  1. Need id on solnhofen fossil

    Found this small piece in Solnhofen. First thought it was just a fish bone but after prepping I don't know anymore. It has some structure on it that I have not seen before on fish bone although the material looks like fish bone. It is rather thin, just about 1 mm thick.
  2. Hello everybody Here are some fish all directly from Solnhofen. I bought these many years ago at the local fossil store in Solnhofen. No idea about species, I just can assure these fish are all from there Looking for any Dino teeth material (except Spino and Abelisauridae from Morocco) or rooted Mosasaur teeth (maybe even with a small jaw fragment?). I can trade more fish for one tooth If you want these fish, but feel your tooth is worth more, maybe we can still make a deal. Let us talk about it Be aware that I live in Germany, however shipping to the US or other parts of the world is no problem. Will check this once I know the destination, because of the weight. I can provide more close up pictures, no problem My pocket rule only has CM, sorry! Fish 1 Fish 2 Fish 3 Fish 4 Fish 5
  3. Fish head from Solnhofen

    Hello everybody, so right now I'm on my holiday and today I was on a trip to Solnhofen/Bavaria. Most famous for its fossils from the Tethys Ocean during the Jurassic period. I won't post photos of the Museum since there is alread a Topic with good pictures. (But there will be pictures from the museums in Munich and Berlin next week by me). But anyway: You can go and hunt there for fossils by yourself. It's pritty easy to crack these Limestones and you can find lots of Ammonoidea there. I was with a group there and basically everybody found a little Ammonoidea or a part of it. But I got lucky and was the only one finding a fish. Well just the severed head of a fish. Length of the head is around 2 cm (= 0.79 in). In the Solnhofen Museum is a big fossil with lots of little Leptolepides sprattiformis. There where some Leptolepides with missing bodys as well. The explanation was, that a predator was eating the fish but left only the heads. Since the length would fit and Leptolepides where really really common in the area and time period my best guess is a Leptolepides indet. (I really can't tell the diffrence between the two species, since they both lived in the same area). But Orthogonikleithrus indet. is also a suitable candidate. They look similar. Hard to tell the difference since there is no body. Any help is welcome
  4. Enigmatic Solnhofen reptile?

    So I was browsing through the Archaeopteryx lithographica records on FossilWorks; and in one of the three records (from Workerszell, Eichstätt), I notice the mention of an 'unclassified' reptile taxon "Rhacehosaurus gracilis". The only further information that was provided was the age range (150.8 to 145.5 Ma) and the geographical distribution. I looked elsewhere online (google scholar, ResearchGate...) for any other mention of the genus "Rhacehosaurus", and nothing else turns up. Do you people know about this enigmatic taxon? Is it some kind of invalid synonym or something? I'd love to know more about this..
  5. After my visit last week (http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/86063-my-little-trip-to-solnhofen/) This time I was at the visitor quarry in Solnhofen. It was very hard work and it was too hot but the finds arent too bad Its a pity that I couldnt find a fish but nevertheless I found some interesting things! Two pictures of the quarry: A beautiful 4 cm long Laevaptychus: A cuttlefish remain: with nice details (6 cm long): And my finds of the day: Two teeth Teeth arent that common in Solnhofen I assume, so I must had some serious luck The first one is 1.5 cm long and it seems to be a crocodile tooth. I think its a Steneosaurus tooth: I like the root The second isnt that big with a length of 0.7 cm. I cant determine this one... Maybe also a crocodile tooth? Maybe someone can help me a bit with determining? Thanks for your help! Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
  6. My little trip to Solnhofen

    Last weekend I used my free time to visit two locations in the area of Solnhofen. Solnhofen is quite a famous fossil location, so many of you will probably know it. During the Late Jurassic, this area was an archipelago at the edge of the Tethys Sea and it preserves a rare assemblage of fossilized organisms. The most famous fossil from there is the Archaeopteryx. At the beginning I was very unsure if it really make sense to visit that location, because I often heard bad things like that its very hard to find something there . And I have to say that it was indeed very hard to find something but nonetheless I found a few fossils and it was much fun. I was firstly for about 3 hours in the visitor quarry Blumenberg. Here is the quarry: It makes sense to bring a shovel with you because you firstly have to put away all the debris before you can extract larger plates. The most common fossil there is the crinoid Saccocoma. Here are some examples: (about 2 cm big) Another very common fossil are coprolites from fishes/ammonites. They are called Lumbricaria: (3-4 cm long)

  10. Solnhofen - Tours?

    Hello, I hope this finds you well. I was wondering if there is someone out there that does fossil hunting tours in Solnhofen region? I've been to the quarries where you can pay to collect, but wonder if there is access to the others such as Painten. kind regards Rodney
  11. So most of the Christmas decorations--at least the outside ones are down! and I got sidetracked again when I went into the garage to put the decorations away. Started to move fossil boxes around and found myself looking in the dang things...I was thinking some of this stuff needs to go in a case and started to photograph some of it and make sure the labels were with them. I've still got some work to do but thought I'd show you much of it...could be a few pieces on the other side of the garage but here's the bulk of what I have from Germany... This collection started many years ago and as I've never been there to collect personally my distant relatives immigrated from there and another good friend influenced me with her German collections so thru Gifts, trades and purchases here you go. Hoping there is something in here you havent seen before. File names have Genus and location. Some small vertebrates... An amphibian and similar sized small fish. Most of a dragonfly Some crustaceans from Solnhofen Some plants Some belemnites
  12. Dear Forum Members, I will gladly exchange Solnhofen fossils (there are several floating crinoids plates of different sizes, coprolites, aptychi of ammonites) and Polish Oxfordian ammonites (from Ogrodzieniec quarry) for Ordovician cystoids or Jurassic crinoids. If you need more detailed pictures, please send me a private message Regards, Kasia

    Pleuropholis laevissima Agassiz, 1834 Upper Jurassic Tithonian Solnhofen Germany Unspectacular looking fish, but very rare.
  14. Juvenile Allothrissops salmoneus. There are two Allothrissops species: A. salmoneus from the Solnhofen lithgraphic limestones in Bavaria and A. mesogaster from the slightly older deposits in Nusplingen, Baden-Württemberg. The small dorsal fin is located behind the anal fin.
  15. Thrissops formosus AGASSIZ, 1833

    Thrissops formosus, a member of the family Ichthyodectidae (literally "fish-biters"), was a swift-swimming predatory fish with streamlined body and deeply clefted caudal fin from the Lithographic Limestone deposits around Solnhofen, Germany. Dorsal and anal fins are broad based and attached behind the body's midpoint. The anal fin is diagonally attached slightly before the dorsal fin.

  17. Hi folks, i hope, this is the correct forum for this kind of issue.. A colleague from the german "steinkern-forum" asked me to share this topic. Last weekend, at the fossil fair in Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Germany (formerly know as petrefacta), a rare and precious fossil has been stolen. It´s a fossil fish (Turbomesodon relegans) from the jurassic of Solnhofen, it measures about 48 mm in length. If you see this fossil on ebay, a fossil fair or somewhere else, please send me a pm. If you're connected with facebook, please contact haufwerk.com Thanks, Nils

  21. Hi all ! A little more than a year ago, I had the opportunity to finally travel to Solnhofen (Germany). Thanks to my brother, who works in Germany, and gave me the opportunity to dedicate a small part of the Christmas holidays to enjoy the magnificent Upper Jurassic of Solnhofen. I have to admit, all types of the "konservat lagerstätte" have always made me fall in love. I am always fascinated with some exceptional preservation! For many years, I had been waiting for the opportunity to meet, FINALLY! to the Sciurumimus and Archaeopteryx Now, I can sleep much calmer, now that I have looked at them face-to-face! Apart from these two jewels, I was able to enjoy the magnificent collection that they possess in the Museum of Solnhofen. Which I recommend visiting ("Förderverein Bürgermeister Müller Museum Solnhofen") I remember that day, the German cold was tremendous! Still I tried to visit the outcrops, and below 20 cm of snow, I enjoyed opening some frozen lithographic limestones. Although without much success more than a mold of ammonites and half pneumonia! How cold it was! But it was a Great Trip !. Here I share it with you!
