  1. Fossil found in stream in Eureka, MO, USA. About 1 inch.
  2. Need help with identifying fossil

    Found fossil in stream in Eureka, Missouri, USA. Does anyone know what the fossil may be? It is about 1/2 inch.
  3. Hello, I found these, I'm guessing bivalves, and was just wondering if anybody could tell me a little about them? Sorry there's no scale, the larger one is about 2cm, and the smaller about half a centimetre. I found them in Northamptonshire, UK. Thanks.
  4. is this a cephalopod fossil ?

    Hi this is matthew again today in the creek I found a strange looking fossil I think it might be a cephalopod but i'm not sure can anyone be able to tell me what it is ? here is a photo
  5. hi everyone this is matthew again today in the creek 2 sets of different kinds of brachiopod fossils here are 2 photos
  6. I need help identifying these fossils found in central Texas. Specifically, the conical shaped one on matrix in front of the sphere, and the two immediately to the right of the sphere. The conical shaped fossil looks as if it might have spiral structure, but may simply be slanted segments. The two shells on the right are the same as each other, but one is face-up and the other is face-down.
  7. Scale? Shell? Scute?

    Found in Venice FL, in a mixed shell andarine life pile. Not sure what it is, maybe someone does. Thanks in advance
  8. I found this in a gravelly area where I usually find a lot of crinoids and shells and coral. I also find many goniatites in this area as well. It’s in West Michigan near Holland. I’ve never seen anything like it before though and I’m having trouble figuring out what it’s even from.
  9. Scute? Shell?

    I found this in a mixed pile of shell and random marine fossils in Venice, FL. I thought it was a turtle shell when I originally grabbed it, but cleaned it off and noticed the shiny mystery extruding from the top. I'm not certain what it is, so I leave up to you. Thanks in advance
  10. Beauty Brachiopods NJ Cretaceous

    While on my way fishing today, I stumbled upon a creek that looked shelly, pulled over and lo and behold found these two little sweet treats! They are fully intact with both sides connected. I believe they are Choristothyris plicata @The Jersey Devil
  11. two sided rock full of brachiopods

    Hi everyone this is matthew again today in the creek I found a rock that I split apart and the rock was full of brachiopods here is a photo of the fossil
  12. NJ Stream Ammonite

    A few months back I was exploring a new stream in New Jersey and stumbled upon some matrix where I found this Ammonite. I am not too familiar with NJ Ammonites. Can anyone help identify this particular species? I thought it was pretty cool.
  13. Unknown Acquisition

    I bought a small fossil collection that contained several Erismatopterus levatus and it also contained several unidentifiable and unlabeled items, in particular this piece. It reminds me almost of a placoderm skull plate, but I honestly don't have any idea. There's area of denticles on the side of the fossil.
  14. hi everyone this is matt again today I cracked open a rock and found a lot of brachiopod shells in it. it was loaded with shells here is a photo
  15. Ammonite negative impression

    Hello everyone, I recently started to consider prepping some of the ammonites I own but something’s really been puzzling me. When I’m splitting rocks at Lyme Regis, the ammonites have a negative impression which is sort of orange but when prepping, you can see that it’s a very thin layer that flakes off. I’ve seen many preps that have left this on and many that have taken it off. What is this orange layer? Is it shell? And should it be left on while prepping? I’ve left a picture found on the web below. Many Thanks
  16. Hi Everyone, I recently broke open a rock on my property and found this interesting fossil. I have tried to identify it but can’t find anything that looks similar. I know it's a long shot for an ID, but more knowledgeable thoughts on what it could be would be very much appreciated. It was found in Missouri, Jackson County, north of highway 350, south of highway I-70, east of 435, and west of 470. The rock was dug out when digging a basement and subsequently cracked apart and the fossil was within. Basement location is atop glaciated ridge. I am guessing (serious amateur here) that the rock would be somewhere in the Late Pennsylvanian Stage? The red circle in this map below is the approximate location it was found. (http://www.kgs.ku.edu/Publications/Bulletins/83/07_up.html) Here are the pictures… Thanks in advance for any info!
  17. Strange shell ? ID help .

    I found that shell today on my local beach. I hope to know its kind and epoch . it is 6.5 cm tall and 4.5 cm wid and many thanks in advance .
  18. ID on a fossil from Decorah Formation, MN

    I found this plate near in the upper decorah formation Minnesota (Ordovician period limestone). These chunks are frequently littered with trilobite bits and fragments but this lookk a little odd to me. It has a "knob" or bump structur on one side and a gradual bend on the other. Its still partially covered by coral and debris but most of it is exposed. Any ideas?
  19. Hi everyone, My name is Dean, I live In Bath UK where we build a lot of buildings from white lias stone. We often find a lot of shell and ammonite fossils while dressing the stone, Recently we were digging a trench through a while lias bed in the middle of a field for a build in bath and I found a stone which was made up from pretty much all shell fossils, I bring them home for my little girl. I am an absolute newbie to fossil hunting and after browsing through your site I don’t even know if it’s worthy of posting! But my little one has asked me to find out what it is so here I am. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Hello. I found this very cool Chesapecten Shell covered in Barnacles. Feels very strong. There are cracks in the underside of the shell and I was wondering if there is something clear and strong that I could apply to stabilize the fractures? Thank You!
  21. Fossil Shell?

    I live in Flower Mound, Texas, Denton County. I find many fossilized shells in the ground as I garden and stuff. The other day, this one popped up and looked different enough that I am curious if it is a shell or something else. The one surface is much smoother than I see with the other "clam" shell fossils I find. The sides also appear to be thinner than usual. Thanks for any help.
  22. Large partial shell?

    I found this today at NSR. I tried to find the rest of it in the general area for an hour. No luck. Any help is appreciated.
  23. Is this tortoise shell?

    One last piece for today as I clean up my finds from my trip to Myrtle Beach. I have a few pieces like this and I think they are tortoise. Just wanted to confirm. Thoughts?
  24. Unopened Chesapecten Shell ID?

    We were in the creek today and found this Chesapecten Shell that is still closed. We’ve never found one of these with both sides, unopened. Can anyone ID the type of Chesapecten? Is it Madisonious? Thank You!
  25. Florida Fossil Shell ID Needed

    This fossil shell was found on Marco Island beach (Naples, Florida). Any help identifying what it is would be greatly appreciated.
