  1. Hello to all. The Acastella trilobite from my own collection. Well preserved. I tried to get close-ups of the eyes and some small details. Place of discovery: outskirts of the city of Kamenets-Podolsky, Khmelnitsky region of Ukraine. It was not possible to determine the exact age (Silurian or Devonian). Have a nice day 1.mp4 3.mp4 4.mp4

  9. Hello to all. Photos from several trips of the past years. Probably, the age of these finds is the Kasimovian stage of the Carboniferous period (307 Ma). Despite the fact that many fragments of the crinoids lie on a large area, whole lilies were found only in a small "lens" about 7 * 7 meters in size. Finds from this lens are in the second part of the publication.
  10. Echinoid Express

    Ova sp.

    From the album: My Echinoid Collection

    Ova sp. Mykolaiv Sands, Fore-Carpathian Depression Middle Miocene (16-11 Ma) Gleboviti Locality, Roztocze Hills, Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast, Ukraine Acquired from online, August 2023 I had previously identified these as Schizaster sp., but I realized a short while later that the larger specimen only has two large gonopores, and while the one in matrix has an incomplete apical disc, it looks as if it may have those same two large gonopores. Therefore I'll consider them Ova sp. for now, the larger one seems to have the complete lateroanal fasciole from what little I can see. These come from the same beds that have plentiful spine-coated Echinocardium leopolitanum. One specimen has some spine preservation on the oral surface, while the other one in matrix has some spines along the anterior edge, as well as seemingly on much of the oral surface as well, based on a small crevice located in the sandstone that exposes some of them.

    Ammonite from Ukraine

    Hi guys, i've receiced those ammonites from @Svetlana, they are sinemurian. I tried.to figure out what species they are. Note that the carena is well marked for all of them and they all show costulations. For that first one i found nothing but Oxynoticeras or Asteroceras, i'm absolutely not satisfied about that. For the second one i've found Echioceras rhodanicum And for the third one Orthechioceras maybe cf. viticola

    Echinolampas sp.

    From the album: My Echinoid Collection

    Echinolampas sp. Ternopil Beds, East European Platform(?) Middle Miocene (16-11 Ma) Unknown Oblast, Ukraine Acquired from online, August 23 My source on Ukrainian echinoids had no info on this specimen other than it seemingly came from the Ternopil Beds, and I have not found any reliable source of information online as to what species this could be. The only thing I could find was a mention of a different undescribed specimen of Echinolampas; however, it was very rounded (not unlike the Oligocene Echinolampas aldrichi from North Carolina), and not laterally compressed and elongated like this one. I wonder if this is a different undescribed species from that one. It measures around 6.6 cm (2.6 inches) long, and around 4.4 cm (1.725 inches) wide. The oral surface is depressed slightly inwards towards the peristome. It seems that the oral surface was prepared with vinegar due to a faint smell, although fortunately it doesn't seem to have suffered much acidic damage.

    Branch (vine) ID

    Hello to all. Please help me identify this branch. It was found on the banks of the Kremenchug reservoir in Ukraine. This is a large reservoir, which is adjacent to three regions. It is difficult to determine the age - water erodes the layers from the Neogene period to the Jurassic. Thank you!
  16. Please tell me if this broken tooth belongs to a hyena and which one? I've heard speculation that it's Adcrocuta sp., maybe A.eximia. It comes from Ukraine, Zaporizhzhia region, Neogene sediments. Thank you!

    From the album: My Echinoid Collection

    Parascutella gibbercula Ternopil Beds, East European Platform Middle Miocene (16-11 Ma) Stare Porichchya, Kolomyia Raion, Khmelnytskyi Oblast, Ukraine Acquired from online, July 2023 While most of the Parascutella gibbercula I've received come from the Ternopil Oblast, according to my source of them these detailed, "textured" specimens come from the Khmelnytskyi Oblast instead. This is probably my most detailed one I've acquired to date.

    Larnovaspis major ZYCH, 1927

    References: Voichyshyn V.K. (2011): THE EARLY DEVONIAN ARMOURED AGNATHANS OF PODOLIA, UKRAINE. PALAEONTOLOGIA POLONICA, No. 66, 2011, pp 1-211. Voichyshyn V.K. (2015): Devonian Fish Fauna. – Lviv, 2015. – 310 p. (Scientific collections of the State Natural History Museum; Issue 5).
  20. I thought I would share this recent fossil purchase. I was fortunate to obtain this fossil from the lower Devonian in the southwestern region (Podolia) of Ukraine. Two ventral snout regions of type of heterostracan (jawless) fish called rhinopteraspid are exposed. The bone detail is simply remarkable. There is “tiling” of the underside of the long (rhino) snouts with dentine and/or aspidine (acellular enamel-like substance) in parallel lines arrays with a more uniform bone matrix underneath. The pre-oral-plate is angled in toward the mouth and displays many external textures of bone that presumably aided the fish’s feeding. I didn't expect to see this level of detail.
  21. In connection to a school project, I asked my dad if he could buy me this representative trilobite of Ukraine, as I wrote a little bit on the trilobites of the Silurian-Devonian boundary there. The problem is that the label is probably wrong as Acastella is not found in the Lower Silurian, and searches of the locality in which the trilobite was supposedly found had no results. I think it is much more likely that the trilobite was found in the Borschiv Horizon, around Podolia, as the shell preservation and trilobite looks similar. The question I have though, is: does Acastella tiro have denticulations on its pygidium, or is that A. heberti? A paper on the trilobites of the Iberian Chains says that A. tiro has denticulations on its pygidium, yet a paper on the trilobites of Arctic North America says that is distinct to A. heberti. I would greatly appreciate any information. 1. Acastella tiro and A. heberti form the Iberian Chain 2. From North America 3. My own little specimen, which I am unsure of what species it is.
  22. Please tell me what brachiopods are on this sample from Chortkiv district, Ternopil region of Ukraine? Devonian age. Large ones look like a spiriferid. Scale - 11 cm along the long dimension. Thank you!

  24. Few years ago I found this nice small 1" goblin shark tooth fossil (Scapanorhynchus texanus) in the sand, and it had a very little second outgrowth tooth, like on the second picture. But this little tooth had broke off and lost (look on the first picture). So, is it a problem and will it affect on this fossil's value, or is it OK?
