  1. Odd plate with crinoid.

    This one has a decent sized crinoid on one side of the rock, but the other has this weird plate. Is it just a different type of rock within the matrix, or part of something else? Probably Michigan/Indiana. (6/8)
  2. Triassic mystery bone

    Hi all! I've found this strange bone (unprepared yet) in triassic aged sandstone from the anisian. In the same location there have been many shark, fish, and Marine reptile species reported. I can't seem to I'd what part of the body this bone represent, not even talking about the species... The bumps on the surface are half spheres, some of them protruding half way without squere encourage, I think they can be teeth or some kind of dermal plate. So, does anybody care to share their thoughts on the matter?
  3. I was scouring over a plate I recently collected and noticed this "face-like" feature. Any ideas? Sorry couldn't get extreme close up as the iPhone camera isn't great for that.
  4. Can use some help with a few IDs

    I've been trying to ID all the little fossils on this plate besides the Mioplosus. So far I see two mollusks, a tiny clam, a possible burrow, and a shrimp. Can someone help me figure out if my observations are correct? Second picture is a close up of the shrimp.
  5. Bolaspidella housensis?

    Hello TFF. I have this little 3'' mortality plate here from wheeler shale. I think these are bollaspidella housensis but I'm not 100% sure....any help would be greatly appreciated!
  6. North Sulphur River ID

    Can anyone help me ID this find? I found it in the North Sulphur River in March of this year. I was guessing some sort of scute or plate? Maybe skin? Thanks!
  7. I helped one of my friends make a hanger for his huge Ohio hash plate. I guestimate it weights 15 pounds. I learned this technique from Harry Pristis, and only slightly modified it from what he posted. I used two steel rods from Lowes, and two turnbuckles from Home Depot. The materials cost was about $10. I used a wire bending jig to create two W-shaped "hangers" as shown. This jig was one like this; costs about $5. I bent the end of the hangers over to hook onto the plate. I used two turnbuckles to attach the rods together- and screwed them tight. I probably could have used wire, but wanted to be sure it would never fall.
  8. Found a few hash plates.

    All found in the same area in NE Oklahoma near a river. Any info would be appreciated since I don't know much about fossils. Is the brown on pic #5 something? I know the basic ones like crinoids and the obvious brachiopod or gastropod. Or any info on polishing up some of the smaller chunks? I seen a couple of posts about brass brushes. (I didn't want to create multiple posts to the ID and Preparation forums, just let me know if I should.) Sorry about the pics that are blurred. And that's not all of them. I still have these to go through...
  9. Wow! I found a...?

    A few weeks ago I was on a hunt and picked up a few nice Isaurus sp. teeth, some hemi's and seen some bone frags. I saw this sticking out of the mud at river's edge and figured it was more than just a bone but it was completely covered in mud. My eyes trained for teeth, I put it in a bag and continued on. When I got it home, I ran water over it and the small teeth started to be revealed. I couldn't believe it. I am not an expert by any means, but I assume its a fish mouth plate? From looking online, I don't see where it would be a drum. I have found individual drum and other oval fish teeth, but nothing complete like this or the round shape of these teeth. You can even see the replacement teeth in the bone in the photo where the ruler is horizontal. Two of the photos look the same, but in one, the fossil is laying on the teeth, and the other is a side view, if that helps. I spent the last few days searching online but couldn't find anything that specifically gives light to this. There is a small chip on the bottom in the center where the shade is darker, so it may be missing a small portion in that area (seen in the side view). Thank you for any information!
  10. Diodont dental plates?

    Hi, just joined the forum after browsing some very informative posts. My wife and I found the items pictured on the beach on Oahu, Hawaii. They appear to resemble others' pictures of porcupinefish dental plates. I have found info on similar finds from the Philippines, Australia, and Florida, but nothing from Hawaii. What we are mainly wondering is whether these are fossilized or just hard due to being made of tooth material (we have not found any still attached to a jawbone). Sorry about no coin in the photo for scale, the largest specimen is about 1 inch or 2.5 cm. As we say in Hawaii, Mahalo for any insights!
  11. Help with Dogfish identification

    We just got back from the Denver show, and while we were there we picked up this really nice fish fossil plate from Lebanon. What makes it special is that one of the 3 fish is supposedly a Dogfish. Unfortunately, we didn't get much other information from the dealer, so I'm hoping someone here can help us out with a few questions: 1. Any idea what species this dogfish is, and is this technically a shark or is it a relative of a shark? 2. Any idea what the age would be? Thanks! -Brian
  12. Not sure what this is, looked interesting so I picked it up today on my walk. This is the front and back... Coast nc
  13. Please, Some Help With Small Fossils

    Hi, as a beginner this is a great resource to receive IDs on stuff I would never be able to figure out on my own. The first is a scale of some sort, about an inch long, half inch wide with a notched end, and an enameled middle rising to a slight point near the notched end. The second (have two very similar) is about an inch wide with points on either side, 0.3 inch long with a plate of six long teeth (?) on each side; the opposite side has two big depressions and the leading edge between the points has fine scales (or teeth?) The third (have three, one worn away to a nub) is wedge shaped with a blunt point in front(?), half inch long, less than an inch wide. The top(?) is roughly triangular with a medial crease, the sides flare up in the back. The bottom has a medial ridge, depressions on either side, and thickening to the sides and on either side of the front point. There are four holes/channels visible from the back, and these merge into one opening on the side. There is no enamel, looks like fine bone. The three samples were collected at three different places near the Rappahannock river. The last is the most difficult to describe. From the bottom it looks like a small pecan (an inch long) with one end more pointed than the other; there are hints of black bumps on the sides. The blunt end is flattened on top with small ridges on either side. Two enameled ridges arise together in the middle then join into a single notched ridge which continues to the point. It must be a piece of something else but I don't recognize anything else like it. My cell phone pictures are not great but I appreciate your ideas as to their IDs!
  14. Hi, New member here. Just wanted to see if I could get an official identification of this odd shark/ray tooth that we found at Sharktooth creek in Aliceville, AL. The "guide/owner" said this was some kind of a molar or grinding tooth from a Ray/Shark hybrid. Can anyone help add a little more clarification. Thanks
