  1. Muito obrigado

    GSAILL raison d' etre for this post : -classic locality -an in-depth analysis -I might be wrong,but for those who collect at/near/in this area,there's a lot of useful information in this thesis VERY NICE WHEELER DIAGRAM
  2. Iberian Trilobites Id request

    This one is from Arouca, Portugal and it seems an Harpidae. Someone knows the correct ID, please? Thanks in advance, Miguel
  3. Theropod tooth (0,5 cm)

  4. Portugal fossils

    some of the fossils i find within the lusitan Basin and other deposits. hope you enjoy
  5. Pliosaurus tooth?

    Hello, I found this tooth in a jurassic formation (tithonian) in Torres Vedras - Portugal. It's the first time I found a tooth like this. I don't know if it's croc or maybe pliosaurus?

  8. Fossils found in Algarve, Portugal

    Hello everyone! I'm new here so please forgive me for making any mistakes or for not thoroughly reading through other topics/sections before posting here. I went to Portugal with my family almost 3 years ago and came across a few interesting sea shells on top of the cliff leading down to the beach. I'm always intrigued and fascinated by things which have a lot of age or have a story to tell. Can anyone say or estimate how old some of these shells/fossils are? Some look a lot older than others. Edit : So it only seems to allow me to upload up to 3.95MB. One image alone is 3.5MB. Will post again with the other pictures.

  10. Oldest Croc Eggs Discovered in Portugal

    "The oldest crocodilian eggs known to science have been discovered in the cliffs of western Portugal." Article HERE. Research paper HERE. Enjoy.
  11. Dear microfossil hunting colleagues, in a sq-inch on the seafloor and the water column above dozens or thousands of microorganisms usually live and lived. In fossil rocks and samples microfossils if present do not come alone but as an assemblage of different species and many specimens. These assemblages represent the environment in which the specimens lived. Besides of the micro-organisms living on the sea-ground there maybe many planktonic ones living in the water column above. When they die, their shell/remnants sink to the seafloor and intermingle with the remnants of those, who lived on the bottom. Please find in the image an example of my work on a Miocene sample from Quelfes, Portugal. It is just a start as many more species can be found in this material. Nonetheless is already tells the story of a nearshore Miocene and nutrient rich environment. I strongly recommend you to work on your samples likewise. WORK ON THE ASSEMBLAGE ! It is the true fossil record. Picking just the big, nice looking specimens is a man-made fabricate, which gives a misleading idea about, what is really there. Respect nature as it is and appears. Get a microcell with 10 or more holes and put the assemblage sorted by morphology in it. Then you have a true picture of the assemblage, environment, and geological time of the material. Have fun with your assemblages ! Foram-Mike
  12. Occasionally we see dinosaur material from Portugal for sale, mostly theropod teeth, but I post this because the dinosaurs of the Lourinhã Group are very interesting to those of us that are familiar with the Morrison Formation. From an abstract: The Lourinhã and Alcobaça formations (in Portugal), Morrison Formation (in North America) an Tendaguru Beds (in Tanzania) can be compared. These three Late Jurassic areas, dated as Kimmeridgian to Tithonian are similar paleoenvironmentally and faunally. Four dinosaur genera are shared between Portugal and the Morrison (Allosaurus, Torvosaurus, Ceratosaurus and Apatosaurus), as well as all non-avian dinosaur families. Late Jurassic Map Portugal has a high diversity of dinosaurs. The Lourinhã Formation is the most notable unit of the group not only noted for teeth & bones but eggs and trackways. The Alcobaça Formation is also included in the group. Here is a geologic look at westcentral Portugal. The coastline is absolutly beautiful and a challenge to collect. Teeth, tracks and bones are typically found in the boulders making extraction a nightmare which I'll share with you. Lourhina Fm.pdf

  17. My specimens of this species are 2-3mm in diameter, and the thickness in the center is about 2/3 of the diameter. Thickness on the edge goes down to about 0.1mm. .

  20. Megalodon or Chubutensis

    I found this tooth and I'm with some doubts in this identification. My guess goes to Chubutensis but i'am not certain. Tooth "in situ": Removed in matrix: After preparation: Thanks Filipe
  21. Hello dear fossil-hunters! So here is the report that a few of you have been waiting for: my trip to the Formação dos Olhos de Ãgua! So after a nice breakfast in the sun, we took the car from Vale do Lobo to Albufeira, another coastal city in the Algarve of Portugal. After just a bit of searching, we found a good parking spot for our car. We walked down towards the beach, Praia de Oura, and were amazed by the magnificent view.
