    Virginia Turritella ID Help

    On a recent fossil outing, I visited a large shell bed in a creek near Williamsburg, VA that I read to be of the Late Miocene Cobham Bay Member, Eastover Formation. Many of the fossils we found seemed to confirm that this site is Miocene age. We found Chesapecten middlesexensis, Isognomon sp., Glycymeris sp., Ostrea compressirostra, Lirophora sp. However, we also found these three Turritella shell fragments. They measure about 2-3cm in length. I thought these shells looked very similar to the Turritella alticostata posted by @sixgill pete from the Yorktown Fm of NC or the Turritella alumensis

  4. Hi all, I have this slab that is composed of a mix of sandstone and clay matrix. One side is more heavily composed of sandstone while the other half is more clay. In the sandstone side is a well preserved mandible from Aepycamelus sp. seen from the lateral aspect. It was crushed along the sagittal plane allowing us to see the medial, lingual aspect of the other side of the mandible from behind. Because the mandible is crushed, I feel this piece would be best suited at a slab specimen, if you guys have any opinion please share. Now, the clay rich side appears to not have preserved as well but t

    An interesting Bone

    With the River and creeks WAAAAY over my head, I have started to sort, review, reduce my collections from the last 3-4 months, starting from the most recent. I have a couple of interesting bones. The 1st I think in a cannon bone from a small pre_equus horse. Why small pre_equus horse? I find 1 Equus fossil at this location for every 100 pre_Equus horse fossils, plus this bone is too small to be an Equus cannon bone. Why Cannon bone ? Because it seems very similar to a photo of Equus Cannon bone created by @Harry Pristis. Harry identified as left leg, Mine seems to be the opposite ori

    Peace River oddity

    I was out today with a friend hunting the Peace River. You might ask how. 90% of the river is way too deep and dangerous to hunt. I have a temperamental back which does not allow me to hunt areas that are less than knee deep. During season, there are many isolated areas like that, and for likely places we dig probe holes to determine if the area contains fossils. We identify areas which might be hunt-able when the river is 4 feet above normal. So a lot of small shark, ray teeth, mostly broken and a few finds that make the trip worthwhile.. On this day, a posterior Meg, a chunk of an
  19. I’ve made several trips to Greens Mill Run recently, lots of shark teeth and belemnites, large intact scallops and clams, large whale ribs and jaw bones and ear bones. However I have 3 fossils I cannot identify. Some pics are below: The top tooth is either mosasaur or crocodile, not sure which. The other two, I’m clueless. Any help would be appreciated!

    A Very odd bone

    I have this bone that I found 4-5 weeks ago. I have not had any new insights, but I think it strongly suggests marine mammal and because of the foramena, mandible. All suggestions and comments welcome. Jack

    Toe Bone, Phalanx

    An Interesting bone, It does not seem to be predator, so I am thinking something like Tapir, Peccary, etc. My biggest concern is that I have found pre_Equus horses, Gomphothere at this location and very little Pleistocene mammal material. But we will see. It seems to be the size of and resemble Tapir toe bones. I have copied one of @Harry Pristis excellent charts from another thread... Does it not look like a tapir phalanx? Comments greatly appreciated. Jack

    Another day in paradise

    Hunting trip to the Peace River. This is my day "job". The weather is very hot... mid-90s Fahrenheit, little breeze. It is very nice to be standing in a river. With the sun bearing down, I frequently submerge to my chin to cool off. We anticipate afternoon thunderstorms to roll in and soak us. Sometime thunder and lightening add to the experience. Usually there is insufficient time to reach cover before getting drenched. Sooner or later we'll get enough days with thunderstorms that will refill the river from its current low levels. Today is a sorting and photo taking day, wh

    Back to a favorite location

    Went out again yesterday (It's easy because I am retired,and planned to prioritize fossil hunting). It has been a while since I hunted here, and my friend and I commented that there had been intensive hunting since we were here last. While he was doing pretty well on Megs, Makos, and Hemis, I was having trouble finding a productive spot. -- it happens. The day was overcast and hot, but I am standing in water feeding the swarms of mosquitoes and an occasional horse fly. Did someone ever tell you that "Deep woods Off" would keep these varmints from pestering you? I have a not so secret st

    Whale? Crocodile? Bear?

    Hello! I found one yesterday that's stumped me. I've used the NC fossil club book and the Google and I've not seen anything like this. The smoothness of the upper part is throwing me off as the other whale teeth I have are textured. Same with the crocodile. This was found in NC where the Pliocene Yorktown and Miocene Eastover are exposed. I can take measurements later if needed. Thanks in advance!
