Just out of distress :). At the moment, I can not travel very far, and this formation is just within reach (30 minutes). Yes, there is also the Miocene and Eifelian near me, but the rudists still attract me most at the moment. Big question: How many rudists does one really need :D? Big advantage of this formation: You will find only 1 specimen every 20 minutes :D. But the total rudist count is nevertheless already somewhere between 400-500...

 

These Vaccinites alpinus appear to be the most aesthetic to me, most variegated. But that´s a matter of taste :D:

Great work, Franz!  So that's what a whole, intact rudist looks like?  Interesting!!!  And it's cool that you sectioned it so you can see the internal structure as well as the whole specimen (when you stack them back together) - great find! :dinothumb:

Hi Franz... I would have never thought a forest like this would be a likely spot to find fossils, but when they're just turning up on the ground, between roots, etc, then I can understand..

I know how difficult it is to decide whether to cut something open: I got some Precambrian stromatolite pieces from the Rocky Mountains last month and I thought about slicing a couple with the rock saw, but I hate to do it, even though they're just stromatolites - they look nice enough as natural specimens! I probably will end up doing a couple cuts as soon as I can get at my saw.

By the way, I got a look at your website... very good guidebook!
