  1. Seeds?

    I have a couple of rocks that look like seeds. What do you think? Do those look like bite marks on the one on the left? Let's hear your thoughts. The one on the right was in pea gravel at a playground in Iowa, I find fossil shell fossils in pea gravel sometimes. I'm not sure where I got the other one, in central Iowa.
  2. Plant-like fragment ID?

    Found this fragment. Seems like it could be a relatively large thing. It's found with at lot of fossils of the kind in the last picture, if that helps. It's from Norway. And I guess that's all I know. If I was forced to guess, I'd say, maybe a sea anenomy??
  3. fossilized plant material?

    this was in a load of river rock here in Brookshire Texas west of houston....it looks like either some type of sea life or a fern of some kind you can see the feathery plant? drapped over the stone?...especially in the last pic....at least I hope you can got new camera but they forgot to send data cable.

  5. Crinoid fossil?

    Hey I was wondering if the stuff next to the crinoid stem is part of the plant and not just smaller stems. All I find are crinoid stems so I was wondering if this was part of the actual crinoid. Found In Cincinnati.
  6. Hold fasts?

    I believe these are holdfasts?... not real good ones but possibly if I clean them up a bit.
  7. First ever find - Sydney NSW.

    This is my first ever find on my first ever fossil hunting trip with my 4 year old son. It appears to be a nice plant imprint. I found it in loose shale on Narabeen Head, Sydney, NSW. Would be nice to get confirmation of what it is, I'm very new to this. Thanks in advance for any comments.
  8. Hi, a month back I bought these two plant fossils at a shop. But unfortunatly the guy at the store forgot to put the information card of them in the box. :/ What I can remember reading when I bought them was that they were from the Triassic era and that they were found in the Bruchsal area in Germany. But that's unfortunatly all I could remember, I don't know their exact age or species. I tried to research the exact age of the fossils found in that area or what species can be found there, but unfortunatly in my search I did not find any anwsers, only one guy with pictures of the same fossil species from the same area and age, but unfortunatly I did not get a reply back from the guy. So I was hoping one of you guys here could help me to ID the fossil. Thanks in advance! photo hosting
  9. I went for the last time this summer to my fav carboniferous sites,few nice pieces on the first site
  10. I found these today in Henderson Harbor NY along the shore. One looks like a plant of some kind and the other a cephalopods of some kind? No clue as I've never found something like this and can't find anything similar online for the plant like one. Any help would be amazing and thank you!
  11. Green River Formation plant?

    I started picking at the back of one of my fish from the green river formation. To my surprise as I picked away matrix I stumbled across a patch of black substance. I continued to follow said substance as far as it went and the result was what looks to me like some kind of plant material. My first guess was a cat tail, but I have been unable to locate the stalk. Maybe it's a piece of petrified wood? I'm stumpt by this. If anyone can help me identify whatever this is it would be much appreciated.
  12. Pennsylvanian Plant Identification

    I collected at a deposit yesterday near Locust Gap, PA and came back with several plant fossils, including this unknown bark. My initial thought is that it of calamites sp. but the gap between the striations is much larger than what I ordinarily associate with calamites. The first two photos are of the unknown bark and the third photo is of what I know to be calamites. I hope you can see the difference.
  13. Rock with plant "drawings"

    Hi! I've found that rock on a cliff near some fisherman houses by a beach here from my town. There are some vulcanic rocks on the area too. Here are some pictures of the rock. I found those "plant marks" strange. Could that be a fossil?
  14. Saturday was a nice day to hunt in the carboniferous of Northern France First site with a Lepidodendron plate,Pecopteris plate,Alethopteris frond,
  15. Small wormlike fossils in hard mineral

    I'm still brand new here, and hoping that help from the ID posts will get me moving in the right direction. We have so many fossils here in Cincinnati and the outlying regions.. Thank you for helping!
  16. lightning ridge fossil

    Hello here is some lightning ridge fossil i was told there are bone form a dinosaur but was wondering are they even bone ?
  17. Collected from the K. jason subzone within the Lower Oxford Clay of Peterborough. I thought it could potentially be a palm leaf due to the veins, though wood is prolific - a leaf would be atypical of marine deposits? GBP 1 pence piece for size reference Any help would be much appreciated. Jacob.
  18. mackenzie river find

    Discovered this about 10 km upstream from the Mackenzie River bridge on the north bank while fishing. I was thinking it was covered in plant impressions, although I do not know what era it is so I will leave that for the experts to decide. I'm always grateful to hear everyone's thoughts and opinions, as well as learn something new. Thanks
  19. I discovered this in a creek in Mud River West Virginia I have seen thousands of pods but nothing like this any idea what plant it came from?
  20. Fossilized Plant?

    Hello, I would like to know if this rock has some type of fossilized plant imprint? I found it in my yard in middle Tennessee.
  21. Alabama veggies?

    So, I'm looking to get a good week-ish long trip in before July. Can't head out to Green River as planned, so I have to stick to the southeast. I have heard quite a bit about Pennsylvanian plants from 'bama, so I've decided to take a trip there while I have the chance. Any pointers as to good localities?
  22. Home collection

    As a child, like all children, I began to get involved in dinosaurs. In a small provincial town, there was only one library with a one book about dinosaurs. Every weekend, when my peers were playing games, I spent a couple of hours with my mother in the library-drawing dinosaurs in my album, and wrote in a notebook facts about them. Time passed I grew up, but passion for paleontology has not gone anywhere. It became one of my Hobbies. My opportunities have expanded and it was possible to go to paleontological travel or to buy fossil. My first sample in making a replica. It was very interesting to do.
  23. Fossil help

    The plant. And probable egg were found at the Wichita, KS airport in a area meant to be part of landscaping. Would like possible names and age range. Will upload vertebrae on different post.
  24. I found these fossils in a single rock in Gelsenkirchen (Halde Rheinelbe) at the weekend. I believe most of them are Alethopteris, but with some of them I'm not sure (e.g. #1, 3 (tree bark?), 7) Maybe @Nimravis #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8
  25. Alethopteris leaf?

    The whole area where I found it in Bochum, Germany might be on an old dump of the local colliery here, so it might be carboniferous. Is this an Alethopteris "leaf"? 1€ coin for scale Greetings!
