  1. Ornithocheirid pterosaur

    From the album Albian vertebrates of Ukraine

    Tiny pterosaur tooth from Kanev Albian. This tooth is strongly labio-lingually compressed, has no carinae and has a developed pulpar cavity, typical pterosaur tooth characteristics. Scalebar 5 mm.

  3. Identifying a Pterosaur claw?

    Hi, This one has me stumped with the id, is this a Pterosaur claw or something else like a possible theropod claw? It is from the kem kem and is 2cm long. Since i am clueless when it comes to identifying claws from different animals, which diagnostic features can help determine if it is pterosaur or not. Thanks.
  4. Pterosaur bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a kinda funny combination out of a fish bone and a very rare pterosaur bone. The fish bone is the bigger one (5 cm long) and is lying on the top of the pterosaur bone. The piece comes from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic). As these are marine deposits you can imagine how rare the pterosaur bone is Some very bad detailed pictures: (sorry for the bad quality but my camera is not good enough)
  5. Quetzalcoatlus metatarsal?

    Possibly quetzalcoatlus metatarsal? The other one is supposed to be the part of the beak, close to the tip. Sadly these are the only pictures available. Any info or thoughts are greatly appreciated.
  6. Must be a full moon out there Seller is offering this pterosaur skull and claw without any additional information other than saying it had no teeth . Tired emailing him no response as of yet. Looks like 3 wing bones of a Pterosaur from the Kansas chalk. Very nice Edit: seller responded saying it's from Texas and assures me there is an intact skull? A 2" Daspletosaurus offered without any locality. Impossible to distinguish between different tyrannosaurids and without locality who knows what it is. Triceratops vertebra from the Hell Creek being offered. Its not ceratopsian but from an Edmontosaurus which are caudals more rectangular, box shaped. Ceratopsian are oval. A rare Pachycephalosaurus claw being offered. Wow thought yesterday's Tyranno tooth was an awful resto job only to be surpassed by this one. Looks like most of the claw has been restored to something not Pachy. Avoid.... A Giganotosaurus tooth from Argentina is being offered for sale, wow. I know a lot of collectors will want to jump on to this tooth. Caution for a number of reasons. First it was illegal exported, collected in 2014. Second if you need one is that the seller has no locality information and because of that its difficult to determine what Dinosaur its from. Multiple Carcharodontosaurids are present in Argentina. Although the tooth has some appearance of a Carch without additional photos hard to conclusively say its one.
  7. Pterosaur tooth form Liaoning ?

    Hello would this be a Pterosaur tooth form Liaoning and any idea on the circular fossil in the matrix has well ?
  8. Vertebra Queensland

    Looking through my usual matrix I came across this partial vertebra that has me stumped. Both sections were sitting together in the matrix so assume they are part of the same vertebra. Definitely not fish so some type of reptile ? Hopping the process end is diagnostic enough to determine species. Second piece in post below Mike
  9. Pterosaur cervical vertebra?

    Hi, just wondering if this is a pterosaur cervical vertebra (listed as such) since i can't find any similar specimens or references. It is from Morocco (Kem Kem Basin) and is 6.2cm (just under 2 and a half inches).
  10. I was just prepping out a very small piece of bone I found down on the Isle of Wight a few months ago. It ended up looking very different from what I expected, so was hoping someone may be able to suggest what it could belong to. From my very limited experience it looks almost bird like, so was wondering if it could be pterosaur, which is found in this location. Early Cretaceous. Chilton chine. Isle of Wight. ..... the bone is hollow with relatively thin walls. Just over 1cm long. I’ve tried to get clear photos but they didn’t turn out too well so I’ve had to compensate by posting too many instead.
  11. This fossil comes from the Phosphate Mines of Kourigba, Morocco. The fossil is 10cm and the matrix is 14 x 11cm overall. Is it possible to identify this fossil?.
  12. Fully rooted pterosaur tooth?!!!

    Hi all. I saw this online and I was amazed. The fossil is sold as a pterosaur tooth from Kem Kem. Size: 49 x 8 mm This species of pterosaurs could reach a wingspan of up to 6 meters ! » Could it really be a fully rooted pterosaur tooth? For me it’s really big for a pterosaur. What do you think? Never saw a fully rooted one. Rare? Do you think it could be a fake? Regards.

  15. Pterosaur Tooth

    Hi all, This is my 2,5cm pterosaur tooth that I got for Christmas. I do not doubt that it is from a pterosaur, but I don’t know any information. The previous owner said it is from Africa. I really would like to know the specie,could anyone help me? Thanks for the help.Tell me if you need more pictures.
  16. Pterosaur teeth

    Hi guys, The 4 teeth below are sold to me as Siroccopteryx moroccensis but I know species ID from Kem Kem material is really hard. The left and right tooth are most definitely pterosaur sp tooth but are the two in the middle pterosaur tooth as well? (curved/ straight)
  17. Kem Kem pterosaur tooth?

    Hi all, This little tooth from the Kem Kem beds was sold to me at a low price. The seller told me it was a pterosaur tooth. Is this correct? If so, is it possible to tell the species? (I know that Kem Kem species ID is incredibly hard, so I do expect a 'no' on this... BUT, you never know!) I can always make more pictures if needed. Thanks in advance for your answers! Max
  18. The attached paper describes a diverse pterosaur assemblage from the late Maastrichtian of Morocco that includes not only Azhdarchidae but the youngest known Pteranodontidae and Nyctosauridae. The fossils described come from the upper Maastrichtian phosphates of the Ouled Abdoun Basin, in northern Morocco http://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.2001663
  19. Rare Find For NSR!

    I had a good hunt at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a nice variety and possibly the first Pterosaur limb bone ever found at NSR.
  20. Pterosaur or Enantiornithine coracoids?

    Dear Guys, I have found three coracoid bones in flintstone that are about 0,5 cm length and made the cavities of them by needle. There are two versions about these fossil ID in my opinion- enantiornithine bird or pterosaur (pterosaur is more possible because the lower wider part of bones is not very wide as in almost all birds and the pterosaur, e.g. ornithocheiridae coracoid shape is very similar!). If these are pterosaur coracoid bones they should belong to small species (maybe rhamphorhynchoids), if small bird bones- they should be very primitive, probably early Cretaceous and I do not know any birds with this shape except Enantiophoenix (Enantiophoenix coracoid is even little wider and the bone cavity is very small, not so big as in my specimens). Please help to identify these remains by the coracoid form in pterosaurs, primitive birds or even tiny dinosaurs. Any help will be appreciated! Best Regards Domas

  22. Another One I'm Not Sure Of...

    I've got this one fossil that I'm not quite sure how to classify it... It\s supposed to be a fossil Pterosaur tooth found in Kem Kem Beds of Morocco.... 1.75" long... However, it doesn't match any of my Pterosaur teeth... Or Crocodile, or Spinosaurus... Is it some sort of fish tooth? Thanks in advance, more pics if needed...
