  1. Cretaceous marine mystery item

    Anyone recognize this thing? It spans about an inch (25mm) from thicker end to outer edge of curve. Probably less than 2mm thick. Not from my usual Mt Tzuhalem site, but same fauna in the Haslam Fm of the Cowichan Valley.
  2. (Not sure of the tags I should use.) This is the first instance I've found of any sort of 'bloom' on a fossil in my collection. Luckily it's not the best specimen but it is an echinoid and they are not as easy to find here as in some other places. Sandstone from the Haslam(?) Fm on Vancouver Island. Is this a calcitic bloom from some sort of acid or off-gassing from something in my storage media? I'm not sure how long this has been in this condition but I think it's happened within the last 10 years. I'm trying to keep things away from my collection that might cause this sort of thing. I've got wooden (not oak) cabinets, and the little white fold-up boxes with cotton or cloth substrate. I'm trying to get rid of plastics, foams or anything else questionable, and I can't think of what else there might be that could be a problem, unless simple humidity in the Summertime will do it. (This is indoors)
  3. Odd deposition surface... biological?

    I'd like to put this up for opinions... A thin limy layer interrupting the usual black shales from my usual Upper Cretaceous site (there are bits of the shale still stuck on top here and there). To me it screams of something like a bacterial mat, but I don't know. I can't imagine any non-biological process of formation, but maybe there is one that I haven't considered? The last pic shows an edge to give an idea of the thin lighter-colored layer. These pieces were all from one contiguous surface a couple feet square or so on a chunk of shale - the only one I have found up there so far with this particular pattern, but in other spots at this site and other sites, I have found similar calcareous(?) 'blobs' of all sizes that seem to have something to do with life, sometimes associated with obvious fossils such as Ino- and Sphenoceramus shells (no fossils were evident on this surface, though).
  4. Leaves - Vancouver Island Santonian

    This is not a great photo, it was taken after sunset at the site of discovery, and it's a bit dirty. I still need to trim the huge chunk and wash it off, and it now sits in a spot with poor lighting, so this is the best I can do for now, but maybe someone who knows Cretaceous flora can suggest an ID for these leaves based on the general outline? The one on the right especially has 3 clear lobes, and note the stems. Platanus? I have never found this type before, in 9 years of collecting up there.
  5. It's just an impression, but I find so few like this I had to keep it. Looked all over for the positive but could not find it. It seems so long and narrow for a Bostrychoceras, or is that just an aspect of the impression? 5 whorls visible.
  6. I know next to nothing about shark teeth but I take it this is a cow shark? I know some of you are shark tooth fanatics who I hope can narrow down the possibilities for me. I have difficulty getting good pics of this little thing... I could try for some better ones if necessary. The tooth itself is split between both parts of the matrix. Haslam Formation (Nanaimo Group), Cowichan Valley Vancouver Isl. (my usual collecting site, up the mtn.) This is only the 3rd shark tooth I've ever found, only two of which I still have, and the only one from Mt Tzuhalem so far.
  7. The Crinoid

    Went up the mountain on Sunday, mainly to look for trading material for a couple other members... The workers have been moving more rock around since I went up last week. I've been wishing for years that this stuff could be turned over so that fresh fossils could be exposed, but the now-crushed and dirty rock is harder to find stuff in, so I focused on the old stuff, which has always been weathering and slowly releasing new fossils anyway. Splitting chunks... Anyone recognize this little ammonite? Maybe not enough there to get an ID.. There's @aerogrower's 2cm cube for scale:
  8. Acila shumardi

    Most common bivalve on the mountain. Length is of one valve. Day of collection approximate.
  9. heteromorph: Glyptoxoceras

    The circular variety - in form of overlapping circular loops (see also my other entry for this taxon)
  10. heteromorph: Glyptoxoceras

    The 9-shaped variety. The other variety is overlapping circular loops (see my other entry for this taxon). From the 'sponge site'.
  11. Sponge: Hormathospongia dictyota?

    Same info as for other one I have posted. All the sponges I have collected there come from one very localized spot on the mountain. Exact date is not exact. Nor are measurements due to uncertain boundaries of sponge.
  12. Sponge: Hormathospongia dictyota?

    This specimen was part of a larger crumbling piece with a few more of the same on it. Tried to collect and reassemble but have not gotten very far.. Length is of visible portion of sponge in middle of piece. Date approximate. Rigby's description was of a similar item from same-aged sediments of California. Thanks to 'piranha' Scott for the ID.
  13. Unknown Scaphopod

    Hard to say what diameter is, as anterior end is squashed (about 9x15mm).
