  1. Looking for hidden mass extinctions in the fossil record. Big data comes to paleontology https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-00117-1
  2. Hello everyone, I have been looking to do a bit of practice drawing and I thought why don't I try to reconstruct an animal from my fossil collection, I decided Apateon pedestrian should be fairly simple so I went with that. So far I have looked over different fossils and skeletal diagrams and tried to compare them to modern amphibians. One thing from my research that has been very inconclusive though is the skin pattern and texture of the animal. One source states that they had a regular mosaic pattern of scales which is possible considering other temnospondyls but when looking into it more the only thing I could find is another branchiosaurid, Melanerpeton which was found with a pattern on its skin although here it said nothing about scales. Does anyone know where I could find out about what they really did look like, or should I just base it off of what we know about the other branchiosaurid?
  3. Identification

    Hello everyone, I working in dimension stone field in Armenia. This fossils where found in a sample small stone block brought for cutting to the factory, then they were machined polished as standard marble or granite tile. The tile (second photo) is 400x800mm app.16x32 inch. Kindly help me to identify these guys. Thanks
  4. Permian extinction souvenirs?

    Does anyone know of anywhere that sells anything from the Permian extinction layer? I have matrix/micro glass beads from the KT boundary layer, but I can’t find anything like that from the Permian/Triassic boundary layer, but I can’t imagine there just wouldn’t be anything for sale anywhere, so I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction. I’d be curious about remnants of any extinction, but I’m specifically interested in anything Permian extinction.
  5. Hello, I recently found these three items in Custer County Oklahoma where Quaternary mixed with Permian and Cretaceous bedrock can be found. They were all found about 5 feet from each other with items one and two on top of each other. When I hold them they remind me of a terracotta pot in texture and kind of sound like terracotta when you tap on them. I am guessing they are fossilized bone? If it is bone I would love to figure out what it came from but understand that determining exactly what it was from may be difficult. I appreciate any input on what they could be and would also understand if its too difficult to determine. Below is item one, kind of flat.. Maybe a Skull?

  7. I have recently received this Palaeoniscus freieslebenensis from @Strepsodus, and it has some kind of coating around the fish, the matrix is slate and I would prefer to have it without this coating but I don't know if I can remove it, and even if can should I do so or would that risk the integrity of the fossil?
  8. permian tooth or claw?

    Read about the waurika oklahoma permian site on the forum. The directions, location and site description were perfect. I found many small pieces of bone, and teeth and incredible numbers of orthocanthus shark teeth. I have a two pieces that I would appreciate help with. The larger one is 17 to 20 mm (the diameter of a quarter) and the smaller is 5-8 mm in size and a tenth of it in weight. The smaller one looks like what I have seen called a small demetradon limbus claw, and a friend thought the larger was a diaductes incisor. I would appreciate help. The small claw? seems very small for demetradon, and the larger seems very curved for what little I have seen of diaductes. All help and suggestions will be appreciated. This is the only permian material I have ever collected, I have no background to go on.
  9. Rugose or Bryozoan?

    Is this a rugose coral or a bryozoan? There are definite bryozoans in this rock of different types. I was thinking it's a rugose coral, but want other eyes on this specimen. Collected from the Phosphoria Formation in Wyoming, so it's Permian in age.
  10. Below is a very interesting open access paper. Vajda, V., McLoughlin, S., Mays, C., Frank, T.D., Fielding, C.R., Tevyaw, A., Lehsten, V., Bocking, M. and Nicoll, R.S., 2020.

  11. As we all know, the trilobites were on their last proverbial legs coming out of the end-Devonian extinctions, their numbers having dwindled to a lone order, Proetida. I haven't seen a lot of talk about these last few survivors of the trilobite lineage, so I wonder how many of us have one of these survivors! I personally don't, but I'm interested to see the forum's contributions!

  15. What is this object?

    What is this strange object? Is it a bone? A possible fossil? It was collected on the shore of Northumberland Strait, Prince Edward Island, Canada. The strata at this location are generally late Permian, I believe. Thank you for any help you can provide. - John
  16. NSR: Red Bed Unknown

    I dug this directly from the so-called “red bed” (making it Permian) in the north sulphur river. I thought it might be petrified wood, but I am confused as to what the piece is embedded in it. Any ideas?
  17. Found some great fossils with the family today in Central Queensland , braved a dust storm but was worth it. They are all of Permian age in the Tiverton formation which is marine sediment. If someone can give me some exact IDs that would be great. More photos in comments
  18. 2 dimetrodon vertebrae & basioccipital

    From the album Permian era fossils

    Basioccipital about .5" large vertebra about 3" small vertebra about 1.5" *more info to be posted
  19. Fossils from the Coalfields

    A few of the fossils I have found in the Coalfeilds Central Queensland ,Australia. All are of Permian age and from a terrestrial environment, I'm unsure of the species of plants. Hoping to find more in the future.
  20. Greetings fellow fossil lovers! Below is an assortment of fossils from the Waurika clay from the Lower Permian that I'm having trouble placing an id on. Scale bar is in millimeters. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks All! Jacob
  21. I am leaving shortly to spend just over a week in England, more specifically in the Liverpool area, and will be taking a day trip along the coast of Wales to Rhyl as well. I've done some basic research and found that Liverpool sits right on top of Triassic bedrock, and Rhyl on top of Permian bedrock. Are there any sites that would be within my realm to visit and collect at? If so, are there any rules and regulations that I, an amateur from outside the country, need to know about before I go? If there are none, are there any noteworthy shops that I may be able to visit where I can buy some local specimens? I enjoy bringing home a fossil from my trips each time I travel somewhere, the more local the better. Thanks in advance!

  23. Possibly a scute?

    I found this small flat, disk shaped fossil in some matrix from Richard Spur (the Dolese quarry) in Oklahoma, which is Permian material. It kind of looks like a small scute to me, but not real sure. It also does look somewhat like some Pennsylvanian echinoid plates I have found. Any thoughts. The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks.
