  1. Ichthyosaur rib part

    From the album Holzmaden

    A small Ichthyosaur rib part from the lower Jurassic of the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.
  2. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    Here is a 1.5 cm long Ichthyosaur tooth with a nice structure from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Another picture:
  3. Acrocoelites

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a beautiful 15 cm long Acrocoelites (belemnite) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its special because of its great preservation and because it has an enlarged furrow, which was probably caused by an infection or a bite. One of my best belemnites until now! Two more pictures: The enlarged furrow:
  4. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    Here is a little (about 1 cm long) Ichthyosaur tooth from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany).
  5. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) with a belemnite fragment from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Two detailed pictures: Sadly the tooth is broken and a little piece is missng.
  6. Here are two of my best belemnites I found this year in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale) . I found tons of them this year but mostly they aren't that good preserved. The first one is about 15 cm long and is a relatively new find. I finished the prep yesterday. It's really good preserved and not too short. It should be Acrocoelites because I think I can see three apical furrows. Noticeable is that one of the apical furrows is really big. Maybe @TqB can tell a little bit more about this belmnite? And the second one is a 14 cm long belmnite with a crushed epirostrum. It could be Cuspiteuthis tubularis or a Acrocoelites inaequistriatus (thanks again for the ID Tarquin). Sorry the pictures are not the best but I thought some of you are more interested in seeing some invertebrate stuff from that quarry (normally I show the vertebrate material). Thanks for viewing
  7. pterosaur bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a 11 cm long pterosaur bone (maybe a flight phalanx) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. It was a very luck find as I found it on a stone, which I took with me because of another fossil. So I am very happy with this find although the preservation is not the best.... Two more pictures:
  8. Steneosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Another picture:
  9. pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ... Some more pictures:
  10. Probably Plesiosaur bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    This seems to be a kinda rare find because maybe these are plesiosaur bones. Plesiosaur is the rarest marine reptile in the area of Holzmaden so I am pretty happy with this find On the plate are two ribs, a phalange and an interclavicle. But I am far away from being with the ID although I already showed it too some local experts. Its from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Unprepped: Some more pictures of the prepped specimen:
  11. Last Sunday I was able to find a piece with some jaw bones and teeth of an Ichthyosaur in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. I was very pleased with that find because the situation in the quarry is not the best. There is only a kinda small pile of stones where you are allowed to search (and where you can find marine reptile fossils, in the other regions of the quarry its very unlikely to find a bone or a teeth of a marine reptile). And this pile consists at the moment only out of very small rocks because they were laying until the beginning of the year there. So many collectors already searched there. And it's very likely that they don't get new material in this summer... Here is a bad picture of the quarry: And here are some pictures of the jaw bone with the teeth: The prep work took about 5 hours. It's a pity that I lost that missing part in the quarry. I searched about 1 hour for it but couldn't find it. But at that time I didn't know that its a jaw bone (no teeth were visible). Now about 65 small Ichthyosaur teeth are visible. They are from a very small Ichthyosaur, maybe even from a juvenile!
  12. Crocodile cervical rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a 5.2 cm long cervical rib of a crocodile. Its from the Posidonia Shale (Lower Jurassic) from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Another picture:
  13. Unidentified bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is an isolated, unidentified bone from the posidonia shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its very difficult to determine these isolated bones but it might be a part of a skull bone of a marine reptile ... Another picture:
  14. Ichthyosaur rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    A tiny 10 cm long Ichthyosaur rib from the lower Jurassic of the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. At first you could only see the cross section. The prep work took about 2 hours (I was slow ) One more picture:
  15. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.4 cm long Ichthyosaur tooth from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Some more pictures:
  16. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). That black fossil around the tooth is petrified wood. Some more pictures:
  17. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Some more pictures:
  18. Last Sunday I was for about 6 hours in the quarry Kromer (Lower Jurassic) near Holzmaden (Germany) and I was kinda successful there. Besides several teeth I found a beautiful piece with croc bones. At first only a cross section of a bone was visible but during the preparation some more bones got visible. I am not finished yet but I prepped about 4 hours until now. This is a picture of the unprepped stone: And after 1.5 hours: I will post a picture of the current state today... I am very excited about this find because crocodile material is much rarer than Ichthyosaur material in Holzmaden. And I never found such a croc bone until now. I am really not sure what type of bone it is. Maybe from the pelvis or from the shoulder?
  19. Crocodile vertebrae

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are two crocodile vertebrae from the lower Jurassic (Posidonia Shale) from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The bigger one is about 8 cm long. Here is a picture of the unprepped fossil: The prep work took about 10 hours. I am very pleased with this find because in general crocodile bones are much rarer than Ichthyosaur bones in Holzmaden. Some more pictures:
  20. Last Saturday I was in the quarry Kromer (Posidonia Shale, Lower Jurassic) for the first time of the year. Maybe some of you already noticed this topic: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93302-prepping-a-plate-with-some-ichthyosaur-vertebrae/ Beside of this plate I also found some other cool things but firstly here is a picture of the quarry: You are allowed to search in the heaps on the left behind the white car. The material isn't that bad at the moment. I was there about 6 hours and I found about 6 teeth. I already prepped three Stenosaurus (crocodile) teeth: 1 cm long: 1.8 cm long: (the best one) And 1.2 cm long: (damaged) I also found this fish: The cross section is about 5 cm long and it will need very much prep work... I don't think that I will do this one in the near future although a friend and expert said that this is a kinda nice find! My favourite finds were the bones. I found several incomplete ones which I didn't take home but also the plate with the vertebrae and another plate with some bones on it. Here is a picture of one of the visible bones: I think that should be an Ichthyosaur Humerus but I am not entire sure. I will post some more pictures of it tomorrow and after the prep. There are also a couple of ribs on the plate so it could be interesting! And for all the invertebrate fans. Here is a sweet little ammonite: Thanks for watching!!
  21. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.8 cm long Steneosaurus (crocodile) tooth from the Posidonia Shale in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The prep work took about 1 hour with my air pen and my sandblaster. Some more pictures:
  22. Ichtyosaur rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    A kinda interesting combination out of an ammonite, a belemnite and a partial Ichtyosaur rib. It wasn't very difficult to prep but all in all it took about 3 hours. The belemnite is about 10 cm long and the partial rib is about 11 cm long. I found this one last year in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Some more pictures: And the unprepped rib:
  23. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.5 cm long Ichthyosaur tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale).
  24. Acrocoelites

    From the album Holzmaden

    This one is a 14 cm long Acrocoelites from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Some more pictures: This is one of my favourite Belemnite from there.
  25. Acrocoelites (?)

    From the album Holzmaden

    Another belemnite (perhaps Acrocoelites) with a length of 10 cm from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale).
