Beautiful specimen!! Wish they were around in the Ordovician.

I agree. This one’s looks like Heterodiadema libycum (Agassiz & Desor, 1846), but are much more bulbous.

Beautiful echinids but very hard to clean

Yes they are. I will clean and take out some of the matrix, but part of it will be embed. I have no tools. The most difficult ones are some of the Anorthopygus michelini Cotteau, 1860 from the our D level.

Has anyone something to post for this thread?

These are fantastic ... does it take much to find these or are they eroded out ?

 

Cheers,

Brett

Headed out with the kayak to the river after the end of the quarter .. got caught in a storm so that was fun ... but still found some fun pieces.  A few of these come from my little hole on the river.  Not a day that it won't kick out something .. usually of the Carcharhinus sp. variety.

 

A sperm whale tooth and rodent tooth were the fun finds of the day .. (probably capybara)

 

The meg tooth is just shy of 6 inches.

From material collected last year, "found" and prepped today. Snails from the last somewhat marine influenced (brackish) strata of Austria - sediments of Lake Pannon.

From a small outcrop in a creek in Göttelsberg near Weiz, eastern Styria. Outcrops are not that bad there, and several thin lignite seams up to 0.5 m thick are intercalated within the clay-silt-sand layers. One clay-silt-layer, only a few dm thick, contains abundant molluscs. Mostly very small Congeria, but also Melanopsis species etc.
