  7. Indy Environment: January opening announced for Southern Nevada’s Ice Age Fossils State Park The site of a massive paleontological dig in the 1960s, the park is opening nearly 70 years after the state acquired the land. By Amy Alonzo, The Nevada Independent, December 14, 2023 Yours, Paul H.
  8. This specimen is about 60 pounds and 19 x 17 x 6 inches. It has what look like tubular areas on one side, and is smooth on the other sides. Although at first glance it may look like a rock, please see other specimens from Nevada that look similar with white mineralization, etc. It is smooth on all sides except where broken. It flares up and down in opposite directions on each end. Possible Suspects: 7 Dinosaurs That Lived in Nevada (And Where to See Fossils Today) One opinion: Looks like a chunk of Morrison dinosaur pelvis..particularly ilium. The busy side is the inner surface where the sacrum fits on, big hole for femur head. Size-wise, Allosaurus, Stegosaurus" Wish the photos were in color, but one looks like the same dark stone with white mineral streaks: https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Right-lateral-view-of-pubic-foot-of-Allosaurus-AMNH-813-Ventral-view-of-pubic_fig1_268274412

  12. cameronsfossilcollection

    Olenellus gilberti negative

    From the album: Pioche Formation

    I split this beauty out last Spring, unfortunately the positive ended up crumbling away. The specimen is about an inch and a half long, a fully mature yet relatively puny example of this iconic species.

  14. Nautiloid

    Nice Nephrolenellus geniculatus

    From the album: Nautiloid’s Trilobite Collection

    This is a good sized example of this iconic Pioche Shale bug. It also sports a partial opistothorax, which is pretty sweet. Lower Cambrian Pioche Shale Nevada

  15. Nautiloid

    Ampyxoides? sp.

    From the album: Nautiloid’s Trilobite Collection

    This little bug is only about 0.8 cm wide, but has pretty decent preservation. The rest of the shell is in the negative, and hopefully the rostral process. Lower Ordovician Ninemile Formation Nye Co., NV

    Two uncommon bugs, if only it weren’t just the cranidium! The orytocephalites cranidium is truly miniscule, it's located towards the bottom of the screen in the center - underneath the larger ptychopariid molt piece.
  18. cameronsfossilcollection

    Ventral Nephrolenellus geniculatus

    Nice orange bug on the same plate as the chief + terminatus.
