  2. branched plant stuff

    we've aften seen this buckhorn shape stuff a lot . cannot help asking what it might be, branch or root of some genus. it is Later-Carboniferous-Early Permian stratum. the scale is cm-mm.
  3. Bone, tube, or plant?

    I found these at an Oriskany Sandstone exposure in Blair County Pennsylvania that is normally overgrown. There was abundant crinoid & shell material around. There is no internal structure, and the larger specimen seems to show some faint longitudinal striations. ID suggestions appreciated ad. I was thinking Mud tube, filled burrow, cephalopod /shell cast, or plant bits. I couldn't find any similar pictures in my resources.
  4. Plant Fossil

    I went on my first fossil trip today. Firstly, I'd like to make sure this is actually a fossil; I spoke to someone experienced who mentioned it's probably a plant fossil. As for the ID itself. It's 8 cm x 3 cm x 1 cm. It was found in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, by the Humber River near Old Mill Station. I would appreciate any help confirming if this is a fossil, and maybe what it is. Thank you!
  5. Plant or animal ID request

    I purchased a clump of rocks from a seller stating "rocks from NY fossil beds". I prepped the "rocks" and found some trilobite pieces and this. Is this a plant or animal?

    found some bizaare leaves in the YP formation(early Mid-Jurrasic or late Early-Juranssic ) of the west mountains in Beijing China. looks like palms. Any clues? the finest mark in pic is 1mm.
  8. Plant leaf ID request

    Good evening folks. I have an unidentified fossil plant from Yunnan (suspect), China and is lacking any additional information. The plant leaf/stem section is 30mm wide x 35mm tall. Hoping someone in TFF knows what it is.
  9. My great grandfather majorly shaped who I am today by getting me introduced to biology, paleontology, and earth sciences at a young age. He left me with many fossils that he had gone out and found himself, picking about in the Mazon Creek Formation of the Carboniferous. Among the ferns and leaves I had found this one, it looks a lot like a negative impression of an invert to me, although I could also see it being a leaf impression. I'm pretty immature so I'd appreciate any help, thank you
  10. some more pennsylvanian plant

    Here are more stuff from the pennsylvanian shale near beijing, what calamites, Neuropteris, Cordates are abandant. I have no clue what they might be. No scales are seen.

    Betteshanger a Carboniferous area

    From top to bottom it is 5.5 cm. Leaf size about 2-3 cm depending on which you’re looking at. Area is Betteshanger, a Carboniferous area
  14. I went in my fav sites to look after new carboniferous plants
  15. Can somebody tell me what this matrix is

    Can someone tell me what that rock that contains these plants is. Ash maybe? its a shale type material almost flint it feels like it was found in south central WV in Lincoln county it comes from the pennsylvanian era i believe.
  16. Plant, animal

    Hi I. New here. I’ve been collecting for about 5 months in central Texas. I found something that I’ve not come across before. It looks like something from a palm like plant but it could be an animal... it’s 3.4inches long . Thank You.
  17. Unknown Fossil

    Found at a antique store near Deadwood, SD
  18. Plant fossil???

    I’ve found other fern/plant fossils in this area. Is this one as well? If so, what’s on it? I have others to show as well. Found in Ohio in a river, north central area. Thanks for all information!

  20. What is this? Myrtle Beach find

    No idea. Kind of reminds me of a sea urchin, but not quite. Also reminds me of the kind of "hat" an acorn wears. It's got a little peak to it. Animal? Plant? (Side view and better top view added below in a post.)
  21. Is it plant debris?

    Is it plant debris?
  22. Plant fossil

    What plant it could be?
  23. Help with ID please!!

    I found this today at Walton-on-the-Naze, UK. It’s pretty small and I’m really struggling with identifying it. Might be something cool but maybe not even a fossil? It was found on the beach and is likely from the London clay (Eocene - Ypresian stage). It’s really common to find plant matter in this, I came away with loads of fossilised wood. So I’m thinking possibly some sort of plant fossil? Maybe a seed or something? Was also thinking it might be a coprolite or something like that but it’s fairly uniform in shape. It’s a little damaged and shows what seems to be clay infilling.
  24. My youngest son found this leaf last year and its been sittin im my garage for awhile. I had my middle son trim up the rock and ready for me to do my majic. Found in Colorado, Green River Formation, Eocene RB With just some careful brushing with some cut Glyptal you can see how the left side is much better now. I did just a tad bit of scribing to expose the tips and stems of the two little leafs and then some more careful brushing with my glyptal and WA LAAA!!!
