  1. Three glossopteris leaves

    I found this fossil in Newcastle, Australia. I believe it is three glossopteris leaves and some fragmenary material. Is this correct?
  2. Leaf or shell?

    A friend picked up a fossil on the beach at Fossil Island, Alaska about 15 years ago. He's always thought it was a leaf, but I think it looks more like a shell.
  3. Coal shale Pennsylvania fossil

    Hello and thank you for your input. This slab is 20" x 15" and has a folded, what I believe to be a sigillaria leaf that is about 30" long. I am not sure though? I have color changed one of the photos so you can see the specimen in the center.
  4. Amber inclusion ID please

    Hi guys, 3mm long in Baltic amber. Was wondering if this was a seed or a leaf? Best images I can do I'm afraid. @Amber Man
  5. My family visit Stonerose and dig for a day. We have a great time. Here is what we found. The bug is given to us by a guy there. A partial pine cone A partial flower Swing seed leaves redwood leaf and a fly
  6. Dear all, I have many duplicates in my collection and I would like to exchange them with other fossils from around the world. I'm interested in any kind of fossils, (dinosaur) teeth in particular. #1 This should be a piece of echinoid. A gift from a friend, it may have been found in Italy. #2 Fossil wood slice (probably from USA). #3 and #4 Pectinids from Favignana, Sicilia, Italy. #5 Unknown piece of marine fossil from Sorrento (Amalfi Coast), Italy.
  7. These are some fossil glossopteris leaves from different beaches around the Newcastle area. The rocks they are found in tend to be very hard to break, but yield lovely fossils. Good luck!
  8. Is it a leaf?

    Here's another one from Cincinnati, do you think this is plant matter? Possibly a leaf? Thank you!
  9. This leaf was found in the same location as glossopteris leaves. Is this anything different?
  10. Leaf fossil?

    Found this leaf looking rock a couple weeks ago in central Washington State. At least it looks like a leaf to me, right down to the center part. Never seen a rock that looked fibrous or cellular like this. Measurements are 4cm long x 3.5cm wide x 1.5cm thick at its thickest. Any ideas?
  11. Leaf fossil from Svalbard

    Hi all, would appreciate some help identifying these plants from Svalbard, near Longyearbyen. To my understanding they are from a rock layer about 40 million years old. Thanks, Jay #1
  12. Leaf or Feather

    Not teal sure here. My money is on leaf. Can i get help this.
  13. A few GRF leaves

    A few months ago I bought something like 12 flats of leaves that were found years ago, Parachute Creek member of the Green River Formation, near Bonanza, Utah. I just started working through identifying them, which is going to be a bit of a process to say the least. First question: is there a PDF of MacGinitie? I have a list of the Parachute Creek species from his work, but I could use more specific descriptions of the species (if there are any plates that would help a lot too). In the mean time, here are a few of the more interesting ones from the group I was hoping to get some help with while I get working on the others (more duplication there, so once I figure out the ID's my pile should decrease quickly). First up, I think this is the tip of a Equisetum winchesteri, hoping for verification there. Next, an interesting branch with a bud? Any ideas on species? This is another Equisetum winchesteri, any ideas on the branch and leaves that are also on the plate? This seems to be a sort of clinging vine, there are some nice tendrils attached. Any idea on species, and if the leaves belong to the vine? The leaves appear to be the same species and the stems are both pointed towards the vine, which would lead me to believe the go together. Last up, one more group of leaves. Any help would be great, thank you! Nathan
  14. Leaf fossil ID request

    This was one of the few fossils we were able to bring home from our hunt.... Most were wood pieces of unknown variety.... really not enough detail to tell, I guess. BUT - This one stood out for me. Seems to be a large leaf! Can someone tell me what kind? I have never encountered one QUITE like this one... this large. Thank you for looking!
  15. Simply rock or leaf?

    Hi, i don't know id it's only a rock or a leaf. Someone have one idea. Found by my son on river of the Ionian Sea in the Mediterranean, south of Italy.. maybe it's only a suggestion.. every opinion is appreciated.. thanks
  16. What kind of leaf?

    Can anybody tell me what kind of species is this? I found it in a Marl stone quarry of Popovac,Serbia. Maybe possible Myrica lignatum?
  17. Turning over an old leaf

    http://tmgb.museucienciesjournals.cat/files/TMGB_22_2016_pp_57-100_Marmi.pdf Visually impressive (re)study* of a well-known European leaf macrofossil site. About 5,1 Mb and RECOMMENDED!!!!! *the first one(thesis,2002) by Vicente Castells is in Catalan edit:additional info on the locality(Villalba Breve/Marmi et al,2015)
  18. Ginkgo leaf or something else?

    I am wondering if this is a Ginkgo leaf or something else? Looks like a Mazon Creek fossil to me.
  19. Papers/books for GRF insect and leaf ID

    Anyone know of some good papers or books for identifying the species on GRF leaves? Mainly looking for leaf info, but insect info is welcome too. Nathan
  20. Leaf part in burmite

    Hi Is this leaf piece?
  21. Douglass Pass Leaf

    I collected this at Douglas Pass last year. Can anyone identify it? I was thinking it was Lygodium, but seeing other images of Lygodium I am now not at all sure and am thinking maybe Sapindus? Obviously I am not great on the plant IDs I am not hiving great luck in finding a good paper to identify flora from this site. I was really hoping for something like the Daniel Axlerod papers which are very comprehensive. I do have one called "Fossils from the Green River Formation" by Dayvault and another called " Common Plant Fossils from the Green River Formation at Douglas Pass, Colorado and Bonanza, Utah" by Johnson & Plumb. Both good, but short. "The Lost World of Fossil Lake" is also a good book that has helped me some. Anyone have any other good suggestions?
  22. Eocene Leaf ID Help

    Today I was going through some drawers and came across this leaf fossil that I acquired from a friend about 20 years ago. It was labeled Elm Leaf Eocene with not location. I am even wondering if this is an Elm leaf. Does anyone recognize this Fossil and location?
  23. Hi all, On a recent trip to the seaside cliffs of Port Waikato, NZ, I found this little beauty amongst the indistinguishable fossilised plant matter that is common along the beach. Does anyone have an idea of what it might be? According to geological maps, the area that I found this in was a part of the Apotu group (Late Jurassic), although could of also been from the nearby Huriwai group. Cheers, TJ
  24. Leaf Fossil ID

    Hello, I found a fossil Around Picton in NSW Australia and Im wondering if anyone can help identify what species of plant this could possibly be? Thanks, Warwick.
  25. Plant leaf ? or ? ? ?

    Greetings again friends. This was found in the same spot as most of the other recent finds here. Eastern WV, Mahantango fm., Devonian as usual. This looks like a plant leaf but is very deeply textured, more-so than I would expect for a leaf this small and under the evident pressures. I thought maybe a pygidium but the ridges / veins / valleys do not exhibit the symmetry I'd expect for a trilobite. Does it look familiar to any of you ? A small remnant, but that is all I recovered. As always, Thanks much ! Regards,
