  1. Is this anything?

    I’ve just recently sifted through some permian micro matrix from Oklahoma and I came across this and wasn’t sure if it was anything at all, it was very uniform and sleek so I didn’t immediately assume it was a pebble, it also had that strange split on one end. I’m not even sure if it’s a fossil.
  2. Seed or something else?

    Hi, was on a road trip a few weeks ago for work and stopped at a spot where rocks had been excavated along the road. These rocks where full of partial leaf imprints and stems, alongside Trilobites and bivalves. The first pic is of a few partials I found, second pic has the fossil in question and a stem or leaf of sorts. I am not sure of the age as I'm still trying to piece together how there are leaves with the devonian fossilsI'm guessing that the the rocks are from different layers, the fauna bieng middle to late devonian while the Flora is permian in age. Anyway, will not be getting a chance to go out there anytime soon again. What do you think the spherical fossil could be? Thanks
  3. Permian footprint?

    It's from Coconino, Arizona But i'm not sure it is footprint or just pressure Thank you for your help
  4. Permian bone ID?

    This little bone is around 2 cm long and I’d like to know if this specimen shows any indication towards a species. It was found in a set of micro matrix from the Wellington formation, Oklahoma
  5. Dimetrodon tooth?

    I’ve just found this tooth in some Permian micro matrix from the Wellington formation, it is serrated and around a centimeter long. I’m thinking It’s dimetrodon or some sort of other basal synapsid
  6. Permian Claw ID

    This claw was found in some micro-matrix I recently ordered, and I need help with a possible ID, I was thinking possibly Varanops or Edaphosaurus. It is advertised to be from the Ryan formation, now called the Wellington formation. The claw is just shy of one centimeter long
  7. Permian fossil help

    I’m sorting through some micro-matrix that is said to be from the “Ryan Formation” however I’m pretty sure that’s just the Wellington formation. I’m looking for some sort of ID on this, It’s about a half centimeter long. My apologies for the poor photo quality, It’s just so tiny and my equipment isn’t good enough
  8. Elongate Permian Fish

    So I've been following this fossil for awhile now, there was a fossil that was found in the Marl Slate of NE England. It has odd traits compared to the usual fish found in the slate, as it has a elongate body. This is the link to the original article https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10361199 Is it possible to determine if its fish or another vertebrate like an amphibian? Do any of you know of any species of elongate Permian Fish species?
  9. Discovered fossil tracks determined to be oldest known in Grand Canyon National Park ABC, Channel 15 News, Arizona The open access paper is: Rowland, S.M., Caputo, M.V., and Jensen, Z.A., 2020. Early adaptation to eolian sand dunes by basal amniotes is documented in two Pennsylvanian Grand Canyon trackways. PLoS ONE 15(8): e0237636. A related paper is: Francischini, H., Lucas, S.G., Voigt, S., Marchetti, L., Santucci, V.L., Knight, C.L., Wood, J.R., Dentzien-Dias, P. and Schultz, C.L., 2020. On the ;presence of Ichniotherium in the Coconino Sandstone (Cisuralian) of the Grand Canyon and remarks on the occupation of deserts by non-amniote tetrapods. PalZ, 94(1), pp.207-225. Yours, Paul H.
  10. Hello everyone! I don't know if anyone would be interested but I have this Apateon pedestris I purchased a while ago that I would love to trade for something else. The fossil is from the Permian Pfalz formation in Odernheim, Germany. The shale it is on is 8 cm x 10 cm
  11. secodontosaurus tooth

    Hello, This is my recent acquisition. Small tooth (5 mm) described as belonging to Secodontosaurus from Oklahoma. Would appreciate any comments. I am still learning about Permian creatures Thank you, Tomasz
  12. Hi, Recently acquired "Earth before the dinosaurs" book by Alain Beneteau. Published by Indiana University Press. Very comprehensive and well illustrated position. There are not too many books regarding paleozoic vertebrates. It gives good sense how the life looked like in the late paleozoic time. How much diversified early amphibians and mammals-like reptiles were. It is more a popular science book, but a good one. Tom
  13. Trilobite ID

    Hello. Can somebody ID this one for me? I bought this trilobite from a seller in China via online site. I don't have the location or the formation.
  14. I am just wondering. Have anyone on here found microfossils from Flowerpot Shale/Formation? The age is Permian. I dug up a few kilograms of micromatrix from this formation in Woodward county, Oklahoma a couple months ago. I'll be using this topic to post any finds as time goes: although it would take me several months or years to go through it completely, depending on how busy I am. I still have three other different micromatrices to go through.
  15. Hello all! Any insight on this unidentified fossil, from Eastern Arizona, Chinle Formation, would be deeply appreciated. I'm presuming it's a partial phytosaur jaw, but I really have no idea. Originally from a family who collects on their private ranch. Please see images, which includes extreme close-ups. [P.S., this is the 2nd of 5 specimens that I'm posting for ID today; I deeply appreciate any insight that you can provide]. With gratitude, Ryan
  16. Probably a sponge but....

    This was found among one of the large chert layers in the permian Kaibab Limestone. The sponge, Actinocoelia, is very common in this layer but this seems different or is at least a different presentation or segment of it. It's nearly perfectly round. It's diameter is 3 1/2 cm.
  17. Found this nautiloid. Preservation not so great (but you can see septa) but the colors are awesome!
  18. Kaibab Limestone fish spine?

    Found this in the Permian Kaibab limestone today. Fish spine? The last photo shows a cross section of the mold that it seems part of.
  19. Permian fossils?

    These aren’t exact examples, but they’re very good representations as to what I mean- -Is it rare to find Permian fossils with that bone colored white glossy surface patina, like right here?
  20. I finally finished going through my Oklahoma Permian Matrix from PaleoTex LLC! SO MUCH STUFF! I went through it the first time just with eyeballs (with the help of reading glasses). Then I realized I should use my microscope camera (which runs through my computer which is AWESOME) and see if I missed anything. OH MY GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY I missed a lot! So here are some of the really "minis" from the matrix! Most are so small that it just couldn't even get a pic with my scale, some are less than 1 mm - a speck of dust! . I need to get a millimeter scale, though, for sure. So here are some more finds from the Oklahoma Permian: Mycterosaurus tooth : 4 mm Chevron Bone (part of the tail of an amphibian, I believe? 4 mm A Doleserpeton toe bone! So very tiny. You can see how small it is compared to the 4 mm chevron! I think this is an intervertebral thing? 2 mm Unknown tiny tiny. Can't seem to find out what this is, but I thought it was really really cool looking . It was literally the size o a speck of dust.... which sadly meant I lost it after I photographed it....it just disappeared. a lovely bone. 3 mm Jaw plate...i loved the blueish enamel: 3 mm Same with this "blue tooth" - probably Cacops, I think? 3 mm Another Cacops tooth: 4 mm An unknown jaw fragment: 3mm Captorhinus tooth? 2 mm Doleserpeton jaw plates biggest 2 mm and lastly a Diadectid tooth There are so many more little bones and teeth and jaw plates and vertebras and skull fragments!! Needless to say, it's been great fun looking through all this tiny matrix. i am totally hooked on it!
  21. Heres' are some Kaibab Formation nautiloids I found this weekend.
  22. From the album fish

    Amblypterus macropterus Permian Odernheim Germany
  23. Hello, a bunch of Permian trace fossils that I am interested in buying as a bulk order. Before I can confirm, if anyone could take a peek and let me know that they seem ok, that would be great. All from French locations--but correct spelling may have been jumbled in autotranslate. I'm planning to buy the lot, but if anyone spots anything amiss, if you could let me know, that would be great. They do resemble other similar fossils I've seen for sale online. 1 - Dromopus lacertoides -- Lodeve France 2 - Anthichnium salamandroides - Lodeve France 3 - Anthichnium salamandroides 2 - Lodeve France 4 - Salichnium pectinatus - Lodeve France 5 - x3 ripple marks - Lodeve France 6 - Traces of raindrop - Lodeve France
