    Fossilized seashells?

    I have little to no experience with invertebrates so I was hoping to get a little info from the experts here. I recently rescued these and some other items from going into the dumpster. The only information I have on them is that they were from a collection of an avid fossil hunter who lived in the South Dakota Nebraska area and passed away many years ago. I have quite a few more of these shells with a couple of them being encased in some hard matrix that I will post later in another thread. There was also a big chunk of hash plate with them.
  2. I’m posting some invertebrates that I collected in the 1970s from the Miocene of Maryland and Virginia. If I had continued to collect invertebrates from the Miocene of Maryland and Virginia I would have many thousands of specimens. However, after I found my first few shark teeth, my interests shifted to vertebrate fossils. You can see in the below picture lots of coral like Astrhelia palmata , barnacles (Balanus concavus), Murex Snail shells (like the Maryland State Fossil Ecphora gardnerae gardnerae), Turret Snail shells (Turritella plebeian), Bittersweet Clam shells (Glycymeris parilis),
  3. Thanks to my recent forays into the depths of paleontology academia, a new contact at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln sent me the link to this free publication. While the art is a bit, um...well, you will see, I had my reservations...but this is a handy guide for fossil hunters, particularly newbies and youngsters in my opinion. While written with Nebraska inverts in mind, it will be a useful reference for just about anyone. I admit, i learned a few things!

  4. Hello everyone, These were all found in St. Claire, PA. Mahantango Formation. Anybody know what these are? #1. Looks like octopus suckers in brown outline. Is it a coral? #2. Crinoid star stems? #3. Cylindrical molds, what are these?
  5. Hi All. I was unsure where to put this message so hopefully this place is okay. I teach 7th grade Life Science and we are soon starting our coverage of major animal types (arthropods, echinoderms, molluscs, chordtates, etc). I am hoping to put together a teaching collection that can be used each year as we do this. If there are members here who are willing to donate any/all types of durable specimens (harder for young teens to destroy) that could be used to teach students the key features of these phyla. If you are willing and able to share can you please PM me directly. I do appreciate

    Crockett/Stone City unknowns

    Hello all! I made my first trip to the famous Eocene Texas location a few weeks ago and have a few things that remain a mystery to me. I have perused the forum and was able to ID most of my finds from jkfoam's informative replies and many topics from other members. However, several of the gastropods below resemble species I have already identified, but they're not quite the same, so I'm unsure exactly what they are. Not all the images have a scale, but they are all micro fossils under half a centimeter in length. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer! (1) I know thi

    France pyrite ammonite id

    I was given this ammonite from France as a gift,a small part is gone outside.Does anyone know what species or age this is? Sorry but I dont have the formations and age. Also a short question,if I put it in a bag would it prevent pyrite disease?
  8. HI. Folks! I'm going nutz behind my mask--and I have a trip to Miss. and Ala. scheduled.... never been to either state, and wondered if anyone can suggest areas for a legal hunt or two while I'm there? I'd appreciate any tips, particularly with specific directions. Thanks! Barby
  9. Help request! I am putting together a tool for judging rock age based on very crude, whole-rock, hand-sample observations of fossil faunas/floras -- the types of observations a child or beginner could successfully make. I view this as a complement to the very fine, species-level identifications commonly employed as index fossils for individual stages, biozones, etc. Attached is what I've got so far, but I can clearly use help with corals, mollusks, plants, vertebrates, ichnofossils, and the post-Paleozoic In the attached file, vibrant orange indicates times in earth history to com

  11. Hey everyone! I have a couple recent finds that I would appreciate your input on. I’m currently unsure of the formation that these fossils come from. I found this outcrop underneath a parking lot. It’s orange conglomeratic sandstones which makes me think Hookton Formation which would place it somewhere around 450,000 ybp. Scale is in inches.
  12. Hi everyone, I haven't been able to post much lately as I've been ill for a few months so haven't been getting out hunting as much as I'd like but I've had some good luck when I have been able to get out so wanted to share some finds! All are from the Carboniferous of the Midland Valley of Scotland from several formations, I haven't gotten round to photographing everything yet so I'll post some more stuff over the next few days. First some finds from the Lower Carboniferous/Mississippian marine Blackhall Limestone. Undescribed jellyfish, Fife Coast, 3cm across. Apparently a paper d
  13. I recently saw a wonderful diagram showing the fossil ranges of various scleractinian coral architectures, or at least the ranges of genera typical of those architectures. But now I can't seems to find it again... The diagram included images of the various coral growth forms and was simpler than but otherwise similar to this: If anyone knows where I might have seen such a diagram, please post the url here -- thanks!
  14. Here is a thread to share some of your rarest partials that if whole would've been incredible specimens, but you know how it is sometimes... Yet they still amazing to own a piece of. I will start off by sharing a piece of the tail of a Probolichas Kristiae, an incredibly unique looking rare lichid trilobite from Oklahoma that would've of been incredible if whole of course yet this piece still has amazing detail and I am more that happy to own
  15. Dear FFers: I’ll be in Bakersfield for the week before Christmas, spending some time looking for shark teeth on the hill and doing some research and reporting for Fossil News magazine. I was wondering whether anyone would be willing to share me any information about publicly accessible invert sites within an hour or so of there. I have a vague memory of reading that there were some road cuts with freshwater and marine mollusks, but I’ve no specific information. I was also wondering whether it was still possible to get permission from Chevron to visit the Ket
  16. Any idea of the type of this marine invertebrate ? Most probably marine worms and Pleistocenic but any sugestion welcome.

    Florida Fossil Shells

    I don't know where to begin. I am completely new to the forum. I will eventually be posting some fossils for help with ID and others that are identified by experts already. Having said that, this poster represents some of my fossils. I am not sure if can even read the names underneath. I may have to post separately. Any ID corrections would be graciously accepted. What I really need help with is locations. While living in FL for several years, I would go to a couple of locations in Polk Co. where I knew road base, I believe it is called aggregates were often kept. I visited and collected. What

    Weird fossil - what's dis den?

    Hello! I found this on the beach today. It's a great site for Belemnites, bivalves and the occasional Ammonite. The beach here is at the head of an estuary which enjoys big tidal surges. So many of the fossils have been washed along the coast from well known Jurassic sites like Whitby. They're usually ocean polished and removed from any cortex by the sea. So this little guy is about and Inch and half long. It looks like a lobster claw, but surely a fossil lobster claw wouldn't be this well preserved? It's definitely stone and gives a
  19. It's been a few years of hunting for me now. What began as a spontaneous trip to North Sulphur River, spurred by childhood nostalgia, has become something of a gnawing beast that constantly nibbles at the corner of my consciousness. What will the weather be like this weekend? When will I have another three-day break? Is the car road-trip ready? Do I have the right foot ware for the locale? Is that unprepped fossil an ammonite or a nautilus? When will I finally find my first mosasaur tooth? And on and on... I've often wondered if this is a pre-midlife crisis. The time I get to spend
  20. Hey guys! I actually missed a week of uploading, but Cris and I got back at it and went to one of our new creek sites for some more exploration! Unfortunately, we gave it a good go and didn't find anything great. So we literally went after dark to some of our trusty old road sites where fill material is used as road fill. This turned out to be an absolutely amazing decision, and ended up being one of our best hunts on the roads to date! This video is chock-full of weirdness, and great finds! Give it a watch when you get some time
  21. Dear Canadian Fossil Collectors, Some of you may have heard that the ROM is finally going to open an invertebrate gallery, something that has been sadly missing for many years. There was a recent announcement of a $5 million (Canadian I assume) donation for this project. https://www.rom.on.ca/en/about-us/newsroom/press-releases/royal-ontario-museum-receives-landmark-5-million-gift-to-establish This is a great move on the part of the ROM. Jean-Bernard Caron has contacted me regarding the new exhibition. We have communicated both by email and phone. It seems that

    Matoaka Beach 11/07/18

    Hi all, I finally made the trek to Matoaka Beach, a fossil collecting site along the Calvert Cliffs on the Western Shore of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. The beach is accessible to the public for $5 per person per day. Once we arrived, we reported to the front office where the property owner and his adorable newborn daughter were happy to collect our fee and give us access to the beach along with advice on how to best hunt the grounds. He advised us to head North (left of the entrance), which was what I had also read online. Apparently, the farther North you head, the better the
  23. Hello, I have been a long time member of the fossil forum, but I have never posted before. I live in south Florida and I am planning on making a trip up to northwestern Georgia, northeastern Alabama, and southeastern Tennessee for two or three days and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on fossil hunting sites in the region. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi everyone, i have those two from eocene marl layers, can you identify them ?
  25. Hi Everyone, I suddenly have a work trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota coming up next week and I'd like to get out and collect some fossils along the way. I'm driving from Denver to Lead, SD and will be driving north on HW 85 and 18 through Newcastle. I'd be really happy to get a few stops in along the way and any potential information would really be great. Unfortunately, I won't have a ton of time to be able to stop and really dig, so some road cuts or target formations would be super helpful for surface collecting. I'm open to every type of fossil.
