  1. Ray tooth ID

    Hello! Help please to identify ray tooth. Length: 4,5 mm. Age: Cretaceus - Miocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  2. Please help ID

    I found this item today at the beach (Edisto Island SC). I have no ruler handy for size. We are camping at the moment.
  3. Dermal Denticle? Lance fm. Wyoming

    Hi everyone. I found this little fossil recently while working through a sandy conglomerate matrix I brought back from this summer's hunt in Wyoming's Lance fm. I believe it's a dermal denticle from some variety of cartilaginous fish, my first guess would be the Hybodont shark Lonchidion, but the guitarfish Myledaphus is also incredibly common in these sediments, however I haven't seen any pictures of denticles belonging to the latter or close relatives. It's about 2 mm long and about 1.5 mm tall. I would love to hear some input. Thanks, Noel
  4. Ray tooth?

  5. Dasyatis tooth?

    Hello! Is it Dasyatis tooth? Length: ~ 1,5 mm. Age: Cretaceous - Neogene. Location: Western Ukraine Thanks!
  6. I've always loved living fossils, especially the fish. They are relics of an age long lost, offering us a glimpse of an incredible prehistoric world. Some are enigmas that survived countless extinction events since the Devonian. Others are majestic predators that swam alongside the dinosaurs. Let me present my collection of living fossil fishes from the Mesozoic and before. I will begin with one of the most famous of all - the coelacanth Coelacanth Species: Whiteia woodwardi Age: 252.3 - 251.3 mya | early Triassic Formation: Diego Basin; Middle Sakamena Formation Locality: Ambilobe, Madagascar First appearance: Eoachtinistia foreyi was found 360 million years ago in Australia Paddlefish Species: Protopsephurus liui Age: 125.5 - 112.5 mya | early Cretaceous Formation: Yixian Formation Locality: Lingyuan City, Liaoning First appearance: This is the oldest known species Sturgeon Species: Peipiaosteus fengningensis Age: 125.5 - 120 mya | early Cretaceous Formation: Jehol Biota Locality: Chifeng, Nei Mongol First appearance: Multiple species e.g. Yanosteus longidorsalis found since 125 million years ago in China Pipefish Species: Hipposygnathus sp. Age: 28.1 - 13.8 mya | Oliogocene - Miocene Formation: Monterey Formation Locality: Santa Ynez Valley, California, USA First appearance: Solenostomidae species were found 55.8 million years ago in Italy Note: Although most of this collection only includes fishes that existed since the Mesozoic or later, I made an exception for the pipefish as their order, syngnathiform, existed since the late Cretaceous
  7. Burnhamia tooth?

    Hello! Could it be Burnhamia tooth? Length: 6,5 mm. Age: Paleogene-Miocene. Location: Western Ukraine. Thanks!
  8. Shark tooth? North Carolina

    I found this tooth (same tooth, two sides) in some phosphate mine slag from the Aurora Fossil Museum. Can you tell what species this is? I don't see anything quite like it on the charts I've consulted. The other pic is from the same slag and is some kind of ray, I believe.
  9. Myliobatid tooth for ID

    Is it possible to identify this Myliobatid tooth to genus? Length: 6 mm. Age: Paleogene-Miocene. Location: Western Ukraine. Thanks!
  10. Ray tooth ID

  13. Is this a ray barb fragment?

    Is this fossil from the Calvert Cliffs a ray barb fragment, or something else entirely? It measures 1/3 of an inch as far as it's size goes. Thanks for any suggestions regarding it's identity.
  14. Great day in big brook

    Great day in big brook from 7am to 12 noon. Whole bunch of shark teeth including the biggest one I’ve found yet; 1.25 inch goblin plus a lot of John Snow teeth. A couple of pycnodont and a couple of cow nosed rays. One small enchodus and a couple of TBDs. Did also find one tick when I got home so be aware
  15. ray/shark tooth or just shell fragment

    Good morning again!...Been working on this little piece I found in Pennsylvania Winterset limestone in Kansas City, Missouri. Before I go any further, can anyone help with what it is? If just a shell fragment, I"ll stop and add it to my growing rock pile! :).. thanks! Bone
  16. Atlantic beach NC finds

    We are on vacation at Atlantic beach NC. My wife and l went shell collecting and I just happened to find these. I recognize the ray mouth plate but I'm drawing a blank on the other, dolphin or fish?
  17. Calvert Cliffs Ray teeth

    Hi everyone, I would like to ask about these ray teeth from Calvert Cliffs. All I know is that some of them are Aetobatos I think. Thank you.
  18. Here are my new fossils! And how my collection looks now. For size comparison the enchodus tooth to the right in the picture of the entire collection is 5,6cm long (2.2 Inches long)
  19. Castle Hayne fm. Ray tooth

    Found this little guy in some Castle Hayne formation micro-matrix from Eastern North Carolina. I've tentatively ID'd it as Daysatis sp. Please, confirm, correct or if possible ID to species? Also, In the 3rd and 4th pix, do you think the circular "structure" on the surface is diagnostic, pathologic, damage or ?? Scale is 1mm. (And, please excuse my ugly green clay!) Thanks.
  20. Batoidea unindent. Vertebrae

    From the album Cenomanian Shark Teeth and other Marine Fauna, Ryazan Oblast, Russia

    Batoidea unindent. Vertebrae. Ray material is seldom found at the quarry.
  21. Just found this at Whiskey Bridge. Photos suck because the natural light is gone and I'm too tired to find a camera, but I don't think there's much else this could be. It's a cm long, clearly broken at one end. I didn't think to look around for the rest of it, but I doubt I would have found anything anyway- this was in a heap of eroded-away bits of dirt, everything scattered around.
  22. Ray mouth plate?

    Thinking this is a Ray mouth plate. The one on top is my question. I don't find them this large, the other is just there to compare. Found in Venice Florida in mound of fill dirt.
  23. Ray plate or what?

    Found this on the shore in the Potomac with tons of other ray fossils. Is this from a ray or something else?
