  1. Hello! This is something really stange I found a few time ago which had a really strange structure which I couldn't explain as a sedimentary one. I've always had it as a simple pseudofossil, but a few days ago I found another exact structure, although a little bit more fragmentary. They are quite unusual, al least for me. What is clear to me is that in case they are fossils, they are fragments of bone. On one side they show a lineal pattern of holes, not really deep, where I think teeth were placed. One the other side they show a really characteristic pattern of triangle like

    Mysterious molar

    Hello, I'm new in this forum I'd like to start up with a question about a molar teeth I hope some of you could answer I found this tooth in middle Miocene strata, and I don't know what it is. The first thing I thought was that it was just a simple tooth from a present animal, but I can't math my tooth with wolfs, foxes nor dogs. I thought then about it being Miocene old and I wonder if it could be Amphicyon or Hemicyon, which I know that have been found in a nearby locality. I can't found enogh material on the internet to clarify this, so a little help would be awesome.

    Worn echinoid from Spain?

    Hi all, Some time ago I made a post asking about what the fossil my friend had found was. Now he gave it to me (because he doesn't have a passion for it), which of course I was really glad with. Anyways, by surprise he gave me a second one too. It's also from a beach near Sevilla (Spain); I'm thinking that it's another worn echinoid. Am I right? Best regards, Max

    ID needed: Rock found near Sevilla

    Hi everyone, A friend of mine found this on a beach near Sevilla, Spain. It does seem like there is something... Anyone have a clue what it could be? Thanks! Max
  5. Greetings. I am a newbie inside the world of fossil hunting and I would be very happy if someone could help me to identify this broken fossil I found at a quarry. I am actually living in the Balearic Islands were is possible to find fossils from the devonian to the miocene and the one I found is lying at the lower level of a coast quarry in the island of Menorca. This area of the island was formed during the miocene and is full of bivalve fossils like pleistocene Pecten. The fossil I have found looks like a robuste bone which is about 16 cm (6,3 inch) long and which you can see at the picture

  13. Hello! I'm new to the forum and fossil hunting. I've actually come to it by way of hiking. I've been hiking for years and grown curious about my finds. Most I've come across are easily identifiable, but these two have proven more challenging. A geologist friend suggested that they are a type of echinodermata. But since the first has six rays I thought it might possibly be evactinopora radiata. However, the examples of evactinopora radiata I have seen online are significantly smaller than this example. I know I should have photographed a coin or something next to them to

  19. Scientists have just reported a new genus and species of sail-backed iguanodont from the Early Cretaceous of Spain: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-science-dinosaur-idUSKBN0TZ2UP20151216 The discovery of Morelladon isn't the first time a sail-backed iguanodont has been reported from Spain. A slightly older iguanodont from Spain had been reported in the 1990s, but it wasn't until 2011 that it was fully described in detail. Due to the discovery of Delapparentia (which is distinct from Iguanodon and Mantellisaurus specimens from Spain), it's now clear that more than two iguanodont species liv

  21. [uPDATE 05 Okt. 2013 ] Update #1 : Click here to go to the new images posting Update #2 : Click here to go to the new images posting Hi! So. This is my second post, and I hope I read up well enough in the regulations & suggestions section to make it a good one. The title is a bit of a gig - although I've been steadily collecting fossils around here (Bierzo, Leon, Spain), it's nothing much spectacular probably. Besides that I'm the biggest possible amateur you can imagine I'm also extremely picky (tip missing - ditch it!. Cracked? Ditch it! Boring color? Ditch it! Low contrast? Ditch it
  22. It's been a fine few days for trace fossil enthusiasts! Here is a new open access article reviewing dinosaur trace fossils from southwestern Europe. Vila, B., Oms, O., Fondevilla, V., Gaete, R., Galobart, À., Riera, V., Canudo, J. 2013. The latest succession of dinosaur tracksites in Europe: Hadrosaur ichnology, track production and palaeoenvironments. PLoS ONE 8,9: e72579. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0072579 Brian Switek picked up on this one too and has another nice write up about it here. The art associated with his blog post is especially nice as well. Enjoy!
  23. Hi to everybody, I've been struggling a lot of time in ID these little bones. I think they are some otoliths, but I can't identify them using internet images or articles. They are Pliocene in age (from Spain). Every line from the scale is 1 mm. Thanks in advance!
