    Pliosaurs In Russia?

    Does anyone know about the occurrence of Pliosaurs in Russia? I recently acquired a lovely pliosaur tooth from Calvin from this forum, and the information given was: Polyptychodon interruptus Stary Oskol, Russia Upper Cretaceous I am curious because firstly, every single of this type of tooth are said to have came from Stary Oskol of Russia, and secondly they are all consistently listed as species Polyptychodon interruptus. However, I am not aware of any scientific papers or paleontology database listing Polyptychodon as a pliosaur from Russia. Polyptychodon is instead found in England an
  2. Hi everyone, I recently bought this tooth on a whim. It was described as Diplocynodon sp. from the Kimmeridge Clay and reworked into the Albian-age Faringdon Sponge Gravels at the Wicklesham Pit. However, this description is obviously wrong in either species attribution or locality, since Diplocynodon is an alligatoroid genus dating to the Paleocene to middle Miocene, and could therefore not possibly have been found in the Sponge Gravels as Wicklesham Pit. Going by the label that came with the tooth, however, the seller whom I bought the

    Pliosaur tooth?

    Hello, I saw this for sale, wondering people's thoughts. It is from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco--seller has it listed as Jurassic. The striated side makes me hopeful this is a Pliosaur tooth rather than Plesiosaur, which all seem to be smoothe from Morocco. Atlas Mountains formation overlaps with Kem Kem I think, so could it be cretaceous as opposed to Jurassic? Thanks for the help

    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
  5. Hi, I always struggle to tell the difference between a Plesiosaur tooth and an Ichthyosaur tooth. This tooth comes from Goulmima in Morocco (lower Turonian) so I believe it is a Plesiosaur tooth (possibly a Pliosaur tooth), but wanted to confirm it here. The tooth is 4.2cm in length and retains the ridges on the tooth which I think is how you might tell the difference between Plesiosaur and Ichthyosaur. Thank you!

    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
  7. I propose to buy this specimen if it is real. The seller told me that this specimen should belong to the pliosaur based on his experience, but I had a hard time to identify whether it is an ichthyosaur tooth or a pliosaur tooth. Is it an ichthyosaur tooth or a pliosaur tooth?
  8. After a few conversations with forum members I thought it would be useful to share some Russian papers which have probably never been translated into English, thus are not known (at least in detail) internationally. I picked 5 of the best Russian-only articles I had found which are NOT limited to local aspects and descriptions (there are quite of few of this kind) but suit any person interested in marine reptiles and give some general knowledge on the subject. The authors are our most prominent specialists. Translation into English or any other language can be made with https://translate.googl

    Oxford Clay Plesiosaur Tooth

    Hey everyone! I recently got a few marine reptile teeth from various formations in the UK, including this partial plesiosaur tooth from the Oxford Clay. The enamel is only partially preserved, but appears unworn and allows for a good look at the enamel ridges of this section. The curved, rather robust shape of the tooth and the irregular distribution of the pretty prominent enamel ridges made me move away from ichthyosaur or machimosaurid as an ID, and seemed more in line with the many plesiosaurs from this formation. But that's where it got more tricky.

    Ichthyosaur or pliosaur tooth?

    Hello all I acquired this tooth recently. It's those famous russian deposits that produce ichthyosaur and pliosaur remains. I bought it as an ichthyosaur tooth, but could it be it's pliosaur? I've noticed rootef ichthyosaur teeth have a bit different root, like a pronged root. But I'm hardly an expert so I'd greatly appreciate feedback from others

    Pliosaur tooth

    Thoughts on this, please? It's sold as Pliosaur tooth from Faringdon, Oxfordshire--Kimmeridge Clay. 13mm long. I have my doubts because most Pliosaur teeth that I see for sale have quite thick, distinct striations that this lacks. But of course, it could be a different type of pliosaur. Or I could be entirely wrong that they usually have thick striations.. Anyway, any thoughts would be most welcome.

    UK Marine Reptile Teeth

    Hello all, I've had two teeth in my collection for many years now. I've recently moved and lost the supplied ID labels that came with them. I've taken this as a nice opportunity to see what others may think they are. I believe if memory serves me right the large tooth (Tooth A in photos) was labeled as a Simolestes. Then the smaller tooth tip (Tooth B in photos) labeled as Liopleurodon. I know both were found in the Wicklesham pit in Faringdon, Oxfordshire, UK. Upon some research, I found an article from 2014 with a Dakosaurus tooth discovered to be the largest in the UK at the ti

    Pliosaur vert?

    I'm interested in a pliosaur vert. This one is slightly distorted due to crushing. From Kimmeridge Clay. 9cm x 6cm x2.5 Is Pliosaur accurate, or is it plesiosaur,.or something else? Thanks.

    Legendary Week

    Two hunts, two creeks, two legendary finds in one week. I don’t know what you know about Texas weather, but in July it’s hot. Downright miserable, unsafe heat at times. Just a week and a half ago we hit a heat index of 111 degrees. So when you have a day that tops out in the mid 90s for a high, you take advantage of that cool front. I checked the weather and saw that Tuesday had a high of only 94. I messaged my buddy @sharko69 and said, “Hey, its gonna be a nice day. Let’s do some hunting this afternoon after work.” So we meet up at our usual hunting spot and he
  15. It was initially being sold as plesiosaur when I inquired about it, but seller says it was mislabelled and is pliosaur--which, if accurate, even better! But I am dubious over Pliosaur ID because I don't think I've ever seen any Morocco pliosaur fossils up for sale. But, if anyone can take a look and let me if A) It looks legit and B ) Whether you think Pliosaur or plesiosaur is accurate, that would be great. 80 million years old, from Morocco. 17 inches along the straight edge and 10 inches along the bottom. Thanks for any help!

    Texas Pliosaur

    Went out for a hunt with friends today on a local creek in Denton County, Texas and came across this great tooth. Better beat up that not to find at all. Was totally stoked when I saw the tip and thought I had found a large mosy in this creek. Was even more excited when I made out what I had really found.

    Plesiosaur tooth/teeth?

    This kind of tooth surface, with the ridges, isn’t that for the most part, not a common plesiosaur feature? This is from Lyme Regis....what would you all think?
  18. Hi all, this is not actual news as it happened in 2002, but the footage of excavation process and participants' memories became available only recently. I hope it will be interesting for everybody who is into marine Mezozoic and field paleontology in general. The species: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luskhan Excavation video: Participants' memories: Set subtitles to automatic translation, its 70% correct:) There are some weirdo mistakes, but overall comprehensible Assembled skeleton on display: I descr
  19. I've always been fascinated by the Cretaceous sea and its myriad of terrifying carnivores, many that would've made Jaws look meek. After watching BBC's Sea Monsters, I made it my goal to compile a box of sea monster fossils. I started this journey 10 years ago, and finally completed the box recently. Allow me to present my Predators of the Cretaceous Sea collection, and take you on a journey to the most dangerous sea of all times. The box measures 20.25 inches long. Inside are 24 unique predator fossils. I will introduce them from left to right, top to bott

    UK Ichthyosaur or Pliosaur Tooth

    Hello, I recently got a hold of this tooth from an old collection in the UK. I am unsure if this tooth wouldve come from a ichthyosaur or a pliosaur since the root is absent and I'm not expert in this material, so any feedback that help figure this tooth out is appreciated.

    Pliosaur tooth?

    I just saw this could it be a pliosaur tooth, measures 3cm long and found in Russia?
  23. Do these two fragmented teeth look like they could be from a Pliosaur? one is 3.7cm and the other is 2.8cm. Both come from the Goulmima region in Morocco. Thanks.
