    Proboscidean tooth?

    Hi! I'm having trouble ID-ing this ~4.4cm long mammal tooth from China. It was labelled as Playbelodon, though the lack of cusps makes me doubt that assessment. I'm starting to wonder if it's a Proboscidean at all, and if it's an entirely different family of mammal alltogether. Does anyone have an idea on what this could potentially be?
  2. As the title says, I bought this tooth fragment last year from a retailer who I know has been wrong in identifying fossils before (I corrected them on hippo species). I know it's not much to go on, but do you think mastodon or gomphothere?

    Possible gomphothere tooth fragment

    I found this partial tooth at Myrtle Beach today. I think worn gomphothere, but having never handled one I'm not sure.
  4. This is a tooth fragment I'm thinking of buying, and it's advertised as gomphothere. But it also looks mastodon to me. Thoughts?
  5. Tammy and I have been volunteering at the Montbrook dig site in north-central Florida every Wednesday and Saturday for a while. We're part of a small group of local volunteer diggers who've been able to dig the site during the pandemic. We have a maximum of 6 people at the site with 4 volunteers (aka retired people who'd rather not golf or watch daytime TV) and 2 from the museum. Over the last couple of weeks we've worked to take out several gomphothere bones that have turned up in the grid squares that we've been working. Two Saturdays ago we started the jacket on the remaining part of a gomp

    Proboscidea foot bone?

    ID help appreciated. Found diving near Venice Beach, Florida.

    A 2nd look

    Fossils with questions are tossed in a special bucket for thinking about when hunting opportunities start drying up. That time has come. Here a couple: The question: Mastodon or Gomph; I have found Gomph fragments in this location. Another 2 inch fossil, that I almost threw away!! Laying in the sieve, I thought it was unidentifiable bone, but then noted the odd ends. So Bone or Tooth .... If you decided tooth for this 2nd one, you might check out the fossils in this old thread!!! Thanks for all responses.

    Gompy dig this March

    Hey all! If the weather is good I'll be digging an old site the Nebraska border in Dallas, SD. Excavation around 1917 produced fish, horse, rhinoceros, and gomphothere material. I've been out prospecting the land and found pieces of ivory, bone frags, and tortoise fragments as well. I have written permission to collect and excavate there, does any want to join for a week of digging?
  10. So, I volunteered to help excavate Gomphotheres or Rhinos or something from 6-10 myas under the guidance of Richard Hulbert and the University of Florida's Paleontology department. Yesterday was the last day of the October, 2017 to May 2018 digging season. It is intended to avoid the wet and rainy season. I am pleased that my work would help advance the dig, but I volunteered because I thought that I would enjoy it, and I did. I was given great directions and I arrived at the site just before 10 am. It was on a Horse/Cattle farm out in the middle of rural Florida. It was basically f
  11. I am on a Trip to University of Florida at Gainesville Research & Collections Laboratory for Vertebrate, Invertebrate, and Paleobiology. This was today. Pretty busy with a Haile Quarry trip in the morning and then on Sunday a volunteer at a University of Florida fossil dig. Enough time to share some of the best photos... Most of this will be delayed until I am back home on Monday Photo #1 Teleoceras Photo# 2 Gomphothere Photo# 3 Possibly new ancestor of Gomphothere Photo# 4 Gomphothere Photo# 5 Baby Teleoceras Ph
  12. Got this jacket into my prep lab yesterday night, and couldn't stop myself from starting in on it today. The specimen is likely a Gomphothere scapula, with most of the articulating end intact. The matrix is a very poorly cemented sandstone, when exposed to surface conditions it becomes essentially loose sand but a few inches deep it gets decently solid. Most of the prep I did today was just using a dull small chisel to push away the matrix
  13. We got back out to the scapula jacket yesterday! The jacket we put on during a lull in the blizzard held exceptionally well. Fair weather for a change this time, the rancher had been joking about inviting us over whenever his land needed some rain (every time we've shown up before we've been rained our snowed out). We took our sweet time undercutting the jacket just to be on the safe side, then got it flipped and in the car in about an hour and a half of work.

    Pleistocene Proboscidean Tooth

    I found this today in a coastal Early Pleistocene deposit in South Carolina. I was thinking mammoth when I found it, but now I think it may be something else? It doesn’t have the characteristic rows of a mammoth tooth.
  15. I've written trip reports before about volunteering with the Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH) at their various dig sites in Florida. The currently (very) active site is called Montbrook for a small town that used to be in the area (but is no more). Here are a few links from FLMNH which provide some contextual information about the site: https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/museum-voices/montbrook/ https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/florida-vertebrate-fossils/sites/mont/ https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/museum-voices/montbrook/2016/09/07/why-montbrook/ The site has yielded an im

    Gomph in NEW MEXICO.

    Gomphonthere or Mastodon?

    Hi Everyone, Looking for a little help identifying a tooth I purchased at a recent Florida fossil show. It was labelled Mastodon but I was wondering if it might be Gomphothere? It was found in one of the rivers in Florida I understand which means it could have been either as I understand it. Couldn't find an easy identifier online. Thanks in advance Tom
  19. Hello, I need a little help identifying these Gomphothere teeth. The first one is Miocene age, from Bosnia and Herzegovina. I am not sure where the second one is from. Thanks in advance! Sincerely, Jay
  20. Has there been any latest word on the systematics of gomphotheriine gomphotheres from North America? As far as I know, Shoshani et al. (2006) list Serridentinus as separate from Gomphotherium in their cladistic analysis of Eritreum, and I've also read that the Gomphotherium from New Mexico could represent multiple species (Heckert et al. 2000), and that Lambert and Shoshani list some North American gomphotheres synonymized with Gomphotherium by Tobien (1973) as distinct from Gomphotherium (e.g. Gnathabelodon, Eubelodon, Megabelodon). Heckert, A.B., S.G. Lucas and G.S. Morgan (2000). Specimens
  21. This tooth most likely came from the Khorat Plateau of Thailand which seem to find abundance of Gomphothere teeth there. Although this tooth seem to look a little different than the usual Gomphothere tooth I see, so could it be a from different creature or simply a variation of the tooth or preservation state that make it looks a little different from what I am used to, what do u guys think? Thx
