  1. Kosmoceras ammonite

    Hi there folks. I got this Kosmoceras from Russia but I have no species ID. Judging by the pictures posted in the ammonid page I was thinking about K. spinosum but have no idea if it's possible to determine the species with the specimen I have. Any help woould be much appreciated. Best regards and thanks in advance. =)
  2. Any idea what this tooth is?

    This tooth is labelled as ^Unidentified Reptile/Fish Tooth - Albian, Russia^ any ideas a s to what it is considering it is quite cheap
  3. Hey guys. I have recently acquired rare shark teeth from Ryazan, Russia. I could offer some for trade. They are Cretaceous teeth: - Squalicorax - Archeolamna - Cretalamna - Ptychodus - Cretoxyrhina - Polyacrodus Here is what I am interested In: Rare shark material, Common shark material but good quality (meg,gw,ric,chub,big hastalis,...), dinosaur material, Other vertebrate fossils like reptiles or other, invertebrate fossils like big crinoids,trilos,... I may be interested by any unusual fossil. PM me if you are interested, show me what you have got and I will show you what I have. Kind regards.
  4. Russian shark teeth ID

    Hello guys! I saw these shark teeth from Ryazan, Russia. The first 6 ( you can put numbers to the teeth according to the order of the pictures ) are identified as Archeolamna. The second 4 are identified as Cretalamna. I am very sure some are not IDed correctly, some swapped btw Cretalamna and Archeolamna and some are completely different species. I really appreciate the help, and if someone could tell me the complete specie name from that location, that would be awesome. Kind regards. Ps : tell me if you need extra pics of the back of the teeth if needed.
  5. Pliosaur tooth from Russia

    Hi everyone, Please can you let me know your thoughts on this Peloneustes portentificus pliosaur tooth, it is from Ural Mountains in Russia and is just above an inch in size? I am not sure if anyone has some nice ones in their collection but it would be cool to see if anyone does for comparison purposes. Thanks! Jai
  6. Russian marine reptile teeth

    Hey guys! I acquired 7 teeth from Russia as plesiosaur teeth. But now I am seeing more pliosaur than plesiosaur in some. A clear ID on the teeth when possible would be really appreciated. You can use the ordre I posted the pics and associate them as numbers . They are all more or less 1cm. Thanks a lot!
  7. Asaphus prep

    Put in a good 17 hours on what was supposed to be a quick and easy prep. This was from my excellent Russian connection, and I was under no illusion that there wouldn't be some problems with this bug. This will have been the third Asaphus lepidurus I've prepared this year, and the second in this orientation. Already, there is a fracture in the last pleural segment / facet nearest the pygidium, so this was going to be a practice prep.
  8. Illaenus sinuatus

    From the album Trilobites

  9. There are several expert preparators who eke out a living collecting and preparing their finds. There are those finds that are just too problematic to deal with, and so get tossed into the chuck pile for whatever reason: missing parts, discolouration from mineralization, compaction damage, or just too time consuming to make good ROI. Some of them will offer up these B-grade pieces for sale for relatively cheap so that folks like me who don't have access to some sites can give it a whirl and get much needed prep practice. One of my main goals of preparation is to learn something new each time, which isn't hard as I've only been preparing with air tools on occasion for a little over a year. I get to learn how to approach different species, challenges, matrix types, try out different techniques, and -- the best teacher of all -- by making mistakes. So this was the piece I acquired cheaply, a Illaenus sinuatus. The specimen came out, as a good number of them do, in pieces and was glued together in the field with good Russian glue. There was a preparation attempt, but it was likely decided it wasn't worth the time to pursue this one given its many problems.

  11. Hello, everyone! Here is another preparation sequence.

  16. So I have a piece of fossilised/petrified wood from the North Caucasus region of Russia, but I'm trying to identify what species it genus it is from. I've done a bit of looking, but I can't seem to find many references to any floral species that this could come from. My reading so far leads me to suspect that it's Pinus / Pine wood that has been fossilised given the region, but does anyone have any more sources on potential tree types that it could be?
  17. Hello! Here is the small preparation sequence of the Lower Cretaceous (Aptian) ammonites Nodosohoplites subplanatus Egoian, 1965 from the North Caucasus of Russia (Krasnodar region, bank of the river Hokodz).
  18. St. Petersburg's area is a is famous for its trilobites. I traveled in this city in last year. Today I show some photos of St. Petersburg city, paleo site and my finds. This is the most famous view of St. Petersburg - drawbridges. All tourists are watching on this bridge in white nights. White nigths are begining in June and it does not get dark at night because Petersburg is a northern city Sightseeing - the sphinx of Egypt stands on the embankment of the river Neva. This sphinx was bought in 19 century by the Russian Tsar I'm looking for fossils My findings. А lot of trilobites. I found whole trilobites too I prep trilobite Asaphus lepidurus
  19. Permian fossils from Krasnoufimsk, Russia

    I'll tell you about fossil sites from Russia. My today's story about Krasnoufimsk. Krasnoufimsk is a small town in Ural area. This town is located near Perm sity and sedimentary rocks around it belong to the lower permian age. Sea creatures are found in Krasnoufimsk. You can see this town location on the map. The view of this site on this photo. It's something similar on a quary and a rubbish dump. The extraction of stone is not carried out here and you must pull out stones and break them. The most popular fossil from here is Helicaprion spiral teeth. But it's rare prize... I walked in this site and I found some fossils. Some plants and plant seed on the stone. Iron substitution Permian trilobite. Not whole. Probably a shell after molting Ammonite uraloceras (?)
  20. Virgatites larisae
