  1. Currently away from home on a work trip but that has allowed me to explore the silt stone laid down by Lake Manuherikia in the Otago region of New Zealand. The period is early to mid Miocene (16-19 million years). I have spent the last couple of evenings searching sites for fossil leaves or anything else I can find. FYI the bottle cap is for scale. I have nothing else with me but I figure most bottle caps are the same the world over. The above is part of a large palm frond. Hyridella shells above in matrix.

    Florissant leaves

    Hello everyone, sorry to be posting so much Florissant fossil quarry material, but I'm going through my collection of foliage and still need these ID'd. Most of these leaves are obviously pretty common, but I can't find some of them in the book Fossils of Florissant. So here they are: 1. Think it's a Fagopsis, but just double checking. 2. Don't really know, feeding traces around the edges.
  3. I've always wanted to visit the Florissant Fossil Quarry due to my interest in paleoentomology but for one reason or other, I was never able to make it out there. I was finally able to make a detour out during a roadtrip returning from a funeral last week. There were beautiful calm skies, which was lucky too since heavy rains were forecasted for the next 2 days. After a good 5 hours, this is what I had to show for my efforts: Most pieces will have unidentifiable organic smudges. Aside from that, small leaves are the most common readily recognizable fossils. I am a terrible botanist
  4. Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Hello! I happened to come across one odd fossil that I could not recognize Some close ups on the leaves The only thing I could certainly determine it is some sort of Fern but beyond that I am unfamiliar of what species it could belong to My next specimen is a Fern leaf of some sort but due to its poor preservation is hard for me to determine what it is from, any Ideas?
  5. Throwing Shade When you look at beautiful fossil leaves, have you ever wondered what the forest was like? Was the leaf from a tall tree, hogging the sun at the top of the forest? Or did it grow in the understory, in the shadows of big trees above? Perhaps we can figure that out. Please join our next online meeting of the DPS at 7pm on Wednesday, October 14th, when we will hear how to “see the forest from the leaves”. Joe Milligan, PhD candidate at Baylor University, will speak on "Sycamores shine a light on ancient canopy structure”. Joe has a BS in Environmental S

    PALAEOBOTANY HELP

    Hi all I was wondering if anyone knew of any good sources- online or otherwise- for pictures (HD would be amazing) of plant fossils in various forms of preservation i.e. compression, cast/mould, permineralisation etc. Any help much appreciated!
  7. I'm going to be taking a drive this year from Pittsburgh to Charlottesville to SE Kentucky, to Knoxville, TN to catch some of the autumn foliage, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestion on fossilized foliage outcrops or spoils piles. I'm trying to focus on ferns and other plants, as I've collected a lot of marine fossils previously and want to get some new types of specimens. I've seen some stuff online about Ambridge, PA and Big Hill in KY, but haven't been able to find too many other public spots besides that. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions or recommendations. Than

    Belated 2019 Road Trip Fossils

    Last year, to celebrate finishing my undergraduate degree, my girlfriend and I went on a long (9,000+ mile) road trip around the western US and at long last (a little over a year since their discovery) the last of the fossils we found are out of the refrigerator and I’ve finally gotten all of them photographed. Here are some of the highlights and best fossils we found. A rough map of the route of the trip While the trip wasn’t entirely fossil centric we wanted to hunt at a few cool spots along the way. We chose to visit 5 fossil locations, the first of which was

    I have tried without confidence on my IDs for these finds from Sweetwater County, Wyoming. I suspect Sycamore?? It would be great to get these labeled properly!!!! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

    Wyoming Wonderland

    It has been 10 days since my trip to Wyoming came to a close. I have done a rough cleaning of my finds and will display some of them for you. To begin with, I had a continuing education class in Jackson. The scenery around the Tetons is truly breath taking. But I was eager to depart and begin a fossil hunting adventure with the 3 free days I had left. I love my bald eagles and found this photogenic pair as I departed town. My first stop was NE of Farson in an attempt to find some petrified palm wood. Here is the "road" which brought me to where
  12. Plant Fossil Trip Where: Naches Formation, Central Washington State, USA Age: Considered middle Eocene to early Oligocene When: July 04, 2020 My short YouTube video of the trip: We arrived at the primary collecting site after a three hour drive through low clouds, over a 1656 m high snowy pass, and through miles of deer infested roads. On the way up, I stopped and inspected 3 other locations in the hopes of finding additional sites; one area yie
  13. I cover 5 counties in SW Mo for my job, and always go fossil hunting. Always crinoinds and their bedmates, unilt this. Low water crossing washed out, so I went hunting. I found this unique fossilation of something. The rock I drug home is 2' x 18". No other fossils except those pictured, anywhere else on the rock. There is another grouping of this same still in the creek, except still attached to creek bottom, that I cannot remove. This was found in Bryant Creek, east of Ava, Missouri in Douglas County. My thinking is possibly some type of foliage? There are

    Fossil leaves

    So here are two more fossil "leaves"- one I found in Missouri but not sure where and the other (dark) purchased at a gem and mineral show in St. Louis when I was a kid-I have no idea where it was found, but I do remember it was a "local" show. The first was part of my early fossil museum ( at that time there was no fee for entering I was only 12!!! ). Am I correct with the little card?. Don't know how I came up with the species. I don't know the other one at all but it was "found" and then filed/sanded into this shape is all I know. Thanks for any help i.d.ing! Bone
  16. New pieces of same rock (new pics as well). ..These 2 rocks are part of the same rock posted before. We split new layers, and found what looks like a branch or leaf to the untrained eye. Any ideas for me to tell my kid who wants to start a museum Thank you. My 6 year old son found a strange large rock with a mid section of discoloration. The top of the rock seemed like limestone and the bottom something else. We split it open and he found this. The rocks were probably imported to support the local stream bed in Emmitsburg, MD. They look like worms, or roots in a rock. Any ideas?

    old colorado fossil site

    As a young kid - in the late 60s - we went fossil collecting not too far from Denver (where my parent's friends lived). I think we paid but I always thought it was a state park or something. I collected fossil leaves like the attached. Does anyone know the spot? Thanks

    End of Another season?

    I just returned from a fossil hunt in Iowa and Wisconsin enjoying the fall colors as I looked for fossils. But the reality of the seasonal changes occurring hit hard this morning. I had soaked some of the fossils in a 5 gallon bucket of water overnight so as to loosen the mud on them. Mother nature added the maple leaves and ice overnight as it dipped to 22 degrees! Florida, here I come!!

    Douglas Pass Colorado

    Fossils found at Douglas Pass, Colorado this weekend. Seed?, Unidentified leaves. Shells. (Elimia tenera and unidentified clam). Plant fossils were found near the Radar Dome. The shells were found at a much lower level.
  20. The ancestors of these trees are almost never found south of the equator, until now. https://m.phys.org/news/2019-06-argentine-fossils-oak-beech-family.html
  21. Last week took a short drive (11 miles of road and 3 on beach) to our local fossil area. 99.9% of our finds are plant parts. Mostly Alder and Willow leaves with some Meta Sequoia tossed in. Some times a birch leaf will find its way in. In the right rocks I've found a number of what I believe are alder cones as well.. After I get back home I'll start working on IDs. Unfortunately the literature is scant but was given one that has some local info. Some planes will have single leaves in good shape. While others are stacked on top of each other but the leaves are damaged. It looks lik

    Leaves - Vancouver Island Santonian

    This is not a great photo, it was taken after sunset at the site of discovery, and it's a bit dirty. I still need to trim the huge chunk and wash it off, and it now sits in a spot with poor lighting, so this is the best I can do for now, but maybe someone who knows Cretaceous flora can suggest an ID for these leaves based on the general outline? The one on the right especially has 3 clear lobes, and note the stems. Platanus? I have never found this type before, in 9 years of collecting up there.

    Mystery Tree, Bark and Leaves!

    Hi, I found these in the Carbonado Formation Washington State. 42 - 47 million years ago. Eocene under a coal seam. I found this bark of some mysterious looking tree. Around the same rock were tons of leaves, all similar to one species (except one leaf which I will also include). I am hoping people can identify the family of tree for me. I also am posting some strange "cattail" / "horsetail" like stem / leaf because this could possibly be a branch from this tree. disclaimer: I am still trying to figure out my phone. The last photo is more clear, larger and detailed. The only differ

    Three glossopteris leaves

    I found this fossil in Newcastle, Australia. I believe it is three glossopteris leaves and some fragmenary material. Is this correct?
