  1. I recently purchased this vertebrae which was sold as a mosasaur (Clidastes) vertebrae. I wasn't convinced that the vert was Mosasaur (or even marine reptile for that matter) in origin when I bought it, I simply bought it because I thought it was a nice looking vertebrae. But now I thought I might give it a shot to try and get an ID on this thing. It was found in the Gober Chalk, Austin Group, Gober, Fannin County, Texas, USA and dates back to the Campanian, Cretaceous (± 80 mya). I don't really know what the vertebrae could be honestly, I don't believe it to be Mosasaur in origin o

    Atco Peculiarity

    In June of 2018, Kieth Minor alerted me to a new apartment complex that was being developed in the middle Atco Formation of North Texas. They were cutting a huge cubic area of rock out of a hillside, piling up multiple large mounds of Atco which seemed to be begging for someone to carefully search out their freshly exposed contents. On the 15th of that month we got to the site, Kieth asked permission of the site foreman for us to carefully take a look around during the crew's work hours, and we made our way into the pit. We were on a mission to save as many ammonites as we could.

Kennedy (1984): " Family NOSTOCERATIDAE Hyatt, 1894 [Jouaniceratidae Wright, 1952, p. 218; Bostrychoceratinae Spath, 1953, p. 16; Emperoceratinae Spath, 1953, p. 17; Hyphantoceratinae Spath, 1953, p. 16] Genus TRIDENTICERAS Wiedmann, 1962 Type species.

  4. Heteromorph

    T. peramplum #2

    From the album: Fauna and Flora of the Austin Group in Texas

    This Tridenticeras peramplum specimen is 2.9 cm in height, and 1.9 cm in diameter. It shows the typical three rows of tubercles on each oblique rib, except on the most mature, bottom whorl. What I can tell from my references is that this is because only the phragmocone has tubercles, and thus the bottom whorl is the living chamber.
  5. Heteromorph

    T. peramplum #1

    From the album: Fauna and Flora of the Austin Group in Texas

    This specimen is the largest of its genus in my collection, and the largest known to me in any collection. It measures about 7 cm in height, and 4.3 cm in diameter. It retains its tubercles in the most mature whorl sections that are preserved well enough to tell. The specimen is quite crushed.

  11. I am right now out in the field, attempting to extract a string of articulated reptile vertebrae in the lower Atco. It is in a soft marl bed just a few feet above the basal Atco. There seems to be articulated ribs associated with the specimen, and so far I have uncovered 14 verts. 9 of them were lose of the surface and bagged in ziplocks, but now I am trying to get the rest out. If anyone has any advice, I need it! The specimen also has articulated ribs. I want to get this thing home tonight, and not destroyed. This is is my first time attempting to extract vertebrae, and I want to
  12. I found this Phlycticrioceras trinodosum heteromorph specimen in June of 2018 whilst hunting the middle/upper Coniacian Atco formation. It is the largest fragment of this species that I am aware of, having a whorl height of 51 mm as opposed to 47 mm of the largest fragment I've seen published. This genus is a bigger, rarer, and (mostly) younger cousin of Allocrioceras. I sent pictures of it to Keith Minor and he pointed out that there was also an echinoid sticking out of the specimen, something which I had totally missed! With much of the echinoid still stuck in the living chamber it is hard t

    Skin? Hoof? Fat and Bone? Help..

    Ok, last one I promise. I have found a few pieces of these fossil bone fragments with an odd type of material attached to them. Rather odd texture, sort of bumpy. My first thought was some type of skin or hoof. I am puzzled. Any ideas? Found in Post oak creek, Grayson Co. Texas Lower Austin, upper Eagle Ford Gulf series.
  14. Hello, I found this beauty in Post Oak Creek last week; and I have absolutely no Idea what this vertebrae could be from. I am used to finding various shark/fish verts in the creek, but nothing such as this. Help! Post oak creek is in Sherman, Tx. Cretaceous, Gulf Series - Upper Eagle Ford, Lower Austin Group. I'll attach more pics below
  15. In late February I went to a site in the Middle/Upper Santonian stage of the Bruceville Chalk Marl Formation, Austin Group, in Ellis county, Texas. While at the site I found a few inoceramids, possibly an anaptychus, and a chunk of rock that looks like it could have mollusk grazing traces on it. Then today I was organizing my collection and picked up the rock with the possible grazing traces. While I was handling the rock I happened to look at the bottom of it and spotted a small Squalicorax sp. tooth, my first tooth from the Santonian. It is 11 mm long and is pretty complete, wit
  16. This heteromorphic species is characterized by an open plain spiral shape with slightly rursiradiate ribs and 3 sets of tubercles; 2 sets of ventrolateral tubercles, and 1 set of ventral tubercles. The whorl section is compressed and does not have constrictions in United States specimens but does have constrictions in many European specimens. The distance between ribs is roughly the same as the width of a rib. As far as I know, there are only two species reported for this genus, with the other being Phlycticrioceras rude from the late Santonian of France (Kennedy 1995). P. trinodosum is the on

    Skin? Please help ID

    Ok, this fossil has me puzzled. It was found in Bois D Arc creek in Bonham; Fannin Co. Texas. Forgive me for not knowing much of the geological info on Fannin Co. Texas, but I think it's in the Austin Group, Late Cretaceous. This piece looks like skin. Veining in sections, and a complex structure all the way through. About 1 1/4" long.
