  1. Tiny shell

    A few months ago I won an auction presented by @RJB. In it was a sand dollar that was encrusted by some coquina, so I worked on getting most of it off. When poking around in the stuff earlier this morning, I found a tiny little shell, just barely over 1/2 mm in size & very fragile. I got a couple pics of it with my dino lite, but to see detail I had to get creative. Had the onboard LEDs turned way down, but it was still washing it out, so I took 1 pic & shut them off. I then used a small LED flashlight with weak batteries & got a couple decent enough pics with some side lighting. Hopefully this will be enough for an ID. I really have no way to take an edge on view at this point with it being so fragile. The 1st pic shows some nice ribbing detail. Unfortunately, I have no idea where it's from & I don't think he knew either.
  2. I have come across several tiny bivalves and gastropods while digging marine fossils out of sandstone boulders, they range in size from about less than 1mm to about 10mm. I was wondering, do all of these small specimen grow into the larger ones? Also, I can plenty photos of present day small specimen but I can not seem to find many photos of prehistoric small bivalves and gastropods, anyone have any links to tiny prehistoric shells???
  3. Lyme Regis fossil ID

    Hi! I found this on my recent trip to Lyme Regis, UK. It would be Jurassic in age. Found on the beach, so I can’t say what layer it came from unfortunately. Its striations are quite ornate and beautiful, and I’d love to know what it is! Bottom view
  4. Hi all. Only one of my first few posts on here as I'm primarily a collector. However, this would tie two of my hobbies together. Microscopy and fossils! I've gone through the pinned articles on prepping, cleaning, etc. The one thing I'm still not clear on is retrieval of the matrix as easy as digging a shovel full of dirt, running it through sieves, sorting, and hunting? I'm currently living in Biloxi, MS, so I assume I'll need to travel an hour or two to get out of the marine deposit area that is constantly in and out. Thanks so much! -C
  5. tiny shell ID?

    I found this in Washington state, Oligocene era. Its quite small but doesn't have the same horizontal striations of the other bivalves I found. It has vertical striations like a scallop (not that I suggest it is one)
  6. Thescelosaurus Premaxillary Tooth pt.1

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    I found this on an anthill and initially thought it was a croc/alligator tooth but after closer inspection I believe it's a premax tooth from the ornithopod. Thescelosaurus neglectus Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation
  7. ID

    I found this a few years ago in Manlius, NY and I haven’t been able to identify it
  8. ID

    I found this a few years ago in Manlius, NY and I haven’t been able to identify it
  9. Coral or shell?

    I bought a "little" package of Lee Creek matrix from @PaleoRon recently. It came in yesterday & I started digging. Lots of teeth & vertebrae so far & I'm barely into it. I found this one thing I'm not sure what it is, but it looks cool. 11 mm in length x 6 mm wide & stuck to a rock. Pics are at 55x magnification showing top, both ends (sort of) & both sides (sort of). Wasn't easy to get some of the pics, but here they are. Not sure if its a coral or shell or just some ordinary oddity.
  10. Micro fossil?

    I have this rock at least i think its a rock and was looking at it under a microscope ...if this is a fossil its the smallest I have found the white part is only half the size of a grain of rice if that. One pic is of it dry the others wet. its pretty just wish it was larger... has one large flower shaped patter and a couple smaller ones on it a lighter color
  11. Tiniest Ecphora Ever

    Last week on a trip to the Tar River I brought home several decent sized Ecphora quadricostata along with an assortment of other gastropods and bivalves. This was on the same trip I found the Gannet ulna. While cleaning matrix from one of the larger ecphora's today, I found this teenie tiny ecphora quadricostata. It is 13.6 mm (.53 inch) long and 11.4 mm (.45 inch) wide. Here it is in a standard 4.35 inch by 3.35 inch riker mount.
  12. Odd shaped tiny fossil

    Found this tiny little thing at Myrtle beach South Carolina, any ideas on what it is? It's about 3mm
  13. Little tiny fossil

    So small it was difficult to get a quality photo with my phone, but this little fragment of whatever it might be has tiny dots and circles that are quite perfect, found at myrtle beach, SC
  14. small ammonite?

    Its 3mm diameter, best picture I could get. It looks like an ammonite to me, found on uncharted formation possible miocene, near limassol.
  15. What are these?

    I've always been curious to what these are. I've seen them in bricks and cement. Are they tiny sea shells? I found these in the river bed.
  16. Tiny little bone

    Hi all, Here is a tiny piece of bone I found on the Zandmotor (Netherlands) (Pleistocene). Do you know what part of the skeleton it might have come from, and from what animal? For now I'm thinking mouse... I can take closeups if needed. Thanks in advance, Max

  18. Tiny, worms, from, Costa Rica

    I found these fossils in a beach in Cabo Blanco Costa Rica, it seems to be a little worm, saying the true there are several of them and the biggest one is 8 mm long. I would like to know what kind of fossils it is. Thanks.
  19. Quick Trilobite ID?

    Hey guys, This is my first and only trilobite, which I found earlier this year in a creek bed in Missouri. The rocks in that area are predominately Mississippian or Pennsylvanian, but this particular creek seems older, maybe Devonian. I'm new to all this, so take all that with a grain of salt. So what do you all think?
