Hey everyone, The Paleontological Society of Austin holds meetings once a month and always on the third Tuesday. Those meetings have always been open to the public. Now that we are doing them virtually via Zoom I would like to invite the members of the Fossil Forum as well. The meeting starts at 7pm CDT and we usually have a lecture for the first hour (often interesting) and then a short club business meeting (boring for guests). I am actually going to be the speaker tomorrow. Although I am by no means an expert on fossil crustaceans, I am presenting a review of what species are currently described from the Glen Rose and Walnut Formations (Albian) of Central Texas. I'll review the current literature, described species and show examples of what I have managed to collect myself (or with the help of others) over the last 15 years. I'll also have images of a handful of "unknowns" that maybe some of you other Texas collectors have encountered. We'll follow the presentation with a Q&A session as best I can. Here is a link to our newsletters and the meeting info is included in the September Volume. https://austinpaleo.org/newsletter.html Hope to see some of you there tomorrow evening. Erich Rose President, Paleontological Society of Austin
Hi everyone, In the spirit of scratching my itch to hunt, I imported some matrix from Central Florida. It was around one quart. I'll share my findings, though I haven't identified too many yet. If anyone has any suggestions or corrections, I'd appreciate it! These are the highlights. Megalodon fragment; and the next two are possibly from the same lineage but I'm not sure. Maybe a prehistoric crocodile or alligator tooth My best guess would be a crocodile or alligator femur Not a clue Again, not sure other than wagering at a deer tooth Manatee molar I want to say these are fragments of mammoth or mastadon tusks, but confirmation would be great Miscellaneous stuff, most of which I'm pretty sure are fossils but it's hard to ID any.
