  1. Who's Permian feet made these?

    If anyone is familiar with Permian tracks, can anyone ID these? All I can tell is that they appear to be synapsid tracks, but not Dimetrodon. I'm assuming that means Edaphosaurus is out too, but that's all I can figure. the ONLY details still known are that they're Permian tracks from somewhere in Arizona. There's no more information available. There's 4 plates... 1-pic 1 2-pics 2,3,4 3-pics 5 4-pics 6,7

  3. Hungry boy

    Here is a hungry boy from the Permian that I drew.Not yet sure if I like the way I drew the sand clouds, and I think that using pen for the final product was definitely a mistake, but otherwise it is okay.
  4. Hi guys! This is a continuation of a previous post focusing just on the sponges. These fossils are from the Capitan Formation, which is Permian Period, Guadalupian Epoch, Capitanian Stage. Because these fossils are in the park, no collecting was allowed, and I can't provide additional images. Any confirmations about the identification or suggestions about a more specific identification are welcome. This trilobite is the only fossil out of these images that was actually found in Carlsbad Caverns, right behind the elevator. Can I get more specific on an ID? Cross section of rugose coral? Sponge? Bryozoan. Acanthocladia? Bryozoan? Crinoid.
  5. "Walchia piniformis"

    From the album Plants

    "Walchia piniformis" Early Permian Odernheim a. Glan Germany I'm not sure about that name. There are a lot of similar looking plants that can be found there.
  6. I've been poking around in some Wellington fm micro matrix, permian age, Jackson Co, OK & thought I found a small worn spiral shell, so I put it with the other items I had pulled out. Later, when looking at the items closer, I realized it wasn't a shell & that I had some slightly crappy matrix... literally. A small coprolite 6 mm in length by 4 mm wide & containing what I think are fish scales. So now I'm digging through the matrix again to see if there is any more. The pics are with a dino lite with no photo stacking software, so please bear with them. This is the one thing I never even considerd that I might find in micro matrix.

  9. Hi guys! I don't post here often, but I'm a PhD student in geology, currently working on tropical Paleogene palynology. I'm taking an unrelated class on the Permian Basin and I am working on identifying some of the fossils our class saw in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. I'm not a sponge expert, and I was hoping someone on the forum might be able to confirm or correct my identifications. I might make a follow-up post on the non-sponge fossils we saw on the trip. A bit of background, these pictures were taken in the field with a metric scale, the scale has been cropped out of the pictures and a 5 mm scale bar is added. No fossil collecting was allowed on this trip so I won't be able to provide additional images. The fossils are from the Capitan Formation, which is Permian Period, Guadalupian Epoch, Capitanian Stage. The global stage name is actually named after the nearby El Capitan peak. Amblysiphonella? Archaeolithoporella?
  10. Shell, seed or...?

    "digging" around in some micro matrix from the Wellington fm out of Jackson Co, Oklahoma (Permian age) & found this. Not sure if it's a shell, seed or alien life form. The shell or life form is what I'm hoping (they'll be keepers).. the seed.. probably not so much. Found all sorts of Xenacanthus shark teeth bits along with a few tiny whole ones. But this thing is different. It was sticking out of a bit of matrix that I had to break apart, so I'm hoping it's old & not just some fluke. Only 3 mm in size (ruler marks are in mm), it seems pretty ornamental. Anyhoo, without further delay, the pics.
  11. Medullosa leuckartii

    The following classification scheme was adopted: Anderson, J.M., Anderson, H.M., and Cleal, C.J. (2007), Brief history of the gymnosperms: classification, biodiversity, phytogeography and ecology, Strelitzia 20, South African National Biodiversity Institute, Pretoria (LINK).
  12. I can't find any pictures that focus on Edaphosaurus claws, and I can't zoom in enough on pictures to get a clear visual of any claws, so I can't see any differences between Dimetrodon and Edaphosaurus claws are. They're both really small compared to the bodies, so it's hard to see from full body/skeleton pictures, and they wouldn't be from enough angles to be sure. Someone who has dealt with lots of them, including on articulated specimens, has said that they're almost the same, and as far as he knows, but isn't 100% sure about it, the biggest difference, the only one he is aware of, is that Dimetrodon claws are curved on the bottom, like raptor/general theropod claws, while Edaphosaurus claws, equally sharp, are mostly flat on the bottom, like spino toe claws. Is that the case? Does anyone happen to know?
  13. Gorgonops fossils

    Has anyone ever come across a gorgonops fossil? Just out of curiosity I did a search, and got ZERO results for fossils for sale. Even super rare animal fossils come up with a result or two from something having been sold at some point in the past, or even from questioned fossils, but nothing, nadda, zilch! Lots of replicas, though.
  14. Any Ideas what part of the creature these bean shaped bones are from ? Is it from the spine (intercentrum)? They are about 2 to 3mm in size. I was hoping to get the specific name of the bones like Atlas vertebrae. If if you know your Permian material I have a thread in the members collections that I have very little knowledge of and would love some help. Thank for looking . Cheers Bobby
  15. Permian Ryan formation

    Does anyone know what the Ryan formation is? Is it a terrestrial site, or aquatic? What vertebrates are found there?
  16. These are the most numerous former inhabitants(that can be seen with naked eye) in an area I'm studying. Cottonwood Fm, lower Permian, Flint Hills Kansas. There's an odd feature at the anterior end that may help ID it. Would these indicate shallow water environment?

    Hi, i'd like to show you pieces i brang back from the Permian of Lodève, South of France. I believe those are Lebachiae, but i'd like to know if you agree. Thanks, Sophie.

  25. Clermont l'Hérault

    Hi everybody, today is a sunny day here and all the past week was sunny. I was in holidays on the boarders of the lake Salagou, which means in occitan (spoken in the south of France) salted taste. This lake is artificial and represent a good reserve of water for the cultures and for the fight against fires. It's soil is from the Permian and composed of red ruffes : clays very rich in oxides of iron.
