  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. From the album Plants

    oak leaf, (Quercus). Pléistocène Re (Val Vigezzo) Italy
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. Fossil Leaf ID Needed

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

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

    This was found by a friend near Muskogee Oklahoma. The area is Pennsylvanian. Any help on identification would be appreciated.
  10. 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.
  11. Three glossopteris leaves

    I found this fossil in Newcastle, Australia. I believe it is three glossopteris leaves and some fragmenary material. Is this correct?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. Is it a leaf?

    Here's another one from Cincinnati, do you think this is plant matter? Possibly a leaf? Thank you!
  19. This leaf was found in the same location as glossopteris leaves. Is this anything different?
  20. 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?
  21. 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
  22. Leaf or Feather

    Not teal sure here. My money is on leaf. Can i get help this.
  23. 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
  24. 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!
