  2. plant fossil

    i found this fossil plant in the Santa cruz mountains i cant identify the plant here are both sides of it.
  3. Devonian Lycopsid?

    I found this interesting fossil in the area of the Beltzville dam in Pennsylvania. Exposures in the area are generally Upper Devonian Mahantango Formation so I was surprised to see what looked to me like a lycopsid plant. The area where I spotted this find was mostly devoid of fossils but there were exposures with usual marine fauna within a few hundred yards. If anyone has any thoughts, I would appreciate it!

  5. Sphenophyllum?

    I have two different nodules from September that I think may be Sphenophyllum. Both nodules were found open, one had one half heavily covered in minerals. I did a short rinse in vinegar to clean that off.
  6. Biologic or odd concretion?

    Hello, I'm posting this for a buddy of mine. This piece was found in the French Joe Canyon area near the town of Whetstone, AZ. Any ideas if this is an actual fossil or an odd looking concretion? Thank you for any and all help.
  7. Plant fossil?

    Hi, this specimen is from Guizhou of China. It is Triassic. Any idea what kind of plant is that? There are not many plant fossils from Guizhou where you all know has a rich collection of of Keichousaurus hui and other Triassic marine reptile fossils instead.
  8. Mushroom

    Was needing help identifying this fossil. Looks like a Morrell mushroom?
  9. Fossils??

    Found Glen Rose TX area... this is very interesting to me. It has many different imprints. Could someone tell me if they are plants, insects, worms or all of the above I would really appreciate it
  10. Plant vs Molusk (or neither!)

    Found this rock in Charmouth beach (south west coast of England) a few months ago. The period is early Jurassic and is generally dated to ~190m years ago. I gave it a friend and have got into a debate as to whether it is a fossilised plant or part of a mollusk. Can anyone help resolve this argument/confirm that I am right?! Thanks, J
  11. Plant Fossil: Alethopteris Ferns?

  16. Plant or dinosaur fossil? No idea

    Not sure what this could be. Appears to be some type of fossil with cell structure. Found it walking my property in western Colorado - Morrison Formation. No preparation done besides rinsing in water and a light brushing. Full size images in link. https://postimg.cc/gallery/2c94nahdm/565295ef/ Please let me know your thoughts. Much appreciated.

  18. ID help: Illinois Fossil Plants

    Does anyone know what these are? The previous owner forgot where they were found but thinks they are from the Fox river in Illinois. Can anyone confirm this? They look like plant fossils similar to those found at Mazon creek. Thanks.
  19. Spoil find

    Found this on Monday in a British Coal Measures pit spoil in Derbyshire UK , I think it might be a Calamostachys but i would like to know what you think it might be. Cheers John
  20. Insect Plant Fish or ...?

    Greetings, everyone. I spent the other day on the east side of Ventura County breaking open sedimentary rocks. I'm not experienced enough with that sort of material to positively ID it but I think it was siltstone. There was a leaf and something else on both sides of one of the rocks. I've been having a hard time figuring out what the "something else" is. It measures about 35 by 14 millimeters. I took a few pictures of both sides under different lighting conditions to help bring out some of the finer details. It comes from the Modelo Formation (Miocene). Thanks ahead of time for any help in figuring out what it is. Here are pictures of the first side: Some pictures of the second side:
  21. Mystery fossil discs

    Hello again. I have several of these strange fossil discs. I cannot find tags for them in the boxes of minerals and fossils recently acquired. Possibly some sort of jellyfish? sea sponge? Any help with ID is of course always appreciated!
  22. Possible fossil find

    As a newbie first of all Hello everybody Today I was hiking and found an interesting rock along side the old mine road. Knowing that this type of rock may contain crystals I had it split open. It was quite a big rock, but the crystals were so tiny I could hardly see them...so anyway I was about to dispose of it when I noticed something unusual. To me it looks like a piece of a small perforated skin...but to be honest I have no clue what it might be... Any thoughts?
  23. carboniferous, plant, coal,

    Hello Fossil Fans, I found this recently at a disused coal pit in Kent (Thanet). I believe it to be carboniferous plant material. Can anyone be more specific? Also because of the nature of the coal it is very crumbly so any advice on preservation would be welcome.
