  4. Chesapectin nefrens

    From the album Calvert Cliffs

    Collected loose on the beach in St. Leonard, Maryland middle Miocene Choptank Formation Drum Cliff Member Chesapectin nefrens is an index fossil for the Drum Cliff Member of the Choptank Formation, meaning that whatever chunk of matrix one may find fallen out of the cliffs, the precise layer is known so that other fossils in the same block can be identified. These are a very common find at St. Leonard and other places, but I particularly liked the coloration on this one!

  5. Greetings, TFF crew. I seriously doubt that there's any great mystery to what this fossil is, but since it's my first self-liberated fossil, I decided to post. I'd go out on a limb and say that it's some type of miocene scallop. I was driving through a local canyon, not far from the now forbidden zone in Old Topanga, when I spotted a decent sized piece of sandstone between the road and the crumbling hillside. I had my GF go out and grab it while I kept it safe with other cars. We could see what looked like the wavy edges of a scallop at the outside of the sandstone. There are still a few more in evidence. I was fairly careful, but perhaps not careful enough in retrospect, and didn't have a thin "liberating" tool, so I used the only cold-chisel I have. I tapped around, maybe 4mm from the subject's edge, and it split. I then used a little pick to clean out most of the sandstone. Unfortunately, some fossil material came off with a piece of the shell, but it's mostly intact. Surely I could have done a bit better, and will the next time. I'm still rather jazzed to have my first stone produce some "color". There's also a little dark piece that caught my eye. It's probably 10mm in length. It's probably some sort of quartz fragment, but then again maybe it's some sort of coprolite. Poop springs eternal, right? (Sorry) Cheers all.
  6. estero scallop, pleistocene, id?

    I came across this beautiful scallop, and unfortunately it was tightly bonded to a piece of limestone ( I only had my fingers to chip it out, and that wouldn't have worked, couldn't even dig at the hard clay) but it was so beautiful with all the little spines. when I tried to i.d. it from the Florida Paleontology site, I could only come up with Antillipecten antillarum...is that a good guess, or does someone have a better one. Perhaps someone recognizes it instantly. I found it on a construction site near Estero FL, which means it is probably pleistocene. Thanks.
  7. For awhile now, I have been trying to pin down this scallop. I think it is an argopecten, possibly comparilis, or evergladesensis, but the images I can find on line of those, seem to show ribs that are rounded on top. These shells have very flat ribs, with a very slight indentation running down the center of each. The shells are offset a bit. I found them in the northern most edge of ochopee member of the Tamiami formation, along with euvola hemicyclica, and a really lovely little urchin test, the exact name of which I don't recall as I sit here typing. I have a collection of 30 different sizes I am trying to put together in a ryker box, but have not yet done so, because I just don't know the id...a friend suggested I check out dimarzipecten crocus....but that kind of obscure reference is wa-a-ay beyond me. I'd rather put to use someone's knowledge, if you know what it is, would you please take a moment and explain Why you i.d. it as you do. Much appreciated.
  8. Big scallop from France

    Hi all, So I just purchased this nice huge scallop for a killer price. Though not complete, i still love it. Its from the quarry of Lacoste, in Vaucluse, Southern France. From the Miocene. Well, it was sold to me as Chlamys latissima, but in some of my books it mentions Chlamys gigantea instead. So I was wondering, what species is it? Oh, also, does anyone know more precisely how old the scallop is, and what formation it is from? Thanks in advance! Max
  9. World Of Fossils Logo

    Hi all, Just wanted to share with you the new logo I recently finished for my World Of Fossils website (I said previously that I would try to get it done by the end of 2017... But it's gonna take longer than that, because I basically have to restart. At first I was using Weebly, a simple drag-and-drop, but I decided to actually move on to my own domain and program everything using HTML, CSS and others. I'm lucky that my ICT teacher is helping me. So it's gonna take quite some time still before the website is finished I'm afraid.) Anyways, so here is the logo. I watermarked it for copyright safety issues (as it's going publicly online, I'm scared that someone might steal the logo and claim it as their own). So, some info about it: the programs I used were Inkscape and Paint.net. The globe in the middle is a reconstruction of Pangea. The three fossils are, from left to right: a trilobite Gerastos tuberculensis from Morocco (bought), a cowshark tooth Notorhynchus cepedianus from Calvert Cliffs (traded), and a scallop Mimachlamys varia from the Zandmotor (found). All fossils from my collection. The drawings are made from actual pictures of the fossils. I quite like it, let me know what you think of it! Best regards, Max
  10. Bivalve "scallop" Peru

    Hi I recently obtained this specimen at a street market in Peru. Its 5cm x 4cm. Looks scallop or oyster like. Any ideas on id and age? Regards Dennis
  11. Scallop

    Found on the beach near Matoaka Beach cabins. This specimen has several pearl buds, including some that developed around predation holes.
  12. Scallop

    Chesapectin nefrens is an index fossil for the Drum Cliff Member of the Choptank Formation. This example is particularly nice because the interior is almost completely layered in pearl.
  13. Scallop

    This is an index fossil for the Drumcliffs Member of the Choptank Formation. Donated to the Delaware Museum of Natural History
  14. A great mailbox find

    Today I had a great surprise in my mailbox: some beautiful Nodipecten collierensis scallops, from Florida!!! Many of you know how much I love fossil seashells, so obviously I was eagerly awaiting these. Thank you so much to Rod @dalmayshun, from whom I got those little beauties as a gift! Max
  15. Scallop: fossil or not?

    Hi all, I found this partial scallop yesterday. I found it on the Acrocorinth, in Corinth (Greece). I'm not really looking after the species, even though obviously if someone can tell it it would be great. I'm more looking to see whether it is fossil or not. Here are my pro/con arguments: Pro: • thick and heavy • found at about 400m altitude • I had to dig it out of the dirt Con: • very colorful • shiny • no references of fossils being found here Anyone know if it is fossil or not? Thanks, Max Here are some more pics of it, when wet: And I also found this nearby. Looks like coral/bryozoan or something like that (I'm really not sure: this could easily be a concretion):
  16. A scallop: Mimachlamys varia

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A nice complete scallop from the Zandmotor, of good size too.
  17. Chesapecten

    A small specimen of this species, but a nice one. They get quite a bit larger. I have one pushing 160 mm wide but it is in poor shape.
  18. The friend I fossil hunt with knows I had a desire for a large scallop, so 2 weeks ago we went looking along the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. Although the river level is controled by the corps of engineers and has much less fluctuation than the Peace River, it was a bit low...fortunately for us. These are some of my favorite finds. We spent about half a day in our kayaks checking out the banks, and digging here and there. Although I found several nice shells simply lying on the bottom sand. Besides these I found several nice pieces of turtle, several other shells to add to my collection and some nice coral. My friend found a nice lion's paw with top and bottom, entact...a first for us. We had gorgeous weather and plan to go again soon...nothing like the 4 degree weather my relatives are having in Wisconsin. I believe the murex is a gibbosus, unsure of the scallop
  19. This might prove very easy for more advanced fossil collectors to answer. In 2004, the floodwaters from Hurricane Gaston swept away a large amount of soil and clay from an existing stream near the backyard of our suburban house near Mechanicsville, Virginia, exposing a clay bed littered with numerous fossils. The turritella you see in the picture occurs the most frequently of all our finds, and the small clam fossils are a close second. We've recently started to find more of the kind of scallop fossil in the image, which we guessed was a chesapecten jeffersonius, Virginia's state fossil. I found one moonsnail fossil in the same clay, but it's the only fossil of that kind that we've found. Anyway, I'm not much of a geologist, so I haven't been able to precisely date these, or identify them with a specific epoch. I have what I think is a reasonable guess, but I'd like to get a specific date on just how many years worth of soil Gaston scrubbed away from our backyard. Thanks!
  20. Please help me with the below.. I found this pectenoid fossil and many more in the rumbles of an old mine in Attika area af Greece. Usually the terestrial fossils near the beach are of Pliocene or Pleistocene age. But this fossil comes from the digged earth of a mine and looks totally different than the Pliocene shells. It has Black color and the shape is also different.. It reminds me of Neithea species?? But Neithea were Jurassic era fossils... Could it be??? Size 3cm X 3cm.. Thank you very much in advance...!
  21. Neithea quinquecostata

  22. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongue shell (Glossus santamaria) from the same location. The curator was happy to tell me that after 40 years of displaying modern sea shells and fossils of dinosaurs, they are finally putting together an exhibit of fossilized sea shells. Who knows, maybe one or more of these will end up on public view?
