  1. 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?
  2. Saturday was a nice day to hunt in the carboniferous of Northern France First site with a Lepidodendron plate,Pecopteris plate,Alethopteris frond,
  3. 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!
  4. 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 ?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. Your best guess at these please!

    we found these plant stem looking fossils at the beach in sydney australia. any idea as to their age and plant type would be really cool and the kids would love it! thanks Ben
  15. Another strange fossil...

    Another weird one.
  16. Strange Fossil...

    Would love to hear what people think this is.
  17. Plant fossil from Germany?

    Hi folks, I found this in the Bavarian pre-Alps, and thought it might be a fossil, but I'm no expert. Your thoughts?
  18. West Virginia fossils

    While backpacking in the Cranberry Wilderness I found this soccer size rock with what appears to be carbonized plant material encased in a sandstone matrix. Can anyone shed further light on this specimen? Thank you
  19. Possible plant like fossil?

    I found this little rock among the river rock that's used as decoration at work. Just over 1.5" long by 1" tall & 3/8" at its thickest. The rocks are from a local quarry here in Central Washington State. It seems familiar, but I cant quite place it. The 3rd picture (bottom) show's it growing through the rock. Any idea's?
  20. Leaf fossil from Svalbard

    Hi all, would appreciate some help identifying these plants from Svalbard, near Longyearbyen. To my understanding they are from a rock layer about 40 million years old. Thanks, Jay #1
  21. Archaeopteris halliana

    Hey everyone, Does anyone know the approximate age and formation that Archaeopteris halliana comes from in Devonian Youngsville, NY?
  22. Over the winter I was freezing and thawing nodules found in reclaimed coal mine spoils from the Pennsylvanian Shelburn Formation, Busseron Sandstone from Vigo County Indiana. These contain flora and rare fauna similar to the Braidwood Biota from Mazon Creek. This nodule split off a tiny bit on one end and I set aside for further investigation after a quick glance revealed an interesting pattern. Then I forgot about until I was recently unpacking from a move, and re-examined it under magnification. Unfortunately, the piece that split off the end was lost, so I only have the one side, but it shows a small rectangular patch of texture, about 10 mm wide. The piece preserved shows folds and wrinkles, as well as what looks like a tear in the center, and looking under magnification reveals the entire piece is covered with tiny pebbly bumps. My first assumption would be plant material, but it doesn't match the texture of any of the other plants I have found at this site. A much less likely option would be a patch of skin from some sort of animal or egg casing. I would like to get it under greater magnification and will try to find an expert to look at it, but I wanted to put the best pictures I was able to take here for y'all's thoughts. Thanks!
  23. Really nice plant fossil needs IDing

    My friend recently kindly helped me buy a really cool plant fossil, the slate is around 24 cm in length and is extremely heavy and solid. There are multiple other leaves in the slate, I have no clue where it is from or what species of plant it is. Is it a kind of Palm plant? All information would be helpful. Regards, indominus rex
  24. Plant fossil?

    I picked up this cool fossil while walking back. I’m guessing it’s a plant fossil? Found at saltwick bay, Yorkshire.
  25. Carbon Film Plant/Arthopod?

    Does anyone know what this fossil is? It might be a pseudo fossil. It was found in Liberty, MO, USA. Pennsylvanian. Fossils found near it include crinoids, shells, and other marine life.
