    Crustacean Prep

    Hi Everyone, Found this at the NSR last weekend. I would really like to remove some of the grey matrix but that is beyond my skill set. Do not wan to ruin any of it. So, how would I go about stabilizing it? I use clear Elmers glue for the bones and some ammonites but not sure about soaking this in that mixture. Any help is appreciated.

    Possible crab fossil?

    Can anyone ID this please? Found in Surrey, England on farmland/woodland. Possibly the underside of a crab? Thanks

    Mississippian Isopod?

    I run across these guys frequently in the Mississippian Redwall Limestones around Arizona's Verde Valley. They are generally accompanied by lots of Crinoids and solitary Rugose Corals. They're always this oval shape with segmented structure. They look like an isopod, to me, but could be some other crustacean. Any help out there for the identification of these "bugs?"

    Coprolite or crawfish burrow?

    Galveston Bay Texas, Beaumont Formation late Pleistocene I've got a couple of these I'd like opinions on. Here's the first...
  7. Out of the countless New Jersey cretaceous crab claws I've seen and found this has to be one of the strangest claw partials yet. Seems to be an ornamented shell as apposed to the smooth claw textures that are typically found. Definitely a very interesting piece, anyone have any ideas on a possible species or if any ornamental crabs have found in nj cretaceous, or any other new jersey cretaceous hunters ever come across one similar? Definitely a head scratcher

  9. Hello all! I have two weird ones I found in Monmouh County New Jersey (Cretaceous). The crustacean is interesting to me because I was initially thinking Hoploparia gabbi however, it is over twice as wide as any other specimen I have found (comparison pictures below). It was suggested that another lobster, Linuparus, could be an option but we really weren't sure. This measures 2.5 inches The other one measures .75 inches and has one cutting edge and an oval base. What is holding me back from saying Xiphactinus is the fact that it isn't fluted and only has one cutting edg

    mysterious pellet clusters

    I recently found this coral (I'm calling it Platycyathus vancouverensis until I learn otherwise) at my local site, Mt. Tzuhalem (Haslam Fm, Santonian), with apparently a cluster of pellets inside the 'cup' formed by the septa on the top side. Usually only the rounder bottom side is exposed when I find these corals, as the septa tend to hold onto their matrix. I'll try for better pics if needed, but it's tough! Note that they are all quite small - less than a millimeter. Another specimen that I've had for longer, with septa exposed (more or less), seems to have less obvious bump
  11. Hi Everyone, I've been working through quite a bit of shale from the Stark member and have a specimen I would like your thoughts on. My brain sees a crustacean claw due to the shape, but I think its more likely that it's a fin. What do ya'll think I have here? Dimensions are 1 cm by 1 cm. My "holding the phone camera to my microscope lens" method isn't working so well, so here's a rough outline of the shape: And the counterpart from the split Thanks,
  12. This fossil was found on a Gold Coast beach in 2019. I'm thinking Pliocene as it's like most of my beach fossil finds. It's a curiosity as it has some crystals inside the carapace. Any thoughts on this? Thankyou!
  13. Found fossil in stream in Eureka, Missouri, USA. Does anyone know what the fossil may be? It is about 1/2 inch.
  14. This is an interesting animal that many are not even aware exists in the Mazon Creek deposit. It is a fossil gooseneck barnacle named Illilepas damrowi. Barnacles are known from as early as the Cambrian but are relatively rare in the fossil record. A barnacle is actually a crustacean and are distantly related to lobsters. Modern gooseneck barnacles also have a similar taste to lobster. Like all gooseneck barnacles, Illilepas has a stalk like body and a calcareous head region consisting of plates called a scotum and Tergum. In life, the animals appendages would extend out
  15. Hi all, I recently got this crab as a gift from a Burmese friend. He said it came from the Rakhine State, western shore of Myanmar. He said his friend found it there. Unfortunately, neither of them kept any extra provenance detail about it. I can find no info whatsoever about this crab online. I don't think Myanmar fossils outside of amber have easily accessible documentation. This crab looks like it might be a Galene bispinosa. Does anyone know what species it is, and what age or formation it possibly came from? Thank you.

    Mazon ID Help

    Having trouble making an ID on this one, unmarked in an old collection. I'm hoping that someone will recognize it instantly! My guess: Acanthotelson.
  17. I found this in Big Sky, MT and after cleaning it up a bit, saw what looks like a couple crawfish tails and possibly a head of a vertebrate. It is 4cm by 3.5cm and no more than 1cm in thickness.

    Jurassic oddity

    Hi.... Hope everyone is ok and finding some decent fossils.... I'm really struggling identifying what this could be found in lower Jurassic shales from the sinemurian Somerset coast.... It's such a distinct shape I would of thought it might ring a bell to someone.... I'm thinking a carapace segment or bony fish armour plates perhaps... Any help appreciated.... Thanks....

    Post Oak Creek

    I hit my honey hole at Post Oak Creek Texas again. I found a few good Ptychodus teeth, another crustacean and my first giant armadillo scute. it was worth the 5 hr round trip.
  20. This is another piece discovered at an estate sale, which of course means I do not have the info such as location it was found, etc. It has some amazing detail, spiny legs? but it's so squished into the matrix I have no idea what it could be. Hope to receive more info. The piece is approx. 6 x 4"

    Hi guys I need help...

    Hi guys, I need help identifying what i think might be a fossilized Lobster tail and maybe a part of another unknown crustacean.

    Found in South of France

    Found two of these similar shaped stones. They both have the resemblance a tooth. Curious if anyone has any insight. They were found in Charente, France. They seem to be possible internal molds of crustacean. I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any information on this. Thank you!
  24. Hi all I found this at Post Oak Creek in Sherman, TX, this weekend. I'm unsure of what it is--maybe part of a crustacean (quarter for reference). There are two "sockets" on either side of the flat portion. Any help with an ID would be much appreciated (a fossilized shrimp part has been floated). Thanks!
