    Fantastic Fern Fossil In Flint

    An acquaintance found this on a ranch outside of Roscoe, TX. I presume it's some sort of fern. Any chance we could narrow it down further? It's a lovely specimen with a special remembrance for the collector. Appreciate any help you can offer.

    Holoptychius scales?

    Hi everyone! I was just going over some of my Catskill fossils when I stumbled across this one, which appears to be two Holoptychius scales alongside lush plant material, especially on the other side (though you can see one stem to the right of the upper scale). The picture on the top is under normal light, the lower one with a bright light from the side to highlight some details. Could anyone help with ID?
  3. A couple months ago I received a message from a friend letting me know of an opportunity to collect a usually inaccessible Mazon Creek site. The area used to be a popular with collectors but has since been reclaimed as a subdivision. A house was finally being built on one of the last undeveloped lots, and this meant spoil piles while the foundation was being laid. I initially planned to go later in the week, but instead decided to wake up early the next day and drive down. This ended up being a lucky decision, as the foundation was filled that very next night. The site was not superbly product

    Cretaceous plant ID, Croatia

    Hello, I found these two plants in platy limestones on Dec.19.2021. in Bojići, near Trogir, Croatia. Geology is late cretaceous-turonian. Can they be identified tro some degree? Thanks
  6. Could you help me ID this plant fossil (stem?) from Morocco? Scale is in cm.
  7. I was inspired by @Mark Kmiecik and his quality photographs to finally learn some basic image editing. I had this beautiful Crenulopteris acadica fern open yesterday and figured it would be a good specimen to make a first attempt. Let me know your thoughts.

    Ft Gibson Dam Plant Fossil

    Hi, I am having trouble identifying what appears to be a plant fossil. I found it recently at Ft. Gibson Dam in Oklahoma. The most tell-tale markings are in the lower right hand corner of the attached photo. Any I.D. will be much appreciated. Also does anyone know the formation? Pitkin Ls, from the Mississippian is at the dam, but my ROCKD app had the formation as Atoka, which is Pennsylvanian. Thanks to PetrolPete for guiding me to this site.

  18. From the album: Missouri Plant Fossils

    I was recently contacted by a specialist who is studying Neuropteris lindahli and identified this section as most certainly being another piece, I have another section here which he identified as another Neuropteris Lindahli mislabeled as Pecopteris.

    A plant in limestone?

    This one has been sitting in my "interesting but I have no clue" pile for a while. When I found it, I was splitting limestone laying in the stream. I've found that when you split limestone, immediately after splitting you'll get a couple moments of a sharp looking specimen before things start to oxidize. The limestone is a very dark gray, or almost black color. You either see black limestone or white calcite pieces while splitting. I split this particular piece open and right in the middle was a 3-4 cm long, 8 mm wide gold looking rectangle in the middle of the flat broken limeston

    Mazon Creek - Cordaites or wood?

    The smaller specimen pictured opened this morning and reminded me of the larger specimen which I found earlier this year. They are very similar looking. My first thought was Cordaites borassifolius due to the linear striations, but the specimens are fragmentary and the preservation is not great so they could also just be indeterminate wood fragments. I don't think I've seen a Cordaites specimen in person before so I am not positive either way. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    I collected this specimen last year but still can't decide on an ID, it's pretty fragmentary. Any thoughts are appreciated. @bigred97 @flipper559 @stats @Nimravis @deutscheben

    Collection Photography

    L.S., Though I think I generally keep a reasonable administration (insofar as numbering and cataloguing my specimens), the identification and photography seem to always lag behind... One of my goals for 2021 is to catch up a bit, so I've been reorganising old photographs and taking new ones. Many old identifications have been reconsidered too, often actually yielding less specific results... At this stage, I thought it would be nice to share some of the updated photography work. Sharing the photographs helps me keep motivated and may even prove useful for identification. I plan to
