    Plant roots or worms?

    Found in southwest Wisconsin. All the other fossils are aquatic. There are hundreds of these type in all sizes. Plant roots? Giant worms?
  2. Starting in early 2021, I've been going fossil hunting at the Mazon Creek area in Grundy County, Illinois. The site I visit the most so far is the fairly large Mazonia-Braidwood State Fish and Wildlife Area. After advice from other members of the Fossilfourm, I've decided to put the nodules I'm most curious about under the microscope and dissecting scope! With these better photographs, I'm wondering if anyone could give a proper ID for these specimens?
  3. Starting in 2021, I've been going fossil hunting around the Mazon Creek area in Grundy County, Illinois. The site I visit the most so far is the fairly large Mazonia-Braidwood State Fish and Wildlife Area and at first, I would barley find anything. Then after visiting Monster Lake and another secret location in the area, I started finding more fossils. However, most are around 2-7 cm. In length and I'm still having difficulty getting IDs for them? Would anyone be able to help ID them? I think this could be some sort of Chondrichthyan or a lobe finned fish?
  4. I went today to the museum of natural history Lille Northern France,nice place to visit!

    Carboniferous Bark, Roots, Stems?

    I was rooting around in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, Beaver County yesterday and found some interesting plant fossils. They are Pennsylvanian and out of the Glenshaw Formation. Not sure if they're identifiable or if I would need a microscope to ID. Any help is appreciated.

  7. Fish, creature, or plant? I wish I can clean it up more with out destroying it, any tips? The rock still has moisture.
  8. I am going to split this open and take pictures of what is found. This is from a fossil bed in Clarkia, ID. These are roughly 15 million years old. This area is has a very different climate than what these fossil plants can survive in. You can also find garnets in this area too, but not in the fossil beds. My husband worked hard on getting this out for me to work on, but since the sun was going down quickly I didn't have enough time to complete the splitting there.
  9. Howdy! I've been hunting mostly plant fossils in the Pittsburgh area for about two years. This is a sampling of some of my favorite pieces. I hope you enjoy! All are Glenshaw Formation finds. 1. Neuropteris fimbriata 2. Metacoceras 3. Metacoceras 4. Asterophyllites 5. Lepidodendron obovatum 6. Neuropteris Ovata 7. Crenulopteris acadica 8. Brachiopod, Linoproductus? 9.

    Pennsylvanian Fern ID

    Hello! I have a few dozen plant fossils for ID. I'm going to go one at a time, but if you'd like to see them all, please go to the Members Collections section of the site with the link below. There feel free to offer corrections, specifications or confirmations. All are from the Glenshaw Formation. This first fossil looks like Pecopteris arborescens to me. What do you think?
  11. Before I post a trip report, I was hoping to get a few IDs that are giving me some trouble. First up are possible insects. 1. Crane Fly?? 2. positive and negative. Bee?? 3. Has the termite feel!! 4. Another Crane Fly Now what appear to me to be plant oriented material. 5. I am torn between three leaf clover (but how would that end up in a lake), or a flower, or a seed pod cluster. 6. Total unknown 7. Finally this confusing specimen. Great symmetry so must
  12. I have collected wet clay or shale with many types of fossils embedded in it. I have found leaves, a fish, a pine cone, wooden bits, ect. Much of the fossils are there and havent turned to rock, so may not be considered an actual fossil. I am hoping some may have ideas on how to preserve these. I got them from Clarkia, ID. There is a youtube video called "Plants are Cool, too! Episode 2: Fossilized Forests!" that talks about the area. I am missing out on fossils opening it a wet clay because I can't split many thin layers, but splitting it in when dry it seems to crumble. Trying to figure
  13. In the summer of 2020 jpc and I had planned to get together in Eastern Wyoming to collect. That trip was unfortunately aborted by the coronavirus outbreak that year. This year, that conversation resumed and a new plan for a three day excursion in June emerged. I decided to make it a two week long car trip, driving all the way from New York, a longer car trip than any I've made in the past 25 years. That would afford me the opportunity to stop at some other sites on the way there and back, plus see some family. Another big reason for driving was an opportunity to visit and collect at the Big Ce
  14. The Rhynie Chert preserves one of the oldest terrestrial ecosystems, which is a hot spring environment. It's Lower Devonian, and the oldest know harvestman was also found there. These are some photographs of my thin sections from this environment. This first thin section is one of my favourites, it has several Aglaophyton major plants that contain fungal cysts of Palaeomyces gordoni, containing spores. These are more Aglaophyton major cross sections. In this and the one above, there are a few vascular bundles, these consist of thin-walled protoxylem cells

  16. Hello everyone, I have recently received an old collection from an old married couple who weren't interested in it anymore. Some of the items were purchased in 1905! They got them from the man's father who was Dutch. Unfortunately, many of the fossils did not come with their labels, and the labels I do have are written in Dutch, and in cursive... I will be posting most of the fossils on the forum through the next few days in hopes of getting some id's, locations, ages, as well as any other useful information. If the photos aren't clear enough just tell me the number so

    Carboniferous Plant Fossils

    Recently visited Whitehaven in Cumbria, UK, and split some ironstone/shale rocks on the foreshore towards Parton Bay. I could mostly identify the many Calamites however I did spot some pinnate leaves which I am unsure about. The fossils are of the Carboniferous Period, Bolsovian Substage (315.2-309.5mya) a few million years prior to the CRC. The specimens here look somewhat like modern pine leaves though it is my understanding that conifers were not fully established at this point. Could they be the leaves of Calamites themselves, as all of the specimens are found in rocks als

    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.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. Before Easter,a nice hunt in the carboniferous today :)in situ pictures
  24. 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
