  1. Toothed Jaw Bone ?

    Hello All, I was picking through some micro material from SE North Carolina, its a mix of Maastrichtian (Peedee Form.) and Eocene ( Castle Hayne Form.). I found what looks like a tiny ( 7mm long) jaw bone with teeth. If it is a jaw bone , is it a tiny reptile or a bony fish ? Or perhaps it is neither but something else. Thanks for your help.
  2. Unknown Oyster or Bivalve ?

    Hello Everyone, I need some help identifying what i have here. I have several pieces of matrix with a shell valve attached. All the pieces are less than 6 inches. They all have sort of a wavy-ness to them. Some seem to be part of a cluster ( 2 or 3 attached at the base) . These are maastrichtian from the Peedee formation in SE North Carolina. Thanks for your help.
  3. Nodules on steinkern

    I’m curious about these nodules along the side of the steinkern, found Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene age strata in the area. Largely Cretaceous from the Pee dee formation. Any ideas welcome! The nodules are 1-2 mm. Are they pebbles that settled in during fossilization?
  4. Serratolamna serrata

    A very nice example of this somewhat common tooth in the PeeDee. It can be almost instantly identified by it's asymmetrical shoulders and difference in numbers of accessory cusps on each shoulder.
  5. Cretaceous Vert ?

    My find found this at a recent quarry outing and is asking for a positive ID, it is cretaceous, pee dee formation, there is also eocene, castle hayne formation there. It is concave on one end and convex on the other end. Thinking croc or mosasaur ? Need some help please. Thanks.
  6. Belemnitella americana

    A very nice Belemnite, uncommon at this site. At 83.7 mm or 3.29 inches, a fairly good sized one.
  7. Gryphaostrea vomer

    This small cluster is in excellent condition. Many of the spines of this oyster are still present, normally these are broken or worn off. It is often found in very large clusters. It was found in the basal sands of the PeeDee Formation at a quarry in Southeastern North Carolina. These oysters are often found in association with Hardouinia mortonis and kellumi echinoids. There has been some discussion (see comments) among knowledgeable persons of the PeeDee and bivalves in general that the I.D. that I have from my source could be incorrect. I feel I must make all who view this aware of the possibility. My published resource for I.D. is "Volume 2 North Carolina Fossil Club; FOSSIL MOLLUSKS page 56. Richard Chandler, Editor"
  8. Flemingostrea subspatulata

    This amazing double valve specimen is a single oyster. It was found in the basal sands of the PeeDee Formation at a quarry in Southeastern North Carolina. These oysters are often found in association with Hardouinia mortonis and kellumi echinoids.
  9. Lefortia trojana

    This very rarely found cretaceous echinoid is fairly easy to differentiate from the much more common H. mortonis. A very high test and a small slightly hooded periciproct. It also has a slightly anterior apical center point. The final picture ( just added with edit ) is as found.
  10. Cretaceous Clam

    This large bivalve cast; 5 3/4 inch wide was found during a hunt at an eastern N.C. quarry.
  11. Anomia major

    A really nice and very well preserved Anomia from the Cretaceous period. Lit: Additions To The Upper Cretaceous Vertebrate Faunas of The Carolinas. Lloyd W. Stephenson, 1926
  12. Phymotaxis tournoueri

    This echinoid was self collected from the basal PeeDee sands at the Martin Marietta Quarry in Castle Hayne North carolina. It has over 50% of the spines attached making it an excellent specimen.
  13. Enchodus ferox Leidy, 1855

    Self Collected from a personal site on the Northeast cape Fear River.
  14. ammonite

    Though only 2 segments this is a good find for North Carolina where complete ammonites are extremely rare. Self collected from the Martin Marietta Quarry in Castle Hayne 28 Mar 2014
  15. North Carolina Echinoid Bonanza

    I was lucky enough to be invited on a hunt to a southeastern North Carolina quarry for yesterday. This quarry contains exposures of the Eocene Castle Hayne formation and the Cretaceous PeeDee formation. The quarry had not been hunted at all since late April / early may, so with all of the rain we have had over the summer and from the recent Hurricane, I wa pumped to get in there. It was a small group of people, only 8 of us, but all experienced quarry hunters. After arriving and filling out all the necessary paperwork we headed to the first area around 8:30. This area was a small section in an old part of the quarry that contained a small but very good section of Eocene material. We decided to stay there until 11 and then move to another area. Well the finds here were awesome. Several very rare varieties of echinoids were found by several of us along with the usual common ones. Bivalves, gastropod molds and brachiopods were also found. There were also a few nice nautaloids found. But, no teeth. However with the amount and variety of other things that was fine with all of us. No one left to head to the second area unhappy. We arrives at the second area around 11:30 and headed straight to an exposure of PeeDee sand. For those of you who remember the posts a few years ago about the "Big Hole" by FossilFoilist, this is the exact same type of exposure. Echinoids and oysters galore. Many of us left from there and continued hunting Cretaceous piles, while others went in search of Eocene material. It was really a fantastic day. One of my best ever at this quarry, and I'm sure a few of the others also. Some of the items found ( sorry I dont have pictures of the others finds) were, Eocene echinoids ...... Echinolampas appendiculatta, Rhyncholampas carolinensis, rare Eupatagus wilsoni, rare Linthia hanoverensis, rare Agassizia inflata, very uncommon Maretia subrostrata, uncommon Linthia wilmingtonensis, Eurhodia rugosa ideali and depressa and a very nice Coelopleurus carolinensis. On the Cretaceous side I would guess there were over 100 Hardouinia mortonis found along with over 30 of the rare Hardouinia kellumi also. There were also a few Hardouinia mortonis emmonsi found, this is a subspecies of the H. mortonis with a higher dome, looks more conical. But the truly best finds of the day were 3 complete and one partial Phymotaxis tournoueri with attached spines. There was also an amazing Enchodus ferox tooth found, it was over 3" and an amazing and extra large Squalicorax pristodontus. lso C. auriculatus but none in great shape. All of my cleaned finds finds on my drying table.
  16. Cochlear?

    I found what appears to be a cochlear. Any thoughts? Greenville, NC. Miocene, PeeDee, mixture of eras.
  17. Hardouinia kellumi

    Collected by myself from the infamous "Big Hole" in Pender County North Carolina.
  18. Aldebarania arenitea

    Found 8 Aug 2013. An extremely rare starfisht, it was 1 of less than 10 complete specimens ever found at that time. It was found in the sand layer of the Rocky Point member of the PeeDee. This layer contains abundant Flemingostrea subspatulata among other oysters along with Hardouinia mortonis and kellumi echinoids. This starfish was invertebrate fossil of the month in 08/2013.
  19. Have always thought that these were spines but they sure do look like miniature Enchodus teeth. Was also curious about this manner of preservation. Have seen it in the New Egypt of New Jersey also. This specimen is from the Belemnitella americanum zone of the Peedee very near the base. Is there a name for this type of preservation? The bony fish mateial is clear and honey colored. Scale is MM
  20. a local collector gave this to me for identification. I think it represents some kind of worm that was attached to the inside of a snail shell which was later filled with sediment. As all the aragonite is leached out of the Peedee Formation we don't have a shell. It is also possible that it is a boring clam of some sort but the flat, attached looking characteristic doesn't seem like a boring clam. any more specific suggestions would be appreciated. Image is about half an inch across. Age is late cretaceous, Maastrichtian.
  21. Aldebarania arenitea

    From the album Big Hole

  22. Have any of you folk found or have a picture of this species? Am trying to find out what "crassostrea" is found in the Peedee exposed on the Cape Fear River as cited in Sohl & Owens 1990.
