  1. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found f

    Limburg (NL) fossils

    Hello all, Some photo's of my recent fossil hunting trips in the Netherlands (Limburg). All fossils are 73-66 and/or 73-69 million years old (late late Campanian, early Maastrichtien). Mainly belemnites (belemnitella and belemnella sp.), 3 sea urchin genus Echinocorys sp. (my girlfriends top find), one horse tooth (Equus sp.) a pipe and a bone (don't know species). Also on the first photo one trace fossil (ghost shrimp/crab) and one belemnite with holes. Kind regards, Fossilsforever

    Annilids?

    Hello! Here are several photos of a fossilized colony of some sort of worm, or so it appears to me. Please excuse the remnants of clear nail polish I used years ago to increase contrast before I knew better. I came across this in Santa Paula canyon about 2 miles northwest of highway 150 where it turns west at Thomas Aquinas College, Santa Paula, CA. It had washed down decades ago from probably a Matilija Formation exposure. The matrix grain seems quite fine and the rock is very heavy. Although I've been up and down the creek countless times, I've never seen the source bed. Eocene oysters, clam

    Marine Fossil? Impression Fossil?

    Howdy everyone. :-) I think I've gotten a little better at identifying the Pleistocene fossils I've found (and figuring out when an ID is probably hopeless), but on the few things I've found that don't fall into that era, I'm still pretty lost. I found the rock below a while back in the Brazos River, in a sand and gravel matrix in the riverbed near Brookshire, Texas. It looks like a regular nondescript rock on its rounded face (top left), but on the flatter face (the other three pictures), it looks like it was cracked open at some point and revealed somet

    Texas Marine Turtle

    Uncovered in North San Antonio Texas in an area I believe to have been under water at some point and had an abundance of marine life. These appear to be back flippers of different shapes and sizes. The largest one being 14.5 inches. This suggests a rather large creature. I'm thinking marine turtles. . I will post the " flippers" first. I will post what I believe to be the heads of these turtles next. The largest having a circumference of 27 inches.

    Texas Marine Turtle II

    Uncovered in North San Antonio Texas in an area I believe to have been under water that had an abundance of marine life. This is an assumed "head" I unearthed. This is a picture of the left and right side. I previously posted some assumed "flippers". I want to know what you guys think. Thanks for your time.

    Help ID marine fossil? Sponge?

    Hello again Fossil friends! I have another fossil I need help with. Found with other shell and coral fossils in a river shore in north eastern Kansas, most likely Pennsylvanian. It looks to be maybe a sponge with exterior and interior... structure? Couldn't figure this one out. Maybe someone with more knowledge can ID it for sure.

    UK flint microfossil

    This is a sponge(?) microfossil in a fragment of a flint nodule. The flint has been quarried from the south of the British coast, which is mainly Cretaceous strata. It looks slightly like it's an imprint, but, upon further inspection, it is a broken off membrane. Currently (and slightly embarrassingly) I have only whittled it down to Echinodermata... I know, I know, spare me your applause, while my PhD's waiting! More sincerely, if anyone could shed some brighter light upon this, I'd be very grateful!

    UK Convex Spherical Structure (marine)

    Heya! This is a spherical convex structure found in the South of the England. Unfortunately, as I found it when I was very little, I cannot seem to recall the exact location, and, thus, the age. Originally, as a child, I crudely assumed it to be a mushroom... Ah, the wonders of child's minds... More recently, I conducted a study upon it, and, due to the septa and mouth-like crystalline structure at the top, I identified it as a polyp cup of a Rugosa coral. However, I am still unsure as to what it is. Any input would be greatly appreciated, cheers!

    Big Brook Bone

    Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a good start to 2021. Tonight I'm sharing a fossil which has been in my possession for a number of years. I found it on my first trip to Big Brook in Monmouth County, New Jersey when I was only 11. Some veteran fossil hunters took a look at what I found and told me it was a dinosaur bone. Being a novice I took their word at face value, however after a number of years dinosaur hunting out west, I was able to see that this ID was incorrect. When I showed it to a paleontologist at my local university he did not think it was bone at all and perhaps some plant

    An Earbone.. I think

    I was fortunate to go hunting with friends ( including a couple of TFF members ) today. Most of my friends know me as a fossil enthusiast, interested in mammal ear-bones. I am extremely good at identifying horse ear-bones. My TFF friends brought me this fossil find, which I did identify as an ear-bone , and they donated it to me, If I would attempt to get a specific ID on TFF. Because I am thinking marine, let me ask Bobby @Boesse to look at it. It "looks" broken, but I am not sure. The only thing I am sure of i that this find is a fossil. All comments appreciated.

    Bone fragment of some sort?

    I found this fossil at the Molecap Greensand Formation in Western Australia. It's a Late Cretaceous coastal marine deposit, mostly marine invertebrate fossils there, shark teeth too. Sometimes marine reptile fossils and there's also been a couple of dinosaur bone fragments found, plus a pterosaur jaw fragment. I visited there in search of shark teeth, unfortunately I didn't find any but I did find whatever this is. Maybe a bone fragment of some sort? A rib fragment maybe?

    Unknow bone

    Hi all I found this little specimen a while back back and have a tenatave Id for the specimen I am still open to other options as to what the fossil may be. This specimen was found in the marine enviroment of the toolebuc formation in central Queensland.This formation is cretaceous aged about 100 millions years. In this enviroment I have found - ichthyosaur, pliosaur, turtle, shark, fish, bird, pterosaur so the posibilities are there. I have held back on the tenatave ID so as not to push in any direction and to allow alternate sugestions. Thanks in advance for any input.
  16. Found this Fossil at Big Brook in New Jersey. It is a marine fossil site and I was wondering what this object is. It has the texture of a tooth or fossilized material. The object has a cone shape with a pointy tip at the end. On the inside, the object has lines and indents running down the side in 1 direction Images

    Lets talk... Blezingeria

    First off: happy new year, everyone! Blezingeria ichthyospondylus is an enigmatic marine reptile from the Ladinian-stage Triassic, Upper Muschelkalk of Baden-Württemberg in southwestern Germany, first discovered in Crailsheim. Although various material has been referred to the species through time, its affiliation remains unclear. Initially described as nothosaurian and later as cymbospondylid ichthyosaurian, it has most recently been classed as thalattosaurian. Fossilworks, however, still defines it as cymbospondylid, whereas Muschelkalk.eu classifies it as an Eosuchian. Below is
  18. I wonder if anyone may be able to help determine whether this is a bone, and whether it might be from a fish or a tetrapod? It was found in the Middle Pennsylvanian Wewoka Formation of northeastern Oklahoma. It may take me 3-4 postings to upload all 7 images. Best wishes.

    Gastropod (?) ID - Central Texas

    Hello, I just joined the forum in hopes that someone can help me identify this fossil I found this afternoon. It was found in a rocky stream bed in Travis County, Texas, just to the east of Austin. It measures approximately 3.5 cm long, 3.5 cm high, 2.5 cm thick. I'm assuming that it is some type of gastropod, but I'm not sure since I am very new to fossil hunting. Any assistance you can offer would be very appreciated. Thanks! Amy
  20. I found this broken nodule in an outcrop of Pennsylvanian shale in Northeast Oklahoma. I’m wondering if the fossil could be the upper part of a skull? Other common fossils from this site include fragmentary fish remains (e.g., teeth, spines, dermal denticles, and coprolites from sharks and other fishes), as well as invertebrate remains from ammonites, gastropods, bivalves, brachiopods, corals, and conularia. If this is a skull, would you guess it to be from a fish, amphibian, or reptile? I don’t see any traces of teeth in the nodule, but I can provide closer views of areas that might be o
  21. In short, I'm trying to figure out exactly what was on the menu: fish or cephalopods. While sorting through some Oxford Clay fish coprolites, I came across this specimen. It was part of a batch purchased years ago. I must have just assumed the inclusions were fish vertebrae, but now I'm not too sure. I know some vertebrae from some fish fry can be hollow, but the texture/material of these inclusions look very different from anything I've seen (including vertebrae in Oxford Clay coprolites). Because of the color and layers, I'm thinking these may be chitinous. That said, I haven't s

    Hollow spike

    Any idea what this could be? I found it in a creek bed in Central Texas Hill Country. Fossils around here are mostly marine, so I'm thinking coral or fish tooth maybe? The hollow center is closer to one side than the other and appears to have been worn open rather than broken. One end seems to have a ring and the other tapers to a blunt point.

  24. Hey everyone, I found a ton of fossils littered on the ground around a cave entrance about a week ago. I took a few rocks home but can't quite figure out what they are. I've tried my best to light up the fossils for the pictures, but all the details were difficult to see when the photo was fully lit. A 10x hand lens was used to take the close ups. Ruler is metric. Geology: Bungonia Formation limestone, 427.4 - 410.8 million years old. Found in NSW, Australia ROCK 1 I have 2 rocks with the same fossil. I want to say it's a type of solitary rugose coral, but still not sure.. I s
  25. Earlier I asked for help in id of a couple pieces of what was identified as enchodus jaw. This surprised me because it was seemed different to me, in that the teeth were thick and curved. It makes me wonder if these multiple teeth, and jaw pieces are enchodus or something else. I would really appreciate it if you guys could look these over and tell me what you see. All have been photographed on simple notebook paper (ie each line has the exact same spacing-- distorted by my camera)
