  1. I am going to start adding some images of my favorite finds which I call Collection Pieces. Identifications range from maybe, probably to most likely. I've only started to seriously collect over the past year. I've spent a great deal of time studying and learning Geology, as a hobby. I am located in Western Pennsylvania. At first, a map of the area. Anything in bright yellow is the Glenshaw Formation. The Ames Limestone layer exists between the Glenshaw and the Casselman Formations, which is the Orange color on the map. I have yet to explore the Ames Limestone, so I've only found f

  3. I found this little fern at the North Attleboro fossil site, and I cannot seem to put an ID on it. The leaves seem to be confluent, so i’m thinking maybe a juvenile Alethopteris or some other Pteridospermatophyte
  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

    Sphenopteris?

    This fossil was found at the North Attleboro fossil site, and I’ve had it marked down as a species of Sphenopteris but i’m not 100% certain

    Carboniferous seed

    From my last hunt in the Westphalien of Northern France,the stem seems to grow from the seed(Trigonocarpus)but i think the seed probably fall on a Alethopteris stem,very strange An Idea?
  7. Howdy everyone. I have found some great resources on here for finding cretaceous fossils here in Texas. I also fiddled around the coast and found a turtle scute and some shark teeth. I'm having a really hard time finding any information of places that are open to the public, or for that matter any spots in Texas open to the public (as 97.8% of the state is privately owned) If any Texans read this and wanna help a fellow fossiler out, please point me towards some good spots. I live in Corpus Christi (2 1/2 hours from San Antonio or 7+ hours to Dallas so please nothing too

    Fossils in MA I discovered

    these are the fossils i discovered over at a sight in north Attleboro wanting to follow in the footsteps of a group of tuft university students who discovered a mayfly a few years ago this is the actual fossils i found. hoping I find a new species in rhode island just waiting to be discovered if that's possible today I still find them there and donate them at the natural history museum and planetarium in Providence RI sometimes you can see me carry a bag full of fossils i found
  9. Another find in Pit 11 of Mazonia-Braidwood complex. Found already open on the ground. I was unable to find the other half. It looks a bit like the images of Neuropteris fimbriata and Cyclopteris trichomanoides in Jack Wittry's "The Mazon Creek Fossil Flora."

    Mazonia-Braidwood Vertebrae

    Pretty sure these are amphibian vertebrae. Found in Pit 11 in the Mazonia-Braidwood complex.

    Mississippian fossil, Arizona

    This little thingy was in Mississippian Redwall limestone in central Arizona. It was in a section of the Redwall with very few other fossils. It's about 10mm long and 7mm wide. What do you think?
  12. Good day. In this topic, I will display fossils that I found interesting. Some of them were found by me, but most of them were obtained by exchange or bought. I have already exhibited this coprolite in another topic, but I want to duplicate it here. This is my personal find, and it is interesting because on its surface many scales of the Senomanian fish have been preserved.
  13. Hello! I had previously found a fern fossil somewhat near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and while inspecting it today, I found peculiar mark on some of the leaves. An individual suggested microconchids, which appears to be correct but I wanted a second opinion for confirmation. I was also hoping that someone could describe how these occur? Were these microconchids in soil or aquatic environments, and did they consume the plant matter while it was still on the plant or after it detached and lay upon the substrate? Thank you very much!
  14. Over the past year, I've become fascinated with the often bizarre fish and sharks of the Pennsylvanian. Fortunately, my home state of Illinois is a great place to hunt for such fossils. I've shared several of these in other posts before, but wanted to put everything together in one thread. Probably won't have much to post for a few months after this, but once summer rolls around, I should hopefully have plenty of new finds to share. I would say there are three major settings in which you can find fish fossils in Illinois: Mazon Creek, black shales, and limestone. I have not had luc

    Seaton Sluice Fossils

    Hi I heard about seaton sluice and other carboniferous exposures along the coast. I understand that bivalves etc can be found there but can fish remains be found there? If not is there anywhere else in Northumberland/County Durham where carboniferous fish remains can be found?

    Strange fossil, Bug? Plant?

    Sorry about the double post on here, i’m sorting out my display at the moment. I’ve got this fossil here that I found in North Attleboro, it’s pennsylvanian in age and at first I had thought it may have been an insect, probably just wishful thinking. It’s about a half inch long

    Wayne's Carboniferous

    When it comes to fossils, I am a generalist by nature. I haven't met a fossil that I didn't like! However, in an attempt to narrow my focus a bit, I have decided to take a cue from Adam ( @Tidgy's Dad ) and start this thread. I hope to showcase some of my collection, but more importantly have a central place to post IDed specimens, information I have found regarding them, and/or ask for help with IDs. Hopefully other's will get enjoyment from seeing the specimens and potentially learn a thing or two. So come along on my journey through the Carboniferous! If you haven't had the plea

    Mazon creek purchase

    Hello everyone As a quick Christmas present to myself (mainly driven by being unable to get out in the field) I bought a cheap job lot of mazon creek fossils. The lot was entitled fossil wood and was advertised as partials and repaired specimens which I was happy with at that price. However this wee oddity was included as well. It appears to be something soft bodied? I'd love some more info from any mazon creek knowledgeable folk out there if possible. Thanks in advance. Approximate size of feature is 35mm Hollie
