  1. capital reef utah oysters

    Hello all, I’d appreciate help with two sets of oyster fossils from Capital Reef, Utah. This post has one object, another post will have the other, due to photo size constraints. These were collected to the E of Capital Reef, in south of Rt 24, 4.2 miles outside the park, on a road heading south. From other discussion, I see references to a limited range of species found here, some posts on the Forum and other places, say they find a single species (Pycnodonte). I think I have something different.The pictures on this post are a cluster rounded oblong shapes, ranging from about 1” to somewhat larger. The picture is from the top and from the bottom. Any help appreciated. Thanks. Tom
  2. Hello everyone! I have been sorting through my collection and have some bivalve fossils to trade. These 5 million year old oysters come from a roadcutting near Shell Hill, in South Australia. The locality is a large oyster bed with 99% of the fossils being from oysters. The locality is believed to be the only one of its kind above the surface in the Southern Hemisphere. There is more shells than what is seen in the photo. In return I would like some other bivalves or shells from your local area. (I am especially looking for shells from European or Asian countries US states other than Maryland and Florida but am happy to receive anything ) Countries I am especially interested in: Germany Spain Portugal Canada If you are interested, just chuck me a PM. Thanks, Daniel
  3. Are these all oysters?

    Hey, these pieces were found in the Normandy, France at the Falaises des Vaches Noir near Houlgate. I was wondering if these are all oysters and oysters pieces or if theres also something different?
  4. Does anyone know what kind of oyster these are? They were collected within the Cretaceous Glen Rose Limestone near Spring Branch, Texas.
  5. Forams bound to oysters?

    Hey all, I am working on a project within the Glen Rose Formation of Spring Branch, Texas. Could somebody take a look at these giant forams (Orbitolina texana) and see what the binding organism is. I originally thought they were oysters but now my professor suggests that they make be barnacles instead... These forams are roughly half a centimeter in diameter

  7. Hello esteemed experts, fellow learners and everyone else. I discovered lately, north of limassol, northwest of Amathus ancient city, 15 miles in, a 3miles by 1mile oval-ish rock formation, 300-400 ft tall, nice views villas and many nice fossils. I am gathering as much as possible, before it gets totally built over (sadly at around 60% now) So. I know what some of them are, or I could research, but why take the joy of sharing island fossils and the group learning opportunity go to waste? I have 50 or more fossils, 100eds of fragments, many concretions suspected to contain goodies, few nothings, and a lot of excitement! Any prep work needed was done with a small geometry tool with 2 needles (diabetes i thing) and custom made iron chisel, with a soft handle so that no hammer is needed. 1)big fatty 1/2 bivalve, 6x6x4cm T.B.C
  8. Fossil of a clam ON an oyster?

    What would you call this? Does it count as a fossil if it's not in sediment? Saw this on eBay advertised as "One in a Billion Ultra Rare Find: Clam Shell Fossil Imprint on an Oyster Shell"
  9. Starfish / Oyster association

    Recently, I did some prep work on a couple of specimens that may turn out to be new crab species. This prep work was done in exchange for some trade specimens that I didn't have in my collection. As part of the trades, my new friend generous provided a starfish fossil. This starfish specimen was loose and a small part of one arm was missing. Since I prefer specimens in the matrix, decided to try to mount the specimen in some matrix. However, since I didn't have matrix from the location, my friend later provided a slab with some oysters in it. Apparently, starfish are often found (when found) in association with oysters. Both sets of specimens needed some preparation. After prepping and reconstructing the missing part of the starfish and the oyster plate, I excavated and molded a spot for the starfish. Wanted to be able to remove the starfish so you could look at the oral side. This starfish shows its madreporite and the small spines on the oral side. Very cool. I recognize that this was a created association, however, it represents an association found in natural environment of the locale. Hopefully, this plate falls within the preparation category. Finished this work in May. Wish I had taken pics of the befores and afters...Argg.
  10. C and D Canal Video

    I just put together a rather shakey video of the C & D Canal in New Castle County, Delaware in preparation for a trip I'm leading this fall. I didn't find anything Earth-shattering that day, but it gives and idea of the locale and the finds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMfXz-_B5fA&t=93s

  17. Fluvana Oysters

    Here are a sampling of the oysters(?) I found in Fluvana last year. Any help identifying them would be appreciated but would especially appreciate direction to good research materials to help me identify the rest of them, provided they are not all variations of the same type.
  18. I finally made it over to Waco Lake this weekend, and I've got to say, it was definitely worth it! Don't worry, I won't go back for awhile...
