    Carboniferous plants

    Hi, i've found plant fossils on a Carboniferous site in the Aspe Vallée, near Etsaut. I thought those could be sigillariae. What do you think ? Item 1 Item 2 Item 3 Item 4, here i think i have some calamites, my question is more about what is seen at the upper left corner, calamites too ?

    The Daily Fossil Record

    Inspired to act by Jamie‘s @JamieLynn and their “fossil a day” thread. I been thinking about creating a digital visual catalogue of my collection for a long time now . Been very dyslexic this is a difficult task to undertake. After seeing Jamie’s thread I thought one fossil a day will just take a sort time to photograph, collate and post, making this more achievable task . I will also keep a digital copies for my records. Posting on the forum means that other members can see my small collection and help me if needed with incorrect IDs or names that have changed . The forum has been really

    Possible Fossil Ohio

    Unknown possible fossil found with Ohio glacier gravel. Can anyone tell me if this is a fossil/imprint or just a weird rock formation. The swirl goes up to the top, very strange! Thank you!

    What are these 'stalks' on this geode?

    Hi all, I found this chalcedony geode on the Nordmany coastline. After later inspection i found these 'stalks' all over the geode, i assume it's a plant fossil. Could anybody tell me exactly what it is? They are quite small, the one in the second picture is 1 cm long. Thanks in advance!

    Unusual Carboniferous Plant Fossil

    Howdy! This specimen comes from the Pennsylvanian Period, Conemaugh Group, Glenshaw Formation, in the Mason Shales below Brush Creek Limestone. The area has a lot of Pecopteroids, Neuropteroids and Calamites. However, I've been informed that it is not Calamites. I should also note that this piece was part of a larger fossil cast that was crumbling apart when I found it, and unfortunately, I was unable to save the rest of it. The last picture is the back side. All help is appreciated and thanks in advance!

    Petrified wood nugget

    Hi, I’m new here, just posting a couple of recent finds from a recent trip to the surf coast in Victoria, Australia. This one I believe to be a nugget of petrified wood, found embedded in a cliff shelf sedimentary layer above volcanic basalt (from an eruption previously dated to 26Mya). I can see clear wood grain (I think), so pretty confident this one is petrified wood, but would appreciate any comments/suggestions! A lot of the fossils in the surrounding layers are echinoids and brachiopods, so I am guessing fossilized driftwood? the object is hard and smo

    fossil of skin, plant, or coral?

    New member here. I have aquired a few fossils over the years that I need help with. This is the first one. I found it while digging in a yard in Tuscola County, Michigan. It is 3cm high and 2 1/2cm. Two sides are 1cm thick. The other two sides are 1/2cm thick. There's a chip in it that exposes the white portion.
  11. One of the nice things about collecting Mazon Creek concretions is that most specimens don't require any prep - they open up and are good to go. This however was not one of those cases. This concretion exploded during freeze thaw last year into hundreds of pieces, and on most pieces the fossils were still covered by sections of shale. It took around 25 hours in total to reassemble the concretion and prep out what wasn't exposed. Big thanks to Kris @Ptychodus04 for helping to finish the prep work. This is a large frond of the rare fern Mariopteris nervosa.

    Plant fossil ID

    Hey new member, Found this fossil at work. It is in shale rock and there is what appears to be ferns through the layers. There have been a fair few big and small. Found in Queensland Australia

    Glenshaw Formation Unknown

    I found this piece in my back yard a couple of years back and I still don't know what it is. It is Pennsylvanian, Glenshaw Formation and from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Thanks in advance for all help.

  19. 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.
