  1. Original material mushroom fossil?

    I bought this at an estate sale. I assume the best I can do for showing it is video. Can someone please help me figure out if its real.
  2. I have some pollen grains, spores(?), and other non-pollen palynomorphs as well, which I would like to identify that I photographed from a number of slides. However, I have no eye for these things yet (if only my university offered palynology courses!) so I am in need of references to start reading and hopefully use to identify some stuff now and in the future. I know that it's a pretty specialized area, but any input could be helpful as references accessible to people who don't yet know how to identify these things seem to be few and far between. I have access to Paleopalynology by Alfred Traverse (2007) through my university. I was given Fossil Fungi by Thomas N. Taylor, Michael Krings, and Edith Taylor (2014) as a gift from a family member. It's a lovely book, and excellent reference for fungi. I have found little on pollen and other terrestrial microfossils aside from Traverse and Taylor that seems useful. Marine micro/nanofossils get a lot more attention, apparently. While I am a student with a good working knowledge, I still need stuff that's clear and not too technical, as I am mostly learning this on my own. Anyone have suggestions for other material I could make use of (both modern pollen/palynomorphs and fossils)?

  5. Petrified Mushroom

    This was found in SW Washington, Pacific County. Looks like a petrified mushroom from reference books but have not come across this one in particular.
  6. Conc fossil ?

    Hello all, I found yesterday what I believe to be a large fossilized tree conk. I found this on top of a nearby mountain in the middle of a large rock slide area. I compared it to some living samples and it is very similar in structure. What do you think?
  7. Good evening to everyone, I am really very new to fossils and petrified items so I am at a loss as to what I may have and I need your help. My grandfather left me this piece when he passed away a few months ago and it was marked "Petrified Mushroom". I have included some photos for your review and if you have any questions please let me know. The mushroom, for lack of a better word, is about 22" long by 14" deep by about 3/8" in height. It weighs just about 74 grams and has a spot in the middle that looks like wood, it looks like it was cut or removed from a piece of wood maybe a tree. Any help anyone could provide would be extremely appreciated. If this is the wrong forum to ask about my item I deeply apologize, just let me know and I will remove the post right away. Thank you again and I hope everyone has a great week.
  8. Cretaceous mushroom in amber????

    I need help in identifying this. Is it a mushroom in Cretaceous burmese amber? Cenomanian burmite from machine state?
  9. Petrified fungi

    Just need some advice on this fungus if it is fungus I believe it's a mushroom it's hard as a rock and weighs about 40 lb any help would be great.
  10. Hi all, Here is piece of petrified wood with coprolites. I sent an inquiry about a year ago to a termite expert who had helped me in the past, but didn't heard back this time. It happens. I don't know if we have any termite experts here in the forum, so I thought I would put this one out there just in case. It was found in sandy soil near the Belgium border at the Buschtunnel, in the forested Preuswald District of Aachen, Germany. What is interesting about this specimen is that it contains coprolites of different sizes and what I believe might be termite balls. I am thinking the larger coprolites could possibly be from a queen/king, but may be from a totally difference species of arthropod. One gallery has tiny ovoid structures that are the right size for termite eggs, but their shape seems wrong, so I am thinking maybe they could be from juveniles. With the exception of the hexagonal termite coprolites, the labels are just guesses on my part. Any insight would be helpful. Also, can anyone tell what type of wood this is? As always, thanks a bunch! In case you are wondering, termite balls are fungi balls that mimic termite eggs. They survive by tricking termites into thinking they are their eggs so the termites take care of them. Fun, huh?
  11. Fossilized mushroom???

    I have a fossilized or agatized mushroom. It was found in estill co,KY. I would like to see if anyone on here might know what kind of mushroom it is and how it got like this. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
