    What is this shell fossil?

    HI! New member here on the Fossil Forum from Sydney, Australia. My son wanted to find some marine fossils a couple weeks ago, so we went to Ulludulla's Permian aged (kungurian) Gondwana fossil coast. I need ID on the poorly preserved largest fossil in the middle (ignore spiriferid brachiopod on top right). Note this fossil is part of the Wandrawandian Formation (Shoalhaven group), south of the Sydney basin, Ulludulla. Thank you in advance for any help you guys can provide because I'm no expert.
  2. Hey everyone, I found this rock the other day when fossil hunting at Beaumaris Bay in Melbourne. The site is well known for late Miocene echinoderms, cetaceans etc. and recently some lobster burrow trace fossils have been described. If anyone has any idea what it might be I'd really appreciate the input!
  3. As a freshmen in College, I did a little extra credit report for my geology class about a controversial topic - Tyrannosauroidea diversity in the Southern Hemisphere during the Jurassic-Early Late Cretaceous periods. I was quite surprised at the amount of specimens I found. This diversity likely was the result of an early spread of the early tyrannosaur group Pantyrannosauria into Africa, Eurasia, and North America during the Jurassic and diversified once the land connecting these continents spread out more. Most of these species lived during the Early Cretaceous, though one or two exceptions might have lasted into the Early Late Cretaceous. I've created a list of known of the species and specimens which I would like to share on the forum (let me if there are any examples I'm missing or should add): South America Santanaraptor (Romualdo Member of the Santana Formation) (Early Albian, Cretaceous period 112.6-109.0 million years ago) Specimen: MN 4802-V (partial skeleton) http://www.fossilworks.org/cgi-bin/bridge.pl?a=collectionSearch&collection_no=67712 Tyrannosauroidea indet.

    Help identifying these please.

    These were found in a car I purchased in SW Australia. They are roughly 300mm long. thank you very much.
  5. My partner randomly suggested we go fossil hunting at Turimetta. I've never been fossil hunting and I was surprised by how much we actually found. I haven't uploaded pictures of everything we found bc it's mostly just plant matter that I've managed to find similar pictures of in other forums. I'm curious to know if the rusty-orange coloured ones are anything. Was really exciting to find them when carefully splitting rocks in half! There's also a tiny ball shape I found when I split open a rock and it almost looked like a tiny soccer ball or pine cone because of the lines in it. It didn't show up quite as clearly on camera sadly. And there's another rock with a cylindrical shape in the side of it. I thought that was very interesting so I took lots of angles. Thanks in advance for your help!

    Bone identification unsure

    So I found this bone like fragment at the fossil bay in Beaumaris, I’m pretty new to this stuff so it could also just be a weird rock but thought I’d ask anyway IMG_0276.mov

    Juvenile xenacanth

    While preparing a large xenacanth tail from a new site south of Sydney I noticed this juvenile of the same species within the nodule. Xenacanths are very common in this horizon of the Ashfield Shale but are often poorly preserved, so this example offered a unique opportunity to photograph certain features such as the denticles. Unfortunately, both specimens are incomplete since half the nodule was missing, but that is just the nature of this site! Here is the whole nodule with the partial xenacanth tail, three poorly preserved Cleithrolepis and juvenile xenacanth towards the right: The juvenile xenacanth. Towards the top middle section is the base of the dorsal spine which never seems to preserve on adult specimens, and towards the left are impressions of denticles and the vertebrae. Towards the right, the lower jaws with teeth are preserved and there even seems to be an impression of the eye. Ammonium chloride images of a latex peel showing the whole specimen and closeups of the jaw and teeth: Closeups of denticles:

    Australia, Unknown Fossil

    Hello fellow fossil people, The images are of an unknown specimen collected from a well known fossil site just south of the city Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. I'm finding it difficult to even get a genus let alone species on this. I'm thinking its perhaps some kind of crab species given what appears to be four leg sockets on each side. Another thought regarding ID is a lamp shell, Brachiopoda perhaps in the family Terebratulidae? The ruler scale in the photos is in millimeters. Thanks in advance for spending time looking at this and would be happy to answer any questions or provide more photos if needed. Kind regards, Jack

    Hello! I am M3GAL0DON_M4N, a very new fossil hunter and purchaser from Australia. My collection has only being going for about 6 months give or take. I am not too active, apart from on weekends, as I have school (I may go extinct from the homework). I have already posted wayyy too much, as you probably have noticed. I realised that I probably should introduce myself out of politeness. I sadly must admit I won’t really be able to help out, as I am quite new and young. I am always willing to learn from anyone who offers knowledge. I hope that we all learn together, and help each other to greatness in the fossil community.

    Placoderm Trip

    A few weeks ago some friends and I visited a site near Braidwood in southern NSW (3 hours south of Sydney) for middle-late Devonian fish. The site was first published in Ritchie (1984) with the description of Placolepis budawangensis, a phyllolepid known only from this locality. This species is one of the two most common here, with the other being Bothriolepis longi (see Johanson 1999). So far, only these two species have been described from this locality but acanthodian spines and sarcopterygian scales are also known. All fish fossils from this locality occur in within a 75cm band of red siltsone and are mostly just disarticulated plates, but the P. budawangensis holotype is still fairly well articulated. The plates of both species are very recognisable, the Placolepis usually have lovely parallel ridges whereas the Bothriolepis are covered in tiny bumps. Some photos of the siltsone band with some fish plates exposed on top. Peter did a great job on this hole, it's not easy work! The specimens from this locality are quite weathered, so the bone is usually quite poor and doesn't split well. They still look nice, but I chose to dissolve away the bone in hydrochloric acid to latex the cavity for photography. Here are some as found: Placolepis: Bothriolepis: Some bone in cross section (the horizontal black dotted lines): Here are some latex casts of specimens after acid preparation. The latex is blackened with ink, then whitened with ammonium chloride for high contrast photos. Much easier to make out features in these than the unprepared specimens! Bothriolepis longi plates and pectoral fins (compare with figures in Johanson 1999): Placolepis budawangensis: Sarcopterygian scale(?): No idea on this one! After the fish site, we quickly stopped in at a road cutting which yields occasional Devonian plant fossils. Nothing too exciting, but still nice to find some Devonian plants! That's all for now, I might post more ammonium chloride photos when I take the next batch. Hope you enjoyed!

    Yet another mysterious Shark tooth.

    Hello. I am here with another unknown shark tooth. This one I personally found. For a while I believed it to be from Hastalis, but I have doubts after searching it up. It is around 5-3 million years old. It was also found alongside what I believe to be a Scylirhinoid vertebrae.

    Fossil shark vertebrae.

    I found this shark vertebrae on the beach. I believe it is from a Scylirhinoid. Am I correct?
  13. Over the last month I've been staying with my partner in Queensland who lives close to some amazing fossil sites, namely the Redbank Plains Formation. This formation is well known for its Paleocene/Eocene plants, insects, fishes and turtles. It was extensively collected from during the 1900s when the area was mostly comprised of pastures and bushland. Most of the fossils were found in iron-rich mudstone nodules which weathered out of the soil and gullies, although many plants and insects were collected from a clay pit and found directly in white mudstone. Nowadays, much of the formation has been covered by housing development, making it difficult to collect from. One exposure was protected within a council reserve, but fossils in there were difficult to find as they had to naturally weather out of the formation. I didn't have high hopes for finding anything in the area but after scouring geology maps I noticed one exposure which looked promising. It was mapped as Redbank Plains Formation but easily could've just been part of the surrounding Triassic/Jurassic sandstones. After finally being able to visit, we found it to be a new exposure of the Redbank Plains Formation! It didn't yield many fossils but the geology was terrific. At the top, a sandstone horizon which I think still belongs to the Redbank Plains Formation overlies the fossil bearing black carbonaceous shale, with a white clay type horizon below. Some more interesting geology just to the right of where the previous photo was taken. Just above the white clay horizon is a thin layer of tuff, overlain by more carbonaceous shale, then overlain by a thin layer of basalt, with more carbonaceous shale above. A different part of the exposure which was very rich in nodules. Fossils in these nodules were very rare in comparison to other Redbank Plains Formation sites, with just occasional plant material or fish bits. After suffering in the 34˚ summer heat for a few hours, we left in search of a different site a few hours away which yielded nothing. But then, on our way home, we noticed another potential Redbank Plains Formation exposure. This one was much more successful in terms of fossils, and also previously unknown! A partial fish as found in situ. Note the characteristic black shale it has weathered out of. The cross section of fish bones can be seen in this weathered nodule. A leaf, perhaps a Banksia sp.? A mash of fish bone in a nodule we split. Our best find of the day, a beautiful articulated fish! In situ: After some preparation (will post photos of it finished when I complete it). Unfortunately the nodule this was in fractured in many places, a result of the drying mudstone matrix. A tiny fish before and after preparation (also not finished, waiting on a replacement tip for my airscribe). This species is Notogoneus parvus. That is all for now, will update with more photos as I prepare everything! The Queensland Museum has been made aware of this new and potentially significant site, so hopefully it can be protected.
  14. Hi I found a fossil on my families property I grew up on. Just along the creek bed after floods had happened in far north qld. Iv spoken with the qld museum and they have ids through photos and email as pallimnarchus jaw im wondering what something like this is worth and little more information IMG_8453.mov

  16. I found this while holidaying in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia. It was located in a river bed and caught my eye as it looked interesting... I have had it sitting in my car for the last few months but know would like to know if it could be a tooth, fossil, or just a cool looking river rock. It is about 1 1/2 inches long

    Need help IDing some fossils/imprints

    I was given these many years ago by a relative so i unfortunately dont have the location they were found but there is a good chance it was in Australia. I'm hoping someone can help me ID just what is i them. I've put my thoughts for each here under the image names. Fossil 1: Some sort of brachiopod? Fossil Imprints 2: I know its leaves so im just wondering if anyone knows what species they came from? Fossil 3: Possibly some sort of shell? Fossil 4: Incredibly light weight and almost feels chalky. Never been sure whether the fossil in the stone is a plant like some sort of fern or fishbones? Fossil Imprint 5: Obviously a shell. Imprint from an Ammonite or some other shelled creature? Fossil Imprints 6: This is in a big chunk of rock that also features leaf imprints. Same type of stome as Fossil Imprints 2 and from the same location I'd assume. Is this fish skin or something else?
  18. Where would i buy fossils in Australia, money is not a concern but i'm just curious where i would be best off searching. Hayden

    Australia, QLD

    Hello from outback QLD Australia!
  22. Kronosaurus Korner is unveiling a new fossil collection in April. They have noted that it is very rare worldwide. I'm lucky enough to be able to attend! Like and Follow their page https://www.facebook.com/kronok?mibextid=ZbWKwL If I'm able to get a picture at the unveiling I will post in the forum.
  23. Hi all, See attached - most of these are 5-10mm in size (cm/mm ruler in background). Found at/near base of sandstone cliffs near Aireys Inlet, Victoria, Australia. I have previously found Lovenia fossils in the area (and found a couple more today), but these are much smaller and flatter - more like sand dollars? IDs appreciated, and also suggestions re further cleaning - I just soaked them in water (~30min) and tried to remove loose material, but haven't done anything further. Would it be worth soaking/cleaning them further to try to remove more matrix? Also, do you think the small spines/tripods in 2a/2b/23c are the original spines of the sea urchin? I think 4 is probably the top lid of a similar brachiopod to 3/3a - does that seem reasonable? Cheers & thanks in advance, Oli
