  1. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming Water bird tracks (possibly sandpipers or plovers) Presbyorniformipes feduccii Vernal, Utah Bird feather Aves indet. Southwest Wyoming Crane flies & Mosquitoes Pronophlebia rediviva & Culex sp. Parachute Creek Member; Douglas Pass, Colorado
  2. The winner of the April 2018 IPFOTM goes to...the Euproops Xiphosuran from the Late Carboniferous of Piesberg quarry, near Osnabrück, Germany! Congrats to @paleoflor!
  3. Is this a Plant Fossil?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'm a rock collector/hunter and found this interesting sandstone rock on the beach on the Gulf Coast of Florida. At first I thought the rock was engraved with the letter "L", but after further examination it appears to be impressions in the rock. What I thought was real cool is on the top of the "L" there is hair or fibers sticking out of it. Can anyone please help me identify this specimen???? Thanks so much.
  4. I found this while digging in my yard, early this morning. Can't say how long it could have possibly been there, I must note the previous owners did have an abundance of river rock brought in for decoration over a decade ago. The piece itself was about 15 inches down. It looked cool on the surface but when I took my loupe to it I found some interesting markings. I don't know if I'm looking at perhaps crinoid stems, plant parts, or an interesting geologic concretion? Thank you for your help.
  5. Fern? (Update: Triarthrus beckii)

    Found this on a Lake Champlain beach, looks like a fern but any info would be great!
  6. Horn coral or calamite?

    I found these two fossils at my camp in munising, Michigan thinking that they were horn coral fossils. But now I am having doubts and am thinking they might be calamite fossils (or some sort of plant fossil).
  7. No opinion

    Hi everybody! Who can recognize what's that? Carboniferous, probably plant.
  8. Upper Devonian of NY

    Here are just a few of the fossils I find in the Upper Devonian of New York State. The site I found these specimens at is unpublished and unknown to collectors. Some of the rare things I have found - fish skull, phyllocarid, branchiopods, and perfectly preserved cephalopods. The large orthocone is very rare in this formation and I know of only one that was found according to old publications on this unit. I have found fossil logs several feet long that had to stay in the field. I have to pack food, water, tools, and more a 2-3 miles to the location so I'm limited as to how much I can carry back to my truck. Thanks
  9. Strange stone

    Hi i am new here Registred because found this stone With some strange stone attached to it It has cymetrical biological shape I will apriciate if some one can commet on what it is Regards
  10. I’ve been running into some cool fossils at my study site in southeastern Ohio recently and thought I’d share some photos. This is deep in the hills of southeastern Ohio and most fossils I’ve seen in the area are weathered sandstone casts/impressions of Lepidodendron/Sigillaria trunks/bark in stream beds. Interestingly, these fossils seem to be clustered in 20-50 meter stream stretches. Pictures below are from one such stream stretch in the lower lying part of the ravine where some chert and limestone start showing up with the sandstone. I would love any additional information folks can provide on these rocks as many are too worn/indistinct. Also, does chert/flint ever contain fossils? The last picture is of a big chunk of chert (I think) that looked like petrified wood sort of to me. I will get around to posting some other/better ones from this area later! image2 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image3 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image4 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image5 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image6 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr image1 by Andrew Hoffman, on Flickr
  11. Unknown from Port Mulgrave

    Hi, We found this at Port Mulgrave today and are not sure what this is? Can anyone help? Sorry if this is obvious but we are new to fossils and do not have a lot of experience.
  12. Ancient Sea plant?

    This looks like a fossil, but I'm not sure. Need your expertise to identify.
  13. ID please on a seed ?

    I any ideas on this set of small fossil from Torres Vedras, Portugal. They on a website for sale Thank you cheers Bobby
  14. I keep hearing about Penn/Miss sites near the GA/AL border, and seeing that my collection is severely lacking, I am dying to find a formation exposure that isn't on the opposite end of the globe from where I am. I found some hope of finding a place with this scholarly article on NW GA (though it's an article that's older than my grandparents): https://epd.georgia.gov/sites/epd.georgia.gov/files/related_files/site_page/B-62.pdf 2 formations stuck out from what I could make of it from my first quick skim: • Vandever Formation • Rockcastle Formation These two appear to produce some pretty nice Penn. flora. Would love to go and hunt these formations for their treasures! Locations and availability information? Thanks in advance!
  15. ice age?

    Found in an ancestral Mississippi river channel deposit, Deposit is around 50,000 years old. Specimen is completely mineralized. I don't see much material like this, and any thing I offer would be a total guess. Opinions?

  17. Fungi, Algae, Chert?

    Fungi, Algae, Chert? Location: SE Portage County, Central Wisconsin, USA. Geology: South Western advance of Green Bay Glacial Lobe. Former Glacial Lake Oshkosh. Niagara Escarpment Debris. My land. Ordovician onward. Size: 5 cm by 7.25 cm by 4 cm. Needing lots of help on this one. Different than most of my finds. Have been told it could be fungi, algae or just a rock. Texture is waxy in parts with crystals in others. Looks like a mushroom, but looks can always deceive. Comments appreciated on what it might be and era. Thank you. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4783/40769961972_1401c223fe_z.jpg[/img]f1[/url] rul 1 rul 2 rul 2 rul 2 rul 4 rul 4 rul 4 rul 4 schroom 1 schroom 1 schroom 1 by Fernwood Acres, on Flickr schroom 5 schroom 6 rul 3
  18. Mystery fossil from N. Sulphur River

    After a nice day on the North Sulphur River, one of the things I found was this unusual fossil. Any ideas on what it is?
  19. I need an ID on this fossil

    I found this near a pond in Ohio. I have no clue what it is except for the fact that it is a fossil, any information will be helpful!
  20. Plant fossils in flint?

    These were found in Bexar County, TX. They look like plants to me, but wanted to confirm.
  21. Cold but sunny today,few field pictures to start
  22. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found this one, which looks like tree bark with some particular marks. I have found several well preserved fossils at the same quarry but I will upload the pictures later. I have been looking for information about this one in particular but I haven't found out what type of tree it is, has anybody seen this before? Thank you very much!
  23. Well, the Groundhogs have spoken, - 6 more weeks of Winter are in store for North America. Not the best of hunting weather, but we do have some hardcore folks who go out, no matter the temperatures or ground/water conditions! I salute all of you who do go out, and find amazing things in the winter. For those of you who have finished prep in a nice warm lab, or hunted for microfossils by the roaring fire, it is time to post up whatever you have found or completed prepping. Read the rules carefully, and post away! ************************************************************* Remember...PLEASE carefully read all of the rules below, ... make sure you include all the required information, in the requested format, and submit your fossil! If you have a question about a possible entry, please send me a PM. Please pay special attention to Rule #5: Before and After Preparation photos must be submitted for Prepped specimens not found during the Month of the Contest. In addition to keeping the contest fair, this new qualification will encourage better documentation of our spectacular past finds. Best of success to all, and good hunting! Entries will be taken until midnight on FEBRUARY 28th. Please let us know if you have any questions, and thanks for sharing more of your fossils and research this month. To view the Winning Fossils from past contests visit the Find Of The Month Winner's Gallery. *********************************** Rules for The Fossil Forum's Vertebrate and Invertebrate/Plant Find of the Month Contests 1. You find a great Vertebrate Fossil or Invertebrate/Plant Fossil! Only fossils found by you. NO PURCHASED FOSSILS. 2. Post your entry in the Find of the Month topic. Use a separate post for each entry. (Only two entries per contest category.) 3. Your Fossil must have been found during the Month of the Contest, or most of the significant Preparation of your Fossil must have been completed during the Month of the Contest. 4. You must include the Date of your Discovery (when found in the contest month); or the Date of Preparation Completion and Discovery date (if not found in the contest month). 5. Before and After Preparation photos must be submitted for prepped specimens not found during the Month of the Contest. 6. You must include the common or scientific name. 7. You must include the Geologic Age or Geologic Formation where the Fossil was found. 8. You must include the State, Province, or region where the Fossil was found. 9. Play fair and honest. No bought fossils. No false claims. Shortly after the end of the Month, separate Polls will be created for the Vertebrate and Invertebrate/Plant Find of the Month. In addition to the fun of a contest, we also want to learn more about the fossils. So, only entries posted with a CLEAR photo and that meet the other guidelines will be placed into the Poll. *******Please use the following format for the required information:******* Date of discovery Scientific or Common name Geologic Age or Geologic Formation State, Province, or Region found Photos (if prepped, before and after photos, please.) Photos of the winning specimens may be posted to TFF's Facebook page. Once the Contest Submission period has ended, after all the votes are tallied, and the Polls for both categories are closed, we will know the two winning Finds of the Month for FEBRUARY 2018 ! Now, go find your fossil, do your research, and make an entry! Good luck!
  24. Did I find a plant fossil?

    Hi, I just thought I would ask others if this looks like a plant stalk. I thought it looked kind of like a palmetto trunk (but much smaller). Won't hurt my feelings if you think its a rock, but the repetitive pattern just made me want to ask - maybe others have seen similar specimens? It is very dense and polished from ocean/sand tumbling. (I didn't include a picture of the opposite side because it was crushed/broken and had no valuable detail) Thanks,
