All collectors love to find fossils. In this topic, you can post your latest personal find. 

 

I have buy the 95% of my fossils and in Greece you can't find any rare fossil. But I go to a Pliocene formation in Rafina/Pikermi (nearly Athens) and I find bivalves and barnacles. The large barnacle on the photo is my best personal find and I found it just today.

 

Post your latest personal find!

Very nice.:)

For one reason or another I have been unable to go collecting myself for quite some time. 

But I survive by prepping what I already have and through the generosity of TFF members. 

I recently bashed open a rock of Vinlandostrophia brachiopods sent to me by the wonderfull Debra @Paleomeand was delighted to uncover this rather gorgeous Trematis millipuncta inarticulate brachiopod. 

Lovely. :b_love1::brachiopod:

A bit over one cm wide. 

 

So this is my latest find.

 A tiny ammonite (Paracalycoceras - 1 inch) and a honking big scallop impression (Neithia roemeri - 5 inches). All I've ever found of these Neithia roemei is their impression. Wish I could find a cast.  (Texas Cretaceous)

oooohhh. @Ludwigia your ammo is much prettier than mine! But that's okay....ammos are pretty rare in my area, so I am happy with whatever I find!

Nice to see such a topic again!

Hippuritid rudists from newly self discovered sites, most of them recovered from the pavement of forest roads...
