  1. "The oldest crocodilian eggs known to science have been discovered in the cliffs of western Portugal." Article HERE. Research paper HERE. Enjoy.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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

  9. 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. .

  12. 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
  13. 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.

  16. Hi everyone! I am currently enjoying some very pleasant holidays in the Vale do Lobo, near Faro in Portugal. My family and I were wondering what some good fossil locations nearby were; Filipe ( @Vieira ), has recommended the beach between Albufeira and Lagos, called the "Formação dos Olhos de Ãgua". Unfortunately he has never gone there before, and therefore did not know everything about the location. What he knew about the location was this: the finds are from the Miocene period and include: shark teeth, marine mammal bones and sea urchins. So does anyone know more information about the site, like what spots are the best, what are the better techniques (e.g.: sieving, looking near the water or more in the dunes/cliffs, etc) and also what you found. So if any of you have ever gone there, please give me any info/tips you have. And pictures would be great too! Also, if you know any other cool locations nearby, please tell me! Best regards and nice holidays to all of you, Max
  17. Hello all dear members of this fantastic forum. While i'am waiting for my Secret Santa, i want to propose some trade. I have a echinoid to trade. It's found last weekend and have a little flaw in a corner... I have schizasters sp. to trade too. Echinolampas Hemisphaericus Miocene - Burdigalian (16-23) Formation: Calcarenitos e margas de Foz da Fonte e Penedo Sul Location: Sesimbra - Portugal Schizaster sp. Best regards Filipe
