  1. Hello Everyone, Newbie here from the Emerald Isle. I finally pulled the trigger and purchased my first fossil—a Green River Diplomystus dentatus with Knightia eocaena. The seller is well-known and highly regarded on this forum so I’m not necessarily concerned with the authenticity, but I am really keen to hear people’s opinions on this specimen. My apologies if this is the wrong place to post. Thanks, Robert
  2. Went up to Douglas Pass, Colorado today for a hike with my wife. I have always hunted for fossils at the Radar Dome location. Today we decided to scout around for another location to collect. Hiked up a very steep hill to a shale exposure and found this larvae after only 1 minute of looking. We had not come prepared today to collect anything. Will probably head back up next weekend. The larvae is approx 2.25 cm across. There are also some parts of other larvae on the piece.
  3. I got this fish with some others in a trade deal the other day; I was supposed to get a mixed box of Diplomystus and Knightia, but this guy stood out for me. Doesn't look like either, and seems a bit too big for Amphiplaga. Maybe juvenile Mioplosus? Anybody? Is there another photo that can help? Thanks for looking!

    Fossil fish wall

    Since I have had more time to get stuff done due to Corona virus downtime I finally put together a fossil fish wall. I collected the specimens a few years ago in Wyoming. Thought I would share
  5. Is it paint or natural?Priscacara liops Green River Formation?thanks
  6. Final got to a Green River fossil that once exposed looks very much like a insect body or insect nymph. Would anybody out there be able to point me in the right direction as to what it actually is?

    fish are freakin hard to prep!

    I am always eager to try new things and develop or expand my skills. I've been putting in a lot of hours doing final prep on Hell Creek bone, and frankly, thats easy compared to these fish! I recently bought some un-prepped green river slabs from Ptychodus04. Since the weather and pandemic have put a halt to most things I began trying my hand at prepping these. Such a difference from working big dino bones! The fish bones are like fossilized hairs and unbelievably fragile. The matrix (on most of these) is extremely soft which makes clearing easy with a scribe, but also easy to blow it ou

    Knightia - both?

    Good evening folks. I have two fish, both listed as Knightia and both from Farson Wyoming. They look similar but they don't look like the same species to me, am I wrong? These are 10 and 11 year old purchases with the first being dug in the 60's from "near Farson" and the second stating it is from the Green River Formation, Farson.

    Green River Fish Amia Head???

    Hello everyone, I'm looking for a second opinion on this piece, a fish head from the green river fauna, while I believe it maybe Amia due to comparisons I'm not to confident, any help/guidance is and will be appreciated.
  11. I just received confirmation from Professor Steven R. Manchester, Curator of Paleobotany Florida Museum of Natural History, that I do in fact have Bonanzacarpum sprungerorum! Special thanks to doushantuo's post (additions to paleocarpological knowledge:The Eocene) that restarted my identification quest and Paleoflor for encouraging me to pursue it. And TTF for giving me the venue to request identification assistance.

    Hiodon falcatus?

    I found this Green River fish at the American Fossil quarry about 4 years ago. I think it could be a Hiodon falcatus, thoughts? Thanks for the help!

    Fossil Fish ID Help

    The seller labels this as a diplomystus from green river but I don't think it is. The fins look wrong to me. What do you guys think?

    Amphiplaga brachyptera?

    I found this Green River fish this fall while at the Warfield quarry. It is too different from a Knightia and the best match I could find is Amphiplaga brachyptera. Thoughts?
  15. What do you all thing about this fossil insect? Real? Fake? Real with paint? It looks like Green River matrix, but I don't know. - edited to add 2 more pics--
  16. Good morning all. I have a fossil that was identified as "plant cross section(?) from Green river". I'm wondering if it's actually a fruit seed pod similar to Bonanzacarpum spungerorum species. It has similar form and shape. I applied a lite coat of easily removeable wax for protection.

    I was thinking this is a Knightia but now I’m not so sure. The body shape seems wrong and it does not appear to be compressed. @Fossildude19 @RJB
  19. Hello everyone. I saw this green river stingray bidding for much less than it is worth on an auction site. I will likely not bid on it, but in case I do I wanted to check it’s authenticity. I know these are not really faked, but it would be quite a large purchase so I just wanted to make sure everything was in order with it. Thank you all!
  20. Hi friends, I'm trying to learn more about Green River fish. Interested to know if anyone sees anything wrong with this fossil (repair, restoration, coloring/painting, composite). The color seems slightly darker to me than the typical Green River fish that I've seen but it's not dark enough for the 18 inch layer fish that I've seen.... so that's part of why I'm curious/asking. Thank your for your insights.
  21. Hello I'm a newbie fossil collector (and newly active member) who happens to several interesting fossils for a decent price from our favorite auctions sites 1st is are Knightia. The seller claims that they are not restored or enhanced 2nd set are 4 Spinosaurus teeth. The seller claims that cracks have been repaired, but no restoration or composition has been made (Pictures 2-9 of teeth in pairs) 3rd is a Lycoptera which the seller claims is not restored or enhanced 4th are plates of Elrathia Trilobites from Wheeler Formation 5th are Fossil Ferns from Llewellyn Formation 6th is a
  22. Hey everybody! I realized I never made a thread for my internship at the Field Museum in Chicago this summer. I interned as a fossil preparator under Akiko Shinya in the McDonald’s Fossil Preparation Laboratory (that’s the “fish bowl” lab on the second floor right next to Evolving Planet with the big window). There were some amazing things being prepared in the lab - an Antarctic Lystrosaurus, lots of Dicynodonts, Green River fish (some massive Phareodus), Sauropod femurs and ribs, a massive slab containing several sturgeon and paddlefish - but I’m not sure if I am allowed to post p
  23. Hello Everyone, I am facing a bit of a dilemma. Husband is getting me a trip to go dig fossils for my 40th birthday!! Now, the dilemma of choosing where to go! My dream has always been to go to Green River formation for fishes.... however, here locally I am used to finding marine fossils only (North Texas), and another option would be to go with a certain Adventure group in South Dakota for some variety. I love prepping the delicate fishes, and think the Green River experiences would give more to take home with. Anyone here have any experience, or advice? I want TO DO BOTH!!
  24. Here is another update from my July 2019 solo Fossil run! (Edit...it appears some of the fossil pictures are displaying poorly....I will rectify this shortly.) PICTURE HEAVY Day 1: I drove solo from Omaha, NE to Fossil Butte National Monument. I left at 0300 local and made it to the Museum at the monument about 45 minutes before they closed at 1800 local. The museum is outstanding. Small, but amazing. Also, unlike most other national parks and monuments, it is FREE and open 7 days a week during the summer. I didn't take any photos as A, I was exhausted, and B, there are
  25. Hi we are newbies, went to Kemerer and found a lot of fish, and a slab with a tree branch (about a foot long 6 " wide). YOu can see patterns of the bark, but it is very faint. I am not sure if we should remove the covering and see if there is a darker layer under the stone? As it was a fairly larger specimen it may be more 3 dimensional. Any Suggestions? Any one have ideas? (On the fish I have heard 1:6 and 1:20 diluted wood glue is that correct?
