Any ideas on the contents of this small nodule split open at Port Mulgrave this week
Some sort of bone?
If so what bone and what creature?
Thanks

Hi

It's a couple of articulated paddle bones from an ichthyosaur.

Very nice find

Ummm. After looking again I've decided to change my ID to two plesiosaur verts.

I jumped in too quick!

Regards

Nice paddle concretion, I've had an Ichthyosaur paddle concretion from Port before, been some high tides lately but a lot of people down very early...

As confirmed on the Facebook Yorkshire Fossils Group, this is actually the back of an ichthyosaur skull! It was Vert Finder (from this forum) who spotted it!

Hi Guys
Thanks for the discussion,the discussions also being going on quite interestingly on the Yorkshire Coast fossil hunters site and there is some in depth comments from some top experts.
Turns out it is the back of an icthy scull with a rare piece of bone amongst it not apparently found previously on the Yorkshire Coast not bad for a random nodule sea washed
