  1. Hi all, I’m excited to be going on a field trip with a a group in Illinois (ESCONI) later this month to a site that has a huge mound of mined-up Pennsylvanian shale. There may be some carbon-film plant impressions there. I’ve never collected this type of fossil before, and I’ve heard that carbon films can disappear quickly when exposed to the air. My question is should I bring something to coat this type of fossil? And if so, what? In doing some research, I see that some people recommend spray-on Krylon while others recommend against it. Would brushing on a thin coat of Paraloid do t
  2. From Ohio, grew up in Brownwood Texas. I’m in town for the weekend and am looking for directions to Wilson’s Clay Pit and any other public locations to hunt fossils. Thanks!
  3. From the Kansas River levee in Lawrence, along a jogging trail. Should be Pennsylvanian period. Thank you in advance. I told her it's a dancing chicken fossil but she doesn't believe me. Sorry for not having a ruler.
  4. Rod shaped structures with central cavity, shape reminded me of urchin spines. Bryozoan and coral in background. I thought about weathered coral but the structures seem too straight. Smaller rock with similar but larger structure on back.
  5. This photo was sent from a person who knows nothing about fossils or geology so the questions far outnumber any answers. We hope to see it in person in 2 weeks or so and will then determine the location, confirm the formation, and provide the size. The area around Jacksboro Texas, the only information we have now, is mostly the Graham formation, so that makes it marine deposits in the Cisco group, Late Pennsylvanian. I have tried to imagine it could be a bryozoan or some kind of plant but nothing I know of is a good fit. I thought maybe someone here might recognize it.

    First Year 4H Exhibit

    We have been collecting for our first year 4H exhibit. These were all collected in Kansas in the Smoky Hill Chalk and also in Southeast Kansas around Greenwood, Elk, and Chataqua counties. We are looking for some concensus on our identification. We have had a hard time this year due to Covid. When we used to do this 15 years ago we would go to big meetings where we would get help identifying things. This year it was all identified on site and the leaders were very busy helping many people as best they could. As you can see we have already caught quite a few errors ourselves so we
  7. Hello everyone! I discovered some fossils at a site previously identified as being from the Pennsylvania period. Thanks to anyone who can identify because I don't have enough knowledge and I don't find anything on google about this type of fossil. In addition to these fossils, I found annularias, calamites and pecoteris among other species. Geologically, the soil has river sandstone and other sedimentary rocks. Thanks
  8. Today after work, I went to a new-to-me site in Iowa City. I had seen an old online pamphlet walking tour of the geology of the University campus. They listed a site they described as Pennsylvanian sandstone/siltstone in which they said there may be impressions of wood fossils. Here’s a piece I found: It’s very fragile, so I’ve only done some very light cleaning with a soft brush. Here’s a closer image: Here’s an even closer image where you can really see the grain. Am I right in seeing wood here?

    Mazon Creek id help

    Hi everyone, I was going through some more of my Mazon creek material and could use some help with ids I have some ideas what these might be, but I'm still pretty inexperienced and would really appreciate some help. Thank you in advance!
  10. The fern belongs to the Pennsylvanian period. It was found in Missouri in the potsdam formation it’s around 4cm
  11. If you are in the area, I am planning on heading down this weekend to do a bit of poking around (Oct 3rd 2020). I was in the area last weekend chasing extant species for work, and as expected the 2019 floods exposed some really promising spots along the road cut. If you would like to go along, let me know. Remember this is a no-dig- surface only excursion. I have been looking for the fabled trilobites from the sites along the Platte River for over a decade now, and am hoping this might be the year. Also a great spot for rugose, bryos, and more crinoids than you can string in a necklace.

    Neuropteris sp.

    From the album: Missouri Plant Fossils

    One of my favorite finds comes in at roughly 2.8cm and has two beautiful leaves next to each other!
  13. I read @rachelgardner01 's trip report* recently on the fossil forum telling about St. Clair-style white fern fossils and how the ghost town was once again being visited by more than just the most reckless of thrill seekers. Not long ago, extremely few people dared to go beyond the new bypass for fear of falling into flaming sink holes. The place has become unregulated like the Wild West, with tourists coming from all over to see the “Highway to Hell” and ride their ATVs. The fire was reported to have burned out in town and moved down the coal vein. Clearly, no one is worried about sink holes.

    interambulacral plate?

    Hi all! I believe I just found a interambulacral plate, but have never found one before and no echinoids have been found at this site before (as far as I can discover). I'd love it if I'm right, but if not and it's some strange cirnoid mutation that's okay as well. I found this south of Humboldt, Nebraska in what I believe is the Root formation, (but it was at the bottom of the roadcut, so it could also be from the Wood Siding or Onaga). Any help verifying/properly identifying this would be appreciated!

    Nodules Embedded In Siltstone..

    Hey there, I've been fossil hunting in Iowa for a few years now. Not in the best areas, but I make do. Recently I was walking the Des Moines river in Boone Co. IA. The area is said to be the Cherokee group by the USGS, specifically they call it either Atkoan or Morrowan. Although there is also a "Desmoinsian" bed that some books mention. The age of the outcroppings are middle pensylvanian. Most of the cherokee is shale, coal, and some sandstone and limestone. It comes from a sandstone ravine that's about 2 miles north of the area called Ledges state park. Which was a part of a huge de
