  1. Exceptionally preserved Jurassic sea life found in new fossil site Martindale, R. C., T. R. Them, B. C. Gill, S. M. Marroquín, and A. H. Knoll, 2017, A new Early Jurassic (ca. 183 Ma) fossil Lagerstätte from Ya Ha Tinda, Alberta, Canada. Geology (2017). DOI: 10.1130/G38808.1 (Open Access paper) Yours, Paul H.
  2. My grandfather was a medical doctor and a well known entomologist. He was specialized on geometrid moths and described several hundred new species. He even has his own short Wikipedia article . But I don't know the first thing about insects. That's a bit embarrassing - if he knew that, he would turn over in his grave. So I could need a helping hand. I got several insects from the Middle to Late Jurassic of Daohugou / Inner Mongolia, but I have no clue what they are. Any help to nail down the order or family is greatly appreciated! Thanks Thomas Insect 1: 3cm Insect 2: 2cm

  4. Hello! i have found this rock laying on the surface of a dry saharian river. It is a dark blue hard limestone with some fossils in it. This facies is known here as between upper oxfordian and lower Kimmerijian. I think it's a kind of coral. Is it really? i have put some "vaseline codex" on the rock to make it more bright. Sorry for my poor english. Site: Laghouat, Algeria, north africa.

  8. I picked up an interesting plate from the Solnhofen Plattenkalk. Can anyone identify the interesting little creature above the floating crinoid? That is a Saccocoma, correct? Thanks for your help!
  9. Hi all ! A little more than a year ago, I had the opportunity to finally travel to Solnhofen (Germany). Thanks to my brother, who works in Germany, and gave me the opportunity to dedicate a small part of the Christmas holidays to enjoy the magnificent Upper Jurassic of Solnhofen. I have to admit, all types of the "konservat lagerstätte" have always made me fall in love. I am always fascinated with some exceptional preservation! For many years, I had been waiting for the opportunity to meet, FINALLY! to the Sciurumimus and Archaeopteryx Now, I can sleep much calmer, now that I have looked at them face-to-face! Apart from these two jewels, I was able to enjoy the magnificent collection that they possess in the Museum of Solnhofen. Which I recommend visiting ("Förderverein Bürgermeister Müller Museum Solnhofen") I remember that day, the German cold was tremendous! Still I tried to visit the outcrops, and below 20 cm of snow, I enjoyed opening some frozen lithographic limestones. Although without much success more than a mold of ammonites and half pneumonia! How cold it was! But it was a Great Trip !. Here I share it with you!

  12. Hello again, Last year I found this chunck of dinosaur leg bone in the Boulonnais, North of France. Jurassic sediments. See this topic: I just polished a small piece and I am very happy with the result. I made a comparison with a picture from the internet of a duck-billed dinosaur on the left and my piece on the right. You can see the growth lines! source:

  22. Couple Jurassic plants we found today from the shuttle meadow formation. Extra thanks to Tim for the company and expertise. Had a great time splitting rocks and finding stuff.
  23. I have finally found the courage to display just 3 of the fossils that I I am just a "baby" in terms of even the novice hobbyists. I cannot guarantee that they are all completely clear of matrix material. I am concerned that my as of yet limited knowledge, could/would likely negatively affect the "Arrested Beauty" that has been set before us; as a "annal" before before written language. These fossils were found at home, in my backyard near Maple Valley in King County Washington. As I have said before, I am new at this, but as far as I can tell from the limited information I have found in my search for clues, the area where I live has formations from the Mesozoic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. My best educated guess (if you can call mine educated), is that at least number 1 and 2 (from left to right) are foot/hand bones from a Pterosaur. I am fairly confidant that #3 is one end of a femur. Unsure of the animal given that to me, they all look so very similar. I am absolutely not confident enough to make a guess as to the specific species. I am skeptical of my general assessment, given that I have found no evidence that any other fossils of the like have been found in the area; immediate or otherwise. I have also found what I believe to be small diameter pieces of fossilized ivory/tusk here. With that being said, please be gentle. I keep talking myself out of even posting these out of fear of making yet another fool of myself (only in a different way). I defer to my much much more experienced peers. Please do let me know if any other angles, etc. are needed for identification.
  24. Hi, opened this up, wondering what it is ? Thanks.
