  1. Dennis fossil

    Please help me identify this fish

    This fish is from Luoping, Yunnan, China. It is about 28 cm long during the Triassic period. Please help me identify which family and genus it belongs to. 1627652635291
  2. Here is a picture of a Bivalve imprint I found whilst in a Creek in Western Wake County. I was in the Triassic Basin and they have fossils dating back around 230 Ma ± 2 ma. It was part of the Carnian Stage of the Triassic part of the bigger Newark Supergroup. I presume it is a freshwater genus but I don't hear much about freshwater Bivalves when it comes to Triassic fossils.

    Middle Triassic ichthyosaur vertebra

    Early June, two years ago, I found this ichthyopterygian vertebra in a small nodule out of the northern French Middle Triassic, from the Upper Muschelkalk. Almost two years to the day later a friend of mine helped me complete its preparation this month. When done, one of the first things that struck me were the elongate, and slightly tilted rib attachment sites. As far as I know, such rib attachment sites do not occur in any parvipelvian ichthyosaur species, which, instead, have round, button-like, attachment sites, especially on dorsal vertebrae as my find is. Now I realise that i

    Keichousaurus

    From the album: My other Fossils

    Keichousaurus with a quartz line that runs through the piece. Keichousaurus is a genus of marine reptile in the pachypleurosaur family which went extinct at the close of the Triassic in the Triassic-Jurassic extinction event.
  5. Hi all, I am trying to identify this fossil from a photo taken at Blue Anchor, Somerset. It shod be Triassic or Jurassic. At first I thought it might be a marine creature but it, doesn't look like a skeleton, so I thought possibly a large plant? It is perhaps 0.5 to 0.75 metres across. Many thanks.

    Triassic bull canyon oddity

    From Westbury-on-Severn with pyrite

    Hi all, I recently acquired the below fossil, a pair of articulated jaws, purportedly from Pachystropheus rhaeticus, still with teeth, found at Garden Cliff/Westbury-on-Severn. Whether I wasn't paying proper attention when I bought it or just hoping there wouldn't be any pyrite on the piece, when I received the specimen it turned out that there are quite numerous pyrite-crystals growing to the side of the fossil. As it's quite an unusual piece that I'd rather like to keep, I'm now looking for people with experience with pyrite from the Garden Cliff location. In essence, I'd like to

    Pachystropheus rhaeticus?

    I tried posting something up a few days back but got no reply - I think maybe i made the mistake of posting too much up at once. Well I have now done some minor prep on this chunk of Rhaetic bone bed from Aust Cliff, anyway, and on revealing more of the bone and consulting my new purchase of 'Fossils of the Rhaetian Penarth Group', my confidence in my original conclusion has increased - that this most prominent bone fragment is the end of a Pachystropheus rhaeticus femur or tibia. I guess I was hoping that someone here with a lot more knowledge of these rocks would be able to confim my hunch s

    Preservation of colour in fossil shells

    Hi all, Some time ago I found this shell in (what I believe to be) the French Upper Muschelkalk (Triassic). Now I'm not into shells myself, but to judge from the remains of operculum on the underside of it, the specimen concerns an oyster. Most strikingly, however, the shell has a pattern of darker-coloured lines that do not correspond to any three-dimensional/elevational differences on the shell surface - which is, in fact, entirely flat. I haven't seen this on a fossil shell before. Now when doing a Google search for my response on whether it would be possible for cru
  10. I wanted to very briefly share something really pretty awesome. Some folks here know that in addition to Fossils on Wheels, I also work for the Gateway Science Museum. It’s a small children’s science museum and our fall exhibit is going to be about fossils. We are part of CSU Chico and the Geology Department is using our facilities to do some preparation work on a few fossils for the exhibit. I took some pictures of one awesome specimen. The table in the center of the frame contains multiple pieces of a Shastasaurus. It is a remarkable and scientifically important specimen. It w
  11. Hi all, I visited Aust Cliff in South Gloucestershire, UK for a couple of hours last week. I wasn't expecting much as I know how heavily collected it is, but got a few bits of interest which I was happy with under the circumstances. I'd be interested in educated takes on a couple of bits of bone bed I found there at least, especially this first piece that contains what I believe to be multiple bone fragments as well as coprolite pieces and lots of small black fragments - not sure if scales, teeth or what. Here's a view showing what I imagine is one end of a reptile limb bone - coul
  12. I will trade these fossils for one well preserved European goniatite or European triassic ammonite (specimen with 5 to 8 cm preferentially) because that kind of specimen is lack in my teaching collection. Note the Anorthopygus orbicularis is not a common species and, apart the incomplete test, has an exceptional detailed preservation, rarely seen. Best regards, Ricardo Traded

    My Nothosaurus tooth

    This is a 2 cm/0.8 inch Nothosaurus tooth, from Triassic Germany. A nice tooth with good size for the genus. This is my first fossil from this family and my second fossil from the Triassic period.

    Marine reptiles of Madagascar

    Hi all, I recently became aware that Madagascar appears to have a fully developed and interesting Mesozoic marine reptile record, yet am not particularly able to find any information on them. The only article I have come across is Bardet and Termier, 1990, "Première description de restes de Plésiosaure provenant de Madagascar (gisement de Berere, Campanien)". However, I've been unable to track this article down. As such, I was wondering whether anybody on TFF might have any information on them. Basically, I'm starting from scratch, so would be very interested in the clades of

    Lavernock bone bed

    This is being sold as a bone bed from Lavernock, Wales. It is labelled as possibly dinosaur. It is rhaetic triassic. Could it be dinosaur?

    Bull Canyon Microfossils

    I got many bags of micromatrix to sift through over the Summer, one of them being from the Bull Canyon Formation, which is Late Triassic in age (~227-208.5 Ma). As has been said many times before, not much is known about the teeth that can be found here, unfortunately. The vast majority of fossils that I've found so far are fish scales, lots of fish scales. I've found a few teeth, serrated and non-serrated (mostly partial), a couple of tooth plates/jaw fragments, and random chunks of bone. The matrix is about medium grain size. For scale, the sorting dish I'm using ha

    Large bone from Aust cliff

    Hi, I found this bone at Aust cliff (late Triassic), I know that most bones from Aust are likely Plesiosaur or Ichthyosaur, but are often unidentifiable. Is it possible to identify this bone? It seems to have split around the back, so could probably be only half of the bone, and it looks to be the end of a bone. I've ordered a book on Rhaetian fossils, so hopefully that will make things easier. It measures about 8 cm across. Unfortunately I do not have anything with me to prepare it. Many thanks.

    More tridactyl type tracks

    Been finding a few of these types of tracks recently. Will be curious to see if they actually are tridactyl dinosaurs.
  19. Hello everyone! I was out at one of my Triassic track areas in New Jersey and came up with something non track-related I found interesting. We have all kinds of ripple marks, plants, etc. so I'm really not sure what this is.. can anyone help? Thanks!

    Collection

    Hi all, after seeing all these nice collections from other members I also want to share the collection of my father and I with you. The collections is of various time periods and sites. We started collecting in 2009 close to home in a quarry nearby Maastricht called 't Rooth (sadly this quarry is close for visitors since 2016). From there on we started visiting other quarries and the collection started too grew massively. We frequently visited the ENCI, Winterswijk and Solnhofen. I will start off with some of the display cabinets

    Triassic rib?

    Hi, i went on a trip to my new triassic spot and found something which reminds some sort of a rib trace on a marine bed. Look at the bottom of a rock Found near Chorzów, lesser Poland. Can you tell me what's that?

    Interesting new track

    Second picture is what appears to be a tridactyl track. First picture might be also. According to the paleontologist there is discussion of the possibility of dinosaurs being around in this time period.
