  1. Polish Ammonites

    Looking for assistance with the identification of these ammonites from Poland (either Niegowoniec or Odrodzieniec). Age is late Jurassic; Oxfordian. Orthosphinctes? Perisphinctes? The best that I can tell, the ribs on the big one are only bifurcate. Anyone have an idea from which formation they may have come? @Ludwigia
  2. Frozen Fossils

    Hello, everybody! Today I will present you an unusual way of fossil hunting, popular in Moscow - digging ammonites from under the snow! You'd expect that, wouldn't you? Well, it doesnt always involve snow (but often does), especially this year when we don't have it yet, but the site I will be talking about is available only in winter. The Moskva river level is intentionally dropped for "winter navigation" which typically happens at the end of November. Places located underwater become available which is also the case for Markovo foreshore situated some 40km to the south-east of Moscow. The site is famous for Oxfordian ammonites of great preservation quality. Descent to the river. In summer the water level is hiigh enough to reach the pier.
  3. Swiss Ammonite ID needed

    Hey guys, So a month ago I went on a hike at 3000m of altitude to this fossilferous site near Plaine-Morte, Switzerland. There I found mostly ammonite fragments including : Sowerbiceras, Perisphinctes( Properisphinctes?), Deshayites and a few belemnites (Hibolites?) I contacted a fossil expert on fossils and that knew a lot about fossils from Switzerland and he indicated me the genuses above as well as the age : Upper Jurassic, Oxfordian ( 163-157 mya ) I went back to the same site where I found this almost complete ammonite. I have no idea what it is and don’t really want to disturb this expert again since he is very busy. Do you guys have any idea on what it could be??? It is very interesting indeed, one side is still covered In matrix. Thank you for all imput and don’t hesitate to ask me for more info! Kind regards.
  4. Hey all, I thought I would make a thread to show some of my shark teeth that I have collected from the Oxford Clay formation (mainly the Peterborough Member), feel free to comment if I have misidentified anything! Pre-Apologies, some of them are quite small.. Cheers, Jacob.
  5. Help identifyng these ammonite species

    Hi, I found these ammonite specimens in the Oxfordian Ammonitico Rosso facies from the Baleriac Islands, Spain. I know that the preservation state is quite poor but I would like to get some help identifyng the genus and species. I am not familiar with ammonite description but here you have a very basic description of what I see: Specimen 1: No ribs, oxycone/discocone, involut, carinate? Specimen 2 (Taramelliceras sp?): two pair of ribs (primary and secondary), oxycone/discocone, involut Specimen 3: No ribs, discocone, carinate? Specimen 1

  11. Ammonites, POLAND

    Ammonites of Zalas, Poland, Oxfordian Jurassic. Can Glochiceras cornutum Ziegler 1958 be? Thanks for your help.
  12. This Christmas I spent 4 days of fossil hunting with my girlfriend on the French coast. The planning was 2 days in Normandy at the "Vaches Noires" cliffs in villers sur mer and one day at Cap blanc Nez near Calais ( we finally extended the trip with one extra day near Boulogne sur mer ) Day 1: The first day we got at Villers sur mer after a 4h drive from home. Once at the cliffs we had to wait a little while since the tide wasn't low enough, but the beginning of the cliffs were already accessible. The fossil fauna was very variable, we found echinoid spines, echinoids, gastropods, bivalves ( lots of oysters like rastellum ) , ammonites ( mostly fragments ), brachiopods... Our best find of the day was a complete Cardioceras sp. Day 2 started with a visit to the local museum. in the afternoon we got back to the beach. Natalie found 2 ammonites, one of them was a really nice Euaspidoceras. On day 3 we went back North to Boulogne sur mer, here we looked through late Jurassic deposits. Day 4: The last day of our field trip, we visited the late cretaceous of "Cap Blanc Nez"

  15. possible astartid

    Could it possibly be an astartid? Oxfordian of southern Poland.
  16. pareidolia, burrow or pathology

    Oxfordian of southern Poland. Perisphinctidae.
  17. Oxfordian fossil

    Oxfordian of southern Poland rich in Perisphinctidae. Just a belemnite, I suppose? Unlikely a bone?
  18. I live in the Western Sierra Nevada region of California near (on) the Mariposa Formation. I find ammonites, belemnites and buchia (common Jurassic bivalve). I also find cigar shaped somethings (fossils?) in the same strata. They come in many sizes with the larges about the diameter of a US quarter (as are the ones in the picture), down to only a few mm diameter, and their length is one to six cm. The always have a very square hole running down the length of the center. The first time I found one I thought there had been a pyrite crystal that had been chemically dissolved from the center of a concretion, but the wholes are only square in cross section, they pretty much always go the length of the cigar shape. These come from Oxfordian Jurassic shale with the other common fossils listed above. I'll be going back to the main site to collect more Tuesday and hop to post more. Any identification help would be appreciated! Richard
  19. Hi all, Earlier in spring, i had to organise a field trip to "les Vaches Noires" cliffs in Normandy for my association. I decided i should do a trip earlier solo (in february) to see how it had evolved since my last visit. It happened to be kinda useless since with thaw and heavy rains it had evolved so much between my 2 visits... Epoches covered are mainly jurassic (caloivan and oxfordian) but also cretaceous (cenomanian). For pictures of the site itself, you can have a peek to Nala's recent report here : On first visit, i didnt find much that worth mentionning beside a bunch of oxfordian echinoids : nucleolites scutatus and a big ammonites (a bit worn out but still) from oxfordian also : Perisphinctes sp The club trip happened to be much rewarding : In the callovian clay from the beach, i found this nice pyritized Quenstedoceras lamberti On the lower part of the "cliff", i managed to find this one : Quenstedtoceras messiaeni ? and also that oxfordian big gastropod : bourguetia sp Also put my hand on a few complete echinoid spines Paracidaris florigemma spines : On the close up of the bigger one you can see the quality of the preservation : As usual, more samples can be found on my TFF gallery (i also added 2 specimens from 2017 i hadn't shot yet) or on my flickr :
