  1. What is this?

    I found this at a man made lake, so there was alot of deep digging in order for them to make the lake. Lake Miramar is in San Diego but a little north east of the metropolitan area.

  3. Took this photo of an unnamed eschrichtiid from the Pliocene San Diego Formation of San Diego County in March 2019. Until the 2000s, the fossil record of gray whales was confined to the Pleistocene, but thanks to the work of Michelangelo Bisconti, it is apparent that gray whales emerged about the same time as the oldest rorquals (Eschrichtioides was long considered a balaenopterid, but eventually recognized as a gray whale relative).
  4. The balaenid specimen SDNHM 43880 I photographed at the San Diego Natural History Museum in December 2017 was once referred to Balaenula, but Churchill et al. (2012) recovered it as sister to the bowhead whale rather the right whales and Balaenula, and recent erection of Archaeobalaena dosanko for the one balaenid specimen from Japan previously referred to Balaenula makes clear that the previous referral of SDNHM 43880 was untenable. However, it is unclear whether SDNHM 43880 is a new genus and species or alternatively a new Balaena species due to the cladistic position of SDNHM 43880 obtained by Churchill et al. (2012). Churchill, M., Berta, A. and Deméré, T. (2012), The systematics of right whales (Mysticeti: Balaenidae). Marine Mammal Science, 28: 497-521. doi:10.1111/j.1748-7692.2011.00504.x
  5. San Diego fossil plants

    Hey everyone pretty new here. My wife and I were at the beach collecting shells and I noticed some erosion on the cliffs and found these in the ruble. I think these are fossil plants. Looks to me like a leaf and fern? I’d love some help putting a name to these if possible. USA, California, San Diego, Sunset Cliffs on the beach
  6. A Eurypterid in San Diego?

    Found this artifact in Black's Beach, San Diego. Looks like a 6-ft scorpion. A Eurypterid maybe? I video and 3D scanned the find and sent it to The Nat and ROM (Toronto). Waiting for a response. Here are a few pictures. This ditch is likely to have been dug by the recent rains. Compare the size to my wrist watch: Closer look: Wavefront .obj file: Hit me up for high-res images, obj file, video, etc. Thanks!
  7. People have told me to go to Diamond Valley, They said there are lots of fossils there. The lake is man made though. Paleontologist already dug out the fossils. So what is so good about it.
  8. Walking my dogs in the canyon today behind my house and found this. It was on a dried up river bed next to an incline where the recent rains knocked a lot of stuff down. I’m located in in San Diego and found this is the mission valley area. Looking foward to learning a lot from this forum. I’m 23 and very new to fossil hunting but have gotten lucky a few times camping.
  9. Gastropod Rescue

    Here is a nice little gastropod cluster on the matrix that was rescued from a construction site along Reynard Way in San Diego. I think they are in the family Naticidae and are possibly Polinices galianor. Anyone have any thoughts? I'd love to nail it down more specifically if possible. Naticidae "Reynard Way" ~3-1.5Mya Pliocene to Early Pleistocene San Diego Formation San Diego County, CA Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Mollusca Class: Gastropoda -- Subclass: Caenogastropoda Order: Littorinimorpha Family: Naticidae Genus: Favor Polinices? Species: Galianor
  10. San Diego Fossil Sites

    Does anybody know of fossil collecting areas in San Diego that are on BLM land or Private land (with owners who will probably grant you permission to collect on their property?)
  11. Any Sites in San Diego?

    I'm at San Diego for this weekend, and I'd like to know if there are any good fossil sites around there. I understand that many fossils in San Diego have been covered up or destroyed due to land development. If anyone knows of a fossil site, please reply or PM me. I've heard that Pacific Beach has some fossilized shells at its shore, has anybody been there to confirm this? Thanks, Seann
  12. Is it a hoof?

    Hi Everyone! I found this today digging in an outcropping of the San Mateo formation in Oceanside, California. I have found horse teeth at this site before. Not sure about this one, but I am wondering if it could be a hoof? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated! Thanks
  13. San Diego Sites

    I'm going to be in San Diego for a couple days next month and would love to hit a site for a bit of collecting, IF I can talk my wife into breaking away from the beach and the sea lions for a few minutes. Can anyone give me some insight into possible locations? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  14. Lawrence Canyon Closed

    I headed up to Lawrence Canyon last week and this is what I found. Looks like the area is finally being developed. Say bye bye to another interesting and productive San Diego site. In honor of the site, here are a few of my favorite finds from Lawrence Canyon. I'd encourage everyone to post their favorites too.
  15. How old is it?

    I found a whole shelf of these sand dollar urchins fused in sandstone on the edge of Coronado Island, in the San Diego Bay. Anyone have a clue how old they are?
  16. I have not run across many San Diego based fossil collectors who go out regularly. I am out 2-3 times a week and am always exploring new "legal" areas to potentially collect from. Besides the occasional trips to the desert, anyone know of San Diego based fossil organizations or people who are active field collectors?
