60mm is my biggest, they do get bigger though, and mine is pretty rough. My biggest Striat is approx 43mm, i do have some very broken ones which look like they may have been bigger though, shame.
Cheers, reckon my best chance is at Burnham.
Thanks

Love the ray spine, I have still not found one in spite of hours of looking! I have found Striat approaching 5cm in size but they are rather rare. I really want to find a Notorynchus more than anything, also had Galecerdo and Physogaleus. If we met up at some point I'd love to bring a few of my teeth for some help on ids (or I can put them on here). Great finds Jim.

Hi Jonny
 

Thanks Im really pleased with those finds!

I too would love to find a compleat Notorynchus, I found a tiny piece of one this winter! I have seen the three Notorynchus on Alan mortons web site in the flesh, they were great! Wheres mine!lol!

 

I have a couple of Physogaleus but no Galecerdo haven't seen any of those come from barton. You should definetly put some pics up on here. There will be someone on the forum that can id them if I can't so go for it!

 

Cheers Jim
You never know what you could find next!!

Well played, Sir. The teeth are beautiful. If you want Notorynchus, Sheppey is your man. They're not fantastically common, but they are there.

Those Notorynchus teeth as well as not being very common, also tend to be quite fragile (relative to other sharks' teeth) as they are very thin and so snap and break very easily. A friend of mine has a Hexanchiforme tooth from Walton, although it is derived, i've never found one in 8 years of looking at the Naze! 
Thanks
Dave

Hi Andrew

 

Thanks for the comments! I have lots of favourite shells from Barton but Volutospina is definitely the top five! If you go down in the winter you should have no problems finding a nice complete one! I live very local to Barton so if you ever want some advice on when to go down PM me and I can pop down and see what the conditions are like.

My best Volutospine is the one I have pictured as my avatar! It's in mint condition!

 

Cheers, Jim.

Hi all
 

Haven't had much to post about resently because conditions down barton haven't been great but I

I look forward to that, Jim! And I know what you mean about that Barton stuff... It soon builds up, and can be a bit of a sod to clean. Given the same number of large fossils it's paradoxically much less work.... Hence I've been trying to sweet-talk Barton into handing me more Clavilithes and Hippochrenes. No luck thus far though... lol Cry

Hi Jim,

Here is a photo of what I think is Galeocerdo tooth (left) with a Physogaleus secundus tooth that I found at Barton.I
amy be wrong on the I.D and won't be offended if you correct me! I
found some good bits at the Taddiford Gap last weekend, big bits of
turtle plastron, croc teeth and an interesting bone that I would like
people to help ID - photos coming soon.

Hi Johnny
 

Some cool looking teeth there, not sure about the id's! any chance of some more pics of the back of the teeth?

Iv been looking in some books and the one on the left looks a bit like Galeorhinus minor. 

Comes up on google images, take a look see what you think!

 

Cheers Jim

Despite the hot weather there is still the odd bit of dodgy clay and in fact I had to pull one girl out who was stuck up to her knee!
It was a lovely day and I even managed to find some nice gastropods.

The highlight of the day was watching a young couple having a massive row which envolved lots of screaming / swearing / slapping!!!!

LOL That'd be "Eastenders Syndrome"

 

No one appears to be sporting a knotted hanky, what is happening to English tradition ?

The last person I saw doing that was Andy Currant (NHM) on an old Time Team programme from Centre Parcs in Thetford!
