Hey, fellow fossil forum members!
Did any of the Belgian, Dutch, German & French members among us go to Paleotime this edition?
I went for the second time this edition and I really loved it and I got some amazing loot ;) 
Here are some snapshots I took!

Most of the prices where pretty great if you ask me, ofcourse it depended from seller to seller, but I think everyone who attended could do some amazing deals, I certainly did! :)

You've got a brachiopod mislabeled in that first series of pics.

Cool show, I wish we had fossil shows like this over here near me.

I hate to break it to you but it's not a Spinifer, either!  (Spirifer) ;)

My favorite thing in this thread is the table with Solnhofen plattenkalk fossils. Love those!

@gigantoraptor This tooth might be an Ypresian croc, cf. Dyrosaurus. I think Dyrosaurus was the only croc genus from there with striated teeth (there were quite a few other genera), check the description here

Here is my jaw section from a similar one
