  1. I decided to try my luck again at one of my old Aalenian spots in the Wutach valley last week and it panned out this time. I'd been there a couple of weeks ago without much success, so I decided to try to follow the horizon this time in the hopes of finding a pristine exposure. This necessitated a lot of digging and delving, and was a bit of a challenge for my sense of orientation, but I finally was able to localize two exposures which look like they could be producing some interesting finds for some time to come. I've been busy the last few days doing some commission work, but I finished
  2. Ludwigia

    Myophorella cf. formosa (Lycett 1872)

    From the album: German Gastropods and Bivalves

    3.5cm. long. From the sinon bank in the middle Jurassic Aalenian murchisonae zone in the Wutach Valley.
  3. Ludwigia

    Leptomaria amyntas (D'Orbigny 1850)

    From the album: German Gastropods and Bivalves

    3x2.5cm. From the middle Jurassic Aalenian murchisonae zone in the Wutach Valley.
  4. Ludwigia


    I was back in the Wutach on Friday and visited a spot in the Callovian. Found a few pieces worth keeping and this is the first one which I just finished prepping. One of the more rare ammonites. A Bullatimorphites bullatus. More to follow once I'm done with the prep.
  5. Ludwigia

    Stephanoceras sp. (Sowerby 1869)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    6cm. From the herveyi zone, early Callovian from the Wutach valley. Shell preservation. Not part of my collection, but prepared for a colleague.

    Another dig

    I was hoping today to continue on with my foraging expedition from last week, but when I got to my little mountain in the Wutach, there was still too much snow lying on the slopes to guarantee me not slipping and sliding over precipices, so I decided to just go to my exposure and do a bit more digging. This time I remembered to take along the camera, so I can show you a bit of the landscape and give you an impression of the digging activity. The first three pics are on the approach to the exposure. Can you guess where it is? A little hilly, eh?

    Foraging expedition 1

    I had the whole day available for a prolonged tour on Saturday, so I decided to spend it exploring the sides of the small mountain in the Wutach valley where I've been making some good finds in the Callovian for the last year or so. Since my usual dig is getting tougher to work, particularly since I'm spending more time removing overburden than I am digging fossils, I figured I'd foray on into the unknown in search of new exposures. I spent a good 4 hours clambering about the slopes at the appropriate height and managed to cover about half of the mountain in that time. I did manage to find a f
  8. From the album: Early Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    10cm. Found in the Wutach valley by Stephan Hack. Scipionianum subzone, semicostatum zone, early Sinemurian, Arietenkalk Formation. One of the very few species in this formation with a raised keel.
  9. Ludwigia

    Shark vertebra

    From the album: Pisces

    Unidentified shark vertebra. 15mm. diameter. An extreme rarity for the Middle Jurassic Late Aalenian in the Wutach valley where it was found.

    Another trip to the Callovian

    I took another trip to my old stomping grounds in the Wutach Valley a couple of days ago. There was a particular corner at one of the exposures in the Callovian to which I'd been giving some thought, so I decided it was time to tackle it. As usual, I forgot to take my camera. Sorry . Suffice to say, it was a successful dig and I took a couple of photos of the finds in the raw once I got home. Then everything went awry. First of all, my air abrader decided to stop working and then the photos disappeared into thin air. I know I took them. They didn't show up as I was uploading them, but I wasn't
  11. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    15cm. A rare find from the Wutach valley. Retrocostatum zone, late Bathonian.
  12. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    5cm. From the Callovian herveyi Zone in the Wutach Valley.
  13. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    6.5cm. From the herveyi zone, Callovian in the Wutach valley.
  14. Ludwigia

    Beat up Macrocephalites sp.

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    20cm. A little squashed in places, but affording a few interesting views upon the septal chambers and walls. Fossilization and preservation are amazing things. Again from the Callovian in Wutach valley.
  15. Ludwigia

    Macrocephalites verus (Buckman 1922)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    14cm. From the herveyi zone, Callovian in the Wutach valley.
  16. Ludwigia

    Macrocephalites sp. (Zittel 1884)

    From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    12cm. From the Callovian herveyi zone (Rotes Erzlager) in the Wutach valley.
  17. Yesterday I returned to the new spot in the Callovian of the Wutach valley which I presented in one of my previous posts. This time the guys couldn't come, so I walked in alone, not to say without a little trepidation since I lost my way on the return journey last time. But thanks to google earth, a geological map of the area and a memory of at least a couple of landmarks, I managed to find my way in. Finding my way out was no problem, since I made sure to file away every twist and turn this time. My knapsack was however so heavy that I ended up depositing it after I'd just managed to lug it u
  18. From the album: Slices

    9.5cm. From the Middle Jurassic Callovian herveyi zone in the Wutach valley.
  19. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    15cm. An indigineous species to the Wutach valley. Originating from the koenigi zone, lower Callovian.

    More to come

    Yesterday I was invited by a few collector friends to join them at a site in the Wutach valley which I had not yet had the opportunity to visit. It was a bit tricky getting there, so I'm glad that they guided me on the walk in. I had to leave earlier than them and ended up taking a wrong turn on the way out since I was deep in conversation with them on the way in and didn't pay proper attention to the lefts and rights, but that's another story. Suffice to say I spent an hour longer in the woods than planned, but I was saved by a nice person in the town I ended up in who drove me back to my car
  21. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    4.5cm. Partial phragmocone with shell intact. Herveyi zone, Early Callovian. From the Wutach valley.
  22. As many of you have probably noticed, I've been concentrating my fossil hunting efforts mostly on the Kimmeridgian in the Danube Valley or on the Callovian in the Wutach. Yesterday I felt like having a change of scenerey, so I decided to visit the classic site at Scheffheu in the Wutach Valley. I didn't realize it at the tme, but I hadn't been back there for a day of serious collecting for 5 years. My, how time flies! At any rate, it was amazing to see how the site had changed over these few years. The beaten path up the hill, which leads first through woods and which used to continue on up to
  23. I was halfway to the Wutach this morning when I suddenly realized that I'd forgotten my camera again. Sorry 'bout that There would have been some nice in situ shots, but at least I can show you what I found. It was a really hot day, and despite the fact that I was in the shadow of the woods, I was sweating like a race horse. I held out for about 6 hours, consumed 2 liters of water and had just told myself I'd had enough when I decided to just chip out that corner over there. And guess what? That big one at the top right popped out. A fine conclusion to a
  24. From the album: Middle Jurassic Ammonites from Southern Germany

    9cm. From the lower koenigi zone, lower Callovian in the Wutach Valley.
