Recently I wasnt very active here but I managed to find a couple fossils in the meanwhile. A week ago I planned to visit the Pliensbach near Holzmaden in Germany. The Pliensbach is a type locality for the so called Pliensbachium, a time period in the lower Jurassic. On the way I saw an old pile with some jurassic rocks and stopped there. Luckily I was able to find some fossils there! Here is a picture of the view I had on the top of the pile: Belemnites are very common there but I found two really nice and big ones. Both are about 15 cm long and they seem to be Acrocoelites(?) ( @TqB ). They are one of my best belemnites until! I also found remains of a very rare layer with many sea urchins and sea urchin spines in it. Too bad I wasnt able to find some urchins but I found some cool plates with many spines. At the top of the pile I found some ammonites from the Sinemurian. I like the pyrite on them! The one I am holding is probably an Oxynoticeras and the other one is a Gagaticeras: Here is an overview: And one more detailed picture: Finally I found a piece of Loligosepia aalensis (vampyromorpha) and some fish rests. Here is a picture of the vampyromorpha: Alter my visit at the pile I was at the Pliensbach for a short time but I didn't really found something I can show. Maybe I will post one or two pictures tomorrow. Thanks for watching
I've been out collecting a few times recently, but sadly, I haven't had the time to show the results of my trips... Here's a few finds I've made over the past few months from Charmouth, Dorset, England. These finds were made over three trips, and two of the trips were with fellow member Josh Macefield - I am hoping he will weigh in with his finds too. A selection of Ichthyosaur bones from my first trip. A selection of Ichthyosaur bones from my second trip. A selection of ammonites (including Eoderoceras, Promicroceras, ?Polymorphites, and Oxynoticeras). A selection of Ichthyosaur bones from my third trip. If you have any questions, or would like more information, close ups or anything else, please do ask! Thanks for looking. All the best, Joe
