I've been scouring the internet for information on different coral species from the Plio Pleistocene, but am having little luck. I'm fighting confusion, I think I might have lettuce coral of some type, and I want to try and ID it myself. Any suggestions on books I might purchase or sites I might check? Thanks in advance.
ced0015 posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHey all, I've recently caught the "fossil bug", and I have been looking at geologic maps online to help determine potential hunting locations. Is anyone aware of an exhaustive website, book, etc. that labels stratigraphy? If not, what do y'all use to determine the age of certain locations/formations? Any advice is appreciated! Thanks, Caleb
Hello I found a very distinctive belemnite while fossiling on Friday, and want to learn to identify the species myself, and hopefully identify all of the more complete ones I have collected. I used this resource http://www.bgs.ac.uk/discoveringGeology/time/fossilfocus/Belemnite.html to classify its features, and looked at Fossils of the Oxford Clay by Martill and Hutson to try and find it. Unfortunately only six species are identified and this isn't one of them. I looked in British Mesozoic Fossils from the Natural History Museum, and while this has Jurassic Belemnites, they are too early. Trundling around online hasn't gotten me any further. I'm trying to be more systematic in learning about my fossils, and was wondering how others approached first learning about specific species, and if there are any resources you would recommend? And if anyone knows of a monograph on Oxford Clay belemnites, please let me know
