    Fossil seed from London clay?

    Found this at warden point, Sheppey. Wondering if it was a seed?

    Carboniferous flora for ID, maybe a bract?

    Hi! I am new here, my name is Óscar and I am a spanish boy (16 years old) that are interested in paleontology, I like specially flora remains he he. Here I have a unidentified fossil from the Carboniferous period, Stephanian B of NW Spain. Terrestrial environment. Could any body say me what could It be? They are two different specimens, and they are incomplete, but they remind me of a bract, since in the large specimen a more elongated area is attached to something else that idk what is It, but it's from the same specimen, in the small specimen you can also

    Hi all, Any thoughts on who this little guy might come from? It's 9mm long x 4mm wide x 4mm tall. It comes from Lance, Weston county, Wyoming. Thanks!
  4. Hello all! I went on a trip last weekend for fossil ferns around the Pottsville/St. Clair area and found something I think is interesting. Is this a seed pod or something different? As always, all help is greatly appreciated! @historianmichael

    Bracklesham Bay Mystery ?Seed/Fruit

    Hello Everyone, I went to Bracklesham Bay for the first time yesterday and despite the sand found several ray plates, shark teeth and gastropods but this find stood out. I'm not sure what it is but I'm hoping it might be a seed or fruit. I know that Nipa fruit are occasionally found there. Each box is 5mm. Hopefully someone can let me know what it is. Thank you, Benton

    Ozarks fossils

    Hi I need help identifying/confirming some fossils found in Greene county Missouri here are a few. A grub in volcanic glass, a walnut, and a seed beginning to sprout. Could anyone tell me anything about them? I also have some others I need identified. Sorry, I do not have an international ruler. Grub is a half inch long
  7. Hello all, I recently collected this interesting permineralized fruit from the Browns River on Vancouver Island, B.C. This river exposes outcrops of the lower Trent River formation of the Nanaimo Group, which represents a relatively nearshore Campanian marine environment. The fossil itself was found in an outcrop of fairly poorly consolidated sandstone, which also contained large pieces of coalified wood debris and a poorly preserved, crushed ammonite. I'm not particularly optimistic about getting a positive ID on this, but I am interested to see what others think about it, and w

    Eocene seed pod?

    I recently found this on the foreshore of warden point, an Eocene, London clay deposit on the isle of sheppey, it has a woody internal structure that the pics don’t really show and it is kind of symmetrical, is it a seed pod, thanks

    Amber or coprolite or…?

    I thought I had seen the whole gamut of shapes and materials from the Lee Creek mine spoils, but this tiny (2cm) specimen has me stumped. It looks like a tiny brain with “folds” radiating away from a central seam. The “bottom” has a deeper seam, like the meeting of two halves of a walnut. I have found blocks of milky amber in North Carolina before, but nothing with any symmetry. if it’s a coprolite, what’s the seam? Could it be a little skull cast? I have been staring at this thing for a year. Please help. Frank

    Are these fossils?

    A friend found these two items in Northwest Arkansas/SW Missouri in a stream bed. Wondering what they might be. and second item similar size without scale, sorry. Thanks for any comments.

    Seed, egg or nut

    I was guessing some sort of accreation but when a friend dropped it I became confused. Any help greatly appreciated. Found on friends property in the foothills of Denver, CO. USA near the Fossil Trace GG (yes they actually have fossils imbedded in cliffs and other features on the golf course.) P.S. I ordered a centimeter graph pad and hopefully this will be last "improper" post

    Fossilized seed?

    Apologies in advance for the large/unorganized pictures. I think it might be a walnut seed, but I'm not completely sure. I'm no expert on modern plants, let alone ones old enough to fossilize. It was found in the late 1980s/early 1990s. As a kid, I stumbled across it in a riverbed in Needmore, IN (USA). Mainly I wanted to post it as I'm guessing it is unusual to have half a fossilized seed that includes what I think is the nut part of the seed. This fossil was found in this condition (it wasn't cut open as far as I know). I'm guessing the green coloration in the interior is d

    Fossil Seed - Nut - Fruit

    In a collection I recently acquired, some of the fossils in the collection had no ID with them. This fossil looks real familiar to me but I cant remember where or when I saw it. 27mm or a little over an inch long. Any help is appreciated.
  14. Picked out of gravel bank with lovely mix of Qal, Eagle Ford, and who knows what. I find arrowheads alongside crinoid stems. Anyway the symmetry of this caught my eye, it looks like a barrel bead used in jewelry making. I'll be darned if it didn't have two perfectly aligned holes that appear filled in. The ends are identical, I have seen several things that look just like it but I know it could be another concretion trick so seeking professional advice.

    Plant? from Florissant Fossil Quarry

    Hello everyone, I was chipping through my bag of shale I brought back from Florissant Fossil Quarry (highly recommend!) and this fossil caught my eye. It's probably from some plant, could you give me an idea of what it is roughly?

    Carboniferous fossil ID

    I have this fossil here which at first glance I perceived to be some kind of seed, however I’m not sure. These are both from the same individual, just the positive and negative sides. It is just shy of half an inch long. It was found in the North Attleboro section of the Rhode Island formation
  23. I found this nice specimen while hunting for 'white fern' plates out in Centralia, PA. Based off of the size, shape and definition, I'm curious if its a seed of some sort? I left the seed un-prepped with the white silicate mix still present, would love help with an ID
