  1. fossil museum(kids), horn coral?

    Here is my next one that, as best I can tell is mineralized/geode-type horn coral? Also found in the St. Louis area when I was a kid. Am I correct? thanks!! Bone
  2. Hi I heard there are two Judith River Formation Daspletosaur species, an earlier one and older, is this true? Because the Daspletosaurus specimen Sir William being an older species from 79 to 77.5 mya and possibly D.torosus, D.honeri or another new species being the younger Daspletosaur species from 77.5 to 75 mya. Or is it just one Daspletosaurus in the Formation?
  3. Thysanopeltis ID

    I bought this large semi disarticulated thysanopeltis trilobite on a bit of a whim. It arrived today and overall I'm quite pleased. I'm wondering if anyone can help point me to a species or can comment on the level of restoration. I believe the majority of the spines on (its) right hand side of the pydium are carved and painted. There's probably more restoration elsewhere (I expected as much when I bought it) but it's hard to tell. Any other opinions would be appreciated. Unfortunately I don't have any locality information, and as it was labeled as a cornuproetus I doubt the seller knows too much about it either.
  4. Crab species

    Good evening folks. I have several crab caprice that all look like the same species to me. Can anyone tell me if I'm correct and what species they are. Sorry, no information other than "some of Grandpa's rocks" .
  5. Hi I found this with the rest of my fossil replicas and was wondering if it could be a Rex tooth or another type of Tyrannosaur tooth. I don’t know if I can post this here or get an ID on it since it’s a replica but I got it at the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, Canada it’s a replica of one of there specimens. And I just wanted to know what it could be since it seemed strange to me on how skinny and long it is, Thank you!!
  6. Two Horn Coral species ID

    First picture is from shores of Lake Erie and I'm wondering if anyone can ID what species of horn coral this is. Second picture I'm looking for the same information. Thank you!
  7. What species of coral?

    Hi last year my moms friend went to Egypt and when she was there she found some fossils for me. This is one of them it’s unknown coral from the cretaceous of Egypt not too far from Cairo. Does anyone know what type or species of coral thanks!
  8. A blog from the Phil Currie Dinosaur museum talking about dinosaur generas and species https://dinomuseum.ca/2019/12/17/how-many-kind-of-dinosaurs-were-there/ @fossilsonwheels

    Hello, Can anyone identify this Fossil? Thanks for the help.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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
