    Is this a Calamite?

    I collected a number of these as a kid some 50 years ago. Only one is like this. I just thought I should try and identify it. I had always assumed it was a small tree trunk. Seems to match pictures of a calamite trunks (a new thing to me) with the distinctive ties at regular intervals. It comes from the old mining town of Brownhills UK. Coal, sand and clay were mined there. This came from the edges of an open pit clay mine. I went back to the site a few years ago but it's reclaimed now. You could still dig small holes and find fragments. So my kids found some. You just needed a bucket of

    Carboniferous flora for ID

    Hello to all. I ask for your help in ID of the next sample. I have a large collection of Carboniferous flora, but this sample surprised me. First, I will publish standard finds from one mine in the Donetsk region of Ukraine. These Calamites were brought to the surface from a depth of 930 meters. Not flattened and of small diameter - an interesting find. 1476001232_1(5.1).mp4 1697913187_1(8).mp4
  3. Greetings to everyone! After a long absence, I came back with some interesting fossil material. Location: Western Bulgaria ~30Kms away from Sofia Age: Carboniferous - Westphalian Formation: Svoge I have visited the place one more time with no success, seeking within the banks of a small creek. Maybe my eye was not trained at identifying fossils within black shale and coal, or I was just not looking at the right spot. Last weekend, the weather was really sunny and pleasant, after 2 weeks of rain so I took Sara and hit the road! I stopped at a spot I could
  4. Went to a site in central PA today and collected some Llewelyn formation ferns and other Carboniferous plants. Second opinions on the following are appreciated! 1, I thought this is an Alethopteris but the leaves look like they can also be some immature Neuropteris with compound leaves with the leaves pressed together. 2. Is this Sigillaria bark? 3. Wasn’t sure if this is Lepidodendron bark. These crosshatched stem-looking prints are quite common at the site 4. is this a Calamite print?
  5. Hello to all. This is my collection of flora from the Carboniferous period. This topic will be filled gradually - there is a lot of material. All material originates from the Araukarite Formation of the Gzhel Stage of the Upper Pennsylvania Carboniferous period (303.4 Ma). Unless otherwise specified, it means that the default sample is from this formation. The type of substitution is silicification (sometimes with ferruginization), sometimes with quartz crystals on the surface of the samples. Enjoy watching Part 1. Sample 1. Part of a branch of small diameter with a

  7. I am looking for some help. I have had this piece in a drawer in my collection for years, if not decades, and it never had an ID. It has a Calamites feel to it, but am not sure. There are also 2 small insects on this piece. I am looking for any ids and a possible location and age. it also has a Green River feel, but I am not sure if that can be the case. I really need to get some tag identifiers on some of my fossils that are lacking them. Thanks for any help.

    Just finished prepping out this Calamites, found a month ago. It was large and colorful, worthy of posting a picture. It came from Ambridge, Pennsylvania. This is mahoning shale/ Pennsylvanian. I will include a few of the other finds too. A close up showing the details present. Unidentifiable twigs and small branches were common Occasional seed pods were found Fern leaves of multiple species were easy to find. Not the best one found. More of a typical one at this site. The

    Mazon Creek fossil IDs

    Hi guys. I'm looking for some more help identifying these Mazon Creek (Illinois) fossils. I think one is some sort of calamites? Thanks for your time.

    Calamites or Cordaites?

    Many years ago my dad and I visited St. Clair, PA to collect its famed Late Pennsylvanian plant material. With the closure of St. Clair to public collecting, several years ago, we went to the next best place: Centralia, PA. In going back through our finds to ascribe a proper classification to them, I have come across several finds that I believe could either be Calamites stems or Cordaites leaves. The issue is that these fossils preserved without much detail to go on. In doing some research online and on here, I think I have figured it out, but I am not completely sure. Any help is greatly app

    Annularia or Asterophyllites?

    A couple of years ago I visited a site in Central Pennsylvania with exposure to the Late Pennsylvanian Llewellyn Formation. I found a lot of Annularia and Calamites pieces. I also found this single whirl. I initially chalked it up as just another piece of Annularia. I recently came across the publication "Fossil Plants From the Anthracite Coal Fields of Eastern Pennsylvania." The publication has been very helpful in assisting me put a species identifications with all of my finds from the various Llewellyn Formation sites I have been to. When I tried to compare this piece to the images of Annul

    From Mattson(Mississippian) or Fantasque formation(Pennsylvanian) just outside of Fort Laird NWT Canada. these were quick snap shots before i had to jump in helicopter from a fire tower on top of a small mountain. i am guessing based of discription it is Calamites cistii? did my own research so could be way off. From what i have read this is one of the only Carboniferous deposits in the entire region.

  21. Hello all Since I can't go to school for a couple of weeks I have time to catch up with some ID's. Most of these plants and pieces of wood have been in my collection for years, thinking it's impossible to ID these because of lack of location. All of these come from old collections without labelling. I know next to nothing about plants or wood. 1: No location at all. Piece is about 10 cm wide. I am not 100% this is actually wood and not just a mineral, but I think these are growth rings. 2: This piece has been in my family for the past 3 generati
