  7. Some of my collection

    Hello gang, As promised this is where I will share specimens from my personal collection, my grandfather's collection, and the collection that was donated to the university I work for. The latter is interesting as it is literally boxes of rock and fossils, with no information and my university does not have a geology or paleontology department. I'll be updating it every so often. Enjoy! NOTE: Some of the donated items have old school "labels" on them. If you see initials or such that you recognize, please PM me, as I am doing my best to properly catalog them properly as part of my job!
  8. Recently I aquired this Carcharodon tooth from Sacaco, Peru whose serrate conditions seems a bit peculiar to me. I can't really decide whether or not this tooth is from a late-stage hubbelli or an early carcharias. The serrations seem to wear/taper off just short of the tip on one side and abruptly end near it on another, and some (although not all) of the serrations appears to be angled in a way, although I suspect some may be due to wear. My thoughts on the serrations keep seesawing in my head. Would this tooth better represent a late-stage hubbelli or a carcharias? Thanks for any and all answers. Lingual
  9. A new paper is available online: Lambert, Olivier; Bianucci, Giovanni; Salas-Gismondi, Rodolfo; Di Celma, Claudio; Steurbaut, Etienne; Urbina, Mario; de Muizon, Christian, 2019. An amphibious whale from the Middle Eocene of Peru reveals early South Pacific dispersal of quadrupedal cetaceans. Current Biology doi:10.1016/j.cub.2019.02.050. The discovery of Peregocetus in the Pisco Basin of Peru constitutes the first record of a quadrupedal cetacean from the eastern Pacific Ocean, showing that quadrupedal cetaceans inhabited part of the Pacific Ocean. Literally, the basilosaurid Supayacetus and the early mysticete Mystacodon have illuminated early cetacean evolution in the Pacific Ocean, and Peregocetus extends the range of non-pelagicete cetaceans to the eastern Pacific realm, showing that terrestrially suited quadrupedal cetaceans spread quickly throughout the New World during the Eocene.
  10. Possible bird skull?

    Hello everyone, this is my first thread on this forum. I found this community while doing some research about a possible bird skull fossil. The piece was found by me in the Sea of Lima, Peru, in the 2018 summer. I can take more pictures if needed. I see myself a peack and some eyes sockets ..
  11. Hello! I am fairly sure this specimen is Prolylleceras sp. This piece came from Peru - My questions: 1. Do you agree with the identification? 2. WHAT IS THE TAXONOMY? I see NO information for this; I see examples for SALE - but NOTHING on taxonomy. Looked and searched in all the "normal" databases - nothing. I am wondering if there is possibly another Genus name? Thanks!
  12. Megalodon skeleton from Peru

  13. GW or hubbelli?

    I saw this for sale online, not incredibly pricey. It is labeled great white, but the serrations look to go away towards the top, could this be a hubbelli? I’m looking for a hubbelli for a reasonable price, so I’m hoping for a yes but keeping hopes low. It’s Peruvian, so probably piasco formation of memory serves(not sure if I spelled that right) Im not very familiar with them so I’m asking you smart people. I’m going to tag @sagacious because I know he knows these well. Thanks for any responses!

  15. Trigonia-like bivalve Peru

    Hi I recently obtained this specimen at a street market in Peru. Its triangular 3cm x 2cm x1cm. Looks Trigonia-like. Any ideas on id and age? Regards Dennis

    Hi I recently obtained this specimen at a street market in Peru. Its 5cm x 4cm. Looks scallop or oyster like. Any ideas on id and age? Regards Dennis
  17. Carcharodon hubbelli

    Recently, I've taken an interest in transitional shark teeth. I found this the other day listed as Carcharodon hubbelli from Peru. I'm very interested if the ID is correct. It is certainly closer to C. carcharias than I./C. hastalis, but hubbelli does seem plausible to me. Just want to be sure before I buy it.

  19. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. I estimate I spent no more than $430 in total for this small collection. Anyone else out there with extreme budget rare finds especially shark teeth (or from generally exotic locations), feel free to share and I'd love to see! In order of pictures: 1) Two megs and a hemi from Isabella, Puerto Rico 2) meg from Hawaii (Restored) 3) great white from Japan 4) meg from Morocco 5) meg from Cuba (unfortunately stuck on a wood plate but still a lovely display piece) 6) meg from the Phillipines 7) cubutensis from Peru 8) 2 Makos from Mexico 9 & 10) Heavily and horribly restored 5.9 inch Chilean meg (funny story with this one had an even worse restoration on it with made it look no different from a replica, was suspicious and bought it and when attempting a horrible derestoration process and a few slight touch ups of my own a large chilean meg was hiding under the mess, still needs a tad bit of work but I still love I was able to snag a large one cheap in this day and age ) @WhodamanHD Here we go uploaded !
  20. New Eocene mysticete

    A new fossil mysticete paper is available online: Olivier Lambert; Manuel Martínez-Cáceres; Giovanni Bianucci; Claudio Di Celma; Rodolfo Salas-Gismondi; Etienne Steurbaut; Mario Urbina; Christian de Muizon (2017). "Earliest Mysticete from the Late Eocene of Peru Sheds New Light on the Origin of Baleen Whales". Current Biology. in press. doi:10.1016/j.cub.2017.04.026. As the second Eocene mysticete based on complete remains, Mystacodon muddies the picture of early mysticete evolution because Llanocetus is more derived than other toothed mysticetes in having wide gaps between posterior cheek teeth, unlike Mystacodon. Therefore, it is clear that the cranial bauplan of Eocene mysticetes is more complex than previously thought and that more work remains to elucidate mysticete evolution in the Eocene (no bonafide odontocetes have yet been described from the Eocene).
  21. Ammonites in the High Andes of Peru

    During the same years (1997-2000) and in the same region of the High Andes of Peru, I discovered the fossil fern and the fossil coral presented in my two other topics: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/72054-fossil-fern-in-the-high-andes-of-peru/#comment-758432 http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/72061-coral-fossil-of-the-high-andes-of-peru/#comment-758464 , I took this picture (slide poorly scanned, sorry) of ammonites in the stone wall of San Pedro de Parish, an old little abandonned church of the beginning of the Hispanic Colony, on the shore of Lake Junin (or Chinchaycocha, en quechua), altitude 4125m. What do you think about it, especially in relation with the branching coral ? Thanks
  22. Coral fossil of the High Andes of Peru

    Hi! In the same (calcareous) region of Lake Junin (or Lake Chinchaycocha, in quechua), in the High Central Andes of Peru, where I was investigating Maca (Lepidium meyenii Walpers) I found in tne 1990's this nice coral fossil specimen at the altitude of 4200/4300m. Measure below in cm. What do you think about it ? Thank you in advance ! Warmfully Pierre-Olivier Combelles Institut Andin d'Etudes Ehnobiologiques (France)
  23. Fossil fern in the High Andes of Peru

    Hi! French naturalist & ethnobiologist, I discovered this fossil fern in the 1990's when surveying the puna investigating Maca (Lepidium meyenii Walpers) and collecting actual Lepidium sp. (Brassicaceae) at the altitude of 4250 m, some km eastwards of Lake Junin, in the High Andes of Peru. The specimen was broken into two pieces, on the ground of the puna, some meters from each other. Lenght: 11 cm. Wide: 7 cm. As I am not paleobiologist unfortunately, please would you help me to identify it ? Carboniferous/Early Carboniferous ? Adiantites (lindseaeformis?) ? Esphenopteris ? I have found other fossils (there are a lot in this calcareous region, you can see on the 2nd picture ) and I shall post them next time. Many thanks in advance. All the best.
