  2. Million Pound Mushroom?

    More images of the million pound mushroom??
  3. Million Pound Mushroom?

    Hi everyone, I'm a complete novice here, I purchased this strange rock as a souvenir when travelling through Mongolia and Russia if was bought from Nomads who forage the area close to lake Baikal on the Mongolia side of the border. It strangely drew me to it as it was sort of hidden under some other prettier looking rocks. The internet doesn't seem to say it's likely to be a mushroom, although as I'm sure you will agree from the photos it's easy to believe it is. I'd appreciate anyone expertise and thoughts anyone might have on Mushrooms or anything similar they have seen before? Thank you for your time and interest.
  4. I don't buy many fossils and most that I have bought, or that have been bought for me, were from gift shops and the like when I first started collecting. However, for my birthday a couple of years back, my wife surprised me with this plate of a pair of Russian trilobites. They are Asaphus Intermedius and Asaphus Punctatus. I was overjoyed! From my meager knowledge at the time, I thought that they were completely real. I knew to look out for fakes (i.e. carvings, plaster/resin cast, etc.), or heavily composite specimens from other areas, and since these came from Russia, I thought I was in the clear. My wife also spoke to the seller, and from my understanding, they were very helpful and seemed sincere. They also disclosed that some of their specimens do have a little restoration/repair work, such as the crack on the back of my plate and had a money back guarantee. Fast forward a couple of years... With my birthday coming up and me working on setting up a new display cabinet I got to thinking about this plate of trilobites. Then I remembered that these were from Russia, and that I read somewhere that things coming from there tend to be heavily restored with resin and the like. I have also read that you can tell by using a UV light (black light) to shine on them and any resin used will glow. I don't have one handy, but will pick one up the next time I'm out to test with. So I wanted to poll the community and see what people thought. Are these real? Fake? Heavily restored? I just realized that I didn't include some form of measurement or something for scale in the pics... Each trilobite is roughly 3.5 inches long x 2 inches wide (9 cm x 5cm). The whole plate is 5 inches x 6 inches (12.5cm x 15cm). Front view: Back View: Notice the glued crack... Side Views: Possible restored area on pygidium? Appears to be a slightly different shade than rest of trilobite. Resin? I can provide more pics if needed. And include a scale.
  5. hafa adai, I'd really like to buy one or two of those detailed trilobites with spines, appendages and all, either Russian or Moroccan. I see prices all over the map, and have observed a few really bad fakes. I'm sure that there are also a lot of really good fakes (hence the wild price differences). Can anyone recommend a checklist/things to look for and/or a reputable dealer (preferably one that doesn't charge mortgage-level prices)? I don't want to keep bothering folks with repeated queries of Is this one good?" "How about this one?" I've read a number of posts in this form, and they tend to refer to individual specimens. I"m looking more for something that I can save to my HD and refer to while I"m shopping online. thank you in advance, hemi
  6. Wolf Head Found in Russian Arctic

    Very interesting ... if true. was on Yahoo so one never knows for sure. https://news.yahoo.com/head-32-000-old-wolf-found-russian-arctic-093857922.html
  7. I recently bought these two ammonites from a seller who listed them as Kosmoceras sp from Khakassia, Russia, Jurassic period. Based on shape and size, I think these are likely the same species, but the white one has had more shell material removed; what's remaining looks super chalky with a lot of calcium in it. The more intact fossil has curvy ribbing and a slightly braided look to the keel, which has a distinct bevel. I haven't ever seen a Kosmoceras that looks like this - my other Kosmoceras specimens are pyritized fossils from near the Volga River and look much spinier. Can anyone confirm the ID or suggest a different one? Thank you!
  8. Russian tyrannosaur tooth , Kileskus?

    Hi! I´m not very familiar with Russian dinosaur teeth, But I saw this tooth for sale and its labeled as Kileskus from Itat formation Russia. Is it possible that it is the correct id or could it be something else? The photos isnt very good though
  9. chelicerata rossica

    Marshall_et_al-2014-Palaeontology.pdf A DIVERSE CHASMATASPIDID (ARTHROPODA:CHELICERATA) FAUNA FROM THE EARLY DEVONIAN (LOCHKOVIAN) OF SIBERIA by DAVID J. MARSHALL, JAMES C. LAMSDELL, EVGENIY SHPINEV and SIMON J. BRADDY Palaeontology, Vol. 57, Part 3, 2014, pp. 631–655 Key words: Palaeozoic, Chasmataspidida, Heteroaspis, Dvulikiaspis, Nahlyostaspis, Skrytyaspis, convergence. "two novel chasmataspidid species: Nahlyostaspis bergstroemi gen. et sp. nov. and Skrytyaspis andersoni gen. et sp. nov. ‘Eurypterus’ stoermeri and ‘Tylopterella’ menneri are both redescribed as chasmataspidids, having previously been assigned to Eurypterida."
  10. On April 20, 2019, a free paleontological excursion took place under the working title “Moscow Sea”. The weather was wonderful. +12 degrees clear. As a result, no one left without finds: ammonites (whole and fragments), belemnites, brachiopods and bivalves were found. My fees for the tour: a book on paleontology in Moscow and Moscow region, posters and demonstration materials, equipment for video shooting. Additionally, he grabbed PVA glue to process valuable finds immediately on the spot. After collecting at the Pionerskaya metro station, we headed to Filevsky Park. Next was a brief lecture on the history of the Earth, safety and that can be found. And here we finally went to the "ammonite stream." The group immediately began to search. Someone was washing the soil through the sieves brought from the house, someone had bit into the clay of the Jurassic period with the help of sapper blades. And the finds were not long in coming. Just a few minutes later, one of the participants of the excursion found a small but pretty brachiopod Rhynchonella. The find belongs to the Jurassic period, its age is about 150 million years. A cute Russiella brachiopod, something similar to the May beetle in a good preservation. Slightly above is a fragment of the shell of the same Russiella, on which the lock is clearly visible - the same shell structure feature that distinguishes brachiopod from bivalves.
  11. Hi! Previous weekend me and my friend (paleozoic echinoderms researcher) spent in the quarry near Kasimov (Ryazan region, Russia) where upper carboniferous (pennsylvanian) deposits are exposed. This was an opening of the new fossil hunting season. The main target were echinoderms and especially crinoids. The weather was not very comfortable (+6 C and some rain) but perfect for echinoderm hunting. They become contrast and much more visible when wet. Here is some pictures.
  12. 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. =)
  13. 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

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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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!
