Mahnmut posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHello together, I am looking for papers about the relation between modern amphibians and stem tetrapods (this time not for model building purposes but for an academic paper I write on amphibians as model organisms ( I have the medical topics covered but wanted to include a bit of palaeontology). Also, is there any hint in the fossil record on limb regeneration like some modern amphibia can do? Thanks, J
Ahoi, I just finished a model of Dunkleosteus the lazy way, because I don´t have that much time these days. Lazy way means: Skull is a bought model from kaiyodo dinotales, postcranial is a skeletal drawing by Scott Hartmann I modified slightly and printed on some transparent foil. Like the outcome. It is quite small though, only 15 cm, representing a meager 3m in my chosen scale. can anyone tell what the other two are? both recent species, one handmade after a photograph, the other 3d printed from ct data. As I don´t know if I can add tags after posting , I just added the ones I may put in this thread if I ever find the time to build them. After all my Whales, other marine Mammals , Birds and Reptiles I thought it would be nice if I could include some more Reptiles and "Amphibians" (?) If it crossed the border between land and sea, its likeness shall be built by me -some day. -Placodus -Cyamodus -Mastodonsaurus -Tiktaalik -Ichthyostega -Diplocaulus Aloha, J
corporateidentity posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHello everyone. I am an incredibly novice fossil hunter from Pennsylvania. From where I live, it is heavy Carboniferous territory. One of the items on my bucket list is to eventually find something from a temnospondyl, even if it is nothing more than a trackway or even better - a bone fragment! Would anyone be willing to share with me advice on what to look for / or what has helped them in finding anything from a Temnospondyl or Lepospondyl? Do they appear more in certain rocks than others? I live in the Pittsburgh area, near where Fedexia was discovered ten years ago. I'm hoping to eventually find something related to Fedexia or another temnospondyli. From what I'm realizing, these little guys are hard to come by. Any advice? Thanks everyone!
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, At the recent time I live in Kursenai (Northern Lithuania) and work in Zagare (Joniskis district, Northern Lithuania) and in this area I find many Devonian tetrapodomorph and other fish remains but I also found one new temnospondyl osteoderm in the younger erratic. In this topic I would like to show all elpistostegalian, ichthyostegalian and temnospondyl remains I collected in the older living locality (Varena town, South Lithuania) and new living area I mentioned. All fossils are from erratic boulders because I did not have enough time to travel and collect finds from outcrops. I found many elpistostegalian (panderichthyid, elpistostege or livoniana like) remains especially from Emsian to Early Frasnian age but one fossil in red dolomite can be older (maybe Lochkovian in age). Several possible ichthyostegalians I also have in Late Devonian- interclavicle fragment in frasnian and some elginerpetontid and ichthyostegid pieces in Late Famennian. Talking about temnospondyls, I think they should be from various taxons and can belong to all Carboniferous, Permian and Triassic periods. The majority of remains are osteoderms (stereospondyl like are quite often). Please tell if my identifications are correct and help me ID these specimens if some are identified not reliable. 1. Panderichthyid skull fragment and scale (Early- Middle Devonian). In the first photo length is 6 mm, in the second- 4 mm.
