  4. I went in my fav sites to look after new carboniferous plants
  5. Can somebody tell me what this matrix is

    Can someone tell me what that rock that contains these plants is. Ash maybe? its a shale type material almost flint it feels like it was found in south central WV in Lincoln county it comes from the pennsylvanian era i believe.
  6. Plant, animal

    Hi I. New here. I’ve been collecting for about 5 months in central Texas. I found something that I’ve not come across before. It looks like something from a palm like plant but it could be an animal... it’s 3.4inches long . Thank You.
  7. Unknown Fossil

    Found at a antique store near Deadwood, SD
  8. Plant fossil???

    I’ve found other fern/plant fossils in this area. Is this one as well? If so, what’s on it? I have others to show as well. Found in Ohio in a river, north central area. Thanks for all information!

  10. What is this? Myrtle Beach find

    No idea. Kind of reminds me of a sea urchin, but not quite. Also reminds me of the kind of "hat" an acorn wears. It's got a little peak to it. Animal? Plant? (Side view and better top view added below in a post.)
  11. Is it plant debris?

    Is it plant debris?
  12. Plant fossil

    What plant it could be?
  13. Help with ID please!!

    I found this today at Walton-on-the-Naze, UK. It’s pretty small and I’m really struggling with identifying it. Might be something cool but maybe not even a fossil? It was found on the beach and is likely from the London clay (Eocene - Ypresian stage). It’s really common to find plant matter in this, I came away with loads of fossilised wood. So I’m thinking possibly some sort of plant fossil? Maybe a seed or something? Was also thinking it might be a coprolite or something like that but it’s fairly uniform in shape. It’s a little damaged and shows what seems to be clay infilling.
  14. My youngest son found this leaf last year and its been sittin im my garage for awhile. I had my middle son trim up the rock and ready for me to do my majic. Found in Colorado, Green River Formation, Eocene RB With just some careful brushing with some cut Glyptal you can see how the left side is much better now. I did just a tad bit of scribing to expose the tips and stems of the two little leafs and then some more careful brushing with my glyptal and WA LAAA!!!

  16. A few weeks ago Mrs R was asking me about TFF. General questions about members and their collections. I did not realise she was fishing for some Christmas gift ideas. I showered her a few of our members collections and she really liked Ralph’s thread “Sometimes You Have To Whack It !!” So yesterday I was very surprised to unwrapped a nice little collection of Mazon Creek fossils . I don’t think there is any rare specimens and unfortunately there was no IDs included. Mazon Creek material is quite rare to pick in the U.K. so she did brilliant and I was very spoiled. I will have to check Ralph’s thread for some IDs. Thanks @Nimravis for inspiring MrsR to purchasing me a wonderful gift . And if anyone has not seen Ralph’s thread it is really interesting a worth spending time looking though it. Cheers Bobby
  17. Newbie

    Hi all, complete newbie here! I have an old fossil I've dragged around with me for decades but have been unable to identify it. I've googled images and still haven't found anything like it. From what I have found, it came from a generally Cretaceous area in southern Oklahoma, south and slightly east of Ardmore in Love County. The landowner gave us permission to surface hunt (my boys were trying to earn badges for Boy Scouts) The section I picked up was the only loose part of a roughly 4 or 5 foot long "trunk" that was still encased in rock (hardened red clay), so the short section is the only part we could get. It does not look like any petrified wood I've been able to find, but more like a reed or rush, only very big. Tried to get close enough to see the longitudinal grooves as well as the bands around the "trunk" but I'm not sure the resolution is going to be sharp enough to show up. It reminds me of a giant stalk of celery the way the grooves run down the length! Sorry for the vagueness, we found it about 35 years ago. Am hoping someone will recognize this. Thanks in advance!
  18. Plant or Arthropod?

    I found this in West Yorkshire (UK) in the Pennine Lower Coal Measures formation (upper Carboniferous). I suspect it is plant, but it also looks like some arthropod fragments I have seen. What do you think? Thanks, Daniel
  19. Odontopteris perhaps? Fern / Plant

    I think this is Odontopteris. The flat leaf tips are what have me thinking that. I have lots of local shale that I can pull these from readily, but maybe once or twice over an hour I can pull one this size out. Any fern experts here able to validate? Attaching a couple fossil plates that I use to identify local ferns.
  20. Castle Hayne horse tail?

    This was found in North Carolina, Castle Hayne section 3/4 strata. A fellow club member ventured it was a calamites, I was told those were extinct by the eocene so maybe an equisetum? What is it? The collage is stages of simple prep.

  22. plant fossil

    i found this fossil plant in the Santa cruz mountains i cant identify the plant here are both sides of it.
  23. Devonian Lycopsid?

    I found this interesting fossil in the area of the Beltzville dam in Pennsylvania. Exposures in the area are generally Upper Devonian Mahantango Formation so I was surprised to see what looked to me like a lycopsid plant. The area where I spotted this find was mostly devoid of fossils but there were exposures with usual marine fauna within a few hundred yards. If anyone has any thoughts, I would appreciate it!

  25. Sphenophyllum?

    I have two different nodules from September that I think may be Sphenophyllum. Both nodules were found open, one had one half heavily covered in minerals. I did a short rinse in vinegar to clean that off.
