  1. That day was so exciting, because I found a really nice specimen of Mixoneura wagneri fern, a specie that isn't very commoon in the area. And the color is... I had the luck of found some Arthropleura armored pieces too (I have to clean and glue them) and a small part of a cockroach wing. Terrestrial fauna are very rare in Spain... I found It on a restored coal mine from upper Carboniferous, Stephanien B of NW Spain.

    Fossil finds

    The BBC news has ran two great fossil find stories leading up to Christmas first headline was Largest millipede fossil ever! found on a Northumberland beach Arthropleura in a sandstone block Howick bay. The second story was of the best ever dinosaur embryo in egg found in china thought to be an Oviraptosaur. Both news items are worth checking out as they are fantastic finds. Merry Christmas to you all John
  3. Afternoon all. I am relatively new to fossil collecting and identification (having collected only a small amount over the years on Manitoulin Island not far from where I am currently live in northern Ontario. I am writing this posts as the title suggests to inquire about Arthropleura fossils and how to properly identify one/what they even look like? I known that trace fossils created by this species exist, but is it possible to also find fossilized body segments, such as plates? I thought I seen one that had indentations of sorts (almost like little holes but not quite) on it but am not sure i

  5. Arthropleura is one of the most impressive animals that lived in the Pennsylvanian coal swamps. It is also the largest terrestrial animal known from the Mazon Creek deposit and largest terrestrial arthropod of all time. This giant millipede reach an enormous size estimated to be approximately 2 meters! Unfortunately we do not find complete body fossils. Tergites, limbs and an unusual joint structure that connected the leg to the body (rosette organ) have been found. Any Arthropleura material from Mazon is extremely rare. I would estimate there are only a few dozen specimens kno
  6. Hello everyone! I am a total noob to all of this and just joined today! I've been on this website before and everyone seems very knowledgeable and helpful. Having said that, can someone help me out with this specimen? I tried to look this up online and ended up confusing myself. Initially I thought it may be referred to as Diplichnites left behind by a millipede, but another Google search led me in the direction of possibly Protichnites left behind by trilobites. Is there any way to tell (if any) what this is or what could have made it? I beli

  8. A bit of information I came across today in Paleobotany: The Biology and Evolution of Fossil Plants . Arthropleura may have been important for pollination of Medullosa (seed ferns such as Macroneuropteris and Allethopteris). It sounds like one of the lines of evidence is an arthropleura part from Mazon Creek. Interesting.....
  9. Here's a mystery item. When I first looked at this, the curve and dimensionality of it made me think it was a seed (trigonocarpus). However, looking at it closer, it looks much more like animal than plant. Maybe not arthropleura, but perhaps some other creature? Overall shape sort of suggests a segmented arthropod. Here is detail of the 'pointed' end. Notice the pattern of raised lines running along it. Here area details of the rounder end. EDIT: This was found near Coal City around the border between Braidwood and Essex.
