on today. Found in sw florida, I think I'm in part of the Tamiami formation. Anyway, I think the little snail is possibly Nassarivus Quadredentatus, but not sure. The large grey I think might be Nodipecten, also not positive. The ones that look like little elephant feet I'm pretty sure are a type of coral, but I can't find a match so I could be wrong. The little "toothed" thing I'm thinking is a steinkern, but would like to know for sure, and from what type of critter. Is the button a sponge? And then there's the wormy looking thing, or shell rim? There are 6 objects shown, shots with multiple angles are grouped together. Any help would totally be appreciated!
  14. Siphonalia devexa

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Snail, Siphonalia devexa Middle Miocene St Leonard, Maryland Choptank Formation Drum Cliff Member Excavated from landslide material NW of Matoaka beach access in St Leonard, Maryland

    © Heather JM Siple 2018

  15. Whelk

    Excavated from landslide material approximately 1/2 mile nw of Matoaka beach access. Found 4 that week. Two survived excavation. This is the only one discovered intact.
  16. Sea Snail

    This specimen shows the original sheen and probably original coloration of the shell. It popped out of the matrix as you see it and required almost not cleaning. This specimen was stabilized, but stabilization did not change the appearance at all. Excavated from a chunk of matrix fallen from the cliffs into the Chesapeake Bay. Donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History.
  17. Hello there! I visited @Malcolmt yesterday and he was nice enough to clean up some of my stuff from Penn Dixie (mid-Devonian), including the specimen below. I'm not exactly sure what it is, so I was hoping that someone out there will be able to help me with identifying this little guy, which I think is either a gastropod or a ammonoid - what do you think? These are all pictures of the same specimen, just from different angles. And it's pretty small - only 5mm across at its widest point. Maybe @DevonianDigger can help? Thanks for your help! Monica PS - We found a definite gastropod - a Platyceras of some sort - just barely exposed on the side of one rock, but it's kind of twisted and weird-looking, so Malcolm is going to work on it a bit more - after it's done, I'll post pictures of that little guy, too.
  18. From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Carefully exposed all of these with a dental pick from the lump of matrix in which they were encased. Nothing got moved, just glued insitu. top: Scaphella virginiana center left: Mariacolpus octonaria center right: Ecphora megane bottom left: arcadae indet. sp. bottom right: Glossus sp.
  19. Fish and Snail

    Acquired two new ones today, nothing heart-stopping but just nice to have (and a change from trilobites). * A 6ish cm Knightia eocaena * A plump, mature Platyceras from Sylvania, Ohio (close to golf ball sized).
  20. Cup-and_saucer Snail

    Collected in landslide material in the Chesapeake Bay. Donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History.
  21. Cup-and-Saucer Snail

    Due to the extremely fragile nature of this specimen, and the species in general, I was loathe to clear out any more of the matrix from the interior of the shell, so bits and pieces of other shells are present. The large central piece is the inner "cup," which attaches to the "saucer" at only a very small point in the tip. Collected from landslide material in the bay. Donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History.
  22. Whelk

    Collected from matrix a block fallen in the bay containing index fossils for the Drum Cliff Member, Shattuck Zone 17. Donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History.
  23. Ecphora Snail

    Collected on the beach after a storm. This is an index fossil for the Drum Cliff member of the Choptank Formation, Shattuck Zone 18. Choptank is the dominant formation at Matoaka Beach. Donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History.
  24. Ecphora Snail

    Unusual coloration. Typically these are red, sometimes with buff patches, but not usually all buff. The broken areas show the buff color to be a layer on the outside as there is red showing through the breakage. Collected from fallen cliff matrix in the bay containing index fossils of the Drum Cliff Member, Shattuck Zone 18. Donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History
