  1. Possible Eocene Horsetail?

    I found this in western Washington in the renton formation 38 million years ago. I don't think this is a horsetail because I don't see super defined nodes. But if anyone knows what this could be let me know.
  2. Prince George's find

    Found this horsetail impression after our recent heavy rains.
  3. Equisetites sp.

    From the album FreeRuin's Finds

    The imprint of a stalk from an ancestor of the Horsetail. Equisetites sp. Hartford Basin Shuttle Meadow Formation Massachusetts
  4. Calamites?

    This was given to me from a third hand source. I’m only assuming it’s from Illinois—I really don’t know. I supposed it was a calamites horsetail, but I’m seeking confirmation before I catalogue it. Anyone?
  5. Found this ages ago just lying alongside the road in Illinois... I think it was Illinois... heh... structure looks similar to a calamites horsetail IMO, but the symmetrical succession of the parts is curious. Any ideas?
  6. Calamities Brand and Fern

    From the album Carbondale, PA

    Carbondale, PA Lewellyn Formation Pennsylvanian period 299-323 myo
  7. Hi, I'm mike. I have been reading forum posts for a while now, thought I'd join to share and learn.. I became aware of the local geological features late in life, but now have more time for rock kicking. The Newcastle coastline has many , easily accessible, points of interest, volcanic dykes, faults, petrified trees, fossils and exposures. They are in the stratigraphy of the Newcastle Coal Measures, Northern Sydney Basin, late Permian 252-255 Ma. The majority of preservations are Glossopterids but also horsetails, cordaites and ferns. Maybe not as spectacular as dinosaur bones, but interesting all the same. I recently picked up a couple of specimens at a local rock platform that might be of interest. The names and classification are a bit confusing to me, but I've tried to ID them using Mary White's Greening of Gondwana and Australian Fossil Plants, and quote her descriptions. Please indicate any errors! Photo 1 (..637) Palaeovitiaria, ( glossopterid leaf ), no mid rib, no medium groove and the veins are almost parallel with few cross connections. Photo 2 (..644) On the left, glossopteris leaf, prolific in the area, On the right, Umbellaphyllites ivinii, a horsetail ( arthrophytes ) with leaf sheath segments completely fused, like a little umbrella. Photo 3 & 4 (..641 & ..642) Both sides of a typical fossiliferous rock found adjacent to the coal seams, a compressed mass of various leaves and stems. This example has been mineralised (grey siderite??) , but has not completely "rusted" thru to form a red/brown limonite ?? Regards, mike.

    Horsetail. Collected from the Green River Formation. Parachute Creek Member. Douglas Pass, Colorado. Radar Dome location.

  10. Calamites Sp.

    From the album Scottish Lower Carboniferous (Visean) plants

    Calamites sp. Burdiehouse Limestone, Visean Central Belt of Scotland 333.5 myo
  11. New Horse Tail Find

    Here is a photo of a recent find in the Cahaba Valley. The photo was submitted to the University of Alabama and it was identified as another horsetail find. It's rather delicate and I have yet to see another one like it.
  12. I checked out this cliff face (dangerous) and found the best Horsetail fossils at the bottom, of course, but what amazed me was evidence that they grew through many layers. I threw water on one stem and broke some slag off so you can see it. That one is about 3' tall and goes through several layers. There are several that do it. I'm thinking the mud didn't crash in and crush things it silted in and the plant just kept growing. As an exlogger I've seen trees do this. The third photo is of a small stem about 1' tall at the base with all of the layers and joints intact. I left it as there is no way I could remove it intact. There is lots of down fossils in the rock also. Is this theory plausible?
  13. I was into a bunch of Horsetail Calamites today and kept finding these what look like slugs. I can't imagine slugs fossilize well but they have the little antenna and everything. My guess is Horsetail whorl leaves or whatever they're called. They are about 1/2 inch long. Input would be appreciated. Good thing they're dead or my wife would not be pleased.
  14. Asterophyllites equisetiformis

    From the album Plant Fossils

    Asterophyllites equisetiformis A horsetail type plant. Location: Graissessac, Herault, France Age: Stephanian, Carboniferous
