  1. Pterosaur tooth with root

    Hello all, Here is a rooted pterosaur tooth from the kemkem. It's 6.5 cm long and is from the Kemkem. Does anyone know if an exact species can be determined for this tooth?
  2. Pterosaur tooth or fish?

    Any idea on this tooth, labelled as pterosaur? No bigger pics available because of its small size. It is sold as a pterosaur tooth from the Solnhofen formation. It is only 3mm in length---much smaller than other teeth I see there and smaller than the tooth I have from there. Most pterosaur from there seem to be curved, whereas this is quite straight, which makes me think it's probably not a pterosaur. It's a really tiny tooth---3mm. Even smaller than the Bull Canyon pterosaur teeth, could be from a rarer type of pterosaur there? Most are sold as Rhmphorhynchus, but I see there are a lot of pterosaurs from that location--incluiding the quite small pterodactylus and the tiny aerodactylus Thanks
  3. Alcione - Pterosaur humerus?

    Quite interested in this pterosaur humerus. It is described as Alcione -- From Morocco. The piece measures 16cm x 10cm The shape does seem to match another I saw posted here, but a more knowledgable view would be great. Many thanks
  4. Noripterus?

    Any pterosaur experts able to ID an old Mongolian tooth? I've been looking into it and believe it could be Noripterus, going by the description of Noripterus been cone-shaped teeth and, the fish-based diet of Noripterus also fits conical teeth. It's an old collection tooth and seller doesn't have the formation, unfortunately, other than it being early cretaceous. I believe it might be from Tsagaantsav Formation which is one of the few formations I could find which fits the early Cretaceous age and has pterosaur remains found. Now, I personally haven't seen any teeth which resemble this one. The closest is Lyme Regis ichthyosaur, but I don't think Ichthyosaur has been found in Mongolia, I don't think it's a marine formation and there are no striations on the tooth. The base doesn't have a great photo, but it is oval in shape--matching the one pic I could find of Noripterus jaw. I haven't heard anything back from a couple I've emailed it too, except for one paleontologist who didn't recognise it. It's a very small tooth. 12mm in length. If someone is able to take a look, that would be great.
  5. Hello everyone, after browsing the internet i came across a very interesting private opalised fossil collection (http://andrestucki.blogspot.com/). In this collection there is various fossil specimens, however it has most notably AN OPALISED PTEROSAUR SPECIMEN!!! This specimen is the most complete opalised pterosaur i have ever seen as it includes a fibula and tibia, tooth, partial skull fragments as well as a possible wing imprint and internal details in the fossils. This specimen is beyond beyond rare and as you could imagine is extremely scientifically valuable. As of now i am trying everything in my power to contact the owner but all i can do is leave comments on his posts. If anyone has any clue how to contact him directly or possible ways to, please please let me know!! Ps here is a video about only the Tibia And Fibula of the Specimen as well as a photograph, Thank you
  6. Pterosaur Origins Found

    Dinosaur origins of the first flying vertebrates, Pterosauria, revealed in paper by Martin Ezcurra, Sterling Nesbitt and others. Thanks to Arizona Fossils for pointing this out.

  7. Pterosaur teeth from Morocco

    What about pterosaur teeth from Morocco? I have see hundreds of these teeth, nice teeth with [inexpensive] price only. Other pterosaur teeth, for example ramphorynchus, cost [is very expensive]. Pterosaur teeth from kem kem beds of Morocco are very common fossil, but other pterosaur material from Morocco, i think not. I want to buy a tooth, but first to learn some facts.
  8. Hi, Wanted to ask if these two wing bones on matrix are Pterosaur if anyone can help confirm? It is from the Ouled Abdoun Basin in Morocco (I don't know if it is from the Maastrichtian deposits) and I am a bit unsure if they are Pterosaur or bird. One bone is 33cm in length & the other larger one is 43cm in length. If they are Pterosaur, do they look like it could be from an Azhdarchid Pterosaur due to the size? Thanks.
  9. Hello, I found this bone in the marine deposits of the Boulonnais, France. Upper Jurassic. I assumed it is a part of the jaw (snout) of a toothless ophthalmosaurus, which are abundant there (mainly vertebrae). However, this week I read the article about a toothless pterosaur jaw from the UK and saw some resemblance. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-54891483 I added the pictures of the bone, the pterosaur and an ophthalmosaurus for comparison. I am curious about your thoughts. Regards, Niels
  10. Hi all This may have been discussed before so let me know if it has but I was interested to know if anyone had read this paper: Frey, Eberhard & Martill, David & Buchy, M.-C. (2003). A new crested ornithocheirid from the Lower Cretaceous of northeastern Brazil and the unusual death of an unusual pterosaur. Geological Society, London, Special Publications. 217. 55-63. 10.1144/GSL.SP.2003.217.01.05. And what their opinions were on it? Was the pterosaur death directly linked to the leaf or was the leaf an added biproduct during the fossilisation process?
  11. Mystery Solnhofen Tooth!

    I saw this tooth for sale recently, labeled as Pterosaur from Solnhofen, the tooth seems way too thick to be pterosaur, any thoughts? I'm thinking it might be fish, but I have no idea.
  12. Here is something from last week's virtual SVP conference... my colleague and I made the news, and not for our use of banned words. https://www.livescience.com/pterosaurs-walked-in-rain.html?fbclid=IwAR0fn9ovHHOHdCcuc0P0tdYJNi0E7D_KULlPv7ajP2KngC-Yc4LMHaJ3asg
  13. Pterosaur

    Hi All Over the past few weeks, things with me on the fossil front have been a bit quiet. But this did arrive in the mail this week. Pterosaur from Bull Canyon, New Mexico Scale is in mm Any ideas what Pterosaur it is
  14. Pterosaur Finger Bone?

    I've been doing a lot of exploration in the Grayson Formation (Lower Cretaceous) exposures south of Waco lately, and so last week I was doing some hunting on a nice marly slope in the South Bosque River. I picked up lots of pyritized heteromorph ammonites and some turritella, but what really caught my eye was this tiny piece of fossilized bone. I know that vertebrate material can be found in the Grayson - I've even found some nice Cretolamna and Ptychodus teeth myself - but this doesn't seem to be fish or shark. The walls of the inner cavity are extremely thin when you look at the cross section where it is broken which is what's leading me in the pterosaur direction. Maybe a metatarsal? Or a fragment of a larger bone from a much smaller species? Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Pterosaur Big Brook or broken bone

    So I've been meaning to put up a couple threads on this forum for a while now. I am really psyched about figuring this one out because i'm hoping its a {terosaur tooth! Its hard to Id because of a tip fracture, its hard to tell if its just a bone or what. Also I want to get this "coral" quartz rock ID'd and it is tied to another thread i'm making. Link here;
  16. Another Kem Kem Pterosaur

    Unbelievable pterosaur diversity in this part of North Africa. This paper describes a unique small, long-beaked pterosaur from the Kem Kem Group of Morocco. Does not appear to be named. Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667120303293
  17. Alanqa pterosaur beak?

    Saw this pair for sale, now they are sold as Alanqa but, I've seen some Alanqa beak fossils posted on here and they have a triangular shape to them, which makes me think these aren't Alanqa. Anyone able to help and let me know if they are pterosaur and/or which species they might be from, if it's possible to tell? Pictures -1 - 4 are of the first one. It is 1.5 inch Pictures 5 - 8 are of the 2nd is 1.1 inch Many thanks
  18. Pterosaur bone?

    Hello, Any thoughts on this? Sold as a pterosaur finger bone--repaired in two places. From Kem Kem basin. Seller describes it as being dense but lightweight. 10.3 cm long
  19. Kem Kem pterosaur beak. Alanqa?

    Hello! I get this partial pterosaur beak from Kem Kem. Can it be from Alanqa? Thank you!
  20. Kem Kem pterosaur teeth: any clarity?

    I recently purchased the two Kem Kem pterosaur teeth shown below. The seller identified both as "Siroccopteryx (Coloborhynchus) moroccensis", but I've learned by now that sellers will apply any remotely plausible name to help a fossil sell, even if it isn't scientifically justified. I read the pinned page on Kem Kem pterosaur ID, but am still confused about the exact species/genus ID of my teeth (if ID to that level is even possible for isolated Kem Kem pterosaur teeth). So: 1. Are these, in fact, both pterosaur teeth? My understanding is that pterosaur teeth are hollow and have enamel only on the tips. Both these teeth are hollow, and while the larger is missing enamel the smaller indeed has enamel only on its tip. These also do resemble photos of other Kem Kem pterosaur teeth online, though the larger is a bit unusual (though it matches the tooth in Figure 7b of the pinned article). 2. Do any of the experts here feel comfortable stating a genus for either tooth? Or do I just need to abandon my hope for ID of isolated reptile teeth to that taxonomic level? Any help is appreciated!
  21. I have a couple riker boxes of a few dinosaur teeth. Nothing super high quality; I enjoy a variety of teeth and was on a budget so I never looked for the highest quality of teeth to buy. I'm happy with a nice representative sample of the animal. I've moved away from buying many specimens now as I'd rather go out and find my own at some point, but I bought these years ago and I'm very happy with the diversity they represent. Plus as I teach geology, they are great teaching specimens for the kids to. First up is my collection of Cretaceous North American teeth from Hell Creek, Lance, and Judith River Formations. Most are dinosaurs, though there are a couple other fauna represented here to. Probably one of my favorite teeth from this box is the acid etched raptor tooth. Though I do really like the JR tyrannosaur tooth as well (I watched that one sell for more than I could hope to purchase, but it was returned as it splintered during shipping. So I bought it as a short prep project for cheap. I never filled in the cracks as I prefer most things unrestored).
  22. A pair of pterosaur teeth

    These caught my eye. First is Rhamphorhynchus from Solnhofen, Germany. 1cm. Edir: picture order keeps messing up. Its the thin, yellowish ond. 2nd is undetermined pterosaur from Mongolia. 12mm. Says from Monglei, chalk. Edit: picture order keeps messing up. Its the dark fat one. If someone can take a look, let me know what you think. Thanks

  24. Kem Kem Pterosaur vertebra?

    I have my doubts--aren't verts with the sort of ball-shaped end like this usually crocodile? It's been sold as a vertebra from Sirrocopterex. 3.5 cm in length. I'm suspecting croc, I'd love to be proved wrong though--a pterosaur vert would be a nice piece. Thanks for the help.
  25. Hello, three teeth that I am interested in. If someone is able to check that they are as described, that would be super! 1st is a pterosaur tooth from the Dockum Group, Scurry County, Texas - 0.9cm 2nd - Dromaeosaurus - 1.1 cm from Judith River 3rd - Theropod from Bissekty Formation - 3/4 inch. Many thanks. It's the pterosaur tooth that most interests me. I don't have any from that formation.
