  1. Pterosaur

    Hi All Over the past few weeks, things with me on the fossil front have been a bit quiet. But this did arrive in the mail this week. Pterosaur from Bull Canyon, New Mexico Scale is in mm Any ideas what Pterosaur it is
  2. Fern Fossil New Mexico?

    It is from New Mexico, likely from Pennsylvanian formations. Is it a fern?
  3. Phytosaur Tooth ID: Redondasaurus?

    Hi. I was wondering if anyone could help me narrow down the identification of this phytosaur tooth. Is it possible to determine the genus or species from just a tooth? I think Redondasaurus may be a potential match, but it looks like there are a few archosauriforms in the Redonda formation. Thanks for any help. Phytosaur Tooth Triassic, Norian Redonda Formation Quay County, New Mexico CH: 32 mm CBW: 11 mm CBL: 12 mm Distal: 3 serrations/mm Mesial: 3.5 serrations/mm
  4. Fossil or...?

    Found this in the backyard of new home in Northern New Mexico; matrix looks like PA Limestone of the Madera group, which is close by in the Mtns. orange stuff may be geothermal in origin, but also looks like wood. Leaning geologic. Very heavy. Thoughts?
  5. Tyrannosaur tooth from new mexico

    Hello I recently got these two Tyrannosaur tooths form new mexico close to Farmington what could they be form? The more complete one is a inch long the other is half inch.
  6. Hi, I'm a brand new fossil hunter in New Mexico looking for some places to start looking and exploring. Can anyone recommend any good sites to start out? I'm interested in the Rio Puerco valley, but the only site I've found so far with listed coordinates or good specific directions is the Windmill Site, whose forum post is a decade old, and even a decade ago people were saying it was starting to get pretty sparse and picked clean. Is there anywhere else in the Rio Puerco valley area (or really anywhere within a couple hours' drive from Albuquerque) where someone could give more specific directions or coordinates? I imagine it's not as easy as just picking a random spot in the valley to look lol.
  7. Hexagonal shapes unexplained

    I found this recently north of Hatch New Mexico. I was picking up lots of small quartz crystal clusters and thot this was maybe a cluster that got sheared off somehow. After a closer look and bit of a clean up I noticed the side views look like there is “stacked” formations. So the top has the hexagonal shapes and the sides look as if there is fairly uniform segments. The same general area has fossils like fusilinids, crinoid bits, shells at different levels. Also in the area rhyolite, chert and quartz crystal. Anyway, not sure if this is a fossil of some sort but have never found anything quite like it. PALEODICTYON is what came up when I googled hexagonal fossil. Certainly some similarities. Thanks for any help u can give me!
  8. Found Some Bone Today

    Hey folks, Here is a bone I found today. The photo shows it in situ as it was slowly sliding down a slight grade. The area where it was found does not permit collection by citizens so it remains where it was found. The area where it was found is along the ancient shoreline of the Western Interior Seaway on the west bank where the shoreline ebbed and flowed to engulf the immediate area, only to later be dry land at essentially the same level of strata. In the same immediate area where this was found, also today, I located fossilized stromatalite (a water bacteria), and fossilized wood. Within just a dozen miles of the area where I found the bone there have been collections of bone specimens ranging from mosasaurs to plateosaurid-type dinosaurs. Hopefully someone has an idea about this bone to enlighten someone who really doesn't know anything about it, namely, me. Location where it was found is in the San Juan Basin of San Juan County, New Mexico, Kirtland Formation, Upper Cretaceous period.
  9. A new domaeosaurid, Dineobellator notohesperus, consisting of a partial skeleton from the Upper Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) of New Mexico, the first diagnostic dromaeosaurid to be recovered from the latest Cretaceous of the southern United States. The holotype includes elements of the skull, axial, and appendicular skeleton. From the Ojo Alamo Formation Dineobellator notohesperus Article https://phys.org/news/2020-03-feathered-dinosaur-surviving-raptors.html Smithsonian Mag. Article https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/dineobellator-dinosaur-new-mexico-180974511/ Paper https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-61480-7
  10. Jay Dubya's Petrified Wood

    Friends, I seem to collect lots of petrified wood in my nearly-every-weekend outings into the oil patch in the county where I live. Much of what is found are small little bits and pieces and a whole lot of it is really pretty. Some I will try to identify and those may earn their own topic entry, however, others are just nice little pieces that I cut up on my saw and will post the photographs here for y'all to look at. They are just too pretty to not share, you know? All those entered under this topic will be found near my home unless otherwise notated. Some of the petrified wood will have been found by a buddy of mine whose rock I cut up for him from time to time, and those will also be notated here. If no one minds, I probably won't put a scale on the specimens since all of them will be no longer than 4 1/2" on their longest side since that is as wide as my little rock saw can handle. As usual, feel free to comment. Some of this stuff might really challenge your ability to readily recognize what is or what isn't petrified wood.
  11. For your review, here is a specimen of Palmoxylon, sp. (a fossilized extinct palm tree) found in March 2020 in the San Juan Basin of San Juan County, NM. The area is within the Kirtland Formation, Upper Cretaceous Period. This specimen has been cut to show several views of a transition zone in the root ball where adventitious roots or Rhizopalmoxylon, sp. emerge. The first photograph has been diagrammed to show several features in the transition zone. I have also submitted photos of this specimen in the March 2020 "Find of the Month" contest, and a more complete description of the specimen has been made in that entry.
  12. Coprolite verification

    Good morning folks. I purchased this box of coprolites many years ago under the description "Triassic carnivore fossil dinosaur coprolite, New Mexico". Did I do good or did I get taken?
  13. Fossilized Conifer, anyone?

    Some petrified wood found in northwestern New Mexico, San Juan Basin, Upper Cretaceous, Kirtland Formation a couple of weeks ago. The cut slabs are from a log about 6-inches in diameter and my best guess is conifer only because most everything else in that area turns out to be conifer, specifically, Cupressinoxylon sp. Any other opinion about species would be welcome. There are several nice agate bands running through the length of the log and are clearly visible here. The first slab is dry and the second is wet.
  14. NM Conifer from Upper Cretaceous

    A couple of photos showing an unknown fossilized conifer tree located this past November (2019) in northwestern New Mexico, Kirtland Formation, Upper Cretaceous. Sorry for no scale but the specimen is about 13 inches (33 centimeters) long. Also included is a photo of my dig where I removed this specimen as a piece of something larger. You will see this specimen limb is quite compressed, something common for petrified wood found in that area of New Mexico. I have tentatively identified the specimen as a conifer using a DinoLite (see photo). I am seeking help with additional information or identification beyond it being simply "conifer".
  15. I'm piling back in late from a fossil hunt and wanted to get this online. Found in a lower Pennsylvanian formation locally. Typically find cordaites and ferns in this formation. Today, this odd split pair caught my attention. For size reference the small calamite next to the split pair is a little over 5 cm long and 2 cm wide. Although not a great field shot I'm posting it up now in case someone can point me in a solid research direction. Part of me thinks cordaite but the unusual branching features on one side only are quite odd to me. Perhaps some sort of rhizomic structure? I will post a close-up tomorrow when I have access to natural light again. Thanks for any advice or suggestions, Kato
  16. Sponge? Coral? None of the above?

    Found in northwestern New Mexico in an Upper Cretaceous area. Specimen was wetted with water to bring out detail.
  17. Unknown selachian

    Moving on to another species. Any ideas as to what this might be? I have six in the collection from the Cabezon fauna. This is the only complete one (with all of the root). I will send four pictures . Thanks! Randy
  18. Polyacrodus

    Out of over 17,000 teeth pulled out of ant hills in north central New Mexico, I came up with this one isolated tooth. There are a scattering of other hybodontids in the fauna, but this is the only one of this kind. I originally thought this was Polyacrodus parvidens, but upon getting into the literature I have discovered that this species has a high central cusp and the ornamentation isn't as strong as that on this tooth. So now I am leaning to P. cf. brevicostatus, and if this is the case, would be one of the first examples from this state. Any ideas from all of the distinguished people on the Forum?
  19. Something round

    What approximately could be those fossils?
  20. Is it a fossil?

    Was is a part of an alive thing?
  21. Something as fossil

    What could it be? Something curved in the rock. Thanks
  22. Is it plant debris?
