  1. I am brand new to fossils and this forum.. and just dug a large boulder up in the garden which is full of bedrock like this. Is this a leaf?
  2. Green river material

    Hello everyone I'm currently cataloguing my fossil collection and have came across some green river fossils with no real ID. I would greatly appreciate any advice from the green river buffs out. First up are some insects. Both labeled as from the Parachute creek member in Garfield County. Size is around 1cm each.
  3. Fish scale from Ras al Khaimah?

    Hello, I found this fossil a while ago on a trip to Ras al Khaimah (an Emirate/state in the United Arab Emirates). It looks a bit worn, but it is still interesting. It has some strange patterns on it, and I am wondering if it could be a fish scale. I think the time period it's from is Cretaceous, but I am not very sure.
  4. Thrift store fossil leaf

    Hey all, Picked this up as a gift for my girlfriend's brother. Today's his birthday and I figured I'd try and start his fossil collection... I asked the shopowner for details but she said her mother must have received this one something like 50 years ago. Dead end. If anybody has any guesses I'd love to be able to tell him what he now owns! Thank you guys so much!
  5. Here's a part counterpart of a leaf I split from the shales of the Allenby Formation at a road cut north west of Princeton, BC. This is the main collection site along the road that runs along the eastern shore of the Tullameen River. Has anybody seen a similar leaf and been able to identify it from Paleocene or Eocene deposits? The veins remind me of Tsukada sp. but this leaf is much narrower. I've also considered a species of Betula (Beech) but again either the leaves are too wide or the serrated edges are larger than what's indicated on this leaf. I'm down to a species of Alnus (Alder) but still can't nail it down. Being a vertebrate guy I need a little help here please.

    A very nice and very beautiful fossil leaf from the Green River Formation. Measures almost 9 inches!
  10. Calling Palebotanists!

    Ya know, I'm great at plant identification if it's currently growing in my region. Dive back to the Paleozoic and I can tell Calamites from Cordaites, but that's about my limit without a book in hand. So far, I've had 8 and I still don't know what this is! I'm pondering the frond-like object running diagonally across the center of the picture. It looks like a fruiting body from Cordaites, but it lacks the sporophyll. It also resembles Corynepteris angustissima, but the only illustration I can find lacks sufficient detail. This came from a mid-late Pennsylvanian Lewellyn Formation exposure in Columbia County, PA. It's about 4 inches (10cm) long.
  11. Leaf in Amber

    Many things get stuck in sap and then turn into amber including leaves. If one were to sand it down, break it, cut it, etc and get the leaf out would it feel like a normal leaf or just crumble because it is 10s of millions of years old? I don't have a leaf in amber and I'm not planning on doing this just curious. And if there was a seed could it be planted and sprout a tree?
  12. 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.
  13. Plants and Insects From Florissant 2

    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 difficult to narrow it down to a species but just knowing what kind of bug it is would help. Thank you.
  14. 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.
  15. I was encouraged to share this in the forum so here it goes. I was given a pile of "amber" and two pieces that may or may not (most likely not) have something inside. After the "amber" failed the saltwater float test it was proposed that I may have copal, NOT amber. I tried my best to take as clear of pictures as my camera phone would allow. The first piece supposedly it has a "bug or stick or something" inside. The copal, if it really is copal, does not appear very clear, even with a light source behind it. The second piece is a little more transparent when the light shines through with the exception of the mysterious dark object lurking on the middle. (queue the spooky music!) Personally I think that both of these may just be dirt that accumulated in a crack when the copal was forming a long ago but this has apparently been a topic of hot debate. So if ya'll got any opinions on the matter, I'd love to hear them...or if you don't want to share your opinions, just tell me that I've discovered some weird new sub-species of dinosaur and I'll be happy with that. lol
  16. Fairy Wasp

    Finally found a bug, completely by accident, that I could identify. I was looking at a piece of burmite with part of a leaf present when I noticed a tiny little insect just under the leaf. Using my 10 x loupe, it was fairly tiny, so I checked it with my dino-lite. It was what appeared to be a tiny wasp like critter. So after working the backside of the piece down a bit (not wanting to destroy the leaf) I got these views. Pic 1 is at 50 x, pics 2-4 are at 200 x with #4 being cropped & enlarged from 3. A tiny, short lived parasitic wasp that has (still exists today) odd shaped wings with a fringe on them. Pic 1 also shows the leaf pattern from the underside with possible patches of fungus present. Pic 4 was cropped & enlarged to show the delicate fringe on the wings a little better. The entire bug is slightly less than 1 mm long as near as I can tell.

  20. Leaf-like Fossil

    Hello, I found this object a many years ago. It was the first fossil that I remember finding. The rock in my area (Hamilton, NJ) is mostly from the Jurassic and Cretaceous, but there is a small section of Cambrian rock and a lot of glacial deposits. I found it on a path in a park, so it could have been brought there by the park managers. It looks like a leaf to me but I could be wrong. It also has a small indent at the bottom. I hope that you can identify it. Thank you in advance.
  21. Any ideas on this?

    Any ideas on this?
  22. Fossil plant leaves?

    Found these in Pennsylvanian winterset limestone. I think there is a leaf in this next to a branch/limb/trunk impression in the first images, then maybe a leaf in the second-a different species or just a water deposit? At the base of that is plant debris? Any help, as always, appreciated!... Bone
  23. San Diego fossil plants

    Hey everyone pretty new here. My wife and I were at the beach collecting shells and I noticed some erosion on the cliffs and found these in the ruble. I think these are fossil plants. Looks to me like a leaf and fern? I’d love some help putting a name to these if possible. USA, California, San Diego, Sunset Cliffs on the beach
  24. Miocene leaf from Korea

    This leaf has burnt a hole in my brain for years. Recently when I looked I found a paper which is either the same location this leaf is from, or a very similar one. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12303-017-0004-x It lists species found as: Equisetum sp. (rhizome) Sorbus sp. Ulmus sp. Fagus antipofi Heer Pterocarya sp. Alnus arasensis Huzioka Alnus sp. (infructescence) Populus sp. Salixsp. Decodon sp. Acer sp. cf. A. nordenskioeldi Nathorts Acer sp. cf. A. rotundatum Huzioka 3 Acer sp. (samara) “Alangium” aequalifolium (Goeppert) Kryshtofovich et Borsuk Fraxinus sp. Dicotylophyllum sp. Monocotylophyllum sp. Unfortunately even with this I am unable to match this leaf! Thanks for any help
  25. Teacher's Fossil ID

    Hey everyone, today I was speaking with a teacher this afternoon at school and being the well known fossil enthusiast that I am, she brought up that she had found some plant fossils on her in-laws ranch in Colorado. She told me that the ranch was northwest of Denver but could not remember what town or county specifically. When I saw it, I thought it could be from the Cretaceous period Dakota Sandstone as I believe that it extends into Colorado, however I could certainly be wrong and it could be younger or older. I want to know what you all think. If I need more photos and want me to try to get more details let me know.
