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...

I found the shark teeth below from the Aquia Formation (Paleocene) here in Maryland today. The two on the left are Palaeocarcharodon orientalis, which are quite uncommon in the formation, so two in one day made for a great day (these are also the first two I’ve ever found). The tooth on the right is a sweet little posterior Otodus obliquus.

Bruce, those pygmy white teeth are awesome! That  complete one is especially killer. Congrats!
