Hello! I had previously found a fern fossil somewhat near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and while inspecting it today, I found peculiar mark on some of the leaves. An individual suggested microconchids, which appears to be correct but I wanted a second opinion for confirmation. I was also hoping that someone could describe how these occur? Were these microconchids in soil or aquatic environments, and did they consume the plant matter while it was still on the plant or after it detached and lay upon the substrate? Thank you very much!
