  2. Need help

    so i went to Orlando Science Center today for the Dino Digs exhibition but in Jurassic Ridge dig pit area i know that there is a Camptosaurus, Camarasaurus, Ceratosaurus and a Stegosaurus, but there is some species and genus of dinosaurs and other animals that i dont know what there like take for example the turtle shell, the alligator crocodile like animal fossil, the ankylosaur like fossil and that bone that i dont know what species does it belong to and that nest that i don't know which dinosaur does it belong to.
  3. What Species is this?

    Hello, Can anyone identify this Fossil? Thanks for the help.
  4. Unknown tyrannosaur

    Hi I found this and am wondering is this a new species of tyrannosaur I don’t think it’s albertosaurus libratus because it is in a collection with gorgosaurus libratus and albertosaurus sarcophagcus so if it was albertosaurus libratus there would not be any specimens named gorgosaurus libratus there are other specimens then just this tooth too any information? Thanks.
  5. Shark Tooth ID

    Hello, I found this tooth on a beach in New Zealand (north island) in 2006. I am wondering what it is from? It is about 10cm long by 6 cm wide (at top), and all white as can be seen.
  6. Collecting trilobites

    Hey! This might be the wrong thread/topic but here it goes. I recently started collecting different species of trilobites. It would have been interesting to see what species others have collected and whether you can refer to some species in a medium price range that is worth collecting. I have a desire to compile a list for myself with different species that I can follow. Someone who has / knows about fine trilobites that are worth collecting? These are the species I have collected so far: - Flexicalymene sp (morocco) - Flexicalymene retrorsa - Coltraneia oufatensis - Hollardops mesocristata - Hollardops sp. - Ductina vietnamica - Elrathia kingi - Different phacops sp. - andalusiana cambropallas - Some unidentified species (will be posting pictures, some of you probably know) Thanks!
  7. Species of ammonite?

    Could someone please ID the species of this ammonite? It was found at Lyme Regis. Also, could it be a rare species?
  8. Indeterminate tooth for sale

    Hello everyone. I saw this tooth being sold that was labeled as indeterminate, dinosaur tooth which is Moroccan and is 1.6cm. Does anyone have any suggestions or know what species it could be? Thanks.
  9. Beetle in Amber Tells About Mesozoic Land Shifts

    Tiny Beetle in Amber: Clues to Landmass Shifts This news is a little old ( I believe it is from October 30) but still very interesting.
  10. Teeth that are "easy" to id?

    Hi! Im wondering if there is dinosaur teeth that are relatively easy to id when it comes down to a specific species? Like a dinosaur with very odd or distinctive looking teeth that cant be mistaken to be anything else. I know that isolated teeth is often hard or impossible to id , but maybe there is some exception ? Best regards Patrik
  11. Discovering new species

    Out of curiosity, is it a practice for people to contact museums about fossils that can't be/can't quite be identified? I was just thinking about how many new unknown species must be just sitting around in individual's collections. They find new species all the time that are sitting in the museums collection, so imagine how many are of things that no museum has ever even taken a cursory look at. I don't mean like sending pictures of every vertebrae you can't pin to a specific species, even though that's more than enough in some cases, but at least with the less usual stuff, even though I'm sure there are plenty of individual teeth or single vertebrae of undiscovered species in individual collections. I saw an amazing full Devonian "shark" for sale, and that's what got me thinking. It would be nice if it were realistically possible to let museums just browse through collections, just in case. I know that once a fossil is out of context it loses significant useful information, but there'd still be potentially lots to gain from even those.
  12. Sorry for my poor English. I inherited a large trilobite from Morocco. Size 22 x 34 cm approx, weight 6 kilos. Does anybody know what species it is?
  13. The pdf in question is The Genus Pentremites and its Species by JM Weller, 1957. I can't get it through my university so I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me.
  14. Hello! I have added an Andara diluvii today and I have seen on fossilworks.org, that this species was/is also considered to belong to the genera Arca (original designation), Scapharca and Diluvarca. Nothing unusal, it is often the case, that one species was attributed to various genera since its discovery. Just out of curiosity, I would like to ask, if anybody knows which is "the species with the most genera"? Thanks! Franz Bernhard
  15. Hi all, in what situation would we use the following naming conventions? 1) Tyrannosaurid sp. 2) Tyrannosaurid indet. sp. OR Tyrannosaurid indet. (which is correct?) 3) cf. Tyrannosaurid sp.
  16. Scientific Name Pronunciations

    Hi all, How do you all go about pronouncing the scientific names of species that you find? So far, I've just gone with what sounds right and tweaked it based off what I hear others say. Most genus and species names are derived from Greek and Latin I believe, so looking at pronunciations in those languages may help. But is there any outside resource that you all use, or do you just say it how you see it? I'd hate to disrespect a shark by butchering his name!
  17. The Cockles: Common vs Lagoon

    Hi all, So the Cerastoderma genus has (in addition to a few other fossil species) two extant species: C. edule (common cockle0 and C. glaucum (lagoon cockle). Both of these species appear (both fossil and modern) here in the North Sea, and their Eemian fossils are common finds at the Zandmotor. Now I have always been told, and read in most of my books, that the difference between them is that: -> if you draw a vertical line from the umbo downwards, C. edule is pretty much symmetrical while C. glaucum will have one side more stretched out. As can be seen in the picture above. Pretty straightforward. Plus, this is what I explained in one of my old Instagram posts: But, while searching a bit around, I just now saw on the Wikipedia website a picture of a symmetrical cockle that they claim is C. glaucum. And WoRMS also has some pictures of some more or less symmetrical cockles for the lagoon cockle! So I am very confused... What is the difference then between the two species? Looking forward to your answers! Best regards, Max
  18. A bunch of different Glycymeris

    Hi all, So, here are a bunch of fossil bittersweet clams (Glycymeris) from different locations. So far they are all labeled as "Glycymeris" (which I'm pretty sure is correct). But I would really like to put a species name on each of them. Therefore I am reaching out to you all, because hopefully you will be able to help me sort this out! 1) Glycymeris from Westerschelde, Netherlands; from the late Pliocene (2.5 million years old). I'm thinking G. radiolyrata, but I'm not sure... 2) Glycymeris from Westerschelde, Netherlands; from the late Pliocene (2.5 million years old). G. obovata maybe? Or G. variabilis???
  19. Need help identifying shark tooth

    Hello folks. I bought this tooth about 10 years ago from a seller in Georgia. He had no clue as to what shark it came from. I just recently made a necklace out of it and felt like I should know what species it’s from. It also appears to be very old. Anyone have a clue? Very much appreciated!
  20. Hi, I have these two same sized Hildoceras, I'm thinking one is a Juvenile as can see the mouth border and one is a large one that has broken, would this be correct and would you say both specimens are the same ? Thanks.
  21. Is this a wolf skull?

    Hi everybody! I found this fossil online, and it the description says "wolf skull, of a young individual. Found near the remains of a mammoth" Can you tell if it is a wolf skull, and which species it is? What can you tell about the pictures?
  22. Ammonite species ID help requested

    Hey all, at the suggestion of others, I'm posting a photo of an ammonite fossil for assistance on species. This ammonite was unearthed by my father in 1972 in Shasta County CA. It measures 25 1/2 inches long by 20 inches tall. Any suggestions and help with its species and rarity is greatly appreciated. I get that it is not a complete specimen but hoping someone can help, Shannon
  23. Brachiopod? Bivalve?

    I found this nice brachiopod/bivalve shell fossil during my trip this year to Okinawa. I believe it is cenozoic in age. I would like to identify the species. I successfully chipped it out of the rock- no, more like it popped out itself- and here's the photo.
  24. Belemnite species

    Following on from a post in the questions forum, I was trying to identify this species of belemnite that I picked up on Friday from the Oxford Clay at Whittlesey, and learn generally how to identify species myself, rather than squeak 'thunderbolt' excitedly. It struck me as unusual partly because its shape is different from most of the belemnites I see in the Oxford Clay, but also because of the strange white coating. Aragonite is preserved at the site, and I thought perhaps it had aragonite around the calcium carbonate rostrum. Sadly it broke as I extracted it from the clay. It is conical, depressed, very acute and has a deep groove. I was using Fossils of the Oxford Clay to identify it, but although it is most similar to Belemnopsis bessina, I then decided it couldn't be because it is not hastate. But rereading the description it does say it can be weakly hastate, and it might be. Also in favour of this specimen being this species is the flattened apex and kidney shaped transverse section caused by the deep groove. I was possibly overthinking things. It would be reassuring to have other people's input Other features include a strange ridge on the reverse. Not seen that before. Also, just for fun, an 8mm belemnite. I'm not expecting to ever identify it, but it's cute and I thought I'd share.
  25. Hello I found a very distinctive belemnite while fossiling on Friday, and want to learn to identify the species myself, and hopefully identify all of the more complete ones I have collected. I used this resource http://www.bgs.ac.uk/discoveringGeology/time/fossilfocus/Belemnite.html to classify its features, and looked at Fossils of the Oxford Clay by Martill and Hutson to try and find it. Unfortunately only six species are identified and this isn't one of them. I looked in British Mesozoic Fossils from the Natural History Museum, and while this has Jurassic Belemnites, they are too early. Trundling around online hasn't gotten me any further. I'm trying to be more systematic in learning about my fossils, and was wondering how others approached first learning about specific species, and if there are any resources you would recommend? And if anyone knows of a monograph on Oxford Clay belemnites, please let me know
