  1. Upper cretaceous nanaimo group strata ID

    So out hunting in some sedimentary rock from the nanaimo group on vancouver island here and found this. Sticking out of a rather large chunk of rock. Any idea what this might be? (If anything?) I've looked through my "westcoast fossils" book but does not look (to me) like anything from that.
  2. mysterious pellet clusters

    I recently found this coral (I'm calling it Platycyathus vancouverensis until I learn otherwise) at my local site, Mt. Tzuhalem (Haslam Fm, Santonian), with apparently a cluster of pellets inside the 'cup' formed by the septa on the top side. Usually only the rounder bottom side is exposed when I find these corals, as the septa tend to hold onto their matrix. I'll try for better pics if needed, but it's tough! Note that they are all quite small - less than a millimeter. Another specimen that I've had for longer, with septa exposed (more or less), seems to have less obvious bumps or pellets. Maybe the septa have some degree of bumpiness but the example in the first pic above seems different from this:
  3. Hi all, I didn't see anything about number of photos in each post so I have a few different IDs I am asking for help with, I've read the guidelines and will try to ensure I cover everythnig. These fossils are from North Cowichan on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. I believe this is the Maple Bay Formation in the Nanaimo Group and is from the Cretaceous period. The rock was very friable/fractured and may fossils were not collectible but I did collect a few and get pics of some in the field. 1. Bactulite? 2. Bryozoan? 3. Ammonite? (8 x 5.5 cm) - I can't quite get a good picture of it but there is an impression of what looks like a ribbed coil ~ 3 cm wide like a segment of ammonite) 4. Brachiopod? (sorry, forgot the ruler in that one but it is ~ 2 cm in diameter) Thanks for any assistance
  4. Long ago, back in the late 1980s, I lived in British Columbia and had the opportunity to collect in the Late Cretaceous Nanaimo Group. I realized that many of the crabs and lobsters I was collecting were undescribed, so I made an effort to collect any material I came across. I tried to find a collaborator willing to help describe the material, but (for reasons I described elsewhere) that didn't work out, and I was encouraged to take on the writing myself. Since I had to focus on my own research career, which actually has nothing to do with paleontology, the project languished and over time most of the taxa were described independently by others, based on specimens collected by other people. Although I would have loved to contribute to the published record of the Nanaimo Group I became convinced that that would not happen. Then, about two years ago, I was corresponding with Torrey Nyborg (a fossil decapod expert well known to some Forum members @fossisle @MB @Al Dente) and found out that he was working on some new species of the crab genus Archaeopus from Vancouver Island and California. I sent him my material, one thing led to another, and the paper has just been published. I am very grateful that Torrey included me as a coauthor. I was also able to contribute the holotype of Archaeopus morenoensis (Figure 15 panel A, attached below), which is actually from California. So thanks to Torrey I feel my long-ago efforts paid off.

  14. Cretaceous marine mystery item

    Anyone recognize this thing? It spans about an inch (25mm) from thicker end to outer edge of curve. Probably less than 2mm thick. Not from my usual Mt Tzuhalem site, but same fauna in the Haslam Fm of the Cowichan Valley.
