  1. Hi everyone! Today is received a bunch of unidentified fossil shark teeth found in a now closed sand quarry in Lede Sand, Lede Formation, Balegem, Oosterzele, Belgium (Eocene, Lutetian, 44 mya). I was hoping some of you might help me out with confirming the ID's of the teeth. I have some idea's what the ID might be, but I am not entirely sure about most. Tooth 1 & 2: Definiatly Sandtiger teeth with fine stiations on the crown. That makes me believe that these are probably Striatolamia macrota Tooth 3: Same goes for this one, I also believe this might be Striatolamia macrota Tooth 4: My favorite tooth of the bunch, I am doubting between Brachycarcharias lerichei or Hypotodus verticalis (Upper lateral) Tooth 5: No stiations and a worn cusp 3 mm away fro the base of the crown Hypotodus verticalis? (Upper anterior) Tooth 6: Hypotodus verticalis? (Lower anterior) Tooth 7: Either Hypotodus verticalis or Jaekelotodus robustus Teeth 8 - 11: Brachycarcharias lerichei? Tooth 12: Not sure about this one, maybe Macrorhizodus nolfi anterior tooth or Parotodus sp.? Tooth 13: Looks closest to Xiphodolamia ensis Tooth 14: A tooth with cusps and striations Striatolamia macrota? Tooth 15: small cusps and striated Striatolamia macrota? Tooth 16: I have not really a clue which one this could be. Tooth 17: either Odontaspis winkleri or Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 18: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 19: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 20: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 21: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 22: Not sure about this one either. Could it be Jaekelotodus sp. or Paratodus sp.? Tooth 23: Striatolamnia? Tooth 24: Striatolamnia macrota Tooth 25: No sure either it has a weird root and no cusps, maybe Macrorhizodus praecursor? Tooth 26: Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 27: Sand Tiger, but which? Tooth 28: Odontaspis winkleri or Carcharias sp. or Hypotodus verticalis? Tooth 29: Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 30: Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 31: Brachycarcharias lerichei That were all of them, I hope I wasn't too far off with some. I look forward to reading your imput. Thank you in advance!
  2. Modern cuttlefish jaw?

    Hi guys, found this a while ago, I assume it is modern as it seems to be too soft to be mineralised but thought it was pretty cool anyway, found in bracklesham bay, it’s definitely some sort of cephalopod jaw so cuttlefish may be the only option
  3. Hi everyone! A couple of weeks ago I aqcuired some microfossil samples, one of which was a sample from the Lede Zand, Lede Formation, Oosterzele, Belgium (Eocene, Lutetian, 44 mya). The sample is very rich in Foraminifera & shell fragments, but I also managed to find a tiny shark tooth. While I already searched at belgiansharkteeth.be I can't seem to find a match, perhaps due to it being so small. So I was wondering if anyone here might be able to help me out, I would be very gratefull. Thank you in advance!
  4. Show us your associated dentitions

    Hi guys i haven’t really seen a topic where people shared associated dentitions, if they have that would be cool to know this can be any sort of animal and any amount of association ( ie im not talking about a whole shark)! Here is my first contribution have fun!
  5. French lutetian fossils

    Hi guys these teeth are from an old, closed location I’m be in France and I couldn’t find any description of the fauna, they are lutetian, so I have based my ids of some English localities I’m more familiar with 1. I think some type of parotodus? 2.galeocerdo latidens? 3. isurolamna inflata or brachycarcharias lerichei?
  6. Help with shark tooth

    Hi all. I need help with this shark tooth. It comes from an European Lutetian. After doing some research, I have found the genus Macrorhizodus as a possible candidate, but my knowledge of these critters is very limited. Can someone help me? Thanks in advance
  7. Back to my favorite Lutetian. In situ. At home. Scleractinia indet. Agathiphyllia gregaria (Catullo, 1852)
  8. Some chompers in need of a solid ID

  9. Lutetian tooth

    Hi guys found this earlier today and it isn’t the usual striatolamia or other sand tiger teeth, it reminds me of physolageus segundus or maybe abdounia beaugei from the ypresian London clay , however I’m not sure if those species were around in the lutetian, any help would be greatly appreciated thanks also sorry for lack of scale I’m away from home and don’t have a ruler it’s about 3/4cm slang height

  12. Archaeonycteris trigonodon Revilliod, 1917

    From the album Vertebrates

    Archaeonycteris trigonodon Revilliod, 1917 Middle Eocene Lutetian Messel near Darmstadt Hessia Germany As far as I know, four bat genera with a total of 8 species are known from Messel: Palaeochiropteryx tupaiodon and P. spiegeli, Archaeonycteris trigonodon and A. pollex, Trachypteron franzeni, Hassianycteris messelense, H. magna and Hassianycteris? revilliodi. The genus Palaeochiropteryx is the most common and smallest bat from Messel with a wingspan of around 26 to 29cm. Archaeonycteris is much rarer and somewhat larger - the wingspan is about 37cm. The largest bat in Messel is Hassianycteris magna with a wingspan of almost 50cm. Lit.: Revilliod, P. (1917): Fledermäuse aus der Braunkohle von Messel bei Darmstadt.

  16. Back in Bidart

    Hi, i went back in Bidart at the beginning of this month, and in May. I found some coprolithes and stegasters (cotteaui and bouillei). Here i mostly wanted to show the complexity of the geology of this place, and also its beauty. Here is the beach of Erretedgia Towards the north, to the beach of Ilbaritz, you can find several geological strates. Here, you can see the KT limit : on the right the marls of the Maastritchian, on the left the pink limestones of the Danian.
