    Pachycormidae indet. - 'Hypsocormus' sp.

    From the album: Oxford Clay Fauna

    Pachycormidae WOODWARD 1895 indet. Jurassic, Callovian Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member [ A ] Orton Pit [ B ] Hampton Lakes, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK Teeth from indeterminate, predatory pachycormid fish. Likely pertaining to either 'Hypsocormus' leedsi SMITH & WOODWARD 1889 or 'Hypsocormus' tenuirostris SMITH & WOODWARD 1889, which can be distinguished only by characters of the rostrum. Neither species actually belongs to Hypsocormus WAGNER 1860 according to MAXWELL et al. 2020, but are closer to more derived, macropredatory pachycormids like Orthocor

    Caturus megadontus (?=Osteorachis leedsi)

    From the album: Oxford Clay Fauna

    Caturus ?megadontus MARTILL 1985 (?= ?Osteorachis leedsi WOODWARD 1897) Jurassic, Callovian Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member Kings dyke, Whittlesey, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, UK A tooth of the large, macropredatory caturid Caturus ?megadontus MARTILL 1985. MARTILL & HUDSON 1991 consider this species potentially synonymous with the contemporaneous and highly fragmentary caturid ?Osterorachis leedsi WOODWARD 1897, which would make ‘Caturus leedsi’ the valid name for this taxon.
  4. Hi Everyone - I came across this Camarasaurus vertebra and was curious how much restoration has been done to it. I'm trying to train my eye for Morrison Formation material which can be a little tricky .

  9. Hi all! Those who follow my reports know I was planning another trip to Ulyanovsk in spring. Well, here is the report, in continuation of 1, 2 and 3. This time I was on the shore for 3 days. In short, the weather was fine, the ice abundant, the competition high and the finds scarce. The trip felt more like an extravagant outing than a productive fossil hunt

    Oxford Clay Metriorhynchid Teeth

    Hey everyone! Continuing from the other ID thread, I’d like to hear your opinions on another recent acquisition from the Oxford Clay: a group of associated metriorhynchid teeth. Now, there are several metriorhynchid taxa described from the Oxford Clay Formation: Gracilineustes leedsi, Ieldraan melkshamensis, Suchodus brachyrhynchus, Suchodus ?durobrivensis, Thalattosuchus superciliosus, and Tyrannoneustes lythrodectikos. Pretty much all of them have decent descriptions of their dentition available, so comparing these teeth to the literature facilitates the

    Marine reptile tooth ID Lyme Regis

    Hi all, Bought this tooth online a while back. It was sold to me as "Ichthyosaurus platyodon" (which I understand to mean Temnodontosaurus platyodon) from Lyme Regis. Likely found by the seller themselves, as I know they occasionally collect fossils there. However, for the following reasons, I'm not sure about this attribution: Overall, the tooth doesn't look like your typical ichthyosaur tooth to me: It has more of an oval rather than round cross-section It's labolingually flattened Messial and distal carinae run the full length of the cr
  12. Here are a few recent plant finds from the Early Jurassic East Berlin Formation in Hartford County, Connecticut. Possible plant ID's include Brachyphyllum/Pagiophyllum, Loperia simplex, possible leaf?? (circled red), Equisetum, Cheirolepidaceae. Comments, identifications, or corrections are greatly appreciated.
  13. Hi all, a few pics of some stained glass lamps, clocks, and panels I have been making with thinly sliced ammonites inlaid. thanks. Neil.

    Hi all, after seeing all these nice collections from other members I also want to share the collection of my father and I with you. The collections is of various time periods and sites. We started collecting in 2009 close to home in a quarry nearby Maastricht called 't Rooth (sadly this quarry is close for visitors since 2016). From there on we started visiting other quarries and the collection started too grew massively. We frequently visited the ENCI, Winterswijk and Solnhofen. I will start off with some of the display cabinets

    Ksar Metlili theropod tooth

    Hi guys I picked up this tooth recently from Morroco. It’s approximately 6cm long (Just a little short) The tooth is said to come from the High atlas region in morroco, Talsint, Figuig province. The Ksar metlili formation (140-152 MYA) making the tooth Upper Jurassic - Lower Cretaceous. On mesial side 10 serrations per 5mm and distal 9 serrations per 5mm. Base of tooth is slightly damaged but looks ovalish. Some wear to top of tooth. I know some of these teeth actually come from the Dekker formation and could possibly be synonymous with the Kem Kem beds - so could the t

    Was really thinking freeway travel center souvenirs when I found this one any help would be great.. I did enhance the images just a bit as in contrast and brightness to better show it.
  17. Me and my boyfriend made the drive to Whitby yesterday for the first time. We spent about 3 hours fossil hunting at Saltwick Bay. We made some nice finds but we only found one of the really nice Whitby ammonites at the end of the trip which is the main reason I wanted to go to Whitby. There were plenty of ammonite fragments about but we struggled to find the famed ammonite bearing nodules (though we did pick up a few small and low quality ones, will need prep and not worth posting here). We did pick up a couple of shale plates with some nice bivalves and flattened ammonites. I did

    Unidentified Jurassic marine reptile bone

    Hi all, I've had the below piece in my collection for a number of years now, having acquired it thinking it was a juvenile plesiosaur propodial. It comes from the Oxford Clay of Peterborough and is of Callovian Jurassic age. However, when recently doing some research towards answering another question on TFF, I realised that - even though there's some plastic deformation going on - it doesn't quite look like the juvenile plesiosaur propodial I have from the rhaetic at Aust, nor does it look like a plesiosaur propodial

    What species of Ammonita is it?

    Hello everybody: I recently got this nice specimen of Ammonita from Northern Morocco. I am not so sure about the identity, but my guess is that is Hildoceras sp. I wonder if anyone might be inclined to help me to get a proper identification. The person who got it, back in 1995, told me that the specimen is from the Jurassic, but he was not able to provide me a specific name. Perhaps Hildoceras laticosta? Thank you in advance, Best regards, Benifossil2021
  24. I was in the Wutach area again. A couple of weeks ago I posted a report about my adventures in the Aubach, and today I decided to scramble up the Krottenbach in the hopes of finding some Jurassic fossils. This creek isn't quite as wild as the Aubach, so I managed within 5 hours to move upstream to the point I was hoping to reach, despite the odd tree dam blocking the way. There were 2 huge landslides which inundated the area about 60 years ago and brought down a lot of detritus from the Middle Jurassic in the cliffs on both sides of the valley, so even tho

    Crinoid(?) from the Cotswolds, UK.

    I was just milling about, splitting Cotswold stone, when this caught my eye. In my swimming seas of gastropods, echinoids, crinoids, brachiopods, and bivalves, I've never come across anything like this! If anyone could shed some light, I would be much obliged. Early Oxfordian in ages, found in the Ancholme group. Around it were these fragmented plates of molluscs. It looks like a crushed stem of perhaps a crinoid? If it requires better photos, I can crack out the old camera and take a few! Cheers, Isaac
