  1. More Trilobites from Sweden

    These are also from the Alum Formation at Raback, Vastergotland, Sweden. Upper Cambrian. But I have no idea what these ones are. They're in a very dark grey shale. Very small - up to 3 mm wide. Thank you very much everybody for looking and/ or providing assistance. @piranha
  2. Trilobites from Sweden

    Wins from an auction hosted by my friend @Kasia These bits are in a medium grey limestone found at Raback, near Kinnekulle, Vastegotland, Sweden, so are probably from the Upper Cambrian part of the Alum Shale Formation. Maybe Peltura scaraboides? Or is there not enough left to get close to an id? Max 5 mm wide and 4 mm long. All specimens are on the same rock. The scale's in mm and is partially obscuring a bit seen better below : Not really expecting too much from these tiny fragments, but any help or blind guesswork very much appreciated. @piranha @Johannes @Dromiopsis But anyone else more than welcome to comment too Thank you.
  3. Can somebody help me identify this fossil?

    This fossil was found in Gotland, Sweden and i have no idea what it is...Maybe a type of coral?

  5. Silurian coral from Gotland

    last summer I went to Gotland, Sweden, which is famous for Silurian sea life: there are some cliff by the west side of Gotland, and i found a lot of coral fossil there first one i found seems to be Planalveolites fougti and then stromatoporoids then Heliolites also Favosites also some Tetracoralla: and pieces of Crinoidea: and some other stuff: When I look at these fossil, I actually felt went back to Silurian, quite amazing (the picture has watermark because i posted it on another forum first)
  6. Fossil ID shrimp?

    Found this in south Sweden. Looks to me like a shrimp of some sort. Anyone recognize what kind? Thanks for the look!!
  7. Hey I was hoping someone could help me find a PDF copy of a relatively old paper... Troedsson, G.T. (1924). On Crocodilian Remains from the Danian of Sweden. Lunds Universitets Årsskrift, Ny följd. Avdeling 2, 20, 1–75. Part of it contains the description of a very well-preserved skull of Thoracosaurus "scanicus", which would be very relevant for a research paper I'm working on right now. Thanks in advance! -Christian
  8. Trip to Sweden

    Today I would like to describe my trip to Sweden. Since I visited several locations, it’s going to be quite long – but I hope reading my report is going to be interesting enough for you to last until its end . I include only a few pictures of fossils from each location, because I’m still in the process of splitting the rocks I brought with me. First a few general impressions about Sweden – it’s a super super green and clean country, with lots of beautiful natural reserves and naturally – fossil sites. I was hoping the weather in September would be still good enough to do some fossil hunting and outdoor sightseeing, and we were really lucky, because although the temperature dropped a few times below 10 C, at least it didn’t rain We took the ferry from Świnoujście to Ystad and from there I went to the first location – Brantevik. There is the place where the boundary between the Cambrian and Ordovician is located, so on the beach you can find rocks with fossils from both periods. The location looks like this: And here are some of the finds: The next site was actually the “youngest” among all the locations I visited – it was Ignaberga, an open-pit Cretaceous quarry. I guess it is still operating, but fortunately I was there on Sunday, so nobody was there. It is very easily accessible – and the slopes are literally covered with brachiopods
  9. Tiny fossils?

    Hi, I was out looking for fossils at Kinnekulle in Sweden and found these in the slate. I'm wondering if they may possibly be very small fossils? each one measures approximately 3 millimeters. Anyone know what they might be?

  14. Sponge on a stick...

    Hi again, Didn't think I should bother you guys with another sponge, but this is a bit peculiar and I can't find anything about sponges on sticks? This was found in the Kristianstad Basin, Cretaceous period. It is heavily erroded and mineralized, but probably a sponge. It seems to have a circular growth around what seems to be a stick of some sort. They seem proprotional, so I figure they grew together, but they might not be the same spieces? (the stick + the sponge). The images does not make the fossil justice, but it is a very voluminoes sponge with bulges that reminds of glass sponge. The stick is circular in the bottom and more flatt in the top. It might not have reached tremendous heights...? Questions: Would a sponge grow on a stick? Why would a sponge need to reach height if it is not drawing energy from sunlight? How would a sponge like this pump water? I can't find any "sucking holes" Shouldn't a sponge with sticks be more branching? More than one branch? All the best/ Linus
  15. @Linus told me a wonderful story about treasuring precious times with the people you love... whether or not you find what you think you are looking for. I immediately realized I had another similar, WONDERFUL stone. It appears to be “chock full” of interesting flora and fauna! @Linus, I truly hope this is also a Skanör fossil!
  16. Hi again. Location Sweden, Kristianstad, upper or lower cretaceous, underwater, sponge. This one I think I've ID'd, but there are a few things that doesn't feel comfortable. I think it is a Siphonia pyriformis. But there are a few problems. 1. there are two indentations, both in top and bottom. (and not one in top and an extruded stalk in bottom). 2. The size is quite oversized compared to the Siphonia Pyriformis I've seen on images of. This has bowlingball size. 3. There seems to be a wore down cushion pattern that doesn't fit with Siphonia Pyriformis at smaller sizes. Best regards/ Linus
  17. Hi, I think this thing looks stunning. The shape is gorgeous. And big! Location is Sweden, Kristianstad. Period should be cretaceous, upper or lower. Probably grew quite deep under water? All other fossils so far on this particular location have been sponges. I've gone through all sponges for the cretaceous period at cretaceous.de, but haven't found anything that looks like it? In the bottom center, there is a mark that looks like it been attached to something. On the top, there are grooves, as if something perhaps was attached to the top? Or maybe not? This piece also have other fossils ingrown. Some of the other fossils I've found was ingrowns from similar items, and not burrow casts as I initially thought. In the bottom center there seems to be a flower shape with 5 bulges. I would be grateful for any help! All the best/ Linus Edit: I think it looks something like this when complete?
  18. Swedish ammonite?

    Hello, I recently recieved an unidentified ammonite as a present and was told it came from Gotland, Sweden. However, I cannot find any information on ammonite finds from Gotland, and it looks a lot like a Madagascan Perisphinctes to me. Any thoughts? The scale is in centimeters.
  19. What kind of fossil is this?

    Does anyone know what kind of fossil this is? Found on Ivön from the Creatous period!
  20. https://imgur.com/Si8x5Ve This fossil was found near the gate of Lergrav while I was on summer vacation in 2016. A somewhat famous rock formation on the north eastern side of the island of Gotland in the Baltic sea. These rock formations are known to locals as a Rauk. The main fossil is roughly 5 cm long brick red in colour with a grey segment from another individual about a centimetre long also located in the same stone. As Gotland is mainly made up from sedimentary rock from the ordoviscian and silurian mainly limestone that is when I assume the fossil is from. The fossil is seemingly made up of rows of square segments.
  21. Fossils in Swedish limestone

    Hi Guys, My Swedish limestone floors are full of fossils. Mostly ortoceratit but I have a couple I haven't been able to identify. First on out is the one I call "the tooth" or "The middle finger". The second one is what I'm calling the Jelly fish. Anyone know what fossils theese are? Attaching a overview picture of the floors aswell, perhaps someone sees something nice.
  22. ID Request - Teeth

    ID Request - Anyone know what these fossilized teeth might belong to? It measures 19 x 9 x 9 mm. I believe it’s one premolar and two molars from a herbivorous mammal (pre last glacial period?). I found it inside the chalk cliffs of Ven island, in the Øresund strait between Sweden and Denmark.
  23. The photo below shows a section of a small piece of Cambrian material from Kinnekulle, Sweden which I recently acquired. The material is, I believe, anthroconite or orsten (limestone) found in lenses in Alum Shale. The disarticulated trilobite shields that populate the surface are from the tiny Agnostus pisiformis. My question is this: What is the very thin white layer that covers parts of the trilobites - both the pieces where the dorsal/convex side of the shell is exposed and where the ventral/concave side of the shell is exposed? Any ideas would be much appreciated.
  24. Had a wonderful day at the Natural History Museum in Stockholm , especially as I spotted some fossils on display from my home town of Peterborough in the UK.
