    Virginia Miocene/Pliocene Shells

    Last month I collected fossil shells at several exposures in Virginia of the Late Miocene Eastover Formation (Cobham Bay Member) and Early Pliocene Yorktown Formation (Sunken Meadow Member). While my intention was to focus on the larger fossils, when I got home and started to clean my finds, I thought it would be cool to screen the excess debris and see what else I had found. Although I ended up finding a lot of tiny shells and shell fragments, they require a microscope to see and the fine details have made identification challenging. I have consulted several publications on these formations a

    Camelops Rib?

    Hi All, I am new to this forum. I am over my head in what is, in my novice opinion, a preponderance of quartz stone tools that go back to the Pleistocene. Among the unverified relics, I have found a variety of bones which appear to have been altered for use as tools. Additionally, they have what appear to be teeth marks at the edges, as if a person was holding them in hand and biting. I wanted to post a pic of a rib that I think belongs to a Camelid. I have spent a lot of time looking over pictures of all sorts of mammal ribs, and Camelids come the closest. Additionally, I vi
  3. Braved the cold, icy water for some digging in gravel and the hopes of something special. Miserable, cold and rainy, and I'm sore today from squatting. Not much quality wise in shark teeth, but good variety and quantity. And no evidence of recent competition from the local kids (and adults). All playing computer games? Was happy to find some pieces of cowshark teeth (always wonder if I break them digging through the gravel?), several sand tiger symphyseal/ parasymphyseal teeth, a few angel shark, and apparently some small mako. As usual lots of broken/split teeth. I stuck my
  4. Although I haven't been beach hunting much this winter (fishing was great until a few weeks ago), I rooted around for my shrimp coprolite burrows. Lately I have been finding less of the cylindrical 1-3" long burrows and more broken pieces. @Carl @GeschWhat are the experts on these things, and lately I've found more of them on the beachs than shark teeth (Covid-19 opened the interest in beach combing so more competition for teeth.) Difficult to get much resolution, even enhancing the contrast, but this is a scan of most of my collection:
  5. I have been fishing more than beach combing and the collecting has been poor (or maybe I'm going blind!) Lots more people this year hunting stuff with metal detecters, screens and better eyes. This would have been great for one trip, but accumulated over 8(?) trips. Hopefully with better winter storms more will turn up, and the cold will keep most people away.
  6. Hey y’all! I’m going to be in the VA beach/Norfolk area for a few days in mid Feb. Anyone have tips for hunting in the area? And/or does anyone know of any fossil hunting tours/guides that I could get in touch with? I’m clueless about the area, but I am willing to drive up to 2hrs for a fossil hunting day trip! I know it’ll be chilly, but I’ve got my waders and wool socks ready Thank you!

    Chippokes State Park in Surry VA

    Hello ! just wondering if anyone has ever been to Chippokes State Park Plantation in Surry Va. I have been there about 6-8 times haven’t had much luck there. I’ve found probably only 10 teeth at that location. Can anyone share their finds from there? @HoppeHuntinghave you ever been to Chippokes? If so have you had much luck there?

    Marine Mammal Vertebrae?

    Bone fragment found on the York River in Virginia. It is the Yorktown Formation, Pliocene epoch. I'm wondering if it is a vertebrae fragment, and what species it might belong to. It's convex on one side, and concave on the other.

    What shark tooth is this?

    I found this tooth a few years back collecting at Stratford hall on the tour (it was a great day) and now that I look at it twice it doesn’t look like any of my makos that I ah e in my collection and believe me, I have a lot of makos. So that brings me to ask, what exactly is it? It’s about 1 1/4 inches long and I have lower makos but they don’t look like this. Here’s some photos I hope I can get to the bottom of this!

    Found on beach Virginia, USA

    We found this specimen today on the beach at Chincoteague Island, Virginia, USA. It's about 25 cm long and has a spongy looking interior. My first thought on seeing on the beach from far away was that it was a fin. Some edges are smooth suggesting that shape. But up close it's hard as a rock. Anyone know what this is?

    Potomac tooth ID?

    I found both of these on the Potomac in a unique site with Paleocene Eocene AND Miocene exposures. I was not able to identify them, does anyone know what they could be?

    Four Devonian scraps

    Four separate specimens, all partials. Found in the needmore formation (mid Devonian) near Winchester Virginia. First specimen- first 2 pictures- 1.6 cm: I’m guessing some sort of orthocone nautiloid but the evenly spaced squigly patterns threw me off (I find a lot of them but they don’t have that pattern). Also the fact that it bends a bit (second photo is taken at an angle to give an idea how the cast bends) although this could be from geologic forces. Second specimen- second two pictures- 3 mm: I honestly have no clue. Seemingly has spines? Seemingly thin bodied? Body seems like i

    Stepping Stone Fossil

    Greetings, Hopefully this will be easy since I only have one picture for now. I noticed this large fossil (?) when I was moving stepping stones. It is about 23cm long and 4cm wide. It is in a large stone I collected on the edge of a hay field, about 8 meters from the Tye River, in Nelson County, Virginia, USA, on the edge of the Piedmont, near the Blue Ridge. I apologize for not having better pictures. I noticed it back in February but gave up trying to identify it months ago when I could not find anything similar. Obviously, I do not have any fossil knowledge but I enjoy learning and it would
  16. Found this odd 9" long jaw-like fossilized bone in a small creek within the Yorktown formation in Virginia between the York River and I-64. It is atypical of the Baleen Whale and Ice Age mammal bones I have found in the same area. Any help with identifying this specimen would be appreciated.

    Mystery ecphora

    I love the ecphora for their improvisations but... I’ve searched the photos from Ward and Petuch for anything similar to this ecphora from the James River in Virginia. It’s a globose shell with six distinct costae. specimen is three inches long.

    Virginia mammal tooth

    Hello! i recently found a small, broken mammal molar. The occlusal surface is worn flat partially, this maybe difficult to see from the photos, it seems small to be an older pig, but pig was my first guess. If that is correct I guess it would most likely not be a “fossil”, although it seems to have some qualities consistent with mineralization. Is it conceivably human, about the same size and in better shape than some of mine! Very curious find for me and probably obvious for some members. thanks for your time!

    First Meg

    We recently were able to take a trip to the Miocene of Virginia along the Potomac River. We weren't sure what the conditions would be, as the last time we were here the tide was extremely high limiting the length of the beach and how much was accessible. When we got to the beach we could tell it would be a good day, the tide was pretty low with still a couple hours to go before low tide, and we could see long stretches of beach in both directions. As we walked I wasn't having to much luck, but my wife who trailed behind me was finding some good sized hastalis teeth that I had missed. Once we g
  20. I recently found this 9mm by 7mm specimen in matrix from the Eocene Nanjemoy Formatiion of Virginia. I think it is a piece of a Chimaera tooth plate. However, in collecting the Nanjemoy Formation in Virginia for over twenty years I have never found a Chimaera tooth plate or a fragment of one. For that reason I don't want to rule out a coral fragment. However, I haven't found a piece of coral in this formation before either. For comparison, a Chimaera tooth plate (25mm by 16mm) from the Paleocene Aquia Formation of Maryland:
  21. I have already posted pictures of this partial jaw in a topic “The most rare fossil on your collection” in “Member Collections”. However, I would like to start a thread here in “Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to Science” so I can discuss any updates with this partial jaw. I found this partial jaw ( 3mm by 3mm by 1mm) in February 2019 in matrix from the Eocene, Nanjemoy Formation, Potapaco B Member in Virginia. Below are pictures that I took of the partial jaw: I sent these pictures and

    Graptolite Display Ideas

    I have been wondering what to do with the graptolites I have found. Currently they're scattered around the house, which I think is a sign to put them up for display. Please... help... the graptolites are taking over my house! How do you suggest I display them?
