  1. Tidgy's Dad

    Adam's Cambrian

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.
  2. Hello everyone,I've decided to open a chain of comments focusing on a popular theme: Moroccan spinosaurids. This is the first comment of a small series dedicated to analyse and document the diverse morphology of spinosaurids in the Kem Kem group. As an introduction,I'll be specifying how it will work,the rules and some guidance for those interested. First and foremost,the rules: 1)For correct identifications,I require images in various view(ventral and lateral at least) and with the highest quality possible. 2)Each comment will focuse on a specific morphotype,as

    Ordovician fossil ID

    Good day Can you help with the ID of this fossil from the Ordovician of Fezouata formation, Morocco. Cheers Malek

    Moroccan Fossil ID - Vert

    Here’s another one I’m not sure about. I know we are still learning about the Kem Kem Beds daily, but I wanted to give this one a shot to see if any of the community had any input. I know you all know much more than I do. It was sold as Dino/Crocodyliform, so not much to go off of besides it was in the Cretaceous Kem Kem beds.

    A Trilobite this time

    I was asked recently by @Top Trilo when I would do a trilobite, so I decided to take up the challenge with this Hollardops mesocristatus from Morocco which I acquired a while ago. It's preserved in a somewhat concave position, which made for an interesting point of view.

    Theropod Indet. Tooth

    Hi folks! Received a new theropod indet. tooth today from the ever exciting Kem Kem. I was tentatively leaning towards a Carcharodontosaurid indet i.d., in line with morph type 3 in the always handy guide from @Troodon, but a few properties of the tooth have me wanting to get some extra opinions. Measurements: Crown Height: 27mm Crown Base Length: 10mm Cross Section: 7mm Mesial serrations: 5/mm (midline) Distal serrations: 3/mm (area just above damage at midline) There is a neat repair at the tip, a bit of d

    ID requested: Kem Kem tooth

    Hi everyone, I am currently eyeing this Theropod tooth from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco which is listed as a Deltadromeus tooth. Now I know that no teeth can be attributed to Deltadromeus as no cranial material has been found yet and I know that most teeth sold as Deltadromeus are in fact Abelisaurid teeth but this tooth seems way to curved to be Abelisaurid which could my eye instantly. So I was think if this might be a Dromaeosaurid tooth which while rare (and not yet officially described from Kem Kem) are somethings found and sold as Deltadromeus. Or might this be a small ant

    Kem Kem Notosuchian or Theropod?

    Hey everyone! I just received a few teeth from the Kem Kem Beds near Taouz, Morocco. Among them one has me particularly stumped - I’ll do my best to provide as much information as possible, but let me know if more is needed! The tooth was listed as a theropod, though even the seller thought that assignment was only tentative. Its total height is 14mm. As the pictures above show, it’s moderately recurved as well as slightly curved lingually, with very distinct flutes running the whole length of the crown, 6 lingually and 9 labially, with the lingual flutes a

    Tooth from the Kem Kem beds

    Hello, I'm trying to correctly identify a tooth found in the Kem Kem formation. It is clearly predatory! I was told it was possibly dromeosaurus, however after a search it seems there are many wrongly identified as this species from that location. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Please help identify

    Hello I have a few dinosaur teeth like these and can't identify them. They are dinosaur and they are from Morocco. At first I thought Carchardontosaurus or Abelisaurus but 1. I have teeth if both and they don't look the same. 2. There is a curve and thickness that reminds me of tyrannosaurus teeth. Any help will be appreciated.
  11. Tj1977

    Please help identify

    I'm not sure what dinosaur this tooth belongs to from Morocco. It is not carchardotosaurus as it curves.

    Anomalocaris Morocco ?

    Can it be a part of an anomalocaris? Ordovician, Fezouata Formation. Morocco Fossil Length 17 cm (7 inches)
  13. I need a few more Cretoxyrhina for the display I’m trying to finish. I really do not want to spend money so I’m trying a trade. I recently got some rare Kem Kem Lamniformes teeth and can offer up a Leptostyrax. It is the largest of those I got at 2.6 cm. There is some matrix on the root but the tooth is in pretty good shape. I would consider teeth from any location but my preference would be a location I don’t have such as New Mexico or Alabama. PM me if you’re interested
  14. How does one reliably differentiate Moroccan Pterosaur teeth from similarly elongated fish teeth? Are there any grooves, striations etc I should be looking out for under a loupe? (Image credit: AJ Plai, http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php...)

    Strange little Kem Kem tooth

    Hello, so I saw this a while ago, and seller has sent me some extra photos. It's a very strange little tooth from Ksar es Souk, Kem Kem. The seller found the closest match being the pterosaur Ornithodesmus latidens at a museum, so assumes this comes from a pterosaur of a similar species. I haven't seen any Kem Kem teeth like this. It is 1.5cm long, has slight serrations. I am wondering if it might actually be a juvenile tooth from Hamadosuchus or one of the other serrated-toothed crocs from there. I see some of their teeth have this triangular shape--though not an exact match.
  17. Hello, I have been going through some fossils that I bought a while back. I came across this agatized snail from Morocco. I’ve tried to find more information on these agatized snails, but have been unable to find much. Some sellers online say that they come from Assa, Morocco, while others say they come from the Dakhla region. I’m also wondering what species this little guy belongs to, and a more precise age for these gastropods, although I’m pretty sure they are Eocene. Does anyone have any information regarding these agatized snails?

    Help identifying Morocco fossil

    Recently I purchased this fossil from an online auction and I’m curious to find out it’s identification. The only information I have on it is that it originated from Phosphate mines in Morocco, that’s it. From first glance I think it’s a fish skull, possibly enchodus. Any help would be great.

    Plesiosaur spine?

    This piece of spine with 4 verts was found in the fosfat beds of Morocco. It is supposed to be Plesiosaur, but the form is different I think. Might be Mosasaur, although I have never seen these trianglar shaped studs on the sides of the vertebrae. Does anyone recognize the shape? The whole piece is appx 40cm long and a good 20 cm wide.
  20. I have been reading up on Moroccan mosasaurs and one point of confusion that I have run into is differentiating teeth from Prognathodon anceps and Prognathodon giganteus. There seems to be a great deal of overlap in their descriptions and occasional contradictions in the scientific literature. The first issue I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a great deal of confusion over what to even call the two species. Leiodon anceps (Owen, 1841-1845) was based on two tooth fragments and a section of jawbone. The genus was renamed Liodon by Agassiz (1846) because the

  22. hy mosasaurs lovers i looked around on differents americans fossils web sites , and i found ,is nowhere a description or list about different species of mosasaurs from morocco . so I'll try humbly to fix it . feel free to correct me if you see something wrong. the moroccan phosphate history began in 1921 , Moroccan phosphate mines operate three layers of phosphates ,. level 1 : ypresian phosphate bed level 2 : thanetian phosphate bed level 3 ; maestrichian phosphate bed level 4 ; maestrichian grey phosphate only at sidi-chenan quarry

    Pluridens serpentis

    There is a new Moroccan Mosasaur described here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0195667121001294?via%3Dihub It is called Pluridens serpentis. I suspect pictures of it's skull may already have been shown on this thread under another identification. It is known from two skulls and mandibles.
  24. Hello, any thoughts on this? It is sold as pterosaur remains--jaw pieces and a vertebra, from Ouled Abdoun Basin, Morocco. From the Cretaceous--unfortunately from an old German collection, so the information is limited. 240mm x 105mm Now, I think it is misidentified and is actually a bird--possibly Dasornis because on the first pic, the jaw has a long tooth and then a few of the smaller mini "teeth" which matches a drawing I found in a paper of similar birds, which I've also attached. If it's Dasornis or a bird, then that would mean it isn't Cretaceous in ag

    Fossil shark vert from Morocco

    I got this fossil shark vertebra for free. It was filled with matrix on it so i prepped it. Its from the Oulad Abdoun Basin, Morocco near Khouribga. The location has fossils from the Cretaceous-Eocene. Does anyone know the species/genus or age of this shark vert?
