  1. Plant or animal?

    Is this plant or shell?
  2. Hi all, Was hoping someone here might know what type of plant material this is. I'm pretty sure it is from the Wianamatta Group and was found while bushwalking in the Hornsby district of Sydney. I'm thinking it may be a form of equisetum stem? Thanks, Kind regards, Roy
  3. Plant material?

    This is obviously not a seed fern fossil, but the "fossil guy" at the flea market across the river in Jersey told me that it is a fern. My understanding was that it is petrified plant material, a petrified fern. I'm not confident in his identification as he, I now know, missed several identifiable pieces (crinoid columnals and a chunk of perfect rose quartz, for example) or simply wasn't as into looking as he said he was. So, I need another ID! Again, as usual, it was found under the bridge behind my house in Bucks County, PA along the creek not far from the Delaware river.
  4. Carboniferous tree fern

    Two days ago I bought this nice fossil for a very convenient price at a local shop. Unfortunately, the seller could not remember key informations about this specimen, but he told me that it probably was Pecopteris and came from Germany. I want to identify it for a proper display alongside my other Carboniferous fossils, but I need again some help from a more experienced collector. In my opinion it is very similar, if not identical, to an other Acitheca (Pecopteris) polymorpha specimen I previously identified on an old topic thanks to this wonderful community. It may be the same plant, but I'm not sure. I am also skeptical about its German origin, is it reliable? Here is the upper side of the fossil: Pinnules detail from the other side (not exceptional quality, but I tried to make them more clear with a flashlight) Thanks in advance for your help!
  5. sponge/coral/sea plant

    2 photos of this. is 2.5 cm tall, in the area which is 3-5million years range i found also a lot of the 3rd photo, oysters and other fossillized stuff.
  6. Skin?

    Had to move 4300 lbs of landscaping rock and came acrossed this. No idea where the rock originally came from. They called it 'red cedar rock' . Any help is appreciated
  7. 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
  8. Nice weather again ,
  9. Another plant or maybe an insect?

    This one has the black coloring of some of my plant fossils but the shape suggests an insect to me. Could just be my imagination. Any suggestions?
  10. Twigs and leaves?

    I've noticed some black material in some of my findings. Is this plant material, maybe pieces of twigs or wood? I'm not sure if the bottom picture contains a small leaf or just has dirt impersonating a leaf.
