  1. I found this little fern at the North Attleboro fossil site, and I cannot seem to put an ID on it. The leaves seem to be confluent, so i’m thinking maybe a juvenile Alethopteris or some other Pteridospermatophyte
  2. For the last 4 years I have been collecting plant fossils from sites in East Central Illinois. These fossils were all brought to the surface by underground coal mining in the first half of the 20th century. Most of the spoil piles in the area have been graded or flattened out, but a few still remain, standing tall above the flatland. One particular pile is, I believe, the source of most or all of the fossils I find. The shale that makes up the spoil has been fired by the internal heat of the pile, resulting in the hard, reddish material known as "red dog". This shale i
  3. Paleocene plants in Central North Dakota are among the first fossils I've collected. Despite this I haven't given them the attention they are due lately. The preservation is very nice but due to various reasons they've taken a back seat to other outcrops in the state like the Cretaceous ones and I haven't thought about them for awhile. I am now reorganizing some of my Paleocene collection and a spark was reignited in me. I've decided to post some of the best examples here as a result. Come spring hopefully I can collect in additional Fort Union sites. The terrestrial Paleocene depo
  4. Happy holidays everybody!!!! finally after Christmas day, I went to look for fossils. I have to wait some hours (ice on the road), but it was worth It. The fossilfield was covered of sun light, so the rocks has covered with ice (¿Do you remember Jack Nicholson in The Shining? something like that), so I took carefully the specimens to home. Not too much time looking for, but at least I found some interesting plants. I hope you like it
  5. Taking advantage of my time spent home, I finally got a couple of glass display cases to showcase fossil specimens from my collection. Finding ones that were affordable and blended with the style of our home, was challenge, and I took my time choosing. Despite a bit of criticism I receive from some of my fossil collecting friends, I am a generalist collector who doesn't specialize in anything. Having said that, my collection does feature some rare faunas; Devonian and Cretaceous bivalves, Lower and Middle Devonian brachiopods and gastropods, Cretaceous vertebrates, etc. The focus is largely on

  8. Hi all Im trying to label the morphological parts of a Lepidodendron stem in thin section for my course. I have found a half decent resource online BUT it is unreadable due to the resolution. I was wondering if anyone was confident enough to clear up the labelling lines for me? pic attached. cheers
  9. My youngest son had to go to Denver to pick up a piece of equipment for his business, and like me, he decided to go the round about way and do some fossil hunting along the way. Him and his buddy went to Bonanza and spent 3 days looking and digging around. It took them awhile, he said they didnt find much of anything the first day, just wasting time digging holes, but then ran into a layer that had some decent stuff in it and kept following that layer for about 30 or 40 feet. They also found some insects and one very cool flower. I wish I took a photo of that. I will post more as i ge
  10. I recently found several fossil plant impressions inside nodules from Indiana coal mine spoil dumps. It is Pennsylvanian age approximately 300 mya. Please help identify the specimens to genus, and species if possible. Thanks!

    PALAEOBOTANY HELP

    Hi all I was wondering if anyone knew of any good sources- online or otherwise- for pictures (HD would be amazing) of plant fossils in various forms of preservation i.e. compression, cast/mould, permineralisation etc. Any help much appreciated!

  13. Yesterday (Saturday, Aug. 22nd), I went fossil hunting in Ellsworth County, Kansas again for elusive Dakota Sandstone leaves and unfortunately it's mostly a bust, just like the previous trip. Despite that, I enjoyed the scenery and found some odd rocks and few fossils from new sites. A new site produced a few small plates containing woody and plant material fragments. I decided not to keep them. Closer views... Remember that interesting sandstone from the previous trip? I regretted for not taking it home so I took another opportunity

    Miocene Plants Predict Future.

  15. Hi All. I was unsure where to put this message so hopefully this place is okay. I teach 7th grade Life Science and we are soon starting our coverage of major animal types (arthropods, echinoderms, molluscs, chordtates, etc). I am hoping to put together a teaching collection that can be used each year as we do this. If there are members here who are willing to donate any/all types of durable specimens (harder for young teens to destroy) that could be used to teach students the key features of these phyla. If you are willing and able to share can you please PM me directly. I do appreciate

    Leaf Stem in shale perhaps

    Went looking for ferns and plants today. Spent my lunch hour splitting shale nearby. This one caught my eye. The ghosted pattern around the stem is interesting. I feel like it’s part of it seeing how symmetrical it is. And ideas? Length of the stem part is 2 1/8” (Don’t have a metric ruler handy) To me, the bottom portion is the base, so the shape is confusing.
  17. My friend found this stone when she was togheter with me at an middle ordovician site. She wonder if it is real plants. Anyone have an idea? Thanka for any suggestion. MARTIN

    Fossil plant material?

    I had a hunch and stopped at a road cutting today just to have a quick peek. I am still trying to figure out the age. All of the photos where taken on sight and the specimens have been left there. So no other pics.

    Trilobite? and other oddities

    Found these two pieces of rock in a parking lot in Illinois. I would not have expected to see any in these sort of rock, and they seem rather miniralized. One piece looks like hadrosaur skin impressions to my inner 10-year old self, and I figure it’s from some sort of coral. The other looks like a fragment of a calymene trilobite head and thorax. I should that alongside a trilobite for comparison. Thoughts?

    Fossil roots?

    Found in a stream in Gloucestershire. note: does not carry on on other side.
  21. Help request! I am putting together a tool for judging rock age based on very crude, whole-rock, hand-sample observations of fossil faunas/floras -- the types of observations a child or beginner could successfully make. I view this as a complement to the very fine, species-level identifications commonly employed as index fossils for individual stages, biozones, etc. Attached is what I've got so far, but I can clearly use help with corals, mollusks, plants, vertebrates, ichnofossils, and the post-Paleozoic In the attached file, vibrant orange indicates times in earth history to com
  22. Hi everyone, I haven't been able to post much lately as I've been ill for a few months so haven't been getting out hunting as much as I'd like but I've had some good luck when I have been able to get out so wanted to share some finds! All are from the Carboniferous of the Midland Valley of Scotland from several formations, I haven't gotten round to photographing everything yet so I'll post some more stuff over the next few days. First some finds from the Lower Carboniferous/Mississippian marine Blackhall Limestone. Undescribed jellyfish, Fife Coast, 3cm across. Apparently a paper d
  23. Hello all Since I can't go to school for a couple of weeks I have time to catch up with some ID's. Most of these plants and pieces of wood have been in my collection for years, thinking it's impossible to ID these because of lack of location. All of these come from old collections without labelling. I know next to nothing about plants or wood. 1: No location at all. Piece is about 10 cm wide. I am not 100% this is actually wood and not just a mineral, but I think these are growth rings. 2: This piece has been in my family for the past 3 generati
