    Shelling Along the Chesapeake

    Inspired by trip reports by other members on the fossil shells of the Middle Miocene Choptank Formation, especially @I_gotta_rock's report from 2018, over the past several months I have made a couple trips to Matoaka Beach Cabins in Maryland to collect some of the incredible invertebrate material exposed along the cliffs and in that way draw the quizzical looks of other collectors there combing for shark teeth. It is a lot of fun to just park myself along the beach and break down pieces of talus with a screwdriver to uncover hundreds, if not thousands, of shells. Unfortunately the shells are i

    Pliocene? Southern California fossils

    The other day I acquired a few fossils from fellow members of the rockhound club who spend their Winters (except this past winter) down in Arizona and collect there and in neighboring states. They gave me the location via the Gem Trails book they used to find it, but of course that doesn't provide any info on the formation nor any specific IDs for what you find there. I'm having trouble (as usual) finding this information, so I wonder if anyone here has this info handy. I found a geo map of Calif and it appears to be Pliocene in that area, but it doesn't give any formation names. The area

    Limestone Fossils?

    Hi All, I am new here but have a couple photos of recent finds and would appreciate any thoughts on what they are. These are about two inches long and were found on a decorative limestone slab near a neighbor's pool in Woodside, CA. The limestone was sourced locally. Thanks!

    Fossil Sand Dollar ID

    I have had this piece in my collection and just sitting on a shelf for a very long time. I was wondering if anyone recognizes it and can provide a name, location and age? Thanks
  5. Left sand dollar is modern day I found in the Red Sea on the right is a fossil sand dollar I found embedded in limestone on dry land this is all in Saudi Arabia when I checked the last time it was underwater was in the Cretaceous I want to know as much as possible about this both sand dollars are very different in size and shape for it to adapt this much it must be millions of years old
  6. Hi, Can someone please help me with an ID on the following fossils and how old they may be? Whale tooth (Florida) 80mm long x 25mm wide Sand Dollar (Morocco) 80mm diameter Thanks!

    Large sand dollar

    Hello I was wondering if anyone knew the species of this sand dollar. It's quite large 7.26x6.98" . I can't seem to find a match online that is this size and wanted to be certain they species so I can put on display correctly. It was found in North Port Florida from a lake that was being dug and because it being 20' below and finding Megalodon teeth around it I'm guessing it's from the Miocene to Pliocene Epoch. Any info or links would be most appreciated Brandon

    Circles on Sand Dollar

    I’ve had this mepygurus marmonti sand dollar from the Jurassic of Madagascar for years now and when I was looking at it I noticed these small circles on the bottom. Are these on every sand dollar, it appears to be a part of it so my guess was some sort of way for tiny legs to attach but it’s just a guess the sand dollar is 7.5 centimeters and each dot is just under 1 millimeter
  9. Hi, First time on this site and in need of advise. A BF & I found this sand dollar fossil at Stinson Beach a couple years ago. I want to make an effort to ensure I’m storing it right. I’m also curious how to clean at least the sand off, but maybe separating the large broken chunk from the (fingers crossed) undamaged sand dollar attached. Would that be detrimental to the fossil? thank you for all time & help, I can confidently say I know nothing. X Jake
  10. Hello members of TFF I'm looking for echinoids (sea urchins/sand dollars) to increase my collection of this kind of fossils. I'm interested in all kind of echinoids but what matter for me its the state of conservation. I have for trade several types of fossils from miocene (shark teeth, bivalves, gastropods...), cretaceous (echinoids, bivalves, gastropods) and Jurassic (echinoids, brachiopods, vertebrate material...) Thanks Vieira

    Is this a type of sand dollar

    What are these? Seems to fat to be a sand dollar. came from Greene county Alabama
  12. I am going to take my 9 years old son to California in mid February for a week. We plan to collect shark tooth at Ernst Quarries and we also want to collect other fossils along the coast from San Francisco to LA. I did many research and found a few sites that we really want to go. Bean Creek at Scotts Valley for sand dollar, Capitola Beach for shells and maybe whale bone, Carmel valley for crab, and Jalama Beach for fish. I did more research and found out that the Bean Creek location is off limit now. I would like to ask if the other places still ok. We will fly to LA and driv

    Mellita aclinensis

    Pieces of these are very common at this site, along with pieces of a few other species of sand dollar. However complete specimens are very rare to find. This is the 3rd and by far the best specimen I have found at this site.

    Cool road find

    While working on a gravel road I found this beside my truck. I thought it was a piece of broken pottery at first.

    Encope tamiamiensis

    The sample image here was collected directly from a Drag Line operator's windrow in a lime rock mine in Southern FL just outside of Naples around the Sable Palm area of the Big Cypress swamp of the Everglades in 1997. The specimen has been completely removed from the limestone petrol (lime rock low density ls) matrix. What is interesting is the general shape of the specimen and how this 5 million year old specimen differs from the present day specimen at the same general location. I am guessing the seas of which the archaic specimens existed in were more challenging to exist in general as th

    What is this fossil?

    Hello, I was shell hunting today on Holden Beach and found, what I believe, is a fossil. It appears to be some type of sea biscuit(based on photos I’ve found online). It is very hard and filled with some type of compacted sediment. Any ideas what it might be and how old it is?

    Sand dollar prep

    Today I decided to try and prep a Sand dollar that was found by @digit and given to me at our March hunt at Cookie Cutter Creek. There was a good amount of matrix covering the top and bottom of this echinoid. While my main focus was uncovering the top portion I decided to also work on the bottom as well. Unfortunately I deleted the before pic by accident, but I took a pic that shows the pile of debris that I have removed so far. This is a work in progress so I will post more pics as I continue to work on it. First pic shows the top 2nd pic shows the bottom. As you can see from the pic all I ha

    Sand Dollar id please

    I'm interested in bidding for these sand dollars on our favorite website, but the seller can't tell me where they are from or what the statigraphy is. There are quite a few of them available on various websites, but they hardly give any more information about them. Most of them appear to be from Morocco, although I also saw similar ones from Florida. The given stratigraphy ranges from Cretaceous to Pleistocene and no one names even a genus, let alone a species. I sure would appreciate some details about them if anyone here in the forum has some in-depth information about them.

    Sand Dollar ID

    I have had this sand dollar in my collection for forever, I alway keep it with a modern one. I have no info on it and it was given to me from a friend. Any ID and possible location would be appreciated.
  20. Well, it's been a while since I've been out and about growing my collection of long-since-perished critters, so needless to say, I've been restless. I've been somewhat late in putting up my trip report, as this was doubling as a school project (writing a news feature on PAG (Paleontology Association of GA) for the school news site, 3ten) and everything at the place was taken on an NVidia whereas usually my smartphone does the trick. Anyway, enough BORING excuse backstories! Let's get to the meat of it! This past week was rather hectic for me

    Partial sand dollar with extra

    I've had this for years, tucked away & had forgotten about it. Partial sand dollar with beautiful markings. Looking at it now, I see something on the underside that has me curious. At first they (2 of them) looked like small agates, which seemed odd. A closer look shows what appears to be something inside. There are the usual partial shells & probable steinkerns, but these 2 things are different. I've focused mainly on the larger of the two since it's easier to photograph for me, using a few different angles. I'll let you be the judge on them. Am I just seeing thing's or is there reall

    Sand dollar pieces?

    I keep finding these, always broken, always in the kind of ground that looks like and literally has the texture of the inside of a Butterfinger candy bar. Kinda look like little rock tacos, lol. They're rough like sandpaper and brittle. Bits of sand dollar? There's just not enough for me to tell. Sw Fl. Thanks in advance!

    Calvert 7/13

    Went back down to Calvert cliffs hoping to score something good. I was hoping not to have bad luck considering its Friday the 13th! But over all I think I did alright. Ended up finding what I think is a fossil sand dollar, a big ole’ shark vert (even bigger for being found in Maryland), and I also included some bones from a recent trip. I’m thinking whale? But somebody probably knows better than I do... I’ve never found a sand dollar at the cliffs before, so i think that’s kinda cool. Maybe they’re more common than I think, but either way I’m happy with it! Than
  24. Hello! Here is a larger bi-valve - Is it Glycymeris sp.? As for the sand dollar - Any ideas? These are from the Aurora, North Carolina area.
