  1. What could this be?

    I’ve just found this on my property in upstate Rhode Island, and I’ve never found fossils here before. My first opinion was that it was a graptolite but I’m not sure what it could be, the host rock is full of these things
  2. Hi, I've had this for some time and it looks very much like a plant, or perhaps I'm just imagining things. It's from the Dyrham formation, which is Pliensbachian I believe. The split rock measures 2.8 cm across and 3.9cm in length. The picture in this would look like the stem, and I'll post a picture on the possible 'leaves' in a second. Thanks
  3. Fern Fossil New Mexico?

    It is from New Mexico, likely from Pennsylvanian formations. Is it a fern?
  4. What's that - plant or animal?

    My little son ist asking. It's limestone or flint. I'm not sure. Found at the beach, Baltic Sea. Plant or animal (or else)? Thank you!

  6. Any ideas as to what this is?

    I’m not sure what this is, if anything it’s about 7/8 of an inch long. I’m not even sure if it is a fossil, or just maybe a torn leaf.
  7. I went yesterday for my last carboniferous hunt summer hunt,sometimes sun but few rain also,with few nice finds Few sphenophyllum A very nice 3d Stigmaria with high details A nice Alethopteris time to climb a little
  8. Petrified plant or just rock?

    My wife found this along the Brazos River. There are white lines that go through the rock from one side to the other. Interestingly, some of the white lines have black lines within them. Any ideas what this is?
  9. can anyone confirm this a plant fossil

    Hi, can anyone help with an identification on this possible fossil plant from Aust, bristol uk. Approx 4-5 cm long.
  10. I was encouraged to share this in the forum so here it goes. I was given a pile of "amber" and two pieces that may or may not (most likely not) have something inside. After the "amber" failed the saltwater float test it was proposed that I may have copal, NOT amber. I tried my best to take as clear of pictures as my camera phone would allow. The first piece supposedly it has a "bug or stick or something" inside. The copal, if it really is copal, does not appear very clear, even with a light source behind it. The second piece is a little more transparent when the light shines through with the exception of the mysterious dark object lurking on the middle. (queue the spooky music!) Personally I think that both of these may just be dirt that accumulated in a crack when the copal was forming a long ago but this has apparently been a topic of hot debate. So if ya'll got any opinions on the matter, I'd love to hear them...or if you don't want to share your opinions, just tell me that I've discovered some weird new sub-species of dinosaur and I'll be happy with that. lol
  11. It's definitely a..thing?

    Look guys I have a... well its definitely a something? Is it a plant, the top of a crinoid, a broken tooth, a really tiny volcano??? No idea. And as a bonus I have no idea where it came from either. It was given to me ages when I was a kid. So if you've got any ideas on what the heck it might be, I'd love to hear 'em! Thanks!
  12. Hello! and I hope you are having a wonderful afternoon! I found these two plant fossils and was unsure to what they might actually be. They look a lot like modern seeds but I know I am not always informed and I keep having a slight suspicion they could be apart of some other plant material! If anyone could help identify and confirm these plant fossils I would be very grateful! I have found leaves from Neuropteris sp , Cyclopteris sp, and a few other plant species in these types of limestone! Info that I could gather: Location: Missouri Time period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Possibly Upper Winterset Limestone Specimen #1: Two halves of one seed? (roughly 9mm) Other half: Specimen #2: Larger and wider seed? (roughly 3mm) I unfortunately do not have the other half to this one!
  13. Neuropteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

  14. Cyclopteris Sp.

    From the album Missouri Plant Fossils

    The leaf section of the specimen is 3.6cm wide and length is 3.3cm long!
  15. Is this a fern?

    Found this back in April on a mountain, still amazed by the detail. Not sure what species it is, the area is mostly Carboniferous.
  16. Hello! I have found a few ferns at a road-cut and was wondering if anyone could identify these ferns below! I have found trilobites (small), Neuropteris fern leaves, many Calamites, and ocean invertebrates in the area. I was very lucky to find these plant fossils as they appear to be relatively uncommon in the road cut area! Specimen #1: I found this lovely leaf with a few imprints of fern fossil right next to it! (3.5cm) Specimen #2: A lovely... Ginkgo? I had posted this previously on a different website and noted it looked like a Gingko. I was not sure as the leaf has a more rounded edge and not a split edge like the Ginkgo I saw online Nevertheless it could be a squished Ginkgo or a related species! Specimen #3: A lovely leaf and one of my largest that I was able to find (5.3cm) Specimen #4: A beautiful fern fossil leaf (3.4cm) Some general information I was able to gather from the area! Time period: Pennsylvanian Location: Missouri Formation: Upper Winterset Limestone Thanks to Missourian For the possible Formation ID
  17. What could this be?

    I found this fossil in the north attleboro part of the rhode island formation, and I need help with an ID. It’s just shy of an inch in length.
  18. Found on beach at Seaham

    Hello and thanks for letting me join ,i live in Yorkshires have access to some very nice areas for collecting .My wife and i collect seaglass and go to Seaham near Sunderland quite often .We comb the beach and are mainly focused on the beach area for tiny pieces of glass ,however to anyone who knows this area it has a lot of stones and rocks ,at the hide tide/seawall area ,the rocks can be 7/8 feet deep and that's for very long lengh. So that's the area ,and occasionally i do find an interesting pebble ,but generally nothing Fossil wise . The enclosed pictures are of a Fossil i found a while ago and i really don't know what it is ,as any search for Fossil's from this area never brings anything up that is similar ,i personally have never seen another like it ever .I do appreciate it is more than likely nothing unusual as such ......maybe not a fossil at all ,just a pebble ...but that then asks the question ...why have i never seen one like it anywhere along that area...look forward to enlightenment ,many thanks .Steve.
  19. Pennsylvanian fossil, any ideas?

    This fossil was found in north attleboro, part of the Rhode Island formation, and the large leaf in the center is around an inch and a half.
  20. Llewellyn Formation Plant ID

    Hello everyone, All of these were found in St. Claire, PA. Llewellyn Formation. Any idea what they are? #1. Plant leaf of some sort? #2. Scaley looking fossil?
  21. Any idea what this is?

    This fossil was found in north attleboro, part of the Rhode Island formation and the largest one is 6 inches in length.
  22. Any idea what this is?

    Any idea what this plant fossil is? It was found in North Attleboro as part of the Rhode Island formation. It’s pennsylvanian in age and just shy of an inch and a half.
  23. These were found east of Burns, Oregon in a road cut. I thought maybe redwood but the structure is vertical not horizontal. Can anyone tell me the name of my little guys? Thanks! Nyla

  25. A friend has an odd fossil that appears to be a fruit. It's from a Miocene coal deposit in Germany. The tag says Magnoliaspermum sp. There doesn't seem to be much about this genus on the web though I did find a reference to a species, M. geinitzii. Is it a form genus for fruits that may be associated with magnolias or is it an extinct genus related to magnolias or something else? I don't know a lot about fossil plants other than the general history and I don't have a reference for it. The formation is given as Braunkohle Lignite but "Braunkohle" is the German word for lignite so I think there's a misunderstanding on that one. Jess
