  1. Cracking siderite nodules

    Have been cracking Carboniferous siderite nodules ( and thumbs ouch ) with Elliot at home that were collected from Doncaster UK. Could anyone tell us what Carboniferous plant this might be please measuring about 7mm. Positive photos Negative photo
  2. First Fossil Hunting Trip(s)

    A break in the bitter winter cold gave me a bit of spring fever this week. Thursday I had to venture to Newport for an errand and the weather was a balmy 30-ish and sunny, I decided to go check out this location. Tides were favorable for hitting the beach this week and I took advantage. With the major storm that came through recently, I figured there might be some new rock eroded down to search through. Armed with only my brick hammer, goggles and gloves, I scoured through pieces for about an hour. The rocks here were pretty well saturated, and those that did not outright disintegrate trying to split them, only revealed mud and ice between the layers. I tried placing them in sunlight to dry a bit, but finding anything in the field was futile. I grabbed some small slabs that for whatever reason seemed promising and brought them home to split. While carefully splitting at the kitchen table, my 4 year-old took up brush-cleaning duties. It was a fun little project for lil man and I. The haul yielded some potential finds, and a thirst for a return adventure with the kids.
  3. Cory's Lane Outting

    It's a bit short notice, but I'm planning to do some shale splitting this Sunday 6/11/2017 at Corys Lane. The weather this weekend is looking good and low tide is at an opportune time on Sunday (about 3pm). If anyone is bored you should come say hi .
  4. Today,I made a nice hunt for Carboniferous fossils and i have found few nice pieces,in situ pictures
  5. Bothrodendron Calamites node Stigmaria Sigillaria Asolanus Seed fern and... token from that mine\
  6. Lepidoploios Laricinus

    Lepidoploios laricinus from my last hunting trip Lepidodendron Sigillaria Bothrodendron Stem
  7. Lepidodendrons

    Some new Lepidodendron specimens Bothrodendron Stigmaria Lyginopteris rachis
  8. Not sure but it seems "attached" Bothrodendron sporangia Bothrodendron bark Lepidodendron aculeatum Neurodontopteris Psaronius Seed fern rachis Sigillaria
  9. It is quite warm and quietly here today. Last house before the coal spoil is still damaged. I go through the street and start my hunting. This site has brought me a lot of Bothrodendron specimens. One more Then I've found four specimens more. You can see some details of the Bothrodendron stem surface: Stigmaria (probably the Bothrodendron one) A couple of thin branch prints
  10. Lepidodendron wortheni Lepidodendron sp. Sigillaria Syringodendron Bothrodendron
  11. I have found third place in Donetsk with Bothrodendron specimens!
  12. Lepidostrobus Axis

    It was quite snowy and frosty last morning. I found a couple of stones, one red, another - grey. First contained the Lepidodendron branch fragment with some interesting details including the Lepidostrobus axis fragment (third in the row): Second contained the Neuropteris leaves (incl. Macroneuropteris): and Lepidodendron leaf cushions close up Site view
  13. Octoberhunt

    Bothrodendron bark Lepidodendron serpentigurum Koenig Lepidodendron sp. Lepidoploios bark
  14. Quick hunting under cannonade: Bothrodendron Calamites Lepidodendron, Lepidophloios Seed fern Syringodendron
  15. Bothrodendron Sporangium

    Bothrodendron bark Bothrodendron shoots Single sporangium
  16. Bothrodendron Branch

    Site Quite unusual kind of poppy growth at that spoil. It has the "seed stick" instead the "seed box". Anisotomous branching example More Bothrodendron specimens Sigillaria Lepidodendrons Alethopteris
  17. Axis Rotation

    This is unusual Bothrodendron branch scar fragment, because stem's axis do not match to the scar's one. I presume that I found an example from the specific stem zone just beneath the main "fork" of the stem (main dichotomy). I have never seen something like that!
  18. I went on the coal heap to hunt for carboniferous fossils today the low level heap in the morning
  19. Hot Weather Trip

    ‪Sommer, hot weather, war around. I can't trip far from my home. Last trip finds: Sigillaria Lepidodendron Calamites Bothrodendron Neuropteris
  20. Dean Spindler, my friend from the Illinois State Dept. for the Natural Resources have sent me some fossils from Mazon Creek. Thank you Dean! I share some with forum people.
  21. Lepidodendron mannebachense has a special cone bearing branches in it crown. The cones are attached to the branch through the peduncles. You can see that hole diameter at the branch (point of peduncle attachment) is equal to the hole in the cone (empty space along the cone axis) - around 3-4mm. Back side
  22. Calamites Tissue

    Sometimes I found the Calamites specimens with netlike tissue structure And other finds: Lepidodendron Lepidophloios Sphenophyllum Fern Asolanus Calamites?? Something I didn't ID yet. I thought that is Psaronius aerial rootlets mantle (Tubicaulites). But Bruno ("docdutronc") think that is fertile section of the Asolanus stem (Carboniferous lycopod). His drawing.
  23. Bothrodendron specimen details. I think that is the Bothrodendron rizhomorph fragment Stigmaria Bothrodendron cone axis Lycopsid leaf cushions Decorticated lycopsid Unknown to me plant Sigillaria
  24. What's That?

    Plate contains the Bothrodendron stem compression and structure I can\t ID. Any ideas...
  25. Last trip finds. The same as previous site. Bothrodendron shoots Kind of jamed stem Fern stem Lepidodendrons Sigillaria (Siryngodendron) Something unusual. What it might be! Sigillaria leaves at the point of attachment?
