  1. From the album Fossil Plants

    A very nice and very beautiful fossil leaf from the Green River Formation. Measures almost 9 inches!
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. Neuropteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

    One of my favorite finds comes in at roughly 2.8cm and has two beautiful leaves next to each other!
  10. Neuropteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

    Large Leaf with a few smaller leaf imprints from Alethopteris, sp
  11. Cyclopteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

  12. 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.
  13. Any ideas on this?

    Any ideas on this?
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. From the album Plants

    oak leaf, (Quercus). Pléistocène Re (Val Vigezzo) Italy
  19. Oligocène Leaf ID

    I received this leaf,positive and negative ;10 cm,from the Oligocene of St Bauzille,south of France it's Diatomine rock,what could it be?
  20. Leaf fossil And fish fossil I’d

    Honestly don’t know too much about them. My recently deceased grandfather wanted me to have them. I know some of them are seed fern fossils and honestly don’t know the rest
  21. On my recent trip north, I was fortunate to be able to stop in Wax, Kentucky to look for blastoids. It was very hot and I had only about an hour to look. I didn't find any. But found some other fossils that I am happy to have. All that is left of one brachiapod is barely an outline...looking somewhat like a ponderosa and about the same size. Sorry, I didn't get a scale into any of these. But the nicest part of that fossil are the very typical beekites...sodalite pseudomorphs, I think they are called. They flouresce under black light and are classics. The little oval fossil looks to me all the world like a leaf. Could that even be possible. I know is is not current, because it fell out from the layers of a piece of shale I split at home. I don't know what the formation is at Wax, and would love someone's information about it. And lastly, one of my favorites, just form its shape is something I think belongs to the graptiloid family, though I am not sure. I am looking forward to getting them all cleaned a bit better.
  22. Fossil Leaf ID Needed

    Thinking this may be a insect chewed on Bursera inaequalate ralis, any thoughts. Green River Formation.
  23. Fossil Leaf ID Needed

    Looking to ID this Green River fossil leaf if anyone has an ideas?
  24. Leaf

    This was found by a friend near Muskogee Oklahoma. The area is Pennsylvanian. Any help on identification would be appreciated.
  25. I set my 8 year old to work with a rubber mallet and old screwdriver on a landscape boulder in a SE Seattle neighborhood where the bedrock is the Blakeley formation, and where the homeowner was pretty sure their boulders were local bedrock. This was his favorite find, I said it looks like a bit of leaf/seed pod/wood to me. Anyone have thoughts about what it is? It measures almost exactly 1.0 cm x 0.5 cm.
