  10. Quenstedtoceras Ammonite

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Quenstedtoceras Ammonite United Kingdom Jurassic Period (~112 Million Years Ago) Quenstedtoceras is a genus of ammonoid cephalopods that lived during the latter part of the Jurassic period in what is now France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The shell of Quenstedtoceras is typically evolute and strongly ribbed, with all whorls visible. Widths vary according to the species from rather narrow to somewhat broad, as does ribbing. Ribs commonly start at the umbilical shoulder and extend laterally to about mid flank where they divide and curve forward toward the outer rim, or venter, and meet at a keel. Shells are of moderate size, commonly reaching diameters of about 6 cm (2.4 in). Quenstedtoceras, included in the superfamily Stephanocerataceae, now revised to Stephanoceratoidea, is first of the subfamily Cardioceratinae, derived from Cadoceras or related genus is the mid or late Callovian and gave rise at the end of its range in the early Oxfordian to Cardioceras.

  19. Coprolite with cephalopod inclusions

    This coprolite is from a marine creature that swam in the Jurassic seas that once covered this parts of England. The dark inclusions that can be seen on the surface are cephalopod hooks. In April 2016, the University of Minnesota X-ray Computed Tomography Lab scanned the specimen using a X5000 high resolution microCT system with a twin head 225 kV x-ray source and a Dexela area detector (3073 x 3889 pixels). Many of the images shown here are of individual 3D elements/features within the coprolite that were separated/isolated using Blob3D. The taxonomic classification given is for the inclusions, not the coprolite. Aside from the hooks, it is hard to definitively identify the inclusions without damage to the coprolite. The following is a list of inclusions: 241 hooks of various sizes that are at least 75% intact. 200+ plate-like fragments of various sizes. 19 ellipsoidal structures, possibly forams or parasite eggs. 2 unidentified long, straight conical structures joined at wide end (A) 1 long rod-like structure with a bulbous end (B) 1 unidentified mass that looks like it was the attachment point for 5 rod-like structures (C) 1 1ong cylindrical (rod) structure that tapers in the center. The center density is much lower than the outer shell (D) 1 irregular structure that looks I originally thought might be an ink sack or buccal mass, but the size is wrong. Experta think it is more likely foraminifera (E) 1 irregular structure, possibly a statolith (F) Acknowledgements: Thank you to Neale Monks and Christian Klug for providing input.

  23. My first Scunthrope ammonite!

    Hi, Just wanted to share my excitement at finally getting a chance to own a genuine lower lias ammonite from the infamous (now sadly closed/filled in) ironstone quarry in Scunthorpe (United Kingdom,Lincolnshire). The fossils found within this locality are mostly preserved in pure calcite and have a range of colours which include stunning/natural pinks and greens. It's due to arrive tomorrow! but I feel so privileged and lucky to grab one and also from a highly revered/professional prepper in the United Kingdom! : http://www.yorkshirecoastfossils.co.uk/scunthorpe_fossils.htm It's only a small specimen (Aegasteroceras sp) but still stunningly beautiful! Scunthorpe ammonites are among the most beautiful in the world (in my opinion) and if you can grab one, grab one whilst they are still within price range for most people because like all things they will go up in value as the years go by due to the quarry being closed. (As it hasn't arrived yet this photo isn't mine! and is property of "Yorkshire coast fossils", but sharing to share my excitement.)
  24. My Jurassic Park - Europe

    My Jurassic Park now heads across the pond to England and Germany. Dinosaur material from these countries is not common like North America and in fact very difficult to obtain. Theropod material is extremely rare and most remains are fragments. Most of my material from England comes from the coast of two areas The Isle of Wight and East Sussex. Material from these area comprises the Wealden Super Group (Hasting+Wealden+Weld Clay) and is early Cretaceous from the Valanginian to Barremian Stage (140-125mya). Yellow - Hasting Group , Green - Weald Clay Red - Wealden Grouip Theropods Baryonyx walkeri My collection includes two examples of this Spinosaurid from England. One tooth is partially rooted. Megalosaurus bucklandii One of the large theropods of region. This tooth was found encased in a block and the tip was restored based on the matching blocking Dromaeosaurid indet A very cool small theropod tooth. May not have yet been described.
  25. Hi, i was hoping someone could help me identify whether the following photos are a concretion or a fossil. The piece was found poking out of a lump of clay fallen from the cliff at Robin Hoods Bay, North Yorkshire, UK. It looks like one end is broken off and there is an outer layer which is a mid grey colour with brown patches and the inner is a much darker grey to almost black. The dimensions are around 9" by 4" by 3". Any help much appreciated, thanks Simon
