Beautiful gastropods and bivalves, Franz!  I especially like the pieces with different species present on the same rock - very nice!

As usual, fantastic report Franz! I'm always so impressed by how rich those sites are. I can't wait to go look at them myself one day (hopefully!).

Thanks for sharing!

Love the fossils and the locality photos.  Almost feel as if I am there, except of course that I cannot collect anything myself.

Good pictures and report. Thanks to which document or source do you identify the shells ? I have fossils of a very similar fauna from french miocene and still have a few undetermined species. And how do you realize the black backgroung on the picture ?

Hi,

 

Pixpaleosky, where your miocene shells come from in France ? From memory it seems to me that I have some PDF publications on Miocene molluscs, and even of Redonien (Pliocene basal), but I would need time to look a little (during the Toussaint holidays) If you remember me that ;)

Hi @FranzBernhard, thank you for your kind reply and i will have a close look at the documents ! Maybe i will do an ID topic. Your camera setup is as cheap as mine but it works well !

 

Hi @Coco, the location is Vaucluse, and the exact age is Tortonian. The shells are in grey marl. I identified 90% of them but i am stuck on the rest.

If you have anything helpful it is welcome :)

Hi,

 

I am not able to attach files to public responses, but I can in MP (what I did for Pixpaleoski). I think it’s been like that for several years... Can an administrator help me ? Thanks.
