  1. Hello everyone! Here I am with another mystery bone from the boulonnais (Wimereux) region - North of France. The layers here are kimmeridgian and titonian (late Jurassic). I have a few pieces that I’ve collected over the course of 3 days all at the same spot. I managed to match the first three pieces, with two pieces that I already glued together since I was 100% sure of how they fit together. The first two pieces together: Then, I have this third piece that also match but I didn’t find the perfect angle to glue them yet: And together, they would look like this: Total size would be 15 cm broad and 20+cm long (that’s 6 inch broad and 8 inch long). Now I was thinking about part of (distal end) a plesiosaur propodial. But I’ve found a couple plesiosaur and pliosaur propodial from there and they are way flatter at the end. Also, they are mostly the same shape on both sides. Whereas here the « upper part » (the two pieces already glued together) are chunky on one side and flatter on the other side. Has anyone got an idea? Thank you very much!
  2. Hello everyone! Here’s another mystery (to me at least) from the Kimmeridgian (?) of Wimereux, North of France. It doesn’t seem to be bone. Is it a shell, plant, crab or something else? Thank you for your help!

    New British pliosaur skull revealed

    A new pliosaur from the Kimmeridgian deposits at Kimmedige has just been revealed to the world! Rumours have been going around about it for some time, but now the source of the rumours has been revealed, and it's spectacular! Belonging to the genus Pliosaurus, to judge from it's age and tooth morphology, it's one of the best preserved - if not best preserved - skull of its kind! https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-67650247?fbclid=IwAR3ukvNzGPSxBdhBp3Z3zrIEJZEbDki1ezYhSrCaLjpYVUIsc_nOGPexuDs

  12. Hi all! This time I'd like to inform you on a short, but diverse trip to several Volga river locations. The finds were not too impressive unlike the weather, endless fields and various outcrops. First I went to the southern part of Ulyavovsk Volgian shore: (These are Hauterivian concretions. They are roundish in form) These are Volgian Volgian boulders Beige rocks are Volgian, overlaying black clay is Hauterivian. Volgian section ends nearby (to the left) as the corresponding rocky layers gradually go underground

  17. Hi all! As winter is getting nearer I tried to catch the last glimpses of summer and went for a one-day trip to the Volga river, taking advantage of unusually low water level and a good weather forecast combination. And I wasn't disappointed with scenery and finds, which I'd like to share with you. Last warm days of November before snow cover:
  18. From the album: Vertebrates

    Aspidorhynchus acutirostris (Blainville, 1818) Late Jurassic Kimmeridgian (late) - Tithonian (early) Painten Formation Painten Bavaria Germany This fish lies in an extremely soft rock and was very difficult to prepare. At the slightest touch (even with a small brush) scales could come off. Unfortunately the top of the skull is slightly dislocated.

    Warmed fossils

    Hi all! Today I'll show you a site which is quite similar to the subject of the Frozen Fossils topic, but somewhat opposite of the latter, as it's only accessible in summer (end of July- beginning of September). It's situated in the historical city of Vladimir on the Klyazma river. The banks are overgrown with vegetation, no movement whatsoever on the river and very few people visible. Occasional ducks and herons, fish splashing nearby.The bridge is the only reminder of civilization. The river bed is surprisingly formed of solid clay you can confidently walk on. The age of this clay is Lower Kimmeridgian (mostly the 1st bauhini/baylei zone which is pretty rare in European Russia)

    a few recent preps

    It has been a while since I've posted anything. Not a lot of finds recently. But I've done some prepwork: 1st a little cenomanian ammonite from the chalk: Shloenbachia varians Cap-Blanc-Nez and an other ammonite, from the Kimmeridgian deposits on the French coast: probably Pectinatites sp. I had to consolidate the back, the fossil started to crack during the prep.

    Fossilised wood?

    Hello! I hesitate to post after my last terrible misidentification of fossilised wood, but your kind help made me study harder, learn more, look harder - thank you! So I’m back with another request - I think I might have actually found wood this time? These are all from the Kimmeridgian Helmsdale Boulder Beds or nearby Portgower Boulder Beds, Scotland, UK. Dark photos are wet, mostly they go quite pale when dried out. In this case, I know wood is a known find in these areas, and I’ve found a scant few photos from seasoned collectors / geologists of finds from these locations said to be fossil wood that looks similar. But I’ve turned into the biggest pessimist and there was only a small amount of info to go on. If anyone would be kind enough to just confirm either way, I’d be so grateful (thank you!).
