  1. Past hour
  2. Teeth and other items

    Close ups.
  3. Trilobite Identification

    The 'spines' are tapering in the wrong direction to be a trilobite. The 'axis' is a siphuncle.
  4. Trilobite identification

    An outline of a bell-shaped glabella and the cephalic doublure is evident. This is a ventral specimen and appears to be another example of the mystery calymenid... nice!
  5. This is the best find I have ever had and pictures are all I will be able to retain as they are being catalogued. I wish my pictures were better but the vertebrae were turned in for review less than 3 hours after I found them. Date Of Discovery: 7/5/19 Name: Wahoo - Identified by Dr. Weems Age: Miocene, four formations present but believed to be from the Eastover Formation Location: Potomac River, VA
  6. Trilobite Identification

    Not sure if they are spines, or cross section through the cephalopod shell. If it is a trilobite, it would probably need more prep to ID, as it is extremely worn...
  7. Trilobite Identification

    Possible new genus and species?!
  8. Yesterday
  9. Trilobite Identification

    I am not sure I am on board with the cephalopod theory, I think I can clearly distinguish three lobes and I have never seen spines like those on the sides on any cephalopod
  10. Trilobite Identification

    I thought the same thing before I even saw Tim's response.
  11. 3 shark teeth. Anything special?

    Agreed. The strong v-shaped root is also inconsistent with Carcharhinus.. Might be pathological, I dunno. OP--any chance for close-up, lighter pics of both sides of the first and third teeth?
  12. Teeth and other items

    #1/2 is indeed a small tiger, Galeocerdo latidens. #3/4 is from the genus Carcharhinus, but I'd need a better picture to attempt to ID a species The other two items I agree with Fossildude19: they are mollusk shell fragments
  13. Trilobite Identification

    I could be totally wrong on this, but this looks more like a cephalopod to me, rather than a trilobite.
  14. Cole Hill 7/5/19

    @Al Tahan will do! I'll be back in CNY at some point in August and maybe for a bit of September. Congrats on the wedding!!

    @Fossildude19 @Fossilis Willis @Pagurus Thanks guys!!! @Darktooth thanks Dave! The big day is on August 9th in the Buffalo Ny area. It’s starting to get real! @Kane gosh I hope so lol...really wishing for some serious winter conditions followed by a warming trend...then repeat hah. @Scylla just lemme know next time your update Gus! I’d love to meet ya there. @The Amateur Paleontologist the cephalopods come out kinda like bullets for lack of a better description. The last photo of my associates fauna the cephalopod is all the way on the left. Ill see if I can find my stash and toss up some cephalopods I’ve found a CHR. I kinda packed it all up after I took the photos lol.....first world moving problems ha. @FossilNerd thanks for the kind words! It means a lot @Calico Jack Dude your Christmas dipleura still haunts me haha. That was an awesome find. Next time you go let me know! Maybe I need some of your luck lol.
  16. Trilobite Identification

    This specimen has 11 axial rings, many more than are described for Flexicalymene or Gravicalymene. There are no matches in the literature for any similar Sandbian calymenids, most likely making this an undescribed new genus and species.
  17. Devonian finds

    And two cephalopods that I do not know the genus or species of, Also does anyone know what that small ring on one of them could be?
  18. Devonian finds

    Next is what I believe to be a lingula but I am not 100% sure
  19. Devonian finds

    Here are a few finds from my first trip to Penn Dixie not sure exactly what these are. The first is a spiriferid brachiopod but I would like to confirm that what is on it is a crinoid holdfast or is it something else?
  20. Beekite rings

    I recently saw an ID post where it was suggested that what the person had was beekite. I confess that I had to do an internet search to see what beekite was... I remembered that I had a few specimens myself that looked like they were covered in something similar that I had always wondered if it was something geological or was once part of the animal. Then I found this thread! Would I be correct in assuming that this little horn coral is covered in beekite? I have a few other examples that I can show. This one just happened to be handy.
  21. Found in Central Texas creek bed

    Rudists may have strange shapes, also oysters. Crossed my mind the possibility of an oyster (maybe two), something like Ilymatogyra arietina or similar. I think, the best way to find out what it is, is to prep it out from the matrix. link
  22. Cole Hill 7/5/19

    Nice finds @Al Tahan! You've got me itching to get back there!!
  23. Trip to Folkestone

    Those are really great fantastic finds! Next octobre i'll go to Cap Blanc Nez with the Belgian Society for Paleontology. I hope to learn more about ammonites, their environment and hopefully I'll find some Maybe one day I can visit Folkenstone too. I just looked it up and it looks a great place for fossil hunting! Since it's so far off, there must be so much to find!
  24. Cretaceous bone from Cooke County Texas

    I am with Rockwood on this one I would show it to an expert on Pterosaurs. From photos it looks to be a very thin walled bone with an infilled core possibly a radius or ulna ?? The other material found in the area was marine and as it dose not conform to any marine bone material. The best assumption is that it flew to near where it was found and the bone material would be bleached so the colour does not make it recent. The core being filled points more to fossil.
  25. Teeth and other items

    4, 5, and 6 look like shells and maybe a coral, to me. Cropped and brightened:
