  1. Two Urban Fossils

    Hi!! Two mystery fossils on a wall in San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain). Other fossils in the same rock are Neridea. In the first photo, I wonder about the little "cells" that can be seen. Is this coral or something?? Looks different from other corals I've seen, and the shape is so strange! The second photo is a large shell? A rudist? A gastropod? Thanks for your help!!! :-) Elizabeth
  2. Urban Fossil ID

    Hi! First time posting! :-) I've been hunting around for "urban fossils" in my city. I'm really used to seeing rudists everywhere, and whenever I come across anything else (like a piece of coral or a gastropod) I get excited. Today I saw something I had supposed was a gastropod shell section (now I'm not so sure), but it has a peculiar design, and I wonder if anyone can tell me what this design is. It seems to be some kind of internal structure in the shell? I'm attaching two photos of a close up of two different specimens and then a broader picture of another part of the slab, in case anything else in there might give people hints. The photos were taken in Donostia, Spain. I can't really say where the rock was quarried, but I guess somewhere in Spain? I'd love to hear your take on it! (Both on the "internal structure" and what kind of creature this might be) Thanks :-) Elizabeth
  3. Ammonites

    Hi Everyone! I have these wonderful Ammonites for about 15 years now and I would like to have their ID. Also an estimated value. Each of them is about 5 kg. and as shown in the picture, 41 cm. Thank you so much. Sergio.
  4. Mesozoic unknown

    Dear TFF-members, Can anyone help me identify the fossils in the photographs below? I have trouble identifying the concentric patterns that are visible on these (apparently hollow?) shell-like fragments. They were found in the Pyrenees, Spain. The formation in which they were found is Mesozoic in age, most likely Jurassic. Note these are outcrop photographs, so I cannot make additional images to aid identification, unfortunately. Thanks for any feedback you may be able to provide. Kind regards, Tim
  5. Hi I’m wondering if these are real? And if they are, are they actually from Spain?
  6. Good afternoon folks. I have a crab (Zanthopsis dufouri) from Spain that I've been prepping/detailing and came across something in it's claw. I am wondering if anyone can tell me if it was the crab's last meal or something I should remove? The crab still has one eye and one antenna so I'm thinking it's possible it could have been eating when it was covered. Comments are appreciated.
  7. Partially articulated find from Spain allows estimates of size, age, and maturity of this shark. Very large, long lived shark. https://phys.org/news/2020-04-giant-teenager-shark-dinosaur-era.html
  8. Dalatias licha.jpg

    From the album My collection of recent shark teeth

    Species: Dalatias licha (Kitefin shark) Orgin: Spain (Atlantic ocean) (general) body length: 1,2-1,8m Diving depth: ≤1800m
  9. Hello, in the Internet I saw an offer that was declared as "Gulper shark" for sale. After some research, this cannot be true and in my opinion it would be the jaw of a kitefin shark. I tried to put everything from the offer on one sheet so that it would be easier for you to help me. What do you think, which shark does this jaw belong to? The jaw is about 10cm wide and from Spain (Mediterranean Sea or Atlantic ocean) Thank you in advance and best regards from Germany. I hope, you can help me with this.

  13. WARNING! Fossil Exports from Morocco

    Well, i did hear a while ago that Morocco were thinking of becoming more serious on their 'cultural heritage' laws. I hope this is just an isolated case from the Spanish side and not the beginning of a trend. https://www.moroccoworldnews.com/2020/01/291089/spanish-airport-moroccan-fossils/
  14. Plant, fern?

    Is there a way to identify this plant? Looks like plant leaves, but I am unsure of the species. Does anyone know?
  15. Help to identify

    Please can someone help identify pictured fossil. We found 2 of similar shape, with outer shape resembling a stingray, but the spine in the middle seems to be a much simpler structure then that of a stingray
  16. Inclusions in paving slabs

    I have just gotten back from a two week holiday in Majorca, Spain. We stayed in a self catering apartment. The area around the swimming pool was paved with what looks like sandstone slabs to me. There were shell fragments in all of them. Most were very indistinct, but there was a little detail in in some. No idea where these slabs would have been sourced from. Are these actually fossils??
  17. Can you ID this one?

    Hello again friends. I've found this while hiking at about 1800 m. a.s.l. in Santiago-Pontones (Jaen, Spain), in a place which I believe is quaternary. I've not been able to find it in the local literature. Now I only have this picture (I have more but they are dark and not useful), the rock is limestone and is wet, the fossil is conic, I'll post more pictures if necessary. The ruler is in cm. Thank you.
  18. Help me ID this

    I found this near a river in La Matea (Jaen, Spain) the zone is predominantly mesozoic and the rock is limestone. I'm not sure if it's a fossil or some kind of formation. I have two similar specimen, is like a cylinder that goes from one side to the other of the rock, in one of the images I've partially removed some of the rock. Thank you.
  19. New Spinosaurid from Spain

    A new Spinosaurid has been described from Spain's, Arcillas de Morella Formation (upper Barremian) , Vallibonavenatrix cani. Since this Spinosaurid has affinities to those in North Africa and may assist us in identifying material from Morocco. Paywalled https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667119301302

  24. Help identifyng these ammonite species

    Hi, I found these ammonite specimens in the Oxfordian Ammonitico Rosso facies from the Baleriac Islands, Spain. I know that the preservation state is quite poor but I would like to get some help identifyng the genus and species. I am not familiar with ammonite description but here you have a very basic description of what I see: Specimen 1: No ribs, oxycone/discocone, involut, carinate? Specimen 2 (Taramelliceras sp?): two pair of ribs (primary and secondary), oxycone/discocone, involut Specimen 3: No ribs, discocone, carinate? Specimen 1
  25. Found on northern Spain Beach

    I found this bone while walking a beach in northern Spain back in January. It is about 5" (12.5 CM) long. The smaller end is somewhat rounded off but it doesn't look broken. In other words, I don't think the bone was much longer than it is now. Does anyone have any idea what it is? I have been told it might be a calcaneum from an ice age artiodactyl? Agree? Thank you in advance for your help. Rich
