  2. My Best Pycnodont Plate

    Most people don't know it, but besides my adventures in the realm of Paleozoic vertebrates, I also do a lot of collecting in the Cretaceous of West Tennessee and Northeast Mississippi. The Cretaceous of West TN is known for having a wide diversity of excellently preserved invertebrates (think Coon Creek Formation), but the vertebrate life is largely ignored. It mainly consists of shallow water marine reptiles, sharks, fish, and occasionally terrestrial animals. My collection consists primarily of marine reptile bones and a few teeth, but I have a small selection of fish, shark, and terrestrial material as well. This specimen here was found at an undisclosed location in the Coon Creek Formation. I have found a few loose pycnodont teeth, but I was super excited to find this huge mouth plate, complete with teeth and a good chunk of bone still attached. Some of the teeth were broken, I found this specimen a few months ago and have been slowly prepping, repairing, and stabilizing the specimen. Here is the end result! Enjoy! I certainly treasure this specimen, as it is the most complete one I have found in my Cretaceous adventures, and is quite large! Anomoeodus latidens fish tooth plate with jaw Coon Creek Formation West Tennessee, USA
  3. I had a few hours to hunt Lower Glen Rose in Canyon Lake, Texas area this past week. I enjoyed pleasant sunny weather and some unusual success. Nothing too rare was found. I spent 30 minutes at Leptosalenia texana zone finding the usual 3 echinoids plus a nice 20mm x 8mm pycnodont tooth (2 pics). At another site (where my first hunt yielded one crushed Pygopyrina & a few crab claws a few weeks ago), I collected one small deflated Coenholectypus sp. plus several fragments. I also found one fairy complete Pygopyrina, one Leptosalenia sp., one Parothopsis comalensis, two juvenile Hyposalenia phillipsae, and one Goniopygus sp. plus a few nice spines and echinoid parts. See last pic. Great fossil hunting adventure. I wish they all could go that well.
  4. I'm still breaking down shale chunks that I brought home from the Martin Marietta quarry in Midlothian, TX. Site covers the Atco contact between the Eagle Ford shale & the Austin Chalk formations. Lots of micro stuff in there. Here are my latest tiny finds. Scale in all photos is in millimeters. Pycnodont fish tooth. Thanks to Mike Everhart for the ID! Ptychotrygon sp. ray tooth #1 Ptychotrygon sp. ray tooth #2 Vertebra, I suspect fish of some type or other, That's the offbeat stuff. Most of the rest is all shark teeth in varying condition. Haven't gotten photos of those yet, too big for my micro camera.
  5. Pycnodont

    There are at least four different and so far undescribed Pycnodonts in Gara es Sbâa. This fish might belong to the genus Nursallia.
  6. Pycnodontidae indet.
