  1. Sadly, this is something I don't have any provenance on. I think its probably from the Inferior Oolite of Dorset or at least South England. It came in a job lot of other Ammonites and I didn't pay it too much attention until I saw a small inclusion - around 3.5MM round. I've taken some photos with my digital 'microscope', and some with my camera too. You can spot the odd fella at the end furthest away from the flat cut base. I'm sure this is nothing; I haven't seen anything quite like it before though. I am curious if anyone has any ideas - I haven't seen anything sim

    Oxford Clay Plesiosaur Tooth

    Hey everyone! I recently got a few marine reptile teeth from various formations in the UK, including this partial plesiosaur tooth from the Oxford Clay. The enamel is only partially preserved, but appears unworn and allows for a good look at the enamel ridges of this section. The curved, rather robust shape of the tooth and the irregular distribution of the pretty prominent enamel ridges made me move away from ichthyosaur or machimosaurid as an ID, and seemed more in line with the many plesiosaurs from this formation. But that's where it got more tricky.

    Help with fossil ID for kids

    Hi, I hope this is ok to post! Whilst out on a walk we came across the attached fossil. Whilst I appreciate it doesn't seem much, its quite distinct and any help to identify it - and help educate the small hands which has been carefully cleaning it - would be very much appreciated. I might have some explaining to do that it isn't a t-rex We are located in Derbyshire, United Kingdom. If anybody has good references for teaching kids (6 year old and 3 year old) about fossils it would be great to have them.
  4. Found these a few months apart on a beach in Suffolk of the UK. I am pretty confident, after a little research, that the first bone here is a partial clavicle, although I have much less confidence about what. I read that they only exist in animals with prehensile forelimbs, so it could be some kind of ape? No marsupial presence in the Doggerland that I've been able to find. And, probably not early human, right? (I'm sorry if that's a silly question. It always crosses my mind.) The second, while extremely worn, I think it may be an antler fragment because it has numerous

    Jurassic Tubular Structure

    Hey all! Throughout my many years collecting from around the Cotswolds, there has always been one constant: these weird, tubular structures. Originally, I thought them to be corals, when I was much younger. More recently, I have IDd them as the ichnofossils of a Serpulidae. If anyone could confirm or disregard this ID, I would be very thankful!

    UK flint microfossil

    This is a sponge(?) microfossil in a fragment of a flint nodule. The flint has been quarried from the south of the British coast, which is mainly Cretaceous strata. It looks slightly like it's an imprint, but, upon further inspection, it is a broken off membrane. Currently (and slightly embarrassingly) I have only whittled it down to Echinodermata... I know, I know, spare me your applause, while my PhD's waiting! More sincerely, if anyone could shed some brighter light upon this, I'd be very grateful!
  7. I am brand new to fossils and this forum.. and just dug a large boulder up in the garden which is full of bedrock like this. Is this a leaf?

    Help with UK Dinosaur/Reptile Vertebra ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID this vertebra found in Gloucester, UK a few years ago. It's from a Jurassic site and I'm pretty sure it's a theropod vertebra but was wondering if anyone on the forum could help out? I have a theropod tooth from the same place which I might post soon in the hope of narrowing down an ID too. Thanks in advance!

    Tooth? In Oxford UK

    Complete newbie. This may not even be a tooth. But there’s been some building work near us (Oxford, UK) and diggers have unearthed lots of unusual rocks. We’ve found plenty of belemnites and now this. Any ideas?

    Fossil hunting in the UK

    Since i am going to the UK next week i stumbled on a website that gives a good overview and might be helpfull for anyone else visiting the UK. The locations shared are all coastal as far as I could tell, but it gives an overview of locations, geologic info, what can be found etc. http://www.discoveringfossils.co.uk/fossil-hunting-locations_of-great-britain/ Best regards
  11. Hi, I've been sorting through some of my Jurassic fossils from Northamptonshire and I've been wondering about these fossils. They are from the Early Jurassic, and I have found many bivalves and belemnites in this area. Could the greyish slightly curved fossil near the top of the image be a coprolite of some sort? It seems to stick to the tongue. There is also the two bits of ironstone with small bumps, which I was wondering if they could be related to bivalves? Lastly there is a slightly curved object that I have no clue what it is. Many thanks.

    Watton Cliff Microfossil ID?

    In October 2020 I went to Watton Cliff for my first foray into microfossil hunting. I have since dissolved some of the matrix I collected in 20% acetic acid and one of the things I found, amongst all of the crinoid pieces is this. I'm not sure what it is but I'm guessing it's part of a fish. Are the rings visible on the reverse side annual growth rings? The sample I collected from Watton Cliff is from a loose sandy layer within the Forest Marble and is Bathonian in age. Thanks for giving it a look, as I sort and take more pictures I may post more of what I've found. Ther

    Ichtyosaur species uk

    Hello! I have a Ichtyosaur vertebrae from Abingdon, Oxfordshire. It says it's Kimmeridgian. what Im wondering is if there are many types of ichtyosaurs that has been found in that region or if remains from these can be narrowed down to a specifik species?
  14. Hi all and Seasons Greetings I was wondering if you may be able to give me a clue as to what I found about 5 years ago on a beach in North Yorkshire....not too far away from the beautiful town of Whitby. I was mooching around the rocks at the bottom of the cliff when I came across a 'cluster' of 5 egg shaped stones....I removed just one of the 'eggs' and it now sits proudly on my desk. The flat area that can be seen in the first and second photos is where the item was resting against another in the cluster. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone
  15. Hi guys i haven’t really seen a topic where people shared associated dentitions, if they have that would be cool to know this can be any sort of animal and any amount of association ( ie im not talking about a whole shark)! Here is my first contribution have fun!

    Modern cuttlefish jaw?

    Hi guys, found this a while ago, I assume it is modern as it seems to be too soft to be mineralised but thought it was pretty cool anyway, found in bracklesham bay, it’s definitely some sort of cephalopod jaw so cuttlefish may be the only option
  17. Hiya everyone does anyone know of anywhere I can find fossils in Merseyside England I’ve googled and can’t find anything thanks in advance
  18. An absolute monster of a jaw section I recently prepped from the Yorkshire coast. Only a partial so shows how big it would have been. This is actually part of another block I’m currently working on, containing another section of jaw along with a tonne of other bone from the beast. There’s also a neural arch from a vertebrae sat in there too. The bigger block is not far off finished so I will post that once acid treatment is finished. Thanks for looking

    Caudal vertebra or phalanx?

    Collected at Bouldnor on the Isle of Wight, and is about 33 million years old (Bouldnor Formation). This site produces a variety of mammals, turtles, crocodilians, birds, lizards, fish and amphibians. I am torn between labelling this a small caudal vertebra or phalanx. One end is unfortunately broken while the other is concave, with a rounded socket-like face to it. Measures 17mm long.

    Thames fossil, tree?

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and wondering if you could all help me out. I found this fossil on the Thames foreshore in London at low tide. I would love to know what it came from! My only thought is that one side looks like rings of a tree and 2 other sides look a bit like bark. Would be very grateful for any help! Thanks

    Bird Pelvis Fragment?

    After having another look at one of my bone fragments from the Bouldnor Formation (Isle of Wight, UK), the closest match i have been able to find is a bird acetabulum, as circled in the diagram below. But i am not an expert on avian anatomy. Can anyone else offer any insight? @Auspex Specimen is approx. 33 million years old. The Bouldnor Formation on the Isle of Wight produces a wide variety of mammals, turtles, crocodilians, birds, fish, lizards and amphibians. Measures 29 mm at its longest. The 'socket' which i think may be the acetabulum is 12.5mm in diameter.
  22. Hi guys. It's been a while as always when it comes to posting on here. Plenty of reason, too long to go into. I hope everybody is doing as well as they can be during this pandemic. Now onto the good stuff. A while back, I posted my phylloceras in a sorry state of affairs, sections missing everywhere, cracks everywhere. Basically it didn't look fantastic. You'll be able to find it somewhere on here from previous posts. Well, lockdown happened here in the uk, which means there was only one thing to do during this time, and that was to get to work in the workshop and finish a lot of stuff.
  23. Hey everyone, I recently acquired this ichthyosaur vertebra that was originally collected in Penarth, south Wales, UK. What initially struck me was the vertebra's size, since it's by far the biggest one I have of any ichthyosaur: Now, other large ichthyosaur remains have been described from the very same location. The paper is freely available here: https://bioone.org/journals/acta-palaeontologica-polonica/volume-60/issue-4/app.00062.2014/A-Mysterious-Giant-Ichthyosaur-from-the-Lowermost-Jurassic-of-Wales/10.4202/app.00062.2014.full The cliffs at Penarth apparently conta

    Burnham on crouch hunt

    Hi guys yesterday I went to burnham on crouch in the hopes that storms would have cleared the silt but that wasn’t the case, it was a mudbath this silt catches on teeth, on scoring then and making it hard to find anything so although I didn’t find much I’ll share what I did with you here are some photos of the site, you can see the mud, also for people who want to hunt here in the future I have drawn lines to show where to hunt

    Lyme Regis Brachiopods

    While looking at one of the shells in my collection that i had originally thought was a bivalve, from the stretch of beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, in Dorset (UK), another glance made me realize it is in fact a brachiopod: symmetry in plan view, asymmetrically sized valves in lateral view. So i dug out my British Mesozoic Fossils book and have identified it confidently as Cincta numismalis, which the book lists as occurring within the "Jamesoni Zone" of the Lower Lias at Radstock in Somerset. I am not familiar with the brachiopods of the Lower Lias at Lyme Regis in Dorset, but a
