  1. Hi all! I found this rock with many fairly well preserved plant fossils in it. It's from the Kvamshest-basin in western Norway, deposited about 380 ish Mya. Does anyone here know what kind of plants they are?
  2. Hello everyone, I recently received two pieces of brachiopod fossils from Poland, both come from the Eifelian in Grzegorzowice. The first piece contains a number of small productids, I am not sure about the IDs but they do look quite similar to Poloniproductus varians that I have seen come from that area so I am wondering if that is what they are. And the next brachiopod is some kind of Athyrid? I wasn't able to find any similar species from this location. I would appreciate any help with identifying these, Thank you for looking!
  3. I'm currently working on a simulation of extinct biomes, i'm slowly learning how to make everything as realistic as possible for realtime 3d simulation. I would like to start with plants recreated from some Silurian, lower devonian and upper devonian, and slowly working to recreating the biomes in the areas where they lived and later i'l like to add animals aswell. All my research is made with google i'm not a professional in archeology or 3d art, some of the models are very simple and unpolished for now and will be updated. The project is in the early stages

    Algae or graptolite or what?

    I check this website from time to time and always learn something new. I am a bedrock geologist for many years - although I had a good training in paleontology, I still have to work hard to try to figure out a fossil. I recently and currently map rocks in northern Maine. The pictures show below are from a recently discovered greenbed basin (probably aged middle-late Early Devonian and deposited in a continental or sea-land transitional environment). My question is what are the dark-colored pieces? They don't look like burrows because they don't occur across layers. They don't look like tracks
  5. First off good to see everyone again. Been a good yr so far with fossils this year with new ones to add to collection. Time periods its hard to say except the horse tooth from 9-15000 yrs ago. Don't mind the mod podge on the connected spinal columns (I think) because the petrified black worms or seeds creeped me out. The coolest I think the petrified grass or leaf, but other finds especially the bones are up there too. Well enjoy and good to be back and if ideas on time frames give it a whirl. PS: Ill post more pics tomorrow with sizes to show how small some of this stuff is and etc.

    Whose head is this? Trilobite, Devonian

    Found this in the needmore formation of WV, he’s about 3 or 4mm at his widest. Also note that it’s pretty evenly pustulate, hard to get the right lighting to convey that. Ignore the crude tool marks on the left of the specimen, popped a few pieces of shale off him to expose more. Any help as always is greatly appreciated.
  7. Hi guys I decided to rescue and acquire a new unlabelled specimen. It appears to be a rugose solitary coral that can possibly come from the Devonian of south western Ontario. Can anyone give me any leads on the species level??

    Shark teeth

    From the album: Devonian

    Most teeth are fragmentary, with the Phoebodus-type teeth being the most common.
  9. ThePhysicist

    cf. Phoebodus sp.

    From the album: Devonian

    One of the most complete teeth of this kind I've found so far (intact root, just missing two of the cusps). It's remarkably similar to Orhacanth shark teeth from the Permian, being tri-cuspid with the little "button."
  10. ThePhysicist

    Shark spine

    From the album: Devonian

    Yes, sharks used to have spines! Xenacanth sharks in the Permian and Hybodont sharks did as well. This is the only shark spine I've seen from the Devonian - if you've got one, would love to see it.

  13. I managed to actually take a vacation last weekend and meet up with our very own Tim and Paul to collect Late Devonian verts from PA. I first met up with Paul at Red Hill. When I first arrived at the site I didnt know the person there was him. So I parked and walked into the ditch at the base of the road-cut and immediately spotted a strange form in a piece fallen from above. As it turned out it was a Gyracanthus spine! Gyracanthus sp. Turns out the mystery collector was Paul, who was kind enough to give me a rundown on the site, its geology, and show

    Bivalve id please

    I purchased some fossil rocks from a friend who visited the Cincinnati area as well as western Indiana...and a Boy Scout Camp. He told me it was Orcovician or Silurian. I'm looking for id on the bivalves on the "plate". Sorry, my bad! It's actually from the Deep Run Member here in the Finger Lakes Region of NYS. The bivalve is: Pseudoaviculopecten princeps. So much fun getting older! Thanks Greg

    Id help - coral rugosa?

    Found these at Salt Point beach of Cayuga lake. Are these rugosa corals? The length range is from 0.5 cm to 2.5 cm. Thank you!

    Prospection day in the Ardennes.

    This is a little prospaction day that we have done a month ago. The original thought was to go to Barveaux in the Ardennes, a site renowned for its spirifers and prospect other locations. The first stop was the area of Barveaux itself, but everything was overgrown and hard to access, so we didn't find anything here. We then hit the road to the south and prospected a few outcrops without a lot of success. After a while we passed Marche en Famenne,. Nearby was a industrial area where in the past I've found lots of spiriferids on construction sites, so we

    Devonian Fish Bone to ID????

    I had previously posted this in a Post on a fossil hunting excursion to a Devonian site in Iowa. Since then, the bone has been cleaned up and substantially more bone exposed. I am hoping someone might ID the bone. But probably just a bone chunk! You don't know if you don't ask!!! Mike

    Sylvania brachs

    I was in Sylvania OH this weekend and among many other pieces, I found these. I finished prepping them as soon as I could. The first is a pyrite paraspirifer bownockeri.....it is perfect, not a blemish or chip. This one is a paraspirifer (I think) but different. About 2 inches across. Has a few flaws. Then there is another pyrite bownockeri, same size as the first one, nearly perfect but for a chipped "wing" and a hole. But the hole exposes that it is also a geode....containing calcite I believe. I've never seen or heard of a geodized pyri

    Fossil ID please (Mahantango)

    Hello, This is a fossil from the Devonian Mahantango formation in PA. Looks like some bryozoan but the pattern seems too fine for a Fenestella. The dimensions of the fossil (not the rock sample) are 60x30mm. I looked around at a few books and fossil ID guides but did not find any direct comparable. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Boris

    Weird lower Devonian fossil

    I posted an image of this fossil along with all the others that I found, but that image was of poor quality and as such I think it got lost among all the other fossils I sent yesterday. I have no idea what it is, it might not be a fossil but if it isn’t I really have no idea what it is. It looks to me like the fletchings of an arrow but beyond that I have no clue.

    Catskills New York ID Needed - Biscuit Brook

    Saw many of these gray ovals... perhaps not a fossil?
  22. I recently collected a few fossils from Schoharie County in upstate NY. Among them are the pictured. I am hoping someone can tell me in detail exactly what I have, in as much detail as possible. I apologize in advance, as usual, but I am still learning and am trying to get as mush specific detail as I can. The first was hard to effectively photograph, but appears plant-like. It is hard to make out, but the pattern continues in a circle. I've included two photos, one with my hand for scale. Coral perhaps? The second has several things, but I am interested primarily in the lower right side
  23. I found four of these fossils in a Devonian site (Mahatango, I think). To my eye they look like vertebrae, but that seems so extremely unlikely at a site that is mostly given over to crinoids, brachiopods and trilobites. I have never found any fish there. What are they? Thanks in advance for any help. Matt
