  1. Ichthyosaur rib part

    From the album Holzmaden

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

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Sadly its a bit damaged. Another picture:
  3. 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:
  4.  Saurorhynchus jaw

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 6 cm long Saurorhynchus jaw from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale).
  5. Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are four Ichthyosaur paddle bones and another Ichthyosaur bone from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The Ichthyosaur paddle bones are about 5 cm big so not too small. There are also a lot of belemnites on the plate. Because of them the prep work was kinda time intensive. It took about six hours to reveal everything. Here are some more pictures:
  6. 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:
  7. 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).
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. Here is a piece with four paddle bones and another bone from a rather big Ichthyosaur. I found it about 2 weeks ago in the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) and finished the prep today. Overall I spent about 6 hours to prep this one. Especially because of the belemnites. The paddle bones are about 5 cm long. Sadly I forgot to take a picture of the unprepped stone but you could only see the cross sections of the bones on both. But here are some pictures of the progress: Finished: And some detailed pictures: I used air scribes and air abrasion to prep it.
  11. 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:
  12. 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:
  13. 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:
  14. 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!
  15. 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:
  16. Jurassic oddity

    Hi.... Hope everyone is ok and finding some decent fossils.... I'm really struggling identifying what this could be found in lower Jurassic shales from the sinemurian Somerset coast.... It's such a distinct shape I would of thought it might ring a bell to someone.... I'm thinking a carapace segment or bony fish armour plates perhaps... Any help appreciated.... Thanks....
  17. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 3.5 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the Posidonia shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Another picture:
  18. I wasnt very active recently so sorry for that. But the last weeks I was several times hunting for fossils in the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Germany) and in this thread I want to show you some things I found there. As some of you know may know I am mainly interested in marine reptile fossils so most of the finds are marine reptile bones and teeth ... So firstly some teeth. I actually found a lot of them but these are the best ones I found this year: A 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile): Another Steneosaur tooth with a length of 1,8 cm: And the last 1.2 Steneosaur tooth: I also found some Ichthyosaur teeth. Here is one of the nicest from this year: Besides of several teeth I also found some bones. Ichthyosaur bones are the most common type of bones there so I found mainly Ichthyosaur material. Especially I found many ribs but they are mostly not prepped yet. Here is just one little example: Its about 10 cm long. I didnt found many vertebrae this year but here is a pretty neat one with a length of about 3.5 cm: A bit rarer is this little Steneosaur (crocodile) vert: I am really happy that I can say that I found some pterosaur material this year. As these are marine deposits you may can imagine that pterosaur bones and teeth are very very rare. Here is a little 6 cm long and very worn pterosaur bone: Another pterosaur bone: This one is about 11 cm long. I didnt saw that one in the quarry Kromer but I took the stone with me because of a tooth on the other side of the stone so I was very pleased as I turned the stone around at home The next one is probably my favourite find of the year until now: These are also pterosaur bones (the big one might be a humerus?) Some more pictures of the same piece: And last but not least this find: I am actually not sure what it is. Might be pterosaur bone too ( maybe a Scapula?) or another possibility would be a bone from the skull but its kinda difficult to determine isolated bones ... Still many bones and teeth to prep and the year is still young so lets see what I can find/reveal! I hope you like some of my finds and thanks for watching
  19. 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:
  20. 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:
  21. 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:
  22. Steneosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.3 cm long, a bit damaged Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Another picture:
  23. Steneosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A rare crocodile vertebra (Steneosaurus) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Crocodile material is much in Holzmaden rarer than Ichthyosaur bones ... Some more pictures:
  24. 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:
  25. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.6 cm long Ichthyosaur (perhaps Temnodontosaurus) tooth from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). The prep work was kinda hard because the tooth broke into two pieces. Some more pictures:
