  1. Would anyone be interested in sending me copies of these papers: Paul E. Morse; Stephen G.B. Chester; Doug M. Boyer; Thierry Smith; Richard Smith; Paul Gigase; Jonathan I. Bloch (2019). New fossils, systematics, and biogeography of the oldest known crown primate Teilhardina from the earliest Eocene of Asia, Europe, and North America. Journal of Human Evolution 128: 103-131. doi:10.1016/j.jhevol.2018.08.005. Ning Li, Hui Dai, Chao Tan, Xufeng Hu, Zhaoying Wei, Yu Lin, Guangbiao Wei, Deliang Li, Li Meng, Baoqiao Hao, Hailu You & Guangzhao Peng (2019) A neornithischian dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic Xintiangou Formation of Yunyang, Chongqing, China: the earliest record in Asia, Historical Biology, DOI: 10.1080/08912963.2019.1679129
  2. Ok, maybe not, but this hominoid swamp dweller could not climb trees or walk upright. Tough to place on the tree of life. https://www.newsweek.com/strange-swamp-dwelling-prehistoric-ape-that-couldnt-walk-two-legs-climb-trees-poses-evolutionary-1478852
  3. I was going to post this in the fossil of the month for July, until I looked at the date it was collected...mid-June. My, how time flies. Last Spring I found a nice Eocene mammal tooth site west of home. In a few hours I collected a few teeth and made a note to return soon. I did so in June and spent another few hours there (as well as exploring other nearby sites). I collected about 20 complete isolated mammal teeth and two jaws. Here is the better of the two. I am pretty tickled with not only this specimen, but this site as well. It will be a lot of fun to keep going back to. That is my fingerprint for scale. The front of the jaw is facing left; the missing jaw joint is on the right. Notice that the first tooth on the left (third premolar) is taller than the others, and that the third molar (right-most tooth) is quite long. As far as I know, these make it a primate. Not a monkey, mind you, but something along the lines of more primitive primates, such as tarsiers. (Then again, the current classification of these things is quite complicated and it may not be a primate at all). There was quite a collection of these things and similar beasts here during the Eocene, mostly quite small and only known from teeth and jaws. so in FOTM format: Date of Discovery... 15 June 2019 Scientific and/or Common Name... Primate Geologic Age or Geologic Formation... Wind River Fm., early Eocene State, Province, or Region Found... Wyoming Photos of Find (Please limit to 4 clear, cropped, and well-lit images.) see below. (If prepped, before and after photos are required, please.)
  4. Oldest Primate Fossil

  5. I don't read a lot about hominid fossils but I try to keep up with general knowledge of recent finds and discussions. Sometimes, the various science magazines will publish a special issue on the subject and I try to pick up a copy. The September issue of Natural History is devoted to human origins with a few articles with even one on the ancient primates of the Paleocene and Eocene along with a reprinted column by the late Stephen J. Gould. I haven't read it yet but leafed through it (nice artwork and fossil photos in it). I had seen it that month at a local Barnes & Noble but the last copy was all bent-up like an accordion. I looked for it at another store but couldn't find it. I went back to pick up the beat-up one I had seen but it was gone. After hunting around the magazine website, I found that back issues were available so I mailed away for it ($7 including shipping). Ten days later, it arrived. In case anyone else is interested, here's the link to page with the back issue address - just scroll down to it: http://www.naturalhistorymag.com/contact.html
  6. Hi guys, I was wondering if any of you could help me ID this fossil. I have done some research into it and know it is from some sort of primate, The seller doesn't know much about it except that he found it at a curio shop on the Texas Oklahoma border in the early 1960's. Any help would be much appreciated. I have listed some pictures below to help with the process. Thanks, Ryan

  9. ID help on ?mammal? Teeth?

    Hey all, here are four different examples of what I believe to be teeth from the same species. To me they appear to be herbivore grinding teeth or omnivore molars. Any ideas? thanks!!
