  1. Hey ya'll Some finds from a last Sunday. The tooth was found buried in gravel, and was the one result from 2 hours combing a single gravel bar. The day before, that same spot, was extremely productive, funnily enough. That's just how it goes The mammal tooth is small, and may very well be modern, but teeth from various Pleistocene fauna have been found around here that were still white. Just thought it was worth checking. Also, the I'm thinking the rudist piece might be Durania austinensis, based on an ID I got on a similar, larger rudist piece before. Tho
  2. Hello, I would like to ask if someone is able and would like to look up the derivation/meaning of the name of the rudist genus "Vaccinites". It was introduced by Fischer (1887) in this work: It could mean something like "cow horn" (Vacca = cow). But I am not sure and can not find something really definitive with google. Thank you very much for your help! Franz Bernhard
  3. Hello, several weeks ago, I presented a rudist recovery "operation" from the Afling-formation of the Gosau-group of Kainach (Upper Cretaceous): Well, the same day I have discovered the rudist zone featured above, I have also discovered a rudist zone about 100-200 m stratigraphically deeper. It is confined to an about 1 m thick, very dark limestone bed rich in various rudist and echinoid remains. The limestone belongs to the Geistthal-formation, considering the limestone is still located within the sequence with some red clastic rocks, suggesting strong terrestrial influence i
  4. Hello! Having discovered some new rudist occurrences in the lower part of the upper Santonian - lower Campanian clastic-marine Afling-formation at Römaskogel hill near Kainach, western Styria, Austria, about 6 weeks ago. Here I would like to present a very specific visit to one of these sites at 05/15/2021. It was aimed to recover some more parts of already known rudists from the outcrop at site #30. Here we go! Approaching Römaskogel, the hill in the middle. Its 1006 m high, the snowy mountain in the background is the Gleinalpe mountain, nearly 2000 m high:

    Fossil?

    Hello! Found yesterday, although I'm not even sure what it is. I put rudists in the tag section since someone told me if you don't know what it is, then it's probably a rudist (especially in Lebanon). I would also like to mention that those patterns are not only on one side, rather they're everywhere even on the small pieces that fell off while i separated it from a bigger rock.
  7. This website looks too professional for me. I single handedly picked up nice specimens back in 2004-2007. I would like to post pics but since I am new to forum , I can not. Do you not realize some of the best fossils are picked up by layman ? At any rate my specimens have been hidden away for the last 10 years. Now the public will be able to view them. I have a vacant corner lot in downtown Bertram , TX where they are being placed around 2 large oak trees. I guess I just wanted to share info so that one day I might be able to post pics. Thank you for your time and hope to participate in the
  8. having been unable to go out a full day to search for fossils for several months due to health problems, thanks to a recent improvement I went yesterday about 100 km from my home to see a site where rudists were found. The first fossil encountered was a huge colony of cone-shaped bryozoans which had fallen and overturned in a depression. (can be 150kg?). I forgot to take my centimeter scale, so in the photos there is my foot, my hand or my fingers .... Then, I found a rock rich in small Exogyra and rare Rhynchonella. Finally, the rudists were there, in a wall (only for the

    Two Urban Fossils

    Hi!! Two mystery fossils on a wall in San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain). Other fossils in the same rock are Neridea. In the first photo, I wonder about the little "cells" that can be seen. Is this coral or something?? Looks different from other corals I've seen, and the shape is so strange! The second photo is a large shell? A rudist? A gastropod? Thanks for your help!!! :-) Elizabeth

    What is This ?

    I found this steinkern in the Maastrichtian, Peedee Form. of SE North Carolina. It is 5 inches long, 2 1/2 inches wide. Any ideas ? Thanks

    The Rudist Rock of Texas

    Couldn't resist the pun..sorry y'all!! So went out to a friends ranch to do some fossil hunting. Wasn't expecting much because it said the area was Segovia and Edwards Limestone, which is not very fossilierous. You will find the occasional thing, but not very often. My friend showed me a few things she found and I was ASTOUNDED. A GORGEOUS Neithia bivalve completely encrusted in crystals in a chert/flint matrix. Very unusual. So that got me to really hunting. I never found a nice shell like hers but I did stumble upon a Rudist Reef! Also covered in crystals! All I had to do was look for the sp

  13. Found this in Comanche Peak limestone formation in Central Texas. I'm thinking Eoradiolites quadratus but not sure if there's enough info to nail down species. Apex to apex measures approximately 1.5 cm for three different samples. I will slowly post more pics of the other specimens, as I reduce photo sizes without losing quality. Thanks for your help.
  14. A few weeks after my mother found her most recent cidarid in an Edwards formation check dam, I took a few minutes to swing by the same dam to see for myself what else could be found. Within minutes I dug up a cylindrical fossil that for a few weeks puzzled me due to its resemblance to a belemnite phragmocone. Then on Wednesday night I went to the DPS meeting and afterwards met briefly with Professor Andy Gale and showed him this specimen. He identified it as a rudist and immediately corroborated that with another DPS member familiar with rudists. What confused me is that it doesn't look like a

    Rudist ?

    Hi, a friend of mine told me he found some Placentyceras in a place where the geologic ages go from the Albian to the Turonian-Santonian, but most of the stratas of that place are Cenomanian. I believe this fossil is not an ammonite, but rather an Oyster or a rudist. I mostly think about Requienia or Toucasia. The geologic file mention the name of Toncasia bayleia. Do you know if Toncasia is a synonym of Toucasia and do you think i'm right thinking this is a rudist ? Lenght : 7 centimeters.

  17. Hello! Found a few things I cannot identify and would appreciate some help! I have done as extensive a search as I can and I am pretty sure the first specimen is a rudist. I think! Anyone care to confirm? The striations on the bottom "curve" intrigue me. The second piece is....I don't know what. Rudist again? The next piece might be an oyster? All were found in Hays County TX- Cretaceous, not sure of Formation. Thank you for your help! Also including in the next post my fabulous find of a tiny hippo head. Pretty sure it is an amazingly preserved head of a tiny hippo. HAAHHAH!!! Actually, and
