  1. I wanted to share these two lobster fossils I've found. The prepwork was done by my friend Hannah. Both nodules were split and prepped back together. Two Lobster claws and random body parts from Kettleness. A beautiful lobster claw from Saltwick Bay. There is also another claw preserved under still in the rock.

    Fossil lobster

    Hi guys, found this over the summer from bed 17 of the atherfield clay near atherfield point (not the usual bed where the common lobsters come from! Much rarer and bigger) and was wondering if anyone could tell me the species, thanks ! (I just got it prepped and am considering entering it for fossil of the month.
  3. Wondering if anyone could help get species identification for these 4 fossils. Thanks for reading
  4. Imagine my surprise when I cracked open a beach pebble last week and these two beautifully preserved 180m year old lobster claws were revealed. I was expecting an ammonite but these ancient claws will do. Eryma Species
  5. This fossil crustacean was collected in England on the foreshore between Lyme Regis and Charmouth, amongst the algae-covered large boulders that are exposed at low tide. It looks to be in some kind of phosphatic nodule. The cream-colour of the matrix is quite unlike the dark Jurassic rocks that make this region famous. I was thinking it is unlikely to be from the Jurassic layers, and probably originates from the overlying Cretaceous sequences higher up in the cliffs? Both Gault Clay and Upper Greensand (Albian in age) unconformably sit above the Jurassic beds. Does anyone know which of these deposits are known to produce crustacean specimens with this type of preservation and lithology in the Lyme Regis area? Thanks for any input!

    Small and large lobster?

    This is from a basement construction project in southwest corner of Wisconsin. We literally dug out a hundreds of thousands of fossils, 4' underground. They were in a 3-8" thick layer of concrete along with a type of brown sand/dirt full of other fossil parts. Out of the 6 hills of earth approx 12' high each, only the first hill is dirt. The other 5 are nothing but fossil's! I'm completely green to the fossil world so I'm doing my best here lol. In this particular rock I noticed several small 1" lobster things. Then I noticed what looked like bigger legs. One leg goes through a hole and out the other side (pretty cool) Ask me anything else and I'll answer as well as I'm able. Thanks. I'm sure I'll have endless questions as we pick through this rubble.
  7. I found this listed as a cretaceous lobster from the Kiowa Formation in Kansas. I didn't have much success finding anything similar with some quick research, do any of you guys know what exactly we're looking at here?

    Partial Lobster from Ramanessin Brook

    From the album: Cretaceous

    Hoploparia gabbi Partial Lobster (just under 3.5 inches long) Upper Cretaceous Wenonah Formation Matewan Group Ramanessin Brook Holmdel, N.J. A gift from Ralph Johnson- an unprepared specimen in a concretion- later, partially prepared by this writer.

    Big Brook NJ Huge Lobster Claw or ???

    Sifting Big Brook today and this came up from a deep dig. It has the look of a Lobster claw or Shrimp claw, which are usually only half inch in length or so. This specimen is roughly 3 inches long and about 1-3/4 in diameter at thickest and 1-inch at thinnest point. Its actually pretty heavy. There's noticeable ridges on each side near the edge and looks like little nubs almost like on lobster claws. Cretaceous era fossils normally in the stream. What could it be?

    Enoploclytia wintoni (?)
  12. Here is my small collection of fossil mud-lobster. I know they are very very common but still find they are fascinating to look at. They are all from Gunn point , Northern Territory (Australia). From the last photo, I can see some soft tissues exposed and preserved. Can I please ask, under what circumstances, the soft tissues can be preserved? Because I am not sure of its age (probably 17000??), I don’t know if they are fossil or just sub fossil? Thanks in advance ️
  13. Howdy! I recently went to Post Oak creek, and ended up with more matrix than I can immediately use. Rather than let it sit unsearched, I figured it was worth a shot to post some up for trade here. Each bag has a pound of material in it, and they have proved to be very productive. I’ve found numerous ptychodus teeth, a (poorly preserved) lobster carapace, shark and fish vertebra, various bones, coprolites, and of course, lots of other shark teeth. So there’s lots of different things that can be found. I’ve got around 25-30 lbs I’d be willing to trade. I am primarily interested in vertebrate material, but I’ll also look at ammonites, and really anything else since I’ve finally gotten back into collecting again.

    Lobster bisque

    Hello all, I found the following (possible) Hoploparia sp. tail, abdomen section, and partial claw/arm on a recent trip in NJ. I haven't seen too many of these posted so I thought I would share. I also included a video to show how much is exposed on each side. Thanks for viewing. VID_178761207_233632_277.mp4

    A Crab

    I had already started working on this one before I left for Canada, so I decided to take it along and finish it up in my spare time. Now it's completed. A Coeloma sp. crab which I found 10 years ago in the Oligocene deposits at Mogenstrup beach on Limfjord, Denmark.
  16. Despite the heat I managed to get a solo trip down to the Ramanessin yesterday afternoon. I was hoping after the rains this past week things might be a little stirred up. On my last post I joked about the tiny super worn mosasaur tooth breaking the curse... and I am happy to report I was right. Little bit of everything this trip (small squares are 1/4 inch): Big mosasaur tooth, worn, but it made me very happy Pretty nice little lobster/shrimp Partial ratfish plate Coral/sponge? Crow shark tooth. My biggest of the day had a busted up tip, but this medium sized one was nice

    Lobster Prep Advice

    Hello All, I came across this fossil at a local rock and gem store and I'm having a go at preparing it. Apparently it is from Indonesia and I believe is a Thalassina, although with the spindle like legs I haven't seen anything that looks like an exact match. Here's my question; the fossil is covered with a sticky coarse sandstone, and I'm wondering how much of the matrix I should leave between joints in the tail and between the legs on the main body. I'm not sure if removing too much matrix will just cause the fossil to fall apart, but I suspect it might. Has anyone had experience with these fossils before and be able to lend a rookie some advice? Cheers, Ryan
  18. Found several years ago in Big Brook, NJ. Any help IDing would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Hope it isn't considered rude to call people into a post this way, but going to call on @Trevor for his opinion.

    Crustacean Possibly

    I don't think I posted Larry yet, but here he is! Meet Larry the Lobster! He didn't look much like a crab. He looked more like the Lobster from sponge bob. The lobster was buff and this one looks pretty buff to me!

    Crustacean Prep

    Hi Everyone, Found this at the NSR last weekend. I would really like to remove some of the grey matrix but that is beyond my skill set. Do not wan to ruin any of it. So, how would I go about stabilizing it? I use clear Elmers glue for the bones and some ammonites but not sure about soaking this in that mixture. Any help is appreciated.

    lobster?

    Hi Is this lobster piece ? Location : Southern Poland, Kraków Age: Touronian , Cretaceous
  22. Hello. Does anyone know about the authenticity of the fossil crabs and lobsters below? I've seen them pop up on a few different sites and I'm suspicious because they all look nearly identical. Unfortunately, I don't have any information about age, location, etc. Thanks for your help.
  23. Crustaceans are a large, diverse group of anthropods which includes the crabs, prawns, lobsters, barnacles and other shelled animals. Perhaps owing to their hard shells and marine lifestyles, crustaceans have a rich and extensive fossil record, extending up to the Cambrian, though they do not appear in abundance until the Carboniferous. They make for attractive and familiar fossils, and are one of my favorite groups to collect. Allow me to present my humble collection. Eryon cuvieri 155 million years old | late Jurassic Solnhofen Limestones; "Plattenkalk” Malm Zeta 2, Eichstatt, Germany Galene bispinosa 5 - 1 million years old | Pliocene to Pleistocene Sangiran, Central Java Carpopenaeus longistrosis 95.5 - 93 million years old | late Cretaceous Haquel, Lebanon Weichangiops rotundus (Triops) 145 - 125 million years old | early Cretaceous Dabeigou Fm; Hebei province, China
  24. Hey, I was wondering if these were real or fake, they look off to me but I’m not by any means an expert, so I’d love some help! TIA
