  1. @stats @Mark Kmiecik @RCFossils @Peat Burns @connorp @deutscheben@fiddlehead I had been in contact with a friend (Bob) of mine that I met over 30 years ago. I met him through my fossil mentor Walter. Bob and Walter would collect in the 70’s and 80’s with many well know collectors, including Francis Tully. The would also bring fossils to the Field Museum so Dr. Eugene Richardson and others, could ID some of their finds. In our talks over the last several months, he had spoke about selling his collection and I advised him that I would be interested. We came to an agree

    Mazon Creek Flora

    I've been spending a lot of time lately studying the Mazon Creek flora, and am continuously astonished by the diversity and quality of specimens that can be found. I don't think we see enough plants on the forum, so I figured I would go ahead and share some of my favorite finds. First is a specimen I recently shared, and a fitting start to the thread. This is Crenulopteris acadica, the most common true fern found in the Mazon Creek flora. It has been the most common plant I find, accounting for probably half my finds. Next is a favorite of mine. This is a s

    Braceville Mineshaft Question

    Hi. I was planning to take a look at the Braceville Shaft Mine site this summer, ... can the public access it?
  4. I'm in the process of photographing and cataloging specimens from a new site and thought some here might enjoy seeing some specimens as I go. These fossils were collected in eastern Illinois from the roof shales of the Herrin (No. 6) Coal. They are middle Pennsylvanian (Desmoinesian) in age. The Herrin (No. 6) Coal is the second to last coal member of the Carbondale Formation. For reference, the Mazon Creek biota occurs in the Francis Creek Shale Member, which overlies the first coal member of the Carbondale Formation, the Colchester (No. 2) Coal. Here's a general stratigraphic section of the
  5. Hello all!! I am a graduate student at Oregon State University, a geologist by trade, but a paleobotanist on the side (see my publication :https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/abs/10.1086/721261?journalCode=ijps). I am going to add to my Paleocene fossil plant collections, and am going to make a tour all around eastern Oregon. I will of course visit Fossil (again) for some more Bridge Creek Flora specimens, but do not personally know the area super well. Do any of you have any recommendations for plant fossil locations where I can legally collect? It would mean the world to me, I

    Carboniferous trip

    Some photos in situ from my last trip into a coal mine in NW Spain. Carboniferous fossils like Calamites, Aphlebias, Sigillarias, Ferns, an ultra complete cordaites...
  7. I am working on some fossil mounts as gifts and was wondering if anyone could help me Id or had an idea of what these leaves are. The first two are the same kind of leaf I believe. The two taken without the ruler: image three 2 inches, Image four 2 1/2 inches! These all come from around Burns in Eastern, Oregon. A HUGE thank you! Nyla
  8. 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.

    Some Carboniferous flora

    Here you have some beautiful fossils that I have been finding lately ^^, all of them come from the same coal mine in the NW of Spain, Stephanian B, Upper Carboniferous. I hope you like them! 1. Parasphenophillum crenulatum 2. Neuropteris ovata var. Hoffman 3. Aphlebia crispa 4. Diplacites emarginatum 5. Oligocarpia gutbieri 6. Calamite suckowi
  10. I recently went to a site in wich there are only one single specie, Neuropteris ovata. But Neuropteris ovata has many diferent shapes and sizes wich depend of the area of the frond wich the pinnules come from (Upper, lower, terminal, basiscopic, acutifolia zones, etc.) You can also find Cyclopteris fimbriata, that are big basal leaves from the frond. Upper Carboniferous of NW Spain. Here are some examples:
