  1. Hello there fossil forum! A few of you may have read my post about my 2 trips to Bornholm, a Danish island that holds a lot of different fossiliferous geological layers. I had specifically been digging by a location called "Hasle beach", where mid-jurassic sandstone layers are present. There have been found a few plesiosaur bones/teeth there, as well as 2 possible dinosaur bones, still being described, and also a few footprints. Other than that, mostly what you will find here, is shells, and occasionally hybodont shark teeth. As I mentioned in my last post about Bornholm (you can read it here), I found a ratfish/chimaera tooth together with the drummer from my heavy metal band. Our guitarist and bassist were nearby, as me and the drummer sat in one spot, opening several large eroded sandstones together, when suddenly a small black lump was visible within the orange sandstone. It turned out to be a chimaera tooth. When we were done digging for the 7 days we were there, we handed some of the stuff over to the museum on the island to check it out. I took the chimaera tooth with me home. About 1 and a half month later, a renowned Danish paleontologist made a lecture/presentation about dinosaur finds on Greenland. In between one of the breaks in his presentation, I got to talk to him, and I had taken some of my finds from Bornholm with me, including some plesiosaur bones, and the chimaera tooth. He took some of the stuff with him, to examine closer. He sent some of the bones back last month, saying it was some partial vertebrae fragments, which wouldn't be of interest to the geological institute. However, the chimaera tooth was interesting, as it was unlike other chimaera teeth found at the location. Today I just got an email from the paleontologist, that the tooth is in fact from a new species, and will be included in a scientific article about chimaera-fauna in the Hasle-formation! It has officially been declared "Danekræ", which is a title all "scientifically important" fossil-finds are given. It becomes state-property, and the finder/finders of the fossil are rewarded with some cash, as well as the honors of having their name attached to the find!

  9. Archaeohippus mannulus, sp. nov. Monroecreekian/Harrisonian terrestrial claystone Arikareean, late Oligocene/early Miocene Pinellas County, Florida On permanent display at the Florida Museum of Natural History, Gainesville, Fl. I discovered this particular specimen back in 95 while collecting fossils in a shallow creek. Initially thought to be a new species of Miohippus, it was sent to the Museum Of Natural History in Gainesville Fl. for further studies. In 2003 it was determined to be a new species of Archaeohippus rather than Miohippus.
  10. New Tylosaurus

    I thought the mosasaur fans here might enjoy a fairly recent bit of mosa-research… This paper describes the very well preserved skull and associated postcrania (a few vertebrae, some pectoral and pelvic girdle elements, a partial forelimb and a hindlimb) of a new tylosaurine mosasaur species, Tylosaurus saskatchewanensis. The holotype material of this tylosaur is from the Upper Campanian (Late Cretaceous) Bearpaw Formation of Saskatchewan, Canada. The paper: Jiménez-Huidobro et al. 2018 new Tylosaurus species.pdf A sneak peak at some of the material described (articulated dorsal vertebrae) - scale bar is 10cm: Hope you guys like it

  13. I published the book Fossil Echinoids of Texas last November. Since that time other people have come forward or found new species. I am currently working to add and addendum to that book. Currently in have 5 new species that will be included in the addendum. Included are 2 new Salenias (1 from the Weno and 1 from the Glen rose), 2 Cidarid spines, 1 new Tiaromma. If you have any Texas echinoids that might be new, I would love to study it (them) and if it is new, I would gladly add that specimen to the publication. Please give me a call and we can talk about it. I live in New Braunfels. Bill Thompson www.echinoids.com
  14. New Welsh Dinosaur

    Hi Here's a selection of news links to the new Welsh Dinosaur that was found by Nick Hanigan and Rob Hanigan in South Wales, UK There are lots of stories out there. We made all the UK newspapers yesterday, we were trending on Twitter and the BBC website in the top stories. We made most news bulletins throughout the day and appeared on a number of radio and TV shows. The story seems to be slowly filtering overseas as we've had reports from Europe and the US.

  15. Welcome to a very special gallery topic! It will be exclusively dedicated to fossil specimens our members have contributed to the science of Paleontology! Their fascinating stories will be found elsewhere within this new forum. However, the posts in this Pinned topic will serve as a visual reference for those fossils our members have donated to further research in science-based museums and universities. So, let's get started. Please follow the format and guidelines below when posting in this topic: Common or Scientific Name. Geologic Formation or Geologic Age. Region the fossil was found. Museum or University that received the fossil. A short note explaining the reason for the fossil contribution. Please include a link to the topic about your fossil (if available). (attach your fossil photos here) Please use the linked topics to continue any discussion or congratulations. Your fossil donation to the science of paleontology will be recognized by The Fossil Forum with this icon under your avatar: Thank you for sharing your fossil contributions.
