  1. Morgantown Ferns

    Could someone put a name to the type of fern in this fossil? Found in Morgantown WV
  2. October Ghost Town Hunting

    Last fall, I drove out to Centralia, PA, the famous burning town. The coal vein below the town caught fire, creating random sinkholes filled with toxic gasses. The town was abandoned. The buildings were bulldozed. Only the most foolish set foot in the town limits. Today, however, the fires have mostly followed the coal vein out of town. I was out once in September, just to check the lay of the place, then returned in October to find fresh "No Trespassing" signs. Darn! Six weeks ago, I got a report that the signs were down. The person making the report said they double-checked with the locals in the next town and were told that yes, it was fine to go fossil hunting out there. So, today my hubby and I went to investigate. The signs were indeed own, replaced two with Keystone State logos. One banned motor vehicles. The other announced that the property owner agreed to allow game hunting but a permit was required. That was it. In we went. The fossil outcrop is part of the Lewellyn Formation, which also runs through the now-closed St. Claire site. Lepidodendron, calamites and cordaites cover almost every inch of the shale. The impressions are coated with shiny, black graphite, white pyrophyllite and kaolinite, plus some bits of other colored iron oxides and even some shiny pyrite. If you go, be warned that the slope is steep and treacherous. I used rock climbing gear so that the scree didn't slide out from under me, sending me sliding fifty feet or more down the hill. The woods at the base are navigable, if a bit tangled in spots, and are littered with everything that weathered off of the slope, including occasional large hash plates.
  3. Fern Fossil New Mexico?

    It is from New Mexico, likely from Pennsylvanian formations. Is it a fern?
  4. Fossil Fern.

    Macroneuropteris macrophylla, a Neuropteris-like group seed fern, or Fern. Not sure if the matrix is shale. Could this be from Mazon Creek. Illinois? 4 x 3 5/8th x 2 1/2 inch. I am rather sure it is North American. Macroneuropteris macrophylla, a Neuropteris-like group seed fern or Fern. Age: ca 314 Mya
  5. Need help with ID

    I’ve just recently found this fossil in the North Attleboro fossil locality and need help identifying, it is a little bit longer than a half inch
  6. Hello! and I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon! I found these two plant fossils and was unsure to what they might actually be. They look a lot like modern seeds but I know I am not always informed and I keep having a slight suspicion they could be apart of some other plant material! If anyone could help identify and confirm these plant fossils I would be very grateful! I have found leaves from Neuropteris sp , Cyclopteris sp, and a few other plant species in these types of limestone! Info that I could gather: Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Specimen #1: Two halves of one seed? (roughly 9mm) Other half: Specimen #2: Larger and wider seed? (roughly 3mm) I unfortunately do not have the other half to this one!
  7. Neuropteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

  8. Cyclopteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

    The leaf section of the specimen is 3.6cm wide and length is 3.3cm long!
  9. Is this a fern?

    Found this back in April on a mountain, still amazed by the detail. Not sure what species it is, the area is mostly Carboniferous.
  10. Hello! I have found a few ferns at a road-cut and was wondering if anyone could identify these ferns below! I have found trilobites (small), Neuropteris fern leaves, many Calamites, and ocean invertebrates in the area. I was very lucky to find these plant fossils as they appear to be relatively uncommon in the road cut area! Specimen #1: I found this lovely leaf with a few imprints of fern fossil right next to it! (3.5cm) Specimen #2: A lovely... Ginkgo? I had posted this previously on a different website and noted it looked like a Gingko. I was not sure as the leaf has a more rounded edge and not a split edge like the Ginkgo I saw online Nevertheless it could be a squished Ginkgo or a related species! Specimen #3: A lovely leaf and one of my largest that I was able to find (5.3cm) Specimen #4: A beautiful fern fossil leaf (3.4cm) Some general information I was able to gather from the area! Time period: Pennsylvanian Location: Missouri Formation: Upper Winterset Limestone Thanks to Missourian For the possible Formation ID
  11. Calamite #2

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

    One of my favorite Calamites due to how well preserved its internal anatomy is! I gave this to a friend's little brother who loves fossils.
  12. Neuropteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

    One of my favorite finds comes in at roughly 2.8cm and has two beautiful leaves next to each other!
  13. Cyclopteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

  14. Possibly Cyclopteris, Or Neuropteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

    This specimen is roughly 5.3Cm!
  15. Pennsylvanian Plant ID Help

    These fossils were found in Westville, IL (Vermillion County) a long time ago by my great grandfather (the grey/black fossil; he worked in the coal mine), and my dad (the light brown/reddish one; on a slag heap). After reading this Publication Title: Guide to Pennsylvanian fossil plants of Illinois Publication Type: Geoscience Education Series Author: James R. Jennings Year: 1990 and looking at a number of photos for comparison, I am wondering if these are Alethopteris sertii? (other guesses are Neuropteris and Acitheca). At least that is my (un)educated guess after desperately trying to make sense of the Jennings paper. Also, on the first photo within the green box I noticed that the foliage has two different looks to it. Were the individual leaves (?) different or is this a result of the way the plant was fossilized? I appreciate all corrections and additional knowledge/comments on these two fossils. This forum identified a nautiloid I have, and I am so appreciative of the feedback and support you give!
  16. Bunch of fossils, might buy

    The ones I know are the crinoid plate, knighta, PA fossil fern, dactylioceras, random ammonite, two moroccon trilobites. However, I have no idea what the middle yellow like imprint is nor the two species of black trilobite in shale. And then the two upper left fossils have me clueless. Wanted to know what they are before I consider buying. Thanks again for any help. Again, no location or collection information.
  17. Zeilleria Fern (?)

    From the album Plants of the Lewellyn Formation

    Peek a boo! A Carboniferous Zeilleria fern from northern Pennsylvania is exposed through a chip in the shale. Normally I'd just chip it out, but I'm thinking I might just leave this as is. It appeals to the artist in me. Lewellyn Formation Pottstown Member

  24. A very small group of us ventured into the wilds of northern PA last weekend, equipped with masks and a permit to poke around a state wildlife preserve with Carboniferous Lewellyn Formation exposures. It was a gorgeous day and the colors of the limestone really shone in the sunlight. As we got there, a pair of permit-less fossil poachers were just leaving. How do I know that they didn't have a permit? Because they absolutely did not follow the rules. Since it is a wildlife preserve, it is important that anyone looking for fossils not leave craterous holes in the ground and replant any plants that were uprooted in the process of digging said holes. They left holes everywhere. Our intrepid permit holder filled in most of the holes so that she could keep getting permits in the future. For this reason, I'm not going to be any more specific about the location. That said, there were so many wonderful plant fossils to find! The site is remarkable for its red, orange and yellow limestone, which makes for some terrific, high-contrast fossils. Many of them had crisp details. What's more, there was quite a variety.
