Neat. Been a while since I've seen the sea scorpions make their rounds.

Where from the Eurypterid's body does the fragment come from? Hard to tell.

Dear JohnJ,

These bison phalanges are found in one very small area of deeply mixed sand (the location is near Saltinelis primary school, Varena town). :) 

The bones were almost in the same place (about 1 meter from each other) and the joint matching shows they belong to the same animal. :)

 

Best Regards

Domas  

Just because they came out of the same dig doesn't necessarily mean that they are from the same animal, let alone the same toe. No offense. Just saying.

What you see in the fossil is two tergites (segments) of the postabdomen (tail). 

Here's another photo:DCS_5686.thumb.JPG.7d44c5799d9fc0cc64571294c701a755.JPG

Hi, found this concretion on the 5th April, good sized Ichthyosaur piece containing four visible verts and articulated ribs on both sides, neural arches can also be seen with some Ammonite remains, this Ichthyosaur is around 180 million years old.  Delicate piece so have been using dental tools to remove the matrix, found on the Jurassic Yorkshire coast in England, thanks, Alan.
