  1. English Ammonite

    Hello there, i usually dont buy fossils. What interested me is what i find basically. Nevertheless i acquired a batch of fossils during autumn, mostly tertiary shells ( i knew the seller and was ##### to see it leave a good home. There were also a few ammonites. Amongst those, there was this one labelled as "dactiloceras, england, jurassic" I assume that this is Dactyloceras from Whitby. Could someone confirm that ? Could it be possible to narrow it to specie? D commune ? And last what is the precise era ? Toarcian? Regards
  2. Last weekend I collected a few Callovian Reineckeiinae. I selected 4 for my bookshelf and these ones I will trade for Palaeozoic Brachiopods or Trilobite, to ornament my bookstand, if someone is interested on those. 3rd and 4th pictures are from same specimen. 5, 6 and 7 from same specimen. Thanks, Ricardo
  3. Epidexipteryx hui

    A friend bought me some Copic artists' markers recently, so I decided to draw Epidexipteryx hui. It is a strange little creature from the Daohugu beds of the Jurassic of China. It is based off an illustration by Fabio Pastori in The Bumper Book of Dinosaurs. Apologies for the lines - for some reason I draw better on lined paper Inspiration:

  8. Holophagus penicillata EGERTON, 1861

    Also known as Undina penicillata. Holophagus is a coelacanth with the classical shape that has remained almost unchanged over millions of years. The name coelacanth means 'hollow spine' (from the Greek koilos = hollow and akantha = spine). The caudal fin is divided into three lobes (diphycercal), the middle lobe is a continuation of the notocord. Holophagus has powerful jaws but tiny teeth. Characteristic for Holophagus is the structure of the head bones (frontal) which are broken through in a characteristic way and look like a light construction.

  12. While fossil hunting in the UK I came across this ammonite, taken from the Waterloo mudstone formation in Northern Ireland, which is Early Jurassic in age. It was cracked and covered in matrix apologies for the shoddy job of glueing it back together.. Was wondering if it could be a Caloceras? Any suggestions welcome, many thanks!
  13. Icthyosaur drawings

    Tried my hand at two different styles of drawing an icthyosaur. Don't exactly remember the species I was going for but I remember that it and the fish are both from the Jurassic. this one is a bit more realistic. and this is a cartoony representation.

  15. Unknown Reptile Bone

    Hello everyone. First ever post here so apologies if I get anything wrong. I was recently gifted a fossilised reptile bone from Farringdon, Oxfordshire in the UK, (unknown date of discovery unfortunately but I was told it’s from the Jurassic period) The fossil in question messaures 15cm in length, height 4.5cm(tallest part) and 3.5cm( shortest part), width 1cm (thickest) and 0.5cm (thinnest). As you can see the bone has elements of curvature to it. I have a feeling the piece is pretty sea worn and understand it may never get an ID but thought it might be worth a shot to see what others think it could be! Any ideas anyone?

  24. Jurassic Bone ID

    Hi guys/gals, found this bone a while back, thought was a worn Plesiosaur vert at first but once I removed the matrix a strange shape started to appear, found on the Yorkshire Jurassic coast, any idea's ? Thanks, Alan.
  25. Hello everyone. I'm a geologist/stratigraphist and I've been studying Missão Velha Formation (Araripe Basin, Brazil Jurassic-Cretaceous) for a couple of years. We found some structures that seem to be trace fossils, but as geologists, we assume ourselves to be slightly ignorant in ecologic behavior of species. The MV Formation are corsed sandstones, well stratified, with few purple siltic-sandstone levels with ped structures. These trace fossils I'll be presenting next resemble the top of one of these siltic-sandstone levels. They are tridimensional and cilindric, with an spheric edge on the bottom and the top is not well seen. It have sort of a stratification, like it was many piled up rings.
