  1. Iwent today for a new carboniferous hunt,very hot today in Northern France
  2. VickyRenee

    Does anyone know what this might be?

    Another one of my rocks that has an imprint of something. Found in Northwest Missouri near Grand River. Any ideas? It's about 5" x 4" x 1.5". Pic with flash and 2 without flash.

    Hidden Fossil

    Hi, I found this beautiful little asterophyllites yesterday and noticed that there seems to be some rock covering part of the fossil. I'd like to be able to remove the rock and expose the fossil. It's very solid and too thin for any of my chisels. Would an air-abrasive pen or dental equipment work? Perhaps professional help would be appropriate.
  4. For the last 4 years I have been collecting plant fossils from sites in East Central Illinois. These fossils were all brought to the surface by underground coal mining in the first half of the 20th century. Most of the spoil piles in the area have been graded or flattened out, but a few still remain, standing tall above the flatland. One particular pile is, I believe, the source of most or all of the fossils I find. The shale that makes up the spoil has been fired by the internal heat of the pile, resulting in the hard, reddish material known as "red dog". This shale i
  5. Howdy! Just posting some of my finds for ID. Feel free to correct or specify. I can provide dimensions if needed as it's hard to get good pics with a measure of some of these. The first two look like Asterophyllites to me. The third, fourth and fifth, I'd guess Sphenopteroids (the fourth is only 1 cm from top to bottom). The sixth I think is Annularia. The rest I believe are Neuropteroids.
  6. Before Easter,a nice hunt in the carboniferous today :)in situ pictures
  7. On my way back from picking up my wife in Georgia, I stopped in Marion, Illinois to attend the Southern Illinois Earth Science Club Show. The show runs for 2 days, 4-9-22 and 4-10-22. A lot of people attend this show and I attended in the past. I will state, that I would have been disappointed if I drove the 5 1/2 hours to just attend this show, due to the lack of fossils. I will post some of the fossils that were for sale, but nothing struck my fancy. The best part of the show was looking at some Pennsylvanian plant fossils that were collected a few miles from Carterville, Illinois.

    Centralia Plant Fossils

    Hello everyone, I recently went on a trip to the fossil sight in Centralia Pennsylvania the sight was absolutely incredible practically every rock had some kind of a fossil in it and many of them had mineralized white which contrasted really well with the dark rocks they were on. We found many instances of Ferns (pictures 1-3), we also found a lot of what looked like bark (pictures 4-6) and also what seems like a large pumpkin seed, around 3/4ths of an inch by 1/3rd of an inch (picture 7). I know that Identifying plant fossils not as simple as it is for animal remains but I was wondering if a
  9. L.S., As the title says, please show us your fertile plant fossils --- Seeds, pollen organs, sporangia, flowers, cones and a great many other types of fructifications: the plant kingdom is incredibly diverse in terms of reproductive strategies. The vast majority of plant fossils consist of purely vegetative remains, however, making the chance encounter with fertile remains all the more special. I'd love to see your gems! To start off, I'll share some examples from my own collection below. Cheers, Tim DEVONIAN Fertile specimens from
  10. Almost there! Over 270 pages of full color fossils from the Pennsylvanian of North Texas The long-awaited sequel to the Pennsylvanian Fossils of North Texas (2003) Available Q4 2015 in hardcopy, digital and e-reader formats.
  11. The Mesozoic is an area that is sorely lacking in my collection. I don't know why, but I just never got around to collecting in it. I never fell in love with dinosaurs or mososaurs like a lot of other people. That was until fairly recently, when I finally took it upon myself to diversify my collection and get to know better my area's (and in some ways own backyard!) geology and paleontology. I set out to discover more about Maryland's Mesozoic Park. I guess it would be best to start off from the beginning. I started the journey not knowing what I'd find, but knowing w
  12. Hello! I've had these photos for about 10 years and am wondering if I can find some clues to identities or possible types of fossils. Sorry about no sizing, etc. I wasn't thinking at all about that! Just enjoying a quiet, gray day surrounded by fossils. Thanks!

    An Odd Florissant Find

    Hi, I last visited this site a while back, after I received some fossil shale from the Florissant Quarry a couple years back. You all were wonderfully kind in responding. Well, I've upgraded my home lab (I've been hunting tardigrades for the last year or so), and I have a solid stereoscope, and I decided to revisit my shale to look for microfossils or things that I'd missed. I came across this section (perhaps half an inch in total); the view is a shot through my stereoscope. To my eye, it's plant material, and it looks like wood cells. From what I understand from Herb
  14. Sunny day on the coal heap today the barks were numerous and the ferns a little shy but nice also!
  15. Ahunt into the Mist today But i have found nice Alethopteris nice Eusphenoptheris But it was a great day for Lepidodendron! Good sigillaria nice calamites trunk a trigonocarpus(fossil seed) And why not minerals to make a change septaria(i neglected them,in the past)but these are very nice

    Moenkopi Formation Tracks

    I recently received a few tracks from a friend and haven’t really shown them here. Enjoy Chirotherium barthii or Isochirotherium sp. Moenkopi Formation Holbrook Member Arizona 240 Million Years Old Middle Triassic These tracks were actually studied by Spencer Lucas and Hendrix Klein earlier this year. There also seems to be some plant material mixed in with the tracks in the larger slab in photo 4 as well, however I’m not to sure what species so I’ll probably post them in fossil ID later. Smaller Slab Larger Slab

    Mazon Creek specimens for ID

    I have six more MC specimens that I need help with identifying. Again, down to species level if possible. The only one I'm fairly sure of is the Coprolite.

  19. I've spent some time gathering at the plant layer locally. I was able to pry behind the layered shale and pull out some larger pieces unbroken, and also split them. The layer is a delight, just about any piece I recover has some sort of plant impression on it. Immediately below the layered shale there is a more nodular type of rock that no longer breaks apart in neat and tidy planes. So whatever environmental change happened, it happened right at this layer. The first one was a really long and well defined fern frond. The carbon is all still in place. I want to create a parallel cu
  20. Today was another great day huntig for carboniferous plants,with few good surprises
  21. I'm getting better with plants, but I haven't really found anything that says seed or spore pod to me. This one finally does. It's a small depression with texture. I wish I had the other side, but I didn't see it. This was from a layer with many ferns, Calamites, and Cordaites. Concretions are about non-existent here. In fact, there may be none at all. It's the texture in the depression that has me thinking seed pod mold.
