  7. Late Jurassic finds

    I spent another day at the Kimmeridgian site in the Upper Danube Valley near Beuron the other day. I had taken my camera along in order to take some shots, but I ended up making so many good finds that I forgot to get it out. Sorry bout that. One great thing about this location is that the finds are easy and quick to prep, so at least I can show you some of the finds. Aspidoceras sp.

  9. Plesiosaur?

    Hi all! What do you think of this vertebra? It was found long ago, comes probably from marine Kimmeridgian-Tithonian outcrops in the Volga basin, Russia. Doesn't look exactly like plesiosaur, but what else?
  10. Lucina concinna?

    Hi guys the info I know is on the label. However, I happen to know that Lucina concinna (deshayes 1857?) isn’t valid, so I looked up the replacement name which is Rugalucina cracentis but it looks nothing like it. I think the label is wrong. Any help would be great, thanks. Also calling our resident bivalve specialist @Max-fossils
  11. I spent the afternoon today exploring the ditches in the Upper Danube Valley and found something in all 3 of them. Spent most of my time at the regular ditch by the side of the road in the end where I've been slowly excavating the Kimmeridgian hypselocylum zone every couple of months or so for the last few years. I took a couple of photos of the work in progress and also one of my finds. I'll post them here again once they're prepped.

  14. A new fossil hunt on the French coast this weekend. The winter storms from the past week battered the coastline and this resulted of course in a few really nice finds. This time we weren’t prospecting alone, but two friends who recently started to collect fossils tagged along . The Saturday morning we prospected the late Jurassic beaches, we started with a slow start, but we finally did find 3 really nice echinoids, and a big ( heavy ) ammonite. At noon we went to the 2nd spot with late cretaceous chalk ( Cenomanian), here the storms really did their work, the recent scree piles were completely washed out and loos fossiliferous boulders were scattered all around. I did found some quite nice ammonites ( Acanthoceras rhotomagense and Cunningtoniceras inerme ), but Natalie hit the jackpot with 2 terrific finds. First up she found a huge and complete nautilus ( Cymatoceras elegans ) only slightly weathered on the side from peeking out of the boulder. A little bit further she found a big turillites ( Hypoturillites tuberculatus) from 25cm, the best part was that it came out in one piece, those heteromorphs usually break in fragments if you try to remove them. On Saturday we went to some Kimmeridgian exposures, but the storm on that day made it really difficult to search and we had to go back to the car’s after a couple of hours due to the terrible weather. But we did find quite a few Aspidoceras sp. ammonites. the saturday morning: saturday afternoon: The stunning Cymatoceras the turillites: The haul from this weekend:
  15. Another dig in the ditch

    I hadn't gotten out to look for fossils for a couple of weeks due to commission work and other things, so I was beginning to itch so much that I spent the day yesterday digging away in my favorite ditch in the Upper Danube Valley where I've been working at prying up bits of the Kimmeridgian hypselocylum zone. It was a nice sunny day and relatively warm for the middle of winter, so it was quite an enjoyable experience, although my old bones were starting to ache a bit at the end of the day. Here are the things I've sorted out for the collection. Streblites tenuilobatus. 7.5cm. Parataxioceras perayense. 5.5cm. Eurasenia trimera and Glochiceras sp. 5x5x4cm. A sponge which may belong to the genus Hyalotragos sp.
  16. From the album Late Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    12cm. hypselocylum zone Kimmeridgian Lochen Formation Found near Beuron, Upper Danube Valley
  17. I finally found a good amount of time to spend several hours in my favorite Kimmeridgian ditch and came up with some nice finds this time around. My largest Ataxioceras (Parataxioceras) hypselocylum to date at 12cm. Ditto for this Taramelliceras (Metahaploceras) strombecki. 8.5cm. A nice Ataxioceras (Parataxioceras) perayense. 5.5cm. Rasenia (Eurasenia) trimera. Also my largest at 8cm. And last but not least an Orthosphinctes (Ardescia) proinconditus. 6cm. I actually stopped in briefly at another site in the viscinity where I found this.
  18. a christmas fossil trip

    Like last year Natalie and I spent 4 days on a fossil hunting trip on a few different locations on the northern coast of France. Each day a different location. The stormy weather conditions made the beaches realy favorable foor fossil hunting as lots of specimens could be found loose on the beaches. We started Saturday with Turonian sea urchins, sunday Kimmeridge clay and limestone, monday turonian ammonites and the last day mostly cenomanian fossils. Highlights of the trip were a few large ammonites ( Lewisceras and Acanthoceras ) and a rare tooth of a marine reptile from the Kimmeridge deposits.

  22. My very last split shift

    Monday was the last time that I did a split shift before I'm headed off to full retirement at the end of the year, so as usual, I took advantage of the hours in between and headed off to the Kimmeridgian site in the ditch in the upper Danube Valley. Found a few nice things again this time. Well, winter is closing in, so I probably won't be back there again until the springtime now, but it won't be going away, since I seem to be the only collector that's interested in it. Lots of sponge amongst those ammos this time.
  23. Split Shift

    I worked another split shift today, so I decided to use the 4 hours in between to visit the site in the ditch at the side of the road in the Danube valley once again. No sense in driving home and back again when your tools are anyway in the trunk. Rain had been forecast for the afternoon, but it looked ok for the time being, so off I went. It's about a 3/4 hour drive and everything was looking good until about 15 minutes before arrival when suddenly over the last hill there were dark clouds with even more darkness below them looming on the horizon. Good thing I brought my raincoat and rubber boots. To make things even more complicated, it turned out that the road to the site was blocked off only about a half a kilometer away from it, so I had to turn around , detour back up the hill and down another road to get there, which cost me about another 20 minutes. That wasn't so bad though, since it was pouring with rain at that point, so I was wondering how long I was going to hold out anyway. As it turned out to my luck, the rain pretty well let up just as I arrived, so I thanked my lucky stars and walked down the road to the new spot I'd discovered about a month ago. I remembered to take my camera this time () so here it is. I'd been here already twice, so you can probably see that I've been working at getting that layer of limestone blocks removed. That's where the fossils are sitting, or rather, lying. So I continued on for about a half an hour in the drizzle, but then the rain started getting stronger again, then it started getting serious and after another 10 minutes it was pouring down in buckets and getting rather uncomfortable. No chance to take out the camera again. At least I had managed to extricate a few ammonites, so I wrapped them up quickly and headed back to the car and thence back to a couple more hours work of another kind. These things prep up pretty quickly, so I got them done already this evening. Actually there wasn't all that much worth keeping in the end, but at least these 2 turned out ok. Taramelliceras sp. 6.5cm. Ataxioceras sp. 7cm.
