  1. Fossil from Bisti

    I posted in the wrong forum. I found this vertebrate? fossil while hiking in the Bisti Wilderness and I would like to know which animal it came from.
  2. Hi guys! I don't post here often, but I'm a PhD student in geology, currently working on tropical Paleogene palynology. I'm taking an unrelated class on the Permian Basin and I am working on identifying some of the fossils our class saw in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. I'm not a sponge expert, and I was hoping someone on the forum might be able to confirm or correct my identifications. I might make a follow-up post on the non-sponge fossils we saw on the trip. A bit of background, these pictures were taken in the field with a metric scale, the scale has been cropped out of the pictures and a 5 mm scale bar is added. No fossil collecting was allowed on this trip so I won't be able to provide additional images. The fossils are from the Capitan Formation, which is Permian Period, Guadalupian Epoch, Capitanian Stage. The global stage name is actually named after the nearby El Capitan peak. Amblysiphonella? Archaeolithoporella?
  3. Hey y’all! Hubby and I have to go to NM this weekend to pick up our son, we’re looking to do a little hounding again. I’ll be researching on places to go in the Alamogordo area. I’m not looking for yalls special sites or anything, just maybe a little advice or idea of an area to look into going. I guess I should read up on the collecting laws there too huh
  4. dinosaur tooth

    found in western NM, is it a dino tooth? any help is appreciated.
  5. Tooth and Mandible Identification

    Hi, I found this tooth and possibly the upper mandible in an arroyo in New Mexico in a place called Copper Canyon. It is about 5.5 miles from Ghost Ranch. The layer is most likely late triassic chinle formation but it's on a major fault. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. All the beauty you see against the blue sky is a story of time from the book of rocks, uplifting, cleaving, and eroding in wonderful ways. I searched and got this Socorro County geologic map. A rather immense amount of study involved in this document. Best at 175% zoom. If I lived there all the time I might come to understand it. https://geoinfo.nmt.edu/publications/openfile/downloads/200-299/238/ofr_238.pdf
  7. Egg or Mineral?

    I am a newbie- found this interesting rock on the side of a hill outside Albuquerque. It measures about 12 inches across the top, with interesting knobs on the top, and striations inside. Could anyone identify this?
  8. New tyrannosaurid from New Mexico

    Hey everyone There's this new bit of research from PeerJ, describing the partial remains of a new tyrannosaurid, Dynamoterror dynastes (pretty cool name, huh? ). The remains were from the Menefee Formation (Upper Cretaceous) of New Mexico, and are a valuable addition to our knowledge of North American tyrannosaurids. Partial cranial material of D. dynastes. McDonald et al. (2018). A new tyrannosaurid (Dinosauria: Theropoda) from the Upper Cretaceous Menefee Formation of New Mexico. Abstract: The giant tyrannosaurids were the apex predators of western North America and Asia during the close of the Cretaceous Period. Although many tyrannosaurid species are known from numerous skeletons representing multiple growth stages, the early evolution of Tyrannosauridae remains poorly known, with the well-known species temporally restricted to the middle Campanian-latest Maastrichtian (∼77–66 Ma). The recent discovery of a new tyrannosaurid, Lythronax argestes, from the Wahweap Formation of Utah provided new data on early Campanian (∼80 Ma) tyrannosaurids. Nevertheless, the early evolution of Tyrannosauridae is still largely unsampled. We report a new tyrannosaurid represented by an associated skeleton from the lower Campanian Allison Member of the Menefee Formation of New Mexico. Despite fragmentation of much of the axial and appendicular skeleton prior to discovery, the frontals, a metacarpal, and two pedal phalanges are well-preserved. The frontals exhibit an unambiguous autapomorphy and a second potential autapomorphy that distinguish this specimen from all other tyrannosaurids. Therefore, the specimen is made the holotype of the new genus and species Dynamoterror dynastes. A phylogenetic analysis places Dynamoterror dynastes in the tyrannosaurid subclade Tyrannosaurinae. Laser-scanning the frontals and creation of a composite 3-D digital model allows the frontal region of the skull roof of Dynamoterror to be reconstructed. You can download (for free!) the paper from this link: McDonald et al. 2018 Dynamoterror dynastes Hope you like this! -Christian
  9. This is a piece that I picked up on a geology field trip years ago in eastern New Mexico. I apologize that I have unfortunately lost the field notebook that contains more specific location information, but I am hoping to get in contact with the teacher that took us there for other reasons and might be able to provide additional information if I can ask him. The section was Cambrian to Ordovician in age: it started with abundant stromatolites, then progressed into thrombolites and finally siliciclastics disappeared during the Ordovician sea level high-stand. If my memory serves, I believe these were found from relatively low in the section and so should be Cambrian, but it has been long enough (about 12 years) that I would not stake my life on that. Since it may be hard to tell from the photos, these are essentially organic material on the surface of the rock with no visible depth at all. I am honestly a little stumped on this ID and, without the field notebook, I simply can't remember what my professor said about them; I remember that I did not know the word he used at the time, but I was new enough to invertebrates that that could mean almost anything. My best guess is that they are gorgonians, but I am probably several phyla removed from the right ID. I am happy to take any additional photos if they will help. Thank you for your thoughts!
  10. Sponge or archaeocyathid?

    This is a piece that I picked up on a geology field trip years ago in eastern New Mexico. I apologize that I have unfortunately lost the field notebook that contains more specific location information, but I am hoping to get in contact with the teacher that took us there for other reasons and might be able to provide additional information if I can ask him. The section was Cambrian to Ordovician in age: it started with abundant stromatolites, then progressed into thrombolites and finally siliciclastics disappeared during the Ordovician sea level high-stand. This piece was found from amidst microbialites, so should be Cambrian in age. My professor identified it as a "sponge" at the time. I am wondering if it is perhaps an archaeocyathid based on the age and the central hole. Either way, if anyone that is more familiar with that area has thoughts on any more specific identification, I would be thrilled! Please ask if you need photos from a different angle or anything like that. Thank you very much!
  11. Two loose stones found near the Santa Fe Opera. Smaller pentagonal fossil about 3 to 4 mm. Larger more linear fossil 6 mm wide and 7 cm long.Now I’m looking forward to finding more. Any help on identification appreciated.
  12. New nodosaur from New Mexico

    A new ankylosaur-related paper has appeared online: Andrew T. McDonald; Douglas G. Wolfe (2018). A new nodosaurid ankylosaur (Dinosauria: Thyreophora) from the Upper Cretaceous Menefee Formation of New Mexico. PeerJ. 6: e5435. doi:10.7717/peerj.5435. Invictarx is the newest addition to a growing inventory of nodosaurid ankylosaurs from the Coniacian-early Campanian of western North America, but is the first to be found in terrestrial deposits in that interval, because Niobrarasaurus, Acantholipan, and Hierosaurus have been found in marine deposits.
  13. Tooth with an interesting locality.

    So I found this tooth on the favorite auction site. The seller labeled it T-Rex but I have my doubts because it looks flat like a nano tooth. But what really grabbed my attention was the New Mexico locality. Most of the stuff I see from New Mexico is Triassic in age from the Bull Canyon fm. Is this really a rex tooth? If so, how did it end up in New Mexico?
  14. Coelophysis Teeth

    Hello all, I was browsing on our favorite auction site and I found a dealer who is selling a pair of Ceolophysis teeth for a rather cheap price, which sent off a warning flag in my mind. The dealer claims that these are from the Bull Canyon formation of New Mexico. Are these teeth real or are my suspicions correct?
  15. Is this the fossil of a seed?

    I found it driving back from Kilbourne Hole in New Mexico I can’t remember exactly where, somewhere on the dirt back from the crater.
  16. Hi! I’m new here ☺️

    hi! I’m new, thanks for having me here. ☺️☺️ I went to New Mexico with my husband and did a Little Rock hounding, we went to an abandoned mine and Doug through mine tailings. We found some nice rocks, then I went up the mountain and found this, can anyone help me identify it?
  17. Road trip fossil hunting

    Hey everyone! My brother and I are doing a bit of driving today and we're looking for places to stop and stretch out out legs and hunt fossils. Were driving through Moab, Utah, on to Durango, Colorado, through Pagosa Springs, down towards Taos, and towards Red River. Anyone have any suggestions?
  18. Drepanosaurus claw?

    Wondering if this could be a claw from a Drepanosaurus. What do you guys think?

  22. Hunting near Albuquerque, NM?

    Hello all! Have to go to Albuquerque, NM next month. Will be driving back with a U-Haul. I want to fill as much of this truck with fossils as humanly possible to make this foolishly long drive worth the effort. Does anyone know any spots in the very-near vicinity of Albuquerque where I can collect? I'm not going to be picky about what I collect, I just want to make the most of the fact that I have to be there! Thanks in advance!
  23. Anyone up for fossil hunting?

    This state forum isn’t too active, but thought I’d try my luck. Anyone want to do a trip or 2 this summer? I am completely new but I can listen well, follow directions, and I’m not afraid to work. Let me know and we can set something up!
  24. So in late June early July my wife, 2 boys (8 & 2.5), my father in-law and mother-in-law and I are going to take a 2 week road trip around the US. We'll be leaving Maryland and heading down to Memphis, Tennessee followed by Nashville then on to Texas and ending up in Albuquerque, New Mexico at my brother-in-law's for a few days, then off to the Grand Canyon, up to Dinosaur National monument, over to Hot Springs, South Dakota to the Mammoth site, Mt Rushmore, and Crazy Horse Monument, then to the Badlands in South Dakota, and then start making our way back to home. We're taking some new paths and going back over some previous ones. I am interested in doing 1-2 hour fossil and/or rock and mineral collecting leg stretches not terribly far off US 40 between Memphis and Albuquerque. Honestly anywhere else near the places I listed and anywhere along US 90 back to Chicago and down to Indianapolis, then US 70 the rest of the way east towards home. I'm hoping if I ask on here I can get a handful of options for the trip, we may only do two or three depending on time, weather and general feedback from the rest of the family. I have messaged PFooley about the Albuquerque/Rio Puerco area. After we get back I will have to make a write up of the adventure, it should be a great trip full of geologic and paleontological fun. Thanks for any information, Adam
