  1. No idea about what this is.

    Recently re discovered a bunch of these things that we got from the Canary Islands. They were all washed up on the beaches and they do not look stricktly geological to me and looks kind of like some kind of modern calcified organism or trace of one. I stumbled upon a book at some point, I believe it was called Darwin's Fossils that said these were some kind of remains of algae that have fossilized, but when I looked that up there was no evidence I could find supporting this claim, maybe someone else knows what these things could be? Any new insight is appreciated, Thank you.
  2. MIOCENE ISLAND

    I should have posted this long ago, but am going to do it now, in the hope that then it is behind me and then I can look forward to future adventures. Due to ill health from 2012, finances and responsibilities, I have been unable to do any personal collecting except for this one wonderful trip which reminded me that I've still got it in me. In October 2016 wifey and I were relaxing in a bar on Tarifa beach, the southernmost point in mainland Europe, located at the south-western corner of Spain, opposite Tangier, the two Pillars of Hercules that are the entrance to the Mediterranean from the Atlantic. I noticed an island connected to the mainland by a man made causeway. it had a lighthouse on and some ruins, so I thought that being only a little distance, I'd go and explore. Here is the location, to the left of the picture is the Mediterranean, to the right, the Atlantic. There are no more location pics, I'm afraid, as wifey can't be prised away from bars very easily and she has the camera phone, but the island was closed to visitors without a guide or permit as it's a place for protected birds, the lighthouse and Napoleonic fortress ruins. But to the left of the causeway was a small beach with exposed rocks and even a little notice board explaining that the rocks were a Miocene oyster bed 5 to 10 million years old. My interest was aroused so I clambered about the beach and found the fossils in the next post. Very pleased with myself, I was, especially as I had no tools and the rock was really seriously hard. Had to use other bits of rock as hammer and chisels. And my breathing held out pretty well. I can still do this! Life's Good.
  3. fossil worms?

    First of all thank you for accepting me as a member. I have a fossil that I hope catches your attention. I think they are Miocene worms. They belong to the Vallès-Penedés. What is strange is that they are in such good condition, I think they are unique. I await your opinion.
  4. Almerarhynchia virgiliana

    New genus and new species first described by Dr. Sebastian Calzada Badia in: C a l z a d a , S., 1974. Almerarhynchia n. gen. virgiliana n. sp. del Maastrichtiense de Figols, Prepireneo catalan. Acta Geológica Hispanica, 9 (3): 92-97. http://digital.csic.es/handle/10261/7365. ID of the specimen confirmed by Dr. Calzada.
  5. Hello. Good evening to everyone from my favorite Forum! Unfortunately I do not have the slightest intimacy with coral fossils, so I do not know if they are fake or whether they are true, whether they are common or whether they are rare. Precisely because of my complete ignorance of the matter, I have resolved, please, to ask for your help. So I basically have 2 questions: 01 - Are they real? 02 - The seller describes as fossil corals of the species PLASCOMILLIA VIDALI, from the Late Cretaceous (SANTONIENSE), discovered in Lerida, Spain, aged 83 to 87 million years. Is this information correct? Are these 3 corals: Coral - 1 Coral - 2 Coral - 3 @Tidgy's Dad

  8. Eocene Fossilized wood?

    Hello everyone, I went to a fossil hunting trip in Alicante, Spain and I found this weird shaped rock. I dont know if it could be fossilized wood or just a funny shaped rock. It's from the eocene and the place around it was full of nummulites. You could also find some echinoids and gastropods but more rarely. Thanks for your help!
  9. New Nothosaur from Spain

    Just got this paper from ResearchGate.. A new Spanish nothosauroid (Paludidraco multidentatus); published 2 days ago. Thought the marine reptile fans might want a copy Cranial remains of the holotype and paratype specimens here's the paper : Paludidraco_paper.pdf hope you like it! -Christian
  10. Jellyfish?

    Supposed to be from the Cretaceous, found in Mota del Cuevo (Spain). I think it may be a jellyfish... on a shell... Note the soft-looking round brownish double structure on the center. Between the two structures it looks transparent white. Underneath there is a shell. On top there is a stick-structure with another round structure of a different kind I think. What is it? Thank you!
  11. From the dinosaur coast of Spain this paper addresses the remains of a very large Meglosaurid. Possibly related to the large Torvosaurus reported from Portugal Rauhut OWM, Piñuela L, Castanera D, García-Ramos J, Sánchez Cela I. (2018) The largest European theropod dinosaurs: remains of a gigantic megalosaurid and giant theropod tracks from the Kimmeridgian of Asturias, Spain. PeerJ https://peerj.com/articles/4963/
  12. Hi there, I’m currently exploring the region of the cantabrian mountains in Spain south of Villamanin, in the aptly named cantabrian zone, but I’m struggling to identify this small trilobite I found on the las hiruelas road east of La Vid. Granted it’s only a pygidium exposed but I don’t want to risk damaging it for now. From the geological map I know it’s from the Furada/San Pedro formation which spans the Silurian to Devonian boundary but I can’t find any comparable images online. I’m hoping someone on here can help. Thanks for your time L.
  13. Shark tooth ?

    Hi Everyone! Fossil new guy here. Just recently moved to a beachside town in Spain. During my afternoon walk, I came across the "tooth" shown below. I'm located on the Atlantic side of Spain. The tooth was just mixed in with stones and shells along the shoreline. Any help would be great!
  14. The winter is over.

    Again with the lips stuck to the mud. It is a good position to meditate while collecting small corals. I remembered @Kim Texan and @Coco, they liked these little Astrocoenia numisma. The gastropod I think it's Solarium. If not, someone will correct me, for sure. We always bring a little friend of the corals at home. Nobody is perfect. I also remembered @HansTheLoser. GAB2, Hans, you know. By the way, Hans, summer is coming. Do not forget something you owe me. Greetings to all.
  15. Spanish Crab

    The seller wasn't sure if the Crab was found near Huesa which is south of the Pyrenees in northern Spain near the Canyons of the Sierra de Guara.

  19. Hi everyone. I recently visited a quarry at the north of Spain (more specifically a geographical area called "El Bierzo", famous for its fossils from the carboniferous era) and I found this one, which looks like tree bark with some particular marks. I have found several well preserved fossils at the same quarry but I will upload the pictures later. I have been looking for information about this one in particular but I haven't found out what type of tree it is, has anybody seen this before? Thank you very much!
  20. Marine Cretaceous fossil help ID

    Hello everyone! I found this fossil in Valencia, Spain. It's from the lower cretaceous but I cant be more accurate. I dont know what it is but I assume it's some kind of bivalve or gastropod but cant find the specie. I recorded a video and uploaded on youtube, hope u can see it well, if not let me know and I will try to show you better. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
  21. Annularia Sphenophylloides

    From the album Plants

    Annularia Sphenophylloides from the Upper Carboniferous of Spain.
  22. Vertebrate findings or geology??

    Hi I have currently had some trouble indentifying some ichnofossils from this middle miocnen place, but I have ended up facing a big dilemma... There are some pieces which do not have bony structure, at least on their surface , but I cannot identify with any ichnofossils type(pupal chambers, burrowings, galleries...). I have started to think actually whether or not I am facing vertebrate bones, although it has always been my last idea in mind. The facies is continental and there have been findings of turtles, mastodonts and some equids nearby. I do not want to related these pieces with them but I jaut dont think geology can erode in these forms so many rocks in a 10 square meters area... I post now some photos, and thanks in advance
  23. Dinosaur Eggshell ID

    I traded some fossils for a bunch of European dinosaur eggshells a few years back, a mix from France and Spain. However, I stupidly misplaced the labels for these two sets of eggshells and now have no idea which site they came from (they appear to be from two different sites, judging by the colouration). I know it's a long shot, but if anyone with an interest in European dinosaur eggshells could shed some light on where these eggshells came from, it would be much appreciated. All are around 2mm tick.
  24. Shark teeth n3

    Hi again, everybody ! I bring you another tooth, this I found in Spain, specifically near Seville, far from the sea. I think Isurus but I am not expert opinions? measures 8x6 cm
  25. Unidentified galleries

    Hi everyone! I'm having some trouble classifying some ichnofossils which date back to the middle Miocene. They come from lacustrine/low-energy continental waters. If it helps, I've already identified some other ichnofossils in the area such as Celliforma, Planolites, Psilonichnus, Scoyenia, Palaeophycus, Teisseirei, Camborygma... This first photos are gallery "dead ends" which from my point of view share many caracteristics and should be a recognised ichnogenera. They show striation lines in the ventral part, some kind of "leg dragging" This second set seems like pupation chambers to me. They share some characters with Rebuffoichnus but I don't know for sure what it may be
