    Trilobite ID please?

    I recently rescued several trilobites from a dusty cardboard box at an estate sale. The orange trilobite was unlabeled and a little over 3.5 inches long. The tan colored trilobite is 1.25 inches long and was labeled as “Canada Trilobite”. I realize it isn’t much to go on, but was hoping someone could provide a little more information if at all possible.
  2. Hi all, I've been offered these two teeth that I've been told are pliosaur teeth. They're from Morocco. They must have a fair amount of repairs due to the glued matrix and cracks etc, but do they look legitimate? The shape looks like pliosaur to me
  3. I have been reading up on Moroccan mosasaurs and one point of confusion that I have run into is differentiating teeth from Prognathodon anceps and Prognathodon giganteus. There seems to be a great deal of overlap in their descriptions and occasional contradictions in the scientific literature. The first issue I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a great deal of confusion over what to even call the two species. Leiodon anceps (Owen, 1841-1845) was based on two tooth fragments and a section of jawbone. The genus was renamed Liodon by Agassiz (1846) because the
  4. Something caught my eye at the cheap table of trilobites at a Moroccan vender at a past fossil show. There were several Scabriscutellum of mediocre quality but I bought two. You can see them here. I am pretty certain these fossils are legit. One seems to have to have a clear cleft in the pygidium. There is even a small overlap of one pygidial "lobe" over the other. This is the first time I have seen such a "dramatic" mutation. I would guess that it is far more likely to be a developmental issue rather then a genetic mutation. The cleft trilobite obviously survived to its current size just fine

    Shark teeth ID

    Hello, I found these in a bowl of Otodus obliquus teeth in a jersey shore gift shop. I’m assuming they’re from Morocco. The serrations tell me they’re something different but I don’t know what. Any ideas?

    Atlas Mountains theropod tooth

    Hello, thoughts on this? It is described as theropod. From the El Mers Group. Boulmane Province Jurassic. 1.25 inches. Seller says the tip might be repaired. Now, is it as described--location wise? Apparently there is a Kem-Kem related Cretaceous deposit also in the Atlas Mountains, so some teeth described as Jurassic actually aren't? So, is this a Jurassic one, and can anyone possibly narrow it down to a more specific species? Also, any signs of fakeness or restoration? there is a fair bit of matrix on, which I know is a red flag with Kem Kem fossils. But i

    Jurassic crocodile from Morocco?

    I see some good teeth with ID "Jurassic crocodile" from Boulmane, Morocco (El Mers Group) - Atlas Mountain and age 170 million years. I can't find any article about jurassic crocodiles from this location. Is the ID real or these teeth are just Goniopholis from Morrison or other common croc?

    Moroccan Abelisaurid tooth?

    Hi! I've been eyeing these supposed Abelisaurid teeth from Morocco (Kem Kem beds?), but I'm unsure if they are what they're labelled as. Are these two Abelisaur teeth? Or are do they belong to another theropod in the formation? (Mostly being confused with how one differentiates KK "raptor" teeth from true abelisaur teeth) Tooth A: Images 1 to 4 Tooth B: Images 5 to 8 I've read @Troodon's fantastic guide to Kem Kem teeth. However, as a very amateur fossil collector, I'm only able to identify but the only feature I am able to identify as abelisaurid is the mesial side being curv

    A Crinoid

    This time I've attempted a portion of a Scyphocrinites elegans crinoid plate which is a well-known and frequently available species from Morocco. I picked this one up for a song a couple of years ago. This took quite a while to complete.

    Adam's Cambrian

    A rangeomorph holdfast trace fossil from the Ediacara formation, Rawnsley quartzite of the Flinders Range, South Australia. This specimen is Medusina mawsoni, so called because it was until recently thought to be a jellyfish, but is now believed to be the attachment point of a fractal rangeomorph as Charniodiscus is the point of anchorage for Charnia sp. This one may have been the holdfast point for some species of Rangea. The diameter of the outer circle is 1.5 cm and the fossil is estimated to be 555 million years old.

    Elasmosaurus vertebrae?

    Was purchased as an Elasmosaurus vertabrae from Morocco 5.91" x 6.19" I found one similar online but the one I acquired seems to be a little more on the flat side. One of the processes has been repaired and seems to be stabilized. If it is indeed from an Elasmosaur, could it just be from a different section of the spine and is why it has a flatter profile? If so, what section could it be from? I'm just trying to get all the information on it that I can. The last three pics will be of the one I found online. Thank you in advance!
  19. Hi, These crinoids from Morocco look very nice with the good contrast of the red matrix. My question is if the seller has enhanced the red colour of the red matrix with paint or is his red colour the real and natural colour? I hope that anyone with experience can advice me in this. Thank you.

    Cretalamna appendiculata? Morocco

    I got these 2 shark teeth a few years ago. They are from Khouribga, Morocco I labeled them as Cretalamna appendiculata and Cretaceous-Eocene as I saw several Cretalamna appendiculata labeled sometimes as Eocene and sometimes Cretaceous. Does anyone know if its the correct species or how to identify shark teeth from Khouribga?
  21. Hello everyone,I've decided to open a chain of comments focusing on a popular theme: Moroccan spinosaurids. This is the first comment of a small series dedicated to analyse and document the diverse morphology of spinosaurids in the Kem Kem group. As an introduction,I'll be specifying how it will work,the rules and some guidance for those interested. First and foremost,the rules: 1)For correct identifications,I require images in various view(ventral and lateral at least) and with the highest quality possible. 2)Each comment will focuse on a specific morphotype,as

    Moroccan Fossil ID - Vert

    Here’s another one I’m not sure about. I know we are still learning about the Kem Kem Beds daily, but I wanted to give this one a shot to see if any of the community had any input. I know you all know much more than I do. It was sold as Dino/Crocodyliform, so not much to go off of besides it was in the Cretaceous Kem Kem beds.
