    Florissant leaves

    Hello everyone, sorry to be posting so much Florissant fossil quarry material, but I'm going through my collection of foliage and still need these ID'd. Most of these leaves are obviously pretty common, but I can't find some of them in the book Fossils of Florissant. So here they are: 1. Think it's a Fagopsis, but just double checking. 2. Don't really know, feeding traces around the edges.

    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?

    Florissant Leaf- Cedrelospermum?

    Hi everyone, I wanted to confirm the identity of one of the leaves I found in Florissant, CO back in 2017. At one point or another I saw the genus Cedrelospermum pop up on here or instagram associated with a leaf which caught my eye in its similarity to my own. I would be interested in seeing your opinions. compared to images I found elsewhere online

    Weird Florissant Shale thing

    Hey everyone, Asking about a piece of shale I just opened, there appears to be a little soft-bodied creature on it, however, it could just be an insect. The small piece measures exactly 1 and 3/8 of an inch. Is it a badly preserved beetle? Notice the small oval-shaped things lining the back. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    Florissant insects.

    Nothing has been said in the Colorado section for almost a year now so lets kick it back up. A little over a week ago I posted some pictures of florissant stuff in the I.D. section. I got a lot of good help and then for the ones we couldn't figure out I tried searching for some that are similar but there's not many different photos online from florissant. I was wondering if anyone could help or if someone knew the florissant formation really well.
  6. Here's a collection of all the specimens from florissant i still need an I.D. for. This large leaf i need an I.D. for Small bug about 1 centimeter across Some sort of moth i have no clue what insect this is. Could this be a dragonfly wing about 2 centimeters long but still partially covered. Could this be a wing to the right of the leaf Last one some sort of flying bug. Plant and insect experts please help I know it may be

    Florissant I.Ds

    At Florissant Colorado (dated to the Eocene) my family and I found these fossils and I would like to I D them to know what I found. I didn’t have a 12 inch/30 centimeter ruler so I used my six inch to make a ruler on a piece of paper it is accurate I promise. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
  8. This was found near Douglas Pass In Colorado. The imprint is just under 3 inches point to point. I am having a hard time figuring this one out. The shale is from the same formation as Florissant Colorado from what I understand,

    Heading out to Florissant

    Hey everyone, My wife is heading to Seattle for a week, so I’m planning a little fossil hunting in her absence. I plan on hitting up Florissant for some insects, then maybe a little Wyoming BLM hunting. If anyone is around the Ft. Collins area and wants to join, send me a pm. I have a brand spanking new Tacoma off-road, and I don’t mind driving. -J

    Florissant Insects?

    I have been involved in a post "Florissant Fossil Quarry Fun". To make a long story short, I took the advice given to preserve my specimens from Florissant. Unfortunately some of my specimens had already broke. So I took out my razor blade and split them further. To my surprise, I think I found 2 insects!!! Your thoughts?
  11. Hello everyone, I've had a lifelong passion for fossils but I'm a relative newbie to collecting, having only done it for the last 3 years. Most of my previous fossil-collecting trips were in NC, where you find sharks teeth and shells by sifting through creeks or looking through mine deposits. I know very little about how people do it out west, which has turned out to be a big problem. On a recent vacation to Colorado, I looked around Florissant Fossil Beds and also ordered a shipment of fossils from the quarry. The shipments arrived about a week ago, and there's some pretty interesti
  12. This was purchased in Colorado, about an hour away from Florissant which is known for insect fossils. It's about 10 mm long. What do you guys think? Real, fake, a mix of both? Thanks!

    First Presentation: Our first speaker will be Carl Fechko. His topic will be: "The fossils of the Florissant Fossil Beds". The Florissant formation is world famous for its abundance of well preserved insects and plants. Carl's presentation will focus upon the knowledge that he gained from a visit to The Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. He will also share his experience collecting fossils at the Florissant Fossil Quarry. Second Presentation: Donna Cole and Craig Tipton will combine their efforts in a talk entitled: "A Trip to Wyoming, July/August, 2018". It will cover the hig

    Florissant spider id ?

    All, My son found this orb-weaver spider at the Florissant Fossil Quarry in Colorado last month. It's about 1.5" (4cm) between the tips of the longest legs. There are short thorns on the abdomen, and possibly on the bases of the legs as well. Overall, it's very much like the golden orb-weavers whose webs I have the occasional misfortune of walking into in my garden. Can anybody tell me what genus, or perhaps even species this may be?
  15. The Florissant Fossil Quarry in Florissant, Colorado, has been on my list of places to visit. It is just outside the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument west of Colorado Springs. As much as I would have liked to go dig at the quarry, I knew that wouldn’t happen this year. So I decided to order some shale from the quarry and have it shipped to me. Even at $7.50 per pound plus shipping it was less expensive to buy the shale than to spend a week on the road getting there and back from California. After emailing Nancy Anderson at the quarry to work out the details, I mailed off my check
  16. The Florissant Fossil Quarry in Colorado is near the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, famous for Eocene plant and insect fossils. You can dig for fossils at the Quarry and they will also ship shale to you to hunt on your own. I’m probably not going to be able get out there any time soon so I was thinking about maybe having them ship some shale to me. But before I spend $7.50 per pound plus shipping for maybe 20 pounds of shale, I thought I should check to see if anyone has experience doing this. I know it sounds expensive but it is cheaper than taking a trip out there. Any though

    Florissant something

    Always go through the chips left on the table. Any idea what I almost missed ?

    Cedar ?

    Another Florissant find. This looks a bit like cedar cones to me. What would the polka dotted thing be though ?

    Wasp ?

    Another Florissant insect.

    Robber fly ?

    Back from vacation with this find from Florissant. It seems a possible match for the one on display at the monument.
  21. My wife and I are headed to a wedding in Denver this weekend. I know its short notice but any locals have any suggestions or hot spots for some petrified wood or some fossils? I am already planning a trip to Florissant for the pay dig shale splitting for a few hours. And I have found a lot of possible petrified wood spots but don't know how much time I have to be scouting uncharted territories. And of course I am not going to say no to any good fossil spots either. I do have tumblers and rock saws so the petrified wood is really on my radar. I do have the Rockhounding Colorado book too b
  22. This week I am visiting family in Colorado. A few days ago I took a lovely trip to Florissant Fossil Beds. They had lots of interesting stuff at the visitor center. I found a privately owned quarry nearby in which they let people break open shale and search for fossils for a small fee. I didn't find much, but it was very fun! The pics shown are a leaf and a small insect. The wings were unfortunately chipped off when I found it. I also visited Dinosaur Ridge nearby and bought an Elasmosaurus tooth from the shop. I then saw the fossils displayed at the School of Mines geology museum. Very cool

    Halloween Spider!

    Found this guy last night splitting some shale I had laying around. Found on a piece about the size of a quarter!
